Dodici Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Went to this restaurant with friends during Restaurant Week. We had a 7:15 reservation. Once seated I asked to see the Restaurant Week menu. I was advised that dinner was regular price after 7. I checked the restaurant website and the Dodici Restaurant Week menu and did not see anything about a cutoff time. I asked our waiter to extend a 15 minute courtesy and he said he could not. I asked to see the manager to make my request directly to her. When she arrived I explained that we had never been to the restaurant and wanted to try it during Restaurant Week. I asked her to extend a 15 minute courtesy and she also stated that she could not. She then advised me that this cutoff time is part of the Restaurant “rules”. I went back to the Restaurant Week website and read the fine print. The only thing I found was a requirement that restaurants offer the price fix meals until AT LEAST 7pm on Saturday evenings. Lying to me- really? In the end we stayed. The food was good but this whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth. I will not be back, nor will I recommend this restaurant. There’s so many other great restaurants in the area.
We were escorted to the back room. Very cozy. I had informed Dodici that we were celebrating our friend's 60th birthday and would they be kind enough to place a candle in whatever he ordered. They did that and Alfonso brought practically the entire staff to sing Happy Birthday to him. Alfonso was the best. . excellent, over the top service, delicious food. . a perfect evening. Thank you Dodici
Been here many times. Food always great/excellent. Bar cocktail not food. Vodka and soda was flat. The Manhattan was not crafted correctly and was missing bitters. Otherwise service including the bar was excellent. Food excellent. A little noisey but a convivial atmosphere. Great restaurant.
I used to come here always, but tonite I changed my mind I will never come back here ever again, I left 4 tickets of Yankee game on the table when I came back I asked the waiter, busboy , and Lori the manager but nobody saw or Knew anything I know 100 % I left it there ...very disappointed with this restaurant and the staff....I made a police report in order for us to get new tickets...I am hoping the owner check his camera in restaurant to see who took the tickets bc tonite was only few customers and like 4 waiters this happened at dinner time around 7:45pm on 9/28/17
Someone stole Yankee game tickets from my table!!!
The food was good and the waiter was friendly but there was a definite push to up-sell - which i guess could be expected. The problem was towards the end of the meal. My date and I were talking and enjoying ourselves when suddenly it became obvious that they wanted us out. It was late but certainly there were other people in the restaurant and the wait staff made it clear by loudly replacing the the silverware on tables near us. The worst part was (for 2 people with meals costing about $25/ each 2 glasses of wine (one each) and one Cappuccino and one Double Espresso the bill came out to $102 before tax - that is not the worst part. As we were talking a waiter came and never asked if we were done, grabbed the coffee cups from us - very rude. I was sorry that i had added $25 to the bill as a tip.
Bring ear plugs! What a shame. This is really a good restaurant. The food is well-prepared. Sadly, it is beyond noisy. The staff must be going deaf. We might try going really early in the evening, say 5 PM. We had dinner at 7 PM and the noise level was impossibly loud. There were children in the restaurant and I shudder to think what happened to their hearing after 90 minutes there.
Unfortunately, this was not a good experience. We arrived before our friends and were quickly seated after they checked our reservation. The waiter was nice, gave a menu and offered to take a drink order. Soon thereafter, our friends arrived . The maitre'd scrambled over to the table rudely saying "do you have a reservation?" She said, yes I'm with them and the maitre'd looked at us asking if we had a reservation! (Meanwhile we already had drinks and a menu) and I said yes, he asked the. Name and literally ran back to the desk to check (was he going to throw us out?)
The waiter returned, took our order, etc. Once the food arrived, no one came to the table to see if everything was fine. The cannelloni was good;, the ravioli Nona had 4 small ravioli (FOUR), the bronzino special had bones in it ( despite them asking if she wanted it filleted) and the pasta Mediterraneano had plenty of mussels and clams and was a good portion size. The cappuccino was good. Our bill seemed quite expensive for an OK meal, but the rude maitre'd and lackluster service will keep me from returning!
Most of us enjoyed our meals, but the price of the food and drinks was much too high to go back unless it was a special occasion, and I would prefer to pay that much money elsewhere. The service was excellent including singing to the birthday guest at our request.
Revisited Dodici for Mothers Day. Party of 6 seated at the front which we liked as it's brighter than back of restaurant. Service was ok. Wine selection good. Fresh mozzarella with tomatoes & peppers very tasty. Cheese & meat platter ok. Entrees & desserts not as good as remembered from past visits. Maybe spoiled by 5 star & farm to table NYC restaurants frequented over past year. Overall, nice experience.
We went to Dodici on Mother's Day with my Mother for a 2pm early dinner. It was VERY busy, but the Wait Staff was phenomenal. Courteous, knowledgeable, prompt, attentive and didn't rush us. The place is beautiful (a little dark, even in the middle of the day) and the ambience was nice. The food was very good, but not traditional Italian, which was a nice change. Great for me and my Brother, a little difficult for my older Mother to find a traditional Italian dish. The pasta was clearly homemade, but a little thick and heavy for her taste. I had the roasted chicken and filet mignon (similar to Chicken Scarpariello but with Filet Mignon added) which was fabulous and plentiful. The best value on the menu. I would definitely go back for special occasions, maybe not on a regular basis, as it was a bit pricey and everything including salad is a-la-carte.
This is one of our favorite places to eat. We go for special occasions or just random days. Food is always good. Reservations are needed for holidays & also a good idea for peak dinner time on weekends or you will have to wait for a table. There are some seats at the bar & knowledgeable bartenders to make the wait time fly by. Staff are friendly & go above & beyond to keep my daughter happy.
