    The atmosphere was beautiful and calming. We were there to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. My family and I really enjoyed ourselves the only issue was the service that was provided. Our orders were messed up in between each order we had. Our server was impatient, rude at times, was being a stickler about things, and very short with me and my family members. We weren’t happy with how he spoke to us nor treated us. Overall we loved the place and the food, just wished we had a different server.

    We had brunch. I added grilled salmon to the avocado toast salad and it offered the perfect balance. My husband ordered pasta off the regular menu and had enough to eat for lunch the next day. Service was quick and friendly.

    I definitely don’t recommend the steak at Firebirds. I had the 9oz filet and my wife had the 12oz sirloin. They just weren’t worth the money ($35-$45). They weren’t flavorful at all. Either go high end like Ruth’s Chris, Capital Grille, Prime 47, Sullivans, etc ($50-$70) and get a really good steak or go for the lower price point like Texas Roadhouse ($25-$35) and get a much more flavorful steak.

    Or first time there, simply amazing, highly recommended. Ambience, food, service, price prefect. Seated as soon as we walked in just prior to our reservation, easier was prompt, knowledgeable polite,engaging and professional. Wine? Firebirds House Cab perfect. We ordered the Jalapeño Deviled eggs, Burrata to start, slow roasted Prime Rib and the Red Snapper. All exceptional, a must try, we'll be back. Great place as a couple, family or with friends

    Everything was delicious! We were disappointed in the service. While our waitress knew the bourbon list from memory, one of us ordered sweet tea, and she brought them unsweet tea. When she was questioned about it, she said they don’t have sweet tea, but she didn’t mention it when it was ordered, nor bring any sugar to add to it however, she was kind enough to replace it with something else. Also, while we were still eating, she asked if she could box up one of our meals, which was very rude. She definitely made us feel rushed. Great environment!

    Our experience started at the door with a friendly hostess that showed us to our seats directly. She walked a little fast leaving my 80 y/o mother in the wind but did recognize it almost to our table and apologized. Our server was delightful and accommodating. We ordered an appetizer which came quickly and was delicious and salads which followed. The salads were very good as well. Dinner came next, which looked great! Both steaks were cooked to perfection but were a bit under seasoned... like none at all. My potatoes were very good but could have been hotter. Serving sizes were big. We got desert to go, and they were amazing as well. Overall, our experience was good. I'd try again for sure.

    The restaurant was great and our Server was phenomenal, but for some reason my Surf and Turf was not cooked correctly. The filet was over done and and the lobster tail was under cooked. The server took the tail back and brought back another tail that was raw on the under side as well. My husband and I go the Firebirds frequently; have never had a bad meal there before so maybe this time was the exception.?

    We Love Firebirds. Great Steaks at a reasonable price and the BLT Salad is our Favorite of any restaurant we go to. The service is always prompt and attentive. My wife like her steak medium well and it always seems to come out well instead. Otherwise it would be 5-Star on the food as well.

    We had a great dining experience. The food was good and the service was even better. Our server Jason was so good that my sister and I was talking about how we wish every restaurant had his type of service. Top that with excellent food and great company made both of our date night very special. Thank you Firebirds and Jason! Btw, we had salmon, bbq ribs, grilled honey chicken, parmesan mashed potatoes, au gratin potatoes. The au gratin potatoes were so good. My husband had to order two. Lol.

    We waited almost 15 minutes for a waitress to come take out drink order. Although the restaurant was almost empty, Bread was never brought to the table although it was bought to others. The glasses the waitress brought out water in were dirty, not once but TWICE. Drinks were not refilled unless we asked. I asked my burger to be cooked well done only to cut it down the middle and it was almost red. The waitress that brought the food appeared irritated. When the bill was bought out, I was charged for 3 drinks however only 2 were ordered. I’ve been here several times before and the entire experience has always been great.y lunch companions have never been before and I doubt they will return, Firebirds has definitely gone downhill.

    The Food has always been way above par. The service is quite attentive, which is not that common anymore. Unfortunately, I'm always disappointed with the dress of most fellow patrons. Firebirds is such a fine dining establishment, it feel requiring collard shirts and no jeans or sweats would be most appropriate. I recognize that Indiana is not New York City. However, expecting your clients to match the dining experience is not setting the standards too high (IMHO). For me, it enhances the experience if patrons were held to some minor formal standard. I love that the service staff wear black and most always look classy and/or appropriate and the hostess and greeters often will wear professional greeting attire, but that has become a bit soft as of late. Just an old man's perspective...nothing that should deter anyone from enjoying the dining at Firebirds in Carmel/Indianapolis.

    Food good, but I specifically asked for the spicey pasta to come out at a hot temp.. It wasn’t hot at all- just warm. And there was hardly anyone in the restaurant, so it wasn’t busy. Brewed tea really good, but we had to keep waiting for refills. Waitress nice but not on top of refills at all. Bummer to eat food without a drink. Bread was good. The choc cake we’ve had before , but this time the cake was dry and overcooked. Otherwise the food tasted good.

    First time diners - delicious food, wonderful service. Only downsides were the noise level (open-air environment is likely cause) and it felt quite cold in the main dining space. However, oh my the food! So good, we will return!

    Ordered some filet steaks and salmon dinners. The ceasar salad was EXCELLENT and I would highly recommend it. Tortilla soup was equally as good. Filets were over seasoned and VERY SALTY. Cooked well, but cook needs to let customer add salt if needed.

    This is not our first time visit but it has been a few years since last one. I would have given better ratings if deserved but being honest and informing here. Took a few minutes longer than expected to get to our table- two others already seated at our table but the 1st girl at station had us stand by and a second girl came back up and she knew so the 1st one apologized after being confused. The other two guest had no issues giving our name and were seated directly prior where we could not see them. We were given a larger round table making it too large and not as cozy for 4 guests-other tables for 4 vacant. Took a little longer for waitress to get to us after first two in party had waters already and drinks. Waitress did not know drink ingredients of a second Old Fashioned she mentioned that was not listed on menu and had to go away to find out. The BLT salad was too saturated with dressing for my wife's and mine. The Salmon was very good along with the mixed veggies. We would like to try the happy hour times so we will come back.
