You shouldn't go here for a rushed meal. This is a place to go for a dining experience, you will be treated with the little extras of a posh restaurant. They made us feel like our meal was specifically prepared for us and that we could stay as long as we wanted. My wife had the shrimp fradiovlo which she... More

Our friends from Melbourne Beach took us to the Dove for dinner on our way to the King Center. We were very pleased with everything about the experience. The drinks were surprisingly full, the unexpected soup was delicious, and my salad was one of the best I have ever had. It was a shrimp and avocado appetizer special. The main... More

Coming in on a weeknight during tourist season without a reservation, we didn't know what our prospects for a table would be. However, we were pleased to receive a nice table for two. Excellent service, quality food, with a few extras. Reasonably priced. If there was any "complaint," it was that the entrees were too LARGE. Fortunately, we located a... More

Start to finish an excellent meal. Easily among the best restaurants Melbourne has to offer. Our waiter was attentive without being obtrusive, a delicate balance. Everything was delicious. Flounder francaise was the nights special and did not disappoint. Three large fillets lightly egg battered and sautéed to perfection served with rice and broccoli. Bone in ribeye was the evenings second... More

What a treat it was to dine at The Dove III. We enjoyed some wine, along with a bottle of San Pellegrino. The salad was fresh, not refrigerated (ich) with a light tasty dressing. The special veal dish was delicious and the waiter easily substituted rizzoto for the pasta that came with it. My husband enjoyed the calamari with pasta... More

4 of us arrived at Dove's before 6:30 anticipating we had enough time for dinner before our 8 p.m. theater time at the Heneger Theater. We waited way too long for our server to take our drink order and way too long for him to return to take our meal order. At 7:25, our dinner arrived and we had to... More
