Wonderful, wonderful!!! Our server was attentive and so friendly. We were there the night restaurants had to close outdoor dining for three weeks. Just broke our hearts. The food was delicious and our server brought me a birthday desert. As soon as they reopen, we are going back. What a great find with perfectly spaced tables outside in several areas. We sat near the parking lot which was quiet vs sitting closer to Ventura Blvd.

Going to Davenport's is a real treat. Gregarious service by all wait staff, congenial owner, good food. Plus no corkage fee on your first bottle of wine. We do many birthday celebrations at Davenport's. Recommend it to all my friends. Thanks much

Food was very tasty but cold. Waiter mixed up order twice but was very nice and anxious to please. Hate the stairs and not good place for handicapped people. Food is always great but hate cold soup and meat and potatoes.

Took my gal here for her B Day Dinner. For appetizers we ordered oysters on the half shell & Signature Lobster Bites which was delish. I forgot to add Mac & Cheese for my gal. For the main coarse my gal ordered BBQ baby back ribs which was on the dry side & I ordered the Tuscan Seafood Linguini which was excellent! The desert was bomb! Nice note: didn’t charge a corkage Fee for Champaign.

In the midst of this pandemic, eating outside at Davenport’s takes you back to when times were different. The food is still delicious, the atmosphere is lovely, the service top notch. We feel so lucky to have this gastronomic gem in our neighborhood. A big shout out to Nigel, Carl, and staff.

We love Davenports. However, this was the first time my meal was less than exceptional. Also, the noise level was way too loud to be able to hear others at our table. This was the first time our experience was less than exceptional.

Neighborhood gem. Always attentive service and exceptional food and drinks. Patio is the perfect date night especially while indoor dining is still not permitted. A very well run establishment.

Love this restaurant ... service, food, ambiance. We were seated close to Ventura Blvd and it was a bit loud; not Davenports issue but the crazy drivers that evening.

Davenport's was a delight. The outside area is beautiful and set up safely for Covid. The service was perfect. Our server Lisa was warm, sweet and on top of everything. The dinner was delicious with large portions. Can't wait to go back.

The Vegan Burger was GREAT!
The Burrata/ Beet salad was not. Had no flavor and was dry.
The artichoke was rock hard and under cooked.
For the prices they charge, the food better be fantastic-all of it!
