Service is always exceptional! Good food choices especially appetizers. Prices slightly high but to be expected with this level of service. Wish it wasn’t quite so noisy

We dined at Davio's on a quiet Weds night. Though our server only had us (a party of two) and another party of 4 - the service was completely absent from drinks to dessert. Only at collecting the check did he seem to be in a rush - grabbing it out from beneath my arm at 845pm. The atmosphere, the food and the details we are used to are of course still there, but I can not imagine what the service would be like on a busy Saturday. Even the food runners were rolling their eyes at the fact that plates were not put out for apps, steak knifes not put out, etc. I made eye contact many times with our waiter only to be ignored. To bad as he could have made more money off us if he cared to refills drinks, offer coffee or dessert to go vs rush us out.

I have always enjoyed my meals at Davios, great quality , portions are not too big. I was a little disappointed in the service this time our waiter seemed to have too many tables and we had to wait for him on some items we asked for. This was not a criticism of him he was very friendly and knew his job.

Restaurant can be loud, so table location can be important if you want to hear each other. Service was outstanding and they recognized our anniversaries by providing each couple with a complementary dessert, nice touch. Although everyone liked their entrees, the food was very salty, not what we experienced from past visits. Overall, we walked away a little disappointed versus prior experiences.

The scallops were delicious. My dining friend is a celiac, and they brought her gluten free rolls that she
loved. The waitress even gave her some to bring home! The ambient noise is very loud -- the only drawback to an excellent meal.

Friendly and accomodating hostess and waiters. Prompt and polite service. Excellent popovers served before meal. Very good food. Not a very good pour of wine. I don't like restaurants that give you what apoears to be a 6 ounce pour of wine for $12 to $15. That is the one way Davios could improve. I frequent the restaurant often and always feel chested by the small glass of wine!

Catherine was an outstanding and personable server. She expertly guided us on the attributes of the three kinds of grappa and was very attentive in every way. The three course luncheon specials of rigatoni and sausage and roast chicken with risotto were both outstanding. We loved the way the caprese salad was diced and served in a bowl. We could easily get every bit of the pesto and the balsamic vinegar. The lemon Napoleon with fresh raspberries was divine.

I had been to Davio’s before but only for drinks. I brought my mom for Mother’s Day, and from the minute we walked in, we felt welcome. We sat at EXACTLY our reservation time, and were greeted at our table within a minute. Our server, Reese, was exceptional. He was not only courteous and informative, but introduced himself and also asked for our names and shook our hands. He wished my Mom a Happy Mother’s Day both at the beginning and the end of dinner. The mango mimosas and spring roll appetizer sampler were both amazing. My mother got the rack of lamb special and said it was the best she’s ever had. I got the fusilli dish from the regular menu and it was no problem at all to substitute chicken for shrimp. At the end of our meal we opted for martinis instead of dessert. Eric, the bartender, made delicious pistachio and chocolate martinis for us. Eric was also very welcoming and courteous, as he greeted us while we were waiting near the bar for our dinner table. When we were ready to pay, we were brought complimentary cookies despite the fact that we didn’t order dessert. All in all, GREAT hosts, waitstaff, bartenders, food, and cocktails.

Went on Mothers Day, hoping for the regular brunch. They were only offering a few of the Brunch menu so I had to pick something from this limited selection. Our waitress was delightful and attentive. As much as I would like to at least give the dinner menu a try, the prices are beyond our usual budget.

Good food but horrible service! The gentlemen clearing the tables, we had to ask 3X to get us things bc our waitress was no where!!! We were offered a drink when we sat down and not any other time. This is my second time at Davio’s with terrible service, we won’t be back. After telling my experience to friends they informed me they also have had bad service. It’s a shame bc the food was excellent.

We were super happy with our lunch/brunch at Davio's Lynnfield. It was my mom's 86th birthday and they could not have been nicer. She was thrilled with her 'build your own" Bloody Mary, and said her Asparagus Frittata was out of this world. I had the Chicken BLT which was awesome, and even though we were too full to have dessert, they still brought a little tray of cookies with a lit candle and happy birthday written in chocolate! The little extra touches are everywhere! We have been to Davio's several times and will continue to frequent - it's so so satisfying on so many levels.

While we enjoyed out dinner at Davio's we have one suggestion for management: It was very nice that a few of the wait staff congratulated us on our anniversary, but when the bill was given to us togeter with two tiny chocolate covered strawberries on a plate with wishes written in chocolate, it was almost insulting! If you're going to do something, do it right! After spending more than $100 per person, the establishment should be able to show their appreciation and well wishes in a slightly more generous fashion - even just one dessert - the strawberries were a pathetic way to congratulate!

Davios gets it right every time. My go to place .
I walked and they kindly handed me my gluten free menu. I was so impressed . Service was fabulous as well. My only complaint is the noise level. It was a Friday night so the bar was very crowded. We sat at a nice booth behind the bar. They let 4 very loud guys stand almost on top of our table . It was obnoxious.

We sat in a booth by the bar at 12:30pm on Friday. It was very loud. We ordered the lunch prix fix menu. The Gazpacho was extremely spicy. We asked for more sour cream and were given a tiny bowl for the two of us. The waitress asked me if I would prefer a salad I said "yes". The salad had so little dressing on it, I think someone put a drop of olive oil on it! I had tuna which was good but the only item served with the tuna was another mini mountain of greens with oil. There was no choice for dessert ( on the menu there were two choices). We were told that they had panacotta but when the dessert was delivered, it was a tiny portion of rhubard crisp with a big scoop of ice cream. I am lactose intolerant so I scooped the ice cream off and the waitress asked me if she could get me another one without ice cream. By this point in the meal, I just gave up. Our waitress was extremely nice and did her very best to make the experience less painful.

We have enjoyed Davio’s brunch for quite awhile. We go because of the extensive gluten free menu. Unfortunately they no longer have a gluten-free brunch menu. Granted they could make some of the regular menu into a gluten free meal. Also I could order lunch from a gluten free menu but when you are going for brunch you don’t want ordinary food. In the end I could have an omelette. The reality is it’s nice to be able to look at a menu and make a decision rather than question what I could have. Let those of us with celiac feel normal. This is almost as bad as having someone tell you “maybe you should never go out to eat”. Yes, celiacs want to never socialize with humans, really?
