This is one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. The food was amazing! The service was excellent. Wonderful ambiance.
Loved everything about the restaurant - food and service were great. The wine list is good, but the prices are well over the normal one should pay for retail + corkage/service fees.
Very good food and service. All four members of our party were happy with their dinner. 2 snappers, 1 scallops, 1 short rib.
Although recently we've had to wait past our reservation time to be seated, it's still worth it. Inventive, fresh and local cuisine that does not disappoint.
We went here because we were celebrating my 30th birthday. I had made the reservation several days in advance, knowing it was a small venue. The food was top notch delicious! The service, however, was very slow. The waitress was not really paying attention. Maybe 5 minutes after paying the bill, a waitress approached our table and asked us if we minded LEAVING!!! I probably will not return to or recommend the restaurant because of this. It is a shame, because the food really was delicious. It was appallingly rude, as we had just spent quite a bit for dinner.
Unbelievable dining experience. Smaller, eclectic ,full range, unordinary, exciting menue. Server , Mikala, was amazing!! She was a true professional, efficient, warm, truly knowledgeable, with great recommendations. Her timing of our extensive order was 100% spot on. The food was nothing less than to-die-for. Was my first time. Can't wait to go back. Hoping the chef keeps it fresh. If so, I will be a lifer. Yummy!!
Love Doro! Always a delectable meal! Look forward to bringing more people who are new to Doro for dinner.
Great food, atmosphere and service. Would highly recommend!
My friends and I like to eat out every month and we like to try new places. This is a small restaurant, but, it was a wonderful meal and the service could not have been better. I did send out email to many other friends to try and also made specific recommendations.
Stunningly simple interior creates a very relaxing atmosphere. Perfect back drop to an outstanding dining experience. We both ordered chef's specials and we're thrilled with both the freshness of the fish and the preparation. Service is spot on.
Excellent service and great food. Only downside is it is loud. Several large parties raised the noice level. Will continue to return because of food and service.
Seriously the best restaurant in Jacksonville!! The food is always fresh and delicious 😋. Chef Chris is amazing and it’s always a pleasure to dine here. 💜
We found the place deliteful and the food spectacular. Unfortunately a party of 12 came in and raised the noise level to a painful volume. In addition, 3 women waiting for a table left their seats at the bar and carrid on their loud conversation hovering over me. The restaurant deserves 5 stars but some of the customers 0. We will return at an earlier hour.
The food was delicious. The service could be better. We felt rushed through the meal. For a gourmet restaurant, I would not expect to be rushed out of our table when we were still having desserts and drinks. The common timing at a gourmet restaurant for seat turnover would be 2 hrs for average of two people per table. The restaurant is quite small and the noise level was very high to where we can barely hear each other talk. Patrons had no spacial awareness and kept bumping into us, while we were seated at our table, to greet their group or while trying to get to their table. Some patrons kept bumping into the back of my friend's head while standing around talking to other patrons that were eating. We tried to politely get their attention but it was as if we were invisible. The server should have directed them to wait outside since there weren't much space to wait in the restaurant. I would have given this place 5 stars if the ambiance and service was better.
Not a burger or taco joint! Great upscale dining tucked into Neptune beach. My wife and I loved our meal and will most definitely eat here again!
Always a pleasure dining at Doro. The staff is knowledgeable/professional, ambiance is casual/comfortable "beach-chic", and food is AMAZING!
One of the best meals I have ever had. Anywhere. This could be in any city in the US and hold its own.
The food was outstanding and the service was wonderful.
The meal was fantastic!
Always impressed and pleased.
Local Gem for fine dining, open kitchen, caring Chef Owner. Great wine list, attention to detail!
The only thing missing is the bar*
A superb selection of starters - schnitzel, octopus, tuna - creatively prepared, easily combined one with another for sharing, and priced like they really want to you to try them.
Seafood centric menu fitting for the location - fin fish predominate but the scallops are really great - and the menu anchoring rib steak compares with area’s best.
The wine list is well selected, well priced with a couple of splurge opportunities in the red side. The only thing missing as a stirred cocktail to start and a single malt on the way out the door.
Very small plates. Wasn’t really crazy about menu offerings. $7.00 extra for a side. I had pork tenderloin. Was a bit tough and chewy. Cute little place. I would advise making a reservation as it’s very small. Waiter was very attentive, and did make the comment items on menu are ever changing, so maybe will give it another chance.
Had a lovely anniversary dinner! We will definitely be back!
I've been coming to Ponte Vedra for 30 years and this is, by far, the best restaurant in the area. worth the drive from PV for sure! Will definitely be back. Love everything on the menu, lovely bottle of wine, clean, cool, chic. 10+!!!
Favorite restaurant in Neptune Beach, hands down. Service is OUTSTANDING and the food is awesome. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone who craves a true romantic experience.
Really, really wanted to love this place Maybe expectations were too high Perfect charred octopus Boring veal. At right temp but it essentially sat there amongst lima beans and tomato. Perhaps a berry reduction or demi glace. Partner's paillard was dry. Ricotta cannoli were a refreshing end. No bread service
Love this restaurant! Food is always excellent. Tables are a little close together, but they make the best of the space they have. It wasn’t a deterrent. Duck is fabulous and the special Swordfish was too!
Loved everything about Doro! The menu was interesting and has a nice wine selection, ambiance was clean, modern and well lit (perfect for date night). The staff was perfectly attentive and accommodating. But more importantly...the food was on point! Beautifully plated dishes, carefully thought out local ingredients, clean flavors, and fresh seafood. On a side note- We also really appreciated that 85% of the menu didn't contain meat or pork in the dishes like a lot of other places- pescatarian friendly!
Best food in Jacksonville
Doro is fantastic. Our second time here and it just gets better. We had the yellowtail carpaccio, pulpo and short ribs, among other things. Flavors were amazing.
The combination of flavors, textures, colors, spices and the food cooked to perfection is what makes us wanting to come back and back again.
Once again, an exceptional dining experience. Chris and the Doro team consistently deliver a bravo performance. Our meals were extraordinary, the service perfect and our evening delightful. Thank you!
Absolutely love this place and would consider it a top restaraunt in Jacksonville. Extremely fresh ingredients and high quality. From first course to desert, Doro is amazing.
Clean, fresh, amazing food with beautiful presentation.
Food and service were excellent as usual!! Amazing restaurant
The beaches are very lucky to have a creative chef of this caliber gracing our dining scene. Doro is a small restaurant with a light, airy and beachy ambiance. The menu is also small but very well thought out with offerings that appeal to a wide audience. For appetizers we chose the burrata cheese with tomato jam & peaches along with the charred octopus with red pepper vinaigrette. My spouse had never had octopus before and he raved about it. The burrata was spectacular as well. Our server mentioned that the veal tenderloin was his personal favorite so that is what my spouse had and it did not disappoint. I chose the pork schnitzel with shaved vegetables from the appetizer section as my main and loved the spicy sweet dressing. In general, every dish looks like a work of art and the sauces are unusual and so flavorful. Our only regret is that we did not sample any of the vegetable sides nor the desserts but there is always next time.
Always a treat being at Doro. Vibrant atmosphere and delicious food that is so fresh, local and simply prepared! By far, one of our very favorites.
Way way too loud for us. We had to yell across our small table. Definitely a beach party crowd the night we were there. Waiter took our order then never returned until it was time for the bill. Food was amazing though.
Always a favorite
