Description: At Dragonfly's, our candlelit atmosphere is calming and provides for intimate spaces within the restaurant. Our romantic restaurant serves plenty of vegetarian and meat dishes and has two dining areas, a lounge, and two bars. We also offer our customers a communal noodle bar. Dragonfly's sexy, ruby red, and gold interior is transporting and designed to resemble an old opium den in tropical Asia.

We went here since Aquaviva's kitchen had closed for the night. We sat downstairs and while it was dimly lit, the atmosphere was intimate and inviting. We ordered the San Juan Roll and Tempura Dragon Roll, both were excellent. There was a delay in our second roll coming out as there were several large parties dining simultaneously. Our server brought us a complementary dish of chicken dumpling as an apology- they were outstanding! Highly recommend this establishment for the quality of food, service, and atmosphere.

We were very happy with our meal at the Dragonfly! We had the chicken dumplings, duck nachos, and the steak. Wow! Really good. We highly recommend!

We stumbled upon Dragonfly while looking for Parrot Club (same owners). We were quite pleased. The service was incredible! We sat outside--the breeze combined with the sounds of the old town set a perfect atmosphere.

Our wonderful waitress convinced us to try the cocktails. I had the Wasabitini and the other half went with the Sexy Water. They were both tasty, but I preferred the Wasabitini. It paired well with the INCREDIBLE tartare which was exquisite.

Our waitress also recommended the New Style Sashimi. We followed her advice (I wish I could remember her name because she was a delight) and ordered the salmon. It came thinly sliced and served with a warm sesame oil. This has to be one of the best dishes I've had in a long time. Do yourself a favor and order this as well!

Our other dishes were the Tropical Threesome Roll and the Korean Kimchee Dragon fajitas. Both were very good. All food is served family style, so we were able to share and taste.

This is a great place with a great menu and a very attentive staff. It is worth the visit!

This was our second night in San Juan and had been trying Puerto Rican food, so we were looking for something a little different. As we strolled by, we looked at the menu and saw the pulled pork lettuce wraps, so we decided to give it a try.
Ashley was our server and was just delightful. We eachordered the ginger iced tea and split the pulled pork lettuce wraps.
The blending of the spices of the meat was perfect and the pineapple salsa and mango sauce (too spicy for him, but I LOVED it!) was yummy! We finished it off with their chocolate lava cake, which was topped with coconut ice cream (which was a nice twist to the usual vanilla). It was a very pleasant meal!
