A friend saw the reviews on TripAdvisor and suggested we visit. What an amazing experience! Great service, great food and lovely setting. The attention to detail is incredible! From the small freshly baked rolls to the beautiful glasses. What a truly amazing dining experience! Truly some of the best food I have had in all my life!

No question that the food, atmosphere and service were terrific. They were booked but they were able to fit me in. Glad they did.

Dominic is quite surprising. One block from the bustling Old Town Square it offers peaceful, classic quality restaurant surroundings for a well-prepared, delicious and well served dinners. We enjoyed a fresh tasting vitello tonnato, the creamy artichoke soup - the duck fillet and the deer chops, all with balanced taste and tenderness, accompanied by very nice wines. The wine list...

We visited as a group of seven multinationals as part of a professional trip to Estonia. We all thoroughly enjoyed a great night here. The food was lovely - the scallops and risotto excellent, the sea bass divine, the beef and foie gras beautifully cooked. The wine list was excellent and varied with some great wines at reasonable prices. The... More

My wife and I had dinner here on a Sunday evening. We had tried to book for 8.30pm but were told that as it was a Sunday the kitchen closed at 9pm so we had to settle for 7pm- a point others should watch out for. The service was first class but unobtrusive and the surroundings stylish. I started with... More

We had a really super meal at Dominic. Everything was really good from the amuse-bouche to the dessert. I highly recommend the "Deer chops" which came with the most amazing chorizo black rice. Had a little kick to it and so much flavor. My husband enjoyed his beef filet with foie-gras. A very classy place with a live pianist on... More

We had an excellent dinner and found the service to be top notch. We were only sorry that it was our last night in Tallinn. Be sure to book ahead.

Amazing wine list with initially great service. Then the waitstaff disappeared and for 25 minutes, we waited for them to reappear! Food okay but not great. Right across the street from Hotel Telegraaf but we would walk farther for better food and certainly better service! Jeff White Radnor, PA May 27, 2014

After eating here on our first night inTallinn we decided to return for the second as the food was so good. Service was excellent with knowledgable staff assisting with menu choices and pairing to wine selection. Meals were beautifully presented and had an interesting range of flavours on the plate. Highly recommended and not excessively priced. We had 1 starter,... More

Ate dinner here tonight. The food was excellent-we had borscht, duck and elk. Delivery was slow - not the fault of server. But server was very arrogant and rude.
