My girlfriends and I enjoyed
My girlfriends and I enjoyed our Restaurant Week specials, which were served with a generous glass of wine. Our waitress was personable, prompt, friendly, and offerred excellent suggestions. The sauces were unique and I loved my gemelli, a shrimp pasta dish, that was so generous I took home some of it, so that I would have room for the tiramisu-excellent!

Best place for atmosphere
My husband and I have been going to D'Amato's for years, we even had our rehersal dinner here. Any occasion is never a disappointment. They deliver excellent service, excellent food, and a wonderful ambiance. Will continue going here for years to come

service was very friendly
service was very friendly and attentive. they turned down the music per our request, as it was too loud overhead. Had the Easter buffet - good food and variety - somewhat overpriced - would be nice to offer a discount for seniors.

D'Amato's has awesome waiters!
Our waiter was awesome - he spent time talking to us about the restaurant, and we exchanged ideas of how to get more business thru advertising in local papers. We were offered "Endless Mimosas" which was really great. Food was excellent. The only reason we do not give it 5 stars is because the interior is very outdated, flooring needs repair/refinishing. With a little facelift, the place could be a great R.O. gem.

On our regular rotation now
We really like the food here. It is nice to have dinner with some drinks and quality entrees for less than $100. Our favorites are the scallops and filet. Each is prepared uniquely with interesting sauces and sides.

A Happy Meal
The food was good and the servers were attentive. The wine list is extensive providing a wide price range. If I had to be critical of any point it would be the menu. It offered a narrow selection of meals. However, overall we really enjoyed our visit and would return again.

Another great meal with some
Another great meal with some great wine to go with it. We loved the Margarhita pizza, which may be the best in town. Also, the salmon was perfectly prepared and delicious and the eggplant dish is hearty and flavorful. The Caesar salad is so good and Allison, our server, always makes us feel comfortable and special.

After a small blip recently,
After a small blip recently, the chef is solid and the food is back to it's former luster. The Margarita pizza is amazing and the fish dishes shine. I loved the salmon and the halibut also looked divine. The eggplant entree is a great vegetarian choice and is tasty by any standards. The Caesar salad is also flavorful--garlicky and tart. The wine choices are interesting and affordable and the wait staff is knowledgable and friendly. We particularly love Allison, who always steers us in the right direction and is always attentive. This is one of our go-to spots that always makes us feel welcome and satisfied.

One of my favorite places
One of my favorite places for brunch, the donuts are the BEST. The Red Hot Sugar Daddies were a great addition to the ambiance. My only critique is our server stopped tending to our table after the meal and bill, but we wanted stay and have more drinks while watching the band.

It was our first time there and we were not disppointed. Had the Marguerita as an appetizer to share, great. Brisket and Chickem parm were very good. Great service. They have a good wine list, but as an Italian restaurant they should also have Italian wines by the glass. Manager came by and greeted us.

Excellent service and great ambiance. Salmon, swordfish and lobster tails dishe were fab. We all loved the pasta palomino sauce -- has a fun little "kick!"

Great Birthday Dinner
This was my first time dining here and it won't be my last. Both my guest and I enjoyed our dining experience. We couldn't stop talking about the meal...it was delicious. I loved it.

Classy but relaxed atmosphere. Food has never been disappointing. Hopefully new ownership will maintain quality and price structure. great place for after theater desserts and drinks. . Experienced a Sunday Brunch with some little ones with selections to accommodate their appetites. The children also enjoyed the little jazz group (the adults as well). D'Amato well worth a try !!

Service was Super
Not only was the food very good, but the service was exceptional. Our waiter suggested food and wine choices to fit our needs, and was not pushing the most expensive menu item. We requested a glass of wine and he suggested something he thought was even better at the same price and he was right! It was a fun and pleasant experience.

Food and Service are superb
The resturant was candle light and had a nice atmosphere. The service was less attentive at first so the manager stepped in and gave impeccable service along with our waiter, there were other groups there also.I will go back and everyone enloyed the food. No complaints.

Surf and Turf value
On Tuesdays, D'Amato's has a $50 surf and turf for two with a bottle of their pinot noir house wine. It includes a very nice salad and a desert to share. Super deal, plus good food and service. The restaurant has new owners who are doing their best to attract new customers with well prepared food and good value. We had a great time!

This was my first time at D'Amato's and will be going back for sure. It was girls night out and there were 4 very different food type and each of of loved everything we got. Started with the light homemade potato chips, great caesar salad and cooked perfect filet, super tender. There was no room for dessert so I will have to try it again for that.

Can't beat the 2 for 1 dinner.
We went to D'Amato's for the Tuesday night 2 for 1 dinner deal. Food was excellent and the included bottle of wine was surprisingly good. I also liked their offer to credit the cost of the bottle if we wanted to change to a different wine. We'll go back for a regular dinner and also plan to try their happy hour.

Great service and food. We went on a Tuesday evening and the special was petite filet and lobster tail served with a house salad, side of pasta, bottle of wine and dessert. Great value for two people $50. The dinner included a bottle of red wine and we asked if we could change it to a white wine - no problem - no additional charge. We ordered our filet medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. Everything was delicious. The dessert was a fantastic cream filled pizzele and a cannoli.

Great Neighborhood Gem
My partner and I received a coupon to D'Amato's in the mail, and we also were referred to the restaurant by our neighbors, so we decided to check it out. I have to say that we had a great meal. We ordered the Atlantic Salmon and Honey Peppered Angus Beef Brisket. The salmon was well cooked and accompanied with a fennel and radish citrus salad, which was light and refreshing. It was also served with a side of penne pasta with Mrs. P's Palimino sauce (we were told it was the owner's mother's recipe), which was a rich, creamy tomato sauce. The beef brisket was delicious and was accompanied by marscopone orzo mac 'n cheese, which was light and slightly sweet. It was a well balanced plate. Both entrees were served with a generous house salad.

D'Amato's is a wonderful establishment for both social as well as special occasions. Definitely check out the Tuesday Surf n Turf special. Good food, Good service, Great price.

New owner great food if you haven't tried it your missing out!
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
We think the Margherita pizza
We think the Margherita pizza is the best in town , with Wino Wednesday, what could be bad?? Loved the stuffed eggplant and pork tenderloin, too. It's definitely out "Go To" restaurant.

D'Amato's will be your favorite!
One of the real benefits of living in Royal Oak is having D'Amato's right around the corner. The food is consistently wonderful and the service is great! Even though it is a popular destination, you never feel rushed and the staff makes you feel as if you are the only table in the restaurant.

I love going to both D'Amatos
I love going to both D'Amatos and Good Night Gracies. I am so happy that they have gluten free items on the menu and the chicken marsala was delicious. I also love the great martinis and good vibe at Gracies.
