Chez Dominique is a family run restaurant serving French and European food. We are located on the beautiful Argyle Street just over Pulteney Bridge and our smaller dining room, which can also be booked for private dining, overlooks Pulteney Weir.
We have a carefully chosen wine list and an interesting selection of drinks. We look forward to welcoming you to Chez Dominique where you can enjoy good food and drink in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere.

Nice restaurant if a bit draughty when the door is open..

The food is excellent - tasty, fresh and French and the wine is pretty good as well

I like it here - maybe not a special anniversary venue but certainly great place to have a nice dinner with good friends

Excellent food but erratic service and a chilly dining room next to the kitchen so noisy. Had to remind the waiter about forgotten items at least 3 times. The restaurant was full which was a good sign. Avoid the small dining room at the back as it was cold and lacked ambience.

I do understand that a trainee chef was operating at lunch time which goes some way to explaining
the poor experience, however it was pretty bad. Long wait for service & food & the tagliatelle was just warm, sent back & returned a little warmer. I left most of it ! My friend ordered a steak which was almost impossible to cut & inedible. She left most of it ! Our other two friends had fish which was fine. The three ladies on the next table waited a long time for service & their soup arrived cold. Eventually they decided to go elsewhere for dessert.
It did not bode well from the start actually because our request to move table away from the cold draught
of the door was met with displeasure by the male staff who rather showed his irritation by noisily resetting
the table we moved from.
In fairness we were recommended to eat at Chez Dominique by our friend who had dined recently & her experience was completely different, wonderful food etc. She was pretty shocked when she dined again
with us.

Food great, service good. If only the door had a closing spring on it... we constantly had to get up to close it because of the draft. Every time a customer came in or left the wind whistles into our table!!

Everything about our dinner at Chez Dominique was perfection. We started with the chorizo which was the best we’ve ever had. The red cabbage, pomegranate and hazelnut salad with goats curd was a delicious blend of unique flavors. The scallops were divine. For the main course the filet mignon was delicious, as was the sea bass. The wine complemented our food perfectly. The sea salted caramel ice cream was amazing. We loved our experience so much that we wanted to go back for lunch he next day. Unfortunately the restaurant was already fully booked. Reservations are a must. During our dinner, several couples were turned away for not having booked in advance. Julian, one of the co-owners, was an incredible host. We enjoyed chatting with him. The next time we visit Bath, we’ll definitely be making a reservation at Chez Dominique.

We were indeed lucky to get a table for lunch at Chez Dominique. It was a a spur of the moment decision whilst we visited the Victoria Art Gallery. A warm welcome was followed by an super meal from the excellent value menu of the day. Service throughout our visit was efficient and friendly

As usual the food at Chez Dominique was excellent - lovely flavours, high quality and nicely presented.
The choice of wines is also very good. This time our table was in the small room at the rear of the restaurant and I thought the service was not as good - we seemed to be forgotten at times. However it did not spoil the evening.

Lovely food, as always, and a very appealing festive menu. The only reason I marked service as a four was because we had to wait quite a long time for water, and it took a while to catch anyone's attention. However, it was understandably, very busy in the week before Christmas. We love this restaurant.

Husband said the T bone was superb despite the cabbage underneath which I galdly ate. I had the duck, my favourite and I wasn’t disappointed. Unusual accompliments. The chocolate fondant was very good as well. The decor is very basic but that’s trendy I suppose. I prefer a bit more plushness to accompany such lovely food.

Booked a month in advance for husbands birthday weekend in Bath, mentioned his favourite meal was Calves Liver. Lo and behold on arrival there was a special just for him on the menu. What’s more it was superb! Totally fab Friday lunch without a whiff of Christmas party madness. Great Birthday. Thank you so much Chez Dominique for making it so special.
