My wife and I just went to Firefly and it was very good. I had a bacon wrapped steak it was fantastic and she had a beef short rib that was pretty good. I like the atmosphere here,very clean and modern looking. I would come back for sure. Check it out and get yourself a bacon wrapped steak!

In Manchester overnight and not familiar with area. Googled restaurants, and this one mentioned in hotel. Awesome menu, had the carrot bisque on special, Caesar salad, steak special and lemon cake for dessert. No complaints.

The food was incredible, five of us went to Firefly for my birthday. We all got something different and everybody truly loved their meal. Our server was okay, but the star performance here is the food. They also have an extensive beer selection and some very good wine.

Great look to the place but I just wasn't thrilled with the food. It didn't bowl me over. I would go again. Slim on the vegetarian options. Parking is a total bear! Do not park in the lot the restaurant is located with or you'll get towed - it's not their lot. You haven't been to NH if you haven't... More

Last week we had a farewell dinner for an employee, who had requested the Firefly as we had such a good company dinner there at the end of last year. I have eaten here several times since it opened and honestly don't have much but positive comments for the Firefly. Our company dinner in 2013 was enjoyable and the food... More

We made reservations this past January for Sunday brunch, as there are few options in Manchester for brunch. The menu was diverse and delightful. Everyone enjoyed their food. However, for a noon reservation, our food was not served to us until after 1 pm. Our waitress was friendly, but ignored us once she realized that our food was not coming... More

Enjoyed another meal at this restaurant, but this was our second return for their luncheon specials. We also go on a more regular basis for great dinners. We found the special luncheon menu-sandwiches for $5.00- was unbeatable !!!! Delicious, fresh and served with chips, etc.......just perfect for those on budget or not ! I will also mention the impeccable service... More

I have been to Firefly a couple of times now on the recommendation of a friend. We arrived at 7:15 on a Saturday and the place was packed. We were lucky enough to get seats at the bar or there would have been and hour plus wait. That tells you something about how popular the place has become. They have... More
