Domenic's Restaurant with 4 friends

My wife & I & 4 friends had a great night at Domenics. Service is excellent. Food was also excellent. Entrees, Mains & Sweets were equally as good ! Place is a bit 70's but being renovated.And it is BYO wine! Would definately return as there is no criticism to be made here !

Tried to book for the Saturday of Easter. Closed as they were for January. If they cannot be bothered, then they don't deserve my money. Plenty of other places that make more effort

This is the fourth time we have been to Domenics in 16 years, and things have changed. A bit. The carpetbag steak is gone, as is the avocado vinaigrette, but the old favourite Filet Mignon is as good as ever. The calamari entree was well cooked, if a little chewy and tasted great. The fish dishes were excellent, perfectly cooked... More

This is a fabulaous no nonsense, no GEN X or GEN Y fairyfloss, no yuppy decor, and definitely not on the trendsetters list. That's why it is fully or close to fully booked just about every time we have dined there. The customer demographics are the baby boomer and older set. We appeciate a great feed, for good value, without... More

What a lovely restaurant! Friendly staff and a great place on a cold winters night with a roaring open fireplace. Nice menu with an extensive list of specials. Our favourite local place to eat.

Domenic's Restaurant is BYO & the type of place you can always rely on and take people, knowing nothing is going to surprise you and you'll never be disappointed. The menu rarely changes & the food is excellent & the staff who have been there for many years, Christina & Julia are excellent waitresses & know how to 'strut their... More

The staff are fantastic and lovely, the food always perfect, cozy, romantic, our favourite place. Melbourne has a many restaurants and we eat out a lot, but there is nothing else around like Domenic's. It is brilliant.

Domenic's Restaurant in North Balwyn - wonderful BYO in the burbs. Visit in winter and share an open fire with succulent food including duck and terrific steaks and fish. But leave room for the desserts, at least two different soufflé's were offered on the night we went [chocolate being the favourite] plus other great dessert dishes. The attentive service is... More

A group of us ate at Domenic's on a Friday evening. Although our booking was for 7 pm the restaurant was already full, probably as it tends to cater for an older crowd. The restaurant is BYO wine and we were quickly served some herb bread and plain bread and butter and our orders taken. We drank our wine and... More
