On the plus side, I loved the Happy Hour prices, the popover rolls with dinner, the appetizers, the incredible service. On the so-so side, our entrees were not that good- especially considering the price! I am happy to pay any price for wonderful food but I didn't find it in the entrees. I will not be returning but I would... More

We went to Davio's for my stepdaughter's birthday last Friday night. As usual ,the service was excellent. Water was full, drink was full and food came out not too fast and not too slow. We have only been to Davios a couple of times. In my opinion it has it all. You can't go wrong with any cocktail or item... More

Here for a business dinner event. We were escorted to the Penthouse floor for cocktails and dinner. Had the pleasure of walking through the dinning area and it looked very nice and elegant. I loved that this place was in an old building and was well preserved as such. Our meals were pre-selected and chose the filet which was mouthwatering.... More

My husband had a business dinner at Davios several weeks prior to our visit and told me to make sure to ask for Neil. I did and I will say he was far and above the best waiter I have ever had. He made the dining experience even better than the food, which was superb!

We ate at a Davio's in New York last October, and at one in Philadelphia last week. It seems to be a reliable above-average chain. The service was good, the decor understated, and the food entirely satisfactory, if not exciting. Good place to go with unadventurous children or friends.

Davios is a good, typical restaurant, and many diners will not be disappointed...However, Philadelphia now has SO many wonderful restaurants and varied cuisines that, if a visitor has time, it is really worth exploring other options......!

Waiter was well versed and knew the specials as well as the other menu options. The only complaint I would have and it's not that major is the noise. It's a bit noisy.

When you show up, you are treated like a millionaire. A great way to start at a white table cloth venue. The food, though, could use some improvements. I had the fried oysters for appetizer.
