Great food and ambience!!
I was pleasantly surprised with how good the food was at this restaurant. I had never been there before and I will definitely go back. We had the spinach artichoke dip, and shrimp/crab appetizers. They were both so good I thought about ordering the shrimp/crab for dinner. I ended up getting the scallops and they were very good. The atmosphere was nice and you could actually hear each other talk!
Walking in I was not feeling it. The bread was really good, and the butter was under salted. The old fashioned was super sweet. The menu read really boring. My wife decided to go out of her comfort zone and ordered the shrimp and crab app. It was super spicy and addictive! We could not stop eating it. The salsa was flavorful and tomato forward, with a nice high heat. The caprese salad was nice. Again really flavorful tomatoes adorned with nice flakes of sea salt. My wife had the fish of the day which was well balanced and tasty. I had the lobster roll. It was good and I appreciate the Tabasco the pickled jalapeños and all the dressings with it. We also ordered the goat cheese Brussels sprouts. The sprouts were great, the hot cheese adds a nice funk and the parm adds a great salt level. Those are not to be missed. For dessert the creek brûlée was nice. They are heavy with the orange citrus which allows them to go heavy on the brûlée . This was a very tasty dessert not like others. It really celebrated the brûlée. Would do it again.
Had to ask for the real wine list. Solid options were available there to our great relief, but vintages were off on half the possibilities we inquired about. Sadly, we got seated in the bar area instead of the quieter back table area. TV in the background was not what we wanted for our anniversary. Food and service were super (chicken and beef dishes) because we made the most of it. Didn't hold up to the reviews we read. We went to Truluck's last year when we were in Dallas which was superior to Dragonfly.
I came here with my family on Christmas Day. The food was terrible and was like mush. Our servers forgot about us since we were located in a private room, and we were there for over 3 hours.
I will never go back or recommend this place.
We were disappointed especially since it Christmas I made a reservation through open table. When we were seated we passed all these empty tables and they took us to a small table by the door. The food was nice but not what we expected given the reviews. The service was really slow
The food was delicious, the service was spot on, and I am definitely going back! And soon since I am still in Dallas for client meetings :-)
The main bar area for dining was quite loud. The food for price value was not justified
Pretty much underwhelmed with most of the meal. Made a reservation but no one was at the front desk when we walked in. I really wanted breakfast. After the waiter left and came back, he apologized and said they could only do their lunch and brunch menu. I said I understand and asked for a couple minutes to decide. The bread they brought was stale and hard.
I order the lobster roll. It’s okay but I ask for fruit and get fries. I can’t even tell the server because he never comes back. The worst part happens when I look over to see a family that got to the restaurant 15 min after us eating the dish I was told was not available because they weren’t serving breakfast. So needless to say I was pretty upset.
I can only assume he wanted to up sell us as all the brunch foods are much more complex and expensive. Either way....not great food either and even worse service. I’d steer clear.
Great atmosphere and beautiful place!
The food was quite good; service was professional if not attentive; the restaurant is beautiful. I would recommend it and would go back.
We had a blast celebrating Thanksgiving at Dragonfly! We loved the ambience, decor, friendly staff. The food was absolutely delicious! We tried Thanksgiving menu: the roasted beats, mushroom soup, sea bass and turkey, and some cocktails. Everything was mouthwatering! It was our first time to try Dragonfly and we definitely will be back soon!
Our server took ten minutes to come over, then at least another ten to come back with drinks. After we ordered our food, we didn’t see our server again the rest of the meal. There was someone to refill our drinks, another dropped off food and a third brought us the check when we waved him over. While the food was good, it seemed like an expensive dinner when the service was so lacking.
The service was adequate. It was a Wed night so it wasn't too loud or crowded. The environment is fun and stylish. It took a while to get some service but it was our wedding anniversary and we weren't in an hurry. The table top was a paper cover of table cloth. It was not changed before we sat down. Those are my only two complaints. The food was great and they helped us celebrate our anniversary by throwing in some desserts. Overall a good time!
We went there with no expectations ( not even reading the reviews). It was a very Pleasant surprise! Starting with the Vala,the young hostess and a very nice Gentleman Kevin that took care of us. Was really nice. To top that the food was delicious.
This speaks highly about the people that have hired such nice people.
We had a good time.
Next time we will show up with our family.
Akbar & Suzanne
Thank you so much for a wonderful evening! We were celebrating a very special private night, and you accommodated us very warmly. We so appreciated the special table in the wine room, the exquisite service, and the yummy cheesecake dessert. Thank you for caring about our experience, and for treating us like a king and queen! <3 <3
Enjoyed dinner at Dragonfly. Service, food and environment was very good.
We were celebrating our anniversary everyone was very professional
The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and wine selection
Very relaxed evening no pressure to move us out to turn the tables
I made a reservation early in the morning for dinner. When I arrived they sat me in the bar. Then I was asked for a card or room number to "start a tab". Wha? They soon realized their error and more than made it up to me. Comped my drinks and moved me to a more comfortable table. Great service, excellent food, and nice atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant!
It was delicious
Food was disappointing. Service was excellent. No sides with the main course.
Staying at the hotel, so very convenient to go there.
Service at the restaurant, like all service at Zaza was excellent.
Both of us ordered chicken dishes, which were very good.
Great birthday celebration!
Max was great.
First time there and will return soon and bring friends. Service and food was excellent expecially the server. Cute and attentive.
The service was top notched as always and the food and drinks were outstanding!
Great place for a much needed date night. Loved the ambience especially. And the food was really delicious.
Birthday celebration! It was amazing
First time to visit this place. Would definitely recommend, great ambiance.
Great time. Service was awesome. Good people watching.
1st time dining and Ahmed not only provided impeccable service, but his choice of food recommendations were perfect! Started with the Chilled Jumbo Shrimp and Blue Crab Campechana. The Serrano served with this gave it that great “bite”. Then tried the lamb lollipops and they were so tender and flavorful. I could have stopped there and still given a 5 star review but ended with Grilled Snapper & Herb Marinated Shrimp. This will be a meal to remember. Thank you Dragonfly and thank you Ahmed!
Dinner out with adult daughter. Everything great!
Out of snapper, got the striped bass special. All fine!
Everything was amazing! Excellent service and outstanding food!! One of the best meals we have ever had!
We had a very slow service with our waiter, but overall the atmosphere, food, and company out shined this inconvenience.
food was really good it started to get a lot busier later in the evening. outside is loud but inside is real nice not too loud not quiet. the chicken piccata was so good and loaded mashed potatoes were amazing . our sever was really nice too
Had a fabulous time in the wine room
Such a special evening
Dragonfly was a disappointment - had reservations for 3 months yet they decided to seat us in the side room, missing the eclectic ambiance of the main room. Service was professionally polite but painfully slow. The snapper - shrimp special wasn't special, and the snapper dry. For the money ($100 plus per person with cocktails) they could have done a lot better to deliver against the value proposition. Hotel ZaZa is a "wow" but sadly Dragonfly barely got game over a "hotel restaurant".
Food overall was fantastic with plenty of dining options that provide plenty of options. Food is unique (a few small twists) that bring out an interesting flavor. Really enjoyed everything and although it is more expensive than a chain, it is not wildly expensive.
