My partner and I brought a couple we had been raving to about the restaurant. It was the first time of having a really bad experience. The waitress was not attentative and very forgetful. When we received the food, it was initially wrong for half of us. All of us had room temperature food, which was fine for the salads, not so much for the chicken sandwiches nor the clam chowder soup. We will try again since this was the first time of a bad experience, but this was very disappointing.

Food was ok, but not great like usual. Firebirds used to be our go-to dinner spot because we knew the food and service would be great. Over the last 3-4 visits, it has been going downhill on every visit. Service was slow. Food was average. I hope next time will be better, but we have taken it out of the rotation for a little bit.

I ordered the 14 oz prime rib and 1/4 of it was fat. Paying for a larger piece of meat and then really only getting a portion of edible meat was disappointing. The southwest potatoes were great!

Went to celebrate my birthday. Waiter was wonderful as far as offering suggestions. The lobster queso was good but would have been better hot. The prime rib didn’t have much flavor. The recommendations for the steak were great

Sammy did a great job taking care of my group. She was attentive but not overbearing. The menu has great selections while not overpriced. Atmosphere was really nice with a full dining room and great lighting! Great job, Firebirds!

Was great food but service was very rough tonight. Had reservations at 530 we were early there at 5 was informed it be closer to 530 the bar we could wait at okay. But the dining room was empty? Watched slowly ppl start coming in being seated. Finally at 545 i asked if our table our table was ready? Oh yes. Ok. Get seated and no one acknowledged us after 15 mins our server never came over so another server helped us great. He got our drinks and appetizers ordered. No body came back for another 15 mins we get water and my bar drink. Get our apps our food [that was finally put in by waiter who acknowledged us]
Then our server finally came over introduced herlself after the other waiter had taken care of us and we had gotten appetizers and entree and then avoided us again. For 45 mins. Finally comes back asks us about dessert. Quickly brings it and the check. I love coming here but don't think it will be for awhile again after tonight.

When we first arrived, the hostess asked if we had a reservation? We did not, she then said we could sit in the bar area;since we didn't have a reservation, we decided to leave due to us having an infant and a toddler. I decided to see if I could place a reservation on OpenTable and see how long it would be, turns out it was only 15min. It would of been nice if the hostess could of explained that to us. We never saw that particular hostess again the whole night. We eventually were seated, our waitress was not very engaged and food was only mediocre. It also looked like the place wasn't very busy, so why was stuff taking so long. Won't be back for awhile.

Our dinner was excellent! From the bleu cheese filet to the salmon with lobster fondue, everything was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed our dirty martini and wine. Our server, Nathan, showed a sense of humor, and we had fun interacting with him. Highly recommend!

Initially food came out way underdone for one of us, can happen with a thick cut like a filet, but was handled very professionally by waitress and managerial staff. Made up for the initial mess up and still was a good night.

We chose Firebirds to celebrate a birthday. Great food. Prompt and friendly service. The hostess was a bit gruff when the rest of our party arrived (I don’t know where they are seated but you can look yourself). She could use some customer service training but overall fantastic evening.

We waited for quite a while for our food, just to find it totally cold (steak, prime rib). We were asked if we wanted the next round of food packed up and we stated we didn’t, and wanted to eat in the restaurant. Getting our replacement meals took about another 30 or more minutes. We were comped desserts to take home for our troubles. Firebirds used to be one of my favorites, but I’m not sure that I’ll go back.

Our waitress was spectacular, kind, observant, constantly checked in. Steak was under cooked "better than over". Mushrooms were dirty tasting, shrimp were small, loaded baked potato was under loaded and over salted.
Not worth the money spent.

Went for my birthday lunch with my husband and another couple. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I got a nice dessert sampler plate for my birthday which I could easily share with everyone. Our waiter was attentive and personable. Enjoyed the experience.
