Love it! – We had our Christmas party here on December 8th. I cant begin to tell you how wonderful we were treated! The night started with the DJ playing tunes a 7:00 pm, great way to start a party for hairstylists since we like to dance. I ordered 8 different appetizers for the party, all were very good. Anything we wanted, we got. I would highly recommend Blue Dragonfly for your next party, or just stop by for dinner.
NOW HAS POOL TABLES & A JUKE BOX! – I've always loved BDF but I'm especially excited now that they have 2 pool tables & Juke box upstairs now.
If you haven't been it is def. A MUST TRY PLACE, you won't be dissappointed.
Excellent find for happy hour! – My husband and I wanted to get some late night eats, and so we went onto citysearch to find a restaurant that was open after 10 and worth the drive. There were some very nice reviews about Blue Dragonfly, so we decided to go for it. Am I ever glad we did! We came in shortly before their upstairs bar closed, and I know the bartender probably wasn't thrilled to see us, but he didn't show it for one moment. He was absolutely wonderful about seating us, taking our orders, even checking with the restaurant kitchen (which was closing for anything other than bar orders) to see if they would make my husband a steak! He went out of his way to provide us with happy hour prices (even though we technically ordered after happy hour) and was prompt about getting us drinks and whatnot. The prices, also, at Blue Dragonfly, although they are a mite steep for the dining room (it is worth it, trust me!), are absolutely unbeatable in the bar. $4 Happy hour food, including burgers and fries (literally the best burgers I've ever had), lamb skewers, and more. Their drinks are original, inventive, and well-presented.We have already been back 3 times with friends, and I will definitely be back soon!
Dragonfly is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get! – We have eaten there 12 times. We have had times that we have had the best food and extraordinary service. Lately, they had only one person serving the bar and the restaurant. I felt guilty for asking for anything but I was starving after waiting for 20 minutes. We got old bread that was stale. They changed their menu and got nothing we wanted. I gave it to my dog it was so bad. Another time they were out of several things and gave me stuff I was allergic to and did not tell us they substituted without mentioning it! The other times we have been there had great food, service, and environment.
truly awful – I have never had worse service or food anywhere. Every single order at our table was screwed up, they were out of nearly every item we ordered from the menu, and the food that did come out (which took forever) was somehow both ice cold and extremely overcooked. One person at our table ordered coffee and was given tea. When she pointed it out, she was told that it was not tea, it was, in fact coffee. I don't know too many people who don't know the difference between how tea and coffee tastes, so it made no sense to me that the waitperson chose to argue this point. We were the only customers at dinner time, so it's not like they were slammed.
Love Love Love It!!! – This place is simply fabulous!!! The "Mixologists" are incredible, the Staff is as well. Everything is perfect, the music, the atmosphere, the food, the drink etc. It is simply wonderful. Great drink menus etc. Very knowledgable staff, etc. Happy hour 3 to 6 and 10 to 12 pm. Can't go wrong!!! You have to come check it out, downtown hipness, on the EastSide!!! You won't be sorry!
cozy - friendly - yummy – Amazing service! Friendly and experienced staff! Raf is always so accomadating and helpful! My girlfriends and I love the happy hour, we will have to make it in for dinner soon! Can't wait to enjoy the cozy laid-back space again!
LOVE IT! – The staff AND the GM are always pleasant and professional. Great seasonally adjusted menu too, there's nothing like it in that area. The atmosphere is relaxed earlier in the week and more party-like on the weekends. They also try to keep it interesting with different exclusive events. I highly recommend checking it out.
wow what a lemon – who opened this place? they were out of everything i ordered the seafood tasted old, and the manager
was quite rude . not going here again
(I ate dinner at the bar on a Tuesday night. Great bartender and friendly staff The food was incredible and the the prices were perfect. Blue Dragonfly has beautiful bar and two nice flat screens tv's that are very discreet and don't take away from the great design. I'm looking foward to their downstair lounge on the weekends. I Highly recommend this place.
