Easter brunch buffet, $30 a head. We had a reservation. First, we were shown to a table where everyone would brush past on on their way to and from the buffet. Eventually we were able to move. The buffet was very ordinary, the hot food was mostly cold, no potatoes when we were there. While we were at the buffet one of the waiters cleared away everything on our table. It took ages to get it reset. It was like eating in a cafeteria. $2.75 extra for coffee. And then they had the effrontery to add a "mandatory" service charge of 20% for service which was either very poor or non-existent.

Valentines night 2017 was wonderful but Valentines night 2018 was average and overpriced--the steak was hard to chew, the fillet was dry AND the entertainment was too loud and not at all romantic or danceable. No single rose for the ladies in 2018 for double the price of the evening. We were relieved when the singer took a break and the keyboarder alone was way too loud too.
A valentine miss.

Although it was the biggest celebrated holiday of the year, the venue provided fair food, slow service (have to understand the day), and fantastic music. I will revisit on a non holiday for the true experience.

Do not waste your time or money at Dulcet. Management should close the place down and a restaurant and only be open as the night club. Everytime we go in there is a problem with our food and service is poor.

I haven't been to Dulcet for over a year but thought it would be fun for a birthday dinner. I know that they had added dance and music to the late evening so we made reservations for 6:30pm thinking we could have an atmosphere conducive to conversation. I know, conversation with dinner? Not distracted by TVs or texting? What a concept.
I tried to schedule our reservations around Dulcet's "club schedule".

But we walked in the door only to be met by a wall of sound, piano and singer much too loud for this venue and certainly not conducive to dinner conversation. In this restaurant you can never be farther than 3o feet from the stage, although the maitre d' attempted to accommodate our wishes. I told him that the schedule of music posted was to start at 8:00 and it was only 6:30. He said that someone decided to start playing early.

Sadly, we had planned our whole evening around dinner at Dulcet but simply couldn't sit and have a conversation even if we spoke at the top of our voices. We departed, and safe to say, we will not be back.

NPR has several bars and clubs to play music so you can't talk to each other, but it needs at least one restaurant where you can have fine food and conversation. Or maybe NPR is forever lost in the land to fast food, bars and clubs. So much for elegant dining.
