The service is excellent. You are well-attended to by numerous waiters. The prices seem high, even for center city. With our discount the total bill including tip came to $165 which included a total of two drinks.

Nice place with quality food. Restaurant's classy look is somewhat degraded by tables being squeezed too much. It's expensive but you pay for quality. Our bill for four people was close to $300 (including tip) with no alcohol. All was delicious but wished that portions were slightly bigger. Also, on Saturday evening it was crowded and noisy. To noisy. Therefore,... More

This was a first time dining experience at Davio's for my mother and I. We stayed at the hotel next door which was very convenient as we had a Broadway show to make at 6:30p. Our server Jordan was superb in working with our time constraints and finding something on the vast menu that would fit our appetites. Jordan also... More

Davio's is a wonderful place. We just had a company party for 70 and reserved the upstairs dining room which is beautiful. Cassie did a great job planning the event and the staff was awesome! Everyone enjoyed the food and we hope to visit again soon! Thanks Davio's.

The part I liked least was how to get to the restaurant. It was on a small street behind a main road and required an elevator trip above another store. Therefore, the view was not that great.
