Fantastic GF menu and excellent steaks...Stunning wine and wonderful service. Portions were big, especially the antipasti, and we ate all of it. Think we were there for about 3 hours. :)

Had a business dinner on 9-27-12 with 14 people at a banquet in the main dining room. The food was excellent. The wait staff and bus people worked very professionally.

There's only one very big "BUT", the noise level was excruciating; it was even difficult without lip reading to understand the person directly opposite. Not good for business. The problems are caused by a very lively bar and hard edge surfaces. There are private rooms available.

We had an event here in one of their private rooms....Patty and Joe the manager did a great job working with us and having the room ready for our event. The staff here was prompt and efficient in their service and food was delicious. The bar area and bartenders did a great job for our 'pre dinner' group.

Great location, ambiance, decor, and food. We were there on a Monday night and it was not busy. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Not worth it when there are a zillion other places nearby that are better! If you thought Durgin Park was known for having bad service and rude wait staff - you are sadly mistaken as Davios is on that list. Maybe with enough drinks bald old waiters (who work the bar area) can come across funny with their SURLY attitudes but not this night.

With no room at the bar, we sat at the lounge tables and waited over 20 mins for someone to drop a drink menu or at least say hi but nothing. No bald old waiter in site - so we ordered drinks at the bar and waited for the bar menu. Finally he shows up and says 'really no need to get a drink at the bar' in a SURLY tone. I actually apologized and figured we would have at least another drink/food and leave him a nice tip. He comes back with menus and says nothing - never comes back to take our order so we order food at the bar. We wait and wait while another 30 mins pass and bald old waiter comes with plates/napkins and still no word from him.

I wish this experience was better as I work in the neighborhood and have had many dinner functions there but NEVER EVER AGAIN!
