I hope you remember me,
We met each other at the entrance where you welcomed me with a distinctive elegance so that we felt interested in visiting the restaurant and its menu described by you in an excellent manner.
My wife and I were so

I was hesitant to go to the theatre distric for dinner, we are New Yorkers and know better than to go there for fine dining. Anyhow we went to DA Marino and what a shock, it was AMAZING. The food is excellent and Pasquale now makes

Let's put is this way. I just created an account to write a review for this scam. They must be padding the reviews because there is no way anyone could walk out of that place and not feel cheated. I'm from NY and stay away from that area like the plague, but I just saw a great show and figured I'd give it a chance. Big mistake. I paid $160 for a horrible meal for my girlfriend and myself. We only had two entreats and a carafe of bad wine. They tried to put us in the corner where you could hardly move, I immediately told them we'd like another seat as I had to move the table every time I got up or down (I'm 5'9 and 160 lbs, if I can't fit it's probably too small). Then, they move us right in front of their kitchen door which then proceeded to open and close every two seconds providing an annoying backdrop to the mediocre piano (of course after the meal i learned that this cost me an extra 20$, they don't tell you, but there's a 18% service charge. This doesn't cover the tip, this is for the piano, candles and flowers. wtf. That's why i'm paying 40$ for my meal. That covers everything). We ordered a special which wound up costing $42 for mine and $45 for my girlfriend. That really upset me as everything on the menu was from $22-$32. The food was cold, the place was cold, the service was horrible. Please, Please never go there.

Oh, and I couldn't complain because the manager was in a heated argument with one of his staff members (something about one of them stealing money) during our entire dinner. This took place right behind my table. This makes NY look bad.

Da Marino's is my absolute favorite restaurant in New York. I moved here a couple of months ago and stumbled upon Da Marino's after I saw Chicago. From my very first time there, the service was incredible, the food to die for and the atmosphere just superb. I have never experienced such great customer service as I did from the entire staff at Da Marino's. Every time I go there I get a different meal and I am more and more pleased every time - I have never had such delicious food (even in Italy). The food just melts in your mouth! There is nothing to top off the night at Da Marino's like their desserts. The dessert plates have cake and fruit and the presentation of everything there is beautiful. The atmosphere is the best in the city. This is a great spot for a girls night out, romantic first date or just if you want to grab a bite to eat! The live piano every night makes for an especially fun experience! I have been back once a week since my first time there and have recommended everyone I know there (friends, family, visitors and even my boss and I went there together for lunch). Your experience in NYC won't be complete without a visit here!

AWFUL. we ate a medicore meal with borderline rude service and then received a check with a 20% service charge for "flowers and music" which the waiter barked was NOT his tip. who do these people think they're ripping off? we live a few blocks away and will never go back. there are FAR better restaurants in midtown.

we went here for a meal before the theatre. i guess they thought we were tourists. the food was average, the service rushed, and at the end we were presented with a $19 service charge "for the music and the flowers"!!!! we were reminded that it "wasn't a tip". WHAT A RIP OFF! we are fighting the charge with our credit card company and definitely will not be back!!!! BUYER BEWARE!

I went there the other day for a glass of wine after a show. The food was very average, raviolli and chicken parm but what made this place stand out is the crowd. There were so many interesting people in one place and everyone was so friendly that I felt like part of this huge fun American Italian family.
To my utter shock Mr. Big from SATC was there! I kid you not! The man was just hanging out with everyone at the bar. He looked just like on TV. There were some very beautiful women having a good time and it was just like a big fiesta...mind ya, this was a Monday night too. The music was fantastic! The piano man played some favorite jazz standards while some fantastic singers sang anything from Sinatra to opera. I think this is the most fun I've ever had at a restaurant in my life...so much for the random little Italian joint. The waitresses were kind of cute but very stand offish and looked like they couldn't wait for it all to be over. but whatever. The place is a blast!

