My food had luck of salt and flavor. The octopus was the best dish of the nights and that was just ok.

Enjoying lunch here after an absence of several years, we were pleased that the ambiance, quality of food and attention to service all are still first rate. Although it was Restaurant Week, we were impressed that the special dishes reflected the high quality beyond Restaurant Week. We'll be back soon.

I felt as though the waiter should've asked how do you want the lamb loin cooked because everyone doesn't eat raw meat.

Davio's, a truly elegant and complex meal. The flavors were incredibly sophisticated and a 3 course-meal is perfectly portioned (whereas many other similar restaurants fill you up too much). The lamb was out of this world, and the service was incredible.

We were there for restaurant week. The food was very good, but they were quite busy so we had to wait a bit for our table. It started to clear out around 8:30 and then it became a more enjoyable dining experience. Our waitress was charming and very accommodating.

We went for restaurant week and had food off that menu and the regular menu. The food was very good. The raviolis were prepared perfectly, they were al dente. The Bresole was ok. The desserts were unique and had good flavor.

I threw a surprise birthday party here during Sunday Brunch. The restaurant was super clean and everyone was so friendly. The brunch menu was delicious! It had a little bit of everything on it and the prices were reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Food was delicious. The only complaint our party had was that our waitor was a bit to pushy. Whatever we said he started off with no you shouldn't do this or that. For example my fiance asked for a straw and his response was "you don't need a straw". He wasn't mean or anything it's just that it became very annoying.

Went for birthday celebration with friends. Seated right away. Took some time for our apps and salads to come out. Then equal time for the entrees to come out. Friend found a piece of hair in her salad, manager apologized and comped. Some food not seasoned well. All in all a 2 hour dining experience.

Celebrating my daughters. Birthday. Although the food was Fantastic my daughter ask the waiter two times to substitute the cream corn and the other veggie with string beans and mashed potatoes. Instead of substituting he just ordered sides of both She did not receive the veggies that she didn’t like We didn’t understand why the could not have been substituted.

Also although the food and menu are very good there are No specials offered. Most restaurants have specials

Overall I was pleased.

Every time we've been to Davio's it's been great. Downtown Philly is the only one we've been to but I'm sure the others are just as good. My wife and I split a 14 oz.strip steak because we have small appetites and it was excellent. The service was perfect.

Davio has been a favorite for my family for years-hosted celebrations-stop in for Sunday brunch and lunch at least a couple times a month. We are always greeted with warmth-welcome back". The food is marvelous-have never had a bad meal. In fact-my special taste for sorbet is honored-every time.

Hostess a disaster and not doing the reputation of Davio’s any good. Once seated, food and waiter were outstanding and beyond my expectations. The hostess almost ran us off. I hope management will take appropriate actions.

When your guests buy a bottle of wine, it would be nice if you offered to decant it. Your $80 Davios Pinot needed to breathe. The green beans with pancetta- pancetta was burnt. Other than that, it was a lovely evening and we were very pleased with our experience. We can’t wait to come back.
