Food was delicious. Lobster ravioli, the meatballs, busselsprouts. Exceptional. But, I forgot who was our main server. There was 5 of them serving. No personal touch, otherwise everything else was very good.

good location in South Beach. food was very good. service was not so good. Instead of having one server the entire meal, it was more a rotating team approach. When that happens, there is lag time between one server and the next and on more than one occasion, we were stuck waiting for someone when we needed something.

Was too hot to sit outside, so opted to sit in the dinning room and what a wonderful experience. It was very intimate, beautifully decorated, service was superb and the food delicious. Been back a few times but that was my first time inside and will definitely be returning.

We are in South Beach for vacation. We love the restaurants here. We passed by Dolce the night before and loved the look of the outdoor seating so we made a reservation for the next night, March 1st. Wow...was it great! The food was as authentic as if you were sitting at an outdoor restaurant in Italy. And we’ve done that! The service was impeccable. Milana was our server and she was delightful. She was informative about the menu, and extremely personable. We felt comfortable just talking with her about many things. Before our entrees came, one of the managers of the restaurant came to our table with a plate of Lobster Ravioli compliments of the chef! A $28.00 entree. We were shocked as they had no reason to do this. It was amazing. Then our entrees came and we just chowed down. Staff kept coming to see how we were doing, and so did the managers. We so enjoyed how real they were and it just made our dining experience so memorable. We come to SOBE almost every year in late February to escape the Chicago winter for a week. We will definitely return to Dolce on our next visit and will tell our friends that have residences here or just come here to be sure and dine at Dolce!

Empfangsdame war sehr unfreundlich. Servicepersonal freundlich, man merkte aber, dass sie den Gast möglichst rasch abfertigen möchten. Legte uns ohne zu verlangen die Rechnung hin als wir keinen Dessert nahmen. Essen war sehr gut!

I was here around the holidays and it was much better. Very disappointing experience this time. Food was subpar and served cold. Wanted to get up and leave after appetizers but our waitress was so nice I felt too bad to do that. Not going back here. Wouldn’t recommend.

I advised ahead that I was gluten free. Waitress had no interest in accommodating . Said gluten free pasta coukdn’t be guaranteed gluten free. Nothing at all to ni bble on while table mates ate bread. Grnerally uncooperative and unconcerned about this ussue, as if it were a fad diet. I will never go back there.

Went for Brunch on Sunday. Not enough variety on the menu but everything everyone ordered was very good and so was the service. A little pricey for what you get

Best salad ever w hazelnut dressing. Crazy night, they tried seating our party of 4 at a booth meant for 2. After we relocated, our waitress was lovely, though after offering more bread, it never came. Menu a bit limited.

As someone with a handicap, the restaurant offered a ramp for the scooter, though difficult, it was accessible . Dinner was very good and service friendly and professional. There was no long wait periods .
