First review
Dragonfly is a higher-end restaurant in Hotel ZaZa, a full-service hotel with a swank and sophisticated layout and style. The restaurant serves general American cuisine from a smaller menu that emphasizes steak and seafood entrees. Patrons often wear suits for dinner, but there is a bar environment that is less formal and noisier, so it’s hard to categorize Dragonfly as a fine dining restaurant. It has attributes of one though.

The Hotel ZaZa has 154 rooms and 4 floors. It’s posh but comfortable and has Mediterranean style architecture. The restaurant is fairly small with seating in a front room with a bar and additional seating in the back. Both areas can get noisy but the back area tends to be quieter. A private room near the bar can be reserved. The two person table was small, barley large enough for a few plates. Real tablecloths were standard.

Dinner included a side dish of goat cheese tater tots that was big on presentation and light on quantity. It had a strong garlic smell. The texture was slightly greasy with a fried exterior and creamy interior, but the taste worked fairly well and was a winner if you like garlic. A speckled spaghetti vegetarian entrée also was a modest portion and had a high price. Spaghetti was excessive relative to vegetables, but the vegetables were tender and appetizing. The light buttery taste was satisfying, but the dish was too oily. Garlic mashed potatoes were light and flavorful. An ice cream cookie sandwich was more generously sized and the cookie dough taste was like homemade, but the cookies were hard to chew. While the food was average to good, the drinks were excellent. A cucumber vodka martini, peach martini without jalapeno and Franciscan cabernet from Napa all hit the mark taste wise, but make sure to bring your wallet. Service for both dinner and at the bar was pleasant and professional. While the food was reasonable, the martinis rocked. Dragonfly works better for a chilled glass than a warm plate.
