Always a delight to visit Dolce’s and revisit with server, Miles! He’s been there forever and is an asset to the restaurant! Can’t wait to return for a Happy Hour with my girlfriends!!!
Great service and food options. I highly recommend!
We love Dolce! The food, the vibe and Courtney. A winning combination!!
The food was fantastic, filled with flavor and cooked the way I ordered it. I had the ribeye, and my husband had the cioppino. We finished our meal with chocolate mousse and bred pudding. Our waiter was fantastic. Met our every needs. Everyone was friendly and although it was Valentines evening, everything seemed to run smooth and organized. I will be happy to go back and try more things.
We had a lovely Valentine’s Day dinner with our kids and our server was really amazing
Valentine’s Day so the restaurant was packed. That did not slow down the servers nor the kitchen. Everything was timely, delicious and definitely worthwhile. And I was presented with a long stemmed red rose.
I liked the food a lot, especially the mussels and bread pudding. But the pacing of the meal was a little slow, though the service in general was very good.
Gwen did a great job! Thank you.
It was an older crowd. It was super busy for a Friday night. Service was fairly slow.
The food is delicious, and the Monday night Happy Hour menu lasts until midnight. The lamb, cheese plate, olive tapenade with burrata were wonderful! Also an amazing wine list.
Loved the service & the entertainment!
The New Zealand lamb chops, though small “pops,” were delicious. The lasagna,also, was very good.
The tapenade was mediocre.
Although the agave mix was fresh, the flavor of the margarita could have been sharper.
Best New Years Eve Celebration ever! Loved it all, food decor & staff! Amazing night xo
NYE was great and Jeff did an outstanding job as always! Thank you!
Dolce for Christmas Eve was cozy and pleasant. Service was great, food was delicious, and ambiance was animated but at the same time relaxing. . .always a good spot for regular dining and for special occasions!
Intimate atmosphere. Great service. Good food and beautiful all around experience
Never disappoints! Best food and service in town! Love, Love this restaurant and staff:)
Loved this restaurant! Its a great dining experience and a feel good spot close to home. Can't wait to come back!
We had a wonderful date night at dolce. We started with the delicious warm pita bread and hummus as well as the olive tapenade and bread both paired so nicely with the wine we selected. We had the fish special which was trout and the lasagna. The lasagna is my absolute favorite, often stop by and pick it up for takeout, it’s that great!! Overall amazing dining experience server was very attentive but not Intrusive! Love this restaurant, It’s one of those places that never disappoints if it’s lunch happy hour or dinner, they always hit it out of the park!!
My friend and I like to meet for lunch at places in Rancho Santa Fe because it is half-way between our homes. So far, Dolce is my favorite restaurant there. We arrived at 11:30 and pretty much had the place to ourselves. The Catch of the Day was Halibut, so we both ordered that. It was prepared on a bed of quinoa, spinach, and mushrooms and was very delicious. I did have to ask for bread since our server did not offer it to us, but once it came, we were quite happy. The menu is not extensive, but the dishes are presented very beautifully. We will definitely be going there again.
Enjoyed this neighborhood spot a lot. The menu is varied and the food tasty. It is a welcoming environment and a definite do again.
We have been here many times before and had great food and service. Unfortunately last night the waitress had too many tables to provide attentive service and the food was not of great quality. Had the waitress had time to ask about our meal, I would have sent the steak back.
Saturday night - it was super loud when we walked in with live music and people having to shout over the music. Luckily we were seated outside which was much quieter.
The service was totally fine. None of our experiences was our servers fault. It would have been nice if she’d remembered to tell us what was already sold out - since of course one of us ordered it - and then had to get the menu back and scramble.
However - mostly she was great.
The food was overcooked. So incredibly over cooked and the other dish overcooked and burned and dry that I was surprised she brought the plates out to us.
We definitely won’t go back and will warn others.
Always friendly, great service and delicious food!
I love our neighborhood spot! The risotto is one of our favs as well as the arugula salad! I love the catch of the day as well! Fresh, nutritious food! Nice portions that minimize food waste too!
We came to see a long time friend who was providing entertainment for the evening. Fun vibe and atmosphere.
Well we are always in search of a great restaurant. The servers are awesome and the food was 5 stars. The best part is the warm fun feeling you get when you are at a real fun party. Everyone is very happy there and it is a COMFORTABLE restaurant. We will be regulars!
Nice ambience, great gluten free flatbreads. The salmon with quinoa and broccoli was to die for! Above all, loved hearing some of San Diego’s finest jazz musicians—this sets Dolce apart! We’ll be back, with more friends!
We hadn’t been to Dolce in a while and went last night. It was great!! New and delicious menu items. We are so excited to make Dolce a frequent dining experience!
Dolce is intimate and inviting--a continual pleasure! Our waiter was fantastic--solicitous, helpful, funny. The food was fresh and tasty and the wine list great. We enjoyed our dinner immensely as always!
I researched a restaurant in the RSF area and Dolce did not disappoint me. The ambiance was great. I sat outside, which I prefer to do, and the music sounds and aroma from the kitchen set the stage for the excellent food. I will return.
Excellent service, very good listener and attention to detail. Food was very tasty. CIoppino was cooked perfectly with good portions of seafood. The roasted vegetarian plate was a bit dry, yet had good flavors.
I went to Dolce to hear a musician friend who was playing there. It was my first time there. I had a gorgonzola salad and a fettuccine dish with shrimp. Both were excellent. The pasta was fresh. The waiter was nice and helpful. The food wine are not overpriced. People at the bar were having fun. The layout was conducive to listening to a jazz trio while enjoying the food. I'll be back.
Thank you and happy you had a lovely evening. Enjoy live music every Saturday 6:30-9 . Flex Band will be back Sept 21st . Cheers
Great food and service, and really enjoyed the Flex band playing. Fun evening!
Little loud with kids next to us. Wasn’t romantic at all with the noise and kids.
Delicious food! We ordered the sausage salumi flatbread appetizer; for dinner the lasagna and penne with sausage/peppers.
The service was great, friendly, tentative, not rushed.
Cocktails were very tasty - especially the “Kentini”. And, the wine was reasonably priced and good selection.
Dolce has been one of my favorites for years. I could count on good food, a varied wine list in a pleasant surrounding. This past Saturday night, I was disappointed. The food was fair, at best, and totally unworthy of a decent eatery. The wine list is shallow, with lots of very young wine, and lacked geographic diversity.
An overall disappointing experience.
I hope Dolce improves, or its off my rotation.
Best in the West
Our service was the best part of our experience!! Described as a "neighborhood " restaurant but it was pretty much in a strip mall! Nothing we were expecting so that was disappointing. Table we were at was two tables put together and not very well!!
All good. So glad to have Dolce close to home.
We will return often and bring friends.
