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.

Bad service bad food no atmosphere! Hot and cold appetizers came out all at the same time so we ate lukewarm soup crab cakes and mussels! House salad basically ripped up iceberg lettuce and unappetizing vegetables, crab cakes were very dry and over fried seafood bisque had pieces of shrimp and imitation crab meat?! and mussels were just okay at best. Husbands “special “ fish was heavily breaded and pan fried so he could not tell what fish it was, my steak fillet was really bad cut of meat ,dry unseasoned and overdone the mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes from the box! My sons linguine with shrimp “scampi “ was almost inedible ; shrimp were not fresh and had a taste of chlorine ? just terrible and he complained about stomach discomfort that same night! I made a mistake of not speaking to the manager about the whole experience but we just wanted to get out of there ASAP

Food was excellent and portions were large. It took way too long for our waitress to ask if we wanted coffee or dessert and by that time we just wanted to go. Then it took another 15 minutes for the check to come once we asked for it. But overall we enjoyed dinner and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

We went for lunch on Saturday. There were not that many people there. The staff was attentive and cordial. The food was delicious and the drinks were well made. My husband who used to work in restaurants said that if the drinks are well made, then you know the restaurant will deliver high quality on everything. This was certainly true for us.

Celebrated with friends from out of state and they absolutely loved this restaurant. Beautiful inside and was welcomed as soon as we arrived. Arrived a tad early but were seated with no delay. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp with mashed potatoes and veg and it was delicious. My husband ordered the the loin of pork and he was thrilled that he could get it spicey as he loves this type of food. Everyone else was very pleased with their menu selection. Would highly recommend this restaurant!
