We picked this restaurant for a friendly dinner because it had great food, great service and nice ambiance. Our table was placed between two very loud tables of mostly drunk and very loud people. Our friendly dinner was spent mostly just trying to hear the person on the other side of the table. Disappointing. Also the food was disappointing. The only good thing was our waiter, who is really outstanding. I am sorry but we won’t be back.

This was our first visit to dragonfly. We found the service and atmosphere far exceeding our expectations. We even stayed on after dinner at the pool side where we had drinks and listen to music. This little spot is a diamond in the rough make the trip it’s worth it .

I thought the entrees had good flavor, but an app of bread with the spinach artichoke dip was a bit much. The serving staff was uncoordinated. We had 2 servers who weren't really dedicated to our table. We also had a table by the pool where a lady was quite proud of her thong bikini so that brought the ambiance down.

The place probably worth one time visit.

Food - We went for the dinner. We find the Chilled Jumbo Shrimp & Blue Crab Campechana delightful, but both entrees lack creativity. Dessert only has 3 choices, and none was attractive to us, so we skipped.

Decor - The decor for the hotel and the restaurant is a bit unconventional, with some Asian artifacts, but feel a bit loud and artificial.

Service - Courteous.

Overall, we feel underwhelmed.

We travel to Dallas about 3-4 times a year for work, and we always made this one of our stops for dinner for the last 6 years. For some reason they changed up the menu getting rid of an amazing appetizer of calamari with a fantastic sweet and spicy sauce. It was something we looked forward to eating every time we went. Additionally, Chris was often our server and he made those meals even more incredible. What we found even more bizarre then taking the calamari off the menu was keeping the dressing for a steak thai noodle salad. We appreciated the manager bringing us complimentary shrimp and a crab dish, but they were just not the same. It is a fairly pricey menu, but we never even questioned it in the past, but now, we will most likely not be back. At the table we had three different steaks, two thai salad's and one order of the salmon. Everyone thought the food was just "ok."

Dragonfly is always a great place to people watch. I love that they offer a small filet (4 oz) which is a deal at $24. It’s the perfect size if you don’t want to feel stuffed after dinner. The basil pesto gnocchi was delicious as was the filet.

The specials were awesome, the waitstaff were unobtrusive and very pleasant, the wine list was comprehensive. With both steak and halibut ordered at our table, the recommendation for the 2014 Palermo cabernet was right on point. We will be back. :)

First time at Hotel ZaZa. Very swanky. Dragonfly is the hotel restaurant and was a wonderful dining experience. We had the pickled deviled eggs as an appetizer. Incredible and a good value. Lydia had the scallops. Cooked perfectly. I had the red snapper with the crispy skin. One of the best I've ever eaten. Our waiter was fantastic and even comped us the second round of prosecco as an anniversary gift. They also had a really impressive list of cocktails but we stuck with the bubbly. I avoid going to Dallas, but I would definitely go back to Dragonfly.

My wife and I have been many times. But it’s been years. We made reservations with the understanding it was our 26th anniversary. We were placed in a private room and the service was spectacular.

The restaurant didn’t need to do it but we believe the attention to detail was spectacular.

The best in Dallas for so many reasons... enjoy!!!!

The term "hotel restaurant" has changed in the last 20 years ad Dragonfly is no exception. They have stepped up the "hotel restaurant" quite a few notches. The food was wonderful. On par with any restaurant in Uptown. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine selection and pairing it with my entree. Great job!

My wife and I were in Dallas for her birthday and chose to stay at Hotel ZaZa and have dinner at Dragonfly. We had a wonderful evening there with great food and excellent service. Chris waited on us and provided the best service I’ve had at any restaurant. His sense of humor and timeliness were amazing and we even saw his patience handling a demanding nearby table. Would highly recommend.

Service was excellent. Food was to die for good, flavor and innovation wise. Unfortunately, our food was cold. It was Mother's Day, we had an early reservation 10:45 am and the Restsurant was 1/4 full. By 11:30, when our food finally arrived, they were 2/3 to 3/4 full ( meaning not full capacity by any means). Since all 4 dishes were cold ( barely above room temperature), I can only conclude the plates sat in the kitchen without a heat lamp for a long time. For that to happen when they are not full is sadly unacceptable. I don't think we will return.

Everything was overall amazing. It took awhile before the waiter came to greet our table. I actually had to go to the manager to say something. The manager apologized and gave us a complimentary bread basket and fruit. The food took awhile to also come out, but was amazing once it did. So, it made up for the flaws. Even though the service was a little lagging, the overall experience and quality of food wAs great. I will go back and give it another shot. I will chalk it up to it being Mother’s Day for service.

My experience was beautiful. I had the private dining room that seated 5 guest. It was perfect and my heart was so overjoyed with the setup for us. The food is always amazing and I am a vegetarian. The drinks are always on point and they have a fabulous wine selection. After dinner, you can enjoy a DJ and your friends by a beautiful pool.

For the type and price of the hotel and food within the restaurant, we were very disappointed. Taste and things not cooked properly for dinner was a big problem. Our server was amazing though...the drinks were outstanding...and the breakfast was much better.
With it not being very busy, the service for breakfast was a little slow...guest even had to get up and get their own coffee refill.
