The ambiance is romantic. The space is lovely. The food amazing. Three of us and we all said it was a fantastic meal. We shared oysters on the half shell. I had the veal chop, tender and delicious. The other entrees were bone in NY strip and scallops with pancetta, bucatini and pomodora sauce. The popovers are possibly the best I’ve had. My guests both ordered desserts and exclaimed they were a fabulous ending to a fabulous meal. Wish I could remember our servers name as he was attentive but not intruding. It’s WONDERFUL.

Celebrated our anniversary and had a nice table by the window with great view of the city. Our waiter was very attentive but also gave us the right amount of time to celebrate. Drinks and dinner were delicious.

Visiting Philly and wanted a nice restaurant before a show. The ambiance and service were outstanding but the pasta dishes were bland and ok at best. The only reason we would come back is because our server Keith was very attentive and engaging. With so many other options Philly, I would consider other Italian restaurants if you’re looking for good pasta.

The portions are very small for the prices charged. Only 4 oysters in oyster Rockefeller was not enough. $45 for 1/2 of a steak Is ridiculous

My wife and I were celebrating my daughter’s 27th birthday. We opened up with the octopus app and the farro salad both of which were excellent. I had the ny strip, my wife had the salmon and my daughter had the chicken. The entrees were all perfectly cooked and delicious. The sautéed spinach and fingerling potatoes were also great. The service was stellar and the general manager stopped by a couple times to ensure our experience was awesome.
Btw, the chocolate mouse cake was also delicious.

We met some friends on Saturday night for 8:00 dinner. Bar service while waiting for our table was very slow and bartenders seemed grumpy. after being seated at a small table,Our waiter was okay at best, we did have a look around and wait for him several times for drinks. App's and dinner were just okay, Not r=impressed at all. I have been to the new KOP location and the service and food was outstanding. Maybe just a bad night the staff?

Wonderful!!! Rob is a great bartender. Our server was terrific. She paced it well and we didn’t feel rushed at all. Thank you for that! Only recommendation would be no tarragon in the drawn butter. Just leave it as butter. Also didn’t necessarily like the truffle in the Mac and cheese. Lobster was great and the risotto as well. Thanks again for a great evening. We will return 😊

Used to be a favorite place for good food and excellent service but last 2 dinners were not up to par. Decided to try it for brunch before the ballet matinee and the service was terrible...waited way too long for entrees and only 3 of the 4 finally came and they were not really not enough. 4th came out when the rest of us were almost finished. Less than 1/2 the tables were taken so it was not very busy and other parties seem to be getting their orders ok...
Not much interest from the waitress and a weak apology from the manager. No accommodation for such terrible service, no offer of dessert, wine, something off the check....nothing.
Doubt we will go back.

Anniversary dinner w my wife. She was in the mood to share entrees. Our waiter heard the comments and rather than being out 2 entrees had the kitchen separate each item onto separate, small plates to make it easy to enjoy.

The food was awesome and the service was better. We will definitely eat there again.

My husband & I celebrated our wedding anniversary tonight at. Our server Tonya was delightful - just the right blend of friendliness & attentiveness.
She recommended the special & it was delicious.
Thank you to the staff at Davio’s for a perfect anniversary dinner.

This is not my first time at Davio's. I had a much more favorable experience in the past. This visit...it was extremely loud, to the point of annoyance. The server was overly attentive. We requested a quiet table for a romantic evening and not so much. Nonetheless, the food did not disappoint and it never does.

Fantastic meal....pasta dishes were exceptional and we also had some wonderful veal and salmon dishes. Service could not be better. The only glitch all night was a poorly made whisky sour, but it was promptly replaced with a nice glass of Pinot Grigio.

The food was very good. Our server was alright, but took way too long to check on us. We were frequently in need of refills that went unaddressed. We were also seated at a table that seemed squeezed between other tables, next to a pole. It didn't fit. Every server/patron that walked past us bumped into my chair. I felt like I was at the dunce table. We did have a reservation so the accommodations were disappointing. I am not rushing back.

A fine dining establishment, that checked all the boxes for a great experience.

While there's no doubt you pay for the quality, it is quality, and more than enough of it for a wonderful evening.

very disappointed in food, dress code(people being dressed like they go to Macdonalds). It has changed since we were there last. However, our waited was very good. Davio's in KOP is a much more dining experience.

Birthday Dinner for my best gal. She has to eat gluten free, and the wait staff went over and above to make sure she was taken care of. We have been a few times, food is always great, and the best service we have had to date. We will be back for sure!!!

Our server, Rene C., provided an incredible experience. My boyfriend and I are far from wine experts, which can be intimidating in some high-end restaurants, but Rene made us feel more than comfortable. He provided us with the perfect pairings for our dinner selections without question. We will be dining here again, especially because of Rene.

Disappointed that a steakhouse cooked my steak wrong. I asked for med -well and it came raw in the middle. Sent it back then it came back overcooked. Expected more for that price. Others in my party were satisfied with their meal so I gave the overall experience a 4 star. Service was great.

I would imagine this was because of it being restaurant week but the food was really just ok. I had lamb and it was over cooked. The soup was good and the salads that the rest of the group I was with were good. Service was excellent! Our server was very accommodating and friendly. Don't know if I would go back if the food is of the same quality on a regular visit.
