We enjoyed the most incredible meal at Doro tonight. We had the short ribs, grilled snapper and the seared scallops. Also the most delicious bottle of wine from the Boudreaux region of France. A perfect evening with my husband and our special childhood friend the Bay Area. A very delightful evening for all. Thank you Christopher and all of your staff who made our evening so special.

I just wish Doro was in a larger, less noisy location. The food and service are wonderful. People will follow. No need to be located in the thick of things at the Town Center iof Atlantic Beach. Also, more comfortable chairs would be nice.

They need to fix the AC blowing on tables against the wall. I’ve brought it up a number of times but nothing is ever done. Also the hostess needs to learn how to properly greet someone. You say “hello, how are you? May I have your name please?” ?Not “what’s your name” as I’m one step in the done. It was very off putting.

Buratta appetizer was different from the typical preparation and was delicious. My husband's short ribs were fabulous. My fish of the day, halibut I believe, was good but I prefer more seasoning. Our waitress was excellent. Wines were great, homemade ice cream dessert was simple but delicious. Would definitely visit again.

The best fresh fish I ever ate in Jacksonville. Every food was amazing, the suggested wine was also fantastic. The only thing I complained a little was the noise level: too loud!
I really recommend it! I will return for sure!

Food is incredible! A very small place, so if one table is loud, the whole place is loud. The chef is the owner. And it shows in how he prepares the dishes.

We were a party of 8 on a golf trip and made the journey from Ponte Vedra to check it out. Doro is small and somewhat intimate with an open kitchen offering a smaller menu than some other places, but everyone in our group found something they liked. Food and wine were very good, and service was above average. Recommended.

Our server was excellent. He recommended wine and food we would like and got it right each time. The food was inspired. Watermelon-fennel salad in particular was perfectly balanced and delicious. I had the snapper and my date had the short ribs. Both were bursting with flavor and cooked perfectly. We come to D’oro for special occasions and date night. It’s quiet and cozy and always fun.

We have been to doro several times and have always had outstanding meals. The crispy short ribs are fabulous! I docked it a star for ambiance only because it is rather loud in the restaurant

Everything was great the echo or noise made a little hard to hear each other. We were a table for two.
