Birthday lunch. Excellent service; friendly and welcoming.
Given free glass of fizz as it was my friends and my birthday!
The food was very good; my friend said it was one of the best restaurant meals she has had for some time. I would definitely recommend.

Chateaubriand was good however the 3 slices each £65 is rather expensive.

Service was very good initially, however then forgot to deliver a snack. Dessert menus were given and it was at least 15 minutes before we were asked if we wanted anything else.

Tables in the window is a bit like being in the shop window, and seat not the most comfortable.

Lovely small intimate restaurant, excellent service and good food. Reasonable prices and the merlot at £19.50 per bottle was an excellent wine

This is my neighbourhood restaurant which I love! Lucky to have it so close. Simply delicious Creedy duck most beautifully cooked. The standard of the cooking is excellent. The lovely ink risotto we had to start was excellent.
I send many many of my Airbnb guests to Chez Dominique on a very regular basis and my only criticism was considering they should recognise me as a local, who has supported them since the first day it opened, Jason never knows me. He ticked us off for being 14 minutes late and said he was about to give our table away, there was another table near by that was never occupied all evening so this was a bit of a dramatic course of action! I understand about timings etc and the need to honour ones booking but another restaurant I go to Regularly Clayton’s Kitchen would not greet me like that! They always smile when you go in, and last Saturday they kept us waiting 45 minutes for our table but were gracious enough to give us a glass of wine, so we did not complain.
So sharpen up Jason, Julien doesn’t treat me like that!

The food was unexpectedly delicious. I wasn’t sure what to choose but I had sirloin steak and it was cooked so well and tasted great. My husband had the cauliflower soup as a starter and I so wish I chose it as my starter because it was incredible. Highly recommended. I’m also gluten intolerant and there was plenty of choice.

We were recommended Chez Domininique by some goood friends and we were very impressed. Attentive waiting staff and a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. The food was great - I had the sea bream with mussels, curried lentils and samphire. Will definitely head back when next in Bath.

The fixed menu at £18 was attractive, the service was good, but there were some serious drawbacks. One is to offer French fries that are made from frozen potato sticks. The other is to serve cheeses straight from the fridge. And the wine was announced as 2015 but in fact a 2018 was served without warning.

After being initially disappointed by a very ‘cold’ welcome to the restaurant (we were 10 mins late!) we were promptly informed that the kitchen was due to close at 9.30pm (even though our booking was for 9.30pm) so we apologised and hurried through the splendid menu and made our choices.

Thankfully the food was absolutely incredible, really delicious and the service after the initial greeting was great.
The staff were attentive and even created an espresso martini for us using amaretto as they didn’t have any kaluha! All in all a fabulous evening was had by all. Highly recommend (just don’t be late!!)

We had our Anniversary lunch there and they gave us a glass of Prosecco each, which was a great gesture, much appreciated. The food was excellent. Tasty Roquefort salad to start, followed by delicious sea bass.
Pineapple Tart Tatin with coconut ice cream , excellent. 10/10

You need to book this restaurant, we tried to get a table for Friday or Saturday evening and they were both fully booked. We opted for a late lunch instead and we were not disappointed. Great ambience , friendly staff and great food. We had the lunch menu and the portions were a good size. Defiantly recommend this one .
