Typically a good place but service has declined. Good help is tough to find these days.

My favorite restaurant in the area. The owner (Carl) is always so personable & friendly. He really knows how to welcome & treat his guests. Service is top notch. The food is always on point. I was bummed they got rid of my favorite dish - the Southwestern Skirt Steak but they replaced it with a Chimichurri Skirt Steak which was equally as delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Phenomenal dining experience with excellent seafood comparable to what my wife and I have enjoyed on our trips up the coast.

Only negative was a table for two was kind of small (especially since we indulged in a few appetizers).

My girlfriend and I went there for our valentines dinner. The food and the drinks were excellent. Our appetizers and food came out fast. The service was outstanding our waitress kept checking in on us if we were ok and how our drinks were. Would definitely recommend this my girlfriend and I will definitely keep going back

First time going after hearing very good reviews from friends. It was 2 adults and 2 kids. Great menu and drinks. They have kids options not listed so just ask for them. Dinner specials had oysters plus prime rib. Def. try their lobster bites. Wow. Not too pricy either. Was very busy which is to be expected on Sat. night so make reservation. Will go back again.

We had a valentines luncheon on the 14th and everything was perfect. Our waiter Sal was very nice and helpful on making our choices. Our table was outside and very comfortable. We will definitely return for another meal. Thanks. Carol

Great service in an upscale yet comfortable space. Food was good and we enjoyed our dinner but nothing extraordinary, especially for the price. Nice night out in the neighborhood.

Our Valentine’s dinner, my wife and me, and we really enjoyed our first visit here. Delicious food and attentive staff members. Carl the owner stopped by and made sure we were satisfied. Great ambience and really tasty food. Worth the slightly higher $ for the meal and the environment. Really the only place like it in the west valley area.

I regret that I cannot recommend Davenport's. I sense lots of good intentions, and the physical space and the service are lovely. I know for a fact that the owner and the management envision great dining for this restaurant -- and really care about achieving it. But -- we have been three times; we are experienced and discriminating diners; and the simple fact is that the food is just not prepared very well. A higher standard needs to be applied in the kitchen. I hope that happens, because this restaurant has all the right qualities - absent only the most important one - exceptional culinary skill.

The restaurant is nice and they have a good reputation but I was a little disappointed with the food. First thing was they were out of what I ordered. My second choice really wasn’t what I wanted. Not sure how you run out of one of the mainstays on your menu. Our service however was excellent. Our waitress was upbeat and attentive and was wonderful, she made a disappointing night better. Everyone else else enjoyed their dinner but nothing stood out. Overall I just wasn’t impressed. Maybe next time will be better.

Good food and service. I would go more often for lunch if they had some specials like half a sandwich and soup or salad. A little pricey for everyday otherwise a good place to go to

Great family owned restaurant . I took my parents here for their wedding anniversary. Everything we ordered was perfect I would highly recommend the pork chop, rib eye, and salmon. Everything was cooked to perfection. I plan to return very soon.

I have been to Davenports several times in the past. I've been a bit disturbed by the attitude of the receptionist, but I didn't complain. However, when my guests arrived before us, they were told there was only one table available unless we wanted to eat outside. They even called me to tell me that the receptionist told them that I should have requested requested a specific area when I had made the reservation. Not very diplomatic. In other words, I find the staff too snooty for their own good. The booth they gave us was extremely uncomfortable. I was forced to sit in a booth and later a chair where my feet did not touch the ground nor the step on the chair. I'm 5'4". That's not that short. The vegetables were greasy that was served with the Branzino, which was a daily special. I have to say, the waiter was very attentive. Too bad the chef wasn't.

I invited my sister-in-law and brother-in-law for dinner to celebrate my brother-in-law's 90th Birthday.
The dinner was excellent, with many choices.
Since I notified the restaurant that it was a Birthday celebration, they surprised us with an ice cream sundae in a huge snifter.
They enjoyed the evening, and the ambiance added to the occasion.

Davenport's is a fine, local restaurant, with good food and pretty good service. The prices are competitive with the neighborhood, the service is good. Additional attention would have been welcomed, but overall, it was very good. We return time and again because of the quality of the food and that the restaurant recognizes its reservations.
