Don was great. Bibb salad should be an entree. Braised short ribs were very good.

Food was delicious- appetizers AND entrees (we all tried each other's). The venue is gorgeous. The service was good, we certainly have no complaints, it just was not outstanding.

I was very disappointed with my experience at Davio's for Mother's Day Brunch. I had high expectations going in but was let down. The food wasn't that good and it took forever to be served. I understand it was a busy day, but they need to do a better job. The brunch options were limited and the value was not there for the food.

Wow! So glad we chose Davio's for our daughter's college graduation lunch! It had been 15 years since I last dined there while on a business trip to Philadelphia before we moved here. But I remembered great food and beautiful surroundings. That is still true! This is one of the most gorgeous rooms in the city. Instantly you get a special-but-not-stuffy vibe. Service is friendly and very professional. And the food! Our party ranged in age from 21 to 88 and everyone found something they loved. The $28 Power Lunch (three courses) is a great value. We split an order of the mushroom gnocchi for the table (to die for) and the Spring Roll Sampler. Both were delicious! Two of us got pizzas that were excellent, with plenty to take home and nosh on later. Entree salads with perfectly cooked salmon and rare tuna were on point. The shrimp pasta Power Lunch entree was wonderful. Desserts were amazing. They even brought a special dessert for our daughter with a congratulations message on the plate. She serves at another highly rated Philly restaurant and she was quite impressed! Overall a perfect experience, exactly what we wanted on this special day. Hats off to Davio's!

We loved Davios. Service was so friendly and efficient. Food was outstanding. Would definitely go again. Their price range was great. You could get an $18 pasta dish to a $40+ steak dinner. Nice wine selection too.

I took my mother to a celebration lunch. She ordered the Power Lunch. The smoked trout on the antipasto was sparse and hard to identify.

The chicken was fried very crisp and it was dry and difficult to eat

The cost was expensive the quality was poor.

The waiter was very good

My assistants and I had a delightful meal with attentive service and outstanding food quality and presentation. The broiled salmon, which is one of my favorites, was enjoyed by my guests, and I enjoyed the lemon sole with risotto which was superb.

Altogether a great dining experience. The management and staff of Davio’s always makes you feel as if you are their must important client- something that many restaurants in Philadelphia have yet to learn!

I generally enjoy dining at Davio's but Easter Sunday service was sub-par. The food looked and tasted as if it had been prepared the night before, and service was lackluster. Rethinking my plans for future dining at Davio's.

Davio’s was great! Our food was really good, I really enjoyed my calamari! I also enjoyed my short ribs! I’ve never had such tender short ribs in my life! Everything was yummy! I should of took pictures of everything we ordered! The food was so tasty I completely forgot!! However the service was fair. Our waiter was pretty good in the beginning but kind of forgot about us in the end. 30 minutes after we ate, we sat there and sat there waiting for the dessert cart to come around. Also, my boyfriends birthday cake took a while to come out. This doesn’t change how I feel about the restaurant, everything was tasty and I’d go back again.

The food and service was excellent. There were several large groups there, but the acoustics seem to keep the volume pretty low. Had the gluten-free menu and it was very flavorful and filling. My only disappointment would be the creamed corn, it was kind of bland and didn’t really do anything for the perfectly seared scallops. Great place for a family dinner, a date night or a celebration.

The chopped salad was OK, but the main courses were disappointing. The crab cakes for an entree were two small appetizer size portions. The filet, which was to have been well done, was medium at best and inedible. The steamed vegetable was full of garlic.

To the restaurant's credit, both entrees were removed from the bill.

A return visit? Not for a long time.

I went with a friend to Davio's for a late birthday celebration. We were early and seated immediately, and I had the chicken with penne dish. It was delicious, a good portion for the price and filling. Our server even provided a dessert treat to us for our birthday event. All in all it was a great experience and I'm glad to have gone there.

This is a beautiful restaurant. Food is Italian and there are many other options. Instead of a basket of bread they bring each diner a popover, and they are delicious. Most of us had a half portion of one of their pasta dishes and found it to be more than enough for dinner. They also let two of us split a salad, and again that was plenty for a first course. They were sensitive to our need to reach a 7:30 curtain at the Kimmel Center.
