We came to Gainesville to meet our son after his springbreak. He wanted to go to dragonfly. Though I'm not a sushi fan, we wanted to take him somewhere he liked. We were told by the hostess it would be a 10-15 minute wait. We...More

I love japanese food, in particular sushi. Dragonfly did not disappoint. We were quickly seated and our server promptly came over to take our drink order. He also proceeded to explain that it was a tapas style restaurant, which frankly concerned me. When someone says...More

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.

We came on a Monday, we’re told a 35 minute wait which was nearly a hour. Beyond that, things were great other than the drink prices which were very inflated. Sushi was great and flavorful.

Our son first introduced us to Dragonfly Sushi. I had to let him order for me, as I didn't know what anything was. We had a sampling of several things, names of which I do not remember, but everything was great.

Best sushi in Gainesville. The service is sometimes slow, and there is usually a wait. The sushi never disappoints. It’s always fresh and delicious. My fave is the Cobra Kai and Fresh Garden.

When we ate there, they were offering to go boxes for uneaten portions. Since we did not order our food to go, I can't say definitely, but I would be surprised if you could not get a meal to go (assuming you pick it up at... More
