David Burke Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

My mom and I went to David Burke Kitchen to celebrate our birthdays. Service was excellent and although there were not that many gluten-free options on the menu, Carlos- our server- worked closely with the manager to ensure that we had a great experience.
I started with the roasted beets which were delicious. My mother had the kabocha squash which was perfectly roasted and caramelized. We both had the scallops, which we highly recommend. 5 fat, succulent scallops in broth with spinach and two kinds of mushrooms. The baked potato and sauteed mushrooms were also quite tasty.
The restaurant does not have gluten free desserts, but we did enjoy the sorbet and ice cream options. The cinnamon ice cream, in particular, was rich, and smooth and cinnamony, but not overwhelming.
The restaurant has a nice wine list and creative cocktails. Overall, a great experience and we look forward to another visit to celebrate a special event.

We had our anniversary dinner here and it was amazing to say the least. I appreciate the delicious creative cuisine provided by the chef and friendly staff that accommodated us. This will certainly not be the last night we dine here.

The food was amazing and the service very good. It was mostly empty, which made the ambience suffer. It might have been due to the holidays and the fact that it's a bit off the beaten path. The bread board should not be missed and the bacon clothesline is a delicious, albeit artery clogging experience. We will define back!

I've never left a review about a restaurant but the disgusting Christmas dinner at David Burke Kitchen warrants the effort. In chronological order:
(1) In a half-empty dining room, they unsuccessfully attempted to squeeze our party of 3 into a table for 2.
(2) My husband's onion soup was tasteless and bland while my squash appetizer also desperately needed some -- any -- sort of seasoning.
(3) My sirloin steak -- which was a $25 up-sell from the prix fixe -- was supposed to be medium rare and arrived well past well done. I returned it and waited 15 minutes for a new steak, during which time my family finished their meals. The belated second steak had barely been cooked: ribbons of white fat in the steak were totally unrendered and the steak was covered with a thick layer of gristle. I tried sawing through the layers of fat and gristle but the basically uncooked piece of meat was as tough as an old boot. My first bite revealed that absolutely no seasoning had been used. I asked for salt, which didn't help the poor beast that had effectively been marched straight from the field to the dining room without stopping by the kitchen. I gave up after a total of two nauseating bites.
(4) Needless to say, the fact that the chef ruined our holiday dinner and served me an inedible entree didn't stop the staff from charging us the bloated full price for my uneaten chunk of raw meat. The meal was grotesquely expensive, especially given its shockingly low quality.
(5) As a final telling indicator, the careless staff kicked my chair/bumped into me no less than 6 times. Number of apologies: zero.
Vile in every possible respect.

We went there for Christmas brunch which was an excellent choice! Staff were all very helpful and friendly. We went with a newborn and they were able to arrange us a table that fit a stroller and arranged changing area for us. Food was amazing and portion was big! Overall, we had a pleasant experience dining at David Burke's kitchen.

We went for lunch and had the three course option. First the food was fantastic. I had a rabbit fettuccine that had a savory blend of herbs and my other three diners had equally delicious courses. The dessert was such a pleasant surprise with hints of salted Carmel and chocolate. it is a great value too. The staff could not have been more pleasant and we felt like we were welcomed friends. The location and ambience are great. I cannot wait to go back and this is now on the top of my favorite NYC spots.

Food was good and so was ambiance. Service was a bit slow and not very good with dealing with kids during dunner service. I've been other times for lunch/brunch and they know how to tend to children more so which is strange.

Food was underwhelming and expensive. Our table had the lobster toast, onion soup, steak, salmon and cod. Only the cod was acceptable with a nice crispy skin. The steak was chewy and the salmon dry. The lobster toast was ordinary. I'm not sure why the food was so poorly made. I was there on a Sunday night and there was only 4 tables with diners. This place was about 80 percent empty. Too many better dining experiences in Soho. Don't waste your time here.

The service was outstanding. We got stuck in traffic and was almost an hour late the staff was very understanding and accommodating. The waiter was knowledgeable made some great recommendation based on what flavors we enjoyed most. Service was impecable. Appetizers (oysters and lobster toast) were wonderful. The oysters were tangy sweet deliciousness. the lobster toast was simply amazing. our main course (steak and sea bass )was simple and delicious. Our side were pecorino fries and mushrooms, you can not go wrong with fries but the mushrooms stole the show. On to dessert the Candy Bar! Oh my god I did not expect to be wowed because it looked so simple to my delight is was amazing the ice cream pairing was perfect.

Fabulous restaurant! Our first time there and so glad we chose this place to celebrate a birthday! Everything was delicious from the perfectly seasoned filet to the crispy hot fries to the awesome brussel sprouts! Nice selection of wines. Service was attentive. Great ambience! Can't wait to come back!

Good prix-fixe deal and food. Ok wait staff; hostess in particular was welcoming, helpful and professional. Modern decor, spacey and not crowded during weekday lunch. Much more crowded on the weekends, as expected.

The food is tasty- but also fun! We stated with raw vegetables and dip as an appetizer and felt like kids. We had DIY donuts for dessert. They are like large Timbits- and you inject the sauce to stuff the donuts! There is also a bacon appetizer that comes with bacon clipped onto a rack!
