We have had three wonderful experiences with exceptional food. This time service was slow, then slower. Other customers were seated after us and finished their desserts before we were served our entrees. After our complaint of tardiness we received free desserts that we didn't order or want. Food is so good we will try again.

The food was really good - we did brunch. French toast and a waffle. The OJ was fresh squeezed and delicious. They were very obvious about the way they treated apparently-wealthy patrons much better than “average” patrons. But even for the average, the staff was nice and friendly.

The Dock is a very special restaurant tucked away on a side street. Walk inside and be welcomed with a warm smile and taken to your table with an inviting view. The service is exceptional and the food divine.

Great little spot located in the harbor. The dining area opens in the back to the harbor providing an intimate feel while still being open and airy. Nice wine list. Food was great. The are adding liquor soon which was the only missing piece. If you are looking for a good date night, this should be on your list.

The Dock has such a refreshingly wonderful ambiance with some of the best food I’ve ever tasted. An amazing selection of wine and a hidden secret on the bay. If you have yet to dine here you do not know what you’re missing. You will not be disappointed. The staff and service is fantastic.

What a special jewel box treasure of a restaurant. Tucked in along the water we were lucky enough to arrive by boat and parked at their dock. From the moment entering we were greeted with warm and exceptional service. The food was amazing. The short ribs are not to be missed and their soups are stellar! Make sure you ask your wine to be decanted in their fabulous collection of decanters! Makes your special occasion even more special or will elevate your ordinary experience to extraordinary! Absolutely love this venue will enjoying again soon!

Nice small restaurant on the bay overlooking the water and Lido across the bay. Food excellently prepared with good presentation. Parking can be challenging at times but that is true of most restaurants on the peninsula. Server very nice and greeted us right away. Seated at a table with good dockside view. There is a small dock area in front if arriving by boat. Overall, no complaints, good experience and will be back.

The food was fabulous and our waiter was very attentive. The lighting on our side of the restaurant was down, so it was difficult to really appreciate the presentation of the food. The noise level was really high, so we found it hard to converse. Despite these minor annoyances, I would highly recommend The Dock for the food and the service. Eric rocked!!

First time at this wonderful restaurant
Cant believe I never knew about this cute nautical
establishment.. We were greeted by Tiffany who was as outstanding as you can get.
Friendly and knowledgeable.
Kathy had the salad and I had the Burrata with peach. Both were delicious.
For dinner Kathy had the scallops with risotto which was tremendous.
Even better was the special Halibit with asparagus and mashed potatoes
A truly wonderful night.
They sent over a little desert finisher which was very good.

Will surely be back next year.

We had not been to The Dock in 15 years so we decided to try it again. It was a delight! The food was amazing, the ambiance was relaxing and the service was very good. The only negatives were the hostess left us at the front desk for an inordinately long time with no explanation for her disappearance and the cost of the bottles of wine. One bottle of the same wine was $70 more than it was at another local restaurant the evening before. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our evening and will be back sooner than another 15 years!

Out friends were joining us from Dana Point and had to park at the Cannery...they were late. The wait staff was very forgiving!!
We love the Dock!
Do go a little early...sometimes parking is a little walk.

Incredible service and beautifully prepared food. We had the grilled romaine salad and the perfect halibut entree. Only two cautions. They serve only beer and wine which is surprising at this price point. Although the wine list is extensive it is high end and not a lot of choice by the glass although our very professional and accommodating waitress offered samples to taste. And note it can get chilly on the water and the whole water side is open so you may want to bring a wrap. Other than that A++
