“NYE Dinner”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

My husband, parents and I went here for NYE. I made a reservation a week before New Years and luckily was able to get a reservation. A few things we had that were amazing: oysters, crab cakes, filet mignon with blue cheese. Everything was superb. The only complaint would be that our snow peas weren't cleaned correctly and that the creme brulee didn't seem fresh.

“The Best Chef in Portland”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This triple AAA awarded restaurant was amazing quality for adults and kids a like. Small "European" size dishes that made you feel like you ate without feeling stuffed. Rare top notch olive oil dipped bread that kids loved!

“Worth walking to in a snowstorm”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

My wife and I walked across the Old Port to David's while in town for a few days and it was excellent. The portions were perfectly sized and the prices were reasonable for the quality. Our highlights were the tuna tartar, exotic mushroom ravioli, and two tasty desserts. The menu and presentation says fine dining, but the prices and atmosphere are as comfortable as any corner restaurant. The menu also has items like several pizzas, steak, and a burger for the less adventurous.

Had a great anniversary dinner here on a recent trip. Wonderful cocktail selection, service was great and the food was creative and delicious. We look forward to trying the new tasting menu restaurant section on our next visit.

“Always a hit!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We haven't been to David's for about six months. Decided we wanted to have dinner somewhere familiar and we were not disappointed! I had the scallops encrusted in parmesan cheese. Delicious and a very size portion comparatively! Drinks were great and we indulged in a raspberry white chocolate mousse with thin vanilla wafers that was perfect for two!! Can't wait to go back to somewhere you can always count on to have a great regular menu plus a few great specials!
