Our innkeeper recommended this restaurant. We enjoyed the veggie gyoza and a few signature rolls. Everything was delicious and it didn't take much to fill us up. Would definitely come back another time.

Excellent restaurant with trendy Fusion atmosphere. Good choices of sushi, sashimi, and other Japanese specialties, along with Chinese items. A bit pricey for the amount of food, but overall good value.

This is my second time eating at Dragonfly, it is a popular place with UF students. The sushi rolls were fresh and tasted great, we sampled several. Ate at bar which was busy, but bartenders were nice and the service measured up. Will be back soon.

I try to get here whenever I am in Gainesville. Always the best sushi! Great wine and beverage selection. Attentive service. If you remember the old menu and had favorite rolls that are no longer on the menu just ask. They will accommodate if possible. We got an old "Crunch" roll by asking. The wontons and dumplings are not to... More

My wife and I went there a few weeks ago for a special evening out and because we had had a very good dinner there previously. I called two days in advance to get reservations knowing that it is a very popular restaurant in town. I called twice mid-day and got a recording (you can't book on line) both times... More
