Good Food, Very Good Service, Fair Value

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... read 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

Our non-profit hosted a Halloween Party at Firefly today. It was a big mistake. The waitstaff never smiled, and seemed unhappy to be working on a Sunday or maybe unhappy that they were serving our diverse group. It was hard to tell. The waiter was seen rolling his eyes at a request I made (which he denied). The "manager" was... More

I have enjoyed Firefly several times in the past 2 years, most recently with my husband on a Friday evening. Each time I have sat in the bar area, which is my preference, and it has a warm, active, darker comfortable Urban feel, and has a collection of high top and round tables. They also have a couple different dining/seating... More

We recently visited Firefly with friends of ours who had never been there and who travel/dine extensively for business across the country and internationally. It was our choice of locations this time around and since we have had outstanding experiences here before, it was an easy choice. Our group ate in the bar area at a surrounding table and the...
