Great food! Once the restaurant is full, it gets loud. Otherwise always a good experience!
Chris and team did it again - another terrific meal and delightful evening.
Yes I would recommend it, but I would warn them of how loud it is.
Awesome food and wonderful service! Daniel our waiter was very attentive.
Excellent food ! The crispy beef short rib is amazing. The schnitzel is amazing too ! Haven’t had a disappointment yet ! Service is excellent too !
Doro has become a go to for us on date night. The schnitzel appetizer and the fresh fish are a must order.
Fantastic food, menu, service. This is a place for all occasions!
wonderful foody restaurant. Fresh and refreshing meals
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!
Phenomenal food. Very nice atmosphere.
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!
best restaurant at the beach, unless you're just looking for a burger or quick casual place.
Thanks, Chris. As usual, delicious, fresh, friendly and professional!
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.
Noise baffles should be installers. Ambiance was negatively impacted by the noise levels
Birthday! It was a wonderful experience!!
Really excellent food. Nothing like it at the beach. And the service is wonderful - we were remembered from our last visit which was months ago. He even remembered our wine. And the food was terrific again. Go go go!
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!
One of the best places in Jacksonville....Great food, great service and good vib. Feels more like a big city restaurant.
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.
Expensive but absolutely worth it. We've been here a few times and every time it's been amazing.
Quiet Birthday for my husband
Fish over cooked, tough and not a good piece. Everything else was good.
went early to avoid noise ---seated a large table of women next to us ---restaurant was not full
lamb ordered medium rare ---came very raw ---sent it back ---dinner for 2 --$100 I live in the neighborhood---will not be back
On vacation from frozen MN
Spectacular food. Good size portions! Daniel was attentive, knowledgeable and so personable! My sister so enjoyed her first time there! Thank You All!
The service was fantastic and the food was very creative and tasteful. We would definitely go back.
Loved everything but the decor, little bit like an ice cream shop :/ would be great to cozy it up and darken it down...but otherwise, GREAT
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!
Great food! Great surprise find for us. Just visiting the area for a night. Wonderful foodie place to go. Wine was very nice and the appetizers were wonderful. 5 stars all the way around.
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.
Food is always fantastic as is the service. One of our favorites!!!
Doro's has become one of the top dining experiences in North Florida. Executive Chef (Owner) Chris and his staff are top notch! Food presentation, portions, taste, wine list selection, and overall experience has become second-to-none. Strongly encourage the experience. Sonny.
delicious food, beautiful presentation!!! Quiet atmosphere was a pleasant surprise in any restaurant these days!!
Went with a large group early in the week. The restaurant is small so once it’s full it can seem loud. However, the food was so well prepared and fresh tasting that I made a return visit later in the week. Can’t wait to go back next time I visit the area. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Always great healthy food beautifully presented and prepared awesome service low fuss
Great food, great service, and great atmosphere as always!
Delicious food, decent portions,nice atmosphere and great service
