Domenica is my go to restaurant for high quality cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant was busy, even before noon, which was expected on a typical Sunday. Our waiter, although professional and courteous, did not deliver the high standard of customer service I have come to expect from Domenica. We had to ask another server for water and “borrow” plates and flatware from the station because we had no plates or utensils to use once our appetizer and pizza were presented to the table.
That being said, the quality and presentation of the dishes were outstanding and made up for the lackluster service.

Food is fantastic, as always. We were disappointed by the service though. We were not seated until over 15min past our reservation time, and we had a show to attend at the Saenger. Our waiter was not very attentive and would disappear for long stretches at a time. Would still recommend this restaurant for its food & ambience. May have just been an off night.

Felt like I was in a factory. Everything was pretty impersonal and mechanical, from the reception desk all of the way through dinner. Forget this place if you do not have a reservation on a busy nite. Besh continues to manage the place, so the menu remains unchanged. Pizza, salad & appetizers were good, but nothing special. It's location across from the Jesuit Church and the Orpheum make it convenient.

Kevin was excellent- our pizza was very late coming out but he handled it great and did not charge us for it. We will of course be back on our next visit

Food was delicious. The antipasti plate was my favorite. Service was poor and slow .... unusual for New Orleans. The Roosevelt hotel is worth the trip
In itself and will definitely go back to Dominica!!

Went here on our first night in NOLA. Chose it based on the closeness to our hotel and the positive reviews. Overall a very disappointing dinner. First off we waited for bread to arrive at our table which never happened. Then we ordered the Octopus Carpaccio, Clam pizza and Rabbit / mushroom pasta. None of them were very good. The Carpaccio was tasteless for the most part. The only thing that had flavor was the occasional chili flake on the arugula. The pizza was the best of the worst. Mostly tasted like garlic and butter. The pasta was mushy and had a bad flavor. Needless to say I wouldn't recommend this place.

Really enjoyed dining experience at Domenica. Outstanding service and delicious food from the pizzas to the chicken! The fudge espresso cookies at the end are yummy. However, If you can save room for dessert, their chocolate hazelnut dessert is one of the best desserts in the city! Worth every calorie.

One of our favorites in New Orleans. Domenica has a great atmosphere and great food. We love the decor and casual elegance of the dining room. The bar is also a very nice option if it is just the two of us. On this occasion, we had a large group and we had a wonderful time.

We had an excellent dinner - food was superb. Only improvements would be service (kinda slow and kinda push out the door). Otherwise, we will definitely return. Need to make reservation WELL in advance to get a normal eating time.

This is a great place for dinner. Superb staff. Delicious and innovative menu. Loved that you could get the same option in small/ large plates. Out of this world in-house made bread and butter. Savory beignets. You would never know this restaurant was in a hotel. Highly recommend!

Initial reception was haughty and unwelcoming as if we had no business being there. It was late, we had a reservation and no good alternative so we waited until we were taken to a table. At that point everything changed - service and food were excellent.

We loved the decor this place screams “chic” with black walls, high end, avant-garde lighting and massive, complex postmodern asssemblages in vivid colors depicting artists’ surreal homage to NOLA.

The place was packed on a Wednesday night! We got there at 8:30, when it was a bit mellow at 75% capacity (healthy buzz but no Bourbon St party crowd).... but nevertheless, my husband remarked on how he was glad we made a reservation or we wouldn’t have gotten a table - sure enough by 9 every chair was filled.

We had octopus carpaccio and endive/candied walnut/radicchio/pear/Gorgonzola starters. A bit heavy handed on endive and radicchio vs pear, so salad was not my favorite but meanwhile we both really enjoyed his octopus. My husband did feel he would have preferred it less chilled more room temp (I don’t agree). Waiter very helpful in selecting pizza - husband went with triple meat (they load toppings on and it’s brick oven fired PERFECTLY done crust)!!! I had rabbit pasta half portion which coupled with salad was plenty. This left me room for what I consider star of evening- Basil Gelato!!!!! Now I want another scoop it was outstanding

We couldn’t have had a better experience minus the service. Our server wasn’t the most friendly. I don’t know if it’s the culture difference (he was from California) but he clearly didn’t enjoy the job and was not overly friendly. My husband and I love to interact with a waiter and waitress but he was all business and barely said anything more than what he HAD to. What was most disturbing was that he was very friendly to the two tables on side of us. One was clearly a “well off” regular customer that he chatted with for over 10 minutes. The other table were from California and he was very nice and conversated with them for a long time. But like I said other than that the experience was lovely. The food and ambience were completely up to par as usual. Would 100% recommend!

We arrived at 5:45pm and were seated immediately. Happy hour ended at 6:00 so our waitress rushed our order in. Happy hour = 1/2 price pizza and drinks! We ordered the prosciutto and arugula pizza. The crust was crispy around the edges but soggy in the middle. The arugula was uncooked and placed on top of a cooked Margherita pizza. The prosciutto was sliced in large sheets, and placed on top of the arugula. I’m getting to a point believe me. When you picked up a slice everything slid off of the limp pizza. It was a mess. Barely any garlic in the tomato sauce at all. It was just ok. If they would have put a layer of cheese on top and baked everything at once it would be better. And add GARLIC! It’s pizza! Our tab was $16 for a pizza and two craft beers so we got our money’s worth. I’d go again but order a different pie. I’d give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

My family (2 adults + 2 kids) was staying at the Roosevelt for spring break this week. After a long day of walking around New Orleans a great restaurant at our hotel was perfect! Cocktail list was amazing as were the beers. Good really exceeded expectations. Pizzas were delicious and the roasted cauliflower is a must! Staff was also more than happy to accommodate our extra guest that wasn’t included in our original booking.
