We had reservations for 4 at lunchtime and were seated promptly. After that everything else was a bit slow for my taste. We ordered the Cod on the lunch special and it was prepared well and flavorful. However after ordering it took quite a while for the food to arrive. Nice atmosphere, a bit loud.

We were sent here from the staff at 70 Park West and got exactly what we were looking for- great food and great service. Hanz was our bartender and his service was excellent and his food recommendations excellent . We had Red Spider Maki, calamari, and mussels. All prepared to perfection. We highly recommend this place if you're in the... More

Visited for the first time in a couple years. We were able to walk in and be seated even though it was at the peak of lunch time. Fresh daily seafood selections, and a page of standard meals give plenty to choose. It is certainly an "energetic" experience, some would call it loud. More than a table of four would... More

Great buzz, great menu and service and prices are not too bad by Manhattan standards. Service was friendly and professional with lots of good advice on menu choices and options. We will visit again.

And I visit again! This time it was for dinner with the boss. Our reservation made for quick seating. It was a bit loud but we did come in at the end of happy hour so I expected that. It soon quieted down after the happy hour crowd cleared. For dinner, we both had one of the evenings specials -... More

I always look forward to eating at Dock's when I am in the City. They have a luncheon special if you sit at the bar: a drink, choice of soup and entree for $17-$22. It is hard to decide between the three selections for each and I have never been disappointed. There's a nice little bread basket served with the... More

My shrimp was dried out, the rice was cold and the portion of coleslaw amounted to a few tablespoons. Service was rushed,. A very expensive meal and very disappointing. My daughter's fish was presented in minuscule bits hidden in a salad.

Amazing NYC dining experience! In town on a business trip. Our group had a reservation here, and we couldn't have had a better experience. The food, service, and atmosphere were exceptional! If you like seafood, this place is a must! We had calamari, shrimp, and oysters! Tasty! I had the red snapper over couscous with cucumber sauce that was splendid!... More
