We were on time for our reservation and we still had to wait for a table for about 30 minutes and the host and said they were clearing up the table and it took 30 minutes. It was also our friend birthday (which you guys were in form when making this reservation) the services people were nice but they didn’t bring her a little cake. The food from a 1-10 with 10 being the best I give them 6-7. Overall the restaurants very pretty it’s very nice kind of noisy but it’s a nice restaurant

The food was delicious and the servers very nice. I wish the menu was a bit more expansive. Main courses when we were there were a beef, a pork, a salmon, a vegetarian, a pasta. One of each. Not too many choices. And my friend who loves dessert passed on the 3 or 4 that were offered...not interewting enough. The capuccino was fine.

Requested a nice/cozy table in a quiet part of the restaurant, for a special anniversary dinner. Grabbed a quick drink in the lounge/library area, and were warmly greeted, then taken to our seats. Our table was seated in a separate area, perched slightly above the main dining floor, right next to a warm fire/fireplace. Our server wished us a happy anniversary and took good care of us all night. We ordered the Fixed Price 3 course meal, and everything was delicious. Everyone at the restaurant gave top notch service, and made sure we had a very special night. Food was delicious...my wife and ordered different items and shared. Can't wait to go back. Highly recommend if you're looking for a special place for a special occasion.

Firefly is a beautiful restaurant with a cool vibe. It was really busy so our server ran a little slow with taking our order, serving drinks, etc. the food was good (random but their fries are great!). The noise level is a tad high so its hard to have a conversation. We had a nice time and will go back again.

Beautiful outdoor seating with twinkly lights. Great place to celebrate special occasions. Our server was fantastic and super friendly! Food was delicious but a bit on pricey side. Since there are always people waiting for a table, they kick you out as soon as you’re done with your meal and have paid the check. I get it.

We went out to celebrate our two year anniversary, it was also our first night out since having a baby! Service was awesome! Upon arrival our table wasn’t ready but we were able to grab a drink before at the bar no biggie. Our table was next to the fireplace, super romantic and chill vibe! Exactly what we were looking for!

Food was delicious and the drinks were on point! We look forward to returning for another date night soon!

Amazingly delicious food. I had the filet mignon. I wish thy did more with their french fries as they are truly run of the mill bar fare skinny sad things in a metal cup. For a high end $$$ menu, ($380 for four people with a bottle of wine, 2 appetizers and a dessert), you would think the chef could make the fries steak fries, or something with a little more flair. And the place is loud, but I would definitely go again.

Cooked perfectly and beautifully played! Our server was great!! Cocktails are pricey, could give you a bigger glass fir $16… but other than that o highly recommend!

I had more expectation from the place. The food and drinks are good and ambience is nice too. I went to celebrate my anniversary and asked for a nicer table. Did not end up getting one and the table we got was super tiny. Would still visit this place to hang out with friends. But not for special occasion celebration.

Had to wait for a table. It was our anniversary and other than the acknowledgment nothing special. Took an hour and 15 min to get our main course from the time of our reservation. I think it could’ve been better. Food was amazing.

The ambiance is beautiful, the waitstaff was very attentive and the food was great. My only recommendation is they get better chairs. They were patio style cheap chairs that hurt my tushy. Would love to come back, but want a booth!

This place has good ambient but the food is basic. The servers were nice and friendly. However, even with a reservation we had to wait ~20 minutes to be seated and about 15 minutes until a server showed up at our table. It’s nice to try, but not a place that we would go back to.

We loved the ambiance and the welcome sparkling rose. Service was exceptional. Limited menu. Lovely cheese platter for appetizer. Lousy steak knives. Entrees has no flavor and cracked pepper not available. Chefs should taste test their recipes. Very bland.

This was my first time at Firefly. Overall very good experience. The primary courtyard dining area is beautiful, but we were seated at a secondary area which was not as pretty but still charming and the tables were spread further apart and the area is quieter. Excellent service. Strong wine list. Menu had more limited offerings than I would expect for a restaurant of this caliber. Food was good but not memorable. My only complaint is that our entrees arrived at the table no more than 5 minutes after we placed our order, so clearly the food is pre-prepared.

Party of 6 to celebrate a colleague. We had a reservation; everyone was early and we were seated promptly outside as requested. Bartenders and servers were very friendly and personable. Ambiance is very nice, and I would recommend it for a couple on a romantic date. For a girls gathering it was nice, a little noisy so hard to converse. The menu is limited, which is fine. I just thought that the value for the quality and quantity of food was not good (the overhead is high in that part of town so that may account for it). One person did not receive their side vegetables and when we told the server she took it off the bill. My fillet was not cooked evenly, parts were medium and parts of it were rare. Overall, I would say it was just OK not an amazing dining experience.

Met up with friends. This is one of the prettiest rooms in town, but it would be great if the food matched the ambiance. It’s overly fancy without being great, and the service is friendly but scattered. Shame.

Very pleased overall! The Prix Fixe Menu are worth the money! I had Steak frites is a bit overcooked as I ordered the medium rare but the beet sauce is good! Meatball as appetizer is very tasty! The Chocolate pot is rich and if you like chocolate; then you will appreciate it! Ambience is good and the bathroom is interesting as everyone goes in would wonder if we entered the wrong place!! lol

Experience this time was not the best. Food orders were incorrect and served with warm beer for one of our guests. We split the check and that wasn’t even split correctly, even though I wrote it down for our server.
