Here's the thing, Dragonfly is a downtown bar and restaurant, so it gets a lot of hype from the UF students and visitors. It's a nicer establishment and has that sort of uptown feel of a more expensive place. And while the quality of the fish and other ingredients is in fact high, Dragonfly just doesn't live up to the... More

One of G-ville's favorites! What a great tasty meal we enjoyed sitting at the bar topper outside. It'd been too long. We feasted on excellent shrimp tempura, pork spring rolls, edamame and a crab Rangoon plate. Quick service and the place is hopping downtown. Trendy cool.

I took a couple from out of town and they still say this was the most unique shushi experience they have had. Fresh food, great presentation, and of course taste.

If you are in Gainesville and like sushi: this is the place to go! I often go during the week for Happy Hour: they have dumplings and sushi rolls for less. I always enjoy the warm spinach salad with macadamia nuts. The atmosphere is great: I never get tired of this restaurant. Great people to look at and very friendly... More

Great selection/menu, from sushi to set menu. If we go from work for a group lunch, several of us order a couple rolls and split them - or some get the set meal, individually. Beautiful, urban design inside. Always a treat!

Looked it up on line. Looked good. Was told by server that platter I ordered did not include miso soup or salad but he would give me soup. According to online menu it did. Salad was good, wifes meal was good. One piece of nigiri I ordered was the skin of the fish, and impossible to even chew.

Long-time king of downtown sushi has evolved over time, branching out to include more entrees, more novel sushi creations, more craft cocktails and more unique flavors. Kind of expensive, great place to bring your parents or a business dinner

We took our son to Dragonfly to celebrate his birthday. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. They have a lot more than sushi, so this is a great choice even if your group doesn't include sushi eaters. This was the perfect place for a celebration. The restaurant let us bring in a birthday cake which made a wonderful end... More

Wasn't expecting this level of sushi in Gainesville but was overwhelmed at how good it was. Had the black n' blue roll, tuna flat bread, and the bomb. All were outstanding! The ambiance is upscale and service was fantastic. We will be back!

Was in town on business in Gainesville and co-workers wanted Sushi. Since this was my first time I was a little nervous. Started with pork dumplings. They were amazing so we ordered another batch. I can't remember what sushi was ordered but we ordered two and split it between us. We couldn't finish everything because we were so full but... More
