The space, particularly indoors, is very attractive. Alas the food is mediocre. This was our second time at Firebird. We won’t return.

The food was slow to come out. My wife ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio, but they came back 15 minutes later and said they were out. My sister doesn’t eat dairy so ordered her mixed vegetables without butter. They came with butter. No apologies but they did redo the order. We ordered the equivalent of Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer. It came late - after we had finished the entrees - and was not the same flavor but Buffalo Wing sauce instead. My aged ribeye was tougher than I expected. All in all very poor service from the kitchen. They are understaffed.

The service was very challenged. Getting water refilled took 10 minutes, twice. Dinner arrived within 45 seconds of the appetizer. Screaming children and their blaring loud iPad movie playing behind us was so irritating. Table top TVs without headphones should not be allowed. Just a disappointment this time...

One of our entrées came out 40 minutes after the other two.
We also ordered the surf and turf with the 9 ounce filet and the lobster tail was completely overdone and very tough. We were not offered any compensation after making our waiter aware of that and nor did they comp the meatloaf dinner which arrived much much later than the other two dinners because of a order screwup. They did offer a dessert but we felt that was insult to injury because of the other two situations with the entrées. We felt they should’ve comped those two meals! We eat there all the time but now question whether we will ever go back!
Very disappointed

I was in town on a short family visit. I’d made a reservation and you guys were very accommodating! We were seated at a round table for 7….I’m terrible with names but our server, a lady with dark hair, was wonderful!

Disappointed with the seating arrangement and location. Unfortunately we were seated in the rear of the restaurant. There is row of about 4 booths along the rear that is just a few feet away from the where all the preparation goes on. Did I say "all the preparation", this is where all the carry-out orders are packaged up and where the Servers hangout and do their thing. Understand this is a very busy area, lots of action. Well the booths are situated perpendicular the all of this, the wall separating the booth from all of this is maybe shoulder high and about 18" wide. The area where the servers stand doing their thing seemed to be elevated slightly. So with this elevation and closeness the servers loomed right over you while you were trying to enjoy your meal and carry on conversation with your other guests. Annoying to say the least, they were right over your shoulder and it felt like they were looking down at you the entire time you're trying to eat.
Understand I am a fairly good patron of Firebirds, have enjoyed many very delightful meals there. Food has always been fantastic, service excellent, and the value generally good. But this time WOW what a bummer, we were there celebrating my wife's birthday so it was a special evening out, one we hoped to enjoy with our other guests.
One would think this is not the first time this has been brought up, I'd bet probably more times than Firebirds would like to admit. It would seem like a simple fix of installing a 2 foot high etched glass panel across the top of the wall to separate the guests from all the commotion would be in order and certainly help keep their patrons happy and coming back. Cheap fix for keeping 'em coming back!
I must say that after discussing this the Mgr we were offered complimentary dessert and hand full of apologies, plus were given a $25 gift card. All very nice and much appreciated, but the damage had been done. The moral of all this, is to make sure you tell them not to seat in the back row!!

Everything was great and staff was excellent, but with Covid on the rise again, I would have preferred that the employees and wait staff wear masks, and for some social distancing between tables/patrons.

The food is always great but last night the service was especially excellent. Prompt and attentive and the food even came out quickly, such a rarity these days. I just wish the place was a little closer so we could go more often!

The meal I ordered can’t to the table very under cooked. The manager took it back to further cook it but my side dishes went cold. It made a Special evening not so Special. I expected better Service from them it’s not like it was a 20.00 bill. 1 Cocktail and dinner for two was like 115.00

Service was off, bread was cold..
But everyone was fast when we asked for something they forgot or we needed something. So I give them 4 out of 5.

The Tenderloin Steak Salad was perfect! The portion was a bit large for me but I ate the rest for lunch the next day. Great flavor, super tender meat! Our party of six were able to talk easily in the booths with the tall backs. It was a cosy, fun evening for all of us!
