Whenever I'm in the city for
Whenever I'm in the city for lunch this is my favorite place to dine - the service is always friendly and professional, and the food is always expertly-prepared and delicious. During the week their lunch specials are the best considering this is Chicago we're talking about, and I always end up taking food home because their portion sizes are amazing.

Good Food, Great Drinks
Dragonfly Mandarin has a large menu with some standard items that you might find at other Chinese restaurants, but some other more unique items. We opted for some of the basic items (Crab Rangoon, Rainbow Maki, Mongolian Beef) and they were all delicious. But the food was outshined by their creative and flavorful cocktails. I'm a wine person, but I would say that the cocktails here are not to be missed. We had an early evening reservation, so the place was not very busy. Service was friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was interesting, but nothing too fancy. It reminded me of the "after" on Restaurant Impossible. Overall, worth a visit.

Many options in varied menu
I liked the decor, found the service very good, food quality was very good. Drinks were good, smaller glasses than I am used to. It is a little bit louder than I am used to. Priced right and many weekly offers.

Sharable Portions, Great Taste!
This is the perfect place to order entrees that are sharable. From the mooshu steak to the honey walnut prawns and maki rolls, everything had great flavor without being too salty or drowned in too much sauce. Our previous time here we enjoyed the Basil Chicken and duck fried rice-both were fantastic as well! Solid service and great to eat outdoors when the temps are warm.

Great for Drinks and Sushi
Very surprised this place isn't more crowded. The drinks and sushi were very very good with average pricing. Outdoor seating is great. Ordered the Honeymoon Chicken famiy style as an entree and it wasnt the greatest but the Sushi, drinks and appetizers more than made up for it.

Great Food and Service
One ot our favorite Chinese/Mandarin restaurants in Chicago; easy to get to and free parking on the street. The food is always fresh and delicious. This time we brought our 9 y/o son who also loved the food.

Dragonfly Mandarin was such a wonderful experience! My son and I ate there, and everything about the restaurant was first-rate. The food was wonderfully prepared, and the service was exemplary. My son had such a wonderful time there, and I will definitely go back on my next visit to Chicago! A must-go-to restaurant for anyone in the area!!!

great food, nice patio, ok service
crab legs were great but came with no small fork and no extra napkins or wet naps or a bowl to put the shells in. strange that we had to ask for that. had to ask for straws twice, they were out of the drink I wanted (but the replacement drink was delicious), and out of the dessert we wanted (how can you not have nutella or banana).

Food was phenomenal and the service was wonderful as well. The restaurant was very, very hot, however. I believe the AC must have been broken so we were quite uncomfortable for the first half of our meal. I highly recommend the Fruit of the Emperor martini and the Dragonfly maki roll.

We had a terrific appetizer (duo tartare), a very nice sushi dish (sunset), and some of the best sesame chicken I've ever had. Everything about the meal impressed, and the service was excellent as well.

Very rare to find a spot where we have no complaints in any ariea. Our lovely waitress accurately explained all - so no

a spot to try again.
