We went to Dock's at the recommendation of our hotel staff. It is a nice atmosphere and beautiful restaurant. We had a reservation. We were given a lovely table and our order was taken by a manager. Things went downhill fast from there. We received our salad, which was missing some of the promised ingredients, but no one came by... More

I had not been here in a number of years. A friend lives nearby and suggested that we go there for dinner. There were three of us for dinner. We made a reservation which I highly suggest since this is a very popular restaurant. Most people come dressed up or at least in business casual although two in my party... More

If you like fish and seafood, Docks is a good place, large selection of seafood platters, sushis /sashimis and tasty fish as main course. If you prefer meat, the steaks are very good too! Service is very good, attentive and friendly, and waiters were very helpful with our kids' requirements. It's quite a big place, and we managed to get... More

Been to Docks now a few times and the food has always been excellent. This time I went for the Dover Sole, which I love and am desperate to find in most restaurants. The good news was they had the sole and it was delicious. The bad news was it was over $50, about $20 more than I pay in... More

The staff was dressed formally ....so much so that I thought I was under dressed . But all was well. The waiter was a bit shy for some reason [maybe new] but the rest of the staff was attentive to everything. My water glass was never empty. That's pretty rare these days as most of the time you have to... More

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
