“Difficult choice--music, or food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

We were a few minutes early and were seated in the lounge. The musician Aaron Bing (soprano sax) was so good that, once our table was ready, we did not want to leave. So, they set us up at a table in the lounge so we could continue to enjoy the fantastic music, and then, we enjoyed the fantastic food. We had the seafood risotto. I expected a little seafood mixed into some risotto--but what we got was a fantastic assortment of seafood placed around a serving of risotto. The Giant prawn, scallops, and shrimp were absolutely the best we had in the area, and the risotto was extremely tasty. This place is so very plain on the outside, but the inside is very well done, service is good and food cannot be beat. If you want to have a truly special evening of music and food, this is place.

“Great food, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

A little off the main drag, David's was the most recommended place on Amelia Island for a great meal. I haven't sampled everything the island has to offer but I would say that David's was definitely a hit and I would go back. They have a large back room for groups and while you have to walk through the dinning room to use the restrooms, It was still a great place.

“What a Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

The steaks we had were some of the best we have had. Make sure you are hungry because the portions are generous. Very good service. It would be wise to make reservations, the restaurant was very busy on a Monday night.

“David's a wonderful experience in Fernandina Beach !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Whenever we are visiting one of our favorite beach towns, Fernandina Beach, we love the ambiance and the food of David's restaurant. A somewhat eclectic mix of New Orleans or NYC jazz lounge with a bit of South "beach" flair, the mood is set with sometimes live jazz music in the bar area. And the food has never disappointed. From the oysters rock to the filet oscar, all the fresh fish, and even my favorite the Asian duck, there's never lacking for a wide variety of choices. I like the added experience of the bread served in unique ways, the pallet cleansing sorbet, everything to provide a very upscale fine dining experience. We will always return to David's whether staying or passing through town. Deb and Myrta are very special hosts.
