David Todd's City Tavern is a contemporary American restaurant and lounge having an explicit wine bar as well. It offers vegetarian dishes for those who are on a diet and also has an el fresco dining area. The interior of the restaurant is comprised of 2 elongated dining areas, with each one running parallel to the other one to provide a good semblance of privacy. The bar at David Todd's City Tavern is in a separate area which consists of its own dining setting.
David Todd's City Tavern's special meals include Parisian pizza, fried calamari, duck confit tacos, foie gras burgers and veal Demi. The restaurant allows the patrons to indulge in tartare testing as they enjoy their salmon, tuna and avocado-mango relishes.
Service was a bit slow, granted, a large table on Saturday night. Had trouble working with vegan options, which was weird since we had great vegan accommodation in the past.
Seemed the place was a bit overwhelmed. Bathrooms messy, lack of communication, staff not really supportive of each other.
The food was very good but very pricey. Didn't feel I got my monies worth.
We had a show at the MPAC on Valentines day and made reservation for dinner. Got there a bit earlier then expected and sat down immediately and glad we did... the place got packed. The food was great and also the staff. Next time we go back we'll sit in the awesome bar area...
I was able to get a table that I reserved for Valentine's day on the same day, so I was very happy about that. The food was extremely flavorful, the atmosphere was excellent, and we enjoyed our dinner. I was very unhappy with the server, although looking at other tables I noticed the other servers were much more professional. I've been a waiter, and I always leave a tip, but I do tip based on the service. I almost always tip 20%, 15 for standard service, and 10 if the service was unacceptable. Our server didn't bother to read us the specials, leading me to believe there were none (until I overheard another server reading them off). She came to the table and asked if we'd like water, then made us wait for our drink order. When she did take the drink order she finally brought them over and quickly walked away before bothering to ask if we were ready to order any food. When she finally did return to take our order that was probably the last we saw of her. She did come to ask us if everything was good: but after we'd already finished. I felt like they were understaffed and must have had someone helping out because I did feel like it wasn't the best service. Again, this may be nitpicking for some, but for someone who has been a server I expect a bit more in an establishment that costs top dollar.
Good menu selection. Food well prepared.
This was my fourth visit..two orders of coq a vin were horrible - a few pieces of overcooked stewed chicken thrown into a bowl of bad rice and dishwater...very disappointing.
We've been to DT's before and came back for a Valentine's Day dinner. We had a later reservation and had a lovely evening. No rush out the door and our server, Katarina, actually remembered us from the last time we were there a few months ago.
Great food, drink and ambiance. I especially appreciate that it wasn't a problem to make a decaf cappuccino for me at the end of the night.
We will continue to patronize DT's - we always leave happy!
Thanks for a great night, again!
Been looking for a place with good cocktails and this did not disappoint. Really enjoyed the pear martinin, lychee martini, and the spicy kiwi martini. Had the fois gras burger. The fois gras was overcooked but the burger was done just right. Had the flight of oysters, which was tasty, but a bit overpriced.
Delicious braised lamb shank with mashed sweet potato. Unique combination. Nicely done.
Eclectic menu and very lively atmosphere. Dinner was very enjoyable.
Two rooms - one side is quiet and the other is where the bar is. If you like energetic and staff with great personalities and love their job, D&T is the place. D&Ts is one of my favs in MoTown just because of the energy, the oysters, and a tasty selection of apps and entrees that the staff is very knowledgeable about. And don't get me started on their specials! WoW!!
This is a good place for dinner prior to a show at the Mayo Center. Tell your server you are going to a show and you will get there on time. We appreciated the number of lighter choices on the menu, well suited prior to a two hour performance.
Overall, tasty food. But for entrees that can go into the $30 range per plate, the actual protein given to customers, particularly on the fish dishes, is tiny. Went to dinner with my parents -- thankfully, I ordered a the lamb shank, which was, honestly, quite good and filling, however, both my parents had fish (red fish and alaskan cod), and their plates came out, and we all asked where the rest of the fish was. While tasty, the meal was generally overpriced for such small portions. Additionally, the wait staff was not exactly very friendly. Sadly, unlikely I'll be coming back here, as I had high expectations.
They have a very unique menu and it's pretty pricey but the food quality is great and the wine list is good (with options for flights!)
Perfect pre-theater dining! Always enjoyable!
We haven't been to David todds for a year or two, and it certainly was not the restaurant we remember. Food was average, nothing special for the price. Service was lousy- had to track down the waiter several times. Won't go back anytime soon.
We wanted an early meal for First Night and found it at David Todd's. The meal was delicious with good choices and the service could not have been friendlier and more attentive. We have eaten there previously.....but this was the perfect place to go to before the "First Night" that Morristown puts on each year.
Food and service were excellent but it was a bit strange that it was so empty at 8:30 on a Saturday night.
We went with friends for drinks and snacks. When I took my first bit into the Olive bread I got a whole olive pit! It could have been a very big disaster.
The food and service were OK.
Good food with broad selections and attentive service
