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. It was smothered with thick bacon chunks, and the batter-to-oyster ratio was as though there was no oyster! I could not taste the oyster at... More

It was a very nice and interesting place with a great atmosphere and very welcoming staff. I was however disappointed with the beef sub that I had. I felt it tasted very bland with a lack of flavor.

We took advantage of valet parking. We were a party of 6, visiting on a Friday evening during Restaurant Week. We waited, comfortably, in the lounge area until the rest of our party arrived. We were then seated promptly. Service was impeccable. Food was above average. They served complimentary cheese steak springrolls. Yum. Sweet potato gnocchi very nice, mushroom bisque... More

My friend and I stayed across the street, and after reading several positive reviews we decided to give it a try. We were in town for a concert and didn't have any "dressy" clothes, so we were definitely underdressed. Even though we underdressed, we weren't treated poorly - our waiter even complimented my friend on his band shirt. We ordered... More
