First, Davio's is one of my favorite places to eat in Philadelphia. This visit was in August with a bestie for a girl friends weekend. The level of service is top notch-maybe a little too top notch if there is such a thing. We had a LOT of people waiting on us, checking on us, taking our drink order, talking... More

Elegant atmosphere, food was okay and service was pretty standard. I just didn't feel the 'wow' factor that I had read about prior to going. I was a guest at the adjoining Club Quarters Hotel and decided to go for Sunday Brunch. Staff was accommodating as I requested a table close to a window. Starter bread tray was very nice... More

I am giving this a 5 stars only for drinks and its "looks". I did not eat there. My friend invited me for a drink to show off the architectural details, and it is stunning. I can't wait to have dinner there next time.

This restaurant was recommended to me, and perhaps for steak it is good, but the pasta my friend and I ordered was terrible. Way too spicy in a bad way, very undercooked, just plain bad. And when we complained the staff was arrogant beyond belief. Never again would I go there.

This is a venue to make the right impressions on your companion without too much stress. But you have to be careful to also expect that you can not just have a pizza like you're in your friendly neighbourhood pizzeria! Still, I would recommend it for celebration of an anniversary, a business dinner with customers, or associates. Good service.
