Went for happy hour and sat in the bar. Our server was excellent, even while tending a very busy bar. The little appetizers available at happy hour were uniformly tasty and only $5 each. We had a great time!
Very good and great service
Great venue for a very special occasion. Perfect considering the current restrictions!
Very nice. Food and service was excellent. Music was a tad too loud.
It was our anniversary and it was a wonderful choice. We enjoyed the food and the service and the view.
Food was awesome and the vibe was great. our waiter Ben was tremendous. He was quick and made the dinner even more enjoyable. Another great meal at LDV!
Great service and the food was very good. The menu has a large selection.
Have had several holiday dinners here and the food and service is always excellent!
First although there is a view of the ocean, the space was extremely dated.
My drink came and the fruit in the drink had dirt on it. When the food came it was mediocre at best. My scampi had no flavor and the stuffed salmon did not have lump crab meat only some crabmeat mixed with breadcrumbs.
Not a happy experience for the price.
Great place to relax and dine with friends. Food was delicious. Can’t wait to go back.
Food was delicious! Service was on point-especially our server, Mateo!
I have been going to La Dolce for the past 8 years. Great prices on their price fix dinners and the food and service are wonderful. Definitely worth going to plus you can't beat the view of the ocean.
great selection on the menu
aimed to please
Rude hostess and service us just terrible. Too bad as view is nice and food isn’t bad.
Everything was outstanding! Had an issue a few years back but must of been an off night. Food and service was great
Everything was awesome the food our waiter everything 5 stars
Everything was very good! Not a BYOB, be prepared to pay a lot for a bottle of wine. A wine we always buy in liquor store for $13 was being charged $46. Other than that, all was delicious!
Celebrating my birthday was made very special and food was superb!
Always a great experience
It was great food great service and will love to come back :)
Very authentic and delicious Italian food and our server was very accommodating. Will definitely return.
The food is very good. The service is always excellent
My date ordered the branzino which he said was the best he ever had. I ordered some kind of stuffed chicken but it was way overdone and hard to cut. Drinks and desert was good but the noise level was absolutely horrible. I think some people were having way too many drinks or something to be that loud. But I have to say our waiter was great!
The food and service was outstanding. Would definitely make another reservation.
Paul, our waiter, was very attentive. Great service. I wished I had ordered a different entree......chicken parm...nothing special. I especially enjoyed the finer points of the meal...service....relaxing atmosphere....the table setting...the bread service.....a variety of choices on the menu....cocktails were very good. My dining friend was more adventuresome in his choice of an entree and had a great meal. I will do so next time. We will be back ....probably we will skip dessert. The chef’s special was undersized and overpriced. All in all, you have a lovely restaurant, and we enjoyed the time spent there. Thank you.
Always a great atmosphere, service, and food! It’s a go to place for every day dinners or special occasions
Everything no matter what you choose is delicious. I must say though after not being there for a full year things have slipped a bit. Not in the food, but in the atmosphere. Loud Caribbean music, and loud talking, were not the atmosphere previously. Their typical fine dining was quiet with some nice background music.
Luckily, our needs were understood by one gentleman and we were seated in a quiet area elsewhere. So be very careful if what you want is a fine dining experience where you can hear each other speak.
We are assuming once things are back to normal, the more Loud and lively bar room area Will be separate from those who want a true dining experience.
But FYI as a client since they first opened up, we genuinely feel their food and drink is unsurpassed.
Fantastic restaurant on every level.
Atmosphere, service, flavor, presentation and price.
Thank you! We can’t wait to go back
Dinner was delicious!
FOOD WAS EXCELLENT.......DRINKS GOOD......NEEDED SWEATER.......SERVICE EXCELLENT......LITTLE PRICEY BUT DIDNT CARE BECAUSE WE ENJOYED THE FOOD
Food was delicious and service was excellent
Our waitress appeared annoyed at all times. Felt rushed. Food was average at best. A few years ago this restaurant was outstanding. So sad.
It took us almost an hour to get here but was worth the drive on a sunny day. We had a lovely view by the window. Nice and bright for lunch. Both of us had salads - Caesar with grilled chicken and La Dolce Vita with grilled shrimp. Both were very good. Only complaint was I found the lemon vinaigrette a bit too tart for my liking. Service was competent and attentive. We will visit again.
Good service. Excellent food. Pleasant surroundings. Going earlier than the typical dinner crunch time usually enhances the experience at any restaurant.
Perfect, as always. Great staff and very fast. Out in an hour. Amazing food and drinks.
Our server was professional and gracious. The cuisine was delicious. Thank you fir being open for lunch. Not many restaurants offer daytime dining.
Had a delicious lunch of garlic shrimp with spinach and cannelloni beans and a half priced Godiva chocolate martini while enjoying the ocean view. The bread is quite good too. My friend said her salmon was perfectly cooked.
The food and service are exceptional. This is the best Italian food for miles!
The waitress was not attentive (checking her phone instead of the tables); service needs improvement!
Excellent fare ambiance and service
