    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!

    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!

    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!

    The restaurant has a GF menu. I asked for help from the server to try to get a completely GF meal. I ordered a plain NY Strip steak and plain baked potato. I still got a minor reaction from the meal. Probably a cross contamination issue since the steak and potato were defiantly plain. I cannot recommend as safe.

    Delayed review - was there a couple of weeks ago. All I can say is: YES PLEASE!! I have celiac disease. Firebirds not only has a gluten free menu, but they have: Great food (had a strawberry & spinach salad with shrimp) Great service Great treatment of special needs - A manager and wait staff walked my food out together to be sure it didn’t get switched, glutened, etc. Thank you Firebirds for helping to keep my safe! Oh! And my non-gluten free friend had the exact same salad and loved it too.

    In the past 2 months, my husband, son and I have eaten here 3 times. First 2 times I had the same meal (prime rib and loaded baked potato) and on NYE I had the filet, shrimp and loaded baked potato. The first two times, my stomach was bothering me the next morning. On NYE, I barely made it home before needing the facilities. I don't have the typical gut reaction to gluten, but having been GF for several years now, it must affect me differently. My son, also Celiac, had an upset tummy the next day all 3 times. Sad, because there's some delicious options, but I won't be returning.

    The restaurant has a gluten free menu with prices on it, and they have several procedures in place to minimize risk of gluten contamination. First, the manager will come to the table and talk to you. He told us the only items on the gf menu are the ones that require no alterations, so I should ask about anything on the menu because sometimes accommodations can be made (e.g. Cesar Salad without croutons). The manager alerts the kitchen staff so any dishes will be made with fresh utensils and gloves. Finally, a manager or the chef will take the order to your table. That put my mind at ease.And the food was excellent! We had the seared Ahi tuna as an entree. They left off the spicy mustard, which contains flour, and gave us gf honey mustard instead. I ordered a very filling salad off the gf menu. I even ordered the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. You won't want to share, but you probably should!
