This was our second visit to The Dove III and the food was wonderful. We had a family dinner and enjoyed appetizers, soup, entres and dessert. I could not ask for more--everything was delicious and coupled with attentive service made for an enjoyable evening.

My business partner & I enjoy The Dove and went there last week for a dual birthday celebration. We had not made reservations and at 12:30 on a Wednesday, they were completely full. We had a short wait and then were seated. Waiter appeared immediately and took out drink order but did not make us feel rushed to order lunch.... More

Quality is outstanding and quantity will... More

This restaurant got such great reviews, I really wanted to have a superior experience, but my entree fell short. We were 3 ladies at lunch. The eggplant parmesan and salad were outstanding, but my veal parm fell a bit short. Henry's service was excellent and the ambience of the place and location were great. I will try it again on...

Didn't start well, whoever took our reservation when I had called earlier in the week, never made sure it got into the reservation book so we had to wait a bit when we arrived. They don't acknowledge an anniversary more than a quick "happy anniversary* however, the food and service { thanks Ryan } were very good. My wife even... More

The Dove III is such the perfect spot to host special dinners with family and friends. Every detail is perfectly done. Our table was ready and our server, Yanni, was just the most attentive person to take care of us. The different dinners ordered included mussels, shrimp scampi, chicken parmigiano, shrimp Diablo, and others. Everyone raved that their dinners were... More
