This place has excellent food!!! Its tucked away on the Dana Hotel property, so it feels more secluded and luxurious.

My wife, daughter and I went to the Firefly on May 4, 2013 for our anniversary and had an amazing time! The food was incredible. Our server(sorry can't recall her name) was friendly , attentive and menu knowledgeable. I had the 8 oz. filet mignon and my wife had the sea bass and we both had the wild mushroom risotto. The food was expertly prepared and delivered in a timely manner. We had the creme brulee and the panna cotta for dessert and were both amazing. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. Our total bill including 3 drinks was $129! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in the Mission Bay/ Sea World area!

Great resort restaurant
Often the restaurant at a hotel or resort relies on its captive guests in order to slide with mediocre food or service. The Firefly has great food and a topnotch wait staff. Highly recommended for both brunch, lunch and dinner.

Pool Side Lunch Dining
Dinner at the Firefly was absolutely EXCELLENT !!!! LUNCH POOLSIDE.....NOT SO MUCH.
Food served in "boxes"???? Please use paper plates or at least the plastic covered food size containers which would hold a decent
sized salad. Lunch food quality and presentation needs to be improved.
This is a five star restaurant "if" the lunch menu and presentation can be upgraded.

This was a nice surprise.
This was a nice surprise. This place is very small on the inside, if you're going you need to sit outside to enjoy it. Inside its mostly a bar with about 10 tables, with much more room outside with heaters and some "fire tables". Dont let "bar" scare you, great menu, service was very good, food was also very good with generous portions... I didnt get any of the main dishes but ordered several appetizers and could not finish (thats saying something). Gorganzola Au Gratin was excellent!

Nice place to eat outdoors
We ate outside on a beautiful summer night and had a view of the pool, with the marina off in the distance. The menu was not very extensive, but seemed to have a little of everything. One thing I found slightly annoying was that some prices on the menu were a little higher than displayed on their website. We had salads for starters which were well assembled and decent size, but the dressings could have been a little tangier. The entrees were very tasty and well presented and the portion sizes were adequate although the accompanying vegetable was pretty meager. Three of us had seafood and one had steak. All of us were pleased with our entrees. The desserts were very good. Our waiter was pleasant and the service was adequate.

Great food and patio dining!
We had a wonderful experience at the Firefly. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu - she knew how the food was prepared and how it could be altered to deal with food allergies. She was also very friendly and accommodating. We sat outside near the firepit, and it was lovely. Food was excellent( had the short ribs and fish) and wine recommendation was perfect. We will be back!

Nice Bayside Dining
We had a pleasant dining experience at the Firefly. The setting, with outdoor dining overlooking the marina, is very nice. The service was fast and accommodating. The food was good, not spectacular. Our only complaint would be that the cappuccino seemed watered-down.

Firefly First Time Experience
Overall everything was very good to excellent. Atmosphere, food, service, etc. The only "minor" thing that bothered us somewhat was the noise level. When we first arrived it was very noisy. After a while either we got used to it or it just settled down a little when a group that we noticed left.
