        Not crazy about their new menu. A bit pricy for the quality. Service was very good. Love their brunches more than their weekly menu.

        There were a lot of things that could have gone better. My husband was served raw food, my salad was completely wilted and we did not get so much as a single apology or manager to the table. The server was not very attentive, at some point we sat with no water for quite some time. She took our plates away, did not ask if we needed anything and walked away. It took her 20 minutes to come back around to which I finally grabbed her attention to ask for a check. Overall not great.

        I always enjoy this restaurant. On this visit, though, the bartender didnt show up. The waitstaff did their best but the drinks were inconsistent. The food was delicious but the portions seemed a little skimpier than usual. Our server was lovely though! Overall, we had a very enjoyable time and will definitely go back!

        We were to celebrate Mother’s Day brunch. The team & kitchen was short staffed. They were out of several items we ordered - including Bloody Mary’s. The food was mediocre, at best. The egg whites on my eggs Benedict were undercooked. The chicken sandwich came with the chicken burnt and shriveled up. We had to send it back. Overall the experience and the quality of the food was not up to par with our usual visits. We’ve been patrons since 2017. We even held our wedding event at this venue because we love the food, the service, and the ambiance. Nic, our server was great & did their best to accommodate our needs. This review in no way reflects Nix’s service/ attitude. The manager, Sea, even came and apologized for the experience and good quality. Hopefully this was an off day and the wonderful food & experience returns.

        Went to Dovecote for lunch today. There were two of us and instead of seating us at one of the regular tables (the place was empty) they tucked us into one of the cramped little two seat alcoves in the window (I am 6'3") We ordered sandwiches for our main courses and the ham beignets for an appetizer. I ordered a cafe macciato. They brought me an espresso. What kind of coffee place doesn't know that a macciatio is an espresso topped with a small amount of frothed milk? Our lunch entrees came out very quickly. So quickly in fact that we never received our appetizer. I had the reuben and it was awful. The meat was extremely fatty. My friend liked their fried chicken sandwich and we both liked the fries. We received our check from a manager (I think) who just dropped it and kept walking. When our server came back and picked up the check, he said "I just realized I forgot your appetizer, do you want it to take with you?" WTH, why would we want that? I will not be going back, I will stick with Mark Cavallini's place for my reubens. — at DoveCote Restaurant.

        Reuben was fatty but flavorful, they have really nice sliced rye bread but was three to four times the size of the meat too so ratio of Bread to meat was way off. Wings were good, three wings for 14.00 but it was the connected drum and flats so technically 6 wings.

        The service was not good AT all. Was there for two hours before we even got food. Our server took FOREVER to take orders, bring drinks and even refill water. ( we reminded her multiple times) The food was mediocre, the best thing was the drinks. I see why it was so empty. I won't be back.

        Went for the first time. The look doesn’t match the service or quality. Took twenty minutes to get the drinks we ordered. The staff weren’t keeping track of table orders because more than once waiters came by and tried giving us food we didn’t order. When we did finally get our food it was good but not good enough to justify the 40 minute wait for two entrees. The waitress extremely nice though and the host was very friendly when he greeted me. I just wouldn’t go back because an East Sunday brunch ended up being a 2 hour experience where we spent most of the time waiting on our food. But they were really quick to bring out the check while we were eating as if to hurry us along.

        The food ended up being great, but the service was extremely poor, to say the least. It took forever to be greeted. Then, it took a while to get drinks. Coffee was brought with no cream, although it was ordered with the coffee. Had to ask for it, and by the time we got it…coffee was cold. My bacon/egg/cheese came out with w no bacon…had to ask for it. Drinks were brought out and given to the wrong people and on the wrong checks. We were afraid to ask for anything as it might knock the server off kilter… Honestly, I was quite embarrassed. I brought someone here who came from out of town…thankfully the taste of the food was good. The prices were somewhat high…$9.00 for two biscuits that were sub-standard at best…but I wouldn’t have minded the cost it the rest had been ok. Just not worth the money or the trouble. I guess I should have I known something was up when even checking in was a chore. I most likely won’t be back. :(

        We had a wonderful experience celebrating my adult daughter's birthday. The restaurant was somewhat lively but not too loud. It really was a perfect balance. Our server was fantastic - being very attentive without hounding us. The food was really great, we were really happy we went to DoveCote for my daughter's birthday celebration! We would definitely recommend this restaurant for Sunday brunch!

        I know it isn’t fair to judge a restaurant when you dine on a holiday ( in this case it was Easter Sunday). But there should be at least minimal attention to the following: -We we’re seated in a corner and concealed by a curtain and with very little ability to shift our chairs as the folks behind me had the same issue so we kept bumping into each other -Our server didn’t get to our table to ask for our drink orders until we had already gone up to the buffet for our first course and were eating -I asked for a Cappuccino and it came but I had to ask for sweetener and a teaspoon. - My husband had the lamb but had to ask for a sharper knife to cut it because it was tough and undercooked. -No one came by to remove our first course dishes and we can back to our table with our main course and had to bus our own dirty dishes over to the bar counter. -The pasta entree looked so dry and gloppy so I didn’t bother taking any. -There were 3 different potato dishes. Would have been nice to replace one with a saffron rice dish for example. -Shrimp (peel yourself) Were Excellent. Salad was in need of more fixings -Brunch typically consists of a choice of breakfast and lunch items. I guess they figured that the deviled eggs with bits of bacon met that need. Even some muffins or banana bread would have been nice. -The menu offerings were NOT kid friendly. -The ham was excellent -The dessert bar was fair…fresh fruit for those that don’t eat sweets would have been nice -For the type of food served, drinks were extra and the poor service…I felt that the total cost for two of over $200 dollars with a tip was highway robbery. - I understand we’re stand that restaurants need to make a profit but at least give your customers a little bang for their buck.

