David's Restaurant & Lounge
Fantastic meal of crab cake appetizer and beet salad followed by seafood pappardelle and roasted pork shank special..ending with a incredible flourless chocolate torte. It was a wonderful birthday experience all provided by our excellent and knowledgeable server Mark. P.S he’s also a great photographer! Our favorite restaurant on Amelia Island for special occasions.
Everything was perfect. Ryan was incredible, meal was off the charts. David’s has set the standard
Service staff was awesome, the food in between meals was delicious, and the steak was on point!
Service is spectacular, as is the food. The place is beautiful, spotlessly clean, and the recorded music selections are most enjoyable. It’s a first class place, but not a bit snooty. Parking is nearby; valet parking is also available. The staff is constantly on the move, but quietly attending to business, and not at all obtrusive. David’s just rose to the top of our favorites list!
Almost everything was great. My steak was slightly overdone, but it was still very tasty, but I would have preferred med-rare. The three other guest's filet's were perfectly cooked.
Just to be clear, it wasn't inedible, it was still a very good steak.
David's never disappoints. Food, beverage and service is most always stellar. This visit however, the service as a bit off. By a bit off, I mean it wasn't as excellent as usual, but still better than most places. Server seemed preoccupied or just not sharp. Regardless, food was excellent and an enjoyable birthday celebration for our friend was successful.
very nice spot - lovely décor, attention to detail. The bread came in a cool box but was disappointing. nice amuse, sorbet pallet cleanser. I had the prix fix and it was good value.
Excellent place to celebrate special occasions. The food and service were awesome. We will definitely go back.
My wife and I were visiting Amelia Island to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. David’s was verbally recommended by a number of locals as the perfect place for our anniversary dinner. They were right! We enjoyed a memorable evening with excellent food and service. If you visit, the Chilean Sea Bass is the best I have ever had!
Mark was an awesome server and David was very attentive!
Great service, amazing food. Eating Keto was easy.
New Years Eve—5:15 Rez only option
Two Seated in dark back room and told we could not change to main dining room because all Rez would fill in quickly. Table of 6 beside us moved no problem
Drinks were not correct but we only mentioned it after waiter asked. 2nd try was perfect.
One dinner served with salsa all over fish after requesting it on the side. So I finished dinner as 2nd meal was served to companion.
Service was too fast—no option for 2nd drink before food service. Poor waiter was worried about tip w screw ups from bar and kitchen and lost his sense of humor.
Food was outstanding, ambiance for NYE was not worth the $ and will not select David’s for that again.
PS I live around the corner and would have liked a better experience for reliable favorite w family and friends
We dined at Davids for new years eve and had a fantastic meal. This was not our first time at Davids and will surely not be our last. Everything was excellent from the service to quality of food and presentation.
The food was good. Two of us ordered the Dover Sole and thought it was a little tough. Our server was adequate but she could smile a little more.
Unfortunately, there was a large family party in the center of the room that apparently thought they were in their home not a restaurant to consider those around them.
The Sea Bass and Dover Sole main courses were very good, and a welcome departure from the ubiquitous shrimp and grits and crab cakes that are found on every other menu here in Amelia Island.
Also, the entire wait staff was extremely professional, especially our main waiter Glen. We really appreciate a front-of-house that is so well run!
Awesome every time
Over priced for the level of quality and service. Our introduction to the service was first made by a teenager who introduced himself as the wait staff assistant. It reminded me of the old adage that children should be seen and not heard. The bar menu looked interesting and if I were to go back, I would nibble around the bar area instead of the dining room.
We went for Christmas dinner - a set three course meal. Holiday dining can be hit or miss. This was a real hit! The appetizers were great, the entrees (sea bass and beef tenderloin) were outstanding, and the desserts (pecan pie and caramel cheese cake) excellent. Our server, Sage, was first rate - friendly, professional, efficient, and a good conversationalist. All the other servers were also excellent. The ambiance and pace of the meal were perfect. They also do corkage so we could enjoy the Christmas wine my partner bought for us. In all, a wonderful evening. Will go back next trip to Amelia!
Amazing Christmas dinner!
The salted caramel cheesecake was the best I have ever tasted.
We will be returning next year as well.
Christmas dinner at David’s was extremely disappointing. We waited almost an hour between the appetizers and the main course. The food was inedible. It was cold, badly seasoned and ineptly cooked. The lobster tails were dry and cold, the steak had burnt seasoning that tasted like a badly cleaned grill. My plate was sent back and the food served in the new plate was just as bad as the original. At $80 a meal it was a very expensive mistake.
This was a great menu for Christmas. Our only disappointment was the cocktails were lacking in taste and technique.
It's hard to find good restaurants that are open on Christmas Eve so we reserved Davids well in advance and were looking forward to what should have been a good dining experience.
It was a fixed price menu and I was not thrilled with the limited choices. I didn't see anything about this when I reserved, or was reminded or reconfirmed. I picked this restaurant for their menu but it was not available. The food was just OK, especially considering the high price. It may have been better if I could have ordered what I wanted from a full menu.
It took forever to get drinks. Unsolicited we were told that there was only one bartender for the entire restaurant and bar and besides that he is 73 years old! Not too far from my age so a little offensive!
All in all disappointed. Maybe it's different outside the holiday period.
One of the best restaurants in Florida. Worth the trip from wherever you are.
We ate here on Christmas Eve and the restaurant is beautifully designed and lit. The servers were efficient and polite. Our waiter was helpful and informative.
Overall our food was delicious (we had steaks and fish) the room was nicely decorated and the service was great.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who like steak and is looking for a special evening.
Had a wonderful time at David's. Great food, service and company made for a great birthday dinner for my mother in law. We will definitely return!
Great food and service in a very nice atmosphere!
Fun time with family… Very nice environment… Food was served warm instead of hot, and service was very slow… I think they were understaffed…
The Filet Oscar was flawless, wife said the scallops were like pillows. Ambiance was perfect, very special place. Makes Capital Grille look like Golden Corral....
We had a very tasty dinner. You don’t see rack of lamb on menus often, it’s my favorite. We enjoyed the tasting of caprese bites, intermezzo, and chocolate covered strawberries after dinner. Nice place for a special dinner.
Celebrating my bfs bday. Ryan the waiter was awesome. Food was incredible. We had a lovely evening.
Hosted 7 friends and family for my birthday. Wonderful! Food great, service good, ambience perfect and decor fab@
David’s is our favorite restaurant in Fernandina Beach. The service is by far the best and the food is delicious and consistent. We enjoy taking our out of town guests there when they visit.
One of Amelia Island’s best restaurants, David’s is always excellent. The menu offers a variety of options and the wine list is substantial. Our food choices were prepared perfectly and the service was prompt.
Both the food and the service were excellent! Our party of 9 was very pleased with the experience. We will definitely return!
It was my husband’s birthday. We had a delectable meal. Truly enjoyed the experience!
Great food and Service! The Sea Bass was exceptional
Excellent restaurant. Service was impeccable. Food is always great.
All areas except the food where excellent. Our complaint were the garlic mashed potatoes, they were stiff and dry. The steaks were 5 star! The chef must not have sampled the them or he/she would have discarded this batch of potatoes.
We love coming here for our anniversary celebration! David's is always friendly and the food is excellent.
