We celebrated my mom’s bday and her lady friend. It was great, from the ambience to the service to the food. Daniel our waiter was very sweet and very helpful. Thank you for taking care of us!

It's cute, the food is hit or miss. I don't think I'll go back but it was good for 1 evening.

Great place to have dinner. The restaurant is very romantic and appealing for anyone who is looking to enjoy a date, a birthday or just joining friends for dinner. The menu is excellent! There is a bit of everything for everyone. Service was superb. Manager would come by and check on you and ask how's everything which is great because it shows they want to make sure you are been taken care of. Vanessa our waitress was very helpful with menu since there is so much to pick. She even help me surprise my husband with a small dessert for his birthday with a candle busting with sparkles. The night we went was a bit chilly and I was concern we would be cold since it's an outside patio. I was wrong. They had the patio covered and heaters everywhere. Loved it! Will definitely go back to try everything in the menu. I highly recommended.

We were offered a steak for two as the daily special, and we were looking to split an entree. Most entree's were in the $35 to $40 range. We excepted the offer of the steak. When we got the bill the steak entree cost $130, plus they charged $5 to replace the vegetable.

We came for Sunday brunch buffet. The staff was friendly and attentive. The manager also made his rounds to check on customers. The restaurant has a cozy and whimsical feel indoors. There is a large covered patio. The food selection was pretty awesome and not your everyday brunch fare. There’s a meat station with salmon, chicken, turkey and beef. Then there’s a made to order omelette and pancake station. I didn’t try the omelette but the pancakes were cooked perfectly. They offered a variety of sauces but no whipped cream! :( Let’s get on to the amazing food offerings! I was actually mostly blown away by the vegetarian dishes! Loved the carrots, brussel sprouts, potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini - I mean the list goes on. They also had some traditional items that are still stellar - French toast cubes, bacon, scrambled eggs. There was a section for fresh fruits, salads, dips, cheese, even avocado toast! Then a seafood section with crab and ahi! A bagel bar. Then a huge section of pastries, cakes and mini desserts. I want to go back already!! I’m sure their other menus are good but their buffer was definitely worth the drive from OC. Valet is $8 or street parking. The bathroom is part communal with the sinks, unmarked stalls and marked for specific genders.

Overall, the place is great. However, there's always room for improvements. The music in the dining area is too loud, it is difficult to communicate with my date.

I came here to celebrate my third year anniversary, and I had an amazing time. Not only is the restaurant romantic, the food was delicious at such a great price. The service went above and beyond to make us feel special. I wasn’t expecting to have such a great experience, they even gave us a dessert to celebrate our love. Thank you to all the staff who made us love this restaurant. Will definitely be back.

My wife and I love firefly, but we will never come back on Valentine’s Day. They added tables to maximize their profits and to minimize the first experience. The first tried to sit us inches behind the DJ. We were then moved to an added table in the pathway next to the bar. You can imagine how many times a waiter or passerby bumped into our table. One time our water bottle was almost knocked over into my lap.

The food definitely did not feel elevated. The seafood tasting appetizer course, for example, seemed lazily conceived and thrown together. My steak was cooked more than what I asked. And overall I was not impressed and very remorseful for having spent $150 per person.

Like I said, we’ve been here before and we consider ourselves foodies Who enjoy upscale meals. This was not that.

Went for the Valentines Day prix-fix dinner. Not worth $150 dollars. We were ignored for a long time and the food was below quality then we’ve ever had before at Firefly. I understand it was a holiday and it was very busy, but we felt very dumped with how much $$ we spent. Don’t go on a Holiday!!!

We have always enjoyed the imaginative menus here. However this meal was a wide miss at an attempt to do a special meal. The cocktail at the start was like a chocolate milk shake. The food was average. Not at all what we have come to expect from this kitchen. And the dessert was a very mediocre compilation of tasteless offerings with no imagination resulting in total lack of appeal.

I liked a lot of Firefly the food was pretty good. Loved the frisee salad and the poke cornello. My lamb sirloin was fantastic. The one part of Firefly I don't understand though is the music. I personally like the music but I don't feel it felt very romantic and kind of felt odd having to shout at my date all night. Perhaps there is a purpose to this but I don't see it.

We had to sit in the library bar area which is nice but isn’t as quiet. But that’s because I waited until the day before to reserve a table. It was a busy night, but the food and service were still excellent. Firefly is one of my favorite spots.

It was for my birthday and they charged extra because it was my birthday. Usually restaurants gives u a complementary desert but they charges the customer. AND there was an automatic 20% gratuity just for a party of 3. Never again will I go there. It was a complete scam
