I ordered a spaghetti and it was delicious. Other people in my party ordered pasta and fish dishes. They all said that their food was very good and would come back again especially for the Napoleon dessert. Our head waiter was very energetic.
A WONDERFUL Restaurant Week experience! I went last night with my father and sister and from beginning to end, we all thought it was delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. When trying to decide between the restaurant week prix fixe and the regular menu, the server assured me that the soft egg filled raviolo (creamy and delightful) was their signature dish and the same on both menus. He added the the veal (mouthwatering) was also identical. Can you imagine a server selling me the prix fixe rather than upselling?! Wow! My family had the mussels and white bean appetizer and the scallops entree (from the prix fixe) and were very satisfied. We did add on the yummy buffalo mozzerella caprese and a lovely bottle of wine. The sommelier was friendly and helped me select from the extensive wine list. He suggested affordable wines (around $70) based on my preferences, when he could have pushed for more pricey ones, since there's a wide choice of wines in the $500-$1500 range (they start around $45). The sweet ending was a chocolate polenta.
Also important, although a jacket is required and the atmosphere is fine dining, it is not stuffy or stuck up. The whole evening was enjoyable and incredibly tasty!
Always our FIRST stop when we visit New York!. San Domenico never fails in providing the BEST service/hospitality and authentic Italian food we've had. We never visit New York without enjoying an amazing meal with Marisa May and the amazing team at San Domenico. We always are made to feel like the most important people in the restaurant. My husband and I recommend it to everyone we know who is visiting New York (ranging from my parents to a United States Senator) and no one is ever disappointed! My favorite is always risotto but my husband tries something new each time. He loves it all. I consider San Domenico a "must do" when dining in New York City.
THE BEST OF ITALY, IN NEW YORK!!!. San Domenico is one in a million. The owners (Tony & Marisa) spend every waking hour wondering how they can make the dining experience for their customers better, and it shows. The food is an experience beyond description. Tony & Odette (his award winning chef of over 10 years) travel to Italy several times a year scouting out the best dishes, sauces and ingredients to then come back to NY and make a dish fit for a Roman Emperor. Marisa and her dedicated staff are always making sure that every customer feel like they are the only ones there, they never miss a beat and know exactly how to make you feel special. If you know of a place that can do this night after night, month after month, year after year, as San Domenico does, I'd love to know.
FINE ITALIAN DINING FOR ANY OCCASION (ROMANTIC, BUSINESS, FAMILY, FRIENDS). I have been dining at San Domenico for over 15 years and can honestly say that I recommend eating at San Domenico for any occasion whether it be a romantic occasion, a business dinner, a family get together or a night out with your friends. The staff will automatically tune in to the type of experience you want and will make you and your guests feel like true VIPs (Tony & Marisa Carmela have got to be doing something right because they have the most friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff I have ever seen in a restaurant). The food is a true experience in Italian cuisine (Tony May and Chef Odette spend countless hours on their menu every week). You will never go wrong in choosing San Domenico.
Italian food at its best.
This is the best fine Italian food you can get outside of Italy.
The finest ingredients and the most incredible dishes that you may think you have eaten before, but not like this. If you appreciate exceptionally good food you will not be disappointed, Not to mention, the warm hospitality; a very special place in new york.
greeted with warmth and a big smile. san domenico is one of my favorite restaurants in new york city. i love the atmoshere, the food, the excellent customer service, the private party rooms and the warmth and friendliness of the hostess/owner who always greets me as if i am such a vip. i have been there only 3 - 4 times and i believe her name is marisa, she always remembers me and is so outgoing and bubbly.i get seated promptly and if i ever need to wait a few minutes, i don't mind because i talk to the very sweet bar man. he makes the best san domenicos " drinks" for me and my guests. i also recommend it if you like dining amongst the rich and famous. last time i was there i saw diane sawyer, mike nichols and diane von furstenberg. THIS RESTAURANT IS A CLASS ACT!
If you would like to have "an evening to remember" in New York where you will
feel like a VSIP, (very special important person),
have delicious food and wine
in the warmest most personal atmosphere anywhere in the city-(Tony May or his daughter Marisa
will know you on a first name basis on your first visit)
then RUN to San Domenico (just make a reservation first) and men don't forget your jacket and tie
Outstanding Italian Restaurant.
Terrific food, gracious service and beautiful atmosphere. Delicious pastas!
It is a power scene filled with big time New Yorkers and celebrities. I was treated like royalty too!
The wine list rocks too with best of Italy...look for the good looking Italian wine director with the wild curly hair.
The owners, Tony May and his daughter, Marisa bring true Italian hospitality to NYC and welcome you at the door! Talk about feeling special!!!
