FOOD WAS GOOD BUT COFFEE WAS TERRIBLE...REQUESTED FRESH CUP OF COFFEE AND IT WAS VERY BLAH...SENT BACK AND REQUESTED ESPRESSO WHICH CAME TO THE TABLE COLD AND BITTER. DID NOT DRINK EITHER AND WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED.
Dined at the suggestion of a native New Yorker for a unique roof-top dinner with a view away from the downtown area. Our New York Trip was a graduation gift to my son, and this was a perfect place to spoil him with great food, service, atmosphere and a view of the WTC. Our waiter was wonderful with his suggestions - especially the Drunken Donuts for dessert! Bison, Filet and Scallops were all perfect! The green beans should not be missed either!
I didn't love it.
Empty, overpriced, really disappointed. Very sweet staff though.

A little slow for a Friday night...only about 5 couples. Our servers was efficient but not at all engaging or friendly. Food was good, particularly the dessert - a cookie sampler. The highlight was having the pastry chef come out to greet us and explain the different types of cookies. She was friendly and made our night.

Excellent food; the wine list is incredible but very expensive. Very few bottles under $100... A wine list with more wines between $50 and $70 would have been appreciated...

Bacon appetizer, while good, was a rip-off at $18 for 3 strips. Presentation was excellent. Sommelier was a little condescending.

The ambiance and the service was great. My date and I sat on the rooftop. The matredee pleasantly escorted us to a table where our waiter tended to us frequently throughout our meal. Sounds from other patrons as well as music playing were backdrops to my conversation and never interfered. I would refer to a friend

The food was delicious, loved the pickled veggie dip. The mash potato was absolutely enormous. Very tasty. All the food ordered was enjoyed thoroughly. The price of the wine was just silly. I thought I was looking at bottles at first. It should not be necessary to only offer that price level
Opted for a Mothers Day breakfast. All the standards are offered with delightful twists. Brioche French Toast with Berries. Add the Maple Bacon. Excellent.

Honestly underwhelmed and disappointed with one of the few restaurants in the city that offered high Zagat rankings at a "reasonable price". Very good service and a nice atmosphere in a hotel that offers two of my favorite bars- The Treehouse and Jimmy. The dishes sounded like everything you'd expect from Davis Burke but there was a severe lack of star factor quality on the caviar tots and the lobster brioche. Steaks were good cuts but lacked flavor and fell well short of what you'd expect in a city of phenomenal steaks. The price tag of roughly $115 per diner had me raise my eyebrows as I can get a much more enjoyable meal at Capital Grille or Ruth's Chris', etc. for 20-30 dollars less. Go for drinks upstairs and come down for the cheesecake lollipop tree for dessert if you must check it off your list.

The service was incredible. Steaks came out over cooked and seamed to be bad cuts of meat. Not impressed by the food overall which was a disappointment.
Wine way too expensive
Wine is ridiculously priced. One or two bottles around $80 and the rest 100's & 1000's of dollars. Food very nice and service good. We enjoy wine with our meal but unfortunately those prices spoilt the whole thing. All they need to do is have 2 or 3 of each at more of an entry level.
food was different and interesting
My favorite was the cheesecake pops for dessert. I wished they brought out more for our table. The sugar cinnamon rolls were delicious. My seafood meal was delicious and unique. Everyone at the table was very content.
Food was good. My scallop was perfectly cooked. My brother lamb was a bit dry. At present, limited options for desserts.
The waitress was horrible. We were there ...
The waitress was horrible. We were there for about two hours and she literally came to the table twice. We had to constantly keep asking for her, and she wasn't even busy, she was just standing in the front of the restaurant by the computer. The busboys did a better job than she did. The food was good, but nothing extraordinarily amazing. In my opinion, the restaurant is overpriced but it's in New York, so that wasn't really my issue since I expected everything to be more expensive. Considering this is supposed to be a higher end restaurant, I was expecting much better service for the price of the food. I will not be back.
Great SOHO Spot!
Great food, great service., great value. The pasta fra diavolo had it was great. More seafood - lobster & rock shrimp. Highly recommended.

