“Not worth the hype”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Driving through Ashland & stopped for lunch at the Dragonfly based on the great reviews & awards this restaurant/chef have received. First impression 'hold your breath', the stale odor upon entering the restaurant nearly made me walk out but we were on a tight schedule. Restaurant was quite empty which probably wasn't a good sign. Our meals were edible (even though half was left behind), definitely nothing to rave about. The worse part was when the server brought over a trolley & lifted up the bench next to me & started dumping extra supplies into it. This could have waited until the restaurant was closed. Maybe this award winning chef should spend more time running his restaurant. Yuk!

“Very enjoyable dinner”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

We had another great experience at Dragonfly! Jonathan Hall provided excellent and knowledgable service - wine comparisons, dietary modifications etc. he gave us tastes of several wines to help decide.

All of the dishes we ate were outstanding. The beef was grass fed and tender. One of my party had what she described as the very best hot chai tea she has tasted for a long time.

We will be back!

“Never quite lives up to potential”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Have never had a bad meal here, but have never had a really great one either. Food is solid and atmosphere is nice. Just nothing really special here. Will probably go back, but not a top choice for Ashland.

“Ride the Dragon”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Dragon fly is known for its perfection. The chef won chef of the year in Ashland for three years in a row (I think) and then became a judge. Unusual dishes. Always a treat. Fun, if not sarcastic, staff who make the evening more enjoyable. Summers you can sit outside. Good value for your money.
