Firefly is the manifestation of the dream of a couple of idealistic romantics, and we've spent the last 17 years pursuing the realization of that dream. Our mission is to provide a dynamic neighborhood restaurant with excellent and sustainable food, rooted in the familiar with world touches, and genuine service with intention and generosity.
Firefly reminds me of the Blue Jay Cafe (also in San Francisco, on Divisadero) but more expensive and a little nicer-looking. Both serve home-style food, with Firefly being a bit more refined but also a bit more expensive.
Firefly feels comfortable, as if they remodeled an old house and made it into a nice eating space. Every dish was great, especially the appetizer of goat cheese encrusted in pistachios and served with a little salad of greens and strawberries in a light vinaigrette; wow.
Staff was low-key and friendly; the ambience looks like a nice-but-casual space.
I would go again and again, but not every day if only because of the cost (for my budget, it's not every day food prices).
