We ordered the bomb roll, salmon, and calamari. There was no wow factor to any of the food and the drink that I ordered had way too much OJ, overpowering the peach schnapps that should’ve been in the drink. What ultimately left a bad taste in my mouth, however, was an automatic gratuity. They called it a “service charge” to take care of their servers. This is unheard of and a disgusting practice given the area is affluent so I imagine that people who dine here don’t stiff waiters and would actually tip more. We left more on top of the “18% service fee” but I don’t think I would return. It is a sneaky way for the business to not pay their servers a livable wage by guaranteeing a certain amount in tips. You as a business could pay them more than $5.63/hr +tips. You just choose not to. I was a server in college so I am knowledgeable on how it works. If the server doesn’t make enough in tips to amount to that 5.63/hr, the business has to pay the difference. Shame on you.

My wife and two young kids had a very good time. Great food for everyone and we felt safely spaced. We will be back again.

This is the best sushi my wife and I have ever had!! First off, Sarah T was our server! She was absolutely amazing! Had a great knowledge of the menu and the restaurant.

We were there for our son’s 19th birthday. I had requested a nice table since it was his first visit. I feel we could’ve had a better location, not by the kitchen and a large party, maybe a better view as well. But, the server was amazing and on top of every detail. He was kind and helpful with the menu. The food was fantastic, as always. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

Food and drinks were really good. Dimly lit, quiet ambiance. Only thing I didn’t love was that the tables seemed a bit old and might need some restoration. Maybe that’s what they are going for, but there was a weird finish on ours. Felt kinda sticky. I would recommend to a friend tho!

What a Wonderful Experience!!!
My wife & I haven’t been out for a “date night” in awhile (COVID), so we weren’t sure what to expect. From the moment we walked in, everything was perfect! The ladies up front couldn’t be nicer, and our server was one of the best we’ve ever had. From helping us with wine pairings, including tastes of her recommendations, to recommendations on the food choices, and just being very personable, it was the best experience we’ve had at Dragonfly. We would both highly recommend, and this restaurant will be back in our rotation.

We had higher expectations than what they delivered. Most restaurants in the area have very high quality ingredients and attentive service. We ordered steamed edamame which didn’t come out until we were almost done eating our entrees and when we asked about it, we kept being told it would be out soon but it seemed they forgot about it. Our sushi was not the freshest tasting and the quality of fish wasn’t too great. It’s nice that the restaurant is giving the wait staff a good wage but we didn’t feel the 18% added on automatically gave the staff enough incentive to really be attentive to their tables. We sat without water for a bit, as mentioned food was forgotten and the over all experience was not what we were expecting. You can go to Bento down the street to get better quality sushi.

Food was good. As others have noted the table was dirty/sticky. Japan style food but never saw a Japanese employee and was playing only American music so no real Japonese ambience if that matters.
