My 4 star rating is partially based on past positive experiences. This time my wife's steak, ordered to be medium, was so rare it appeared raw in the center. Of course we returned it and got apologies galore but it spoiled the evening. A self-professed steak house should be able to nail the requested steak level.

We met for dinner after a full day of business meetings. The steaks were big and cooked to everyone's satisfaction and came with a huge baked potato. The spinach salad was one of the best I’ve ever had ... nicely dressed and plentiful. However, $90 for 5 glasses of house red wine was kinda speedy. Overall, everyone enjoyed dinner.

You can always count on getting a good meal at Firebirds. I had the Salmon which was cooked to perfection! The vegetables that came with the fish were a little bit sparse but I was rather full from the large piece of Salmon and the Caesar Salad that I started my meal with. My Husband had a filet which is his standard at most restaurants. The meat was a little bit rare but the taste was still fantastic. His meal came with mashed potatoes that were equally good. Our meal started off with yummy Cosmos that we hoped to get at the Happy Hour Rate...but we ordered specific liquor like Grey Goose. All in all I highly recommend Firebirds for great food and good drinks along with wonderful service!

Wonderful food. I am new to Tucson and have had a difficult time finding a restaurant with ambience and good food. I have now found it. A great place to enjoy friends without pressure to "turn the tables" that is an added bonus. Thank you.

Sat down at 5:45 and placed an order for appetizers. The appetizers came at 6:50 pm at the same time that our entrees came. I told two managers and our waiter. Yes they comped the appetizers but with this being our first time at the restaurant , I’ll likely choose other options in the future. I simply don’t think they had a sense or urgency and the manager never apologized. 🤷🏽‍♂️

Food was good and the service was very good . My sister asked for feta cheese that was forgotten to be given included with her lunch salad. It was brought to her right away.

I indicated in my reservation that we were celebrating my Dad's birthday. There was no mention of it during the entire time we were there, very disappointing.

Always dependable for a comfort food meal. Portions are large, early dinner portions and price are great for seniors. Waitstaff always cheerful and accommodating even when they are very busy. Grilled salmon is particularly good. Would love a choice of dry rub ribs along with the java sweet sauce.

We haven't been there in a while but the Ribs are still some of the best in town, in my opinion. My wife and two friends had the 3-course meal special and they all thought it was excellent. Service could have been better, but I've had worse.

Very poorly done lighting! Hung from the ceiling, it shines directly and brightly into your face! Noisy restaurant due to its layout and design. Our server was very friendly and very attentive, just the right touch. All of the staff members were very professional. Compliments are owed to the chefs as well—our steak was tender and perfectly cooked today.

Wonderful server and highly attentive. A steakhouse should be able to master grilling steaks at medium, medium well, and well done. Disappointing

VERY busy and the servers did their best to provide the best they could do. The food was average, but then again were the prices. Nice place for a nice meal, just not all that special. However, you cannot go wrong.

Went for lunch. Was average at best. Considering that it was not very busy, service was rather slow. We have been there for dinner and it has been very good.

My Girlfriend and I were sat at a table and after about 15 minutes a cut server cleaning his section asked if we had been helped. He immediately grab someone. Then the whole time while eating, the server would come to our table and only addressed me
He did not acknowledge my girlfriend and called me Boss every time he came over.

Food was great...except, I ordered my Delmonico medium-well, and it was served rare. I sent it back to be re-fired, and it came back cooked perfectly. However, the side dish remained on the plate during the re-firing, and came back to me cold (french fries). Other than that, everything was great.

The food was good, although prices are relatively high. Service was excellent, however, even though they were shorthanded the night we were there. The noise level is surprisingly high, considering the interior architecture, which made conversation somewhat challenging. Overall, if I want to spend this amount of money to dine out in the future, I'd probably choose another place, such as Vivace instead.

The cuisine at Firebirds has always been good. The food is perfectly done and seasoned as it is delivered to the table. The menu has a good selection of beef entrees plus some non-beef selections that include salmon and shrimp. Their salads are always crisp and have great flavor. I have ordered a variety of items over the years and have always been happy with the fare. The service is attentive, and the experience is worth the wait on busy nights.

All was good except they brought our salad out the same time as the main course so by the time we finished eating our salad, the main course was not very warm. We have been at this restaurant before and this is the first time this has happened.

My guest and I both had grilled salmon. We both asked for the salmon to be cooked medium rare. Both of our salmon dishes were overcooked. We were sitting in a booth and The bench must have been covered with bar-b-que sauce. I had to take a very expensive pair of slacks to the cleaners yesterday and they were not sure that they could remove the stains.
