Stopped overnight in Bath en route home to Essex from Dartmoor. I had pre-booked a table at Chez Dominique and am so glad that I did. The booking form asked if it was a special occasion, which it was. 2 days earlier had been my wife’s birthday. On arrival front of house Julien, a quite flamboyant Frenchman, made us very welcome with a glass of bubbly for my wife on the house. I was surprised that he was so affable as the previous day he phoned me to confirm my booking. As our visit to Bath was to be a surprise for my wife, I very hurriedly confirmed and cut him off! Thankfully he accepted my apology gracefully and proceeded to make a memorable night for us. My wife knew that we were going out for dinner but not what sort of restaurant, however when she read the menu she was amazed. Her favourite starter and main were both there - gazpacho followed by sweetbreads. Dessert then came with a lighted candle. There were 2 other tables celebrating birthdays and they received similar treatment. All in all an excellent night made special by the menu, service and ambiance. I cannot recommend Chez Dominique enough.

Lovely small restaurant with excellent service and beautiful food at a great price. We were given a private room at the back with river views. Really friendly service - I was given a complimentary glass of champagne as I mentioned I was a bride to be. Lovely place!

Fantastic dinner in central Bath location. Excellent starters of gin cured salmon and gazpacho followed by wonderful sea bass with samphire and broad beans. The chocolate fondant for dessert was to die for. Set price menus are a steal for such great food and atmosphere. Everyone at the restaurant was attentive without being intrusive and so friendly. Definitely my restaurant of choice next time I visit Bath.

The weather was unusually hot and there was no fan or air conditioning in the restaurant area for diners, it was uncomfortably hot and we left earlier than we usually would and many other diners did the same. But an air conditioning unit or fan is my advice!

Fabulous food and friendly informative staff. Much prefer this smaller but beautifully prepared menu. I had Wing of Skate and my husband had lamb. Both exquisit and extremely good value. Seemed popular with local customers too. Lovely atmosphere.

What lovely people,superb(and very reasonably priced)food and a varied choice of courses or of two/three course prix fixe,many wines by the glass and a fair number of mid priced bottles as well as top range eg Puligny Montrachet at £100,pleasant plain and simple decor,more than happy with hygiene and social distancing arrangements so felt perfectly safe.They deserve their high acclaim.Really something for every diner.

A lovely meal for our day trip to Bath following our wedding. Contacted the restaurant a couple of weeks ago try and arrange a celebratory cake/drink and they gave us a glass of prosecco each on the house which was a nice and welcome surprise!
Staff very friendly, lots of space in the restaurant and the food was cooked perfectly. Rump of Lamb and pork chop for the main, creme brulee and passionfruit Pannacotta for dessert - delicious food all round and brought out in good time too.

Can't knock anything for our meal. Lovely place to eat and would definitely recommend and return.

We were given the private room which was lovely and cool on a barmy night. Food was on the whole superb: in particular the rump of lamb, scallops and chorizo, and all desserts. Sides were disappointing: spring greens was a very small bowl of boiled cabbage, jersey new potatoes were also very small. Perhaps restaurant could give some more creative thought to side? Aside from that a really lovely experience.
