After waiting over 35 minutes for our food, 4/5 orders were wrong, food was cold, omelettes were greasy and the waitress was non-existent..I had to go find someone to get us more coffee.

Go to McDonald’s instead....

My husband and I went to dinner at David's for our Wedding Anniversary, dinner was delicious. I had the filet mignon which was delicious, it melts in your mouth. My husband had the crab legs, which were delicious as well. Our server Christine was wonderful!! We will be back!!

Everything about our experience at David’s was perfect. The only thing I was not happy about is the fact that they have made quite a few changes to their menu and have removed my favorite entree. However, the chef agreed to make it for me the night I was there. I hope this dish can be made indefinitely!! All in all, I would recommend David’s for a great dining experience.

The day I went to David's ...it was not that busy . Yet the server kinda ignored me and that made me feel a certain type of way.I am a regular fixture at David's..plus they have a upcoming Pairing event ..and no one mentioned it to me..I spend alot in David's and feel like I should be included in offers from normally one of my favorite establishments ... I am a blogger and write articles for the local scene...Not sure who is in charge of these "pairings"but it wod be received well if someone addressed...having people like me come to events can only make your business better ..good press is the greatest form of getting more guest in your restaurant..if you want to add me to your list ..for events ..my name is Allison Roberson...2026525211...I will be waiting for a response...thank you

David’s has great food, a fabulous staff, and stunning decor. Unfortunately, a live musician was performing (screeching) so loudly when I dined there for dinner, I couldn’t hear my company or the staff at the other end of the dining room. I was not the only one complaining; other diners were not happy with the disruption. I spoke to three staff members who agreed with me- the music was too loud for dinner. Don't get me wrong, I love all kinds of music when it is performed in the right context. Most bar/restaurant establishments reserve live performances (not talking soft acoustical/background music) for before and after dinner because it ruins the ambiance. You’ve changed your menu for the better, don’t ruin it by allowing bad performers to drive business away.
p.s.- you can argue that the music was in the corner of the bar far from the restaurant, but then why was it blaring into the restaurant? Either invest in speakers that are positioned to target your bar audience or schedule performers before and after dinner only.

Came for dinner on a Saturday night. They gave us a special table. I loved the Decour of the establishment. Our server Christina was on point, very friendly and helped us navigate through the menu. The cornbread appetizer was very yummy. We also ordered the crispy calamari. I thought there was a bit too much breading but it was still tasty.
My dad ordered the miso salmon and I had the rockfish. Both were outstanding. I also thought for the money the restaurant had great value. Try the peach sangria!

Service was awful. No one knew who was supposed to wait on our table so we waited a very long time to finally get someone to take our order. One person in our party of 4 sent her salad back twice as too salty to eat and it was removed from our bill but she did miss eating dinner. On the positive side, the burgers and fries were delicious so the food deserves better service! The decibel level is loud so you have to speak loudly to be heard.

Order drinks after 30 minutes still hadn't received them. Ask for manager after 20 minutes she never showed up. Ended up leaving without any dinner. Horrible service. Will never go back.

Need to train servers how to approach tables when people are engaged in conversations. You don't just crash in.

Server needed to enunciate and speak up.

Waffles were too cakey, should be more crisp.

Everybody was friendly, just not very sophisticated.

I do not want a reply back from this comment I post about spots and people ..so i think it is always best to stay professional in a job setting..that is besides stellar customer service. #1...negative talk would deter me from coming back...it is highly important that the customer does not know the restaurants problems..feel.free to reply back after all..thanks

Very loud. A little pricey. $34 for a price of sea bass with no sides, no bread, etc. Ordered the giant meatball stuffed with mozzarella and there was less than a dime sized amount of chees in it.
Our server was excellent. The crush sampler was good and priced well.

Been to David's 5 times, what keeps me coming back is the drink Live Crush, 3 for $18, all very refreshing and taste really good, with a little kick. A party of 4, we had a 5:30pm reservation, arrived 15 minutes early, the greeters were familiar that we had made a reservation, immediately validated our valet parking and let us know that our 2 guests had not arrived but seated us right away and offered to get us cocktails/appetizers while waiting. Christine our server was attentive, pleasant and very knowledgeable about the menu, everything she recommended was delicious, we had the crab dip and calamari as appetizers. Then, for dinner we had the Miso salmon, Rock Fish Imperial and Hot and Sour Sea Bass, all excellent dishes, this was by far my best dining experience at David's, thanks to Christine who delivered outstanding service and of course the food was excellent.

