A step above

Obviously this isn't a place to go to everyday, but if you have a special occasion coming up you should definitely consider Da Marco's! Been taking my wife here for years and we will keep coming back.

Fantastic

Frequented this eatery many times, and with the exception of a rude hostess (who no longer works there), everything from the service to the food has been impeccable. The specials are fantastic and staples such as the veal and fish are extremely good

Pretty Expensive, Better Than Average Italian Food

Unlike some others, our service was just fine. The dining room is indeed small and lacks intimacy. Very brightly lit. Hardwood floor makes for a relatively loud dining experience even though the crowd is not rowdy at all. The menu is in Italian with no translations. Sports fans, I've eaten at some of the nicest restaurants in America. This is a little pretentious don't you think? The wine menu is very expensive and not well organized. The sommelier will recommend any of the most expensive wines on the list. If you're not familiar with Italian wines you're going to be lost. In sum, I'm not going here again. The food was good, but not the best Italian I've had and it was very expensive. The menu was an aggravation and the wine list was too.

High End Italian

Da Marco is arguably the best Italian Restaurant in Houston. It is expensive but rightfully so given the unique and upscale items on the menu. I recommend the Business Lunch if you want to try Da Marco. For a reasonable price, you get three courses.

Impersonal service/subpar food

The waiter tried to get us to order our meals as we were odering our drinks.He seemed to be in a big hurry.
Our salads were very salty.We asked the waiter to take them back.He neither apologised nor gladly offered to take them back.When he brought back the salad,it was loaded with vinegar and sour.
The main course was OK,not great.
The service was absolutely impersonal.
The waiter never smiled nor even said good night when we started to leave.
Will not go there again.

Should be called Da Marc-up

Having recently moved to Houston from San Francisco, my husband and I don't mind paying extra for a nice meal. This is NOT THE PLACE for a nice meal. Trust me!! We arrived early for our reservation and decided to wait in the ""bar""- a nasty little corner of the room jammed with people. Having a large wine collection ourselves, we were surprised to see the mark up from retail for their by the glass offerings. Highway robbery. After being seated, the waiter rolled up a chalk board of the specials. Yes, that's right- rolled up a chalk board and left it for our consideration!! We felt like students in a terrible cramped and loud classroom. The restaurant itself is in an old house kind of place with creaking wood floors that serve to amplify sound. The tables are all jammed together in such a way that one can not avoid hearing the neighboring conversations. Not too romantic, I must say. We chose to order some of the specials as well as some from the menu. All were bland and nasty. I had the fish with artichokes and risotto and it tasted much like paste. Sadly, the rest of the meal was so un-re""marc""able that it has completely left my memory. We even tried dessert, hoping for something to save this dismal evening, but it continued the whole tasteless and unmemorable trend. I wouldn't return to this restaurant under any circumstances. I am not a person who gives negative reviews- check out my other ones- but this is one overrated place and people should be warned!!

Best Italian Food

Da Marcos is always one of my top favorites in Italian cuisine! They offer a seasonal menu to keep things fresh and lively. Their food is always elegant and delicious!! A great place to impress a date or for your anniversary!! It's a must go and dine place!!

HIGHLY OVERRATED. Go here because you are told to.

What is it with the reviews of Da Marco- 5 stars by 75% of people? How can 3 in 4 people think this restaurant is ""flawless""??

I can only think of a handfull of places in Houston where the parking lot looks like a Mercedes SUV dealership. Da Marco is one of the culprits. And not without reason- if a 150$ dinner for two is up your alley, then your Range Rover should fit in nicely outside.

The restaurant is not at all as strong as others have suggested. Firstly, the service is a bit off-putting. It seems as if the snobbiness of the ""discerning clientele"" has rubbed its way off onto the waitstaff. It seemed to me that taking our order and being attentive to us was a burden.

The food is not a deal maker either. All of the dishes we tasted were EXTREMELY salty- to the point of inedibility. The wine was expensive and bad and did not pair well with our dishes (even though we asked for specific recommendations). We left our dishes and left the restaurant and will not be returning.
