DBGB NYC Ratings and Reviews

My husband, who has a "cast iron stomach," never any problems, developed severe food poisoning after eating a black truffle pasta at this restaurant. Other diners in the party were fine, but did not have the same dish. We would not recommend the restaurant, no matter how good the food, because it presents a level of risk that is not worth it for the clients.

My friend and I enjoyed the Big Bowery Brunch. Definitely a lot of food to share between 2 people; we both left the restaurant feeling beyond satisfied. The service was very attentive as well, which I appreciated. Overall this was an excellent experience, and I'll be sure to go back.

We have eaten here 3 times while visiting NYC! Each time has been 5 stars! Highly recommend this classy place! Great food and very friendly wait staff. Beautiful atmos, also! Try it! You will not be disappointed!

DBGB is an amazing place, we visited to celebrate somethjing special and the crew and service made it even more special to us. The maitre helped us with pairing our drinks with our food. We had steak tartare and the frenchie burger. Dont leave without having the Alaska dessert, it is the cherry on the top of this amazing experience.

We returned to DBGB after an 18 month or two year absence. It was always one of our favorites but we were disappointed to see how gentrified or ubiquitous the experience has become. Gone are the French specialities, i.e. bone marrow and fried calamari looms large instead. We ordered oysters, they were shucked by an obvious novice, slivers of shell were mixed in with the trampled oysters. Steak frites was still delicious, as was the Vermont sausage, but the condensed menu is now geared for the masses.
Service is forced as well. Our servers robotically asked if we were enjoying every item. The copper pots and pans donated by great chefs used to represent the proud culinary talent and heritage brought to life by DBGB. To us now, they serve as a reminder of what DBGB used to be, before it lost its soul.

I've dined at dbgb a number of times before this, always with family groups of five or more. This was the first dinner for two, just my grandson and I on Christmas Eve, which turned out to be very special and delicious! We ordered a la carte, loved the oysters and beet salad, the duck and scallops entrees. We didn't care for the calamari sauce and chips, although the calamari were very good alone. The only miss was the squash side, which was cooked with way too much oil. Otherwise, service was excellent, as were wine and beer by the glass, and mint tea at the end. We will be back!

My return visit was extremely disappointing, especially for a Christmas eve dinner. It was early, but there were several diners, yet the staff acted and sounded like a group of truckers yelling across the room and the tables at each other ignoring the fact that the restaurant was open and serving! The salad was completely tasteless and my pasta with squash and sage butter was so greasy, I wound up quite ill for the rest of the night. I suppose it's best to stick with one of the signature burgers. I had planned, but am now hesitant to schedule the family for a pig roast special....I don't really feel comfortable enough. What a shame.

The service was great as usual. We tried some seasonal beers which were very good. Sausages were fabulous, but the piggy burger - which is our favorite and why we come here - was not as good on our previous visits Seemed smaller and they were barely warm. Maybe just an off night in the kitchen

Food was generally good. The problem is value. $18 for five shrimp and two slices of avocado is insanity. We were taking our daughter for a special dinner, figuring she'd have one of their hot dogs. She did and said she didn't like. I thought it was her being picky, then I tried it. Don't blame her. About the worst hot dog I've ever had, no idea how they build it up as a place with good franks. Baked Alaska was cool. Overall would have a much more positive review if it'd been 85% as expensive.

Really wonderful food at a pre-theatre price fixe dinner. The meal was marred only by our server failing to bring the desert course until the point where we had to leave to make our curtain. We had been waiting ten minutes at that point. But we didn't really need the desert after the two exceptional courses -- a squash soup and beet salad (the latter straight from the very cold fridge, too bad) and sausages and chicken.
The cast of Othello partied here opening night, and our waiter shared the insight that Daniel Craig (Iago) was a generous tipper .

Have been going here since it opened but this particular time for a late lunch it was as if the staff was out to lunch. Didn't bring everything we ordered and then when we ordered a second glass of wine it didn't show up until after we had asked for the check. After this experience not sure if we'll ever return.

Came early for Sunday brunch, and was seated in the main dining room. The space was lovely, with hi ceilings and tables down the middle section of room as well as off to the side in more secluded, private spaces.
Our group ordered the usual brunch dishes, but I don't think anybody was especially delighted with their meal. I ordered the go cheese omelette, which was surprisingly thick as opposed to delicate. There was nothing special about this dish whatsoever.
The pastry basket was the highlight of the meal, but the pastries were quite small and therefore did not represent a wonderful value for the price charged ($12). But that's brunch in New York, isn't it?

It was a disaster. When I arrived to the restaurant I check my coat, gloves and scarf with the receptionist. By the time of leaving the restaurant I receive back just my coat and gloves. I asked about my scarf, but they couldn't find it. They pick up my e-mail and said that they will contact me about it. It has been a week and I haven't heard from them. I e-mail them asking about it but I didn’t receive any answer.

I always know the experience will be a good one, when it's a Daniel Boulud place. Excellent staff training, great food and ambiance. This was a "wow" for my out-of-town family, who are unfamiliar with the neighborhood and never would have found DBGB on their own. We did pre-theatre before Blue Man Group. A great evening!
