The steaks weren’t a good cut. Thin and grisly. We ordered a lobster tail add-on. It came only partially cooked. They took it away and brought it back. Same pieces. Now the cooked bits were over done and the raw part was still only partially cooked. We found it embarrassing for them. Can’t be in the fine dining business and not know how to prepare fine food.
Waiter was darling-young-and did his best to smooth it over.
Not great. Our first time here since Covid and it wasn’t nearly as good as it was previously. The stakes were order medium but were well+. The Colorado salad was lacking flavor (blue cheese, dressing, etc) The firebird pasta was great but didn’t make up with the other deficiencies. The manager apologized that the salads and food arrived at the same time and said the bill would be adjusted but that didn’t occur. Will be awhile before we consider going back.
Always great services and food. Best value in town ..
Mother daughter dinner. Server was helpful and attentive. Food was very good.
Great service great food definitely would come back
Great experience as always. Food was great, they’re always accommodating of seating and TVs and staff is excellent. We keep coming back for a reason!
Sabrina had great table etiquette. Enjoyable personality. Food was spot on as always. Always a treat . Thank you
Food as always is good and consistent. Salmon was outstanding, as always, as was everything. Service was also good. The only thing keeping this from being a 5* was dealing with the flies inside.
Lovely dinner on the patio! My husband’s favorite, the Delmonico, was prepared perfectly with a nice side of fresh green beans, he was very happy! I made the shareable Ahi tuna my entrée and it was perfect and pretty healthy! We had a lovely evening with friendly staff and nice ambiance with outdoor dining.
We wanted to sit outside and could not so that was disappointing but everything else was good.
Steaks cooked perfectly. Wife loved dessert. Staff friendly and helpful. I requested patio seating when I made reservation and they were kind enough to call me shortly after to explain that patio seating was first come, first serve but our inside reservation would remain and we could check on patio opening once we arrived. Wasn't able to get patio seat, but ended up being totally fine. Seating was well spaced (we were there right around 6pm). Server was attentive, other servers helped deliver food and bus table. Speed of service was incredible! I had expected to wait at least 30 min longer than we did for entrees. Overall, great atmosphere, great food, great service. We'll be back!!
The food is always amazing and I have tried many items on the menu. Most of the time the service is outstanding and this time our server wasn't as friendly, but we didn't let it ruin our night. We are thrilled that they brought back the famous Key Lime Pie! Always a special treat.
Great food and great service. Carrot cake dessert is a must!
Great food! Best Arnold Palmer hands down. And amazing staff!!
Really disappointed in the loaded potato
Old dried out and cold
I really like this restaurant and hate to have this happen
Great time and food!
Such good food and good service! Very pretty area too!
Food doesn t taste fresh cooked. Entree taste like they just came out of microwave
Our 50th wedding anniversary.... great food... great service... first learned about your restaurant in Gilbert Arizona. We are fans and will be back.
After our drink order, we did not see our server again. I had to ask the hostess why it's been 30 minutes since we saw our server. She apologized and less than 5 minutes later a man who I can only call management came to us and apologized. said he couldn't find our server in the building, speculated she had left for the night for an unknown reason and he would take care of us the rest of our meal. He took our order and it was at our table in record time. Thank you! There are many other feelings I could share but The food was good and we will be going back one more time. To give a better review. Hopefully more than one.
We took advantage of the filet meal special. Food was very good. We will be back.
We were at the restaurant for the first time. We were underwhelmed by the less than attentive service and the food. We discussed our concern with the manager about the serving temperature of meat dishes. We will return in the future in hopes of a better experience.
We were not very happy with our experience. We have been to firebirds before and it has been great... this time, not so much! People were rude and didn’t seem to care. Not sure we will be going back. Unfortunate because we do love the food.
Perfect - teenagers to grandparents. - all loved it. Our server Dan was superb. Everyone loves what they ordered
Had to send send steak back for being overcooked. A little aver priced. Food good tho.
Service was great, food was great. Would recommend this place to others.
Mediocre menu choices, service and food execution. Granted, it’s Covid, but I have been eating out quite a bit during covid so
Service was good- restaurant was comfortable. The food wasn’t amazing. Especially with the prices I paid, I wouldn’t spend that much to eat there again.
Asked for an outside table. Waited over 30 mins but another couple came in and was seated immediately. Finally got sited outside after 50mins. When got food after another hour waiting every thing cold. Took back and microwaved so came back dry and discussing still cold. This is the third time this has happened. Shame on me! Never again!
Everything was great except I wrote on my reservation that it was our anniversary and there was no acknowledgment of it at all. Does anyone read the on line reservations?
Tevin at WDM was AWESOME! So friendly even in the heat and having to wear a mask. We will for sure be back.
Second bread we got was hard our Party didn’t say anything didn’t want to ruin the night everything else was outstanding had a reservation they had a table ready when we showed up our server was great
This was our first visit and I guarantee we will be back. I do NOT leave good reviews if not deserved and I gave this 100%.
I’ve eaten many meals there. This was first not so great meal. Either not enough lettuce or too much dressing. Lettuce soup. Medium steak was well done.
We had a great time. The Service was excellent as was the food. The steaks were outstanding. Next trip to Des Moines we will be back.
Great experience and great food! Our favorite place!
We love this place! Our absolute favorite. The food is so delicious. The atmosphere is low keyed and you can have a conversation and actually hear each other. Been there many times, and never disappointed!
They did a great job accommodating my gluten free/dairy-free order. They were able to prepare the grilled salmon I order without the butter, and it was delicious! The grilled veggies were also really good.
I'd love to see more gluten/dairy-free options, but I really appreciate that they've made an effort.
Love this place!!🙂
