I have been to Davis Islands a few time. And I have visited 220 for lunch and dinner. They have an express lunch, I was in and out in about 35 minutes. The food was A-1 quality. The servers were pleasant and attentive. Dinner on the other hand was a memorable experience. Fresh baked rolls, fresh garden salad or homemade soup, and a great bourbon steak. Romantic atmosphere, and not rushed. Great place to dine. Great wine selection, as well.
Locals and tourists alike flock to this comfy David Island fave for the solid American, Asian and Cajun dishes.. The Scene Nestled in the cute street-that-time-forgot district of David Island, 220 East beckons with a cheery turquoise-and-grape awning. Dine out front at one of the handful of tables on the patio, or inside at one of the deep-green booths. Either way, most tables are full of Islanders and pilgrims from elsewhere in the Bay Area, eager for a friendly face and a fairly priced, unfussy meal.
The Food It often gets top honors in serious burger discussions--the Blue Moo being the standout, with its molten mantle of blue cheese crumbles gussying up the chubby half-pounder. Not everything is a smash (an abundance of blackening spices on desiccated pot stickers), but the kitchen hits its stride with solid American dishes: straightforward, tender filet mignon or flourless chocolate cake so dense you could use it as a paperweight. It loses a little steam with Asian-influenced dishes: Thai cobb salad with everything plus the kitchen sink swathed in too-sweet peanut sauce or a chicken stir-fry with limp veggies.
