The food was terrible, served cold and my steak was cold and my wife’s salmon was overcooked. We didn’t get bread until we asked. When they replaced my steak it was beyond raw. A manager never came to our table. We were asked if we were celebrating anything. It was my birthday. We saw several tables get cupcakes served with candles. One never came to our table. Our server was real nice when she was working with other tables but really cold and in a hurry when at our table. The only thing we can equate to our terrible experience and the terrible food, based on what we saw going on in the rest of this restaurant, is that my wife happened to be the only black person in the entire place, including the staff. The only thing good coming out of this restaurant is the wood burning smell on the outside. Otherwise, do Not eat here. They are terrible!!!

Service was good but unfortunately the steak did not taste right. We mentioned it to our server just so they were aware. We like this place but unfortunately tonight it was not the best.

Our waiter, Brent, was great. The flavor of the food was awesome. Only 1 slight problem we encountered (and witnessed same from another table) was our steaks were slightly undercooked. I ordered my filet medium and it was med rare, my husband's ribeye was ordered med rare and it was rare. His steak was also full of fat and some gristle. He was able to eat around that, my steak was yummy.q

The food was delicious. The service was quick, efficient, and our waitress was kind. The atmosphere didn’t seem to match the food. It wasn’t as fancy as I was picturing. It was very loud, lots of families with children. It just didn’t make sense for the price/genre of food. Overall very good though. Highly recommend: lobster queso, blue cheese filet, and the crème brûlée cheesecake was amazing.

We went on New Years Eve with a party of 5. Although they were obviously busy, we had great service, the food came quickly and was delicious. Our server was attentive. The noise level was perfect to be able to talk with each other.

I always get their BBQ ribs, and my wife always gets their salmon. I THINK some of the best ribs in town... for it not being a "rib-joint"... and my wife loves their salmon too!!

We were just there a few weeks ago and I ordered the same thing but yesterday I felt like our portions were about half the amount as the other day. Still tasted great. (Salad)

I definitely recommend Firebirds for small groups, friends, business luncheons and dinners, and couples looking for a trendy yet "smart casual" atmosphere. The food is exceptional, fresh, unique, and cooked perfectly every time. The service is good, but I feel like for the price it could be better. There are many pressures on waitstaff and restaurants in general these days, so I'm a bit more understanding than others may be and continue to tip very well. Definitely make reservations to avoid very long waits. It's a popular restaurant, and for very good reasons. Not especially a great place for small children as their menu is limited and the atmosphere is more for older children and adults. I look forward to my next visit.

This was my very first time at the restaurant I enjoyed my experience. Can't remember who the waiter was, but he was fabulous. He made sure we was good just on us. An overall experience was just wonderful. My date and I enjoyed that whole experience so thank you it was our first time. Again thank you for such a wonderful first-time experience.

Food is always delicious.
I had the chicken wings, and they may be among the best in Omaha. Indeed, in the top 5.
The service was outstanding also. Our waitress (server) was Kellyn, and she did a good job ensuring we had everything we needed.
Overall, a great experience.

We did a dinner of 8 people last night. The waiter was nice but the service in general was slow. Waited over 15 minutes to get water and bread, 20 minutes for drinks. 4 of us ordered steaks and they were ALL chewy and not cooked well. I ordered their seasonal special ny strip with Mac and cheese for $35, the steak was as I said before, sub par, and the Mac and cheese was literally tasteless. I ordered a double crown and sprite as a drink, thinking it would be $10-15, and it was $18…when I asked the waiter why the hell my short-glass mixed drink was $6 more than their custom drinks he said “yeah I know it’s pretty crazy. The best part is they use jiggers so they’re not strong pours”. What a joke. I felt robbed. Never going back to this establishment.

Biggest issue was my steak came out unevenly cut and therefore unevenly cooked. I ordered a ribeye medium rare and it was medium to well done through out. I sent it back and was give a new meal but I everyone had already finished eating by the time our server ever came to check on us so I had to eat alone. The second steak I received wasn’t even cooked medium rare. It also had been cut unevenly so one half was significantly thinner than the other half. I will still probably return and try other items on the menu. Our server was good but seemed to be covering too large of an area which made him scarce to our table.

Nice and professional service but not personable. No acknowledgement of our birthday girl or even though waiter checked her ID to serve her and I included the occasion description in the app when making the reservation. But, hey, he showed up and we did appreciate his service. Just the reason for 4 stars instead of 5!

The food was very good and other than a little slow due to packed house it all came out with good timing. We had nice elbow space at our house able and that was wonderful!

Excellent Striped Bass. Mixed Green Salad with balsamic dressing was large & full of the good stuff. My wife was very pleased with her Salmon & sides. We split a cheese cake dessert that looked good & tasted great. We enjoyed the house wines too.

Our slight experience was with our waitress. Pleasant but very forgetful.
Ordered tea with lemon and didn't receive the lemon.
Ordered a lemonade and it took forever to receive the lemonade even when she would ask about a refill it took a bit. Another waiter asked if we wanted a refill and he had it to our table in no time.
Ordered a salad to come before our meal, received it after we had started on our meal.
Asked if we would like bread before our meal. It arrived after our meal.
Our food ordered was correct and served timely.
Nothing that would detour us from returning. Just an inexperienced waitress learning her job.

Very good size portions. I had the 12oz sirloin with the vegetables. The vegetables were excellent. The steak was cooked perfectly to a medium rare. I would have to say that the only downside was the seasoning on the steak was way too salty. I had to try and scrape it off. Service was great and quick.

Firebirds internet menu is not up to date and current with what is on actual in house menu. The Kobe meatloaf and stripped bass are on the internet menu, but no longer served. And I believe dropping the meatloaf was a big mistake
