    Flavorful and good, and it was nice to be able to order each individual part of my meal. The warm spinach salad was particularly good, and so was the tuna on a skewer with mango. The only disappointment was the wine, not memorable, whch is a little odd because there are many spanish wines that are quite good.

    I've been to the other two Firefly locations and have always had great food but this location left much to be desired. We didn't eat more than a few bites of each plate because it was difficult to stomach. The chicken empanadas had a sauce on them that tasted like sour cream gone bad. The chicken skewers were covered in over cooked veggies and something that tasted like alfredo sauce (gross.) The french fries tasted like old grease and to top it all off I had recommended this place to my sis and friend in town and they were so disappointed - made me look like I have no taste. I would never go back here and probably not visit the other locations either. I also heard that this location was on Bar Rescue, if that isn't a red flag too.

    After making my third trip to Firefly I can report that there isn't anything I've tried that wasn't delicious. The bacon wrapped dates are not to be missed, and the apple and Manchego salad was simple but fantastic. Good wine list and service too. This place is definitely going to merit many return trips.

  • The first time we tired Firefly

    Dined on 3/15/2014
    The first time we tired Firefly it was because it was in our new neighborhood. The food was great, they modified a couple of things due to a food allergy. The service is good but a bit slow, so sit back and enjoy your drink and company. We went back with friends about two weeks later and enjoyed it again. Love this place.

    Out of the 6 tapas we ordered, I found 3 of them too greasy. They were fried foods, however, I've had the same in other places and did not have that nauseating greasy feeling after. The other foods we ordered were OK. Would still come back, interesting menu but will stay away from the fried items. The 3 fried items we had...calamari, tempura and empanada.

    I am a big fan of this place. The food is fantastic, great drinks and the atmosphere is really cool. My only complaint is the service is sporadic. When we arrived, the server was right there, but as the night progressed, it was harder to get things. At one point, my friend started coughing really bad and needed some water, but we couldn't get anyone. There was even a manager standing less than 10ft away and she did nothing.

    We asked about a wine with a grape we had never had before. The young waiter indicated he would check to see what the wine was about, since he had not personally tried it. He actually searched the wine on Google and came back with an abundance of details about the wine and we shared it with him. His name is Dustin, a phenomenal waiter for Firefly. The wine if you are interested was a blend of mouvedre and cabernet sauvignon, Spanish, yummy, fruit forward, bold. It was a 2009 El Nido Jumilla Clio.

    We went here for Valentines Day because it was the only place with open reservations. To our surprise, this was the best choice. The tapas were delicious. We had the chorizo with chicken stuffed mushroom, the skewers, the salad, and a seafood paella. I have tried homemade Spanish paella and this one did not disappoint me at all. Everything was delicious! The servers are very busy but very attentive and always checking up on you. Excellent service and overall experience. I look forward to going again soon! It is a delicious and affordable choice for any occasion really.

  • Overpriced Wine-Hit or Miss Service

    Dined on 1/2/2014
    Just know going into it that you can get the same bottle of wine for less than 1/3 the price (i.e. $68 bottle there, $19 at the wine store down the street). They know this and readily admit that their markup on wine is more than 300%. The service is hit or miss. I've had great service but I've also been seated outside and sat for 30 minutes before I went inside to get someone to attend to us.

    The menu for Tapas here is extensive and the selection of items definitely have the ingredients and flavor of true Spanish Tapas...things like Manchego cheese, bouquerones, octopus.....There is however a section for everything so you can have meat, fish or vegetable Tapas, making this a great place to take a group with varying tastes and dietary habits. I have been here several times and never had anything I did not like. Dishes are well prepared, expertly seasoned and well presented.

    We were seated promptly even though we were about ten minutes late for our reservation. The wait staff was very nice and took our order quickly. The first round of tapas was a little slow coming out, but soon after everything arrived quickly and we had a great rhythm of finishing a plate just as the next one was set at the table. The food was fantastic, especially the famous bacon-wrapped dates and the manchengo mac n cheese. Our waiter Alfredo made sure to come by to see if we wanted anything else before Happy Hour ended. My boyfriend mentioned I was a birthday girl (not prompted by me) and they ended our night there with a complimentary flan. It was all around a great night and I look forward to going there again soon!

    We were warmly welcomed, and our first experience at Firefly brightened from there. Our server appeared almost immediately with a deliscious bread basket and set the stage for a great dining experience. These folks really know how it's done! Our group selected multiple tapas and found them all exceptionally flavorfull. The standouts were the babyback ribs, Patatas Bravas, Albondigas, Camarones A La Diabla and Petite Filet. We selected the Red Spartkling Sangria, which was excellent. First-timers shouldn't be intimidated by the menu item titles---the desciptions are detailed, making selection quite easy. Service was warm and professional, food and drink excellent and the price reasonable. We are looking forward to our next Firefly visit.

    Everything was excellent. I happened to mention that I'm allergic to mushrooms, and when we ordered something that didn't say it had mushrooms in it, our waiter remembered and pointed this out to us. He also made great recommendations. The food was delicious, the service was spot on, and the prices were fair. Highly recommended!

    By far, this was the best restaurant experience I have had in Las Vegas. The food was nothing short of spectacular. There was not a bite I did not ooh and ahh over, nor a drop left on my plate. I was with a large group so we were quite a lot to handle; the waiter was phenomenal. I cannot say enough good things about my experience.
