“A must visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

After all the wonderful times I have visited David's, I am finally writing a review. Most of the time I dine in the bar with Tristan- such a great bartender and always greets you with a smile. Tonight we started with drinks- dirty martini for me and strawberries and cream martini for my friend- and allowed ourselves to decompress on their comfy couches in the lounge. We moved to a booth for dinner and started out with the escargot and seafood ravioli - both scrumptious! The staff is always a favorite for me- Laura and Blane were taking care of us tonight- they always make you feel comfortable and well attended to. For entrees I had the Filet Oscar - filet topped with crab and hollandaise- and the steak as always was perfectly prepared. We finished with the chocolate fondue dessert special! What a treat! I just can't emphasize enough how dining at David's is a true experience- and I can't wait to go back!

“Great private room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

We had a group of 12. We reserved the private room where the decor is like sitting in a wine cellar - very nice.
The food quality is quite good especially steaks.
The service was excellent.

“Finally, dining, not just eating!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

I didn't believe a restaurant like this still existed outside of New York or Paris, but here it is right here in Fernandina! A true fine dining experience: amazing décor and ambiance, service which seems to be straight from the elegance and seamlessness of the past, and cuisine that I rate in the platonic category of gastronomical excellence.

“A gem in Fernandina Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

Fernandina has a number of excellent restaurants but David's is by far one of the best. You would not imagine the interior atmosphere based upon the exterior - the exterior is not unpleasant, it is just brick, but inside it is beautifully lit and well-appointed. David's has a cute little bar and some imaginative wines by the glass, as well as a creative and varied wine list. The food is divine - I had the Chilean sea bass and it was crispy on the outside, moist and flaky inside, over perfect mashed potatoes. Their desserts are also divine. You will not go wrong eating here!

“Great food! Excellent service!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Wonderful meal. Fully priced....but totally worth it!! The only downer was the music. One artist, a Kenny G wannabe, for the entire evening. It basically ruined an otherwise perfect meal. Too bad, music is an important contributor to the ambience and deserves more consideration.
