    My steak had brown spots inside it. Was undercooked. I did not get the potato in ordered. The salmon was overcooked and burned. Took an hour to get our food. We will not go back

    Your cooks/chefs need to learn how to prepare vegetables. Two of us were served almost raw vegetables. I'd recommend bringing in food experts to provide your people training in this area. Asparagus & broccoli are difficult to prepare so training would be helpful.

    Firebirds has a great atmosphere and unique food choices for an American Restaurant. However my chicken was over done, very dry. Everything else, especially the service was great!

    2 out of 3 meals. were fine. My wifes meal was not what she ordered from the menu. Two of the items listed on the menu were missing. the 3rd was supposed to be roasted potatoes but instead were substituted with French fries. When the server was made aware of this discrepancy they really didn't know how to handle the situation satisfactorily.

    Receptionist very friendly and pleasant. Our waiter was exceptional and attentive checking various times to see if we needed anything else. The meals were excellent with the exception of my steak which I ordered medium but it was almost well done, after requesting a new steak it was prepared just right and it was delicious. Manager went above and beyond and compensated and didn’t charge me for my steak, I was expecting to still pay for my steak but it was a happy surprise. I will definitely be back next time in town and will highly recommend.

    Requested standard booth seating when I made the reservation. Was seated in the front in a high too in the bar. When I asked why we couldn’t be seated in one of the multiple empty booths, we were told they were saved for larger parties. Upon observation later in the evening, 3 of the 5 booths only had 2 people in them. The bar area was cold due to being by the front door that was opened and closed continuously, requiring my significant other to wear a coat. Very disappointing evening.

    This place just struggles with service overall. There’s a reason it’s crowded, because every other place is booked, so they don’t really care if it takes 25 mins to get a drink or an hr+ for food.

    Brought my family (who had never been to Firebirds). Explained to them how good the food is and the service. Long story short, we had bad service. Our server was gone for long periods of time. When our food came out it was cold. I had to waive down someone else just to get water. Waited 16 min for my dessert. We timed it cause everything else was taking so long. I wish I never brought my family there. Bad experience.

    I ordered my steak medium rare, it came rare but that was fine. My friends steak was as they ordered it. The sauce they use for the Oscar steak add-on is not a bearnaise, a little more spicy but okay, I was expecting a true Bearnaise sauce, asparagus on the Oscar was perfectly cooked. Martinis are great

    Food wasn’t cooked to temp and the other one was way over cooked, also brought out wrong steak to begin with. Server never asked how food was and never said sorry. Server also asked what drink I wanted and they didn’t have but still charged for that amount instead of adjusting to amount of actual drink I had. What a celebration experience that was
