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

What a great evening! We recently attended David's Bistro for their annual Lobster Dinner! As always, the food was superb with the potato, corn, & leek chowder topped with a slightly spicy smoked salmon topping the list - it was absolutely heavenly! The entire meal was served with attentiveness & great interaction- it truly was a memorable evening. I love... More

We went to David's to celebrate our engagement from earlier in the day. The staff was courteous and the food was delicious. They could tell something had happened because my fiancé couldn't stop smiling. We told them we just got engaged and you tell that they actually cared and we're so happy for us. It really made the day feel... More

Have been to David's twice now over the past few months - on the first occasion ordered from the prix-fixe menu and unfortunately had to leave before my dessert arrived in order to make it to another event. On that occasion the food was excellent - a wonderful salad to start, followed by a daily chicken concoction of some kind... More

I chose the pre-fix 3 course meal and really enjoyed the food. The crab cakes appetizer is the best I've had in a while and the dark chocolate and almond cake was a great finish. We've been coming to David's for over 5 years and have always found a broad range of menu options with ingredients I wouldn't know how... More

We booked here based on trip advisor which has never failed me yet and it didn't on the night we visited. We were celebrating our daughters graduation from Western and our group included her aunt from the Uk. We were a little late for our reservation after an unexpected emergency but we had given warning and were welcomed anyway. The... More
