The food, service and ambience for this small and friendly restaurant were all excellent. The menu offered a good selection that was not overly ambitious--a good thing. The prices were a little high, but as we don't eat out a lot, we decided to splurge and were happy with our decision.

The service is personally handled by a lady and her husband who are going all the way to serve their customers in the most elegant manner. The seating while cozy is very classy along with the lighting. The food is mainly a French cuisine and the... More

Upon our arrival we were met by the owner who seated us and recommended a modestly priced wine off of his specials blackboard. After learning that we were there for a special occasion David... More

The food is superior; the staff are friendly and helpful, attentive and charming. This is the only restaurant I like to go to for special occasions and for when I "just feel like going there".

As this was our first visit to Davids Bistro there were no preconceptions other than it was rated top 5 in London.....small quaint atmosphere for our anniversary dinner...don't judge by its facade on Richmond st( wouldn't find it unless you know it's there)....eclectic menu....large wine list...variety of locally made beers...friendly service. Our meals were perfectly prepared...including entry and desserts...delicious....

I have eaten many times at David's Bistro. The intimate setting, limited seating's ensure a quiet but wonderful environment. The international/traditional menu includes many favorites. I generally have the lamb. The service is attentive. The food is excellent. A city like London goes through restaurants quickly. David's longevity is a testament to what they are trying to achieve in a... More

Every time I eat at David's it is a happy experience. It's one of those restaurants you never tire of going back to. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. they adjusted to my gluten-free needs effortlessly. I've been through most of the menu and haven't had a disappointment,
