Lobster night!

Another great meal - lobster flown in from the east coast! Absolutely delicious! David's never fails to meet the highest expectations for food - both taste and presentation! Thanks again David (and Elvis the Chef!) for another memorable food experience!

We have been at David's bistro many times. It is one of our favorite places to enjoy a special dinner as it has food did you do not find in most places such as Wildboar which we love. We definitely recommend this high class restaurant if you enjoy specialty food, great atmosphere and service!

I went for dinner with one of my colleagues after a long week of work away from home. Everything we had was delicious. The smoked salmon with goat cheese and then the veal cooked to perfection. The service was also outstanding. Don't forget to stop by if you are in town

Try the prix fixed menu or mystery dinner! They will cook to your tastes (ie vegetarian, chicken, red meat or a complete surprise!).

I must say that the food was spectacular and the service quite extraordinary. David was a always available; and I was impressed. At my favourite restaurant I rarely see the owner. I'll be... More

Even the things I really don't enjoy were delicious. The service was spot on. The many reviews that claim this is the best restaurant in London may not be wrong. Of course we all have different tastes, but there is no denying an exceptional dinner. There are lots of great reviews to read about more details. Let me just say... More

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.
