Went for Restaurant Week, I had the onion soup, as my appetizer which I felt was

outstanding. The rest of the meal was good but not amazing. Worth the $25? Yes, but not

a meal that I couldn’t get anywhere else. During restaurant week I expect food that I

would rave to my friends about. The service was great, but disappointed in the food.

A friend was visiting from out of state and Davio’s seemed like a good choice for dinner before he went home. The interior was nice and noise level not too high, so we enjoyed our conversation. I ordered the roasted chicken, my girlfriend the skirt steak, and my friend the salmon with eggplant. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was excellent.

Davio's is a fantastic restaurant that is worth the price. The service and food are excellent. My only comment is the tables are too crowded and as well as too close together. It makes it difficult to fit food with all the items already there. It is also quite difficult to move between tables if needing to use the restroom - the seating is too crowded. Our events held at Davio's are usually large enough that we are offered a private room which makes our experience even better.

Bday celebration. Server, Tyler was great.
All food was as always, wonderful.
Noise level was horrendous. We were party of 4 and table next to us was party of 8 loud folks.
When they howled and laughed you couldn’t hear yourself talking. They finally finished before we had dessert. I think the noise level there on a Sat pm is worse than I would expect.

Came with family for lunch for a 6 year old’s birthday. We had a great time. The background music was just lively enough without being invasive, allows for conversation and at the same time kid friendly. The kids menu was an unbelievable value for the quality and food portion, which was too huge for us. Our waiter was wonderful, efficient - presents himself as needed and left us alone when we needed the space - and even made the effort of engaging with the kids and was kind to them.

I’ve had dinner at this same location with a friend before. The service and ambiance at that dinner was also excellent.

We intend to return and try the rest of the menu.

Well I never ever send reviews, but this time is different. Having read "Its all about the Guest" I wanted to experience Davio's again. I was so impressed with the book that I had all of my managers ready my summary of the book and then read the book (I own a gourmet market in CT, but live in Hingham, MA). I then brought 3 managers to dinner in Braintree.
I guess my expectations were toward perfection and I realize nothing is perfect.
Some comments:
> I ordered a martini with olives and it came to the table with limes
> My managers said that the experience was average when they expected excellence
> The service was good, not excellent
> The food was very good, not excellent
> We spent around $500.00 and felt the value did not exceed the cost
Thanks,
Rich Gallivan

Waitress was very knowledgeable and professional. My husband asked for a medium rare filet steak but his was delivered medium well. We sent it back and it was redelivered fairly promptly as ordered. Overpriced a bit. Excellent service!

Stick to the steak. Decided to try Davio’s take on a shrimp scampi, it was fine, but nothing special and certainly not worth the cost. next time I’ll go back to the short ribs. Crab cake was excellent. Easy to get a table. Good experience

There was no wait when we arrived.
Our server was knowledgeable, pleasant, friendly, remembered dinner was for a special occasion. Menu offers many selections and there were additional specials. Everyone in our party of eight enjoyed their dinner. Steaks were cooked slightly more than expected.

On a recent visit to MA from Texas, we returned to our favorite Davio's and it never disappoints. Our party of 4 enjoyed the shrimp cocktail appetizer (jumbo sized and chilled). The filet mignon and Bone In Ribeye were cooked to perfection (medium), tender and tasty. The desserts are consistently excellent. The ladies shared the canolis whereas the guys shared a creme brulee. There is a Davio's opening in the The Colony, TX sometime this spring. We are so excited and will definitely be patronizing their first Texas location.

Davio’s has definitely become my favorite place to dine out in. My boyfriend Alex and I have become regulars and the wait staff know us and treat us so nicely. Even the hostesses know where we like to sit and go way above and beyond to treat us like family. The food is freaking amazing. I had the pork chop with polenta last night for the first time and it was simply the best meal I’ve had out since the last time we were at Davio’s. Alex and I are foodies and eat out once a week and honestly there’s no comparison. I’ve been to Moo, Ruth Chris, Butcher Shop, Boston Chops and Capitol Grille and while they all have great meals I am never disappointed by anything I’ve tried at Davio’s. Sincerely thank you to Christine who was our waitress last night and to everyone else for continuing to make this place our favorite place to dine out. 👍🏾❤️😋
