“Not one of the best but close”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I remember Davios when it was a small restaurant on Newbury street - and then because I was much younger and less well traveled, it was one of the best restaurant meals ever - it still does not, despite its growth, disappoint! The food was superb as was the service. We will keep coming back.

“Fantastic location- great seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

we went with a large party to celebrate a birthday- after a few snafu's ( an hour to take drink orders from 14 pp!) the management came to the rescue- the rest of the meal was flawless- love Davios!

“Great dinner with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We had a 6:30 reservation and ended up having a drink at the bar first - so we sat about 30 min late with no hassle from the podium. The waitstaff were very attentive and considerate. I had the special appetizer - and it was really good, seared scallops over angel hair pasta. The crab cake appetizer was great too. Dinner did not feel hurried - we took our time. Yes, this restaurant is expensive and I feel that it is worth it. Nothing was out of place, the food was very good, and the noise level in the restaurant was not annoying. Conversation was easy. My only nitpik was that the validated parking was only good for 3hrs, but I was at dinner just over 3hrs, so I ended up paying the full rate for parking; I should have just used the valet.

“Celebration Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We celebrated out daughter's graduation from law school here and it lived up to occasion. The atmosphere (in an old bank), attentive service and food added to the specialness of the evening. Our daughter choose it because of it's extensive gluten free options and she was not disappointed. Everything from the drinks to the varied meals (there were six of us) met or exceeded our expectations. The veal tenderloin was especially good, with large portions that meant there were leftovers for the next day's lunch. the pork chop was pronounced perfect by the consumer and was huge! Various steak dishes were equally well received. The salads were big enough to share. Highly recommend this restaurant. There is a public parking garage around the corner.

“A great Saturday night visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Great night at Davio's. Reservation was for 8:15, so we arrived a bit early to sit at the Bar with the great Bar staff. The table was ready by 8, so we sat down to a great meal. Steak for me, scallops for my bride of 30 years. The server was fantastic. He gave us all time we needed and knew the menu very well.
