A reviewer said it was the best sushi in gainesville. That part is obvious - not much to choose from here. But in terms of sushi - this place really takes it up a full notch. The presentation, the style of sushi - it is really beautiful and incredibly tasty at the same time. The apricot dumpling appetizers are delicious... More

I absolutely love sushi, and after moving to Gainesville, I knew I needed to find a new go-to Sushi restaurant. By far, the dragonfly roll was my favorite. It goes without saying that this roll had an impressive amount of fish, and was extremely fresh. I must say, I've never had another roll like this before. The sauteed butter edamame... More

Its a nice place to eat Japonese food. I do not like these kind of food, but you may order different dishes with beef, like NY Stake or rolls without fish! The wine is also good!

Located right in the heart of downtown, great ambiance, service, price point. Their menu provides choices for the adventurous and the conservative. I've eaten here many times and continues to impress. My favorites: the dragonfly roll, the hand rolls, whatever short rib or wagyu yummyness chef Ray has come up with and of course the drinks. D-fly is not short... More

This is the second time I've been to Dragonfly and I've been equally impressed both times. The sushi is delicious. Loved the Volcano roll. Atmosphere is trendy, urban. You forget you're in Gainesville.

Brought the family her for dinner on a game day weekend for the Florida Gators. We ordered appetizers which came out quickly. The sushi rolls were very good and plentiful. The restaurant filled up quickly which speaks volumes. Service was just average. I thought they could have done better. Overall a good dining experience.

We had a great meal there this past week. Nice outdoor sitting arrangements. Delicious and creative sushi offerings, very fresh tasting seaweed salad, great Ramen dish for noodle lovers, some of the best vegetable dumplings I've ever had. Service is fast and friendly....would definitely recommend if you are in the downtown area.

We always have a meal at Dragonfly when we come to see our son in Gainesville. The restaurant has a slick modern decor. The sushi is fresh, inventive and well presented. Very nice choice of saki. The service is generally impeccable even when they are very busy (which is often!). It would be a great place for a date or... More
