The halibut and scallop entrees
The halibut and scallop entrees were perfect. The waygu ragu was okay. We enjoyed the beets appetizer and thought the mussels appetizer was superb. The menu is limited, 4 fish, 2 steak, one pork and one chicken, plus a few more, but the preparationa were effective. I overheard many guests commenting they were return diners. U will e too.

Keep this gem on your A-List of must go to restaurants! Wouldn't think of it as a steak favorite, but the filet and strip were the best we've had around town in some time. Service was super. We'll be back!

Great neighborhood place
The food and service were really great - we enjoyed the restaurant immensely as usual. Always a great experience.

My husband and I ate at Dolce on Wednesday night. The food was wonderful and the service was outstanding. We ordered the charcuterie appetizer, cocktails and I had the halibut, my husband had the scallops. Presentation was outstanding. My halibut was delicious but the scallops were the best we've ever had. Dessert we had the espresso caramel cheesecake which was also delicious. We would happily dine here again. Thanks for a great meal.

We had a wonderful meal and enjoyed jazz by Chris Sau. The food was great, service wonderful, over all we would recommend to our friends and we will make it to Dolce again!

Delicious with a few glitches
We had eaten here once before and were so impressed, we decided to take our out of town guests. Our meal was probably the best we've ever had in Omaha. We're all farmers and know our meat! The beef farmer from Columbus raved about the tender, tasty filet. The other 3 of us had the pork special--I can say it was incredible! Absolutely delicious.
The glitches: The 2 of chandeliers began to flicker and the restaurant turned them off. Since it was dark, we requested to move to a table with some lighting. Initially, we were told we could move to an adjacent table which was also in the dark. We did finally get moved to a better location. When I made our reservation, I noted we were celebrating a birthday. There was no acknowledgement.

One of the best!
We really think that Dolce is one of the very BEST restaurants in Omaha. The food is amazing - great combinations of flavors, colors, textures. Sooo goood!!
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a favorite!
Delicious locally-inspired food and attentive, friendly service! Not to mention a killer Manhattan! :)

The risotto du jour was to die for. Everything was excellent as it always is as was our waitstaff.
It's wonderful to know that you'll be well cared for.
The table settings are also classy and so are the owners. If you're a foodie, this is the place to go.

Tuesday Night Delight
My wife and I had a delightful meal late on a week night. The dining and drink selections were very good and our dinner was very good. The scallops were the highlight, as was the bread pudding for dessert.

Check it out
I am a grown up farm boy from the 40's and 50's. My mother was an excellent cook. Based on my past I think is why I call the servings here ample or lean. However the flavor and quality of food were excellent. The service by all attending me and my friend was superb. Ambience was upscale and nice but a bit crowded for me and my friend. We are big boys. Overall 4 out of 5 stars, will recommend to friends to eat here.
7/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food here was wonderful. Everything fresh and pasta homemade Bruschetta was the best I have ever had y husband had the pasta special and it was just the right amount of pasta, sauce was an enhancement and did not overwhelm the dish. I had filet that was perfect. The dessert of chocolate brownie with ice cream was heaven. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the filet and the paleo option - lots of green beans and broccolini. Delicious! Filet was like butter.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stiil our favorite
Pork chop special was excellent. Beautiful presentation!

Unique, Intimate Dining Experience
The moment we arrived, we received excellent service. The seasonal menu offered both fish and steaks. Nice variety on the wine list. The special risotto appetizer with mushrooms and truffles was decadent! The scallops were delicious. One caution – the trout had several small bones. The dessert selections were many and marvelous. A very special dining experience.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, friendly service...
but bring your wallet. If I wasn't eating on the company's dime, I probably wouldn't have tried it because I'm too frugal. I found Dolce through the Internet and read a few reviews, so I was aware of the expense before I made a reservation. The service I received was impeccable the scallops were amazing, and the presentation was beautiful. I will definitely plan on a repeat visit the next time I'm in the area, but it's a place for special occasions, not for weekly visits...at least, for me. If $'s aren't an issue for you, then visit often and enjoy!

