The main bar area for dining was quite loud. The food for price value was not justified

Pretty much underwhelmed with most of the meal. Made a reservation but no one was at the front desk when we walked in. I really wanted breakfast. After the waiter left and came back, he apologized and said they could only do their lunch and brunch menu. I said I understand and asked for a couple minutes to decide. The bread they brought was stale and hard.

I order the lobster roll. It’s okay but I ask for fruit and get fries. I can’t even tell the server because he never comes back. The worst part happens when I look over to see a family that got to the restaurant 15 min after us eating the dish I was told was not available because they weren’t serving breakfast. So needless to say I was pretty upset.

I can only assume he wanted to up sell us as all the brunch foods are much more complex and expensive. Either way....not great food either and even worse service. I’d steer clear.

We had a blast celebrating Thanksgiving at Dragonfly! We loved the ambience, decor, friendly staff. The food was absolutely delicious! We tried Thanksgiving menu: the roasted beats, mushroom soup, sea bass and turkey, and some cocktails. Everything was mouthwatering! It was our first time to try Dragonfly and we definitely will be back soon!

Our server took ten minutes to come over, then at least another ten to come back with drinks. After we ordered our food, we didn’t see our server again the rest of the meal. There was someone to refill our drinks, another dropped off food and a third brought us the check when we waved him over. While the food was good, it seemed like an expensive dinner when the service was so lacking.

The service was adequate. It was a Wed night so it wasn't too loud or crowded. The environment is fun and stylish. It took a while to get some service but it was our wedding anniversary and we weren't in an hurry. The table top was a paper cover of table cloth. It was not changed before we sat down. Those are my only two complaints. The food was great and they helped us celebrate our anniversary by throwing in some desserts. Overall a good time!

We went there with no expectations ( not even reading the reviews). It was a very Pleasant surprise! Starting with the Vala,the young hostess and a very nice Gentleman Kevin that took care of us. Was really nice. To top that the food was delicious.
This speaks highly about the people that have hired such nice people.
We had a good time.
Next time we will show up with our family.
Thank you!

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening! We were celebrating a very special private night, and you accommodated us very warmly. We so appreciated the special table in the wine room, the exquisite service, and the yummy cheesecake dessert. Thank you for caring about our experience, and for treating us like a king and queen! <3 <3

I made a reservation early in the morning for dinner. When I arrived they sat me in the bar. Then I was asked for a card or room number to "start a tab". Wha? They soon realized their error and more than made it up to me. Comped my drinks and moved me to a more comfortable table. Great service, excellent food, and nice atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant!

1st time dining and Ahmed not only provided impeccable service, but his choice of food recommendations were perfect! Started with the Chilled Jumbo Shrimp and Blue Crab Campechana. The Serrano served with this gave it that great “bite”. Then tried the lamb lollipops and they were so tender and flavorful. I could have stopped there and still given a 5 star review but ended with Grilled Snapper & Herb Marinated Shrimp. This will be a meal to remember. Thank you Dragonfly and thank you Ahmed!

Dragonfly was a disappointment - had reservations for 3 months yet they decided to seat us in the side room, missing the eclectic ambiance of the main room. Service was professionally polite but painfully slow. The snapper - shrimp special wasn't special, and the snapper dry. For the money ($100 plus per person with cocktails) they could have done a lot better to deliver against the value proposition. Hotel ZaZa is a "wow" but sadly Dragonfly barely got game over a "hotel restaurant".

Food overall was fantastic with plenty of dining options that provide plenty of options. Food is unique (a few small twists) that bring out an interesting flavor. Really enjoyed everything and although it is more expensive than a chain, it is not wildly expensive.

It was such a pleasure to discover that The Dragonfly’s cuisine matched the fabulous accommodations at Hotel ZaZa. It made the perfect stress free getaway-we didn’t have to leave the hotel to have an exceptional dinner and breakfast the next morning.
