A great inner-suburb destination. The woodfired food is filled with flavor and the recipes the chefs have perfected bring out the best in all that I have eaten at Doolittle's.

...one other thing: Don't miss the Mudslide pie for dessert!

Our reservation through Open Table worked out great. As soon as we arrived, our table was ready and we were seated. Our server Eric was there immediately to take our drink order and explain the special on the Valentines weekend menu. The drinks arrived promptly and Eric answered questions and made some recommendations that we went with when ordering. Along with our entrees, we decided to share a starter Caesar Salad, it was brought to the table already split on separate plates which was a nice touch. The entree’s, grilled salmon and crab raviolis were not only served with an eye pleasing presentation, the were delicious and would highly recommend either. We have been to Doolittles many times in the past and the food and service are always good but tonight seemed exceptional. From the greeting to our server Eric, followed by an excellent meal in a very relaxed setting made for a great night.

We have gone here for years, and love the atmosphere and ability to hold a conversation. But our last few visits have been sub par, especially in regards to the food. Not sure if they have different kitchen staff or what, but it’s not like it used to be.

We found this place in the last year, and have kind of made it our go to. Very reasonably priced, and typically really good food and service. Atmosphere is a bit dated and bright, but we like the place overall.

The food was good although one of the entrees was delivered cold and had to be sent back to the kitchen. Overall the service was okay but a little slow. Generally our experiences at this restaurant have been better than this one. It's unfortunate because you kind of want Valentines Day to be a special experience. This one wasn't.

Valentine’s Day . Special was not much. Pretty much just the regular menu. No 3 course like most restaurants do on Valentines. Waited 1/2 hour with the reservation.

A fave generally. The atmosphere can be off with the dated decor, lighting and noise levels, but the food is good and the prices very reasonable.

We were out celebrating New Year’s Eve and decided to come to one of our favorite places. As usual, it didn’t disappoint. They were very accommodating of our request that was added to the reservation that we be seated in the room with the fireplace. Our waitress was extremely friendly and seemed to have a very thorough knowledge of the menu. The food was fresh and delicious. This will continue to be a place we come to frequently (and bring friends with us)!

As always, the food at Doolittle’s was excellent. My party tried a new appetizer, as well as a new wine selection. Both were beyond my expectations. Kudos to our exceptionally knowledgable and pleasant server! This locale has interesting wood features in what appears to be a sunroom seating area. Beautiful. this will be our location for visits to come.

Was looking forward to taking our family here after a show. Unfortunately this visit was not our best. The food was disappointing and our server just didn't seem to be having a good day.

Food was fine, would have appreciated a bit more attention from our server. He appeared rushed, did not ever come back to check on our table after food was served, (in fact he was not even the one to serve the food). Overall, just okay.

Excellent food and atmosphere. When I went on a weekday at 4pm, it was not loud and took our time. We didn’t feel rushed to get in and out.

We have been here before and they have good food however I was very disappointed to find out that they now have MSG is most of their food. Unfortunately I am allergic to MSG, making finding a meal difficult. We may not be back because of this.

Cozy ambiance. Wonderful food - the chicken is an obvious winner, but the salmon was incredible as well. Attentive staff. Fast service even on a Friday night.

The food was amazing,it came quickly and tasted wonderful, the atmosphere was wonderful, service could have been better, took forever after ordering our drink to get them, we had half of our appetizer gone before we got our wine: and we order them at the same time. Not impressed with the waiter we had.

Great service and was friendly. Good gluten free options. Prefer coke over pepsi products. Easy parking. We can hear each other talk as it is not too loud. We really enjoy coming to Doolittles in Golden Valley and have dined here at least once every few months for years.

Service and food was excellent. Had the duck and it was good, jerk chicken had good favor but not spicy. Beer was good and so was the blue party mojito. Service was well paced for our taste, not quick, and allowed for us to chat between appetizers, main meal, and dessert.
