While on our visit to Orlando from Toronto CA we had dinner @ Dragonfly. The Meal was great, although very busy and loud the service was on point & the owner even came over to welcome us. Worth the $$$

Food was great and different. Loved the different flavors. Disappointed in service. I asked 3 people to send waiter to us for drinks and it wasn't until we were done with our meal that he finally came by and we had to ask for more drinks. Very loud, we had to yell to speak to each other. Very impressed that the owner came by several times to talk to us. We would go again, however.

The last time I was in Orlando I asked locals where they go for sushi and every one said Dragonfly. It has terrific sushi for the novice - volcano roll, spider roll, etc - but for sushi freaks like me their selection was fantastic: very authentic Japanese preparations along with very creative flair. If I'd had more time I would have loved trying the chef's sushi tasting menu. Our waiter, Tung, was perfect, too: total knowledge of the menu and just enough attentiveness. I can't speak more highly of Dragonfly and will definitely be back every time I'm in Orlando.

Food and service were excellent. You needed to appreciate that the food comes out at different times, so best to make sure there are some appetizers or skewers to share. Our kids food came out last, but fortunately they had some bites of the skewers.

Service was very slow and several items were billed but never arrived to our table. Although when asked the items were removed no comp was offered given the issues. Mandatory 18% gratuity charged for party of 9 even though service was sub standard.

We have been vacationing in Orlando before and enjoyed Dragonfly but not this time.

My husband and I drive down from Jacksonville, FL as often as possible and book a hotel JUST to eat at this restaurant! It is our favorite, and we even bring our children sometimes too.
They have great sushi rolls, and the BEST pork and braised rib ramen we’ve ever had. Please stop by and check this place out. You will not be disappointed!

We had a great experience at DragonFly this past weekend. The food was great (we ordered sushi), and the server was attentive and knowledgeable. The only misstep was the on the appetizer we ordered. We thought we were ordering a simple fish tapas dish, but what came out was a small fish that still had the head, scales, and was not cut open at all. If the server had described it, we would have likely passed. When it came out, the server could tell we were a bit taken aback, but he went out of his way to make sure we were happy. Also, it was a well prepared dish, just not our speed. Overall, though, I would not hesitate to recommend DragonFly.

Best Omakase meal ever at Dragonfly.
We came twice in a week and this time with friends. We had the real "Omakase" meal, where the chef brings to you dishes until you want no more. Absolutely fabulous... Only 2 dishes (out of 7) were the same as the previous meal, and we gladly ate them again...
We love this place and go there at least once each time we visit Orlando

I have been there on several occasions. And Thoroughly enjoyed the food. The service this last time. All though the servers were friendly and cordial. They seemed understaffed. And getting a drink was a log process at the bar. But I believe not the bartenders Fault. Maybe the understaffed problem. The same with dinner. Understaffed. But I sure would recommend. And go again.

Fantastic omakase dinner. The "real" omakase, which means "chef's choice" (not the "omakase" on the menu, which is 4 predefined dishes)... This restaurant kept track of our previous omakase meals and we got dish after dish that were not only innovative, but most importantly different than what we ate there before... A fabulous experience. We will probably be back in a few days...
