  • "Holy cow! Went to Julian Serrano looking for Tapas and found it, but you have to pay 14$ ish for one order! So expensive. We ended up going to Firefly on Paradise which was also wonderful and fit our budget. The food was actually pretty fantastic. Scallops. Dates. Salad. Tomato basil soup. Sparkling sangria. Totally amazing!"

  • "Loved theb food chicken empanadas were my favorite followed by shrimp ceviche. Blood orange mojitos were perfect. My only gripe is i made this reservation over a week before arriving and our table was directly behind hostess station with a view of their backs and the opening and closing of the front door and people using rhe restroom. Not good planning on restaurant part considering i took the time to book a reservations. I would return because the food was fab"

  • "If you like to share and don't mind going just a little off the strip try Firefly. The food was excellent and the service quite good. Nice to get away from the crowds. The dates are to die for!"

  • "Forget the bad things that where all over the internet about this place. This restaurant serves honest tapas at a reasonable price."

  • "We went here with a group of 7 as part of a bachelorette weekend. We were given a large table in an alcove, so we almost had a private dining area, especially when we closed the curtains! (Were we supposed to close them? Maybe not. But they didn't seem to care?) We were one of the rowdier bunches in there, but the staff was great and took excellent care of us. It did take a little long for the first plates to come out, but our server saw that we were without food and checked on it immediately. Once the first plates came out, the rest followed very quickly. Everything was delicious, and seemed to come out of the kitchen as soon as it was ready, so it was hot and fresh at the table."

  • "I really enjoyed this place and the Sangria was amazing! The food was good and I would definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Food is awesome, small potions on some items, others not. The bacon wrapped figs were to die for and the ribs fell off the bone. Watermelon Mojito was great choice to go with food selection. Open until 2 am and at 1 the place was busy. Lots of large parties, couples and singles. Wait staff very attentive. Carlos our server rocked."

  • "This is my favorite restaurant to visit while in Vegas. I've referred fire fly to many different friends and no one has ever been disappointed. I only wish I had a fire fly in my home town. It would be my go to restaurant allll the time! I've never been disappointed!"

  • "Firefly grew too fast and their quality got away from them. NOW with one location, the food was wonderful; the service attentive; and the ambience more relaxed. The new location is larger and more open, with loads of tables and a bar where you can actually sit down and have a drink or dinner for one. .We highly recommend the bacon wrapped dates and the Serrano sliders (the pink in the filet slider is the Serrano ham). Wonderful experience for a casual dinner or pre-Smith Center show."

  • "Having lived in Spain for a couple of years, I seek out exceptional Spanish cuisine. Firefly is such a terrific find that I seek it out each time I am in Vegas. The stuffed dates and the pulpo asado are a must. The croquetas and albondigas are rich and flavorful. Firefly fries and patatas bravas are perfect complements to any dish. Buen provecho!"

  • "Frequent visitors, 1st time new location. 7:15 reservation, patio seating. Only two tables occupied, but took 15 minutes to seat us. Disorganized. Eventually led to the patio and told we could sit wherever we wanted. It was quite a few minutes before anyone appeared to wait on us. After that it got a little better. The food, as always, is well presented, and very delicious. Our favorites bacon-wrapped stuffed dates, tuna tartare, shrimp ceviche, tierra y mar skewers, and lamb chops. This time I had the Pisto, huge serving, delicious, but not quite as fancy as most of the fare. Had hoped to have scallops, too full after Pisto. Sorbet of the day excellent! Red Sangria, usually superb, was watery, but it was +100 degrees. Still great choice!"

  • "Mediocre food with fair to poor service. Everything on the menu looks good but most things fall short."

  • "I've loved going to FireFly for years, but have not been to Vegas in 2 years so was very surprised to find the new venue. Tho larger than the old site, I found the feel of the new location to be very much in keeping with the old location. Wonderfully, the new location, being larger, means the long long lines waiting to get in are less of an issue. The menu is as good as I recall... choices up and down for all tastes, including vegetarians, and those who avoid carbs. Still very loud. The restaurant could benefit from some noise dampening foam or cloth on the ceiling!"

  • "I loved this place so much that I came back two days later! The food is wonderful. Notables were stuffed dates, spicy shrimp, filet mignon, apple salad, and even the bread and butter! The service is good, and the ambiance is nice. Great for a date or lunch meeting. Go with lots of people so you can get more dishes to share. I've already recommended this place to friends. I wish they would open a restaurant in Los Angeles so that I could go more often."

  • "The menu at Firefly is deep enough that we ate here on consecutive nights yet only had one dish- the merguez- on both nights. We could go back again without duplicating, too. Some of the dishes are a bit conservative- I like my patatas bravas to have a bit more bravado, for instance. The wine list contains some offbeat choices, many available by the glass. Wine prices are quite reasonable. Firefly also understands the Spanish schedule- dinner at Midnight is no problem."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "My SO and I love this place. Lots of food choices, great drinks, and fantastic prices. Its always busy and a bit noisy, but that's to be expected. Came here on a hot, Las Vegas Monday night and was expecting it to be cool in the restaurant, but it was as hot, if not hotter than it was outside. Really made the meal unenjoyable. Hoping the a/c was just broken temporarily, because we do intend to go back, but not if its like that every time."

