Great food, great service, and great atmosphere as always!
We started with a bottle of the well-rated Justin Justification red blend chosen from the reasonable wine list. We then ordered two first courses - Asian pear and blood orange salad and kale and beets with goat cheese salad. Both were creative and excellent! My fiancé ordered the lamb entree’ and I had the grilled snapper. Both were terrific. The lamb may have had a bit too much salt on top. We also shared a dessert - warm brioche, homemade orange marmalade and whipped cream. It was simple and good! Service was top notch.
Fabulous food, great value. Unique, generally healthy dishes you don’t generally find in this area. Wine list is excellent with top-level selections, but also some less expensive, but high quality offerings.
Chef Chris is the best. He is personable likeable prepares dinners that are sumptuous. His staff is wonderful and the ambiance is terrific. In my estimation the best restaurant in Jacksonville and surrounding areas. A must place to dine. Gary Snyder
Great food. Chef Christopher Polidoro has created a well balanced menu, with fresh flavors. I enjoyed restaurant DORO and can’t wait to go again 😊
What an incredibly special night!! Extremely delicious food and the best staff to make our night! Daniels wine knowledge and food recommendations were spot on and we cannot wait to come back and enjoy the more items off the menu!
This was our first time. We always walked by, but finally made a reservation. The food was amazing and the service was great. Wife had the short ribs and it made me wish I had ordered it. The schnitzel appetizer was delicious. We will definitely go again.
Literally the best of the best. The food is outstanding in every way, the service is friendly, efficient, and the venue intimate. Love Love Love!!
Food was excellent and the service was fantastic. Wish there were a few more menu options, however. It was my first time, I imagine if menu changes often this would not be an issue.
My husband isn't a wine drinker so he ordered a diet coke. He was served a half glass of coke with no ice......then when that was gone he asked for a refill and got a full glass still no ice. He was charged for 2 cokes.....seemed a little petty to us as most restaurants do free refills. Beyond that the food and service was good.
Wonderful experience across the board. Judge for yourself
Doro is our favorite place to take a special friend or a newcomer to the beach. It has classy and yet casual atmosphere and excellent creatively prepared food that we love.
Excellent food, service. Noisy. Would have liked larger portion. Pricy, but worth it for a special occasion, perhaps not an every week place.
Enjoyed another evening among friends at Doro. The food is fantastic and I had been looking forward to trying the duck - my gosh, it was so good! A couple of my favorites for first course are the yellowtail tartare and simple greens, which were thoroughly enjoyed. Finished my meal with the brioche custard and a scoop of their homemade vanilla ice cream. Just delightful! Chef Chris and his front and back of the house teams are fantastic and Doro continues to be a gem in Neptune Beach. It’s also lovely going during the week as it’s a lot more chill than the ‘more energetic’ weekend nights (which can be great, but I prefer calmer evenings). Will be back for sure!
I wish there were more than 5 stars to give! Everything on the menu was full of flavor, satisfying and healthy! I have some dietary restrictions and the Chef/Owner Christopher Polidoro took the time to work with me and customize a dish to meet my needs and preferences. It was a beautiful restaurant with a welcoming team and atmosphere. Chef Christopher came out and shook my hand and talked through the dish when I arrived, and I really enjoyed the personal touch. His creativity and passion for beautiful cuisine that nourishes the body was evident. I ordered the snapper and it was hands down one of the best pieces of fish I have ever eaten. Doro works to source ingredients locally when possible and uses Wild Caught seafood. It felt great to be able to go out for dinner and know that the ingredients in my dish simple and clean and would not leave me feeling bad. I left feeling completely satisfied! Also did I mention they cook everything in olive oil instead of refined and progressed vegetable oil? That is so rare these days and so important for our health!
Our waitstaff was quite knowledgeable, friendly and responsive. The food was presented well and we enjoyed it very much, especially the pote de creme. The atmosphere (the place probably has capacity for only 30 guests) was quiet and perfect for our special occasion. Definitely a return visit is in order.
Another outstanding evening at Doro.
The duck and crispy short rib were both delicious entrees and the wine pairing was perfect.
Thank you Chef Chris and Daniel
Great personalized service. High quality food. The chef accommodated our vegan requests. Very nice overall, our only complaint is the noise level.
As always great and delicious food. My husband and I like the variety of entree choices as well as wine selections. Love coming here!
Excellent food, diverse menu, great service, hip vibe.
Great food but won’t go back due to the acoustics. Way too loud. Hard to have a basic conversation.
Exceptional as always
We were somewhat disappointed in our first visit to Doro. As an Uber/Lyft driver, I had dropped off a few riders who gave Doro rave reviews as had a couple of friends of ours. While the decor, ambiance, etc., were great as expected, the food did not impress us as much as we had expected and hoped. The salad was outstanding and the scallops were very good - tender, moist, and tasty. Unfortunately, the red snapper tasted somewhat bland and was not hot, barely lukewarm. The service was excellent but we were the first to arrive as they opened for dinner at 5:30pm. They did try to make up for the red snapper by making the salad complementary. Unfortunately, as this was a special, anniversary dinner for my wife, that did not make up for her disappointment with the red snapper. We will try Doro, again, in the hopes we just hit the wrong night. And, maybe, the next time we will like it so much we will ask for a menu for me to place in the back seat of my car for my Uber/Lyft passengers.... I only offer menu's of places we really like! :-)
Experienced kitchen delivers on a well thought through, fresh and terrific menu. Service very attentive. A favorite in this area.
It was a birthday celebration, which I called to confirm but they totally forgot about it...
Food is best in Jacksonville and service was quick.
Very very bright white light and will get very loud when full.
Doro was excellent! The food tasted so fresh, clean and delicious. I would highly recommend
Love this place! Food and service are outstanding
My husband and I rang in the new year here! Food, atmosphere, service (Michelle) were all excellent. We had such a great experience, we will be back for sure.
Food outstanding, but too noisy, and service less than desired
I had guests in from out of town, this used to be my very favorite place. I had many options but felt they just HAD to try Doro! They were out of the daily special and out of another dish too! That left a very limited menu. Food was very disappointing. We sent 3 dishes back! I was so embarrassed. I don’t know if it was just a bad night or if I need to Mark this one off my list 🙁
Doro is always an outstanding dinner location. Great food and service.
Always an amazing place to dine, Doro offers fresh, flavorful cuisine in a beautiful setting. Thank you Mikail for the great service. Will visit again soon!
Very nice folks. Eat the schnitzel!!!
Chris the chef is a fantastic chef. His meals are an epicurean delight, my favorite is the snapper. Chris is warm friendly and he always greets his guests and treats them as family. In my opinion this restaurant is the finest Jacksonville has to offer. It is truly a gem. The staff is also outstanding and warm and courteous and I always look forward to taking my family and out of town guests to this wonderful restaurant. I rate it 5 stars. garys
Great place. Our favorite place.

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.
