We went for dinner on our last night in town on Friday 10/3/14 after viewing other reviews on Tripadvisor. The moment we walked in we were greeted by the hostess who was very personable and took our table preference. Our waiter Mike was also very personable and informative, he had full knowledge of the menu and was able to make... More

Wife and I visited Dove III for a late lunch and were fortunate to have a nice window table immediately available. Very nice and clean dining room with crisp white table clothes and a server on the spot to take orders for wine or bloody marys. Warm fresh bread served quickly along with our drinks. I ordered the chicken picatta... More

Was spoiled by the wonderful food and service when the Dove was on beachside. Don't know what happened when they re-opened in downtown Melbourne. I know other people that just love it but my last experience was probably just that, my last experience. Went about 6 months ago and had a bad experience, the main plus was that they still... More

After spending a day looking at houses we decided to eat out and both me and my girlfriend fancied some good Italian food. We'd tried a chain restaurant beforehand and wasn't too impressed so we decided to treat ourselves and go out to eat in a fancy restaurant. The Dove seemed to fit that description perfectly and boy were we... More

My family had many excellent meals at the original Dove beach-side before we moved away 14 years ago. We were more than thrilled when we discovered it had reopened with the original owners in Melbourne. We traveled two hours yesterday to take our daughter and son-in-law back to the Dove and it is just as delicious as our memories. First... More

Plain and simple, "The man can cook!" I would walk across hot coal to eat his food. Nothing else really needs to be said.

lunch was wonderful to say the least. A true gem. Italian food at its best. Vacationing in Italy last year enabled me to critique the menu fairly. It was true Italian. I felt we were dining in Rome again. I must say this will be one of our favorite places in Brevard County, a place we will bring visitors. We... More

Having just moved to Florida from CT in December we are always looking to find great new restaurants. My hairdresser had mentioned the Dove in Melbourne was excellent and that I needed to try it out. Unfortunately they are only open for lunch during the week. My sister and I decided to give it a try since we were in... More

The Dove III is one of my favorite places to eat. It is hidden in old downtown Melbourne. The restaurant is family owned which is part of what appeals to me. The food is excellent....my favorite is the beef au puave. The service is wonderful....my favorite is Jeffrey. Try them out....you won't be sorry.
