About Doma na rohu
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.

Doma na rohu Ratings and Reviews
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.
Variety of brats/sausages are delicious.
Latkes just like my mother made.
Not greasy, just yummy.
Excellent selection of beers, draughts very tasty.
Service very friendly/responsive/attentive despite place being crowded
And the prices are really very reasonable, given portion size, mand as noted the delicious food.
Come here frequently/will continue to do so.
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.
Lugar sencillo. Sabor de platillos bueno. El personal muy amable y dispuesto a atender nuestras peticiones personales, la pasamos muy bien. Es una opción aceptable si se está en la zona y se desea comida del Este de Europa. Es un lugar discreto.
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....
This small place is friendly and welcoming and there are some very good dishes. We especially liked the German potato salad, the spaetzle, and the sausage and pretzel combo. We tried the veal schnitzel, but it was dry and disappointing. But, we will go back.
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.
I've walked by this place dozens of times, admiring its cute outdoor seating and seemingly happy patrons. It's nice for a drink but the food just wasn't good. Maybe if you stick to happy hour warm pretzels but aside from the sausage, nothing we got was very good. There are too many places in the area, go someplace else
After reserving for Valentine's Day, and calling that day to confirm that we would be able to order from the regular menu, we were told upon arrival that only a "special" Valentine's Day menu for $60 pp would be served that evening. We left without eating, angry and disappointed.
