Fantastic restaurant for a well cooked and delicious meal. Johanna, our waitress, was pleasant and attentive. Meals were delivered quickly and to order. Reservations are a must for this place to avoid a long wait to be seated.

We usually go to the Leesburg one so I was a little disapointed in this trip. Both my sister and my baked potato was almost cold to where the butter and cheese did not melt. One of the guests ordered a portabello hamburger which you do not have and got the sandwich he did not like. I would have thought when he said hamburger the waitress would have told him there was not one. I had asked for extra butter and cheese but, did not get it. Two of the steaks were supposed to be medium well and they came medium. At Leesburg the manager goes around and asks if you are happy with the meal and if everything is going o.k. We did not see a manager only the waitresses. To sum it up best most of the people in our party of 11 said they would have preferred Outback.

We were seated on time, aligned with our reservation. The service was outstanding and the food was seasoned and cooked to perfection--and we had several different requests for the ways the meals were to be cooked, and every one of them was perfect.

Great service, lovely atmosphere. Had one issue, my hamburger had bits of chicken fingers (all of them together made up the length of a whole finger, under the bun) on it. The manager lady was very nice and apologized, said she’d speak to the kitchen. My wife enjoyed her prime rib, she said it was a bit cold but the flavor was good. We didn’t complain. Thank you for seating us quickly, glad we had reservations!

Great experience. First time eating there. Great wait staff team, we were there to celebrate a birthday (she's 90!) and the server was very kind and gave my mother in law a card signed by the staff and our dessert came out with a candle in it. Nothing overdone, very genuine. Will be back as soon as possible!

I was sitting close to the bar facing it and I watched the bartender with a blonde ponytail sit there and put her fingers in her mouth a couple times and then start picking up things people in Food Service need to know to keep their hands out of their mouth and hair but thankfully I don't drink so I didn't have to worry about her touching my things

Decent steak, nothing to write home about. Really good sides. My steak came out a fair amount undercooked and wife's was over (we ordered the same temperature- medium). Wines were all pricy. Great service and vibe.

We have been to Firebirds a lot and always bring our family when they are in town. This time our server kept telling us that she could win a free slice of cheesecake if we bought something off the specials menu. It was very uncomfortable the amount of times it was referenced. It caught me off guard as i never had that issue before with service.

I went with my family for my birthday and it was a great experience. Bailey was our server and was fantastic. The entire staff was incredibly friendly, caring and attentive. We had a wonderful time. The cherry on top was the staff wrote a handwritten birthday card and brought a dessert. Incredibly touching. Thanks again for being so great! Our family will continue to celebrate our happiness with you.

Overall the experience was entirely ordinary, there is simply nothing extra to mention. The food was okay, the server was as expected when the wait staff is under trained and too young to understand what a proper dining experience could be. Our meals where satisfactory but items where missing causing members of the party to wait until all items were corrected. Nothing was egregiously wrong so in some regards that would constitute a success. For the money there are loads of other places that just generally do a better job.

Went there this past weekend to celebrate the 1-year anniversary of the passing of a relative. Not only was the food and service great as always, but the GM and entire team did some extra things for our family which made the night even more special. Highly recommend a visit.

This is our favorite restaurant in Gainesville. The food is consistently high quality and fresh, the service is almost always excellent, and it has a great atmosphere. It's always busy, but never too loud to have a good conversation at your table. Also, they never rush us. They have a good menu with something for everyone. We always get the smoked wings, the salmon always tastes incredible, and the salads are super fresh.

They are completely OVER PRICED! The quality they serve for the price they pay is a complete insult and frankly highway robbery! One of my guests said I could have gotten this steak at a Ponderosa. A Ponderosa for goodness sake!!! Unfortunately, it was true. What you got for the money they charge was laughable, really. We went for a special occasion birthday celebration really thought we'd be going somewhere that would give us found memories. Instead we all left thoroughly disappointed. With memories alright but none of them good.
