Known for the fried chicken which they regularly run out of on weekends. We were a group of 8 and enjoyed our dinner and time together. Waiters were responsive but not so knowledgeable on the wine selection. Most dishes are on the heavy side so...More

The food is excellent, the service is neighborhood friendly and the room is lovely. This isn't super fussy pushing the limits cuisine - it's just a great place. Eat at Firefly, enjoy yourself.

Delicious food. Try the Mexican corn and radish dishes to start. Brazilian seafood and squash dishes were amazing entrees and for dessert the crepes and the bread pudding were to die for. The s'mores were great too! And ask for Jane as the server.

Firefly is one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. I have been visiting it for 15 years or so, which is testimony to its consistency. The food is always seasonal, inventive and well prepared. The staff are always excellent.

Menu is always changing depending on the seasons which is great. Place is very romantic and intimate. A great place to talk and dine well. Quaint, original and not replicated. Food is just AMAZING and desserts is always a must.

We found this restaurant whilst looking for a passover meal. However we thought this was probably one of the best meals we had eaten whilst in America (not just during Passover!) The food was extremely tasty and the service was great. Higly recommended!
