Doma Ratings and Reviews
Great quaint place that isn’t too big to feel like you’re at the keg but not small enough to feel like you have no privacy. Menu options were great. Did the tasting menu for 70$ which was quite good but portion-wise was not that satisfying for the price we paid. Service was pretty good and the waitresses were professional and attentive. Atmosphere was great in that it wasn’t too quiet but no loud music playing where you needed to speak loud. Overall good place that I’d recommend to others in the future and will return with my gf.
Didn’t love the duck breast- was very chewy, but loved the duck dumplings that were served with. The tartar was different but very good. The sea bream main was fantastic- delicious- one of the best mains I’ve had out. Small restaurant and a little quiet for my liking- I always think people don’t want to hear my conversation. No linens, but rather paper napkins—huge turnoff. You’re charging me $70 for a bottle of wine; at that point you should be giving me a cloth napkin. Love the simple little tea lights on the tables.
Interesting Korean with a twist. Food turnover took too long esp given it was tapas style. Came out of experience hungry and unsatisfied. However Food was actually quite good. Pity the experienced was ruined by the frequency of the dishes coming out. Wouldn't try again or recommend - too many other restaurants out there
Good food overall. "Taste the menu" doesn't really work...it is staggered like a tasting menu, but isn't. Courses are not standalone so you end up with some whole dishes that aren't great solo but would be as a side.
If some of them were grouped (still tasting everything) then things would be a lot better.
Food was quite good, but would not recommend taste the menu.
Dessert was awesome.
The tasting menu was inspired and exciting. The standouts were the amuse bouche, the duck and the kobe beef cheek (I would drink the jus by the pint!). The only exceptions were the Bi Bim Bap - which was cold, and had insane globs of spice - and the ice cream dessert, which was bland, except for the black tea ice cream, which was way too bitter and tannic.
Would do it again.
This venue is incrediable the service is full of knowledge and very friendly. The atmosphère and decor was spot on. Understated chic. Food was on another level full of the korean flavor with a french twist. I will highly recommed this resturant to friends and family.
Excellent meal. Fine atmosphere, warm and welcoming staff. The tasting menu is an incredible value for $65. You sample the entire menu and the portion size allows you to experience each dish adequately. Every dish was delicious and creative, without being too much so. Fresh ingredients, combined in interesting ways with flavors enhancing each other. Fine vegetarian, fish and seafood options, as well as meat courses. Desserts were tasty and creative as well.
Wine list is short and could be a bit more varied and interesting, but they had some nice choices in the short list of wines by the glass.
And the chef is friendly, humble, not to mention very talented, and genuinely interested in talking to his guests. Very welcoming. Highly recommended.
We had a fantastic meal here. Unfortunately there was some drama about my Guest's allergy- the restaurant promised they could easily accommodate, but that was not the case in person, so we were a bit miffed. They did apologize but still annoying! The ravioli/mandu (fish dumplings) were incredible, and so was the octopus. Yummy cocktails too!
Very quaint little restaurant, you can definitely feel the French ambience. However, the food was just so-so - as I've had plenty of Korean food in the past, I just found that nothing really surprised my palette. I was expecting a more interesting meal for the prices they charged, but didn't really discover any new tastes or experience any mind-blowing food chemistry. Maybe my expectations were too high - it is true that I haven't seen any of these dishes anywhere else, but the fact that they didn't taste that out of the ordinary was a problem for me.
The tasting menu is definitely worth your money. Where else would you get an amazing 9 course meal for $65? The food stays true to its origin but still tastes refreshingly unique. I really enjoyed how the food tasted both familiar and new. Most of the items are cooked to its perfection, but especially enjoyed the grilled octopus. Crisp cocktail selection and friendly servers. Very pleasant experience with my girlfriends and definitely coming back.
Incredible meal. One of the best meals I've had in Toronto in a long time. The decor was minimalist but warm with people chattering and having fun. Dish after dish was delightful, the next better than the last but each could stand well on their own. We had grilled octopus, the rice cake and the seafood ravioli dish. Each item was delightfully complex with gorgeous flavours. Unpretentious but delicious. The service was very pleasant but could have been ever so slightly more attentive (my water glass was empty for a bit). Would go back again and again.
Enter a seemingly simple building, the interior boost of simple elegance, just well done enough it look classy. We where greeted by the manager and the chef came to greet us to make sure they could accommodate our gluten free requirements. All the staff was very attentive and service was friendly. Anticipating every need you had. The food was amazing; we enjoyed several dishes as appetizers and some of main course portions. When the octopus was served my dining companion asked for it again instead of desert. It was marinated for 6 hours and then cooked vacuum sealed. These guys know what they are doing. The Korean French fusion is done in a young a sophisticated way, unlike anything else in the city. Job well done. Of all the places i have been to in Toronto this would be the best. Highly recommended
Extremely original menu - we chose to enjoy the tasting menu. Everything we had was delicious. Standout was the octopus. The decor inside is minimal, warm and inviting. Because it was a nice evening, we opted to sit on their patio, which - because it's on Clinton, gives you the "busy" feel from College, without any hustle/bustle of people flowing past, which was lovely.
Service was excellent.
My boyfriend and I decided to celebrate my birthday with a dinner date at Doma, and it did not disappoint! The food was fantastic - particular favorites were the grilled octopus, the sam gye tang, and the pork belly. We felt that the tasting menu was an incredible value, as you can't get 9 courses for that price many (if any) other places in the city. Our waiter informed us that the menu is often changing (by the months and seasons), so we will definitely be returning sometime in the near future to try more of Chef Kim's tasty creations!
Worst service I ever met. The servers chatted with each other all the time and response guests inefficient. The waitress is really unprofessional. How can you pick up an empty plate then put back on our table？ And when guests want to take a photo of the dishes， the waitress just talk and pour the sauce right away？？ You in a hurry？ The octopus is very good. But some dishes are too salty， some are not seasoning well.
We celebrated my daughter's 19th birthday.
Food was good. Variety of Korean foods. Unique, delicious and well presented.
Staff was helpful - explaining the various food items on menu as well as when food arrived at table for tasting.
Vegan option was satisfying.
Enjoyed by all bin our group.
Arguably the best new Toronto restaurant this year. Second time there and as impressed as the first time. Creative dishes, beautifully presented, amazing mix of flavours, great original cocktails, attentive service, amazing value - 65 $ for a tasting menu that is up there with the very best in the city, at a fraction of the price. Congratulations - I see a very bright future for you guys!! Can't recommend enough!
Doma's location is nestled in a small but familiar corner space in little Italy that was once the well known Astoria. I had expected that the fusion Korean/French cuisine would be interesting and exciting but, it was quite underwhelming. Overall, the food was sometimes tasty but not the level of interesting I was hoping for. Each dish seemed to lack the potential to be great. The serving sizes for two people felt suitable for only one person. I cannot see how the tasting menu sizes could have been any smaller if I had dined that night. All factors considered, the serving staff was nice, the ambiance was decent but the price for the food would have been better spent at many other restaurants in Toronto.
Food and presentation was excellent. Plates are shareable and there could be more food on them. Definitely enjoyed the food.
There was a draft so the constant air conditioning was a little too much to handle. I think if we were in a different spot in the restaurant it would've been much better.
My girlfriend and I had an excellent dining experience at Doma for our anniversary. The restaurant was modern and chic without being pretentious, the service was friendly and attentive, and the volume level was loud enough to discourage eavesdropping but quiet enough to have a conversation without needing to raise your voice. The food was incredible — delicious, creative, and incredibly good value for the quality. The tasting menu at $65pp is one of the best deals in the city. Highly recommended!
