All four in our party were very pleased with their meals. Service was excellent as well. David's Bistro is our new favorite restaurant.

A recent visit reminded me I should go there more often! The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming, red walls and beautiful artwork. My friend and I opted for the chef's special - great value at $25 for appetizer and main course or $30 if you would like to include a dessert. Our appetizer was 2 variations of fish cakes -... More

Last minute reservation for one on a rainy night in an unfamiliar city and I was greeted and treated with top notch service. The owner (my server) was sincere in his recommendations and every morsel was divine. I enjoyed the market salad with parsnip crisps and balsamic vinaigrette, the fall of the bone braised lamb shank and a poached pear... More

I have been to David's many, many times over the years. My sister in law recommended it well over 10 years ago, and we haven't stopped going since. We've been on date night (hubby and I) I've also taken my son along with us. I've recommended it to anyone and everyone who asks! I even had my office Christmas dinner... More

Have attended many times this year for lunch and conversation with a group of friends. There has always been something on the menu selection to satisfy everyone. The wine selections all excellent. Quiet enough for conversation with the group of 6 to 8. Servers and owners always available and pleasant

Most people love this place ... I found the owner to be completely in our faces and pushy. The food was good but it didn't make up for the attitude that is exuded from this place.

Started with an appetizer of scallops which came with black beans. They were perfectly cooked and very yummy. Mains were Lake Erie pickerel and marlin. The pickerel was especially good. Marlin was decent but not spectacular. The sides for both were really, really good. Service was pretty good but a touch thin due the restaurant being full and only two... More

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
