    Food is usually good but not memorable. And while the chairs are some of the most comfortable in NO, the experience is cold and less than fulfilling.

    our dinner at Dominiques's was disappointing. The interior was interesting and modern but the food was seriously lacking. Our steaks were dry. The four of us ordered every appetizer on the menu and none were very good. we also ordered 3 desserts which were not interesting or tasty. The banana cream pie tasted and looked like a banana from a blender. There were too many complicated sauces and ingredients instead of just good food.

    My table was overall disappointed with Dominique's. I enjoyed my food the most but one of my companions hated both her appetizer and her entree. I found my food to be serviceable, but certainly not delectable, exotic, original or exciting. The worst part was the noise/acoustics. There weren't even that many people there (we had a 9:30 reservation) and I could hardly hear my companions across the table. I can't imagine how challenging it would be to have a conversation with a booked house. We did have a good waitress and they gave us cotton candy at the close, but that was not enough to salvage an overall disappointing experience. I would not go back.

    Hadn't tired Dominique's new place so when we saw the Coolinary special advertised on Open Table we thought it was a great opportunity to do so. + Great food, great service, great décor. Love the trademark cotton candy ending. - We had to ask for the Coolinary menu selections - they weren't offered to us or anyone sitting around us. While the new place is beautiful and the décor outstanding, it's a bit too noisy and the proximity of seating to your neighbor just adds to the noise problem. We really don't want to hear someone else's intimate conversation or share ours with them. OVERALL: We had the great food we expected with the attentive service we're accustomed to. Maybe a little soundproofing is the answer.

    The place is beautiful. The staff and dinner were excellent. We went for the coolinary promotion but ordered off the menu. I'm a sucker for soft shelled crabs. They were fixed to perfection. Some of our table mates ordered the coolinary menu and were very pleased. I would have to think twice about returning......the noise level was waaaaaay tooooo loud

    Truly outstanding and inspired cuisine here. Interesting flavors beautifully presented. Our head waitress was extremely knowledgable about the menu and was able to accurately recite specials from memory (impressive!). However, the back up wait staff delivered appetizers, drinks and dessert to the wrong people in our party. It was very frustrating, but when brought to management's attention at the end of the evening it was addressed by the chef immediately and to my satisfaction.

    We had a mixed experience for dinner. The appetizers were phenomenal (the goat cheese/sweet onion fricassee and kobe beef tartar). Dinner was only average. My wife had the lemon fish special, which had too strong of a citrus flavor. I had the maple duck, which had less flavor than anticipated. We had the strawberry shortcake special for dessert, which was good. The bar is excellent and makes great cocktails. The best surprise was the green apple cotton candy provided at the end of the meal - simply outstanding! Overall it was a good experience, but not as great as we were expecting. The entrees were a disappointment.

    From the atmosphere, the impeccable service, to the amazing food. My overall experience at Dominique's was a fantastic. I went on the reccomendation of a fellow food lover, and was not dissappointed. The staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable, but we all go out to dine for food which was well thought out and fabulously executed. I would definitely return, and the only reason I wouldn't reccomend Dominique's on Magazine to anyone is to selfishly save a table for me.

    Dominique's on Magazine is always excellent., so it is surprising that I have a few minor complaints to register this time. Two of us at our table ordered the jerked pork chop. The flavor was there, but both our pork chops were over-cooked. One of us had the prawns and complained that they were also overcooked. This is not the norm for this restaurant. Maybe we should have specified that we wanted the "medium," but weren't asked and just assumed it would be. The desserts were a little on the small side. The trio of ice creams appeared to have been dipped with a melon-baller and the banana cream "pie" was in a container about the size of a shot glass, but were still delicious. Everything else was excellent, as usual.

    Spent 4 days in New Orleans my first night had dinner at Dominique's on Magazine they truly have a full comprehension of fantastic service ,outstanding food and attention to detail our waiter ( Michael ) was so passionately knowledgeable about the Restaurant and the region it only enhanced our overall experience and to be treated to a full tour front and back of the house was excellent. The kitchen was spotless and we were in on the back end of service. They have made the MUST do list for New Orleans for my guests and myself.

    We really loved Dominique's...the service was outstanding and the food was excellant except unfortunately, I had a very dry piece of fish but the crab salad I had beforehand and my husband's soft shell crab insures that we will be back. I would just be leary of the fish if you order it but it may have just been a one time thing. I would defintely recommend this restaurant.

    Every course was superior and priced very reasonably for the high level of cuisine. Service, however, was a little amatuerish. Our server was very nice, and checked on us appropriately. However, we had to pour our own water, and long-ago finished cocktails sat on the table even after wine was served, picked up finally during dessert. The first wine pour was way short, followed by an enormous pour. Overall, though, the entire meal was wonderful. I am sure the server just needs a little polishing.

    I am looking forward to dining here again. I had the shortribs served over vegetable puree, which is low carb and a rare find for this city. It was totally delicious and who knew I liked rutabaga puree with a red wine reduction? The shrimp remoulade served in a large basil leaf was quite nice and delightfully different. This is a wonderful menu.My dinner partner had the wagu beef meatballs with pasta which was scrumptous. And he had the pecan tart which he said was very, very nice. Our waiter was very polite, knowledgeable and prompt- no waiting around for anything. The decor is subtle but elegant, with marble tables and soft lighting- I would say comfortable and sophisticated.

    We went to Dominique's for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. They started our meal with complimentary sparking wine in the beautiful "secret garden." We were seated in the outside dining area where there are amazing vertical herb gardens. There was lively music playing, but soft enough it was easy to converse. The service was very good. The food was excellent. At one point, the chef came out back to snip some fresh herbs from the garden. We only walked through the inside dining area, but I noticed they had a nice bar area that would be perfect to stop for appetizers and drinks one evening when we don't want a full meal. I look forward to going back.

    We had been to Dominique's 8 months prior to this visit and had a wonderful time - we loved the service, the food, and the drinks. We decided to eat here again when we were celebrating and our experience was dramatically different. We were seated in the worst table in the restaurant when there were other tables available (and the other tables stayed available all night). Our server largely ignored us the entire night in order to fawn over the table of 5 behind us. We waited for drinks/water while our server passed by our table and saw that we had finished our drinks, and we waited long stretches to order food and dessert. Very disappointed - spoke to the manager after: all he said was it was jazz fest and they were busy. No real apology.

    Appetizers were wonderfully flavorful. Main course specials were very good and portions ample. Steak was overlooked and had to be returned. Rare seems a simple concept and the restaurant was not that busy. Waiter started off great then was less attentive and not that busy. Left before ordering dessert because he was so long in returning to the table. I think it was a bit pricey considering the service and chef mistakes.
