First Visit - Mother's Day
Very good in every way. Our server, Sean, was the best! Called me by (last) name, which was a very nice touch. Only complaint is that the high-backed chairs and crowded table placement made moving around (entering, going to rest room, leaving) a bit claustrophobic and maze-like. We will be back.

We went to Davio's as part
We went to Davio's as part of our anniversary weekend. The staff made it a memorable occasion. We made several requests that deviated from the menu. Everything was excellent, well presented and delicious. The Tuna Tartare was incredible. Bryan did a great job taking care of us.

Good as the Philadelphia location
Here on business, others from our company found out we had reservations, we quickly went from a party of 8, to a party of 15. I called, asked if that would be okay. Saying they could handle our group, twenty minutes later our group grew to 24. Another call to the restaurant and magically they were able to entertain all two dozen, on their outdoor patio. From cowboy rib-eye steaks, ahi Tuna, pasta dishes, and a dozen bottles of wine - it's safe to say - our entire crew truly enjoyed this wonderful meal. As a regular at the Davio's in Philadelphia, Phillip the GM shared with me that in addition to the Philadelphia and Boston locations, soon New York will have their own Davio's too. Safe to say, Atlanta's restaurant is just as great!

Big Ups for Davios
Great place to dine for any occasion -- great food, ambiance, service.

I went to Davio's last night with co-workers for an early dinner. Two glasses of wine, two appetizers, three entrees, three desserts, and two coffees, plus tax and tip came to $190. Service was excellent, food was delicious. Would definitely go again. Very attentive waiter when we needed him and not in our way when we didn't need him.

A great night out
I recently visited Davio's with 3 other friends for dinner on a Saturday night. The service was excellent! We arrived prior to our reservation time so we could have a drink at the bar first. The bartender, Alan, was the best!! Once it was time for dinner we were seated on the patio, at our request, and we had a wonderful dinner. The food was excellent and so was our waiter! This is a great restaurant for a date night, to celebrate a special occasion or just a fun night out with friends.

My husband and I had a very nice lunch at Davio's this weekend. We thought the executive lunch was a great deal (salad, entree and beverage). The grilled cheese panini wasn't my favorite, but it was okay. Very greasy though. Also, although our server was great and very nice, the lady at the hostest desk was not as pleasant. I believe this was the same person who called me to confirm my reservation and was not very friendly. Then when we arrived she took us to our table but was not happy about it. Overall the restaurant was great, they just need a new hostess. We will go back the next time we're down at Phipps.

Davio's - pleasant, fun!
Davio's was spectacular! Our third time there with exceptional experience.
6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service here is superb and the food is delicious. Davio's takes catering to the likes of it's clientele very seriously. You can tell this is accomplished by the likes of its consistent Buckhead returning customers. Great adult, sophisticated eating establishment. Oh yeah- the bar gets buzzing Friday & Sarurday nights.

This place is great! We had
This place is great! We had split the chopped salad, she ordered the chicken livers and I ordered the sausage pasta. All of the dishes were excellent.

We love Davio's and our server, Jerry made our experience especially enjoyable this past visit. It was our 7 year anniversary and he truly made it a memorable experience. We will be back and all of our friends commented on our facebook post on how much they love Davio's too!

Excellent Food & Fantastic Service
We have experienced brunch and the executive lunch. The meals, particuarlly the corn soup and swordfish entree were delicious. The attentiveness of our waiter was impressive. The decor is upscale and perfect for intimate dining or a group gathering. We will definitely, gladly frequent Davio's again.
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Almost All Occassions
Love having Davio's close by! The food, wine and service are oustanding! Have had business lunches and dinners, and social evining meals there as well as a party. I and all my guests have only had exceptional meals, including holidays. There private rooms are great for business and private functions. They messed up one of our party reservations, but still accomodated us and went over the top to make-up for the error. The only reservation I have is on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings between 5:00 and 8:00 PM, the bar scene can be noisey, which carries over to the dining area. Otherwise this restaurant gets 5 Stars!
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Restaurant was very accommodating of our large party and unique dietary needs. A pleasurable experience with incredible food!

