Dominic's on the Hill Ratings and Reviews
I used to go to Dominic's back in the 1970s when I would visit St. Louis on business. At that time It was my favorite restaurant in all of St. Louis. I wanted to take my wife there as we were visiting the area. I was not disappointed both my wife and I enjoyed it immensely. Thanks Dominic for a fantastic dining experience. We will be back.
PS. I don't know how to evaluate the "Noise Leval". The noise level was perfect for quite conversation and noisy enough so you didn't feel all alone.
I loved the meal we had together as it was a reunion of friends, unseen for many years. An anniversary to celebrated. The service was excellent, we were asked many times if there was something we needed (almost to excess). Our meal was on a weeknight, and we had the attention of too many waiters. Probably four or five waiterss would come to our table, which limited our conversation. The food was excellent, all of us were very pleased with our choices. One had the salmon, another the Romano Chicken, another the Veal Fontina. All had the salad and in all dishes the ingedients were fresh and plated beautifully. Very excited to have tableside heating of soup and other sides. Loved the special dessert made tableside by Dominic. Great evening.
My husband and I have been going to Dominic's on the hill for special occasions when we are in St Louis for 20 years. The food is phenomenal. We ordered the Chef Dominic's 5 course special this time and WOW! We raved about our meal so much to our friends that they changed their reservations from another Italian restaurant to Dominic's.
Two words - very disappointing. The food was not good. Need some more spices or something.
Food was bland. The spumoni tasted old and I had to send it back. They did not offer a substitute.
Not sure I understand the reasoning behind the warming of the plates at the table. Lots of staff but not well trained. Would definitely not go back or recommend this restaurant.
Lovely restaurant, fabulous wait staff, fantastic food. We were celebrating our tenth anniversary as a family, and they treated my six year old (named Dominic!) like a prince. Mr. Galati made a special appearance at our table when he heard we had our son with us. Just feel like family.
This is truly authentic Italian cuisine. One of the top 10 Italian restaurants I have had dinner at in the country. Food and service were nothing short of 5 stars. The veal with mushroom & capers in lemon sauce (piccata style) was fantastic. Veal was tender, cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. The mussels & beef carpaccio were a fantastic way to start the meal. We followed with the tomato, basil and mozerella salad. The anchovies were a pleasant surprise. Be sure to save room for the tiramisu and the authentic cannoli's. This restaurant will now be a must visit when in St. Louis.
The attention to service was outstanding. As soon as you drank your water, even when it was 3/4 of the way full, he was there to refill it. You can't leave the bartender out. The drinks were filled to the top of the up glasses, just as they should be. I don't mind spending $13 or more for my Maker's Mark Manhattan when the drink is a good one and the glass is filled to the rim. Just don't charge me a ridiculous price and not fill it up. I wanted a drink and they gave me one. Great Job!!
Absolutely a special evening. Very courteous and greeting staff. Allowed plenty of time to make our selections and offered wonderful specials. The food was spectacularly good and offered foods that take time to cook right and taste authentic. Menu had plenty of variety.
Readily recommend for any special event like a birthday or anniversary. A cozy ambiance.
This was a second visit and it easily lived up to every expectation. Cannot wait to go again.
From the moment we arrived, this evening was very disappointing. After being seated by a surly host we waited 10 minutes before anyone from the wait staff acknowledged our presence. The "captain" never smiled and almost rolled his eyes when we inquired about the wine selection. It was nearly a half hour before our first course came to the table. Although the food was fine, we waited way longer than necessary between courses. In the middle of the meal, the air conditioning came on and it got so cold that my wife needed to put on her coat. All in all a very disappointing evening at a premium price.
A very pretty room, we were promptly seated but for having so many employees running around it took too long to get drink order placed, from there out service was very good.
Salads were excellent, entrees not so much. (Veal picatta could have used a few more mushrooms and pasta was rather bland)
Overall I would say you are a little too expensive, for the quality of food. ($8.50 for a Schafly? that is Bush stadium territory.)
Great St Louis ham on the hill. They have quite a few veal dishes.
Carpaccio, tartar, and smoked salmon were excellent.
Rack of lamb was the clear winner for our party's entrees.
Osso bucco was great, but could have been made with canned tomatoes /sauce. As long as each bite had meat in it, the dish was great, but sauce was a bit underwhelming.
Veal t-bone was good and tender, but might pass next time.
Bananas foster (flambe) was great but could have used less sauce so the ice cream doesn't melt as much. If they let you split it 3 ways for the price of another scoop of ice cream that would be the way to go.
Overall, great experience and meal. Service was exceptional, except the few times the servers came to the table smelling of cigarettes.
If you are looking for table-side preparations and desserts they have quite a selection.
