We loved the attentive wait staff. Sat our group of 6 in a quiet corner. Wait staff was very knowledgeable on the menu and helped those in our group feel comfortable. The steaks were excellent and coodked perfectly to everyone's desire.

Since the Boston Davios is one of our favorite restaurants, we booked the NY outpost and were SO disappointed. I read the other reviews, which were great, so we went. I cannot imagine for the life of me, where these folks were coming from. Our experience was no bad, just so mediocre, especially for the money.

From the moment we descended the stairs into the basement restaurant(complete with exposed pipes), I felt like we were eating in my mothers basement in Cleveland. Had expected a grand beautiful space like Boston and was so disappointed. And then the menu was so limited as well, compared to Boston.

The food was fine, not great, nothing special. Service was nice, but nothing special. One in our party had a steak, another the scallops. For the prices, the food did not stand out as memorable.

I can't imagine what Steve Defillippo was thinking when he choose this space? It is a basement, pure and simple. The Boston space is beautiful, the menu inventive and delicious. What a tremendous disappointment.

Before our NYC visit, we had failed to book a restaurant for Christmas Eve. The concierge at the Westin Hotel was able to get us in at Davio's, and what a treat! Two in our party had the filet, one had the scallops, and one the roasted chicken. We all loved our meals...and the desserts...well, the chocolate lava cake, the bread pudding, the lemon cake all were exquisite. But, I must say, it was the service that was even more exceptional than the luscious meal. The staff was attentive, fun, polite, but never stuffy. They even sent us on our way each with a gift of a fruit cake muffin. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Very enjoyable meal here. We ordered a salad each for starters and shared the 30oz long bone rib-eye (slightly too much but couldn't bear to leave any as it was so good) and because we were feeling greedy we shared a dessert. A decent bottle of red brought the bill to around $250 including service. Not cheap, certainly, but good value given the quality of the food and excellent service.

Fantastic restaurant and the service was some of the best I have ever had in a restaurant. All the staff had personalities but were not overbearing. Willing to give their opinion but absolutely not pushy. The menu was varied - some great Italian options (pasta etc) but also innovative and exciting. I would highly recommend but watch the portion sizes...they were huge!
