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

The location is great -- right at the end of the shopping strip on 24th street in Noe Valley. The dining room is rustic chic; not pretentious, but neutral tones, dim lighting, and comfortable. Significantly overpriced in the end. I say that because it wasn't cheap, and I don't remember much about the meal, apart from an unoriginal kale salad.... More

This place has been in business for 20 years - and there's a reason it's still going strong. The menu is as diverse as the City itself - and there are usually one or two fish entrees and one or two vegetarian entrees also. The appetizers are excellent, although my personal favorites are the pot stickers with wonderful flavors of... More

This is a very nice, small restaraunt that serves food that is definitely not your run of the mill with vegetarian options and more healthy options. The brussel sprouts were ver good and I enjoyed my fish very much. It has a relaxed, intimate atmosphere and the wait staff was very riendly and attentive. While the meals were good they... More

The service is relaxed and friendly, the food incredible and the atmosphere is warm and intimate. We shared several appetizers for our group of seven; it was easy to explain what we wanted and get help in determining how much we would need for the table. The main courses were just as good, including vegetarian options. Again dessert was shared.... More

The food at Firefly is really good, but the low key nature of the place, its neighborhood feel and it's comfort approach to food makes it very different from the hundreds of hipster restaurants in the city. We were seated at our reservation time (a decided rarity in the city) and immediately supplied menus and delicious warm bread accompanied by... More
