    Nice Pre-Theater Dinner

    We had a pleasant pre-theater dinner at DB Bistro Moderne last week. Upon our arrival I mentioned that we were pressed on time for a show so they were very fast and attentive. We chose the prefix dinner for $45.00 which was delicious - we both had the butternut squash soup, salmon and trout dishes and pear mousse and green tea cake and coffee. All very exquisite, lovely staff and we'll certainly return and bring more friends to this place.

    Over rated

    Honestly the restaurant is mediocre. The waiters forgot to serve us our bread until I noticed everyother table had something brought to them. The portions are small. The legumes salad was tasteless. Atmosphere is more for business dining and not cozy. Never returning.

    Bistro? Should be just DB Moderne

    Chose this little gem for the rep of Chef Daniel and it's proximity to Bdwy & GCStation and was not disappointed . We were greeted by a charming staff and seated right by the window . Our waiter was professional without being too familiar and the service staff very efficent. A very tasty bread w/dips were served and then we dined ... We started with the tuna tartare for me and smoked salmon for my dining companion. I asked for a small side of celery romalaude and our waiter did become a bit flustered, albeit in a "kind"way. It was barely visible in the smoked salmon appetizer - otherwise both were very good & refreshing. BUT WHY when the menu states that something is served with... are chefs sooooo chintsy with the accompainment, it was literally a few strands of celery while my special request was a full tablespoon. I mean they are not white truffles! For our mains I chose skate with field mushrooms which were no where to be found . I inquired very nicely and very nicely was brought a side of overly salted but very woodsy mushrooms. Unfortunately our waiter was a bit "curt" but still very professional after this kitchen lapse. The other entree was a bacon wrapped salmon and garnered cudo's for it's presentation & flavor. We both chose a very delicious glass of pinot which for $15 each barely had 3 sips and that is no exageration . Let it flow a bit more Daniel and maybe we'd of ordered another. For dessert our freshly brewed coffee's were accompanied by delectable morsels of house made warm madeleines that we'd ordered and were very ample for 2 to share along with a teeny plate of 3 tiny tastes of delicious confection gratis with our coffee, I think that person also mans the celeraic salad station . Overall very good experience with a few lapses but am sure to be back with a full wallet for another NYC Daniel "Bistro" plateful , uh , I mean Tablespoon full of gastro pleasure . If you want burger & fries keep walking , if you desire a "bistro" burger & pommes frite head to DB and bring lot's of "American presidents" to enjoy it with you !

    Good But Slow

    We went for restaurant week lunch. We got there at a few minutes after noon and for the 4 of us it took 2 hours to eat lunch! The wait to order was too long and the wait in between the 3 courses was unnecessarily long as well. That being said, the food was good, although I do think overpriced. As someone else had mentioned, I liked what I ate but I am not raving about it. Small pizza appetizer with caramelized onions and anchovies, flank steak with bearnaise sauce (very, very good!) and cheese plate for dessert. I would go back, but only if I had extra money in my pocket to burn.

    A great choice

    We went on a holiday weekend, figuring it had to be open because it was in a hotel. But the experience was so fine that I'd go back any time. What did I have? The best dish was a daily special of grilled sardines over ratatouille. But the whole evening was first-rate. One of my friends is an insanely picky eater--doesn't eat this, doesn't eat that--and the waiter was unfailingly helpful and pleasant.

    good foie gras burger!

    I had the foie gras burger and the escargot, both very good. they were out of pinot noir, which was obnoxious. i also had the duck confit which was also extremely good. good meal.

    Salt City

    This is my fourth visit to DB.I met with some friends for a night of fine dining and theater.Have been to all of Chef Boulud other fine restaurants.My friend had warned me about his most recent visit to DB.He expressed that the food was very salty.Having cut down my salt intake due to health, I specifically asked my server to prepare my food with NO SALT.My skate came back VERY salty.I was not pleased with the dish.Hope that the chef rethinks his approach to salt.Any spice should be subtle and enhance not overpower the food.
