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.

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.

I have been going to Dragonfly since they opened in 2000 - Needless to say, I love it! I now live in Austin, TX, but make a point to stop by every time I'm back in town. Their menu is inventive, palate pleasing and always fresh. The food is served as it is prepared, so it is not uncommon to... More

We used to go to Dragonfly quite regularly, but then we moved to the other side of town and found Fuji Sushi, and haven't been back for four years. So, we decided to give it a try again and went with some friends last weekend. We found that the menu was completely different from when we last went years ago.... More

Just about every single roll I get here is amazing. Just be careful ordering, as a few rolls could easily set you back over $50.00. The staff is friendly, the ambiance is very apropos, and the food is amazing.

Walked from hotel nearby for late lunch. Do agree that menu can be confusing. Our server was very helpful explaining certain selections and letting us know her preferences. Food was delicious. Liked that this place offered such different choices.
