    Happy hour +, Not busy but service exceptionally slow to ask for drinks and order. After simpile order, kitchen did not respond for over 1/2 hr. What would happen when many diners is un-imaginable. Billing slow; no receipt offered; 20% tip as min. suggested; added fee for credit card.

    Dorothy's was very busy during our visit. Inside was pretty loud so we opted to sit outside, which was lovely. We ordered the kushiyaki marinated steak (okay, but I wouldn't order it again), the roasted oysters (delicious, recommend), and the fire roasted fish (delicious, recommend if you like spice). I opted for the Follow the Yellow Brick Road cocktail and was pleased with my customized beverage. I gave Dorothy's four stars rather than five because our server kinda forgot about us once we were the only table outside. But the server was otherwise delightful. Great place for date night or dinner with friends.

    Fun evening with friends. Very enjoyable surroundings, starters and small plates excellent. Might of picked something too spicy for main course. Would definitely go back again.

    Cocktails were a little over the top. Ordered a Tito's dirty martini and the bartender suggested another type of vodka. It was not good, not dirty and served in a tiny (not traditional) martini glass. Maybe just keep a simple traditional cocktail, traditional and simple? The food tasted wonderful to me. This is a date spot or girls night out place. We were 4 golfers looking for a good drink and dinner. Very pretty decor.

    We enjoyed a happy hour drink and (raw) brussel sprout salad on the patio and a very nice indoor dinner. Both pork dishes were delicious though quite different - our server was knowledgeable in guiding us. The bread pudding with creamy ice cream should not be missed!
