DBGB- New York Ratings and Reviews

Being late to the table and pressed for time, the service bent over backwards to make it all worth while. Thanks to the staff you made our troubles melt like lemon drops. Made it to the theater with time to spare. And of course the food was fantastic! Thanks to all see you again!

The service and brunch menu was great. The only negative is that for $19, I would have liked my Salmon Florentine with a side of potatoes and a salad. You had to pay extra for these things which is included on most menus at the same price point from their competitors in the area.

The steak tartare was ok, but the calamari and baked alaska were excellent, as were the drinks. (The bread was also delicious.) This was my second visit for baked alaska, and I really like the place. Our waiter was friendly.

It is a wonderful place, but we were a bit disappointed with the 9oz steak frites, which was way over-dry, even for a medium-well steak, which we asked for. Other than that, the staff is extremely friendly and was very helpful with our 1 year old baby. Flavor combinations and boldness are unique and delicious, but it is a bit pricey.

We have been long time customers since DBGB's first opened. It has always been a place we all looked forward to going. We often took out of town guest here. I was sadly disappointed this time and not sure we will be back. We had reservations, which a credit card was required this time. The hostess was not accommodating, or friendly. The restaurant was nearly empty and she insisted on putting us on a very small table by next to a larger party. I was knocked into by the person next to me and the service staff several times during the entire meal. There was no reason to place us in this uncomfortable spot when 80 percent of the booths were empty in the dinning room. The waitress was rough, not the service level or sophistication that has always been consistent with this establishment. The menu options were much more limited. So sad to see this restaurant slip.

This is the third time we have been to DBGB. We have always sat in the back room as the noise levels n the front bar area can be excessive (some may say vibrant or rocking). Service, as always is excellent and although your table comes under one waiter/waitress, any waiter passing gets involved so there are no annoying delays in getting attention. Food was very good and excellent value for money. The only downside this visit was a very large table near us which was pretty noisy - in fact customers at this table kept getting up and standing a few feet away just so they could have a proper conversation. Definitely not a restaurant for a romantic evening but well worth a visit. We will certainly visit again on our next trip to New York.

Food was prepared with care. Nice presentations. Loved the country pâté. They said that the burgers were on the salty side. Loved the names of the chefs up above and the copper cookware.

It was all great. I had been there before for a work lunch but it was the first time for my wife who was impressed with the atmosphere. We both had the cucumber gazpacho soup which was amazing. The different flavors kept popping in our mouth. We ate it slowly cause we didn't want it to end. Mussels, fabulous. Dessert was simple- sorbet and ice cream but flavors intense and delicious. Great service. A definite go-to place.

Friendly and so welcoming. The ambiance inside is excellent and decor in the main dining area left me in awe.
Chef Daniel made it again! (Went also to have dinner at Café Boulud and it was awesome) The DBGB has an extraordinary ambiance, great food, very nice service. I will return without a doubt.

Good food - I recommend the entrees over the burgers. Great presentation and great service.

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.
I was a bit disappointed with the experience at DBGB. Nothing was actually bad, but nothing of what we ordered stood out. It was an ok meal, I was just expecting a bit more from a Boulud's restaurant and for what we paid.
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.
Great Date Night Spot
