We enjoyed the meal and the service was very good. My only compliant is that we arrived 15 minutes early for our 8pm reservation but we were not seated until 8:30.

A fine dining establishment, that checked all the boxes for a great experience.

While there's no doubt you pay for the quality, it is quality, and more than enough of it for a wonderful evening.

very disappointed in food, dress code(people being dressed like they go to Macdonalds). It has changed since we were there last. However, our waited was very good. Davio's in KOP is a much more dining experience.

Birthday Dinner for my best gal. She has to eat gluten free, and the wait staff went over and above to make sure she was taken care of. We have been a few times, food is always great, and the best service we have had to date. We will be back for sure!!!

Our server, Rene C., provided an incredible experience. My boyfriend and I are far from wine experts, which can be intimidating in some high-end restaurants, but Rene made us feel more than comfortable. He provided us with the perfect pairings for our dinner selections without question. We will be dining here again, especially because of Rene.

Disappointed that a steakhouse cooked my steak wrong. I asked for med -well and it came raw in the middle. Sent it back then it came back overcooked. Expected more for that price. Others in my party were satisfied with their meal so I gave the overall experience a 4 star. Service was great.

I would imagine this was because of it being restaurant week but the food was really just ok. I had lamb and it was over cooked. The soup was good and the salads that the rest of the group I was with were good. Service was excellent! Our server was very accommodating and friendly. Don't know if I would go back if the food is of the same quality on a regular visit.

Food is not very good, although the environment is good. Soup is so cold. Chicken is not fully cooked. Desert is okay. Service is not as classy as the restaurant looks like.

The restaurant was very mediocre. Attracts an older crowd. Ambiance is not that of a typical steakhouse. Not a fan of the wait staff. Won't be returning.

I ordered the Restaurant Week special and each course was just delicious. Can't wait to return and order off the regular menu. Our waiter - from Argentina - was highly personable and very efficient. Ambiance couldn't have been nicer. My grandson and I were highly pleased with entire experience.

My recent visit was very disappointing. The food was over cooked and extremely dry. I ordered the flank of lamb and my friend ordered the salmon both entrees were not enjoyable . Perhaps because it was Restaurant Week and the food was prepared well in advance and sitting in a warming oven where it continued to cook - i’m not sure but I know it was NOT good, The appetizers on the other hand were delicious and the desert was delightful. I have eaten at Davios on previous occasions and have had out of this world delicious meals because of that I would recommend Davios to others but if I based my recommendation on my most recent experience I would say “never again”.

What a shame that a famed steakhouse doesn’t provide any steak! Their menu posted online wasn’t the same one provided in the restaurant! If you are going to do the Center City Restaurant Week, I recommend you visit the Capital Grille over this place-which has much more food to offer for the price. Moreover, for so little people dinning in, the wait time for the bill was excessive.

We had a fabulous experience. Have always wanted to go to Davio's and I was not disappointed. Food and service were superb. Beautiful room and the dividers helped make a large room seem intimate. Hope to go back again soon.

One of my favorite restaurants in Philly. One of my go to places with out of town guests. Went on Saturday with 3 couples from out of town and Davio's didn't disappoint. Everything was outstanding and the guests were still raving about it the next day.

Lynea our server was very kind and accommodated our requests to make substitutions to our order. She steered my husband to make the best choice while saving money! He ordered the 14 oz ribeye Oscar style with horseradish mashed potatoes. It was the BEST tasting steak we’ve eaten in a while! I ordered the sea scallops and substituted the beet salad instead of the sides the order came with. Delish!! The pop over rolls were tasty and our drinks were amazing. I had the Davio’s Doli and it didn’t disappoint! For dessert we shared the warm chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream. Not only was it amazing, but Floor Manager, Mike comped the dessert for us just bc we were friendly! I can’t say enough great things about our experience at this establishment. We will definitely be back again! Thanks Mike and Lynea, as well as the rest of your attentive team! You guys are doing and excellent job!

We decided to try Davio's during restaurant week to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first time visiting the restaurant and we were very impressed. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. My husband got the spicy crab soup and I had the tomato and mozzarella salad - so good. Our entrees were equally impressive - we opted for the cod and the shrimp pasta. Perfectly spiced and portioned. The dessert sampler was also delicious. We would definitely love to come back to celebrate again sometime soon!

Our server was very pleasant but at lunch time service was on the slow-side (it was busy due to restaurant week)
The food was delicious! An excellent value for restaurant week
I am eager to stop back in to select from their regular menu.
