Damian's Cucina Italiana Ratings and Reviews

Damien's was an excellent choice for dinner prior to attending a musical at the Hobby Center. We ordered the tortellini and the sea bass special. Both were excellent dishes and would order them again. The staff was friendly and helpful when asked to print out tickets that we had forgotten. The shuttle to the Hobby Center was a delight. We didn't have to worry about parking at the event and they were prompt in picking us back up. Will definitely dine in again!

When we first arrived, it was very busy and the person at the host station barely acknowledged us and told us to wait in the already-crowded bar. We were a few minutes early for our reservation, but we did not feel welcomed. Once we sat down, the service was excellent. The food was also delicious. Two of us had the bolognese, and one had the clam linguine. We also had good wine. Overall, a very pleasant experience. Would definitely return and try something else. Delicious food.

We had a party of 6 and made reservations for 12/23 knowing that the restaurant would be crowded. Had no trouble making reservations and had to change our time due to a concert but Damiam's had no problem with it. Then we had to change it back to what it was and again they were very good about it.
When we got to the restaurant we only a few minutes to wait even though they had so many people. Appreciated that we had requested the time and Damian's got our reservation the way we wanted it.
I gave 4 stars for food as one person in our group got her dinner which between the kitchen and the waiter never should have been served to her. The dish was basically burned. She said something to the waiter and he promptly took it back and she got a salad instead. But they did prepare a whole meal for her to take home as well as comping her dinner.

My husband and I always go here before our theatre outings. It's so nice to be able to take the shuttle service. We just valet our car, have dinner, go to our show and leave. No traffic, no parking fees, and no driving downtown. Love, love, love, this place!

We arrived about 20 minutes before our reservation, but were seated promptly. We were a party of 5. All ordered different dishes. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed the food and the service. We then left our vehicle at the restaurant and took the complimentary shuttle to and from the theater. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience and evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant for dinner with clients, a group or a special occasion.

Family Italian at its best. Wonderful service and a beautiful atmosphere inside. The selections were excellent and the food tastes heavenly. Even better that there is a free shuttle to/from the Theater District, so this makes the perfect restaurant to dine at before a nice night in the city. We will most certainly be returning here again and again.

As always, excellent! Waiter in black jackets everywhere. Service excellent. Food excellent. Good wine selection at all prices. Food prices from moderate ($16-18) to $30/40s. Still one of our favorite places. We never feel disappointed.
