The food was very good. All local, in season, and well-prepared. Note: it is a very small place, and when full, it is very loud. Great lively atmosphere. It has good energy, but you have to speak up to be heard if it's a peak dining time.

They were out of many menu items, and did not have anything else that interested me on the menu. The shoestring fries came highly recommended and were more trouble to eat than anything else.

Food was dry, the staff was rude. I waited over 45 minutes for my families dinner. I do not recommend this establishment what so ever.

Always a treat eating here. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly. They locally source the food as much as possible. Excellent beer and wine list. Highly recommended.

Was looking for a solid meal after a day of wine tasting and stumbled upon the Red Dove. I had the filet & my husband had the pork. Both were very well prepared. We were looking for local wine as well and they had a decent selection. Our server was very polite and friendly. She did an excellent job and... More

Exceptional service, well-curated locavore menu and excellent food. We went once for drinks and returned for dinner. Terrific experience over all.

We dined at The Red Dove on a Tuesday evening. When we arrived, the restaurant was not too busy, and we were seated right away. It seemed like most of the patrons were locals. The service started out very strong, and we were very pleased with our appetizers and entrees. A true standout were the polenta fries accompanying our steak... More
