David's is a London restaurant icon. David knows how to run a restaurant in all aspects. There's no better restaurant in London as long as you enjoy fine dining. The prices are reasonable. The food is fresh and local ( except the seafood and ocean fish). It is perfect for a special dinner such as birthdays and anniversaries. If you... More

Excellent every visit The service and the care from David and Natalie and the staff are exceptional. The menu is always interesting and appeals to everyone's palate. The wine list is one of the best in the city.

Highly recommended for any occasion. Make a reservation as its a popular spot! A comfortable atmosphere and superb food. What we appreciated above all was that we were lucky enough to be served by David. The very personable and professional owner who underlines what great service is all about. A fantastic evening. Thank you

Yet another great evening at David's! It was enhanced by having the special musical feast in support of the musicians from 4 members of the cello section of the former Orchestra London who are still performing as #weplayon & being supported by events like this! The food overall was truly outstanding - & the Lamb Rack amazing! Cooked to perfection!... More

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.
