Damian's Cucina Italiana Ratings and Reviews

Damian's is an excellent choice for dining before attending an event in the Theater District. The shuttle is just a sidebar to the wonderful food and impeccable service. Business lunches or dinners can be more productive because of the low noise level. The decor is very warm and welcoming. The wait staff are top shelf. The Parmesan crusted asparagus and the sausage & roasted peppers antipastas were a wonderful start. The lobster bisque in a bread bowl was lucious. The salads were fresh and crisp, try the Mona Lisa. The entrees were well prepared and of generous portion. The house chianti tied it all together. Damian's is an excellent value for your dining dollar.

We had not been to Damian's in a while, but we're going to go back soon! Everything about our lunch was absolutely perfect. The Gavi by the glass was lovely. Our server was attentive, but not hovering. We split a salad, and then had pasta entrees. My gluten free pasta with clams was delicious, and the veal ravioli was extremely tasty. Perhaps one of the nicest things (other than food and service) was that the noise level was just right. A bit of conversation could be heard from other tables so that you knew people were enjoying themselves, but we did not have to shout or strain to have a conversation ourselves.

Our waiter was rushing us at first. I asked for a wine list and he brought the food menu and said there are wines by he glass in here you can look at. I was taken aback. He came back and my daughter asked him again for a wine list. He brought us one. My husband and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary, but the waiter did not seem interested or treat us a little special. Otherwise the food was delicious!

The atmosphere at Damian's is very classy, relaxed and inviting. The staff is very respectful and engaging, not pushy nor make you feel rushed. Not a place for children who can't keep themselves in their seats. As for the food, OMG, excellent is putting it lightly from appetizer to dessert everything tasted outstanding. You need to try Damian's - you won't regret it!!

The food was fabulous! We had not been in a few years and we cannot figure out why! Two of us had the Restaurant Week menu and the other two ordered a la carte. We shared many things and everyone raved. The martinis were fabulous as well . The service was professional...attentive but did not rush us. We will be back soon!

I had been to Damian's before, but this was the first time I'd taken my sister. She couldn't get enough of the lovely decorations when we first walked in. I had booked it for the Restaurant Week in Houston and I enjoyed a grilled chicken fillet and fettuccini alfredo. She got the steak with mushroom sauce. Polished off the night with wonderful bread pudding. I would highly recommend Daimian's for special occasions or a quiet get together with friends. It was a wonderfully calm atmosphere.

This was my first visit and it was fabulous! It was raining and to have the complimentary valet with umbrellas handy to assist us getting out of the car was so nice! The ambience and the food was wonderful, a little pricy for lunch but it was still great and I will highly recommend to my friends and colleagues.

The food was outstanding as we ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. We attended the Frankie Valli venue but had plenty of time to casually eat dinner and catch the shuttle to the Wortham. Service was extremely attentive. Wonderful place for dinner.

My friend and I were going to the theater so we decided to go to Damian's . We had a wonderful meal with wonderful waitstaff. After a leisurely dinner, we were told our theater shuttle was waiting. We were dropped off and picked up at the front of the theater . Also, even though the restaurant was closed, the maitre d' waited for everyone's return in the event they needed anything. Damian's is a lovely restaurant with great food so it's my new favorite restaurant .
