They took longer to clean the table, music was so loud and they didn't make any special for our celebration.... Food was very good...

Our waiter Matthew was wonderful. He helped us out with our questions and steered us to two AMAZING rolls. Food was excellent. We enjoyed our date and used Valet parking.

Food and service were wonderful.

The booth we were seated at was quite low so the table came to about chest high. We asked for a regular chair which sat us as the correct height. Also, even with the lights on, that seating area was very, very dark (corner booth by the patio door).

It's a nice spot, not the most romantic, not the best and not the worst. It's more for the business or casual diner than it is for couples.

Very friendly staff. The skewer dishes we ordered were good. Also the karaage chicken was pretty good. The omakase sushi was a bit of a disappointment - it being the most expensive but didn’t taste very good.

I made a reservation for dinner. When I arrived, the table was already ready for me. Wait time for food was reasonable (about 10-15 minutes). The Omakase Nigiri is excellent! Grilled chicken thigh is out of this world!!! I think it was grilled with real charcoal. Good food good service.

My wife and I went to Dragonfly Robata for dinner, to celebrate our 31st anniversary. It was the perfect venue for a quiet and romantic dinner, where the ambiance was very nice and we didn’t have to yell at each other to have a conversation. The food, as expected, was superb and yet very reasonably priced. We will definitely be coming back!

My husband and I have been to Dragonfly several times, but last night we were there with another couple who had never been there. With the exception of the Blue Crab Fried Rice (a must order), we ordered everything from the Happy Hour menu, and our meal was excellent! Our friends loved all of the dishes they ordered, and want to go back soon.

Our server was Alicia, and she was wonderful. She has a great personality, and was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. She recommended a cold sake to me, and I was very pleased with her suggestion.

All in all, it was a lovely evening, and I’m looking forward to dining there again!

The food was great! Portion size of non sushi items were very small for the cost. Service was ok but, it seemed like she had to over try to be friendly and seemed non genuine.

Used to be an amazing restaurant. Have been there many times over last 10 years, but new management has certainly changed things. Omakase has been amazing there over the years and they always tried to make it an amazing experience and it was. This time, we were told that we did not call in to request before and that they had to get managers approval. Once approved, the food was great, but they brought out half of what they used too. Then the waitress told us at the end that the chef, who is the owner now, would appreciate us contacting them before we come to order that again. It was not done in a nice way. Also when we got there, only two tables were being used in the entire restaurant. They wouldn't seat us until we went to the bar and ordered a drink. I guess the new normal is to accept to be treated however they want to treat you....Well that does not always work. Unfortunately, one of my favorite restaurants has gone to this attitude and I can see now why it was only half full when it used to be packed every night.

Visited Dragonfly many times over the last 10+ years. In last 2 years the experience has been inconsistent. Some visits the food is prepared and presented great, while others it is not the case. Chefs and staff seem to change often. This experience was subpar and came two days after we did a takeout order that came without wasabi and ginger and again a sub par performance on the food preparation. Manager was notified after the takeout order problem and that we would be dining in in two days. At our visit we did not get a try at making it right or even a mention of it. We were also charged a second time for a hand roll that we requested a redo of (it came with basically nothing more than cucumber and rice in it the first time). At this point we no longer can roll the dice on a visit to Dragonfly.
