Best Sushi in Gainesville

When you go here there are a couple things to consider. 1. the Hokoboxes (spelling?) beef or yellow tail - melt in your mouth 2. Dragonfly roll, the best roll that you will ever have. 3. Short ribs - carnal pleasure. Dragonfly feel hip and happening. The style is amazing, its fresh and... read more

We stopped for supper looking for a decent place to eat on the last leg of our family road trip. Did not see this on Trip Advisor but discovered it once in town. Wonderful sushi, helpful staff. Folks were in casual to dressed up.

Honestly I am not a fan of sushi, but my daughters love it. I order noodles instead. The food is good, but the pace is hurried.

I really wanted to like this place. I have friends who rave about it. Unfortunately on my first visit after standing patiently for ten minutes at the hostess stand, another group walked in and was seated ahead of us without the first acknowledgement that we were there, and when she came back and asked the people next to us,

I've only been here once but it was phenomenal, I couldn't stop eating even after I was full! The edamame was delicious, the volcano roll was unbelievable, and then we had some puffy pork things that were crazy good. Definitely try this place if you're in the area!

No doubt a popular place as it was crowded..but little happening in Gainesville. My first visit had unagi sushi, salad, saki. The unagi was fine, though just 6 pieces vs. usual of 12. Not impressed. Absolutely nothing to distinguish the place from any other.

Having worked in various sushi restaurants in Miami I can say that Dragonfly exceeds Modern cuisine standards. Not only is their food menu versatile, fresh, and bold but also their drinks! Servers and bartenders are knowledgeable in great combinations and the interior design if the restaurant is very chic adding to the American-Japanese fusion.

Their sushi is fantastic! The only issue I ever have with this place is that the portions can be incredibly small.

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 a courthouse nearby, resulting in the... More
