Very accommodating staff, especially at the bar, where you're a few feet from the piano and the filets and roasted potatoes are awesome.

Wife and I have been here a few times in the past. I recommended Dee Felice as my favorite place to eat of all my reviews in the past. And tonight was no exception. From Shelly accommodating us at a special table to Steve, our server, it was all great service. My favorite is still the Dee's Filet - sumptuous... More

It has been years since we've had a chance to eat at Dee Felice and we were excited to go again...we were not disappointed!

We have been visiting Dee Felice on occasion over the past five years. The service as always was good and the music enjoyable. It is time to refresh the place. It is looking rundown.
