We have visited this restaurant for 2 evenings, and both times had wonderful meals and a great experience. The portions are not to big, the presentation beautiful and the flavours well presented and not overwhelming. Today we had Carpaccio, Tuna and steak, and it was...More

My parents and I went to this cozy restaurant to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Our waitress was friendly and very efficient. We started the meal by sharing three of the small plates (crispy fried potstickers, crispy brussels sprouts, and scallops). All were well-prepared and flavorful....More

Found David's 388 on Trip Advisor and liked the idea of a neighborhood place. It was wonderful. Food so incredibly favorable, and our server, Vicky, was great. We started with the Brussels sprouts with blue cheese, crunchy almonds, and a hint of ginger. Perfectly roasted....More

This is the original David’s restaurant and a reliable favorite for us. The food is creative and ordering is fun as almost everything has a fresh take on flavor. If you’re not in the mood for Portland, this is a great Out of Portland neighborhood...More

The food at David’s is always amazing. Some of the portions are on the smaller size and are not great for young, hungry teenagers. The burgers are relatively inexpensive and are extremely delicious. The bread they serve before the dinner is mouthwatering.

Neighborhood gem. Was excited to see a new menu out - finally. However, the new appetizer rillette toast is not up to standards. Far too much bread to topping ratio and crab topping is a bit bland. New salad was a welcomed change. The burger...More
