I rated a 3 star instead of a two star because the restaurant may have had an “off” night; however, I would not return.

First the positives - the servers were very pleasant and attentive and the menu has variety for most tastes. From the looks of the crowd, this appears to be a popular place.

Negatives - while the salads were wonderful, the entrees were not very good, especially for the price. My mother’s salmon was over cooked. My fillet was cooked correctly but the quality of the meat was mediocre. My baked potato did not have the “loaded” accompaniments on the side (as ordered) and were skimpy. I can’t remember what my father ate but his rating of the meal was “meh”.

I expected better quality of ingredients and preparation for the price, but got the quality on par with the big chain restaurants one sees in every town (won’t name them here).

I love this restaurant but the customer service has now become excessive. Between the server and the manager our discussion was constantly interrupted to ask if everything was wonderful. Food is always very good but the soup wasn’t up to par this time. We did not complain yet it was taken off of our bill.

Firebirds has good food and reasonable prices. Overall is rate them a 5 but this overland park location was very dissapointing . Other locations have been very enjoyable. I take my whole family there when I visit them. The overland park location service was horrible. 20 minute wait to get greated and drinks ordered. No drink refills and asked for A1 for my steak and never got it. The ribeye had more fat then any other ribeye I had eaten before. I was going to reach out to corporate however they have no option for complaints or comments from customers. They should have a department to address customers concerns.

Not fantastic food but good service. Nice place. Seems nice. I dislike it when the restaurant is mostly empty and you get put really close to the few people in the restaurant to make it easy for the servers. I can see why you would do that but I hate hearing others' conversations, especially when the place is mostly empty.

Our server was excellent. But the noise level for older folks is awful. The coconut shrimp and salad were excellent. The meatloaf too mushy. But we will try it again on a week night.

We found this place very mediocre. The noise level is high as in difficulty hearing your tablemates. One in our four got prime rib (very tough, barely warm) two got salmon cooked 2 different ways (good) and one got beef-kabobs (okay~meat fatty). Our server Grace was excellent and the drinks were very good. Decent pour. After spending about $100 including tip I didn’t think it was worth it.

The bar atmosphere was good but the tables were small. Bigger groups would be a challenge. The bar menu was great for happy hour and we liked the pretzels. I ordered a medium rare ribeye with lobster tail. The steak was medium which does not bother me but it was one of the toughest steaks I've had in years. The lobster was good and the service was good.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We decided on it after reviewing the broad scope of their menu. My wife ordered an end cut of Prime Rip (she likes well done meats) and I had a rib eye steak. Both were will prepared and came with side dishes which we also found tasty. For desert we took home a creme brule and a chocolate brownie. The brownie came with a scoop of ice cream and some caramel sauce, both of which were in separate containers. Thus, it was easy to heat the brown and apply the ice cream and sauce later in the evening. The restaurant is attractive and the sound levels were low enough that we could carry on a conversation.

I have never been here before. I decided to bring a special girl in my life here for our first data and we both got the prime rib. It might have been some of the best prime rib I have ever had. Also, the port mushrooms side is amazing.

We love Firebirds, and have recommended it to so many of our friends. We brought friends and the chef came out and apologized that they had lost our order. They offered to bring us an appetizer and they did. When the food came it was as good as always. And I found an appetizer that I would order as a meal for next time.

This is the 3rd time in probably the 20 times we've been there that something has been wrong we our order. But obviously when they get it right we love it.

We were very disappointed by our overall experience at Firebirds. We arrived before our reservation time of 7:15pm and had to wait almost 30 minutes to be seated. My husband’s drink didn’t arrive until we asked about it halfway through our salad course. My steak, which was ordered medium well, arrived undercooked. I asked for it to be cooked as i specified, and it was returned to me well done.

The filet mignon was one of the best I've had. The fall dinner special included 3 courses (filet included) for $29.99. The only suggestion I would have would be to expand the beer menu and include draft options.

Firebird has potential to be a good restaurant, but it failed to live up to the potential.
First, no beer list or menu. Then they are "out" of beer mentioned by waiter that I order. Good restaurant would have a list or menu with the choices and prices.
Ordered a dinner salad to go with salmon entree. Long wait. Entree arrives but no salad arrives. I ask a waiter about the salad. Waiter does not know anything about any salad. Waiter goes to investigate. Waiter returns and says that the Order for salad was lost, and they bring the salad out (no charge) when I am half way through the entree. Many people are serving you, so there are many opportunities for screwups and mistakes. Food was good, the servers were polite, but the service system was not good.
