Diner Reviews
  • "The overall experience is reliably very good (although extremely noisy), which is why it's great for special occasions."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Wine: Eduardo the sommelier was just wonderful. With his help we discovered a truly amazing wine. Food: Bob, made wonderful suggestions for food. We loved the crispy pig foot! Bar: I forget the bartenders name but we shared a special moment over tequila and mezcal. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. Everyone was so attentive and happy. We'll be back for more!"

  • "The food tasted great. However, it felt like a tease because the portions were small. We left, not hungry, but we definitely felt we were not satisfied with the amount of food served. Don't go to this restaurant really hungry. We liked our waiter. It was really nice that the birthday girl was given a desert on the house. However, we got billed for the said desert and had to ask the waiter to take the charge off the bill. It turned s nice gesture into an unpleasant event. We were also overcharged for a desert ordered. The restaurant has good reputation so we expected more."

  • "This place gets busy! Definitely recommend a reservation on a weekend. Everything about this place was top notch. A reviewer on another site called this place a "glorified hot dog stand" and they couldn't have been more wrong! This restaurant has something for every taste. Wait staff is very attentive and made the evening for our group. Can't wait to go back to NYC and DBGB again!"

  • "For a Daniel B place we were underwhelmed. Service was spotty and slightly arrogant (but hey, it's NY!). Why is it becoming the norm that a thank you when you leave is not needed anymore?? Food was fair."

  • "Incredible Thai sausage. Incredible beer and wine list. Knowledgeable staff help."

  • "loud and smelled like a diner- the food was from the kitcehn was wafting throughout the dinner room and not in a good way."

  • "Highly recommend this restaurant for brunch. Sausages and burgers are crazy good - very tasty. Portions fairly small so try different dishes to share"

  • "First time we went to DBGB was during restaurant week and really enjoyed ourselves - excellent food, good service, though really noisy. Second time only brunch menu was available, and it was rather uninspired - not much flavor despite good ingredients. We waited for our entree for over 30 minutes. After that we could not get anybody's attention to get dessert and coffee. After 3 attempts, we got the check only after we started putting on the coats. Too bad - DBGB is really convenient for Public Theatre, which we frequently attend."

  • "Daniel Boulud. At a reasonable price for New York. The noise level is a problem, but it seems to be ubiquitous. Do we need blasting music combined with the chatter of a huge crowd? The answer in the city is, yes, if you want to be edgy, you need to do this. But, the food compensates at DBGB."

  • "Our first visit and we'll definitely be back again. Everything was delicious!"

  • "This restaurant knows how to season food so that you taste a play on sweet, salty, tart, spicy, and smoky---hmm, hmm good. Presentation was excellent and they served portions that you could eat in one sitting (no need for a doggy bag). This was eating--an expression on artful seasoning served with waist-friendly portions that isn't overbearing on your tummy. The salmon was perfectly crispy and well-marinated; the white mushroom mixed with the green sauce was a delictable treat with the cous cous. Highly recommended!"

  • "We took out-of-town friends to DBGB and we all LOVED it. Fabulous food, wait staff. Wonderful experience overall. There were 5 in our group and none of us left a bite on our plates. Would highly recommend."

  • "i arrived early for our 5pm reservation in hopes that we would be seated promptly, since the dining room was empty. (they open at 5). they wouldn't seat us until 5:17 because "the waiters were having a meeting" and since we had a show to go to, that hurt our schedule a bit. i sprung for the 42 dollar steak, because i assumed for that price it would be done right. when it finally arrived, the medium-rare was served to me medium-well, which means it didn't really have much flavor and was quite dry. since we were on a tight schedule, i just had to eat it. i've eaten here before and it was good, which is why i gave it three stars, but they need to get their service level up to the standard that i know daniel bouloud would want. Staff was nice!"

  • "Visiting New York for the weekend and stopped in for Sunday brunch. It was amazing! Two in our group did the prix fixe and it was a great value. The leek soup was amazing, one of the best things ever tasted. I tried the Vermont sausage to start and it was so tasty. The sausage was cooked to perfection and the flavours were expertly combined. The waffle was so tasty! And everything was reasonably priced. They had an excellent selection of cocktails as well!"

  • "Went there with friends and family, all relaxed and experienced persons from all over the world, to have a fun evening. The food was quite ok, but the noise level and music was extreme and that turned the whole experience to a negative one, it was simply impossible to hear eachother at the table. We tried to politely point this out, but only got a "thanks for your feedback" response."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "DBGB is definitely one of a kind! My boyfriend and I had a great time! The waiter was very attentive and answered any questions we had about the menu and wines. I was able to have a conversation without having to talk loud. We loved the quality and taste of the pasta (which we ordered), and the creative way the snails were interpreted (instead of the traditional garlic and butter variety). It was definitely impressive and the dessert was the perfect ending to a perfect meal."

  • "During our layover in New York I had dinner with most of my fellow crew members at DBGB! We all loved the place. Also the fact that it is a great place to meet at the bar before sitting down at the table. Excellent service, delicious food, great ambiance."

  • "last ate here 2 years ago, have to say that the standard has taken a big tumble"

  • "Went here for the beer. Several IPA's on Tap. Tries the Iceberg Wedge (awesome) and a Tunisian Sausage. I'm not much of a meat guy, but the sausage went well with the Hoppy Brew!"

  • "We had dinner out Saturday night at DBGB and we had a great time. I loved the decor and food. It was an amazing night, and DBGB is a new favorite! The bourbon chocolate sundae is a must have. DBGB is my new favorite place!"

  • "Went for a sunday brunch with my girlfriends. The Frenchy Burger is delicious and the french toast is a must: moist and balanced flavor! Really enjoyed the place and the ambience!"

  • "What a wonderful rmeal and the restaurant is beautiful without being stuffy ! Would come back again! We also had a great waitress!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My server was exception however when we asked to move from a table to a booth, the manager came over and made up an excuse about needing the table in 45 minutes. She said if you want to scarf down the food and leave, you can sit there. She then sat 3 parties at booths who were all there 45 minutes later. Past that, she was rude and not polite. Past this, a wonderful experience."

  • "Lovely food!! We went to try restaurant week offerings here, but the a la carte menu items were too tempting!! Fried trotter is a must! Actually order anything (and we did!) and you cannot go wrong!! Attentive service and intimate, but open modern pub type atmosphere. Go to DBGB at once!"

  • "Came for restaurant week but opted to go off the regular menu. Everything was great, but nothing was completely memorable. Bottle of wine was a steal for $35 and delicious. Had the honey baked eggplant, lamb sausage, Frenchie burger and bourbon sundae. Best thing was the burger, including some delicious fries. Wished we had chosen the lava cake over the sundae; definitely something I could make at home instead. Awesome scene and awesome ambiance. I'd definitely go back."
