We had a wonderful time at Firebirds for my husband’s 80th birthday. The manager and waitstaff were fantastic! And the food came out just perfect. Firebirds is our special place to go. We will be back!

The food and service were great but they crammed 7 of us in a corner booth plus a chair at the opening. We were happy to get a reservation but really this was uncomfortable! There was minimal room on the table for plates and drinks. Luckily, the waitress took away unneeded items quickly. When I made the reservation I said it was a special occasion and still we were crammed in. Also, the high noise level detracted from the dining experience.

Good atmosphere and service with mediocre food. Advertised seasoned fries—got regular plain diner-style. Advertised lime-cilantro flavoring on shrimp—got plain. Disappointed.

I was pleasantly surprised. The food was wonderful. My loaded potato wasn’t hot (my cheese never melted) but that was okay because my food filled me up so I took my potato home to eat later.

I’ll be back!

I was pleasantly surprised to find this restaraunt. I was visiting in Warrenton and discovered it. The salad was fresh and just the right size. I was able to have a conversation throughout the time there without having to shout, despite the high ceilings and many tables.

Stephanie our server was great. The salads didn't come out before the main dishes, but she was all over it and had taken them off our bill quickly. Very friendly and the food was great!

The food was overall very good, like the tuna appetizer, excellent as well as the baby back ribs! However, filet Mignon (medium) was below par from other steak houses, not flavorful, rather dry. Server not attentive to need for refill of drinks and other requests.

Great place, clean & quiet. Appetizers were better than my entree. I do not sending food back so my dissatisfaction with the cooking of my steak is on me.

Went Sunday for lunch - was not very crowded. The food was excellent - we both had salads and enjoyed. The service, however, was horrible. I know restaurants are struggling to find help and I get that. That being said, it took 10 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us after being seated and our server was hard to find throughout our dining experience. Hopefully this situation is remedied soon - we will definitely be back (our service and food were both excellent on Friday night).

One of my favorite restaurants was Firebirds, but not anymore. I had an important meeting with my church members and I recommended Firebirds to have great service with awesome food.
I made a reservation for 7 party, but they gave us a table for 5 people. They just added 2 more chairs. I asked them the bigger table, but their answer was they can give us two separate booster seats. Seriously? I don't wanna sit separately with my friends.

When we had food, we really didn't have enough space to put our food plates. I was very unpleasant and disappointed.

This was my first bad experience at Firebirds. I ordered my steak medium (warm pink center), but it came out very rare - blood red and still chilled in the center. I don't usually like to send food back (particularly because you end up getting what happened to me next), but I couldn't eat it as it was. When it came back, it was well done - brown and dry throughout and almost no steak flavor whatsoever. It's as if the chef was offended that I had the nerve to send his food back and intentionally sent back a steak that more closely resembled a hockey puck.

With this said, I've had many very good experiences at Firebirds and this was the first unacceptable one.

They ran out of a bunch of food/bread/straws and then acted like it was our fault we came to eat there. No warning that half the menu wasn't available, and the manager just made excuses on why there wasn't any food. He said it was that because fathers day was the day before, and it happens all the time, in which case you would think they would be prepared for it.
Wouldn't recommend going there.

Food was not good. Everything arrived luke warm, prime rib was tough and worst we’ve had at a restaurant, service was not any better. Go to one of the Great American restaurants, so much better.

I rarely write a review but when I do, it’s a constructive critique and not from a negative place. All but one plate of our food was not acceptable; however, the appetizers were great. We believe the waitress was overwhelmed with the amount of people needed to be served with her tables (not just our table of 5). So, non acceptable food mixed with less than nice service on a Father’s Day was not ideal. We did still tip $20 on an $80 bill. No need for rudeness to be reciprocated, especially to all the great servers out there. Do better, Firebirds Gainesville.