Hidden gem in Buckhead
I have eaten all over Buckhead and its environs over the years but it took a friend from Vermont to recommend Davios!! Nice atmosphere and can eat outside. Food of above average quality and excellent "same time" food presentation at table.
Half portion pastas are amazing and plentiful so if you go appetizer(s) and half pasta most folks will be sated.

business lunch gourmet
The prix fixe provided a tasty break from business lunch tedium. Promptly, professionally served.

Everything was fantastic. Really enjoyed our dinner.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time.visiting but on our radar for some time. Can't speak highly enough about the service provided table side by Ian and overall by Claude. Nothing beats their experience and caring attitude. Food served quickly, with excellent presentation, phenomenal flavors and perfect attention to every detail. Our party of four could not have been more pleased. Go! It's worth it!!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful fine dining experience. The staff was attentive and helpful. The food was all you might expect in an expensive Italian steakhouse. This was special occasion dining for my party, well worth the choice. We would definitely go back!

I took a co-worker to lunch
I took a co-worker to lunch for her birthday and from the time we walked in - it was amazing. We were promptly seated, hooks were brought to the table for our handbags (I hate for mine to touch any floor) and we had two servers who took care of every request pronto!

Great first experience. Celebrated our wedding anniversary and they made it special.

a charming place
First time there. Took a friend for her birthday. We were both so happy to be there. She has called me twice to thank me and tell me how DELICIOUS the food was, how lovely the place was, how good the service was... and, I totally concur. I ordered the lemon ravioli which was sooo good, but, next time I shall order the fried chicken livers, which she had. Tasted it, and it was excellent.
The desserts (a gift from restaurant) were yummy. Maybe she'll take me there for MY birthday in October....
8/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
I recently recommended this restaurant for a business dinner meeting.... and I must say, it was an EXCELLENT choice! My colleagues and business associates think I'm a genius for picking this location! The food was outstanding! Had the spring rolls & calamari as appetizers - which were a hit! All of our meat was cooked to perfection and they had a gluten free pasta dish. Everyone loved it.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went to celebrate a belated birthday with friends and return trip from wine country. Davio's allows you to bring your own wine for a small cork fee ($20/bottle waved on Sunday) We brought with us a couple bottles of Cab to go with the divine Italian dishes we were served. Braised short ribs, veal scaloppini, livers, and risotto were all prepared perfectly. The chef's special appetizer salad prepared with Turkey figs and arugula was a perfect start to the meal. We didn't venture to the steak side of the menu, but if the Italian side is any indication, it is all good. The place was not romantic in the sense that it was packed and loud because the bar is very close to all the tables but we didn't mind. Memorable meal and we will be back!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
enjoyed every part of the evening...food,service,ambience..!!!!!

We chose to sit at the bar because it was late and guys wanted to watch 1st weekend of college football. Bartender very knowledgeable of full menu. Made great suggestions for wine. Food very flavorful. Staff very accommodating.

The food here is always fantastic.
The food here is always fantastic. The "Executive Lunch" is outstanding for the price for this dining establishment. The service is a tad slow at lunch if you are on a lunch hour but fine if you have no time limit. The servers are very good, they just always seem to have to many tables. I love this place and keep going back over and over again because the food is so wonderful and they always make a special occasion out of every meal.

The lunch special was good
The lunch special was good and the pricing was appropriate

I made a reservation for this restaurant to celebrate a belated Grandparents day. We had a private room which I absolutely loved. It made me feel very much separated from the rest of the restaurant. The food selection was awesome and made to perfection. My family loved the choice of the restaurant and you know it can be hard to please everybody. My family and I will be happy to come back.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had some issues with our servers, but Roberto made up for it. Ask for him

Beyond Excellent - One More Time !`
This is a return visit to Davio's - this time with friends who are oenohiles, foodies, and retired restauranteurs. Without question, an exceptional experience from start to finish and all along the way. The best calamari in town, crispy chicken livers to savor, phenomenal crab cake to start. Steaks were fantastic, organic salmon was exquisite, and the short ribs were to die for. And then DESERT! Panna cotta was sublime, molten chocolate cake beyond the norm, and more. We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for business dinners
Great place to go when entertaining busines clients who have different diets. Along with great steak, fresh seafood and home made pasta, they also had a vegan menu. So helpful!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Continuous to be Great
Since moving to the Buckhead neighborhood, we have enjoyed dining at Davios many times. The service (John) is alway excellent and the management is most attentive.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious meal...loved the Executive Lunch specials...small plates perfect for those watching their waistlines, but still loving great food!
Servers were very helpful and friendly.
Happy we had a reservation as the patio filled up quickly.
A most enjoyable Birthday Luncheon....thank you!

