Strolling along New Hampshire Ave ME and happened on this amazing bar. Popped in for a quick beer but before ordering watched the bar tender / mixologist make up some amazing cocktails. So ended up having a few of these instead. He makes his own...More

Firefly has a surprisingly unique menu, expectations were new takes on southern classics, but the Latin influence seems predominant, and well executed. Cool ambiance is a bonus, but avoid the window table, it's kinda loud right there.

I was disappointed. Good arugula salad, but my main course was not as described in the menu. Really, substituting corn for fresh garden peas and pea sprouts??? And not mentioning that when i placed my order? Wait staff was super nice.

Matthew B, General Manager at Firefly, responded to this reviewResponded 3 weeks ago

Hi, lollydOlympia, thank you for your feedback. I apologize that the menu was not updated when you dined with us. We recently made the change to fresh corn as the spring peas on the menu are out of season. I apologize for the confusion.

I'm not accustomed to raving about breakfasts, but the ones we enjoyed at Firefly were first rate. Perfectly poached or scrambled eggs, delicious meats, fruit, potatoes, toast. Friendly staff too.

We stayed at the attached hotel and wandered into the bar at Firefly for a drink. What an unexpected gem to stumble into; we ended up spending half of the night there. We tried most, if not all, of the craft cocktails on the menu...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!

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.
