    This is a SOLID neighborhood place. Love the ambiance, and the food is delicious, always. Best described, I think, as very upscale home cooking.

    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!

    Took a friend out to dinner and wanted to stay local. Dee’s was the right choice. We were seated right away, and our server was friendly and attentive. We started with the three cheese spinach dip brûlée, which we demolished because it was so good. We got the truffle pizza and Dee’s fettuccine as entrees, and neither of us was disappointed. The fettucine has shrimp and the world’s most delicious bacon in it. For dessert, we shared a marvelous tartufo. I highly recommend Dee’s.

    I do enjoy going to Dees'. The food is good. The service was very good. The waiter was very pleasant and friendly. However, 1) the prices have definitely gone up. I thought a little expensive for a neighborhood restaurant. 2) The noise level was unbelievable. We were sitting very near to their party room which had a function in it. The restaurant definitely has no sound-proofing. The levels of noise was so high, that I ran out of the restaurant after my dinner, no dessert or lingering. If I do go back to this restaurant, I will be sure that there is no party going on. I will not recommend this restaurant due to the noise levels.

    What a great experience. Had an amazing waiter Dimitri, so personable and such a pleasure. Was very knowledgeable about specials and venue itself. From the wings , mushroom pizza which was to die for to the salmon special & salad was all delicious. Finished off with home made chocolate chip cookies and a cappuccino!! Great portions not over priced at all. Right on target and not like other places that brow beat you with prices. Will definitely be back.

    Have been going here for years so always dependable Service is always good and the recent tweaks to the dining room layout work very well. Few things could improve. Consistency in cocktails. Some tasted different second time. We had several different and none were standouts really. Wine by the glass choice for reds were good. Chicken and portobello pasta dish had way too many mushrooms to chicken and sauce was very thick, to make it almost stodgy this time around. Disappointed as had recommended based on past experience. I would freshen this dish up with an additional green vegetable. Now for the very good. The Short ribs were really excellent. Polenta and Asparagus was perfectly cooked. This is a stand out dish.
