I love sushi. When I looked at your menu for sushi I didn’t know what anything tasted like, but what I will say is what I got( niku niku, kuro) was so good. I loved it. Just one tip. For first timers, tell them what the sushi will taste like, since i did not know what anything on the sushi menu tasted like. Other than that, my time there was great. Keep up the good work

Overall, we had a great experience. Food was superb, service was much greater than I expected. A bit on the pricey side but I think this will make a great dinner option for those who are seeking for something for a special occasion.

Did not feel well after dining the next day and thought the crab salad was a bit strange tasting.

We were entertaining guests from out of town and Dragonfly was perfect. What a fun way to catch up with so many different taste options. Coctails were extraordinary as well. Thank you Hiro.

Visiting from northern US for the weekend. Went based on google reviews.

Not disappointed at at.

Very good Happy Hour menu. Very good kids menu and our 7 and 4 year old cleared their plates. If I’m in the area again, it will be must at least once.

Our server was so sweet, friendly and patient with us, she really made the experience so much better than it was already. The food was delicious, I highly recommend the short ribs and the pig ears - they were so tender! I’m sure we ate about four dozen of the fresh oysters. The only thing we regret not ordering is the prawns.

I love that the place has an elevated Asian fish market feel. I highly recommend this place!

I have been in this restaurant many times and also at the one in Gainesville. I writing this review because I love these restaurants but this is my second time that I had trouble with the host. She is not for this job. You can not put a person in charge , the face of the restaurant when you arrive, who has not the minimum idea how to be a HOST. We were there 1/11/2020 at night. Please do something about her.

Absolutely loved our trip to Dragonfly. It has some of our favorites from Gainesville and Orlando but also some really unique and exciting items specific to the Doral location. Would highly recommend it.

A well managed and very ambitious restaurant with a vast menu and a decent wine list. Nicely decorated and good service. As Scandinavians we have a huge problem with everything tasting of sugars, syrup and sweetners of all kinds. This is a general problem with american food that caters to their palate and not any worse here than in other US restaurants. For us it’s a serious downside in the culinary experience.
As good sushi as you are likely to find locally. Dishes are tasty and well presented.

Horrible experience! I got there a 7:15PM without reservation and asked for a table for two, the hostess advised us the restaurant was fully packed and understaffed and the waiting time could be around 20 min. Another lady interrupted her and said it would be 30-45 min to what my husband replied “we will wait” and she replied “well, it could be more than 45 min” it seems she just wanted us to leave, considering it was December 25th she didnt want to be there working. I took a seat to wait for my table and decided to book a reservation through Open Table for 7:30PM (ONLY 15 MIN WAITING TIME). 7:25PM i come to the hostess and she said now the kitchen told her not to seat anybody until they say so because they were extremely busy. I asked her how much longer it would take for her to sit us, and she said she didnt know, she needed to check with the kitchen every 5 min and then again advised it could be “30 more minutes” so i left! The restaurant was definitely packed, but i did see a few empty tables. I understand the understaffed situation and everything, but how can a hostess have me seated waiting for a table without KNOWING how long i have to wait. The food there is AMAZING, but i am not paying to be mistreated!

I had a great time. The waiter/server was full of character and totally understands the complexity of each dish on the menu. The drinks were ok, but maybe I’m just not used to the flavors of the drinks I had. Either way, it was a good time, in a good place, with good food (just wish the portions were adult sized).

We've been there several times before and all of those times the food was amazing. We order food an item was missing actually had to bring it to their attention. We ordered the wagyu beef several times before which was amazing but this most recent time it was cold the meat was tough overall everything that we ordered was not what we were used to. We tried the Mojito the worst mojito at ever had in my life.

Good for a group, that is why we went to Dragonfly. The service was terrible. Our server forgot to put our order in, so we ate after everyone else was done.
