Italian

Italian food that is true to our home. Settle in at a real Italian table, where rib eye comes after your pasta, ricotta pairs perfectly with chocolate, and nine servings are par for the course. Everyone is la famiglia. Every serving has family style. And gestures speak louder than words. At Da Mario, the meats hang high from the ceilings. Vino drips from the vine. Fromaggio flies fresh across the Atlantic. Our meals are made with spoonfuls of olive oil and dollops of magic. Clink a glass. Pass a plate. Share secondos. Time well spent is time well fed. Il dolce Da Mario!

Horrible service. Got there early told hostess we were there went to bar and still had to wait for a table while they were seating people ahead of us who had a later reservation. Table never crumbed although all the other waiters did it for their tables. We had to ask for parm and waiter never asked why I didn’t eat my entree (horrible).
It was our anniversary and apparently nobody cared. A simple happy day would have sufficed.
The ball was dropped at every instance. Food dropped before we had silverware, etc etc. Won’t go there again. Nobody cares there so why should we?

The bartenders were great however when someone is making a drink I’d prefer them not continually touch their mouth and pick at their nose. I Just think that is unsanitary and inappropriate. Other than that service was great. Our dinner servicer Zori was fantastic and super sweet. We loved the caprese salad and our entree dishes. However I was NOT a fan of the smoked veggies/potatoes at all. Other than that we enjoyed it and will most likely return for another try!

We apologize that you were forced to visit the bar, as it is intolerable and almost unimaginable that water was not regularly refilled, even on the busiest of evenings. As you chose to remain anonymous, we cannot reach out to you, but we hope you share your concerns with our General Manager, Ron Kirk, at 972324.3055, so that we may make your next visit more special.

The food was good and it is a pretty, well furnished space. But it was mitigated by the poor, disappointing wait time and service. There was unorganized chaos with the hostess stand and bar. The valet service was vacuous and we waited in the car for 3 minutes and no one came to us so we self-parked. Back to service in restaurant ... we had too many servers and we were not asked what we needed when we were seated and during the meal. We wanted shredded parmesan cheese and cracked pepper (never got it) and had to wait after asking for it twice. We will not return and your hundreds of dollars can be better spent.

Da Mario Restaurant
Responded 7 days ago

First, we apologize for the seating delay. Valentine's Day Weekend was extremely busy and Da Mario experienced very few delays for the majority of parties. Although the valet is operated by The Star and a private contractor, not Da Mario, we apologize for the short wait while a huge volume of cars were parked, that led to your choice to self park in the numerous garage spaces. We're also sorry that you felt that you had too many servers, and we hope you spoke to a manager about your concerns.

We came in for the “truffled” Vodka Parmesan fettuccine and were deeply disappointed. We paid $48 for plain pasta with no truffle flavor nor Parmesan. I asked for more Parmesan and was COMPLETELY ignored to the point my pasta got cold. Expecting shaved black truffle? Forget it, there wasn’t any, nor there was any truffle flavor in the pasta. The only thing that was good was that it was fresh pasta, but that I could get anywhere for $10 bucks

Da Mario Restaurant
Responded 5 days ago

Our Fettuccine Vodka literally is prepared in a 150 lb wheel of fine Parmesan Reggiano cheese. Thus, the lack of parmesan flavor is concerning and confusing. The truffle flavor is mild to complement the vodka sauce. Of course, as we're sure you are aware, freshly shaved truffles would be difficult to impossible at this time of year as they are out of season. We are sorry that you did not share your concern with a manager, so that we might've offered you another meal choice to your liking.

The food was good. Appetizer (focaccia) was better than the entree. (Fettuccine vodka)
Wine was really nice! Not much of a selection by the glass though.
Our server forgot about us many times. Never checked on how our food was. Seemed very out of it and not prepared for a dinner service. (It wasn’t even packed).
Also. The server somehow couldn’t find our check to let us close our check. He had the manager help him several times. No explanation from said manager for making us wait a long while to be able to leave. How do you loose someone’s check when it’s on the system as our table?
Anyways. Maybe I’ll go back, but....maybe not. I’d rather spend less money and love my food more somewhere else.
Also really sad they didn’t have any valentines specials.

