Contemporary American
Patio is based upon availability. Simple, Rustic, yet Refined, anything but typical. Walk into Dolce and you're welcomed by the aromas from the open kitchen. You might notice the music, its contemporary, it's rock & roll, R&B, or soul. You'll definitely notice the wines, displayed on the wall like works of art. There are no white table cloths, no dabbing the corners of your mouth, no pomp, but lots of circumstance. And perhaps the only reason you noticed the aforementioned is because you haven't tasted our food. That's when the music fades into the background.
Our house chefs are proud to be 'dismantling' the dining experience, replacing it with a sophisticated yet relaxed evening that doesn't break the bank. It's the best of both worlds, yet the food is our finest accomplishment to date. Inspired by whats great with a deep appreciation for each ingredient; grown local sustainable farms, or produced and harvested by like-minded individuals. Dolce is rarely the same place twice.

    Normally you find a place that does something well: cocktails, appetizers, entrees or desserts. At Dolce, they hit the quad-fecta. Everything on the menu was excellent. Service was great, striking the perfect balance between personal and professional—attentive without being overly so, friendly without being too familiar. We had a great date night anniversary out by ourselves. We had tried the old location a couple times as walk-ins and couldn’t get in. This was a Monday, booked ahead and it wasn’t too crowded. It is an easy 5-iron away from the old location. Can’t wait to try the patio at the new place! Coming back real soon.

    The pizza was cool, not hot , when it arrived,which impacted the enjoyment and flavor. The food was average, and the place was very noisy. After 7pm when music started it seemed like a young-person's nightclub in the bar area and outside. The restaurant floor didn't look clean when we arrived and the restaurant had just opened near 5pm on a Saturday night. Our wait-person (Rebecca) was excellent.

    Nice overall ambience but it was cold when I first arrived to an empty restaurant at 5:00. After some hot tea and a full dining room it was better. Tortilla chips and artichoke dip appetizer was very good. Dishes came out to our table of five in three waves and I didn't appreciate that. They were "waiting for the gluten free pasta." There was probably at least a five -minute lag between both deliveries. Caesar salad had very gritty small croutons, like gravel. Carbona dish with bacon didn't seem to go over too well with the added egg. Gnocchi and scallop dishes were good. Creme brûlée dessert was very creamy.

    We enjoyed a fun midweek dinner out at Dolce. We loved sitting at a high top table in the energetic bar area. Great service, and half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays! I’m not a fan of wedge salad, but our server offered to switch the iceberg lettuce out for spinach and that was delicious! We learned that Dolce recently had their pizza oven installed in their new location so we ordered 2 pizzas- a white cheddar and mushroom- so good-and a slightly spicy one, Amatriciana, which my husband really enjoyed.

    I hadn’t been to this new Dolce location and was anxious to try it. What a pleasant surprise that the food is still as good as at the old restaurant a couple of blocks away—but with a much larger and equally warm dining experience. We were greeted when we entered the restaurant and shown to our table for two. Our server, Heather, promptly took our orders for a cocktail and wine. (I must say that Dolce’s wine list by both glass and bottle is the best I’ve seen in the area for a long time. I highly recommend the French pinot noir Domaine Giraud 2020, which was a wonderfully light but complex pinot noir bursting with flavors!) We skipped the very tempting appetizers and small plates and went immediately to the entrees: My friend had scallops with garlic risotto with a light lemon cream sauce. The scallops were perfectly grilled and the flavors of garlic and lemon in the risotto and sauce were subtle and wonderful. I had the halibut Psari Plaki, which was slightly overcooked but all so good when accompanied with grape tomatoes in a tomato and herb sauce served with Greek style potatoes. The flavors were bursting! After dinner we went into the bar area to enjoy a great band playing in the covered and heated outdoor patio. If you haven’t seen the bar and patio area, give yourself a treat. This one is bright and light but warm and cozy—very much welcomed as the cooler temps have hit us—and a live band is always a treat! After we left, one of the owners, Steve, called me (having my name and number through my Open Table reservation) to let me know that one of the staff found my friend’s wallet. How wonderful is that—to know you can rely on the staff and owner of a local establishment to contact you and return a wallet intact with credit card and money?!!! I will definitely return to Dolce in Westmont to try some of their other enticing menu offerings, as well as the live entertainment and lively atmosphere! It truly was a delicious and fun evening!

    Like the new location, but the food was just okay. The ricotta appetizer was delightful, but the Greek style main course was disappointing. Too much acidity to the tomatoes. Cocktails were very good. Would come back for those!

    First visit since they moved and we were very disappointed. The food that used to be so good was mediocre. Menu left much to be desired unless you’re a big pasta and shellfish fan. The warm and welcome ambiance was gone. In fact, seated in the bar area we looked at walls with old outlets and tv connections on view. Went from 4-5 stars to 1.

    Food was very average. Really disappointed. The Magarita flat bread was a large cracker crust, over cooked with tasteless tomatoes and way too much mozzarella cheese, very unappetizing. The pastas weren't much better.

    Dolce’s new building is beautiful! It was so nice to be out on their patio on a pleasant fall evening. Service was efficient and pleasant. The flatbread was flavorful and crisp. I just wish it was a little larger. My husband enjoyed his scallops and risotto and felt that the chef had really upped his game! The risotto had a good texture and lots of flavor as well. I always appreciate when the owner stops by to see if you need anything.

    We're loving the new patio, no worries about rain. Food was great, as usual, with one exception....the panko chicken....the highly anticipated lemon caper sauce was too thick and lumpy, and overly salty. Potatoes weren't smashed, as described, but were roasted chunks....still tasty, but not smashed as expected. The first "off" menu item we've had in lots of visits.

    It was wonderful and very accommodating. Outside was full on a first come first serve basis but a last minute cancellation came in as we were being seated and we were asked if we’d like to take it. We did and made our experience that much nicer.. pretty loud outside compared to inside front of restaurant, but it was our choice. If you’d like quieter, request inside dining room. Very happy with food, service and ambiance.

    Excellent service. Very good food. Dined outside on their lovely patio; Unfortunately, our dining experience was marred by very loud and in our minds a hideous choice in “music” and didn’t order after dinner drinks and dessert as we couldn’t wait to get away from the noise. Sadly, I doubt we will return.

    We used to go to Dolce at it's previous location (south of tracks) and were looking forward to trying the new location. The service was great, drinks were great, and entrees were great. We can't say the same for the appetizers, though. The ricotta & honey bruschetta was very underwhelming and bland, as was the beet salad. Overall, we left happy and very full.
