David's Restaurant & Lounge Ratings and Reviews

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.

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.

David's never disappoints! The service is superb and the food is also. My wife loves the Chilean sea bass and the Delmonico ribeye is my favorite. The interior of the restaurant is elegant, comfortable and warm. I would recommend this restaurant especially for those special occasions but also for any evening when you just want an excellent meal!

David's was the perfect place to celebrate our Anniversary. We wanted someplace in Fernandina that we hadn't been before and David's was perfect. We loved the quaint bar and Glenn was a great bartender. We talked about wine and had made a decision prior to going to our table. We would definitely dine in the bar as well. When we were seated Michael introduced himself as our waiter and we hit it off from the get go! His personality was great and he knew the menu inside and out. David's had a good crowd for a Sunday night at 8:30 but we felt like we had the restaurant to ourselves. The food was exceptional. I had the Dover Sole and my husband had the scallops. Every bite was delicious. We both opted for the mushroom risotto and it was yummy from the first bite. The crab bisque was also a winner. We will definitely go back. It was a winner from the minute we walked in the door.

Once again David's Restaurant was a tremendous experience. All aspects of the experience, the food, service and atmosphere were top notch. The BEST restaurant in North Florida. It's worth the 1 hour trip each way.

David 's was perfect for my husband's 40th birthday dinner date. It was sexy, it was beautiful, the food was good, the service was great. We started out with a of wine. I enjoyed little unexpected personal chef touches such as the little spoons of raspberry sorbet "to cleanse your palate" as we were told. The seafood caprese salad is a must have. My husband ordered a half as an appetizer, it was so delicious ! The lamb chops were delicious ,we ordered them medium..wish they had a little more char on the outside but very good. Asparagus was tender flavorful. I had the scallops with truffle butter which the outside appeared a little too charred but were surprisingly excellent my only disappointment was the $8 crabcake i added on. The flavor was good but it was way too small for the price and it was backin not lump. We finished with the creme brulee and the apple pie which were good as well. Great food and great overall value. I woukd definitely visit again if I return to Jacksonville .

My husband and I enjoyed our date night at David's. The soup was divine and my filet was tender but cooked more like medium rare than rare. The half salad is only a few bites so will order the whole salad next time. Special touches like sorbet between courses and chocolate dipped strawberries at the end. The only thing I didn't like was we were seated in the back room right beside a table of young children which is what we were trying to escape on our date night away from our own children. Would have preferred to be in the main dining area.
The servers were attentive.
Will most definitely return to David's.

We visited Amelia Island on our vacation with our two daughters (6 & 11). We always look for restaurants with great food and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was very relaxing and we received great service. It was a little dark and a little too romantic for us only because we had our children with us. The food was delicious and the kids menu wasn't a disappointment either. The complimentary valet parking was nice as well as the gentleman parking the vehicles. It's a great place for a romantic date and great food. We will definitely eat here again when we return.

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.
