    Another night of first class food, service and wine! Staff were knowledgeable, personable and professional. Food was prepared as ordered , attractively plated and served at proper temperatures. Portions were more than ample and staff courteously boxed what we wanted to take home. The Grill Room has become our go to choice for special occasions but also for when we just want a great meal.

    Greeted and seated immediately. Ordered wine, spaghetti and meatballs, a Caesar salad and garlic bread. All were wonderfully prepared and actually, wonderful to eat. Nice ambiance. The bar was pretty full when we arrived at 5:30. Happy hour, I expect. We will certainly return and will request a front window table.

    This was our first visit (recommended by Facebook friends) and we were so glad we found David’s! We were meeting new friends before going to a concert. From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect—friendly staff, cool vibe, delicious smells, great wine and cocktail/mocktail menus… the food was incredible! We enjoyed the meatloaf, the crispy skin duck, Caesar salad with grilled shrimp and anchovies, and crème brûlée and chocolate torte for dessert… perfection! Will definitely be back soon!

    The combination of ambience and good food makes the evening for me. Respectful and patient servers even during a storm. The food is eclectic and the plates are small enough that you can sample multiple dishes. Wonderful date night and will return!