For our first Valentine's Day as a married couple, my wife and I had 6PM reservations at Da Marino, with theater tickets for 8PM. When we arrived at 6PM, we were told, along with several other people waiting with reservations, that it would be a few minutes. When pressed, the maitre d' kept saying 10 minutes or a few minutes. They did give a few parties, including ours, a free glass of champagne while we waited. However, we were not seated until 6:50PM. At that point we ordered a couple of glasses of wine (watered down) and when it arrived, were asked to move to another table to accomodate a larger group. We agreed, but were forced to carry our menus, wine, and napkins with us. When we were re-seated we told our waitress about our theater tickets, ordered, and were assured we would have no time issues. We quickly received our appetizers, lobster and crab salad and caprese, which were good, but overpriced due to a shortened holiday menu. The bread we got was somewhat stale, and the bottle of olive oil was taken off of our table without us being asked if we were done. We were done with our appetizers at 7:15 and our waitress came by every 5 to 10 minutes to assure us our main course was on its way. At 7:45 I approached the maire'd and told him we had to be at the theater in 15 minutes and had yet to receive our main course. He didn't say anything to me but went toward the kitchen. A minute later the couple next to us, who had been seated well after us, received their main course. We received no acknowledgement from our waitress or the maitre'd, so simply got up and left the restaurant, with nobody trying to stop us. The restaurant was clearly overcrowded and overwhelmed and did not know the meaning of a reservation. We managed to enjoy our show but would have preferred to have actually eaten and enjoyed our dinner on Valentine's Day. With so many good restaurants in the neighborhood, please stay away from this one.

We stopped in after seeing a show for dessert and a glass of wine. It was a great place to sit and have a drink. The staff was so incredibly nice! Had a very nice house wine and a delightful chocolate cake. What a great way to wrap up a wonderful evening in the city.

I decided to give this restaurant a try just by the reviews posted here...& I'm sorry to have to say..."NO!" I think I would have been better off going to Olive Garden down the street. The service was good, the food had no taste & the sauce on my pasta was watery/runny. The "garlic toast" was so hard it burned the roof of my mouth & burnt. The price would have been ok if the food was great! Definitely, do not recommend to anyone trying to seek something a little more authentic (than Olive Garden) & will not be returning. We were seated next to the kitchen & an exit door (which they came to open once while we were eating)...the one menu item that was great were the scalloped potatoes.

Restaurant was recommended by the hotel Mayfair (excellent cheap hotel) on the same street. Service and ambience excellent. The salad and appetizer were great. The main course not so. My pasta was not quite cooked, much less al dente. My wife had a dish with calamari, mussels, shrimp and clams. The clams were the size of a fingernail, the mussels had a sewer taste. Wine was great thought. Caraffe of wine, appetizer, 2 salads, 2 entrees for $130 plus tip? Should be no complaints at all. We were going to Babbo but talked out of it. Never been to Babbo yet, wish we had nowl

My wife and I went there for lunch right around noon. The restaurant was not crowded, which was nice. We made the mistake of ordering the lunch pre-fixed menu. We both ordered the soup and the pasta with proscutto & peas and a bottle of Chianti. They did not have the wine that we wanted, so we ordered Chianti by the glass. They were also out of the soup that came with the special, but they did substitute with another soup that was more expensive. The pasta dish came out with no proscutto and we had to send it back, but after that it was fine. I think it would have been better if we didnt order the special.

My friend & I discovered DaMarino's by accident in 1997 and have made it our first stop for dinner every time we visit the city. We have recommended this restaurant to all our friends who plan on going to NYC. The ambience is quaint and reminiscent of my trips to Italy. My favorite dish is the salmon alla grilla. This is a must for anyone looking for true Italian cuisine.

My fiance and i first went there for dinner on a recommendation from a friend 2 years ago when we were visiting from LA. We ended up staying until 2 am. Now, we live in New York and take EVERY person who visits us there for dinner. The pasta's the best I've had outside of Tuscany and the owner loves to croak out lounge and Italian folk songs in a thick accent while his staff dances and jokes with customers... the food's unbeatable and the atmosphere is like a small family-run trattoria in Montepulciano.

Enjoyed myself so much I went back again with different friends. It was great, again. The food is delicious. The spaghetti sides are a little smaller than I would have anticipated, but the taste is so amazing that this could be the reason you are left wanting more. The red snapper with tomatoes, capers and olives was almost melted in my mouth. For me the best is the house salad. I don't know who makes the dressing, but I would bottle it. Try the vanilla ice cream, its worth it even if you are bursting at the seams. Again, another great experience...and yes, more kisses from the manager!
