In town for a business conference and brought a group of colleagues for dinner. The owners opened the door when we got out of our Ubers to welcome us! We had a great table where we could talk and really enjoy ourselves. The wine list and bar menu were not overwhelming and the grapefruit fizz drink I had was refreshing.... More

I met out of town friends here this week and the food and service was great. We got the "Airline Chicken" and I hate every bite. I think their menu may change often. It was different from the last time I was there. They also have a different lunch menu. Desserts are awesome. I highly recommend the fudge cake that... More

The service was pretty poor. We felt like the venue was a little run down. Overall the food was pretty good, it just did not warrant the rave reviews. The pork chops tasted great, but the other dishes were just ok. There are better places to eat in Nashville.

Mediocre meal and service. Rushed food out, not cooked to order. All ordered different meals, none were noteworthy. Interesting decor with Christmas lights and prayer flags and other miscellany in cozy, cluttered atmosphere is the best part of this experience.

So small you miss it if you aren't careful. Don't be fooled by the size of it, what it lacks in space, it more than makes up for in the unique experience and amazing food. Very eclectic atmosphere that you won't find anywhere else. If the truffle mac n cheese is on the menu, don't pass it up! If you... More

Our B & B owner recommended this restaurant to us. We were not disappointed. This is a local type of restaurant, unique decor and food to die for. I had the duck and my husband had the pasta special. Both were plenty and delicious! I would recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I stumbled upon this place during a recent trip to Nashville. It was an interesting restaurant to say the least. The tables are a little too close together, making it a little congested and hard to maneuver within the restaurant. The walls and ceiling are filled (I mean, really filled) with all kinds of different decor -... More

This fresh menu is full of surprises and flavors. I am amazed at the quality and the unusual flavor combinations. And the service is spot on and friendly.

We had a lovely lunch here with our two kids. I appreciated the "no cell phone zone" sign because it gave me an excuse to tell my kids they couldn't even ask to play on my phone while we waited for the food! Instead, we had a long game of "I spy" because the walls are covered in pictures, beads,... More

Firefly Grille was opened in the Spring of 2001 by Curt Cole, a born and raised Nashvillian, experienced restauranteur, and family man. Firefly is Curt's answer to Nashville's need for a restaurant providing high quality, sophisticated cuisine, without the fuss of the traditional fine dining experience. (Imagine wearing jeans and a t-shirt while eating a high quality filet...Isn't that the dream?) So, Firefly was born-a funky, cozy, and casual neighborhood restaurant, providing an eclectic, worldly, seasonally-changing menu with a southern twist. Firefly Grille uses high quality ingredients to create unique dishes, sourcing locally whenever possible. Located in the heart of Green Hills on Bandywood Drive, Firefly is about 300 yards away from the famous Bluebird Cafe, as well as a wide array of Nashville's finest local favorites. For fifteen years, Firefly has remained a local secret, voted "Best Neighborhood Restaurant" by the Nashville Scene twice.
