Good Sushi Rolls in Gainesville

We had heard that this is the best sushi in Gainesville, and I will not argue the point. We were surprised by the quality and skill of preparation, above what we expect in this sort of town. Inexpensive, with excellent service. You can't go wrong if you are stuck downtown for lunch. There is... read more

Look, this place is great if you like their kind of menu. Their menu is boring to me. I am a sushi fanatic and honestly their sushi selections aren't diverse. Very boring choices to choose from so if you're in the mood for a fun sushi dish, this isn't the place. I do want to compliment their soups, they do... More

All of the dishes - tapas portions - looked so good we ordered too many. Should have stopped before the dessert (ginger ice cream with berries and fried banana with berries and ice cream). Everything we ordered was delicious.

My husband and I were just passing through Gainesville for a road trip from Chicago to S FL. Can't imagine any better sushi! Unique- signature items definitely worth it. Our server- Marlin- working his way through school provided us with GREAT suggestions plus was willing to adjust any ingredients. Can't believe this restaurant isn't in the TOP FIVE for this...

Nice atmosphere and good service. If you like variety and sushi you will love the Dragonfly. It is walking distance from the Magnolia Plantation B&B.

This is a very "urban" type of restaurant. We went on Saturday night and they were very busy. We didn't wait long for a seat and we were waited on fairly promptly. I'm not a sushi eater, so I found a few things for myself while the rest ordered their sushi. My only complaint is that is is served like... More

We have not been for months at this point which I don't intend on to let happen again. We usually go at least once a month now that we moved to the other side of town. Got our usual rolls which include the lava that they took off the menu for some reason but still make. Love it

Stopped here for cocktails on a visit to Gainesville and we were so taken with the atmosphere that we went back an hour later for dinner. Cocktails, tapas and service are all top notch! Nice atmosphere! We loved it. If I'm back in Gainesville, I'll be back at Dragonfly!

My wife and I are regular visitors to Dragonfly for dinner. Some of the sushi and other food is pretty authentic, and some is very Americanized. We like some of each. If you go early, the service is fast. They don't take reservation, so going at peak times can involve waiting.
