We had a fabulous dinner at Davio’s this past week. The portions were large so dessert was out of the question. The staff was very attentive.

Beautiful room. Elegant atmosphere for a special occasion. Food was delicious. We had the filet and the lobster. Pricey but worth it.

Service was excellent. We had the Ribeye (excellent) and the Branzino (meh), the gnocchi as appetizer (very good), and a lemon cake dessert. Would recommend.

Service was excellent, risotto was too al dente for my liking, wine is way overpriced. Dining room was maybe 1/3 full on a Saturday night. Indicates to me Davio's caters to the corporate clients with their pricing. It's definitely worth a visit for the ambiance and excellent service. My wife had the salmon which she loved.

Food was fantastic, great gluten free menu (and even gluten free bread for the table). Be sure to notice the dress code (business casual), as we didn't and were a bit underdressed, but otherwise everything was great.

Very positive dining experience, one appetizer was overdone and the waiter promptly replaced it to our satisfaction. I won't hesitate to dine at or recommend Davio's again. Thank you!

We picked Davio's for this business lunch for all the reason we gave them 5 stars: great service (servers were attentive without being intrusive), great food (taste and variety excellent), ambiance was elegant without being ostentatious. Our whole team enjoyed the experience. We will do it again for other groups. Thank you Davio's!

The Octopus, Oysters and Scallops were excellent. Filet Mignon was good but surprisingly a bit chewy.
Overall, I would highly recommend. Also, the bread was delicious and so was the crème brulee.

Davio’s lunch special for $28 was well worth it. The burrito was delicious and the veal tenderloin sandwich was excellent. The very small strawberry cannoli was an added treat. The ambiance is superb and one does not feel rushed.

We began our 4 day visit to Philadelphia with a visit to Davio’s and it was a perfect way to begin the exploration of Philly. The restaurant is connected to the Club Quarters Hotel which I have stayed in previously and like their service. Our reservations at Davio’s were acknowledged by name and we were quickly seated. The servers were attentive but non-obtrusive which made for a well-paced meal. This is a great place for a quiet conversational dinner which is what we prefer. The ambience is elegant yet relaxed. The food was exceptional; creatively presented, superbly prepared and just the right portions. While it is on the expensive side, it is worth every penny. My wife throughly enjoyed the Davio’s sausage with Pear Mostar day and I devoured the pan roasted scallops with sweet baby corn and match stick potatoes after the Shrimp Cotija Spring rolls. You have to try the spring rolls! We will return for sure.

Time and time again, Davio's doesn't disappoint. While it is definitely expensive, you get what you pay for in terms of quality and experience. One of the people in our party had life threatening food allergies and while the menu was limited for her, the waiter and kitchen did everything to make her experience safe and as wonderful as everyone else's. Thank you Davio's!!

Wonderful restaurant—yummy food, varied menu, great service and lovely ambiance. We had their incredible chicken livers, a celestial arugula/lemon salad, and two kinds of delicious pasta. And ended the meal with passion fruit sorbet—wow. We will be back soon.

Keith was probably one of the best servers I’ve ever had. He’s personable and genuine, he created an awesome experience for us. His knowledge of the menu items was vast and his recommendations were spot on. The food was excellent as well!

We had drinks in the bar (great waitress) and dinner for a group of 7. The service was excellent, as was the food, and the room is beautiful. The only downside was that the wines were absurdly overpriced and mediocre in quality.

Once again Davio's has not disappointed. I brought 3 first timers with me and they were more than impressed. From the attention at the bar while waiting for our friends to arrive to dessert the attention to detail was a 10+ . Thank you again for making dinner in the city a pleasure.

I was there to celebrate my husbands promotion and the waiter kept telling him Happy Birthday...I wrote it on my reservation and asked for DAsti wine which they didn't have for us at the table or anything that was celebratory...The waiter spoke very fast so we could not understand what he was saying...Not what I expected from looking at the reviews....May come back because the food was actually good but probably not for a celebration.....disappointed

A very good steakhouse in the heart of Philly. Parking is tough but food is worth it. The quality of food from the appetizers to the entree was exactly what you would expect from a top steakhouse. I will definitely go back.
