I would advise anyone I recommended Firefly to of the cost and caution them against going on a holiday like Valentine's. While the food was their usual tasty fare, neither the complimentary champagne to start nor the "lobster roll" amuse bouche made the limited prix fix menu in any way a good value for money. The starters and entrees were as expected; the desserts were "meh". I asked our server if a particular white wine was sweet, as I expected it might be according to the varietal, and she confidently confirmed it was. It most definitely was not. For c. $430 I expected MUCH better. I expected flawless for that kind of money. I knew the price beforehand. I did nit suffer stickershock. It honestly was that great a disappointment, given the pricetag.
In contrast, we recently had a 7 course tasting menu in Reykjavik where food is at least 50% more expensive than LA for the equivalent of $325 USD that was significantly better. I had no trouble with that due to the value received.
I will be very careful about booking another reservation, and it won't be on a holiday where they structure the menu similarly.

I went with my girlfriend for an early Valentines date. We started off with some cocktails, I got the Whiskey in the Jar and she got the Little Red Corvette. We got a little champagne while we waited and the cocktails were amazing. Then we ordered the Veal Meatballs as an appetizer, those were very good as well, then we ordered entrees. She got the Lamb Shank and I ordered the Pork Tenderloin. The lamb was fatty and flavorless and the tenderloin has a little bit of a sauce that was okay but other than that it was very bitter and flavorless. I ate the tenderloin anyways but when I tried the lamb I had to spit it out, and let me tell you I do not spit out food. We told our lovely and friendly waitress and she told her manager, they were very professional and understanding, they gave us a dessert on the house and they didn’t charge us for the lamb. Overall I’d say when I go back it will be mainly for cocktails and maybe an appetizer or side. The atmosphere was very nice for a date night though and I’m sure their other dishes are fantastic, they certainly looked it.

My partner and I were disappointed that our reservation included a request for a cabana which was not addressed at all. The dinning experience was subpar. It was extremely noisy and confining. We came from far out of town to experience a top quality restaurant and were disappointed with our experience at firefly. Will not dine there again.

I generally like Firefly for the food and ambience.
On my last two visits the vegetables have been a little too "al dente" for my taste, but the fish has always been good (I'm a pescaterian). Service is usually okay. But on my last visit the service wasn't good and this was at 5.30 with the place almost empty.

From the very romantic ambience and vibe, to the great menu and execution, the service, thank you Bess, and to the warm and convivial host Chris.

We had a fantastic experience at Firefly. Was our first time & it definitely did not disappoint. The food was amazing. We went during dineLA, however opted to order off the regular menu vs. the limited dinela menu. The fried olives are not to be missed. The bread & garlic butter arrives st your table piping hot. Wine menu is perfection. Despite it being a busy Friday night, our waiter slowed our food coming out of the kitchen so we could take our time and enjoy our dinner without being rushed. Our waiter, Christian, was friendly, funny, knowledgeable about the menu & accommodating, customer service at its finest (hence his 30% tip!). Firefly is not inexpensive, so expect to spend some money for a delicious meal in a lovely environment. Worth every penny...

The food here was awesome and ambiance is probably pretty cool, but we were there in the pouring rain and the whole restaurant is pretty much an outdoor patio.....the covering on the patio leaked a tad, but the fireplace in the middle was awesome. Bottomline, we want to come back some evening when it isn't raining. Service was also spectacular.

Great food for buffet brunch! Would have preferred bottomless mimosas included in the buffet brunch since it is on the pricier side. But our server was great and attentive to our group and made sure we were satisfied throughout our dinning experience.
