The food was great! Our waiter, Brandon was excellent! Very knowledgeable of the menu and desserts. He took the time to find out who the high school graduate was and congratulated her in her accomplishment. He even decorated her dessert plate with a candle and wrote Congratulations on it.

The best seafood tower - fish and shellfish are fresh and delicious but the condiments are what seal the deal. The fresh horseradish, mignonette, mustard sauce and cocktail sauce are wonderful.

Excellent service by our server "Ian"; fast, served meal with style and efficiency. Atmosphere relaxing; wish there was pianist or live music instead of musak. Kitchen looked clean and chefs looked calm and contained while still being quick to get meals out. A well-oiled machine and obviously, good staff training! Anne DiSanto, The History Room, Easton

I love this restaurant! Our server Rose went above and beyond. Absolutely amazing service. My husband is vegan and Rose was very informative on what he can order. She also recommended some delicious desserts. Everyone there is so professional and accommodating. My husband ordered the Spaghettini, organic mushrooms and asparagus. I ordered the filet with a side of the fettuccine in the basil pesto sauce. OMG. So delicious and they use fresh, quality ingredients. Also, everything was served at appropriate times. I don't like when my entree comes out when I'm still eating my appetizer. We really enjoyed being there, the atmosphere is lovely. Also, Rose is an incredible server and I would go back just to see her again!

Our experience was disappointing as we’ve enjoyed this location in the past. The restaurant was not full but the service was extremely slow. Not sure the reason (probably a combination of waiter, bar staff, and cooks). We had five adults and were there for more than 2 1/2 hrs. We did not get drinks for probably 45 mins. One of the appetizers didn’t come out (they finally brought it and comp’d us). One of the entrees was plated incorrectly (missed the “Oscar style”). The food was very good and it did not appear that the plates sat under heat lamps i.e., was served as it was ready. However, overall not worth the cost. I don’t think staff shortages could be to blame because there were plenty of staff visible and as mentioned the restaurant was not close to full.

Food was very good. Thank heavens for support staff. But our waiter got lost we told him we wanted more wine with dinner never came back. Until it was time to give us a check. He made errors on that also. Hopefully it was just our waiter.

The prime steaks are terrific and if you like chicken livers, I’d say they have the best around. And it’s a great app. Service was great as usual..

We had a wonderful celebratory meal with friends that we hadn't seen since Covid. Our waitress Rose was very helpful and attentive. The food was delicious and the menu so extensive that we had a hard time deciding which of the wonderful entrees to eat! WE always enjoy this restaurant.

Davios is always a great option for food. They had a decent whisk(e)y list as well. Reasonable prices for even the rarer bourbons. I love the steak options which I didn’t go for for on this occasion, but I’d give 4.5 for food overall. Fantastic service too.

Loved this location even more than the Chestnut Hill local. We were looking for a convenient place to enjoy a special Sunday dinner after shopping and this was perfect. All the staff we dealt with were welcoming, warm, and helpful. A high end menu in a place with a relaxed attitude, the food was perfect and we love the Davios menu because you can get so much more than just the steak house classics: lots of apps and entrees influenced by Italian cuisine. The octopus with the just right amount of char on; a light, tender homemade pasta agnolotti filled with a very fresh creamy ricotta that had a hint of lemon (many of the pastas come in half portions, if you've got a smaller appetite), steaks in all sizes - our Flat Iron was done just as we ordered, and came with truffle fries that actually had the mushroomy perfume of truffle (unlike some restaurants) and with sauteed broccalini. Portions were generous enough that we brought some home. The chocolate lava cake was served with the gooey warm center, as it should be, but so often at other places, is not. The food is not cutting edge trend, but is contemporary and never disappoints. Terrific wine list with a satisfying amount of by the glass and half bottles, and a helpful manager, who pointed us in the right direction on our choice. Applause for the entire staff in Braintree!

Always a weekend experience to go out to Davio’s excellent staff all around. If you're looking for a typical standard restaurant experience, this is not your restaurant of choice. Suppose you are looking to live your best life and level up a little Davio’s has it right with service from when you enter the doors to your exit the quality food and beverage choices. I enjoy my weekly visit here is fantastic, consistently top-notch from everyone.

Dinner was great - we sat at the bar - and our bartender was so nice. Made an amazing martini with blue cheese stuffed olives - perfect!
We got a couple of apps to share - and their eggplant in the cast iron pan was not on menu. - and I asked about it - and luckily it was the special that evening.

Davio's is a sure thing - always top notch service, and always amazing food. I am not a big fan of going to malls/plaza/shopping center restaurants - but Davio's makes it great!

Everything about our visit to Davio's in Braintree was both warm and magical from the inviting staff who go above and beyond the call of duty to the extensive array-of superb dishes.
The delicious espresso martini paired with a warm seafood platter began our journey followed by Sword fish complemented by a side of corn.
So bravo to all those who make it happen the staff and even the very special hosts who add a personal touch to the experience to those who have not yet experience Davios I say to them a trip to Davio's Braintree is a delightful must. Bob of Quincy.
