Hidden Gem in Wauwatosa

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... read more

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.

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

My husband and I stopped in for drinks and appetizers. We had the crab stack, cheese fondue and Dates Rumaki. I recommend the Dates!!! So good. Dates stuffed with Boursin cheese and wrapped in bacon. YUMMY!!!

Love this place for a bunch of reasons. First, it's in our neighborhood; second, there is a regular menu change; third, the "Crunch" salad is fantastic; and, finally, they take reservations (OpenTable).

Go to the back bar for the fun atmosphere. Good drinks and good food, but the menu hasn't really changed in years. I wish they would shake things up a bit and make locals excited about repeat visits.

Swanky decor. The food was alright (pork chops were lackluster) but the service was slow. Even with an empty bar and empty restaurant, drinks took a long time. Additionally, the waitress added gratuity to the bill and never informed us, seeming to try to sneak one past. Luckily we realized we should double check, and discovered the billing. Alright place...

Stopped in early for a Friday Fish Fry during lent. Service was very good; fish fry was average, garlic fries were good as was the cole slaw. A bit pricey for battered cod at $16; nice specialty drinks and dessert.

Despite some sketchy reviews, We visited Firefly last night for a Family Christmas outing. There were 8 of us and we reserved the cute private room off the bar area. Max our waiter was attentive and very nice. We had cocktails, appetizers and entrees and all were delicious. I look forward to going back especially to try out the outside... More
