It took over 30 minutes for our entree to arrive. When we asked the waitress, she explained that it happens all the time!! Although we are accustomed to tables being close togther at establishments in the theater district, a table for 4 behind us vacated and was quickly transformed into a table for 6. We had to pass food, requests, bills etc. over that table and there certainly was no comfortable way to get to the rest room and back again.

The service was way too slow. It took about 40 minutes from when we finished eating to when we got the bill and paid. Plus, the waitress was pretty rude. The food was good, but not worth the price.

Since we were late for our dinner reservations at another restaurant before going to see a show we were very lucky to get in at the last minute. The place was very busy but we were accomodated and made to feel very comfortable in this very tight fit restaurant. The pasta was very good, especially the dishes that had the vodka in them. Since it was busy service was a bit slow and they forgot my side pasta with my main dish. There were many other things that looked worth trying. A very pleasant expericence for xmas vacation.

Although it is located in a basement, I thought the atmosphere was really nice. The bar is beautiful and the walls are all decorated with beautfiul paintings of the Italian country side. The hostess and waiters were excellent. But unfortunately, I thought the food wasn't impressive. I was there for their lunch menu ($12.50 for 2 courses). I started with salad which was fine. But for lunch I got the capellini pomodoro and it was so bland. My friend got the chicken milanese and she wasn't impressed either. It came with a lot of lettuce on top and not as much chicken. So all in all - cute atmosphere and great service but the food was really disappointing. For the price and the location, I might try it again with different dishes though.

I have stayed at the Mayfair for years and for some reason never saw Da Marino. Last nights dinner 12/16/05 was simply wonderful. Cozy atmosphere; great service and the Chicken Rollatini was probably the best I have eaten outside of Italy. There was a slight mix-up with our order and they gave us a free glass of wine. All in all, a wonderful experience for us and I would go back in a heart-beat!

I don't think these people went to the same restaurant we went to. The people that said it looked like a cave stayed to eat there didn't they? It is downstairs, however, it is a very beautiful restaurant and I've recommended it to many people. There are painted murals giving the restaurant a very cozy atmosphere. It is dark by the bar, but that is in the front and it is candlelit, wouldn't you want that at the bar? The restaurant is towards the back and well worth the trip. We've been there more than 4 times since September. The meals are fairly resonable for that vacinity. You can pay more for a hamburger at some of the places around there.

I found this restaurant by accident. Needed a place to have dinner with 3 others and wanted to be in the heart of the theatre district. Service was very good. We told the waitress we were going to the theatre and wanted to be out in about an hour. She was friendly and attentive. Water glasses always filled and bread served promptly. The salad was not impressive, but our meals were quite good. I wasn't overly impressed with the wine list, but it was okay. Overall, we all agreed that it was a very good experience and we would definitely return. The bill was presented promptly and we wound up lingering a little over coffee as we still had time to make the show.