Food was delicious and wait staff was very attentive. We dined on a Sunday evening and there were plenty of open tables. I would suggest parking at the Costco adjacent to the Casino to avoid a longer walk from one of the Casino garages. I ordered the Giant Meatball and Spaghetti, my wife got the BLT, we also ordered the cornbread appetizer. Live music set a good mood, and was the right volume. Host staff was pleasant. We will definitely return.

I order the mussels instead of 2 pounds of steamed shrimp thinking the shrimp would be too much to eat but only about 20 mussels and served with no bread was a bit of a let down. The flavors were good. I had to ask for more water. I will not be returning.

The service was extremely slow. From the moment of arrival, there was no one at the front desk with multiple parties in line waiting. The front desk could only deal with acknowledging one person at a time and disappeared for an unusually long time between seating each party. Then came the wait for a waiter. 20 min with no hello. The waiter, Brian, was odd, stand-offish, and distracted. He ended up berating the customer sitting next to us, which was extremely uncomfortable. We didn’t ever get our drinks, and one person completely finished their meal before the others got a meal. Paying the bill was awkward with pieces of paper shoved at us - no little booklet to present. Overall, we live nearby and were hoping for a new brunch place. This won’t be it.

We went to David's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Right from the beginning we felt welcome, the greeter was very friendly and our server was awesome. The cocktails were the reason we wanted to try this place and we were NOT disappointed! Our food was out of this world also. Considering all that we got (cocktails, appetizers, entrees and dessert) or bill was surprisingly reasonable. We will definitely be dining here again!

Service was slow. We ordered a bunch of appetizers- crab dip was good, oyster shooters- don't waste your time and crab bisque- very good. Entrees were so/so- fried oysters did not come with a dipping sauce and were dry, spaghetti and giant meatball was disappointing, no cheese inside it like the description, sauce was lacking in flavor, rockfish Chesapeake was great and the parmesan crusted chicken was good.

We were seated at the bar due to the restaurant being closed due to a private party. The musician at the bar was good.

David’s has a nice menu with lots of options. Unfortunately, they do not label their menu for allergens. Would love to see some gluten free option’s there. Service seems to have improved from our last visit.

It was a quiet place and food was okay. Didn't like that one of the managers were bringing out the food without her hair being pulled back. Was worried that her long hair would end up in my food.

Made reservations for my moms birthday with my sister and best friend, so a party of 4. We arrive early and are seated right away, great. We are at the Maryland Live Casino and Hotel seeing a show after dinner so we order drinks. The first round was good, no complaints. The second time around I ordered the “David’s Tea for Two” it came out and the waitress was unsure of the drink but tries to explain it. When I tried it, it literally tasted like tea. No alcohol at all. I had everyone else at the table also try, we all said it definitely was a weak drink for $25. We told the waitress and she went to get the manager that came over and says “the drink was made right, we can make it again if you’d like” I told her “no, it’s just very weak for $25 can I get another shot” her response was “I don’t feel like I should give you a free shot because it was made right.” First off I never said “FREE” secondly, the drink was $25, a little extra shot with a party of four ordering appetizers and full dinner meals, would have been nice. I told her I will pay for the shot, leave my drink and bring me the shot. The bill.. $15 for that “half” shot extra.(wish I had a picture to show how small it was). The rudeness and uncaring is the manager for something so small will make me never return there. Our bill was $200, and your going to be rude to me about a $25 drink that just needed a little extra. The waitress was nice, food was good. But I feel managers like that make the place terrible.

Service is inconsistent. We waited over 40 minutes to be served and the place was not even half full. Food quality is also only mediocre. Our salad was good but the chicken tender appetizer was undercooked.

Thought I'd made bad menu selections my first time here but the food is nasty. DO NOT order any seafood, you can tell it has been sitting in the kitchen too long. Desserts are $9 for a mini serving and again, not fresh.

First negative review in 88 Open Table reservations ever, it was that bad.
