The food, martini cocktails and service were excellent! Very good value for meal and experience.


Last minute reservations and everything was great as always! Fantastic food and our server was the only one in the restaurant and she was great. Working so hard and so attentive!!


My visit was disappointing. I ordered eggs Benedict and asked for medium. The egg was hard. The waitress did not apologize when I pointed it out. I was very hungry and decided to eat it anyway. As I was finishing the second egg, the chef brought out 2 fresh eggs. I really appreciated the gesture, but at that point, I was full. Service was very slow. I visited in December and had a much better experience. I will go back based on that experience.


The food and drinks are always delicious! Highly recommend.


Excellent food. Great atmosphere. We arrived right at 10am (the time of our reservation) and they took us right in with a smile. It was refreshing to have someone greet you with a smile. The waitress seemed stressed out, but she was the only one I saw so she may have been overwhelmed. She did a great job though, brought us everything we ordered in a timely fashion. Great Bloody Mary's! I will definitely be going back again.


All the food was excellent and the service was perfect


The experience was outstanding! Everything from the wine to the appetizers to the entrees was spot on.


D'Amato's is a great restaurant for a dinner with just the adults, and for families. The food is great. The drinks are fantastic. The staff is wonderful.

I had my best friends birthday here and it was perfect ! They even lit the cake and presented for dessert . Waiter was super busy but kept finding time to check on uS Food was amazing and so was the price


Had a table on the back patio area, the whole area to ourselves. Quiet, great ambiance, and food and service were great. A wonderful evening.


Wonderful meal. Had a house salad - loved the dressing, caprese ravioli - summer special was soooo good. Ended with the donut dessert with cinnamon and vanilla ice cream - yummmmm! My husband had soup and the rigatoni special - he enjoyed both. Can’t remember the last time I enjoyed an entire meal at a restaurant. Windows were open and there was a pleasant breeze. Our server was efficient and helpful. I must go back. Must must must! 😬


I am beyond disappointed in D’amato’s for the treatment I both experienced and watched. I made reservations for brunch and called to make sure there was space near the live band for us. The hostess informed us that there was plenty of room. Upon arrival, my partner and I(black) were escorted to the very back of the restaurant. We asked for another table. We were told that the front tables were for “reservations”. We had reservations. Upon further inspection, we noticed that each and every black party that had a reservation, was placed in the very back of the restaurant. We eventually were offered a table but told we were limited to 60 mins as there were “some guys” who’s reservation seemed to be more important( I’ll let you guess their ethnicity). Me, a 10 year Chief Diversity Officer, took it as a learning opportunity and teachable moment. I explained to the manager that though I didn’t believe the situation to be intentional, perception is everything. And the environment was painting a picture of his establishment. He admonished me for “not understanding”’his reservation process. He further more told me not to “go down that road with him”. I simply said ok, requested my check for the 2 drinks we had, and informed them that we wouldn’t be back. Very unfortunate. I am very dissatisfied and sad. I expected more from their restaurant and more from the city of Royal Oak. If you’re Caucasian, go and enjoy. If you’re an individual of difference, find somewhere more inclusive to spend your money.


Delicious food!! Wait staff is always friendly and efficient. LOVE THIS PLACE!!
