Was here for dinner in a group of six. We sat at a round table in the bar area. It was so noisy we shouted out our conversations. It was impossible to hear what the person across the table was saying. Had the cod fish fry which was very good. The breading was very different and didn't take like it... More

I dined at this restaurant for the first time on Nov 7th and will definitely go back! The food was amazing, the drinks are unique and made well and they have tableside smores as a dessert option! You can roast your own marshmallows! This alone is worth checking out! My only suggestion is to request a dining room table if... More

My wife, son and I stopped here before going to the Bucks game and were very satisfied. The inside and the outside of the restaurant were very nice. We gave up our reservation to sit at the bar because it looked very comfortable, and they were very accommodating to our request. The service, atmosphere and food were very good!!! We... More

Living in Wauwatosa, we get to Firefly fairly often, and always eat at the bar. Menu always seems to have something that satisfies, especially when venturing into unknown culinary territory. Have always enjoyed the late evening vibe here as well.

My husband and I tried Firefly Urban Bar and grill a little over a month ago and loved it! I started with the most interesting and refreshing Pear Martini. We both choose a couple of small plates and none of them disappointed! We will go back. This would be a great place to take out of town guests!

A hidden little gem. I have been here for family meals, work parties and date night and have never been disappointed . They are also very good working with me and my daughters food allergies.

Me being a barfly (no disrespect to Mickey Rourke) diner, Firefly offer's a 40+ seat square shaped bar, ideal for tossin' one back, small plate munching, and patron viewing...yeah! Of course if more traditional seating arrangements and normal entrees are your fare, then this spot can satisfy you too...Intriguing wine list (Ghostwriter Pinot?); 25+ Vodkas and close to 100 brews,...

I came here with friends for drinks; I did not sample the food. The interior of Firefly is nicely appointed and the atmosphere was fine for an upscale restaurant/bar. The cocktail menu was underwhelming, certainly tailored to those who prefer sugar-infused drinks and martinis: the latter section of the menu read more like a child's trick-or-treat candy inventory than a...

We have stopped in at Firefly for drinks a few time before and have always had good service and experiences. We finally decided to check it out dinner. Overall it was a good dinner but I felt prices were a bit too high (lower end of upscale pricing) for the quality (average food). First - we had zero complaints about... More
