Dolce Restaurant - Danbury
My family and I enjoyed a fantastic meal and experienced excellent service. We will continue to frequent this restaurant.
Great place, great food, great drinks. Everything we ordered was delicious. Pleasant atmosphere. I'm giving it 4 stars however because I feel like we were rushed. Every few minutes we were asked if we were done even as I was holding a fork in my hand while I was eating. I felt that if I put it down or walk away from the table my plate would be gone. Didn't like that. Otherwise very nice and would definitely recommend it. Hold on to your plates though!
I went here for the first time with some friends on Friday night and we can’t stop talking about how much we enjoyed our experience. They were busy but our server was very attentive, and we had one the best meals in a long time. Highly recommend!
First they canceled my reservation even though I called and told them we would be late. Then they never provided a wine menu. The veal was tough and not pounded. The service was scattered.
Quality ingredients well prepared. Attentive service.
Great food and attentive staff in a friendly atmosphere.
This is one of our favorites. The staff is always wonderful. The food is delicious. Ample parking. Nice ambiance, not too noisy. You can carry on a conversation. They have three different rooms, the bar area, dining room and enclosed patio. My favorite is the scallops and shrimp over risotto.
Had a large party of 14 for a business meal. Servers were very attentive and the food was great.
The best restaurant in Danbury in my opinion. Service was top-notch, food prepared perfectly.
Love this restaurant, the staff is so nice, they are always pleasant and helpful. Nice decor, good parking, good menu. I especially like their seafood dishes and salads.
The food was quite good...however...Dolce promotes itself as a wine bar...they have a large number of wines by the glass..however...the wine list is weak....at best....
I must preface this by stating that I normally do not write reviews, but we decided to try Dolce for a birthday celebration after reading some favorable reviews. The service was nothing short of excellent from the time we walked in. We shared fried Calamari and fried Mozzarella stick appetizers, both were very good. I had the Fettuccine Dolce as a main dish. My only preference would have been slightly less sauce on the pasta as it was very rich and creamy. Everyone else in our party enjoyed their main dishes as well. For desert, we shared the molten lava cake, which also quite good. Overall, I it would say that it was an excellent dining experience!
Stopped in early for dinner. The service was spectacular. Great menu with nice selection of fish, meat and pasta. Had the fried artichoke hearts which were great (recommend splitting). Also had beautifully cooked Branzino with Quinoa and perfectly cooked al dente vegetables (brussel sprouts, carrots). My wife had delicious mushroom pasta dish. Love the decor! Highly recommended.
Staff was absolutely amazing . Food was phenomenal.
Everything was excellent, the service was kind and fast, the food was perfectly done and the ambiance was everything we expected. Would highly recommend this place!
I really enjoy the food at Dolce.
For this visit I was however disappointed as my meal was not prepared as expected. The staff did try to make it right but it was still disappointing. Will make a mental note not to order that entree in the future but will visit again.
I've always given great reviews for Dolce..This time we just ordered two pizza's and drinks..The pizza was average, nothing to write home about. A little skimpy on the cheese and just average. It was a bit disappointing . Pizza's are not cheap, please throw some cheese on it..Drunk couple making a lot of noise never helps either. Obviously not Dolce's fault..Not a great experience this time out..
My husband and I were looking for a new place to try in Danbury on a Friday night. We decided to try Dolce. The service was fantastic. They were very attentive. The food was delicious and a good value. Everything was cooked to perfection. We will be coming back again.
Good food, good service great neighborhood restaurant
We went to Dolce for my daughter’s graduation celebration. We were over an hour late due to traffic leaving the ceremony but they held our reservation with no issues and greeted us with smiles and a quick round of much needed cocktails! The food was amazing - we’ve been there before and have always had great meals! I highly recommend this restaurant!!
Great food, flare and atmosphere. We enjoyed our meals and chatted the night away until well past closing time. The owner was so friendly and treated us to a drink and invited us to stay as long as we liked. So grateful.
Young lady that greeted us and took care of our order was very professional and courteous !