New chef and sous chef
The new executive staff are adding some new dishes. The pork chop is excellent! It is sliced and served with cauliflower purée for one of the veggies! My husband does not particularly like cauliflower, But he loved this dish!
The trout continues to be the freshest and best in town. I have had it at other restaurants, but this is the best! I love that it is served with salad and is so healthy.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had been to Dolce before and absolutely loved it! We invited another couple and they loved it as well. Two of us had the white fish, another the salmon, and the chicken. Although the wine list is not extensive they did have a good variety of reasonably priced wines. We loved the cupcakes and brownie sundae! I thought the prices matched what we ate/drank quite well. The owners mom, Iris, was going from table to table to introduce herself and asked if there was anything we needed. That gave it a nice touch with our meal! Highly recommend and we will definitely be going back again!

My husband and I have dined at Dolce several times before, and we tend to save this restaurant for special occasions. Saturday we were celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary. We were seated immediately upon arrival, and our waitress came to our table promptly. We ordered the salmon reuben appetizer. It was different and delicious. For our entrees, my husband had the pasta dish. He absolutely loved it--said he could have eaten a bucketful of it! My choice was the pork chop. The meat was tender and so flavorful! For dessert, I ordered the brownie a la mode. I have had it before, and it was worth every calorie! As always, Gina came to our table and checked on everything. Another top-notch dining experience at Dolce!

Great local find!
So glad we stopped here! It's very small, but elegant and the food was incredibly fresh and well prepared. My husband thought the pork was the best pork chop he'd ever eaten and I loved the beet salad and steelhead trout. Many things are locally sourced and you can definitely tell in the attention to detail and freshness of the options. The owner stopped by to chat with us about their approach to the restaurant and was very pleasant. We'll definitely be coming back!

First time there
Food was great, service excellent very special menu.

Wonderful Dining Experience
Three of us enjoyed an appetizer and three different entrees. All of the food was excellent. Out server was attentive but not overly bothersome. Really enjoyed the evening there.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was in from out of town and had an OUTSTANDING meal!!!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the very best in the Midwest! The food is outstanding with beautiful presentation. Gina's cupcakes and other desserts are scrumptious! I would highly recommend Dolce!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
A grand dining experience; wonderful service; outstanding cuisine - highly recommended!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was good. A little pricey. 4 oz. Of halibut for $35. Appetizer of ravioli for $19.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
another great meal
We eat with friends at Dolce at least 2x/month. This place is still , in our opinion, putting out the best food in Omaha.
This is New York level, sophisticated cuisine. All this in an unpretentious, inviting, approachable atmosphere, with a friendly, knowledgeable wait staff.
The beef cheeks this week were outstanding. And Chef Jason's new house-made Burrata appetizer is a show stopper.
What are you waiting for if you haven't tried this locally sourced eatery yet???
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the bruschetta for our appetizer. It was delicious! It was served promptly and given the right amount of time to enjoy it before the entrees arrived. I really hate getting the entree before the appetizer is finished! I had the halibut which seemed small at first but was the appropriate portion size. The truffle oil was subtle and the gnocchi was excellent. The halibut itself was cooked perfectly. We had a bottle of Sauvignon blanc which paired nicely with the halibut. For dessert I had the banana pudding. It was what I expected not "wow this is awesome" like the appetizer and entree, but good nonetheless. Presentation wise the dishes were beautiful. They really took their time to make a wonderful experience.

1st time there and wonderful! Great menu, service amazing, and really great restaurant!

