This restaurant is always the perfect escape. The food is spectacular (notably the scallops and the Brussels sprouts) and the service is professional, attentive, friendly- perfect! The atmosphere is like a mini vacation. Each time I am there, The space and decor manage to psychologically transport me to somewhere far away and relaxing. This last time was an anniversary dinner and we were greeted with well wishes and complimentary champagne. The Firefly! Special. Go.

Restaurant is great but the music was too loud for my comfort. Good news, the musician was good so it was as irritating as it could have been.

We had a seven o’clock reservation. We weren’t seated until almost 8. We were seated next to a couple who told us they were there since 5 and weren’t seated until almost 2 hours later. The conclusion was that they clearly overbooked. It was Thanksgiving so they should have been more careful not to overbook. Another thing was that when we were finally seated the server told us that we had to order the Prixe fixe menu and couldn’t order A la carte. They did allow us to order a la carte but only from the Prix fixe menu. It’s unfortunate because the ambience was wonderful but the service was lacking.

Overall, we were disappointed with our Thanksgiving at Firefly. We had a 5:30 reservation, and weren't seated until after 6. Even though the menu was prix fixe, we still did not receive our entree until after 7:30 PM, and they were out of one of the side dishes. It appears that there were too many reservations for that evening, and the staff was unable to keep up. Our server was very nice and apologetic, but overall, it was not a great first impression.

This place is only good for drinks. We went for prix fixe thanksgiving and were served cold oysters Rockefeller, a martini with a twist made dirty 3 times in a row, macaroni and cheese with no macaroni...and then our dessert came before our appetizers. Beyond that the staff lacked knowledge of ingredients and first told us that everything was organic, farm to table and assured us there was no canola oil in their food and then returned to tell us that normally this is the case but tonight everything was made with canola oil and that all of the meat was pre rubbed in it as well. 😡

Everything was great and my dinner was delicious, the only downside was that my table was very shaky and wobbly which bugged me. The server didn't offer my party a different table when there was clearly more seating options.

Best food experience I’ve ever had. Our waiter, Christian, was so completely helpful and had the most amazing pairing recommendations. The food was incredible and the scallops were to die for. Definitely will be back, and recommending this place to everyone.

Staff was rude when I asked if the server if he could ask another guest to move his chair over as he was literally sitting in our table space. His response was "it's everyone's restaurant"... meanwhile my guest had to squeeze into his seat as if we were flying on some budget low-cost carrier. This totally ruined the experience. Manager on duty seemed to try to fight me on my complaint and this really made matters worse in the way that she seemed to try to dismiss the matter. As a professional publicist for 20 years I found this to be a very poor way of handling the matter, blantant disregard and I would strongly think twice about going back as there are many other places in Studio City that have less attitude.

My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary.
This indeed is a beautiful and romantic place but at the same time very loud. The food is average. The service was ok. The only thing I loved was the decor of the place. Really beautiful.

My boyfriend and I went here for my birthday dinner. The ambience and service was amazing. We really enjoyed our chacuterie board and 32 ounce shareable steak. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Ambience abounds. Jordan provided excellent service and was really knowledgeable about the menu and wine pairings. Food was outstanding and the overall vibe stands apart from other LA dining. Bar got quite crowded and was a bit loud for a romantic after dinner drink, but good for them I guess. We'll be back soon. Only drag was 90 minute table limit that we were unaware of till we got there. It was more than enough time and we were never kicked out - Its just a bit of a bad presentation to hear as we're sitting down at our table. I'm sure we would have ordered more had we not felt like we were on a strict time limit.

came to celebrate a birthday. extremely noisy, even on a tuesday night, but luckily we were seated in the cabanas with a little more privacy. not that it helped with the noise levels. service was EXCEPTIONAL and food was amazing even though everything we were served (from appetizers to mains & sides) was borderline cold.

Made reservation for 9:45, not knowing the kitchen closed 5 minutes later! Was forced to order immediately. The food was subpar, and the pasta was undercooked, and not even the correct pasta that is on the menu (and that I have had before). This was a special occasion, and was rushed through our meal. The waitress then came over to discuss the bill in the middle of our toast, which was the most important part of our evening. Ruining the important significant moment we were celebrating (11:11 on 11/11). It was obviously we were toasting and I was speaking to my companion. My response when the waitress came over indicated that she was interrupting something important. The lack of awareness was upsetting. I still tipped her well, but I will NEVER return to firefly. I have eaten here many times over the last decade, and this was the worst experience ever!! Open table should not be allowing reservations to be made when the kitchen is closing. This is YOUR fault, I would have picked another restaurant.

I love everything from food, ambiance, and service. The only comment I have is the noise. The music is a little loud but perhaps it’s because I’m getting older😃

Service was definitely AMAZING, 10/10! Food was good, not sure it was worth the price considering the portion size but I guess what you’re paying for is the experience as the restaurant itself is very beautiful. Seems as though the indoor is more for the bar, lounging and the patio is for the actual diners. I made a reservation and requested a cabana, noted I was going for a birthday and every little detail was definitely acknowledged. 100% recommend and will definitely be going back soon!

Firefly is a beautiful and dope restaurant, perfect for a date. Even I made a reservation at 8pm and called that I will arrive 20min late I had to wait at the bar first before a table was free. Luckily I got a beautiful table next to the fire. After ordering the fix menu it took a good 25min until the starter came the wine pairing a glass of prosecco came at the same time. Midway eating the starter our msin arrived. When we got to the main, the food was not hot any longer. The market fish was hardly dissappointing without any flavor and the steak frites overly dry but cooked well. After when we got our dessert, they brought us the bill simultanously.

The food is alright with a highlight of the chicory salad but the way the push you as fast as possible through your dinner makes it an unpleasamt experience.

The ambiance is nice, kind of dark and romantic. Strained my voice trying to talk over the music. The food was tasty. The service great but the prices vs the quantity of food you get was ridiculous. I ordered the lamb T bone which tasted great but had probably had 1.5 ounces of meat total as it was mostly bone and no sides just sitting on some leaves and tomatoes for presentation. My husband had the fish special which was bass. Again it was 2 ounces of fish. The same could be said of the appetizers. Needless to say we left the place a little hungry. If the prices were more reasonable, we would have been okay with that.

Always great @ Firefly. Our party straggled in with enough time to get a pre-dinner drink. Once our last guest made it in, we were promptly seated and specials were offered. Service was prompt but not ostentatious or over-bearing and our meals were prompt and delicious, with some of us ordering a Special, and others ordering off the usual fare. Overall great experience and we will definitely return :)

I would recommend because of the very upscale and romantic setting, but I would also like to keep it a secret as to not have it ruined by over crowding....it's a hidden Gem the we look forward to visiting over and over again ..an taking friends to impress with how discreet it is and how great the service and food are!
