Domenica translates to “Sunday,” in Italian, it is the day of the week to explore and cook leisurely, abundant meals. At Domenica restaurant, our chefs seek to transport guests to those coveted moments, offering passionately prepared dishes that marry pure, local ingredients with revered techniques.

While the menu is rooted in tradition, our chefs focus on elevating Italian ingredients and classic flavors to create modern classics, adapted for the contemporary palate of New Orleans. The fresh pastas made by hand daily, roasted vegetables, meats and Napolitano style pizzas, all prepared in the restaurant’s iconic wood oven, are perfectly complemented by custom-brewed beers, seasonal craft cocktails and an Italian-focused wine list.

Decent meal. Service was underwhelming, our server definitely seemed more inclined to 6+ table they had instead of our 3 top. I added in our reservations that it was our daughter’s birthday, it was never noted during the dinner. Will try again at an earlier time (our reservation was for 7:30 pm) to give the pizza a whirl and will most definitely order the cauliflower again and fingers crossed it will be a more pleasant experience. Was really looking forward to finally giving Domenica a try but was rather disappointed.

I tried the new venison broccoli rabe pasta. It was a warm dish with savory, light, brown gravy - filling on a chilly winter evening. With wine, of course. Hit the spot!

I bring my son (special needs) to this restaurant every month. It is his absolute favorite! From the squid ink pasta to the tomato basil margarita pizza and lasagna. It’s just incredible.

Decided at the last minute to eat here since it was in our hotel, The Roosevelt Waldorf Astoria. Our server Gerard was outstanding! The restaurant was so pretty inside and the food delish! We really loved the meat and cheese board for an app. Highly recommend!

The food was wonderful and the service was very good but……

The music was so loud that everyone is forced to yell to be heard and we had to keep repeating ourselves to the server.

We left with our ears ringing and our throats hoarse.

Domenica was fantastic. This was our third time dining there when visiting New Orleans over the past 5 years. Our table of four thought it was the best food yet. The service was top notch as well. Appetizers were amazing and inventive and the pastas were to die for.

Service wasn’t the best maybe because it was Christmas. One hour after we were sat down, we were finally served our first course. (We had the prefix Christmas day menu)
The resturant was busy but not packed, there were a few open tables around us. EVERYTHING besides the dessert was salty. Our final entree was the skirt steak to which came out on a hot plate but the steak itself was COLD not warm, COLD…overall, it was a horrible experience and a horrible meal. The food was not good. We made our selection from our waiters recommendations (for example, he hold us to stay away from the shrimp dish since about 40% of diners so far has sent that dish back today) but to be honest, everything besides the dessert was bad. We had to flag down the food servers to get us utensils to which the servers said it’s the waiters job to make sure the diners have the right utensils. We had to cut our steaks with the butter knife till we were finally able to flag our waiter down. ALSO, check your bill because our waiter had added stuff to our ticket that he said belonged to the table next to us… interesting. For a $65 per person meal experience, it was just HORRIBLE. Christmas brunch was ruin.

Food and drink were excellent as always. Service was slow, both for drinks and food—another casualty of the pandemic and millennials being not interested in service type jobs.
