Firebirds Rocky Mountain Grill Phoenix Reviews
Nov 28, 2006
Welcome to the taste of the great wide open cattle ranch and winter hunting lodge...a unique steak house that brings the flavor of Aspen to the desert of phoenix.
This restaurant boasts high wooden ceilings, fireplaces, wood burning grills, and even an impressive buck mounted on the wall. Though Phoenix is lacking in snow during the winter, one can't help but feel they have just walked into a ski lodge.
This is a steak house, where the succulent meats are fired on a wood burning grill; however, for the anti-beefers there are selections such as pecan crusted trout, southwestern crabcakes, firebirds chicken pasta, sesame encrused or wood grilled salmon, and a selection of other salads and sandwhiches.
On my recent visit I tried the Filet Mignon, wrapped in applewood smoked bacon and covered in a delicious bleu cheese sauce. The marvelous side dash was Firebird's loaded Russet Potato - rolled in sea salt, doushed with creams and cheeses and chives and bacons, oh my!
Some people are reluctant to try anything but steak in a steak house, but I must say that even the coconut shrimp with mango chutney were a delight.
If you talk to the bartender, he or she will recommend one of their "black diamond martinis," a signature drink that is a popular favorite. Look for large jars, filled with pineapple slices, located on the bar. These are soaked and seeped in vodka, which - when blended with ice - make the black diamond martini unique and delectable!
With a dinner for two, you can expect to pay at least $50 - granted you each get an entree and two drinks. Everything on the menu is fairly filling, though we had room for one of the desserts, the creme brulee cheesecake! Very good!
I believe the restaurant prides itself on making the customers happy, though it is sometimes hard to get everyone to be on the same page. On a previous visit, the kitchen prepared a steak the wrong way, it was sent back, the rest of the table finished their food before the second edition steak returned, and the unhappycustomer was given a $50 gift certificate. The unahppy customer returned, and dined as a happy customer, on the house!
You read a review about a place, and people want to focus too much on the negatives; like finding a bit of string from the pork roast in the mashed potatoes. Hey, it happens...those people in the kitchen have a lot of work to do, and the food still tastes great. I give kudos to restaurants that really aim to please, and encourage patrons to come back and have a better experience, on them!
