Steakhouse
In 1985, at the young and ambitious age of 24, Chef/Restaurateur Steve DiFillippo purchased a locally-owned family restaurant called Davio’s, on Newbury Street in Boston’s trendy Back Bay neighborhood. As Boston’s culinary tastes evolved, DiFillippo transformed the location into a dining destination for locals and visitors alike. He moved the restaurant to Arlington Street in Boston's Back Bay and retooled the menu, the space and the wine list. The new Davio’s soon garnered rave reviews and has been a staple in the Boston restaurant scene ever since.
Everything at Davio’s is handmade using only the finest ingredients, prepared fresh daily. We serve Brandt Beef Steaks, simple-yet-unique pasta creations, the freshest seafood as well as our classic dishes. We have mirrored our philosophy in the kitchen with our expert and attentive staff in the dining room, seeing to our guest’s every need & taking pride in their enjoyment of their meal. At Davio's, it's all about the guest.

Where do I start? Most importantly was the food and it wasn’t good, didn’t taste good except for the calamari, that was good. Our server had a huge attitude, I was looking for bottles of wines and he insisted that I choose the wines with the higher price!! Please stop it!! I’m not going to pay $400 for a bottle for just a dinner with a friend! Then I decided I’m not going to get a bottle at all, so asked for a glass of Cabernet and mentioned the name of the it, he then freaking made it look like I chose the other more expensive glass, no I’m not paying $25 for a glass, I’m happy with what I chose! I hate when they do that!! I’m familiar with wine and have dined a lot so I know when these tricks occur.

Wish the food was good though! Big disappointment

Avoid the lobster risotto— mine was overlooked and rubbery lobster. Very nice place, I just should have ordered something else. Dining partner enjoyed steak, but nothing special.

Some food was good and some wasn't. Doesn't have the style like Morton's
or Flemings does. Service was very attentive. Experience was pleasant
and the noise level was okay because the place was half empty.

Overall great experience. Went with a group for a business dinner. Nice ambiance, medium level noise - we were able to hear each other comfortably. Great service, extensive menu for any dietary preference. All courses were beautifully presented and delicious. We had a variety of foods including octopus, oysters, chicken, and scallops. Everything tasted very good and cooked just right. And portion sizes were good. It was difficult to choose desserts because all options presented looked really good. Settled on Cream Brulee and Tiramisu and were not disappointed. We had a bottle of Zinfandel wine. Though expensive, it was very good and well balanced wine that everyone enjoyed.

I have dined at davios in Philadelphia many times and it was always a favorite. I have been to lunch twice at KOP and enjoyed so when I was planning a girls night I suggested davios KOP. I was very disappointed in the food. One of the four had an ok veal chop but the other three dishes were very disappointing. My pasta dish (which I added shrimp to) had no flavor. My sister’s risotta was dry and my nieces gnocchi was awful. She didn’t even eat it after first bite. Service and ambience were awesome but reluctant to return.

Visited Davio's for the first time on 3/31/19 for lunch. The atmosphere and the service were outstanding. My wife and I both raved about the food and the presentation. You can easily see that Davio's takes great pride in their restaurant. We have already recommended Davio's to our friends and family and we will definitely return.

We were not impressed with the appetizers. Spring rolls left a little to be desired and the crabcake on the menu said it would be jumbo lump and it was like a small burger size and not flavorful. The steak was amazing and so was the warm goat cheese spinach salad. The sides did not come out with the steaks and had to wait a while . Was a little disappointing. Slow service.

Although I rarely write reviews for restaurants, my disappointment in our dining experience at Davio's made me reconsider. While we had no issues with the ambiance and food that was served, I was less than impressed with the service and accommodations for those with food allergies at the restaurant. Our son has a dairy allergy, and while it has never cause an issue at any other restaurant we have dined at, this was not the case at Davio's. When served bread with cheese at the start of the meal, we explained our situation and asked if there was alternate bread for our son. We were abruptly told, "No," without any other options being given. We've never been to a restaurant that did not have some type of alternative bread option. When choosing appetizers, the only non-dairy option was calamari which we were sure our teenagers wouldn't like. Deciding to skip the appetizers and opt solely for the main course, our waiter pressured us to order an appetizer saying that we were going to be hungry since it would take the food a long time to come out, and that we should get the calamari. We declined the appetizer and were then ignored until the main course came out. Our waiter never came back to check on us or refill our drinks.
What we thought would be a nice dinner out for our daughter's 16th birthday, ended up being a disappointment. It was definitely not the dining experience we had hoped for, especially considering what we paid for the meal.

My first time at the KOP location. I have been to the Center City Philadelphia location many times. I prefer the Center City location to the KOP location. Although the food quality was similar, the service at the Center City Philadelphia location is much more professional and the restaurant is not as loud. That said, the food is terrific at both locations.

The overall experience was very good. It was my first visit, hosting a lunch with close friends and nobody had a particular complaint. Our orders ranged from a brunch item to filet, dessert and bar drinks and everything was prepared correctly and as expected. It was nice to see the bartender wasn't shy about a longer pour than many places. I must also say our server (Anne C.) was absolutely fantastic! The only reason I didn't go "5 stars" is that I reserve that for when I'm completely blown away. Davio's was definitely a positive experience, and I won't hesitate to go back.

We made reservation but when we got there, we had to wait to be seated. The waiter was nice but the waiting time was long....at least they give bread and butter which was delish. The food was good and the waiter was very informative for a newby like myself. I hope to go back but at a different time. And also the location is fantastic.

I love Davio's it is always a treat. However, this week was not quite as perfect as usual. It was loud and very crowded which I am sure had a lot to do with it. I love leisurely service but this was a bit too slow and disjointed but I am owing it to a very busy Tuesday night.

Loved Davio's until this bad experience. Now I'm not so sure. We were a party of two - my wife and I - celebrating our birthdays, which are one day apart.
- The server was judgmental and copped an attitude
- We were seated next to a large group of about eight, so they got all the attention
- We had steak but were not offered the pepper grinder, which tables around us were
- Our birthdays were not acknowledged at the table, yet the hostess did when we arrived
