I was really disappointed in the short rib dinner. This is my 3rd or 4th time eating there and the other visits were amazing.

I also wasn't impressed with the dessert.

I ordered from the restaurant week menu this trip. All other times I paid full price.

Thanks for asking.

Employees here are super friendly and very knowledgeable on what they have to offer on their menu. It took over 50 minutes for my entree to come out after receiving my appetizer, which left me baffled since it was on a Sunday. I didn’t really enjoy my meal, but I’ve heard good things about their steaks. I’m glad I went during restaurant week as opposed to a normal night.

It was a perfect evening. I was served gluten free roll, good recommendations for my meal from our server as well. The food was amazing and I would definitely recommend. Bravo for making a gluten free dinner out safe for me!

The Restaurant Week menu was terrific with a great variety.

Our table was right behind the hostess desk, it was so noisy. Had a view of the kitchen and it was very loud, killed the ambiance. My chair got bumped several times by service staff and other patrons. I will come back but will ask not to be seated at that table. I’ve been here before many times and the food and service are always excellent and they were excellent this past time. But ambiance is everything, and this was just really disappointing.

Service was awesome!! if you’re looking for a great server, we recommend Keith. he’s professional, likeable & patient. overall aura was decent & food was fresh. my only recommendation would be to make portion sizes larger for the price you pay. other than that, it was a good experience.

Great location felt very comfortable from the moment we arrived. Everyone working there were genuinely nice and seemed to enjoy working there. Food was fantastic most difficult was deciding what to order since there were so many great choices but thanks to Keith our server extraordinaire we made great choices and loved all that we tried. The Kobe Meatballs are a must for the true Italian food lover. We would rank their steaks as the top in Center City and we have tried most of the great steak houses Philly has to offer. We will be back Davios

We went to celebrate our 11 year old daughter’s birthday and it was a wonderful experience all around. The entire staff is pleasant, warm, knowledgeable, and seems to care about making the experience memorable. Our server, Neil, was terrific. Had such a nice way about him and really good with the kids. My in laws (who complain about “expensive, fancy dining”) raves about the service and food. Thank you!!

My husband and I spent New Year’s Eve there. We always go
there for this occasion and it was good as usual. Service was great and the atmosphere good but could have been a bit warmer and the noise level was a bit higher than comfortable. The prix fix menu was interesting, but the food came only luke warm and the lobster tail was quite hard and portions were quite small. The dessert was delicious though.

We have been to Davios several times. Thought NYE would be great. Not so. Service was ok. We order a bottle of Prosecco for midnight. Never got it. Never asked if we wanted coffee or dessert (which we wanted). The check arrived. We paid and left!

Who said you can’t get a good meal on New Years Eve? Davio’s is our definite go to for very special events. Everything is absolutely perfect - the ambience, food, and service are impeccable. From the time you walk in to the time you leave, it’s just one smooth operation and a delicious experience. It’s not cheap, but they definitely prove the old adage that you get what you pay for.

Decided to have dinner in Philadelphia last minute on NYE! Looked at some of our fav restaurants and Davio's had a 7:30 table for 2. Entire evening was perfect from being seated quickly to our server with great suggestions. Loved it.

I've been to Davio's locations in Boston and King of Prussia. The Philadelphia location is BY FAR the best of the three. The food is always perfect and the service is spot on. It's my favorite steak in Philly.

Our favorite Christmas Eve tradition! Food and service were top-notch as always. Bartenders are very attentive. Servers welcome you by name. Our appetizer, main courses and dessert did not disappoint.

I recommend Davio's but not at the holidays. We waited 55 minutes for drink orders to be taken then only
6 of the 8 arrived 15 minutes later and 2 of them were made wrong. One of my guests took over going back and forth to the bar to get things right. Next the bottle of wine that was poured without tasting was definitely spoiled and needed to be replaced. After 90 minutes and complaints to management everything was pulled together and went smoothly. The food was delicious and the rest of the service was fine. I have hosted about a half dozen dinners there and the place is normally great but clearly they do not staff properly for very busy nights like December 23rd. I have had the same waiter before without a problem but even he was complaining about the work load. My guests do not need to hear that.

Had a good dinner for a birthday of a friend of mine. Being that it’s the week before Christmas, I expected it to be very busy, and it was. I think the kitchen was a little overwhelmed, as things were a little slower than usual and the quality was a smidge lower than usual. Not bad by any stretch, but not the standard that Davio’s Philadlephia normally holds itself to any other week of the year.

We had lunch at Davio’s on a busy Friday the week before Christmas. The restaurant was filled with families and office parties. Despite the crowd, the service was excellent and the food delicious. One of our party couldn’t resist a steak which was very good and 2 of us had the 3 course lunch special which was delicious. While we usually visit Davio’s for Sunday brunch or for dinner, our first weekday lunch experience did not disappoint. Outstanding service and meals.
