The food was good, but not spectacular. The chimichurri steak was very good, but the potatoes that came with it were cold and seemingly old. But, the sushi appetizer was very good and so was the brownie dessert.

Modifying my review after further thought. I've been to Davenport's many times. The food and service has always been terrific. This past Tuesday it was disappointing...the service was really 'off.' But here's the thing: The owner called to discuss the issues and personally apologize. He REALLY cared that we had a bad experience. He explained some of the staffing issues that he's having since the pandemic---many employees had to find other work while they were closed. (I know he's in good company there---hearing that all over the place.) They have to best patio and outdoor seating of ANY restaurant in town. I know he's really trying...and I'm sure I'll give him another try after our conversation. But last Tuesday, things weren't what I expected. And until I have another/better experience, I guess I wouldn't gush to a friend that they should go there.

we liked the food much better prior to the pandemic. The bread did not taste as good as before, no variety. The shrimp cocktail that we had were large shrimp but tasteless. your restaurant was the first one that we went to since the pandemic started last march. But not to worry we will be back again soon....

Patio dining felt safe & comfortable with outdoor heater & fabulous jazz playing in the background. Fettuccine seafood was to die for. Grilled steak salad had a strange dressing & meat was a little tough, but bed of charred lettuce made it interesting. To end the meal we had a delicious Lemon coconut cake that tasted homemade!! Overall, glad to see so many customers, and hope this continues so this restaurant stays successful in the neighborhood!!

The patio is perfect for outdoor dining. Staff is attentive and friendly Food is prepared and plated nicely. The mussles and clams were delish, the fried oysters were small and I would have liked a different sauce, but they were ok. Nice evening and I always go back there

My vendor was unable to meet after all so I ended up dining solo. Garrett, the bar manager, was attentive and chatted with me as time allowed him. He recommended the new shortrib with mushroom risotto which I ordered and ate every last bite. It paired perfectly with the Falcone Syrah. A steal at $60 bottle. Always helpful and friendly staff along with upscale hearty and delicious food. They can also make a mean old fashion as well as other craft cocktails. Perfect for any occasion!
