Absolutely the best. Our server Eddie was awesome and the food was outstanding. Staff and management treating my wife very special. It was her birthday and they helped me make the night all about her.

Crowded, waited by room like those of a free medical clinic, we were ushered in group of 6 to the second floor from the outside via a side stair well like going to and illegal joint of some sort!
Upstairs the drop ceiling has old tiles, a lady greeted us and was the nicest staff.
Once seated could see a frustrated captain. The service was as you would expect in a busy restaurant
Food was OK from a set menu ( I guess to be expected for Valentine’s Day or a major occasion)
Not very impressive for price.

Valentines dinner. Viewed the menu online. I’ve been there for numerous occasions and the food is always excellent but set for the occasion. I had expectations of an open menu and found out it was set menu only after being seated. The food was still really good

Went to Damian’s on Valentines Day, which is an atypical day for sure. The fixed price menu was a little high for three courses (almost $70 each), but the food was FABULOUS. Service was rather inattentive, which is not at all characteristic of this restaurant. (Normally, you don’t wait for a table it you have a reservation and water glasses stay full without asking.). Still, Damian’s remains one of our favorites.

We arrived about 10 minutes prior to or reservation time and were seated right on time. Service was on point and the the food was great. Our visit was on Valentines Day and they had a limited menu, we will return to explore more of their menu. Highly recommend!

It reminded my wife and I why we don’t go to dinner on Valentine’s Day. Overpriced, poor quality and very slow service.

Damien ‘s as usual rises to the occasion. Valentine’s Day can be hectic for almost any restaurant but Damien’s service was impeccable. On Valentine’s Day they prepared a limited menu but the cannelloni as an appetizer selection was superb. I would have preferred a bigger selection of pasta dishes but settled on a filet which was done to perfection. The deserts were also wonderful but the bread pudding was sublime.
Next year hopefully they will expand their pasta selection and we will return again.

Not a good dining experience. Our meals were good, however, service was rushed, obviously trying to turn tables. Also, extremely overpriced.

We have been eating at Damien’s for 30 years. The quality remains outstanding. The best Italian restaurant in Houston.
