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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