  • "We were very much impressed with Firefly. We ordered 4 tapas and the mixed tapas. The bacon wrapped dates are fabulous. The tortilla was like a Puerto Rican grandma would make. The patatas bra as were indeed spicy, but yummy. The salmon toasts were marvelous as well (so says my co-diner. I couldn't have due to gluten issues, something they don't specifically accommodate. There are plenty of things to choose from that are naturally without, though). If you ask, they will bring olives to your table. They are pitted, but some of the sweetest most delectable things I've eaten. The paella was on pointe and traditional, earning praise from my co-diner as authentic. Sangria was close, but missing a little something."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We were quickly seated & the waiter came right over, food came out quickly. Food was not great, however. For instance, the shrimp tapas were cold at the tails, which is a giveaway that the restaurant is microwaving the food."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Wife, daughter & I had dinner at Firefly on a Tuesday evening in June. Seated promptly with quick service. The dishes were 5 excellent and 1 just OK. The 2 desserts were both good. Service was paced well. The stuffed dates were the best of our 6 small plates."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "My cousin & I tried this restaurant thanks to a groupon and good reviews online. It didn't disappoint. We got a table outside and split a large pitcher of delicious sangria. The hardest part was picking 4 tapas to try out of the 60 - everything sounded so good. Our server gave us good recommendations and did a wonderful job of stopping by the table when we needed something but staying away so we could talk and enjoy the meal. Their men's restroom was under construction so men and women had to take turns using the women's restroom. That was a little annoying and there always seemed to be a line."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We always come here every time we are in Vegas. The new location on Paradise is much better than the old location which felt a little cramped. The selection of tapas is good, providing several options for anybody's preferences. Service is fast once you place your order and as always, the quality and flavors are fantastic. I can't say enough about the stuffed dates and shrimp a la diabla (hint: dip the bread in the sauce. They serve some of the best sangria I have ever had. If sangria is not for you, then you must try the berry infused vodka - you won't be disappointed."

  • "I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and will continue to go there every time I visit the Vegas area. I love that it is off the strip and easy to access. The prices are great and the food quality is excellent! We tried the lamb, filet, shrimp diablo, all of which were excellent. The garbanzo beans, stuffed dates and peppers are great too! Honestly you can't go wrong with anything! They also have a great wine list with Spanish, Argentine wines as well as American ones! The ambiance is very loud, but there is also outside and bar seating. It is a nice casual place to go get great food!"

  • "Every time I come here it's spectacular; the food, the service, the everything. I plan on visiting again and again. (Side note: get the stuffed dates. In a word AH-MAH-ZING)"

  • "I always go to Firefly when I'm in town. The empanadas and bacon wrapped dates are my 2 top choices. This place NEVER disappoints."

  • "Had a groupon to use here. I ended up getting 4 tapas- 2 shrimp and 2 beef, chorizo, and shrimp. They were good, but wish I would've tried four different tapas. Nice environment."

  • "Aside from the half naked customers which was a slight distraction, this was a good dining experience. Food was very good, service was very good. Prices were reasonable."

  • "We took a decent sized group here for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was fun if that makes sense. We ordered many different small plates and enjoyed the culinary experience of all the different tastes and smells. The sangria kept coming and the service was outstanding. Great place that I recommend to those who like to try many different food items."

  • "Friends & I have dined there 4 times and it has been great every time. I will go there again when in Las Vegas."

  • "I went to Firefly with a friend from out of town. We are both foodies and enjoy little bites of several different things, so this was perfect for us. The sangria was delicious and reasonably priced. Must try the bacon wrapped dates!"

  • "My lady and I like to go to Firefly before going to Smith Center. It is close to us and the food is always excellent. We went again this past Saturday. The only drawback was that the service seemed awfully fast. Normally the wait staff takes their time in bringing the plates out. However, the plates came out literally as we finished the previous plates not even giving us a chance to enjoy the taste and digest the food. Hopefully this recent experience will be an exception and not the rule."

  • "Used Trip Advisor to find Firefly Tapas and found the reviews to be accurate. The restaurant offers an extensive list of options and all that we tried were very good. The wait staff was very helpful and attentive. All in all, a very good meal."

  • "We came with a group of 6 for an early dinner and a few drinks before a show and it was great! Would definitely recommend it. Great food and great price."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "This was the first time that I ate at Firefly. We were able to be seated right away. The waiter was very good, and he was able to provide very good recommendations for some of the plates. I ate the lamp chops, veggie empanadas, and albondigas, which were excellent. The person I was dining with had the spicy beef salad, but unfortunately, due to a food allergy, she was not able to have the orange-soy sauce. Due to her also having the seafood ceviche, it is unknown if this, in combination with the substituted sauce for the spicy beef salad, caused her to have too much acid at one time. Otherwise, we had a delightful time, and will definitely consider returning when I am in Las Vegas."

  • "Heard about this place a few years ago when watching a TLC program on dining in Las Vegas. Made a point to check it out this time. Small plates allowed us to take the agony out of making a decision what to order. Tomato bread with serrano ham and bacarones were superb. So were the other plates that we ordered. We stayed in Las Vegas for a week and ended up going twice there. "

  • "I cannot say enough good things about this place. You need to go experience it for yourself. Order several different small plates-don't worry, everything is very reasonably priced. on all the delicious varieties they have to offer. The waiter was kind enough to guide us through the menu. We were not disappointed! I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. "

  • "We take everyone to this place when they come to town. We always go during happy hour and enjoy the 1/2 price mojitos. These are a great way to kick the night off if you don't plan on driving. "

  • "It was an amazing experience with good service and a nice ambience. We went to Firefly around lunchtime and got several tapas: albondigas, bacon-wrapped dates, steak and mushroom skewers, and a chicken empanada. I highly suggest trying the bacon-wrapped dates that are stuffed with smoked almonds and sprinkled with bleu cheese, as well as the chicken empanada. We also got a dessert platter with a good variety of sweets, I really suggest trying their flan and the chocolate tres leches cake. We will definitely come again, it was a great experience!"
