Very friendly staff! The food is awesome! We did have to wait for a table but well work the wait. They do accept reservations. Server took time to answer all of our questions about the different kids of sushi that they serve. If you love sushi then this is a restaurant you will not want to pass on.

Picked up my son from a great freshman year at UF, asked him where he wanted to eat, Happy, Happy, Happy he suggested Dragonfly! Sat at the bar and enjoyed wonderful suggestions and service from the TOP NOTCH BAR Staff! Their suggestions were spot on and the service on point! Great atmosphere even cooler menu! Great Job!!

I love this place. I travel to Gainesville a few times per year for work and often end up eating at Dragonfly more than once while I am there. The rolls are delicious. The atmosphere is inviting and pleasant. The staff are generally accommodating and service oriented. On this most recent trip I ate there both nights I was in... More

Entrees are tapas size, so you get to order multiple different plates for a complete dinner. We have been to the Dragonfly at least four-times and have never had a bad meal. The only bummer is that they do not take reservations on Friday or Saturday nights.

This place is beyond awesome, and i heartily recommend it. Sushi is all about the quality of the ingredients and the care in the preparation, and here Dragonfly hits it out of the park! Easily the best quality sushi I've ever had. (The tiger (tempura with a twist) shrimp was unbelievable.) We were here for a family birthday dinner (four... More

This was a surprising find, sushi in Florida's interior. What a great restaurant, which is nicely appointed with a contemporary yet comfortable decor, and it has wonderful service, even when crowded. I had one of their original and hand-crafted cocktails, plum sake with sage, and then ordered some rolls (two visits), the Katsura Fresh, the O-Renji, and another that was... More

Not the best sushi I have ever had, but it was fresh and flavorful. The service was great. The greeter took several pictures of our family which was really nice, since we all had not seen each other in 10 years and were excited to be together. Great menu selection. I would recommend.
