We had a wonderful dinner this evening. Victor did a great job as our friendly, attentive server. The steaks were cooked as ordered and were delicious with that smoky flavor. I enjoyed the crisp broccoli and salad with it. We also liked the option of...an 8 oz glass of wine throughout the dinner. Firebirds is great because it splits the gap between the low end steak chains and the super high end steakhouses. Food is fresh and chef prepared over wood fires, but there are no candles or tablecloths and the noise levels (and this time, the lights) are high. So while I wouldn’t call it romantic, it was a delicious, enjoyable dinner. We’ll be back.More

My husband had been to Firebirds once and wanted to take me for our anniversary. This was my first time going and definitely not my last time. We ordered dinner which was excellent! I ordered the filet and shrimp and my husband the filet. Both...were out of this world!! What we really impressed us was the manager stopped by, to check on us and see how we were enjoying our anniversary dinner. Our server told him we were celebrating 26 years together!! A little while later he brought us cheesecake for dessert. It's the little things like a simple cheesecake and hello at the table that will make us go back. Kudos for a great job!!!More

I have eaten at a different local of the restaurant in Ohio. The truth be told it was a MUCH better experience that this location. While the food was OK the service was slow and the entire experience seemed to be a bit OFF.More

We hadn’t been to Firebirds in a few years. Overall it was okay. Tried to sit inside (wasn’t asked if we wanted patio seating). After two minutes I insisted we sit outside, absolutely freezing inside! Patio is all shaded and actually quite nice. Service was...okay. One pet peeve which happens everywhere: when someone orders iced tea PUT ICE IN IT! Gets tiring having to ask for a glass of ice. I ordered Caesar salad which was good, huge. Also had fried fish tacos and hubby had ribs. He liked his meal and cleaned his plate. Mine was fair, fish on each soft tortilla was fried to death. Didn’t even fit into the tortilla. On the other hand I liked the fries. May come again but will pass on those tacos! $47 for two meals and one beer. Really kind of steep for the quality.More

Just happened to see this place while searching for a place close to our area of town. Decided to call for a reservation on a Saturday night late. Happy they had an opening during the epidemic. We arrived to find it to be beautifully appointed...with stone pillars and tons of woodwork, large booths and an incredibly large covered patio with paddle fans and drapes for the sun and privacy. An impressive menu featuring a variety of dishes that would please anyone's pallet. The wine menu was adequate although pricing was a bit pricey for the selection. The service was terrific and the food was impressive. Can't wait to return to sit on the patio with friends and enjoy a great meal.More

Adam, our server, was truly exceptional and made the celebration special. We had the ribeye and meatloaf. The side salads were quite generous and flavorful. Had their special clam chowder and it was. One intriguing side was the fried spinach. I highly recommend it. But...a huge shout out to Adam.More

I love when you try something new and it is beyond expectations in food and service. That was my experience here. A friend chose this restaurant and I was not familiar with it or really had even heard of it. I didn't really like the...mobile experience when checking out the restaurant in advance, but let's get on to the important things. The food and the experience. Loved this place and this lunch! It had a warm and Inviting atmosphere with a causal yet sophisticated flair. The food was flavorful and absolutely delicious and at a fair price. The service was beyond outstanding. Everyone from the hostess, server, and manager just seemed to not only be good at their job but enjoy it too. Make sure to check out the food pics too for a visual idea of lunch. We had a "Sharable" (appetizer/starter) and went with the Jalapeno deviled eggs - House made with candied bacon. $8.95. Delicious. This was an impulse just because It sounded so good and I had a craving. Honestly could have skipped this but glad I didn't and took 3 home from lunch. Side note they have the perfect to go containers for any leftovers, especially for the eggs. The eggs were perfect and loved the fresh jalapeno. I didn't think the bacon added that much but who doesn't like bacon. Steak Sandwich; $13.95. Ribeye slab of meat with lettuce, onions, and tomato on the side. I went bun-less as I am on Keto. For the complement (side) I choose the port mushrooms. Such a good choice for me. It was seriously a steak and not what I would imagine a steak sandwich to be. The mushrooms were the best side. I may get double portions of the mushrooms next time. My friend went with the Pineapple Chicken; $13.99. The menu description: Citrus seasoned kabob, grilled and basted with pineapple honey chile glaze, served with pineapple, vegetables, and for the complement (side) - southwest au gratin potatoes. She said it was a very good. I know It took everything I could do to not steal her potatoes au gratin from her. When I am off my diet, I am going back for a mound of those myself! I did want to highlight an issue during the visit. Nothing too big, but the steak for my sandwich was well done instead of medium well (and it was). Props to our excellent server Nico (Nicolett). She was the absolute best. Provided recommendations, was kind, personable, knowledgeable and gave us the extra time we needed to catch up during our visit. She read the table very well and were not rushed. When my food arrived, as she presented my dish she asked me to cut and check the steak and as she thought was overcooked. She explained that a new steak was already on the grill through wanted to provide the dish and walk me through the situation . And this was for a lunch sandwich. Impressive. That attention to detail and customer satisfaction is not common any more. It shouldn't matter if it is an app and a drink, a lunch, or full dinner. You should always have good service. I spoke to the Manager, and made sure to share our overall experience and how wonderful it was and how Nico is an excellent server. She really went above and beyond. It could have been a whole different experience but she had it down. This lunch was a perfect way to end the week and I look forward to trying this place again!More

We've been here for lunch and dinner. We enjoy the selections on the menu and the service. The place is lively but not loud.The onion rings are great. The salads are huge and fresh. The steak sandwich has been inconsistent. Sometimes great and sometimes not...edible. We'd pass on the French fries.More
