Davenport Press was excellent. This was our first visit and it was for my son’s birthday. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. There were 8 of us including two young children. We were not rushed and our waiter was very helpful both in explaining the various dishes and dealing with the young children. We all had a great time and plan to visit again.

Food was good, except onion soup had no flavor. It looked like a big bowl, but the inside of the bowl was slanted in and made the inside a little smaller than it looked. Mashed potatoes ??? Seemed very loose, out of a Package?? Portions good, vegetables were a bit overloaded. Otherwise, a very nice place to eat.

The service and food was excellent but what was even better was the personalized call I received from the owner the day before to confirm my reservation.

Bad service bad food no atmosphere! Hot and cold appetizers came out all at the same time so we ate lukewarm soup crab cakes and mussels! House salad basically ripped up iceberg lettuce and unappetizing vegetables, crab cakes were very dry and over fried seafood bisque had pieces of shrimp and imitation crab meat?! and mussels were just okay at best. Husbands “special “ fish was heavily breaded and pan fried so he could not tell what fish it was, my steak fillet was really bad cut of meat ,dry unseasoned and overdone the mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes from the box! My sons linguine with shrimp “scampi “ was almost inedible ; shrimp were not fresh and had a taste of chlorine ? just terrible and he complained about stomach discomfort that same night! I made a mistake of not speaking to the manager about the whole experience but we just wanted to get out of there ASAP

Food was excellent and portions were large. It took way too long for our waitress to ask if we wanted coffee or dessert and by that time we just wanted to go. Then it took another 15 minutes for the check to come once we asked for it. But overall we enjoyed dinner and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

We went for lunch on Saturday. There were not that many people there. The staff was attentive and cordial. The food was delicious and the drinks were well made. My husband who used to work in restaurants said that if the drinks are well made, then you know the restaurant will deliver high quality on everything. This was certainly true for us.

Celebrated with friends from out of state and they absolutely loved this restaurant. Beautiful inside and was welcomed as soon as we arrived. Arrived a tad early but were seated with no delay. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp with mashed potatoes and veg and it was delicious. My husband ordered the the loin of pork and he was thrilled that he could get it spicey as he loves this type of food. Everyone else was very pleased with their menu selection. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

This was our 3rd time eating at The Davenport Press and each time we have been extremely satisfied with our experience. Prior to COVID, we ate in many restaurants. I found this gem and we love it! Great food, great service and reasonable prices that include vegetables, potato, and bread at no extra cost.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this place. The people are so warm and friendly, it feels like family when we go. The food is absolutely amazing, I have been trying different entrees to try them all. The Pistachio crusted halibut was delicious, we always get the grilled octopus for an appetizer. Drinks and the desserts are oh so awesome!

As always the service was top shelf! The owner always stops by to make sure we are happy and being cared for. The kitchen is always willing to modify meals if requested. We wanted to change the veal for chicken in the veal Mediterranean and NO PROBLEM. I requested a salad that was not on the special board but I have had on a previous visit and NO PROBLEM.

There is something for everyone and the recent remodeling is great, clean, interesting and refreshing!
