    Service was excellent. We went early and had a drink in the bar before our table was called. My wife lived her Rack of Lamb, and my Chilean Sea bass was excellent. Apple pie crumble for dessert was just what we expected, and very good. Our waitress and her helpers were on top of everything.

    The food and service was excellent. The special attention given to the presentation (visual appeal) of each dish made the dining a delightful experience. I would recommend selecting one of the specials for the night (either appetizer or entree), the chef(s) come up with some interesting creations.

    The food and food choices at David’s are excellent. Small menu with ample choice for any palette. I would have liked a little less formal in the bar area but all in all, a great dinner spot. Just as a side note, my wife said this was one of the best meals ever.

    The food and service at David's are easily 5 star. The caviar is a must try. I would pass on the brie en croute. It was good, but not great compared to everything else. I highly recommend this place. We will definitely return. My only criticism is not taking reservations close to when the kitchen closes. I called ahead and asked if the kitchen closes at 9 because my reservation was at 8:45. I was told it doesn't close at 9 on the phone, but the waiter did tell me it closes at 9. He was able to get the kitchen to work with us, but we did feel slightly rushed. Especially toward the end when we were the last customers in the restaurant and we were there for barely over an hour. I shouldn't feel rushed at a restaurant this nice and this pricey. I would suggest taking the last reservation at 8 or 8:15 if kitchen closes at 9, so the last reservation can fully enjoy their dinner. Just a thought. Everything else was perfect though, especially the food and service.

    I love this place. The overall experience was great. I visited during my anniversary in March and as recent as yesterday I chose to take my daughter for her 30th birthday. I had reserved for 2 but added my son to the mix and they accommodated without any issues. The staff was kind and professional. The drinks were good and the food fantastic! I will be back.

    The general manager and host, Norf, was outstanding - warm, welcoming and inviting! Professional and accommodating on the phone and even better in person. The atmosphere and setting of the restaurant was very nice, very cozy. The bar was small, but quaint. The bartender, Glen, was distant and not engaging at all - too bad. Javier was our server and was very good - attentive and engaging, good knowledge of the menu. All supporting staff was above-average.

    I have never had a dining experience to match the one at David’s. It was a spur of the moment decision to go, and it was incredible. The food was absolutely delicious! Our table had the rack of lamb, Surf and turf, and salad. Everything was cooked to perfection and seasoned wonderfully. The staff was very attentive and our glasses were refilled as soon as they got to the halfway point. We tried the chocolate flourless torte which was so rich. The only real disappointment was the tiramisu which was a special that evening. It just had a weird consistency and didn’t taste anything like I’ve ever had. They replaced it with the crème brûlée which was a bit heavier than normal, but very tasty. The prices are quite high so it won’t be a frequent outing, but it was well worth it