        This place used to be great, with great food and awesome wine list. Not the same now. $9 plate of French Fries with ketchup served in a plastic cup, just not representative of fine dining or upscale dining. Sois Vide Duck was tough and lacking flavor. Octopus was cold and flavorless. No options for a Vegan eaters. Wine list not great and some ones overpriced.

        I had a lobster roll. There were two, maybe three bits of lobster in the sandwich. About an hour after dining there, my stomach became severely upset. To top it off, the restaurant erroneously entered my reservation as having been cancelled - likely a failure of the host to check us in properly. Overall, a very poor experience.

        The food and drinks were delicious. We got our appetizers before our cocktails there was no one at the host/hostess stand. Waited a long time to be seated. The bathrooms were terrible. No toliet paper in 2 of the three stalls no soap at main sink and out of paper towels. Also, the sanitary napkin garbage was overflowing.

        We made reservations for 4 ( two adults and two kids, celebrating that they got good grades in school) using the App and we were promptly seated within 10 minutes of arrival. Sofi was our hostess and she was pleasant and professional. As we waited for our table to be ready, we noticed the place to be loud and busy, but not all tables were occupied. It appeared as if they were short staffed. staff ruining around and yelling to each other. At some point the cook was yelling loudly at the hostess that he needed help ( it sounded desperate) . I noticed one of the patrons having a heated exchange with one of the waiters and noted the manager assisting with the tables outside. Once seated, we were given menus and waited for about 35 minutes. No one came to take our order. I tried waving to several waiters but I was ignored. I told the hostesses and she tried to get a waiter but we decided to leave as our kids were hungry. You have to pay for parking. The place had nice European decor and felt trendy and sophisticated. I cannot speak for the food since we didn’t get any but I saw the tables next to ours being served and people appeared to be having a good time. Not sure why we weren’t attended to. I tried calling the place afterwards to speak with the manager but i was told he was too busy. I didn’t get a call back. Parking is convenient and they validate if you consume in the restaurant. Since we didn’t ( no service and no food) we had to pay for our own.

        The ambience was amazing and set the stage for high expectations. The ham and cheese beignets were the best thing we had! Main courses for brunch were very rich and overpriced considering the amount on the plate. Service started very strong and then got worse. No small plates for appetizer, no cream and sugar offered for coffee, etc. May consider returning but probably not for quite a while.

        Was an unnecessarily painfully long ordeal for a reservation that had been made for 3 months. Took an hour to get waters and menus. Was told the server didn’t show but no one checked on us in the meantime. Once we did get a server, he was very helpful and clearly very busy, but it still took another hour to get food and even 45 minutes to get the check once we had asked for it and finished our food. Would not recommend or revisit

        Very nice location and the vibes are there. The food was poorly seasoned, no salt or pepper and it was just very bland. Definitely not worth the prices. Service was good, it was a little busy but no fault of the restaurants. We sat right near the kitchen which is fine but the chef on the food pass kept screaming hands and getting annoyed with the servers.. when they were swapped. I don’t think it was worth the price…..

        Had the delight of dining here several times when Chef Clay Miller opened this spot years ago & every aspect of those meals was flawless. We have gone back twice & both times unfortunately were less than inspiring & the food offerings were truly poorly executed & tasteless. Wont return. It's a shame.

        The food was just ok. The french onion soup was decent but not traditional. My short rib needed salt.

        Service staff was very friendly but clearly inexperienced. Food was not memorable. I have been there pre Covid and it was a memorable experience with service and food.

        We had read several comments complaining about the service at DoveCote and we did experience a little of that. Our main server was very friendly but we only saw her three times during our dining experience. We had to flag someone to come clear our appetizer plates. My husband ordered the Braised Short Ribs and his meal was delicious and abundant, unlike mine which was only two little pieces of duck breast. We ordered the Oreo Surprise for dessert and it was delicious. Overall we give DoveCote a 4 star rating. They need to improve in their service and also portions of certain dishes. But they are worth trying out if you have time and patience.

        Our server did not attend our table effectively. Food was forgotten and we had to ask 3 different people for it. Server forgot condiments that we again had to ask multiple people for and still never got it. Our checks were done completely wrong and then after fixing them it took another 15 minutes for him to cash them out. I was there for my birthday and honestly I was just disappointed.

        We had a wonderful night, good staff, great little seat in the corner, ALL of the food was incredible and the drinks were perfect…I had the steak frites delivered perfectly at medium rare and a good size portion, my wife had the braised short rib and loved it, the potatoes were whipped to an amazing creaminess and the little veggies were quite tasty…we shared a very large and excellent portion of shrimp cocktail…highly recommend!

        Had a large group but restaurant had the table already set up upon arrival and we were sitting immediately. Food was good and service was great!
