Overall, it was a pretty solid brunch. The frittatas were a bit old and I wish there was another egg option. . . and I wish they'd answer the phone to I could have let them know I was running a little later. . but overall it was enjoyable.

I wish I could give higher marks for the service because Jordan, and everyone was that good! Attentive without being overbearing. Ambiance is great and food is terrific!
Definitely adding it to the list of go-to places for date night, or a special place to go with friends.

An awesome evening for a friend’s birthday. Had the tuna tartar which was just unbelievable and the mushroom pappardelle. Others ordered scallops which were also great. This spot is never a disappointment.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Our reservation was for 7:15pm and we were not seated until 8pm. The hostess could have been more supportive and perhaps even offered us a complimentary drink for the wait, however, this did not happen and each time we had to check in on the status of our reservation, she seemed bothered by our inquiry. Our table was next to the bathroom and kitchen which was not ideal, but our server was attentive, professional and polite. The atmosphere is perfect for a date night and the food was delicious. Saturday evenings seem like a busy night so we will take this into consideration next time we dine at Firefly.

Dissapointed in what I suppose would be management. Made a reservation a week early for a birthday, asked for a specific table...early reservation, and there 's four of the same table. dropped off a bottle of special wine to be brought to the able. Didn't get the table, in fact got a terrible one in the corner, didn't bring the wine. Went that morning to remind them and tipped the hostess (pointless). Appeared to have 2 or 3 mangers walking around. not one came by and touched the table all evening to ask how things were? What are they there for? Will never go back. I suppose we drive over the hill for dinner for a reason. Food was cold and mediocre.

We truly enjoyed our dinner at Firefly and would highly recommend it! The atmosphere and the food was delicious. A very unique, romantic and elegant restaurant. Our only disappointment was in the service in that we were told that the private booths were only available to guests of 4 or more. As there were only two people in our party, although there were several empty booths we were not permitted to sit in a booth. As the night wore on, it became clear that parties of two were regularly seated in the booths. The manager stated that this was because the reservation had been for 4 but only two had shown. So that is the trick, I guess!

Good food, good service and nice atmosphere. However, we were rushed to go because their next reservation was already there. When you have 6 people and are given 90 minutes to eat your food along with a cocktail, appetizer, main course and a dessert plus included 20% tip on a 300 dollar bill...well, we would choose another place next time.

My gf and I went to firefly for our anniversary. I wanted to try a different place as we have gone to many nice restaurants in downtown and other areas. I thought that studio city might get us away from the insanity of downtown but it's busy in the valley too.

But right from the start the staff were very generous and seated us immediately even though we were late due to traffic. The staff was great during the entire meal. They even treated us to dessert for our anniversary! I have to say the meal was delicious, the steak frites and the scallops were both amazing. The broccolini was also very tasty. We had two glasses of wine which were great also. Additionally, they had a price fixe menu that was great and was no different than the actual courses on the regular menu, just cheaper.

But firefly did not disappoint. The ambiance was romantic with a fireplace and just nice decor. The back room whe the dining is, is very open and nicely decorated.

All in all we had a fabulous time and would recommend to anyone looking for a great meal.

Thanks to all the staff there for a great night

What a disappointment.

This restaurant is beautiful. The drinks were amazing. Those earned it 2 stars, thankfully, because everything else was terrible.

Service was bad. The front desk was rude, and the creepy guys there seemed too busy doing coke and gossiping. The waiter was slightly better but rarely came around. Wait times were too long. Staff was rushing around running into each other and customers.

The food was worse. Appetizers were okay, but the squash was far undercooked. Entrees were room temperature, and the duck was cooked to death. In theory, they might be good, but they clearly sat too long and were under-seasoned.

Very sad that such a good place was so bad. Perhaps it should just be a bar.
