We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at Firebirds, and were overall pleased with the experience. We had a great wine, and both ordered steaks. They were cooked perfectly, but I did have more gristle with my ribeye than I care to have. Dessert was also excellent.

The girl that waited on very nice & friendly however several of our orders came to us incorrectly. WE ordered the Prime Rib special around the table. I ordered the 16oz Prime Rib and requested to split it with my son. Two of the orders got split that should have not been. I asked for mine to be medium rare and it was well done. We ordered chocolate cake and was told they were out of it. Ordered another desert and the waitress brought us the chocolate cake that was "supposedly" out!

I came to Firebird with a date and had never been here before and my date has only been here once. The service was great and the waitress was super friendly. The food was awesome, probably one of the best ribeye's I had for only $30 too, my date had a chicken sandwich and seemed to enjoy it although we did not know it was a sandwich when ordering it. The confluence beer was amazing and I hate IPAs. I especially liked despite it been relatively busy the waitress not staff pushed me and my date out of the restaurant despite being there for 2.5 hours. Would 100% come back !

Made reservation on a Thursday for the following Saturday. We arrived on time and was seated promptly. Food and service was great. The restaurant was packed so the noise level was high but it was good to hear and see people enjoying themselves once again. Had a fantastic evening.

I went there due to your ad for the Striped Bass. It was absolutely delicious, firm, perfectly prepared w shrimp & great sauce. One of the very best fish dinners I've ever had. Price was just right. The ancient grains were very good but advertised as having charred corn and tomatoes. I found the corn but the tomatoes were missing and I love tomatoes.

My wife had the NY Strip which was cooked to perfection and also delicious.

The Ooey Goey Butter Cake was scrumptious. We split it. The photo showed it topped with lots of berries and ours had maybe 5 but nowhere near what the photo showed.

The draft I ordered wasn't available, a red ale, but the substitute was very good. We both had a white sangria which was soo good.

The service was very good. We had reservations for 7:45 and arrived 10 minutes early and were seated immediately. Only one constructive minor criticism; our waiter, Ken, must have use the word "fantastic" at least 20+ times. Everything was "Fantastic". A good example of less is better. Ken did give us very good service.

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill remains one of our favorite restaurants.

The service was great once they figured out who was in fact going to be our server, the value is great. My disappointment was the taste of the food that I am chalking it up to an off day, undercooked prime rib, also very tough don't think I will order again, huge fantastic lobster tail just undercooked slightly but edible. Im thinking just an off day for potentially amazing resteraunt we will try again.

The food was terrible. The “fall off the bone” ribs promised by the kitchen were tough and barely had any meat on them. The prime rib was never flipped with one side being near raw and the other being burnt.

The only saving grace was the server was amazing and the manager didn’t make us pay for anything. But first impressions are everything. You’d expect a place that has price ranges from $30-$50 a plate to be mind blowing. I’ve had better food from a fast food joint.

My guest ordered their sandwich without onion but received it with them still on it. It also would be nice to be able to see a television in the dining area. Not necessarily to watch but in view for seeing scores on a Friday or Saturday night.

Took my daughter out for her 22nd birthday dinner here and was not disappointed. From the time you enter the door, the setting, the service and the food all surpassed my expectations.
I will definitely be back and look forward to another great experience at Firebirds.
