I've been in Da Marco 3 or 4 times and although the food is simply the best Italian cuisine in town, the service remains poor and unfriendly. Upon arrival the only concern of the waiters was to show me the vine list. In a restaurant of this level I'd expect that customers are allowed to choose the food before the... More

We went with a large group last week. Everything was amazing, especially the truffle risotto, and the favas with tomatoes, and the various salads. The wait staff did a particularly good job of not pouring the wine too fast, so everyone had an enjoyable evening. The wine menu is very extensive. There are some very pricey bottles here, but also... More

After having visited this restaurant several times in the past, we decided to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary at Da Marco last week. Let me be clear, our previous experiences have been good to great. And despite some of the recent tripadvisor reviews, we decided to go with our 'gut'. The arrogant and disinterested service was a major disappointed. The... More

AMAZING Italian food. We went for dinner this past Saturday. Very stuffy and elitist atmosphere aside, this restaurant really delivers. I started off with the salad special: heirloom tomato and watermelon followed by the strip steak with lobster mushrooms. My, my... delicious! My wife started out with the grilled artichoke and her meal was the roasted branzino. The fish was... More

Great Italian Restaurant. Only beer and wine from Italy. Absolutely great food and service. Do not get there without reservation. The perfect place for dinning with friends or in a romantic atmosphere.

On Mondays Da Marco's is closed so I made lunch reservations for 4 on "my table" We were celebrating a friend's 94 year old mother who is returning to California after a 3 month stay. We got to the restaurant early and found a young lady sitting at a lectern who immediately treated our group with indifference. She acknowledged our... More

My husband and a friend's husband were at a business dinner. They asked us to join them later for a drink at the bar. My girlfriend and I got to the bar around 10PM and tried to order a bottle of wine. We were told that they could not serve us because it seemed that we had too much to... More

Houston is a fantastic restaurant town. As residents we eat out often and like to vary it. But our favorite is Da Marco. While the service and ambiance are nice, the food is the star. Every evening there are several blackboard specials featuring fresh seafood and other ingredients. On our last meal I had a trout carpaccio off the blackboard... More

This place is an icon in Houston for fine dining and great taste. Everything is impeccable here, facilities clean and nothing to complaint about, expensive but worth every penny spent here.

Omg.... Far away the best Italian restaurant in town. Entire menu is great. As antipasti the Burrata is always a must. Awesome. Their pasta dishes are prepared like pasta and pasta sauce is prepared in Italy.
