    What a great find in Omaha! Such a nice atmosphere, interesting entrees and great service! It's a bit on the pricey side but the "Date Night" option is a nice feature. Would definitely come back for a special occasion!

    We had a great date night dinner. The mussels were delicious, excellent salads, best steak flavors in years. Amanda was our server and could not be better- attentive and friendly. The only negative is how small the place is -; you are sitting way too close to other diners

    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.

    We asked for a quiet table, since we were celebrating our anniversary. We were put at a quiet table.....in the corner, with zero air movement. The quite atmosphere was nice but completely still air is not ideal conditions for dinner. The food was good....good for foodies.

    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!

    To say this venue is AMAZING is a supreme understatement. I brought two "newbies" - one of which is a fairly accomplished cook - they were absolutely blown away! There is no doubt about it, this is THE place to eat to experience fine dining and phenomenal wait staff in Omaha.

    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.

    This is our second time at this restaurant. The food is really quite special and very reasonable. It is a storefront restaurant with a wonderful chef and excellent waitstaff. The prices are very reasonable. Our waitress recommended an excellent bottle of wine and the chef made me chocolate sauce for my ice cream dessert. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    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.

    Dined on 7/10/2014
    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.

    The food was adventurous with interesting combinations of flavors. The chef, however, needs to fine tune flavor profiles to balance the dishes. For example, the take on chicken cordon bleu we started with as an appetizer sounded amazing. In reality, the chicken was flavorless, the sauce a bit bland, and stuffing unmemorable. The flavor of my partner's main-- seared pork belly over sobe noodles-- was absolutely overwhelmed by a heavy dose of salty soy sauce. That being said, each course was cooked to technical perfection and there were some real stand out dishes in the meal. Dolce never quite shakes the feeling that it is in a strip mall and service is fine, but not great.

    We had a groupon for the fixed price menu, so decided to try it out. The fixed price menu has most of the options of the main menu, so it is a good way to go. Our appetizer was pork belly with watermelon, which was really nice. We both had the salad as the first course. Both the salmon and chicken were excellent entrees. The desert was the bread pudding which was good as well. Overall, it is a smaller resturant with white table cloths and simple, modern decorations. The service was excellent. Some websites described it as slow, but it was a good pace for a fine dining establishment. We were in and out in an hour and 15 minutes. I would recommend and we will try it again sometime.

    We had reservations for 4 at 6:30 pm on a Friday night, but my husband and I arrived at 6 for a pre dinner drink. We wanted to sit outside, and were promptly accommodated. I was anxious thinking we might be screwing up the restaurants reservation schedule because we would want to sit inside once the other two arrived, but I needn't have worried! They very smoothly took over for us, and the server who would be taking care of our dinner actually came out to serve us drinks! When we did get to dinner, we also checked in on Yelp and got the date night deal (appetizer, soup/salad, 2 entrees and a dessert normally $58) for only $45! So we promptly ordered more wine to make up the gap :). Service was excellent, food was great, a fun 3 hrs!

    My wife and I went in for our annivarsay for a romantic date night. The food was amazing but we were disappointed in our server. He couldn't remember what was in our food and he was very slow in service. He also forgot that we had a group on to help pay for the special occasion. Like I said great food but when you are paying for top of the line food you would think you could get knowledgeable servers who were concerned about the quality of the customers overall experience especially in such a small venue.
