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.

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.

Loved the complementary valet parking as it was raining. Crab cakes were delish. Husband thought there was too much cheese on escargot but it didn’t detract from taste. Prime rib outstanding & seafood pasta was awesome. Loved everything about our experience and the wait staff was very professional. We look forward to returning!

Everything on the menu is always cooked perfectly, never over (or under!) seasoned, and delicious!! Try the filet, you won’t be disappointed ;-) We come to David’s for most special occasions and have never been disappointed. It’s “expensive”, but I don’t consider it over-priced. For the quality of food and service, its pretty much exactly what I would expect to spend. We have always been really satisfied with our experience!

Amazing 35th anniversary dinner at David’s! The decor and ambiance was calming and tranquil . They had throw pillows in our booths and indirect lighting along the wall set a romantic mood. A card was at our table,, nice touch. Our server was Shawn, who was attentive and knowledgeable. We were given a tasty appetizer bite which was cheese and tomatoes with balsamic glaze with our bread which was brought in a box. We both had the spinach salad with warm bacon vinaigrette, which was delicious. My husband had the Delmonico 1855 Ribeye and I had the Filet Mignon, both were well seasoned and cooked to medium rare perfection! We both agreed that this was one of the best steaks we had ever eaten. At the end of our meal, we were brought chocolate covered strawberries -just right to end our special meal. Read and heard that the Columbian chef was one of the best and we totally agree!

David's is a local treasure for both special occasion dining and, well, the quality of the food and service makes any meal a special occasion.

The food is impeccable, menu choices are ample and the wait staff is very courteous, professional and attentive. Overall, the restaurant provides an understated elegance. It's a very comfortable place.

Prices are commensurate with the quality. Highly recommended.

The experience at David's was incredible from the ambiance food staff and all the way around. The prices actually we're not bad considering the type of restaurant it is. I would give this restaurant 10 stars if I could. If you haven't been to Davids please take the time to go and check it out. Also where it is located is blocks away from historic Fernandina Beach and the ocean. Great place and if you go ask for Zach. Zach is very knowledgeable with everything on the menu and will not disappoint with his recommendations to.
