"Dopo East has three very distinct sections; the front of the house is a tastefully upper-class room with exactly the sort of East Side restraint that bodes well for the dining experience; downstairs, past the wine-racks there's a quiet little dining area where a quiet rendesvous might be held; the rear courtyard has been transformed into a very comfortable glass-roofed section that has most of dining al fresco's delights but none of its downsides. The staff is VERY friendly and helpful; the kitchen a bit uneven. A shrimp fra diavolo? excellent. The Chicken with cheese and prosciutto, ummm...not so much. But we WANTED to like this place and will go back to try other menu options."

"My three friends and I went to Dopo East on a Living Social deal. On a nondescript street on the east side of Manhattan, this charming restaurant was just what the doctor ordered on a Friday night. The enclosed garden let in the setting sunlight and allowed us to experience being outdoors while still enjoying the air conditioning on a warm summer evening. The piano player and singer added just the right touch without being overwhelming. The service was attentive without being intrusive and our waiter had a wonderful sense of humor, making our time there even more enjoyable. We shared the fried calamari and zucchini along with the fresh burrata with prosciutto and figs. The entrees were very good and the Living Social deal included a bottle of wine.....Pinot Grigio which was excellent. We shared cheesecake and profiteroles (amazing!) for dessert and vowed to come back again."

"Beautiful art work adorning the walls inside and a quiet little garden patio in the back for dinner was just perfect... A very pleasant staff served us a nice meal. We had a very nice dining experience here. Thank you"

"Eating at dopo feels like you're in another country. Having a piano player and a singer there with you while you're eating is a throwback and makes the experience much more pleasurable. Definitely worth going to."
"We are not in this neighborhood much but we were going to the Metropolitan Museum and decided to check out some restaurants further away from the 70's and 80's we were not disappointed. Food was excellent, try the octopus, service was excellent. Great price fixe for lunch if you don't want to order from the menu. Also a heated patio for winter or a great spot to sit in the summer. All and all a great find on the East Side."

"Discovered Dopo East as I was searching for places to have brunch with friends. I really like having the option of adding on unlimted drinks, so Dopo East hit the spot. The servers and manager were friendly and accomodating, which made for a very enjoyable brunch. After seeing the woman at the table next to us get served a delicious looking dish, almost of us decided to get the spinach and mozzarella omelette. It was as good as it looked and the restaurant graciously added extra veggies to the omelette upon request. We lingered at our table for a while enjoying our mimosas and never felt preasured to leave. Overall, the restaurant was very charming and I would happily return for another brunch or perhaps try dinner."

"Pleasantly surprised by the bright, airy covered garden, especially on a dreary rainy day. Host was particularly gracious. Prix fixe lunch included wine. Chicken with mushrooms was outstanding as was the chick pea/pasta soup."

"Food not up to the level I remember from 6 months ago. I had a wide noodle pasta entree (braised shank of something). It has gone from a flavorful brown sauce to a pasty tomato base...no flavor. Has the chef changed?"
