Simply fabulous! My partner and I opted for three courses, each course excelling all expectations. The scallops and the passion fruit meringue tart were the star of the evening. Can’t wait to come back on my next visit to bath :-)

Lovely French brasserie, fabulous city-centre location, friendly staff and delicious food. Also very good COVID safety measures! It was my daughter's birthday and they brought her a complimentary glass of bubbly, which was a lovely gesture.

Went for our 30th wedding ANNIVERSARY celebration meal, food and service excellent, greeted with a free glass of bubbly, which was nice, place was fully booked, lots of people turned up to try and get a table only to be disappointed when told there's none available.
Only slight issue, dress code, on website says smart business dress, don't think shorts, Jeans and tee shirts are smart business! Still this didn't distract us from having a wonderful memorable night at Chez Dominique..

The food was lovely. Small portions but all very tasty and as much as I wanted. Optional sides available. The staff were really friendly and attentive and the tables spaced out enough to feel comfortable. £76 for 3 courses for two people including drinks was really good value for quality dining.

My wife and I have been on a restaurant tour of Bath and this was our final destination. The quality of restaurants in Bath is generally very good so the bar was set pretty high for Chez Dominque. I'm happy to say that it did not disappoint - food and service were both first rate and despite the 'one hour 45 min allocation per table' we had a lovely, relaxed evening there.

Dined at Chez Dominique for an anniversary dinner and it was amazing! Great service from all staff and a lovely ambience that you wouldn't get in a chain restaurant. The food was superb and very generous portion sizes. We will definitely be returning in the future. Thank you for a lovely evening.

We celebrated our 37th Wedding Anniversary here on Wednesday evening and it was superb.
As it was our anniversary we were given a glass of bubbly as we sat down which was much appreciated.
The food and service was absolutely fantastic, I can’t recommend this restaurant enough.
Can’t wait to go back!!

Very good good and lovely service. Lacked a little ambience on arrival; tables not set etc but soon came to life. Food was superb. Would have like to see tables already set, quality napkins and maybe some light background music to set the scene.

Stopped overnight in Bath en route home to Essex from Dartmoor. I had pre-booked a table at Chez Dominique and am so glad that I did. The booking form asked if it was a special occasion, which it was. 2 days earlier had been my wife’s birthday. On arrival front of house Julien, a quite flamboyant Frenchman, made us very welcome with a glass of bubbly for my wife on the house. I was surprised that he was so affable as the previous day he phoned me to confirm my booking. As our visit to Bath was to be a surprise for my wife, I very hurriedly confirmed and cut him off! Thankfully he accepted my apology gracefully and proceeded to make a memorable night for us. My wife knew that we were going out for dinner but not what sort of restaurant, however when she read the menu she was amazed. Her favourite starter and main were both there - gazpacho followed by sweetbreads. Dessert then came with a lighted candle. There were 2 other tables celebrating birthdays and they received similar treatment. All in all an excellent night made special by the menu, service and ambiance. I cannot recommend Chez Dominique enough.

Fantastic dinner in central Bath location. Excellent starters of gin cured salmon and gazpacho followed by wonderful sea bass with samphire and broad beans. The chocolate fondant for dessert was to die for. Set price menus are a steal for such great food and atmosphere. Everyone at the restaurant was attentive without being intrusive and so friendly. Definitely my restaurant of choice next time I visit Bath.

The weather was unusually hot and there was no fan or air conditioning in the restaurant area for diners, it was uncomfortably hot and we left earlier than we usually would and many other diners did the same. But an air conditioning unit or fan is my advice!
