Place look very modern yet still classic! Service was a little slow, as it seems they were a bit understaffed. Food was good, ingredients were well selected and greatly combined, though I felt The spicing was not were it could be. Over all a pleasant place!

The crab cake was a bit dry. Seemed like it’s been sitting in the fridge too long.

We went with a group of friends and had a fantastic time. The food was as good as always and there were plenty of items on the menu for everyone's taste. On Thursday night they have live music which made the atmosphere even better! Must add to your list of go-to restaurants.

LOVE THIS NEW RESTAURANT! It had everything. We first enjoyed the Happy Hour and then met friends there for dinner. We all chose something different as an entree and each thoroughly loved each selection. Tasty, creative, healthy, fresh and good sized portions too. The ambience was nice and very clean. Also, for dog lovers they offer outside seating with your pets. I recommend it for any occasion. Kudos to the Chef :-)

Dorona is a modern restaurant with a basic decor but tables have space between them. We had a great server who knew the food and had great recommendations. The noise level was low and the tables well separated. Food was excellent. Great octopus and beef tartar. The brussel sprout salad lacked some flavor but the swordfish and paella was great. The carrot cake was delectable.

Great apps, steaks lacked quality, swordfish was excellent. Fun place with great location. Menu is unique and specials seemed over priced for the quality.

I was disappointed with my first visit. My friend and I both ordered table-side Caesar salads with shrimp. They were not prepared at our table nor did the have more than three shrimp a piece. We were never offered bread. When the bill came the description did not match what we had ordered and the price seemed wrong. We questioned the waitress and she brought it back to be looked at, returning with the same. Then she went back again bringing a new bill with the right description at the same price. My friend asked for the general manager who came out explaining that because of the shrimp on top they don’t do it table side. We said that had not been explained when we ordered the meal. She gave us a card asking us to contact her next time so we can get it done correctly. I have also sent an email to the restaurant regarding this. I have not received a response yet.

This was our third visit for dinner and it honestly keeps getting better. Great food and drinks! I was nervous when I first saw the steak menu because I don't eat red meat but there are plenty of really wonderful dishes to choose from!

We were seated at a high top table, in the bar area, but the whole room is kind of in the bar area. Our server, Niko, was very friendly, very attentive, very knowledgeable. The food was amazing. It is on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for. His charred octopus was outstanding. My fennel and apple salad was fresh and flavorful. My osso buco ravioli were heavenly and his paella was spectacular. We will return, but it’s not a ‘once a week’ place—more like a ‘once a month or so’ place, based on cost per visit. Don’t hesitate to dine here.

Been to Dorona twice; once lunch, once dinner. Both times excellent. Steak selection is great, and seared to perfection. On par with the other local top-level steakhouses, right up there with JP's and CG. Generously poured cocktails and nice wine list.

Appetizers and sides are notable too -- try the wagyu-stuffed olives, just awesome (ask if you don't see them on the menu, seems like they're only on the lunch/bar menu). Get Brussels sprouts too.

At dinner, our server Jasmine was fantastic. Very helpful, engaging, professional, and fun at the same time, without constant interruption. Hard worker. Lunch server was great too. There have been some reviews critical of service -- don't be deterred. It seems these may relate to one particular server; she appears to be a bit "overzealous," but our experience was pretty much perfect.

There have also been a couple of comments about the steak. There are probably 20 to choose from, on the separate steak menu. If you pick the leanest or cheapest steak, do not be shocked if you need to chew a bit. But the wagyu and 30-day aged prime are both like butter. All I can say is I have witnessed 8 very happy steak-ordering people. Go & enjoy.

We were in Naples in vacation and happened upon this place as it was close to our hotel. By far, it was the best meal we have had in a very long time. We are going to make sure we eat here each time we visit Naples from now on!

We were very pleased with our meal at Dorona recently. Dined with my husband and my father and we tried a variety of the food - started with a charcuterie plate (delicious fig spread), 1/2 dozen oysters (plump and fresh), followed by the Osso bucco ravioli, baked swordfish dish, strip steak, brussel sprouts side dish and finished the meal off with carrot cake dessert (the caramel sauce and shaved dark chocolate made the dish!), and sorbet. My husband has celiac and they were very accommodating regarding his GF needs - while they couldn't do his favorite french fries (b/c of a single fryer), they were able to sub with fingerling potatoes. They also had delicious gluten free bread which was similar to a french loaf vs. plain GF bread. Service was excellent. Hope this restaurant is here to stay!

This restaurant did not live up to the hype. Yes, we were there on a Sunday night, but outside of the hostess who greeted us, it seemed as if no one wanted to be there. Waitress was more interested in selling than serving; the table side Caesar was uninspired and dressing tasteless. Steak and salmon over cooked. When the manager came by to ask how our experience was, he actually walked away before we could even respond. Definitely will not be back. We wish them luck. They’ll need it.

The experience was delightful, starting with the wait staff right through the meal presentation. Everyone was very helpful from offering suggestions for dining to keeping all facets of our meal flowing smoothly. The roast duck and root vegetables was very tender (cooked medium) and my wife's ziti bolognese was outstanding. We will definitely return.
