David Burke Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
we made the mistake of ordering steak at a non steakhouse and was disappointed. i felt so rushed to place our order . we were seated and given the menu for maybe 5 min and was asked three times if we're ready. and when we weren't ready to place our dessert order we were told we had to place it then and there since we were there for restaurant week and the guy said "okay order this" and he kept tapping his pen like he was annoyed we weren't ready. he continues to make a comment and when i retorted to his comment he tried to be funny and told me to relax and enjoy my dinner. horrible service! i don't think i will be returning to this restaurant anytime soon. way too many options in nyc to return. there was a $25 supplement for the steak when i was told on the phone that it was $15. and when i asked about one of the dessert the waiter said loudly that there's a $10 supplement . i can read that there's a $10 supplement, i wasn't asking about the price i was asking about the dessert. so of course we ordered something haphazardly and it was maybe the worst dessert i have ever had and any restaurant. it's summer but they managed to find the most un-ripped peach in nyc. it was just not good and no one should order it especially for the price! the cheesecake lollipop was good and was the reason why i did return , but i don't think it's good enough for me to return for a third time.
Took a friend here for his birthday. We had the Restaurant Week menu and really enjoyed the whole thing. Service was nice yet casual enough to feel comfortable. Food was well presented, and more importantly tasty.
Overall a great choice for a special occasion.
Top notch dining indoor and out
Our second recent visit to DB was a birthday lunch
Seated outdoors in an airy, large and pleasant space on a terrace above the main restaurant, the Reataurant Week menu offered ample choices at great value. We had baked oysters,whitefish salad and cheeseburger, all perfectly done and presented. The greeting and waitstaff were all friendly and helpful. A fine choice of wines by the glass complimented the lunch. We had delicious berries and chocolate mousse for desert.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Restaurant week. Obviously the restaurant doesn't care. Food was decent admittedly. But service was atrocious. Sat for over 25 minutes without getting a drink order in. Table seated 10 minutes after us had appetizers before we had a drink on the table. Honestly, if you are annoyed by restaurant week crowds, don't offer RW menus.
Went for a girlfriends day out during restaurant week. Ate in the upstairs outdoor dining area. View of city was fantastic! We almost felt like we were in a different place - no street noise. Server was very helpful & attentive. Great value for a 3 course lunch & food was delicious!
Food was excellent, only 4 stars for service since we felt very rushed by the pace of service. We went on a Monday night in the summer and the restaurant was not busy. Each course came out so quickly we hardly had time to talk (which was the real purpose of meeting up).
We went to David Burke's Kitchen for my husband's birthday and I had noted that when I made our reservation. I had asked them to add a candle to dessert but they didn't do anything - they brought our dessert out (we were sharing) but no candle. The waitress also didn't bring two spoons! Finally, when we got our check, I realized that they had charged us for a BOTTLE of red wine - not the GLASS that my husband had with his steak! The waitress revised the check but made no effort to "fix" the mistake - I've seen restaurants comp a glass or even a meal for something like that. The bottle was about 5x more than the glass - and if I hadn't realized, I would have tipped on the much higher amount as well. Overall, between ignoring my birthday request and then that mistake on the bill, I wasn't impressed. The food was very good and the location worked for us given meetings I was having in that area but I am not sure I would go back.
We went there for NYC Restaurant week (reservations for 13pm done through Open Table). We were sited and a menu was offered, but when we tried to order (3 course prix-fixe), the waiter sad that the menu that was given to us (Lunch) was incorrect and shall be replaced for other (Brunch), even if the first menu had the statement of Prix-Fixe course on it. Very disappointing. Despite this, food was good. Will not return.
Perhaps it was due to it being Restaurant week but overall experience was underwhelming. I feel like short cuts were taken bc prices were cut. Food was bland and nothing to rave about. Drinks were unimpressive as well- not strong and only expensive.
I think I would have been more understanding about the food if service was better. My waiter did not want to work. There was no greeting. It was nearly 20 mins before he saw us flagging him down. He was not doing anything that entire time. He even decided to stop in the middle of taking our order to pour another table their drinks. On top of that, he got our drinks wrong.
