It is kind of heartbreaking to go to this 'nice' restaurant but have it be completely empty at lunch time. Then I understood why, the menu is very limited, not well balanced and then some of the things on the menu were not even available.
It is closed for "renovations". They are still accepting reservations on here, so we made reservations and drove all the way there to see it shuttered. Poor management, if any still exist.
I had high hopes for the restaurant since it was recommended to us by a local, but I ended up being very disappointed. The service wasn't great. The server didn't seem at all familiarr with the menu, and she kept referring to us as "guys ". We ordered an unimpressive calamari appetizer and a plate of assorted tuna sashimi. The tuna was frozen in the center! We also had tempura seafood that was very disappointing. Maybe I'm spoiled coming from San Francisco where there are tons of really good restaurants, But we wanted to give this place a chance. I wouldn't return though.
I walked in at 8pm and literally was the only person dining in the restaurant. My friends showed up a few minutes later and it felt like we rented out the place to ourselves. I ordered the Linguine w clams and it was one of the worst dishes I've ever had and that's typically one of my favorite pasta dishes. It literally tasted like noodles a sea water. It was nasty. They were nice enough to take the dish back and I ordered the bolognese instead which was a lot better, but not great. The location and decor was quite nice and there was a pianist playing jazz songs the whole night which was lovely.
This is absolutely perfect Italian restaurant. With food option you rarely get elsewhere like rabbit, boar.
New menu which is extraordinary. All of our dishes were delicious! Eggplant appetizer was superb. I had the pasta special (veal pappalarde), and my wife had the butternut squash ravioli which was one of the best dishes I have ever tasted. Loved it!
Great food, atmosphere and service!
I was very impressed with the quality of the food which was reasonably priced.
Pulled up to the valet and waited close to ten minutes and left to park myself. Once inside there was no one there. No one. I realize it was Monday night, but at 7:00 pm it was striking. Took a while before getting a server. Service remained a bit slow. Food was decent but unremarkable in a town wit a lot of great Italian food. Atmosphere is great, though. Beautiful hard wood floors. Lovely piano in the middle of the room. Showed promise for cocktails at night if they ever attract a crowd.
Great food! Had Caesar salad, burratta and bacon pizza, mushroom ravioli and pork chop! All excellent!
I enjoyed a lunch at Doma last Thursday with two business associates. It was exactly what the doctor ordered. The food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the pizza....any of them. Then we each had a different salad. I had a caesar salad with chicken and one of my friend's had the caesar with shrimp. My salad was dressed just the right amount, and the chicken was tender. Everyone remarked on how good the food was, so I felt great about having made a good pick. The service was friendly, efficient and totally non-invasive, which is how it should be for business. Looking forward to going back and trying some of the other items.
The good: the food was decent. Not really creative but not a terrible meal either.
Bad: our waiter could've cared less that we were even there. There was no real effort to welcome us. Or even show us that we were guests. The restaurant itself desperately needs updating as they were sweat stains on my seat. That was the overall vibe. I guess I expected better from Beverly Hills.
We had a great time. You can have a conversation, food was good.
This was our second visit to Doma in two months. The first was for our anniversary, and the recent visit was for my birthday. Once again they did not disappoint us. The food is amazing and served in a beautiful atmosphere. As well, they are very friendly and make you feel right at home. We definitely plan on going back.
Very handsome room, superb food and service. The excellent pianist playing American songbook standards was a delightful surprise.
Excellent service, great ambiance, good food! My girlfriend and I enjoyed our six course prix fixe new year's' eve dinner. The gentle man who was tending us was very friendly, helpful, and has great demeanor. Please extend our kindest appreciation for the excellent service he had provided. The background music (piano) was good, but the singer was a bit much at times (can do without, no offense to your talent). Wine pairing was good. Price of $55 per person excellent!! We will definitely come back and recommend this place! Thank you for such a lovely evening! - E. & R.
Great food & service in a low key but quietly elegant setting. You can actually hear each other talk while enjoying your meal. Fish is especially good.
Excellent! The food and service here is always great!
My coworkers and I love it here.
DOMA never disappoints!
Have now had one dinner and two lunches at Doma. The food and service have been consistent, which is to say, very good. The waiters are friendly without being annoying. The food is very good - Doma makes its own pasta. Nice wine selection. The outdoor dining area provides a people watching opportunity in the heart of Beverly Hills.
Now that Stefano has taken the reins in running DOMA, it has gotten so much better. It is now a FIRST CLASS restaurant. Great food, menu and service.
