The food is quality prepared but not quality served. It's hard to enjoy a meal that will cost a c note when you are consistently ignored or neglected. The hipsters who run the show from 5 to 11 ought to remember they are serving retired professionals who dined there when it was the amazing La Roca. Next time I am in the neighborhood I will spend my dollars at Regent Thai which is absolutely excellent in every way.

Very charming restaurant on one of the hills above Noe Valley. Despite being gluten-free in everything, it's very refined cooking, all made with very healthy locally sourced ingredients. I had the Thai pork chop with delicious spaghetti squash coleslaw. The crab cake appetizer and the tostadas were also delicious. There are vegan, vegetarian and carnivore options. We were a party of 7, and everyone was delighted with their orders. Very good friendly service. The restaurant isn't immense so reservations recommended. Very well-selected wine list featuring California and non-California wines. A bit pricey but worth it.

Firefly is probably the best choice to dine in Noe Valley. Centrally located, with a diverse menu and decent choices for wines by the glass. The only downside are the relatively high prices ($$$) and some of the servers who at times have an unnecessary “attitude”.

Recommended dishes: pork chop; fried chicken.

Been here several times. Known for Brussels sprouts, cooked various ways. Food typically fresh and healthy choices. Everything usually very tasty. Staff great.