Thank you for sharing your experience. We sincerely apologize for the short delay you experienced receiving your check. On Valentine's Day when you visited, we entertained almost 400 guests. Yours was the only check issue that occurred. We also offered several Valentine's Day specials and desserts only available for the weekend. We will look into why you were not offered them. We invite you to try us in the future. Please inform the manager so we can make this visit right.

It's a great spot for a date night. Great wine list, staff is friendly, and the food was good for the most part.

My gf and I celebrated our Valentine's day here. Started the night out with some drinks - looked up cocktails that included Limoncello so me and my gf made some (off menu) requests after looking it up on google. The bartender hooked it up and was thoughtful and asked how it tasted, even saying if we didn't like it she would make us something different. I had made reservations but they were running a little behind so we had to wait about 20-25 mins. which worked out cause we were babysitting out drinks and enjoying our conversation.

We got our table, was seated and then greeted by our waiter who was very attentive and friendly (in a good host type way).

We put in our order as me and my gf were starving, we planned on feasting and wanted to try a little bit of everything so we ordered Calamari, Cesar Salad, Vodka Pasta, Margherita Pizza, Dry Aged Steak, and finished the meal with their Tiramisu.

Highlight reel of the meal were: the calamari - perfectly battered and seasoned, dry aged prime rib - the perfectly marbled meat just melts and the smokey aroma is incredible, and the tiramisu - what a way to finish a heavier meal with it light, airy, creamy sweet notes. I will definitely be back but next time will probably order these 3 dishes and stay away from the greasy Margherita pizza and the decent vodka pasta.

Booked this restaurant for a Galentine’s date after seeing and hearing great reviews, especially regarding the table side fettuccine.

Ambiance is great - energetic but we could still have good conversation without yelling at each other. Not so dimly lit that it felt is was reserved for couples only. My girlfriend and I got a glass of rosé and eagerly browsed the menu.

Service was adequate - we were never without, but conversation was very clipped and I did not feel like he really wanted to give us any special attention, just the bare minimum. When you go to a restaurant like this, you would hope to feel warm and inviting.

Bread basket that is brought to the table is delicious with the fresh pesto. We ordered the buffalo mozzarella as an appetizer, which was very good. We also ordered the table side fettuccine, which looked impressive going by to other tables. We were excited to try it when it was our turn.

Although the flavors of the dish were good, our biggest problem was that it was not hot. At best, it was warm and quickly cooled after a few bites making it much less enjoyable. I’m not sure if I couldn’t notice a distinct Parmesan taste because the pasta wasn’t very hot when it was in the wheel, or if it was because they added sauce on top afterwards. Our server didn’t come around until we were close to finishing so we couldn’t say anything. Honestly, it would have probably been better and hotter if we ordered the dish on its own instead of the table side version. It was a bit of a disappointment.

Positives: Food was good and our server was good. Negatives: had a 7:30 reservation and arrived at 7:00 for a pre drink at the bar. After going to the host stand 3 times between 7:30 and 8:00 we were finally seated. Three couples that arrived after us were seated before us. Once seated we immediately ordered an appetizer they just ran out of. They serve tapa with the bread that everyone arrows us had but they again ran out of.

All in all I would give them another chance because our server was good and the food was good.

We value your visit. Reservations may not follow arrival order due to party size vs available tables. A large party table may be available before a smaller one, for instance. We're sorry for your short wait, and while a popular item might sell out, our tapenade is always prepared in great quantities and was served throughout Saturday evening. Although you enjoyed the food and service, we hope you spoke to a manager about these inconveniences. Please return and allow us to improve the experience.

The difference between a good restaurant and a great restaurant is consistency. This was my third time at Da Mario—The food was good, waitress got the order wrong. The hostess section was unprepared and unfriendly. Waited at the bar while our table was ready. This was the best experience of the night. The staff at the bar were great and their service was outstanding. Next time, I will eat at the bar instead.

The overall experience was good but not great.

Hi, Pedro! Thank you for visiting Da Mario. Our flourless Italian chocolate almond cake is a traditional baked dessert that is made fresh daily.
