Delicious and (seemingly) authentic Croatian Mediterranean cuisine. We were seated in the basement wine cellar which started out very quiet and intimate and eventually became very lively. The grilled octopus was absolutely delicious and the root vegetables with the seafood entrée were also terrific.
The Croatian white wine was crisp and had a nice mineral tone. Very good with the seafood. Only quibble: there were several Croatian white wines on the menu none of which I knew, I asked the waiter and he recommended the most expensive bottle, $58
Everything was great
Especially the octopus s and the grilled fish
Great wine from Montenegro a
Exceeded my expectations. The server knew his wines, the ambience was nice, and the food was prepared perfectly. I had the seafood pasta, which was delicious and a very generous portion. It included half a lobster, about 6 clams, 8 mussels, and a few shrimp. The sauce was very flavorful and was not over buttered. I’ll definitely be back.
The Raw Bar night met all our expectations. Everything was fresh. The selection was wonderful. We especially enjoyed the various oysters.
The food and waiter were very good, however, the hostess kept us waiting for 7 minutes at the door while fielding a phone call until a waiter took pity on us and seated us. Then the hostess comes by, not to apologize, but to ask us if we had reservations. It was 5pm and we were the only patrons in the restaurant. How rude and pompous of the hostess.
Really enjoyed it.
The service was amazing and the food was incredibly delicious!
Loved the grilled seafood! So fresh!
Gracious, friendly service complements the delicious food and the beautiful presentation, prices are fair and reasonable relative to the superb quality, and although we've never been to Croatia, this restaurant strikes us as a wonderful ambassador for "the old country."
It was great.
Everything was wonderful and scepter for the valet parking which was inefficient to say the least!
We had to wait almost an hour for our reservation. The wine list is not very good with old white wines and red wines uninteresting. Second time we’ve been there but won’t be returning.
Excellent restaurant. Best fish ever (Branzino). Service very good.
We've been to Dubrovnik (the restaurant) five or six times since they opened. We particularly enjoy summertime when we can eat outside, although we've eaten downstairs in their "wine cellar" twice and indoors upstairs another time .... all nice as well.
The noise level is definitely energetic indoors, and it's almost always crowded, which reinforces the quality and value of this restaurant. Their fish are very good, and we've enjoyed many distinctly Croatian meals. Their Croatian wines are excellent and affordable, which is a big plus. This past weekend, we also tried their not so Croatian Tiramisu, which was outstanding.
We had one downer of an experience this trip. They seem to have under-estimated demand for their dinner specials. We arrived at about 6:50pm ... certainly early for a Saturday evening. Two of the specials were already sold out ... and they were both, unfortunately, what one of our party wanted. The third choice was still very good, although less distinctive. No restaurant should sell out of their Saturday night specials so early in the evening ... at least not in my book.
We dine at Dubrovnik frequently. We'll continue to go back and recommend this place to anyone interested in trying something a little different than you might otherwise get here in Westchester.
Outstanding meal with great service from our waiter, Bobby & his team! The Grilled Octopus appetizer is excellent but the Cuttlefish Risotto appetizer is truly legendary. The Chicken Soup with Dumplings is great, a mix of wonderfully flavored soup with (really) diced matzoh balls. Try the Croatian wines - surprisingly good! The veal ragu & the Mama Theresa Zuppa del Mare are unbelievable. The Flan for dessert is a great finish if you have room; the sorbets are the best I’ve ever had & the Croatian crepes with various alternate fillings are sensational. Dubrovnik Restaurant on Main Street in New Rochelle, NY is a true gem - & worth any trip!!! Our 3rd visit already and only the beginning!
We had 4 people, plus a 22 month old. The staff were very helpful and patient. Even though Dubrovnik is most appropriate for adults, we were pleased when another family came in with a child close in age to ours. The children weren’t consistently noisy, but could be heard from time to time. We were reassured by our very attentive server, who kept telling us that he had kids and grandkids, no problem. Everyone enjoyed the food and drinks, but the outstanding service is what we will remember.
Food was delicious. Service was great very attentive without being over bearing
The food was very good. Bringing a tray of today's catch to the table for inspection is a nice touch. The service was painfully slow. While service was polite, it could be more attentive (difficult getting someones attention for more water or more bread).
Great food ambience. So nice to see traditional service is still offered, along with fresh and delicious food.
Everything was great,starting from welcoming and friendly staff to the delicious food they have.Authentic Croatian style.Love it.
