Had to wait 30mins for our table. Food took ages to arrive and they got orders wrong. Staff generally unfriendly and unhelpful.
Too much hype
$10 for beer and $20 for burger, but nothing special about it, just over priced.

My friends and I ate some of the more informal dishes on the menu, such as Merguez and Thai sausages, and cheeseburgers. All of it was excellent. The Grand Marnier soufflé was to die for. Nice atmosphere. It's a big place, but doesn't feel big. We will happily come here again.

very pleasant service was all about this place, stuffs and manager were efficient, friendly and professional manner at the same time that made me feel much appreciate for their foods.
Great ambiance, wonderful space, excellent food!
We went there on a Friday night out for dinner, and DGBG didn't disappoint! Very spacious place with a wonderful wine selection. We went for the pre-fixe menu which comes with an appetizer, main entree and a dessert, all from a relatively wide selection. Ambiance here is hard to beat! Highly recommended.
Flavorful food and attentive service
Fries and mussels were so delicious, especially accompanied by a glass of sauvignon blanc. And the pistachio sundae is superb. But it's the friendly and attentive service that also keeps me coming back.
First Impression was great!
First time here. Staff was super friendly and the decor was amazing. We had attentive service and our food was delicious. Bonus was we hit the happy hour special of $1 oysters! Made the evening even better! Noticed there was also a prix-fixe menu which we weren't up for desserts, but think we may save our appetites and try for next time! Would definitely return and recommend!

Lot's of missteps with service on this visit. Normally anything from DB is spot on. But this time, the service was subpar. I am not sure if it because we had a 5:15 reservation and this was on the ' change over.' But I have waited table in NYC for years myself and know when the service is competent or not. The bright spot was the somme / manager who ended up taking our order and checking in on us. He was amazing. Hoping for a better experience on the next visit.

Soft shell crab was amazing. The French toast was fluffy and buttery. The dbgb dog was awesome. All in all really delicious. Need to come back to try other things
GREAT FOOD, TERRIBLE SERVICE
The food is terrific. The kitchen knows what it's doing. But the front house is poorly managed. Bad waitstaff. Our side orders were completely forgotten and did not arrive until after we finished our main courses. We were given the wrong drinks. With dessert, they brought white wine instead of Armagnac. They did not know their own food menu, could not answer questions. Did not know what Armagnac was, had to get another person to find it. This was not just one server. Three different servers bungled their orders. Someone should do some staff training. Despite the good food, we will not be back. Not what we expect from DB.
My friend, Paul, and I had a lot of catch up to do and DBGB was the perfect spot. The food's very good, the room's mellow, and the noise level is modest. The prix fixe always makes me happy.
Great Sunday night dinner
Excellent for post Sunday matinee meal. Had the Yankee burger and the duo of sausages. Both delicious. But the real standouts were the appetizers. A delicious carrot salad off the regular menu, and a special of crispy artichokes, which was amazing. The restaurant was empty, and very quiet, and the service was friendly and attentive.
Looking for a restaurant in LES for a birthday dinner with friends. Decided on DBGB and couldn't be happier with that decision . The atmosphere was great, the food was delicious, and we received fabulous service from start to finish. Really felt like VIPs and went above and beyond to make the night soecial
Excellent night at DBGB
We have eaten here many times, so I thought it would be a great place to take my sister for her birthday. The wait staff and sommelier were attentive and helpful without being intrusive. The tuna crudo and asparagus appetizers were perfect to start the meal. My steak was a perfect medium rare and the frites were delicious. Everyone enjoyed the food, it was such a great experience.

Went for my mother-on-laws birthday and they made it extra special for her! The bartender is great, he was sharing stories before we sat at our table and watching him create drinks was like watching an artists painting.

