Never got to the full experience - had a reservation for 9:15 and was told the wait would be 45 - 1 hour. The attitude was cocky and offered to see if manager would approve of a free drink while standing in bar, which never materialized. We left for Georgies on Travis street which was fantastic.

'PERFECT' would summarize our experience at Dragonfly. Our waiter was fantastic -- we ordered drinks to start and they were perfectly balanced in flavor, generous in size. The appetizer with the lamb lollipop, salmon and deviled egg was OUT OF THIS WORLD in flavor. We also had a flatbread -- all were delicious, beautifully plated and service was attentive but not hovering. We were there on a Sunday night - so very chill vibe. Highly recommend!

Wonderful meal. The only reason top stars were not given in all categories was because since we are in between seasons, the view of the pool had equipment and cushions stacked up. I would imagine once the pool is open, everything will be organized. Juan was an awesome server, good food and will be back!

I'm sure it's no fault of the establishment due to every thing that was expired the past year. But this was the worst experience I've had here at dragonfly. No fault to the place but it's definitely lost it's spunk it use to have.

We had a party of 8 for my birthday dinner, and the restaurant was nice enough to accommodate our large group, even though the hotel was booked at capacity, and we couldn’t get a room. I was really looking forward to dinner, and had been planning a trip to The Dragonfly for over a year, so I was really excited to finally make it happen! Unfortunately, service at our table was terrible. I asked for a drink three times before asking another staff member. The table side experience was definitely sub par. After dinner, my husband and I relocated to the bar for a drink while we still had grandma on the clock as a babysitter, and we were pleasantly surprised with the bartender for the night. The hostess was also terrific. I might go back for drinks, or a casual dinner, but wouldn’t choose it for a special occasion again.

To sum up the experience it was completely forgettable. There weren’t many customers should have been the first clue, for a Valentine’s day weekend. The meal; I had the Red Fish, was ok, but nothing special. My date had the mussels, with the same opinion. 3 cocktails, and the bill approached $200. I enjoyed my $20 lunch at a local Italian restaurant earlier that day a lot more. I wouldn’t call it a bad experience, but I wouldn’t return or recommend it to anyone.

I have been coming to hotel Zaza for many years now and food has never been so mediocre as yesterday.
Way overpriced for the horrible soggy calamari (more jalapeños than squid).
I order my steak medium rare and my steak was alive. As a chef I would re-fire the order since I did not even try it but instead I got the same steak but now way over cooked sliced steak. So sad, it used to be a great restaurant.

We had a great meal and experience. We have eaten here a few times and it’s always top notch. Drinks were good, loved the calamari! We had the fish and steak and they were cooked to our liking. Waiter was awesome! DJ is there from 8 pm onward on weekends but it’s not loud at all. You barely notice it in a good way! We were afraid we would be yelling over the music all evening and not so. We will return next time in Dallas!

Although we were disappointed (but we totally understand) there was a limited menu due to COVID, our server, Tiff, was the BEST and made up for it. She was extremely personable and so much fun to have! We were celebrating our friend's birthday and she made sure we had a great time. We appreciated being in the wine room (I'm sure the other guests did too, we were having a great time in there). The host (I forgot his name, it was the gentleman with the sling on his arm) was also very helpful and even put the cake up for us upon arrival. We enjoyed our time there and will be back to see Tiff!

Took my bestie on a date here. Fellas all I’m going to say the bar has been set. Pros| Zaza’s is a wonderful place to sit, dine, talk & drink! The drinks are pretty exotic🥂. Drinks are $15 ,however, they’re strong as hellll so you definitely get what you pay for! It’s December and with TX weather being indecisive, you get the best of both worlds dining inside and out. Also! If it’s too cold, they’ll turn the heaters on for you. Fire always spices it up a little! 🔥Con| while processing our payments, my BFF and I did a split transaction and their system went down charging both of our cards two incorrect amounts and taking a business day to issue a refund (not that this was something they could control) I thought that sharing this would be helpful for someone who isn’t one for surprises. Beyond that 4/5 👌🏽
