Great food & so much more!David's has an interesting menu with lots of your favorites that are consistently high quality and delicious. Great for a quick lunch. Very affordable at lunch time and fast enough that you can get in and out in an hour if you make reservations in advance. Attentive staff and a nice atmosphere.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Superb DinnerWe eat at almost every restaurant in Portland, and try to keep it spontaneous. David's is a great execution of the American Bistro, and we enjoyed our dinner and the great service. I'll go back when looking for a smaller, classy location for an intimate meal with a small group.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. We went forExcellent food. We went for Mother's Day.

Absolutely delicious, fairly priced, wonderfully yummy food.
Their Gin Blossom cocktail hit the spot, too!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Dinner at David'sWe love David's and went there most recently to celebrate my fiance's birthday. Everything was very good with the exception of the filet that both my fiance and I ordered. We have ordered this many times here and it has always been divine, but this time it was tough and not up to par. That is my only complaint as everything else was near perfect.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our experienceWe really enjoyed our experience at this restaurant. The prices were reasonable for the quality of food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of energy!This is a perfect spot for a night of fun and lively conversation!

David's more than fit the bill.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were visiting PortlandWe were visiting Portland for business and reviewed the places and menus on Opentanle.
We picked David's and were very pleased. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Good, If A Bit SmokyOne of the things I love about David's is that it's consistently and predictably decent; I've never been to David's when things haven't been up to par, and the menu is always the same, with the addition of specials for some variety. The kitchen's willing to substitute!I'm always confident about the sort of time I'll have when dining there, and the staff is always friendly and attentive. On this occasion I had requested a table on the "window side" of the restaurant and the staff was able to grant that on a Saturday night, nice! The restaurant was smoky because of the open area kitchen, though, which includes (I believe) a brick oven, which meant our clothing smelled like cooked meat all night, even after many hours of being out and about.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location on the square.Great location on the square. Tables available inside and out. Haddock dinner special was wonderful. Warm welcome and attentive staff. Be sure to make reservations as the restaurant is not large and is quite popular. Menu not extensive but has a nice variety of entrees to choose from. Prices reasonable and the portions were just right. Definitely worth a trip.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the seafood ravioliWe had the seafood ravioli and the crusted salmon, both of which were perfect. The service was excellent. However the noise level was not conducive to intimate conversation . We did have an early reservation, on a Friday night, and perhaps another day or time would be a better choice. Overall a great experience.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPhoenixTravelerAnything from amazing pizza to a pepper crusted filet, this restaurant has EVERYTHING. It's always been amazingly consistent. We travel from Phoenix to Maine nearly every week and have been there 3 weeks out of the past 4 now. Yes, it's that good. And you're going to love the garlic and parmesan dusted rolls. Holy cow I could feast on those alone!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOne if our favorites in Portland!One if our favorites in Portland! In the top tier of all if the best restaurant in the City. Fabulous flavors perfectly executed. Great dining!!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebration DestinationDavid's Restaurant has become our go to destination when celebrating something very special. The ambiance is intimate; the staff is impressively attentive; the menu is delightfully diverse; the atmosphere is unhurried and leisurely. Our dinners were prepared to perfection, though the presentation could have been a little more creative. Dessert was not only delicious but beautifully presented, with Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary written on our plates in beautiful script done in chocolate.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGarlic knots are great. FiletGarlic knots are great. Filet was outstanding. Potstickers were an unexpected great find.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I once again hadMy wife and I once again had excellent dinners at David's, prior to a Portland Symphony Orhcestra concert. (The restaurant is located at Monument Square, a 5-minutes walk to Merrill Auditorium.) We were cordially and competently treated by an experienced, informed server; we recognized her from earlier visits to David's and were flattered that she recognized us as well I had an unusual combination of excellent clam chowder and "meat pizza." My wife enjoyed her oysters, small salad, and mussels. She regularly orders a tuna offering at David's, but we wished to depart by 6:15, in time for a pre-concert lecture. (We often see fellow PSO subscribers at David's, and observe that by 6:30 on any night all of the tables have seated diners.)4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodWe have been to David's several times and have found it to be consistently good. You can always feel secure that your friends will like it, as ours did.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy an evening atAlways enjoy an evening at David's. Hope to try Opus 10 soon.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been trying to go hereI have been trying to go here for a while but on an event night at the Merrill Auditorium, reservations are needed. All the staff who served us were friendly and efficient. The bread basket was delicious - hot and fresh with a tasty olive oil blend of herbs and cheeses. I had the lobster ravioli which was loaded with whole shrimp and scallops with chunks of lobster in and over the pasta. The sherry cream sauce was yummy. My sister got the mixed grill - sirloin, shrimp and scallops on a skewer, garlic mashed potatoes and snap peas. Gorgeous presentation and flavorful. Everything was cooked perfectly. The meals were reasonably priced for the wonderful food. Definitely a place I would go to again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to expectations fromLived up to expectations from open table reviews. Food was great and was fairly priced. Great range on the menu--out party had everything from steal to scallops to a burger to their special bruschetta. It was all perfect--scallops might have been a bit underdone, but let it slide. If absolutely come back.
This was a special occasion for us visiting portland and we chose David's. would do it again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWill return without a doubtReally had a great time with great food and the service was outstanding.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a favoritePepper crusted seared tuna was outstanding!! Fellow diner had mixed grill (sirloin, 2 scallops, 2 shrimp) that was very good. Waitress was a sweetheart and served with a smile. Wish the table nearby was quieter -- I can still here the guy describing how he birthed his baby in detail. At least it was a happy ending.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood findGreat service. I had the cheese plate (very nice) and lobster cakes (good). My husband loved his haddock. Lemon tart was dry and served too cold. Great atmosphere but the fit was tight. Nice area...very popular. Not sure we could have gotten in without a reservation.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDavid's in Portland, MeOur first time at David's. Requested a corner table for our anniversary dinner and loved every aspect of the evening. Not a quiet place, so those looking for a quiet evening should be warned. Presentation of all meals was wonderful. The food was flavorful and delicious. We ordered dessert and they had already taken the time to decorate our dessert plates with Happy Anniversary in chocolate. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend David's.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to enjoy a mealGreat place to enjoy a meal with a friend.
