Great food, superb service

This is a restaurant with amazing good food, and the service is incredible, but is a little bit pricey compared to others in the city.

Great selection on the menu . My choice was for baked mero fillet , which remained exquisite, juicy and aromatic . Served with a great tasting baked potatoes. The dessert was a delicious fresh quesillo with a tasty pineapple syrup. Enjoy it!!

Highly overrated restaurant. I ordered fish( Mero asado) and they brought me a horrible, obviously unfrozen and microwave thawed filet that I could not take more than a bite of as the taste was "off" to put things politely. I told the waiter to please change my dish for change my dish for something simple - chicken breast with veggies.... More

Don't be intimidated by the waitstaff's formal attire. The food was good and the ambiance was soft and mellow. Food was varied.

I seriously think the reviews on Google are fakes. Fried sea bass was deep fried and tasteless and cost a fortune of $30. I wouldn't eat it even it was free. In NYC, you can get far greater fish and chips for half the price! What a scam! Service was very good however.

In the DR many of us know, it is easy to be disappointed . At Pez Dorado , they are consistent , and the food is high quality . It is not cheap , but we view it as a treat to go there . The waiters are pro waiters that have worked there for as long as 40 years... More

The tradition and the name are not reflected any more in the quality of the food nor in the decor. I really was hoping that they had improved, but not the case. Food maybe average in some cases, need an urgent face lift, service not what used to be and very expensive.

Good city center restaurant. Food was average, service was good and helpful. I had the Ram, which while it may be a local specialty... don't bother. It seemed like a cheap cut of beef that had been cooked for weeks to get it tender. Sort of tasteless, but my client wanted me to try it. Wouldnt have it again. Good... More
