Not good. This place has gone down the hill. The decorations are great, but the service is terrible, the food isn't very good and the drinks are watered down. What can I say? I can't spend my money there again.
When you read that the decor is funky, believe it. Be prepared. It looks like someone went into the attic and just stapled what they found to the walls. It is a bit of a shocker at first but as the night goes on, it creats really good conversation topics.
Once you have gotten over the tacky decorations, order all three courses. The food is amazing and you shouldn't miss out on any of it! Don't waste your meal on the hamburger, get adventurous and order one of the amazing creations from the chef.
The waiters seem a little funny in the head, but they are very well informed about the menu. They can help you with everything down to the wine selection. I was impressed when the waiter didn't suggest the most expensive item on the list. He really tried to find something that would meet what we wanted.
Though the food is amazing, the price is high. Be prepared to spend when you come. Believe me when I say it is completely worth it!
Great food with terrible service equals mediocre restaurant.. Many people go to Firefly for great food served in an unpretentious, relaxed atmosphere. We are no different. They have a fantastic chef and the menu is always interesting. Firefly is a must visit when we have out of town guests. There is a worrying trend happing over the past few visits. Waitstaff that would be unsuited to work at Shoney's! During our last visit with friends from overseas the waiter was wearing camouflage, mumbled ( a lip full of Skoal? ) from a menu that he obviously knew nothing about and served 2 our of 4 entrees that were wrong. Add reaching across our faces to take the dirty dishes away and never filling the water glasses and it was an embarrassing outing to a restaurant that we raved about. It's a shame to see the FIrefly tradition turn into this. Great food with terrible service equals mediocre restaurant.
Eh.. I really loved the atmosphere, but was very disappointed in the service. Our server had a ball cap on covering long hair and would start talking to us as he was approaching our table before we could even hear him. I also had trouble ordering because there really aren't many substitutions that can be made. Don't get me wrong, I respect a good executive chef, but some nights I'm just not in the mood for pork belly. Anyway... the food I got was very good, and the bartender was excellent- (we sat in the bar for an hour before being seated). Unfortunately service means a lot to me and because of our unprofessional server I will not be rushing back in the doors.
Used to be good. Firefly used to be really good a couple of years ago. I loved their hamburgers and they had the most charming menu. But recently, the food has gotten worse and the the last time I went in, the waitress treated my husband and I like we were a nuisance. We don't go there any more.
Highly Over-rated! Don't bother!.
How this restaurant ever got a good reputation in Nashville is beyond me!! I love dining out and have many favorites in Nashville, but this isn't one of them.
The menu is a boring rehash of last year's trends, and the food is not well-prepared at that. The service is horrible and the wait staff seem disinterested, bored and too busy to bother with you.
The only way I can think that Firefly Grille has such a good rating is that the owners and staff have stuffed the virtual ballot box. AVOID!!
I can't believe I had not been here!. My friends have mentioned Firefly Grille several times, but I'm really not in the Green Hills area very much and had never been there before. This was the best meal I've had in 2010! We started off with tuna tartar and a platter of exotic cheeses. Our server suggested an incredible wine and was laid back but very professional. Then, I had a scallop entree that I have to have again. I guess, I WILL in the green Hills area a lot.
Firefly; One of My Favorites!.
Just ate at Firefly last night and had a wonderful time once again. This time I enjoyed the pasta of the day, which was fussili with sauteed shrimp and veggies in a roasted red pepper tomato sauce. It was simply amazing!
The staff is always so welcoming and friendly, and the bartender makes the best drinks. I usually go for a manhattan. Dude knows his drinks. Definitely goin back again soon.
A true gem of Nashville!. I took my girlfriend there on Valentines Day on a recommendation from a friend, and Firefly instantly became one of our favorite places to eat in Nashville. The food was AMAZING. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The menu had a good selection of seasonal and fresh menu items that made it extremely difficult to narrow it down to 2 entrees. We can't wait to go back again soon!
For the perfect evening....
I bet there is nothing on this menu that would disappoint...
My boyfriend and I winged it on Valentine's Day, hoping to get in early at The Cheesecake Factory. Apparently a lot of other people had the same idea -- 2 hour wait! I'm so glad we didn't get in, though, because that led us to Firefly Grille.
Our server was excellent.. suggested a perfect wine, something I NEVER would've ordered, but it was exactly what I wanted. He was funny and helpful!
We started with the duck confit. Exquisite. I mean it was perfect, the boyfriend and I were licking our fingers until the main course arrived.
The main dishes were just as good, if not better, than the duck appetizer! We were so pleased with our meals, we just had to share with each other. After the main course, we shared a piece of cake from a local bakery that was the perfect ending to a perfect meal.
The price was right, too! For an appetizer, two entrees (with a side salad), a dessert to share and a $38 bottle of wine, our meal came to just over $100! Not bad!
