    My filet mignonette was burnt and chewy and the fried Brussels sprouts were also overcooked as well.

    Fabulous find! In town for concert and heard this was a great restaurant. It was BEYOND great! Fabulous food - short ribs, steak and risotto were delicious! Cocktails and white chocolate mousse dessert were very special. The cherry on top of our delicious food was Sky our server - what amazing service! Can’t wait to come back here.

    The ambiance and decor is beautiful! The outside area also looked super nice, would be great in the fall once it cools down a little. Overall I’d say our service was pretty good, but I was disappointed in the food. We got the ham & cheese beignets for an appetizer and they were definitely not beignets, I would call them croquettes. They were tasty but misleading. Then I had the pesto feta egg white frittata. It was pretty boring to eat to be honest, not very much flavor, even though pesto and feta are usually some of my favorites. I did enjoy that they served the juice for mimosas on the side so you could decide how sweet you wanted to make your drinks. I probably would return to give it a second chance, but for the price I expected a much different experience.

    First visit to the restaurant. Enjoyed the experience from start to finish. Greeted warmly when we came in. Daniel was our server and he made great suggestions for us. Our table ordered the rib-eye steak w/ confit potatoes, scallop app and a salad. Food was scrumptious and at the end I wanted a coffee to finish with my dessert. However I was told the barista closed down. They have Foxtail as a vendor in the restaurant and he was closing down. The barista reopened just to make my cup of coffee. I was truly impressed that they would go the extra mile after a long day. We will make sure we visit again. Thanks for a great night.

    Terrible brunch visit to DoveCote. Sadly, my friends and I had a terrible experience at Sunday brunch. Our server was not attentive or willing to provide much service to us at all and then actually left and walked out of the restaurant while we were in the middle of our lunch. The coffee cake was dry and uneventful so I would not bother ever ordering it again. The shrimp and grits were good but since our experience was so terrible, I sadly do not even wish to return to enjoy those shrimp and grits again in the future.

    Food was just okay. The service could have been better. We had to send back one of the three drinks as it just missed the mark and for the price we were paying it was not to our satisfaction. It was upsetting that the food came and we had no utensils and had to ask and wait for those to come while to food was getting cold. We wanted to order food and could not get anyone to come to table to ask after that. We had food items forgotten about and extras missing from the meal like the whipped cream on the French toast. The restaurant itself was beautiful in the design and overall cleanliness however I did notice a picture Had fallen down and not replaced, tiles missing from bathroom floor,hand towels were missing and the roll was sitting on the counter and little things that tell me this place is not being managed as well as it could be. The place has a great potential to be used for events but I don’t have the confidence that the service would be there to back it up.

    Well…I made the reservation months ago, received a confirmation months ago, received a REMINDER text a few days before asking for confirmation that I’d be there only to make it to my reservation and find out the restaurant was closed. Last year, we had our wedding brunch at the restaurant during the 4th of July and we’re coming back for our wedding anniversary. Last year, the restaurant- we were told- would only be open for our event but was open for business as usual instead. It seems that DoveCote needs to really get it together as their inconsistency really put their loyal customers out. We were not the only ones to show for a reservation to a closed restaurant, did I mention that?

    My husband and I partook of the Sunday buffet today and I have to say it was TERRIBLE! The omelet I had from the so called omelet station was overcooked and the cheese was burned. The silver dollar pancakes were extremely large and believe it or not I couldn't even cut the one I got with a steak knife because the bottom was hard as a rock! This buffet was a total joke! The food was sparse and the so called assortment of pastries consisted of one pound cake that tasted like paste! Not to mention the waffles were extremely over cooked and the chicken thighs were absolutely greasy and cold. I wanted to walk out but stayed so I wouldn't cause a scene. Dove Cote is usually extremely busy on a Sunday afternoon ( I had a 12pm reservation) I counted only 5 tables! Probably because you weren't able to order ala carte and only this horrible buffet was offered. Certainly NOT what was advertised! And by the way not worth $45 a person!!! I WON'T be going back and I will alert my friends about this too!

    DoveCote is an excellent restaurant. The food was delicious. Our waiter was superb. They didn’t have ice tea on hand and they went out of their way to brew me some and it was delicious. Very pretty restaurant and the valet was very good too. Top notch. Highly recommend.

    Pretty empty brunch, $75 for a slow brunch experience without unlimited mimosas isn’t the best. You can do much better in downtown Orlando. However we did have a very okay time

    Food has really slid down in quality for the price since new owner takeover. The roast chicken (1/2 a chicken) used to be my favorite dish and has now been replaced by a mediocre chicken breast with a single tiny side. The eggplant dip appetizer was inadequately seasoned.

    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.
