Great food and service. Although it amazes me they can't include a free salad, which probably costs them $.50 pp, when the dinner is $25

We met friends for the filet mignon special. It was so good. We started in the bar for happy hour for the Double Black Diamond martins which are my favorite. Our waiter was excellent & our waitress serving us was great. Hopefully that special will be back. I would like to see the happy hour prices in the dining room also instead of only in the bar or patio area.

Excellent filet and at $19.95 the price was unbeatable. Much better than the Keg. Felt safe during covid-19.

Our service was outstanding. We chose to eat on the patio due to COVID. Our waitress was very attentive, very friendly, and would check on us in a pleasant timely manner. We had the filet with a loaded baked potato. The filet was very tender and seasoned just the right amount. The baked potato was loaded with butter, sour cream, bacon and cheese. My only complaint would be the skin was overly salted so I ended up scraping most of the salt off. We also enjoyed happy hour before our dinner. The lightly breaded cauliflower appetizer was delicious, loved it. We ordered the Bavarian soft pretzel which was perfect with the beer cheese dipping sauce. A Bavarian hot mustard also accompanied the pretzel but we preferred the cheese dip. All in all, a pleasant delicious dinner outing at Firebirds.

Firebirds is my first choice when dining out. I feel they are going above and beyond to provide a safe dining experience. There’s partitions between the booths and all servers are wearing masks.
The food never disappoints. We enjoyed the Super Foods Ahi Salad, the salmon dinner, and the spicy chicken pasta. Yummy!

We had a delightful dinner with friends and enjoyed some of the new menu items. When our server let us know that he got stiffed on a 200.00 bill with no tip we did the right thing and paid part of his lost tip for him. Happy Holidays

This restaurant should not serve steak It was so tough that I ate 4 bites. I gave 1/3 to my wife and she had 2 bites. We then went to Fredys and had good hamburger. Its sad that firebirds gets so many good reviews. I think the people that go to firebirds think this is good food because they THINK that the rich people go there

We met a friend for a holiday "celebration" The bar area was wonderfully quiet so we could talk quietly and enjoy the time together. Our server, Mark, was great! The food is always good ...not ever a problem. Firebirds one of our favorites ...at the bar area and on one of the patios especially.

The salmon was very good and cooked so that it remained moist and not dry. My husband's steak was cooked to his liking. We had scalloped potatoes as a side. Delicious. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. It's a nice place for a late lunch. They have done a great job of arranging separation of booths and tables for social distancing.

We were seated near the kitchen with no recognition or mention of the fact that the hood fan was broken. Quickly, it was discovered as a member of my group recently had sinus surgery and was particularly sensitive to the smoke. Our server was very nice in relocating us further from the offending area. The new york strip special was actually quite tough and salty. Not the Birthday luncheon we had planned after a long time of being home quarantined.

I’ve been to Firebirds a number of times but this time around the food was pretty mediocre, and trying to be safe, difficult. Getting through the bar area and social distancing is impossible. There were 4 of us. Initially we were seated in a small booth. Impossible to social distance 6 feet. We complained and were seated in a larger booth. The food was pretty ordinary and a bit expensive for the quality. The major problem is I just don’t feel safe there. It doesn’t feel like management and staff take Covid seriously.

Food and service here are always excellent. It is my very favorite restaurant and always go here for special occasions. Mark is usually the server I request; however he was not there on our visit. Juliet was our server and did an excellent job. My only complaint is the sesame salmon has been removed from the menu and it was my very favorite.

Hadn’t been here in a long while and was a little disappointed this time. The atmosphere and “shine” I remembered just wasn’t there. The floors were dirty and bathroom unkempt. The food service was great, but the food was mediocre. The prime rib was a huge let down. Tough, salty and the flavor not to my liking at all. Was a big waste of money. My family thought the filet mignon was good though. Best part of the meal was the creme brûlée cheesecake.

Staff were very friendly, steak was wonderful, decaf coffee was best I’ve ever had. The dining room was stunning with high beamed ceilings. Hubby thought it made it less cozy though. Our server was quick to bring items we asked for but wish she would have checked in after we started eating more quickly and throughout the meal. Broccoli was cooked as I requested which I appreciated. It needed to be hotter so it would have melted the butter I requested. Hubby enjoyed all his food especially au gratin potatoes.

In light of COVID, we are advised to eat outside. The patio at Firebirds is small but comfortable and they do have heaters. Were there for lunch so didn't need the heaters. The service is always good and the servers very friendly and helpful.
