Beautiful place, very romantic. Staff were great. We had grilled octopus appetizer which was amazing. Also, had Salted Caramel Cheesecake which was amazing as well. Wife had King Crab and it is very nice they split the legs for you to take the effort out of eating it. Will definitely return!

Our second time here in a week's stay in Amelia Island. Everything was exceptional from the server to the food to the ambience. No crab as there seems to be a shortage but other than that..we had the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer and as mains, the filet mignon with mushroom risotto (fabulous) and the seafood scampi; just delicious. There was not much room for dessert so we shared the Italian Gelato and were treated to 2 chocolate covered strawberries on the house. Wish there was a David's where I live!

A very nice place with pleasant people. We had a nice, extravagant dinner. The caviar was fun.

My complaint is that my wife is gluten free, which we were clear about when we made the reservation. The restaurant didn’t handle that well at all.

We chose David’s restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food and service were outstanding. We were seated in a rounded booth, which was a little different and fun. The decor was sleek yet the ambience was cozy - which doesn’t make sense but you’ll have to go there to see what I mean ;) We highly recommend David’s. We would definitely go there again.

Excellent from beginning to end. The restaurant itself is peaceful, dimly lit, tables are far apart and yet very cozy. Our server Sean was most professional, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Our appetizers were Shrimp Cocktail (generously sized) and Beet Salad. Our Mains were Beef Tenderloin (perfectly cooked) with wild mushroom Risotto (delicious) and Dover Sole Meuniere (excellent). Only had room for ice cream. Had a lovely vodka/pomegranate molasses martini to start, Malbec with dinner and a David's Irish Coffee type drink to end. Loved the whole experience and have booked again for our last night here.

My wife and I went to David's because of the fine reviews it had received. It fell well short of our expectations, especially our dinners.

My wife loved her salad, my escargot was long on a bland cheese topping and short on garlic. But it was great compared to our entrees. As this was a steak house and the special of the night was prime rib, we both ordered it. Big mistake. The meat was full of gristle, so tough it was almost impossible to cut, and stringy. We suspect this might have been a last-minute addition to the menu; several items were unavailable as the restaurant was out of crab meat.

The service was also spotty. One staffer brought a nice sorbet to cleanse our pallets after the appetizers and before we could taste it our entrees arrived. Then we had to wait some time after we finished to get our check.

We hope David's is just having recovery pains as business rebounds from the depths of the pandemic. But we can't recommend it now on the basis of our one evening there.

Brad, our server was outstanding. He helped my sister and I celebrate our May birthdays. When I was not satisfied with a red wine, he provided me with two other choices. He was delightful, knowledgeable, and even though the Dover Sole is outstanding, he made the night very special. We will be back and will ask for Brad. 10/10

We took my wife to David’s for a Birthday dinner and weren’t disappointed. The steaks were fabulous, tender, and melted in our mouths. The ambiance was lead to good conversation and relaxing dinner. Highly recommend David’s for your fine dining desires.

Service was very professional. Appetizers - escargots and crab cakes - were excellent.
Medium-rare filet was quite rare and lamb chops were okay. Enjoyed out meeting our server and the busser, Jalen, an excellent young man. all ion all, an enjoyable evening.

We really enjoyed the entire dining experience at David’s. The ambience was quiet and socially distant with nice music playing in the background. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. The escargot were plump and wonderfully prepared. Dover sole delectable. Prime rib was good but a bit gristly. Overall, very good and we will return.
