What could've been a terrible experience turned out to be a good one. My husband ordered the eggplant Parmesan. It came out over done, soggy and very salty. He could not eat it. I ordered the chicken Francaise. My dish tasted fine. My children enjoyed their meals. When our waiter came to see why my husband was not eating, he... More

I ate at the Dove again. Always consistently good. The eggplant Parmesan the best in town. Have had numerous other dishes and everyone has been great. Carlo is a delight and very versed. Will be back!

Last night my wife and I enjoyed dinner at The Dove III. Every year, while in Florida, we make a point to visit The Dove at least once. The food, wine and service are exceptional. Jeffrey, our waiter, made us feel welcome from the outset. We had an 8:30 reservation, but the service was not rushed. Jeff asked if we'd... More

Had not been here for a while & decided to try it again. The same wonderful food & service. I had the lasagna, & my husband had the chicken parmesan . Both were very, very good with extra large portions. Brought a lot home. Our bill was a little over $20! I would recommend it highly.

Took a group of friends for dinner. The atmosphere is excellent, service was excellent. Staff is polite, and well trained and versed in the menu and offerings. Started off with the sausage roll appetizers...delicious, then a cup of Pasta Fagioli with chopped onions and cheese. For main course I had the fillet with mashed potatoes which was cooked just right... More

The ambiance of this restaurant couldn't be better. A cheery welcome always awaits you and you are escorted to a table, if it's early enough, in one of the choice spots from which to view outside. Our waiter today was excellent as Dove's waiters always are. We opted for a bottle of Sicilian Pinot Grigio that was moderately priced and... More

Dinner here is not just a meal - it is an experience! The chef is a magician and the wait staff the best in the business. Run, don't walk, to eat at this restaurant! There were 6 of us and we had the meal of a lifetime - who would have thought it? Even the complimentary soup Pasta Fagiule was... More

The quality of the food lived up to their reputation. The ambience was dark and noisy. The service was excellent, knowledgeable waiters. But the bill was a shocker. It was so much higher than the menu would have hinted, I assume the 2 glasses of wine, and one beer ( 4 people ) were priced on a whim. Overall it... More

Let me tell you how amazing this restaurant is . . . I did not even stop to take photos. We had amazing Amarone wine that sells for $60 online and only cost $70 in a restaurant. Wow for the wine and wow for the price. Beef carpaccio was a pleasant surprise as was the Shrimp and avocado salad. The... More
