“Tasty food with a variety of preparations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

We've been to firefly 3 times with friends and have enjoyed it very much. On our last trip one of our friends had specific food requirements which the chef was very happy to prepare. Try it - Iwe think you'll like it!

“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

Service was great, food was okay. Rice pudding (dessert) was on a honey philo something, it was so hard and sticky, almost inedible. Maybe we just went on an "off" day.

“Amazing food and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
