I last reviewed this restaurant in January of 2012 after we had a chilly walk from the Hilton. This time our walk was much more pleasant as the weather was beautiful. (I have to admit though if walking at night you'd want to avoid Dundas and York Streets as much as possible). I had called earlier to see if I... More

Downtown London isn't one of the most attractive city centres I've visited so I wasn't sure what to expect when my Canadian cousins suggested this restaurant. It was a really good choice. Cosy, friendly, knowledgable servers and - above all - great food and good wine list. Music was a little intrusive but they turned the sound down when we... More

We read some great reviews of David's Bistro so decided to make a detour off Highway 401 for a relaxing dinner - we weren't disappointed. The menu has several classic French bistro items and a daily prix fixe which is a great deal ($26 for two courses and $30 for three). I went with the daily menu which started with... More

This is the 2nd time I have been to David's Bistro. Both times the meals were amazing. I had the daily special, mussels appetizer and Arctic Char as the main and my companion had the duck. The mussels were enough to share, the fish was excellent and the duck was moist and delicate flavour. I would highly recommend this restaurant.... More

While planning a little getaway to London & I ran across this restaurant in my research. Thought it looked interesting & would give it a go while there. We hit there for lunch and it was absolutely was wonderful! I had scallops with a wild mushroom risotto. Husband had filet of lake trout. Both meals were exquisite and ample.

We had dinner at David's tonight with friends we haven't seen in a long time and it was wonderful. We tried things we haven't had before....wild boar, red deer chop and amazing desserts. The food was delicious and the service great. The owner was very pleasant and asked where we are from etc. I do t know when we will... More

My sister moved to London four years ago and has always wanted to go to David's as I had recommended but it just never happened. Last evening we went. We were welcomed to the busy bistro with a sincere welcome. We were seated and very soon attended to. The owner certainly knows his clientele; he was charming, helpful, entertaining with... More

We went to David's Bistro for my husband's birthday back in June. I read some reviews before booking, and was very excited to try it. My husband had the Wild Boar and I had the Mahi Mahi special. According to my husband, the wild boar was one of the best meals he has ever had. It came with mashed potatoes... More

I have eaten here a few times in the last year and I always leave wondering why I don't come more often. The atmosphere and decor are perfect for a dinner with friends or a romantic evening out. The food is always incredibly fresh and delicious. On my recent visit I had the garden salad to start and the deer... More

You just can't go wrong at this restaurant. Two couples went recently to celebrate a birthday. David is the consummate host and his daughter who is a server is lovely. The last time we went a few weeks ago, there was a new young man serving us..he was extremely friendly and eager to please. We have had the prix fixe... More
