Good Menu with Many Choices

This was my first time at this Bistro. Very nice atmosphere - small wine cellar to your left as you walk in, the bar area to the right-back. We sat at a table to the left of the bar and a fairly quiet evening (Monday night). They have many options on their menu and we started with calamari... read more

Not long before Christmas we dined at a Firefly with my Mom and stepdad. It was our first trip here and I can assure you it won't be our last! The atmosphere was upbeat and engaging. The service was excellent. And the food was outstanding. Started with the sriracha pork meatballs... they were to-die-for delicious. Wow! For my main course... More

I highly recommend Firefly. The food and drinks are excellent and the service is good. We sat in the bar/tavern area at a table for 4 and thought it was a cool atmosphere. I really recommend people try this place.

Firefly has been voted best restaurant in the past and it si easy to taste why. The menu is nicely varied and the food excellent. The historic building is delightful with exposed brick and has great ambiance. This is one of our top 5 regular places to eat during each year.

Went there on a Friday evening. Service was good but food was pretty average. Seating feels crowded.

We visited this restaurant in October and had a very poor experience. Following our submission of a review to Tripadvisor and directly to the restaurant the management responded with a gift certificate and a promise to do better. We visited the restaurant for Sunday brunch again a week ago and since our experience was much better this time we thought... More

good food, excellent service, fair prices, pleasant atmosphere, good parking nearby. Good for adults; and good for kids. "Salmon Burger" was very tasty. Reasonably healthy, not vegan or anything like that, but not a greasy spoon. Just a very nice restaurant; above average overall because it's a solid "good" in all almost all respects. Out-of-the-way location, but worth finding. Probably... More

This restaurant was very good for a date night, or even just a meal with friends. It gave the option of sitting off away from the bar, a little more secluded and romantic. There were TV's and a nice bar area though for friends getting drinks after work. Ordered the special for the night, steak over white wine Alfredo and... More

The go-go bread appetizer is GREAT! My favorite has to be the spinach salad - the fried balls of goat cheese are heaven.
