We learned our lesson (Londoners like to dine early so reserve a spot if you want to dine before 9 pm) and arrived for first visit to David's. The welcome was friendly, service was prompt - and our request for gluten-free dining was easily accommodated. The food was first-rate, lovely attention to detail. Every mouthful was savoured. We enjoyed appetizers,... More

Every time I eat at David's I'm blown-away by the quality of food - and amazing service! Very professional service - I've had several business lunches, but lots of laughs as well.

We count on trip adviser reviews to choose our restaurants and they were right on about this establishment! Service was attentive and professional, food was wonderful with good portions, restaurant itself was cozy but not too noisy. Natalie attended to us herself, made some great food and wine suggestions. David chatted with us several times as well. Definitely a return... More

David's is just lovely. The food is reliably good, the service is top-notch, and the wine list is well thought out and varies regularly. Admittedly, it is a pricey place, but the quality of the food, the ambiance and the service make it well worth the cost.

The only issue with David's is simple, there is just way too many amazing things to choose from. The food is exceptional, service is super professional and friendly. If you want to impress foodie friends this is the place to take them. I had the cassoulet the other day and it was excellent. My friend had the veal burger and... More

An impromptu business meeting stretched into dinner at David's. Turned out to be another great find. Service was exemplatory, salmon cooked in a coconut cream sauce with vermicelli noodles was delicious other notable dishes includes duck confit and crusted sea bass. All enjoyed these wonderfully prepared dishes.

David is an institution. His personal attention to guests made it a truly enjoyable evening. I had the chicken with bacon. It was succulent and tender, unfortunately two other guests had the Mahi which was not seasoned. The desserts were divine. It was busy and David and team did a great job keeping the orders flowing. We made it to... More

This is our favourite restaurant in London. We have eaten here many times over a number of years and love the food, the presentation , David's knowledge of wine, and the service. It is a cozy place and a bit of France in the New World. In particular we love the prix fixe option available for two courses or three.... More
