My wife and I frequently dine at Firebirds. Last Monday they had a special on Prime Rib, so we reserved a booth for 6:30. We arrived at 6:15 ahead of our reservation, and we were seated at 6:45. A booth was not available, so we took a table and ordered immediately. We both ordered the Prime Rib. Unfortunately, although the night was still young, Firebirds ran out of Prime Rib! They did substitute a 12 once Ribeye at the same price, but we were disappointed that we didn’t get Prime Rib (we were the first to be substituted). When a restaurant has a two day special on Prime Rib starting on a Monday, they shouldn’t run out the first day at 7:00 p.m. we don’t know what went wrong, but we were disappointed in a restaurant that we often frequent, thus we scored them somewhat lower than usual. Poor planning happens, so we will try again in the future to get Prime Rib when it’s the special. The service was excellent and apologetic. That’s it.

I was so disappointed with my meal the other night. First my cocktail was made wrong, then the prime rib was over cooked, and the bill was wrong. I was charged for the drink I sent back. I thought this would be my new best restaurant, but I don't think so.

This was our 5th time we have enjoyed Firebirds. The meals have been constantly wonderful. Our servers have been very receptive to our requests. This last visit we all enjoyed the Prime Rib special on July 15. We all felt the quality and value was outstanding. We will definitely be back.

I took my boyfriend to celebrate his promotion at work. The food was good! He ordered the steak medium well and it came just like that, normally at other places it would be cooked well but they got his order correct here. The appitizer of wings was the best. The portions were big and for the amount of our dinner the cost was definatly worth it. I was suprised because I thought for sure our bill would be over $100.00 not to mention the drink he ordered (alcohol), it was $80 for our entire meal. That was a tea, soda, 1 alcohol drink, starter, 2 entrees and dessert (Lemon cake! Worth a try). We got dressed up but the atmosphere was more casual wear lol. I read the reviews before going here and the people who stated the servers clean while your eating is true but it's because the people who ate made a mess, even on the floor, and they just make sure to keep the area clean. It only takes them about 10mins. so it was no bother.

I decided to take a date with me so he could try the food. Turns out he really liked his Ahi Tuna that he ordered. I ordered the sesame seed salmon and it came out nice and hot cooked perfectly. Only complaint I have is that they left the fried spinach but quickly replaced it with broccoli. We had good service but think our meal came a bit quick since we had just sat down. It was probably 20 minutes into the time we sat down then got our food. But overall the food and drink were really good. Definitely plan to return in the near future.

Right off we were disappointed when we were told we would have to accept a table rather than be given a booth even though we called ahead and made reservations. It was explained to us that we had to request a booth when we made reservations. (It would have been nice if they had told us that when we called.). My Ahi Tuna salad was good, but my husband’s prime rib was not. Our particular waiter was not very attentive. Several of the other waiters stepped up and filled the gap.

Great place to take older folks for lunch. All amenities great except for the food.
Adequate lunch entrees, very poor side dishes of the mixed vegetables (smelled & tasted bad).
I keep coming back when with my parents however I eat elsewhere when not with them, and incidentally, I am a senior citizen too.

our order took forever, honestly we think we where forgotten.
we had a Piña colada and turn out terrible more like a slush, we didn't pay for it per my request. waiter was very tired probably he was running everywhere, maybe people missing, bad management for sure.
steak was rare, instead of medium. wine was about the only thing good! the rest is bad, hope they change in the future is a nice place inside. doesn't match the food and service.

The whole experience was great. Filet was cooked melt in your mouth perfect and the blue cheese cream sauce with mushrooms kicked it up to a whole new level of greatness. Summer scallops on pesto were tender and refreshing on a summer day. Service was very attentative and friendly. He went out of his way to make it memorable. The whole experience was perfect. Worth every bit of the money. Thank you I'll definetly be back.

Well, not the greatest dinner. Went there with a hot date and ended up with a tough steak and she did not enjoy her salmon. Very disappointing, but our gay server was as good of a server as you could hope for. The atmosphere and price would indicate fine dining, but the inexcusably bad food left me wishing I had chosen another eatery.

Firebirds is always a great experience. They offer a great menu and always deliver a great product.
We were there on Father's Day and they were busy. We got a great window table.
Brandon was our server, very good. Plus it is always great to see Jessica who is the assistant GM of the restaurant. She always makes you feel welcome . Plus Sergio (Managing Partner) takes a hands on approach to the restaurant and also make you feel welcome.
We never get tired of going to Firebird's.
Thank you
