Doma Kitchen- Marina Del Rey
with an emphasis on New American and Eastern European techniques. Owners Angie Corrente with Chef Kristina Miksyte have taken inspiration from their world travels and created a menu that reflects the exciting cuisine
found throughout the globe. All dishes are
prepared from scratch and are seasoned to perfection with housemade spices, placing the highest importance on farmer’s market fresh, seasonal and quality ingredients. With their design background, Angie and Stan have created an environment unlike any other.
A real find. Delicious and interesting food. Good neighborhood restaurant.
Always a fun place to go to eat and hang out. Angie and her staff are prefect hosts.
The food and service was amazing.
Angie and her staff very hospitable. Food is very good and reasonably priced. I am addicted to Doma’s kitchen. We drive to MDR from Redondo Beach every 4 to 6 weeks to dine there
Great food & great ambiance
They have a great selection of Eastern Europe food.
Doma is a go to place for us. We always find something new and yummy to eat. It is so wonderful to have such a special place in the Marina which also features music on Friday nights.
They do have some good dishes but if your looking for authentic good tasing Russian/ Ukrainian you better look elsewhere. Doma means home but the borscht soap was not made with moms love lol. very bland. We had high hopes from the pics but were disappointed and sadly won't be back. The meat was good, give it a try if you want but depending on what you choose you might be disappointed .
We have enjoyed many meals at Doma Kitchen, but our last experience was somewhat disappointing. We arrived around 7:00 on a Saturday evening and were immediately seated at a table of our choice. After that however, the service was friendly but tended to be very slow although the restaurant was not terribly busy. I ordered the fish and chips “special” which turned out to be halibut. It looked delicious, but was a very oily, bones in, skin on fillet—not what one expects when ordering this dish. Everything else was good, especially the berry meringue dessert. After the meal, we waited a long time for our check—I know, this is an American complaint, but annoying nevertheless. Will we return to Doma Kitchen? Of course. Will be looking foreword to the great standard items on their menu and the efficient service we have experienced in the past.
As always, dining here was a delight. The service is exceptional and kind, and the food is delicious and unique. My mother and I have been several times and brought my father for his first meal and we all enjoyed it. Very glad this restaurant is in the neighborhood!
One of my favorite restaurants. Wonderful food, nice art, sometimes music. Small unpretentious place.
Mediocre food and average service - menu looks better than it tastes. Brussel sprouts were good but swimming in oil and meatballs were boring. Fried chicken was so crusty it cuts the roof of your mouth and dry. Maybe an off day?
Never having had Russian/Slavic food I was looking forward to Doma. I wasn’t disappointed. In our group of 5 everybody enjoyed their dish. I had the borsch soup, herring and potatoes, “Plov” (Uzbekistan spiced rice) and the layered honey cake. All top notch, and, for LA, reasonable pricing. I can’t say how authentic the food is, but there were two big tables of Russians there, so there’s some circumstantial evidence. Prompt, friendly service. Original art on the walls. The only downside is that Doma is in a strip mall. While this means plenty of easy free parking it also means a charmless exterior impression. But that’s minor compared to the interesting and well prepared cuisine.
Poor service at first-only one waiter on duty who had to serve 8 tables!! This is not acceptable. When waitress came on duty, service improved considerably. We were given a free basket of delicious bread to compensate us which was appreciated.
Immense variety of food. Ours was quite good and we will return.
Its our neighborhood go to place so I hate writing a good review because I don't want too many people to discover this gem! We love being able to walk over there after a long day and have a delicious home cooked meal. We love Doma.
This was an accidental find. The food was really good. Simple, but well executed and more than we could eat.
Vegetable ragout was outstanding, but the best part was the dessert. Finally a pavlova executed to perfection! Merengue whipped cream and berries.
Great food, but too expensive. Soup should not cost $16.95. among several other extremely overpriced items. But overall, the service was super nice and efficient, and the food is unusual and well prepared. I would recommend the Chicken Kiev (felt like a fair value), and the falafel - also appropriately priced. I would avoid the pelmeni soup ($16.95 as referred to above), and the price for the varenishki is also too high. $8 for the crispy Bavarian bread is ridiculous. But it is tasty. Like I said - food was all good, but very inconsistent from a value standpoint.
It was a nice evening, enjoyed the Friday night jazz.
