    I live out of state and this is my 2nd visit to Dee's in 3 months. Everyone enjoyed their meal and I was fortunate enough to have the same server both times. I can't recall his name but he was terrific on both occasions. Will surely make another stop at Dee's the next time I'm in NY.

    As a regular lunch customer before COVID, I was able to return for dinner. The renovations were amazing, the food fantastic, pizza has never been better. What made the experience extra special was the service provided by our waiter, James who was very attentive and charming!

    You always get a very good meal here. My family and I have been customers since Dee opened almost 31 years ago. Covid unfortunately has thrown everybody a curve and a few new servers are learning the ropes. this is ok. We will always go there for the pizza is great.

    I loved my overall experience at Dees! The food was amazing! The server was terrific. The Truffle Pizza was delightful. The seafood was fresh and tasty. The Steak tacos were a surprising addition to the meal upon recommendation from our server. The Rosemary Gnocci Shrimp was one of the most impressive meals I have tasted in my life!

    Visiting from out of state, we could not have picked a better restaurant—amazing food: pizza, salmon cakes, chicken Parmesan—all prepared with an outstanding & caring uniqueness! Jerry was our server—passionate about making us happy and wanting to come back for more. This was like an upscale Cheers with white linen clothed tables. The large open pizza oven added to the ambiance! Hope we can get back here in near future. This made our trip to New York a special one!! 5 Stars!

    Considerate on reservations. Only 5 availableseats available but they considered my plus 2 so total of 7. We were also placed on a perfect seat, near the brick oven. Staff are all so nice and recommended a very good meal. Fish Tacos and the Lobster Ravioli are the best!!!

    It used to be my favorite place, but something had changed not for the best. The menu has changed tremendously. No my favorites any more. The Greek salad was not normal Greek at all: 2 olives, some chopped tomatoes and horrible lettuce. At least had one of my regulars: penne and shrimp. Little disappointment!
