The food is always very tasty at Firebird's. There were a few glitches in what we were served versus what we had ordered, but the staff was quick and courteous about fixing the errors, so it was still a good dining experience.

While the service and quality of food was excellent, I was surprised to find that what I thought would be Easter Brunch (10:45 am) reservation turned out to be their dinner menu. Who in their right mind serves a dinner menu for brunch? Lame. Our server was fantastic, but this did not meet our expectations. I’ll stick with Barking Mad Cafe, their competitor across the street.

It would help if the restaurant TRAINED its servers. My husband got his bowl of soup but my Salad didn't show until my entree was served and the salad plate/bowl was TOO BIG to fit on the table with my dinner entree. I have experienced this type of service MANY times and it is getting OLD.

This restaurant had a very comfortable ambience. Food was very good, but the lobster queso was outstanding, as was the crusty bread that came with the meal. The rib eye was cooked properly to my specification. I wouldnt call it outstanding, though. My baked potato with everything would have been exceptional but way too salty, and the waiter never brought the pepper that it needed and was requested. The house red wine was very good also and I would recommend.

Food was delicious, though took forever to cook, or bring to our table. For 2 steaks, one rare and the other medium rare, it was quite a while before we received our food. Looked like they were overwhelmed with take-out orders.
Other unfortunate incident is that they ran out of bread.
Otherwise everything was good.

They never disappoint. We got there pretty early before our reservation and yet they made everything possible on their end to sit us without waiting much. The servers are always nice and the food is delicious.

Great bartenders, attentive servers and fresh and delicious meals. Visited this restaurant in Mesa Arizona last summer and have been waiting to try it back home. Worth the wait. Only complaint is that the drinks are outrageously priced. But not much of a complaint given the high quality service, comfortable and clean ambience and excellently prepared dishes.

My wife and I were excited to be back on Friday, 2/26. We had the Double Black Diamond Martinis (epic) and the Buffalo wings, My wife had the Durango burger with the au gratin potatoes, and I had the 9 oz blue cheese filet with grilled shrimp and a loaded baked potato. We took a Big Daddy’s cake and more Double Black Diamonds home. Everything was fantastic. The server was wonderful as well. We had a great time and will be back soon!

We got the 3 course meal. It was all so delicious. The steak was done to perfection. The cook came out to tell my husband the salmon could have been overcooked and did he want another one. He said no and it was done perfectly.

The food was very good! The one thing that we really didn't care for was a young lady coming to our table asking that we not stay any longer than 90 minutes. It took our server 5 minutes to approach our table, not to mention when you are ordering well done steaks, they take a while. She even walked by and gave us a look about an hour after we had been seated. What was she going to do, say our time was up? Not to mention that we drove an hour to get there. We understand Covid restrictions and not being able to seat many people, but again, we have to wait on our food and have time to eat it. This made us very uncomfortable and would make me think twice about going there again. Also, we couldn't believe that a double shot of Convosier/Hennesey (can't remember which my husband had) was $30.00 each.

Had a great social distance business meeting, now that restaurants are open at 25% capacity. Tables were spread out and they allowed us to pull up some chairs on the ends so our guests could also have more space. Our waiter was excellent and the food was great. Highly recommend.

Overall the experience was fine but when we got there we were informed there was a 90 min table limit which is fine but we had to wait almost an hour before our food arrived. Our salad was supposed to come first and didn’t come until after the main meal. The server was very friendly but forwards the end we couldn’t even find him to put our dessert order in and another server took care of our bill. Just wasn’t up to par with previous experiences.

Other than mashed potatoes (had a strong ammonia like taste) food was fantastic. Staff was great, replaced the pan in kitchen and brought out another side. Assume they weren’t fresh, won’t prevent us from returning

I had cheese filet with shrimp and southwest potatoes au gratin. All excellent choices and cooked perfectly. My daughter had seafood pasta (loved it) and my wife had the peppercorn sirloin with loaded baked potato. Everything was delicious but we had no room for desert. Would definitely come back.
