Service was great, we had Rowkey as our waiter he was phenomenal. I had the ribeye which was cooked to perfection mashed potatoes were great, my wife had the scallops which were the best scallops we have ever had in our life along with the mashed potatoes, the chef special and the palate-cleansing was very enjoyable. It was our first time there we will definitely be back could not ask for a better visit.

What a lovely restaurant! My daughter, son-in-law and I wanted to eat at a restaurant in which we had not been on any of our annual beach trips. We discovered David's, and it was a wonderful choice! It's extensive menu provided each of us with an entree that pleased. I love nothing better than Dover Sole which is a rare menu item in most places. It was beautifully cooked and prepared and absolutely delicious! The others ordered the truffle scallops and rack of lamb, both excellent and enjoyed. Our waiter, Mark, was attentive and pleasant and the ambience of the dining room was relaxed and beautiful. The restaurant is easy to locate and the parking was easy. There is no doubt that David's will be #1 on our "dining out" list when we return to Fernandina. Thank you for a very special dining experience during our stay on Amelia Island.

Not what we were anticipating. Caesar salad came out with rusty old lettuce...sent it back. My husband ordered lamb chops which were very average, no crispness on the outside of bones or meat. The sauce that accompanied them was very salty. My pasta was warm and tasteless. Best thing was the sea salt caramel gelato. May be it was just an off nite.

Heard great things about this place but were very disappointed. We were taking some friends for a special dinner, firstly in a nearly empty restaurant were sat opposite the swing door into the kitchen, with staff gathering there to chat .
The food was only average and certainly not good value for money.
The beet salad had minute cubes of beets on few salad leaves with a very heavy dressing, very poor.
The mains were just average , steaks and scallops. The Yukon mash over salted and the green beans tasteless .
We did not bother with dessert.
For such a highly acclaimed restaurant they need to up their game, and lower the prices.
I would not recommend this place and won’t go back. There are many better places on the island than David’s .

We celebrated our anniversary at David's and had an amazing experience. The staff is very friendly and attentive, and every item we had, from the cocktails, to the filet mignon to dessert was incredible. Beautiful presentation, and each course was timed perfectly to allow for a relaxed dining experience.

This is a very fine restaurant with excellent food and service. I think David's and Burlingame are my two favorite Amelia Island restaurants with Davids being the best but Burlingame being a better value. I really enjoyed the little touches at David's: the pre-dinner small spoon appetizer, the sorbet before the main course and the excellent chocolate strawberry for a small desert. We were too full to even think of a full desert but the small free desert was fantastic and loved by all in my party. I think attention to small details is probably this restaurant's biggest strength. The biggest problem is certainly the cost!

Overall, another satisfying experience at one of Amelia Island’s finest restaurants. Both of us opted for the sea bass which is, in our opinion, an excellent choice. We enjoyed Caesar salads, two deserts accompanied by three glasses of house wine. The total cost was $174.00 which is a bit high although presented with impeccable service.

One slight complaint is that several diners appeared not dressed properly for such a fine restaurant wearing what seemed to be untucked tee shirts over golf shorts. We feel that diners should respect the fine ambience of David’s with appropriate clothing when dining there. Of course, this is a resort island catering to tourists of all stripes and proper etiquette is not always observed.

My wife had to return two gin & tonics due to the tonic being flat without fizz. Had our guest sample it as well. He also said it was flat. This should happen in one of those he most expensive on the Island.

Great food, loved the fish cake. Outstanding beet salad. Great waiter.

Loved it all except too loud to hear conversation at our table of four in the back room. It was difficult to talk which was the objective of the evening. Maybe adding some fabrics on surfaces throughout the room to absorb some sound would be helpful. It was a diin. It put the din in dinner hahaha! Still, our favorite place for a lovely meal with impeccable service and excellent food.
