Great night. Service was great and food was delicious as usual.
It’s always a pleasure to dine at Docks. The food and drinks are delish. They just changed the menu on the Dover Sole so please ask before ordering. Evidently, you must specify the new or old way.
Birthday. Good for groups.
First restaurant ever (and I go to many for business lunches) to review the list of my allergies which is part of my Open Table profile. Amazing. Much appreciated!
Docks is one of the most consistent restaurants for fresh, good tasting food, fine drinks, superb wait staff and friendly casual dining. Our recent visit was to celebrate both our son's engagement and his fiancee's birthday, and the Brian, our waiter, joined in the celebratory fun and made our son and fiancee feel special. The maitre d' gave us an excellent table and arranged for a candle in a dessert, and Brian snapped photos for us. As usual, the drinks were perfect, the food delicious and a good time had by all.
First time to Docks and it will not be the last. The food was terrific, the seating is very comfortably spaced, the atmosphere is relaxed and the service was good. Great place to have a very nice seafood dinner with many choices. Very pleasurable experience. I highly recommend the place.
Everything was excellent. Great priced Bottlmless brunch menu.
We were in New York for my husbands birthday
Great happy hour specials!
Service was excellent. Wine was fine. Ambiance great. Food bland. Not seasoned. Tasteless. Had the trout. It was steamed. Had it before and was wonderful.
Waiter could have been more attentive; we had to flag him down for everything, he never checked on us. When I requested a coffee refill (this is with everyone at the table having brunch), he ignored the empty coffee cup of the person across from me, and was going to walk away from the 3rd coffee drinker without offering, but she stopped him. Then, even with 3 coffee drinkers getting refills, he didn’t think to offer more cream. We asked, and he brought a demitasse cup of it, even though we had a little milk pitcher on the table, now empty. We asked for more, because honestly, with 3 ppl having coffee, the amount given was ridiculous... and he brought us another demitasse cup of it.
Very crowded when we were there, for weekend (Sunday) brunch. The table behind ours had 6 ppl or more, who were accomodated by extending a table that otherwise was a 4 seater, like ours. But they didn’t move the tables to make room for the additional people, leaving us very crowded, with 1 person being bumped by people at that table, every time someone got up or moved around.
Music is much too loud, given the size of the crowd. We had to shout to be heard during much of the live music set.
Even with those frustrations, it was a lovely brunch, with good food, in a pretty place, and with great company. With the reservation, we were seated as soon as the group arrived. We were never rushed, and were there about 1.5 hrs, enjoying the bottomless brunch.
Please note: the restroom is up a flight of stairs, and many of the tables are also up some steps (3-4?). This is not a handicap-accessible space.
The portions are small and overpriced. The food was good but the value was only fair. The restaurant was very noisy. Service was good but rushed.
This is the ultimate place to hang out for a leisurely dinner. Great food, - especially the seafood towers, calamari & fab Brussels sprouts, not to mention the superb giant martinis. We are regulars and hop Docks stays forever.
A first experience at this restaurant
overall it was good I was a bit disappointed with the Maine lObsetr risotto a bit acidic to my taste but otherwise a great place for business lunch
Accommodated special request. Great setting for business discussion.
Was there for sunday brunch. Fruit salad, muffins, 1 entree of ur choice (egg benedict) that i feel just okay and bottomless mimosa for $26. Service is great, nice ambience with live jazz music performance. Got the booth facing the 3rd avenue which i love so much. I didnt realize that actually is super crowded at the back at the restaurant
The oysters were outstanding along with Dover sole!!
Skip the clams and eat lobster or shrimp!!
Service was great!
Food quality and quantity was excellent
This was my cousin’s 60th bday
Nice long table by the reception area
Everyone loved their seafood plate
From coat check to maitre d to waiter to busboy,
pleasant, professional, friendly and service oriented
Love their $1 per oyster st the bar offer. Wonder if they still have it. This was about four yrs ago I enjoyed them
I've been to Doc's before with good experience. This time was awful. Very bad service. Over priced for food selection. Had an Anniversary reservation a couple of days later in which I promptly cancelled. I'm done with Doc's - no more will i choose Doc's over great restaurant selections in NYC. The server could care less about our table, made herself unavailable to us. It took a long time for anyone to even acknowledge that we even sat down.
The raw bar was decent. All three entrees ordered were poorly executed (The Broiled lobster was over-cooked and "tough", the Linguine and clams were tasteless and the pasta was "chewy" and "doughy" and finally the Tuna was overcooked and under-seasoned. A Chef changed is required. To boot, the noise level was unbearable.
On a positive note, the wait staff was quite good.
Unfortunately, we will not be returning anytime soon.
Nice environment, delicious with reasonable price even though it is Valentine’s Day
Docks is always fun. The food and service are perfect.
A perfect lunch experience on a workday. Staff helpful and efficient. Food fresh. Portion sizes sufficient.
I would pass, many great restaurants in that same area. The food and service was ok.
We ordered two types of oysters baked for appetizers. They both tasted the same and where super small. Server was not attentive and listen skills where challenged.
One entree was good per my client, my wife's meal lobster risotto Harley had any lobster in it.
I ordered lobster roll, not great and for the price lobster was minimal also.
Great love this place.
Since I've criticized the food here before, it's only fair to note that a recent dinner was very good. Brussels sprouts app with parmesan was cooked and flavored perfectly, and crab cakes were excellent - including the Old Bay chips. Maybe the secret is to stick to the basics? Anyway, this place is definitely back on the list for dinner in the neighborhood.
One of several lunches at Dock's this week, maintains its high standards. Clam chowder a suitable start, crab cakes meaty as always. Tuna seared perfectly, followed by the rich and tasty chocolate desserts--pudding and flourless cake. Service prompt and attentive.
Thanks for the Congratulatory Key Lime Pie! (As this was our engagement celebration dinner!!) I tried to tweet it out; Too bad Docks does not cater to the tech savvy, social media pool. (may be on purpose, who knows) Thanks for everything!!!
Waiter was inattentive. Brought enter before appetizers. Forgot side dish. Waiter spent time talking to people at next table. Told us he was there all day and the acted like it.
My friend and I went for Restaurant week. Service was great. Food portions are just right: and the ambiance was perfect!
It is our go-to place for a feel good evening. Works like a charm
Received the wrong entree. For a work lunch in a hurry it’s hard to wait for the correct one. So i ate what was given.
The food was terrible.
My daughter had the Salmon and I had the Redfish.
Both were not good
The food and the service are good.
Always pleases. Happy hour especially good but great on all counts
First time and last time I had a disappointing meal.
Are used to dine there for lunch with clients frequently and hair alone last evening while visiting from Chicago. Unfortunately they probably will and Trey up at four I finished my salad and brought it to me 10 minutes slated reheated and mushy 😞
This was my first visit and I truly enjoyed it. The oyster sampler was amazing, beautiful presentation of our plates and the wine selection is delicious!!!!
I was amazed at how good the lamb chops were, in a "seafood " restaurant.
they were perfectly flavored cooked to perfection.
The polenta with leeks was deliciously spiced---really overall, a very good meal
Great!! Good food
Restaurant was ok, however we were not informed on how the NY restaurant week offer worked, and we ended paying regular prices. For the price, I would have gone elsewhere.
