We had a really good time at Docks. We liked the food and atmosphere. We liked how spacious it was. You can look out on the street.

my rating is for the one on the west side but i wrote it here so people will go there instead. I always go there its better staff and they dont over cook the lobster like on the east side. maybe because it is smaller and more of a neighborhood feel in the west side. So if you have never been to docks, just go to the west side. East side staff is not up to par.

I went for the Sunday brunch this past weekend. For an upscale restaurant in the midtown area, the service was absolutely horrible. The waitress I had was miserable. She did not smile once and messed up the order. When our food came out wrong, we had to send the order back with another server because she went mia. After re-ordering and receiving the correct order, the homefries and my boyfriend's meal came back completely ice cold. The waitress never checked on us to ask how the meal was. The actual food was pretty decent, however, not worth the terrible service which made the experience quite dissappointing. Docks should learn how to train its staff.

My girlfriend and I went to Docks for Sunday Brunch yesterday after being reccomended by some friends. While the food was decent we had the misfortune of being seated in a very inexperienced and unattentive waitress's section. Our orders came out wrong and she came to the table on two occassions with Hollandaise sauce dripping from her lip. When our food did finally arrive it was cold..not our morning i guess. Overall it was a big disappointment and we will not return.

I was here last a couple of years back for a very nice dinner, and had a lovely lunch there last summer (delicious lobster roll!) but my most recent visit for dinner was a pretty big disappointment. The pricey menu was even more so ($8.00 for a cup of merely adequate chowder), my main course was woefully underseasoned, and while the service was attentive, it was attentive in a bad way. Our server seemed really unhappy and disinterested; almost hostile, actually -- and any time my companion put her fork down a busboy arrived to whisk her plate away - not once but twice - while she was still working on her entree. The worst component of the evening, however, was the side dish of rice pilaf that came with my entree - had an aftertaste of chemicals - one forkful was enough to be tasting it for the rest of the night. If you're going to Docks, avoid the rice pilaf for sure, but you're better off elsewhere. It's a great atmosphere and energy if you just want to get a quick drink or something, but for serious diners, there are far better seafood restaurants to be had in NYC.

There's not enough I can say about Dock's. I have dinner here with my father about twice a month and every time, we are so happy with our choice. The only difference between Dock's and seafood places like BLT Fish and Oceana is that the waiters treat you well even if you aren't a celebrity or spending $500 on a meal. I highly recommend the Sunday and Monday night New England Clambakes: A 2 pound lobster is served with clams, mussles, red potatoes, corn on the cob, a starter salad, and key lime pie or ice cream for dessert for a mere $40 and it is absolutely delicious. Dock's has a special place in my heart.

A friend recommended this place so we decided to give it a go despite the other poor reviews. Sadly the reviews were spot on. Found that the quality was not great. Startrers were nothing to write home about and then the main course came. My wife had a sorry and dry portion of swordfish for main while I went for the tuna that was bland in flavour. The worst was the bill. Overpriced.
