Worth every penny. My girlfriend and I started with dirty martinis and the fried green tomatoes. Tomatoes were decent, the martinis were excellent. She got the cheese plate appetizer for her meal, and I got the mojo shrimp. Literally everything on our plates was good--there weren't ANY disappointments The only warnings I'd give are these: the Firefly wouldn't be my first choice for a large group (it's just not set up that way), and parking is extremely limited. GREAT for a date.
loud, but great food. My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Firefly Grille. We took advantage of the 39.99 coupon, which is one of the best values in nashville. The cheese plate was amazing, the wine list was extensive (although I do wish that they sold more wines by the glass), and the menu was small but well rounded. The only reason that this did not receive 5 stars is that a overly simple, pedestrian salad was served along side my gorgeous gourmet entrée!
I was part of a group gathering there last night. The food was creative and everything was very good. I had a hard time deciding what to get because EVERYTHING on the menu sounded great. The servers were polite and helpful in picking out food/wine. The deserts were also amazing.
I will definitely be coming back!
coupon issue result of citysearch server issue. firefly grille has been trying to get new menu posted in order to eliminate confusion, our menu changes completely every three months, hopefully everyone will be able to view the spring menu before the summer one is being served, many thanks to citysearch for this confusion!
Great food, but I was miffed at their coupon trick.
Let's get the important things out of the way first. The menu is seasonal, and the food is fantastic--it's made with fresh ingredients and the tastes are novel. The portions are satisfying, and we'll definitely be back to try new selections.
The service is laid-back yet professional. Prices are reasonable, but I was a bit put-off by a tactic that I've never seen before outside of a used-car dealership.
I had never heard of Firefly Grille, but I saw a coupon for them in the local coupon magazine, so my wife and I decided to go try them. Coupons are like insurance for us-we use it the first time we go to a restaurant, and if we like it we'll keep going. If we don't like it, then at least we got a better deal than we would have without the coupon. Got it? Okay.
So the coupon advertised a "dinner for two" for $39.99, two entrees, a starter, and a dessert. it sounded like a great deal for a restaurant that our friends and the local press liked. The only catch was that in the fine print on the coupon stated that the entrees had to be under $17 each-fair enough. So we went only to found out that one entree on the menu was under $17-and that was the hamburger for $9.50. The starters averaged $10. So if you get two hamburgers and a starter, that's $29. That means your dessert would have to be $10 to even match the advertised "deal" of the coupon. We knew the menu wasn't a new one because the server informed us that it only had two weeks left and he was very ready for the new season to start so he could eat something different.
So basically, there WAS no good deal to be had with the coupon. It was a straight-up bait-and-switch tactic. I don't see why a restaurant that has such good food and ostensibly does good business has to resort to borderline-slimy tactics to attract new clientele. I know a lot of people wouldn't give it a second chance after that--I just don't get what they were thinking here.
Oh well, food's good and we'll be back, but we're forgiving people who just want a good meal on our "date night."
One of the best restaurants in Nashville. My husband and I go here at least once a week. The food is fantastic and we are both very picky. The atmosphere is cozy and the staff is very friendly. We love the seasonal menu. The pasta special of the night is my favorite and be sure to get the coconut cake.
Amazing Food. My wife and I have eaten here a couple of times and I have even had a planned event with some fraternity alumni friends. The crab cakes and mac & cheese apps are to die for, deserts are always good and the bartenders make very tasty concoctions. The main course menus change seasonally I believe, but there is always something to please everyone from vegetarian to complete carnivore. The staff knows the menu backward and forward and are always charming (very important in my opinion). The atmosphere is one that may seem Tinkers or Gypsy Queen was in charge of interior decoration, but oddly enough it makes for an entertaining evening. The price tag is very reasonable and depending on how extravagant you get with you selection of beverages, can range from 30.00 to over 100.00+ on a dinner for two. I would highly recommend trying this place out at least once, you may find that it is your date night favorite!
wonderful atmosphere. In the past we have been to the eatery several times. It has been 8 months since our last visit and we were very disappointed! The crab cakes use to come with rosemary bread, a side and small salad. Now for the same price you get 2 small crab cakes with not much flavor. Side salad was extra. We won't be back. Menu not very interesting either.
Great Place!. This is a wonderful place to eat! The atmosphere is casual- the food selection was excellent. You could dress up or dress down and feel comfortable either way. Our meal was fabulous. You might want to call ahead for a reservation on the weekend. Price points are good- considering the quality of the food. The bar has a great vibe as well- I can easily imagine meeting someone there for a drink. Lots of free parking! No valet hassle. I spoke with the owner- very personable. Our waitress was great, and I would call the cuisine high end southern with a twist? I am a vegetarian, and they accommodated me very well. My friend ordered a beef entree that had perfectly crispy green beans and- phillo triangles stuffed with sweet potato. This was my first visit, and I plan to make many more. I ordered an arugula salad with pine nuts and my entree was pasta with spinach, asparagus and mushrooms. The cheese plate appetizer is a MUST. I am so glad to have found this place. It's nice to have a restaurant in Green Hills that is not frantic. You can come here and just relax. All the employees seemed very happy- from the bartender to our waitress. That's always a good sign.
Great Place. I loved it here. Great place great atmosphere great people. I would definitely recommend to others. I dont believe anything would stop me from coming back for more. The managers are really nice and accommodating. We did not have to wait very long for anything. The waiters were on point! Simply put. THIS PLACE IS FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
