I'd recommend Firefly but not recommend getting a reservation- regardless of whether you email them directly, call or book through Open Table, the hostess will remind you that it's "first come, first served". Special requests will not be honored.

Wonderful place. Understand the higher prices due to more limited seating etc but would be much more inclined to return if the drinks were a bit more reasonable

The experience my girlfriend and I had was epic. The Firefly is truly a hidden gem in Studio City. The food was excellent, the ambiance was superb, and the music was super hip.

I think this restaurant has done a great job with their outdoor dining - in regard to COVID. Their patio is enclosed so it is comfortable and they are able to seat so many more people but you are nowhere near the people next to you. The only thing I would tell them is to find something else to clean your wood tables with - they are sticky and we were told it is from their sanitizer - it is yucky. Otherwise a great experience. The service and the food were great. I'll definitely go back.

ambiance is great here. Food quality and portions lack a lot. I ordered bread pudding and the size was that of a muffin-- for $15. Not worth it. Dry , stale. Need more entree choices, better quality foods, and portions that are for adults, not kids.
The ambiance was wonderful. Waiter was great. But, not enough to make us return

Great restaurant. Ambience was amazing; Like no other. Food sizes are proportional and very filling. The waiters were really sweet and on top of everything especially refilling drinks. Price was moderate for 2 people. Overall would definitely recommend.

Unique ambiance. There are two dining areas, the first of which is much more desirable. The second dining area looks like a movie set with temporary props....
Menu is quite limited and food was of moderate quality....
I’m glad I went, but don’t think I’ll be returning....

2nd visit to Firefly had an amazing time, my Gf loved it the food, appetizers, and drink’s were perfect zero complaints. I do wish I could remember the champagne that we were served while welcomed by the waiter. My compliments to the waiter amazing service and very attentive to our needs and of his other tables.

Went here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and our two year anniversary. We were greeted with little flutes of champagne on the house and one of the most intimate and charming restaurants I've ever been to. The staff were all incredible, friendly, and so funny which added so much to the experience. The food was delicious and more than fairly priced (we got two cocktails, a bottle of wine, one appetizer, two intense entrees and a dessert for less than $200...after tip). Our dessert also came with a little sparkler which made for some great pictures to remember the occasion. This has been one of the most memorable restaurants I've visited in the two years that I've lived here.

Will absolutely be dining here again!

I love how they set up the outdoor dining. Food was great and even the cocktails were decent. They ran out of the tomahawk, but the filet was still tasty. Server was quick and attentive. Very much worth it.

My partner and I visited for an anniversary dinner and loved every part of our evening.
The staff were wonderful, wishing us a happy anniversary at check in. We sat in the library lounge with a cocktail whilst waiting for our table. The library lounge is plush and has a great ambience, the cocktails were delicious.

We were shown to our table fairly quickly and our server came straight over to tell us about their specials and take a drinks order.
We never waited long for our server to check in or take our food order and he came by often to check for drinks too.
The food was amazing! We started with the arugula and manchego salad and the fried olives. Both a great choice! We then shared their entree special of the Tomahawk steak, which was cooked perfectly and seasoned so well.

The dining area is so pretty and a perfect setting for a date night, it’s very romantic for sure!

Started off with cocktails which were both well made and not lacking in the proper amount of base i.e. Strong! Then the Crispy Manzanilla Olives - addictive and oh so good. Then we decided to split the special of the night, the 34oz Tomahawk Streak. The meat just melted in your mouth. Perfectly seasoned and a perfect medium rare. The roasted Brussel sprouts were crispy, but tender in the center. For dessert, we had the Butterscotch Budino along with a glass of their 20 year old Tawney Port, and we were in heaven. Christian took awesome care of us, and was very engaging, but not overbearing. All the staff seemed to be thrilled to have diners back. Their back yard patio is the best place in town to have dinner or drinks! Can't wait to dine with them again.

Great service! We had reservations and were running late, but let them know in advance. They were nice about it on what looked like a busy night and we were seated within 5 minutes of arriving. Our waitress was great, very nice and prompt service. Food came out well timed. Food was okay. We had the crispy chicken and steak frites. Both were cooked wonderfully, but the chicken had little to no flavor. The fries were delicious and drinks were great although not consistent in potency (first drink made great and second too strong). Would definitely go back to try some other menu items and for the service and environment.

Sad to be leaving such a bad review, because we loved Firefly about a year or two ago and used to come a decent amount. Right off the bat- we weren't seated for our 8 pm reservation until 9. The bar was packed with other people also waiting for even earlier reservations. We're definitely patient, but we were starving! The hostess seemed annoyed when we asked if we should get another drink or if our table would be ready soon at 8:45. When we finally sat down, our table was super sticky from previous diners and it was clear it hadn't been wiped down. Our menus stuck to the table.

Our food was just okay - not bad, but not great. We had the tuna to start, my boyfriend had meatballs and the butterball potatoes, and I had the steak frites. We tried the caramel budino for dessert. There was way, way too much horseradish aioli on his potatoes, they were basically soaked, but the steak was really delicious. The tuna was rfine, the meatballs were pretty meh. It was really hard to flag down our waiter to ask for things like a steak knife, or to order dessert - and it took us just as long to pay and leave as it did to show up - it was almost 11 when we left.

Can't imagine going back for an hour wait for a reserved table for such a bland time. I'd definitely skip this for a date. Bummed that it went so far downhill.

We were taken to the new outdoor tent seating. So beautiful and we were so excited to get out to dinner after months locked in quarantine. Our server greeted us, and saw my friend had spilled some of her drink. He never offered her a napkin or to wipe it up. The table was sticky and dirty from previous guests. We ordered an appetizer of some bread and butter. Server came back after 40 minutes to take our order and then never checked on us again. We had told him it was a birthday celebration. We had to ask a runner to find him for the check. Food was delicious, sorry server was such a dud.
