We thought it was strange that we were the first table there, at 5:30, and we were seated right next to the door with a comment about how freezing cold it was when the door opened. Huh? When we were the only table, our server seemed rushed and a little pressured. As the place filled, she became absent and unavailable. Everyone, including the kitchen, was unsure about what kind of mushrooms were in the risotto. Steak was overdone, and the napkins smelled like the dish room. Great wine, nice ambiance! Overall, a little confusing.

Absolutely phenomenal! Interesting cocktails and awesome reasonable wine list. Potstickers we’re perfect on a cold night. And the meatloaf special was amazing. Filet mignon was perfect. Great sides. And chocolate torte perfect end. Excellent server who helped us make decisions by describing the good, and advising well. She was one of these best we’ve met.

David's 388 has the kindest, most professional staff in the area. Their food is exceptional every time, without fail. They consistently produce a lively and well-priced beverage program. I couldn't be happier that this is the neighborhood spot.

We had an early New Year’s Eve dinner at David’s 388 at 6pm. The food was outstanding as always. The filet and seafood parpardelle was delicious as well as the crème brûlée.

We were very uncomfortable because the woman at the table next to us was coughing and clearing her throat throughout our meal. A mask mandate should be enforced unless a person is actively eating or drinking. Otherwise a mask should cover the patron’s nose and mouth. I really also hope a proof of vaccination or negative test is passed by the city council. I also the woman who coughed did not have covid and is more responsible before she dines out again. I may not dine inside a restaurant again unless the mandate passes.

Just a great experience! From welcoming to departure this was an awesome meal. We understood from the beginning that we had 90 minutes to enjoy everything. We could have lingered a bit longer. But it did not take away from our feelings of comfort and satisfaction. Food - Great. Presentation - refined. Ambiance - cozy. Waitperson - friendly and professional. Go to this restaurant NOW.

Excellent options and quick, responsive service. I thought the breadstick/focaccia where tasty, perhaps warmed and served with a little olive oil would have take them to the next level. Entrees were a little salty. Duck breast was cooked perfectly. Beets were an excellent small plate for sharing.
