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...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...More
