I am allergic to Gluten and Dairy and they were very accommodating! Our waiter went out of the way to level our rocky table. The food was amazing!

Our server was great. The manager/bar server was also amazing. The short ribs is the most tender mouth watering dish.

Only thing we had 9p reservation & arrived about 90 min early (hungry birthday girl with plenty tables avail) and wasn’t seated until 20:30 at a table. Other than that everything was great. Food amazing $ drinks strong & delicious

This place never disappoints. The food is always perfect, the ambiance is relaxing, and the service is impeccable.
Our most recent visit was no exception and our server was very helpful w/ drink suggestions and off menu items.

I was the most disappointed that when I made a reservation, I mentioned we were coming to celebrate a birthday, but when we were there, no one ever acknowledged that.
Each of the separate QR code menus has to be downloaded and opened separately, or else you can't zoom in to be able to read any descriptions, which was annoying and made meal selection slower.
The miso cauliflower appetizer is delicious, but I was shocked at how much such a tiny serving of veggies cost since that specific appetizer was not on the happy hour menu.
Fixtures and details in bathroom are aging, wearing, and starting to look dirty.
If I lived closer, I wouldn't NOT go, but I still wouldn't go very often. Having to battle traffic for 45 minutes to get there for a special occasion that didn't feel very special? Only if the birthday boy really wants to do it again.

The food we had was really good. We ordered the bomb sushi, California roll, volcano sushi roll, mango tango sushi roll, and the steamed buns with pork belly. Finished it off with the fried cheesecake which exceeded how good I thought it was going to be. The decor was really nice and the ambiance was great. I would honestly go back just for the fried cheesecake.

The online reservation system was easy and when I had to change the time on the day of, someone called me back before opening hours and was accommodating. The sushi was delicious and fresh, as always. This is one of the only places In Florida that I order uni from and it always tastes fresh and delicate. The ikura is marinated to perfection. The pork ramen was also very good. My favorite item from the grill was the gyu with chimichurri. SO delicious.

We have dined at Dragonfly many times and have always enjoyed it. Last night, we arrived at 5:00pm upon their opening. Our table was in a great location but, it was very sticky. Then, we were handed menus but, they were also sticky. Kinda gross. Fortunately, our server was friendly and he and the staff were fast and efficient. And, our dishes was nicely presented and delicious. So, despite the stickiness, we had a good experience and will return.

First time guests. Excellent Service and Food. I mistakenly thought our reservation was at 7:45, but it was actually 7:30 and our Uber was late. The hostess worked with us and sat us immediately when we arrived at 8:05. Food came out promptly and was very tasty! Definitely a common place for us to eat moving forward.

The food came out as soon as it’s prepared and it was prepared quickly - it came out VERY quickly - and was high quality and tasted amazing. The servers were extra snappy, extremely polite, knowledgeable about the menu, (we asked for a drink that hadn’t been on the menu in years cus I read an outdated one online, and she knew it and they made it anyway with a single ingredient substituted from the original) and willing to do whatever to make us happy. The food was best I’ve tried in the area so far in the central Florida area for sushi. And I liked the extensive drink menu; the cocktails were very easy to drink, too. And the setting was beautiful and comfortable.

Sat outdoors. Ordered a few items from each section of menu. Sushi was very fresh, sake, and drinks were well prepared and served. Braised ribeye was flavorful and all of the veggies were fresh.

Dragonfly always has excellent unique tastee food. In my experience it's a five star restaurant but only moderately priced. My wife and I had all we could eat for $90. Many many dishes. The Hamachi cama is always my favorite but everything there is reliably super tasty. At a fancy steakhouse type restaurant it's $150 easily. Money aside, it's great food and a great experience.

We came for drinks/apps and thought the $5 pandemic-related menu might still be available. Seems that menu was retired recently. We were there during happy hour so still many food & drink items to choose from.
