Davio's - Philadelphia
The food and service wereThe food and service were wonderful! The drinks at the bar before dinner were reasonable and the bartenders could not have been more welcoming and great to speak with! I will be back and have already recommended to a friend in Philly this week on business.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect mothers dayThis restaurant made this the perfect mothers day as our waiter was a lot of fun and recommended some really tasty food. I will definitely be recommending this place to all of my friends!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Venue for a Celebration!Great service, great meal and a very nice ambiance for a celebration. Every time I've been here they've surpassed themselves. The only odd thing was that someone from management started hovering at the end of our meal and well before we were given our check. The restaurant was half empty (with places for large parties still), so the extra surveillance was puzzling and the only off note of the evening.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove Expectation!So good that we have decided to hold our rehearsal dinner here! They have a private room on the second floor with a terrace and gorgeous skyline view. Food was outstanding, specifically the chicken parm, chicken/blue cheese, shrimp and philly cheese steak spring roll appetizers all served with their own sauces as well as the salmon salad and filet dinners. Menu contains a lot of variety, thus there is something to please everyone. Looking forward to the rehearsal dinner next year!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!First visit to Davio's. Very attentive wait staff who all
addressed us personally by name. Delicious salmon and
branzino meals. Timely service helped us get to the
symphony on time. Very pleased!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCould not have been betterWe ate at Davio's Saturday night 9pm- 4 adults and 1 child (6yo). The food was beyond outstanding but what made us all stop and say WOW was the customer service. From the moment we checked- until we walked out we were referred to by name by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Our bar check was effortless transferred to our table. Drink and food recommendations were great. At some point my son was tired so "Noodles" the creative server brought my son his noodles in 2 minutes. After he ate, kiddo wanted to lie down in the bay window next to our table and before his head hit the wood, he was cushioned with clean folded up linens and covered like it was a blanket and mattress store. We were even sent home with cookies to wake up to :)5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThey provided impeccable serviceThey provided impeccable service with food that matched. Even though this is an old standard we were so pleased.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAn enjoyable dining eventThe food and service was fine, but we were seated at a small and poorly lit table. The wait staff was excellent and truly attended to our every need. We've been coming to Davio's for many years and would certainly return, but will request a better table.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThe food was amazing! It all started with the complimentary bread that was delivered with two spreads and some marinated olives. We got two appetizers, Philly cheesesteak rolls and the calamari fried. Then we got the short ribs and prime flat iron steak. Everything was very good. The servers were very attentive and took the time to really explain the menu. Our overall experience was excellent. It is a little pricey so we would only go back for a special occasion.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Davio's twiceI've been to Davio's twice and both times I've had an awesome experience. The food is great and the service is very friendly and diligent. The menu is great with lots of options.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLooking forward to going backThe service and food was outstanding. We were a group of 8 and the level of service by the staff was exceptional4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent place to take clientsThe food is always consistent, well-presented and excellent. Service is outstanding. Maybe the server's English isn't perfect, but lots of personality and attentiveness more than compensates. Will definitely will return.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated our weddingWe celebrated our wedding anniversary at Davio's 2 years in a row and will continue. Davio's is the perfect place !4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDavio's is one of Philadelphia'sDavio's is one of Philadelphia's hidden treasures. Whenever we come to visit, dinner here is a MUST. The food is exquisitely prepared and elegantly presented. It doesn't get much better than that.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMW ehave eaten there many timesW ehave eaten there many times and it always is agreta experience4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful experienceWe had a wonderful experience at Davios - celebrated our 24th anniversary. The food and service were outstanding - a special recognition to Joe with whom we had a delightful conversation about wines and he went to extra effort to provide us some label information on wine we tried for the first time. My only suggestion would be perhaps better communication between the sommelier and the servers on what wines he is currently out of as it took close to 25 minutes from the time we placed our wine order until we were actually served (and that was after the first 2 selections were not available) Otherwise, a truly delightful experience.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, I enjoyed my experienceOnce again, I enjoyed my experience there. The food is always greeat and our server, Jordan was EXCELLENT!!! Keep up the great work!