We had tickets to the Hobby Center performance. The convenience of having a shuttle bus take and pick you up is the main reason we chose Damian’s. Damian’s service and food is exquisite. Together with the food, service and the free shuttle, makes an outstanding evening. Thank you!

After having been many years since we had eaten here, literally since Damian himself presided, we were very pleased that all he had meant the restaurant to be was still alive and well. Will def return soon!

Delicious food, great ambience, wonderful staff. We always go here before the theater, they have a door-to-door shuttle bus. Makes for a carefree evening.

Food was good
Waiter started off ok but then kind of turned on us
And we were very unhappy by the end of the meal
We reflected this in his gratuity

Amazing service
Amazing lobster bisque - would say it’s the best I’ve ever tasted!
The grilled sea bass topped with white wine buerre blanc served over cannellini carrettieri and sautéed spinach was out of this world!!!!
Dessert was amazing

Went for Mother-In-Law’s Birthday celebration at her request. She immigrated to the US from Southern Italy over 50 years ago and this is one of her favorite Italian restaurants in Houston.

We have been here several times and it is always wonderful. This time we were going to the theater and decided to take advantage of the shuttle service as well. Everything was great - the food, the staff and the drive to the theater was all wonderful! Definitely will do this thru our theater season!!!!

This is the best Italian food I have had in America! The restaurant is beautiful on the inside and has a very date feel but also a great place for a birthday. The food was INCREDIBLE and the service was so great. Would happily recommend Damian's to anyone wanting some authentic Italian food.

food was good, but the fish dish was not as good as we expected. The restaurant weeks menu items were not from the regular menu at least as far as the main courses so there is no way to compare. other restaurants use regular menu items but give smaller portions or other adjustments for restaurant week menus. would have preferred that. Desserts were good especially the lemon tart which was more like a lemon pie.
