David's Restaurant & Lounge Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I dined here during our first trip to Amelia Island last week. It was the best meal either of us has ever had! We started with the Chilean sea bass cake special which was absolutely delicious. I had the fillet Oscar, which had crab on top, and my husband had a fillet with a blue cheese crust. The bread came in a cute box that helped keep it warm. We also had creme Brulé for dessert and the waiter brought over 2 chocolate covered strawberries as a surprise. Amazing! Our server, Patrick, did an awesome job. I would come back to Amelia Island just to go to David's one more time and I live three hours away!

Davids has always been one of our favorite places anywhere for an upscale experience. We make it a point to eat here whenever our travels find us anywhere near Amelia island. Unfortunately I have to say that this last trip thru did not warrant the usual 5 star review rating we had grown accustomed to at Davids. Don't know if it was a change in manager or chef or personnel but for some reason this was not one of those over and above evenings. Service was good. Food was good but some of our diners commented on lack of seasoning. Steak was just okay. Quite a bit of gristle in the strip. Seemed to be an almost Oh well sorry about that here's your check response. The sea bass and scallops were excellent, hence the 4 stars.

I choose this restaurant for our 20th anniversary surprise (2 hours away from us), and was not disappointed. We arrived early and was seated in the lounge, where we were graciously taken care of until our table was ready. Billie Jo was our main server, while Jon served us bread and Taylor our drinks. All were very courteous, professionally dressed and attended to our every need. We chose and split the 16oz Rib eye that was accompanied by garlic mashed red potatoes and steamed broccoli. The meal was superb. We topped it off with crème brulee and Billie Jo surprised us with strawberries dipped in dark Godiva chocolate. The staff of David’s even provided us with a congratulations card personally signed. Our evening was perfect, and we highly recommend.

Vacationed in AI and relied on online reviews for dining out with older teens. Expensive for teens/everyday, but it was vacation and my kids are great eaters and appreicate a nicer meal too. My kids LOVED their meals (both got steak) and my fish was great. We started with Brie and a seafood caprese salad. Saw couples and groups. Friendly and very attentive waiters/servers. Would definitely recommend. Close to main drag for a nice walk after dinner.

We were on vacation in Amelia Island and it was the best dining experience we could have had . Our waiter Michael was great ! Very well knowledgeable in the wine list and food . We visited two times in one week. My favorite place on the Island ! Thank you for making our experience one to remember. ! We want Michael every time we visit !

David's never disappoints! Salmon special was done to perfection & the staff was, as usual, very respectful of our privacy & choose the right moments to check in on us. Great atmosphere, great food. Only thing missing was smooth jazz/blues coming from the lounge.

We had a bad dining experience at David's. It came highly recommended but did not live up to anything we heard about it. It was a slow night, but it took 30 min to put in an order and receive cocktails. Waiter actually argued with me that it was impossible to get a medium steak with no red! Our bread and salads were great, but Filet and Dover sole didn't even look appetizing, much less have any flavor. Perhaps we caught them on a REALLY bad night, but with all of the wonderful restaurants on Amelia Island we won't take the chance to try David's again. We paid cash for our meal and were sitting in the booth waiting for our cab (it was raining) when the waiter returned with our change. He came back a few minutes later and asked if that would be all, then picked up the check holder (with his cash tip) and walked off. I can't say we've ever had anyone pick up their tip before we left a restaurant, this doesn't even happen in Cracker Barrel!

This restaurant was awesome. Every part of our experience was amazing. The service from our waiter "Mike" was impeccable. The food was delectable. Anytime that we are vacationing in the area, this restaurant will be one of our staples.

My wife and I were in Fernandina Beach recently and had dinner at David's. This is our favorite restaurant in Fernandina and we always have it on our "must do" list while in the area. The steaks are always cooked to perfection and the other dishes are as well. We love the bananas foster for dessert and can hardly finish it. We always end the evening at the bar for after dinner drinks where we are always greeted by the bar tenders as if we were old friends.
If you ever find yourself in the area, I would highly recommend a stop at David's. You wont be disappointed.

Great first visit..this time very disappointed .food was ok..service was awful.when I complained to the "manager"I was pacified and dismissed.for the money we paid for dinner I would not recommend this restaurant nor would I return.

Our evening at David's was fantastic! Our waiter was fantastic and provided exceptional service for us throughout the entire evening. The food was presented quite well and was cooked perfectly for all dishes. The overall atmosphere was great, even with a large private party in a back room that was on the loud side when the door was open.
We have already recommended David's to some other guests at the lodge we were staying at and will happily return in the future!

Started out well, but took a downer when they served the escargot. Yuk! Tasteless! Ate a couple, set the remainder back. Bread was not great, but above average. Spread as good. Entrees were quite good. Wife had filet & I had sea bass. Mashed potatoes (Truffle infused) were delicious. Celebrating our anniversary so they presented us with a "happy" card signed by the staff, and whoopie, a chocolate covered strawberry..complementary. Other fine restaurants we have celebrate birthdays and special occasions always do more for the celebration, but not here. In addition to the terrible escargot, a fly landed on by wife's food. Waiter was apologetic, but that's all. I've been to fine dining restaurants in the past that if a fly finds it's way to your food, or any other type of insect invades the meal, all the food would be compted, but not here! That pretty much sums up our anniversary experience. You decide whether or not you want to have as much fun in the restaurant as we did.

Really enjoyed dinner at David's with a close friend. The service was excellent and the food very good. We had two different kinds of steak--both quite tasty and cooked the way we like them. Would definitely recommend to a friend and will be back.

Had a fantastic time and a delicious dinner.
Took the whole family (2 kids - 13 y/o and 9 y/o).
Great choices for the kids (inexpensive) so don't let that stop you from dining here.
Wait staff top notch and very professional.
We were not rushed at all.
Chocolate coverage strawberries for a free dessert - what else can you ask for!

My husband and I wanted a nice romantic dinner to celebrate 30 years of knowing one another. We got just that. Absolutely wonderful place, although the outside of the building isn't the prettiest, the inside is wonderful. And Mark our server was outstanding.

We were vacationing on Amelia Island and found this restaurant on open table. We enjoyed it so much we returned for a second dinner at the end of our trip. The steaks are superb. The second evening I had scallops which were equally well prepared. The staff is very attentive without being intrusive. Excellent place for dinner.

David's was outstanding in every way - we enjoyed our dine from start to finish.
We had a beet salad, linguini & shrimp, bone in NY Strip, tasty risotto blend, and a very nice red and a good white wine. Exceptional service and food.

Another Fabulous dinner at David's. Our party of 6 enjoyed a meal on Fathers Day. The service was outstanding and the God was delicious. Many of us had fish, but there was one lamb and one filet. The specials sounded delicious and my son enjoyed the salmon special. I had sea bass and another in our party had Dover sole. The crab bisque was a bit thicker than I prefer but very tasty. Caesar salads were enjoyed and the crab claw cocktail looked delicious. Definitely recommend!

This wasn't our first time dinning at David's and we are always very satisfied and pleased. It is not cheap restaurant but well worth it, fabulous food, impeccable service and great ambiance. We will have many more happy come backs, so glad we have such gem close to where we live!

David's came highly recommended and turned out to be as pleasureable a dining experience as I could have imagined. We were celebrating my wife's milestone birthday - the staff put my wife on a pedestal, had a birthday card signed by the entire staff at the table upon our arrival....magnificent. Kudo's to an extremely well run elite Dining establishment.
