“Nice courtyard”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Nice setting in their courtyard. Service was good.
We ordered one of their daily specials, the baked salmon with herbs, but it didn't seem to be a freshly prepared meal. Best part of our dinner was the dessert, the apple caramel cheesecake.

“Great menu for that special night out or lunch in the courtyard”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Located in the heart of downtown Belleville, entering Dinkel's Courtyard with its fountain and vines was like stepping into the grounds of an Italian villa. A great mini escape, good food, great wine list including local wine. A little pricey but worth it.

“Perfect little gem of a restaurant”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

We have been to Dinkel's many times over the years and have always had a wonderful experience of the food, service, and atmosphere. We were so impressed by this place that we decided to get married here, and we could not have made a better choice. Everything from the planning and organization, to the decor, the food, the service - literally everything - was handled by the staff at Dinkel's with a warm yet professional touch. They accommodated all our requests and then some, and at every stage we were made to feel welcome and special, while no effort was spared to make this event with 70+ people go smoothly. We rented out the whole place for a very reasonable price and even had our ceremony out in the delightful little courtyard by the fountain - the whole occasion was just picture perfect. A special mention for the delicious food - cooking 50 steaks perfectly to order is no mean feat! If you're looking for a place in Belleville to have a party or even just for a romantic dinner for two, try Dinkel's, you will not be disappointed.

“Bad Experience”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

Went to Dinkels for the first time with my wife and two friends and we all had a terrible experience. Two of us ordered medium steaks which came out blue (borderline raw). Steaks were sent back and to our surprise they just ended up reheating the same steaks instead of cooking up another one. The steak came back five minutes later still undercooked. My wife's fetuccini alfredo was pretty much noodles with garlic butter and onions (Linguine's is much better) and our other friend has a pasta which came out looking as if it had stayed on the counter for quite some time. We ended up getting a credit for the steak after arguing with the waiter that we shouldn't be charged for it since it was returned and still wasn't cooked properly.

I know they had a wedding that night but if the kitcken can't keep up because of that they should have closed the dining room for the night, as we will not be returning there. Very disappointing for what I thought was an upscale restaurant, based on the prices.
