Domenica had been highly recommended to us, so perhaps it was an off night. The service was very good. The room is pretty. It was quiet due to the required table spacing during the pandemic. I ordered a glass of sparkling wine which was flat. The waiter was gracious about taking it back and opening a new bottle. The pizza is excellent, as are the salumi, and the cauliflower appetizer. The pasta sauces were very over salted to the pint of overpowering the other flavors. I would consider trying this restaurant again on the chance that this was not a representative night.

I’ve never felt so honored to be part of the “chef club” as I did tonight at @Domenica! Chef Ada outdid herself with a special tasting menu, along with the service from Derin! Y’all, this food was PHENOMENAL! Everyone was super friendly and service was exceptional! Even though I’m a fraud, I was honored and amazed to be treated like a VIP! We will be customers for life and dine there whenever we need to impress others. Highly recommended!!

the only other thing I can say about Domenicas besides a 5-star rating for food, service, ambience, and value is that the location inside the Roosevelt hotel is also 5-star. Easy and fast valet parking, charming ground floor of hotel with a gift shop full of NOLA gifts. Also a church right across the street. World famous Canal Street and French Quarter only one block away!

Wife and I both loved the smoked beet salad. She had the lasagna that we both thought may have been the best we have ever had. They make their own noodles, cure their own meats, and create their own sauces and spicy oil for the table bread. Truly a culinary delight. Oh, and Cory (without an “E”) our waiter, was most excellent! Great experience which we throughly enjoyed!

Our sever was great but the food was not. The portions were extremely small, the pizza crust was burnt on the bottom and not done enough on top. We really wanted to love this place but it was just ok...very disappointed.

We had a great time at Domenica last Saturday night. We were celebrating my future daughter in law say "Yes to the Dress". The food was amazing and we loved taking pictures in the Roosevelt. We started the meal with meatball and polenta, and roasted cauliflower. We had a margherita pizza, shrimp risotto, and Bucantini all Amatricia. We finished the meal with King Cake and gelato.

We eat often when in NOLA especially after Mass @ Immaculate Conception. We LOVE meatballs
We decided to walk there Friday night especially for the meatballs. My hubby was pleasantly surprised you had a bourbon he has been looking for. ❣️❣️❣️. We ordered a salad to be split for 2 & 2 orders of the meatballs. Asked for salad to be first - kinda enjoy our visit. The young man delivering the food from kitchen we would say wasn’t having a happy day. He delivered the salad with a hard drop to our table in one bowl & no plates to divide it 😢😢😢😢. My hubby ate the salad & I never got any. Then shortly after he does a hard drop of our meatball plates. Needless to say not our best visit. It upset me more than my hubby but of course he had his favorite 🤩 bourbon 🥃. Our waiter (Gerald) offer us ice cream 🍨 but we weren’t interested. He apologized for what happened as well. We look forward to a more restful, relaxing & enjoyable visit in the future. Thank you

Look, this year and last year, so many restaurants at 25% capacity, including Domenica. We were not sure of how the changes had affected one of our favorite places in NOLA.
But the food was superb. We went before the Saints playoff game, we had missed eating there through out the NFL season because we were only allowed in for 2 home games. So, we were super excited to get to enjoy it. Everything we had was excellent, and the cocktails, banging, as always. This is one of my favorite Besh restaurants. The fried kale was so good, I could have just had that. But we also shared the meatball starter and the red royal shrimp starter. Husband had his usual, margarita pizza. Our waitress was new too us, we had not had her before, but even she was so friendly and knowledgeable. Domenica never disappoints, always delights.
