While I, personally like a more upbeat atmosphere and found this to be slow and stuffy, the other three people who were dining with me all loved it. The food was excellent and the service perfect!

As always Dominic's is a great spot for that special night or a wonderful business dinner. Dominic himself always stops by to visit us at the table. His genuine warmth and charm are second to none. We try to get there for dinner once every two months, but decided that once a month is our new goal. That may not be enough. Keep up the great work! Love the place!

My father was at one time the "World's Most Travelled Man" according to the Guiness Book of World Records, and he loved fine dining even before it became a national trend. He used to say that Dominic's on the Hill was not only the best Italian restaurant in the U.S. but the best Italian restaurant in the world. Living out of state I had never had the pleasure of eating here until recently, and I was not disappointed. The neighborhood is a treasure, the staff top notch, and the food is wonderful. A truly classy establishment does everything to make you feel welcome and taken care of, and Dominic's does this in a way you do not see as often as you should these days.

We went for our anniversary. It was such a wonderful experience. The service was fantastic. Even though the restaurant was full, it was quiet to where my husband and I could enjoy each other's company.

dinner for 6 at 7.
As an out of towner, this isn't my first visit and won't be my last. Great place for a business dinner as well as a romantic experience for two. Quiet, elegant as well as warm. This is the classiest Italian restaurant I have been to. Not really a good place for kids or loud parties. Upper scale service and dressy attire. Business casual would be fine. There was 6 in our party and not one person was not verry happy with the meal and experience.
Good wine list, but not great. Wine list could be larger.

Mothers Day Celebration
We chose Dominic for the quality of the food and their menu. It was our second time, and we loved it again.

If you want to impress someone....
Dominic's was amazing. We went there with a large group of 16 and enjoyed excellent food, and even better service.
Waiters and waitresses quietly filled water glasses and ferried away used plates without interruption, but had detailed responses to any of the questions we asked. The food was bought out and set next to our table, then plates were warmed over open flames, 4 at a time and then we were served. For dessert, they were also made over a flame, table-side. Try the Valentino (oranges and strawberries caramelized with cognac).
As we ate dessert, the owner came and talked to our table for a bit, then graced us with a lovely serenade. Outstanding!
Staff, food and atmosphere were tops.

Great Italian food, the restaurant is ran just the way I would run a restaurant myself.
We never waited for a refill, the food was delicious, and the service was
excellent. We had a relaxing and enjoyable time from the moment
we arrived till we departed.

As great as we have heard.
The service, ambience and food was outstanding. As soon as we walked in we felt like family. The servers were very helpful with suggestions and explainitions of different dishes. It was a perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary, but we will come back for other occasions - like just wanting an excellent meal in a great atmosphere.

From the ambience, to the great scotch selection, to the FOOD, this place could not have been better. Have tried a couple of other places on The Hill, but if good atmosphere and great food are at the top of your list, this is it.

Great dining experience on The Hill
Had a late reservation since all our party couldn't get in town early. Staff very personable yet professional. Wonderful mussels and snails with artichokes were amazing. All pastas were very fresh and the seafood choices were outstanding. My husband ordered the veal chop and it was delicious. Loved the experience and even had Dominic come by and talk to us. Will go again!
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reviews sounded good. Was not disappointed. Always an appreciated touch when the owner visits the table to check on the meal and service.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome, but value??
This place is expensive. To be fair, it doesn't pretend not to be. I typically enjoy the higher end restaurants and I don't mind paying more for ambiance, service, and the exclusion of "riff-raff" that typically comes with the more moderately priced establishments, but a little MORE than half a grand for 6 people people eating an appetizer, pasta, and dessert, with a few drinks a piece is difficult to justify. I'm sure that would explain the empty dining room on a weekend night, while a few of the more middle-of-the-road restaurants in the Hill that night were packed when we drove by. I can't complain about anything else though. I will be back, but it will be a while, and it will certainly be a special occassion.

They were not busy as it was a weeknight. So it was quieter I think. We were entertaining guests from Texas and wanted a fine steak and really good Italian. Dominics always delivers the best!,,i had the scallops which were superb and the steak was, of course, perfect. The waiter even overheard our guest wish my husband a happy birthday and to our surprise brought a complimentary desset. What class. Dominic even visited our table which was a nice touch.

A St. Louis Classic
Returned to Dominics to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. As always, it was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed an excellent Veal dish while Kelly raved about the Lobster Alla Gusta. The service was excellent as always. I would highly recommend Dominic's for an intimate meal including wonderful food and service.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Attentive service, nice, old school italian ambience, and terrific high class italian food; great pasta dishes you can order as an appetizer or entree, veal you can cut with a fork. Sauces are all home made, not overly salty, and beautifully plated. The owner made tableside zabaglione with fresh berries for dessert. Overall one ofthe best italian restaurants in a city known for them

Dominic's Restaurant on "The Hill" in south St. Louis is exceptional. The food literally melts in your mouth. Calming atmosphere, romantic, beautiful decor, no improvements needed. Matthew and Crystal were our servers and they were outstanding! Crystal brought Italian wedding cake to our table with a candle lit for our anniversary. A very nice touch indeed. i highly recommended this restaurant especially for a special occasion.

Outstanding Food and Service
We chose Dominics for our Anniversary dinner after reading all of the gushing, five star reviews. We were not disappointed. The staff was incredibly attentive and had excellent recommendations on the menu and wine list. The food was outstanding and truly melted in our mouths. Needless to say, we will be back.

delicious homemade italian
This was a gem! Home made tortellini, fabulous service, my water glass was never empty. A little pricey, but considering the authentic food and the fact that it was all fresh, a good value.

Staff at Dominic's is very attentive and no detail was overlooked during our recent dining experience. Our meal was excellent. This is a special occasion restaurant due to price and dress code.

Authentic Italian in the Lou / Hill
I grew up on the Hill in St Louis, but this was my first time at Dominic's. Cousins from MN came in to visit & wanted Osso Busco on the Hill. 1st restaurant in my google search to pop up. Must admit I always heard about Dominic's, it's truly the best hidden gem of a restaurant hidden on the Hill. The food, service, & ambiance were extraordinary to say the least & a definite must experience if you live in the Lou!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We truly enjoyed a wonderful evening at Dominic's--a must for anyone visiting St. Louis!

My wife and I enjoyed a special dinner at Dominic's. Everything I have heard was true, starting with the atmosphere and including the great food and excellent service. We never felt rushed nor did we feel anything was slow. Just a great experience.

Open on Monday
A quant restaurant on The Hill that is related to the more well know Dominic's in Clayton. This wonderful restaurant was open, although quite, on a Monday night so that we could celebrate our anniversary. It has a wonderful ambiance and a great feel. The food was awesome and the service was great.

Food and service were very good, although it was pricier than we expected given the $$ rating on OpenTable. Wine list was reasonably priced, at least their list of "house" wines.
