My husband and I really enjoyed our lunch at Chez Dominique - the pasta with butternut squash, wild mushrooms, pine nuts and crispy sage leaves was absolutely stunning and I loved the use of seasonal ingredients. The service was fantastic too - really friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back!

Delicious lunch and outstanding service. Ensure you book ahead (even on the day, like we did) as we saw so many people request a walk in but they were fully booked on the day and we understood why!

Wonderful meal in a beautiful, understated setting on our final day in Bath. The service was top notch and the food, by far the best we had (of a great selection!) in Bath over our long weekend. The monkfish was to die for!

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chez Dominique.

Booked for our anniversary and the meal did not disappoint - we had the duck and skate to start which were both delicious and Monkfish and Venison for mains. Generous portions and the experience lived up to expectations. Staff and service excellent. Will return for sure.

In all my 40+ years of dinning out, I do not recall such good value, the food was fantastic, the service was sublime and felt authentically French. I would more than recommend this restaurant and we will be sure to book a table on our return to Bath.

A group of six of us enjoyed delicious food from your set menu last Sunday and everyone of us found our food beautifully presented and full of flavour. The back room was well ventilated and all care was taken to observe recommendations for Covid 19 . Service was attentive and very good. We have eaten here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed .

I could not recommend this restaurant enough! The owner was an absolute delight when we arrived on Friday. Our table wasn’t ready so he showed us to a bar table and served us a complimentary aperitif. Later he recommended other bars to go to, all of which were excellent. Great value, great food and great company!

We were glad to find Chez Dominique open for business and were able to reserve a table for lunch. The present Covid crisis means that the ambience of the restaurant was not as usual but the staff and the food more than made up for it. We always enjoy a meal at this restaurant and will return again soon.

Booked for a quiet, late lunch during a day out in Bath. Left feeling, as we too often do with restaurants these days, that it was "ok"but wouldn't rush back.

Starter of trout was tiny and badly needed something like a a melba toast on the side - or better still perhaps the time honoured basket of bread that one would normally associate with a "French" restaurant?

My main of veal with Roquefort sauce was very good, my wife's fish was overpowered by the ratatouille.

Service up to that point had been excellent from both le patron and his charming lady waitress who happily moved us into the window, but as we completed our mains, a family of four, obviously well known to Le P, became his sole focus of attention and as the service declined, so the noise level increased as he and they loudly reminisced. I could recount the entire conversation here as my wife and I were unable to finish ours.

So - ordering pudding and coffee became an exercise in eye catching which is always dull.

Bill for two courses for one, three courses for another plus two glasses of wine was over £70 - albeit with an eye watering £7.50 supplement for the veal.

In short: small portions, loud patrons aided and abetted by the owner on this occasion and high prices. Draw your own conclusions.
