    Great food, and even though it was a Saturday night, we made a reservation and got in without a problem. Service was also terrific. The only somewhat negative thing I would say is the volume of noise, but that’s not the restaurants fault. When you get a group of people together they can’t seem to speak in a normal tone of voice and everyone starts trying to get louder and louder. We love going here!

    It was a busy Saturday night but our service experience was exceptionally slow . We entered 30 minutes before our reservation and sat in the bar area to grab a drink . It took 10 minutes for our order to be taken , and then an additional 20 to be served . Our party sat down at our reservation as our drinks arrived The floor manager was very apologetic , and I mentioned that it was a busy night , not a problem , expecting our dinner service to be better . Once seated , our order was not taken for about 20 minutes . A server kindly checked in on us and mentioned she wasn’t our server but would take our order , brought us bread but did not bring waters as requested . Our food order was then an additional 30 minutes to arrive , and an additional drinks order was another 20 minutes on top of that . Even though many staff members were gracious , they were obviously overworked and disorganized . Food was perfectly fine once arrived , but taking such a slow service pace , especially for drinks created a hard environment to enjoy our meal

    Nice space. Great burgers and beer. Super fries. Wildly overpriced wine list. Chaotic service. Impossible noise level. Undrinkable Cosmo returned. Loved the no-salt aspect of vegetable sides but overcooked and could use SOME spicing. Our guests' choice to dine with you. She was a fan but declared herself done with dining at Firebirds. Sorry.

    This was our first visit to Firebirds and we were very disappointed! The wait for our dinners was extremely long. When it did arrive, the pineapple chicken was very overcooked. A steak, ordered medium rare, was beyond well done resembling a piece of leather. My husband’s dinner never arrived to our table and the order had to be put in again. The only enjoyable part of our experience was the lemon blueberry cake. We have no plans to return to Firebirds.

    We order a hot dip and by the time we got it, the do was cold. I also ordered the brownie hot fudge sundae but the brownie was cold with a scoop of ice cream on top. Each time food was returned they only threw it in the microwave and brought the food back to my table. I don't see me returning because I was not pleased with the overall food especially for the price I paid.

    The hostess, waiter, and other staff were super great. Our food was absolutely delicious. However, the noise level was very high and we just about had to yell at each other during dinner. Otherwise, I would have given this a too rating.

    We haven’t been to this restaurant in quite some time as our previous two visits were extremely poor experiences. Clearly they have rectified the issues plaguing them from Before as tonight everything was great. Service was quick and friendly, leaving us wanting for nothing. Food was delivered hot, quickly, and correctly and was outstanding. Thrilled that the quality is back and we will be returning regularly again!

    We went as a family with my MIL and BIL for Mother's Day. We were seated promptly and greeted shortly afterwards. The menu is varied and offered something for everyone...I think most of us were pretty happy with our meals. We ordered the deviled eggs as an appetizer and they were delish. My husband ordered the Powerhouse salad (he has dietary restrictions and had ordered it before and enjoys it a lot). Two of us ordered the Durango Burger and were pleased with its preparation. My BIL ordered a chicken & pasta dish and he was happy with his selection. I ordered the sirloin with a loaded baked potato - it was pretty good but was WAAAAY too salty. So if you're concerned with your salt intake stay away from that!! I wish I had just ordered the shrimp & strawberry salad (which I know is good). Next time I'll go back to the salad but it was Mother's Day so I thought what the heck!! We ordered one Tiramasu cheesecake to share and it was amazing and just the right amount for everyone to have a few bites. We lingered after dinner talking a bit as it was Mother's Day but yes, we were pleased overall and will return again.

    We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary and our server, Jonah, went above and beyond to make it a wonderful experience. Everything was on point - from drinks to bread to the melt-in-your-mouth smokiness of the steaks to the beautiful crème brûlée cheesecake. Really a perfect visit from start to finish.

    I was disappointed with our service. After quickly checking in with us to see if what we wanted to drink, our waiter disappeared for a while. (>30 mins)Then, we flagged down another waiter and he stepped in. Then he got my order wrong.
