Creating intimacy and the “perfect” dinner is easy when the guest list is limited to your closest friends and family, but when you’re creating a private dining experience for a large group, an event, or even business contacts, it can be much more challenging.

Small, Large, or Anywhere In-Between

From groups of 10 for private parties—to cocktail receptions, or whole restaurant buyouts for up to 600, Dragonfly was built to accommodate any private dining request.

Chef’s Table

With seating for 10, the semi-private Chef’s Table is perfect for small corporate parties, birthday dinners, or intimate gatherings.

The Patio Lounge is perfect for company parties, large celebrations, or any event that benefits from having the real-estate to spread out. It’s the perfect layout to set up stations and/or outdoor entertainment, and with a reception capacity of 35-40, there’s still room to move around.

Special Events & Full Venue Buyouts

If you’re looking for a truly unique experience, make our place yours! It only happens about twice a year, but we are able to transform the restaurant and outdoor space to perfectly accommodate even the largest group for cocktail style receptions, seated dinners, private luncheons, or team building events like interactive sushi classes, sake training courses, fish fabrication classes, or private cooking demonstrations.

Food: The Great Equalizer

We’ve built our entire concept around food being the key to meaningful connections. We use small plates and portion sizes designed to encourage sharing and sampling of a variety of artfully crafted dishes…think Japanese Tapas, and you’ll get the picture of what the true Izakaya experience is all about. But, we understand that not all groups are created equal. Some like the traditional experience of a coursed or plated meal. With our Family-Style Izakaya menus and Traditional Plated Packages, we’ve got the flexibility to accommodate both.

Creating Lasting Connections

Our success is built on the joy of meaningful connections. Creating memorable experiences. Constructing artful flavors. It takes careful planning and attention to detail. It requires teamwork. We’re excited to share our space and partner with you to make your next event truly unforgettable.
