Sunday brunch was great! Delicious food with a "Cajun" take on some dishes--so savory! Subtle, flavorful cocktails! Definitely a "destination" dining venue!
Brunch was great. Eggs Benedict and Greek omelette were superb
Excellent, as always. The Firefly is a “must do” restaurant in Downtown Manchester. Our overall favorite restaurant in NH!
Had a great meal on St. Patrick’s Day. Noise level a bit high, but it was very busy so that’s to be expected. Jennifer, our server was very good, professional and attentive.
very crowded (St.Patricks Day - not intentional on our part). Appetizer & dessert (and wine) were excellent - entree was good/average. Service was outstanding. Fun night - would definitely go back.
Cute place, and cozy atmosphere. I ordered the Filet mignon, and it was literally the worst steak Ive been served. I asked for medium rare, got well done, it was sent back (waitress seemed put out) came back 15 min later well after my friends were finished eating and was still a very dry,over cooked awful piece of meat.
Wow! What a find... totally booked this last minute based on good reviews on line. We drove from the Upper Valley in NH (1hour) and our friends drove from Newton MA in traffic (1 1/2 hours) to meet us so I was a little nervous. Pleasantly surprised to say the least with atmosphere, cuisine, and Jess... Jess is a gem!!! Only con is parking which is a challenge but it is most places you go in Manchester so no biggie. Will go again for sure!!!
Firefly is lunch option for us quite often especially for a larger group from our office. This visit was a birthday celebration so we went for Sunday brunch. What a tasty treat! Food was delicious and we weren't rushed out the door and were able to relax, catch up and have a nice time.
This has been a favorite for both me and my wife for five plus years! Always good food and pleasant atmosphere, with pleasant and assistive wait staff.
We had our usual fantastic dining experience. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. She catered to our every need. We also appreciated having our special booth reserved for us. Thank you!
It had been a long day of travel and we decided to eat at Firefly Bistro. I had been there before, however my daughter, who just returned from China, had not. She just wanted good American food. Firefly Bistro did not disappoint. We both got the filet mignon cooked medium rare. It was absolutely perfect. We also had the Go-Go Gorgonzola appetizer. It was to die for; it was so good. The hostess was incredibly accommodating. After a 20-hour day of traveling we requested a booth so that we could be comfortable. Even though the place was crowded, the hostess worked hard to find a booth for us. We had to wait a tiny bit but it was minimal. Our server was delightful. So, I couldn't say more positive things about this restaurant. Although it was my daughter's first time there, I've been there several times, even taking guests from other parts of the country. We have been very happy with the food and the service every single time. I highly recommend this restaurant.
We had a lovely time and will be back!
Always a great meal and service!
This was our first experience at Firefly's. Everything, from the soup (smoked seafood chowder) and salad (asparagus panzanella) through dessert was delicious. Great atmosphere and interesting menu choices.
Excellent food and service. We both had the smoked seafood chowder and it was heavenly. Lots of chunks of fish, shrimp, potatoes and carrots.
Kind of noisy -- a couple of large group tables who were celebrating.
I thought the bar area was a little loud. Everyone in my group except for myself loved the food. I had the fish and chips. The fish did not seem that fresh and the coating was way too heavy.
As always everything was great...
Food, Service, Atmosphere... AWESOME!!!
Incredibly noisy. There are absolutely no noise mitigating features on the brick walls. Whenever we come to Firefly, we try to dine early in order to have a shot at conversation. We had asked for a quiet seat and were told our reservation came in after they had set the reservation seating. We were offered a "take it or leave it" option to sit in an uncomfortable booth at the back of the bar or climb-to-dine seating (which we never choose) on the other side of the bar. The bar area itself was involved in a raucous birthday party that was in progress when we arrived and showed no sign of slowing down when we left. We were not offered seating in either of the dining rooms because those were allegedly all reserved. The hostess' attitude was appalling but Firefly is always busy so maybe they don't need to care. Since we had made a reservation, we didn't have a "Plan B" and settled for the uncomfortable booth in the back of the noisy bar area. There were several empty tables in the dining rooms when we came in and a few were empty when we left. So clearly, the hostess wasn't on her game.
Our waitress Amanda did everything in her power to make our dining experience a positive one; she was great. The food was great. The noise level and the way our reservation was handled by the hostess were very disappointing for a restaurant where high-dollar entrees populate the menu. We aren't likely to return any time soon, although this has been one of our "go-to" spots for years. There are plenty of spendy restaurants in Manchester that offer good food and good service with ambiance and customer service to match.
