Special night out with my husband. We were visiting from Michigan and heard David’s was the best in town. So true! Drinks, apps, dinner and dessert were amazing, as well as the service in the bar and our waiter. Do not miss this restaurant if you are in Amelia Island.

We were there right when they opened. We had a drink at their very cozy bar and the table was ready promptly at 6. Seated in one of the booths that lined the restaurant. We had excellent service and the food was very good. My wife thought the wine was reasonably priced for a restaurant.

Server was not overly friendly however the person helping him was. That compensated from the blah personality of the waiter. Scampi had very little flavor. Tasted very bland...definitely not worth the money. The Chilean sea bass on the other hand was excellent. I would definitely try the restaurant again and perhaps order their beef.

Nice Restaurant we went for Thanksgiving Price fix menu. Filets were good. Service was friendly until the end we felt a little bit rushed. I understand they wanted to get home but our reservation was 6:45 pm. Would have liked to relax after dinner.

Davids is a go-to for me for steak in Fernandina. It is a special treat steak, and we don’t dine weekly for dinner :)

Great wine (and actually priced well compared to retail for our bottle).

We’ve been living in the area for 20 years and eat as much away from home as in. Davids always delivers.

Still the best restaurant in Fernandina Beach. Service by Kendell was outstanding.
Although my Chilean Sea Bass was excellent, my wife’s Lamb chops was tough & disappointed.

It was a special occasion. The waitstaff did a terrific job. It was a Sunday night, so it wasn’t crowded at all. The food was good, although the steak sauce they cooked with was a bit too salty. Still a great piece of filet mignon. The crab cake appetizer was okay, but nothing to write home about. The menu choices were plenty, so next time I’ll order something different. Definitely going back.

Crab bisque was lukewarm, and so was steak and risotto. Food is good but temperature always seem to be an issue. Great drinks, but wish you had a rose champagne by the glass.

I Fully realize we were there for Ga VS Fla. However there were a few inexcusable events during the evening. First we had 8:30 reservations, I received the bottle of wine we ordered upon seating at 9:35pm and poured my own wine for the most part. Secondly, the first petit filet I ordered was, admittedly, way over cooked and the replacement was not good at all. My tables steaks and food was very, very good! Lastly, and still sticking in the craw of a few of our table of 9 (2 tables next to each other), was we were not told of the added gratuity and had to re-run a couple cards upon discovery. I would recommend David's, and I would return, but with eyes wide open!

Everything about our evening was extraordinary!
We were on Amelia for our annual trip to the Florida vs Georgia football game. My wife and I always use this fun trip to have a great date night.
Patrick was great. His wine recommendation was point on with our food choices.
FIVE STAR evening!
Thanks Fred and Chrissie

It's always a bit if a surprise to walk into an ordinary-looking brick building and be escorted to a warm, elegant dining room. The food selections are appealing and broad even for almost anyone. The wine list is well done with a tablet allowing more information than the typical printed list. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Food was excellent

Excellent dining experience from start to finish! We were greeted at the door, welcomed to our seats, and treated with impeccable service. David's Restaurant & Lounge goes above and beyond to treat their guests with superior service. The food was absolutely delicious! Excellent choice for a romantic, honeymoon meal. We both had the filet mignon, grilled to a perfect medium rare, with pan seared scallops that could have melted in our mouths! Everything was perfect, from start to finish, including the salads, sides, and creme brulee. We will definitely visit again when we are visiting Amelia Island!

The service was great, and the food was great, however the food was not worth the cost. Over $250 for a party of two, the food better be incomparable, but I could get a better meal for less money elsewhere.

The food was fantastic from start to finish. The atmosphere was so relaxing it didnt even feel like a restaurant it felt more like a very comfortable home. The service was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. The cost was very reasonable. We were expecting the bill to be much higher for the quality of food and the level of service that we received it was a pleasant surprise. We are from Canada and it would be worth the trip just to visit this restaurant again and try more of the dishes. To start I had the shrimp cocktail it was very fresh and my husband had the ceaser salad it was fantastic with the fresh shave parmesan. We were brought a raspberry sorbet that was very refreshing and full of flavour. We were brought a sample of the special which was duck. Even though I am not a big fan of duck it was pretty good. The duck was in a BlackBerry sauce which I did love. My husband had the steak it was so flavorful and tender it came with fresh green beans and Yukon gold potatoes done to perfection. I had the chicken with capers the flavour was unbelievable it also came with green beans and Yukon gold potatoes. I was so happy to see it was yukon gold potatoes because you rarely see them being served in a restaurant. True Yukon gold potatoes have a very distinctive flavor. We shared the flourless chocolate torte it was so decadent and a perfect dessert for chocolate lovers. They brought us chocolate covered strawberries at the end of the meal. The bread was fantastic. They had an excellent wine list I really liked the fact that the wine list gave very specific description of each wine which made it much easier to choose. I also liked the fact you could order it by the bottle or glass. This restaurant goes out of it's way to make you feel pampered and very important. It is so hard to describe the experience simply with words it is something you really just have to experience for yourself. I will never forget it. It was a very memorable anniversary dinner. Try it !

We were there when a loud, large birthday party was there, so the noise level was too high for our liking. Usually this is not the case.

The food was delicious. Our party enjoyed the filet mignon, seafood pasta, rib eye Pittsburg style, fish special of the day. We all found our meals to be delicious. A special note to those who love scallops. The chef really knows how to sear them to perfection. They were not overcooked. They were perfectly seasoned.
