Our waiter Tung Did a fine job. The tuna Poki quite good. The duck was interesting. More for the botanical or flowery flavors Than the quality of the duck. The most unique part was the shaved Coconut on the edemame. It was moving from the heat when served. It was confronting but very interesting.

We visited for our 20th anniversary and our experience was fantastic. While I would have expected a little more variety in the 21-piece sashimi (it’s pretty ordinary with tuna, salmon, octopus, etc.) we were able to add some some uni and otoro, which helped. The service was spot on and they comped our dessert since we were celebrating. I would definitely go back.

Excellent food while following very strict COVID guidelines. Temperatures taken at the door, tables were spaced out, all servers were wearing masks and guests had to wear masks while moving about the restaurant. Sashimi was very fresh and the craveables menu offered a lot of options. Standouts were the skirt steak skewers, hamachi crudo, sashimi platter, spider roll, gyoza and bomb roll. Service was very efficient as well.

My kid's 18th birthday needed to be special and Dragonfly exceeded our expectations. We made a meal out of sushi rolls and $5 Craveables. All of the food was excellent and the service was phenomenal. We decided to make Dragonfly a part of every Orlando vacation from now on!

When every single item served in a restaurant is not just okay, not just good, but exceptional, well this level of consistency is uncommon, but very much on display at Dragonfly.

Pan fried gyoza, grilled shrimp, short ribs, garlic clam fried rice (w/o the garlic, thank you) nigori sushi of tuna, eel, himachi and octopus — all excellent, with the quality of sushi fish way off the charts.

Genial, competent table service. Large outdoor seating area so welcome in the age of Covid.

This was our first (but not last) visit so if I had to nit pick it would be about the physical plant. My impression is that the interior was stunning when new but it’s beginning to show some age and wear and tear. A freshening up would be beneficial but probably a major financial challenge during the pandemic. And a vacuum cleaning of the carpeted areas was in order, particularly in the men’s room.

But the ultimate measure of a restaurant is: do you want to return? And in this case our answer is an enthusiastic “yes!”
