Unpretentious, delicious, personable. Service is great and food is tasty while also being creative. Tip: sit at bar to chat with bartender and get a great view of restaurant and kitchen.

So glad I went back. My old neighborhood restaurant is still great. We shared and still had leftovers to take home. Maybe because we tried the bread with spread. Warm salad with potatoes was memorable. Fried chicken was moist. Service friendly and relaxed. Overall excellent!

The food was good, not great and totally overpriced. We ordered a few appetizers to share, no main dishes and no dessert and were surprised when we got the check. Definitely NOT going back.

I had my farewell San Francisco dinner at Firefly in spring 2015, so this was my first return visit since then. It didn't disappoint. Both the service and the food quality were top-of-the-line. We shared a salad of curried roast beet, carrot, apple and chicory...More
