We ate breakfast at the firefly while staying at the hotel. My son loved the french toast, which I tasted and it was delicious. He did not finish the large portion.I had an omelette that was good and way too big. Service was good, friendly atmosphere, fair prices.

This is a very stylist, urban-hip restaurant in the Hotel Madera Kimpton. Really great waiter and assistant. They both were attentive without being annoying, and our waiter also gave us some great restaurant suggestions for other parts of DC. The mini pot roast was absolutely divine! Fork tender, delicious!

A lovely, unique hotel! The staff here were very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious - particularly the truffle fries! Loved the way the bill came in a small jar with a candle! Would definitely go back!

Firefly, the bar and restaurant for Hotel Madera, is de-lish-ious! The brunch chorizo tacos and crab cake benedict were amazing. But best of all was the service from the bartenders. Ian was classy, professional and personal. Worth the hotel stay with just one meal.

We had a delicious and healthy breakfast. The housemate granola was perfectly filling. The coffee was amazing, and the service made it a delightful morning.

I was staying at a different hotel for business but decided I wanted to take the walk to Firefly as soon as they opened. 7am, I was the first customer. Got the whole place to myself. The tree sitting in the middle of the restaurant is quite soothing. I had tea, eggs/bacon, potatoes and English muffin (didn't like the muffin,... More

Your first impression on entering the restaurant that won't be a good one. The decor is kitschy, and not in a good way. The place is loud, servers not attentive and menus uninspiring. That said the food that is in the menu is delicious, prepared well with perfect seasoning. My burger with truffle fries was juicy, well seasoned, and generously... More

We started with the pimento cheese dip. It was really good. We wondered how much better it would have been served warm and with a variety of crackers. My daughter and I then shared the 8 oz burger and fries. The fries are excellent and the burger was cooked just the way we like it. We did miss the Nueske... More

Had a very nice breakfast at Firefly. Stephanie the server was just so sweet. enjoyed some pleasant morning conversation with her. She's been here 5 years. 😳🤗😮 Ordered the Chef's Omelette (mushrooms & cheddar cheese) with english muffin & potatoes. Tomatoes with balsamic reduction! PERFECT breakfast to revitalize a very fatigued body! Only thing I wished for was breakfast meats... More

$12 is too expensive for a kids burger and fries. Especially when the kids didn't like it or the sugar cookie. By the way, the cookie was the reason for choosing firefly. Be prepared to spend $70 for a family meal that's just ok
