    Although I noted in my reservations online that we were dinning at Firebirds to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday, I was surprisingly disappointed that the restaurant personnel/our waitress did not acknowledge him or offer a complimentary dessert at the least! Food/drinks were great, ambiance fantastic, however staff could be a little more hospitable and engage more with guest.

    The food wasn’t very good. The burger we’re supposed to be well done, but they were still very pink. The BBQ that I had was dry and the bacon was burnt.

    Went for my fiancés 30th birthday. We sat in the bar which had a very upbeat energy which was nice. Happy hour menu was a hit. Loved the value and variety. However it being a steakhouse I was disappointed with the lack of variety in whiskeys. Even the cocktails were very much on the “safe” side with only vodka & tequila mixes. The drinks we did end up ordering were great however. Our server was on point and diligent. She was very busy but made a point to touch our table when she could. We ordered the filet, the ribeye, and a burger. We all had issues with the temps we requested, over/under cooked. Manager was able to swap out my ribeye which was nice but I just expect the standard to be a little higher for how much we were paying. We like to come and celebrate here and will likely be back, maybe next time with hopes of getting our steaks right on the first try!

    Was here on Easter and came back for Mothers Day. Had a better meal and service time on Easter. Sat down at 5:15 and didn’t get served our dinner until 6:30. The Manager did credit the overcooked filet and we had a nice family outing.

    They need to do something about their bar service. We waited over 20 minutes for a cocktail. This is the way it always is, whether a holiday or not. Food is usually always exceptional. This was the first time I had send mine back fo being overcooked. I feel the kitchen was overwhelmed.

    Likely due to a lack of servers, the entire experience left a bit to be desired. Our salads, apps and dinner all came out together, drinks took far too long and my wife’s steak was woefully over cooked. The staff made the experience as enjoyable as could be, and I commend them for their effort. Our waitress in particular was wonderful, but overwhelmed. We will likely return, but not for any special event. Maybe just on a Tuesday afternoon when it’s not as busy.

    Our server seemed to have other things on his mind instead of serving. We sat for 20 minutes waiting for our check and another 25 minutes waiting for our change. The order was completely wrong, vegetables were barely cooked and he didn’t offer to fix the fact that they brought the wrong order for my husband. Firebirds’s is usually our go-to restaurant, but I think we’ll skip it for a while.

    Have really enjoyed this restaurant in the past. This time, however, I had made the reservation over a month in advance for 6 adults. When we arrived, they tried seating us at a booth! Really? 6 adults — 3 couples—at a booth. Unacceptable. After a discussion, we were seated at a table in a room and were told that in order to sit there, we would need to be done by the time an 8:30 reservation for that room came in! Customer service and courtesy seems to be in short order when this happens. We did not make a reservation at a pricey steakhouse a month in advance to be uncomfortably squeezed into a booth and unable to have decent dinner conversations and then only accommodated properly with a set time frame to leave. Expected to give all 5 stars but this was ridiculous.

    This was our first time dining at Firebirds. The food was great - a prime rib with mashed potatoes, followed by the Big Daddy Chocolate Cake. However, when we ordered the dessert, the server came by and placed our check on the table without a word, and then we didn’t see him again for 30 minutes. During that time, it took 20 minutes for our dessert to show up (longer for a slice of cake with ice cream than it took for a prime rib and mashed potatoes), and we needed drink refills - but by the time our server came back, we had finished our dessert and we were ready to just pay and leave. It really soured what had the potential to be a great experience.

    Server was a train wreck. I ordered an alcoholic beverage and a water. Never got my water. My husband and I ordered an appetizer and our entrées. The entrées eventually show up and when I mentioned we never got the appetizer I get oh, I'm not even going to lie I probably forgot. While eating our food never checked to see how it was or if we were ok. Popped back up with the check and asked if we're finished. Put the check down and cleared the table.. my husband wanted dessert but by that time it wasn't even worth asking. We paid and left. Server was nice but not very good at her job
