We were there for brunch on Sunday so I can't comment on weekday meals.

My fiancé and I went out for Valentine’s Day and the staff and mood was superb. Our waitress was so sweet and attentive. The food was delightful. We’ve only been there once before for drinks but will definitely keep Firefly in mind when we want an “extra special” night out.

Certainly a pleasant spot with a nice staff. The value was surprisingly good, which explains why it was quite crowded so early in the evening.

The food was delicious as always. Our server was having an off day to put it kindly. My husband’s drink was lacking simple syrup but they replaced it with a different drink. We will return and try it again.

We order a bottle of wine and after a long delay found out they were out of the one we ordered. So by the time we got the second it had been quite a wait. Then she broke the cork off in the bottle and had to take it to her manager to open. So quite the delay. We saw her waiting on many others and just not getting to us during this time. One of us had ordered the filet and she never brought a steak knife. The butter knife was just sawing through it. Finally flagged her down and got a steak knife, which worked much better. We had requested low top table on the open table app and we were seated at high top so our request wasn't even acknowledged.

We made a reservation for 6:15 pm. The restaurant was very busy. After waiting 10 minutes, at the most the manager offer to pay for our drinks. We were seated no more thatn five minutes later. The server reminded us about the drinks too. We will continue to go back!

More like a bar that serves mediocre food, not a restaurant with good drinks. Get the apps and drinks. Maybe a burger. Brunch was yuck

Since I made a reservation in advance for a party of 8 I expected to be seated in the main part of the restaurant, but instead we were seated in the bar area. There were people playing an extra large game of Jenga right next to us and every time the blocks came crashing down the people would all scream and we would all jump ten feet! We also had a hard time hearing with all the noisy conversation around us. This was supposed to be a family birthday celebration and instead it felt like we were in the middle of a loud bar. I'm very disappointed and I won't return.

Took a friend out for Birthday dinner. Arrived at my scheduled time and was seated in less than 3 minutes. Food was great, drinks were well made. Staff was AWESOME! Great service and never left wanting or waiting for anything! Highly recommend!

We loved our dining experience at Firefly. The four small plates we tried were all very good, and actually too much to eat between the two of us! Waitstaff were super friendly and accommodating.

Soup was very good. Overly priced glasses of wine. Should have house type wines at a lower price. If you did it was not on the wine menu.

Food was solid, Small plates were good, maybe closer to upscale appetizers. Service was excellent. Kind of dated decor. I would go again.

Food and drinks at happy hour were great. Our waiter was a bit scatterbrained though (brought the wrong items, gave our items to another table, etc.)

Good place to eat for the money .
Atmosphere is probably better than the food.
The food was OK, neither stellar or horrible.

Normally a really good place but on this visit the food took a really long time to come out and when it did one of the plates was cold and had to be sent back. Still love the place but it was disappointing as we recommended this place to family and it was their first time being there.

The overall experience was great! Great location and good ambiance!

The food on the other hand was not. We ordered a hamburger well done with truffle fries plus fish tacos. When the food came out, the hamburger was pink and the truffle fries were cold. The fish tacos were ok.

They always have great sushi! My friend likes their sweet potato fries and I like their regular fries! 3 of our entrees came out at the same time and the 4th came out 10 minutes later but my friend let it go because it was a great pork chop special! Every time the food is great!

The food was good but the service was horrible. We waited 45 minutes for 2 simple egg scrambles. It was busy but the kitchen had a terrible time keeping up and our waiter was clearly paying more attention to large parties ordering a bunch of alcohol.

Service was really poor. Very slow.
Also - I had been asked when making reservation whether I wanted regular or high stool seating. I requested regular but was seated at high stool table. I questioned waiter who offered patio seating as alternative. I opted to remain indoors.
FYI - they do not honor requests through Open Table for regular seating reservations.
