    Host attitude was rude, server wasn’t good either, did no refill water, didn’t ask if wanted another drink, didn’t check on food, hamburger undercooked, asked to be well done, brought checked before asking if we wanted dessert, which we wanted, it was husbands birthday, but bad tasted after that, and then threw check at my husband… won’t be back there!

    Steak with no blood was my request. Took over 40 min to receive my steak. It was only 1/3 cooked at the most. Lots of blood flowing on the plate after cutting into it. Outside looked fine. I requested it be taken back and just paid for appetizer and drink. There was no way no I was going to wait for another steak. It was an hour by then after arriving at restaurant for my 7:00 reservation. Waitress was nice. Appetizer was good. Will not be returning.

    Great food, great service. But... it is so loud in there that it is difficult to converse. It is even difficult to talk to the server to order, etc. Please consider nominal sound control.

    Firebirds is always amazing food and service. Our waiter was top notch. He was knowledgeable on everything on the menu whether it’s drinks or food. I have yet to eat bad food at a firebirds and I’ve been to multiple ones across the country. We had prime rib and a sirloin and both were cooked to perfection

    Service: fabulous. Food: outstanding. Value for the money: great. The host who seated us was a bit of a turn off, but the server and the food (the bread is amazing - I could make a meal of it by itself) more than made up for it. We both had steaks and not only were they delicious, they were cooked exactly as we ordered. Vegetables were cooked to perfection; still crisp, not soggy. Even the French fries were amazing.

    The service at the beginning was a little slow, the bread service was forgotten until asked for. The food followed the salad plates by less than 5 minutes. Steaks were ordered medium and were definitely on the medium rare to rare side. I've been here before and really enjoyed it so I hope this was just an "off" night.

    The two servers were outstanding!!! 5 stars The maitre d (older gentleman) was a total jerk to me and the party prior to us. Completely rude when a lady (party of 4) was trying to determine if the restaurant could accommodate them. Then when I gave my name and said “I have a reservation but we are about ten minutes early”. He quite rudely said “Just stand over there until we are ready for you!” Restaurant and food was excellent. He would cause me to debate if I would ever return.

    WE arrived at 7:15 to discover they were sold out of prime rib. We ordered a Meomi Pinot Noir and it was terrible. Bottle went bad or it was just a bad year. Did not taste like a pinot noir. Waitress did not know how to serve the wine.

    Went for a romantic anniversary dinner, and would highly recommend! The service was excellent and thoughtful. The food was delicious. The martinis were amazing. My only complaint would be the music. It was sort of all over the place and didn’t really fit with the ambience. However that was minor. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the staff all treated us very politely. We will be back!
