Very nice steaks and pasta. Escargot and Cesar salads were also excellent. Service was first rate , and decor was pleasant and classy. For travelers staying on Amelia Island , this spot is a must! We stayed at the Ritz and it's only a short drive away. We tried quite a few restaurants , and David's was our top find !

This is a very nice place to celebrate Anniversaries, Birthdays and any other special occasions. Service was wonderful and we never felt rushed. Food was amazingly good, the best steak I've had in a long time! Dessert was "off the chain"!! We will definitely return!

Went for our 40th anniversary on the recommended from our children. We were not disappointed. From the welcoming at the Valot parking the entire evening was amazing.
Will go back again soon. Not going to wait for a special occasion.

We were very pleased with the very polite, very attentive and very knowledgeable waitstaff as well as the exceptional food. Two of our party started with soup, one a seasonal special and the other the more standard Lobster Bisque, both of which were simply delicious. One of my sons and I had steaks, which were done to perfection, while my wife and another son had fish. Admittedly, the fish portions was a little small for the price (and for my 6" 2', 220 lb son), but what was there was prepared perfectly. And they were most accommodating when we ordered "off menu" due to dietary restrictions. Special mention must also be made of the mushrooms that accompanied my Delmonico Steak; I don't know exactly how they were prepared, but they were almost addictive. Overall, very high marks. I will be returning, and am looking forward to it.

My wife and I enjoyed a quiet and enjoyable dinner here. The menu was varied and deep - you don't see Dover Sole on too many menus. Professional service, dining room was quieter than many, booth seating, and a lovely wine list. We will be back.

David's is an upscale restaurant with a modern decor of faux rock walls and large banquette seating. The service was very good but more than a little bit too attentive. I believe they were trying to achieve an atmosphere of opulence and luxury but too much attention can be overdone. I would still rate the service as very good. The wine list went from moderate to very expensive, but with enough choices. The food was outstanding. We started with a pumpkin bisque and had seared scallops for our main course. Every bite was just bliss. We were looking for a special dinner that night and it achieved that.

a lovely place-- larger than it appears from the outside with nice ambiance. the wait staff is impeccable and if you can get your water glass below 2/3 full-- it means you're a quick drinker.
the food was great-- the only exception is the soup (pumpkin/butternut squash) was almost bland.
I would recommend and I will return

Traditional fine dining with greet ambience, service, and steak/seafood. Loved the fish cake appetizer and mushroom risotto. The steaks cooked to order, bread like eating desert. Wine options also exceptional. Perfect evening!

We enjoyed the decor and had an amazing server. The escargot was good and tender, not the best we have had, but not enough to lose a point. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and full of flavor. I even enjoyed the asparagus and I am not a fan of that vegetable. A wonderful meal with good ambiance and the ability to chat together without raising our voices. This was our first visit and looking forward to our next visit.

I have dined at David's many times over the years, and this was one of the best visits. It was quiet on the night that I visited, and they took very good care of us. The food couldn't have been better, and I look forward to returning.

Resturante was amazing except I found a rolled up piece of, either plastic or butcher paper in my crab chowder. It ended up in my mouth. I pulled it out of my mouth, unrolled it and placed it on the side of the bowl so the chef could figure out what it was. I understand that these things happen, so I didn't make a big issue of it but, totally expected the resturante to take it off of my bill. I even asked my server if the chef had seen it and if they had figured out what it was. Totally disapointed that no one from the management team even came over to the table after it happened.

We went to David's to celebrate my husband's milestone birthday and were very pleased with our experience. We had just moved to Fernandina Beach, so this was our first time dining here. We loved the mood created by the uplighting on the stacked stone walls and the sounds of the fountain in the background. White tablecloths, attentive waitstaff, soft background music, and delicious food, all made for a very lovely celebration.

A superb gem in Fernandina. Delicious food , great atmosphere and an all around lovely evening. We didn't know what to expect in this quant area and what we got was big city excellence within a stones throw of the ocean. High marks!!!

We have been to David's several times over the past few years and it is has been consitently good. We were very disappointed that there is no longer entertainment in the lounge. We were very much looking forward to it. David's is what we would call a 'high end' restaurant but worth the money for a special occasion.

David's gave us the perfect dining experience, Mark our server was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. If we could move David's to our area we would so we could go more often. Without a doubt the best restaurant in the area!

Patrick our server was wonderful . My husband got the beet salad it was very good and would recommend it highly, My sister in law got the chicken marsala and loved it my husband got salmon asked for it rare it came medium but was good my brother in law and I got the new york strips menu said 14 oz bone in prime it was not 14 ounces and grissely definitely not worth the price. Sister in law got creme brulle it was wonderful. will not be back extremely overpriced for the quality of the food

A stellar experience! It was our first time eating at this restaurant. We were celebrating our anniversary and the food, service and ambiance were all excellent. I had prime rib and my husband had the rib eye- both fabulous and we shared the seafood and mozzarella cold appetizer- it was amazing! We will definitely be back!

My husband had the Oscar Steak and he fed me a few bites of it. It was to both of us the BEST and most amazing food experience either one of us has ever had. The steak was like butter and the flavors with the crab and sauce were amazing...not to mention the baby red potatoes mashed to perfection. I had a salad and the soup of the day which were also excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and provided great service with very little wait time for our meal and drinks. We will definitely recommend David's to all our friends and family and will be visiting here again soon! Thanks for an amazing 20th Anniversary!!!

We went to Fernandina Beach for a romantic weekend getaway, and David's was the perfect special meal. The food was extra-special--well prepared, delicious and beautiful. Highly recommend for a special date night!

First class experience all-around. From the atmosphere to the decor, to our waiter Patrick, to the food, the entire experience was exceptional and absolutely first class. They have managed to create an atmosphere that is formal without being stuffy, which few restaurants are able to achieve successfully. The food was superb and each course was perfectly prepared. Both my wife and I ordered steaks which were cooked to perfection and exactly as we had requested. This is one of the more formal, if not THE most formal of all the restaurants in the historic downtown area of Amelia island. If you are looking for a more high-end place to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary, this is it! I would not recommend bringing children unless they were exceptionally well behaved (which counts me out).

David's restaurant is one of the best on Amelia Island. We (H&W) split an enjoyable beet salad ($14). The entre included scallops which were perfectly cooked and so good ($74). A bottle of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay, Russian River ($48). The walls in the main dining are a type of white colored masonry that presents an unusual and striking interior. The place is quiet. The server, Billie Jo, was excellent.

I had the steak, which was very tasty, while my wife and daughter shared a shrimp and pasta dish which included lobster, shrimp and mussels. My wife ordered a spinach salad which was warm, but not cooked. While I am not fond of cooked spinach, I have to admit that this salad was wonderful. In addition to sharing her mom's meal, our daughter ordered cooked spinach, which she shared with our 7 month old grandson. Appearantly, he doesn't share his grandfathers distaste for cooked spinach since he resented his mothers occasional taste. Unfortunately my son-in-law was work bound, and unable to join us.
The service was great as well as a totally enjoyable meal. Highly recommended.

A truly First Class dining experience. Beautiful design of the interior dining area. Expansive and impressive menu selections. Its apparent that the Chef(s) have perfected their blends of ingredients, spices, etc. Our server, Michael, was a true professional and a gentleman. Very knowledgeable, gracious, and accommodating...but never intrusive. He made some modifications to a couple of menu items to best suit my guest, and these were at his suggestion after listening to her express what she wanted. Not on busy Centre St, nor on the super casual beach side.....right in the middle. A short and simple drive with ample parking. Thanks to the entire staff at David's for the incredible experience.
