We went to Davios to celebrate my daughter’s birthday which I indicated in our reservation. For my husband’s birthday, our server wished him happy birthday upon arrival, and brought out a special desert plate with a candle and happy birthday written in the plate- nothing like that for our daughter last night. The appetizers were great. However, my husband ordered his filet medium rare and it arrived medium well. He also ordered blue cheese mashed potatoes and received regular. Kind of disappointing.

The food was incredible! Our waitress was very friendly, professional and helpful. Our new favorite Dinner Date-Nite spot. The braised short ribs are out of this world!

We hadn’t been out to eat in almost 2 years due to the pandemic. We were cautiously optimistic that we could go to Davios and be safe. The birthday celebration was more than we hoped for. Safety precautions were in place. The food was delicious. And we were lucky to have Ian as our server. He provided top notch service and deserves to be acknowledged and rewarded. Looking for a return visit…soon.

From the martini, exactly how I asked for it, to the crab cake appetizer, burger(Yum), the scallops with sweet corn, the house Pinot Noir, and excellent servers, I say this was a wonderful dinner! I’ve been to the other locations: Boston, Chestnut Hill, marketplace Lynnfield and this was my favorite! Will be back soon.

Great food and ambiance. The vents were on high (I’m assuming due to Covid), so if you don’t like being cold ask to not be seated under one. I was seated directly under a vent and it took away from my dining experience. Staff was very friendly.

My wife and I wanted to have a memorable New Year's Eve celebration with family and friends since this was our first new years eve as a married couple. I made reservations at Davio's in Braintree for 6 people at 7PM on 12/31. I had previously dined there and had a good time. We arrived on time as a group only to be told that the table would be ready "soon." This is after I had confirmed the reservation when I was called by the restaurant days before with date, time and party size. We hovered at a crowded bar and finally after returning to the hostess stand three times to check on the reservation status we were ultimately brought to the table after 7:30PM. This was the first in a series of disappointments. Next, the table was set for only 5 people. It took another few minutes to get a place setting and chair for my mother in law. I was pleasantly surprised that the table was in a quiet area, but again disappointed that it was in a corner by the divider of a private room which had several open tables, all while parties continued to wait beyond their reservation times. Once seated a waiter greeted us with water and pop overs. We then waited until a little after 8PM before the waiter returned to place an order for drinks and appetizers. I placed an order for a bottle of wine for the table. When we were served our appetizers, we placed our orders for the main course. My wife ordered a salad with dressing on the side. As the food finally came, my wife's salad was mixed with the dressing. We never saw anyone again to check in on any of our orders until after they delivered the corrected salad with dressing on the side. We finally ordered dessert and a bottle of Dom Perignon ( which the waiter was not sure if it was in stock ). Again the dessert and champagne was delivered and we were ghosted by the waiter. The experience was all in all disappointing for this caliber of restaurant, mediocre customer service and attention to detail in a time when restaurants are at risk.

They couldn’t find my reservation at first.
Waiter took our wine glasses without asking if we were going to use them. The steak was delicious but the sides were only warm when they brought them out.
Had to pass things to server. Was asked if we were all set after he served food because he had a dinner meeting to go to for a bit before the dinner rush came in.
It was a weird night.

Christmas Eve. Food was special. My husband had 7 fishes and enjoyed it. I had veal tenderloin and it was scrumptious. Davio’s never disappoints.

However, I was surprised, that with the Omercon surge, our waiter did not wear a mask. He appeared to be the only one among the staff who wasn’t wearing a mask. Your website indicated that your staff would be masked…it was disconcerting. I almost asked for a different server but my husband dissuaded me,

Except for that issue, the experience was great

I was a little disappointed. The service was great. The steak (filet) was good quality, It was cooked perfectly. The flavor was a little bland. We each had bernaise sauce to enhance the meat but it was a little too lemony. Thecreamy potatoes were just okay. The green beans were good bu a little cold when served. The shrimp were good but a little overcooked. The drinks were good. The lava cake was great. Overall, my wife said she would give it a 4 out of 5. I would give it slightly less. We were placed near the entry so it was a bit noisy at times.

We visited for a business lunch and as a vegan with a dairy allergy the kitchen was very accommodating. It was nice that they were able to cater to me and we could enjoy as a team while the others funny enough didn't even get steak! Seafood was enjoyed all around and the famous risotto did not disappoint. We will be back!

We’ve been eating at Davio’s since it was on Newbury Street. We loved it there, on Arlington St and in Chestnut Hill. This was the absolute worst experience we’ve had at a Davio’s. The service was well intentioned but awful. It appeared that they had only two wait-staff for the entire (ugly cavernous space). It took almost 60 minutes for dinner to arrive and then it came without the vegetable sides due to poor communications between the waitress and the food delivery crew. Then it took 10 minutes just to get the waitresses attention. When the sides did arrive (after we had finished our entrees, which were “fine”), the spinach was good. but the mushrooms were inedible. This place is an embarrassment to the Davio’s name!

Great food! Great service! A little too pricey for some of their portions. Try the spaghetti, lobster with citrus. Ask the waiter/waitress for some more grated cheese. Amazingly cooked. Viewable kitchen adds to the experience.
