Defying all expectations, this is really good food near an airport and located in a hotel--The Westin. One of our house guests said that the fried chicken was, "...the best she ever had.” Another said, "Don't miss out on the Shrimp and Sea Scallop Potstickers with Sesame Soy Dipping Sauce.” My wife and I try to go there, when they...

We were a pretty diverse group of vegetarians, carnivores, ages and nationalities looking for dinner at a location that would suit everyone and allow for conversation. This was well chosen. Firefly had great service, a diverse innovative menu and was really nice for conversation. The rooms are the right size. The spread with the bread was very fun and the... More

The appetizer Brussell sprouts are to die for. I then had a divine piece of sea trout encrusted almonds and my friend had a fried chicken that was moist and delicious. Topped off with a cheesecake and blueberry compote that was delectable. Good wine list at fairly reasonable prices And the ambience is, well, comfy. Very good dining experience.

Wonderful dinner for our final night in San Francisco. Delicious. Will definitely tell any friends who are travelling from Tasmania, Australia to San Francisco to put on their list to eat here. Loved the atmosphere and service too. Thank you.

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!
