We were greeted by not a very pleasant gentleman….they had our reservation which was specifically for a table…he told me it would be a booth or “it will be a very long wait.” Really??? I reserved the table last week! Ok, we’ll take the booth….we had a FABULOUS waiter!! Great drinks & ok appetizers….but steaks & baked potato was NOT hot or cooked correctly. The waiter got the manager & she was great, recooked the food & brought a new, very hot potato. While she certainly tried to do costumer rescue, we paid over $100 for great drinks but an an unsatisfactory meal….wish we were given some comp or gift card to come again….that would have absolutely got us back. As it stands, probably won’t be back soon, darn it.

My boyfriend’s birthday. I mentioned it in the reservation and to the server, but nothing was offered. The food and overall service was great, but the noise level is always too loud.

Our food was wonderful and our server was friendly and attentive. The hostess however was not pleasant at all and we felt as though she did not want to be there. It was an unfortunate first impression. Once we were seated though everything was wonderful! My steak was cooked perfectly and the sides were delicious!

Firebirds never disappoints. Great food and service. Really appreciate the no-corking-fee policy. Very safe indoor seating which is spaced out for privacy and social distancing.

There was a 3 course meal special that offered a lemon whipped feta, herb and roasted peppers on toasted focaccia that was the best thing I’ve eaten in a long time. I hope they add it to the menu!!

Our server, Echo, was fantastic. She was patient with us when the couple with whom we were doing was late, great at checking in with us frequently (but not obnoxiously) very pleasant even when business picked up.

Reservations at 5:45. Seated immediately. Ordered. Did not receive entrees until 7:20. Yes-1 hour and 35 minutes later. We did have one appetizer-which was also extremely late. Excuse was short staff in kitchen. This was a Monday! Our waiter was great. Food was not worth waiting for. Ordered steak salad medium. Steak was burnt. Should have been informed upon arrival that food would be awhile-we would have chosen to go elsewhere. Not sure if this is indicative of the chain or this broken link. Will not dine here again.

I guess I am getting old and the noise was loud. Maybe if we sat somewhere else it would have been quieter. Not fun being old and hearing not so good.

We were looking for a nice night out for our Anniversary and Firebirds did not disappoint!! The service was excellent. Hubby got the surf and turf - wow!! The lobster was perfectly cooked. The steaks were cooked exactly to our liking. The baked potatoes were just right. The lemon cake with blueberries was an experience all into itself!

Highly recommend this place!! We will definitely be back!! Thank you for a great anniversary dinner!

Worst experience by far at this establishment. The food was nearly awful, although the wait staff was exceptional as always. The manager did her best to rectify the situation, and was wonderful about the whole thing. The quality of food was the only issue. I will be back eventually and hope for a better meal than this time. With the prices charged, I'd expect better quality. Love this place, sincerely hope this was just one bad night.

Server gave incorrect information of ingredients in au gratin potatoes. My steak was over cooked. My husband’s salmon was cold. My husband became physically ill within 5 hours of eating salmon.
Be careful if you chose to eat at Firebirds Wood Fire Grill.

We have been to Firebirds frequently and we really enjoy it. We love the egg roll appetizers, the salmon is always very good which is what I usually get. Our waitress was very friendly and paid attention to us during our meal. Cannot judge any dessert as we are always to full to have any.

The first three wines we tried to order, they were out of, but now we understand you can bring your own wine without a corkage fee, so next time we will do that. Our steaks were quite rare when we ordered medium rare, but they fixed it immediately. I would go back again

As usual, Firebirds is not a quiet place to go for an evening out. The layout of the restaurant is such that it is quite noisy. We find Bonefish Grill to be a much calmer place, but we like the food at Firebirds so go there on occasion. The service was excellent and fast, and the food delicious and well-presented.

After seating we waited a long time before a server noticed we had yet been helped. The server we did receive was a unique young man who went out of his way to help us. Food took along time. Three chicken orders were all over cooked and dry. Pineapple Chicken had very little sauce. BBQ sauce on ribs is something to be desired. Steak was cooked correctly. Spent way to much money for the quality of food.
