About

Old World meets True Village in this charming, reasonably-priced restaurant featuring the best foods of Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and Hungary.
Favorites include the Beef Gulash, Saffron Chicken Paprikash, Pork Schnitzel with Lingonberries and grilled specialties, including the standout hangar steak and the Sausage Platter. The well-rounded wine list includes wonderful Austrian and German wines, as well as some excellent French, Italian and Californian vintages. The tap beer selection includes Czech, German and Austrian beers, as well as a few local brews done in the Old World style.
Masterfully designed to evoke the Old World while still feeling totally Village, the space lives up to its name. Doma means "At Home on the Corner," and the German light fixtures, reclaimed wood wainscoting, plaster walls, old Slovak prints and photographs are just what you imagine Great-Grandma grew up seeing in the Old Country. Or sit outside for a view of Village Life.

Shhhh
Don’t tell anyone
This is a GREAT place!
But if everyone knew about it, it would lose its charm
So go with your friends but don’t tell anyone else

What makes it so special?
How many French bistros are there in NYC? How many make you feel like you’re really in France? Probably none.

Doma na rohu makes you feel like you’re really in Berlin or Prague. And the food is delicious and the staff is great.

So go (and once you’ve gone, you’ll go back). But don’t tell anyone because you won’t be able to get in, it’s that good.

We live in Greenwich Village and Doma Na Rohu has quickly become one of our favorite "go to" restaurants for both lunch and dinner. The food is consistently delicious, the portions generous, and the service very good. The menu offers Hungarian/Czech/German fare with a slant towards a healthier style of preparation. The ambience is cozy and ranges from quiet during the week day (perfect for a relaxing lunch) to lively on weekend evenings. We have taken several friends to Doma and all have been extremely pleased with the dining experience.

We love Czech/Eastern European food and stumbled on this place while out in the city with our tween/teen daughters during a day of Christmas shopping. The food was really tasty - just like mom used to make -- goulash, dumplings, sausages, schnitzel - perfect for a chilly evening. Our server was attentive and kindly responded enthusiastically with champagne when our girls asked for something special to help toast our 17th anniversary. Go -- you'll find a new favourite.

I had to find a new place for my husband's birthday... He is particular with his food - conservative in his taste, European only cuisine. He was talking a lot about Austria - Hungarian Empire lately so when I saw the place serving Czech, Hungarian, and German food I knew I found a winner. And it was -- with eight of us celebrating we shared all interesting appetizers and main courses, had wonderful drinks to everyone's taste -- but were too full to try a dessert.
Bacon wrapped plumb and knedlicky were the winners but the rest of the food was wonderful too.

Based on the website, this restaurant seemed to be full of Eastern European promise -- but it fell short of expectations. The online menu had not been updated, and so staple favorites like chicken paprikas or weiner schnitzel were not on the menu. Other favorites like stuffed peppers were on the menu but not available. The food alternatives selected on the menu were a blandly disappointing, and lacking authenticity. The interior was a little too noisy for relaxed casual conversation -- I think the acoustics were off and it added up to being a little too boisterous. Wait staff tried hard to deliver great service. But overall the experience was average -- not great.

We needed a reasonably priced, pre-theater meal in the West Village. Doma na Rohu more than filled the bill. Excellent saurkraut, bratworst, German potato salad, excellent selection of beers, dry reisling at happy hour prices. It's a little shabby, but very comfortable and the staff was very helpful. I highly recommend it.

Looking for a place for dinner before a performance at Cherry Lane Theatre nearby. Food was good and staff was very friendly and accommodating. We both enjoyed the dumplings appetizer and a couple of the meat entrees. Good hearty food in the czech/german style. The bar seemed lively and cozy though it gets pretty noisy. Would recommend it for people who want an authentic old-world-type place in the Village.

The food was awful.
Turkey schnitzel was a pale color, thick, tasteless.
Boar's shank like Rover's toy bone and inedible.
The pretzel was right out of the frozen food aisle at Gristede's but cost over $6.
Very disappointed.

We ordered the feast for two. You're much better off getting individual meals and sides. If we hadn't ordered some starters, we would have been very hungry. Not sure if they were understaffed or if we just had a bad server, but getting someone's attention and water wasn't as easy as it should be. The food was okay. I especially liked the cheesy spätzle. I would consider eating here again if I were in the neighborhood and they maintain their "A". I did like the fact that you can order the discounted happy hour items at a table (you don't have to be seated at the bar).

Basically the food here is heavy--sausages--and the like. Not much healthy on the menu so I doubt I'd go back. It's like a million other NYC places and therefore nothing special unless you like heavy Slavic/German food. That puts it at least a cut above most bar food places but not by much.

We were sitting near a table of very loud diners and I asked the waitress if we could move because two members of our party were hard of hearing. She said okay after another table was cleaned off but then did nothing. So not great service....

As far as German food goes, this place was very good. We started off with the Bavarian pretzels, and they were excellent. For main course, I had the sausages and they were good, though the duck one was not as good as the Weisswurst and Kielbasa. And the apple strudel dessert was the best I've had in a long, time. I would definitely return and try the other apps and entrees....

They have a nice mix of Central European food, that is well prepared and reasonably priced. The portions are generous. Service can be a bit lax, as can the parents of the children they bring to the restaurant. I need to remember to go later. It is the typical scenario where the parents want a night out and are too cheap to hire a baby dirtier, or feel too guilty to leave the kids home with a sitter and let the kids make noise and act out. Something I was never allowed to do as a child.

Very cozy restaurant with delicious foods. Nice variety of German and Czech foods. Dinner for 4 (no appetizers or dessert) with 1 drink each came out to $120 total. We tried the goulash, salmon, brisket and a lentil mushroom burger - all were delicious. The side dishes were a little on the small side, but equally yummy - we had the cheese spaetzle, latkes and a vegetable mix.

We were a bit chilly when people came/left the restaurant as we were right next to the door - but no drafts when the door was closed.

We will be back!

With such a wide variety of small plates and delicious sides, we shared one main dish, 2 sides, 1 sausage and a small plate. It was a bit too much food but we enjoyed every bite. I was excited to try the elk special. It is unusual to find elk in New York. It was perfectly prepared with a nice side of scalloped potatoes. The spaetzle and red cabbage sides are spot on. This is a great neighborhood restaurant and I'll certainly go back regularly.
