Is all about a time that was unfortunately seems that everything has been stopped at a memory. the place is very romantic and the owner is a fundamental part of this place. The food itslef nothing special, absolutely standard and it's not worth it.

This restaurant hides itself from view - you need to know you are going to eat here otherwise you simply won't find it! Dave is a fantastic Chinese restaurant, everything we ate was delicious, there is no menu, the owner/host comes to the table with a short hand written menu, which he reads out but we decided to take his...

Dave has hosted some famous and interesting guests to his personal presentation of fresh cuisine. Being a not so famous average American family didn't seem to matter to Dave, who treated us as his special guests. Food was worth finding, but we left feeling we made a friend in Dave.

We had just spent a few hours at the Louvre and we're looking for some good food and cocktails. It was a Friday night near 9:00pm and most places were packed with long waiting lines. We just happened upon Dave and even though it looked dark from the street we tried the door and were greeted by Dave immediately! The... More

This place has a story, maybe a thousand behind it, which makes it an entertaining place to be. With hospitality beyond amazing, delicious food and a sumptuous setting, not forgetting the fact that we didn't even have to bother looking at a menu. Davé has created his own paradise and I couldn't recommend visiting this place enough. Book ahead but... More

3.5 for the food, 5.0 for the atmosphere! Dave is straight out of the Studio 54 era - if he likes you, you're friends forever. If he doesn't, too bad for you! Which explains why most customers are regulars with the occasional newbie. The atmosphere of this little gem is half speak-easy, half opium den. The food is good -... More

This review is meant primarily for individuals who suffer from severe food allergies, and need to communicate their constraints in English. The owner was extremely helpful, and willing to prepare simple dishes ensured not to contain multiple allergens. There is no menu, which is actually very helpful, because the owner expects to hear detailed personal requests. And I believe that... More
