I went to the Davio’s Restaurant on the Seaport for my Birthday and I was very disappointed. The food was not good and the service was okay with long gaps in the delivery of food. The salmon I ordered was very over cooked and dry. In general I would not recommend this restaurant despite its location and past reputation.

Service was slow given the shortage of help. The food was delayed in arriving and cold.
Not what I would have expected from this venue. Overall disappointing.

Steaks were overcooked (we asked for medium rare, they came out close to well done, but they were still good). Sides were incorrect/missed, but quickly fixed. What was odd is that I specified on OpenTable and with people at the restaurant that we were there for a birthday, and still was asked at dessert if we were present for a special occasion. Oh well, probably was an off night.

Solid Seaport Player. The ambiance is so great here and the location, right by the water, is a bonus. Davios has a nice, varied menu that is well executed. I love that when you order pasta it's served piping hot for full enjoyment. Everything we had was excellent. I enjoyed a couple of pieces of their spring rolls, we ordered the sampler plate to share. I think my favorite is the Buffalo Chicken. My entree, Sea Scallops served with Lemon Risotto was great (the lemon is not that pronounced and was perfectly cooked)... enjoyed the fresh peas included in this dish.

Other winning dishes that we ordered were the Oven Baked Lump Crab Cake w whole grain mustard, Arugula w Shaved Parmigiano and Lemon Olive Oil, Lemon Fusilli w Shrimp, Tagliatelle Bolognese with Braised Veal, Beef, Pork and San Marzano Tomatoes.
The Panna Cotta and Baked Alaska were excellent desserts.

Service is professional and attentive. Wines and Cocktails well executed.

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Food was great, the service wasn’t. My entree came before my Cesar salad and it was almost an hour wait with a reminder to our waiter for the wine. So it was clear they were having staffing issues. I’m sure this will improve once we get past COVID.

First off, I would like to say I love the area that Davio’s is at, by the water, Seaport District. I walked in with my party and was pleasantly and beautifully greeted and was seated outside at a beautiful table with a great view of the harbor and then we had the most outstanding waiter named Paul. He was so helpful, attentive plus great with suggestions. Paul met all our needs and some. We were celebrating my cousins 50th birthday. She was thankful and very pleased with my choice and so am I. We will definitely eat at this establishment again before the summer is out.

We dined out on the patio - the weather was perfect, and the noise level inside a bit high - the view of the seaport was amazing with the sunset! Service was impeccable throughout, very professional. Cocktails were original, and the wine list extensive. Every dish we ordered was spot-on, cooked to perfection and delicious. We will be back, and would recommend to everyone.

I took a friend to try the food, Everything was great as usual. We had the chicken with Brussels,penne with chicken, warm Spanish salad which is one of a kind, and the pork chop.

This location is my favorite location. They never, never, never messed up my meal.

Thanks Davio’s Seaport team!

We had an excellent lunch at Davios. We split a Caesar salad and Chicken Parm spring rolls to start. Both were excellent and the spring rolls unique. I then had the crab cake and it may have been the best one i have had. Very tender, plenty of succulent crab and a savory sauce. My wife had the Penne pasta which was also quite good. Our service was friendly and on point with everything. We will be back next time we are in town.

The hostesses were rude and definitely require better training!
The food was very good and so was our server, but when I rate the place, I want to factor in the overall experience.
The hostess makes us wait well beyond our reservation time. Then she decides to seat us upstairs even though we spotted empty tables in the main dining area. So the ambiance was terrible, it was our table and another couple. So it felt like we were eating in a deserted restaurant.
