Wood fired grill a delight to taste

Went there specifically for the wood fired grill and ordered salmon and barbecue ribs. Taste of wood was not as evident as I expected it so I checked the grilling area to verify they did indeed have a 2 ft x 1 ft grill box with burning wood blocks (my own grilling is done with oak embers and has... read more

Server missed a salad order and when it was not delivered said we never ordered a salad. Happy Hour was honored at our table last week but not tonight. Food was pretty good. Manager never visited our table.

We started at the with a round of drinks. The service was first rate and the drinks just as we ordered. We moved into the dining room and enjoyed a super meal. I had the sliced beef and mashed potatoes which was cooked just right. My friends had burgers which they said were very well also. The atmosphere is nice,... More

Since moving to Virginia from Arizona we have not been able to find some great quality American food that offers the best in everything. We were so relieved to find Firebird's, a personal favorite in Arizona. If you want great service and some well prepared steaks or chicken, then here ya go!!! A must try is the BLT salad, and...

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Richmond area. Located at the Short Pump Mall, it’s very convenient. Service is very good and the food is delicious. Be sure to try the Grilled Shrimp and Strawberry salad and their steaks, but you can’t go wrong with any selection.

I'd been wanting to visit a Firebirds for some time and this was my opportunity on a business trip. There is a reasonable variety of selections. The salmon was perfectly cooked with vegetables and potatoes. They seem to have a wide variety of wines. The main dining room is buzzing but a professional flair. The roaring fire on a cold... More

This is a great restaurant but not for me at peak times. It's much more quiet before 6pm and sitting on the side provides an intimate setting. The wait staff is knowledgable and not obtrusive. Prime rib is excellent and also the salads. This will be our go-to restaurant for our date night.

We have been here several times and keep returning for the filet (with or without blue cheese) and Firebirds Chicken Pasta (the sauce is amazing). The service has always been good and the food has yet to disappoint. I suggest that you split a salad if you don’t want to take a large portion of your main course home.

Firebird's is the type of restaurant that I want to love. It has a ski lodge feel and great layout of the restaurant. The bar is cozy and the dining room is welcoming. Firebird's menu is boring and uneventful. Nothing on the menu stood out as a signature dish. I ordered the tuna over mixed greens. The tuna was over... More

We are sorry to hear that you did not like our menu selection or flavor profile and that wine service offered by us and followed by the industry at both chain and independent establishments is not to your liking. Firebirds has successfully grown from its roots because it was founded on, and continues to live by, the highest of standards... More
