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

I've been here before and the food and service is consistently great! On this visit, I had the Mango Tango sushi which is amazing and another roll (can't remember the name) that the waitress accommodated for me with a substitute of grill chicken since the grilled chicken roll had been discontinued. My husband had sashimi and although the portion was... More

Dragonfly is the best sushi in Gainesville by far. It's perfect for a really nice date night and the cocktails are also good.

The service is always excellent and the waiters always offer good advice about what... More

Who would have thought that some of the best sushi in all of Florida would be found in a college town that's 60 miles inland! The sushi is fresh, creative and presented very well. Great service and saki menu too!
