Nice staff. Food ok. It wasn't that warm at all. We went during brunch for fathers day. Staff left empty plates and glasses on table, and didn't clear table as new plates were brought out. Crumbs left on table as new utensils were placed right on top of crumbs. We had to clean our own table and ask for our plates to be moved. Instead of asking if we were finished and if it was ok to take our plates, Staff continuously reached over our food as we ate to grab the empty plates as we were trying to pass the empty plates to avoid that from happening. Instead of excusing themselves, staff squeezed past my 9 month olds seat, without saying anything, in which the the restaurant was not crowded and we were seated in an area by ourselves. There was food and plates dropped right next to my baby. Thank God nothing hit her. The restaurant is supposed to be kid friendly but has no changing tables for babies. Staff just needs better customer service/ restuarant etiquette.

We weren’t impressed. I do not usually write reviews but for this one, the price plus the hype it was significantly underwhelming. The scallops were over cooked, the pasta was over cooked as well and the dish had an over powering taste, couldn’t taste the mushrooms that were in it. The service from Joey was great but everything else was a huge disappointment. Mad because we really wanted to enjoy this.

Chicken livers, short ribs, and cheesesteak egg rolls. Wow! Any time. Great combination of foods. I know it is an Italian steak house but so many great items. Love this place. And our waiter Keith was special. And because it was Fathers Day my wonderful daughter Jackie treated us to dinner. Fantastic dinner at a special restaurant.

First time at Davio's. We have been wanting to try it for a long time. Finally made it there on Friday night. Place is beautiful with a great vibe and atmosphere. Bar was crowded but got a seat very fast. Loved the drinks. We were really looking forward to a fabulous dinner. Large menu with many favorite items... was hard to choose. Appetizers, our salads were great and even the servers were attentive at that time. We were loving it, talking about how we wanted to take family and friends back. Then dinner was served by the servers. I had Seafood with pasta red, it was dry and tasteless. Hubby got a chop with a la carte sides, all terrible. I thought maybe some extra gravy would help my dish but we never saw our waiter again. Not sure where he went but finally after waiting over 10 minutes, seem like an hour when you just staring at your food, a manager came by, and I told him what I needed. We asked if something has happened to our waiter because we hadn't seen him for some time. The waiter never came by after dinner was served asking if we received everything okay and if we needed anything more, he was gone. Bottom line, Atmosphere great, food fair, Prices high, service (that night) sucked!!

I took my 11 year old daughter here for a girls evening out, before seeing a show- we had a beautiful time! Valet parking was only $23 for unlimited parking until 11pm. This allowed us to leave our car there during the show as well as dinner. Tanya, our warm and kind server, helped us figure out what we really wanted to eat; delicious Chicken Parm Spring Rolls for my girl and perfect Steak Oscar for me. The fresh baked pop overs are amazing- we are still talking about them! Thank you for a great meal and good people!
