I hadn’t visited Osteria al Doge in many years. While I remembered the dining experience to be positive my partner and I were blown away by the quality of the food and preparation and the reasonable prices. Everything from the pasta special to the seafood main to the wonderful dessert was mouthwatering and first class. Service was friendly and attentive. Highly recommended if you’re in the Theater District.

We dined here the last time in NYC and had a good meal then as well as on this trip. I went just with a pasta dish this time and was not disappointed. My wife had a pasta dish also and wanted to add chicken to it but no dice. A little disappointing. It across from the Belasco Theatre so before or after the show it is nice but you better have a reservation. They will ask if you are trying to make a show so that you get a meal that will get you there on time.

This restaurant is one of the coziest, prettiest places in the theater district and I am a native New Yorker. This past Friday was my 5th or 6th time dining there since I truly believe it is a gem to hit prior to a show. Food was great.

Really loved our experience here. Great ambience, food, service. Our server Cynthia was super... professional, friendly, helpful. My linguini with seafood was excellent... The lasagna outstanding. Most memorable dessert... the chocolate mouse. Recommended by Cynthia, and it's what I'll come back for next time. Great job, everyone.

We've been to this restaurant before, and was only too happy to come back to it prior to seeing a Broadway show. I have a family member headed to NYC for dinner and a show in honor of his wife's birthday, so of course I will advise him of this wonderful restaurant. This restaurant is a highly recommend!

I’ve been eating here for years — when in NYC and seeing a show. I’m sad to say that I think Osteria al Doge has lost its luster. It was fine but seems to be just coasting.

The ambiance is the biggest plus at this mid-town fixture. The grilled octopus was a little mushy, and the Caesar was pretty average, served in a Parmesan bowl. Service was excellent, as was the pappardelle.

Came here for the first time before seeing a show.
I was very surprised at how good it was. The food was excellent as were the drinks and decor.
Service was great and I had a top notch waiter. My only issue was the espresso. The flavor was good, but not the technique. No crema whatsoever. Wish I didn’t end my meal like that. Anyway, I will definitely be back and I highly recommend it.

Excellent service, however, if you have young children move on. We were greeted with less than a thrilled look when they saw our 6 and 4 year olds (who know how to act in restaurants). We were placed on the second floor in the corner. They don’t have a children’s menu, but accommodated requests for plain pizza and pasta with red sauce. It was kind of annoying that they kept filling the kids’ drinking glasses to the brim with water, when I asked them not to. You would think it would sink in after we had a spill! All in all we enjoyed our meal, I just wish they were a bit more family friendly.

The pasta was fine. The desserts were great. My biggest issues were the incredibly cramped seating and a VERY loud table immediately behind me. An approx 12 year old child was screaming at his mother because she took away his cell phone. Not the restaurant’s fault, but made our date night less enjoyable, nonetheless. Not sure I’d go back. Im sure there are better Italian restaurants around the city.

Emanuel was our server and he gave us excellent recommendations! From start to finish Osteria al Doge was fabulous! The Caesar Salad was fresh and served in a wonderful parmesan crisp bowl. The spinach ravioli was light and had flavors that popped. We will definitely be back!

My lasagna was divine and my friend's ravioli got rave review, too. We could hear our conversation easily and both commented that it's a great pre-theater spot!

We chose this restaurant before our Broadway show, Hamilton. It was Valentine’s Day. My husband got the Tagliatelle Bolognaise. The noodles were overcooked and sauce lacked flavor. I got a four cheese pasta. This was also totally average. The server was great and very attentive but food was dismal.

Osteria al Doge is a great place to go before or between parts of a show. We had a great dinner between the two parts of Harry Potter. The wait staff was fabulous, attentive, assuring that we weren't rushed but were on time for our show. Food was delicious!! Would definitely return when seeing another show.

We have been enjoying dinners here with out-of -town family members who request this restaurant when planning their visit to NYC.
Terrific food. Pleasant wait-staff.
We have been dining here for over 15 years.

We felt very rushed... we arrived at 7:40 for a 7:45 reservation and was done by 8:15. The food came so quick we were not even done enjoying the bread, oil and olives. We decided not to have dessert because our waitress told us we were her last table of the night. We definitely were rushed and did not enjoy the experience.
