My wife and I were here attending an event. The parking was not much of a problem in the lot and on the side street. The interior was pretty blah and not very appealing to my taste. The wait staff seemed totally disinterested and appeared...More

We had our rehearsal dinner here for 45 people in their private back room. Excellent, personalized service. The appetizers, pasta, salad, entrees were all fabulous! Highly recommend for any special dinner.

It was too dark, they had tablecloths, which emphasized the bread's crumbs. The lobby area smelt putrid due to it connecting to the bathrooms. Dominic's, more like Domamiss.

The restaurant is very good. A small little restaurant w/in the middle of the residential street. Food & service is very good. Nice place to have a small dinner w/friends or have a party.

This was my third visit this month. The food is excellent, with a pluthera of Specials, the atmosphere cozy and the service five star. I feel like I've been transported to an Italian countryside restaurant when I'm there. BYOB and enjoy the journey.

We've seen Dominic's in a slow decline the last few years. We've been going there for quite a few years, but it's no longer a welcoming place. You couldn't get a smile or a kind word out of the servers if you held a gun...More
