    it is at a culinary school but needs to be advertised more! had a great dinner with my husband not very busy and the food was wonderful. he had a 14 oz steak and i had chicken both very flavorful. Only downside was they couldnt serve us wine as they didnt have their liquor license at the time and didnt have any other drink options except for water. Dessert was yummy too! i know where we will go when we want high class food but privacy and not too expensive! we enjoyed it.

    My date and I went here to celebrate a special occasion in our relationship. We were delighted from the start. We were greeted warmly, and our reservation was recognized. My date needed to know about the gluten free options, and the server shared those with us promptly. To start, I ate one of the Italian herb rolls that was brought to the table. It was bursting with flavor from thyme, oregano, and basil. My date enjoyed her bruschetta salad. I got the duck breast that was on special. It came with a citrus bourbon sauce that complemented the duck well. There were also some julienned vegetables that were arranged attractively beside a bed of tri-color Israeli cous cous. My date enjoyed her mediterranean chicken.

    Had dinner at Chefs di Domani last week. I had heard great things from friends and was excited to try it. I was first struck by the decor. The dining room, which looks elegant on their website, looked more like the dining room at the Airport Holiday Inn. I ordered the Caprese salad, medium rare Filet Mignon, and a glass of wine. The Carprese salad wasn't very good. The mozzarella cheese was mushy and tasteless as though it had been frozen. The same could be said for my steak. It was cooked medium and had virtually no seasoning at all. Also, it had a mealy texture which I associate with frozen meat. Finally, my glass of wine was served warm -- not room temperature, but actually warm. All in all, a very disappointing experience.

    We had reservations for our anniversary at anther restaurant and we're told the day of it was not recommended. We decided to try Chefs Di Domani, for something different. My husband and I are so glad we tried it. The meal was excellent! My husband said at least three times during dinner " I am so glad we came here for dinner". It was quite, we could carry on a conversation and we had a bottle of champagne, it was exactly what we were looking for for our anniversary. The food was amazing... I feel the price was excellent. I had the special, filet minion stuffed with shrimp with bernaise sauce and my husband had the shrimp scampi special. We hand a wonderful appetizer and dessert all for $100.00 with a tip. We will definitely be returning.

    We had the Valentines four course special with the wine pairing. The food was excellent and presented nicely. But service was slow and we felt overlooked. In fact our soup course never arrived. After two hours we got our deserts to go. Fortunately I had good company so do not consider it a bad experience. The staff was very nice and I realize they are learning. The German Chateau Ste Michelle wine was excellent.

    The food was excellent and the staff (made up of students and chefs) was very attentive, yet unobtrusive. We both had the filet with asparagus and mashed potatoes. It was all amazing food but the mashed potatoes and asparagus were possibly the best I've ever had. They are definitely training their soon to be chefs on how to wow the customer. Thank you for an exceptional evening! We will be back!

    The ambiance immediately threw us off. We thought we were going to experience fine dining, but the room and tables were not suitable for that -- more like for a family steakhouse. The lights were very bright -- we were hoping to enjoy fine food in an intimate setting. The server was polite but a little too attentive. She checked on us every few minutes, which becomes intrusive on what was meant to be an intimate evening. I had the coriander crusted pork chops which were cooked a perfect medium, but the coriander was overpowering -- I couldn't enjoy any of the more delicate flavors of the side dishes. Overall everything was fine. We had just hoped for a nicer experience in a nicer environment.

    This was our second visit. We would come every week if we didn't live 3 hours away! From the moment you walk in you feel welcome. We were so fortunate that Apprentice Chef Iris spotted us, remembered us from before and took care of us like we were her family. The Mediterranian Chicken on a bed of mashed potatoes was fabulous. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection. The chef made a point to stop by our table several times to check on our food and to chat. Overall this is one of my favorite restaurants not just because of the food but because I get such a kick out of watching these blossoming chefs going about their business.

    We arrived fifteen minutes early for our reservation and were greeted by a very friendly host. We had looked over the menu that was posted on line and had decided on what the meal would be, we wanted the Bourbon Infused Duck, our server told us the menu on line was out of date and that was not available. The Chef did accommodate our taste for duck with a wonderful meal of duck with a red wine sauce. The Fried Bread Pudding for dessert was exceptional, unlike some this was not over powered by the raisins. The restaurant was very quiet and relaxed, which gave us a chance to have a conversation without the entire restaurant hearing. We would highly recommend this restaurant for a quiet special evening out.

    My wife and I dined at Chefs di Domani on a Friday evening in February. The restaurant was nearly empty and even though it was inside Platt college it was a warm and inviting atmosphere. Our waitress, a culinary student, was very nice but obviously uncomfortable with waiting tables. She was very pleasant, helpful, and attentive. Not five star service but we enjoyed the experience and felt like we were "helping out" the students even though we probably were not. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. If you are willing to take yourself a little less seriously, I would highly recommend. Overall, a great evening and we plan to go back soon.

The food Was excellent and the wine was very good as well. We had a blue crab cake appetizer, Tomato bisque soup, greek salad, mediterranean chicken, very large ribeye steak, and a chocolate torte for dessert. Everything was delicious!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    We went to Chefs di Domani knowing that it was associated with a culinary school. We were prepared for things to be imperfect. The food was better than we expected though the portions were kind of small. The food is what you would get at a fine dining establishment, but the prices are more in the $12-17 dollar range. My only criticism would be associated with the service. The wait staff seemed very inexperienced and nervous. Though the menu is pretty small, our waiter could not tell us much about the offerings. We wrote this off as us having a new student serve us, so it was fine. I will recommend Chefs to my friends and family but will warn them of the potential need to be patient/tolerant.

We wish them all well and thank them for taking the time to indulge us. All seemed quite happy in their choice of career.

    Thought it would be more inter-active with the wait staff and chef. Thought that is one of the selling points to the restaurant. Waiter and others were attentive without being obtrusive. They acknowledged the occassion that I alerted them to when I made the reservation. Great place for small groups to be able to enjoy a quiet evening.

    My mother chose to eat here, for her 91st birthday celebration(our first time at this restaurant). The food was excellent, and the presentation was great, but the waiter seemed to have been grabbed off the street, as a last minute fill in. There was no host at the entrance to greet us, not similar to any restaurant I have ever eaten in. I would return for the food, but I would certainly hope that a culinary school could provide better waiters.

    You should not take guests if you aren't serving the full menu. Change out or no change out, we expected to be able to order what was on the menu. This was the worst experience we could have had and I am embarrassed that we invited two other couples to join us. One cancelled and didn't even join us because you didn't have the salmon as an option. I will never dine with you again. What a huge disappointment. If you are TEACHING students and they think it is acceptable to treat customers the way we were treated, they will never find success, especially with social media and the ability for people to post poor reviews and distribute it to thousands of people in seconds.

The tenderloin appetizer was very tasty, but to chewey. The Duck was was prepared. The Panini was good. However the person who ordered the ham panini could only tolerate a couple bites as the brie was to strong and an unexpectedly firm and spongy texture. We all four agreed that we MUST return.
