This restaurant is superb. Saturday night was our third visit to Damian’s and we were just as impressed as the times before. The service is outstanding, the food is incredible and the overall experience is always memorable. We really enjoyed the table side Caesar salad presentation, which was new to us. We will continue to come back as it is our favorite spot to celebrate special occasions! - Danielle & Salman

Damian's is always such a treat! This was my husband's first visit and he's hooked now! The service is always impeccable. They know what you need before your even ask. We love Damian's and will be back for sure!

I visited Damian's as restaurants were opening back up to 50% capacity during COVID-19. They seemed to take all of the necessary precautionary measures. Patrons were seated every other table and all of the wait staff members were wearing masks.

The food was wondering. We ordered the Tableside Caesar Salad, Shrimp Damian, and Chicken Lamberti. All amazing! My boyfriend and I were celebrating his birthday so we also ordered a flourless chocolate cake with ice cream - something that was special for that particular day.

I would definitely go back! Perfect for date night.

Good food. First time to try. It was a birthday celebration and we had the restaurant to ourselves. Probably hard to review service since we were the only ones to serve but they were attentive. I would recommend just on food experience alone though.

Enjoyed our anniversary dinner here this past week! The service was impeccable and we enjoyed many drink and food creations off the menu which is just a testament to the service and chef skills. From the menu we absolutely loved the gnocchi, ravioli, and chicken lamberti! You should definitely check this place out and don’t hesitate if you have tweaks you want to make to your food order (I.e. like changing out pasta type or sauce)

We ventured out to Damians for our anniversary during the pandemic. I was incredibly impressed with the detail and care they put into social distancing and service. It was my husbands first time eating there and the food was wonderful. Robert our waiter was excellent and personable and the discounts on the wines encouraged us to upgrade to a nice Barolo to help us celebrate. I hadn't been to Damians in years and I am so glad we chose it.

Absolutely loved getting back out to the restaurant scene! Food and service were excellent! I think some things could be done to enhance the experience and the ambience. The empty tables in the middle where they were not seating anyone could’ve been filled with candles flowers placesettings that were not gonna be used just to make it feel a little more cozy. I wish there could’ve at least been some flowers or candles on the tables. Maybe all of this is against code but I think there are ways around leaving everything completely empty.

Waiter was helpful and got me an off the menu veal dish. Unfortunately meat was a little tough. The lobster bisque which normally outstanding seemed a little thin. Wine and drinks were good. Not Damians’ fault but we ended up seated next to a table of six very loud customers. You know the type. Everyone yelling and no one listening. It was my wife’s birthday and just happy to have an opportunity for a night out. Thanks Governor Abbott.

Wonderful food and impeccable service without being over bearing. The Gnocchi Verdi is a must try as is the lobster bisque served in a sour dough bowl. The fish as always was cooked to perfection. If you like a Cosmo, the Sicilian Blood Orange Cosmo is the best I’ve had anywhere. Over the years I’ve had some exceptional meals here.

Awwww Damian's....this place our # 1 place to go before concert night at the Houston Symphony. We (me and my besties) all enjoy the atmosphere and feel of this restaurant – The minute I pull up to the front the valet parks my car and opens the door, I am greeted with smiling happy faces and then seated quickly in the section with my favorite waiter. Benjamin automatically brings me my favorite martini called "Nutty Cousins" it is a smooth and creamy martini with lots of flavor and now I am ready to relax and enjoy the evening. We laugh and dine on the best food in town and then we all jump on the trolley and go directly to the concert. Round trip! So convenient and stress free! What is not to LOVE about this awesome place!

Our waiter was amazing. We haven’t had such attentive and proper service at other restaurants. After a fantastic meal, we caught the shuttle to the theatre. When the show was over and we returned, our leftovers and cat were waiting for us. This will be our new go to restaurant on theatre nights. Can’t wait for the next show.
