A little gem in Fernandina Beach

Very unassuming on the outside but extremely elegant on the inside. David's service was very good. They didn't rush us at all. The courses were nicely paced. We ordered the David's esgargot which were spectacular. Iceberg Wedge and caesars both very good. For entrees the table ordered the... read more

I have been three times to David's and love it. The service is always good and the food just plain enjoyable. My spouse and I shared an escargot appetizer, very hot and garlicky, and it was pretty darn good. (My standard is a hole-in-the-wall pizza place on St. Barts.) I then had a half portion spinach salad with feta, dried... More

We just got back from a lovely dinner at David's in Fernandina. My husband told them it was my birthday dinner, and they added nice little touches to make it a special occasion - a card, signed by the staff, an extra dessert. I had a glass of pinot noir from the wine list that was excellent. I also had... More

The martinis are perfect! Try a few because you can't go wrong. We shared the NY Strip and although good, it was a little chewy towards the end. The bread is amazing and the presentation is an added bonus. Live music while we were there, Monica da Silva blew our socks off. Great place.

The cozy bar area is my favorite place to meet friends after work for a glass of wine and a couple of apertizers, which MON-THUR are half priced...crab cakes are delicious and so is the beef wellington... martinis are also half priced, so fun to try a new variety. The dining area always seems to have a lot of activity,... More

My wife and I found ourselves wandering around downtown without a dinner reservation. David's got us a table in the time it took us to walk the extra 2 blocks to the restaurant. It's and upscale place that we were both a bit under-dressed for, but that didn't stop them from providing fantastic service. The server knew the wine list... More

I came here for a late Valentines dinner with my husband and chose this place based on all the great things i hear about them. I did come in here with high expectations and they exceeded them! Everything was perfect from the food,drinks,staff and management. I look farward to doing it again soon. Thank you all so much.

This was our second visit to David's and it was just as good as the first time. Service is excellent. The wine list is extensive, our only disappointment is they still only offer sparling wine in splits or by the bottle. Our drinks came quickly and there was no pressure to order right away. A nice leisurely beginning. We both... More
