Dan, our waiter at Davio’s, made our evening perfect. He knows the menus, both food and wine, like the back of his hand. Adding to what we knew would be great food was a beautiful late April evening, so eating outdoors with view of the harbor was spectacular.

Cannot give higher marks!

Lunch was excellent, home cooked Italian pasta. Friendly and professional servers. Nice atmosphere and view overlooking Boston Harbor. Only complaint is parking was $37 for under 2 hours at a nearby garage, careful where you park!

Sunday brunch, very busy and a little understaffed so service not their usual five star. Food good, as a suggestion I would order all dressings on the side to prevent over saturation. Views amazing, and all covid protocols in place.

To me the best service, value, menu and overall experience is their lunch special during the week. Outstanding. Still, I absolutely love this restaurant and all they do so well. The pandemic has had even the best pivoting and adjusting. Davios is truly one of the greats and I have no doubt that we will enjoy many more spectacular meals here.

Great ambiance and very good food. Some plates were larger portions than I expected. Turnovers were a treat to start the evening, and a excellent selection of cocktails, wine, and beer. A nice birthday presentation with a signature baked Alaska dessert. Overall, an enjoyable evening!

My sister and I took our elderly parents to the Seaport location hoping for a dining experience to celebrate my mother's 77th birthday and their recent vaccinations. We arrived 25 minutes early and checked in with the hostess. Both of the hostesses were on the phone taking a take out order but neither looked up to acknowledge I was there. Finally when they got off the phone, they informed me they couldn't take us early (understandable, it's COVID) however the hostess didn't ask where we would like to sit and assumed outside. My parents are older and get cold very easily and we wanted to sit indoors. After some rearranging, they were able to get us an indoor table. Unfortunately, the hostess then brought us to the middle of the room when there was clearly many tables opened by the window. I asked if we could move and she very hesitantly did. We sat down, opened our menus (mine was filthy and clearly not cleaned) and waited. And waited. And waited. No one came to our table with water or even acknowledge us for over 10 minutes. Eventually I had to ask for someone to please wait on us. The waiter who eventually waited on us was wonderful and lovely but he was hard to find to pay for our check. At one point I went to the restroom passing the hostess stand again and one of hostesses was fully engaged and chatting with what seemed to be a 'regular' and it was clear to me that the staff doesn't treat all customers in the same manner. On our way out, there were people lined in the hallways and clearly not observing COVID protocol. The overall experience was quite disappointing especially since I had written in my reservation that it was a special day for my parents and their first time out since the pandemic. I will not return

Beautiful restaurant...great service and food. Loved that it did not feel "stuffy". Only minor criticism was dessert was fair. The service staff have to bring out cart...lots of work on their end so feel like it should've been unbelievable. Sat at bar and had great evening...thx you. Ps super clean!!!!

Food was very good but not quite up to Davios normal standards.
Some dishes over salted and lukewarm temperatures, just a bit uneven.
Service was very average, one item totally forgotten and another was switched.
Dishes were not cleared quickly. No major offenses but just not up to typical standards, and certainly not for the price.
It was very busy, so we are going to chalk it up to Covid times. We will certainly be back.

I usually don't respond to these requests. I must say we dined at the Seaport location on Easter. The food was very good as usual. However, the service could not have been worse. Our waiter "James" was disconnected from the start. The appetizers never arrived but were included on our bill. His response was "Oh, I thought they came, they didn't"! Also, when the attendant mistakenly poured water on my $400 sandal, no one seemed to care......

Very disappointed in the service quality unfortunately. I generally dine at the Lynnfield location which has MUCH better service.

Maybe just a bad day....Not great for a holiday!

And did I mention that I could see the waiter yawning under his mask!!!
