    Poor quality meat (claimed to be prime). It also was not served hot. Escargot had no flavor. Dessert came to me frozen solid, right out of the freezer. Beet salad was okay but had about three tiny pieces of beet and a lot of lettuce. Drinks very watery with mainly ice. Not worth the prices charged and did not live up to the claims. Very Disappointing Meal.

    Everything was excellent, drinks, apps, entrees, wine selection, all was excellent. Our server was knowledgeable, courteous and did a great job! The only drawback was being seated in the back room next to a large party of ten that was very loud and another table of four with small children. The last time the six of us were there, we were seated in the main dining area which is much nicer with more ambiance than this over flow backroom. Despite that, I believe David's is head and shoulders over everything else in Fernandina and Amelia. Truly in a league of its own.

    Wrong food served to one person, then all food taken away to go to another table. Returned after some time with some food for one person but not the other. Food again taken away to be served again once food for both in party was ready. Food not cooked properly and soup was served cold with a large shrimp tail shell still in the soup. No manager came by to apologize or try to correct the situation. Did not expect this level of service for the upscale menu prices.

    This was my third time at David’s. The amount of food you get for your money is overpriced. The taste of the food was good. Just wasn’t enough for 48.00 and 45.00.

    For my husband’s birthday, I planned the trip from SC to Fernandina Beach. For the big birthday meal I selected David’s (from what I found on a Google search.) I called the concierge at Elizabeth Pointe Lodge where we would be saying, asking her opinion. She confirmed that David’s was the best fine dining on the island. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

    My wife and I came down to Fernandina from Savannah for her birthday. We always eat at David’s when in town. We’ve never been disappointed. She had the filet and I had the Dover sole. Both were cooked to perfection. The filet was fork tender and delicious. We finished everything off with dessert and after dinner drinks.Another great dinner at David’s.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary the night we dined at David’s and they had a signed card on our table waiting for us and even put a happy anniversary chocolates on our desserts. We will definitely be back the next time we visit Fernandina Beach.

    I celebrated my birthday at David's with my husband. The food was outstanding. I enjoyed the surf and turf and my husband liked his bouillabase seafood medley. The ambiance is very elegant. Our server was not the most attentive but because everyone pitches in, the team made our night special.

    My first time at David's and We were treated like old valued customers. We were a bit early, so we waited in the lounge for drinks. The Martini's were perfect and that began our beautiful dinning experience. I had the melt in your mouth tender short ribs and my wife had the grilled scallops. We said, almost simultaneously, "this is one the best".

    The food was delicious from start to finish, and the service was excellent. Think the restaurant environment could use a refresh, but the value for food and drinks was very reasonable, and it was high level dining without being too overly ostentatious. A very enjoyable experience and would absolutely recommend.

    Service was not up to normal David’s reputation. Little attention was paid to our table of 3. At one point we asked for a dessert menu and waited 20 minutes as our server never looked our way. We ultimately complained to a manager at host stand and were offered free desserts. We were very disappointed overall.

    First off let me say what a beautiful restaurant for a special occasion, the ambiance is wonderful. That’s where it stops. This is supposedly a dressy place requiring long pants and a button down shirt for men or buiness casual. It was our anniversary so we were excited to be in a nice place and dress up. Well the gentlemen next to us had shorts, sandals and a y-shirt. The gentleman behind us had on a baseball cap. I loose all respect for such a nice restaurant when they do not uphold their dress code. The food for the money was just ok. I don’t mind paying a lot for a meal when the quality is there. My green beans which were the vegetable of the night were almost raw barely blanched and not seasoned at all. We would definitely not return such a shame because the atmosphere is beautiful.
