Portions are very large, I would have ordered less had I known. Good food. Very quaint decor in a historic building, and out of the hurry of Franklin/Mineola Blvds. Better ambience and food than the St. J we normally go to for staff lunches. I wish the railroad would finish their construction, because it is hard to get to Davenport from the north side of the tracks now that Main Street is blocked. LOL, I do know the restaurant doesn't control the LIRR....

I have been frequenting Davenport for years. It is consistently a favorite place to go. The food is both well prepared and plentiful; the staff pleasant and helpful. We always enjoy our dinners at Davenport Press.

Davenport never disappoints. The best food, great selection with excellent and attentive service. The Tomahawk ribeye is great for dinner and lunch the next day! Was only able to eat half.

Davenport is a hidden gem on Long Island! A great restaurant that has been around for a while. Hidden next to the Mineola train. Lino is always a welcome face as you arrive. The service team is special as well. Shout out to Carlos. Always delicious food and great for a special occasion or a dinner with family! My kids loved it! Especially the dessert! Thanks Davenport

There were six of us. Two ordered the chicken parmigiana, one ordered shrimp scampi, one ordered osso bucco, one ordered veal mediteranean and I ordered pistachio crusted trout. Everyone was extremely pleased with their choices. We finished the meal off with a slice of cheesecake and an order of chocolate mousse and some excellent coffee and espressos.

The waiter was handling the entire room but he did it really well. An excellent dinner.

We were seated at a round table that was perfect for our group, and the noise level could not have been better. We were able to catch up after a long time without worrying about music. The wait staff was very attentive and everyone in my party enjoyed their food. I highly recommend the pistachio crusted trout, the serving was huge.Everyone said that their food was exceptionally tasty - great experience.

Service was excellent! The food was good except a little to heavy on Cesar salad. Next time I’ll know to ask light on dressing. Will probably be back after the RR construction in the area

Went for Father's Day lunch, food was delicious (the pork osso bucco was my pick and to die for, but everyone's entrees were delicious), servers and service were both excellent. I happened to spot a bottle of Pimm's behind the bar, and when the bartender didn't know how to make what I asked for, he came out to ask me for guidance -- really thoughtful and the drink was delicious. Also no one minded my silly girl running around inside and outside, just very sweet about it. We all very much enjoyed.

The service was excellent. The restaurant is old-fashioned, from the taxidermy on the walls to the menu. Some people like that old school feel but it was a bit stuffy for us.

Davenport Press was excellent. This was our first visit and it was for my son’s birthday. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. There were 8 of us including two young children. We were not rushed and our waiter was very helpful both in explaining the various dishes and dealing with the young children. We all had a great time and plan to visit again.

Food was good, except onion soup had no flavor. It looked like a big bowl, but the inside of the bowl was slanted in and made the inside a little smaller than it looked. Mashed potatoes ??? Seemed very loose, out of a Package?? Portions good, vegetables were a bit overloaded. Otherwise, a very nice place to eat.
