I have been here a couple times, but my last visit was through a company christmas dinner. I believe their was about 12-16 of us. Service was great, food was amazing! i had the prime rib - SO good. Considering we had a big party i saw no disruption in level or quality of service and food.

My husband and I found this little bistro during a recent weekend. I had a great veggie burger and lovely drink from the bar. They were both fabulous. My husband had the pad thai which was more standard. We tried to go NYE again but they were all booked up. You might call ahead on weekends that have holidays.

Grapevine was positive so we decided to give it a try. Definitely try the cauliflower latkes(pancake)-yum! Would never know it's cauliflower! Calamari was great. Tuna entree as well as everything else was delicious. And gluten free friendly. Wine list adequate. Will definitely return!

Went here for a family dinner prior to seeing a show hoping for good food, a nice atmosphere and reasonably quiet dining experience. What we got was so much more! The food was excellent, from the appetizers of Firefly Ramen and go-go bread to the entrees - filet mignon and grilled salmon, we were thrilled with both the quality and... More

I came here for lunch and wanted to stay for dinner. Great location and bar. Had the onion soup and spinach and goat cheese salad. Both were excellent. I recommend adding blackened chicken. The salad was more than plenty and the combination of sun dried tomatoes, olives, pine nuts and the cheese were worth coming. Here is a pic.

My wife and I came here after spending a full day moving into our apartment on Beech. We came around 8:45 or so and it was dead but service was unbelievably slow. We had the go go bread which was insane, highly recommend it.

Went to Firefly about 3 weeks ago. Service was excellent, our waiter was very nice and helpful. We had chicken and steak tips. I was pretty disappointed in my chicken and my friend was not so happy with her tips. I actually complained to our waiter that it was the toughest chicken I've ever eaten. Since I have been at...

I picked this restaurant to take my friends to on our college's homecoming weekend. We were all so happy with the choice. Great atmosphere, DELICIOUS food, and an excellent server. Lots of choices on the food and drink menu's. Can't wait to go back.

Great location, menu, plenty of parking available. My friend and I were in a hurry, and asked the waiter if we could make it a quick trip - we were out of there in less than an hour.
