We dined here for brunch. It was really tasty and the service was great! They could dress up their bloody mary's a little more... salted rim at least! But overall we had a great experience.

We came to check for a party. The atmosphere was great, the food was meh. We had the fish, lamb chops party of six. Unfortunately, had to return the chops; first was well done , second was rare , third was perfect. The Manager apologized , yet charged ( usually, they don’t at upscale restaurant). Drinks were nice and we booked the party. Again food was disappointing for such location.

The smoking area is not the best. I am a nonsmoker, but having a row of black plastic ashtrays sitting on the top of a fence does not meet the standard I would expect from ZaZa/Dragonfly

Service was fantastic food was delicious. The only thing we were disappointed in was the jumbo shrimp. We ordered two servings without seeing it first. It was tiny shrimp cut into pieces. There was nothing jumbo about it. Just FYI :) Everything else was spot on!

Happy to recommend this as a pretty breakfast spot if you're trying to have intimate conversations. I'm sure it doesn't happen often but it was a not so stellar breakfast for myself. My friend seemed to enjoy her meal thoroughly though so I'm chalking it up to waitstaff being tired. My friend ordered first: Egg white omelet with chicken sausage, a cheese and two vegetables. I ordered a regular omelet with chicken sausage, fontina, avocado, and jalapenos. The waiter read back our orders but forgot the jalapenos which I clarified and he laughed, commenting "you speak too fast." That seemed a tad on the critical side for breakfast at 7:30am. We get our meals and I cut into one end piece and find what appears to be shredded ACTUAL chicken, chicken sausage, and jalapenos. No avocados. I thought it was just the one end, maybe a piece of chicken had gotten in there. No. The entire omelet was filled with shredded chicken, jalapenos, chicken sausage. No avocado in sight. After explaining to another server they were gracious enough to give us some sliced avocado on the side, but honestly, the breakfast was ruined as there was so much chicken cooked into the omelet that I couldn't even pick out what was just eggs. I'm disappointed that after being told I talk too fast, the order was still somehow wrong even though the item the waiter had originally missed was actually in the omelet. Am I miffed that I spent $15 on an omelet that I could barely eat? Yes. Would I recommend this place for breakfast? Absolutely, because I believe it was a mistake but it was one that threw off the rest of the meal. Also, maybe don't poke fun at the way your clientele speak.

Two of us dined at Dragonfly for Mother's Day as most restaurants were already booked earlier in the week and I could get a table there fairly easily. The restaurant was quiet, inviting and not very busy at all. The waiter was a bit casual and that is fine., but we had to get his attention several times. I ordered shrimp avocado toast off the Mother's Day brunch menu and thought these items would be delicious and that was definitely not the case. The food was not very good at all. The waiter brought our check before he even asked if we'd like coffee or dessert! That day, we paid for ambiance. I could have gotten a more delicious meal at some place way less expensive.

Dragonfly was a great restaurant to celebrate Mother’s Day brunch. Food was excellent, and ambiance was stylish and cozy. Service was very friendly and good but a bit slow on coffee /water refills. We will be return for a date night and try dinner.

They greeted us kindly and seated us quickly. We had a beautiful view of the pool, and the seating was comfortable and intimate. However, our server showed up to introduce herself, then gave us a moment and never came back. We were given a different server who did not know what the specials were, and suggested it “is always some sort of fish.” The cocktails were unremarkable, and neither of us ordered another. The meat and cheese tray included some roast beef that was, well, discolored, however the cheeses, honey, and almonds were acceptable. The snapper was okay, but not unique. Everything was over cooked and honestly left me with the impression that we could have been served and fed better at BJs restaurant or at home with a plate stuck in the microwave, which is probably what we received anyway. I had explained on my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and we received no indication that this was noted. Highly disappointing experience.

Dragonfly was excellent. Food and wine quality were as you would expect. However, it was the service that stood out. Ahmed was absolutely wonderful and accommodating when my party had a hiccup in the middle of service. He was kind and took care of us above and beyond the call of duty. Can't recommend him enough, and the restaurant as a whole.

Good food and good ambiance, if you like the night life. Don't go early though; they cater to the bar crowd/night life and seem to be annoyed by people who come for dinner. It's not their gig. The food was very good, but overpriced and small portions. The bar staff and drinks were great.

Server was never around. Once we finally put in an appetizer order in, It was probably close to 30 minutes before he came back to take our dinner order. After dinner, he asked if we wanted dessert, we said no. Then, it took another 20-30 minutes to get the check.

The drinks were quite nice, though just on that line between worth it and pricey. A Bloody Mary shouldn’t cost $15, even if it is tasty and well-made. The food was also good, but not anything I couldn’t have made at home with equal or better results. That said, the atmosphere was good. It had the right amount of people and “buzz”. It wasn’t too busy/loud, but it didn’t feel empty. The service was also quite good. We were served promptly and by waitstaff that was friendly and helpful but unobtrusive.

Hotel and restaurant are lovely- a very nice setting in the main restaurant room. Food was consistently yummy and fresh across all of our dishes/courses. All the veggies were divine, great crab cake, fish and poultry cooked perfectly. Service was well-timed throughly the evening so we didn’t feel rushed. Will definitely recommend and be back for dinner.

One service note- please train your hostesses (and wait staff) to NOT say “No Problem” when you check in with a reservation or ask for thing. I know it’s no problem for you...I made a reservation!

It started off poorly, as we had DINNER reservations, but got seated at the bar. We asked to be moved to a table, which was no problem and the service excelled from that point on. The food was excellent and the wine availability was really very good. I would suggest asking for the dining room, as the bar area is a little noisy.

Anniversary dinner. From reviews I thought it was a romantic restaurant, but it was located right next to the hotel bar and was extremely loud and obnoxious. Business meetings at bar and drunk men hitting on drunk women did not make a good vibe. Food was mediocre. Ambiance was bad. Too bright and too loud. Our waiter was nice but this is not a date place. Don’t let the reviews fool you.

If you just want a drink it’s fine.

Wonderful evening out for a date night. It was quiet except for an event outside that was very rambunctious. Our dining experience was well-timed. My only complaint is that we over ordered and our server didn’t check with us before we ordered so much. However, we left happy and full with some leftovers. My one suggestion would be more variety for cocktails, but the one I had was enjoyable.
