We went to Forefly at the recommendation of a friend who lived in the area and it did not disappoint. My wife and I loved the Chilaquiles dish, and were very happy to come back the next day for the French and Avocado toasts. The...More

My wife and I had a fabulous brunch to cap off a night away celebrating our anniversary. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes while my wife had the fried oyster salad and both were excellent, especially when accompanied by a carafe of mimosas! Highly recommended!

Decided mid-morning to go to brunch and was able to reserve a table (just in case!) two hours out. Love the style and atmosphere, and that it feels like part of the neighborhood. My second brunch visit here, and the mimosas were just right. Lemon...More

We stopped in here for brunch on a recent Sunday, and weren't disappointed. Despite the apparently rather crazy DC pricing, the prices here seemed entirely reasonable. We got some delicious, warm bread to start, and then I got the french toast with caramelized bananas and...More

We wanted a place close to where we staying in DuPont Circle. We walked and they seated us right away(we did have reservations ). Respsive staff, food was good but seemed a little pricey( although this may be how it is in D.C.).

Firefly consistently delivers. It has a great lunch menu, with things such as chicken mole tacos, truffle fries, gourmet mac and cheese, crab louie salad. These are some of my favorite things. And they really know how to execute. The food is delicious, though slightly...More

A nice neighborhood restaurant located adjacent to the Madera Hotel with good food, especially the pot roast, soup and the salad. Really liked the ambiance with the wood decor. Service was prompt and not intrusive.

Not necessarily, although always a good idea. Usually they can seat a couple, although during the busy period between 6 and 7:30, it could be tough. Four or more guests, always worth calling ahead.
