Expensive and not worth it.

Last night, My boyfriend and I decided to put on some fancy duds and hit the town. A nice restaurant was on our list of things to do. I was in the mood for seafood but since moving to Gainesville last May, I'm disappointed in the options that are offered. I know its the south but why does... read more

This place was the first restaurant I go to when I was moving to Gainesville. The food is good as well as the atmosphere. If you are looking for a night out with friends to dress up and hang out, that's the place. My favorite salad was the warm shiitake salad.

Always enjoy dining here while in Gainesville and this visit was consistent as always... Trendy place, lively and fresh sushi - what more can you want for? If you are a sushi snob then this is a good place... Close to U of F and relatively close easy parking nearby....

This very trendy spot in Gainesville does not take reservations on Friday and Saturday nights, so our party of 10 settled in for a LONG wait. Unfortunately, when we were finally seated, the server was very inattentive and the food was just awful. The Pork Ramen tasted like old, greasy fish.

The food is very good. I loved both sushi rolls. The spinach and mushroom salad was delicious, but had a little too much dressing. The wait was very long and there isn't much of a waiting area, so we had to wait in our car outside. It's expensive too.

In my opinion the most trendiest place in Gainesville. Food is freshly prepared to your palette. The Dragon Fly Sushi Rolls, Wagyu Beef Skewers, Short ribs, Brussels sprouts, shishido peppers, and vegetable spring rolls made to perfection! Atmosphere is very cool and service was very good. Perfect for a family outing before 8pm...after that the adults come out to play.

the spinach and mushroom salad of this venue. I agree.. Last evening we ordered three sushi plates, the salad and two glasses of house pinot grigio wine. Our efficient and pleasant server Tia was very professional and helpful. Like she told us that it was still Happy Hour and did we want some more wine..Nooo problem. All tasted fine and... More

LOVE Dragonfly sushi! The food is awesome and they always have special rolls that I like to try which are not on the regular menu. The staff is always friendly and the service is quick. If you come on a busy night the wait can be long but the food is definitely worth it!

Sushi artistry at it's best! Sake was very nice. We ordered 6 rolls and 2 appetizers for our family of four and were all thrilled. Some rolls (mango tango) were sweet, but all were excellent!

We have traveled to Japan and love sushi. Dragonfly is very good, but the atmosphere is not like Japan. In Japan, people are considerate and quiet. Dragonfly is noisy and rather brash. The food is great, but don't expect a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. It is not there.
