The whole experience was very satisfying. From the friendly greeting when we walked in through the door thru the meal. Great evening.
Great food and amazing service. Perfect for date night!
David's is a great spot in Portland. the food is consistently always good. 3rd or 4th time there.
Food and service was perfection, as usual. We would be eating out more often, but for the COVID. We were treating ourselves! DAVIDS is never a disappointment!
Dinner was amazing!
Great social distancing precautions. Amazing food! Support our local business!
The food here is fantastic! During these challenging times for restaurants, David’s does a great job both inside and out to keep diners and staff safe. The staff is friendly, the food is so delicious and the ambiance is spot on. Love this place!
Everything was perfect. Service and food were excellent. However, we were one of only two parties in the place and we had called earlier to ask if we could make our reservations any later. We were told that we could not. When we left over an hour after our reservation, there were still no other parties. We wish that had gone a bit differently. This won’t stop us from returning, though, because it was one of the best meals we have had in a very long time!
Service was incredible
Everything was fine. The servers seemed bored. The restaurant was clean enough but not sparkling. I wanted to order grilled chicken for my salad but the server went quickly to my husband before I could continue my order. She promptly walked away. I never got a chance to say, “Excuse me, please”. My kick tail was delicious, however.
I just wish we’d had a window seat as the only diners .... food was fantastic
We recently moved back to Maine and were celebrating our anniversary and decided to have lunch at David's. We sure made the right decision! The chowder that my husband ordered was the best we have had anywhere. The potato pizza was HUGE and we had two other meals out of it later on. The server was great and we felt very comfortable during this Covid time by dining inside. We will go back!
Everything was amazing and the meat loaf is a must try!
The meatloaf was amazing!!
Had a nice dinner outside on the patio. Great, attentive service. Ordered the seared ahi and duck with the calamari appetizer. Everything was nicely prepared and presented with good flavors. Nothing was mind blowing or over the top for food, which still means we very much enjoyed our meal. Prices are reasonable, which is refreshing. Overall a wonderful experience for dinner. Definitely recommend!
First time dining here. The open face lobster ravioli was outstanding. Attentive staff. Looked really nice inside when I went to use the restroom. We dined outdoors as we aren't ready for indoor experiences with COVID around. However, would very much like to return.
Fish was over cooked - sadly
The food was excellent and I had no complaints and would definitely come again!
Nice ambience, quiet by the window. Food was very good, we enjoyed everything. Highly recommend, also recommend reservations with COVID.
This was the 5th time my wife and I have eaten at David’s. The food is always 5 out of 5; excellent; great job, kitchen. When we sat at the Chef’s counter, service was great. Sat at the bar: great service. Twice in the dining room we have had god-awful service. The first time was with a female who claimed to be a FOH manager. If that was the case, she still has a lot to learn. This most recent time, our server could not have been less interested, or polite, or courteous. She really looked like she would rather be ANY other place than serving my wife and I. We sat for way too long before we were even asked if we wanted drinks, considering we were only the third table in this woman’s section on a VERY slow Friday evening. My wife and I will not be dining at David’s again unless it is at the Chef’s table. Such a shame for a place with truly excellent food.
Absolutely amazing. Could not recommend anymore! The food was absolutely to die for. The staff was so kind and considerate. Such great covid measures. Thank you to this restaurant!
You guys had a Guiness umbrella on the patio, but I could not get even a bottle of Guiness. That somewhat disappointed me,
The food was absolutely beyond incredible!! My taste buds went on a ride. So delicious and fresh and perfect flavor!!
Incredible. Food and drinks were amazing as was the atmosphere. Quiet, romantic setting in a convenient location. Extremely attentive to allergies and the chef modified anything he could to accommodate.
Great food. Had the salmon which was amazing. Garlic knots are excellent.
Celebrated my son's 18th birthday at David's on a Saturday evening soon after they re-opened the doors for indoor dining. Everyone's meal choice was absolutely delicious. Our server was great and followed covid-19 protocal perfectly. We felt very comfortable. My only regret was not leaving room for dessert!
Food and service were excellent when we had dinner here recently. We sat outside and you never know what will be happening in Monument Square. There was a political rally so it was noisy but it did not keep us from enjoying dinner with friends. Highly recommend the haddock with lobster dish! Delicious and it was so pretty too! They are taking great care with all the Covid precautions so we felt safe here.
Food was delicious and service was excellent! Definitely recommend.
Delicious lobster ravioli and baked cod!
The vegetables and sides were good, however, the Garlic Knots were stale, and the filet mignon was the super fatty, stringy, and chewy. Worst filet I’ve ever had unfortunately. Service was good, and they didn’t charge for the filets we couldn’t eat more than a bite or two of, so props for that. Next time I think I’d stick to seafood here.
Felt safe and comfortable
