    Great location and concept. When you arrive it's not welcoming and the owner/manager was just seating there at the bar and was not very friendly. As a vegetarian, asked for a charcuterie plate with only cheese and first, they said there were unable to accommodate (weird) after they brought the plate with just cheese. The server was super friendly and tried her best, she was really nice and was very helpful and apologetic. She is an asset. The food was not good, but maybe my mistake was ordering savory items, while I think they specialize in sweets and desserts. It was my birthday.

    My husband and I had a great brunch at Dolce. The banana dulce de leche almond crepe was so delicious! My husband enjoyed his food as well. We brought home a mini cake for my mom and she said it was outrageous! Super sweet service as well :)

    The service was excellent! The food even better! And the bottomless mimosas were an added bonus..

    We walked into the very small restaurant were not greeted by anyone. I finally want up to an employee to ask about my table I had reserved for, she stated yes I have your table however, I was told by another employee there was another party waiting although I had the reservation we still had to wait about 15 minutes. Finally when seated we chose our waitress to be the more friendlier one and she was great. I believe her name was Janeese (blond hair). She kept the champagne coming and was very sweet and accommodating. I am not sure I will return here due to fact that having a reservation did not take priority.

    What a disappointing experience. I was skeptical after reading the reviews but still wanted to give it a shot… unfortunately, the reviews were right. The restaurant is very small with minimal seating. It does not have much for decor and does not feel inviting when entering. We sat down and were offered beverages by a very kind server. The service was probably the only positive thing from our experience. Looking over the menu, they advertise “all-day brunch” but Chef Mic(rowave) makes it difficult to order the things you normally would at brunch. We ordered a couple salmon bagels, a couple breakfast bowls, and a breakfast sandwich. I tried to order a fried egg on the side but they only were able to make scrambled eggs (red flag). The food came out and was extremely disappointing both flavor and presentation-wise. Looks NOTHING like how glorious their food looks on their website. We didn’t even get any bottomless mimosas because of how dull the place was. We will likely not return.

    The pictures on Dolce's website were a little deceiving. Dolce looked very glamorous. Was so excited to try it, but then was quite disappointed. Our waitress tried very hard but had a difficult time with numerous issues. Ice machine broken--had to go buy ice. She was not really sure about what was in the sandwiches on the menu. (menu mentioned sweet bread--she was not familiar.) Desserts were as pictured but 2 of our 3 were really not fresh. Aside from the food, the bathroom really needed cleaning and updating--very old and not very clean. Dolce has some good ideas, but they have some work to do on both the food and the overall appearance.

    When I realized it was in downtown Orlando I was hesitant because I didn’t want a crazy loud vibe. I wanted something calm and relaxing and this was exactly it! Me and my party had the best brunch experience I could’ve asked for on my birthday. Our server was so attentive, patient and kind. The food was exactly what I craved, the endless mimosas are a great price and I didn’t have to sit around waiting to be served another glass. I have not a single negative thing to say about Dolce, what a wonderful experience.

    Nice place to get a fairly priced brunch. They were very busy and took more than expected for simple plates. Food was good although simple and dessert was very good.

    Very nice spot in downtown Orlando. The food was really good and sitting outside in nice weather is perfect. Great selection of dessert and the menu had really unique items .

    We had a party of 15 on Easter Sunday for prime time 11:00am breakfast. As we arrive we did not have to wait to be seated as our tables were reserved ahead of time. The restaurant was beautiful, quiet, great lighting, and very affordable with many for all.

    Great food and professional service. The location is a bit small, but cozy inside. Due to the doors being open (on an unusually cold day) plus the air conditioning being on, it was a bit chilly inside, and of course, the small square footage did not help. Yet, we were pleased that our server closed the door upon our request.
