Really wanted to like this local restaurant but food is just meh considering the price. The restaurant itself is lovely inside with a cozy lounge area and expansive bar. Wished it was better. We will come back for drinks though.

Celebrated our anniversary & valentines day here. It was a very romantic setting, dimly lit, such a beautiful restaurant! We sat by the fireplace. I highly recommend this place. Specially if you’re looking for something romantic! The service was amazing & the food was great we started off with mussels which were bomb! I had the salmon & he got the pasta which was also very good.

We loved the ambiance and the food was delicious. I had noted with our reservation that it was our 20 year Anniversary so I was hoping that given that they would have given us a special table. But we were not given a cozy table near fireplace or nestled in a quiet corner😳 we were sitting out in the open with bustling traffic around us and sitting at a Four top. So that was a little disappointing.

Food here is a bit on the oily side for our tastes but we had an exceptional experience! We had a minor accident at the beginning of dinner and Rod(the manager) did a wonderful job taking care of us in addition to Firefly's attentive staff. We came here to celebrate our anniversary and requested a specific table(which we got!) we couldn't be more thrilled to pick Firefly as for our special date night. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a romantic date night!

Great place.. we came in almost an hour earlier than our reservation on a Friday and we were seated immediately!!! Staff was very helpful and attentive even those not serving us. Food came out at a good pace; not too quickly and not too slowly. Cocktails are strong but well balanced.

Was a very romantic setting for my Valentine date. We had a wonderful time and the service and food was great. Ambiance in the courtyard by the fireplace was nice. The holiday table settings were beautiful.

While I have enjoyed this restaurant and its food and atmosphere in the past, I will never go for Valentine's Day again. The pre fixe menu was WAY too expensive for the offering and it was just not worth it. The food was fine but not exceptional or memorable, we have had way better food at other restaurants that did not charge this exorbitant amount for a tasting menu. If you are going to charge $125pp it should at least include the wine pairing or unlimited champagne. The service was fine but not remarkable by any means, we were never offered more wine nor was the menu explained to us. They didn't make the night feel special, which you would expect when you are paying that much money for it. It was very clear that they wanted to get us out of there as quickly as possible because they were so busy. We were only there for an hour. I had requested a table close to the fireplace in my Open Table reservation (which I had made over a month in advance) but we were seated as far away from the fireplace area as possible, so the romantic atmosphere was also lacking for this experience. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed in this experience given how extremely expensive it was. It was overpriced and not worth the cost.

Valentines Day with Pre Fixe menu was excellent to include service & everything else. I will definitely come back again & also tell friends. Already planning a dinner with friends soon there. Thank you again!

Restaurant failed to notify us of a fixed menu ($125) for Valentine’s and we couldn’t opt out, so make sure to research fixed menu prices if you’re going here for a holiday. But the service was still great, ambiance was incredible. They initially had us sit at the table next to the kitchen bathroom but allowed us to move to a much nicer table. Our waiter was great. The food was good, but not worth the price of $125 per head

The cost of the prefix menu for Valentine’s Day was excessive. When I made the reservation on Open Table I remember seeing a price of $85; however when at the restaurant, it displayed $125 on the menu. Very deceptive. Value for the food was low.

$250 prix fixer for two and $100 per person cancellation I guess my expectations were set a little high. Food was average for fine dining on a special occasion. Waitress not so friendly. Ambiance and room setting was awesome when you can see it since my date was sat with her back to the restaurant being that we were one of the blessed few that were seated in the back row of tables with neighbors on both sides of us about a foot away. Overall, would be interested to give it another shot with their regular menu and a better table but not sure how soon we’ll be back.

What a disappointment!
They forgot the chainsaw that was necessary to cit the bread served when we were seated. I appreciate a good, crusty bread; but, the only way to break off a piece was literally to repeatedly stab it with the point of the knife! Then it was nearly impossible to chew without cutting up the inside of tour mouth.
My filet mignon was over cooked and the glaze/sauce was coyingly sweet and crunchy, again to the point of cutting the inside of my mouth when chewed. The bone marrow was super small and had to ask for a spoon to get to the tiny amount served. The sunchokes were very good.
Drinks were fair, service was fair, prices high for the quality of the food.
Very high noise level.
We won't go back.

We had a lovely anniversary dinner - a wonderful treat. The food was exceptional, along with the service.

Only slight complaint is the risotto was a bit 'oily' and coffee was lukewarm.
