    My husband and I took our daughter and her husband for dinner this week. It was there first anniversary and our 25th. What a special night. Everyone at Davios from the hostess to the manager to our incredible waiter Nick and his team helping us were wonderful. Food was incredible. We all had a steak of somekind and they were all cooked perfectly. Was great to know we could share salads. And of course the desserts were incredible too. They also brought out a plate of peanut butter chocolate sweets and a delicious sweet after dinner wine - their compliments for our celebration. Our new favorite spot for sure

    Found all five of our dinners to be excellent. wISH WE HAD EATEN OUTSIDE SINCE THE NIGHT WS SO LOVELY BUT our group seemed to prefer inside. My salmon was excellent and my husband hasn't stopped raving about his short ribs and warm spinach salad, which was filled with portobello mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes. And don't get him started on his teramisu. Beyond scrumptious. Can't wait to return. Prices weren't cheap but still reasonable for the quality of the food.Was $300 before tip for five of us, including a bottle of wine and two beers, four appetizers and three desserts.

    Went to Davio's last evening and it was awesome!! We arrived early for our reservation, was directed to the bar (it was packed) but opted to just wait. The Hostess kept us updated regarding the readiness of our table. I couldn't get over the menu. Each choice looked better than the next. We started with cocktails which were amazing and not overpriced. My husband made his choice from the "Dine Out Boston" menu (Panzanella Salad and roasted chicken) and I chose from the regular menu (Arugula salad and pan-roasted lobster). We were both so happy with our choice that neither of us wanted to sample the other' dinner. We'll definitely be back!!

    To last in a suburban mall location you need to price your food as others have who have succeeded such as Legal Seafood or The Cheesecake Factory. A sirloin steak for lunch priced at $45? A la carte? This has to be a joke. You are not Ruth's Chris in the Old City Hall. You need a college degree to figure out how to work this menu. The food and decor are great but let people have a complete lunch under $20 and a complete dinner under $35 or you will have to close it down. I'm serious. Also, 70s rock is totally inappropriate background music for what purports to be a classy experience.

    It was a little deceiving from the outside since it appears darker and quieter from the street. Upon entering it is a vibrant, noisy environment with an open kitchen. The food was good and the service was excellent. We had the DineOut Boston menu in which several of the items were delicious. The custard dessert was a little disappointing but okay.

    This was not my first time at this chain but it was my first time at this location. My overall feeling is that it misses the mark, especially when it comes to service. Service was slow and disorganized. Another note is the noise level, with such an open concept it can get very loud when there are a lot of people in the restaurant.

    Menu looked like it had something for everyone. Presentation of meals was suburb which I was not expecting. Tuna steak was the best I think I have ever had and lobster risotto was full of flavor and though filling, light. Wine list was plentiful. Will definitely go back! Upscale, casual.

    The waiter, I forgot his name, was wonderful. Very very attentive delivering superb service. We were celebrating our anniversary and he was very genuine when he wished us a happy one! My fillet was undercooked. He apologized and chastised me for not sending it back. He agreed that it was cooked rare not medium as I had requested. As a result, he did not charge us for our desert. Loved the anniversary plate of dipped strawberries that were delivered to us with a candle to blow out. All in all a great dining experience!

    I love Davio's in Lynnfield. I return time after time because the restaurant delivers on all fronts. This time I brought two of my girlfriends to celebrate a friend's birthday. One of my friend's must eat gluten-free--she loved the restaurant so much she booked her mother's 75 birthday party in the semi-private room for 10! You can't go wrong with any selection on the menu--my friend's had the scallops which were beautifully presented and delicious. I had the special, skirt steak with a truffle risotto--Wow! Dining here is always a treat!

    We had a 7:30 p.m. reservation and were not seated until 8:10. The table that they were saving for us was not available and instead of telling us they seated many other parties before us. When we complained, they gave us the next table. They offered us appetizers at the bar, but there was no way we were going to stand up and eat at the bar. When we got our table they brought us appetizers "of their choice", not ones that we would have selected. The steak that was ordered medium (pink center) was delivered almost raw. It was to be a "special birthday" celebration that was completely ruined by the wait. Our entire party of four all agreed that we would not return to this restaurant.

    I ordered the pork tenderloin medium/but not dry special for the night. It arrived dry and well done. The manger on duty stated "it is difficult for the kitchen to prepare this dish" and so this is the way it is served. Hello! it is your Special. They offered to prepare a veal chop for me. When it arrived I took one bite and it was RAW not rare but RAW. So my 3rd and final selection was a tuna appetizer which they on brought me an appetizer portion not enough to satisfy anyone. In the mean time the 3 other people I was with had to endure and wait for me. The manager did not offer an apology via a gift certificate to come back nor did he apologize on our way out.

    I wanted to treat my daughter to an outstanding lunch so we went to Davio's. I had eaten there in the past and it was excellent. The restaurant was not busy but our luncheon order of pizza and salad took 45 minutes to be delivered. The food was just OK - not what I expected for Davio's. Finally, when the bill arrived we were over-charged ($11 item on bill in error). I will not return to Davio's in Lynnfield.

    Dined on a Friday night. Was not as busy as what I thought it would be. Our server was fantastic. She was knowledgable and enthusiastic about the menu. The crab cake was fantastic. The fried lemon rings make the dish special. I had the sea bass that was cooked perfectly but what is memorable is the roasted corn it was served over. We ordered dessert just because we couldn't say no to our server. The panna cotta was perfect. The ambiance lacks a certain intimacy though. Or maybe it's because the pattern on the chairs reminded me of the furniture in my college.

    Food was great, I'd highly recommend the gnocchi with mushrooms and prosciutto platter appetizer. Quite expensive though- a dinner for 2 without alcohol is easily over $100. Service needs work too. Our waitress was nice but didn't really come check on us after dropping off the food and someone came to offer ground pepper about 15 minutes after we started eating. Nothing bad, just expected more for such a fine dining place with a price to match.

    We frequent the Lynnfield spot for a reason--it is consistently excellent! There is something for everyone on the well-planned menu. I try to order something new every time, but it is hard to do when the memory of the last visit's dish was so delectable. The chicken livers are a must. Tried the meatballs for the first time and they were the best I ever had (shhh...don't tell Mom). Not many places offer veal tenderloin, but at Davio's it is done perfectly and with a lovely presentation.

    This was our second time here. We were seated by a very welcoming gentleman, then our waited came over. She said hi my name is Jen, haven't I waited on you before Ms Lake? We looked at each other and said yes last year when you first opened. She smiled and said I New I recognised you two. Welcome back. WOW! We ordered our salad and dinners with Jen's recommendations of accompanying sauces and everything was great. We definitely won't wait for another special occasion to come back, this may be one of our new regular dinner locations.
