Dragonfly Robata Grill & Sushi offers authentic Japanese gastropub cuisine with a modern twist, featuring a variety of grilled items and specialty sushi rolls. Each item is prepared utilizing traditional robata grilling techniques and fresh ingredients for an assortment of uniquely composed dishes. Dragonfly Robata Grill & Sushi is among few in the nation to bring authentic robata grilling to Orlando, which uses special white coals called binchō-tan that heat up to 1,000 degrees Celsius and burn cleanly without smoke. The high level of heat fully cooks proteins and vegetables and captures their natural flavors. Dragonfly Robata Grill & Sushi is ideal for many occasions, offering an elegant, yet comfortable ambiance. Plus, private dining, a chic Chef’s Table, a lakeside patio, a sushi bar, a VIP room and more are available. Each detail of our modern restaurant has been thoughtfully considered for the ultimate dining experience.

Sushi was good... not exceptional, but good. Protein in the sushi was very small. High prices for robata and very small portions. (Five dollars for 6 one-inch roasted corn cob). Waiter advised robata octopus was tender but ended up being a horrible, chewy mess. Ramen was very good.

We've had much better sushi for much more reasonable prices. Wouldn't return or recommmed sadly.

We dined at Dragonfly for their special Easter brunch. The food was so fresh and delicious! There was a large selection of choices- everything from poke bowls, hand rolls, sushi, bao buns, ramen, sliders, etc. We had a great brunch and hope this will become a more frequent offering!

Overall an excellent restaurant! The food was amazing and the pork ramen to die for. Nice atmosphere, my only complaint (and very minor) is its a little loud, must be the acoustics of the room, as it's not a roudy restaurant. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

What a lovely place. Hidden behind a huge Greek inspired fountain, you can dine at a chic table inside, the sushi bar, or outside on thier patio overlooking more fountains and palm trees. The food is AMAZING. You can do several small dishes if you'd like (the wait staff is very attentive) or just do a meal straight up. We have only come here twice (we live in MN and visit FL in the spring) and it is always worth the price. It seems expensive, but given the quality it's worth it. The steaks are some of the best I've ever had. The sushi is great. Even the simple appetizers like bacon wrapped asparagus and the brussel sprouts taste better than they ought to.
Not too noisy, not too dark. The menu slightly changes from time to time. The chef's choices are worth taking the risk for.

We attended for a Bachelorette party and our server was so on point. None of us had ever been and he was super helpful with choosing items for the table, as well as recommending drinks based on our occasion. The food was all delicious and we had a good variety with sushi, crab fried rice, tempura, and more.

This was my wife and I's first time dining with Dragonfly. It was definitely different from what we are used to dining. We didn't know going into it that the entire menu was tapas-style dining. We ordered a good variety of dishes. Although I know everything was tapas-size portion, I do wish that the portions were a little bit larger. We ended up ordering seconds of a few things. Overall, our experience was good. We would definitely return.

We were in Orlando for a business trip and a group of us was hoping to find a good sushi restaurant. The Hyatt concierge recommended Dragonfly so we decided to try it and we were all extremely glad that we did. They were very accommodating for our group which grew to 11 people but most importantly the food quality went beyond our expectations. We picked the Chef's Choice option and all of the sushi rolls and sashimi were excellent. We highly recommend for anyone looking for delicious sushi!

Beautiful restaurant that was probably half full on a Sunday evening. I've been before and was pretty shocked at how bad the service had gotten. We were first approached by a waiter named Chris, only to have him disappear. We were then helped by a lovely young woman who's name I couldn't tell you because everything she said to us was inaudible. The service was slow but the food was delicious. Maybe we just got a new server on a slow night. Still, I'll be back.

I went to dinner with a close friend of mine for a special night out, as he’s embarking on his journey into sushi. I made the reservation and spoke with David, the manager of the restaurant, and decided to take a trip to the wild side and put the decision of what we we’re going to eat in the hands of the chef, also known as Omakase. We had several incredible courses, from winter vegetables to fantastic nigiri, and had two one-of-a-kind rolls made for my friend and me. The best dish of the night was the duck breast, smoked for a week and accompanied by an ume plum reduction and sauce. It was quite memorable, and we had such an awesome time. I highly recommend trying out the Omakase. It provides you with a sense of trust in the chef and you can relax and just eat what’s put in front of you. It’s especially good for adventurous types who have a hard time nailing down what to order. It made for an incredible evening, and I can’t wait to come back for more!

Sushi at a higher level. Foodie + sushi = Dragonfly. The dishes are more unique, everything is just a little different all in a good way. Really nice wine list too, good price ranges available.

Went for Valentine's Day dinner. The food was incredible. Service was fast, friendly, and all the staff was very knowledgeable about the menu. They even had someone coming around to take photos of couples there celebrating. Fantastic experience! The restaurant itself has a very composed feel and the music playing was very western. It makes the ambiance more generic American than Japanese. Maybe fusion? In any case, it didn't feel genuine hence the one less star there.
