When we checked in for our 8 pm reservation we were informed they were running about 20 mins behind and suggested we have a seat at the bar. Should’ve left then but decided to stick it out. After more than 20 mins of waiting we finally were seated (mind you more than half of the tables were unoccupied this entire time so must’ve been a staffing issue)
Started out fine, but after our apps were dropped our server never came back once to check on us. Apps were great by the way. After sitting with dirty plates and waiting for our entree for a good 45 minutes we finally were able to flag our server down and we asked if our food was coming. He completely forgot to ring it in, forgot about us and acted surprised when we asked about our food. He said the kitchen was slow and he would go check on it. We ended up taking it togo and eating in our hotel room, but we got back to our hotel to find we didn’t have silverware in our bags.
The restaurant did comp our entrees however, but the way the server handled our experience was unprofessional and just aggravating. If he would’ve apologized and owned up to the mistake it would’ve been fine but he didn’t even try to apologize. Unfortunate as we were very excited for this dinner but due to the horrible service I would not recommend dining here anytime soon.

Food was okay, but everything else lacked. We were seated 30 minutes late even with reservations. The restaurant was loud and an overbearing crowd, the less inspiring and admiring side of the greater city of Boston. Waitress was nice and conversational and the bar tender was good.

Service was zero. We had many waiters and no one came to take our order right away.
2 out of the waiters that took our order were rude and didn’t even ask if we wanted side order with the steak.
When the food came it was incomplete and it took them long to bring the fries and asparagus.
They even didn’t bother to refill our drinks or asked us if we wanted dessert.

Appetizers never arrived and the server stated that he forgot them. Had to wait 20 min to even find our server and then another 20-30 to get our drinks. Will not be returning.

Love it. Beautiful window seat, The meal was good especially the popovers for brunch.
The only lacking item, was the Fresh Fruit Bowl, it was so small and disappointing.
But the place was wonderful for Father's Day.

We really enjoyed our dinner. Staff was aware that we were celebrating my GF birthday so they made it feel like a very special occasion for her. Loved the drinks, apps (spring rolls) and our dinners and deserts. Service was exceptional. I did have the scallops dish and was surprised to see the sea scallops at bay scallop size. Loved the outdoor seating as well. Inside did seem very loud to the two of us so i dont think we would ever eat inside.

Amazing place, great food and attentive (but not nagging) service and beautiful view. Only reason for 4 out of 5 on "ambiance" was the noise level was so high that even with just a group of 3 at a high-top table, we were shouting to hear each other. Otherwise, awesome place!

Food was excellent
Server was a bit pushy and arrogant. Interrupted our conversation to tell us to pay the bill and basically get out as they had the clear out table… when paying $300+ for two people, not a great way to end the experience

Loved everything about our first time at Davio’s!! Our anniversary dinner was special from the moment we sat down with the beautiful harbor views. Sebastian was thorough with explaining the menu, favorites and very attentive to us all night. It is going to be our go to for fresh Italian and seafood!! Already planning our next visit!

Prices are a little steep for lunch, especially now that so many companies are putting curbs on meal expenditure. Most meals don’t come with sides. We ordered the chicken parm spring rolls which were dry on the inside but soggy on the outside because of too much marinara. The jumbo shrimp was definitely decent but was a little over cooked and swimming in sauce. Grilled salmon looked good but my colleague left half uneaten and didn’t take the rest home. For a side we ordered asparagus. I think there were a total of five sprigs on the plate…
