A word from Dragonfly Sushi & Sake Co.
One of the first Modern Izakaya restaurants, Dragonfly is a sophisticated twist on the traditional Japanese tapas style dining; serving sushi, sashimi, and robatayaki (or grilled foods), with a full sake bar in a relaxed lounge atmosphere. This dining concept centers around the sharing of dishes to stimulate the senses. Balancing elegance and humility, Dragonfly strives to keep in touch with the 3 S's: Sensual, Spiritual & Savory when it comes to their food, service, and ambiance. *We take reservations everyday with the exception of Friday & Saturday evenings* Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "In Gainesville for business and am always skeptical of trendy sushi restaurants (especially in a small town) but this place was just fabulous. Had the pork belly buns and sushi. Excellent."

  • "Every time I am in Gainesville I come here. Everyone I travel with knows we will be going to dragonfly and they have all loved it. They are so consistent and the service is always good. Dragonfly RULES."

  • "Met friends here for my birthday lunch as I was craving sushi. The choices were varied and all at our table had a hard time choosing which item to get, even my girlfriend who doesn't care much for sushi found an extraordinary roll she just loved. The wait staff was knowledgeable and thorough, great for answering all questions with excellent suggestions."

  • "Despite noting on my reservation that one of us was vegan this message did not get to our server or the kitchen. We were repeatedly told "no, that's not vegan". Our server didn't try to help find appropriate menu items or work with kitchen even though it was early and not crazy busy. Even most of tofu dishes are not vegetarian. Once some food could be chosen it was very good. Food excellent for non-vegans. Bench seats in poor condition. Despite the negatives I would return & do recommend it for adventurous eaters."

  • "We had family in from NY who we wanted to celebrate a couple birthdays and enjoy the evening. Upon entering the establishment with 3 adults and 2 children ages 5 and 11 we had reserved a table in advance. As we were seated at our table the temp in the room was a bit chilly and we requested a warmer table and possibly a view of the sushi chefs. We were immediately re-seated at a booth by the manager who gave us exactly the desired seating we had requested. The food was excellent and affordable resulting in a fabulous dinner."
