I didn't want to overlap my sisters with their French toast and tomatillo orders. I decided on a plain old hamburger and boy am I glad. The order was a bit long to arrive but my food was absolutely worth the wait.

I ate at Firefly for the first time. The menu was very unique and had non-traditional fare, so decided to try it out. I ordered the Vegetable Pot Pie - mushrooms, carrot, celery root - but was greatly disappointed. There was no cream whatsoever mixed with the vegetables - just dry vegetables under the flaky crust. I may have ordered... More

Brilliant food at a really reasonable price. I've been a few times over the past year and eat time has been great. The service is attentive and friendly, even when it's busy. The mains are great (granted I've mostly been during brunch) with really good portion sizes, so you won't walk away hungry. Absolutely recommend if you're looking for a... More

Their signature cocktails are wonderful. The food is excellent as well. The location is excellent, not too far from the DuPont Circle Metro line.

Really enjoyed a lunch and two dinners here. Loved the cornbread with honey butter; I'm a southern girl by birth so I always try out cornbread, if on offer. Enjoyed a spicy carrot soup. Black cod was excellent as was the chicken dish. Good service.

Good restaurant in a good location. Pot roast a speciality not to be missed! Really tasty. Chocolate desert with spearmint also yum! Great value with nice ambience and great service.

My team had dinner here recently based on a recommendation and the allure of a Gluten free menu. I was nice enough but the GF options more limited than it might appear. My non-GF teammates liked it nice enough, but at this price point I expect more. We had reservations and were seated quickly. They have a decent selection of... More

My favorite part about staying at The Madera is that I get to eat at Firefly. Everything I've had on the menu is excellent and the truffle fries are to die for. It usually has a pretty lively bar scene most nights which helps pass the time.

I've only been to Firefly for brunch and it feels like it may be the best meal for this restaurant. The decor is cozy and the service is good. The menu is typical for brunch -- the french toasts were the highlight. Go if you are close by, but I wouldn't cross the oceans for it.

Thank GoHeat
