    Valet parking was ready to go when we arrived. Shown right in to our table even though we were 15 minutes early on a show night. Smoked Old Fashioned and Raul cocktails were top notch. Bacon wrapped scallops and onion soup were sublime. Extremely generous swordfish portion; perfectly prepared and well-balanced by the Brussel sprouts fried in duck fat (amazing on their own…). Beer brazed rabbit was a great find on this menu. Very intimate but a tad noisy. Having servers who could be a bit more descriptive than “it’s really good” and menus that aren’t laminated would add a lot to the ambiance. Overall great experience; definitely recommend for a meal before or after a show at Dr Phillips.

    Server offered extra bread but didn’t mention it would be a charge. Bread came 20 mins later for a dip that he already removed from the table. Steak and eggs really dry. Apps were good though.

    Wanted to try someplace new and DoveCote sounded like a great place to celebrate our anniversary. Tables are way, way too close together. Uncomfortably close. Door going to outside seating is absolutely filthy. Dirtier than a door at a local car repair shop. These were our first two impressions. Salad was ok. Onion soup was very tasty. My entree was Coq Au Vin which should be standard fare for any French inspired restaurant. It was ok but I would have never quested it was Coq Au Vin. Tiffany was our server and she was pleasant but over-seated. One and done for us. Should have driven a little further and gone to Le Coq Au Vin. Lesson learned.

    Server was very friendly. I had a basic eggs bacon and potatoes. The food came out room temperature eggs were overcooked along with everything else. My son ordered the Mari Gras pancakes they were thin overcooked with no flavor. The blueberry mojito tasted like cough syrup. Overly priced and under satisfied.

    I really liked the aesthetic. It was a wonderful combo of antique and modern with a fairly quiet dining area. The food was a little heavy in the salt but my filet was cooked to perfection, I barely needed a knife. The server was very well spoken and kind. Overall a great experience!

    Overall, I enjoyed eating at the restaurant it is pretty inside only thing it seems like the waiter is pretty preoccupied elsewhere, we were missing certain utensils, and dinnerware. We ask for some additional condiments and waiter, forgot about it. Our cocktail spilled on us and sauces were spilled on us. Everyone was very kind and I really did appreciate that.

    Christmas Eve dinner. We were very disappointed. We had an early reservation. Plenty of tables. They sat us at a table by the door during an extremely cold night. Server was hard to understand and not very helpful answering the questions we had about the menu. Coffee service was not available to accompany our dessert. They blamed it on the vendor’s employee leaving early. Inexcusable for a fine dining restaurant not to have a plan B in place to offer patrons coffee with dessert.

    I booked this reservation on open table at 6:05 pm same day. Open table shows availabilities at 6:15 and every 15 minutes after. Plenty of availability! I reserve 6:15 and get there at 6:15 to find the place is packed and they’re turning people away. Host tells me the tables are full with reservations. I tell him that I also have a reservation. He tells me that they reserved earlier. Huh?? Bottom line, Dovecote, is turn off open table reservation if you don’t have any room.

    The server told us that it was his second table that he had served, we were patient but there’s a limit when you’re paying that much for your food. The management could’ve done better with assisting the server with the tables. Our orders kept getting wrong things kept getting delivered to our table that wasn’t ours… There was a bunch of different things that was making it a frustrating experience. We were sat next to the kitchen and you could tell that the chef was very experienced and passionate about the work that was getting put out.

    Setting was nice, clean, appealing. Server was nice, but forgot to tell us there were specials, and sides were substituted at the full price of a side (no mention at time of ordering). Bill for two people with one glass of wine each was over $200. Overall was good, but could have had the potential to be so much more.

    Quality of food and service has declined since I have been in a few years. Food was basic but the salmon was cooked perfectly —— the rest of the food did not come out of the kitchen as described on menu. Atmosphere is really inviting but space was quite empty for a Friday night

    We went for Thanksgiving dinner and paid $75 a plate. They ran out of pumpkin pie and apple pie. They charged for a mistake in wine order and took it away. If they were going to charge for it, they should have let us know and not taken it away. Food was okay but actually had Thanksgiving dinner last year at Disney Springs and was cheaper and a whole lot better.

    Normally I would not want to write a bad review however, the disappointment that I felt last night was overwhelming. My husband and I had booked Thanksgiving dinner there which Included a Thanksgiving buffet, with a dessert bar, and a seafood bar. Nothing on any of the bars seemed appetizing whatsoever, the food had been sitting out with the heat lamps too high as everything was browned, or looking leathery. When I requested turkey at the carving station I asked what were the differences between the cranberry sauces, to which the chef replied one is one that they made it house, and the other comes from the can. The food was mediocre at best, our service matched the quality of food. There is no dress code so people were in ripped jeans along with flip-flops, it was hardly the Thanksgiving experience that it was advertised to be. Unfortunately we will not be going back to this restaurant again in the future, we have been in the past and had had enjoyable food there something must’ve changed over time.

    Been dining here since it opened and always had a very good meal with excellent service. For Thanksgiving management decided to offer a buffet dinner for $75 pp. The quality of the turkey, ham and especially the prime rib they presented were very disappointing. Since 3 in our party were vegetarians, they pre-ordered salmon. All noted that it was the worst preparation of that meal they ever had anywhere. In addition, the buffet idea another mistake as the restaurant ran out of plate and had to quickly wash and dry them resulting in hot dishes to use when you placed salad and fruit items that were chilled. Also, diners found items not being replaced quickly enough after a tray was emptied by diners who had to stand in line for several minutes waiting for new portions to be presented. And no tables had salt or pepper. All in all, for a pricetag of over $110 pp after a glass of wine, coffee, tax & it was a horrible experience. On the plus side, the wait staff worked hard to ensure that guests were enjoying themselves and were extremely friendly. Hopefully, management learned a bit and will not do this again next year or for Xmas or Easter dinners.

    We went on Thanksgiving Day for their Holiday "Upscale" Buffet. I guess I had higher expectations, because the food offered didn't justify the $75.00 menu price per person. It was adequate enough, I was just expecting something much more elaborate. I was disappointed that they didn't have stuffing/dressing to go along with the minimal turkey portions you were served. The other sides were okay. The dessert offerings were underwhelming. It looked like they had bought inexpensive grocery store pies in disposable aluminum pie pans and they were served with something that tasted like "Cool Whip". The service was adequate enough, we did have to wait a little too long for drink refills. I guess that's the case when you go to a "buffet". The most outrageous and shocking surprise arrived near the end of the meal. The check arrived quite early in the meal, we were still eating and the server said "Here's your check, but stay as long as you like." He came back shortly to see if I had put my card in the folder and then said "I don't want to rush you, take your time " We obviously felt rushed at that point. When I opened the check, I was shocked to see that they had added a 30% gratuity automatically to the meal total for a party of two! I always leave a gratuity, even for subpar service, but nowhere was it mentioned that the gratuity would be already added. I would have left a adequate tip, but that choice was taken away from me. I know they probably did that for the server's benefit, because they had to work on the holiday, but it was a "Buffet", you essentially were serving yourself, except for the drinks, that didn't arrive in a timely fashion. We left feeling ambivalent about the experience. We probably won't ever go back to the restaurant. We just wanted a nice Thanksgiving dinner and ended up feeling robbed and swindled afterwards.
