My son took us there a few months ago for dinner and I was very happy with this restaurant that I took some friend out again for dinner. In addition to the regular menu, there are daily specials, fix price special and the un-advertised trust me special. Meals are generally between $20 to 30... read more

The restaurant is relatively small and well appointed. David was in the restaurant while we were there and taook direct interest in how everything was going. I highly recommend this restaurant for any... More

My husband and I, along with another couple, went to David's Bistro last night for the first time and this restaurant has now become one of our new favourites! My husband ordered the Wild Boar dish (one of the specials of the night, not on the regular menu) and this dish included, by far, the best tasting and tenderest piece... More

We have been frequenting David's for over six years. We highly recommend this as a wonderful place to eat if you are looking for fine dining while in London. The menu is diverse and ranges from meats to fish to vegetarian - all exquisitely done. The wine list is hand selected by David and the prices are excellent -minimal markup... More

Went on recommendations based on Trip Advisor (of course) and was not disappointed! We didn't have a reservation but arrived at 8pm and luckily a table was free. Prices were very reasonable, and excellent selection of wine. Our server was very helpful with suggestions and the food delicious! I can't say anything negative about the experience, it was wonderful. If... More

Four of us went to David's, a busy bistro in downtown London, for dinner. We were all very pleased with the atmosphere, the service and especially the food. The filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes and wild mushroom ragu was delicious and a bargain for the quality at $30.00. A friend had the osso bucco with risotto and said it... More
