I had always considered David’s was a 10. Unfortunately I can only give it a 9 now. Things that have changed no sherbet, the. No Olathe on the strawberries was so frozen I couldn’t bit it to them and finally nobody said goodbye as we left. Very unlike the David’s that I tell everyone is my favorite restaurant.

Great ambiance as soon as you walk in the door! Reminds me of dining out years ago as a kid and established family-owned restaurants. Food was excellent and service was outstanding. Not overly intrusive, server and staff showed just when needed. Steak and lobster tail cooked to perfection. Chocolate-covered strawberries at the end of the meal were a welcomed surprise!

Wow is all I can say. Martinis were amazing, food was incredible, service was outstanding, ambiance was perfect. They had a special on a fish I’ve never even heard of called sheepshead. The sheepshead fish special is now literally my favorite dish and my favorite fish! My wife had the rack of lamb and it was to die for. Had an amazing date night with my wife and we both look forward to coming back!

A top shelf dining experience in every way. The octopus appetizer made me cry, the filet made Ruth Chris seem like hamburger. Whole family had similar reactions. Expensive, but not overpriced like the NYC restaurants I’m used to. I wish they’d move to NJ.

David's was very good but if you like large portions eat elsewhere! The creme brule was outstanding. Service was great and the atmosphere was friendly.

We are regular customers at David's. They did not disappoint the time. I had the beef carpaccio to start and hubby had octopus. Both were very good, but the octopus was particularly outstanding this time around. We added a small beet salad to round off our apps. My filet was cooked perfectly and I paired with the mashed potatoes (don't even think about your diet) while hubby had the special -- tilefish. Filet is always tender, tasty, and cooked exactly as ordered with a red wine reduction sauce. Tilefish was served in a puttanesca sauce. Great combination of flavors. Wait staff are attentive without being overbearing. Ambience is perfect for date night and we love the new screens as they make the booths even more private. Can't wait for our next visit.

Very nice place. Food was good, just a little pricing for what you get. Our service was good, but we had experienced better service at other local restaurants that were not as expensive. Would definitely recommend for romantic dinner.

Perfect venue for a delicious Easter dinner. The New Zealand rack of lamb was superb and perfectly complemented by a nice Croze Hermitage wine from the Rhone valley. Our server, Ryan, was courteous, prompt and professional. All in all, a very nice evening indeed.

Enjoyed our dinner at Davids. Complimentary valet parking. Enjoyed the caprese bite, sorbet and chocolate covered strawberry that came with our meal....nice touch. Food was excellent! The halibut special was a favorite as well as the sea bass. For dessert the chocolate cake and caramel cheesecake were delicious. Nice atmosphere. Slightly pricey but the food was very good.

This was a great experience! The food was absolutely delicious (best sea bass I had all week - maybe ever!). The service was the best we had all week, they were always there but you didn't know they were there... They provided a very memorable dinner. Highly recommend David's for a special dinner.

We had high expectations and ended up being underwhelmed. The service wasn’t great. Our server never checked on us after our food was delivered. He was sat with a large party, but that should not have interfered with our experience. Unfortunately it did though.

Our evening was absolutely perfect! We had a reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server did an outstanding job. The food was to die for, our steaks were cooked to perfection, crab cakes appetizer were the best! The drinks were mixed beautifully and the caramel cheese cake was like heaven!

We have enjoyed dinner on several visits to Fernandina Beach. It is our favorite restaurant on the island. Service, food ambiance are all the best. The complimentary appetizer, palate cleanser and after dinner treats are found only at the very best high end restaurants. We include Davids in this category. Thanks to all the staff for a wonderful dinner experience.
