It's frustrating when you go to the same restaurant multiple times and they keep changing the way they make the menu items. I used to love the grilled salmon salad and have looked forward to having it again, but it keeps shrinking! Please go back to the nice generous serving of salad that you used to serve!

Overall a good spot. I'm not impressed with the Prime Rib.... doesn't seem freshly roasted... a bit tough and dry.

It's a bit pricey but overall ok...

We made a reservation for 7:45. We got seated right away even though we were a few minutes early. The server was very attentive and could tell when we needed a bit more time to review the menu. The food came out and was delicious. We got the onion rings for the first time and were surprised how good they were! My friend and I wanted to catch up, and it was really easy to hear each other during the conversation.

The food was excellent, as usual, and the service was attentive without being intrusive - in my books, that's superlative. My wife and I had a very enjoyable lunch - on her birthday!

I didn't appreciate I had to wait 15 minutes to be seated with an reservation and 2 couples who came in after us and didn't have a reservation were seated as soon as they came in. Then when my food came out it was cold but, I went on and ate it because we waited long enough.

We've been here before and really enjoyed ourselves, so I'll accept this trip as an off night. Too bad it was Valentine's Day.

Service was great from the welcome at the door to the hostess that seated us to our attentive server - except for the weird incident where another server (not ours) snatched the dessert menu from our table before we were finished deciding (so... No dessert!). The onion rings were terrific. My wife loved her spinach dinner salad. My Caesar side salad was miniscule. I mean literally give or six forks full and easily half of it was parmesan cheese. The ribs were excellent as usual. I ordered the special Beef Tenderloin Oscar. Although the meat was perfectly cooked, the tenderloin was really 1/4 fat that needed to be trimmed off and v the "Oscar" was four small lumps of crab meat.

It wasn't terrible, just not up to standard. Hope it's better next time, because I WILL be going back.

We celebrated Valentine’s Day. The food was excellent as it was hot. The food was served fast. Our drinks took a long time and the servers seemed overwhelmed. Overall, it was very good. I received a white rose before we left the restaurant.

Bad service and bad food!

Sucks for this to happen on Valentines Day.

Didn’t get any bread

Send the soup back-very bad!

Should have sent back my wife’s dinner-my bad!

I would recommend Firebirds with some hesitation. The food was good. Prices are high. Our server was nice but we felt very rushed the entire time. He stopped by our table--what seemed like--every 2 minutes asking if everything was alright. He interrupted our conversations every time--and clearly "everything was alright" and we didn't need him at that moment. I really wish servers would be aware of when their clients are talking and that it's very rude to continually interrupt.

My sister and I both have February 14th birthdays. Firebirds has become our 2 year old tradition. Our server really tried but missed a few important details with our orders and timing. The Manager, hostesses were excellent. The manager on duty went out of her way to assure our b/day lunch was great. Thank you for the Creme brûlée cheesecake b/d candle desert. Thank you hostesses for the happy birthday song. Overall our meal and experience were good. We’ll most likely return next year! Thanks Firebirds!

We had our pre-daddy daughter dance dinner. It was six eight year old girls and their Fathers. The hostess Nina, was great. She accommodated all of the silly stuff we wanted to do to make the night special for all the little girls. The rest was just as nice.

I usually really like this place but have had issues lately. Went in for happy hour and although the bartenders were very nice, the food was incredibly slow to come to the bar. I was hoping to pair my items with my draft beers but unfortunately that never happened. When i asked the bartender about it she just said sorry.

I believe water must be serve first before the waiter/waitress introduces you to the drinks.That is my opinion. Thanks.

We made a reservation on a busy Saturday night. We needed to increase the number of our party twice. The manager could not have been nicer about it and very accommodating. He took a personal interest in our party of 8 and made sure everything worked out. The entire wait staff was on point and provided great service. Well done and will return for sure.

Service was good with attentive wait staff. Fish entrees were a little over cooked. Big surprise is that there is no rice option for starch on menu only potatoes, curious given the relative availability of rice and the near equal expense of rice vs potatoes.
