Firefly is in a busy section of Washington where there are many fine hotels and even more fine restaurants. Firefly is not a standout in this environment. The kale salad was nicely done but the beet and carrot salad was only mediocre. The Maryland style crab cakes did have lump crab meat but there was more of the filler than... More

Great service and great food! 7 of us came together at Firefly and had a great brunch. Lots of great things to choose from on the menu and the service was outstanding.

While visiting my son in Washington DC, we decided to try Firefly for brunch on a Saturday. We didn't have a reservation so we expected to have to wait because brunch is a favorite in DC. Anyway we walked into the restaurant at 11:30am, there were a few people waiting for the rest of their party in order to be... More

Firefly has a cute venue, good food but rough delivery. Took clients to lunch and expected much better execution. Manager came to the table and explained one dish wasn't prepared properly? Then the waiter came and said one of the other two dishes weren't prepared correctly? No matter, waiting an hour for lunch is unacceptable. Get your act together.

For me portion sizes were just right I has the steak and the rest of my family had the burger and fries. It was expensive as our total bill was $85 including tip and we drank water. The atmosphere was great and they provided our children with a sugar cookie to decorate. The kids meals were reasonable but I think... More

I had dinner with some colleagues last night and there was this pimento cheese on the happy hour bar menu. Our server was kind enough to let us order it even though we were in the main dining area. I'm from the south, I think it's the birthplace of pimento cheese and this was the best I've ever had! Sure,... More

Went here for a late-night dinner over the Memorial Day weekend with two other people. Ordered drinks - the size of the glasses can best be described as "teeny". We all had some types of salads offered. After listening to the specials, my husband ordered the fish (don't remember specific kind) "with roasted Brussels sprouts and potatoes". I ordered some...

Portion sizes small but expensive; didn't think much of this restaurant at all. They did provide the children with a sugar cookie to decorate which they then baked for dessert.

I've eaten here several times for breakfast and always enjoyed it. Highly recommend the BLT breakfast sandwich!

The atmosphere is very upscale but cozy at the same time. The cocktails and food were delicious and beautifully presented. This place could be good for anything from date night to a working meeting. It is a good volume for conversation.

Firefly, the quintessential urban neighborhood restaurant, offers contemporary American comfort food to the city's many 'regulars' who dine out several times a week. Enjoy favorites like our matzoh ball soup, mini pot roast and a variety of 'Urban Picnics' to share...or not. We also have many seafood and some vegetarian options.
