David Burke Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

Our Summer 2016 Restaurant Week was excellent, which is what you'd expect at David Burke Kitchen if you'd dined there before, as I have. The starter we both had, gazpacho of heirloom tomato and watermelon with lump crabmeat, was delicious, marred only by a mediocre cherry tomato garnish (the tomatoes were not completely ripe, with not much flavor). We each had a seafood main dish -- Skuna Bay salmon w minted fava beans and Roasted fillet of branzino w wilted spinach -- which were wonderful, and perfectly cooked. The dessert, Valrhona chocolate truffle cake w raspberry preserves and fresh raspberries, was perfect. And the service couldn't have been better. We were there early, so the room was very quiet, which we also enjoyed.

Beautifully prepared and presented meal - from start to finish. The ambiance is upscale but waitstaff is homey and kind. Love the fact that much of the menu is locally sourced. Will come back to experience DB Kitchen again.

We went on a Sunday night and boy was it quiet. The food did not fail however. We have been big David Burke fans for years and since Townhouse and Fishtails closed, we had to travel a bit to check this place out. Hope it sticks around.

While visiting the city, David Burke Kitchen was recommended by two different concierge where we stayed and was previously recommended by a friend who had been there years before. It was no disappointment. We had great service and the Bacon Started was one of the most incredible food delights I have experienced.
Overall it was a great atmosphere, great service and wonderful food. Would highly recommend David Burke Kitchen to anyone visiting the Soho area.

We had a wonderful meal at the David Burke Kitchen. The food was inventive and delicious. I have a unusual diet and they were extremely accommodating, so much so that the dish the chef prepared for me was one of the best I've ever had!
Great service, great find. Highly recommend.

the restaurant was freezing cold. Also I asked for a bone-dry cappuccino and was brought a latté. Server should not pretend that he knows what it is if he does not. Besides that, the food was good but over priced and the restaurant was pretty empty.

I took my fiance here for his birthday. Our waitress was great. When I booked the reservation, I added that it was my fiance's birthday. I never mentioned it to them directly. When we ordered dessert, they also gave him a cupcake with a candle as well as an entire tree of cheese cake pops and two glasses of proseco on the house! We have never experienced anything like this before. We recently got engaged at a small restaurant, and they didn't do anything except to say congratulations. Really impressive what David Burke's Kitchen did. We will go again

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.

The food has a understated elegance. By itself, the food is amazing. However, they can accommodate food allergies such as gluten, soy, or dairy without compromising the flavor. Amazing. Steaks are awesome. Sides complement the steaks but are good on their own. And Monkey bread. Get some. You'll see why.
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!

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.

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

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.
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.

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.
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!
