I start with Dessert! The Creme Brûlée and Cheesecake is the best ever! The entrees are just as good! Beef, seafood and pasta dishes are our favorites. And the service and atmosphere is excellent! Always visit this restaurant when I am there and other family members who own condos close have found it as well! Love it!

Can not say adequate amounts of good things about the ambiance and the meal at Firefly..but Wow!! We were dressed up and it was okay..others were sundress or polo shirt casual and that was okay too. We had stuffed filet mignon, duck, crab cakes all were a credit to the chef.

My husband and I ate at Firefly on our wedding anniversary; we had no reservations, just popped in. It was a Wednesday night but the main dining room was already filled; however the hostess moved a reservation around in the bar so we ate there. Each employee was attentive and added to the overall experience in a really nice way.... More

We simply visited this restaurant because it was near our hotel and it was AMAZING! The staff is really friendly and quick to get your refills and knowledgeable about the menu. The ambiance is nice and has great decor, there's a tree in the middle of the restaurant with lights strung around it. I ordered for an appetizer the Nigiri... More

The bartender at our hotel recommended this restaurant for a fine dining experience. It's in a strip mall, so there is no view. I'd say the decor is a bit dated...trying too hard to be elegant. However, the food was outstanding and definitely worth the trip after eating overcooked fish a beach bars all week. The drinks were tasty and... More

We read the great reviews on Tripadvisor about the food and service at the Firefly so we decided to try it on a Wednesday night. When we called the restaurant to ask about reservations, they said it was a good idea and the next opening was an hour from the time of the call. When we arrived, about half the... More
