Bella was a wonderful server, friendly and helpful. My "medium" prime rib was pretty rare, but delicious nonetheless. Thanks!

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.

Went for filet mignon day and had great meal at reduced price. Food is always great and they often have specials. Waiter wasn't paying attention and mixed up my salad order. But quickly corrected.

Food wars, as always, delicious. Portions are always appropriate and the server was extremely professional. The server also made sure that our drinks were filled and getting the meal in the manner we ordered. .

Our anniversary dinner was fantastic. The waitress brought us a desert and a card everyone signed. So sweet!! The manager even stopped by to thank us for coming. This is the reason we come back every year!!

Food and service was excellent. Extremely noisy and had to take out my hearing aids. Had prime rib and was very good and cooked perfectly. However, steak knives used just destroyed the meat. Either wrong knives or need to be replaced.

It was my mother in laws bday. Three of us ordered prime rib. It was tough and had to taste. To be honest outback has a better prime rib than Firebirds.

It is a lot of money to spend for not so good tasting and firm prime rib.

When the manager came over all he said was that he was sorry. No mention of, oh I will take half off of your meal since it was x3.

Poor management. Will not be back.

I forget that this is not a place to go to on a Saturday night. The best experiences we have had here have been on a week night when it was not busy. This time our cuts of steak were not great and my husbands was super thin and over cooked. We will not go again on a weekend. Stick with the weekdays when they take their time cooking.

I met a friend for lunch. I had my first drink of Prosecco and really enjoyed it. We both enjoyed lunch entree salads (hers the steak, mine shrimp & strawberries), and we finished with a shared Creme Brulet cheesecake. Good company, delicious meal, no complaints at all!

Mediocre food and friendly, but non attentive staff. Apps were pretty good and kids meals good value but entrees missed the mark and were way overpriced. Staff was very nice but desperately in need of training.

Had to wait an extra 15 minutes beyond reservations -- not their fault, the place was packed! Suggest you always make reservations or you might have a 2 hour seating time!

My husband and I along with a couple of our friends came to celebrate my birthday. I made reservations and like most restaurants on weekends we had to wait a little passed our reservation time. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food was extras always. If I could give one recommendation it would be to ask the people who clear and clean the tables to dry the table and seats off before seating your guests. It gross to sit on a wet seat especially if you’re in nice clothes and to put your hands all over a wet table. Thanks

We love Firebirds, and go fairly frequently. Food is always very good. We did not have very good service last night. We asked for water with lemon with our other drinks. No lemon, asked for it again, from someone else, who brought it over. We ordered a glass of wine and a Soda. Soda was brought. Wine did not show up until after we were through with our salads. I had a clear view of the bar, with my wine glass sitting there for quite some time. Table seated right behind us, was seated after us. They got salads and drinks about 10 minutes before we did, and we ordered as soon as a server came to the table, with no appetizers. My water glass was empty after the first 10 minutes, and no offer to refill. My husband's soda was empty, and we had to ask another server for a soda. Disappointed. Food as usual great, though. As a former restaurant manager myself, disappointed with the service.

The price for the special was good, but roast beef was not very tender and we asked
to have the broccoli cooked well and it was barely cooked. A bit disappointing overall.
