A real gem in Truckee!
Set in picturesque downtown Truckee across from the Amtrak station, Dragonfly has the best food we've had in the Truckee area! Every dish was mouth watering and a fun fusion of Japanese, Indian, and Californian cuisine. Superior to the Ritz Carlton restaurant even. The food was simply divine. Downtown Truckee is small but such a cute "main street". This is upstairs. Decor is a bit quirky, but the service was fabulous. Great wine list. We will definitely be back!

There's many great restaurants to choose from in Truckee, but Dragonfly is always a favorite. The menu is unique, sushi is fresh and creative, and the drink menu is amazing. Always a good choice and never lets you down.

Love this place!
Delicious food. Friendly service. Sometimes we'll eat here twice in one day! Definitely go here, but make a reservation if you think it might be busy.

Tasty Thai Japanese Treat
We celebrated my partner's birthday at Dragonfly this past weekend. The food was really wonderful and are server was very attentive. I recommend eating on the balcony overlooking old town Truckee so you can enjoy the view and mild evening temps.

We have eaten here many times.
We have eaten here many times. The service and food are always good to excellent. Shared 3 small plates and salad with my husband which was plenty. Only problem was an outdoor heater next to me clanking loudly in the wind. Apparent to all servers and not remedied

Wonderful place, delicious food!
This place was my family's top 3 restaurants in N. Lake Tahoe. The menu is fun, different and delicious. We came here twice in one week. The Moroccan chicken is not to be missed, the smoked trout rolls are fantastic. The basa or tofu main dish with a banana pesto is excellent ( we tried both).. They really know how to serve fresh, non salty ( except for the miso soup) and light dishes with careful attention to the presentation. All of the rolls are great. The only small issue is if they get busy, you will have to wait a little for sushi, but eating outside on a beautiful summers evening made it all okay.The prices are so reasonable for such a high quality meal. Also, you MUST order the chocolate cake at the end! It is amazing!

We had friends from New York visiting and as usual, had a great dining experience at Dragonfly. We ordered sushi and entrees to share. The food was terrific. We also tried a few of their specialty cocktails which were fun.
The service matched the food...also great.

We happen to hit Dragonfly on Lobster night! So good! The four of us split two lobster meals (we're not big eaters) and it was perfect! We also started with the Omega roll, which is my favorite. Always on our list when we're in Tahoe Donner. Never disappoints.

Went for the "Know Your Farmer" dinner. The kale salad was delicious. The curried, zucchini soup was so hearty it could be a stand-alone entree. I let them know at the last minute that I am vegan and was presented with a "work of art" herb crusted tofu garnished with a slice of fried banana. The wait staff were fun and friendly.

great food and service
We had the trout entree, an "inside out" roll and one of the sashimi dishes. All were delicious and presented well. They split the trout dish in 2 for us, and it still seemed like generous portion sizes. The house salad is simple but very tasty and fresh. The server was friendly, funny, and very informative about the menu. We sat out on the patio which was just OK, nothing fancy. The wine list is OK, not great, but we are from the Napa area so kind of spoiled in that department. We would have tried one of the desserts but were too full from a very satisfying meal. Will definitely be back again!

We were very impressed. We
We were very impressed. We enjoyed the food, presentation and staff although they did seem a little unorganized. Overall would recommend and revisit!

Went for dinner on Friday and had a great time. Food was excellent as always. Service was on the slow side. But it was locals night and the place was packed. They should staff a little better for that. But overall had a great time.

We've eaten here many times, but Saturday nite's dinner was the best. We were five in our party, including a toddler. Our server brought several items for the toddler not on the menu, but which made her happy. In lieu of entrees, we decided to try most of the social plates and several sushi's. Three of us had the smoked trout Ceasar salad. Everything was wonderful. The Thai Cosmo and cucumber gimblets were outstanding, as always. Dragonfly's high quality did not change a bit, even with the November half-price special.

I was excited to try Dragonfly,
I was excited to try Dragonfly, I've only heard great things and my experience was beyond expectations. Arrived 30 min early to have a cocktail in the bar. Kudos to the bartender friendly and professional and only uses fresh lime juice in the margaritas. The host and waitress were great also setting the stage for the evening and the food was superb, creative and delicious. I started with the vegan such soup. Unbelievably good and I'm not a vegan. Noodle bowl is great as well.
