David's is a sure bet for a nice evening out. A little on the expensive side. But one goes there for quality not quantity. I had 4 large seared scallops over sauerkraut for $36. He didn't have a decent chardonnay but I hear chard is so out of style these days. Went with friends but would not return on my... More

Romance or for an intimate family gathering, David's bistro is the best! Everything from the food, service and vibe of the restaurant is amazing! Great wine list too.

Dinner for 2: After a strong welcoming handshake from David himself, the hostess to our jackets and promptly seated us at out reserved table at the back. (always call ahead, it's a cosy, popular place after all) After a spot on recommendation of a lovely California zinfandel, which the waiter knew the history of the vineyard, how the wine was...

Very much in tune with getting the "theatre crowd" fed and on their way in time without a feeling of rushing. Warning however this is a small restaurant and they squeeze the tables a bit too close for my comfort.

We're great fans of David's -- the food is exceptional and it is a failsafe place to take any guest from out of town to properly host them in our city. David and his team work hard to make everything just right -- from recommending a special wine pairing to preparing something for you that isn't even on the menu... More

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.

Had the pleasure of visiting David's Bistro on Richmond Street. It was a trip that I enjoyed immensely and will repeat. I had their Split Pea Soup and a 6 oz. New York Steak. The whole meal and time were great. The service was attentive--the food was served in a timely manner at the right temperature for me-- the bar... More

This is a place for real fine dining. It has high class in everything. 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

We choose David's for a farewell dinner with my brother and his girlfriend before they returned to their home on the other side of the world. 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
