The first time I went the lobster and corn risotto was terrible, very fishy. I swore I wouldn’t go back but this weekend decided to give them a second chance. The menu is weird to say the least. There’s filet mignon and tuna fish sandwiches on the same menu which is odd. I had scallops, which were good but the Brussel sprout appetizer was not good at all. The drinks were good and our server was excellent but based on the menu items and price, I will not recommend Firefly. We go out pretty much every weekend for dinner in the greater NH area and are willing to pay for excellent food but firefly is not worth it.

It was a 45 minute wait for those that did not have a reservation. Service was excellent and food very good. Chocolate tort dessert was not good at all-our only complaint.

Everything from the greeting at the door, to the drinks, and food was fantastic. I made a last minute reservation on a Friday night for a late dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. We will definitely be back.

Our server was wonderful and the food…blackened salmon and short ribs…was delicious. We were celebrating my 75th birthday so the carrot cake (made on site) was free and delicious. You won’t be disappointed!

I had made a reservation for the express reason of eating outside and listening to music - that's what we do and what we enjoy. They told me that I could only make reservations for outside by directly calling the restaurant and there was no room for us outside. There was no notification anywhere on Open Table that expressed this. Our waiter told us that "rule" was not true. In addition, half of the tables both inside and outside were empty. This will definitely make me rethink returning, especially when we drop $400.

They are my favorite restaurant as well as my mother's. Every time we are here it is a pleasant experience from the greeting at the door to entering to the amazing waitstaff. Food is always consistently amazing, not to mention the best martinis ever! So happy for have Firefly to celebrate special events or just a regular day!

Service was great from waitstaff to hosts. The food and drinks were delicious and reasonably priced. I had a lavender blueberry lemonade cocktail that was perfect, a chicken plate, calamari and tiramisu for dessert. The decor was great with some art pieces of movie scenes on the wall for purchase I believe. Def will be back when I’m town!

Consistent & above average in all areas! Our table at 6:30 PM (on a very busy, Saturday grad night) was tucked into the farthest corner of the bar area, and so it was a wee bit awkward getting in and out with other guests at that end of the bar as well....but it was fine. Our server, Sean, was as fabulous as he was the last time we visited, and he remembered us, which is always fun. I've never been disappointed at Firefly. Worth every penny, every time!

Was seated next to an obnoxious grous of six women who were loud and inconsiderate. Made it difficult to hear the conversation with my friend. They were VERY intoxicated which did not help the situation. ;most called the cops to notify them that these peoplecould be driving and be a hazard, but decided that;s their karma. Food was plentiful but not thst great. The desert we took home (choclate GF cake) was dry and tasted terrible. Out server tried but she was totally overworked like most servers.

Our server was fantastic! He wore a tan scali cap and while I can not recall his name, he was so patient while we chatted and caught up. Service was great and he was attentive to my nut allergy careful to let me know the ingredients so I felt comfortable. Great time!!!

Drink special lychee mimosa very refreshing. Bloody Mary also not too spicy as requested. Greek omelet chock-a-bloc full of spinach, sliced black olives, and feta but fairly small for a supposedly 3-egg omelet. Also very dry, a bit too well done, which detracted from its appeal on the plate. Ditto for the Western omelet - plentiful on the ham and fixings but also very dry and on the smallish side for a 3-egg omelet. Service was spot on. Were grateful to the server for mentioning that fruit bowl could be subbed for the home fried potatoes.

However, the host was very accommodating, and our assigned waiter (Andrew) took our cocktail order as we were waiting. Eventually we were seated in an alternate location and had a wonderful experience.
