Firefly American Bistro
Great Experience!We dined here for a birthday celebration and everything was perfect! We arrived a few minutes later than our reservation time but our table was ready. The restaurant is elegant without being pretentious. Our waitress, Laurel was so nice and attentive to our table. The menu has plenty of variety, and the drink menu is huge! Our drinks and food came fairly quick. I ordered the Eggplant Napolean and it was delish! The portion size is generous but doesnt make you feel gross after like some places. I will definitely be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!My husband and I had a reservation at 6:30 on a Saturday night. The restaurant was packed, and I was concerned that we might have to wait for awhile. However, we were shown right to the corner table in the bar. It is actually the best table in the place! Our meals were very good. I had the scallops, and my husband had the tuna. The blood-orange cosmo was excellent. We had the carrot cake for dessert. The only complaint we had was that we were charged $1.00 for extra garlic toast we needed to finish the gorgonzola cheese that is served as the "Go-Go Bread" appetizer. Considering the waitress asked if we needed more bread to finish up the cheese, but didn't mention the upcharge, we felt it was a bit deceitful.
We will definitely return!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Experience!We chose Firefly for dinner before seeing a show at the Palace. We were first time diners and were very pleased with the food, the service and the atmosphere. We will be back for sure!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary specialHad a wonderful dinner for our 24th anniversary! As always the food was excellent, wait staff friendly and attentitive as always.

to the menu...4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, service outstandingThe food was great - everyone was friendly. We arrived a little early for our reservation and were seated right away. Our waiter, Nick, was awesome! He asked if we had any special needs - I told him we were there for my daughter's birthday dinner (she hadn't arrived yet). He asked what her preferences were - I said "chocolate!" That was all that needed to be said. At the end of our meal without another word, he brought out a delicious piece chocolate cake with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the plate - with a lit candle in it, too!The food was great - upscale comfort food.Great first experience! I would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back and trying the Crabcakes and the Baked Brie apps!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here for an office party,Went here for an office party, had a wonderful time.

I had read a review and my wife and I decided to give it a try. We were in the city to visit the Currier and do some shopping. We live in Keene. It was terrific and we will certainly return.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGet the go-go bread! It wasGet the go-go bread! It was absolutely amazing. My boyfriend's steak tips were so flavorful, and my fish and chips were to die for! Only problem is that we felt overdressed. We were told that the dress was "business casual." Yet the manager and most of the customers were wearing jeans!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and nice atmosphere.Great service and nice atmosphere. A very diverse menu. The Chicken cordon bleu soup is a must, so rich and full of flavor. Do yourself a favor and get a bowl, a cup will leave you wanting more.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI made this reservation veryI made this reservation very last minute and was happy to see that they showed up under Open Table restaurants. I used this as well when I visited my son in South Carolina in February of this year and went to Fleets Landing. Our waitress was extremely accomodating, patient and pleasant. We were not rushed and I cannot express again our satisfaction with the patience of our waitress. I will be taking my son here when he comes home on leave in December and my daughter and I are coming back for dinner. Thanks again for a great holiday.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Sunday with extendedEaster Sunday with extended family. Party of five. First time visitors. Very positive experience all the way around.

Food and wait staff excellent.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary Date NightThe drinks were amazing especially the wild berry mojito, The waitress was extremely nice. I forget her name but she was a tall blonde if you get her you have no worries. The food was top notch and i am a personal chef so i know good upscale food. I got the braised lamb shank and my fiance got the bacon wrapped steak with whiskey BBQ sauce, both were very good. Then I got the chocolate chip cookie sundae which was amazing and my fiancee got the Madagascar vanilla bean creme brulee, which wasnt set as much as se would have liked but she said the flavor was there. All in all we will return to the Firefly Bistro again3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFABULOUS!It's a guessing game when you pick places online but Firefly was one of my best "blind" dining experiences! I've already suggested it to friends and will visit again. Truly great food, great service & great atmosphere!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat well rounded offeringGreat well rounded offering on the menu. Nice app selection. Drinks were well prepared and ample in size. Something for evey taste from surf to turf to veggi, to glutin free, Even a Thai piece. Service was attentive, always around but not too close. A little noisy but not unbearable. A very nice restoration of an old downtown building. The place was packed at 6:30 when we arrived (our table was ready)and just as busy when we left at 9:00. We'll be back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, great food andAs always, great food and great drinks.

I recommend making reservations a head of time.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
