Dragonfly is one of the latest entries in the district known as SoFo. Owned by Emilio Figueroa and Gigi Zafero, the kitchen is run by Chef Roberto Treviño. This is the same trio that opened the Parrot Club, just across the street. The decor is contemporary with seating at the bar or cabaret tables. There is also a noodle bar that accommodates ten or more, and a menu offering eclectic Chinese-Latin fusion cuisine. Try the delicious Peking Duck Nachos or the Quesadilla Spring Rolls. There is full bar service available and a wine list.
I'll have to disagree with the experience of the Horrible Food/Long Wait opinion. It's true that you have to wait a long time at DragonFly but is worth it. Beside, this life is all about waiting... for everything! I'm a local and I�ve waited for table every time I go there. My friends and me LOVE this place and everybody in RP as well. Don't even pay attention at the bad reviews, just stop by and if you don't like to wait go early (before 7pm). Try the pork & amarillo dumplings, the noodles w. chicharones de pollo ...... the whole menu is delicious!! oohh and don't forget about the white dragon martini and Milk chocolate pot de creme brulee!! YUMMY!!! You�ll love it too!
I made a terrible mistake by coming here for New Year's. The wait was an hour long. When I called to reserve they should have told me that it was a wait list not a reservation. The night could have been salvaged if the food was good. It was far from good. The sashimi was old and rubbery, the maki rolls were absolutely bland. I've never tried worse sushi in my life, no lie. Locals also don't have a very good opinion about Dragonfly. I asked a number of people in my hotel and taxi drivers, all who said to stay away. I should have listened. Stick with Ramiro's or Ropa Vieja. Do not believe the positive reviews for this place!
The hostess, Claudia, was so accomadating and friendly. She made us feel very welcomed. We ate at the downstairs bar because we didnt want to wait. Its beautifully decorated and very interesting. The LatinAsian cuisine was excellent. We enjoyed everything. They played great music with variety.
The wait staff is like non other I have ever experienced. Outstanding, is an understatment. There was a group of 11 of us for New Year's Eve and they were packed, but our service was the best. From folding your dinner napkins, to replacing your drink napkins. The peking duck nachos are a must along with the shrimp tacos and the soy sauce smothered filet. Make sure to visit the couch in the bar area, this gives a very romantic area for you and that special someone. Take the waiters advise on the dessert menu!!!
i just got back from Puerto Rico Mon. all my friends recommended this place. let me tell you its awesome. its small and cramped but you get the NY vibe the food was excellent 3 dishes for 2 is good enough. then after we went to a place up the block which is also great. but man let me tell you their tuna was excellent and service was so attentive. im a restaurant person and i go regularly to restaurants in NYC. This is a hotspot check it out oh and you may see some famous faces as well.
ps the staff is also quite good looking
The tables were situated extremely close to each other. So when using chop sticks to eat your meal, if you had more than 2 entrees, 2 waters, and 2 glasses of wine you were bound for distruction. Our dining experience was allright. Although people were smoking cig's at all tables around you. I had the red snapper, which was very over cooked! My friend had the lobster, that was great. Meanwhile in our tight quarters my friend spilled her whole glass of wine....all over us, and since the tables are so flippin close, the guy next to us. Nothing was offered to us, a napkin, some soda water, another glass of wine. I must say an annoying dining experience.
You cannot come to Puerto Rico and not eat at Dragonfly! This is one of the most excellent restaurants and the food, drinks and atmosphere are unmatched. Try the Duck Nachos and the Shrimp Tempura Tacos. The food is well worth the wait and the service and staff are excellent!
The food was as gourmet as you can get. The price is reasonable compared to gourmet restaurants in downtown Charleston. Each dish had an unique taste and the desert menu was a more classic gourmet approach. The drink menu was quite creative. It is hard to give this restaurant a bad review. It is truly a must eat restaurant in Old San Juan.
