Diner Reviews
  • "Had a wonderful Sunday brunch for two at D'Amato's last Sunday. We both partook of the amply-stocked bloody mary bar. I had a really delicious smoked salmon eggs benedict. Was pleasantly surprised to find the band "Jalopy Brother" playing fun vintage-y tunes. The decor in this place is beautiful. We've had drinks in Goodnite Gracie next door, but never had brunch here. We'll be back."

  • "We were there when they first opened at 9:00 on Father's Day. Service was excellent, everyone very friendly. Large windows were open in front and tables were set up in front of them so it was semi al fresco. It was a perfect day for it. I love the ambiance in there, kind of eclectic French bistro. Dinner there isn't anything to rave about in my experience but brunch sure is!"

  • "I went with 3 others and it is a cool Little place to eat but the food was not great. I literally had angel hair and meatballs thinking you can't mess that up. It was bland and the meatballs were like meatloaf taste/consistency. Just boring. Not interested in going back."

  • "This restaurant has become our new favorite. Love bringing new people here to try the Tuesday night surf & Turf! Best deal around and the food is always cooked to perfection. Salads are always fresh and delicious and donuts for dessert are a must! Love the new open windows. Will be back"

  • "Perfect spot in Royal Oak. Wonderful ambiance and very good service. The Italian wedding soup and calamari were excellent. The pasta dishes were barely passable. A big disappointment. I would recommend only for drinks, appetizers and dessert. Some of our party complained to management about their meals. Both our server and the manager were very responsive and gave 50% off two of the meals and comped two donut desserts for us which were delicious."

  • "Recently had a reservation and I was completely blown away by this restaurant. Not only was the ambience perfect for a date with a romantic feeling but it's a great place to go and unwind after work. I had an excellent waiter named Marvin he was nothing short of perfection. When I go back I'm definitely sitting in his section. I recommend the brisket is cooked to perfection and simply fantastic. I will definitely be back soon."

  • "I have been dining at D'Amato's for many years. The menu has always been unique with many delectable options and the service is always top-notch. Add the mood & vibe of the place and it's a very enjoyable experience. Food is cooked to order, prompt, and served with a smile. We like to linger when schedules and crowd allow. The dinner for two currently available on Tuesdays is an amazing and delicious offer. It consists of fresh, tasty bread for dipping to get you started, then soup or salad, followed by tender steak, succulent lobster, and steamed veggies, and if that isn't enough to grab ya get this: the deal includes a BOTTLE of wine AND a dessert! Whatever your occasion, whatever your taste, this place does not disappoint."

  • "This is the first time here and I really enjoyed the food, but they brought my husband lemonade and the glass was dirty. The tables were falling apart so I think they need to update that, but when the food arrived it was Amazing. I would go here again."

  • "We enjoyed a fun night out with friends at this comfortable restaurant. We sometimes forget about it being just slightly off the beaten path but it's actually more convenient to get to with ample parking across the street. Our server Josh was delightful and attentive."

  • "My husband and I decided to give D'Amatos another try (after not having been there for many years) due to its proximity to the Royal Oak Music Theater where we were attending a concert. We were so impressed that we have been back three more times in the last six weeks! The food is outstanding as is the service, and the prices are reasonable given the quality and quantity of food. The presentation of the food is very pleasing as well. Each visit, the food was wonderful except for the last time when my husband's gnocchi were not prepared well. The server immediately offered my husband something else and did not charge him for his meal (totally unexpected). The cannolis are the best we've ever had (filled to order)! Highly recommended!!"

  • "Had to leave. Waited 45 minutes and only received a bottle of wine and bread. Saw my waiter twice and both times he was busy servicing the banquet room adjacent to our table."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "The fish special was very skimpy looking on the plate. It could have been filled with a few more vegetables. Taste ok. The stuffed shells, maybe rich in flavor, because i got tired of eating them. They felt heavy on the stomach. If i returned, i would never order those 2 dishes. Everyone has different tastes and expectations. Service was great."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We took advantage of the Thursday night promotion of Prime Rib for two for $50.00. The salad was fresh, the beef was nearly perfect with no "tenderizer" taste and done to perfection. Presentation was very well done, the wine was a nice paring with the meal and the service was excellent. Desert was an unexpected but very pleasant change from the usual. We thought our server was joking when he mentioned something about "donuts" . Overall a very nice experience."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Food was great but restaurant was very loud. I felt like loud music just added to the confusion. Too loud for conversation. It felt like a New Orleans bar during Mardi Gras. Sorry but acoustics and ambiance matter."

