The key to Trip Advisor reviews is to express a opinion - an opinion based on personal tastes and preferences. Critical reviews are often interpreted by the readers as a statement of fact when it is actually an expression of one's honest feelings and impressions. So with that said - while there was nothing explicitly wrong with Dolce I just didn't like it. Trendy it is not: it's a bar with few lounge type seats. The drinks did not impress. The food was plain and nothing special (we decided against ordering more dishes and went to another restaurant afterwards). Hopefully, Dolce will get better in the future, it's in a good spot in a upcoming neighborhood.
