A horrible experience at this bar/restaurant. The staff were horrendous. I have never met a staff so unwilling to practice polite and helpful customer service. I felt uncomfortable and unwanted, perhaps because we came in late and they were wishing to close. One barmaid with a short bob, in particular was quite rude. I will definitely not be returning and will urge anyone else to stay away.
As part of our ongoing search for the best Sunday Roast in Auckland we headed out as a party of 5 to The Dominion. Very friendly staff and good service.
The roast on that particular Sunday was beef – and it was top knotch. Perfect cuts of meat and a handsome portion too. Quite pricey, but for what we were getting – we were more than happy.
A true highlight was the horseradish sauce (hoorah someone who actually HAS some!) which was divine and a worthy adversary to the half-cow we had on the plate.
The only disappointment for us was the serving of cajun wedges (?) with the roast instead of menu’d new potatoes. Was a bit of a letdown and they did not belong on the plate at all – no matter how many times the waiter tried to convince us that they WERE actually new potatoes cut into wedges?! Shame really, could have been a 5 instead of a 4 – but well recommended anyway.
Tried the chicken korma and got 3 pieces of chicken in a small bowl filled with mostly sauce/flavoring along with the nann bread and rice. Very disappointed at $25 for the dish – if I got this at a food court (for $8) I’d be taking it back. Other dishes served the rest of the table looked OK so maybe I just chose wrong. Why don’t you have prices for the beers on the drinks menu BTW? Drinks seemed inordinately expensive when the bill was viewed.
Good, friendly service and atmosphere.
We have been here four of five times now – twice for the valentines day special. The food has always been delicious and the service has always been great. I highly recommend the steak!!
I really enjoy going to the Dominion for a light meal (pizza) to something more substantial. The chicken pizza (with cashew nuts) is truly delicious as is the steak with creamed potatoes – my piece was juicy and massive! Have also tried the scallop entree (perfectly cooked) and the Akaroa salmon entree as well which had really good flavours and was a nice light starter. I’m yet to try a dessert but I’ll be back for sure. Good work guys!
Order the pizza’s if your in for a quick drink and a bite to eat. Sadly the $30 Combination Platter wasn’t up to par, was more like 3 small bowls of cat food served with very dry overcooked bread. Otherwise Great local bar, eatery. nice setting, bit noisy if you sitting outside undercover, but otherwise a good atmosphere, service was friendly and prompt.
I have been to the Dominion a number of times now and each time has been pleasant.
The service is excellent and the food is delicious. We ordered a few pizzas, Dominion works (meatlovers) Tandoori Chicken and BBQ chicken. I give all 3 10/10, all bursting with mouth watering flavour.
Half way through our meal our waitress came back to see if everything was o.k, which it was, she then asked us for another round of drinks as we were low.
The bar staff are very friendly and always make an effort in conversation.
Very prompt and friendly service.
I recommend the Dominion.
5 stars for me.
