Firebirds Wood Fired Grill - West Des Moines
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.
VERY enjoyable 49th Anniversary! They even put flowers on our table.
VERY very good service from Alma.
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!
Waiter was not very attentative
Awesome drinks and fantastic service
Our dining experience couldn’t have been better! Our server, Dylan was attentive, professional, pleasant and offered helpful suggestions. The food was prepared perfectly and it was delicious. The extras were very much appreciated. We are anxious to return!
Excellent service. Very nice wine list. The steaks were moderately priced and cooked to perfection.
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.
Very nice evening
Our server Trevor was awesome and the food was spot on to everything was great
My grandson suggested we go there. We will come back when in DesMoines.
Fabulous rib steak. Love the fact that we can bring our own wine.
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.
Great evening in the patio!!
Love this place!! Very good food and service. I celebrated my birthday here and it was absolutely fantastic!!
Excellent food and excellent service, very pleasant setting
We always enjoy coming here when in West Des Moines!
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 party of 10, and the service was great. The food was excellent too!!
Our server Samual was FANTASTIC! Was very friendly and knowledgeable.
It was a wonderful night! Ashley D. did a great job taking care of us. The appetizers, the meals and desserts were perfect!
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.
Great food! Our favorite restaurant in West Des Moines!
We had an Alzheimer’s person with us and our server was very patient with her. The food was superb. It was my birthday and they brought me a dessert. I didn’t expect that! Everything was perfect!
Great food. Great atmosphere overall enjoyed the experience.
First time to Firebirds and would definitely come back.
Have yet to have a meal that was even close to mediocre - always great food and dining experience.
Truly one of our favorite restaurants.
Meat was tough. Nothing exceptional about the menu.
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.
We enjoyed our lunch. One of us had the tuna salad and the other had the Salmon BLT, seasonal offering. Both were excellent!
They had flowers and a congratulations card signed by everyone celebrating our anniversary. Manager stopped by to say congrats.
Great meal with excellent service. Food was amazing!

Adrian goes above and beyond to ensure everything is wonderful! We continue to go back again and again!
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.
