Delicious food but not unique. Crowded. A bit expensive. Hard to hear even at a small table next to the window. Noise level increased as people ate and drank more. Will try something that the chef has uniquely made in the local Davio's otherwise it feels like eating at any very high end steakhouse. Dessert biscotti was very tasty.

Wow, what a great experience! My wife Terri and I dined at Davio’s for the first time, and we were totally impressed! Phenomenal meal from start to finish. My wife had the diver sea scallops served over a sweet con compote and I had the Mediterranean Branzino which was seared and placed over farro and sautéed spinach. Outstanding! We shared the pasta appetizer which had 5 large shrimp. Again, excellent. Dessert was the carrot cake, which was out of this world.

Service was spot on. Great job to Jordan, our server. She was great! Tremendous being at Davio’s!!!

My wife and I were in Philadelphia the night before a wedding, and wanted to have a special evening out. Davio’s was among the spots we researched, considering proximity to our hotel, quality of food, and ambience. Our dining experience was wonderful, our waiter was helpful in all aspects. His guidance with our wine selection saved us money and provided us with a great bottle of wine. His assistance with our food order helped to us to understand aspects of several offerings we were interested in. He seemed to be attentive to our needs, and not be overly intrusive. He was a professional. Overall we had a wonderful meal and a great experience.

This was our third trip to Davios and it has become one of our favorite spots in Center City Philadelphia. Everything served is perfection and the service can not be beat. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and were attentive without being intrusive. We will come again and recommend to others. The only thing I’d change would be to soften the noise level, but it wasn’t too bad.

Four of us had a delicious dinner with a variety of entrees. The steak eaters declared their steaks as one of the best ever. The short rib and pasta entrees were also a hit. The service was excellent and bring your own wine on a Sunday is an added bonus . Lovely atmosphere. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Davios.

Great food, great service. But saw a cook or someone who worked there walking around without a uniform wearing a white T-shirt and black pants. If I’m dining here, I don’t want to look at a man walking around in a white Hanes t-shirt like he owns the place. Yes, he worked there and it was so not classy for a place like David’s. Will not be returning, which is a shame since the food and service were great.

Always a memorable time. For years now we have been dining here and the only complaint I ever had was when we asked the bartender in one of our anniversary dinners a recommendation of a sweet drink and he really could provide it and seem bother by the question so we learn not to ask them directly but that doesn’t ruin the amazing job the waiter do for the customers and the amazing food that hits the spot every time. It’s sad that this might be our last time in the Northeast but if we ever make the trip up here this place will definitely be on our top to do list.

This was my seventh time at Davio’s. Every experience has been great. This past Saturday my only complaint was the server was not attentive. My prior visits the servers were outstanding. It may have just been an off night for the server. Brandon who was either the wine steward or maître d’ was absolutely outstanding. I would highly recommend going to Davio’s. You will love it. The food is incredible.

If you love meat, this is your place. Had the pork chop - not the most tender I have ever had, but good enough. My wife had halibut with lobster which she loved. Very pricey restaurant. Great location and very classic dining room.

Make sure you ask for Omar!

My wife and I were looking for an upscale dinner while we were spending the night in Philly.
After searching different locations, I came across Davio's menu. Once I saw the Lobster Risotto (My wife's favorite) I knew this was where we were going.

Right away I knew we made the right choice.

The dining area was quiet, the staff was friendly and the food was amazingly delicious.

Our waiter Omar was especially amazing! He was attentive and friendly. We joked around a little and had some good conversation. Make sure you request Omar when you go!

The rest of the staff and managers also checked in on us which always is a plus at any restaurant.

Definitely add Davio's to your list of must visit places in Philly.

I have never been to this location ever before. I have to say our server was one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Incredible recommendations, food, ambiance, and staff. We had the executive chef Christopher come touch our table and the sommelier recommended an incredible wine selection!! One of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had!!! I will return and will be telling everyone how incredible the meal was. Thank you!

We stopped at the bar for a cocktail. Drinks were great and both bartenders were very charming and engaging. Then we went to our table which was at the other end of the restaurant. Ok we could people watch and enjoy the scene. But it went downhill from there. It took 3 requests to get popovers that were not cold. Entree's were the pan roasted lobster and lobster risotto. They were ok not anything to order again. Service was spotty at best and with our table location we could see our server being extremely attentive to his other tables . Very frustrating. We had high hopes but they were dashed by the subpar service and mediocre food. We told the hostess on the way out we should have eaten at the bar.

Davio's is my go to place when visiting the city. It is consistently enjoyable, with good food service and ambiance. It is to the point that the staff know us and we know the staff. The menu shifts throughout the year, but is always worth trying.
Even had on of the staff recognize I graduated from VA Tech and their nicknamed the "Hokies". Way to go.

I had the crab cake sandwich without the roll. Although the crabcake was a good size, it was largely flavorless and also had been burned in spots.
