My wife and I have been going to the Firefly since it opened and visit fairly often. We love the owner Curt and the staff is great and the food is excellent. Fun place with a funky atmosphere features a seasonal menu with outstanding selections. The wine list covers all the bases and they also have an adequate beer selection.... More

The menu at this place is very interesting. However, I really wonder how they passed fire inspection with all the stuff hanging off the wall and other seemingly fire hazards in the restaurant.

This is probably my fourth visit to Firefly. On this occasion I was treated to a Mother's Day lunch by my daughter. I ordered what I always do...the vegetarian plate. The flavor and scrumptiousness of this eight item dish cannot be described. On this day they were serving grilled mushrooms, roasted asparagus, salad, and some sort of Morroccon couscous among...

My husband and I needed a snack to hold us over while we were out exploring. We stopped in to find that they weren't serving their lunch menu but offered an afternoon (limited) menu. Our server was an older gentleman, who quite frankly didn't look like he worked there, but more like a local who would be better suited sitting... More

Dinner at Firefly was delicious. The fun atmosphere and delightfully quirky decor made our anniversary extra special. I had the skewered shrimp and our friends had scallops and burgers. Portions were plentiful and everything was delicious. Our server was very attentive, and the winding pattern of the restaurant makes it easy to converse with each other, keeping the noise level...

Let's start with no one was available to greet us for several minutes. We are then seated & met our server. She was like grandma with a bad attitude (seems that the grandkids/guest of the restaurant had gotten on her nerves way before we arrived.) Requested a lovely vodka called Ciroc. She had to go find out if they had... More

Was looking for a good meal before going to late show at Bluebird Cafe...what a find! Decor was eclectic to put in mildly. Food was good & reasonably priced. One of the appetizers was a culinary delight...try the white cheddar & goat cheese mac...it was to die for! Half smoked chicken entree was wonderful also.

Traveling solo for work and wanted a local experience for dinner. 5 min walk from Courtyard in Greenhills area of Nashville( near Mall). Decor is super unique. So many eclectic decorations in this restaurant- it's like every holiday is celebrated, everyday. Food and Bev- hand written menus that seem to rotate by season. Firefly uses local provisions. I had the... 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.
