This was a family of 4 1st visit. The meals were outstanding, we ordered 6 different menu items and all were outstanding as each family membered bragged about there own menu choices. This was one of my favorite meals of all time. The duck, steak, short ribs, chicken, beets and goat cheese salad awesome. Thanks Chef and staff.
Doro is one of my favorites for a creative menu, artistic food styling and delicious cuisine. The hit of this meal was the pistachio soup. Additionally, the service is always warm and welcoming. Thank you, Chef Chris, for making our neighborhood your home.
Since moving to JAX this past January, Doro has been our favorite “go to” for special occasions. Everyone is very friendly, the food is always amazing, and Melissa always takes great care of us and makes a personal connection!
We have dined at this restaurant several times.
On this visit the food wasn’t as good as prior visits.
Snapper was oily and rib eye was tough.
Wondering since it was Sunday the regular chef was off?
Always great experience the food is just delicious!
Everything was great! I would only lower the music a bit
First time here after hearing nothing but rave reviews from friends. Doro did not disappoint! We will definitely be back!
For foodies and non foodies. Chief Chris is amazing and innovative.
Exceptional, beautifully prepared food.. informative, educated, extremely polite personnel. Lovely, intimate environment!
This place is a foodie's delight. Menu items are varied and a little pricey but everything we had was delicious. I recommend the short ribs. The schnitzel appetizer is also very good.
Party of two couples. Service was attentive and genuinely friendly. Food was outstanding in both presentation and appearance. My only food “complaint” would be the portions could have been a bit larger (4 scallops instead of only 3, although scallops were very large and cooked perfectly). Getting a first and second course (which I would recommend unless you are not very hungry) pushes the cost per meal to the mid to upper 30’s. I also thought the chairs seemed a bit pedestrian and worn for the restaurant. Noise level was high, as conversations echo off the walls and ceiling. Overall a great experience and this restaurant is now on our list to visit more frequently.
Great food but the portions are quite small on some of the menu items.
Food was amazing! Service could have been better. Took a while to get water for the table and put in drink order. Chef was very friendly and kind!
Overall the food was great. I didn't care for the vegan risotto or the cauliflower puree. The risotto wasn't cooked all the way through and the olive oil used to roast the cauliflower was too heavy and spoiled the taste. I was a little surprised that the room was so small and crammed. It was so loud at times I couldn't hear what was said to me by my dinner companion. I would go again to try out other items on the menu because the dishes are rather unusual for Jacksonville and I appreciate it.
The food was good, but our server clearly showed her displeasure that we did not want to order entrees (we weren’t that hungry). It became awkward and uncomfortable, so we left without ordering anything else and went to Ragtime for another appetizer and more wine.
Wonderful little place with fabulous food. Appetizers especially good. It was cold-a/c blowing but I still loved my scallops
Everything was perfect to celebrate my husband on Father’s Day! Thank you!!!
This was my first visit an everyone told me how great it was and they were correct. It was exceptional from the service to the presentation to the food.
It was loud and crowded; we were seated right away but server didn’t greet us or offer water for 10 mins-wevwlmist left! Food ( snapper and beet salad) was meh. Service pretty bad though friendly( too busy we think). We wouldn’t go back.
Chic coastal vibe. Professional service and food was done just right. The lamb and grouper - excellent! Will be back.
Great dinner. The simple greens with the creamy ginger dressing is my favorite salad. The new summer prep for the snapper was delicious with the loves and summer squash. The tile fish special with the fennel and basil atop the eggplant was amazing. Highly recommend this place.
A standard to go to now!
Exceptional from start to finish!!! Blown away by the skillful and restrained presentations and perfectly cooked proteins. My whole family of big eaters were thrilled to celebrate Dad’s 70th here. Everything excellent. Must eats include the octopus, burrata, Schnitzel, scallops and lamb. Friendly and knowledgeable service. Chef at the helm in the open kitchen and out talking to tables added to experience. Lovely ambiance. Charming neighborhood. A reason to return to Neptune Beach for sure.
Fantastic food with great service!
All hard surfaces, so it is a bit loud. The food and service were very good. I would go back.
Wonderful food, diverse menu and great experience.
Great food, champagne and service. Only wines and beers to drink, but that works great for us. The fish was so fresh and the salads were delicious. Portion size was perfect—not huge or too small. We didn’t have dessert, but it looked fabulous. Can’t wait to go back!!
Wonderful! Go early
This was my first time. I loved it. The food, the drinks, the people and all in a quaint little place!! Love it!! Did I tell you that I love it!! :)
What an outstanding dining experience.
The watermelon salad and octopus appetizer that Chef Chris prepared were both delicious.
Daniel provided excellent service and perfect wine pairings for both courses.
My wife enjoyed the snapper and I had the wonderful market fish, hog snapper that was out of this world.
Food and service were excellent! It’s cute and cozy, looking forward to going back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Doro!
The food was very creative and good! The noise level a challenge.
Wow! This is my new favorite beaches restaurant! Fresh decor, fresh food prepared in a healthy imaginative way, made this a perfect relaxed meal. Can’t wait to go back.
For those who havent dined at Doro, it is the best restaurant at the Beaches of Jacksonville. Always start with the burrata no matter the preparation. Outstanding every time I visit
Love this place.
Absolutely love this place. Lived in the beaches area for 15 years, now up North and this restaurant is as good as it gets, if not the best restaurant at the beach. Crystal our server made us feel right at home as did the Chris the owner. There were 4 of us and we all had different 1st and 2nd courses and of course the Doro homemade ice cream for dessert. Presentation of the food was 5 star as was the quality of the food. I loved the yellowtail tar tare and the grilled snapper and my other 3 companions raved about the lamb, crispy short ribs and the halibut, which was the fish of the day. The wine selection was excellent as well. It is a shame I live back up North as I would be a regular here.
Wonderful! Loved the food and the service. It's a great restaurant.
Our second time there. Food was amazing. Service was incredible also. Thanks Daniel!