Fantastic food. Scallops cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere. Easy to reserve spot through Open Table.
Second time at Firefly, this time was brunch. It's quickly become a favorite place for us!
We visited Firefly with my mother for a late Valentines Day celebration. Firefly has a diverse menu with a nice selection of high end meals as well as several ‘ classic’ items. We chose a mixture of both and were not disappointed. The Steak Tips (a classic) were cooked medium rare as ordered and were tender and well seasoned. I had the grilled salmon. I would normally choose one of the more interesting options but the salmon was presented with two vegetables and no heavy sauces so met my desire for a lower calorie choice. All were well prepared. Overall, our food was quite good and the other meals I saw others eating left me wanting more. The wait staff was friendly but either they or the kitchen were understaffed as it did take longer than it should have for drinks, bread, and food to arrive. Not too bad though. I’ll try to come back!
The food was delicious, and the menu had extensive gluten free options. However, we sat at our table at 8:45, but didn’t get to put our drink and appetizer order in until 9:15, and the drinks didn’t come out until 9:30, appetizer at 9:45, and our meal until after 10. Our waitress was very nice, it just took way too long to even put our order in, and to get what we ordered. Perhaps it was short staffed that night? Not sure if we will be going back or not.
Relaxed dining over excellent food. Friendly staff.
Food menu , bar options, service and quality of food are all excellent. Wine list is good, could be a little better, but that's us. We're wine freaks. Would return again and again.....a trifle difficult to get there, as you have to deal w/downtown Manchester traffic, special events,etc and figure out how to get in there. Once done, however, it's for sure you'll love it.
This place was great. My wife and I went there for Valentine's day. The ambience was great, the staff was warm and professional, the menu was very creative, and the food was delicious. Definately the place to go for good food at a reasonable price for a special occasion.
Excellent service. Great food.. would definitely visit again..
Went to Firefly with my wife for Valentine's Day. Food was terrific, portions were great, and the drinks were excellent. Fairly expensive, but no more so than any other nice restaurant. I would definitely go again.
Wonderful atmosphere, great food, and excellent service. 5 stars in my book!
Fire fly is the best place for a special occasion. It’s a favorite for us. Always s great experience.
Our first time there and we were very pleased!! Great food, service was exceptional and drinks well made!!! Will definitely go back!!
Great restaurant, too many chocolate options on dessert menu, I was with someone who is allergic to chocolate. The food was great. Was disappointed when a local craft beer I chose was no longer available because ‘the chalkboard artist’ wasn’t available. We will definitely be back.
My wife and I were heading to Manchester area, and decided to do dinner too. We booked Firefly because the menu looked interesting - my wife has some food restrictions. We were seated as soon as we arrived -- good idea to have reservations because it was definitely full at 6:15 on a Saturday night.
The service was excellent -- and our server told us the food is all cooked to order, which meant even more options for my wife. She had the short rib over risotto, and I had a cajun pasta dish , swapping the fettuccine for bowtie pasta. Both dishes were excellent.
Cozy place, lots of old exposed brick and high ceilings. We'll be back!
steak was a bit over cooked but husband food was wonderful. Went out of their way to provide chocolate covered very large strawberries for dessert with sparking wine.. Loved it . wait staff very sensitive to timing. Will go again and again
This is our “umpteenth” time at The Firefly since our move to NH in the Spring of 2016. This restaurant is by far our favorite place to dine in Manchester. Everything is great, plus the atmosphere and wait staff are nothing short of awesome. We have NEVER been disappointed at The Firefly, whether is it just the two of us having Sunday brunch, our entire family from NH, TX and MA having a group vacation treat. In our opinion, you can’t go wrong at The Firefly!
Visited last Saturday with some local friends. Food selection and presentation was good. Service was very good! Overall it was worth our hour long drive to get there and would recommend it.
Excellent food. Good value. Server was friendly. Nice atmosphere inside, but wow does it get LOUD during brunch! I suspsect its because everyone is drunk on Bloody Marys and its a small place with a lot of seating. It was almost obnoxious. Couldnt have a conversation at our table without yelling. Next time we will try coming during dinner. We all really enjoyed our food and that alone will bring us back.
Great service, food, and drinks - as usual! I highly recommend Firefly if you get the chance. Fine dining, but comfortable, cozy, and affordable.
Excellent meal and awesome service. We had an amazing server who made wonderful suggestions. We loved the creative and extensive cocktail menu. Great find!
Great food. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Cozy atmosphere.
