DBGB NYC Ratings and Reviews

Went on a Sunday night for dinner and enjoyed the entire experience. The price fixe menu was a great value at $39.00 though some entrees were better than others. The curried cauliflower soup was delicious; the beet salad was delicious. The pasta with squash was good, but a bit starchy; moules frites delicious and the sausage sampler was good. Cheese plate was 2 cheeses, pecans, and hearty bread and was really good. Molten chocolate cake was good too. We sat at the bar and the bartender was engaging, but not overbearing, and directed us to a nice bourbon. Can't wait to go back.
Remarkable cocktails, outstanding wine l ...
Remarkable cocktails, outstanding wine list, peerless appetizers and small plates. Sausage was competent and flavorful. Strangely, the burger was mediocre, barely at the level of your corner pub; desserts were similarly average (aside from the passion fruit sundae, which was a standout).

The wait staff seemed overburdened, we were not served well. The food portions were very small for the price. The steak frites were over cooked and the meal was so so. Very disappointed on this trip as other times we had good food. Won't be going back, too much money for mediocre food and too busy a staff.

A really great place to go for excellent food and service in a casual setting. Everything first rate from the superb shrimp wrapped in bacon to the grand marnier soufflé. Sommelier recommended a Macon villages. And it was excellent. Well worth a visit.

A brilliant interpretation of the classic Parisian Bistro with a decidedly American twist. The service was at a Michelin starred, formal standard but with a unpretentious and casual feel. Our incredible waitress was knowledgeable and obviously highly trained and experienced. She was always there the moment you needed her, but never overbearing. The sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable and willing to teach and inform. In hot New York restaurants, one often gets the feeling that waitstaff is selected on looks before skill and talent, but this was not the case here at all (not to say that the staff wasn't an attractive bunch!). I will definitely return on my next trip to the city! And I almost forgot the food, it was incredible to say the least. We started with a very authentic charcuterie board and a heavenly curried cauliflower soup. I had the duck breast as my main course, and it was heaven. Cooked to the perfect temperature. We ended our meal wit an ice cream sundae and a tawny port. Next time I'll be certain to try the incredible sounding steak tartare, they are known for it. Can't wait to come back!

The waiter was cold, not very friendly, did not know the menu and did not make us feel like we were welcome. For this price point the service should be top notch. We have had some great meals at DBGB and great service maybe it was just an off night. The food was good as usual.

My mussels were gritty, to the point that I couldn't eat them. The broth lacked flavor. My husband was equally unhappy with his meal. The only person who enjoyed their food was my mother who's duck, was in fact delicious. Service was great, lovely atmosphere, sadly didn't enjoy the food.

Food is very good. We'll be back. However service was lousy. We were celebrating our anniversary, they gave us a table very close to another table. We asked for a booth to get some privacy. They had us wait 10-15 mins for another table while there were plenty of tables open at that time. Server delivered a fast food restaurant service.

I've been here several times as I have been wowed by the cuisine, the ambiance and the venue. This time I found the food ok but I thought it pricey. I would not hurry back to this restaurant but would say if you've never been, the overall experience is quite enjoyable.

Overall, a good experience, but really outstanding staff service. Mixture of clientele at early dinner, from patrons at the bar to families with young children, couples and pre-theater diners, all make for a really hospitable restaurant. Very attractive decor, excellent food and wine choices.

My mother wanted her burger well done. It came burned on the outside, raw on the inside.
No offer to make a another burger, and we paid full price. My daughter and I ordered medium done burgers, and they were good, though. I've visited DBGB's several times over the years, this is the first time I've been diseappointed.

It was a very disappointed experience and we even talked to the a Manager that only wanted to excuse all the mistake, but did not do anything about our complains. Dry hamburgers cooked on a stove that was not cleaned and a dry simple bread. An upgraded McDonalds. We orded Mineral Water and got filtred tab water for the price of $5. "We don't have Mineral Water". The service was very stressful and not on a level that even this restaurant could accept. It was not worth the money.

I was a bit disapointed from the attitude of the place. We sat near a very noisy group. We did not like one of the dishes but it didn't matter to the manager on the floor. I would expect him to offer to chenge it or extract it from the bill. Neither happened.
I am not sure this restaurant will stay on my list.

Never disappoints! Food is always en pointe and service is terrific. I could do without seeing a full suckling pig come out of the kitchen (even as I munch on sausage) but I also know that's DBGB's thing. We had an amazing dinner - and I loved my mushroom pasta.

In NYC for the weekend and took my wife and daughter to dinner at DBGB. We arrived early for drinks. Great bar and atmosphere. The staff was professional and accommodating. Good location with e dined in the back area which I recommend.

Vermont sausage came out undercooked. I took a bite and it was mushy and meat was still pink. Waiter agreed. Had a the same meal replaced. This was the only dish that was notably nice. Mussels was standard. Lamb chops - meat was flavorless as it came out undercooked and the only flavor was coming from the spices. Steak tartare was subpar. Overall bad experience starting with perhaps a chef forgetting the basics of cooking food. Eugh. Service was great though and ambience was nice. $150.00 bill for 2 for raw food? Never again.

We visited for restaurant week and were instantly sold on the place. The beer and wine selection is incredible, and all of the food is amazing (save only for the chicken schnitzel). We especially like the steak tartare, fish crudo, and baked Alaska. The staff are really great too! I plan to come regularly.
