The atmosphere on the patio on a nice night is very nice, with a beautiful view of the harbor and the skyline. The dishes we ordered were good, but perhaps not great in terms of flavor. The gnocchi's we ordered were soft, but did not have much flavor. The appetizers we ordered (spring rolls) were very good.

The price for each dish is high, but you are paying for service, the view, and the atmosphere.

When we think about celebrations this is always our first option and it never disappoints!
From the starter to the dessert the quality and tastes of everything was outstanding. Definitely fine dining. It can be expensive but worth it! Service is very professional. Ideal for those who want a romantic night out. There was also plenty of room for bigger groups. The view of Boston Harbor is amazing and valet parking is extremely convenient.
Love this place and will continue to visit!!

The service was incredibly slow. It took 30 minutes for a waiter to come to our table and that was after we flagged someone down. It was another 20 minutes until someone took our drink orders. The slow service continued throughout the entire meal. The food was fine, but for the price it could have been a lot better.

The staff was rude and unsynchronized. Two different servers were trying to take our order without knowing that the other was helping us. The dishes arrived for half the guests and delayed for the others, putting us in the awkward position of either eating first or letting our food get cold. When asked to have the bartender make us a mocktail of their choice, we were served lemon soda. Very unimaginative. Lastly, the glass in which the panna cotta was served was cracked and broke while we were eating. The waiter just listened to us and gave no response. The staff seemed to nice people but inattentive having been overworked. Very underwhelming experience. Do NOT recommend

Outstanding as usual! The food is superb, wonderful service and the patio is open and has a spectacular view! Davio's continues to be a consistent favorite - we visited it annually when living in Califonia & visiting Boston and now we are fortunate to be close by and are there frequently. All of the staff are great and the GM, Armando, goes out of his way to ensure a great experience for all!

Terrible Friday afternoon lunch. Service at the bar was almost non-existent. Service at the dinner table was worse. Food was sub par. The place was not busy at all. It seems they didn't have enough help in any department from the kitchen to the wait staff. Will not return.

Understandably places are getting busier with the reopening, but when you have a reservation for 7:30 and you're not seated until 8:00 there is a problem. Other than having to wait our experience was good, from food and drinks to the wait staff. A very nice evening.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating my sons graduation. Paul our waiter was very attentive and helpful, a couple of folks in our party had food allergies and he was awesome working with the chef on certain dishes to serve up. The ambiance was great, food fantastic and we had a super corner table where the views were terrific. A memorable evening and we shall definitely be back.. thank you!!

The overall experience was very enjoyable. The staff from the front end to the runners were very friendly and accommodating. Our server Jose was exceptional, very friendly and knowledgeable with the menu his recommendations were spot on. never hovered over us but was there when we wanted to order or had questions. It made for a very enjoyable evening for our group of 4. It is on the pricey side but for us it was well worth it!!! If you have a special event or dinner planned this is the place to go.

Overall the experience was amazing. The food, the service and the drinks were top notch... not to mention the view. Best experience we've had in a vary long time including pre-covid. We will now be regulars.

P.S. Paul will give you attentive service and great, honest advice from start to finish navigating the menu. His professionalism and attitude keeps excellent personalized service at a very high level and is a rare thing these days.

we love Davio Seaport. Beautifully set by the water, interior of the restaurant is upscale yet cozy. The seared foie gras, the crispy chicken liver and the Mediterranean Cosmo are absolutely delicious. we went twice even though we stayed in the west end.

David’s Seaport location is an absolutely amazing location to have a meal. The food was great, the desserts weren’t really my favorite thing, but the butter cake was pretty good. The service is the reason why I will be a repeat patron; my wife and I were treated like royalty.

With a reservation we still had to wait for a table, Nearly a half hour on a Thursday night. The hostess could have been more communicative about seating choices as she appeared to give preference for repeat customers. Our server was wonderful & kind but we felt Forgotten about as we were in a separate room near the entrance. Overall the drinks and food were wonderful, service was good. Views are great on the seaport.

We had dined here the Friday before and the service and food were worthy of 5 stars. This time on a Thursday the swordfish was not tender and the service waiting time was very, very long. This was a week vacation for my wife and me to Boston. We were very disappointed with this experience.

Fantastic service at a great table - high top inside, along the glass wall facing outside. Server was attentive but didn’t hover and took table allergy seriously. We felt cared for from our warm greeting through the return of our check.
