We recently dined here with friends to celebrate our wedding anniversaries. We were fortunate enough to have David himself serve our table. If you enjoy impeccable service and simply amazing food, this is “the” place to go. David was incredibly helpful with the menu and very keen to ensure we had the best dining experience possible without being made to... More

David's is a friendly, professional and reasonable dining experience. The food is fresh, tasty, prepared with pride & care and served with enthusiasm. The wine list is well chosen and unique to the area. I eat there regularly because it is ALWAYS good. I highly recommend David's.

The place was very quiet and not many people there. They did get busier. The service and food was good. I had the fish and fries. My friend had chicken and salad.

I do not find it often that I come across unique menu choices. Certainly not as tantalizing as the one offered at David's Bistro. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending my friends and family to this restaurant. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. David the owner was actually working the floor. Which goes to show how personal... More

We were there with our daughter who is studying in London for an early dinner. Reservations are absolutely recommended because the restaurant was completely full by 6:30. Service, food choice and food were excellent. Wine list was extensive and good value. Food options were unique and all tasty. We each had a different appetizer and a different main and shared...

Eating at David's is always a treat; a culinary feast. I have eaten there many times and it's always as if it were the first. David himself is a great host making sure you enjoy your stay at the bistro not just your eating there. Sophisticated dishes with simple and always fresh produce. Whether you go for seafood (mussels) or... More

My girlfriends and I pick a restaurant to go to every month. Not knowing much about David's before we went, we were pleasantly surprised by how accommodating they were with the menu. Staff is top-notch and the wine AND food are delish.

I can't say enough good things about the delightful evening that we had at David's Bistro. Everything was perfect, absolutely perfect. Our server seemed a lot like Vanessa Redgrave in the movie "Letters to Juliet", flitting back and forth from the bar to the table to the kitchen to the table, effortlessly, gracefully and efficiently. Perfect filet with potatoes and... More
