Have never gone for Happy Hour before and the wine and options to share were very good! I regularly meet former work colleagues at Doolittle’s and it is always a nice evening with great food and service. The tables and booths feel distanced and safe.

The service was great, especially compared to overall experiences at restaurants these days. Always make sure to get the chicken wings if nothing else.

Doolittle's is often full, but this time there was a little slack, so we got right in, and crowd noise was low. Our server was ready right away, and we ordered our usual (rotisserie chicken sandwich and cajun chicken pasts, with wine and soup). The food was perfect and served quickly. A very enjoyable repast, even if prices have gone up( an unexpected surprise there). But the quality and ambience still make Doolittle's a favorite dinner destination.

The food was good and consistent as usual. I asked the hostess for a booth that was out of the way and we got seated in the bar in a direct line of traffic, which was disappointing as there were many other tables available the entire time we were there. The server/bartender was friendly but was slow on refilling our beverages. Otherwise the dining experience was good.

Even with a reservation we had to wait 15 min, the same amt of time who were walking through the door without a reservation. And we were a party of only 2.

I’ve been to Doolittles very often as it is in my neighborhood, the food and service was excellent. Yesterday’s server apparently did not like that we said we’d be ready to order in a few minutes. Although she attended to other tables in our area, she ignored us for 15 minutes. No check in to see if everything was ok.

I have eaten here twice before, but this time was not the best experience. My daughter had fettuccine Alfredo (w/chicken), the noodles were dry and contained very little Alfredo sauce. My salmon was also dry/overcooked. My husband and son had the chicken and said it was OK. We received our appetizers and drinks in a timely fashion, but it took well over an hour for our main meal to arrive. Plus, the wait staff did not stop by at all during that hour to see if we needed additional drinks. Unfortunately, this visit was not that great. However, our past visits were a pleasant experience. Perhaps this was an off night.

First timer - Food was excellent!
Serving size was well proportioned for the two meals we ordered (Scallops and 1/4 chicken) Don't necessarily expect to take home leftovers.

A bit disappointed with service - somewhat slow and server asked if we wanted some bread but never brought it

I have been to Doolittle’s several times and it’s always been enjoyable. Tonight’s dinner was not the case. Our server could use some skills in interpersonal communication (she lacks professionalism) and general skills in serving. They brought us the wrong beverage and instead of apologizing, she went into great detail how it was the table next to us beverage order and how they moved tables and it did not get updated in the computer. Really not necessary.

We were not done with our appetizer and she is asking if she could take the plate. When I told her we were still working I. It she muttered something and walked away. We had to ask twice for water.

It was a busy Saturday night and I’m happy to see this place busy but I do not think this server is of Doolittle’s quality.

Wings were tough/very sinewy. There were chicken bones found in the cranberry chicken salad. Steaks were underdone. Service was with a smile but several times during our meal there was a wait for attention.

We often go to Doolittles but usually on a week night. We went on Friday and there was a change of course. It was more crowded and noisier. The service was slower but that to be expected. The food was reliably fine. We will go back but prefer week nights with less commotion.

Host was unprepared and uninformed We had a reservation and he didn’t know. It was clearly on his computer screen. His first word were” Well we have a lot of people in here” There were at least 3 tables available. Then I requested a booster seat. He brought a high chair.I said I wanted a booster seat he said we don’t have any. I asked our waitress she brought me one . Chicken sandwiches were way over salted not edible. One person in our party asked for his burger to be medium rare. It was so over done he couldn’t eat it. They did bring him another one but it came after we were all done eating. We won’t be back.

Exceptional service. A good bottle of Pinot and excellent salads. The ribs were overcooked, the chicken leg/thigh was the size of a Cornish game hen, and the asparagus was the thickness of a pile of pick-up-sticks. Excellent waitress.
