Took my aunt for her 70th birthday! We both love jazz music and brunch not to mention a good mimosa so this seemed perfect, and it was. The music was fantastic, the food was absolutely delicious and our server Sam could not have been more attentive, fun or adorable!!!

The atmosphere was a great place to feel treated by staff and enjoy pleasant conversation with my wife celebrating my birthday. Food was exceptional and the bonus was half off wine bottles on Wednesday. Will certainly return to enjoy one of the other weekly specials. Very much worth the drive with ease of parking right across from the restaurant.

Overall experience was great. Went in before the dinner rush. Wait staff was great but not overbearing. She answered all the questions that we had and kept our drinks full.

Only problem was there were a few bags/fruit flies hovering around every once in a while.
Definitely did not ruin the experience but was worth mentioning.

We had a wonderful time. We ordered the PRIME RIB for 2 with bottle of wine. Great Value and taste. Waitstaff was second to none. After dinner we slipped over to Goodnight Gracie's to listen to live music and after dinner drinks.Bartender was friendly and full of energy. Atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. Liz Smith was the performer for that evening and her voice is beautiful with some sass. Looking forward to the next time.

We went for a birthday party. Ambiance was good, food was good and drinks were good. Listen, this place was just a fun place to be with friends, but I wouldn't say anything was great other than the service. You will have a good time with decent food with a big group of people.

I ordered the pork chop they were featuring and it was very dry. My husband ordered a steak and it was just average. My friend ordered the veal parm and the ricotta cheese was very cold and made the whole dish seem off. At the end we had a $100 VISA gift card we wanted to use towards the bill and they refused it as payment. Strange. Nothing special about this place so I’m not sure I’d go back but it was close to The Escape Room which we were going to that night.

Wonderful meal, great martinis, and great coffee with dessert! The only critique was the red onion relish in the lobster bisque was unnecessary. Our outstanding server Gail made the entire dinner an incredibly enjoyable evening!

D'Amato's is a neighborhood gem. The food is always spot-on and the specials are diverse and inviting. The wine choices are quality yet reasonable. Most importantly the wait-staff is outstanding. We've never had a bad experience and have always left more than satisfied. This is a great place to be either before or after a show at the Royal Oak Music Theatre or just when you want a quality meal.

My wife and I were looking for a place to use an OpenTable reward certificate and this place was one of the options. We love Italian so figured we tried it. Great experience and we loved it. It has a great atmosphere and isn’t a typical chain restaurant. The food was spectacular and we really had a great time. As we were leaving I said to my wife, I think that’s one of my new favorite places. Thanks

The food was excellent. We had a larger party so that may have affected the service, but we did have a reservation. Appetizers and salads came out in a timely manner, but our entrees were not served for over an hour after we had finished our appetizers. Not sure if this is normal since this was my first time here, but it's possible the service is slow. The restaurant seems fun though, so if I were to try it again, I would with a smaller party in hopes that the service is better.
