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!!!

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.

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!
