As chains go, Firebirds is one of the best we have been to. My husband and I had been there once before and remembered it was fun and the food was good yada yada. Our son graduated from college yesterday and wanted to go to Firebirds for dinner because he had heard good things about it. My initial inclination was that it didn't seem like the type of place you'd want to go after graduation. I was expecting that my son would have picked something a little fancier, but since it was his pick, off we went.
We all loved our dining experience there. The bar is way cool, lots of pretty bottles of different liquors all lit up and it's got a very cozy and fun vibe. We didn't get to sit in the bar because our table was ready right on time, so we headed into the restaurant, which is also very nicely decorated. Dim lighting, stone walls, wine bottles recessed in walls all made for a very nice atmosphere. The four of us were seated in a booth that could have easily sat 8 so we were very comfy.
The food was excellent. I had beef kabobs with grilled veggies. Beef was tender and cooked nice and rare, as I requested. Veggies were fresh and super crisp. My son loved his chili rubbed steak, my other son thought his burger was cooked to perfection and my husband raved about his ribs.
Service was good and the waiter was attentive and polite.
Overall, we were all pleasantly surprised that a chain restaurant made for such a wonderful night out. Saw a couple of other grads there too, so apparently others felt Firebirds was "celebration worthy". We will definitely go back lots more times since it's convenient to our home, prices are reasonable, food is very good and we really enjoyed the atmosphere.
