Each aspect of the atmosphere and food preparation was at the level of perfection. My son and I were celebrating his start in a new career and we couldn’t have been more pleased. The ribeye and filet were amazingly tender and delicious while our server, Ryan was completely attentive and conscientious and the dining room ambience was second to none. The price was very fair for this incredible meal, and we had uninterrupted time to enjoy each other’s company. I am so grateful to David’s for this special experience before my son and I say farewell for a time.

The quality of the food and service were very good. I would recommend to anyone for a nice evening. I wish it had more of a sense of place. I really didn't feel any connection to Fernandina Beach. The menu, the appearance inside, could be anywhere.

We had an excellent experience at David's this evening, as usual. The food was wonderful, the service was attentive without being intrusive and the ambience was very nice. It's expensive but well worth the money.

We had high expectations for this restaurant and they were exceeded. We were in town for a quick vacation. Everything was outstanding from the hot bread to the cold dessert. We ordered most of the server’s recommendations. The chocolate torte is one of the best desserts I’ve ever had in my long life. Too rich to finish at dinner it was just outstanding the next day.

The setting was very moving! We were celebrating a 70th birthday and felt very special as a group! The menu was varied and had many great choices! The specials were described very well and all questions were answered easily! The attention to detail stood out! Plenty of time was given between courses! We were not rushed at all. We even got to freshen our palates which does not happen very often! Great evening!

We enjoyed David's so much that we ate there two nights in a row. The first night we didn't have a reservation so found a spot at the bar. The drinks - blueberry lemon martini and lemon drop martini - were delicious as was the food. We enjoyed the beef carpaccio, caesar salad, scallops, filet, and chocolate torte. The second night, we had a reservation for my husband's birthday. The dining room was beautiful, romantic, and classy. The food again was amazing with the grilled octopus special appetizer, rack of lamb, filet with truffle butter, and salted caramel gelato. They included a chef's muse tasting, intermezzo palate cleansing sorbet, and chocolate dipped strawberries with the meal. The highlight of the night was our waiter Ryan who was one of the best waiters we have ever had... pleasant, professional, and attentive. He made the night awesome. We will definitely be back if in the area again.

On vacation in Amelia Island and selected David’s for one of our dining nights. It was a tremendous experience! The atmosphere is very cool and romantic. Candles sporadically imbedded in the stacked stone walls. Dim lighting. Snug booths down each side of the restaurant with tables down the middle. Definitely select a booth which offers more privacy.

Our waitress was off the charts wonderful. We chose a bottle of the Willamette Winery Pinot Noir which paired perfectly with our appetizer - octopus...and entrees - Chilean sea bass and truffle scallops. The food was something you would have in the finest big city restaurants. Plate presentations were works of art.

Kudos to the chef and the entire team. Final note, David’s is pricey. However, worth it and we’re so glad we dined there! As an option, they do have a “just as cool” bar and lounge area.
