My husband and I visited Doro for the 2nd time, this one for our 23rd Anniversary and we loved it just as much as the first visit. The intimate feel, the amazing food and the service are all top notch! My husband had the lamb which was done a perfect medium rare and I had the snapper which was flaky and perfect! We will return!

We met another couple for dinner, and had a great time! The seating was comfortable and quiet but lively atmosphere. The food was delicious as always! We tried the chocolate layer dessert which is now my new favorite.

Doro is our favorite restaurant. We look forward to dining with them every chance we get... and introducing everyone we know to this area’s culinary superstar.
The clean, contemporary decor is a foreshadowing of the meal to come. The food is scrumptious - fresh, seasonal, flavorful, unfussy and creative. The owner/chef, a graduate of the Culinary Institutr of America, is friendly and passionate. His staff obviously takes their cue from him and is both knowledgeable and pleasant.

Doro is one of the best restaurants in Neptune Beach. Brought the family in for the first time (theirs, not mine. I’m a regular :D ) and in the words of my father, “the food was PERFECT!”. Thank you chef Chris and team, and thank you Michelle for taking such great care of us too!

From the moment you walk into Doro you know you are in for a treat! Excellent service, delicious entrees and if you have room have dessert! My favorite is the Cannoli! They will even give you freshly made whip cream if you ask! Run don't walk to Doro!

We had reservations for our 12th anniversary. The table we were seated at was in between 2 other tables of guests. My husband asked if we could have a different table, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We actually ended up sitting at the counter which I highly recommend if you can! The service was top notch, food was delicious, and we loved being able to see the chef at work. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Will definitely go back!

Loved the creativity in the menu, we had the Octopus appetizer which was perfectly cooked, tender and an appropriate serving size, for our entrees we had the lamb and the scallops, both cooked to perfection. Decor is simple and beautiful, a chic beach feel. Service was attentive, not 5 starts just because we’ve experienced service that totally wowed us and we didn’t feel that way. It’s a small place and it was packed which made it a bit loud (something I personally don’t mind at all) but I would prefer some background music to complete the ambiance. Will absolutely go back.

We tried the octopus and greens salad to start and were immediately blown away! Very fresh and delicious. For entrees we ordered the ribeye, the lamb loin and the short ribs (three of us dining). They were all outstanding and unique! The short rib was absolutely divine! Can’t wait to go back!

The food was phenomenal. The lamb loin was cooked perfectly as well as the sea scallops. Also loved the shnitzel and burrata appetizers. My only disappointment was it is pretty small with concrete floors so very loud. It was my anniversary and my husband kept asking me to repeat myself...and we are under 40. Also, it took quite a bit for our server to come over and ask about drinks. On a positive note the appetizers came out quick but again the entree was slow. I would definitely go back there again as the food quality was outstanding, but just wouldn't expect to have any substantial conversation.

This was our second annual visit to Doro and, like last year, we'll be returning twice during our one week vacay in the area. The food is simple, creative, sophisticated but so accessible. They do a salad with Asian greens, Asian pears, blood orange and toasted pistachios that is a still- life to look at and a work of art in terms of taste. Every dish, and we've tasted several, is creative in it's execution but never unusual just to be different. Don't miss the crispy short ribs or the snapper with a luscious compote of cherry tomatoes and olive oil. The cool, smart, simple space is a welcome step above most local fish houses. If all you want is fried fish there are plenty of fish houses in the area. But if you'd like an unpretentious but memorable meal don't miss Doro!

We've been going to Doro from the beginning and have never understood how people hadn't discovered how wonderful it is....now people get it!! Chef/owner Chris, has presented the beach with well prepared, well presented interesting menus....best at the beach (and maybe in Jacksonville).

We have been twice now.The first time was excellent.
This time the noise was overwhelming and my $30 plus steak came out cold.
I sent it back to be reheated and it came back over done.
That happens but not one word of interest or apology from management was very disappointing.
We will probably give it one more try,but not soon.
