David's Restaurant & Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Dinner and service was outstanding. The night we were there a party of 6 was very loud and rowdy which distracted from our anniversary dinner and we wished management had perhaps asked them to quiet down a bit but they did not.
The atmosphere is beautiful, food was awesome and worth the price. Best scallops I ever had!
Anniversary dinner. Polite and attentive wait staff. Delicious steak like I haven’t had in a very long time. Grilled to my specifications. Warm bread and soft butter. Not that just out of the fridge clumps on your bread stuff. I wish they were closer to St. Augustine. I would definitely be a regular. Next time I’m in Fernandina, I will make a reservation.
The Delmonico steak was terrible and WAY overpriced! Was 44 dollars and supposed to be top 1% of all prime steaks. Not even close! Have had much better ribeyes at Longhorn and Outback for half the price!! Also was not cooked right. Ordered medium rare and half was cooked more medium and other half almost tare-tare. Steak was also less than a quarter inch thick. What a waste of money!!!
There is a lobster special on Wednesday; last Wed. was our 42d anniversary. On the menu (but not the website) there was a note that for the special, quantities are limited. Our reservation was at 7pm and already the lobster was gone. Honestly, when I used the lavatory and walked past most of the tables, I saw two lobster dinners. This was very disappointing.
If I were David's I wouldn't advertise a special with such limited quantities. The service
was very good and our server tried to make it up to us. Honestly, if we hadn't already ordered a bottle of wine, we would have left.
If you like to be "served" when you go out for dinner then you have to go to David's. The ambience of the restaurant provides a relaxed atmosphere with emphasis on excellent food and service. For a special occasion, splash out with the King Alaskan crab. The perfectly cooked and presented 8.5 lb crab was plenty for 4 hungry people or 5 smaller appetites. The wedge salad was delicious with an added touch of caramelized onions and the dover sole is another must try. Finish by breaking that diet with one of the delicious desserts. We have tried three but by far the best is the salted caramel cheesecake--superb.
We began in the bar for Happy Hour. Our waiter was very friendly, courteous and efficient. From there we went to the dining room. The ambiance was nice but the booth was a little hard to get in and out of. Our dinner was excellent! The best beet salad I have EVER eaten. We ordered 5 different dishes and each was delicious. The staff was very friendly and efficient. It made for a perfect anniversary dinner.
Adored this place!! Great atmosphere, great service and the food was absolutely cooked to perfection!! The crab bisque was over-the-top delicious. The scallops were perfectly cooked and the sea bass was melting in our mouths! Will definitely be back when we return to Amelia Island. Thank you for making our last dinner on the island the best one of the week!
Celebrated our anniversary here. I had the Filet and Crab Bisque. My wife had the Sea Bass and a salad. The food was prepared properly and tasted great. The service from our waiter Ryan, was spot on and the restaurant is very comfortable. It is a little pricy but for what you get worth it for a special occasion. We would return.
While an "upscale" restaurant, missing great customer service. Bartender did warm up after 10 minutes, waitstaff was not up to par with what an upscale restaurant should be. We don't expect to be the first in but 3rd waited on finally. Second waiter took plate away without asking if we wanted it boxed, main waiter kept on saying "wonderful", steaks dry with little flavor, 1/2 spinach salad was a joke (3 bites) and while exiting host didn't bother to acknowledge our leaving. We will take a Longhorn restaurant over David's for a heck of a lot cheaper! Wouldn't recommend this restaurant and when we do visit Amelia Island again, David's will NOT be repeated!!!
We have had a wonderful dinner at David's last fall, and remembered the best selling point was the King Crab dish for several people.
We were doing a last minute get away to the area to support a friend in a triathlon.
Made reservations and we enjoyed the 6 lbs of Alaska King Crab !
Service was above and beyond and the food was fabulous.
We knew we would be very full with the Crab so kept side dishes to a minimum, the garlic mashed potatoes and broccolini were well prepared and was just enough to compliment the main dish.
Only disappointment was the creme brule, I had it last fall and it was wonderful this dish seem to be a little off, but still had no problem finishing it.
Simply put: David's was divine. The service (thank you Taylor) was outstanding. Even the young man, Colby, who replenished the wonderful bread in the box,was charming. Our food was outstanding and the ambiance for our anniversary was perfect. The menu was very special and I needed some special dietary requests that were taken care of most graciously. can't wait to return.
We had a wonderful evening with our guests as the atmosphere, service and food were all top notch. That said, what impressed us the most didn't even take place at our table. In the booth across from us a guest unfortunately spilled his water glass across the table and into his lap. Without hesitation, the service team swept in to help the gentleman and re-sat them at a nearby booth quickly moving their meals without a scene. The gentleman's food was not affected, they proceeded with their meal and the table staff quickly and quietly removed the dishes and replaced the table for the next guests. Very impressive!
We had been to David's one time before and this time was equally as nice. The service was excellent, the food was very good and prepared perfectly. The ambiance was great. David's is one of the few upscale American restaurants with good food and service with the perfect ambiance. This is hard to find but greatly appreciated!!
