“Always excellent, service fine food and wine”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

We visit Boston every June just for the food and fun. We ave been to Davio's on the last three trips. Impeccable service, wine list is excellent, food always perfect. The handmade pasta was cooked to a perfect al dente. The lobster was tender and juicy. The Bolognese sauce over pasta was exceptional. We will be back year after year.

“All for show”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

A set menu was provided in a private area for a formal dinner. It was just dissappointing. This looked like a very refined restaurant but no course scored more than a 6/10 at best, with the main course being far too sweet scallops with creamed sweetcorn. The cockroach climbing the wall was just so off putting that I couldn't face dessert. I won't be rushing back to this restaurant when I am next in Boston!

“Great Steaks and Service”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Some of the best Onion Rings that we've ever had that paired well with the 12 oz. perfectly cooked medium rare 12 oz. American Kobe Beef Sirloin Steak.

Service was what one would expect from a higher end restaurant.

The chocolate lava cake was to die for!

“best Steaks ever”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I have been there twice and it was spectacular each time. I tried first the Sirloin Steak which was awesome. Inspired by the Sirloin I wanted to test the Ribeye on my second visit and it was one of the best Ribeyes I have ever had. The service is knowledgeable and friendly, also very attentive. Prices are of course high, but still lower than other Steakhouses with this quality in Boston. I suggest the asparagus and a Cesar salad as a side. Enjoy!

“Food Is Always Good”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Davio's in Boston is a great location. The bar area is nice and bar tenders very attentive. The food is always good, and flavorful. Never a bad meal. It can also accommodate larger parties. The crab cake and arugula salad appetizers are terrific. The pasta with sun dried tomatoes, apple wood smoked chicken and the mushroom gnocchi are also always yummy. Wait staff is attentive and well versed in the menu items. Also, the bread comes with delicious olives and spreads!
