We arrive for our reservation at 745p and was told the kitchen was backed up and we would have to wait to be seated. Once we were seated, everything started our fine ordered drinks and then an appetizer. We placed our dinner order around 8ish and waited over 30 minutes for our meal, which when we rec'd it everything was over cooked and slightly warm. The sea bass was charred and very dry. The shrimp on the sea bass and the pasta order were small and tasteless. My son order the burger, and didn't finish it, which says a lot right there.
I have answered the questioned below as no for recommended but the next question Why would II recommend this place for? Answer Nothing

Service was incredible. Most always have had good service but this visit was especially good. Even the gentleman who delivered the salad asked if he could get anything else for our table. Everyone helping was top-notch. Thank you!

I always get the blue cheese filet and love it. However this night it was terrible. It was a clump of blue cheese on my steak with no sauce what so ever. The cheese was translucent. It was disgusting. Your only saving grace was that our waiter was awesome. Great attitude and prompt with getting bread and salad to us. I’m disappointed in my meal but I will probably give it another chance in time.
Thank you.

The food was absolutely amazing, we had one small issue that they corrected immediately and apologized for multiple times. Our waitress was fantastic as well, definitely will be going back.

Host and wait staff were excellent but that's one of the few positive things I can say about Firebird's.

Lobster queso was decent, but not great.

The baked potato was coated in salt. The pepper encrusted sirloin was very salty as well. Could have been remnants from all the salt on the baked potato.

I ordered a house salad but got the BLT salad instead. To be honest I didn't notice until the waiter brought it to my attention half way through eating it, so I share in some of the blame there.

My wife ordered her steak medium and received one that was well done. She did say her lobster tail was good.

Not sure what it was but my wife and I both experienced sickness after our meal.

I usually don't leave reviews good or bad, but after spending $200 on a meal after gratuity I feel like the food could have been much better.

I’m not the complaining type but there were no straws used for regular drinks so I had to drink from the glass. Not to big of a deal but both Appetizers & my entree was cold. I usually have no problems with firebirds but this time was horrible.

There was a larger group on the patio two tables down from us. Two of the groups members were practically yelling and drunk. One of the patrons was chain smoking. We asked our server if smoking was allowed and she said absolutely not and she would get the manager. No one addressed the smoking. We needed up asking to be moved inside because of how loud and smelling it was on the patio. The food was ok.

My husbands salmon was extremely dry and my chicken was so tough and dry on my salad.
We have always loved Firebirds but the last 3 times we have been there our food has been less than desirable, so disappointing.
Our service was great as always.

The four of us had four different entrées. Each one was excellent. One of us had a birthday and they made that person feel special without letting everyone else in the restaurant know what was going on. That person received his dessert free (all the desserts were quite special) and three lovely aromatic roses in a vase. Server was helpful without being obsequious.

Definitely had the worst experience I would say from a upscale steakhouse. We had reservations and when we arrived there was only 2 other tables filled in the entire restaurant. So should've been a great experience you would think with it not being so crowded and busy. Ordered appetizers and those were fine. Next the food came and completely cold and steak not medium-well. Steak was more like rare. Had to send it back. Broccoli was cold. Let me say it took over an hour for food to come. Not only that after almost an hour past, the server stated that they couldn't do a full rack of ribs and only had half a rack! Well they should've stated this when we had ordered the FULL Rack of Ribs! Server apologized and manager on duty apologized. They had offered to re-do the food but we had already been there going on two hours. Awful experience and definitely wouldn't go back. Was a birthday dinner for myself and can say it was ruined. I could go on more but no need to bring back these horrible memories.

The food was terrific, the service was phenomenal and the evening was perfect! The menu had just the right amount of things to choose from but being the meat eating family we are, we all ordered different steaks and potatoes, and we were not disappointed. The steaks were seared and cooked perfectly. I got the filet with blue cheese and mushroom topping and OMG!!!..it was so delicious. My husband had the bacon wrapped filet and shrimp and it was also perfect. We shared the Parmesan mashed potatoes and southwestern augratin potatoes and wow!..so good. The portions of the potatoes were so big that we all had some to go and were able to eat them the next night with our dinner at home. They were still just as good. We also started our meal with the ahi tuna and YUM! The wasabi mustard sauce was the perfect pairing. Our service was terrific! She was very attentive, but not in an annoying way. She was funny and had great recommendations. We finished the night with complimentary creme brûlée cheesecake and wow!! So good! Overall, it was a fantastic night with fantastic food! We will for sure be back! In fact, my son said that he now knows where he wants his birthday dinner next month. See you then!

Our food took Well over an hour and when we got it the meat was cold and potatoes even colder. The taste was descent. Desert was good. Service was pretty good. The drinks from the bar were bad. The bar tender obviously did not know how to mix drinks...tried four different drinks and they were all bad.

We eat here semi-frequently and have our more favorite dishes and a few that are not as good. I typically like to try at least one thing different.
Overall, the salmon is one of our favorites. This time I had them add the Cajun butter. While the butter had good flavor, it over powered the dish. My wife’s salmon was slightly undercooked with the center being cool. Ordinarily not a huge issue but, in the Midwest, most people expect a fish dish to be well done. In the past that’s how the salmon came out, well done.
I paired the salmon with a cup of their clam chowder. Unfortunately, probably the poorest version of clam chowder I’ve had in some time. Plenty of clams, but the chowder itself was lumpy, had a smokey flavor and was heavy enough on the pepper it was to spicy. It’s one of those dishes we won’t order again.
My wife had the BLT salad and it was very good.
In the past we’ve had the Kobe meatloaf (not recommended), baby back ribs (tender and tasty), and the seafood pasta (also very good).
We really enjoy this restaurant and will continue to visit. Overall the food, service and atmosphere is enjoyable.
