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.

I asked for a table to be made up outside even though there were limited diners outside. They easily accommodated my large party. Appreciate the special service. It was a special occasion.

Great restaurant for a casual meal or appetizers/small plates at the bar. big variety of small plates, reasonably priced, good sized and always good flavor and quality. The sushi is also some of the best in town. We had the dragon roll sushi, fish and chips, and white fish this time, all were very good. Energetic atmosphere and you can either be at a restaurant, or bar atmosphere, depending where you sit.

The food was tasty, sushi was yummy. The server was friendly, but our service was extremely slow. we we’re there over two hours. I’m guessing they may have been understaffed.

Love Fire Fly! They really have a great variety to choose from and it’s all so good. I appreciate the budget items if u aren’t wanting to break the bank for a night out, but also love the higher end options. No matter what you choose tastes great! Fun atmosphere, not too loud or dark, and in a great part of town with easy parking and close proximity to stroll downtown when you are done eating. Especially love going here for the small plates. It’s fun to try multiple dishes and split between two people.

Fantastic and creative drink menu - especially loved the Blackberry Bramble. We loved the small plates. The steak skewers was delicious with the sweet potato fries and the chimichurri steak with truffle fries was out of this world! We also enjoyed the lettuce wraps which have a Chinese five spice flavor that makes them different from your usual lettuce wraps. The sushi roll was good, but the other small plates we had were much better. Loved the atmosphere and service was great despite being pretty busy! Would definitely recommend and go again!

The server wasn’t interested in our table nor that we came for a celebration that was the reason I made the reservation m. My daughter turned 18 and server was barely around and never ask how dinner was or if we needed anything. To many great places in TC to have service and food quality like this.
