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.

Always disappointed that a steak restaurant doesn’t have sauces like béarnaise. Server was good but getting the food took a lot longer than it normally does.

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.

It was so crowded with noisy businessmen that it was difficult to carry on a conversation. My husband’s steak was very tough and full of grissle. Not sure it was worth the money.

Great service. We’ve been here before and every time we get the prime rib it’s always great however this night we thought we would try a few steaks. We should have stayed with the prime rib the steaks were terrible my wife had the Fillet and I had the Aged Ribeye. I’m assuming it was just a bad night for the cuts of meats they had to choose from. Hopefully!

The service was great this time. Although, I have to say that I have been there many times, and, generally speaking, the service is above average, but not to the level that you would expect for the type of restaurant and cost of food. But, overall, I would give them a very good with some outliers.

Food was very good too. I was happy with everything we ordered. I'm generally happy with everything we order.

The atmosphere is great. Nice restaurant and nice bar area. Nice outdoor area for summer and fall dining. It can get crowded, so come before six on weekends if you want a chance of eating before six. Otherwise, make a reservation.
