    Our visit every year on our anniversary was more memorable this year with Dominic singing a beautiful love song in Italian with his amazing voice. Food was amazing as always with Gino and staff providing great service and Joe taking care of us by sitting us at our favorite table. Always a wonderful time.

    We were very satisfied with the food. Waiter did a nice job, but wasn't particularly friendly. The girl serving drinks and bread was very pleasant. A bit disappointed that other diners chose to dress in destroyed Jeans and Tshirts. Overall we had a nice dinner.

    My filet was tender with a delicious sauce. My friend's halibut had a strong smell and a mushy texture. They replaced it with salmon which was overcooked and dry. On the plus side we were not charged for her meal

    It has been many years since I visited Dominic’s (it was my favorite St Louis restaurant when I traveled there for business), so when I was recently in town for pleasure I was excited to dine here again. The menu and its execution was as excellent as I remembered. It has a fantastic wine list with wines at all price points. Our waiter was personable and informative. The interior is some what dated but nostalgic as is Dominic overseeing operations from a bar stool While the atmosphere is formal we did not feel uncomfortable in casual attire nor did we feel we needed to be reserved. The quality and freshness of this restaurant’s take on classic Italian dishes reinforced my pleasant memories from the past

    The tables were spread out, the noise level was low so that you could talk without screaming. The ambiance was great, low lighting, oil paintings on the wall, waiters in suits, perfect amount of time between courses, and delicious food. The owner Dominic Galati came by the table to make sure that our every need was being met. The atmosphere was just right for the perfect evening.

    The veal piccata was awful, the meat was chewy and of poor quality. I didn’t want to embarrass my date so I pretended to like it. I was not impressed with dessert, the chocolate cake was cold and just out of the refrigerator. The server SAID they were known for their veal. So I ordered it. I had no idea veal could taste so bad. Pretty pricey for a bad meal.

    Go somewhere else on the Hill. The waiter finally showed up to our table 15 minutes after we were sat. He was extremely rude. It was an absolute nightmare experience. I asked how he was doing to try to break the ice and he barked that “there are only 4 staff members left of 14 and the rest aren’t coming back!” He checked on our table so infrequently that we had to go to the bar to get a bottle of wine with dinner. He charged up to the bar and started yelling at myself and the bartender. The host comped our bottle of wine and another staff member took care of us for the remainder of our dinner. We watched him stomp around the restaurant and slam plates down in front of other guests. It was pretty appalling. We were also charged for 5 entrees instead of the 4 we received - we only had a patty of 4 - we didn’t notice that until next day. Just wanted to pay and get out. The food was good - not great but overpriced and I would not go back even for a free meal after our experience.

    I took my fiancé to Dominic’s for a romantic night out in hopes to present him with his wedding band (we get married in less than 3 months!) and the experience did not disappoint! Our server was kind, funny, and attentive. The food was delicious! The ambience oozed romance from the dim lighting, the mirrors, and gold wall accents. It helped that they spaced all the guests out across the restaurant so it felt very intimate and private. My fiancé ordered the rack of lamb and he’s still talking about how good they were days later. Oh, and he LOVES his wedding band. The night was a success. We will definitely be back!
