Food and atmosphere were great! Libby is amazing!
Always great food! Highly recommend for consistently delicious food!
My husband and I have been meaning to try this for the past few years and I can’t believe it took us this long. We went here for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. The service was awesome, the food was amazing, and the drinks were creative and delicious. All in a location with a quaint small-town atmosphere. This is definitely going in our regular rotation!
Lovely local neighborhood dining. Food was great, just changed to fall menu. Limited seating so be sure to make a reservation.
David’s 388 never disappoints! The service, the food, and just general overall great feeling when you walk through the door!
Food was excellent, no waiting, nice ambiance, nice waitstaff
The food at David’s 388 is always very good. We were there to celebrate my mom’s birthday.
It was a lovely evening, no complaints.
The staff is professional and friendly.
Looking forward to going back soon.
David's 388 is one of our go-to places for either special occasions or just for a nice meal that we don't have to prepare at home. It is casual and relaxed. The service is spot on and the food excellent. It really has a neighborhood feel to it, too.
Great local spot with food that looks as good as it tastes - very inventive! Outstanding, friendly service.
Our first time at David’s 388 - recommended to us by the concierge at the Inn By the Sea. We loved everything about it - the neighborhood feel, the staff, and the food. We will be back!
David’s is always a great experience . The service was top notch and the food was outstanding as well
Lovely service and delicious food!
Duck was over cooked which ruined the dish
In the many years this place has been open, I have never had a less than excellent meal here. That being said, you have to open your wallet. The weirdest thing is that the price for 1.5 glass of wine is EXACTLY 50% higher than 1.0, even to the penny! As a psychiatrist and obviously a student of psychology, I understand how people want at least a PERCEIVED value, I don't have the foggiest why the owner doesn't list the 1.5 just a 25 cent less price. Methinks there'd be a lot more of the 1.5 glasses sold but....I'm not a restaurateur.
Libby was fantastic as our server and the food and drinks were excellent!
Pricey, but excellent food with attentive service.
Food was phenomenal. Favorite restaurant in the greater Portland area. Recommend to everyone and anyone.
Great food and also a great vibe.
Delicious food, great service, amazing ambiance, and affordable. Would highly recommend!!
Food was mediocre. The sauce on the seafood parpadelle was watery, crispy brussel sprouts were ok. They could have cooked just a little bit longer.
We are visiting from Philadelphia where we have many fine dining options. David’s 388 was a Great experience. Easier to get to and park than places in downtown or Old Port Portland, and food was 5/5
A return visit to a beloved restaurant at which we were regulars when living in the area. We now live on the West Coast, and this was our top choice to enjoy on our two week visit here. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Great wine offering. Loved our “shrimp and grits” and Magret duck entrees, as well as our bread pudding and cheesecake desserts. Top quality experience.
Vacation spot. Great food, menu could provide more options for those who do not eat seafood
David’s is one restaurant we plan ahead for every year. Food is remarkable, drinks are perfect and staff is incredibly friendly and attentive.
David’s 388 never fails to impress us! We had a wonderful meal with excellent service! Thanks for such a wonderful experience
Food was excellent, as usual. It was a special night out to celebrate hubby’s birthday. And we got to sit by the window. We joked that we were put there because of our good looks - to entice people to come in.
WOW! Brought my husband here for his birthday. The food was amazing! An online review cannot do justice. We will definitely be going back soon!
We have been to David's previously, so were anxious to return. Unfortunately we were a little disappointed. We LOVED, did I say LOVED, the Brussel sprouts! We, all 3, lamented not ordering them as our meal.
My vegetarian daughter and friend ordered the Moroccan medley and were underwhelmed. They felt it was over spiced and not all that tasty. I chose the Seafood Papardelle which was a stretch for me. I enjoy shrimp and scallops but rarely order lobster and not familiar with sherry cream sauce which I found a little too sweet, probably my fault.
BUT we ordered one Cheesecake without rum caramel sauce or at least we thought! It came including the Rum sauce and we were all thankful! It was delicious and as it turns out one wasn't enough!
Bottom line is that it begin and ended really well but the middle was a little disappointing. My daughter commented that the menu seemed to be a little abbreviated from previous visits. But all being said we like David's ~ the atmosphere, the service and food, if you choose well. Next time we will order the Brussies and cheesecake and call it a meal!
They did a great job with seating and acknowledging our anniversary!
Outstanding food. We had two completely different dishes and could not decide which one was better. Lover them both.
Had to change reservation times twice to accommodate the arrival of our guests & staff could not have been nicer! Enjoyed shrimp & scallops with grits-delicious!
Reliably fine dining in a real neighborhood bistro.
Always consistent with good food and good service. Accomodated our request to come early. Hostess friendly both on arrival and departure. A favorite.
David’s was wonderful as usual. First time back since our move to NY and Covid. I had the avocado terrine and the salmon and the rest of our foursome all chose the scallops and shrimp. Lots of flavor and garlic which we all love. The potstickers were great as usual. great return to in person dining
Superb experience! We had the peeky toe crab and carpaccio appetizers and for mains, the salmon and scallops/shrimp.
Excellent food in a neighborhood atmosphere. Small restaurant with exceptionally attentive staff. The menu is not extensive which works in their favor. What they do is interesting, fresh, and well-presented. Prices are good considering the high quality of their plates.
Always such a great dining experience - professional staff, fun atmosphere and sophisticated cuisine.
Amazing as always! So nice to be back to dining. Great set up with distanced tables.
