We celebrated my son's birthday. The staff greeted us with a HB greeting and accommodated a table near the window as requested. The food and service were excellent. Very good experience.

My boyfriend and I visited on 2/15/20 and had a reservation at 5:30. We got there at 5:20 and was told to wait until other people were seated but there was no one waiting so a little confused. We were seated and our waiter introduced himself, he was funny and relatable which made the meal very enjoyable. We started off with two White Snow Cosmos which were amazing! For the appetizer we had the sampler of spring rolls, which were again amazing! For dinner we were slightly disappointed, I had the basil pesto pasta which was good but nothing to write home about. My boyfriend had the lobster ravioli special dish which came out slightly cold and just wasn’t up to par. We both did have a dessert which again was great. Overall would go back again for drinks and apps, maybe try a steak and see if it’s better.

It was our second time at Davio's and we found it to be greater than the first time. Our server Pirece was excellent. The food was awesome and we had more than enough to take home with us. We even gave a recommendation to some people outside of the restaurant debating whether to to eat there. When we are in Philly again we will be going there. They are not just a restaurant but a great food experience.

We love Davios. Great menu with newer options I have not tried before. Though I always order the NY Strip I had the sea scallops and they were amazing. The crispy corn and shoe string potatoes made this dish perfect. Four of us dined each had something different and everyone was very pleased. Great wine list too! Will go again soon.

The service at dinner was amazing. However we were disappointed with the service at the bar. We had a drink while we were waiting for our table and the bartender’s attitude was very dismissive. Didn’t expect that from a place like this.

A return visit to Davios after a few previous meals. I wasn't disappointed. The veal agnolotti is wonderful. I had the veal tenderloin, done to perfection, with a excellent sauce. The side of asparagus was done to perfection. The second dinner's scallops were perfectly prepared. The accompanying dish of spaghetti simply prepared with oil and garlic produced a nice pairing.

The food was good. Recommend the food but our server seemed distracted and barely attended the table. He seemed more interested in a table with 5 single woman. Had other servers called to provide food items.

We celebrated a 50th birthday as well as took part of Restaurant Week. We generally go to Davio’s 2-3/year for several years now. It’s such a lovely place, the service is impeccable & the food and drinks delicious. When people ask me for nearby recommendations, Davio’s is always one of my first choices.
