Great service but disliked chocolate mouse dessert. Would have preferred linguine to penne pasta dish

Food was very tasty with some unique to Firebird choices. Unfortunately if you are a little hard of hearing, the place is too noisy to hold a conversation with your friends. Also, the row of deep bench seats with large pillow is not comfortable for shorter people , but there are other more comfortable seating options.

Menu is good. I would have given it a 5 Stars but we had to wait over 45 minutes from our reservation time.

Ordered wings and a steak dinner. The wings were unusually dry and were replaced by management to another set of dry wings. I the ribeye I ordered was medium well. There was pretty much no pink and the shock of it all it almost looked like a pork chop as the meat was very light in color. I would probably never eat here again. Highly disappointed

What a nice place for happy hour or quiet dinner for two. The food is predictable and beverage selection amazing. We'll find time in the next few months to return without a doubt!

Food was good, not memorable. Salad dressing was bitey but not a great deal of flavor. Steak was good not great. One from our table ordered steak medium and while she ate it, it was definitely medium rare, the same as mine, which I had ordered medium rare. Service that night was slow, which was odd as we were there later when service was slowing down so food should have come out more quickly.

The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the food was very good. Our waitress was friendly and tried to be attentive, but it is obvious that the restaurant is greatly understaffed. We ordered cocktails and wine with dinner and both took forever to come out, the wine arriving 10-15 minutes after the entree was served. When we flagged our waitress down and asked her about it, she said only that she had put the order in as she whisked away to another table. The management could easily turn this into a 4 or 5 star experience by being properly staffed. The food was very good--compliments to the chef.

This is one of our go-to restaurants because the food is almost always prepared as requested & the service very good. In all the times we've been there it has only been once that this was not true.

Good experience. The roses were a nice touch. Salmon salad and service was great. The one drawback was that we asked about the mixed berry dessert but it was described as 3 types of berries. No one said it was blended and too sweet. I wanted the whole berries.

Went here for valentine’s day this year. Great restaurant with excellent service. My one complaint is that is was noisy because of how busy it was. Other than that would definitely recommend to a friend!

We had an early Birthday celebration reservation on Valentine’s Day. 11:45 am. Didn’t appear the restaurant was ready. Balloons were coming out for Valentines’s Day. Never made it to our side. Took until 12:15 pm until our order was received. At this time the place was just starting to get full. Asked the waiter for a coke and that took extra time. Reservations were to celebrate a birthday. No birthday desert was brought to table. When we asked for a dessert to share, the spoons didn’t come with the dessert, had to wait extra time to be able to eat dessert. Visit frequently and this was the worst service yet. Guess everything can’t always be perfect.

Very good service but a few of us were disappointed in the steak. It was not very tasteful, certainly for what they charge. Atmosphere is a bit loud but lively and fun

Birthday...my wife got the filet and said it was done perfectly. I got the tenderloin salad (which I always get) and it too was exactly to my liking. Well done Firebirds!

Was an excellent choice! We’ll be back for sure perfect food and very good cocktails, appetizers were great! Deviled eggs and the coconut shrimp, rib eye was Great and Bacon wrapped filet is a solid choice too!

The Creme Brûlée cheese cake a must and the carrot cake was also amazing although my partner wouldn’t let me have more than one bite of it!

I was very disappointed when I told the host and the server that we were celebrating my grandson’s birthday and they didn’t even offer him a dessert or anything. When we received the bill it said Happy Birthday. How tacky is that???

4/5 of us had the 3-course special. We all has salmon and it was very good but the sauce was very salty. The salads were also very good. The meals took 45 minutes to be delivered and initially we got two of the 5, with the rest 5-7 minutes later. The bread also took that long to come out. Two of the meals came with the wrong side dishes. The waiter was very nice and apologetic and made good on the side dishes. I do NOT blame him as I feel it was the kitchen that was late in responding for both the main dishes and the bread. I think they also goofed on the side dishes. Al in all, it was a very uneven meal in terms of service and getting the order correct. We will be back.....but these issues need to be fixed
