If your looking for a great place for a lunch or dinner in DC, this is a spot to try. It's off the beaten path of Connecticut Avenue, but it's well worth the trip. It's a small and cozy spot that has an eclectic by enjoyable menu. You won't be disappointed.

Loved this lovely and friendly restaurant. They helped me to make my daughter's 21st birthday celebration special with complimentary glasses of champagne for the two of us. We had drinks and the cheese board and wonderful time after a busy day exploring DC.

This place has a fun, energetic vibe. The food was tasty and the service was excellent. The portions are a bit on the small side, but they are flavorful. Its not a culinary showcase, but there is plenty of comfort food and prices are reasonable. Nice place to go with some friends to enjoy the drinks and the conversation.

We went to Fire Fly with our daughter on Saturday Evening October 15th for an 8:30 dinner reservation expecting good things as the ambiance sounded nice, reviews were generally good and it was a short walk from our Hilton Hotel in DuPont Circle. The short story is the appetizer came out fast(delicious warm, salty-pretzel like bread, with a refill) but... More

Myself and my partner visited Washington for 3 nights arriving Sunday 25th September and on the recommend of Lonely Planet visited this bar pre - dinner nearby as it was supposed to be good for cocktails. They were out of this world! Brendan is not only a sublime mixologist but an artist and a perfectionist. I tried the "transformation" the... More

Excellent meal. Devils on horseback were amazing. Burger and pot roast both very good. Great service from Michael - friendly, attentive and really knows his food and drink. Letting kids decorate their own cookies is a nice touch and they made a fuss of our daughter's birthday which was kind.