Dolce: Consistently Outstanding!
Best restaurant in Omaha for consistently providing OUTSTANDING food. Can't say enough good about it!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first time to this restaurant, and I had a good experience. I went with a friend for her birthday. It's a pricier side which I knew going into it so I would probably only go there for special occasions. Service was excellent.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
If I could describe Dolce
If I could describe Dolce in one word, it would be "consistent". We've been here several times and the food has always been wonderful. During our last visit, I had the filet mignon - it was cooked perfectly and practically melted in your mouth. When I asked to substitute a side, the server was very accommodating. The almond cupcakes are amazing (we always get them), but this time we decided to try the berry cobbler and it was worth it.
If I had to provide one very small criticism, it's that Dolce doesn't usually go above and beyond my (admittedly high) expectations. There aren't really any extras (like an amuse-bouche). However, unlike many other fine dining restaurants in Omaha, Dolce never seems to have an off day.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved this restaurant. It was my first time and the food was delicious. Already boasted about Dolce to my golf friends and several agreed with me. Loved the touch of giving a cupcake to the first time dinner guest. Classy.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
the owner, Gina, very personable. the service was very good, most importantly the food was flavorful and tasty. restaurant was very accommodating for my GF needs

We loved the personal attention
We loved the personal attention from the owner at each table. The food beautifully presented and was full of flavor. We also appreciate the fact they use local producers from the coffee to the chicken to the veggies.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My new favorite restaurant!
We tried this restaurant on a tip from a friend and we absolutely loved it! Steak was the best I have ever had and all food was superb from first course to the end. Service was excellent- I would definitely recommend going.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Guests were impressed
We treated good friends to a dinner at Dolce. The food & service were outstanding. Thank you, Skyler. Three of us had scallops and one had the cheeks. Both dishes were over the top with flavor. Squash soup and polenta were the choices for the first course. Both were dee-lish! Then to top off the night we all had dessert. Three ordered bread pudding. Best they had ever tasted and one ordered the dark mousse. Also, very good.
My compliments to the chef !! He clearly is very talented and I loved the presentation of the dishes.
Keep up the good work, Gina. You have a hit on your hands!! Congratulations on your success and your talented & friendly crew

We were visiting Omaha and found this restaurant online prior to our trip. We had a great time - our waiter was very personable and attentive. The owner also stopped by and introduced herself. The food was great and so were the desserts. Cupcakes were wonderful!

Excellent Food and Friendly Staff
We had an excellent meal. The beet salad and pasta special were delicious. My steak was prepared perfectly. The restaurant was very accommodating with food allergies. The desserts ordered (a cupcake and the bread pudding) we're outstanding. The staff and management were engaging and excellent with quality control. The drinks were very good also.

Halibut was exceptional. Lamb
Halibut was exceptional. Lamb was very flavorful but just a bit tough. Overall very good food. Service was very good.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my wife there as a surprise for her birthday. We don't eat out much, but when we do we like to eat food that makes us happy to be eating it and Dolce never disappoints. the food was excellent, and my wife had the duck special that was delicious with a perfect combination of flavors.
the only comment was that the server forgot that my wife cannot eat dairy, other than that it was a successful birthday surprise!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM

Better than NYC
Dolce surpasses every NYC restaurant we have frequented. Excellent cuisine ... No NYC attitude !
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome service is so hard to come by no matter how great the food is. The service at Dolce is EXCELLENT. She was accommodating (we asked to join another table at the last minute), friendly, FUNNY, and just took great care of us. The food was terrific. Great place to celebrate or have a conversation where you don't have to yell! We will be back. Loved it!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service. Really appreciated owner stopping by and chatting. Then later checking with us again about the evening.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great meal on a quiet night
Ate at Dolce on Halloween. Very quiet group dining that night; service was attentive but not stifling. Well presented and very well done fish entrees, Excellent desert
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the taste, presentation and smell of the plates. The scalops was delicious and was a perfect romantic date. The owner surprised us by going to all the tables and being around. Te only problem on my opinion was the service. Our weitres was very palate but don't make a good job offering bred as the other tables had some, and caming check us or fill the watter. Also she take a wile to came back after small request like olive oil (when she was back the food was almost over).
Could be a 4.5 to 5 stars... But today I will give a 4 stars overal because the service. The place is very nice ad deserve a 4 stars.
