    This is a great spot to have a romantic date night with your girl. The staff was very friendly, they have very good choice of tapas and wines. You must try to get a table at the terrace, specially if they are having live music that night.

    This restaurant accommodated our group of 7 and satisfied both vegetarians and meat eaters. There was not a single item ordered we did not enjoy. The food was flavorful, unique and exciting! The red Sangria tasted good but there wasn't much brandy in it.

    Overall, it was a solid Good. The atmosphere was quite energetic (Sat night); service was good (though I don't know why we had to wait when we had a reservation and lots of noticeably open tables, including the one we were sat at). Menu variety is fun and diverse, with very reasonably priced. Apple and Manchego salad was good and refreshing; the beef filet salad was tender and well composed. The patatas bravas were interesting-the sauce was like that of sauced buffalo wings (I know, weird, right?). The scallops were perfectly cooked, tho the puree and buerre blanc it was served on weren't quite right... the buerre blanc was chunky and thicker than I would've expected and the puree was just ok... All that said, food was good. And very loud.

    You cannot beat Firefly for tapas. Even if you do not like sharing, you will enjoy the food. Of course, sharing is the best idea. I try to go to Firefly every time I am in Vegas. I have taken numerous friends and everyone loves it, foodies and not.

    The food was excellent except the grilled octopus, but it may be just me... flavor was not to my liking. Pork Empanada is to die for. Table next to us had some kids that were swearing so loud it became obnoxiously ridiculous and they even threatened to walk on their tab. But that is my experience... it's such a great place otherwise.

    Firefly is super busy and popular with Party Busses and Limos. We saw three of them whilst dining on a Saturday night. Food is not authentic Spanish tapas, but tapas sized portions of all sorts of foods. Grilled peppers were great! Chicken salad with endives was decent... The endives were very fresh. Chicken tinga empanada was good but too expensive ($6.50 for one empanada). Baby back ribs were a waste of $10. Four tough ribs doused in sauce. We each took a small bite and realized it was awful.

    Nothing too special. Somewhat awkward table configuration considering the focus is tapas and sharing. The restaurant is way too dark. One item I ordered was the ribeye...great quality of meat, but it was very salty and over sauced. The lamb sausage was excellent. We ordered about 8 other tapas and they were good, just not great. It was our first visit and Firefly didn't live up to its reputation. It was my daughter's 18th birthday dinner, so a special night. Unfortunately, the food didn't match the occasion...at least that night it didn't. Not sure if I'd go back.

    ambiance was great, i did not like our seat, i always get great seats with open table -- not this time, the service made up for that, our waiter alejandro was very nice and attentive, not annoying, i had never have tapas nor had any idea what it was. the food was perfectly portioned, i was able to taste a few without overeating, the pitcher of sangria was enough for four or more (there was only me and my husband, my son is onyl 16) so good! we love the calamari, the clams in chorizo, steamed mussels, of course the bacon wrapped dates! the butter and bread were yummy, not to miss the firefly fish stick! definitely told my friends and cant wait to go back!

    My business associate and I came in for a quick lunch and we were a little worried we weren't going to get in and out on time. It was nice and quiet so we could discuss our upcoming meeting and the array of different little plates were perfect. We had just enough to share and ordered a variety of different plates and all were delicious.

    We found Firefly to be nicely buzzy on a Tuesday evening, even though we were on time for our 8 Pm reservation, we had a pleasant 15 minute wait at the bar. While this is basically a tapas menu, we went for the paella. At checking, we were warned of a 40 minute wait for the paella preparation. We order before the bar wait, and like what we got. We enjoyed several tapas dishes during the wait...all very good. Service was great. Paella was a tad over cooked and, therefore, on the dry side. A god experience

    I was looking for a lunch venue outside my hotel for one outing while in Las Vegas. While the "small plates" were pretty large and I found that I had ordered more than I could eat (three different dishes), the food was good. I had the tomato bread with manchego cheese and serrao ham, artichoke toasts and pork or beef empanadas. There were a number of other choices that sounded tempting including stuffed dates, mushroom tart, and caramel flan for dessert. My cab driver mentioned that it was a hot spot in the evenings on the weekend.

    The tapas here are amazing! Had the stuffed dates (OMG they were delicious!), ham and cheese croquettas (very tasty), tierra y mar skewers (chorizo, shrimp, and filet mignon skewers with a salsa verde sauce... great combination of flavors), and the chocolate and cherry bread pudding (yummy end to a fantastic meal). Two thumbs up, I will definitely be back!

    The most delicious paella and tapas in town! I´ve been to other spanish restaurants in Vegas, but none like this. Outstanding and corteous service. Quick tip: Order your paella the moment you sit as it will take 30ish mins; while you wait, just order a sangria pitcher with some tapas.

    The service was just Ok with the exception of the busser. He was great! The host is not so great either. I have been there a hanful of times but this host has seated us twice. She comes accross as being rude and self absorbed. The first time I attempted to intitaite conversation and she appreared to not be interested. She definitely needs to have a more upbeat and positive attitude. The second time I saw her I didnt even acknowledge her but she acted just the same.

    Firefly has an extensive and creative tapas menu. The wine list is very nice and well priced. Be forewarned, the tapas are not as small as you might find in a typical tapas restaurant, closer to starter size. With lists for cold, hot, seafood, etc. it is very difficult to keep your selection under control!

    We love the Firefly. A quick jaunt off the strip. We were here last month, and make it a destination every time we are in LV. We especially love being able to order little plates one at a time, rather than placing a large order. Dishes come out quickly. There are so many dishes to choose from, you can always find just the right thing to suit your palate. Sharing is the best! The inside is noisy, misted outside is great, even in 110 degrees! Has been a little disorganization since moving to the new place, but still a top choice not to be missed in LV.

    Every time we come to Vegas we try and hit up the Firefly. I've been to both locations - the Paradise road one is the best. There were 5 of us eating and we were seated promptly and courteously by the hostess. Our waiter was great - attentive, with good recommendations. We ordered ordered about 12-14 dishes and not a single one disappointed. I especially liked the scallops and the bacon wrapped dates. My dinner mates really liked the paella as well, although I did not try this myself. I also must comment on how reasonably priced this restaurant is - $120 for 5 people? Not many restaurants in Vegas this good in this price range! In all, there is really nothing but great things to say about this place. I would highly recommend it.

    Was very hesitant to eat here again after all their issues they've had. Even though the food still tasted good, there were a lot of issues they need to work on. We were welcomed to our table by plates being dropped and broken pieces flying at us, but received no apology. The service continued to be sub-par throughout the evening.

    The food and drinks were good enough. The Sangria is tasty but dangerous! Sneaks up on you fast! The place was super loud so don't go here for a romantic date! The worst thing though was that we sat for a good 15 minutes before anyone came to our table and when someone did, it was the bus boy and not our server! The table next to us ended up leaving because the server was taking too long. As someone who works in the industry, it's completely unacceptable for it to take 20 minutes just to get water and place our order.
