Before the weather turned cold in November, we had a lovely meal on the patio of the Dodo restaurant. Great food. Lovely portion sizes. Great view of Sugarhouse Park across the street.

Pleasant service and good food at a reasonable price. The Artichoke Pie-D, Spinach & Feta Quiche Soup 3-Cup and Cajun Chicken Alfredo-D are especially tasty. The Banana Cream Cheese Pie was lethal. It was a little noisy, but didn't ruin the over all experience.

We stopped at the Dodo for a late lunch (3pm) so it wasn't too busy. We opted to eat on the veranda, which was a nice change from the air conditioning. Service was excellent. I shared a rueban, but beware, they have no fryer. So although the soup or salad that somes with the entree was nice, if you want... More

Chicken and salmon on the overcooked side. But tasty. However the acoustics inside do not lend themselves to a quiet dining experience. We either had to raise our voices to hear each other or stay quiet. Dine outside on the patio if you wish to converse with a friend or partner without having to shout. Way over priced would be...

It seems this restaurant is always busy although I saw nothing special. The dishes were very good but yet I couldn't realise why it's so famous among the locals.

We joined friends here for dinner at their recommendation, not really knowing what we might want. The place was packed with families and couples. Our server was very nice, offering suggestions to our questions. I had a shrimp stir fry special that was very tasty. Another had the enchiladas and the others a chilled chicken ramen salad. All of us... More

Really great local place. Lots of sandwiches & great soups. The Rueben was excellent & the wife's DoDo club was really good too. A must visit for lunch.

Met a friend here for an early dinner. Had the minestrone soup. It was great. My wife had the macadamia raspberry? halibut .. It was very good , but a little to much butter. Ahi appetizer was great..

The artichoke pie is always wonderful. Sometimes as a meal with a side salad or as an app like last night. Brion was our server and was spot on. My friend and I lingered over our wine before ordering dinner and he never rushed us. Over the years I have eaten here many times and not once a bad dish.... More

We've eaten at the Dodo twice and each time my wife has gotten extremely sick from their food. The first time we ate there was just the two of us and we thought it was pretty nice but as soon as we got home my wife got sick. The second time we went was with family and my wife got... More
