DBGB- New York Ratings and Reviews

The cucumber soup, rather than subtle and soothing, was sour and spicy. The Nero d'Avola mediocre. Otherwise food quite good. Front room appealing though noisy. The large back room strikes me as grim, very corporate.

The place is really noisy, there was only one bathroom for a huge restaurant where males and females had to wait on line to use it. The food was mediocre and overpriced ($30 for an overcooked salmon that had nothing special). The service was excellent, though. The host gave us the quietest table if there is such a thing in that restaurant. The waiter took away a dish that we were not happy with (cucumber gazpacho, they never mentioned yogurt or too much lime) and the manager came to top a glass of wine that came too empty.

This was our second visit to DBGB and it lived up to our expectations. If you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere where you can sink you teeth into tasty, well-prepared meat, then you should consider dining here.

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 D ...
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