Really great casual but elegant atmosphere. Great wines and food. High end but excellent food. Great for a date or couples night out
For nearly any dining occassion
My experience at David Burke's Kitchen from ambiance, service and quality of cuisine, was beyond my highest expectation. Chef Raoul Whitaker isn't trying to appease to the latest trend. His menu caters to the diversity and class of the clientele. Whether meeting up with friends or impressing a business client, you will enjoy every aspect of the occasion.
lunch at kitchen
We took our daughter out to celebrate her graduation from medical school, and were not disappointed. The food was outstanding, quite filling, and presented in a artistic fashion! Our waiter was personable, knowledgeable, and friendly. Overall, a wonderful experience. PS- we do miss Fishtail!

Service was polite but sluggish. Dining room was about 1/3 full, took over 1/2 hr before we saw food, 20 minutes just for tea. Food was just ok, omlette like rubber, everything else ok

Loved coming here for my birthday dinner... Was so happy to have the lamb special!!!
Tourist Hotel Restaurant
DBK is a decent hotel restaurant catering to the tourist's palette. Friendly service, nice atmosphere, good for families or groups, tourist fare. Good for what it is.
Probably would not go there again
We had lunch there last Friday; it was one of my favorite place for couple years. Menu does not change, the same offerings month after month. What did change is the wine list - it became super expensive. We could not find anything below $77 per bottle (except rose). Even by glass it was unreasonable. No wonder all places around David Burke were packed, and this restaurant was empty.
Had a great night!
Took my girlfriend out for some dinner and we had a wonderful night, the food was great and our waitress was even better!

From the warm and welcoming David, who called to confirm our reservation, to the charmingly buoyant Alessandra who cares for us all night, our time at David Burke was sublime. My wife had a great birthday dinner, and we looked like champs for having suggested a unique gem of a place. Yay us! But really, Yay David Burkes Kitchen.

I wish they really they had more variety with meats other then just fish. And better appetizers (more of a selection)
Short ribs cold and tasted like leftover meat. Not going back. To many excellent spots in the city. Three scallops for around 40 dollars
It was fine
I'm an out of towner and I stand by my previous thought - I'd rather go high end ($120+ prix fixe like Daniel, Gordon Ramsey) than spend approx $60pp at a place like David Burke Kitchen. It was fine but it wasn't much better than what I could get in Cincinnati. When I come to NY, I want amazing and this wasn't. The brussels sprouts were a great side though.
On the surface the Menu reads Incredible. All food that I would normally love. Of the 6 items we ordered they all were the poorest of this food I have ever had. The burrata, the foie gras, the Duck, the Branzino and the Fra Diavlo. All dishes the were mediocre at best. Very disappointed as I had high hopes for this well recommended restaurant. On a side note the service was horrendous, it was a quiet evening and they were all over the place and not attentive at all.

Saturday brunch was delish! Service was great. Would def go back.
Unfortunately, the place was a bit disappointing. I have to say the person who greeted us and has taken us to a table was very welcoming and warm, nothing bad about that and that was the ONLY great thing about this place. On the other hand, our server was not too friendly at all. We were there for brunch and I asked if they had hot chocolate (for my child) and the guy looked at me like I was was asking for a shot of vodka for breakfast. Also I was not even asked once if I wanted a refill on my coffee. Well ok. My kids waited for their tea instead which took about 20 minutes or 25 minutes (I am NOT joking). Our food was talking a long time as well and was not super warm when it arrived to the table. Was the food great, I felt it would taste much better if it was hot and not warm. I did not want to make a fuss about it because we just wanted to get out of this place. Would I go back, a definite NO. There are many other and better options. Service was terrible!
Great Food, Great Service, Overall Excellent
Food was superb and the service was impeccable. Raoul did a magnificent job in the kitchen. It was one of the most satisfying meals and dining experiences I've ever had. The 30 day dry aged t-bone was perfectly cooked. The vegetarian chili was wholesome and full of flavor.
Love this restaurant !
The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars was because my beef was full of fat and gristle (just not a great cut of meat) but the preparation of it, the beets for our appetizer, and our brownie dessert were perfect as usual. We came ready for the monkey bread for dessert, but unfortunately there was something wrong with the oven and they couldn't make it the night I was there. Brownie dessert was a close second.
Ny david burke
I had been there for having lunch with 2 people. We made 3 different course orders and the total amount was about $180. Foods were nice enough and the area that this restaurant located in is great to start the soho.
left and got a slice after
Service was slow and unfriendly. The short ribs tasted like they were made in the microwave, the polenta cake was coarse and gritty and excreting oil like a leaky 72 Porsche targa. Service was slow and not helpful. The bar program was weak. The restaurant should be closed. I have had better meals in coach class on united airlines.
