We have been dining at this establishment for many years... David & staff are always attentive to customer needs... The menu is consistently second to none... Try it, you won’t be disappointed.

David’s Bistro lived up to all the reviews. Reasonable for the quality of the food and wine and personal service. A very pleasant surprise for us as visitors to London. Elk strip loin and risotto certainly was of top quality and presentation

Stopped by David's Bistro. I'm speachless. Nice and warm people, served by David himself. Moderate prices for superb food and I'm going out on a limb here, claiming its the best meal I've ever had. Atmosphere was perfect. I recommend David's anytime over any place
