Dragonfly was different than I expected. It's the attractive, upscale Sushi and Japanese Restaurant you'd expect to find in a tourist hub like Orlando. I found the 'House Special' Sashimi choices lacking. They came marinated in heavy doses of flavored oils which masked the special flavor of the fish. The Agedashi Tofu was tough. The Nigiri sushi was fine, especially the Uni, but the extensive list of rolls all had house names that made selection difficult. That said, they tasted fine.
We were seated at a very small table, in a dark part of the room....the only light being a tea candle and spill over from other parts of the restaurant. The table was so small that when the food started coming out, it wouldn't fit and the server started placing dishes overlapping.
Another annoying thing about Dragonfly: It suffers from the ubiquitous 'is everything ok' interruptions from the server. It maters little if you're in the middle of conversation, the server is going to butt in with that statutory question every 10 minutes or so.
If a 'safe' Japanese food eating experience, in a very nicely decorated restaurant, with decent food reasonably priced is what you're after...go here. If you want a non-tourist place, go somewhere else. I usually eat at Hanamizuki when I want authentic Japanese food (where the staff...unless it's the owner/chef, never interrupts or tells you their name)...I think I'll continue doing that.
