The restaurant came highly recommend, but I was very disappointed in the food. My pork tenderloin was over cooked and tough. I ordered the baby spinach and beet salad, but it had no flavor at all. The wait staff was excellent, but I will never eat there again.

We arrived quite a bit early for dinner before going to s show. We told Andrew, our waiter, that was had quite a bit of time. He told us to take our time and enjoy ourselves. We ordered drinks and an appetizer. The octopus was perfectly prepared and seasoned and the presentation appetizing. Andrew was present and made sure thing were right but never intrusive. We had the ravioli special and homemade pasta with a beef ragu. Both were very tasty and nicely presented. The moose desert was quite good but more on the cake like side.
All in all, a very enjoyable dinner. We will definitely be back.

The service was very good, the food was good, but not great. Went after a show. We had a reservation, sat right down no problem. The service and kitchen were very quick.

We’ve been here before but were disappointed this time. Took forever to get our cocktails as well as have someone take our order. The waiter was apologetic but .... Also, ordered wine for dinner but it never came. Not sure we will be back. Expect there are many other places that have better service.

For a full priced restaurant, there should not be an up charge for switching from potatoes to a vegetable
Specials should be presented with server detailing price; customer should not have to ask and appear annoyed at inquiries
Servers should look at customers, rather than away when taking dinner orders

This is a perfect pre-theater choice. The food is excellent. The place doesn't look or feel like a tourist trap, yet it's right in the heart of the theater district. This has become one of our go-to places when we're seeing a show.

Service was clumsy, food was mundane but location was great. Don’t think I’ll be back for 5-10 years but I’d send any tourist your way for pre-theatre meal.

Overall our meals were satisfying, but when comparing this meal to other NY eateries offering an Italian flare, it seemed to lack something that draws you back. I ordered the Grigliato Di Verdure Antipasti and the Grigliata Di Pesce as a main dish. The presentation for both dishes was exquisite. The service was good, but it did not meet standards for a higher end establishment. We also experienced someone off the street announcing to the entire restaurant a need for spare change to pay for a bus fare or something after he identified suffering from aspergers. Not sure if this is the norm, but I think he was whisked away. Great location to the many theatres.

Our dinner was good, but not great. The pork loin was a little dry, and my husband’s pasta was way too thick. This restaurant used to be much better, or maybe they were just having an off night on Saturday. I would recommend it nevertheless if you are looking for dinner before the theater. It couldn’t be more convenient. And the waiters will get you in and out in plenty of time for your play.

Always love this place but it was quite empty on a July Saturday afternoon. Quiet but same great food and service. The Caesar salad is amazing -- the salad is mounded up inside a parmesan cheese nest. My son liked the grilled octopus and I can never order anything but the spaghetti with white clam sauce.

I love coming here when I come in to NYC. Food is always consistently good and service always accommodating. The noise can't be helped as it is NY after all but a bit quieter upstairs. Fish and pasta always fresh and portion sizes perfect. A mainstay for me when coming to the theater or anytime.

Osteria al Doge is a great choice for pre- or post-theatre. The menu is great, the service is great, and the food is also great! Our party of 4 all ordered different things and were thoroughly delighted with our choices. We started with a Margherita pizza and mushroom crostini, and moved on to grilled salmon, Sea Bream, and the spinach and ricotta ravioli in butter and sage. Everything was absolutely delivious! And even though we were stuffed, we "forced" ourselves to order dessert. The tiramisu and hazelnut crunch and chocolate torte were a perfect ending to a perfect meal!
If all of that wasn't enough, our waiter Paul was so terrific he would be a great reason to return for another fabulous evening!
