We always enjoy a meal here. The food and service are very good. The ambiance is casual and comfortable. Conversation is not difficult. It feels like a neighborhood kind of place.

Was treated to dinner in Noe Valley and enjoyed the ambience and food. We ordered the daikon radish cakes for appetizer, fried Mary's chicken and rockfish , shrimp and clam with watercress. The fried chicken is really tasty. It comes with mashed potato with gravy, coleslaw and a biscuit.

We came all the way from Scotland and my cousin took us to this restaurant. Absolutely fabulous. Loved the food, the ambience and everything about it. If back in SF we will definitely go back to it .

Firefly has been around for a few decades. It's in a beautiful neighborhood in Noe valley. The service is wonderful and the food is fresh and well thought out. The cuisine ranges from comfort food to seasonal to ethnic curries. A little for everyone I think. Desserts are always my favorite. Must order a few!!

I was very disappointed in my visit to Firefly. I had been there several years ago and really enjoyed it but this time my meal was mediocre at best. the "chicken livers" were actually a chicken liver paste/pate like thing which had almost no flavor of the livers. The tortillas in the enchilada were chewy and over cooked at the... More

A lovely spot in Noe Valley that we have been going to for many years. Went there last evening and was not disappointed. Such attention to detail, passion for each element of the meal. Lots of creative vegetable centric dishes. small menu, carefully crafted. excellent wine selections. Not a budget spot though. Very attentive service
