Great location. Server did not know much about Restaurant Week and we had to request menus 3 times.

Everything overall was good. The waiter messed up the order on the appetizer and the steak order was not as cooked as given . I think all this was the waiters mistake and the kitchen. He was not friendly . He made you feel that you didn't deserve the service since you were ordering from the DfW restaurant week menue.

Enjoyed the restaurant week offering - fried chicken, french onion soup and key lime pie. All wonderful choices you can find on the menu every day. Will definitely be back!

The food was disappointing, it was over cooked and very small portions...small enough that we had to go to whataburger afterwards (no joke). We won’t go back, their prices are outrageous and not worth it. At least we donated to a good cause as part of Restaurant Week.

The food is always so good here. Hardly ever on our radar unless we’re staying at the hotel, but we always regret not coming more. The chicken piccata was so good!

Took my wife here for our anniversary dinner. Our waitress was not very friendly or personable. We felt as though she either did not like her job or just didn’t like serving us. But the food was good so we still enjoyed our evening. And I just gave her a 15% tip instead of my usual 20% tip.

The separate dining room doors should be closed to avoid the very loud Bar. Not a good place for a quiet relaxing dinner.

There was no hostess when we arrived. We had to go to the bar to inquire our reserved seating. It was not busy and we waited over 45 min to receive our food, we also had to flag down our waiter to take our order. We ordered a starter as well as chicken picada and a west coast burger neither one was appealing. The food had no flavor and was barely warm. Definitely, over priced for the quality and taste.

Overall a good experience. The server was very attentive, the ambiance was low-key but somehow still active, and location was good. The only issue I had was the amount of food you got for the price you paid; I was still hungry after the entrée. I will go back, however.

We were staying at Hotel Zaza and looking for a low-key easy meal on a Sunday night after a busy Saturday in Dallas. We considered other area restaurants, but decided to stay close with Dragonfly. The environment is cool and trendy, resulting in an eclectic ambience. We even saw a major celebrity dining. I've visited this hotel and had cocktails in January and we were fortunate to have the same server as I did at that time. Tiffany was professional and cordial, offering great recommendations from the menu and willing to answer all of our questions. She was patient and allowed us to take our time through the meal. I would rate the food above average, and the kitchen/chef was very accommodating for any special requests. Tiffany is top notch, and I would definitely recommend asking for her if you dine here. Overall, a great meal with excellent service, in a cool and trendy setting!

Even though we had a reservation we had to go searching for someone to show us to a table. Our server was not very attentive, did not listen and made several of us repeat our orders. When the food was delivered, the gentleman did not know what dish went to whom. Very slow to check back for another round of drinks. Food was fine but nothing to write home about. Very small quantities for a very large sum. In short; Overpriced, under serviced and mediocre food.

Had an early dinner before a show at AT&T.. Started with the tuna tacos - spicy and yummy! Had the strawberry salad which was great! The Salmon entree was fabulous with shaved cauliflower and raisins! Also enjoyed the creme brulee for dessert! Dinner was wonderful and we will return!

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.
