What a treat! A very inconspicuous door leads to such an energetic, yet elegant semi-outdoor restaurant. Indoor/outdoor courtyard dining is always fabulous in Los Angeles and what Firefly has done with their decor, music, and overall VIBE is just out of this world.

We had dinner on a Monday and were absolutely DELIGHTED with the experimental musician playing - what a guy!!! Seriously some of the absolutely coolest live music I've ever heard, especially for a restaurant. It created such a high-end, art-punk vibe that I cannot even properly describe. We kept bringing it up during our meal.

Food was great, drinks were fairly priced, and the service was perfect. Excellent for an eclectic date night.

Firefly was one of my go to places when meeting up with friends in Studio City. Unfortunately, the place has become a big pick-up bar with noise levels found at a rock concert. My table was so dark, that I could not see my food on my plate. I had asked that they lower the music as we needed to yell at each other. The waiter said he could not assist.

I usually do not leave bad reviews but I have to be honest here. Though the food is great here, service is deteriorating. I went on a Monday for my boyfriend’s birthday and all the server and hostess did was rush us. Consistently trying to get us out of the table. Would not be returning.

Food was okay, service was slow and “selective”. By selective i mean, the people around us got more attention than we did. Literally the waitress went back and forth multiple times to check on the couple behind us, and the couple in front of us.

Appreciated the complimentary champagne glasses for our anniversary, but that’s the extent of her service.

So disappointed. A dry, cold, overcooked pork chop, called a "porterhouse", a burrata salad and they forgot the burrata. An overcooked Steak Frites.. A friend's main that arrived incredibly late, a watery waste of a Sazerac (who puts a cup of ice in a Sazerac?). A diligent wait staff, that really did their best. The cooks in the kitchen are AMATEURS. Because of the pandemic, we rarely dine out so this was going to be fun, and it was anything but. The food had NO LIFE to it... oh well.

The food was great... One of the best I had in California. The wine list by glass is perfectible. The cheese and the dessert were really a success (not too sweet and good quality products).

Firefly was an amazing experience. It has beautiful ambience complemented with a great staff. The food is very flavorful with proper portions. I was running late for my dinner reservation because the inconvenience of self parking; however, they have valet available. They were patient with my tardiness and we still got to sit at a great table. We received complimentary champagne for the birthday occasion. I definitely recommend this place for any occasion!

The food has gone down in quality. They really skimp on ingredients and flavor for Dine LA. My check was incorrect two times, and even when the manager came over to speak with me, no apologies or comp's were offered. This was my favorite restaurant in the valley that I frequent with my film industry films. Sadly I won't go back again.

I thought the waitress was warm and friendly. I thought the tables were too small, even for a table of 2. We were seated at the second outdoor patio. Knowing what I know now, would ask to be seated by the fireplace and Cabana because that’s where I feel is the better seating. I did say we were first timers, and going for a special occasion. Overall, the food was ok, drinks were ok. nothing that would make me come back again or recommend. Food on IG looks better than what it really is.

Horrible experience. Not going back. Ordered food and told that the plates were spilled, the heater next to our table wasn’t working and wasn’t offered to be placed somewhere else so we were freezing the entire time. I ordered a drink that came when I was having dessert. Never going back.

I really like Firefly. It was mine and my husbands second time there. Overall the experience is great. Service, no time to wait to be seated, ambiance, the food generally. The food was good this time, but wasn’t amazing, that’s said, I would still go back.

Came here for my sister birthday yesterday! The food was amazing, drinks were amazing, the desserts even better. The ambience super pretty, but Heather made the experience even better. She was an EXCEPTIONAL person who attended us with so much attention and was very delightful to be helped by her. Great customer service, very attentive, and was on top of everything. Will be coming back for sure!!

Johnny was amazing! He took such amazing care of us! He made sure to check in on us, he made great recommendations, and made us feel right at home! The look & layout are beautiful! Cute for a date, birthday, or just a fun and beautiful dining experience. The Pineapple Express cocktail and the Steak Frites plate were both delicious! Thank you!!

We were celebrating our engagement with another couple and had a lovely time. Only thing was the end when I asked for a glass of Taittinger- was brought a red wine, then a glass of white - never got it but it is ok, it was loud and hard to hear. Everything was great otherwise!

The interior is very romantic and beautiful but unfortunately the stuff and front desk were rude and pushy. The food selection was poor and honestly overpriced. Didn’t like any of the drinks, no “girly delicious cocktails “. Overall, Nothing special.

My husband and I went with 2 friends to celebrate their birthdays. It was pretty loud, but the server did have the music turned down a bit, which helped. The cocktails, food and service were excellent and the ambiance is awesome! I would definitely recommend Firefly.

Unless you’re a super cute influencer or wealthy with an entourage don’t expect good service. Food was fine. Service was terrible. It was a birthday they sat us next to the kitchen, the waitress literally forgot about us, had to be reminded to bring us water. Also when a table orders mussels - bring a plate for the shells…manager had to clear the table on way back from the bathroom since she forgot about us again, server literally flung a dessert menu on the table in passing then when was reminded it was a birthday put a sparkler in the bill. Not sure what to do with that. Again food was fine, not worthy of a return but we are foodies and maybe we expected more. I refrained from writing a note on the receipt or embarrassing my daughter who made the reservation and paid for the meal but decided enough people on OT should be aware.
