I have eat here a few times for lunch and it seemed ok. So i was super hungry and craving something beefy last night so i tried them out for dinner with my wife. She ordered the filet cooked medium. I ordered the aged rib-eye cooked medium rare. The filet came back rare and the rib-eye came back medium well.... More

I've eaten here before and while this wasn't my best visit, it was still good. Food options were very good especially for children. Steaks were a little undercooked but not too bad. Service was good even despite a few minor mistakes. The Holiday rush was on so given that, they did an excellent job.

We had a wonderful server and the food was so delicious. The atmosphere was very welcoming even on a busy night. I wish we had one of these in Roanoke!

We decided to try somewhere different and I chose Firebirds. I ordered the crab cakes on the appetizer menu and a side salad and side of mashed potatoes. My husband ordered Ahai tuna with loaded baked potato. The salad were one of the best I have ever had with lots of flavorful tidbits. The crab cakes (2) were small but... More

The first item I got was the mixed greens salad. Thie mix of the sugar-roasted Pecans, the Mexican Jicamba and the Balsamic Vinagrette made this one of the tastiest salads... More

I have been to this place twice; both times I was very disappointed. The first time the incredible aroma got me to try it but the so call Black Angus steak was tough and flavorless. I have eaten much cheaper steaks at home, purchased form a local supermarket, with much more flavor and tenderness. I like my steak as is,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent experience at our Richmond Short Pump location. We use USDA Choice beef, the second highest grade on the beef quality scale. While a juicy, tender and flavorful meat product, it is slightly coarser in texture than the first highest grade of Prime. We are regret that the product was... More

Just had a meal here the other evening for the 2nd time. Elegant atmosphere and decor, a bit too pricey wine list, sort of slow service ( both times restaurant was not very crowded), friendly and helpful staff. Mushroom burger was bland and not worth the price. The flan cheesecake was amazing! Other people in our dinner party mostly enjoyed... More

Went with 6 co-workers to Firebirds yesterday. From the host giving us attitude and not sitting us in dining room until majority of party arrived was silly especially since dining room was mostly empty. Half the group got Filet Mignon and Crab Cake combo. Crab Cake tasted strange, average at best. Co-workers were equally unimpressed. Steak was well done when... More

We visited Firebirds in Short Pump, VA yesterday. It was my third time to this location. The atmosphere is beautiful, but rather dark, so be prepared for that. They also have a lovely sitting area outside. The menu has a lot of selection. We ordered the Lobster/Spinach Queso as an app, and that was delicious. We ordered 2 steaks (one... More

I'm surprised to see any negative reviews of this place. My wife and I spent a night in Richmond on our way to New York and had dinner at Firebirds. To start, the service was exemplary. Our server (Felipe) was extremely friendly, professional and very knowledgable. He made great recommendations and did everything he could to make sure we enjoyed... More
