    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.

    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.

    Dragonfly was a lively spot, with spirited customers. My hubby and I were looking for a place to have his 40th birthday dinner, if we were able to get the intimate wine room it could possibly work, other than that, more of a bar scene.

    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!!!!

    We went on a double date for dinner on a Friday night, at 8:30. All four of us ordered from the restaurant week menu and the food was terrible! Our 4th course was a joke, consisting of one scallop on top of a quarter size slice of honeydew. My main course wasn't any better, 3 not even lukewarm rubbery ravioli with no sauce and 4 shrimp. My boyfriend hasn't stopped telling everyone how awful his was since then and how noisy the restaurant was. A very expensive very disappointing experience.

    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 ;)

    The food was the problem here. We had the chicken and waffles and the tamales with fried eggs. The waffles were soggy and the tamale was very doughy like it had not been cooked enough. We also had a plate of berries and melon that had been sitting on a plate in a very cold frig as the melon was old and almost frozen. I would not return to this establishment.

    We've been there twice and the first time was a better experience due to service and timeliness on the order. This time the reservation was not ready in time we were seated 45 mintyrsafter our reservation. Additionally, the dinner order took too long arrive. Atmosphere is great just expect to have 3-4 hours for the experience.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    We started our evening at the bar. Great service! Then we moved to our table. We had waitress with an absolutely horrible attitude, she obviously didn't want to be there - very abrupt, no smiles, no talking about the menu - just what do you want.... We started our meal with caesar salads. The dressing was like water. The chef had dumped an inordinate amount of breadcrums on the salad. We were not offered pepper, and none was on the table. We sent the salads back as they were unedible. The quality of our steaks was mediocor at best. We asked for pepper, and the waitress came back and slammed a tiny pepper shaker on our table and left. We will never go back. I urge everyone to avoid this restaurant.

    We were seated next to the still room couldn't enjoy our dinner because of all the cutlery being cleaned. The food was not good at all, we had the chicken which was extremely dry and overcooked and the fish was a bit better but not up to the standards of a privileged restaurant like dragonfly. Our waiter was below average. We waited for 45 minutes to have our food served. Quite frankly I was extremely disappointed with the overall experience.

    Dumplings/Zaza salad-excellent. Tatertots/Calamari salad-good. Salad is mislabeled (more like fried calamari app). Steak/Lamb chops-excellent. Ice cream cookie sandwich - fair. Pre-prepped cookies not cooked to order & lacked enough ice cream. Drinks at bar were solid. Left restaurant with a bad taste in my mouth when bill came. Wife ordered two appetizers and a side for a dinner. They instead brought a dinner portioned lamb dinner (charging us double in the process). Didn't say anything when the bill came, but when you're spending $100/head, you don't expect to deal with this sneakiness. All in all, food is solid, but could be better. Decent service, rated subpar after bill shenanigans.