Excellent service from start to finish !
Excellent food, service and environment..Every time..
We took our parents there for their 57th anniversary..Saturday..We had a great time and everything was perfect..Dolce never seems to miss..
Despite having a reservation they had us sit at a high top in the bar when there were plenty of tables available. When asked to change they would not accommodate. Those tables were open our entire meal. Food was ok but way overpriced. Wait staff was good. Will not go back due to host’s service and attitude.
Average food at best. A bit pricey for overall quality. Wait staff very attentive
This was a Sunday night and our first visit to Dolce. It will not be our last! Our waitperson was incredibly polite, friendly and courteous...an unexpected experience! We enjoyed the calamari as an appetizer. Crispy and light batter...nicely prepared. I had a beautifully plated beet salad with very tasty rare hanger steak. Large slices of very fresh beets and fresh arugula. My partner had Mahi-Mahi with a lovely lobster sauce on a bed of al dente brussel sprouts. And of course, there is always room for dessert. We shared a deliciously prepared flan with burnt caramel sauce, excellent. I also enjoyed a cappuccino with a substantial amount of light foam. A wonderful date night!
Food was excellent!
Let's start with the very positive: the food was delicious. From the chicken parmigiana, to the shrimp scampi, to the chicken scarperiello. Bread and dips for bread were both interesting and tasty. The young waitress started off strong and attended to us fairly quickly upon arrival. However as the meal (or the wait for the meal went on) it seemed like the waitress was interested in persuading us to order another bottle of wine, while we waited over 30 minutes for our main dish to arrive. She did not offer us more bread, nor did she reassure us if and when the meal might be coming. I had to ask her, and her answer was less than convincing. Perhaps she was new and maybe after a few weeks or months on the job she will learn to be more attentive to diners. In the meantime, Dolce would do well to consider better training. Finally, we made a reservation through OpenTable, and yet when we arrived there, it was as if they hadn't received it. Well when they don't check, it IS as if they haven't received it. Fortunately they were able to seat us after about 7 minutes even though, originally it did not seem like they were going to honor our online/OpenTable reservation.
The overall experience was good however it seemed like they had closed off sections for an event so it was louder than normal and a bit more chaotic. I've had great food there but I personally thought the shrimp scampi was very plain for my taste. Someone else in my group had the steak and said it was excellent.
Made Open Table reservation around 9:30A for 5:30p the same day. Received confirmation from Open Table
When we arrived on time restaurant had no record of the reservation, but accommodated my rather large business dinner party.
The manager was very concerned and gracious. He and I reviewed my confirmation and it not showing up on his end. He stated they review this continuously during the day.
Approximately 15 minutes later the reservation appeared in his queue.
This is concerning to both me and the restaurant.
Over all our visit was good. The food was good and presented nicely. All the wait staff were attentive and friendly. The rating would of been better had it not been for the over hour and fifteen minutes to one hour thirty minute wait for our entrees to be served, the 4 appetizers we ordered came in less than 10minutes. The waitstaff explained that the kitchen was backlogged with orders and gave us a round of drinks on the house.
From the moment we entered, the experience was awesome!
Good food, nice ambience, and very pleasant staff.
Love this place! Food is constantly delicious. Great ambiance. Friendly accommodating staff. Can't wait to go back.
Sat in the enclosed outside area and it was chilly and ambience wasn’t great. Service/waitstaff great but it took 40 minutes to get our salads. Waiter did apologize 30 minutes in that the kitchen was backed up
No one was able to eat entire meal due flavors just being off for most: parpadelle was gummy and meat ragu chewy ... chicken scarp. Was inedible.
The food was delish but 2 hours from the time we sat and we got out dinner meal I thought was a bit much
As always, everything was first rate, from start to finish. The waitstaff are consistently warm, friendly, knowledgeable and cheerful. Tonight was no exception. And our meals were so wonderful, we had to stop ourselves from licking our plates! My seafood paella was, without exaggeration, the best I have ever tasted. Bravo!
