Stopped by on a rainy night. The wait staff was all very friendly and had great recommendations. Slightly unique and modern twist on sushi. Would go again if in town again.

Returned here with friends after a several month absence. Ate outside (much quieter) and had an excellent meal. (Much better than our last visit). Service was still mediocre but food quality more than compensated for the spotty service. We will return.

Every visit to Dragonfly is a new experience without disappointing--wonderfully fresh fish and incredible sushi. Do not miss the cucumber martini, one of their signature cocktails. Devoted following of young University of Florida students, faculty, and professionals make quite the scene in downtown Gainesville.
