The Dome reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Reserved a table in advance
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/5/2013
    Reserved a table in advance for a surprise birthday dinner on a Friday night. Ordered the $290 royal caviar for the birthday boy, as well as three orders of the $40 caviar for the table, and four bottles of $40 champagne. The guests (12 people) then each ordered their own dinners. Friday ladies get free champagne after midnight. The four bottles ran out at 11:30. On a $640 table tab, along with whatever each of my guests got on their own, this lovely establishment wouldn't start the complimentary champagne 30 minutes early. Won't be going back.

Dinner was fabulous - sliders, lemonfish, ceviche, truffle fries - all YUM!! Dessert was a heavenly 3-layer chocolate creation w/ coconut ice cream. Can't wait to go back!!

    They mean well but it still feels a bit amateurish. The food is OK, but this is the second time we go and the champagne was warm again, which was a big turn off. Funny enough the waiter pushed back to the point that my wife insisted he should try it. You can tell there's no team work between the waiters and overall the service leaves a lot to be desired. From our perspective this was the second and last chance. I really doubt we will be back. We can always buy a can of caviar and eat it at home, where our champagne is always cold!

    Interesting restaurant, with a very eco-friendly theme. They tend to over-emphasize that theme, and it borders on too trendy (ipads instead of menus . . . an eco-friendly ventilation system that requires that they keep it freezing! inside on a beautiful 70 degree evening). Food was good but not necessarily worth the price. The small plates are truly small.

    A most unique Venue. Their Website and Yelp don't do them justice on the Interior. I and a date had a most unique experiance. Presentation of the Food starts from IPAD's which add color and reality to the board of fare.

Cerviche. We had their sampler platter which was simply amazing. I was not that big of a fan of Cerviche, but now I am, as long as I order it from 'The Dome' The Chef sent us out two amazing surprises. 'Plantain Croquets' which we devoured.

    We love the food at this restaurant and generally recommend it. However, some of our friends which have gone our recommendation have a major sticking point--which is the charge for the water which should be free as in every place in the Gables. No other quality restaurant in Coral Gables does it and its a shame they are turning away clients for such a petty charge. This is what separates good restaurants (Dome) from the 5-star restaurants in the Gables.

    We went to The Dome to celebrate my daughter's 18th Birthday. It was a Thursday and the restaurant was virtually empty. However the food and the service were outstanding. The decor is interesting. Loved the Ipad menus. I look forward to returning. Hope more people in Coral Gables support this woman owned restaurant.

    Great décor and I love the sustainability aspect. On the night we went it was an off night so the place was not crowded. Thus, we enjoyed great attention and the food was great. You can order off an iPad which is a great thing because you can actually see what the dish will look like, and it does not disappoint. I will go back, it's very good.

    Their eclectic fusion food is superb. Kudos to the chef for the yuca croquettes, definitely amazing. Also love the Ipad menus--nice touch. The glassware & place settings are beautiful. Wine list is good even though they have raised the prices substantially since opening. Gone is the affordable Rose which was a highlight & a perfect match to some of the foods. The service is just ok-- a big negative is they slap you with a ridiculous 'water' fee in a city where the water is excellent (& free). And no prior disclosure --they serve you the water without asking & then tack it on to your bill. We didn't realize it until later..Shame on the Dome for being petty! BTW Spice Menu isn't a bargain either--price it out & u will see..

    We enjoyed the ambiance and creative decor of The Dome. The Gazpacho was below par (we sent it back) but the other dishes were quite tasty. They had something for everyone - Vegans, Pescatarians, and regular foodies! The chef was willing to prepare the meals anyway you liked. Great wine selection,as well. A great place to try, something different!

    Most of the food was great!! The ambiance and the music was great as well. We all really enjoyed it. Our only complaint is how long it took to get our drinks, especially being that we were the table closest to the bar. Our food was arriving and we had to receive, not only our cocktails, but also our regular tap water! I had a big problem with that. Slightly overpriced for the food but not enough to be upset about. We definitely recommend ordering lots of the appetizers and small plates as opposed to the entrees.

    The food was good, the service good but slow. The three of us ordered a cocktail, and they brought out one at a time with minutes in between. I think on busy evenings like Friday it was necessary to have another waiter as ours seemed to be the only one there and therefore service was a little slow.

    Dined on 8/2/2012
    This is a rather unusual dining spot with a look and feel of a long, narrow lounge/bar more than restaurant. We went for "Spice" and the dishes were all correct though nothing stood out as tasting superb other than the Key Lime pie. The concept of having the menu delivered on iPad's is more bothersome than practical and gives the impression that they are trying just a bit too hard to be hip. The adjacent bar crowd ambience was boisterous but often annoying for dining conversation. There are many small bites on their happy hour menu. If we return, we would opt for drinks and tapas at the bar, but not an all out dinner.

    Everything was great. The only item that I would improve on is the Cuban slider. Since I have been a fan of the Cuban sandwich and the Cuban sandwich since I was a kid (I am 68 now), I would fill it up a little more, and when warming it make it little less warm inside. It should be warm, but mine was hoit and the high temperature changes the flavors inside. Everything else was outstanding. Congratulations.

    I think that the concept is good but the food falls short. The arroz con pollo was dry and too salty. The best thing we had were the croquettes but again nothing to write home about. It is obvious the owners are trying to please and the staff although very nice removed plates way too quickly and the restauarant wasn't even full. It is bad form to remove plates while some people at the table are still eating.