Great food and service. We were there for birthday and they were most helpful with preparing the birthday dessert. Everyone loved the baked Alaska. Will def be going back.
Go for the beers, stay for the food

No one in the place. We understand hey stopped providing unlimited drinks. Place was empty. Low energy. Great food
We always get great food, terrific service, in a great atmosphere at DBGB. We will keep coming back!
Wonderful Execution All Around
I'm just going to say it...we loved DBGB. My wife and I had a reservation on a Tuesday night on the early side. As such, the restaurant was not particularly packed so we didn't have to deal with any of the noise issues indicated by other reviewers. Every bit of food we ordered was excellent, including the mid-meal Vermont sausage course. Eggs were poached to perfection, steak cooked perfectly, and Grand Marnier dessert soufflé was magnificent. The main room is inviting with copper cookware from world-renown chefs adorning the rafters and devoid of any stuffiness. What impressed us most was the service. Our waiter was perfectly attentive (i.e., not overbearing, but there when we needed him), but it was the service around the entirety of the room that was most impressive. They were restocking wine on the shelves around the dining room which might have been an otherwise un-noteworthy event, but to have 5 or 6 people doing this so effortlessly in a manner that didn’t disturb the diners, and to have every single person working so cooperatively was amazing. I know it may seem like a tiny thing, but in today’s dining world it’s refreshing to see people working together without complaint and possibly even enjoying themselves. Incidentally, with respect to wine we ordered a phenomenal bottle of wine at $200 that was one of the most fairly priced I've seen (i.e., less than a 2x markup). We will definitely return.
Great family dinner with kids in a nice atmosphere
Went to DBGB for a family dinner as a visiting family member was going back home and we wanted to send him off with a good meal. We sat in a private banquet which was really nice and quiet. The burgers and mussels with fries were standouts, while I wasn't as impressed with the homemade sausages. The restaurant is very accommodating for kids and there were quit a few tables with children. The wine selection was nice, while the beer is somewhat limited unless you like craft beers - you won't find your standard choices here. My only complaint was the waitress. She had a little bit of an attitude and forgot to bring the sausages we ordered. I would definitely go again.

We went for the Big Bowery Brunch. It's a lot of food and very tasty. It just doesn't have the vibe of other, much more popular venues for brunch (it's a lot less crowded).
Fun and Lively
Met my 2 sisters for the weekend in NYC. Added a family friend who lives downtown to the mix. We were starving when we arrived and had good drinks and the food was delivered at a nice pace. I was happy with the food overall. Fun atmosphere too. Best of all, we wanted to hang out a bit and talk and we were not rushed out.
Service is as dedicated and decadent as the food!
We had a great experience at DBGB. From the decadent appetizers (Tuna Crudo was bursting with flavor), to the mains, and the cocktail list was spot on through the meal. Amazing service with knowledgeable staff and attentive management. Every time we dined there, there was at least one dish that came in "complementary of the Chef", which coincidentally fit to the overall dining experience. Highly recommended.
awesome as always
Always a lovely meal. Thanks to Kevin for wonderful beer suggestions! My friends were totally floored. And I'm always happy to check out exciting beers!
Glad I went. The wrong food came out at first but the waitress noticed right away and corrected the mistake. Great service an the food was tasty. it was nice to check out a famous chef's food without having to do fine dining. A nice mid-level gastropub feel.
Dinner with friends
Great drinks. For the price, food could have been better. Service was amazing! Atmosphere is inviting and not pretentious.
Great go-to spot for nice dinner
Have been here a few times and never disappoints. It's always on the list of ideas for a great dinner with friends or colleagues. Something on the menu for everyone, and great quality. The entire restaurant is warm and casual in the upscale sense.
Love his spot Chef Danielle is a genius!

Very good Easter lamb!
Had an amazing lamb dish - which was the special for the day. Would recommend friends!
Looks deceiving from outside...
This place looks a bit plain from the outside, and with that boring name, but is quite nice inside. Being daytime and with kids, we were happy to sit by the window, but the booths in the back room look like they'd be lovely for night time or a boozy lunch. Service was good - we were happy to have kids meals brought out very quickly.
Its ok. We came from 58th ave and 5th. So quite far hoping it was good. However, it was just ok. Presentation was not the greatest for plating. The papaya salad with the Thai sausage was good. The actual sausage was not good. Overall, will not come again.

Great spot for a special occasion with a group. Superb cocktails. One complaint: they seated five of us at a four-top where the fifth was seated in a busy aisle.
