Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa Ratings and Reviews
Dinner was great. The experience declined when we moved to the pool area. Bar service was non existent at the pool and the employees standing at the gate were less than helpful. We were hotel guests and that was the worst part of our experience. We were celebrating 2 birthdays.
We cannot wait to come back! This was our first visit to Dragonfly and we thoroughly enjoyed it. When you walk through the front door of the hotel, you are enchanted by the unusual decor. Likewise in the restaurant itself: eclectic to say the least! The service was some of the best we've enjoyed. Our waiter was superb, and managers stopped by frequently to see how we were enjoying the evening. We loved everything we ordered: from the small plates (cheese plate was a nice mix, ahi tuna tacos nicely spicy) to delicious onion soup (would come back just for the soup), and our entrees (beef, pork, scallops and salmon) were all delicious, as we passed the forks and tasted each other's entrees for our party of four. Delicious food, nicely flavored, great sauces... we will plan to return soon!!! You will enjoy dinner here!
While several employees checked on us throughout the meal, our waiter wasn't as interested. The guy that delivered our food was by far the best experience of service we received. He was cheerful and friendly. Our actual waiter could have taken a note from him.
My wife and I went to the Morton Meyerson Symphony Center on Saturday, so selected Dragonfly based on reviews and location to the Symphony. We had a reservation, and the hostess literally did not even smile or say one word when we entered, just stared at us. I told her of our reservation, she walked us to a table then turned around and walked away, again saying nothing. We were seated in the very crowded and loud bar area, even though there is an entire dining room just through the doors, and only 3 tables were taken in the dining room. We found that very odd. You have a nice romantic dining room and you seat us in the bar? Also, she sat us right near an exterior door. There was a wedding going on, so the door literally was opening every 5-10 seconds. It was a chilly night, so we didn't care for the seat location at all. We asked our waiter, Kevin, if we could go into the dining room, which he gladly took us. Kevin was outstanding. He was friendly and attentive and he was definitely the highlight of the dinner. I gave service 3 stars, but Kevin was a 5. The hostess was a zero. The prices are high, in our opinion, especially since we felt the food was average. When we went to leave, the same hostess never said a word to us again. At least she was consistent. There are many restaurants in DFW that I'd rather spend my $150 on for 2 glasses of wine, 2 salads and 2 dinners. I doubt we'd go back.
First time for my date but has been years since I have dined at Dragonfly. It was fantastic. Server was outstanding. Engaging yet not to much so. Great table presence. Food was wonderful. I had the fish special and my date had the red snapper. Flavors exploded in your mouth and while we usually share an entree this time we had our own and each ate everything on our plates. Great bar scene and good place for people watching. We were never rushed or felt like the table was needed. It was a wonderful evening and can't wait to go back.
It was my birthday and I was celebrating with friends and family. The service was kind but I just had an issue with how much delay there was in getting through dinner. Although it was a bit frustrating at first, they ended our night with complimentary desserts and genuine apologies
Met a business associate here for dinner on a weekday night. Although the place was still crowded at 9:00 p.m. it was not excessively loud. We could easily hear each other but there was enough white noise that our conversation was still private. The by-the-glass wine choices were much better than average - I liked that we were able to get very nice wines despite the fact we each only wanted one. The food was the real highlight - spectacular. One red meat dinner, one fish and both were done to perfection with amazing taste. Definitely out of the ordinary flavors. I will be returning to this area frequently in 2017 given my client location and will make this restaurant my "go-to" destination for business and pleasure. Highly recommended.
Hot spot where folks go to been scene. Very happening bar and bar outside had good crowd. Service was very good. Veteran server who was able to multi tasks. Great wine selection but expensive. Smaller portions and food was average or just a little better than average. Location and reputation of being place to be is driving this place. Would go back.
It was a quiet birthday dinner. It was perfect from the delicious meal to the great dessert. The big flirt which is the most wonderful cocktail paired with lamb lollipops 🍭
Started the night off great.
It ended with a salted Carmel dessert and a candle for me to blow out.
