    Everything was excellent. We came to firefly to celebrate my birthday. We had the Kobe beef bruschetta as an app, amazing. I had the pepper crusted filet and my honey had the regular filet both were cooked to perfection! Reshawn was our server, he had excellent knowledge of the menu and we never needed for anything. He was always two steps ahead. Couldn’t ask for a better night!

    Service was wonderful and with a smile. Everything from the appetizer to entrees came out quicker than expected. Drinks were amazing (Green Tea/Lemon Drop). Also our water glasses never even got half empty before being replenished. A+ & 5/5 stars from myself & my girlfriend.

    Absolutely amazing!!! The food was a 10/10! We tried the stuffed filet and ribeye and they were so delicious! The filet was the most tender filet I have ever had. I actually just reheated my leftovers and it’s still as tender and delicious as it was last night. We also had the caesar salad and sushi that were delicious as well. Along with the three different spreads that are served with bread. I read previous reviews about the service being poor or slow, but we had a wonderful experience. I could see where someone might complain about the service being slow, but I appreciated how our appetizers, bread, and meal were spaced out so we had time to enjoy each. Also, every time I saw an employee they were doing their job. I never saw a single employee standing around twiddling their thumbs. Very impressed!

    Starting with bread and butter from the beginning… outstanding. There was 6 in are party. All but myself had steaks and all were cooked perfectly. The appetizers consisted of crab cakes, Brussels sprouts, and calamari were outstanding. The Caesers salad over the top. The waiter and his assist were on top, smiling, available, all you could ask for with service. I would definitely return and with a reservation. Their sushi bar looked incredible as we were walking out.

Our waiter was very attentive and the food was better than we imagined. You won’t be disappointed if you decide to give it a chance :)

    We always enjoy and look forward to our dinners at Firefly and last night was no exception. From the moment we walked in the service was impeccable! Cecilia our server was delightful and very engaging. We had our favorite she crab soup and the hypertonic salad. Our entrees were equally as good , my husband had the 8 oz filet and I had Kobe beef bruschetta. An expresso martini was dessert for my husband, I enjoyed the watermelon sorbet. Wonderful evening and we were so happy to see Lance as well who we used to request as our server. Don’t miss a chance to eat at Firefly!

    Rice rolls and main courses were excellent. O8r server, Andrew, provided excellent service. Two negatives--Firefly is now charging a 3.5% surcharge when using a credit card. This is the equivalent of $7 on a $200 check. Also, the expresso machine was down and we could not end the evening with a cappuccino.

    Firefly is an excellent dinner choice. This was our second time dining here this month. From appetizers to the main entree and dessert, it’s all delicious. The bourbon is grossly overpriced, but everything else is industry standard as far as costs but does exceed In presentation and taste. We had great servers BOTH visits. Byron makes great recommendations and Demar was very attentive! Look forward to our next visit. Dinner for 2 with an appetizer, meal, one cocktail each and gratuity ran 200.00.

    Our She Crab Soup was delicious but my Cesear Salad was not good. It had too much dressing and was in some type of edible cup that reminded me of Mexican food. My husband’s lettuce wedge was not a wedge and had too much dressing. His grouper was extremely bland. The bread was delicious. We had excellent service.

    My wife and I dined at Firefly for the first time to celebrate an anniversary. We made our reservation weeks in advance with great anticipation. Our experience exceeded our every expectation. The wait staff was friendly and welcoming, our server Andrew was absolutely stellar. Our meals were absolutely delectable. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our dining experience and we'll definitely return for another dining experience and special request Andrew as our server.

    We’ve dined at Firefly multiple times over the past 10 years of visiting PCB 2-3 x per year and the food has always been fantastic. The past several times he service has been lacking based on previous experiences. We waited several minutes to be greeted, which isn’t a huge issue, but would have liked to be acknowledged. We did order immediately as we had plenty of time to browse the menu. Starters were delivered with no spoon for soup. Server showed up @ 5 min later with bread and a spoon so it was not as fresh. Entrees were very good but don’t know if we will return as it doesn’t have the same “dining experience “ we used to enjoy as a splurge.

    I have on my profile that I have a nut allergy. When I ordered the grouper, I asked if the pesto sauce was made with nuts due to my nut allergy. Waiter kindly confirmed there were not. I ordered the flourless chocolate torte to go and it was brought with a chocolate and nut crumble on the side. I asked for one without and if there were any nuts in the torte. I was brought a new one and told it was nut free. My 4 girlfriends and I went home. I took one bite at home to realize the entire crust was crushed nuts!!! Had to take medication immediately to prevent anaphylactic reaction/swelling. Your Chef was NEGLIGENT at best. Do better!!!
