Bad food coupled with poor service made for an unenjoyable evening. Appetizers were pretty good, both our main courses were awful. It is pretty hard to screw up a steak, but not only was it over cooked, it was tough and full of gristle and the pasta was flat out inedible. Total waste of money.
Food and service is always great. We go every time we are in Houston which is often.
Perfect execution of all details makes you want to return again and again!
The lady in the front was rude we had a reservation at 7:30 and she told me we didn’t even after showing here the confirmation on my phone. Then she proceeded to tell me that it would be 45-60 wait. I’m not sure who the gentleman was that asked what the problem was I’m assuming the manager but he took one look at the computer and said oh yes your table is ready. So I’m not sure if we weren’t the typical looking people that could dine there or what. With that being said the food was outstanding and the waiter was excellent at taking care of us. I got to try truffles for the first time and they were amazing!
The food was good but the service could have been better. This is the second time going there the service could
Have been better. They put the wrong dishes in front of us and didn’t scrap the crumbs from the table. It was a little slap dash for the prices.
It was absolutely divine!! Our waiter was fantastic and so knowledgeable about the menu. He recommended a beautiful wine for us to enjoy, as well!! The octopus was spectacular! We can’t wait to go back next time we are in Houston! We loved it!!! Thank you!!
Phenomenal first time experience. Service was excellent, the truffle risotto is a MUST. Will be back...
All good as is always the case- best overall dining experience in Houston
Awesome experience....anything with Truffles!
Always fabulous food and service. An absolute treat (prices not withstanding) and looking forward to a return visit already!!!
Ravioli with lobster was supreme!!
We had a wonderful experience at Da Marco. As always, the food was delicious and the service incredible.
One of Houston’s very best
You won’t be disappointed
Best Italian restaurant in Houston.
Our third time at Da Marco. May be the best Italian restaurant in the world. Truly a one of a kind dining experience. Highly recommended.
Exceptional food and service.
Lovely ambiance together with excellent food and attentive service.
I can’t discover what all the hype was about. Hmmmm. Ok and fair, not worth the money but the experience was ok
Best restaurant in Houston!
Great octopus appetizer and the lobster ravioli was awesome, too.
Enjoyed previous meal there a lot, this one was mediocre. Probably better on a weeknight than a weekend.
Top class restaurant with a well deserved, great reputation.
visit and savor the food can't describe it, can you? incredible.
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.
THANKS FOR ASKING, IVE NEVER HAD A NON STELLAR MEAL AT DA MARCO. IT NEVER ALLOWS FOR A LET DOWN, WE ASK OUR WAITER TO SURPRISE US AND OMG, WHAT A STUNNING DELIGHT HE CREATED.IVE SPENT MANY HAPPY HOURS DISCOVERING ITALY'S BEST FINDS, GREAT FOOD IN ITALY, THIS IS A DEAD MATCH FOR MEMORY MEALS ABROAD.HOUSTON IS SO LUCKY THAT SOMEONE CARES ENOUGH TO DO IT RIGHT.....THANKS GUYS....D DAVIS
We had a nice expierence, the food was amazing, and great atmosphere.
Our waiter, Eric, was awesome... great service and knowledge about the menu!!
Very good food and service
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!
Extraordinario restaurante. La comida riquísima.
Hands down, this is the best Italian restaurant in Texas.
Excellent as always . The risotto with truffles never disappoints . I also had the ravioli stuffed with Blue crab, excellent dish. I would love to see a full service bar.
Great as always
Just amazing all around. Service was second to none.
Da Marco is a Houston Classic. The food and service are impeccable. We always enjoy the truffles tagliatelle. The branzino ala Sale is excellent. Could not ask for a better always consistent restaurant.