  • "Food and service is just great!!! Tony, the owner is always friendly, on the job and accommodating. Our server jason could not be nicer.always a nice exprience. I would recommend this venue to anyone who wannts really good food and service."

  • "I was pleased with my visit to this restaurant. I wasn't sure twhat to expect but it is a secret gem. It is located in a wonderful spot in Royal Oak. The food was fabulous, the prices were good, the service was fantastic (ask for Pete, he's the BEST) and the place is chic! My girlfriends and I went for a night out and it far surpassed all of our expectations!!! This is now on my favorite list for Royal Oak restaurants! I highly recommend this place!!!"

  • "We enjoyed our dinner and a previous brunch. I'd recommend this restaurant to all ages, food requests and more. To ALL note, your GPS will NOT state Sherman as is the address. It will state, Lafayette, South. Sorry to the restaurant, but the first time I'd been there, I was lost. I have a NEW car/GPS and it continually took me NORTH on Sherman instead of South which IS LAFAYETTE. I could be wrong, but my new upscale car isn't typically inaccurate. thank you for a pleasurable evening and a recent brunch, Pam"

  • "Nice place. The waiter did a good job considering how busy he was. My fish was very good, the Lamb chops were also excellent. The other two in our party had a checken dish and pasta, no complaint. Only draw back was in the pricing of the drinks. Two had Grey Goose on the rocks at $8.50 (kind of standard $) Two had Grey Goose up and were charged $12.50? An additional $4.00 per drink seemed kind of expensive for a splach of vermouth But, overall I would go back."

  • "Decided to dine at a restaurant my wife and I had never been too before. The food was very good and while I cannot remember the name of the wine, my wife loved her glass of red wine. The service was good, but very much at a relaxed pace. If you are in a hurry, don't dine here."

  • "I wanted to suprise my wife with a nice romantic dinner at a fancy italian restaurant. I felt like from the start my wife and I were cast aside, and almost forgotten about. Food was okay, beer was extremely over priced! The waiter was terrible. I finished my beer with the salad and appetizer and was never given the opportunity to order again until we were ready to leave. Seats were very wobbly, overall I would not recommend and I will never Return!"

  • "The new management of D'Amato's have certainly hit their stride with a terrific and diverse new menu. The food is consistently good and the service is impeccable! If you are a regular patron or if you haven't tried D'Amato's recently, I urge you to stop in for a great experience."

  • "Food was great. I had the surf and turf and it was cooked correctly and the presentation was nice. Atmosphere was nice and not too loud. Service was not that good. After our meal arrived we never saw the waiter again except the fly by to drop the bill on the table. Would go back as the food was great. Will just make sure we get a different waiter."

  • "We went to D'Amatos on valentines day. We were looking for something with good food but still with a laid back atmosphere. This fit the bill just right. The food was good with generous portions and we had not issues with the service. Goodnight Gracie's is right next door and it looked like there were quite a few people already in there dancing by the time we left. The music was good too. The only drawback I saw was that some of the finishes in the dining area seemed a little old and worn. They could use a little upgrade to make the place really shine."

  • "I made the servant ion about 1week before valentines day. I received 2 follow up emails and a phone call confirming my reservation and telling me that we would have a2hour time limit. When we got there the place was not that busy and when we left there were plenty of open tables. The food was very good and so was the wait staff. Just a little annoyed that I felt like I was under a time constraint, I could certainly understand if they were booked, but they obviously were not."

  • "My husband and I got married at this restaurant and try to return each yet to celebrate our anniversary. This year was even better than the test because the new manager/owner took us on a tour of the building and bought us our drinks and apps at the bar before dinner. My wife an I both have backgrounds in the restaurant industry and really appreciated this sincere and generous gesture. The staff was extremely friendly and outgoing. Food was amazing as usual...we had the beef carpaccio , calamari, beef brisket, and fillet, and tiramisu. Our only complaint was the steak wasn't our favorite dish we've had there... The first and only disappoint in 5 years eating there . Overall we Highly recommend."
