A new taste of the island. Great setting with lounge area and live music. Visited twice in the same weekend.

The service is excellent, the food is delicious and the decor is right on. We eat at David's every time we visit Amelia Island.

We had dinner for two here during our stay on Amelia Island and found this restaurant wonderful in every respect. The decor is contemporary, interesting, spacious and well done. A real breath of fresh air after spending the day in Amelia's old eclectic architectural treasures. The staff was attentive and fun. The wine list was presented on an iPad which was a fun way to view and read about wines. The menu was imaginative and our food was well prepared and delicious. No greasy spoon or old southern menu here. We could have been eating in Sonoma. We opted for seafood dishes and weren't disappointed. Even the desserts (which we rarely indulge in) were excellent. We loved this place and will definitely return.

We had such an amazing enjoyable date night here! Service and food was top notch! Beautiful inside. Loved the special touch of chocolate covered strawberries at the end that came with our bill.

My husband and I went to dinner on Saturday night and had a wonderful evening out. We arrived early and waited at the bar and enjoyed a cocktail from the drink menu. We both ordered Martini's and they were wonderful. The music was beautiful and loud enough to hear but did not impede our conversation. Our table was ready on time and we had an appetizer and shared a spinach salad, which was split for us in the kitchen. We loved the wine list and using the iPad was fun! Our server was helpful and knowledgeable about both the wine list and the menu. I ordered the Filet Oscar off the menu and my husband ordered a fish special, both were excellent. This was one of the best meals we have had in Fernandina/Amelia. I can’t wait to go back.
