    The restaurant consistently hits it out of the ballpark. My only concern about giving this restaurant such a great review is that it will become too difficult to get a reservation!

    The food was bland with no flavor. We have been dining at this restaurant for many years. But lately the food is not appetizing. ⅖

    We dined here on Easter Sunday. When I made the reservation, I also noted that it was my husband’s birthday (that becomes relevant later). Our server, Fontini, was very pleasant but seemed overwhelmed throughout the service. We needed to request the drinks list, call her over to take our order, catch her attention again to order dessert, and yet again to get the check. Our drinks seem to have had only a passing acquaintance with the spirits that were supposed to have been ingredients. We asked for olive oil for our focaccia bread, but alas it never came. The apps & entrees were delicious, but we did notice servers plating desserts with their (ungloved) hands. While my husband was taking care of the check, I mentioned to Fontini that it was his birthday, and she was not aware of this (not really a big deal if I had not specifically mentioned this upon reservation.) She did however comp us an extra dessert to take home. We understand this was a holiday, but they certainly didn’t do much to earn repeat visits from us, food quality notwithstanding.

    From the moment we arrived, the parking was convenient and close to the entrance. Upon opening the door, there was a beautiful Easter display. We went there for Easter/my mom’s 65th birthday, they had no problem serving us the outside cake we brought, at no extra charge. All the staff were extremely friendly. High recommend! It was a great experience.

    I don't say this often, but The Davenport Press has never disappointed me. My family had dinner there on Easter Sunday. I usually don't eat out on major holidays for typical reasons, you are rushed, food not as good, etc. Not here. The Davenport Press was spot on. We were not disappointed. Everything was delicious. We were not rushed. Our wait staff was great. Thank you!

    The food was tasty and they have a lot of specials which spice up a rather standard menu. The ambience was so-so, very dated - though it was trying for that “through the years” vibe. It’s in an odd location and the clientele seemed to be mostly regulars. Service was attentive. We probably would not return.

    Food was good, service was fair. Waited a long time to be served at the bar and waitress gave the wrong information regarding gluten. Was informed after a few bites that the dinner did in fact have flour in the sauce resulting in not being able to eat the rest of the meal. Had to wait for a steak to be prepared medium rare. Due to the rush, it came out raw in the middle.

    I’ve been going to the Davenport press since the 1980s it was always so quaint and charming. I think they’ve recently tried to change their atmosphere, but they have failed greatly. It’s a mixture of contemporary diner, old world tradition and a jumbled mess. It truly breaks my heart because their menu is delightful. The specials are great. They execute great food they were very friendly staff, but I didn’t get a thank you after I left to 30% tip! Everyone From Mineola loves Davenport, but everybody From Mineola knows it’s less eye appealing than any other eating venue in town.

    Davenport Press is a restaurant that feels like” home “for our family. We have been have dinners there for so many years. My aunt has since passed and now my dad will order the Davenport Pork in her honor. It was her favorite dish. I highly recommend you stop by for a delicious lunch or dinner.

    The Davenport Press is our go to restaurant. We are never disappointed. Of course I always bring something home, which is great! The wait staff are always friendly. They never refer to us as "guys" which is a bug-a-boo with me. From appetizers to dessert, everything is always delicious!!