I've eaten here twice and the food and service were very good on both occasions. The Branzino is delicious and there is enough variety on the menu to suit most tastes. The dessert menu is a nice finish. The staff are very friendly. We've eaten in the main room and downstairs. The downstairs vibe is definitely cozier and we will request downstairs next time since we will definitely go back.
Dubrovnik always has a lovely ambiance and great service with amazing food and a great wine selection. We have started a Christmas Eve dinner tradition at Dubrovnik and look forward to many more in the coming years.
Lovely restaurant. Good service. Good food. We're new to the neighborhood and wanted to try someplace different - and we found a great spot. Seems family friendly but is definitely good for dates and "adult" dinners.
The restaurant is very nicely decorated. It feels warm and elegant. The bread is fresh, the olive oil is extra virgin and tasty with herb, and the bread spread is very good. The mussels are outstanding, among the best that we had in different restaurants. The fish is nicely cooked - soft and tender on the inside, but with a somewhat crispy skin. Excellent food and service.
Dubrovnik is a warm and cozy, invitingly appointed restaurant with really good food and excellent service. I went there recently with friends to take advantage of their Mon-Wed night 3-course prix fixe Lobster dinner and was very pleased. The lobster soup was a nice starter and different from the usual bisque. The lobster itself was broiled just right. The apricot crepes for dessert added a nice finish.
Food and service overall good to very good. Extremely noisy in the restaurant this particular evening. We requested Branzino and Orata to be filleted by the server, but the server did not do a very good job. Server also did not have a very good working knowledge of the wine offerings. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable experience overall.
Our meals were excellent! Best swordfish!
Another great Raw Bar event! I don’t know how Chef Jerry does it but each one meets or exceeds the high bars set by his previous events. A marvelous variety of carpaccios including swordfish, scallops, fluke, and monkfish were complemented by salmon, tuna, lobster, and octopus salads. And more. All flawlessly executed.
We anxiously look forward to his next offering.
I love the food at Dubrovnik - its great food done really well. If you like Mediterranean cuisine, with an emphasis on seafood, this is the place for you. They also have the chicken and steak, but what I don't find in other places is fish that flakes off the fork and with a crispy skin to die for!
European atmosphere with excellent food and professional service. On warm weather, the restaurant has a very pleasant balcony to have a meal outdoors.
Excellent food. Best fish on this side of the Atlantic. The orada and the octopus are both excellent.
Always a great selection of fresh fish. Large portions and not cheap, but nice and worth it for a special occasion or date night. Service is top notch once you sit down. Hit or miss with crowd size (either empty or full) so best to always make an advance reservation. Has valet parking.
Nice ambiance. Would go there again.
We enjoyed a tasty seafood dinner experience. Our app was a grilled shrimp/calamari dish cooked to perfection. Our main courses were pasta with mussels/clams/shrimp in a red-broth sauce. It was light, tasty and plentiful; and, a traditional Croatian stuffed cabbage entre prepared and presented extremely perfecto. Our compliments to the waitstaff and chef for an enjoyable dinner experience.
Desserts were great- even my pastry chef sister liked them. the octopus was outstanding. The lamb under the bell was disappointing. not a lot of real meat but a lot of potatoes and gross organ meats like maybe a liver? a heart? lungs? don't really know.
5th time I've been here in last 2 years and it's consistently a great experience, much worth the 30 min drive. We had mussels, garden salad, bronzino, seafood pasta, all delicious. Croatian red and white were equally enjoyable. Staff very friendly, quick, attentive, particularly the host Nada, who stopped by twice to check on us.
What a pleasure. Valet parking. Waiter was well versed and funny. Food was delicious. Looking forward to returning in the near future.
If you enjoy seafood, esp. fresh calamari, octopus and simple grilled fresh fish, this is the place to be in Westchester. Their grilled calamari and grilled octopus are the best I’ve had in the US, comparable to the succulent ones I had in Spain. They have a wide selection of fresh whole fish best served by simple grilling. My husband and I shared a 2.5 lb snapper which they filet at our table side. Though the fish was slightly over cooked, it was very tasty with a nice flavor.
Very high quality food and well worth it. Excellent fresh fish brought to your table for you to select and then grilled over coals - delish. Also tried a risotto which was very very good. Prices fair for the quality
WASN'T SURE WHAT TO EXPECT SINCE I'VE NEVER HAD CROATIAN FOOD BUT WAS VERY PLEASANTLY SURPRISED. EVERY DISH I HAD WAS DELICIOUS. I WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK AND RECOMMEND TO FRIENDS.
