Doc's is new to the South Downtown Orlando area, and a welcome addition!
Food - Amazing! Our table had the a tomato basil soup and some chilly, both very good. I had the chicken fettuccine alfredo with sun-dried tomatoes, it was extra creamy, I highly recommend. The rest of table had a salmon, he said it was fantastic, and the veggie flatbread, which I tried and was delicious. For dessert we shared the creme brulee and key lime pie (there were several chocolate choices as well, but we aren't really chocolate people). Both deserts were heaven. Food size was good, I had leftovers for lunch the next day.
Price - Dinners range between $8-$15 per plate. It is pretty equivalent to any chain restaurant price wise, but the food is much better, and it is locally owned.
Decor - The walls and decoration are nice, and it is a huge seating area, which is nice. I thought it would be a really good layout for a large party. The kitchen is open and you can hear the staff calling orders. It is neat to watch, but if you want something quieter, I'd stay away from the kitchen. There are several TVs around, which would be great for viewing any game, but a little too much going on if you aren't there to watch something. I'm looking forward to football season, I know where my new home will be! There is also outside seating for those warm Florida evenings.
Alcohol - The wine selection is pretty good and the bar looked fully stocked.
Service - So-so. The server was pleasant, but slow. We weren't in a rush, so we didn't have a problem with it.
Parking - If you don't know where to park, this can be very tricky. There is plenty of free parking in the parking garage behind the restaurant. However, you have to turn on Fernwood St, so if you are heading north on Orange Ave, by the time you see the restaurant you have passed the turn. They also don't advertise that you can get a free parking token if you spend $5, you just need to ask the server for a token (our server didn't offer).
Overall, the food was excellent, the atmosphere was nice, and we had a very enjoyable time. We will be back!
