Review of Firebirds Wood Fired Grill

Village Market Pl, Morrisville, NC 27560

Overall Rating


Menu items are marked with a GF icon that indicated the dish “may be ordered gluten free.” Only one of the two drink menus included the GF symbols. I ordered a blackberry margarita and asked our server to confirm with the bar that it was in fact gluten free. When he brought our drinks out he did not follow up at all. Being that I was out with my bf’s family, didn’t want to make a scene, and knew the drink should be GF naturally, I decided to let it go.

For dinner I ordered the striped bass, served with a key lime butter sauce, over a rice pilaf and asparagus. This was marked with the GF symbol, and I reiterated to our server that I had celiac, and said “I see this is marked with the ‘may be’ GF symbol — can you just confirm that it will be?” His response was “oh yes they take gluten free very seriously, they will change their gloves.” Unclear whether it was the drink, food or both, but by the time we left the restaurant I was already feeling sick and continued to feel it through the night.

Personally would not feel safe eating here again, which is a shame as I know this is the family’s favorite restaurant to eat at.