Brings back old fashioned memories. Food and service excellent.
Unique food, wonderful flavors, excellent service......Angie and her staff are the best
Super excited to see that there’s a Russian restaurant in my neighborhood! The food and service were outstanding.
Great food, excellent service. Angie and her staff always make you feel at home.
Fabulous art work is always on display
I travel all over the country and I have to say, for the price of my meal (breakfast ... how wrong can you get a breakfast?!!?), the outcome from the kitchen was really bad. My eggs, which I requested to be over-medium, was hardly cooked at all and the bacon was dunked in the deep fryer!! I don't believe the waffle is home-made, even though I specifically asked the waitress if it was and she said yes!
I would avoid Doma Kitchen and seek out a better alternative!
Lamb burger with bacon jam. WOW!
Delicious + !!!
I cannot get enough of Doma Kitchen.
We work to restaurant often.
We crave this food.
This is an excellent and different restaurant. The kitchen and the waitstaff are consistently first-rate. The only negatives are minor and easily ignored, extra charges for more jam and butter with the bread basket (petty and foolish) and inclusion of the sales tax in the base for estimating tips, although I find that this misleading practice is fairly common.
Great neighborhood hidden gem. Unique menu with the type of food that you would not normally find in this area. Friendly service and a nice neighborhood vibe.
I was in the area and needed a quick bite. Some of the items sounded delicious but I am not able to try them for Health purposes. My friend tried the Chicken burger/sandwich. It looked decadent! I had the Cornish hen and it feed me for two days. Not at all bad. Would I go back? If I was in the area yes, but I would not make the drive from Diamond Bar to Marina Del Rey just for this place.
The services was on point. She was very accommodating and checked up on us frequently but not overbearing.
We had the potato dumplings - they were delicious.
The detox cabbage salad is also great.
A very nice meal and evening with friends
Tastes like your favorite aunt cooked the meals (if your aunt was Ina Gartenova...). Great selection of homey style items and now wine and beer available!
No restaurant makes food like this one. Neighborhood gem.
This is what we needed this neighborhood, eastern European food.
Very nice place with diversity of healthy and tasty food. All dishes are prepared from scratch and are seasoned to perfection with housemade spices, placing the highest importance on farmer’s market fresh, seasonal and quality ingredients.
Great food. Friendly people, excellent tasty food, come here often
Doma Kitchen is a wonderful, local, authentic restaurant. Everything is cooked to order and tasty. They are welcoming, and we are lucky to have this special place in the Marina
I had never been here before but was looking for a spot to meet at friend for lunch in Marina Del Rey so picked it at random and was so pleasantly surprised! I had a salad (think it was called a Bistro salad) and added chicken to it. It was phenomenal! My friend had a bowl with lamb. Both the chicken and lamb was cooked to perfection. We also had delicious Brussel Sprouts as an appetizer.
Party of four - met here as central between Long Beach and the SFV.
Location - tucked away in a corner near Pavilions Market.
Ate - 1. omelet 2. lamb burger 3. eggs benedict and 4. potato latkes. so, we each were able to get something based on our cravings. Each enjoyed the meal. They also have vegan and vegetarian options.
Price - average for the style and area.
Ambiance - rustic/industrial
Noise - average. These days most places have so many hard surfaces that conversations can be limited.
Amazing food! Thank you
Brunch was super yummy and portions were filling for everyone to appreciate!
We have been coming here for a couple years now. I have tried much of the menu and everything has been great. I always start my meal with the Borscht. It is really good and has chunks of tender Lamb in it. My wife always orders the Plemni and my current favorite dish is the Schnitzel. It is a pork chop pounded the size of a large plate. It is breaded and perfectly fried. It comes topped with a cold fresh vegetable salad. It is enough for 2 meals. They have a wine and beer license now and the prices are very reasonable. I got a glass of the Malbec and was very satisfied. We left full, happy and with leftovers. It is quiet enough to carry on a conversation. On a side note, they had a reservation for a group of 13 people who were already 1/2 hour late and never called and never showed up. Please don’t do this to them. They are nice, hard working people trying to make a living. At least a phone call would have been nice. The layered Honey Cake is a great dessert. It is like a stacked crepe cake. Lots of work to make, really tasty to eat.
Our family went to this restaurant on Thanksgiving Day --- Good food and excellent service!
