The dinner at Dominic’s was wonderful as usual. The place was very busy which was a good sign since the Covid restrictions effected so many restaurants at this time. The service Wes a little slow but it’s to be expected right as these places are so short on help but didn’t put a damper on our evening at all. Will go back again and again. The food is the best would recommend it always. It’s a five star for us.

Dominic's is our go-to place whenever we want great food in a friendly, elegant environment. The staff are always prompt and considerate. We love so many dishes on the menu that it's difficult to choose, but whatever we order, we have never been disappointed and we walk out feeling we've had a fantastic evening.

Love Dominics on the Hill and decided to try the Trattoria in Clayton. Difference atmosphere than the one on the Hill. We are spoiled, no doubt. The Hill location is still our favorite. Thank you for a nice evening.

Another excellent meal at Dominic’s. Although the menu is very traditional, the execution and service were superb. The lamb chops were perfectly grilled, and the halibut moist and flavorful. Our server was also very attentive and friendly. Nice decor with no background music, so you can hear your tablemates.

The staff were a bit on the rude side, impatient acting. And it was definitely not busy. It was a bit of a let down because the setting was very nice and the place was clean.

food was very good the waiter seemed like he was not interested in us much at all and not friendly. When we were there once before the service was outstanding so maybe it was just one of those nights. I will return

Date night with my wife. We have visited Dominic’s on the Hill several times. This was our first visit to Dominic’s Clayton and we weren’t disappointed. The food was excellent and the service equaled the quality of the food. We never felt rushed so we enjoyed a nice, relaxing dinner on a Saturday night.

The food was ample and we shared each dish, both appetizer and main course. Service was swift and friendly. Prices were up a bit higher than the last time we ate there, however.

Confusion from wait staff as to who would serve our table. Very long wait (15 minutes) to place order order for drinks. Fifteen minutes more for them to be delivered (two glasses of wine).

Food was very good, but again very long time for a restaurant that was not overly busy.

We may give it another shot, but with do many other Italian options in the area I'm not sure. It's very good, but very slow.
