Our waiter forgot a Diet Coke twice. Had to remind him and he still forgot it. My friend who is very allergic to gluten. Is out of commission for weeks if he has it. He asked the server to make sure gluten free. They bring it out he asked the server is this gluten free. The server said I don’t know but I can check. 10 minutes later he comes back and we asked again if it was gluten free. Waiter never came back. You pride yourself on a gluten free menu, then refuse to take percussions with it. Very unimpressed. Wasn’t busy at all.
Nothing better than the Black Diamond drink along with a blackberry margarita! Food was good and the service was excellent!!
Service and dinner was great. I will be back again.
Delicious food and friendly atmosphere . Great date night spot
Fantastic meal on the patio! Our first time here and our server recommended the perfect drinks for our individual preferences! Food was great, ambiance wonderful, the entire staff was very professional yet friendly! Can’t wait to come back!
Greeted by a friendly hostess and said our table would be ready in a few minutes. We were about 10 minutes early for our reservation. She seated us within 5 minutes.
Server was great!! She was awesome with recommendations and suggestions.
Highly recommend for a casual dinner or special occasion!
Food was amazing! We started with the lobster queso with chips.
The steaks were melt-in-your-mouth good!!
We were the first table sat as they re-opened their dining room. They had several measures in place to protect both their staff and customers. The waiter spent some time talking with us about the challenges of getting back into the swing of things as well as the challenges we all face as we begin to come back together. The food and service were as always OUTSTANDING!!! Thank you!!!
Firebirds has excellent food and overall experience was great!
Amazing service and phenomenal food! Definitely will be a repeat customer!
Food was amazing. Exceptional service. Very relaxing atmosphere.
Great on the road Resturant. My husband and I drive through West Des Moines every March and look forward to a delicious steak dinner. The aged ribeye is a must and the service is usually good. I recommend getting a reservation.
Great environment and Great food and service
Wonderful service, food and atmosphere. This is the first time we have been there, but will be back for sure!
Was for my birthday. Waiter never asked but the guy who set us down did. Had to wait a while for our server to make rounds not very attentive and it was late and not very busy so I wasn’t sure why. Food was good but my husbands steak wasn’t cooked right and I got a super cold lobster for 55$ it wasn’t worth it at all!!!! With it taking my server so long to come back to our table it wasn’t worth another long wait to get it warm!
Make reservations!!!!!! Even then you’ll probably have wait! Noise level is awfully loud hard to carry on a conversation. Food and service excellent.
Love the place and their food!! We had some issues w requests my wife ordered a strawberry shrimp salad they were out of strawberries no big deal so she added tomatoes instead with her dressing on the SIDE Came soaked in dressing they fixed but took some time. Son ordered chicken pasta no green onions it showed with green onions all over it he attempted to pick off everyone of them. I ordered meat loaf with mashed potatoes side and No green beans with fried spinach instead meal comes w green beans fried spinach and no potatoes. So Every meal was brought to our table incorrectly. 3 out of 3 meals wrong waitress was nice but no real apology I was kind of disappointed with the lack of detail at a little but higher dollar place.
the food was amazing and the service was great our waitress the best I’ve ever seen
I went to Firebirds on Saturday night with a friend. We had another amazing dinner. Always great service and amazing food. Thank you Chef Cory
Overall this was a WAY better experience then our last time here. Our waiter was great, food was delicious...fresh and served very quickly...we will definitely be back!
Wonderful evening - food was excellent!!! Prime rib was outstanding!
The food was very good and we had great service! We will go back again.
The waiter was great after we were seated but it took
Food was very good. Our server was attentive and timely on checking on us through the meal. We will definitely be back.
Reservations for 2 at 6:00 PM on a Friday evening. Seated in center of large dining area. Noise level was to high to carry on normal conversation. Ordered steak done medium and was served very rare. Seriously raw in center. Left steak on plate uneaten and when young waitress returned after my wife had finished her meal she asked if I wanted a box for it. Just a thought, if a customer doesn't touch the entree there is likely something wrong.
Perfect service and Food!!! I
I brought a date here and it was a perfect setting for the mood I was looking for. The staff was incredibly friendly and the food and drinks were amazing. We’ll definitely be coming back for another date night
Had a business lunch with my client and his CEO. Just after ordering my client had to take an important phone call and was away for nearly the entire lunch. The manager took it upon himself to not only box up my client's lunch but also took it off the bill. I will definitely take my clients here again!
Ordered steak to be prepared medium well. It was first brought to the table rare, the manager took it back to cook longer, and it was brought back well done. Rest of the meal was good.
Everything was perfect! Our server Dillon was phenomenal, very knowledgeable and personable. We started off with the lobster spinach queso which was perfect, my husband ordered the impossible burger which he said was fantastic and I had the shrimp tacos per Dillon’s recommendation which were very very good! I also had the pineapple specialty drink, which Dillon provided a backstory for as he was making it at our table. We finished with the Cremé brûlée cheesecake which was excellent! Our first visit and we will absolutely be back!
Table was not ready when I arrived, High school kid checked me in. sat waiting for 10 minutes until I recieved a text. Host watched me sit there, I feel he could have walked over to let me know my table was ready. Server did not explain the menue very well but was pleasent.
Food was very god.
We had dinner for a birthday celebration. Our server, Kurt, was excellent! He was attentive without being over-bearing, had good suggestions and followed up throughout the dinner. He also presented a birthday card and dessert for our guest and was very kind and professional.
We love this restaurant. It’s our “go to” whenever we want to go out to celebrate with our family or take friends out to dinner. It’s our special place.
All very good
Because it was Valentines weekend it was busy. We had to wait an extra 30 minutes beyond our reservation time, but the bar had seating to get a drink while we waited. Food was fantastic, service was prompt, the ambience was perfect, it was a bit loud due to being backed!
Overall great & we will be back!
Consistent excellent food and service. Always crowded, which is a good sign, right? And no corking fee is a plus. Highly recommend.
We are long time Firebird's customers and have to say that this trip didn't live up to their usual level of quality. They were extremely busy so maybe that's the reason for the sub-par experience.
We had made reservations for a birthday celebration (yes it was mentioned in the reservation request) and had requested a specific server (yes he was working) and we didn't get their usual Birthday "treats" or the server we requested.
The appetizer and bread came out in a very timely manner but when our food came, the temperature was lukewarm at best. It was quite evident that our plates had been waiting for someone to bring them to the table. My plate then had to be completely sent back as I have extreme food allergies (usually have no issues and everything comes out exactly as requested) and the server hadn't even looked at my plate to verify if the order was done correctly. I had to point it out to him. While this wasn't enough to keep us from going back, I'm hoping it's not a trend of how service will be going forward. We've been spoiled by excellent customer service and perfect food in the past and this experience fell extremely short of their usual!
This was our first visit, but definitely not our last. Everything was top notch. The food, the service, thank you Kurt, our waiter, and the Double Black Diamond pineapple, vodka drink, plus the Creme Brulee Cheesecake, all of it was fabulous.
Definitely need to make reservations as it is ALWAYS busy. The noise level is very high throughout the restaurant. Almost too high to hold a conversation. Food is excellent but a bit overpriced compared to like restaurants like Bravo, Bonefish, Bubba, Centro. We don't go as often as we might due to price and noise.
Pasta served lukewarm, requested it to be heated, returned to me identically lukewarm. Disappointing. They were very nice about it.
