Dinner last night with a class reunion. Clean, excellent service and very good dinner. My wife had the salmon and I had the short ribs. Both were very taste and prepared very well. I felt it was well prices and a good value.

Have been to the restaurant many times and always had a great experience. Perhaps, April 16, was just a night that was a bit off. The seafood stew did not have much flavor. The waitress was competent, but never smiled or made you feel welcomed..

The answer to that question is most often Firefly. Attractive space, quiet, friendly service, varied menu, good price/value ratio and nice wine list. The owner is there and engages diners, it's a go to local choice.
