Four of us went to dinner. Three were very satisfied with the food. I ordered the red snapper special. It was very dry. Didn't feel like eating all of it--just enough to take the edge off of my hunger. I'm willing to try again--nobody's perfect.

Much improved since first opening. Especially like it for lunch. The filet mignon sliders are really good and their french fries are probably the best in the county.

Went for my anniversary for the first time. I got the chicken teriyaki wok bowl and boyfriend got the carnitas sandwich. His sandwhich was amazing and the FRIES, wow. My wok bowl was similar to bento bowls but nonetheless very good too. You could tell the ingredients were fresh.

Food was as good as always but the service this time was a bit off starting with the host/manager who started to seat us inside when he knew we were waiting for outside. We were a table of two and the first drink order took a while and then they forgot one (of the two) and it took about 7-8 minutes to bring the second one (a beer) after asking for it twice more. So service was unusually off. Still recommend but hope that improves back to what it was.

Made a reservation for at Sunday 5 pm including a note to request a booth along the windows- there are several throughout the perimeter of the restaurant. Both myself and guest arrived just before 5 pm and checked in with the hostess and were told it would be a few minutes.

By 5:15 we were still waiting for a table and could see plenty open. When we were finally approached it was a hesitant "would you mind this table?" in the bar which is the only 2 person booth on the perimeter, adjacent to the front door where people wait and the pathway to the restroom. We declined and the reaction looked like they expected the answer; we were told they would have a table shortly.

A short wait and we were invited to an interior table, we looked at the booth on the window and requested we be able to sit there and were told no. Then the hostess reiterated there was not a server to handle that booth. We reluctantly sat and watched a foursome of adults who were walk-ins be sat next to us who also asked for the windowed booth; they as well were told no it did not have a server. Within 2 minutes the same hostess brought 2 parents and two young children and sat them in the booth.
Obviously making a reservation and request does not make a difference.

Having said that, Antonio, our server was FANTASTIC. He was on point with recommendations and requests and allowed us to enjoy our meal and conversation while not feeling rushed but well-attended to. The food was great (it always is).

The sun set and restaurant was dark a little after 6 and when we left at 7 not a single table had their candles lit. Great restaurant, great food and great service EXCEPT the front of the house which REALLY needs to get it together.

Have eaten here many times and it is usually 5 star. We had a reservation but we were not sat till about 20 minutes late. We were given a high top instead of a table, which isn't what we wanted but not bad. The waitress was nice but the kitchen was so slow that we had to rush/not finish our meals to make the theater. Feel like I should be honest, this is not the usual experience.

We had a great lunch prior to a matinee at the Broward Center. We enjoyed all our dishes: fish sandwich, blackened tiger shrimp salad, shrimp Wok Out bowl, veggie burger with sweet potato fries, and key lime pie. Service was very good. My only criticism is the prices for wine by the glass, which were all at least $11. They need a few lower priced options. Otherwise we had a great experience and will definitely be back!

We had a mixed experience. The good: food was tasty, prepared and presented well; the servers were generally friendly and helpful. The bad: items on menu discontinued, confusing service model - we did not see the same person twice, and they didn’t serve decaf coffee. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a restaurant that doesn’t serve decaf coffee. Sometimes I have to wait for a pot to brew but no decaf...unheard of. This was only made worse when I walked out and saw a coffee shop directly across from the restaurant. Had Doc B’s offered to get me cup, if they couldn’t make one for me, I would probably have order dessert. I was in town for a show so I won’t likely be back, but if I do return I would not dine here. Others may have a different experience.

Needed a restaurant in the Las Olas area and was looking for something new. Found Doc B's on OpenTable and menu looked good, so I took a chance. What a great decision. Food was excellent, staff was attentive and atmosphere was relaxed. Definitely will be back.

They allow dogs. The table next to us had his dog on the table!! The waiter was petting the dog, kissing his face , touching the dog and then serving other patrons!! it’s very very disgusting to know that someone else is going to sit at that table that a dog sat on top of the table and on the chairs and that a waiter who serves people immediately after touching the dog was serving utensils and food to the table next to me .
I will never return. And I will tell others how un sanitary the restaurant was!!!
