This place is very nicely decorated and the staff is really nice and knowledgeable about the food. For how much we were paying, we expected it to be cooler in there, but I was literally sweating. My boyfriend and I got the tasting menu and we enjoyed most of the items, especially the shrimp and grits. I initially thought it sounded pretty gross, but after the first bite I was hooked. They give you a complimentary little dessert box at the end of the meal which is pretty cute, but the desserts weren't that great. Worth trying, but not worth $400 (between food, drinks, and tip).
Sat at Chef's table was a neat experience. The Crab Beignets were awesome! The seafood gumbo truly is award winning. The seared scallops were great and the treats in the box were the perfect finish. Service was impeccable.
The food and drink is great but for the price I expect nothing less than exceptional. My wife's homemade pasta was half cooked, half raw. They made it right by cooking another dish but I can't believe the initial order made it out of the kitchen.
If you are in New Orleans a must try is this restaurant. The food and service was impeccable. We had the Black Truffle beef Tartar, Expresso Crusted Veal Carpaccio, Seafood Gumbo, Rabbit Natchez, 40oz Tomahawk steak. Every dish was cooked to perfection.
I've eaten here twice since I've been in town. Great food. Great drinks, they really do it all great. The menu is a chefs night out dream come true, all the greatest hits of everything chefs want to eat.

Really good food. Some eclectic options. May not be great for picky eaters, but everyone in our party enjoyed their food. Particularly enjoyed the Vietnamese coffee and the blueberry thyme gelato for desert. Also, although there are no vegetarian options on the menu, they are extremely accommodating. The vegan in our group loved his meal.
Great service, with friendly staff who answered all our questions about the menu. The food was delicious - New Orleans inspired, without being the same old staples. Lots of creative blending of flavors. We were impressed by their use of Sichuanese ingredients.
Dim sum brunch is incredible--we ordered one of everything and never looked back. The oxtail dumplings and the seared octopus shumai were personals favorites. Also, definitely order the watermelon and roasted eggplant with blistered peppers.
Amazing food and service. Jonas was very knowledgeable and extremely nice! Beautiful ambience and lots of vegetarian options to choose from. I had noodles dish, Spring Carrot Gemelli, and it was out of this world delicious! I am a picky eater and I'm really impressed so, that says more than 5 stars!
Went here recently for the "dim sum" brunch they've advertised pretty heavily and wasn't too impressed. The staff was very friendly and the space is gorgeous and open but I can't really say I liked any of the dishes I had. I obviously didn't expect anything close to authentic dim sum but thought it'd be fun to see a local chef take on some of the classic dishes and add local flavors to them. My favorite dish was probably the sesame balls with pork sausage but that's because it was just ok. The bacon scallion pancakes were way too thin, the turnip cakes tasted burnt and I can't say the oxtail dumplings had any real flavor to speak of. The Octopus shumai were interesting but I'm not sure what the mustard was there for. Finally the Salt and Pepper Shrimp were tasty but there wasn't exactly a "twist" on them - I could have gotten more for less at any other dim sum joint. I'll have to come back and try this place for dinner or something but my impression is that the kitchen mashes up flavors so erratically that it can be very hit or miss and for me it's a miss.

Absolutely amazing! The food is fantastic, with fresh seafood and a nice twist on traditional NOLA dishes. We came here the first visit for fresh oysters which were perfect. The food, service, and atmosphere were so wonderful that we came back, not just once more for dinner, but also for breakfast and bloody Mary's on the day we were flying out of NOLA! Do not pass this place up!
This place was a very pleasant surprise. My wife and I stopped in for brunch and bottomless mimosas. The service, food, and facilities were all top of the line. Alvaro, our waiter, was full of personality and very enthusiastic about his work and the restaurant. We will be coming back every chance we get.
Great raw oysters and warm, friendly service. It is not easy to please an entire family of five with a tween and two teens, but they did. We were not as chic as other customers, but that did not affect our treatment. If your experience is consistent with ours, you will leave happy.
Find this place, raw oyster and drinks happy hour from 3-7pm $9 a dozen... Simple menu with excellent food. Went twice during my week long trip. Once for beer and raw oysters only, and once for the menu food. Great stuff, staff is super nice and friendly.
This was a diamond in the rough. Daisy Duke's is next door but this place caught our eye. It's classic New Orleans fare that tastes like a home cooked meal in a chic new location. Service was personable and knowledgeable, and the food was hot and fresh. Excellent draft beer selection as well as cocktails. Great experience and look forward to trying brunch!

I can only agree with the reviews here. Top service, excellent food - definitely worth a visit when in NOLA! (nice lovely art deco hotel too)
The first kale was perfectly crispy and not greasy. The fresh lemon and balsamic vinegar gave a tangy bite to it. I also quite enjoyed the bannana dessert as well as many other dishes
the best margarita pizza!! Amongst many other menu items. Very fancy place, but it is known for the pizza as well. Definitely not an Italian cuisine.
My husband and I were in New Orleans for a week long vacation. We went to Domenica for lunch one day and everything was excellent. Great food, awesome prices for happy hour, and most importantly, top notch service. Our waiter, Jordan, was so friendly and attentive. We enjoyed it so much we went back a few days later. This time it was a completely different experience. We ordered 2 pizzas along with very simple drinks: beer and a glass of wine. It was not very busy and after about 10-15 mins we still didn't have our drinks. My husband asked and the waitress just said "yep" and walked off. Clearly she had forgotten but wasn't even polite enough to apologize for the mistake. Another server brought the drinks and we got our food almost immediately after. Needless to say, not a positive experience, and we tipped appropriately. The waitress' name was Andrea in case you want to ask for someone else when you go. I will say the food was delicious both times.
Food was great as usual and the waitress was excellent. However, my drink, cocktail was just ordinary and not worth the expense which is why we only had 1 each. Sorry

Go here pretty often when we're working downtown. Fast service and the food is always fresh. They have daily hot lunch plates. Poboys are really good. Reasonable price for lunch and the ladies that make your food are very friendly and make you feel like family.
The food was awesome but the best part was when my family of 11 walked in the door we were welcomed warmly. We all had different and complicated orders but we're served swiftly and again the ladies were awesome. We all came from Arizona so extraordinary service such as this is not the norm at home and all the ladies blew our socks off. My girlfriend wasn't feeling good and one of he ladies noticed and brought her back to the bathroom and have her some seltzer water. Again awesome wholesome food but what made it better was the incredible service the people of Commerce Resteraunt provided.
The food here is awesome! My husband and I had breakfast here during our recent trip to New Orleans. We each got a hot sausage and bacon omelet with toast and potatoes. The service was good, the food was awesome and the drinks were icy cold. Wishing I could get another omelet right about now...
The service was outstanding. Everyone was nice and spoke to you like you were a friend. The food was great. Prices were very reasonable as well, cheaper than most of the tourist places.
Great Gumbo. Clean and impressive restaurant. Very friendly waiter. Fast service too.
