My steak wasn’t cooked to how I ordered it and there was more fat on it than meat. Not quality meat.

The food and service is always top notch. I had the salmon and my friend had the steak. The onion rings look amazing. I will definitely order those next time.

Seated in back in dark corner near the kitchen. Take home box for salad was paper that did not close properly. Box soggy as well as salad when got home 15 minutes later Stomach ache after eating some of it later. Surprised and disappointed as I have eaten there many times never got a paper box before *especially for a salad) and never had stomach problems after eating there or from left overs eaten later that evening.

I love the shrimp and strawberry salad. So far it has never disappointed. But, the salad cannot solve the poor service. It was Easter Sunday so I am sure there were a lot of circumstances effecting the service. I will of course come back and it will be fantastic.

Usual the food is excellent. We go here all the time. I think it was a food runner error.

I had the surf and turf. The lobster was over cooked and dry. The filet was poorly cut and practically raw with hard char on the outside (ordered medium rare), asparagus was as if it sat under a heat lamp...which is probably what happened to the entire plate. Peppercorn sauce tasted like beef stew. Onion rings were excellent.

Husband had the steak salad, which is good without fail. He also had a nice cup of chili.

We took the carrot cake home, which is my favorite.

It was my birthday so we were splurging and I ordered a lot of food. Waitress was a delight. Never have had poor service here.

My food was so bad that my husband complained for me. I didn’t want to make a big deal since he ate my steak. I ate the lobster because it was there.

Our disappointments centered around the change in quality of the fillet mignon. It was not only not particularly tender for medium rare but the flavor was also materially less than normal. We love Firebirds and in general are very happy with the service and the food. They need to check this.

I really enjoyed my visit at Firebirds! I was entertaining some guests for the holiday weekend, and my father in law specifically requested Firebirds for their amazing burgers! Great portion sizes and our server Kirsten was very attentive and accommodating for my group.

Spur of the moment to eat out and this popped up. Sat us as soon as we arrived and our server was right there. Both meals were cooked to perfection and arrived quickly. Our first visit and we were very happy. Would recommend this one for sure.

My wife and I really love the concept of this restaurant, but far too often the food is sub-par. Had the special which was a stripped bass, it was very bland and extremely small, although the fries I added were good. We ordered a cheeseburger for our daughter and said well-done as we are careful with her. It came out very pink in the middle. After we sent it back (waiter was very nice) I believe they just microwaved it for 30 seconds. Cut it in half again and it was still pink... So at that point we just gave up with that dish. The manager came out and asked if there was anything they could do and both he and the waiter were apologetic, so I do think their service is very good. They also have the best corkage policy in Virginia, so that's a major plus.

We are from Centreville and frequent Sweetwaters and Coastal Flats. We were out to Gainesville to the REgal Cinema a week ago to see the "Unplanned" move since our theaters wouldn't show it. We saw your establishment and also my hairdresser had mentioned it was one of her favorites. Courtney at Tranquility. We loved what we ordered and will be back.

Very, very limited vegetarian options. In fact, they have a grand total of 1 vegetarian entree on their menu. Period. Zero vegan options without doctoring a selecting or cobbling a meal together from side dishes. I know it’s a grill, but I really think in this day and age and in a multicultural region that a restaurant should try harder to accommodate a wide array of dietary preferences.

This being one of our favorite places to eat, it once again did not disappoint. I ordered the Aged Ribeye and my wife had the Prime Rib. My steak was good, but not as stellar as I'm used to. But typically, I get the Chile Rubbed Del Monico. Our service was otherwise impeccable. Bianka did a great job, was extremely informed on the specials and was attentive without being overbearing. We enjoyed a dessert on the house as it was our anniversary, so we are thankful for management to provide that as an option. We will return without a doubt. What a great place to eat.

Server was forgetful and didn’t listen when we placed orders, continuously brought wrong items. Was too worried about being a jokester vs good service.

Restaurant was not busy, however, we were never given a designated server. We had 3 different people wait on us and it was as if they were doing us a favor or covering. Food was ok really nothing special. Husband had an overpriced steak and my chicken was tasteless and dry. This is our 2nd attempt to like this restaurant again but it’s not as good as when they first opened. Restaurant in my opinion is too dark.
