Horrible experience! Stay Away! Had booked a Birthday party for 10 (5 couples) Setup a month in advance in the Patio area. Came in at 7pm. and the table was not even setup. This is on a Monday, day after Christmas and the place was deserted. They scurried around and finally got the table set. We all came with wine to enjoy, and pre-cleared that we could bring as many bottles as we wanted and we would be charged, and gladly pay the corkage fees. We were abruptly told be the manager on duty that 2 bottles max. is there corkage limit. After telling him we cleared this in advance, he then says, ok, we will allow 4 bottles. This is now 20 minutes into a back and forth conversation that we pre-cleared with managment, not once, but twice when we reconfirmed our reservation. He was not nice about this at all. We called across the street to the ""Capital Grille"" to see if they could take our party. They said, come over in 10 minutes. We walked across the street to wonderful greeting at the front door. A Private room, setup magnificently was waiting and we were all greeted by the Manager and Captian: Trevor Hale whom served us that night. We sat down and started to enoy the evening with a nice Sauvignon Blanc from Gainey Vineyards. About the time they brought cocktails ordered by a few in our party, the Manager walks into the room and thanks us again for coming in. He asks for which of the 4 guests are having the B-Day celebration, congratulates them all, and then announces that he is waiving the corkage fee of $200. on the 8 bottles of wine we are to enjoy that night. We had a great experience and will never set foot in Dominicks again. So, if you want a place in WeHo that appreciates your business, head over to The Capital Grille. I predict Dominicks will be gone soon, they treated us very poorly.
