Cancelled our group reservation as they told me on the second call that they charge a minimum spending amount of $250 for parties of 11-19 because they are on"prime real estate" and " people wait over an hour to get in". We were going for BRUNCH with no private dining room special menu or holiday involved. There are too many... More

Going to be brief and to the point. Straight ahead delicious food. Blackened prawns, great salmon and unbelievable Chicken and veal parm. Specialty Palomino and Bolognese sauces to die for. Make reservations if possible but a great bar to sit, eat and drink. Enjoy.

Everything was good!! We started with the Arancini balls which you just HAVE to order!! Then we had salads (Caesar and house) both very good and the Caesar was not fishy tasting. I had the Gnocchi with Palamino sauce .. Delish!! My husband had the Chicken Siciliano, and our friends had the spaghetti and meatballs and the chicken Marsala. Everything... More

While not being real familiar with the Royal Oak Restuarant scene, I had a couple of Restaurants in mind based on reviews. As I drove around, it became very apparent that my first two choices would have to be abandoned do to lack of parking, that's when I came upon D'Amatos. Right away I knew I had find the perfect...

Although attached to D'Amato's, Goodnite Gracie should really have a separate review page. There are separate bars and separate entertainment areas. In any case, ending Goodnite is a big city bar with great mixologists and a hip vibe. One of the best bars in the area nad it has been so for at least a decade.

My husband and I went there for dinner. Good service, mostly italian food, tasty, prices a bit higher than average. They have specials on different days of the week when it's cheaper to order combi-dinner, with a bottle of wine included.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit. Service was excellent, as was the food. To our surprise, we received complimentary cannoli for dessert. Very nice, quiet atmosphere. We had surf and turf which was well prepared and presented. Both starch and vegetable were included with the entree, as well as a choice of soup or salad. Nice choice of wine by... More

My sweetie (whose favorite meal is Prime Rib Roast) and I went to D'Amato's for their Thursday special of Prime Rib for 2 with a bottle of wine for $50. The meal was cooked perfectly with very generous portions. The wine was palatable and the service friendly, attentive and unhurried. The only slightly off-putting note was the choice of background...

We went with a group of 5 people and all of us for our first visit. I ordered the gnocchi and everyone else ordered from the happy hour menu. Their meals all came out and it was another 10 minutes until mine arrived. I had no problems waiting for my meal. When the waitress brought it she apologized for the... More

Went with a few friends. Love this place. Beautiful decor with a safisticate crowd. The food was good. They had live music & bottomless mimosa. The parking is free in Royal oak on Sundays. So stay and indulge in a few mimosa.
