    It had been a while since we visited Dominics and I am not sure why as the food, service and ambience were excellent. We were a party of 8 and everyone raved about the place. We will certainly go back and soon.

    Very nice home style food as usual, paying attention to taste rather than presentation. Slow service also as usual, but staff are warm and friendly. A cozy place in general. Not surprisingly, prices are much higher than its pre-pandemic era - I used to give a 5 to value, but now down to 4, still better than average. Overall a high 4.

    Busy night (New Years Eve) so I let service slide a bit. Reservation at seven, didn’t seat us till almost 730. They were busy and doing decent turnover but ok. $17 for three shrimp? Come on. Steak was ok, not stellar and could have honestly gotten better at a Texas Roadhouse for the $ but again, busy NYE. Still a medium ribeye should have been easier to cut w a steak knife. Staff was friendly but 20 mins to order and get drinks sitting w water only. Again, NYE but the place is not that big.

    The veal piccata was very flavorful and tender. Vegetables were great, especially the.broccoli and roasted potatoes. We love this restaurant because it is consistently good and the ambiance is very nice. And the owners Dominic and Jackie are wonderful people and also Maria, their daughter who manages the restaurant.

    A flawless meal at Dominic’s with exceptionally attentive service, top notch food, and festive music that was the right level to enjoy and hear conversations. The trout was perfectly cooked as were the veggies and the potato had a touch of truffle. The waiter recommended a wonderful wine pairing. I will be back.

    Recently returned from living out of town and went to Dominic’s Trattoria, an old favorite. First time in 4 or 5 years. Still has superb food - recipes haven’t changed. Our favorites are Linguine with clams and Spaghetti and meatballs plus the house salad. The flavors we remembered are still there. Ask for the tapenade dip to accompany the bread. It’s off-menu. After living in Miami (a Mecca for great restaurants) we were pleasantly impressed by the prices of the food and wine lists. 5 stars on everything!

    Dominics Trattoria has all the important aspects all together. The quality of the food is on point. Made with care and execution. It feels a little 90's in the place but it is located in a nice area. Excellent wine list. Staff is very nice and not stuffy. I would love to go back and try more dishes.

    Disappointing. The food was just OK. The broccoli and potato sides were outstanding! The salmon was dry. The salad was terrible and over dressed. We had to ask for Parmesan cheese. The waiter had no waiter skills. He never smiled. He never came to check on our table. He complained that we did not ask for separate checks when ordered. Sir - if it is such a big deal, why didn’t you ask us when we ordered?

    Usually a good experience, but this was terrible. As we were the first people to be seated in the main dining room, we ordered drinks and food immediately and were served drinks quickly. It took 1 hour and 20 minutes to get and eat our full first course of toasted ravioli, eggplant Parmesan and 2 salads. Because our waiter got busy and did not come back to our side of the room, we asked our wonderful busman a couple times for our food, as we needed to be quick. Eventually our entrees were being served but we had to leave. When we asked to speak with management, she came over and told us it was our fault that we did not request a rush and then claimed we were lying about being the first seated in the dining room. Never before have we experienced something like this at such a great restaurant. Very disappointing evening!

    Ordered four dishes to share family style. Pappardelle alla Bolognese was cooked perfectly (my favorite), and I also enjoyed Lobster risotto (creamy and generous chunks of lobster), chicken parm (chicken was moist with tasty crust) and Linguini with clams (light and delicious broth) . By far our best meal while visiting St Louis! Staff was very accommodating, despite making reservations at their Clayton restaurant on accident. Would highly recommend!
