Me and my husband came here for dinner during our honeymoon and it was amazing. They made us feel special. Really paid attention to all the small details. Christian was awesome. Made us feel like guests not just customers! Thank you Firefly!

I decided to come here to celebrate our anniversary. When I made the reservation 2 days before I requested the Cabana area. We arrived 30 minutes early and checked in. They told us to hang around the bar until they'll seat us. When it was my reservation time, I checked again and they said if we wanted the Cabana it would be an extra 30 minutes or more wait. Since my date was hungry I asked for whatever open which was the patio area. It took our waiter a while to come to our table. So i figure we should just we should just order the entree as well. I also asked for bread since my date was hungry. The bread took about 10-15 minutes to come out, our soda drinks came out after the bread. I got the Market Fish and my date got the Mushroom Pappadelle. I really like my dish but the portion of the fish was small for the price. My girlfriend enjoyed her mushroom dish, we also got a free dessert since it was our anniversary.

Went here 1st time for anniversary dinner. I was a little concerned due to the negative reviews of some customers. Arrived for an early dinner and from the start, it was a pleasant experience. The valet was cordial. The hostess wished us a happy anniversary. We had drinks in the library that were superb. And the bartender was nice also. I have never had a better Long island iced tea. I knew getting to sit in a cabana was not guaranteed, but they graciously let us have one of our choice. The service was quick and friendly. Our appetizer was Fried Olives which was a pleasant surprise, very tasty. We took the waiter recommendations for dinner of the Tomahawk Steak and Beeler Porterhouse Pork. Both were cooked to perfection and tasted great. We were given complimentary Champagne and Butterscotch pudding for dessert. Even the person that cleared our table was friendly. The staff made our evening special. For those that love ambience and romance. this is the perfect place. My suggestion is have an early dinner at first seating for the most quiet time.

Celebrated my 5th wedding anniversary here and they made sure our night was special. They provided a champagne toast and gave us the best table in the entire restaurant. Food was great and the drinks were made to perfection. I would definitely come again.

We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Ordered Prince Edward island mussels in coconut broth & fried olives. Mussels were delicious! For main course, my wife ordered scallops and I ordered fish of the day, sea bass. Both dishes were very delicious. Our server was attentive and outstanding. Overall, it is a place we will absolutely return.

Absolutely the worst experience I have ever had using Open Table. If you interested in a glorified Applebee’s, this is your place. If you are interested in an absolutely arrogant management and front desk staff, this is your place. If you are interested in having a wonderful evening, I would highly recommend picking a different location. For the value, really any place but here

Maybe. Very noisy on Friday/Saturday nights which somewhat offsets good food & service. Requested cabana two days ahead & it was clear there was never any attempt to grant that request. Two cabanas remained empty during the entire time we dined. Upon inquiry, we were told we must have 5 persons for a cabana. Only saw one party of 5 that evening. Very irritating. No "requirement" was mentioned upon making reservation with restaurant hostess.

Waited 45 minutes even though we had a reservation, the hostess was EXTREMELY rude and showed no empathy, was told our appetizer would be free because of the long wait, but then the bill came and it wasn't. Instead of making a fuss about it because I was on a date and already frustrated, I just said "screw it" and paid. Will never come here again and will NEVER recommend. So extremely disappointed.

Was really lovely food was good and the server was so kind.
It was my husbands birthday so a nice night out.

Only negative was the bill, it was all mixed up with another table and I think we paid about $50 too much in the confusion. We got 2 x set menus, 1x pineapple cocktail and 2 beers and it was over $200 the set menu was $65 so it doesn’t add up, hate to feel ripped off but sadly that’s how I feel.

Besides that as a lot of the restaurant had the outside garden, along beams near a back fireplace we saw rats running across, which was a bit close for comfort, but I do understand, but didn’t like it either way.

I would go back as everything else was good.

The beautiful ambience is the main reason to go to Firefly. The food is serviceable, the service uneven and the noise level can make conversation difficult.

Had to wait a very long time past reservation time but the manager apologized and took care of our drinks, which was nice. Bartenders were great. The music during dinner was a bit too loud to hear each other talk but otherwise a great experience.

Fabulous venue, great atmosphere. Packed with people. the comp champagne was a nice touch! Meatballs and butter lettuce salad are delish! Scallops good, sea bass special was a definite miss. Service left a lot to be desired. That was the primary reason for the 4 stars vs 5.

This is a beautiful romantic location. Would not go here on a first date, you’d have to get very close or speak very loud for other person to hear you. We went on a Monday to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and they have live jazz playing. The atmosphere is perfect, exactly what I was expecting. I was snuggling close to my honey and talking in each other’s ear so it worked. The food was delicious although the Little Gem salad was our favorite. My drink was tasty and the service was ok. We would come here again, probably when they open for dinner .

We had heard about how lovely and quaint this was and it was better than our expectations. The buffet selection was outstanding, service and atmosphere was fun, intimate while romantic. The food itself was so tasty and I could not believe the amount of choices they provided. Pancakes are a must.... We look forward to going again-really soon!

I’ve been to Firefly several times and unfortunately it’s a hit and miss experience. The waitress was very nice but the server did not know what he was doing. This is not a fast dood restaurant so you don’t bring out the entrees whole the appetizer plates are still there and expect your first to hold them up so you can place the dinner plates. It was also way too loud so we could not talk unless shouting . The steaks were good and the desserts were okay.

We requested a table but they did not accommodate our request. The chairs are a bit uncomfortable but the patio is beautiful. The olive appetizer and watermelon salad were very good but the main courses were just average. I think this is a great place for drinks and appetizers but maybe not dinner.

Charming setting but music was so loud it was impossible to enjoy - it is not a disco, it is a reataurant. Drop that music down and it would have great value. As it is, would not go again.

Was for a birthday and the waitress never came around to deliver the check until about 45 mins after we finished our food. Slow to fill our drinks and she was rather unengaged and seemed more like we were annoyance. They finally brought the dessert menu (when we were waiting for the check) and at that point we were just ready to go.

Treated my parents for their anniversary and made a reservation here. My mom ordered the lobster and porkchops for my dad. My dad’s order were late and my moms food is already served, the server stepped up and followed up on the food right away. They didnt let him pay since the food was late and we really appreciated that. The service is A++! The food are great! Just right amount to have a dessert in the end, and some cocktails. Ambiance was really good and amazing over all vibe. Will come back for sure!

This was one of the worst experiences we've had at a restaurant in a log time. Our waitress, Fabiola, was great but the hostess was beyond awful. We are the first ones to arrive at 5:00, we say our reservation is at 5:30 and we can sit in the bar and wait. No problem, what's what we wanted to do. We checked in and she wrote down our information, sat us in the bar and we had a drink. 5:30 comes around and at this time 10 other parties have arrived, she proceeds to sit them and everyone else around us completely ignoring us. 6:10 arrives and still nothing and we are the only ones left in the restaurant without being seated. We go to ask her when are we going to be seated. She said, you never checked in and I didn't get a name so sorry I was busy with other people. We said yes we did, showed her where she wrote down our name ... and she said sorry. Many other people came in and I needed to seat them. None the less, we finally get our table as we are celebrating my husband's birthday, my husband wants the prefix and they say you can't order unless you both order ... okay and he asked if there are any exceptions and she went to ask and they said NO. Not sure why one can't order and the other one order off the main but fine. Then our filets and fries arrived ...COLD. Which to be honest seems like the constant complaint on YELP. Very disappointing visit, and we will not be going back or recommending to anyone.
