Out of the several dozen times we have dined at Dragonfly there has been only one bad experience, and that was quickly remedied by the management. The whiskey selection is unreal, the Sushi is fusion style and flawlessly prepared and the service is consistently on point. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Stopped in here after a show at the Hippodrome Theater. Love the indoor/outdoor bar area, great ambiance. Bartender was friendly and quick with the food and drinks. I tried something new to drink and hated it and it was quickly replaced with something else delicious. The food was very good and quick to come out of the kitchen. Easy going,... More

In general, this is an overpriced restaurant. However, the happy hour deals on food were good if you want to eat a little earlier in the evening. Note that the sushi is not prepared traditionally. The "block sushi" means that there is a lot of rice and very little fish relative to a traditional piece of sushi. The makis were... More

If you want somewhere to go in Gainesville where you can get dolled up and spend some time downtown, this is the place. The service was good, the sushi was wonderful, and the drinks were delicious. I had an espresso martini and that thing was potent! I wouldn't go for a regular dinner night with so many other options in... More

Hands down a wonderful place to get dolled up with your friends or a date night and enjoy some fresh sushi and hot plates. Love the beef tataki for an appetizer, a nice kettle one martini to sip on and the short ribs to melt over. Atmosphere is high-end but with their renovations it gives a comfortable, rustic vibe to...

We visited late on a Saturday evening with a large group. The wait was long, but worth it in the end. We had several courses and shared many among the group. It was a great chance to try many different things, since the plates are mostly tapas style (small portions). That being said, the plates were not too small -... More

I wrote a review about this place a while ago during my first visit. I was highly impressed by the atmosphere and the food back then. During my last visit, I realized the restaurant had taken a different route. More of a college-oriented place instead of the modern/sophisticated place it used to be. This time around, I was very disappointed... More

This place was DELICIOUS! The drinks were fantastic, the food was amazing, the price point was perfect, and the ambiance was to die for! We sat on bar stools outside of the restaurant, looking in... it was GORGEOUS! It was the perfect Birthday Dinner! The staff were a little less than friendly at first but quickly warmed up after we... More
