We had had a late lunch here several times and had found it good. This was the first time for dinner and my initial impression was that with the main room almost filled it was too loud. We each had two appetizers and a nice glass of wine which made for a comfortable meal. My wife had a good French... More

Ate here last night on a double date with my boyfriend, friend, and her husband. The hostess was very nice when checking in to my 7:15 reservation. We arrived before my friend and her husband so we ordered drinks while we waited. My boyfriend had a pumpkin tini and I had my favorite wine called Frisk. This is my first... More

Have been to dinner many times at this restaurant and food and service were generally quite good. We decided today to try their Sunday brunch and were very disappointed. Brunch is offered until 2PM on Sunday, we arrived about 12:30. Our waitress, the bartender, was obviously more interested in customers at the bar. We had to flag her down for... More

Firefly is a great spot in Manchester whatever you are looking for. I have had informal meals with friends, anniversary dinners with my wife, and brunch with the family. Always great food, wonderful atmosphere, and good service and attention.

We went to Firefly for dinner on a beautiful early summer night. The space was pleasing, the staff welcoming, friendly knowledgeable and prompt. We had Calamari with marinara and aolia . The calamari was lightly breaded and perfectly cooked. Both the sauces were okay but I was hoping for more of a zing. I ordered scallop and shrimp on linguini.... More

We ate at a large table in the bar, and were very comfortable. Service was great. There are a good number of quality microbrews on tap. The wine list was relatively small, but did have a number of interesting, we'll-priced bottles (note to Firefly: please add the vintages to the wine list!). The food was good, but not great. The...

For frame of reference: I travel extensively and part of my job requires entertaining clients at a wide variety of establishments. I'm familiar with just about every fine dining option in the greater Boston area for lunch and dinner. Firefly absolutely exceeded expectations and I am thrilled to find a place of this caliber in Manchester NH! Overall ambiance is... More

Tried this restaurant last night with friends after a concert. We had made reservations but for a Saturday night about 8pm, there were many open tables. Had trouble finding the entrance as it is not on the street but rather around the corner in a parking lot. That being said we entered a very nice area with list of exposed... More

It can be hard to get a table at this popular eatery, so do call ahead for a reservation if there is anything going on at the Verizon Center or a ball game in town. I've always enjoyed this restaurant with its trendy atmosphere and fresh food. I can't choose just one meal...they have all been good and the drinks... More

Nice atmosphere and good variety on the menu, including a few vegetarian options. But salmon over goat cheese ravioli was too tempting to pass up. It was excellent. Went with a large group and got excellent service.
