Delicious

Great menu. Nice variety. We were four guests and everything we had was outstanding. The calamari was perfectly cooked. The asparagus with the prosciutto was delicious!! Great service. I would definitely return!

I did not order any Italian food which was probably my fault. I ordered a steak with asparagus. The streak was perfectly cooked but it was not outstanding. I cant fault this place though being that it is an Italian place and not a steak house.

The setting is very romantic and the service and food top notch. My wife and I went for a date and started the evening with calamari and sweet potato raviolis. The raviolis were some of the best I had ever had. We then each ordered pasta. We were pleased with the freshness and flavor. We will definitely be back.

This place is a nice throwback to old school Italian dining. This is a place where most patron dress up to eat. Its not a very big restaurant and reservations are definetly recommended. We were there for dinner and it had a nice vibe. I liked that most patrons wore suits. There was a lot of conversation in the restaurant.... More

Had a party of 5 on 12/23. Warm, homey environment with a very tolerable noise level. Food not cheap, but who would have expected it to be. Great quality, excellent service. If we dined out more, I could become a regular.

I had the pleasure of having lunch here. Wow. There is free valet parking (most convenient given that it's located in a busy road). The decor is warm and inviting and there is a dress code in effect (no shorts and t-shirt). At lunch it was full of suits chatting about business. Staff were very professional and polite with a...

Downtown Houston parking can be a nightmare, especially when an event is happening. Well here at Damian's you don't have to worry about that, as all you have to do is pull up to the front door and they take care of the rest. The customer service is on point. I really couldn't imagine better service. The entrees carry an... More

This restaurant has old world charm and customer service down to a tee! Complimentary valet parking is available at the door of the restaurant. We arrived plenty early for our reservation and were promptly seated. The restaurant was quiet as it was only the beginning of the dining hours. Another party was gathering in a side dining room; but there... More

TXBohemian was recently at Damian's for a company holiday dinner. Our group was seated promptly at our reservation time. Service was friendly and professional. Definitely order the Caesar Salad for two and they will make it at your table. Tried the Osso Bucco (available only on Friday and Saturday) and was expecting some flavorful tasty meat on the bone, however,... More

Nothing special. The waiter was very nice and accommodating. The food was nothing special. I have been there a few times and will keep going there.
