    Really wanted to love this place for Sunday brunch. Pluses: relatively quiet at 10:30; food prepared to order; nice, big bar; beignets were quite good. Minuses: sat at the bar, but had a server instead of a bartender, so drinks were mediocre; he was also very slow; while the food was prepared to order, it didn’t “wow” us: egg sandwich was bland, potatoes were bland and not hot; burger was to be mid-rare but was rare; expensive for what you get.

    The ambiance was really nice. I ordered a steak off the magical dining menu. To be honest it was a little tough. We don’t normally complain. Our server Mindy was really nice and did a great job.

    We had the special menu. With all the hype about the restaurant, I thought the food was good, but not excellent. Did not detect a valet, so parked around the corner. Ambiance was fine. Why is the place rated “most romantic?” I don’t get that. Service was very good. Server did a great job of checking back without being intrusive.

    Service was unprofessional. While waiting for our table at the bar, we order drinks and pay for them immediately. After we were sited, the bartender requested my husband to show proof of payment for the drinks. The food was not good and the server was not professional. Our party ordered dessert right upfront since we were doing the magical dining special. The desserts were not available by the time we finished with our food and has to get something else. Overall, I think I would not go again and I am glad I did it with a special offer and did not pay full price for what I got since it is not worth it.

    Not sure why but every time I go there it takes forever to get a cup of coffee and then when it comes it's cold. And proper silverware on the table, and just not very good service regrettably

    Terrible start, as we were told our reservation time would not be honored, and we would have to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Our reservations included not being seated in the Courtyard, and sure enough, after 35 minutes, we were told we had to sit in the Courtyard, or continue to wait. We located a pair of tables in the restaurant that could be combined to fit our party of six, and were told that could be accomplished, but there was no one available to do this. The manager fixed that, and we finally got to sit. Three of us went the Magical Dining route. Ceasar salad was simply awful, without a hint of Ceasar taste. My wife's chopped salad was simply not chopped. We sent it back, and it returned chopped and delicious. The entrees were all good, with the duck fat fries a big hit. Desserts were the best part of the meal, accompanied by excellent coffee. Once seated, service was excellent, with the exception of the waitress disagreeing with the chopped/unchopped condition of the salad. We learned that Alicia Keyes visited the restaurant that day. Our guess is that this threw staff out of balance for the remainder of the day. Not honoring a reservation is something we had never before experienced and hope to never experience again.

    They were out of most items we were looking for at for a 7:30 reservation. They were short staffed, so seating was closer to 8:15. Steaks were not cooked to specification. Service was average. She was hard to find when needed. Beautiful restaurant though. We won’t be back.

    Ham & Cheese Beignets were tasty, Bacon wrapped Scallops were OUTSTANDING, DC Burger was good. Had a problem with Baby Kale salad (asked for extra Shrimp) did not get them, which I find happens when someone other than the server brings out the food, did not like the acidity of the dressing so I just ate the Shrimp. Ordered the Fish of the day and the Mushroom Risotto with the sauce on the side. Well I was presented with the Fish on top of the Risotto and the Sauce on top of the Fish. Again someone besides the server brought out an incorrectly prepared dish.

    Took my daughter to a “date” night for magical dining. I have heard of this place from my clients for many years so we decided to try it out. I was immediately frustrated with the parking situation in the rain. Valet was no where to be found. We walked in wet and was immediately sat. I let the server know I had an allergy. (I also put it on the notes of the reservation). When we began to order, I had questions that the server could not answer. He kept asking me if I wanted to find out the answer??? Why would I ask the question if I did not want to find the answer??? The main reasons we chose the restaurant was for the stuffed artichoke which were labeled GF online. I asked the server what kind of breadcrumbs do they use bc I have a severe allergy. He said he did not know and asked me if I wanted to find out from the chef??? I mean seriously!!! At this point in lower scale restaurants, a manager or chef would have come to the table to make sure my allergy was addressed. No one came. Server comes back for the 4th time letting me know the artichokes are not Gluten free as stated online. So we moved on and ordered ahead. My friend ordered the steak rare, my daughter ordered the salmon, and I ordered the chicken. My friends steak came out medium / medium well. When she cut into the steak she asked the server is this rare for your establishment. He said YES! She said but it is soo over cooked on the ends and the middle is barely medium. He said that is our rare. My daughters dish was fine. My chicken was a small drum stick and a thigh with minimal veggies and half the plate was wild rice. My friend asked another server to see a manager, no manger came but our server came back and asked if everything was ok. She said no. My steak is over cooked and I would like it rare. The server said it was their rare. She said I want another steak and tell them to lightly sear each side. He came back with a perfectly cooked rare steak. No manager ever showed up to our table.

    I’ve been to Dove Cote before and I just have to say this visit was disappointing. The food was very well seasoned and tasty. However, we were seated in the bank lobby and not in the restaurant. The manager said they had too many reservations and that we should have made a reservation earlier in the day. There was no apology or attempt to move us if another party left. The lobby was bright and conservations echoed due to the high ceilings. There was no dinner music and it made the vibe very awkward. The rest of my party has never been to Dove Cote and they were also disappointed, especially the birthday girl. If I would have known we were not going to be seated in the restaurant, I would have made reservations elsewhere. Our server was ok. There was no explanation of the menu when we were seated. We were dressed for dinner service but there were people there in shorts and sweat shirts. Dove Cote is not upscale any more. We will not be back.

    I am going to critique on a single issue. Our waitress was overall eager to please and did mostly that except when it came to the boxing of the takeaway portion.. My criticism is directed at the overall level of service at various restaurants we have been to recently and that was true here also. My expectation is that if I have a portion of my dinner that needs to be boxed and prepared as a takeaway, I do not want a box handed to me for me to complete the task. And I certainly do not want an attitude expressed, either verbally or non verbally that shows the servers displeasure when I insist that they need to box it. It should be a given at a restaurant of this calibre that the customer wants this task completed by the waitstaff. Then after completing this task, a bag was offered as an afterthought. I saw other patrons carrying out their boxed items without a bag. How awkward. And as at other restaurants that I have had this experience at, the defensive argument presented is because of Covid. I am no longer accepting that excuse. It is time for the level of service at these restaurants to return to precovid era. When I go to a diner or other fast food outlet or inexpensive restaurant I anticipate a different level of service and I will box my own takeaway. Not at a restaurant that wants to be considered upmarket.

    We would not go back. I ordered short ribs and about 50% of it was fat so i sent it back. I ordered a burger to replace it and it took 30 mins for the food to come. My partner had already eaten her food. While I was eating my food, we ordered sorbet for my partner and that took 20 mins to come. By this time we had to leave because we had tickets for a show. We just made it in time. The issue on top of my food order was how bad the waiter was. He was not friendly from the start and did not come by to our table often at all. When we got up to leave I told him the sorbet took too long and we had to go, to which he replied ‘this is a busy restaurant, you know’. He never once apologized for my food order nor did they expedite the new food. The manager did come and apologize which was very good. Unfortunately the experience was ruined by the poor food and the waiter.

    We did Magical Dining and regular menu - the ham and cheese beignets and bacon wrapped scallops to start, then I had the chicken special with Brussels sprouts and husband got the short rib. Everything was good but the Brussels sprouts were truly memorable. For dessert we shared the Oreo surprise which was very delish and interesting! We’ll definitely be back!

    Food was good and service was excellent. Food runners need to learn seat numbers having to claim food a little annoying. Was seated in the lobby of the office building even with reservations. Awkward being only table in lobby and everything echoes. Sat a non reservation table next to us and they complained and got moved to the actual restaurant.
