My only critique was that
My only critique was that the waiter forgot an item that I had ordered to take home, so we had to wait for that to be cooked toward the end of the dinner. But, the staff was courteous and the food was better than expected!

Good Italian in Downtown Clayton
A window table view of Shaw Park added to our Italian meal at Dominic's Trattoria. Owners were wandering around and seemed genuinely pleased we'd made the effort to go out to eat on the eve of the big snowstorm. Menu offered many choices of mostly Southern Italian cooking. The prices and portions were very reasonable.

Very good food and excellent
Very good food and excellent service. As others have said, the decor could use some updating and the crowd skews old, but we will definitely be going back!

We have been to Dominic's on the hill, the Trattoria is just as good, and a little less expensive.

Quiet but good food.
Went here for a business dinner on a Wednesday night. The restaurant was very quiet with older clientele. The food was outstanding. Service was good, but the waitress spilled red wine on a female quest of mine and never even offered an apology.

Amazing family dinner
We had a great time. The lobster fettuccine was delicious, as well as the wild mushroom risotto.

We had salmon for dinner that was a little dry but the other fish was wonderful. One of us had the linguine and he loved it. We will return on our next visit to the area.

Our waitress failed to come
Our waitress failed to come back and check on us and we had to hunt her down to get the check. The food was great as usual.

A restaurant of substance!
A restaurant of substance! My husband and I had a leisurely lunch at Dominic's in Clayton several years ago when we were visiting St. Louis (I'm origiinally from St. Louis and wanted my husband to experience the wonderful tradition of "The Hill" restaurants. My sisters and I recently had an opportunity to spend some time together in St. Louis and there was only one restaurant we considered -- Dominics! We weren't disappointed. Thank you so much for a lovely evening. Everything was perfection!

Will be back
The menu options were numerous and the food and drinks were excellent. The Caprese salad was one of the best I have ever tasted. Service was a little slow but our waitress was extremely personable.

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the food we had. The wait staff was friendly and fast. Overall, a great experience.

Enjoyable evening in St Louis
We haven't been back to St Louis in a year and half but my family still wanted to go to Dominic's. The food was super and everyone had a great evening. We will be back.

the food was exceptional. Specials were great including the pasta with cream sauce, lobster, asparagus. the desert special with vanilla ice cream, and almonds smelled delicious, looked decadent but was very light; just right dessert.

Great Dining Experience
Excellent food, top notch service and a quite romantic ambience.

Everything was excellent other than the fact Open Table stated it to be $$, when in fact the food was very pricey.
side salad was $9, salmon plate was $25.. Not a $$ place.

Took my wife here for our 1 year anniversary. The staff was great. Food was spectacular. The owner/manager even met us as we were leaving to ask how our meal was. I can't wait to go back again.

Go for the food
Food and service are wonderful. Traditional Italian fare the way Momma used to make it. Delicious. Friendly staff. If you're looking for an "energetic" crowd, this isnt the place for you . "Cocoon" comes to mind. A turn off was the smell of cigarette smoke in the entryway and as you enter the bar area. It is non-smoking, but they really need to replace carpeting and have the place de-smoked. For the $$$, they can afford to do this. Having said this, the restaurant area was fine. But upon entering, I almost expected Dean Martin to come sliding down a pole and start crooning. We will go again as the food was wonderful. Won't wear nice clothes as we dont care to bring the tobacco smell back home with us.

Liked by all
We were a group of 6 women in town for a local wedding. This was one of the few restaurants that had a time and table for our size group so I booked it not knowing anything about it. It turned out that we thought this meal was better than the one served at the wedding the next night! Service was excellent, food was very, very good (most had pasta and really enjoyed it) and the overall cost was reasonable. The restaurant was very accommodating in trying to help us get a cab and the valet was particularly nice to chat with. Overall, everyone in the group praised the choice I made and I was very satisfied with how the evening turned out. I would recommend the restaurant again.

Food was fine, well prepared
Food was fine, well prepared and presented.
Service problem when a wait person began clearing our table before we received our main courses (too long between courses as well)
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Cannot wait to come back -- from the moment the valet took the keys everything was perfect -- service, ambiance, quality of food. I had their special that night -- pasta in olive oil & garlic BUT it also had THE MOST TENDER and tasty lobster ever!!!!!

A real treat
We very much enjoyed our visit to Dominick's in Clayton. The restaurant is beautiful, the service excellent, and the food delicious. Not inexpensive, but worth the very reasonable prices.

A trip to the St Louis area between Thanksgiving and Christmas has become a tradition. We bring our three daughters (aged 12, 14, 25) and my sister for Galleria shopping and a Broadway musical at the Fabulous Fox. A real treat of the trip is dinner at Dominic's with a view from our table of the outdoor skaters at the Shaw Park ice rink. The food and service at Dominic's is always outstanding!
