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 a...

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

My husband and I visited to celebrate my new job, we arrived early (before 5pm) to ensure quick service but encountered anything but. Bread was still in oven, drinks took forever, no small stir straws, dinner took even longer and then my husbands filet was half fat. Not the excellent service we have come to love at this establishment. Before... More

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.
