The parking lot is kind of small, but there is an adjacent mall lot to help with overflow. Once inside you are promptly greeted and seated. If you're meeting someone they'll ask their name and the direct you to the proper table. More restaurants could take lessons from their seating efficiency. The wait staff are impeccably dressed and prompt to... More

I have been here about three times and have had a great experience each time! The food is delicious - good happy hour deals, and a variety of options for meat eaters, vegetarians, those watching their weight, etc. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Very cozy for a winter meal since the woodfire is constantly going! Recommend all of their... More

We were here for dinner on Friday night. Our sever, Cheyenne, was great. Attentive, helpful, good sense of humor. The restaurant had nice ambiance...warm, low lighting, comfortable furnishings, etc. The food was fine, but didn't blow my hair back. I had hanger steak but we also had chicken and salads at the table. It was all fine. Cheyenne suggested the... More

We took my parents and most of us ordered ribs, pork chops or the fire roasted chicken. I was very disappointed in the chicken. It was dry and lacked flavor other than the skin. My father wasn't impressed with the ribs and he loves ribs.

This is a lovely restaurant in a very busy area in Golden Valley and even near a Patina:). The hospitality was friendly and genuine. My burger came out pretty rare and I had ordered medium-well. They were so nice to make me another and also took it off the bill. I am a frequent diner at a Doolittles in Alexandria,... More

This was a wonderful restaurant and should rate #1 in Golden Valley. 3 friends and myself all ordered different entrees and everyone cleaned their plates. Sky was our server and did a wonderful job. Served with rosemary bread was spectacle.

My family loves this place. The decorations are great, depicting the history of aviation. The food is excellent. Anything with their wood fire smoked chicken or ribs in it is wonderful. The chicken is moist and flavorful and the ribs fall off the rack. I normally don't order a salad at a restaurant but I love getting their salads with... More

The smell was unbelievable, from the moment we stepped in we could smell the wood fire grill and rotisserie! I had the ribeye steak and it was perfect. The place was pack but we were able to be sited right away. Great place, great food and very nice servers!

Featuring woodfired rotisserie cooking, Doolittles Woodfire Grill is an experience that ignites all of your senses! The woodfired rotisserie grills meat over an open flame for a savory wood roasted flavor. The rotation of the rotisserie creates self basting and slow roasting skewers resulting in juicy and succulent meats such as Spit-Roasted Chicken, and Smoked Hanger Steak with Horseradish-Whipped Potatoes and Red Wine Reduction. Doolittles boasts over 60 wines by the bottle and 30 selections by the glass. Come as you are!
