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.

Her daughter and her boyfriend plus her daughter's father and his lady friend were to join us! Alas, excuses rolled in faster than the fog in San Francisco and my lovely lady and I ended... More

The flavors, freshness, cocktails and service are over the top. One of the top restaurants and best sushi in the Gainesville area.

This place is top notch! AMAZING SUSHI, beautiful ambiance and GREAT wine!!! When visiting Gainesville [which is often], I always have to re-visit! If you go, you will be MORE than happy!! If you are going to bring 'kids,' ensure they are older and can appreciate the food...it is a little bit pricy...but worth it!

The Dragonfly is very well located in the heart of downtown Gainesville and offers the best experience of Japanese cuisine in town. The staff is very well informed about the contents of the menu and do a great job helping, if you are not familiarized with it. The restaurant offers outdoor seating and a nice ambient for casual or formal... More

Had a good meal on a Sunday night. Good roll and chicken skewers. Service was very good and the atmosphere was vibrant. I would suggest this place for a fun night out.

Restaurant was recommended by our B&B Innkeeper for 3 reasons - we could walk there, their happy hour menu was phenomenal, and the food was great! So we did just that. She also recommended sitting outside in the bar area for good people watching. Another great idea! we had the crunch roll, bacon wrapped mushroom, seaweed salad with pine nuts,... More
