Came at 7:30 waited for a half hour for to get in. Loved the ginger salad and the big boss sushi. Good waiters but I'm giving them four stars bec I think even though I liked the food I shouldn't have to wait twenty minutes after I already ate the appetizer and the main course

Been coming here for the past 4 years on visits to Gainesville and the sushi is always wonderful! Mango tango has always been a favorite!

Our waitress was nice, but she rarely checked on us and it took forever for her to get us drinks let alone take our order. The sushi was delicious which is what earned them 4 stars. The menu was kinda pricey. Although we enjoyed our meal, I'm not sure that I would come back unless it was with a group... More

Excellent food today at Dragonfly. We have Steamed Buns, Tuna Flatbread, and Salmon skewers. Miso soup and salad also. Water was kept filled, as requested. I love this restaurant. I must mention that the service was indifferent today. Quite unusual for this place. She was mumbling and did not really seem to want to be there, which is definately not... More

Met my friends here for sushi during finals week. Excellent atmosphere, better sushi, great drinks. Edamame here is excellent. Start with this, order a martini and 2 sushi rolls. You will be happy. -Blogger AM21

This restaurant is well situated in Downtown Gainesville. The interior looked reasonable, and clean. The food seemed to be a variation of authentic Japanese food, and must have evolved to accommodate the taste of people not familiar with the original. Prices are on the high side, but not too bad. They had two TV monitors that showed the Seven Samurais,... More

Anytime I am in the area, I make Dragonfly my dinner destination. The best sushi I have ever eaten. Laid back vibe and inviting atmosphere. The waitstaff is professional and friendly without being intrusive. The menu is varied and everything I have tried is amazing. Highly recommend this spot.
