Wonderful food, drinks and service! The 5-course dinner with wine pairings was amazing!

The food was exceptional, and each course [we got one of the Valentine's specials and one regular entree, just to mix things up] was tastier than the one before. Our entrees were tuna, salmon and scallops, all of which were exceptional. They have an incredible wine list; however, if you are not well-versed with wines, this will be overwhelming. They paired the five courses and their pairings were good choices. They absolutely complimented the food they accompanied. My only pause is the cost. This is not an inexpensive restaurant. In fact, I don't know that we have ever paid this amount for a meal for two, other than at a Brazilian steakhouse in Washington, DC.

Wine pairing amounts were a bit precisely small. Atmosphere was lovely, service was good.

Easily one of the best restaurants in Delaware with friendly, yet professional, service, an incredible wine list, a lovely atmosphere, and food that is consistently excellent. Javier was our server... he explained the food without pushing it, was knowledgeable about the wines, had a wonderful personality, and he quite obviously loves Domaine Hudson and all the happy diners.

have not been here for ages and was eager to see how it was now that pat d’amico is running the kitchen. the meal was spectacular. best venison i’ve had in a decade. perfect foie gras with a sweet and salty garnish on a fine brioche. rabbit tortellini was near perfect. well worth a visit. wonderful wine selection. impeccable service. top tier restaurant. d’amico knows his stuff.

We dined on Valentines Day and had the special menu. Every course was delicious. Our server was very personable, attentive and knowledgeable. We used to dine here often and had not been there in about a year. They haven’t missed a beat in terms of ambiance, food quality and service. A very nice evening!

The Valentines Day menu was not up to the usual high standard of Domain Hudson and was over priced. I will go back but only on a regular menu day.

The meal was mixed in quality. We opted for the Valentines Prix Fixe. Bisque was average with tough lobster as garnish. Endive salad was impressive. Lamb was excellent but the cauliflower was hardly edible: dry, hard, tasteless. I did not care for the chocolate dessert, which was dense. I ate about half of it. Overall, I was disappointed to pay $130 and not feel I had an excellent meal.

We have been to this restaurant two times and both times there was an unacceptable one hour plus wait for entrees after we were seated. We don't plan to return.
