    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary last night at David's. It was our first time and we were very pleasantly surprised. Our server Michelle did an outstanding job. She knew the details of the dishes and was conversional when we asked. The food was outstanding. My wife had never ordered bouliabasse and completely enjoyed the presentation and composition of the dish. We have now decided this is a go-to location for our special occasions. Chef David....bravo!

    I had the pleasure of discovering Amelia Island recently and stumbled upon an incredible restaurant. Everything from the impeccable service to the charming atmosphere, stylish decor, and delectable food exceeded my expectations. I'm already dreaming of living nearby just so I can become a regular patron. The menu boasted an impressive array of options, and every detail, from the wine selection to the delightful dessert offerings, left a lasting impression. We celebrated our work anniversary there. Thinking of going back again Wednesday night.

    Honest feedback from a group of five- 2 steak and 2 sea bass dishes were fairly good but not explained well by server who also did not come back to check the meals after they were served. Carrots are very al dente, mashed potatoes somewhat thin. Butternut squash dish was bland and not at all as expected, if it had been described then might not have ordered. Drinks are expensive $15-$16 each, everyone said they felt there was very little alcohol (no buzz) in their drinks and the dirty martini was missing the olive juice, so they brought it on the side instead of making it correctly. For apps- Escargot was very good, David’s salad very good, Brie was displayed nicely but not served with a toast or cracker, so hmmm. The location we were sat - back dark room with a bench and hard wood back was not relaxing or upscale feeling. Like an afterthought and we had a reservation way in advance and walked by lots of empty tables at 6 pm. BTW We are not going to send food back - I did tell the server the squash was not as expected and she brought extra cookies with the bill. A score of 6 out of 10 and would not return if we visit Amelia in the future.

    Not quite up to par with our previous trips to David’s. Filet and Snapper special were tasty, but very small portions. Water glasses stayed empty awaiting refills on multiple occasions. Just not quite the fine dining experience we had hoped for in celebration of our wedding anniversary.

    VERY high priced Wagyu Akaushi Ribeye was a disappointment; it was a little chewy which surprised me; cooked Medium as ordered; ordered Yukon mashed potatoes and Asparagus but received carrots and mashed potatoes with a spicy red sauce on it; they corrected it but the server was quite busy and did not see us for a while; steak had cooled while I waited; my wife was happy with her meal

    David’s is the place to go for the most fabulous, fancy meal in Fernandina. Every bite, from the amuse bouche to the final bite of birthday cake macaron was PERFECT! The filet was beautiful and both the Dover Sole and the Sea Bass were absolutely divine!

    We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at David’s Restaurant and Lounge with 3 other couples. David’s seated us in their private wine room for dinner. It is absolutely lovely. Only the 8 of us in what looks like a wine cellar! Beautiful, and Quiet! Our service was great. We had a waiter and his assistant plus some others taking orders and serving. The food was great…. There is no better description. Several had sea bass, a couple had rack of lamb, there was a lobster tail and a filet mignon, salads, soup, desserts, etc., and of course many drinks and wind. All were happy with their choices. All 8 of us were able to follow a single conversation which all contributed to. One fellow wears a hearing aid and even he was actively involved in the conversation during the evening. Many thanks to David’s staff. You made our 50th anniversary a “once in a lifetime” event and memory. Thank YOU!

    Shrimp ceviche and bread were delicious to start meal. Mussels were very good, as well as lobster bisque. Entrees were a mixed bag, from very good to mediocre. Seafood bouillabaisse and Dover sole were best, fillet was good, lamb was ok but a bit overcooked and short rib was a little fatty.

    We come here annually for our birthdays. We have been doing this for at least 15 years. The food is always outstanding as well as the service. The prices have reached our limits and unfortunately next year we may be going elsewhere. To spend over $70 without drinks and dessert is ridiculous.

    We have dined at David’s many times and have had good food and service. Our most recent experience was disappointing. Our special entree ($69), was undercooked. They did prepare a new one, which was much better, but we had to wait a long time for the replacement and by then we had lost our appetite. The restaurant didn’t offer to compensate us in any way for the wait or inconvenience. Given their prices, etc. , we felt they could have done more to makeup for their mistake!

    Not sure what the hype was about this place. We spent $250 and left hungry. Most things we got were just a couple of bites. Good, but tiny portions. The inside reminded me of a strip mall restaurant with fake stone and fake grass between booths. My husband’s steak was good but that’s probably the extent of positive feedback. Try it for yourself!
