Disappointingly salty food from appetizer to entree for restaurant week. Seasonal sampler for dessert also unimpressive. Disappointing because I remember going here before and ordering off of their normal menu and it was amazing, but restaurant week just doesn't live up to their usual food quality. Perhaps it was a different chef or they just don't care to try as hard for restaurant week. Service was still great, food - for restaurant week - was just... disappointing.

I dined here with a party of 3 during Philadelphia restaurant week. We started off with the cheese steak rolls and buffalo chicken rolls. They were pretty good. My husband had the short ribs, I had the lobster risotto, my friend had the filet mignon with asparagus, and her husband had the lobster risotto. We thoroughly enjoyed our entrees. Our desserts were also very tasty (flowerless chocolate cake, cake sampler, vanilla gelato and chocolate syrup). We plan to return to Davio’s again in the near future.

Hi!
Oh my goodness, first timer and definitely will be returning! Went for lunch/brunch on Sunday and was greeted right away, and taken to our table. Our waitress was very helpful when it came to recommendations of wine and a dish to pick. My boyfriend LOVED they beef ribs (which the waitress recommended), I had the chicken panini and it was delicious. Everything was so fresh and flavorful.

We've been dining AT Davio's Philly for years since it opened almost 20 years ago and it NEVER disappoints. The menu is ample with something for everyone along with superb steaks, pastas and seafood, and the food is excellent. The ambiance is lovely and spacious , and the service is impeccable. Davio's Philly has been consistently an excellent choice for fine dining in Center City.

We had a great experience at Davios, again (our second time). They were very attentive and food was very good. We also received a 15% discount on food because of having a room at Club Quarters, which is a nice perk to know.

Consistently good food on an interesting and varied menu. This was a birthday celebration for my partner. We had a great time, and the service we received was friendly yet highly professional. Neil was not working that day but we did not miss a step with our server, Christian.

Davio's absolutely exceeded our expectations! We went for a date night at 8pm on New Years Eve, and not only was the restaurant running like a well-oiled machine, the noise level wasn't outrageous at all, we didn't wait long for any of our drinks or food, and Tanya took phenomenal care of us, including recommendations and the perfect amount of attention. We had the grilled octopus appetizer that was honestly incredible, a delicious bucatini dish, I had filet and he had the veal chop. Both (all) were amazing and perfectly prepared. We were so full we couldn't even look at the dessert cart, but I couldn't give this experience any higher of a review. Absolutely recommend.

I believe Davios has the best service in the city and the food quality is second to none...especially for someone with Celiac. What an amazing opportunity to enjoy Italian favorites (including a special GF bread) that are gluten free! This is our favorite restaurant in the city.

Great Italian steakhouse, but with a varied and appealing menu. Server was informative and attentive. My husband had wonderfully tender and juicy roasted chicken and I had pasta in a light red sauce with crab. Both simple but perfectly done. Pineapple cake for dessert was light and refreshing. Sophisticated and civilized atmosphere in a spacious second floor setting with large windows.

First time and it was a treat worth waiting for. Staying at the Palomar where they gave Davio’s great reviews. They weren’t wrong. Maria steered me to the scallops—excellent, and the Justin Bieber onion rings. She did a great job as did the chef and the rest of the very attentive staff.

We had dinner reservations for the feast of the seven fishes on Christmas Eve. The ambience and service was excellent. The lobster bisque was the best part of the meal. The salad had too much shrimp in comparison to the other higher quality portions of fish and the tails were still on most of them. The sea bass entree was cold and seemed as if it were pre-cooked to keep up with the anticipated volume of reservations.

Davio's is a hit every time, and this was no exception. I had a fish combo (lobster, halibut) with a sauce that was so delicious. Their gluten free roles are the best. Enjoyed a Bloody Mary to start the morning off. It was just a great dining experience. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. Can't wait to go back. Mike
