Success! Thanks for posting your review of Firefly Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Dusty atmosphere......

Came into the place, thought at first the decor was ok. The host or whatever was running around and we had to wait for someone to even acknowledge us. We waited, and then after finally being seen, we then waited for our table (yes we had reservations). We were shown to a table that was not cleaned, and after we sat there it was wiped down and new set up was put there. I looked up and there is this fabric ""decora... view more

Will Warm Your Soul

Fantastic food and atmosphere. Their fried chicken is to die for along with everything else. A nice blend of culinary cuisine and comfort. A must try.

Brussel Sprouts

Like many people I never liked brussel sprouts, they were always so boring, and bitter to me. However, Firefly changed that in me. We ordered roasted brussel sprouts tossed in truffle oil, seasoned lightly! You must order them, they are amazing! The entire menu is delicious, and it is constantly changing. I would call and make a reservation, we had to take a 5:30, which is when they open because nothing else was avai... view more

I still think about it!

It's been about 2-3 years since I've been at Fireflys. It's not because I didn't like the food; it's because I hope to try every restaurant in the City before I die. Here's the thing - I still think about the pork dish I had there. Scary, but it was THAT good. It was perfectly sweet, by-far the best pork I've ever had...EVER. My boyfriend got the steak and that was darn good too. We kept eating off of each othe... view more

The absolute best presentation and taste of the creme brulee.

I live in the Washington DC area presently but ate at the Firefly in 1996 when my daughter graduated from high school. I have never forgotten about that dessert

Pleases even picky eaters...

We took the East Coast in-laws to this restaurant, and despite their picky palates (they did not care for Chez Panisse, for instance) they LOVED this place! Fried chicken was excellent - pork chop was the best the hubby ever had - beef brisket plate was completely licked clean. We'll definitely return!

Great atmosphere, great halibut but...

This place has a great atmosphere. The alaskan halibut was brilliant. The signature fried chicken was good however, I think they pre-fry it and keep it warm. We sat at the bar right by the kitchen and I didn't see any frying going on. The peas and carrots it came with looked frighteningly like they came out of a frozen pack. If you're a nice restaurant try not to cut your veggies so they look like they came out of a ... view more

Nice atmosphere, food interesting

It is clear why people like the ""small town"" neighborhood feel of this restaurant, but the food was not spectacular. Portions appeared a bit small for being rated the best in ""comfort food"" category for me, but my fiance had the fried chicken and was satisfied with the portion and taste. Some interesting flavor combinations.

Limited menu offerings

We found the menu offerings to be too limited. To top it off, they had run out of the Osso Buco and the mashed potatoes (?) that went with the fried chicken. The halibut was exceptionally fresh and the fried chicken is tops.
