I was at Da Marco for a business dinner. Disappointing.
My expectation to offer a truly Italian dinner was not realized: the real artichokes "alla Giudia" do not have a lemon/citrus cream and the clam spaghetti were very salty. When I told the waiter the dish was salty he told me that clams in Texas are actually salty!
I didn't want to start an argument as I was with a customer, but in Italy that dish would have gone back to the kitchen if not out of the window... Clams are clams everywhere in the world and everybody knows that they are salty....you just need to know how to wash them properly and how to cook the pasta (like everybody knows in Italy). Nobody came to my table to apologize.
This is not acceptable in a top rated and high priced restaurant. It is a pity because I liked the place.
Awesome as always. Service is impeccable. Never rushed. Octopus was the best I have ever had. Raw Oysters were delicious.

We had a nice expierence, the food was amazing, and great atmosphere.
Our waiter, Eric, was awesome... great service and knowledge about the menu!!
Excellent food except for desert. A little pricey ($340 for two) but it was Valentines Day. My 4Runner was a little out of place among the high end Benzes and Jags.
Had to wait 30 minutes to get a table for two , despite a reservation book 7 days in advance .
During the wait nobody from the staff had the courtesy to inform about the possible wait time .
OUTSTANDING SERVICE AND FOOD!
Simply the best. For years and years this quiet neighborhood spot has out shined all new entries into the Houston restaurant scene. Treat yourself to an incredible dining experience. You will come back again and again.
Fabulous time! Our favorite restaurant!
