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.

Da Marco has been a fine dining institution in Houston for many years. Unfortunately, when 4 of us dined there on Thursday May 22 the restaurant and service did not live up to this reputation. We were promptly seated. We ordered a nice bottle of wine and 4 starters. The starters hit the table before the wine was even in... More

the food was excellent and ambiance was perfect for a group of 6 wanting to talk but also lively. no complaints about the service andthe pace was good. my only complaint was in the wine list - which was ridiculously expensive. had to order the cheapest bottle at $70 - thougjh i must admit that it was very good

The meal was excellent meal and preparation was very good. However, the service was inattentive and slightly rude. For example, when I had the spaghettini and "veraci" clams i asked for an oyster/cocktail fork as a dinner fork was the only utensil which arrived. The waiter returned with a cake fork. I explained the cake fork was not the proper... More

So, my wife and I were having date night and we choose this place. We pulled up and my wife was dressed beautiful as always, but I was... More

Great ambience as we celebrated a special birthday. Quiet enough for a romantic dinner, yet still had great energy. The service was perfect: never rushed, but attentive. The short ribs and the lobster ravioli were each fantastic. Kudos to service staff! Beautiful restaurant. My high expectations were exceeded!

Pretentious was used in a previous review and that may be a good word. Anniversary dinner Saturday early evening. My lobster first course was good but my Black Bass main was underwhelming. Wife had the braised short ribs which were OK but not her cup of tea. She asked for a small plate of plain spaghetti just to get something... More