Great experience all around
As a group of 8 old friends that have gone from gourmet home cooked meals to getting together in different restaurants this was a hit for us. The service was outstanding, attentive but not interruptive. Everyone was happy with their meal. For an appetizer we recommend the mussels . The salads were fresh and all portions are generous.
All of us will keep this restaurant on a list to revisit.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a fun meal with friends
Davio's will be remembered for highly attentive service that made the experience a pleasure. The evening started with excellent drinks served up, each a perfect pour! The wine list was extensive but the Italian Reds were especially interesting. We enjoyed the Spring Roll Sampler. Dinners were wonderful with all the pasta house-made but the star was the perfectly done veal chop. Everyone will find something they will thoroughly enjoy at Davio's.

My comment is to Open Table.
The reviewer name is a dumb idea. I didn't submit several reviews because I couldn't do a stupid name for myself. You have defeated your intent. Stop wasting my time!

If you're gluten free
Wonderful meal. PDavio's does an excellent job with gluten free choices. They have a special menu with gluten free choices. One of the best we've experienced.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I find this to be an excellent venue for a business lunch. Their executive lunch special is good value, Great friendly service.

Dinner & a Show
We dined here before seeing a show at the Fox Theatre, as part of our ticket offer. The hostess Candice greeted us with a smile and seated us right away. Our server Michael was prompt and friendly. He reviewed the specials and offered his suggestions. The veal tenderloins were hot, juicy, and well-seasoned. The prime top sirloin was prepared as we requested, cooked to the proper temperature. The server was attentive, but did not linger. Complimentary valet parking is a very nice touch, as mall parking can fill up quickly. We would definitely dine here again.

Davio's for Lunch
Davio's Executive Lunch, which is priced at $16, is great. You have a choice of a soup or salad, then one of three entrees, and it includes iced tea or home-made lemonade. I've eaten it on 3 different occasions, and every time it was delicious, and a good value for the cost.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food - Great Experience
Great food and exceptional service. The short ribs and filet mignon were fantastic. Service is high end and bartenders are outstanding. Overall this is a great occasion restaurant.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great place to go
I loved everything about Davios'. I went there for a girls night out. The services was fabulous. We were greeted and asked if we needed anything several times. The wait staff was outstanding - very prompt. The food was delicious. I think the food was priced $$ accordingly...Upscale. I forgot we were inside of Phipps Plaza. I will definitely be back!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dinner and a movie
Made a reservation and was seated immediately when we arrived. Waiter proactively asked if we were planning on going to a movie and took care of service so that we made it just on time. Very attentive. Great food. Huge portions.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went to Davio's last year and this year for Thanksgiving ... Everything was absolutely perfect! Had family in from out of state and they were truly impressed? Service was impeccable and we all felt special! Highly recommend Davio's for any occasion!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took my wife & friend to Thanksgiving dinner and was delightfully pleased with Davio's. Our guest was a bit late but there was no fuss at all...the waiter watched patiently from afar and came to the table when the guest arrived. Although it was a "traditional" Thanksgiving dinner, the flavors were anything but! Our Butternut Squash Soup was so rich and flavorful with a surprise hint of coconut. The turkey & gravy were fine, but the creamed baby onions & peas were delicious, along with the cranberry chutney, sauted kale and sweet potato cubes. For the price, $45. each, an appetizer or dessert should have been included. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service impeccable and the food...well the plates were emptied! Free valet parking.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Don't let the location fool you
This was our first time eating at Davio's, despite eating in Buckhead many times. The food was excellent, as was our waiter. Service overall is terrific. We were there for a Friday lunch and it was not crowded or noisy. We did not save room for dessert, but after seeing the dessert cart on our way out, we wished we were still hungry. While Davio's is located in a mall, do not think that it is similar to other mall-based restaurants; it is much, much better.
