    The food was good, but I wouldn't say that it is anything impressive, especially for the price point. It's definitely the type of place you go to if you are staying in the hotel or if you want to be seen by a specific demographic.

    I can't gush enough about our experience at Dragonfly. A friend referred our out-of-towner group and we couldn't have made a better decision. With a simply Open Table reservation we were seated in the private wine room for our group because the staff thought our group would be less crowded. It was quiet in our room but we could see the bar and it was quite lively. We had multiple servers and managers checking in on us and never waited or wanted for a thing. The food was excellent, the drinks were creative and delicious and the service was impeccable. I wish I could go every weekend!!

    Hands down great people watching and fun location. But the food was way over priced and very bland. My $$$$ steak was under seasoned and my $$$$ drink was watered down. I would have been better stay home grilling and opening a bottle of my own. I'll go back for the Tarot card reader but, would eat / drink somewhere else.... if it helps the waiter was really nice :/.

    My wife and I went here for our 2 year wedding anniversary and I must say it was fantastic. The food was all very good, a little small on the portion sizes, but very tasty. The service was excellent as our waiter walked us through most of the menu with his recommendations, and was on top of everything we needed, answering any of our questions easily. I will definitely be back here again.

    We eat at Dragonfly often. It has a vibrant bar scene, but you can still have a quiet dinner in the back dining room if you like. The servers are always extremely attentive, making sure to take care of your needs. The food is sourced with local products and changes with seasons. The food is innovative and delicious. We highly recommend Dragonfly.

    Comfortable, atmosphere and decor. It was not annoying at all. Food pretty spicy, deserts excellent but too small. That can be good thing so you will likely avoid that over eating bloated feeling. Drinks great. I had great company so my attention was more focused on my date.

    First, always make a reservation for the back room. If you get a table by the bar, it will be extremely noisy and loud. The back room however, is very nice and the place to dine. Calamari salad has a taste like none other and is wonderful. We had the Scallops as the entree and ate every last drop. They were fantastic. The Ribeye steak with spinach and goat cheese tater tots were also extremely good. Service was also great, and the wine was wonderful. We will certainly go back for a 3rd visit.

    This is a perfect place for valentine's Day Dinner. Great ambiance, great food, and the service was excellent. They even worked with our dietary restrictions and changed the fixed menu. The only reason this wasn't a 5 star was that it was a bit pricey for the vegetarian food we got, and the loud bar scene outside robbed a bit of the romantic feel of the place (but some people might like that). All in all, definitely a place I will recommend and return to!

    I wonder if Dragonfly has a new manager or something. In the past the service was so-so but this time it was perfect. All of the staff seemed like they wanted to be there and were eager to please their customers. The food was top notch and the noise level was fairly quiet which I genuinely appreciated. I shall return again soon!

    We've been wanting to try Dragonfly for a while. We'd heard good things about it so decided to go there with a few friends. I was very disappointed with the food selection and what I eventually ordered, a Caesar salad. Not sure how you can mess this up but they did. I wasn't the only one at the table that was disappointed with their meal. We will not be going back.

  • Christmas Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/25/2013
    Nothing was horrible, but nothing was great. They seemed to use quality ingredients, but everything was lacking seasoning. If you're going to forego salt and pepper on the table, your food should be very well seasoned. It wasn't that anything was bad, it just didn't match the price point. The "Cool as a Cucumber" lacked flavor. It felt watered down. The pork belly was dry and the sauce that accompanied it was unbearably salty. The filet with lobster fried rice was the real disappointment. The steak was cooked perfectly, but lacked salt. The mirin Demi glacé was absent. The lobster fried rice had maybe five small bits of lobster. This, too lacked seasoning. Service was lackluster. It was polite, but nothing exceeded any expectations.

    Disappointing experience as far as the quality of the food. Salad was bland and the prime rib was not very good. I knew something was really off when we tasted the Creme brûlée and it lacked the crispy topping and had a bad aftertaste. The accompanying biscuit was like eating sand. On the other side of the coin the restaurant was beautiful and the service was fantastic. Will not be going back because we felt the food experience lacked the quality that one would expect for the price.

    We went for Christmas dinner. Service was inattentive and overall just poor. Food was not completed. Volcano salt fries were missing any kind of "volcano". Salad was missing dressing. Dessert was not warm as it was named. Overall will not return. Very disappointing especially for the $100.00 per diner price.

    For the price, you would think that a lunch meal for 3 people would be a slam dunk in terms of food and service.. But after having our entrees cleared, we were left waiting for 30 minutes before someone even addressed us for dessert and drinks. At first it was great and promising - but being overlooked and ignored as he walked past multiple times for other tables was a disappointment. I can only hope this was just a mistake and not typical service - at this level its just unacceptable.

    Best thing is that you dont have to pay for Parking. Fantastic Drinks, great ambiance, great friendly bartenders. I put my credit card down in the bar, and asked to be transferred to the table so I will have only 1 receipt so I can expense it and they closed my check at the bar. Not very professional. Food was cold, and the portions are a little small... If your restaurant look is to be fancy with small portions, dont have a 40 inch TV with football on it. Overall we like it bacause of the drinks. The difference between bar food and dinning food is just the linen of the table. Over 4 different people helped out with our table at the bar first, 1 in the restaurant section. Manager, big guy, was friendly and had it all under control.
