We prefer this restaurant at lunchtime as it’s so noisy at night. Very hard to understand even the person sitting next to me! However, the food is good, some combinations really don’t work. Overall if sticking with fish or steak, it is quite good!

Good food. Very noisy! They really need to do something about the acoustics here. We had to wait a bit for our table, despite reservation.

We were a party of six for lunch. Margo was our server. She was excellent! The entree’s were all very good, as were the desserts. The only negative was the New England clam chowder was too spicy, too much “heat.” So much that it made me sick that night, and I only had a cup. 🥺. The chowder would have been excellent without it being spicy hot. It had great flavor.

Firebirds is great place to eat but hard to get a table for a large group. Open table was helpful in getting a table without getting on the phone to and go find a time and table...

We had a great experience and a very wonderful meal. The occasion was a celebration of my wife’s birthday. The waitress was very accommodating and helpful throughout our entire meal. We especially enjoyed the free dessert that was provided for my wife’s birthday. I highly reccommend this restaurant.

The food was so so and a little over priced. Learned my lesson to never order meatloaf at a restaurant. Pretty much looked like my catfood and had the same pate texture. The other food was decent but not worth the high price.

I always enjoy Firebirds. It's a chain, but it's a small chain which focuses on very well prepared meals. I've never had a bad meal here.

Probably won't go back. My daughters pasta was very spicy-she did not want to say anything and ruin our dinner or make a scene so she kept quiet. My rib eye had too much rub on it. The drinks were very watered down. Our food was served and my daughter had no silverware. We asked but did not receive it until all of our food was cold. Disappointing dinner

Something has changed. Not sure what it is, but all the food tastes different. Not as good as it used to be. We were going to buy a bottle of wine until we saw that bottle the Napa wine we chose from the menu was actually a wi e by the same name but different CA location, that actually sells for less than the wine they were advertising. We just feel cheated going there now.

Steak place, I was excited to try the meatloaf, but it looked like a can of pate cat food dumped on my plate! Didn't taste like great ground sirloin as I expected but either lots of filler or crappy meat. So disappointed and almost inedible.

We go here all of the time but today it was just...off
Ordered the grilled chicken, and it was awful. SO dry and overcooked I couldn't eat it. I sat for 15+ minutes while everyone else ate so they could recook the meal and... nothing. No discount. No comped meal. Kiddo's Mac and cheese was missing the cheese.
The waitstaff was excellent, but for the price, I feel like you should have your food spot on.

The food was amazing as always. The steak was perfectly cooked as ordered. Service was attentive. The server overheard my daughter discussed about my birthday cake she brought me a yummy surprise dessert for my birthday. That was very thoughtful and it made my day. Firebirds is a great place all around.

My husband and I love this place. I work with restaurant email marketing and I came across their emails plenty of times so we decided to give it a go. So far, we have visited this place 3 times. All of these times ordered drinks, appetizer, dessert and entrees. The steaks are aged and delicious, so tender, they melt in your mouth. The drinks are always delicious and if you don't particularly like yours they would literally make it again until you are satisfied. The appetizers and the desserts are delightful. We just truly, truly love this restaurant and it has become a staple in our marriage. Give it a try!

One steak arrived grossly over cooked. The waitress had already left the table when it was discovered and we had trouble getting someone back. Finally, a mgr came, confirmed well-done and not med rare and took it back, promising a quick replacement. It finally came after everyone else was finished, so I just took it home. Too slow.
