    The sweetbreads were the best I've ever had. The 31 day dry aged Rib Eye was amazing. Tender with a great depth of flavor. Our server, Dante, was extremely knowledgable about the menu, friendly and professional. All of the staff, from the hostess to the bussers were friendly and professional. Truly an exceptional dining experience. We will definitely be back.

    Unbelievably AMAZING!!!! What an amazing experience! We could have not had a better experience. Expressed to the bartender, manager, chef and kitchen staff how amazing that bone in tenderloin was!!! Better than any steak house to date yet; including Capitol Grille, Trulucks, McCormick and Schmits, Vic and Anthonys, Pappas Bros all in Houston and better than Besh Steakhouse in NOLA and Gordan Ramseys in Vegas!!! Thank you so very very much!

    Fabulous dining experience! Doris is a Steak lovers paradise - BEST steaks I've ever tasted! I had the tenderloin and it melted in my mouth. And the appetizers are just as delicious. LOVED the artichoke salad. Service is exceptional. - The atmosphere is contemporary with a warm and exciting feel. Can't wait to return.

    Doris is a descent steak restaurant that failed to prove itself. Our dinner did not start on a positive note when a member of our party had fruit-flies swarming around his old fashion and then discovered bubble gum had transferred from the chair to his slacks. The server did have the chair swapped & offered complimentary port to compensate him for ruined trousers. The steak was good but not special. A hilarious moment was when I asked the server for a steak knife & she said it isn't part of the place setting b/c a butter knife should be able to cut their meat. She gave me the knife b/c I was unable to cut a medium rare strip with a dull butter knife. I don't mind this arrogance typically, but you have to back it up. Doris did not.

    Don't bother with this restaurant if you want to talk to your dinner mates. You will not be able to hear them at all. The tomato salad is AMAZING, and the only part of the dinner worth mentioning. The rest was overwhelmed by the prices for single glasses of wine (ridiculous) and the NOISE. We will not return, having "been there, done that". Would not recommend this to another couple. Might be ok for people watching if alone, sitting at the bar.

    The surprise of my week. The 23oz bone in ribeye was the best I've ever eaten. None can compare and I love steak. The service, Beth, was fantastic. On hole when I return to New Orleans this will be my first and last stop for dinner. My wife loved everything about your restaurant and so did I .It's a 5+ star restaurant.

    Could be so right on so many levels but wasn't. Service was disorganized and amateurish. I've seriously had more attentive waiters at breakfast places and diners around town. Food was OK and, at these prices, should have been a whole lot better. Room was more like a casual eatery. And, if you are going to tell people when they call that shorts and flip flops are not cool, then shorts and flip flops should not be in the dining room when you are there. 2 stars only for the tomato celebration salad

    Dined at Doris for lunch on Sunday of Labor Day weekend. We're repeat customers, but first time for lunch. All in all, a spectacular experience. I told my wife that our first visit was incredible, but as hard as it is to believe, it keeps getting better. We had the Tomato Celebration and Artichoke appetizers and shared a bone-in rib-eye. Everything exceeded expectations. Looking forward to the next visit.

    Doris is a great new addition to the French Quarter. Located in a very old building but the interior is modern and beautiful. Doris' is a restaurant for meat lovers. My wife and myself both had the "falls off the bone" Shpondra. Cooked for 24 hours it lived up to its name. Price wise it is quite expensive but we will definitely dine there again

    All I can say is Wow!! To start off, we sat at the bar and had wonderful cocktails with a great inventive bartender or shall I say mixologist! Just watching him mix the drinks was so much fun! The wine list is great and the sommelier was fantastic and really suggested great wines for us! The food was excellent, they do not give you a steak knife and you do not need one, you can cut your steak with a butter knife! It was delicious! This was our first time there but I promise it will not be our last!! Looking forward to going back!!!

    Dined on 8/21/2014
    This place has a great vibe. Might be my favorite restaurant in NOLA. Not your typical French Quarter restaurant - no Cajun food here! This is like being in NYC! The appetizers and salads are so unique! Ordered the 31 day dry aged strip and was a little disappointed. Tasted like perhaps it was prepared via sous vide and I did not care for the texture. My guest ordered the short rib and it was outstanding. Service was okay and the wine list is a little too narrow. We had a couple of misses as they were out of a bottle of wine that I wanted, entrees took a long time to hit the table as they were busy, had to get up to find steak knife since my strip was not tender - but did receive a comped glass of wine, dessert and two ports.

