I must say that I felt like this place took my food sensitivities more seriously than any other place that I have been. Was trying to avoid gluten, dairy and some other things as well and they made sure that I was able to get steak and veggies that were safe. Now I will say that I was given take out and even though I requested specifically a gluten-free meal, there was bread in the bag oh, so I guess I need to take a star off for that. Dine in and you'll be safer. This will be an expensive splurge meal though, but DELICIOUS.

This is my first time time trying Firebirds and I was extremely nervous because the night before we went to the restaurant I looked on their menu online and they only had two or three things that were GF so I got the Colorado chicken salad it was good but there was not enough lettuce and WAY too many toppings. I also don't know why they would put all the stuff I got on my salad together it was pecans, blue cheese crumbles, cranberries, vinaigrette dressing and the lettuce of course the blue cheese crumbles tasted really weird with the pecans. it was a nice day so I decided to sit outside and eat but I could not see in the restaurant to possibly see my food.First they brought out the bread then they brought out my friends food then they brought out mine. Overall it was a good experience.

I had an excellent experience here. I checked the website before I went and they didn't have a GF menu posted so I called ahead and they assured me that they do have a written menu and are very careful. At time of posting this, I see that the menu is now posted.

My server was very respectful and quickly brought me the GF menu and said she could have the manager answer any questions. She did not make me feel that I was asking a lot of her or the restaurant (which so many people do) to accommodate my diet. The manager personally delivers the food of anyone with dietary restrictions at Firebirds. The manager on duty at that time was very thorough in explaining all the precautions that had been taken and left me feeling very confident that my food was safe so I could have a relaxing evening out with my friends. The food was delicious and the GF selection is large.

This is a great place for a date or for meeting up with a group where you can feel safe and you and your dining companions also have a ton of delicious options and cool ambiance. I definitely recommend it!

In town visiting from NYC. Informative GF menu. Manager brought all food to the table and insured me that extra care was taken. Ribs and mashed potatoes were very good. Will come back again.

Once again, my experience here has been excellent. I let the server know that I'm extremely sensitive to gluten, and the manager himself carefully brought my food out, explained the extra precautions they took to ensure there was no cross contamination, and in general left me feeling well catered to. Plus, the food was quite good!

The food is awesome! Most of their food is gf, so there are many good choices for sides and salads, which isn't the case at other steak houses. Our gf kids love the ribs.

Everything I've had there has been delicious , and they make a point to note the GF menu options and take extra care with them even if the dish isn't one that would 'typically' have gluten (salmon and veggies, for instance). Never once have I felt like I was being a hassle because of my GF needs!

Had a great experience here! I am a cautious celiac and they were great at answering questions and handling gluten free. You can view their options on their menu online. I didn’t get sick and the steak was wonderful.

Wow! Pleasantly surprised. We called in advance to make sure they can accommodate gluten free and felt very welcome from the start. Menu items clearly marked GF and mgr remembered us from the call. Filet was like butter and cooked perfectly to our liking. Loaded potato was sooo worth it! There wasn't a crumb left on our plates. We truly enjoyed the woodfire flavors and it was fun to be able to watch all the fire action. Cozy atmosphere for a date night πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

This is one of our favorite go-to restaurants. They are great with both gluten and dairy allergies. The food is phenomenal. I’ve dined at this location over 40 times and never gotten sick. My absolute favorite thing on their menu is the salmon and their green beans. Seriously, I dream about their green beans they are so good. My daughter also has a dairy allergy and the ribs are GF/ DF and she loves them!
