Lovely decor and ambience - the light fixtures are especially striking. Beet salad was enhanced by orange and grapefruit segments which echoed the colors of the beets. Chocolate mousse cake was light and delectable. Great service, too!

Why do you want a review from me when you sent me an email AFTER I had dinner there that I would receive NO points for making my reservation thru you. Was it something I said??

Everything was excellent but customers stopping for pick up pulled up right next the the outdoor tables, did not turn the cars off, blared their radios, etc.

We had a great dining experience at Dolce the other night! Our server, Amy, was terrific as usual at sharing her professional opinion about the menu as well as being attentive and thoughtful to our needs. Our food was delicious and our wine choices were tasty. The outdoor seating was comfortable with overhead heaters and distanced tables. I would highly recommend dining at Dolce!

I miss the old Dolce! The ambience was so cozy and now its a lot less intimate. The staff seemed a little less attentive than they once were and the food was not as I remember it. I will be back because Im hoping it was just an off night since I haven't been there in a couple years.

Wasn’t told about the specials. Guess it was assumed I only wanted happy hour. It’s Valentine’s Day and only knew about the specials from another guest at the restaurant. Amy you need to step it up!

Went there for Christmas Eve. Sat outside with the heaters which was fine. Service was good, but the food was okay. Ordered the butcher's cut, which was a ribeye, and the quality of meat was not work the price paid.

We may go back post-Covid and see if it is any better.

The food was sooo good!! The salmon and the brick chicken were so tasty! The service was fantastic and seeing people all enjoying this place was a bit bitter sweet since as of today they have to shut down because of COVID.
