Dominic's on the Hill Ratings and Reviews

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.)

Had a great time taking my girlfriend on a date. Very high class and very attentive waiters without being overbearing. Waiters were very knowledgeable about their entire menu and were a huge part in my date and myself's fantastic night out.

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.

The best old work Italian restaurant. i go out in NYC all the time-this is better than any other Italian fine dining. Mixture of northern and southern Italian, broad menu, some items you won't see anywhere else (escargot and artichokes-so delicious). It is a beautiful restaurant with murals/paintings, Dominic is a gracious host, the waiters are professional, and the food is incredible. can't wait to go back to st louis!
This is a well-known restaurant. Does it ...
This is a well-known restaurant. Does it live up to its reputation? It depends on your expectations. Neither a temple of healthy cooking nor of nouvelle cuisine, it is a traditional "posh" Italian restaurant with prices to match, but it's not unpleasantly snooty: for example, wines are available by the glass, which is convenient if a couple wants a different one for each course. The service is good without being intrusive and it's generally not too pretentious though I would as soon they skipped the extra heating of the dishes at table side: it's probably not necessary and was apt to make the food too hot. The cooking is good without necessarily being outstanding in every dish. The servings are very generous, so much so that many will not be able to eat more than two courses. I would have preferred smaller portions costing a little less. In fact the beast options would be to offer a choice of small or large portions of the dishes, as is done in some European countries. We were disappointed that the classic Italian aperitifs of Punt e Mes and Cynar were not available, as they are our favorites. We tried one of the off menu offerings of a main course and it was outstanding, and the Zuppa di Pesce was as authentic as an American public can tolerate - excellent! The bill with tip came to somewhat over $100 per person for two courses plus salads with three (generous) glasses of wine per person and coffee, so most people would hardly make dining there a weekly habit: but it's a nice place to go for a special occasion like a birthday.

Dominic's is a gourmet restaurant. The service, food, and ambiance were incredible. If compared to Tony's (another fine restaurant in St. Louis), I prefer Dominic's. They are a little pricey, but their food is worth it. The appetizers, mains courses, and deserts were all 5 star!
Finally, I strongly recommend the Osso Bucco (cross-cut veal shanks braised with vegetables, white wine and broth). It is what they are known for and it is the best thing on the menu!
