A word from Dragonfly Cafe and Gardens
Dragonfly Cafe and Gardens is set on the ground floor in a 1930′s Baptist church with the Oregon Cabaret Theatre above it, this restaurant couldn't be more charming. Whether you sit in the cobble-stoned, tree-lined secret garden or in the hexagon shaped dining room surrounded by French doors, this restaurant is a highlight of any Ashland Oregon trip.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great restaurant, great food, casual, relaxed atmosphere. Creative menu choices, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Four of us here for lunch this day, a couple of salads, an entree, and a sandwich later and we left happy and full. Food was excellent, server was great, explained menu offerings well. Definitely will return next time in Ashland, would try dinner next trip."

  • "We were seated in the left corner of the upper level. The crowd noise was very loud and apparently your out take fans were not working properly. My wife and I both noticed the cooking or food smells on our clothes after leaving the restaurant. We like your menu, it's different! Our waiter was very good. The restroom was clean."

  • "Although we love Dragonfly, it was not a good experience this time. Too too loud to talk, our food was 1 1/2 hours and then one persons was cold. We loved our waitress though and knew it was not her fault. We were given a discount and a free desert but we are reluctant to bring out of town guests there again. Maybe not during play season at least."

  • "Dragonfly is a great place for healthy interesting food choices. The service was good but the noise level a bit high. It's a wonderful place to dine in when the outdoor seating is available. Lovely outdoor patio!"

  • "Dragonfly is consistently one of the best restaurants in Ashland. Price is medium-high so we only go on special occassions, but we never have had a disappointing meal there. We have taken the grand kids a few times (2 and 4yrs) and it worked there better than most. Worth a try!"

  • "The Yelp and Open Table reviews were good but I was astonished at how much I enjoyed the food and cocktails. I enjoy fine dining and almost never give five star reviews but the Dragonfly cafe merits one. Service was attentive but not fussy. Every item that my date and I ordered was excellent to outstanding. My main regret is that I live 400 miles from the Dragonfly and so will not be a frequent patron although it is almost worth the drive to dine there. EZ John"

  • "We stayed 4 nights in Ashland Christmas 2014. This was hands down the best food we had during our stay. The flavors were very unique and every dish was tasteful. We had chicken wraps and calamari as appetizers and ahi platter and fish tacos as main. Everything was very tasty and the waitress was really nice and attentive. Don't miss out on this place while in Ashland!"

  • "We like the delicious, creative food and the ambiance but the service is painfully slow. First we waited for our menus. Then there was another long wait for orders to be taken. The waiter had neglected to tell us they were out of a popular menu item so one of our party had to quickly select something else. Then came the big wait...AN HOUR until our food appeared. When the food finally came, our waiter did apologize to one of the people in our party and didn't charge for the tea he forgot to bring me. The biggest problem seems to be that the kitchen is overwhelmed."

  • "We booked Dragonfly Cafebefore a show at Oregon Shakespeare Fest because of the many positive reviews it received on Open Table and Trip Advisor. Frankly, we found the experience very average and underwhelming. The restaurant itself is difficult to find. It is tucked under Ashland's Cabaret Theater, housed in an old church, with the entrance on 1st, rather than Hargadine, as the address states. Ambiance was average at best - probably the best you can do spiffing up an old church social hall. It was also warm, stuffy and loud. While service was good, the food and drink was average. Both of our dinners and cocktails were about what one would expect from a basic neighborhood restaurant, but nothing particularly unique or special."

  • "Frankly, I did not expect paper napkins. I expected cloth. From then on it just got worse. Trying to assemble lettuce wraps was more work than it was worth. My leather seat was cracked. No one seemed to really care that we were there. I would not go again."

  • "As we had tickets to the theater for an 8:00 performance, we arrived at 6:15, ordered a glass of wine each...and ordered. We waited and we waited. The waiter finally came by to tell us he'd dropped our dinners!!!!! and the kitchen was remaking them. As my husband had ordered the special we assumed it would be ready in no time. But no, we continued to wait...and wait... We got the waiter's attention, again, and were told the special was in the oven and would be done in 5 minutes. We waited...and waited...The waiter then came, said he would comp our glass of wine and that the kitchen staff was now plating our dinners. Again, we waited...by now it was nearing 7:15; everyone around us had been served. When finally served, little time!"

  • "We had a great dinner @ Dragonfly Cafe our first night in Ashland. It was a super busy so we had to wait about 25 minutes before our food was delivered but when it arrived, it was terrific. Warning: a bit on the spicy side but other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our entrees! It's also a bit noisy however the ambiance is friendly and so was our waitress."

  • "We dine at Dragonfly every time we vacation in Ashland, usually 10 or so days a year. Over those 10 days we dine at there 2 or three times. They have a very unique menu as well as excellent service. The outdoor dining area is beautiful."

  • "The service is extremely slow and two hours were not enough to eat a single entree and have a drink. The drinks and the dishes came sporadically at different times in various temperatures. Don't try to make a play unless you go at 5pm for dinner. Overall, nice ambiance, but we were seated at a table which was on the main walkway between the bar and the kitchen and had to move all the time. Food was OK, steak was cooked to order, but came kind of warm... There is a potential, but I think I won't go back."
