Online reservations at Firefly Tosa can only be made directly on their website.
We were the only ones there for most of the time...one other party for awhile. The waitress rushed us...we had to slow her down! She could have been more gracious! Not sure why no one was there.
Second time here and both times were great. They don’t disappoint.
Amazing food and atmosphere. One of my favorite spots in Wauwatosa!!
Too dark to even see my food...which just looked like a pile of brown...very uninteresting visually. Waitress reluctant to even give an opinion on entrees, didn't know what they were out of till I ordered and she had to check. She brought no value-add to the experience. Martinis were not chilled enough. Highlight was the calamari appetizer. Overall, not great for the money.
My boyfriend and I went for an anniversary dinner. This was my choice because my boyfriend would never have picked a restaurant that is considered "trendy on his own. I was really hoping he'd like it. Obviously, I was hoping I would as well. Good news! We both liked it very much. He would even like to come back. That is something Firefly can brag about. LOL. My spinach and quinoa salad was one of the best salads I have had in quite a very long time. It was fresh and tasted delicious. I ate every last bite. Had I been alone, I might have led to the plate. I had the salmon dinner and I really loved the chickpea and goat cheese that it was served with. Those are all some of my favorite things and Firefly did them very well. I don't often have old Fashions but I chose a black cherry old fashioned and I'm glad I did as it was refreshing and delicious. My boyfriend loves to the short ribs and enjoyed his wild mushroom soup very much. We both felt comfortable in the atmosphere. Our service was very good. As a server myself, I really appreciate good service. Thank you!
I was going to miss my good friend’s baby shower, so I made a reservation for us to meet here to celebrate instead. It was just the two of us but I asked for a larger table to accommodate space for gifts. It was a Wednesday evening so they happily accommodated.
The Firefly Mojito is seriously AMAZING and is included in happy hour, so a great deal too. My friend loved that they also had non-alcoholic cocktails, so she also got to have a “mojito.” We ordered a bunch of appetizers (all very yummy) and then a chocolate cake to end (plus one to take home for my kids, which again they happily accommodated.)
Beautiful location, fabulous atmosphere. Great service, our server that night was wonderful.
Party of 8 was unimpressed with the offerings from Firefly. The food was average to good, but there was no bread or pre-dinner food. I guess you must order an appetizer. Additionally, I was not impressed with the automatic 20% gratuity charge. Yes I read it on the menu beforehand, but our server did nothing for us!! She checked on our entrees AFTER we finished eating. She never came around at all, again banking on the automatic tip. I have many other restaurants that will provide great service, I will not return here.
Appetizers were great! Meal was ok. Main entree served before we were done with salads and appetizers
Loved the fireplace room. The skylight would be great during the day.
I hate writing a bad review. I do this in hope that as a small business owner, their ownership takes this to heart. My youngest daughter requested Firefly as her birthday dinner for the second straight year. My two youngest ordered off the children's menu, which is fine. Nothing too special. My wife and I ordered appetizers to share. The sliders were over-cooked and very dry. We also had the flat bread, which was pretty good. One of our choices never made the table and was listed on our receipt. Our server was very nice. However our kids were not offered any drinks other than water (we probably should have said something). Our food order, which was mostly off the kid's menu, took almost an hour. It was a Friday night, however the dining room was not packed, so we felt with three kids, the wait was not worth it. Even our nine year old birthday girl had a sense we just paid a good price for a below average experience. We do like to dine in the village and would go back; just not with our family. I think we'd give them another try at the bar over drinks.
The restaurant was nicely decorated and roomy. The happy hour is very limited and our waitress failed to mention that the slider appetizer was a minimized version of the full price one. Two of the people I was with had to send their dinners back because they were served cold, We ordered dessert and coffee and the coffee arrived a full 10 minutes before the dessert. Fortunately, they had made a fresh pot, so the coffee was good. The fish fry was pricey, we thought. One person in my group thought that all the meals had too much garlic. I like garlic, so it was not a problem for all of us.
Nice menu with lots of meat-free options. Appetizers and main dishes were served exceptionally hot, straight form the kitchen (yum!). Draft beer selection was limited ... would like to see it expanded with local craft brewery offerings.
Excellent service, terrific food. Didn't know it existed, and went with a business group by chance. Great experience overall. Glad to know it's close by, and we'll definitely be back.
We usually enjoy ourselves here - but this time, our group received the wrong order...not just once, but twice. And, when you are paying $12 + for a cocktail...that is really upsetting. If you cannot deliver the correct drink - do not charge a price as if we are royalty. For that price, we expect to enjoy the drink we order.
