Dolce Restaurant & Wine Bar

$30 and under
Contemporary American
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 doesnt 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.

Absolutely superb! They were willing to accommodate my onion allergy and prepare foods without any chives or scallions and the appetizer of scallops with a lemon cream sauce on a bed of risotto were outstanding.
I had some of the best halibut I've ever eaten for my main course and was delicious and my date had a shrimp and lobster diavolo that was very good.
Met the owner Rich, who seems to be a heck of a good guy and let us know that they have their own house brand coffee and much of their food comes from a farm in Dwight Illinois and is fresh, never frozen.
We will definitely return. 👏👍

During this Covid time, this was a most perfect experience. Tables were well spaced, and distance plus a light certain separated our table from the next. The server was conscience of our space, masked friendly and helpful when we asked questions and for suggestions. The choice of appetizers snd salads were unique and excellent. I always get the Panko Chicken as it is moist with the crunch, and served with roasted seasoned grn beans and
potatoe; and my friend raved about the Salmon with Bourban flavored sauce on a bed of savory mashed potatoes, vegetables and cooked crispy, to her perfection. We shared the homemade bread pudding w/ gelato, though the choice was so difficult
One of the best meals out I’ve had In a long time.

Smallish place provided great atmosphere. Being our first time there our table tried many of the menu items and were not disappointed. The lobster bisque was very good and the panko chicken were favorites of our table.

First visit and great experience. Owner and staff super friendly. Food...amazing! Had the pork chop and it was one of the best pork chops I've ever had. So tender and delicious with just the right amount of fat. Usually, pork chops these days are way too lean and dry. We'll definitely be back!

I would give this place 10 stars if I could! We showed up a little late to our reservation and it was no problem at all, they still accommodated us with a table upon arrival. The food is always perfect. They have an amazing wine and cocktail list. The wait staff was attentive and fast, she checked on us to make sure everything was perfect. I’m so glad I found this place, it never disappoints. Always my first choice when going out. We’ll be back very soon!

I have already complained to this establishment and written a couple of reviews on social media. I made a reservation through Open Table and they did not honor it. I made a rezzie for 2 at the bar on a Saturday night. .My choices were standard, bar and outside. Outside was out of the question for me it was in the high 50s. I got there at 712 for a 715 rezzie and was told off the bat that my bar seating had just been given to a walk in and all they had to offer was outdoor dining. Simply UNPROFESSIONAL! why make a reservation when they do not honor it! I have eaten here before a few years ago and remember it being good. It’s unfortunate that I had to find a last minute substitute at 730 on a Saturday night during these trying times for restaurants. Good riddance.

Was recommended by a friend who went to school with owner Greg’s wife. We sat outside on a lovely night. I ordered the Dover Sole - it was so good I will be back real soon for it again. Not too many restaurants offer Dover sole. Greg visited our table and said everything is fresh and local when possible. Praise to the chef. The sole was to die for. My adult grandson had the short rib dish and he loved it. Prices were moderate. My drink was delicious too. Everything from the food, ambiance, drinks, friendliness and location was right on. I would highly recommend Dolce in Westmont.

The food was incredible! We ate outside at 6:30 on a Saturday and it was surprisingly quiet. We didn't try the brick oven pizza, but they all looked and smelled fantastic. I love that they have local beer on tap and they source their food locally. I highly recommend the scallop appetizer, panko chicken & beet salad. My husband has been raving about the Chicken Parm for DAYS. Everything was fresh & delicious. Can't wait to go back.

Lovely evening outdoors at Dolce. Love the chorizo toast, with perfectly ripe avocado. We tried different entrees this visit; we were pleased with the pork chop and the spaghetti with shrimp. Outdoor seating is comfortable...not the most glamorous scenery, but nicely spaced, and comfortable. Thanks
