I love Davios! They start out with complimentary Foccacia Bread and homemade potato chips. Sadly, it was not too busy at lunch and people are missing out. The food is great and the servers are friendly and attentive. Give this restaurant a try!

Had a good time. Lots of seafood on this visit, all cooked well. The scallops were perfect. Sides are enough for 2 to share. Some good drink choices. A nice amount of wine by the glass.

Service was outstanding, very attentive, table manicured perfectly. You man who was our waiter, name alludes me, he was from Colorado though! (-: great explanation on the menu, even wines for my significant other. Superb experience and we will be back. Manager even visited the table to check in. Lobster Risotto was awesome and the Thanksgiving dinner was delicious too.

Great food and ambiance! The ONLY issue with this place is the location. There is no convenient parking for the restaurant. For such an upscale restaurant, they need parking to be closer to the front door. That would help bring more people to the restaurant. The current valet parking is too far away. Adding this service to be just outside the door would help.

The parking issue has more to do with Grandscape management and nothing to do with the restaurant.

I would DEFINITELY go back for the food and service! There is nothing wrong with tis place at all!

The calamari was a little over cooked and we had to send a flat iron back because it was over cooked but the service was amazing. Belinda and the manager made sure we were taken care of and made corrections quickly. We will definitely go back again.

Service attentive, Food as everyone said it was. For a "Steakhouse", wished for more of a warm environment. Felt like you were eating in a Hotel Event Room.

With so many steakhouses to choose from, Davio’s remains our first choice and delivered yet another outstanding dining experience for our party of 5. The firm/meaty jumbo shrimp w/tangy cocktail sauce was amazing. The tomato soup and ½ portion Tagliatelle Bolognese was delicious. The halibut special was excellent. Both the bone in rib eyes and the filet were seasoned and cooked to perfection. The creamy mashed potatoes were a perfect accompaniment. Our server Jeremy provided friendly/well-timed service. The Colony location remains a regular stop for us and we look forward to returning soon.

It was an excellent first time experience.
The atmosphere was very relaxing and peaceful, something hard to find these days it seems every where you go it is so loud one cannot visit and No one leaves the kids home anymore.
The menu was great - so many good choices. I decided on The Sea Scallops, and glad I did. They were DELICIOUS.
Will definitely visit again.

This is a really nice place. The staff is attentive. The eggroll sampler was good. They have a kids menu available that my son enjoyed since he had to come at the last minute. Dress code didn't appear to be restrictive.

Our families first time via this restaurant. A major concert was going on near by which cause us a delay arriving for our reservation. The restaurant was busy making service slow. While we had many staff tending to our table at various times the waitstaff never introduced themselves which made it hard to distinguish who was our server. The food had mixed reviews from our party of 4. Overall we enjoyed the ambiance more than the food itself.

Wow! This was the best meal We have had in years. We just got back from eating at some fancy restaurants in Vegas and this place topped all the meals we had. Every single thing we ordered was amazing. The service was top notch. We can’t wait to go back and try some new dishes.
