One of my local favorites! Friendly and engaging staff. An absolute must for a quaint girls night out!
Great food, very tasty, good wines cozy and intimate, would go again
We Love Doro. Daniel and Michelle are wonderful and provide outstanding service. Chris has a wonderful menu that is healthy and tastes delicious. Xavier does a great job preparing our dishes.
Best meal we have had in a really long time! Don't miss this culinary gem.
First time visiting Doro. Food was wonderful, service friendly and attentive. Highly recommend the grilled snapper and yellowtail carpaccio.
Quaint, quiet setting to enjoy a delicious meal with your significant other. Service was great, polite, accommodating and the atmosphere inviting.
My wife and I made the reservation for ourselves and a couple friends of ours she was celebrating her 80th birthday which made the dinner very special. The service and food were excellent. The parking was no cost at a convenient valet off Lemon St. with Doro validation of the ticket.
Thank you Doro for delicious and interesting menu.
I am a foodie and I Love Doro. Delicious, creative and just all around excellent!
Meeting friends from out of town
I consider myself a food expert. I have eaten well throughout my life and in many countries and cultures. This is a very fine restaurant. I would give it 4.75 stars out of 5.0 and only because the venue is very hard and as a result, load. We ate early and got the lamb and the halibut. The lamb was one of the best I have ever had. No joke.
Fantastic place. Great atmosphere very clean look. Opens up to the clean fun kitchen. FANTASTIC food. Octopus and yellowtail apps unreal. Duck and ribeye entrees fantastic.
Our experience at Doro was excellent as always. We love the food and the ambiance. in my opinion one of the best restaurants at the Beaches
I loved Doro the first time I went, but food fell short on my second occasion. Would not recommend the crispy spare ribs. Looked like a plate of two large brownies and were a bit dry, with not much flavor.
I have been to this restaurant numerous times. Every time has been spectacular. The food is exquisite. The staff is great. Really enjoy being able to dine where perfection is practice. The waiter we had was very good, and also described the menu and ask if we had any other questions at all. The Cuisine is excellent On one of the occasions had the opportunity to be at the restaurant at closing time and went out with Chris (owner and Xavier one of the other Chef's) It was refreshing to see how he treats others. A true gentleman, very genuine and authentic. And a great chef.
I was already familiar with Doro, I personally love it, and we met up with friends that were dining there for the first time. They were so pleased with the fresh, healthier cuisine and amazing flavors, the beach-chic ambiance and the friendly, attentive service (thank you Michelle!). Always happy when I have an opportunity to dine at Doro and pleased my friends loved it also. Chef Chris’ restaurant is truly a gem!
Schnitzel is great along with the apple and pear salad. It was all downhill from there with the short ribs and lamb chops to the carpaccio. Very disappointed because it almost reminded me of a “chef’s experience”-type place. May have to give it another try when a new menu comes out, but the noise is pretty bad too and I don’t know how they can fix that problem.
Food very good. Ambience a little odd. Email reminder from the restaurant had a dress code! Business Casual. So we dressed up a little. We were then greeted by a male host in a bright blue surfer shirt and shorts! Dress code for guests but not staf??
We are now frequent visitors to Door, and we will continue to be so. Great all around.
Dined at Doro with a group of my managers and their wives and the meal was fantastic. The pork schnitzel appetizer and the short rib entrée were delicious. The home made ice cream with chocolate sauce was the perfect ending to a satisfying meal. I highly recommend Doro to anyone wanting a unique menu and extremely pleasant dining experience.
The Schnitzel and Short Rib were divine! Great wine selection!
I have been to Doro six times now and as in the past continue to be amazed. The atmosphere, food, wine choices, and service a delight to experience. There is nothing more exciting to me to be able to leave a restaurant and know that the experience was worth every penny!
So many friends have raved about Doro and now we know why!!
Can’t wait to go back
I took my husband there for a birthday dinner. He is a native New Yorker and used to be a food critic, so he is a tough customer. He loved it and gave compliments to the chef, a very rare experience! We will be back!
The food at Doro is next level. For an appetizer we did the pork shnitzel and then for entree's we did short ribs and scallops with a side of cauliflower puree. Everything was so damn good and filling. We also ordered wine and the waitress brought out a different red she suggested we try (and ended up having instead because it was phenomenal). The price point is extremely fair for food this fresh and the presentation it comes it. Definitely try Doro.
This was the best meal my wife and I have enjoyed in the last year or so and we have dined at some very good restaurants.
We both started with the watermelon tomato soup, served cold, which was excellent. My wife selected the scallops and I chose the red snapper. Both were outstanding.
We spoke briefly with the chef-owner and were impressed with his philosophy of buying the best available that was like local.
On a side note, the wine selection was decent. I had a nice Simona Chardonnay that paired nicely with the snapper.
I will definitely return when in the area.
Absolutely phenomenal food! Was even better than expected and will go back every time we are in town. Was very reasonable priced as well for such a nice restaurant!
Very nice atmosphere. This might be my new favorite in jax. Sometimes can be a bit loud for intimate dining but food is outstanding and people are great. Highly recommend the short ribs and the snapper.
Enjoyed our meal here. Good wine list and creative cuisine, although some dishes had elements that didn't work that well (e.g., salt granules with the burrata cheese salad). I was a tad disappointed that the scallops had been halved, which made the serving of 4 more like a serving of 2, although the preparation was excellent. I found the take on "risotto" using faro and wheatberry to be interesting and nicely flavored, but much to chewy for my taste. I'm being a bit picky because I think this restaurant has the promise of being truly outstanding, it just hasn't gotten there yet. The best recommendation is that we plan to make a return visit in the future.
Love Doro! Excellent service, delicious food served in perfectly sized portions. Must book- We will keep going back!
We absolutely love going to Doro and I am the most fussy eater ever!!!
Always creative and delicious - and we love bringing friends here.
Lovely intimate dinner spot. Light and airy beach feel. Food was executed perfectly. Wonderful flavors and beautifully presented
Possibly the best meal we've had in Jacksonville, and in the top ten maybe ever.
I would love to give Doro a 5 star rating, but the noise is way beyond "energetic". It is miserably loud to the point of not being able to have a conversation across the small table for two. Also, the tables are so close it is impossible to have even a semi-private conversation even if the restaurant is not crowded. The good news is the food is fabulous. Try the veal starter. Staff are friendly and attentive. I doubt I can convince my husband to return despite the yummy food.
My advice to the owner: Find a different location where your delicious food can be enjoyed in an environment that it deserves.
This was a special day. I like to take my girlfriend on a date night at least once a week. Some place very nice at least twice a month. I'm a foodie, so I like to visit good places fit for a foodie. This place did not disappoint.
Shortly after dinner, we went for coffee... and I proposed to my date. She said, "Yes"!
Doro was a great start to a wonderful evening. Wonderful food, excellent service, and a great romantic atmosphere.
Chris the chef and owner is an amazing chef. His dishes are superb, his waiters and waitresses are excellent. The ambiance is great. This restaurant is my favorite go to place. Gary snyder
Food delicious. Service wonderful. Intimate but slightly noisy because of that. Highly recommend.
