We have consistently experienced great service and delicious food at Firebirds and continue to go back and also recommend it to friends. I would have given 5 stars on the food but the lobster queso we ordered as an appetizer tasted pretty fishy. Otherwise all was great!

The service was top notch, and the atmosphere was great. It was good but not something to rave about on Monday. I think I may have had a higher bar set due to the price, and I've been eyeing this place for a while. Steak was cooked perfect and it was a good cut, just the flavor fell short. (Bacon wrapped filet with broccoli) I will go back, just with a bit of a lower bar.

Food was perfectly prepared to both my wifes and my taste which are quite different. She also enjoyed her wine with her meal. We will return for sure.

Our server was fabulous. People at desk when we arrived not good at all. Told us our table was ready but to sit at the bar for a minute. We went back after 15 minutes. She said she was waiting in menus. Another 10 minutes and we went up and said we really wanted to be seated. Finally took us. No menus for another 10 minutes which was when we asked the server for them. Food was great and our server was great.

We went for the filet that was great, but loved the salad and garlic mashed potatoes about as much!

We had a large party to celebrate my husband's birthday and we had 2 servers who were very attentive and made up for not having a New York Strip for my husband by bringing a cheesecake for dessert.

We were impressed by both the service and the food at Firebirds. We didn’t realize that it was a chain but hope it comes to our area soon. We were expecting a basic steakhouse and were pleasantly surprised by the variety of options on the menu. However the best thing was the food was outstanding. Very generous serving. Would definitely return.

Excellent, diverse meals, great sides. Great combination of flavors. You might have to wait a little longer as wait staff seems to have too many tables.

This was our first visit to Firebirds. We chose it for the food reviews but also expected it to be a quieter environment (on a Thursday evening) to catch up with family members we hadn't seen for years. We were surprised at the level of noise, which made communication difficult. Our server was efficient, although maybe a little bit too efficient. We felt a little rushed through our meal and rushed to pay. Once the bill was paid, we received no further attention from our server. The food, however, was outstanding. I had one of the best steaks I've ever eaten, and others at the table also raved about the steaks. One person gave the salmon salad high marks. I would definitely return for the food.

We had a nice dinner at Firebirds. The staff was friendly and helpful. All of our meals were well prepared and delicious. By far, the BLT salad is the hidden gem of the menu. We will be back again in the future.

Have been to Firebirds on several occasions and each visit had good service and delicious food, however, in the most recent visit there was a strong sewer smell that was a little hard to ignore.

A girlfriend and I went to Firebirds on a Friday evening for dinner. The drinks we had while waiting at the bar were good. When we got to our table, our server was pleasant and we ordered our dinner. She ordered the salmon and I ordered the Lemon Basil scallops. Unfortunately, both of our seafood dishes were extremely dry. Scallops only take a few minutes to cook on each side and they were small in size and extremely dry. She mentioned her salmon was dry also. Our server did not return to refill water glasses, but did check back quickly at some point after our meal arrived. Needless to say, this was a disappointing visit and the food quality was poor for the price of $27 for scallops and about the same for salmon.