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were extremely happy withWe were extremely happy with everything Davio's had to offer. The food was excellent as well as the service. Would definitely go back. My son recently got engaged. We are thinking of possibly having the rehearsal dinner at Davio's.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining The Way It Ought to BeThis was my first trip to Davio's and I'll definitely be back. The room is stunning, the tables have enough space between them to provide privacy and the service was exceptional.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Sister's BirthdayI brought my Sister to Davio's for her birthday she's been asking to go forever so I wanted to make her day special. I am so pleased with the service as well as the food everything was amazing. Their staff is so friendly and professional they attended to her every need. She felt so special they said all said Happy birthday to her and they decorated her desert plate with Happy Birthday & her name it was soo nice, We really enjoyed ourselves I will be back soon.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite place for a businessMy favorite place for a business lunch! Beautiful room, excellent service, great food. One of the few places in the center of town where you can have some privacy and where it is quiet enough to have a serious conversation. There is something for everyone on the menu which is large and varied, and encompasses a broad price range.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest service in town! ServersBest service in town! Servers very attentive and polite. Food was overall delicious. Beet salad lacked flavor and needed more goat cheese, would not order again. My husband ordered Kobe meatball and that was delicious. My scallops were seared perfectly! My husband's NY Strip was very flavorful. Blue crab risotto and asparagus were great additions to our meal. Chocolate soufflé was rich and a perfect way to finish the meal.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways impresses....Service was outstanding....2 waiters per table (one for drinks and desserts, one for food) is a great concept. Menu is big and everything is delicious, albeit expensive, but if you're in for a treat and are willing to blow the cash, Davio's never, ever disappoints.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Anniversar and BirthdayThis was my second visit to Davio's but the first time with my husband! We were in Philly celebrating our anniversary and his birthday. I requested a window table and we were seated at a perfect table for two by the window.
Our servers were superb! Christian and Neil were attentive, informative, extremely professional and personable!
The meal was outstanding --the calamari is the very best we have ever had--melted right in your mouth! Our entrees were outstanding and everything was timed perfectly.
Even our drinks, Manhattans and Sidecars were wonderful. We would recommend Davio's to anyone who wants to experience a fabulous dinner with awesome service!!!!!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience. TheExcellent experience. The food was very well prepared and presented. Highly recommend the spring rolls--certainly the highlight of the meal. The atmosphere was perfect for a special dinner occasion. The service was outstanding. very attentive group without being intrusive. It will likely cost you $150 for two people with tip. But, it is well worth the price for a special dinner experience.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways specialAlways special. We usually go on a birthday or other event. It's a wonderful restaurant and worth going anytime the mood hits you for outstanding food and service4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent! Business or Pleasure!Simply an excellent restaurant! Ettore and his staff make every visit top notch, whether for a business lunch or a dinner with friends, Davio's is simply an excellent place to dine and feel like a VIP! I have had the fish, the steak, the soup and the appetizers and honestly, it’s all great, and when you add on the professional service…it becomes one of Philadelphia’s Best Restaurants!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDavio'sThe food was excellent, I especially loved that fact that's could turn my entree into a smaller portion. This gave me the opportunity to order an appetizer. The wait staff were very attentive and knew the menu well.

Very friendly, helpful and unobtrusive.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDavio's team executed fantasticDavio's team executed fantastic service during our dinner! Food was great. One note to mention is that there was a significant delay between appetizer and entree to the tune of 25 minutes. I know it was prime-time and the kitchen got backed up, but a simple word from our server ensuring our meal was on the way would have made the difference between Very good and Excellent.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great restaurantThis is a great restaurant - found it 8 years ago when working on a long term project in Philadelphia and couldn't wait to return.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd time there, food and service2nd time there, food and service are wonderful.

One of the best restaurants in Philly.12/29/2012 12:00:00 AMAlways a great dining experienceReturn trip to Davios after visiting with a larger group during the summer. Food and execution sparkle. You will not be disappointed in anything you order be it the fresh fish or fresh pasta options, and the steaks are simply what they are known for. There is however a catch. Stay away from the Wine List. On our last visit our waiter rolled three overpriced wines into the bill and put a mandatory 21% gratuity on top. This time, a $12.99 bottle of La Marca Prosecco was selling for $50. Literally more than 4x the face amount at a wine and spirit store. As a VIP diner that eats out several times a week, I'm accustomed to paying high prices on quality wine but when the restaurant quadruples the price point ... buyer beware.12/28/2012 12:00:00 AM
