We love going to David's. He greets you with with warmth and genuinely Thanks you for coming in. The menu options always present a challenge of choosing which one of the many amazing dishes to have tonight.
David himself will make rounds and visit each table to see how your evening is going and make recommendations if you like. We had a wonderful wine, and he told us it isn't available at local stores, but the gave us a note with the wine and vintage along with his supplier's contact information so we could get some for ourselves if we wanted to.
Amazing quality and these personal touches make each visit special in itself

Very cozy setting on Richmond Row close to Theatre London. Limited seating created an intimate feel with warm lighting and very red decor. Warmly greeted and seated with by a friendly host but did wait for our server to begin our experience who apologize and got things started. Varied menu with excellent selection offering something for every taste and a very extensive wine selection, available by bottle or glass. We selected the trout and duck entrees and were not disappointed. I highly recommend the "sticky toffee pudding" if available, it was heavenly!. We will return and have already suggested it family and friends.

Interesting menu and a nice prix fixe alternative to the a la carte choices. The food was very good and even though the restaurant was extremely busy, the service was prompt. Would definitely go back again. The restaurant is quite small and reservations would probably be a good idea.

Thought this would be a great place to go with tripadvisors review in mind. I was very disappointed. We went as a party group with reservations. We had to wait an hour and a half from the time we walked in until the time we got our meals. This isn't acceptable. I realize the price you pay is the price you pay according to the restaurant.
But we didn't enjoy our meals. We should have said something at the time. But we were just glad to eat our meals and continue on with our evening. I was visiting London and this is the second restaurant on Richmond Row that I have not enjoyed. And I don't ask for much. Won't be back here again.

My wife and I recently paid a return visit to David's with another couple and once again we had a great meal. We keep trying other restaurants in London but David's has become our first choice for a completely satisfying dining experience. Our only complaint is that we have to make reservations well in advance for a weekend visit, because the restaurant is often fully booked.