    Celebrated my birthday with steak dinner and had an overall exceptional dinner and experience. The steak (Porterhouse) was as good as advertised and all other compliments were right in line with expectations. Overall service was equal to all other top-of-the-line steakhouses with a New Orleans level of flair and culture. I am still now quite sure if the cost was equal to the value. I would certainly consider dining here again, but in New Orleans, it may be back in my long list of favorites.

    This is the best meal I've ever had in NOLA. Get the beet salad, the endive salad (it has 50 flavors) or the burger or a steak. The menu doesn't sound that creative, but when the food arrives - omg. Everything is perfect, and the little creative touches are great.

    I am normally a vegetarian but a few times a year I'll splurge on a nice fish, steak, or something similar. This time around I chose steak. I ordered the rib-eye medium and it came out perfectly juicy, pink, and slightly warm in center. The appetizers I ordered was Delicious as well. Between the food and ambiance, I was highly satisfied. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to someone.

    Celebrating two birthdays with much anticipation and ultimately disappointment--Service poor(except for the water server). Not enough room to give all my complaints. Had to catch our server who spent a lot of time "flitting" but not giving attention to our table. Daughter's Chateaubriand Tartare was excellent but server brought tuna tartare initially. Roasted beet--marvelous, as were the sweet breads, and endive salad was good. Short rib was very average as was the 8oz tenderloin (better steaks elsewhere). Wait for drinks was long (if you wanted a second--good luck chasing her down). Birthday celebrants not addressed AT ALL. Heard a man at an adjoining table singing Happy Birthday to himself so we weren't alone. Better places to go.

    After reading all the great reviews, I decided I needed to check it out. Glad I did, but I don't plan to go back. The tables were extremely close together---definitely too close for my taste. "Energetic" is a nice way of saying it was so loud that my friend and I had considerable difficulty having a conversation. The service was quite good---our server even acknowledged her own difficulty with the noise level which she says the restaurant is trying to address. So what about the food??? I chose the tomato celebration and the classified cut based on reviews. They were both OK but, honestly, I was underwhelmed. My friend had the filet which was definitely better than what I had. The wine list is extensive...and expensive.

    We had a very good experience. The service was excellent. I actually had a gourmet burger with truffle fries at a fine dining restaurant and it was amazing! The decor and vibe was wonderful but the two top tables along the side of the room were too close together( we could unavoidably hear the conversations on both sides of us) which made it less of the romantic atmosphere we were hoping for otherwise a great experience.

    This place has a great appearance and the staff are very helpful. We were seated in the courtyard because we arrived early. They would have seated us asap inside but we liked the idea of the courtyard. It was a nice spot although a bit warm on our night. The menu is fantastic if you want high quality steaks and such. The aged beef is on display when you enter and was the obvious choice. A la carte sides were also fantastic. The steak was the star though. Get the extra cold aged steaks and you will not be sorry! This will be a regular spot for me in NOLA. Great find that is picking up a reputation as the word spreads.

    Our night at Doris was amazing! From the front hostess to the wait staff everyone could not have been any nicer! My wife and I both got the Ribeye, mine 31 days dry aged, the wife went for the 21 day dry aged.. ..absolutely unbelievable!! Perfectly cooked to temp.. My wife has to have hers well done (I know) but her steak was perfect as well. We had the beet appetizer and we also had the tuna tartare, it was almost too beautifully presented to eat! We spent a few minutes talking to the manager, Stevenos, very personable and very friendly a great asset to the resturant! Our reason for going out to Doris was not your usual night out, we were celebrating life and the manager and staff could not have made it anymore special than it was!

    Meet over priced. Asked for medium rare Pittsburghed and told they would decide how my steak was prepared that would be best for me. Side portions small and lacked imagination. Appetizers not made to share. When you pay $50-$150 per steak you expect a 6 Star restaurant experience. This did not happen Would not recommend this restaurant.
