Great service

I found the food very reasonable as each meal comes with appetizer, soup, dessert, and beverage. We where 4 couples and all our food came out at the same time and they where constantly filling our water glasses. While they only do one check per table the waitress separated the amounts by each... read more

This place is my favorite to go for dinner! You pick a dinner plate and you get an appetizer, soup, coffee, and dessert included. The escargot is delicious so i definitely recommend that as your appetizer and I've tried almost everything on the menu and haven't found anything i thought was bad. The staff is always so polite and attentive... More

Although the menu is limited they prepare a good meal, especially for the price! Portions are ample, if not large! Meals come with soup, salad, coffee and desert.

Best four course for your buck. Your order your main dish and you get a choice of a appetizer &soup main dish dessert & coffee. You can bring your byob wine for a 12.00 fee. Staff was very attending . Just remember it a very old clientele but all it worth the young to visit . Will return

We had a table for eight to celebrate my wife's birthday and everyone was pleased with the service and food at Chef Dooleys. We enjoyed the high quality of the food and the excellent value for a four course dinner (less than $25 per person for most choices.) While this restaurant can be very busy, the service was just fine... More

We found Chef Dooley by accident. It was very crowded for dinner and I was told by the hostess that generally you need to make reservations. However, they had a table for 2 that was empty and we were seated after waiting nearly 10 minutes for it to be cleared and reset. As others have said, the deal here is... More

We are from the UK and were staying in Florida fir three months. It was my birthday on 19th December and two neighbours if ours suggested we went here for my birthday. The food was excellent and the choice and prices were some of the best we have had in Florida. Very understated from the outside but you enter and... More

Don't call and make a reservation on answer machine, they don't call you back as asked to confirm, had to call them back to confirm, food was rushed as they were busy, and took dishes away while we ate

Chef Dooley on military trail in Deerfield has outstanding Italian dishes. 4 course dinners include soup and salad, entree, dessert and coffee or tea. Very reasonable with an average dinner price of $20 per person. Excellent service with attentive waiters. Love the entire experience.
