DBGB Kitchen & Bar
Posted by anonymous on 02/26/2010
Went there for the price fixe lunch and was overall very pleased. Had the tuna tartare app, the mussels main and the sundae dessert. I was very impressed with the quality and quantity of mussels and service was really good in being on top of removing the shell plates. The dessert was good but would've liked something more inventive. For $25 I thought overall it was a good deal. I also really liked the decor- the quotes all over the walls in the front room and outside is interesting and the inside-out kitchen look in the dining room is very cool. I would say it's not really a place to go w/ vegetarians :).

Had the burgers menage with friends. Although we're not connoisseurs by any stretch, these burgers didn't come close to the Shack, Bill's Bar, or Royale. Perhaps we should have ordered other dishes, although we did hear specifically about the DBGB burgers. Or is it the hype and the trendy scene that force great reviews from people?

From the moment we arrived we were enjoying ourselves. The open walls to the kitchen lend to the great energy of the space. The menu was interesting with a lot to choose from, even if you don't eat meat. Our waiter was a little cold, but the service was good overall. We will return.

Great food. Staff was knowledgable and extremely accommodating to a friend with several dietary restrictions.

We waited over an hour for our reservation, luckily they gave us complimentary champagne but the food was definitely not worth the wait

I was there Saturday for brunch, not realizing you could have "brunch" at a French bistro. We were told to "take your time but hurry" to order because the kitchen was closing in half an hour; the portions were the size of samples, my boudin tasted delicious but was just that, a taste. The waiter could not pronounce the names of any of the cheeses on the board and, by the way, Mr. Boulud, for $18 you could do better than these 5 slivers of cheese and serve them with real French bread and butter. This was the least "French" French bistro I have been to so far.

I see alot of bad reviews here. But we went on Sunday night with my husband. We happened to walk by and decided to try it. The menu is very charcruterie type. The place was empty when we arrived around 8pm. Surprised since it's a "it" spot. Seated in the middle of the resaurant since all the banquets were taken. Our server was so nice and since he wasn't busy was able to talk to us and help us out ordering. We started with a rillette, which next to getting it in France was delicious. You could tell it was not out of a can. We also got the Bourgignon. The way the quail egg was done was amazing in my book. We shared for dinner one sausage duo and a frenchie burger. It was cooked med-rare and the toppings were perfect. We shared a millefeuille for dessert which was nice but not wow. I did order a tea and since it was loose-leaf which puts bags to shame. My husband and I love food and don't get out much often, especailly to places that are "in". It was a quiet night which probably made all the difference. I wouldn't get the same service or quality on a packed saturday night. If you can go do so just avoid a peak hour time.
