The Flamingo Crossings location is my favorite location so far. I go the the Miami locations a lot but the service and overall experience is a lot better here. Lan, our waiter, was super sweet and patient with us as well.

Our diverse menu features sushi, steak, veggies, seafood, noodles, and rice dishes, but a must-try on your visit—your favorite(s) from our robatayaki (robata) grill. One of the nation’s first to use traditional robata grilling techniques & white-oak (binchōtan) charcoal, our team has perfected the art of grilling using the smokeless 1,000° heat of binchotān to unlock the natural flavors of vegetables and proteins.

A favorite of locals, conventioneers, and tourists, Dragonfly is centrally located 3 miles from the Orange County Convention Center and IDrive, 4 miles from Universal, and 5 miles from Disney. Whether you’re looking to host a private event, chef’s table dinner, enjoy a fountain-side patio or just relax in the lounge, we’ve got you covered. Join us and share in our #artfulflavors!

We gathered here with family to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We received excellent service and the food was delicious. My only issue was it was absolutely freezing inside. I could understand having it cold if it were busy but it wasn’t and our entire table of 8 were frozen popsicles. Very unnecessary. Other than that it was great and we will be back but next time I will have a parka with me.

Service and chef were amazing! We had a soy allergy in our party of six and they went above and beyond to make sure that person could eat something and still enjoy the experience. Highly recommend!

Great experience for 1st timers. Food was decent. They do 5 and 6 course meals which I find unnecessary and overpriced. Drinks were overpriced too. Should be able to just order your main course. We were visiting from out of town so we still enjoyed the experience.
