They were understaffed so we were told but our table seemed to be the only one without a server. They appologized but the impression had already been made. Food was just average.

Michel was an outstanding waiter and gave over-the-top service throughout the duration of our time spent here. We were visiting with family from AZ and he let us be and didn’t rush us at all. We will highly recommend this place to others and plan to come back, absolutely. Thanks Michel!

Dinner was excellent, with good food and the drinks and service were very good too. We’d been unhappy with the place for a while, but they’re on their game and a great place for dinner at a reasonable price with great food. We love it!

My wife and I went here for the first time on our anniversary. We were not disappointed. Wife had the Chicken Piccata while I had the Honey-Peppered Angus Beef Brisket. Both were incredible! My Brisket was off the charts delicious! Add to that a very good house Cabernet and it was the perfect meal. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

This is one of the best brunch spots in Royal Oak! The food is fantastic and the service is always very friendly and knowledgable. Also they have $4 mimosas at brunch! Score! In addition to the always cozy dining room, they also had live music when we were there for brunch! Love this place, can’t wait til the next visit!

We’ve tried almost all the restaurants in Royal Oak as part of our dinner-theater outings. D’Amato’s blew them all out of the water!!! We will be going back as often as we can!

D'Amato's is our go to for brunch on Sundays, food is always good and service is great! They also have live music around noon which is always really nice too, but might be a little loud for some people. Highly recommend.

The food here is really outstanding. Pricey but worth it. We’ve ordered through Grub Hub a few times and it was so good, even after delivery wait times, we figured it would be even better in house. It was. My only complaint...They weren’t busy but our waitress was not very attentive. She was very nice, but forgot things, and disappeared for a long while after dropping off the bill. That being said, we definitely plan to go back.

We were entertaining family from Europe and they wanted a good and authentic Italian experience. The entire evening at D'Amato's was excellent: service, food, beverages and atmosphere. The 3 trains that came through were distracting, but our overall experience was excellent. We will definitely return soon.

Great restaurant! Loved the music, great service, amazing drinks. The ONLY downfall for me personally was the high chair they gave for my daughter was absolutely disgusting. I ended up using all the napkins to cover it so she could sit- I guess next time we will bring our own! Overall we really liked this place and will be back (except we will bring a chair for the babe).

Last night my husband and I had dinner at D'Amato's with friends. Everyone at my table had a delicious meal, including my gluten free zitti. Our servicer, Alex, was phenomenal. Our drinks and meals were all delivered quickly and efficiently. What made Alex standout was his charm and graciousness, he made us feel so welcome. We will definitely return. Well done Alex!

This was my first experience as D'Amato's restaurant for dinner and I will certainly be returning. Joaquin, our waiter, was a pleasure to interact with and understood very early on that we were not in a rush. The food was delicious and their wine selection is one of the best in Royal Oak. We ended up staying for 3 1/2 hours (by choice, of course). The swordfish and gnocchi were fantastic. I highly recommend D'Amato's for dinner!

Anniversary dinner on Thursday, the evening special is a three course prime rib dinner that includes a salad or soup, a 10 oz prime cut, a bottle of wine and desert which my wife and I decided to try. Did I mention that this is a dinner for 2 that costs $50? The meal was very good, the beef was very well prepared and tasted great the desert was donuts with gelato, spectacular! I upgraded the wine and we walked out for $100 including tip.

I can’t wait to try the Italian entrees? I think they’re gonna be delicious.

Met out of town friends for dinner here. They were very impressed with the quality of the dining experience. The prime rib special was excellent and included soup or salad, entree, dessert and a bottle of decent wine for two. All yummy and reasonably priced. Will return!

We had an awesome experience here the other day for brunch! Our service was great not just by our server but the other servers as well. Everyone there was very friendly and helpful. Also, since we were celebrating a bachelorette, they sent out some donuts to the table on the house! All of our food was delicious and just the right portions for the price. Mimosas were great and at a great price! Overall, we had a great time and as first time diners at this place, we all said we would definitely come back here! Thanks for a great brunch!
