We took our friends to celebrate a work promotion. As soon as we sat down the waiter was pushing the purchase of wine, asking us question after question when we just wanted to enjoy some conversation. He was pushing us towards the higher end bottles, which we don't mind buying, but not when we feel like someone is making us.... More

We are not from Boston and as such our meals are either hit or miss. Davios was a hit. We will definitely return there. We had steak ,pasta, one drink each, and dessert. Our bill was about $100 for two. Lovely decor, attentive staff and a stylish clientele made for a nice evening. Do not hesitate to eat here.

A group meal booked for 9 international and domestic travellers. This is not a cheap restaurant, so one you would go to for a special occasion. We had excellent attentive and prompt service, food was very good, wine selection extensive,and every member of the group commented on the exceptional quantity. So why only 4 stars - we were tucked away... More

I had the pasta and shrimp - the prawns were great, the past al dente and the chilli sauce superb with no room for dessert. A little upmarket and we had a bottle of wine, but when it arrived it was half sized.. at 30 dollars.. so not cheap, but special !

It was a big birthday for me so my expectations were high. The restaurant was noisier than I thought it would be. I asked for a table near the window when I put in my reservation which I received. My son is gluten intolerant and he loved the rolls they gave him. Great martinis. I enjoyed the lobster I ordered... More

I was in between menus - too late for lunch & too early for dinner - but I was also in between trains so I stayed for the Bar Menu. Plenty on offer - starters, snacks, a salad, pizzas & a burger. I opted for the Bruschetta with Burrata, Prosciutto & Balsamic. It was gorgeous, the balsamic delicious. I almost... More

Three of us had an enjoyable dinner with friendly, professional waiter (Adam) The three menu selections were all great: flank steak perfectly cooked, scallops, and swordfish. These selections came with vegetables and sauces. We shared a very good Caesar salad and a lava cake for dessert. Three glasses of wine plus a non-alcoholic beverage. Bill w/o tip was $188.

A wonderful dinner paired with smiling helpful staff. You had me at the delivery of the warm popovers. We each had 2 they were so good. My spouse said he ate the best filet he has ever tasted, cooked to perfection. My halibut was also cooked well but lacked appropriate seasoning and the others had specials of the evening that...

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