Should have taken other comments seriously. Lots of people complained of mediocre food and horrible service.
Not going back again.
We went for NYC Restaurant week. While most others have a very limited menu we were surprised that theirs included everything (some items had supplements). Our server was knowledgeable and offered great suggestions. She was attentive and understood our time constraints. Each course we had was wonderful, charred asparagus, lamb meatballs, braised rabbit, skuna salmon and chocolate cherry mousse for dessert. Everything was timed perfectly and again with consideration to our time needs. I will definitely return again!!
The food here is absolutely amazing. I went for lunch during Restaurant Week with a friend and we were both blown away by the deliciousness. That being said, the service was absolutely atrocious for a restaurant of this price and caliber. We waited over 15 minutes to place an order, and waited another 15 minutes for the server to take our cards for the check once we received it. I could understand if the restaurant wasn't busy, but it wasn't not.
Additionally, at first they weren't able to find my reservation in the computer system, despite having called me the previous day to confirm. This wouldn't have been an issue, except that the man in the front was quite rude and snooty. I understand this is an upscale restaurant, but there is no need to make your customers feel out of place or unwanted. Thankfully, another woman stepped in and got everything taken care of with a smile and a much more pleasant demeanor.
Overall, the food is great, but the service and initial welcome definitely put me off on a future date here. There are too many other great places in the city with equally delicious food and better service.
Wonderful experience this week for lunch! The food is prepared with care and only the freshest ingredients are used. The service was attentive, prompt and funny in a good way! All around great experience. The beet salad is amazing, the salmon delicious and flavorful, the berries and sorbet a perfect ending to a refreshing meal.
The food was very good as always, but the service was off. The wait staff seemed to be in a daze and unorganized. No bread was served at the table until asked mid way through the meal. Coffee with dessert means that it is served together. Coffee was served about 20 minutes after the dessert!
Went here for Restaurant Week which presented a pretty good value for such a fashionable restaurant. Had to wait 20 minutes to be seated even though I had a 7 o'clock reservation.
Table bread was quite varied and fresh. Three different varieties were served.
My party and I ordered the prix fixe menu. We had the Lamb Meatballs, which were served with ordinary pita bread and while well spiced, were drier than the needed to be. The burrata was fine, seeming a little bland and not really of a high quality. This is not the place to order burrata. The bread accompanying this had a delightful crunch
For entrees we had the braised rabbit agnolotti, which while serving a skimpy portion of rabbit, was quite good. This dish was plated terribly and was the first thing I noticed when it arrived. Someone ordered the pork belly and seemed to like it fine.
The chocolate cherry mousse seemed fine, but I've always hated the combination cherries and chocolate so I'm totally baised.
The best thing on offer was the Stone fruit short cake. I don't even really like peaches but this cake and it's accompaniments were amazing. Order this! I was told the cocktails were very good too.
The service here was fast and efficient, to the point of almost being brusque, and the servers have a hard time checking in on you because of how cramped and loud this place can be. Also, we hated the large printed photographs of butchers and fish mongers. Overall, I'd say this place is fine, but not really in par with some of its competition in Manhattan. Will not return.
Amazing food and service. The burger and chicken sandwich were amazing. The upstairs garden is so beautiful. Perfect to take pictures. I went during lunch time and it was very peaceful and quiet.
Had the lollipop tree for dessert. It was ok, pretty but nothing special.
Service was extremely slow. We waited 20 min for a waiter to show up to take our drink order. Another 20 min to take our food order. When they finally served our main course, we had to wait another 5 min for them to bring silverware.
Also, they advertised that they have lobster nights on tuesdays. We went on a Tuesday and they said no, they don't have it anymore?!?! (Btw, I just received their lobster promotion email a few days prior). I went there looking for lobster and had to settle for fish.
Need a big improvement on service!
The food was great! If you like protein, the clothesline bacon as an appetizer and the pork belly as a main were amazing.
The service lacked in comparison to the food and atmosphere. Our appetizer order got mixed up and we ordered a bottle of wine that came after our appetizers.
