Overall it went ok but our server struggled. Not particularly attentive, not a great listener. We had to repeat ourselves several times. He seemed to be under-trained, and didn’t really project any personality; maybe he was concentrating too hard. In any case, he was not ready for prime time. Our receipt says his name was Dennis. We like Firebirds and will be back, but this experience was a bit disappointing.

We were a large party and spent over $500 total tab. A few entrees were really good but at least three were not. Two people had ribeyes that were tough; one made the comment that he had to saw through it and the other commented that Texas Roadhouse had a superior ribeye. One person was served cold filet kabobs (ordered medium). The entire meal was not just no longer warm but was actually cold, like it came straight from the refrigerator. While some in our party had good food, the bad experiences for at least 30% of the party outweighed the good. The service and ambience were excellent.

Service was good. I had the cilantro chicken. The chicken was tough due to be overcooked. The onion rings on top were way overdone, almost hard. My friend had the salmon. It was underdone, definitely not medium well as our server told us it would be.

The table was ready as soon as we got there. We were greeted by our waiter within minutes of sitting down. He was a great waiter. Keep us up on refills or whatever we needed but didn’t make himself obvious or disrupt our conversations. It was a great experience!

Very frustrating. We “booked” on Open Table and went before our time and weren’t seated until 40 min AFTER our scheduled time. All walk ins there were seated before us. What’s the point of Open Table? Food was okay but a salad and 2 glasses of wine was $50!

Very disappointing experience. We’ve been here numerous times always enjoying ourselves and looking forward to a return visit.
We arrived on time for our reservation but waited approximately 30 minutes to be seated. We weren’t the only people as the waiting area had many folks waiting to be seated.
The food has always been good, making us want to try other menu items. This time the chicken came out lukewarm, two different times, and had a mushy texture to it.
Our waiter was terrible. We had to find other waitstaff to address the food issues, refill our drinks and provide us any attention. We were there for a birthday celebration and he failed to make it clear that for a “free birthday dessert” they had something special and if you ordered off the menu we’d be charged. The three of us there discussed his mumbling when explaining the dessert option after he fact and we’re still confused.

UPDATE: Manager reached out to us and made things right. Willing to try again!

I went there to celebrate my sister's '50th' birthday with a nice dinner. Using OpenTable was easy and the restaurant was ready to celebrate since I selected 'birthday' on the reservation. The Waitress was incredibly nice and brought a complimentary dessert plate (Excellent Presentation) with their cream brulee cheesecake!
Thank you!

Arrived for our reservation & was told that they were waiting on tables to clear. 6 top came in behind us & was seated within minutes. Understand we have 3 & they had 6 but we were seated at a 6 top. Waiter didn't know that the kitchen had ran out of the soup of the day until a runner brought out chili instead of the soup of the day. Entrees were very good but again the kitchen ran out carrot cake that was listed on the menu. Daughter was served a brownie with no icecream & the cheesecake bites tasted frozen! First impression was not good but the entrees were excellent! Never did see a manager even though I asked to speak to them.
