Great attentive waiter, great food!
We were seated immediately. The waitstaff couldn't have been more accommodating. They let us sit there as long as we wanted. Glad we decided to go there.
Bartender Archie is THE MAN! Awesome drinks, great conversation!
The whole experience was delightful, wait staff were attentive and friendly.
The food and service was fantastic! Portia was one of the best servers that we’ve ever had!
The reception was great. Food was excellent but the best part was the server Portia who was absolutely amazing, polite, accommodating and just an overall gem. I have been dinning here for many years and this was the best server ever.
My friend and I met almost 50 years after our high school graduation and we’re looking forward to a really good meal. The warm spinach salad was excellent and the Russian River Sauvignon Blanc was very good. Down hill from there . The Eggplant was over sauced, and had little flavor. My friend had the scallops and it was far too salty. The combination of high price and low quality preparation is a shame. This is the first time I have been to Daviosi in Chestnut Hill and the last. The wait staff and hostess was terrific. With better food preparation it could have been an excellent experience -it was just not good food
And definitely not a good value.
Great local place with good food…nice bar…love the bar menu..friendly staff and during week available without reservation. Great place for after the movie!
Party of 5
We were given the private room
Service and food was amazing!
Great service and food. Highly recommend
Amazing dinner—best I’ve had from start to finish for a long time. Service was excellent and attentive as well. Our new favorite restaurant!!
All of our servers were incredible! Food was great!
Came here for a Birthday Dinner for my boyfriend and thanks to OpenTable we were greeted by every staff saying Happy Birthdayyy to my boyfriend. It really made the experience and made him feel special so thank you OpenTable! For giving us the option to choose what we are celebrating
Everything was terrific except the wine and the temperature.
The first wine we chose was unavailable. The second wine we we chose was unavailable but we were poured a bottle that was three years younger, without asking if we wanted that (we didn’t notice on the label at first, and only after the waiter left). We weren’t thrilled with feeling like we now stuck with it. We should have been asked before it was opened and poured.
The temp was fine until the middle of the meal at around 8:30-ish, when AC poured down from above, and heat cranked out from the wall below the table at the same time. It was not comfortable.
Was a very pleasant experience. Lunch with a friend, leisurely, delicious in elegant surroundings. We both thoroughly enjoyed our choices of food Andy wine.
The staff was courteous and knowledgeable. The food was very well prepared and the cocktails were fantastic!
We have enjoyed brunch now several times at Davio’s in Chestnut Hill. I have to say that in addition to very good food, the service provided to us by one, Porsche was nothing short of exceptional. She is undoubtedly one of the most upbeat and charming people in the business that we have had the pleasure to be served by. If you want to be not only treated well but remembered by your favorite foods, Porsche will deliver that to you on a silver platter. In addition, I want to also note that Jeff, the restaurant’s host is equally as charming and professional. Jeff makes sure that we are not only comfortably placed, but also served with some of our favorites. These two people combined with good food, make coming back a most happy experience.
Slow service. My steak was severely over cooked, server did not check on us so I did not get it corrected for a very long time. The refire also took a long time with minimal guests in the dining room. I ended up eating after my party had completed theirs. No apology. Had to wave down server to order more drinks. Both rounds. Usually we go to Capital but wanted to try this for a change. Will definitely continue to just go to Capital….
My wife’s birthday, service and food were excellent we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Was for my husband’s birthday. My daughter also attended. We’ve been several times before but this time our waiter was very disappointing. He took quite a while to come over and when he finally did he didn’t go over any specials or even take our drink order. If I didn’t speak up he would have breezed right over that. I don’t know if they were short staffed but service was very slow and he just didn’t seem like I wanted to do his job. Disappointing for a $300+ bill. You expect great food and service.
Heather our server was great very upbeat.
Food was awesome.
Yearly my friends and I gather at Davio's in downtown Boston and each year we love it even more. This year we had to change our location to Chestnut Hill and we were left feeling very disappointed. When asked if there were specials we were promptly told NO Specials. The Waitress did not know the menu or what was available to my friend , who needed to order off of their Gluten Free menu. Instead, the waitress came over with three dry pieces of Pasta to let her know this is all Davio's could offer. In addition to feeling rushed, the staff also broke a martini glass on our table. We understand accidents happen, but this location is not how I would want to represent the company as a whole. Needless to say we will be having a Holiday Dinner make over at the downtown location.
Great food excellent service when dining recently with friends.
It was clear that the restaurant was short staffed so service was slower than usual. Also, mistakes in 2 orders meant food had to be redone.
Davio's cocktails and food were really great.
The service was efficient and the servers were very nice- maybe a bit over the top. The prices are very high. So be prepared. We had a lovely time. Popovers were a huge hit as was the panna cotta dessert.
Our waitress was very nice, but we barely saw her. When we did see her she was apologizing for the wait and then she would disappear for a while. It would take about 20 minutes to get a new drink or to get her attention again. I do not blame her, as she seemed very busy. It was just not worth the cost of the dinner that night.
Birthday and it was perfect
We were very disappointed with our experience yesterday. This is one of two of our favorite restaurants, but it failed us at our latest dining experience at the Chestnut Hill location.
We waited a while for our drinks, appetizers, main course (which was flavorless) and the wrong check was brought to us. There were two large parties going on and all the attention went to them. It was clear that they were short staffed, and should have closed down for the private parties.
The manager “took care” of our bill for the smoked chicken penne, which I brought home and added flavor.
Call ahead to see if it’s busy.
Second time here. Once before for dinner, this time for brunch. Food was good. Service good. Nice atmosphere. Nothing outstanding but definitely decent. Noise level much better this time around because it wasn’t crowded at all.
Went to celebrate my sisters birthday. They won’t let you bring a cake to cut but they did let us sing happy birthday which made the experience so much better. Food was good, portions were plenty and our server was friendly and professional. Would recommend this restaurant. Just wish they had nicer cocktail options.
It was fabulous, our server was outstanding. Food delicious.
Overall Meh. Salmon was dry. Sauce on steak rolls was weird. Didn’t love it.
Very nice for a date night! Delicious steak and pasta, excellent service.
Food was delicious and it was nice atmosphere.
Great service as always
The ambiance was quiet which is a wonderful treat in today';'s restaurants. We could easily hear each other speak. The food was excellent and there were many choices so everyone in our party of 4 could find a meal to enjoy,
Food excellent. Service excellent. Steak knife tore the filet rather than cutting it,
Friends for our lunch we do every few months. Food and service were excellent.
