Went to this close-in neighborhood to visit old friends and walked to this neighborhood favorite. Reservations a must even on an early Monday night. I liked the menu and loved the salads and entrees I tried: very fresh ingredients, well prepared. I had a vegetarian dish of miso eggplant with brown rice, long beans and pardon peppers--could have been ordinary... More

I've been to Firefly twice, most recently in February 2014, with a friend who lives in Noe. It's one of his favorites, and I know why! As with the previous visit, the food was excellent and so was the service. A very good value for SF, I think. And they even gave us a loaf of bread to take home... More

Being from the South where great fried chicken abounds, I was surprised to find this on the menu in San Fran. We were all duly impressed with the crispy succulent chicken and wonderful mashed potatoes. The biscuits were Southern worthy also. Definitely need to come back!

We dined at Firefly at the recommendation of a Noe Valley restaurant that was too crowded to seat us. It is just at the border of the Noe Valley and Castro neighborhoods. Their dining room was equally crowded but the host shuffled some folks at the bar and managed to seat the 3 of us there. My girlfriend and I... More

I love Firefly, but as some of the reviewers have mentioned, they occasionally have an off night and you walk away a little disappointed. First off, Tuesdays is usually fried chicken day (standard American fare --- potatoes, gravy, biscuit with honey)....I have had it three times in the past 7 months (including my most recent visit last Sunday...yes, it was...

This is in noe valley/castro area so bit of a trek as we live in downtown SF but well worth it. The appetizers and entrees were excellent. the fish dishes were done to perfection. The shrimp and sea scallop post stickers are a staple and a must have. The trout was excellent and so was artic char.

What a delightful restaurant with an eclectic blend of menu choices. My local friends brought me here, and I was not disappointed. Started the meal with a French aperitif wine: Lillet. Then shrimp and sea scallop potstickers that were melt in your mouth delicious. The baby gem salad looked delicious and fresh. My friend let me sample a bite from... More

Had a lovely dinner in SF last week at this query, fun restaurant. The staff is great. The shrimp and sea scallop potstickers appetizer was amazing and loved the English pea pancakes as well. The Trout with coconut creamed corn put me over the top.

Fabulous neighborhood gem, great food, great staff, nice relaxing atmosphere. Not touristy at all. Love the lamb meatballs, pork shoulder and fried chicken..the vegetarian pancakes are delish. I always go when I am in town. Plenty of parking too..

I had the trout with spinach and coconut corn and it was amazing. My husband had the steak with potatoes and asparagus and it was very good as well. We sat at the bar and the bartender was very friendly and other waitstaff visited with us as well. I would eat here again and try dessert next time. This place... More
