We were not very happy with our experience. We have been to firebirds before and it has been great... this time, not so much! People were rude and didn’t seem to care. Not sure we will be going back. Unfortunate because we do love the food.
Perfect - teenagers to grandparents. - all loved it. Our server Dan was superb. Everyone loves what they ordered
Had to send send steak back for being overcooked. A little aver priced. Food good tho.
Service was great, food was great. Would recommend this place to others.
Mediocre menu choices, service and food execution. Granted, it’s Covid, but I have been eating out quite a bit during covid so
Service was good- restaurant was comfortable. The food wasn’t amazing. Especially with the prices I paid, I wouldn’t spend that much to eat there again.
Asked for an outside table. Waited over 30 mins but another couple came in and was seated immediately. Finally got sited outside after 50mins. When got food after another hour waiting every thing cold. Took back and microwaved so came back dry and discussing still cold. This is the third time this has happened. Shame on me! Never again!
Everything was great except I wrote on my reservation that it was our anniversary and there was no acknowledgment of it at all. Does anyone read the on line reservations?
Tevin at WDM was AWESOME! So friendly even in the heat and having to wear a mask. We will for sure be back.
Second bread we got was hard our Party didn’t say anything didn’t want to ruin the night everything else was outstanding had a reservation they had a table ready when we showed up our server was great
This was our first visit and I guarantee we will be back. I do NOT leave good reviews if not deserved and I gave this 100%.
I’ve eaten many meals there. This was first not so great meal. Either not enough lettuce or too much dressing. Lettuce soup. Medium steak was well done.
We had a great time. The Service was excellent as was the food. The steaks were outstanding. Next trip to Des Moines we will be back.
Great experience and great food! Our favorite place!
We love this place! Our absolute favorite. The food is so delicious. The atmosphere is low keyed and you can have a conversation and actually hear each other. Been there many times, and never disappointed!
They did a great job accommodating my gluten free/dairy-free order. They were able to prepare the grilled salmon I order without the butter, and it was delicious! The grilled veggies were also really good.
I'd love to see more gluten/dairy-free options, but I really appreciate that they've made an effort.
Love this place!!🙂
Food has always been excellent and so has service. Drinks are definitely pricey
Kaitlyn was great
It was perfect as always!!
My family and I were looking for a nice steak house, and were grateful that Firebirds could get us in. The meal and environment were perfect. Thank you
Food was outstanding, but our server was one of the best I have ever had!
Great food and service
Very nice cocktail menu
Staff was friendly and the food was amazing. Social distancing and covid cleanliness was evident. Overall a great experience!
Food was okay. Onion rings were good, one specialty cocktail was great and one was not good. Steaks underdone, sent back and done slightly better. Overall food was bland. Service was good at first, then they got busier and the server seemed to forget about us. Overall okay experience, but probably won't return.
requested patio in my reservation but was not available when we got there. Other wise all was good.
Fathers Day special was supposed to be prime rib. Waiter had no idea but that’s why we reserved our table. Once checking found it was available as the special. My husband likes cocktail sauce with his prime rib. They had none. Menu change was not welcomed as my daughter and I have staples we like and couldn’t get. The food was fine but my husbands prime rib he said was not the best he’s had in comparison to other restaurants temp, large fatty chunk still on it and yes we know it’s supposed to be there but this was not just a thin piece it was a chunk. Waiter was attentive with refilling drinks etc. We love Firebirds but this was a let down for us unfortunately.
Passing thru town and wanted a sit down lunch
This was one of our first times to eat out again. We were in town to attend a memorial service and unsure of where to go. Firebirds was suggested and close by so we gave it a try. We are very glad that we did. The entire experience was wonderful. We will definitely come back again.
Excellent food, drinks and service. I didn’t get my 10 dollar birthday coupon this year. Still worth it. Sat on the patio, perfect
I brought my partner, son, daughter-in-law, 15 year old twin grandchildren last Sunday evening for an early Father's Day dinner. Nick, our waiter, was very attentive and kept our water glasses full and bread on the table. The food was delicious. I am particularly fond of the meatloaf, my granddaughter loves the ribs, and my son loved the spicy chicken pasta. The creme brulee cheesecake and chocolate cake were hits.
We were appropriately socially spaced and most waiters and waitresses wore masks.
Great server in the form of Trevor. Food was great from the jalapenos deviled eggs to the ribeye steak. Highly recommended adding the wood fire shrimp. Sangria was great and refreshing as well as the mule made from their house elixir.
Great meal at our favorite local restaurant. Food and waiter were perfect. Wife was not 100% on the margarita she ordered. Will be back and enjoy the great menu again soon.
Trevor, our server, was awesome. He was friendly and always appeared at the perfect time. He went out of his way to make sure our dining experience was excellent. My partner had the Kobe meatloaf with the parmesan mashed potatoes and pecan green beans. He thoroughly enjoyed his meal. I had the filet and the seasonal veggies. My filet was initially undercooked. Both Trevor and the manager were very quick to make it right. The manager even asked if I wanted a new steak cooked. The filet was very tender and the serving of vegetables was quite generous. We were glad we picked Firebirds as our dining selection and will be back soon.
Nice to be dining again. Great service and quality food.
In this socially-distanced world in which we live, my cooking limits were quickly reached. My husband and I needed a dinner out and we chose Firebirds in West Des Moines, IA. As always the food was great but as a bonus, their processes to ensure social-distancing and encourage mask-wearing were exceptional. We'll definitely go back.
My husband and I dined here for our anniversary. As always the food, drinks, service and atmosphere were all wonderful! Thank you for helping us celebrate our evening
This by far is one of our favorite restaurants in the Des Moines Metro area. Been there many times and they never disappoint!
The food was great, the service was great, the hostess was very friendly and helpful. I'm looking forward to happy hour prices returning in the afternoon.
Had the Ahi tuna spinach salad it was very delicious. Sat at the bar only one there. They have taken their happy hour specials away and almost half their menu during these times which is very disappointing. Hopefully soon they’ll bring it back because without it’s differently not the same place. Best of luck for all you servers and bartenders I know it’s been hard!
