“Amazing food and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

This is a local spot, where you will find comfort food that is seasonal as well as a cozy and intimate atmosphere for a great meal. It is is a residential neighborhood (Noe Valley), and parking may be an issue (hello - this is SF), and reservations are recommended unless you are like me and choose the bar seating. I was impressed with the service, including how they perfectly timed our dishes. Everything from appetizer, to main and dessert were amazing. I want to go back for their Fried Chicken Night on Tuesdays. I also liked their wine list which had a good amount of reasonably priced bottles.

how they have lavender soap in bathroom too.

“Best Restaurant in San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Great food, great service. Always a unique menu and the Sunday through Thursday Prix Fixe menu is a great deal. We lived in the neighborhood for several years and went here a lot.

“Delicious food, great presentation and terrific service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

As we entered the aroma surrounded us and pushed my hunger to the next level. Its a very small seating area, so make reservations, we also sat European style; which isn't for everyone but was good for us.
I recommend the brussel sprout appetizer; sprouts topped with truffle oil and parmesan cheese. I will add that portions are smaller than I expected.

“Favorite restaurant in San Fran!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

So many great restaurants in San Francisco, but the one I will always return to is Firefly. The food was amazing and the service impeccable. I love the atmosphere of this place. Lively and energetic. Everyone in the restaurant seemed to be having a great time and enjoying the food. So far I've recommended this place to two other friends who were visiting San Francisco and they both raved about the place.

I'll be back!!
