While a little pricey, Damian's is absolutely well worth a visit. The food was fantastic - my wife said that the osso bucco that she had was the best she had tasted. The noise level was not overwhelming and indicative of people really enjoying themselves. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you. We will be back.

First visit and it was a great experience. Waiter and staff very friendly and courteous; great service. Food and drinks tasted great. Loved the table side Caesar salad. Would definitely go back!

I was recently invited to Damian's for a private dinner on the second floor. They provided free Valet parking which is always a plus for downtown Houston. The private dining area was quite large and had it's own bar. Great for weddings and parties.

The Lobster Bisque was one of the best that I have ever had. For once there were actually chunks of lobster in bisque! And it was served in a Tuscan bread bowl. Excellent! I selected the Snapper for my entree and that was quite good too. For dessert I had the Tiramisu which was delicious.

The service was adequate and the atmosphere was old school Italian. Damian's is an older restaurant so it's not shining new like some of the places in the Galleria but that is not an issue since the food is good and well prepared

When I have the chance, I would definitely come back for lunch or dinner in the main dining room.

Damian's is really a nice place; been there many times for dinner and for lunch. Visited again this past weekend for Houston restaraunt week...it was great. I had the trout which the sauce was a little rich for my taste but loved it none the less.

Prices are indicative of a nice place but not overly so.

Take your significant other for a nice evening.

Go for lunch for a special treat for the work team.

If you are from out of town looking for an easy win.....this is it.

A group of friends went here for the August Houston Restaurant Weeks Dinner Menu.
Appetizers for lobster bisque served in a bread bowl and buffalo mozzarella tomatoes. The main course was an amazing steak with pasta. I must admit to desert jealousy when I saw the tiramisu. The restaurant was packed yet the service was amazing.
