The main course I had was very good! Bruschetta was awesome and the finishing mousse cake was superb! Was a great time with my friends before prom. Servers didn’t feel super attentive but I can’t understand it was a busy night and I may have been impatient. Very kind people around!

Really loved this place! Beautiful location, and really good food. We ordered the hot tenders, regular tenders and the walleye. The hot tenders + the spicy sauce that it came with was really hot so make sure you can handle the heat. The tenders came with truffle fries which were awesome. Overall highly recommend this spot!

Great ambient by the river. Awesome views and excellent service. We stay at the bar for a couple drinks and the bartender was very friendly and promptly available.
Waiter was also very polite and was always available without being obnoxious. After finishing the food and dessert, we stay for about 40 minutes enjoying the conversation and the view. Awesome experience!

everyone was very nice however the waiter must have been his first day as he did not know what he was doing. if it was not his first day please train them better before they are on their own for a nice place as Fratellos. I have been there several times in my life and love the restaurant. veggies were very hard but the food taste was outstanding as usual. I work in the food industry and a manager so only giving constructive criticism.

If I could find one fault it would be the drinks were almost to strong.so definitely money's worth I guess.

Took two tries to get my tenderloin medium rare and still couldn’t get it right. It’s really not that hard to cook a tenderloin medium rare. The other two in my party had delicious meals. The location is beautiful. Will give it another try.

Great food as usual. Not busy at all for a dinner service (feeling bad for the restaurant business). Server appeared to be new to the job; didn’t have all of the menu and drink options memorized. But, was attentive and polite.

Waitress was unknowledgeable in menu items, steak was tough and fibrous, potatoes had a crust around them from sitting out too long, chocolate cake was dense and dry. Overall, not worth the $90+ for two people. Very disappointed.

The shrimp was amazing. I also had the filet and was alittle disppointed. It did not have much flavor. I attempted to flag down the waitress for some salt but by the time I got any attention I had already eaten half of my steak given I didn't want it to get cold. I asked for mushrooms and I literally recieved 3 mushroom stems on top. I thought that was alittle cheap given it was the most expensive item on the menu. I was expecting at least a couple spoons of them. Ambiance was what drew us in - we will come back but will choose different food options.

This was my first time there, and I went for my birthday. The meal I got was amazing; I got the chicken piccata. Also for my birthday they gave me a free dessert with a sparkler candle, and that was delicious as well. Definitely recommend making a reservation for your next special event.

We had not eaten in a restaurant since March of 2020. A friend shared on FB the wonderful and safe dining experience they had at Fratellos Waterfront Restaurant River Domes. Oh my goodness, she was so right. We had a cocktail and shared a variety of excellent appetizers all in the warmth and sunshine of the River Domes. The view and sound of the rushing river is spectacular. Tom and Raoul (sp?) took great care of our small group. We look forward to returning very soon. Thank you.

Meal was good. Portions were very small for the price. $3 add on salad was a small pile of greens, sprinkle of feta and dressing. Table was next to a window with a beautiful view, but over the top of an air vent that was blowing frigid air. So cold!! Couldn’t wait to leave so we could warm up. Server was excellent and drinks were good even though they were out of the one specialty cocktail that we wanted to order.

My husband and I went here for Valentine’s Day. We have been here before and I have always had excellent food and service. This particular day was an exception. We ordered drinks, and then our food. The food came and it was just OK. The value definitely did not match the price on the menu. Our server came back and asked my husband if he wanted another drink, which he did. She then promptly left without asking me if I wanted another drink. She brought his drink back and when I tried to get her attention to order another drink, she was already gone. She showed up again to drop off our bill without asking if there was anything else we wanted. We practically had to jump up and down in front of her so I could order a second drink and dessert. It was definitely not worth $128. Disappointing.
