I have been going here for like ten years. They are the best in Gainesville. Their Sushi is true, the service is dead on perfect and the sake choices are all my favorites. It is a obvious win. If you don't like Sushi your missing out.

We went as a group. Our order consisted of appetizer, drinks, and entree. We ordered from the sushi bar, the season special and the rest of the menu. The season specials were very expensive, but well worth the cost. The sushi were excellent. The Alaskan crab legs were tasty. Overall all an excellent experience. We will continue to go back.

Everyone we know always raves about Dragonfly when they visit their kids at UF and now I know why! We finally went there for dinner this weekend and the food was great! I especially loved the Bomb Roll which had shrimp tempura, crab, avocado and tuna with eel sauce, and crunchy flakes on top. The prices were reasonable and the... More

This is a nice place downtown, popular with younger people. They had a nice selection of sushi but appetizer size portions at full meal prices. The wait staff was very nice and helpful. The food was good, but if you are hungry it is not worth the price you will pay.

My favorite is the bomb roll, it is amazing!! The crispy crunchy roll is a good roll to share as well. Their ginger salads are also good. The servers are friendly. I try to make it here for lunch once a month. It is delicious!

Always quite popular but worth the wait. We found that the sushi was authentically prepared and quite tasty. Very good selection. If you have some time for a leisurely meal I highly recommend this restaurant. The only down side is that it is rather expensive even for sushi.

Love the food here. They knocked my sock off. From hamachi appetizer to Wagnu steak and I love the pork belly ramen!!!! To die for. However,. The host tonight is not very present. She wants to sit us in two top table which I understand since it was only me and my boyfriend. But table was too small so we... More

Make sure to make a reservation, it's worth it. Great variety. Very noisy, but that's because it's always very crowded.

One of the reasons our family looks forward to our visits in Gainesville is to enjoy Dragonfly Sushi! Always fresh! So many options! I was informed that Dragonfly opened somewhere in Miami, and I am hoping the quality is the same as the restaurant in Gainesville!!!

Thank jsskatz
