Our server was very pleasant and helpful. The food was tasty and the wine was delicious. However, I never enjoy having my main course delivered while still eating my appetizer/salad. The real problem was when my husband had taken his last bite of dessert and the owner came over and said, "I need this table. I told you that on... More

I wouldn't rate this place #1, but definitively top 5. Cute small location, with great food and service. Awesome wine menu and there are always specials. Mussels and the Pickeral were okay, nothing crazy good. We'll be back.

I took a colleague to lunch at David's Bistro as I had heard that it was a decent little place. I must admit that upon entering, it has a very pleasant, intimate atmosphere and we were greeted promptly and in a very welcoming manner. Unfortunately, the waitress just seemed off, like she'd rather have been somewhere else and wasn't as... More

Beef,fish,chicken or try game choices. Menu changes weekly including numerous wines for every palette. Prix fixe choices make this stop affordable and still top notch bistro fare. Had the crusted wild boar preceded by their house Caesar salad, and was cautioned that plate licking was not appropriate. If you like stepping out of your comfort zone, give David's Bistro a...

We have eaten at David's several times over the years. It is always excellent. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The fixed price menu is our favourite. Five stars for London's best restaurant.

Great food and wonderful knowledge of wine. We always go for the Trust Me' menu where you leave your choice to the chef.....great idea so it's a great surprise - each guest can have this. The wine pairing is excellent, very knowledgeable about wines. A little on the pricy side but for a special occasion well worth it.

A small place packed with delicious food. Reservation a must. We went on a Tuesday evening and the place was full. Luckily we had a reservation. Will come back for sure!

They make you feel very welcome as soon as you walk through the door. I especially like their fixed price specials, as I tend to have a difficult time choosing from a full menu.
