    Salads pre made and very cold. Companion had to send beef back to be cooked more. We both ordered med rare. But it was very rare. Fine by me, but not companion. He seemed content w it after more cooking. Lots of food. Server very good, personable. The place was packed. Don’t go there often. But on my can be relied upon list… Recommend..

    It was our first time there. Nice atmosphere. Clean and comfortable. The go-go bread sounded great but was a little disappointing. The sourdough was great but the fondue was mostly roux and very little cheese. We ended up having the Chicken Farfalle and the Bourbon Street Fettuccini, and both were tasty. Decent portion sizes. Creme Brûlée and Chocolate Chip Sundae were both perfect. Our server was excellent - very professional. The food was priced above what we expected, but not too outrageous. Pasta entrees were around $25 each, appetizer was $10 and dessert was $8. It was a lovely evening. We would definitely go back!

    We were seated early - within minutes of arriving. Staff was great and the food was good too. It was very busy and loud when we arrived. By the time we left it was about half full and volume was tolerable.

    Really amazing food, we got the go go bread (a must), the beef stroganoff and Murrays Chicken. Seasoning was great, waiter (Anthony) was so nice and it was like he was teleporting around. They gave us free dessert for our anniversary! Carrot cake was so good.

    My sisters and I had our Christmas sisters’ lunch at Firefly yesterday and couldn’t have been more satisfied with the food and service. All 3 entrees were scrumptious and the drinks were great. Our server was attentive but not too intrusive. He had a great sense of humor and let us enjoy our lunch without hurrying us. This was my second recent visit to Firefly, and I’ll be back soon!

    Portions of the restaurant are dislocated from the rest, breaking the atmosphere somewhat. Street view should be blocked from inside or given glazing at least 1/2 or 3/4 up the sidewalk windows/door. Brick walls inside look nice, but “excessive” dividers break the flow. Also the brick is loud and the sounds of conversation easily crescendo. Service excellent, just the right amount of checking in and VERY promptly bringing orders. Wine list is good, nice selection of reds. Dessert was superb. Main course felt a little heavy maybe, but the chowder was so good the dinner was a slight let down as a result. 8/10 would go again.
