Dominick’s Steakhouse

A Waterfront Oasis in the Desert

When it comes to steakhouses in Phoenix, there are really only two choices: Mastro’s or Dominick’s. Both serve the most pristine porterhouses and rib eyes, arguably in the entire state, but if it’s steak and stone crabs that you’re after, no contest, you go to Dominick’s.

The glamorous chophouse flies its crabs in from Florida between October and May. And that pretty much says it all. Dominick’s is an ideal oasis in the hot Arizona desert. The Kierland restaurant boasts an oversized reflecting pool on its second floor and glimpses of the starlit night through a clear glass skylight. It’s by far the most romantic area in the restaurant. However, it’s an impressive business dinner location too. Suits seated beside doe-eyed lovers are not an uncommon sight around the poolside tables.

If you’re making a trip from the hotel, take advantage of the restaurant’s prime location. Nestled away in Kierland Commons, an up-and-coming shopping center, many high-end stores are within a short walking distance of the chophouse. The center’s well-manicured sidewalks are lined with tall, glowing palm trees that all connect at a picturesque fountain. It’s not a bad place to walk off that extra delicious glass of cabernet sauvignon, or for a pre-dinner stroll.

Steakhouse Caesar Salad, Stone Crabs, and 12 oz. New York Strip.
