    Small menu ensures attention to detail on each plate and well selected ingredients. Our steaks were flavorful high quality meat seared to perfect medium rare. Service was excellent. Professional. Knowledgeable. Soft lighting added a romantic touch. A good choice for couples. Get dressed up for a fine dinner here.

    Food-amazing! Service felt a bit rushed. Our table made me feel like I was in a box, could have been dining anywhere. We were right next to a half wall the wall behind had no art work or details. Luckily, my husband switched seats with me so I could see a bit of the dining room.

    I would not return to this restaurant because the overall experience was bad. The atmosphere was very cold. The steak was great, and so was the soup. However the rest of the meal had way to much vinegar which made the dinning experience bad.

    We went to Dolce for wine and dessert after dining with another establishment for dinner. First, the service seemed a bit cold but that turned around pretty quickly. I think the server was just trying to get a feel for us as diners. I ordered a nice glass of red wine with the daily creme brûlée which was chocolate macchiato. The wine was great. I generally expect a smaller pour from more expensive restaurants but that was not the case. It was a nice large glass with a generous pour. I ranked the food lower because the brûlée was over torched. It was torched beyond the hard candy level and tasted burnt. I couldn't eat it. The chocolate macchiato custard on the other hand was perfect! I'll be back to try the scallops soon.

    Enjoyed my meal at Dolce. I loved the soup special and my Tuscan steak entree. I did not enjoy the taste of the cheesecake, it is a different texture and taste then "regular" cheesecake. That being said, it is only my preference, not the fact that it wasn't "good". The staff was friendly and did not rush the meal. I would go back to Dolce with out hesitation.

    Chicken cordon blue appetizer has a bad charred taste as chicken was raw. Soup was watered down. Salad had no dressing and main dish was just"blah". Overall, epic fail...many, many other places in Omaha with much better food.

    We have been coming to Dolce for the past two years when we drive through omaha. It is a great find. The food is wonderful, fresh, and innovative. They have a good wine list and our server was able to recommend a very good bottle of wine that was not on the menu. I would very much recommend this restaurant for a relaxing, fun evening out.

    My husband and I did the 4 course date night prix fix menu. We had the risotto and it was creamy and wonderful with fresh peas in it. My husband had the squash soup and I had the house salad. They were both wonderful. The salad had a house vinagrette and I don't normal care that much for vinagrette but it was pared perfectly with the other ingredients in the salad. My husband had the Tuscan steak which was cooked perfectly and I had the Kobe Ragu which was yummy. Just the right amount of meat, sauce and pasta. I was stuffed after our entrees but the date night menu includes a dessert. We ordered the bread pudding. I love bread pudding and this is one of the best I have ever had. It was very light with a yummy caramel sauce.

    We had a perfect dining experience AGAIN at Dolce. I was proud to take my sister to the restaurant to enjoy a wonderful meal with us. She is a great judge of a great meal and agreed with us that this was perfect! Our waitress was very informative and a delight. Her recommendations are to be commended. From the wine choice, to the mussels, the swordfish, topping it off with the bread pudding. The chef is amazing. Thank you Dolce!

    We had considered trying Dolce but the online menu and prices initially kept us away. We received a Dolce groupon as a gift and gave the resaurant a try. The food was truly outstanding. The appetizer of the day and specials were better than what the online menu had lead us to expect. We decided that we would come again and be very willing to pay full price.

    Our appetizer was ok, salad course was very good, main dinner was ok and dessert left a bit to be desired. Our service was very lacking. The table next to us was served by the same server and got a great service. I am sure it helped that the server knew them. The table next to us had their silverware changed with courses which didn't happen at our table, they were asked if they wanted fresh pepper with their salads, we didn't. My water glass sat empty quite often as well. The restaurant itself was small but nice although the tables were a bit to close together for me.

    Duck: Tender, sliced, mixed with vegetables (parsnips, pear, fennel, greens - perfectly cooked), a blackberry sauce worth licking the plate. Smooth, tasty & satisfying cauliflower soup with a touch of fennel & duck skin. Argentinian Malbec - light tanins, touch of fruit, yet full flavor. Ended with a delicious dessert cheesecake: ginger, hazelnut, blackberry balsamic, and full flavor decaf. All this and more for $75 for two, but too much food for seniors like us.

    An unhurried atmosphere, terrific service, and delicious food well prepared and wonderfully presented - this about sums up the experience at Dolce. On a busy Saturday night, one can feel a bit crowded, but the service and food more than compensate. AC is cold, so take a wrap if you are easily chilled. And don't plan to hurry on a busy night. Just relax and enjoy.

    I was very disappointed in the menu choices with the new ownership at Dolces. For a noon lunch, there were only three tables with people. That's a statement in itself. Sad. Finally, after looking over the menu for a lunch sandwich or an appealing salad, the waitress finally mentioned the special being a BLT. It was way over-priced and my friend and I left still hungry. She paid $31.00 for two very skimpy salads with the sandwiches that were very small. We won't go back when there's a lot more places such as Bravo. You can get bread with the oils and a salad special for $7.00 that over loads a plate.

    Purchased a groupon and used it here for an anniversary dinner. It is a simple, yet lovely place to dine and service is excellent. The food was very, very good and different so nice to have something you wouldn't get at every other place. Hope to return to try some of their other selections. The mussels for an appetizer were just exceptional.

    First the waitress brought the wrong wine (white instead of red). She poured it before I could catch it. We ended up keeping what she brought. Then she brought me the wrong salad. That I sent back. The appetizer and entree were good. She felt so bad about the wine and salad mix up that she brought us an extra desert. Thank goodness! They forgot to cook the cream brûlée. When we broke into the sugar it was all runny. Raw egg, not good. The cheesecake was awesome though. I would definitely go back for that.

    we went to Dolce again using a Groupon which was an outstanding deal. This is the first time back since under new ownership. The waitress and bar tender are novices at the wine, but tried very hard. Service is not the same as before, but hopefully will improve. The food was wonderful as usual so I'm not complaining too much.

    We tried the couples meal. The main meal itself was very good. The bread pudding for dessert was scorched. When going to the rest room, the hallway is very narrow because of the lockers. I don't thing a wheel chair or someone with a handicap that would use crutches or something of the nature would be able to use the restroom.
