Perfect lunch. Was great to experience all was good just as I remembered it from 20 years ago, ;last time I was in Houston.
Such a beautiful evening. Wonderful staff and the best lobster bisque ever. Wine was perfect and the lasagna delicious! Definitely on my favorite romantic restaurant list
Great experience. Food is excellent
Food was good. Not remarkable. Small menu due to covid. Listed our party had a birthday but no mention was made of it. It was a 50th. This restaurant has lost a bit of its luster from days past
I love this place. It’s like a home away from home type of dining. It’s quaint. Service is impeccable and food is scrumptious! Best Italian restaurant hands down.
Everything was delicious as ever. Special favorites were the Caesar Salad, Veal Piccata and Lamb Chops.
Delish as always!
We always enjoy visiting and eating at Damian's before going to the theater.
First time here. Was a great meal at a great price for the quality that you get. I highly recommend the bread pudding. Will be back soon.
We absolutely cannot say enough good things about Damians. The food is always amazing. The staff and service are exceptional. It’s our favorite place to dine for any occasion!!!
Still great after all these years! We got the quiet corner table that I requested
. Waiter Ben G. was fantastic and the food was great even with the limited menu. Definitely what I wanted to celebrate my birthday with a special friend! Still a place to go for excellent food and wine elegantly served!
We love the Shuttle service to Jones Hall for the Symphony!
Always great food and great service.
Wonderful service and Amazing food!! Will absolutely be returning!!
It makes me sad to write this because I have been going here for years but the sewage stench was overwhelming. We would have left before ordering but we were on a time schedule and there are so few places open downtown for lunch we didn’t have time to select another place.
The food was amazing as always but hard to enjoy because of the smell.
I will go back but I will be sure and call before I go to make sure they have whatever that smell issue is under control.
I went here with my girlfriend to celebrate our anniversary, and we thought it was nice. We cater to more laidback spots that permit for more intimate conversations. Damian's was not only a peaceful dinning experience, but the food was equally tasty as well. It is not a huge place, but I think that is what make the service very tight knit. I would definitely recommend.
Took my dad here for his birthday, and just like last time, food and service was excellent! Ask for Paxter as your server!
This is my favorite Italian Restaurant in Houston. Professional experienced start provides great food and service!
Food was outstanding, wine selection was more than adequate. Each course was delicious. The veal piccata was especially good - the best I have ever had here.
Took our mother here for her birthday and it was fantastic. The veal chop was incredible as well as the sweet potato ravioli.
Family dinner always exceptional service and food
Brought my wife with me to celebrate my son's birthday. Service was very nice and personable. Our waiter answered all of our questions and provided recommendations as well. The fried calamari and Shrimp Damian was fantastic. The special recommendations for the veil, lamb chops and crab/lobster pasta were a hit. I have been a long time customer and it was fun introducing my son to Damian's! A perfect evening.
Everything was just wonderful and such a wonderful place to celebrate New Year's Eve!
great food, great atmosphere, great service, worth the effort!
Damian’s continues to deliver on their service and food even under these uneasy covid condtions.
All ways outstanding food, service and ambience!!!!
Some of the best Italian food in Houston TX. Lobster Bisque, outstanding!
Best tortolini in town!!!
This is our first time going to Damian’s in about 15 years. Armando used to wait on us, he was the best.
Although it was a nice experience and nice place to go on Christmas Eve, we just remember the food and service being much better. We felt a bit rushed by our waiter as soon as we sat down. It’s just not what we remembered.
Not sure I’d go back.
The duning experience here gets better every time, and it was nearly perfect to start with. ALWAYS get the Asparagus Mike Wells (it's not on the Covid menu, but they are still serving it). The food, ambience, beverages and service -- impeccable!
Always good it's hard in these times with little footfall for them at lunchtimes. Food a little cold this time but very tasty. Staff always great. Please support them.
Damian's never disappoints. The quality of the food and service is consistently great. As a result they are our favorite go-to spot for a special meal. I love their Caesar salad and the Lamb chops with spaghetti carbonara was perfectly done and bursting with flavor. We finished up with the Italian Cream Cake which is always superb and a nice strong cup of coffee. Another great experience!
A classic institution but not sure if it is COVID or just lack of focus but service was rushed (when someone actually paid attention to us). Some of the food was 5-star (as it used to be) and some was not even remotely right (stuffed pasta that was almost crunchy it was so tough - was it old or undercooked or ??). Such a great place in so many ways but with other great Italian choices in Houston ... not sure I'd choose to spend a dinner here.
Lovely restaurant with wonderful food and excellent service. An awesome place to go before the theater (when shows are on again) with free shuttle service.
Food was pretty good. I thought it was much better the last few times we have been there. However, the service was really bad. We didn’t want to say anything at the restaurant because we feel bad around Christmas time, but our waters never got filled up after the first time. I had one Maker’s bourbon and wanted a 2nd after dinner but never got the chance. We sat with our credit card out for right at 20 minutes to try and get a to go box and close out. It was unfortunate since the last few times we’ve been there have been great.
Another great meal in one of our favorite restaurants where we can actually hear our own conversation and the service is excellent. Haven’t had a bad meal at Damian’s.
I celebrated my birthday here with a large group of friends. The service was great from the time I walked in the door. The food was presented beautifully and tasted great. The experience was seamless and I’d definitely return!
It is not the Damian's of old (prior to Covid). The food was mediocre with a very limited menu. Service was excellent, though.
