Amazing as always!
Really love how Alex pairs your wine to your meal. I wish he could be cloned for other spots I frequent!
Food is amazing as always.

Worth a visit.
We had a wonderful experience at Dragonfly. The squid salad is stellar! The dumplings are delicious. My steak was cooked perfectly and the other dish of whole fish was served already boned and perfect. All requests were generously and completely answered.

A Dallas Gem
We experienced Dragonfly as out of town guests and completely enjoyed the food and ambiance. Although the server we had spoke very quickly and acted annoyed when we asked questions, in the end, she delivered us a nice experience. We have already sent two other parties. Highly recommended!

Always wonderful! Have Alex
Always wonderful! Have Alex the sommelier pick out a bottle just give him a price range! This wine list has names that you probably havent tried so it is fun to have something new and you arent going to see these choices in a grocery store. The presentation is flawless.
Food is amazing! We tried the deviled eggs, lamb lollipops, ahi tuna tacos and dumplings for starter for our table of 4 and they were all yummy!
Then we had the best Filets! at 5oz it was the perfect amount! We all shared Grueyere Mac n cheese (so good) Brussel sprouts and garlic pots.
The slice of ice dessert was so good... it was oreo crust and the best choclate icecream! it is a must try.
We also tried a celecrator toast with a tequila sunset...It was so good

Our group enjoyed the ambiance
Our group enjoyed the ambiance at Firefly and will definitely consider it again as an after-theater gathering place.

Won't be disappointed!
The service was amazing. My boyfriend is very health conscious & has very specific menu requests. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu he even made healthy suggestions based on his meal requests. We ordered wine but weren't clear that we wanted a bottle, so he brought us 2 glasses. Our waiter quickly remedied the situation by giving us the 2 glasses on the house & brought us a bottle even though it really was our fault. He never questioned us. After dinner our waiter found us a table outside by the pool where we could finish our bottle & they had a lounge with a DJ going. I ordered the scallops & they were cooked perfectly, my boyfriend ordered the fish of the day, the portion was a little small for him but he said tasted great

The Noah's Ark appetizer was
The Noah's Ark appetizer was incredible! It included 2 of each appetizers on the menu and for 2 people was almost a meal itself. The whole fish on a bed of quinoa was fresh,simple and delicious. The grouper,likewise, was very fresh, light and satisfying. The oreo cookie ice cream "cake" drizzled with fudge and caramel was absolutely decadent. The sommelier "Mr. Outside" turned us on to a superior bottle of bubbles- Billecart-Salmon reserve Brut. The single page menu proved the adage the simpler the menu the better the food.

Perfect date night
Everything was as perfect as can be, the server Michael was great and the food was excellent!!!

The food was well prepared
The food was well prepared and presented. The portions were small, but filling for a female appetite. The ambiance was stunning. The drinks were pricey and no happy hour feature. Great romantic experience overall.

Good looking and tentative wait staff, phenomenal food and cocktails, perfect late night ambience! Great Saturday Night Out!
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
I ate outside near the spa. It was very beautiful and the ambiance was perfect. The retro light bulbs are outside and inside and they are perfect lighting. The food was amazing!! I had the wheatbread pizza, the shrimp and chive appetizer, the slice of ice, and the panna cotta. If I still had room I would have tried an entree. I will be coming back to try even more. The chef is creative with his menu and the creations are delicious. I tried to go again on Sunday but I ran out of time. I will absolutely eat here every time I am in Dallas!!!

Mother's Day Saturday Night
Took my daughter and wife out for an early Mother's Day dinner. Dragonfly more than lived up to expectations. We went early which we were glad of since it was getting crowded when we left at 8:30.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun, delicious... but weird setup
We were seated at a table next to the doors leading out to the crowded pool area. It was a HUGE distraction - all the people coming in and out of those doors. With both waitstaff and customers entering and exiting 5 feet from our table, we had difficulty focusing on dinner. If we go again, next time we'll ask for a table far AWAY from the loggia doors.
Food was perfect - couldn't have asked for anything else, with the portion size and flavor being over the top, we definitely were pleased. We decided to split each other's plates, and the kitchen made sure to divide our dishes on two plates, which was convenient. Also enjoyed the wine and cocktail menu... My wine was incredible.
Yes, we'll probably try again.

amazing food and service
Went with a group of 11 people and everyone was very impressed by the service, food, and ambiance. In addition the Martini's were very good and a wide range. They also have a casual outdoor bar area in addition to the trendy bar inside.

