David is always attentive to every little detail. Every aspect of every meal I've had here has been outstanding. I don't usually trust suggestions for wine, but here I request it. And it's always perfect! Hands down the best restaurant in London. Will be back, again and again...

Great food and nice atmosphere. The gentleman who greeted and looked after us (owner?) was very friendly and attentive. Had a very nice evening there with overseas visitors and I would recommend this place to anyone. One of my favourites, based on my one visit.

Cozy, distinctive, delicious - everything about this place impresses. The food is top-notch and the price is very reasonable for what you get (get the price fixe menu and enjoy 3 courses for $30!).

Great food. Extensive and reasonably priced wine list. Menu is all your tried and true French bistro classics prepared perfectly with unpretentious but attentive service. Never had a bad meal here. My #1 in London. Reservations recommended as it isn't a huge place.

Visited David's for our first time in October. It rated it very high on Trip advisor so thought it was worth a try. Quick summary, food was ok, atmosphere was good, wine selection was great and service was good. The feeling we were left with is they have a following and regulars, most of which were older with food offerings... More

We dined on an early Sunday evening in November, while travelling through London. The atmosphere was welcoming, and warm. Sweet bread and Chevre soufflé were outstanding apps. The black cod and provencal seafood stew were fresh and flavourful. Service was outstanding. If given the opportunity, we would definitely return. Really nice dining experience.

The food was lovely; the service was attentive and smooth. We enjoyed our appetizers, the mahi-mahi special and the fabulous chocolate desserts. My husband was smitten with the wine that David suggested and said he would like to return to try several other items on the menu. We were surprised that the restaurant was so busy on a Monday evening... More

This is a rightfully popular restaurant with a good buzz. Intimate, relaxed, friendly & cosy atmosphere. Imaginative menu nicely presented. Delicious food. Clean washrooms. Good wine list. Excellent service. Owner, his daughter & staff all take pride in ensuring their patrons enjoy their meal. Reservations strongly recommended.

It's always reassuring to visit a restaurant in mid-week and find it full of relaxed diners who have been warmly welcomed by an owner who is always ready for a good conversation and knows that his chef is dependable and efficient. For a couple celebrating their 48th wedding anniversary it is reassuring that so many of the diners look young... More

My husband and I recently dined at David's Bistro with another couple. I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I have ever had and everyone else thoroughly enjoyed their meals as well. David is a very charming host and, of course, very knowledgeable about the food and the wine offered. I had the smoked pork prime... More