Loved the menu. Ordered 3 small plates to share then each of the 5 had entrees. We appreciated the vegan and gluten free choices.
Everything was delicious! Very surprised it wasn't more crowded on a Friday night.
Firefly was a great delicious, unique, and local option to bring our out of town business guests. Steakhouses are outdated, and guests like to experience great neighborhoods like the Tosa Village! Can't wait to return!
We had an enjoyable experience celebrating a birthday. Our server was attentive, pleasant, and overall wonderful!
Nice place, great service, only had appetizers and a drink but both were delicious. Would definitely come back for a longer dinner.
We were seated promptly, service was fast, drinks and food were brought out quickly despite being very busy. Food was delicious, the mushroom risotto pops were amazing.
The burger was excellent. Brussel sprouts were super tasty. Our server was a delight. Will return.
First time here. Good food with nice ambiance.
I have generally had good experiences with the restaurant; however, Mother's Day brunch was a pain. It took an ungodly long time to be served, and each course of the 3 course meal took about an 45 mins. I had a 2:00p reservation and left after 3:30 without having been given my 3rd course (dessert). The menu omitted the addition of sausage in one of the main dishes, which is very important to mention since some religious group do not eat it. Water was not refilled in a timely manner, nor was coffee. Again, I've generally had good service here before, but that specific day was terrible.
We went to Firefly for Mother's day brunch, they had a fixed menu. Food was good, nothing spectacular, but service was incredibly slow. They were not full of people, by the way, and the simple menu should speed things up. I didn't even wait for the leftovers that would be boxed... And quite overpriced, more like Bartolotta restaurants type of price range.
We visited for Mother's day brunch and were very pleased with our experience. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. The handcrafted cocktails and desserts were icing on the cake. I would highly recommend trying it if you have not been here.
Food was good, although I had the Pork chops and they said slight jalapeño seasoning in the panko mix....well, it wasn't slight, so that ruined it for me. But otherwise good. The only other complaint is that I ordered a Grey Goose Gimlet and it came on the rocks, muddled. Not what I expected.
Nice place. Great for families. We sat outside on the patio and it was very comfortable. We'll definitely come back.
Our server, Maxwell, was very accommodating and friendly. The menu looked amazing, but when several of our dishes came out, the flavors just didn't deliver. We tried two cocktails which, again, sounded good on paper, but were not as good as we'd hoped. We had to deal with a strong a/c system blowing on us throughout dinner, also. Disappointing visit.
This was our first time at Firefly Tosa and were one of the first guests of the evening. We chose to sit in the bar area and it was lovely. The drinks were great and the food was fantastic. We will certainly be back for date night!
The service was ok. There was no ADA access, the door was locked at the ramp. The salmon was cut thin and cooked too dry. More like fish jerky. Might consider going back, but not with a date.
Restaurant was very accommodating for our large group. Food came out in a timely manner. Our server was very attentive to our needs.
The food was fabulous! Atmosphere was excellent. I had heard about Firefly Tosa years ago. I am sorry no I hadn't tried it sooner. Don't miss out on this excellent dining experience.
I have loved Firefly since the first time I set foot in the place. It's warm and cozy, without being cramped. They serve creative craft cocktails that are delicious! In fact, my favorite cocktail was a Firefly creation. The food is fresh, well prepared and very well presented. I've never been disappointed here and have taken many friends and business associates. All of them have raved about it and also about the fact that they hadn't known it was there. Well, now they do!
Firefly was a great place for a large group to go out and celebrate birthdays! Great food. Good service.
Birthday dinner....beautiful place...great service....had our own little private area for 7 ppl...creme brulee was intoxicating!
Excellent fish fry. Superb service. Well made and flavorable food choices.
Very nice dinner and great service. Food is always amazing and love the garlic fries. Thought the drinks were on the pricey side. 4 cocktails with tip came to $41!
Firefly is delicious. Small plates apps were perfectly done and enough to share with the whole table! The entrees were great also - get the gnocchi with bacon - and the service, atmosphere, and location are spot on.
I put in a reservation at the Firefly for a surprise 25th birthday party. Everything worked out exactly as planned. They even put us in a private room off one of the dinning rooms. The food and drinks were delicious, and our waitress was extremely helpful and did not rush us. It was a great experience and I will definitely be back!
Great new find! I will definitely be back with my husband for date night!
Great food and a cozy atmosphere. Slow service and rude servers. Maybe we just got the one terrible server they have but she ruined our experience. No one from our group would go back considering how many options we have in the area.
