This was close to our hotel and was recommended by some locals. We really enjoyed the place. Food was really good, so many choices it was hard to pick just a few. Wish they had one of these at home. Definitely worth a stop!

Baked sushi roll and with bacon in it!!!!!..who knew??? The Volcano Roll is something the likes of which I had never come across before - it was delicious (maybe not the healthiest) but the tastiest :)

I don't know why this restaurant isn't number one in ratings, because it is the best Japanese cuisine I've ever had!! Well worth it! They take the time to make the food extremely delicious, easy to understand (ingredient-wise) and it is in a fun and laid back atmosphere! Worth every penny!

Great place well located. We had Saki but saw a lot of people with fun cocktails. Service was perfect. My husband order a risotto which was so delicious - unexpected for a Sushi place. We order multiple small dishes, since he does not eat seafood. My daughter order a Sushi with steak, avocado and blue cheese that was soooo good.... More

I resisted going to a restaurant named after dragonflies. BUT when I got inside, I discovered it was a different kind of restaurant: not only sushi, but also cooked tidbits ordered off the menu. It reminded me of dim sum but better. A line of cooks behind the long bar served up items and the waitresses took them to the... More

This restaurant has very unique rolls to choose from. My personal favorite is either the Crunch roll or the Godzilla roll. Must try the edamame with bonito flakes and brussel sprouts! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would change is the fact that they only have two vegetarian sushi rolls to chose from. Other than... More

My husband and I left the kids with grandma so that we could have a nice date, and chose dragonfly for dinner. We were seated promptly and I thought it was nice that they sat us at a small table in a room off from the main dining room, which was completely empty... at first. Within two minutes of being...

This is my second visit to dragonfly and i still can't see why it is so highly rated. The sushi was ok, frankly not that fresh. the rolls where small. Everything was overpriced and the place seemed to be trying too hard. The saving grace was that the service was actually quite good!

Some of the best sushi I've ever had. It looks--and more importantly, tastes amazing. The atmosphere is great, and the service is excellent as well. I only wish it were a little less expensive:D

Dragonfly is ok for people who are looking for a sushi restaurant that has fancy atmosphere, and sushi is adorned in a fusion type style. Having been to Japan and eaten the real sushi's of the world I prefer to go to places that have a more traditional approach to sushi preparation. In Gainesville there are two places that come...
