    The proteins were good. I got salmon and although I requested medium rare it was medium well in my opinion. Still tasted good. The guys got filet mignon and prime rib and they all said it was cooked well and very tender. The cider slaw was very good. The veges left much to be desired. Something more than steamed would have been so much better, grilled or roasted

    This was my first time at Firebirds. The ambiance was good. The salmon salad was good enough. Strange that the place setting included a fork and a steak knife. The salmon came with a chilled fork (the salmon was warm) and no regular knife. Service was efficient but never smiled.

    Our waitress was fantastic. Patient and very friendly. I ordered the grilled shrimp and strawberry salad. The shrimp was good, flavors were good, but the lettuce was terrible. It seemed wilted and I had a lot of very white pieces…it almost looked like coleslaw. The salad didn’t seem worth nearly $20. That was my only complaint though.

    We had an 8pm reservation. When we arrived there was no one at the host desk. A few waiters were hanging around the bar, but no one came to greet us. After about 10 minutes, the host came and sat us. She was very short and cold. After we were sat, it took our server about 15 minutes to come and greet us. I ended up Grabbing a drink menu from the front because we wanted to know what our options were. When our server finally arrived ce gave him our drink and appetizer order. As the food and drinks came out we realized we were missing an appetizer that he claimed we didn’t order. Once we got our meals, we were very underwhelmed. Although the food was cooked correctly, it was very bland and lacked seasoning. Not planning to go back.

    Usually the food is great but we were disappointed in yesterday’s trip. My son in law got the ribeye and he said it didn’t seem flavored at all. He had to use a lot of salt and pepper and still said it was just okay, and not a good quality rib eye he’s used to, especially for the cost. I got the $24.95 limited time special of a 5oz filet and shrimp with bruschetta tomatoes and it was a joke. The filet was also very bland, it came with about 4-5 smaller shrimp and about three tomatoes. I realize that’s a small cut of beef but it took up about 1/5 of a plate. Really?? It adds insult to injury when you can’t even use a smaller plate or offer more with the meal. I had to pay an extra $1.00 to get a side salad that was mediocre at best. Sadly this used to be a favorite place of ours, especially loved the convenience of being by Kaiser Permanente. I’m glad we got the deviled eggs appetizer but even the eggs were small.

    We all enjoyed our food very much and our server did a nice job - he was very friendly too!! But the music is just too too loud. It would have been a much more enjoyable experience if the music volume was lower and if the music blended into the background more. No driving beats needed to dine!!! And our salads were a bit pricey to be honest.

    High chairs in patio dining area was not ideal. Table was a bit cramped for four people. Noise level from periodic speedsters was distracting. Food was good, albeit a touch pricey. Service was excellent.

    I wish I could have selected 4.5 for the food instead of whole numbers. We got the three entre meal - ribs, steak, and salmon. All were very good to excellent, but the steak could have used a bit more seasoning. All in all, highly recommended!

    We ate inside and the carpets definitely needed to be cleaned as you can smell the grease in the carpet May I suggest Crown carpet care - they take care of many restaurants like black bar and kitchen in Bethesda made ones in Frederick etc Our waiter was amazing and sweet - this was special for my client selling his home of 22 years !

    My second time dining here. Everything was ok, but the wait staff seems to be instructed to constantly clean the table and rush the dining experience. Literally asking to take food away while we're eating but not actually chewing while we were engaged in conversation. Very annoying. This happened with different wait staff on two different occasions. So these guys are probably trained this way. The place was not crowded. Chill and let your diners dine.

    They were accommodating when they noticed that the steak was not done well. They served the food and said they would send out another steak right away without us saying anything. Very good service.
