Reviewed May 11, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We discovered Dragonfly while our kids were in college; it's become an excuse to visit this great college town. Inventive rolls, gppd service and a bargain happy hour main Dragonfly a continuing favorite.

“Excellent if you like Sushi and this type of food”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We were celebrating my daughter obtaining her Masters Degree from the local university. To celebrate, I asked her to pick where to eat. Being from the West coast, we didn't have a clue about the local restaurants so we relied on reviews. We chose this place. I'm not a Sushi fan, but they had plenty of other options to choose from. We all enjoyed our meals. Our waiter, Christian, was so knowledgeable about what was on the menu and his service was top notch...For the 3 of us with drinks and tip came to $135. You decide if that's a good value or not. All I can say is that the food and service was excellent. If we lived in the area, we'd be back.

“Wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Out of the several dozen times we have dined at Dragonfly there has been only one bad experience, and that was quickly remedied by the management. The whiskey selection is unreal, the Sushi is fusion style and flawlessly prepared and the service is consistently on point. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“All around great place”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Stopped in here after a show at the Hippodrome Theater. Love the indoor/outdoor bar area, great ambiance. Bartender was friendly and quick with the food and drinks. I tried something new to drink and hated it and it was quickly replaced with something else delicious. The food was very good and quick to come out of the kitchen. Easy going, laid back but attentive staff. Price was great as we got there during happy hour. I'll go back any time I'm in Gainesville.

“Worth it for happy hour deals.”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

In general, this is an overpriced restaurant. However, the happy hour deals on food were good if you want to eat a little earlier in the evening. Note that the sushi is not prepared traditionally. The "block sushi" means that there is a lot of rice and very little fish relative to a traditional piece of sushi. The makis were better.