Another Gr8 Night @ ZaZa/Dragonfly
Each time we have a date night at ZaZa we always have dinner at Dragonfly. This last trip was no exception and the meal as always was great. Our table was ready when we arrived and thus we were seated and attentive service began. We ordered the cheese board (not on the menu) as we always do and it was great. We both had seafood (different dishes) both were amazing. We order wine off the reserve/special wine list as we found a bottle that was/is very hard to come by and it turned out to be a real gem of wine. We sat and chatted and didn't have any issues hearing each other over the other dinners. Upon finishing dinner we stopped by the bar and picked up a couple of cocktails before heading to the pool area where a great crowd was amassed.

A Nice Tucked Away Gem!
I love Hotel ZaZa, and I love the card reader that is there. However, this is about the restaurant. The food is a little pricey, but its seasoned well, and is delicious. If you are cost efficient, you will complain. But, on your splurge day, come here.
The Noah's Ark appetizer is plentiful and delicious. I ordered a nice filling salad for my entree. My other family members had a fish that appeared to be in a soup bowl with some sort of tomato soup...it was good, and a steak dinner that was filling and cooked to perfection.
We celebrated a birthday, and our waiter was kind enough to bring her out some cake and ice cream. An act of kindess....I love it!!! Go see the card reader....ON POINT!

Perfect pool side table and the food was exceptional!
6/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
After a small error regarding my reservation, I met Alex and several of his staff. The service was impeccable, the food was excellent. I had a great evening and will be sure to visit again whenever I am in town.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
First time here. Staff was all very friendly attentive professional and accommodating. We asked for a dish not on the menu and was given an excellent meal. Thank you we will be back soon

Sunday Brunch - LIke in Hollywood!
Sunday brunch with great food and babes in bikini's lining the pool. Felt like being at a Hollywood hotel, yet very chill.

Great, but not Awesome
Our visit to Dragonfly's was a great dinner. Our service was great, the food was great, and the restaurant was great. But nothing stood out. I will go back for dinner or something, but it's nothing spectacular. Maybe it's because I ate at Dakota's Steakhouse a couple of days ago, and EVERYTHING was perfect. So I guess I was expecting more. Great place to eat, but a second tier restaurant compared to Dakota's.
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great evening, great service
Dragonfly has never let me down in good food, great attention and good service. If you're in town and want a dinner in a consistently trendy restaurant, give it a try.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome Staff Service
We had exellent service at the Dragonfly. The salmon was delicious! The "Big Flirt" was the best drink I have ever had! I highly recommend everyone to try it. My husband even liked it, so when he ordered it the waitress put it in a manly glass for him so he didn't look girly :) I thought that was very sweet of her. The restaurant was beautiful and very uniquely decorated. We will be back again ;)

Girls Night Out
Perfect evening...great food, wine and conversation. There were six of us in the party for a Girls Night Out. We were seated in the Wine Room and we felt like celebrities. It was so nice to be able to have a conversation where we all could hear each other. The staff was awesome. And the food was delicious. They checked on us periodically to make sure we were doing okay, that the food was okay and that the temperature was okay. We're looking forward to a return visit in the Wine Room!!!!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Zaza's got all- at a price;)
I celebrated my birthday at Dragonfly. The restaurant decor was classy and well arraigned. The service was average, not five star. It was what you'd expect from TGIF. Don't go to the Dragonfly with less than $200, prices are not for cheap / budget concious. The food was perfect, well seasoned and great presentation. I loved the adjoining bar/ pool-side lounge that was wonderful for few drinks after dinner. Zaza is where all the beautiful people of Dallas want to be.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food, knowledgeable
Amazing food, knowledgeable staff, prompt and tentative service. Food was executed perfectly and was bursting with great flavors that worked well and complimented each other greatly. Went here to celebrate wife's birthday and we were blown away. Together we have over 25 years in the restaurant industry, and have eaten at some amazing restaurants all over the country as well as worked in a few as well. We have to say that this is top five. Chef Dan Lansburg came out to the table to great us and talk about the food and gave us some recommendations, which we gladly followed! He has a great knowledge for food, flavor, and freshness. His menu reflects that perfectly. Thanks to him and thanks to Dragonfly for a great start to a perfect evening.

Out of Towners
I had never been to Dragonfly before, but I had a few friends in and thought we would try it. Everyone was beyond lovely! Great food. Excellent bar. I can not wait to come back.

Great Food on a Saturday Night
Loved my Pork Belly pops and the whole fish special was wonderful. Succeeded in making brussel sprouts taste fantastic (no easy feat!) I will definitely be back again.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love Dragonfly's ambience. The food was reasonable. Service has been better on previous occasions.
