We visited on a Tuesday night for a retirement party for a colleague. There were about 15 people and they set ups long table in the front. Are server was Kim and she did an excellent job keeping up with everything. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I had a veal dish and my wife had the tuna special. They were both... More

Four dishes. Gnocchi a 5. Clams a 3. Fettuccine Alfredo with sausage a 2. Chicken Marsala near 4. Service very good. Wine and beers nice choices for a restaurant like this. Does not compare equivalent Italian in such places as Cleveland, Philly, Indianapolis or other cities of similar size. The real problem is the inconsistency of quality among dishes. I... More

Very popular so make reservation / come before 5:30 for dinner. If you like hearty red wine, check out their house Montepulciano.

Always busy. Hard to talk at the table because it's pretty loud. The food is a hit or miss. I live around the area and it seems every other visit is not good.

It was good food and filling! Thursdays special menu was "less special" and most of us ate from the menu choices.. I had Chicken Parm which... More

We ate here with friends. It is very crowded so go early unless you have a reservation. It is close to the water but you can't see it from inside. The gnocchi was delicious.

This was a second visit for my wife and my first experience at Mr. Dominic's. It is a lively, fairly noisy, and vibrant atmosphere where it feels like all of the diners are family members. Service was very good but understandably a little slow due to the number of customers (this was a Sunday evening around 5:30 and the place... More

Mr. Dominics is my favorite restaurant in the Rochester area. The portions are huge and everything is exceptional. The only downfall is that the dining area is small and can be quite loud. I usually opt to eat in the bar area at the high tables, which is less noisy.
