Firefly American Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Probably eaten here six or seven times, but was so disappointed this most recent. Can typically depend on welcoming staff, consistent food and great ambiance. This visit though, the food was bland and service distracted. We'll be back because of past experience, but hope this was a one off.
My wife and I have dined here before and the food and the service is always consistent.
We had Ruby for a waitress and she is really a true gem. Very personable and always checked
by the table to make sure everything was perfect.
I ordered Duck Breast for the first time there and it was done perfectly. We recently traveled in France where Duck is a very common menu item and Firefly hit it out of the park. My new "go to"
place next time I want Duck. My wife had the Haddock stuffed with Lobster. Superb.
The Martinis were perfect too. Thanks again Ruby and Firefly for making our Anniversary Dinner perfect.
Great place. Filet was a little overcooked, but still delicious. Cheesecake was bland. Why?
Service top notch and very attentive. It was like having your own private server. A little pricey, but definitely a place to go for high quality food in a warm, friendly environment.
It’s my favorite restaurant. Everything was great except for our server. She never actually greeted us. She kept leaving us waiting for a long time. No apologies given. She had a pleasant attitude just seemed as if we were bothering her. Odd because I have always had great experiences here. It was my date’s first time and I was a little embarrassed that I recommended it.
Brought my mother-in-law here for her birthday; she doesn't usually 'venture out' of her typical restaurants or her own food taste, so I was so pleased when she raved about her chicken dish. We bring many of our friends and family to Firefly and every time you never disappoint.
Enjoyed a father daughter dinner. Accommodated a a self selected surf and turf combo of steam and sautéed scallops. Yum. Suggest you save room for dessert. Shared 2 desserts: lava cake (hot inside chocolate) and chocolate mousse both with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!!!
Food was great and the service was excellent. They sat us at a table in the corner of the bar which should not be used as a table. I felt like I was in a "time out". That table should be a high top otherwise it is too dark and claustrophobic. We will go back but I will make sure not to get that "time out table".
The atmosphere was wonderful and the staff was super friendly. My wife and I don't go out often so the great service made this treat even more special. The Go-Go bread was a great start to the meal, and the generous pour from the bar made the drinks well worth the price. Our entrees were cooked perfectly, ample sized, and frankly, delicious. Topped off with dessert for good measure. We will definitely be back, thanks for a great "date"night!
