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 matzah ball soup, mini pot roast and a variety of 'Urban Picnic’ items to share...or not. We also feature fresh seafood and vegetarian options that change along with the seasons. The menu is designed to utilize products from our local farms and farmers. Our specialty cocktail menu offers a bevy of unique libations that change with the seasons and is a direct reflection of the produce available from our rooftop garden. Whether you are enjoying a quick lunch during your work break, or looking for a romantic dinner spot in front of the signature tree in the dining room, Firefly is here for you.

OpenTable Diner (Washington DC)

This is my first time here. We had to change our plans last minute and felt lucky to get a reservation for five. All went smoothly at first but over the course of our first thirty minutes service became increasingly inattentive. Appetizers of American cheese plate and deviled eggs were satisfactory, although I am continually frustrated at a portion size of three for the eggs. It always means someone has to pass. Confound it, serve the other half! Took a long while after appetizers were served with to regain the attention of our server. Finally entrees arrived. Smoked lamb chops had barely a hint of smokiness and were almost well done. Same for the rib eye, ordered medium rare, but cooked almost well. The accompaniments were good, fresh and flavorful. Desert of chocolate cake was very nice, enjoyed by us all. All together good and bad. Probably won’t come back unless I happen to be in DuPont circle in need of dinner.

Our favorite thing about Firefly was actually the design -- the indoor trees and firefly theme (bills presented rolled in a glass around a small light) were charming, and the acoustics actually contribute to conversation rather than making it impossible. The food was good but not outstanding -- nothing we had would really draw us back there, but we'd happily stop by again if we were in the neighborhood. Best of our selections were the mini potroast, the soup of the day, and the Infusion 33 cocktail.

The shrimp and grits were probably the best I’ve had. My daughter had the Wagyu Burger and truffle fries. She devoured them, and loved every bite. Very friendly staff.

I enjoyed the unique flavors from the dishes that were ordered. I plan to frequent this restaurant more often in the future.

We chose Firefly for dinner based on its gluten-free offerings. Our server was very nice and attentive. We started with the kale caesar salad, which unfortunately was very salty and had more a vinaigrette than a creamy dressing (in which case I don't think you should even call it a caesar salad - it certainly didn't taste like one). We then split the pot roast, which is still making my mouth water because it was delicious. Then we finished with an amazing raspberry sorbet. Overall a good dinner and I'd recommend Firefly.

At last, a restaurant in downtown DC that has fine food and is quiet enough to actually have a decent conversation!!!