I had been wanting to come here for awhile and I was not disappointed. This is such a pretty place - it just makes you feel special from the minute you drive up.
Horrible experience! My husband and I went for NYE. We had to pick from a very limited "special menu". The appetizer I wanted was out, but our server didn't tell us that until 30 minutes after ordering. We didn't get the apps until an hour after ordering. Mind you, our reservation was at 9:15 (the only one they had), so it was almost 10:30 by the time we received our first course. The app was lukewarm but tasted okay. We ordered a bottle of wine to have with dinner. The service took so long that we finished the bottle before our entrée was served and had to order another for our entrée (how calculated, Dragonfly). The second bottle we wanted was also sold out. We both ordered the ribeye medium. It came out charred on the outside and rare/med. rare inside. It took us 2 hours to get that poorly cooked and barely warm ribeye. The gnocchi served with it was dry and room temp and my collard greens were nothing but thick stems. The cake my husband ordered for dessert was hard, cold, and dry. We did not plan on spending our NYE countdown there, but since the entire service took 3 HOURS, we had no choice. The place was WAY too crowded and people were bumping our table and chairs the entire night with no excuse me's or sorry's. Our server never checked on us with any of the courses served. The staff never once apologized for the wait or being out of what they were advertising. We had to wait until we got home to go to the bathroom because it was nearly impossible to get to through the crowd and the wait was probably as long as the food. All of this for over $400..for 2 people!! We were excited to try the place when we got there; we will NEVER go back.
Dragonfly offers a consistently excellent dining experience. The hostess, manager and waiters are all friendly, experienced and very kind. Whether I have been there for a business lunch or an informal snack, it is always an enjoyable time. I actually feel like I have been on a brief vacation when I leave there. Perhaps it is because of the lovely hotel and its interesting decorations, but I think more likely it is from the welcoming staff and good food.
Brought my girlfriend here on Saturday. The first seat presented to us was right next to a door where the 34 degree cold air blasted in as guests frequently passed through. We were moved to tiny table on the other side of a glass divide which was cramped, but more comfortable than being next to that door. Our waiter was genial enough, but got our soup orders wrong, brought them out at the incorrect time (my girlfriend wanted to have soup as her meal and it was brought out 20 minutes before my meal arrived). Despite never delivering my soup, it was charged on the receipt. The waiter's tip reflected that.
This is our second -and last- visit to this restaurant. Not an awful experience, but "lackluster" is the word I'd use to describe Dragonfly.
The manager needed our table for a larger party and asked if we'd mind moving. We hadn't even ordered our drinks and we were happy to move to another table. The manager brought us a bottle of wine and then comped our entire meal (which was delicious). Completely unexpected, over the top service.
Wonderful service, food was good wine selection was also good with reasonable prices. One person in our group said his scallops were "rubbery". The wait staff was exceptional, very attentive. The only criticism was the noise
from the bar area was so loud at times it was difficult to carry on a conversation.
We went to Dragonfly for a girls' Christmas lunch and it certainly did not disappoint. We were seated in the "private library" room which was great, but the entire space is really cool so we would have been fine anywhere in the place. Food and service were outstanding, I had the trout which was excellently prepared. Would definitely come back for another special outing. Pricey.
We have been coming to Dragonfly for several years on Thanksgiving & Christmas as a couple & also with a small group of friends. On these two holidays many restaurants are closed or choose to serve over-sized buffets. We do not care at all for the highly priced, institutional-tasting food too often offered on these holidays. Dragonfly always has a regular menu that changes seasonally & Chef Landsberg also creates a special menu for the specific holiday. This is wonderful because he allows us to choose & mix courses from both of these palate pleasers & it enlarges the array of choices. We couldn't be more pleased, satisfied, or loyal. Thank you for making each holiday memorable & special!
Another great meal at Dragonfly. We went to Dragonfly for Thanksgiving dinner with friends. Innovated twists on your old Thanksgiving favorites. Turkey and duck were both delicious along with a variety of side dishes. Great dessert selections. Service was solid as always. Will definitely be back.
