The service was great and the food was good, both for the appetizer and main course. Only complaint was that the lobster was a bit over cooked

Great food and service. Made a special dinner special. It is noisy though. Wish they would ask men to take off their caps/hats though. Very annoying.

Food was very good. Wife's filet mignon was cooked spot on (medium rare +). This is very rare indeed (no pun intended!). Maybe 20% of the time when she orders steak do they cook it the way she likes. Chicken was good too (not the best I've had, but good nonetheless). Maybe an add'l side with dinner orders could be added. Merlot wine that was ordered was also nice.

We love Firebirds! Everything was great, including our server (Maureen???)!
The noise level was fine when we first arrived at 6, but grew increasingly louder by the time we left.
That’s just the way it is though when you get a bigger crowds filled with families. Crowds means business and that’s
Good for you!

This used to be a favorite place. Party of 12... steaks were not good or tender. Ribeyes weren’t tasty, and filets weren’t tender. Everyone at the table had their food except for one child, after 10 min or so , pointed this out to waitress and was told “the kitchen is swamped”.
We were celebrating a 25th anniversary and it just wasn’t up to par. Sorry.

We loved the appetizer and our waitress was awesome! We enjoyed our steaks but my husbands prime rib, which he ordered rare, was cold, and my sirloin was amazing but it was undercooked.

Your reception staff is abysmal. My wife and I checked in to have three people share giddy high School laughter when we arrived to check in. None of the three could look us in the eye so I have no idea of the laughter, but they should all be removed from their positions if “reception” is there expertise. They possess zero levels of those skills. When we arrive at other restaurants, the reception team is welcoming. If service is your focus, please remove the three people from your employment. Whatever limited people skills they possess, their lack of “reception” is ptitful. You would do better to remove them from your employment.

Ate here a few times before, food always good. The atmosphere is great, very romantic and quiet. My wife and I went here recently for our 38th Anniversary. Service was very good, but we both ordered the prime rib and it was mediocre at best. Cooked well to medium-rare, but very fatty and not a good value. The rest of the dinner was just ok as well. Lots of places around with much better prime rib.

I Had to send my steak back to be cooked a little more. But I received an entirely new filet and new side! The taste was absolutely amazing! Staff was friendly, lighting was very appropriate. Noise was on the higher side with the kitchen being right there, but this place will definitely be on my top 3 list!

Always enjoy our visits to Firebirds either for a special occasion or a quick bite to eat. The service has always been good and the food as well as drink options are extensive. Would be nice if they had a few more food options under $20

We really like Firebirds. We come often; used to be almost every Sunday.

It is often our "go-to" spot for special occasion as well as just family dinner. Our large family gets together almost every Sunday for dinner.

Our only complaint is that invariably our large group - 12, plus a high chair, are seated at a long table (tables shoved together). I understand that most restaurants really have no other way to handle large groups but it does make visiting almost impossible - really just with the person across from you and to each side. When the whole point is to share time and food with family - to reconnect, that makes it somewhat difficult.

This particular visit was for Father's Day. So my son sat at one end, my son-in-law at the other and mu husband right in the middle. My daughter at the far end never got to visit with her brother and my daughter-in-law never got to visit with her brother-in-law, But the food was terrific and the service was absolutely excellent! I tipped accordingly!

The service was really bad. My steak wasn't cooked right and I couldn't even tell anyone because our sever never came back to our table. I spent 150.00 their to give my husband a good Father's Day dinner and we both left wishing we never went. A fast food restaurant would have been better than this place.

We had lunch on Fathers Day and it was excellent. My husband's all time favorite is the spinach salad and he orders it nearly every time we go to Firebirds. As a special bonus there were at 2 different tables the most beautiful very young little boys eating lunch with their fathers. It was a wonderful experience. We will return again and again. We would recommend this place to everyone.

The Filets were very tender and delicious, and we are very picky about our steaks.
You did not have butter :( and did not have the Wedge Salad anymore :( and no sweet potato fries.
Maurinee was an excellent waitress.
Noise level was a bit too high for us, as conversations were difficult from across the table. Looking at the acousits, I am not sure if that could be fixed.
We would come back again since the steaks were so good.

There are five of us, we all ordered our steaks medium rare mine came out medium. The waiter said no problem they would redo it and make it right. My next steak brought out by the manager was rare, the manager apologized said he would take my steak back throw it on the grill and make sure it came out right. Now I’m not sure how many health code violations were involved here but he brought me back my same steak over cooked. seriously this place charges on average $30 for a steak and they will take it after it’s been served to a customer and throw back on their grill!!?? 5 of us went for dinner, five of us will never come back. And unfortunately for Firebird we are from five different families. They did take my steak off the total bill, but I would have preferred to eat a correctly prepared steak with my friends. The bread was good, and I had a fully loaded baked potato which was good.

Amina was our server and was pleasant and welcoming. My food arrived at room temperature. It was cooked perfectly but obviously sat for a while before being served. The meal was in celebration of my birthday. I’m always surprised when the Open Table website asks about special occasions for dining but there is no recognition by the restaurant of the special occasion.
