We should have known right away when it's 6:30 on a Saturday night and only 7 people were in the restaurant, that something wasn't right. Ok, it's a little early but still. Bartender was great. Perfect cocktails and good wine. The slight issue was with the food. "Canned" veggies were fine but nothing great. It said pickled and fresh veggies. It could have been more pickled for my liking but again, it was fresh but boring and very boring artichoke dip. The chicken fried mushrooms were fun, creative and very D. Burke ish. The lobster ravioli was gross. Thick doughy pasta and previously frozen lobster meat piled high in a domed ravioli. It was watery and chewy. The rib eye was ordered medium rare with emphasis on the rare. It was medium rare but more medium. Again, fine but nothing great for $55. The manager came by to see why we only ate one of three ravioli and then said, the chef wants feedback. Always great to hear that. He described the ravioli filling as a mixture of lobster and shrimp. $41 for lobster and shrimp? The menu says lobster. Nothing about shrimp. We like Burke restaurants but this one feels like David forgot that he had it. To make up for it, they took my $6 cappuccino off the $215 bill.

Opted to try DBK for a business breakfast since I live in SoHo and hadn't ever been. Deeply average. The room is decent and sufficiently bright despite it being subterranean. Waiter was pleasant enough and service was fine. Menu is very limited for breakfast (just a handful of items) and it is augmented with a buffet. The buffet was also "ok" but pretty skimpy. Problem for this restaurant is that it is not differentiated in any manner from the 18 other places to eat which are frankly better in the neighborhood. I'm unlikely to return until the space gets re-jiggered into something other than DBK.

We have been there several times in the past. The service from the waiter was not good at all. My date was just into appetizers, ordered several. Then I ordered a dinner, just me. He was kind of annoyed about how we were ordering. The place wasn't busy, a lot of empty tables, so I am not sure what his problem was. The busboys were very helpful.

I paid in cash, the bill was $139, I gave him $200 and was asked 3 times, 1 by a tall lady who took my check and twice by the waiter... It took 15 minutes to get change...

The food is outstanding. The dining room is very bright and an open space. Our server Sam was lovely and the manager Jesse was outstanding. I came for Christmas dinner and realized my favorite dish Japanese Eggplant Parm was not on the menu. I called the day before and he made sure even though it was not on the menu both myself and my mom (she loves that dish too) were able to order it. I also ordered the beef tartare which was very tasty! I would definitely go back and recommend it highly to others.

The food was excellent but I felt the service was not was I was used to at a David Burke restaurant. Perhaps my expectations where too high . I felt like I had to seek out staff for services...

Did not meet my expectations.... sorry.

What a delightful lunch we had. The food was really exceptional - We had twins who were two - they loved it and there is not kiddie menu - an absolute must is the eggplant “parm” - the burger - one of the cities best - The staff was warm and lovely and happy to see two toddlers
My business partner had one of the craft cocktails and was raving about it, my husband the cider - and i thought The sparking rose was perfect - try the mushrooms - YUMMY - and the cake pops of course were a big hit with the kids - what a good choice for a “business” holdiday lunch

the Bacon is off the hook - hand cut made in house it was worth every penny!

Dinner Salad was fresh but lacked flavor.

The bread was true artisan bread - with each bite you could picture the baker kneeling every nook and corner - it not only look good but each different price was delicious.

the entries: i had a 2 inch thick ribeye which was cooked to perfections medium rare. It was a bit muscle but was seared and season perfectly, My Son had the Halibut a bit over cooked but tasty. My wife and daughter both had the Salmon cooked perfectly they both ate every piece.

we saved room for the Piecaken a bit disappointed as it tasted a bit stale and should have been retired earlier in the week.

we ended the evening with a delicious cup of hearty coffee and some of there homemade peanut butter brittle witch was delicious.

the service was attentive but not overly. Our family recommends with string 4 - we would have the money bread next time -

We ate Thanksgiving Dinner at David Burke Kitchen. It was delicious; the best turkey I've ever had. There were lots of choices for my whole family, many of whom don't prefer turkey. I can't wait to go back when it is not Thanksgiving.

We really enjoyed our meals at The David Burke Kitchen. The menu was varied enough for all tastes, and the food was very good. The restaurant has a good vibe and a relaxed atmosphere. I had read other reviews critical of the professionalism of the wait staff. If this is most important to you then you may be disappointed. But, the atmosphere and quality of the food was most important to our group and we were not disappointed.

This is a really good restaurant! I usually do not like carrot, but the side which is honey baby carrot is really great! The appetizer oyster is so delicious that we ordered two. The cocktail is nice as well. I like the waitress here, because we didn't know what to order so asked her for advise, and the food she recommended are so delicious!

This restaurant has a wonderful outdoor garden space -- unfortunately, there are no vegan friendly options on the menu (Broccoli with cheese sauce? No... Just NO.)

It is unfortunate that a restaurant in a HOTEL in the most progressive city in the world has such an archaic view of cuisine.

We arrived and found the dining room closed and were directed to the "garden" (outside bar/terrace with tables), which was the only option available for seating. We approached the host who was on his phone and literally jumped and yelled when he noticed us standing there. He joked about us not really needing a reservation (no one else was there at 8:00pm in NYC) and seated us at a table. We began looking over the menu while my husband chose a bottle of wine (he asked the server if the wine he chose was good and he said, "How would I know? We have like 200 wines here." While waiting for him to bring the wine, the weather was turning fairly chilly and then the wind picked up. We sat there a few minutes and realized this was only going to get worse so we got up and let the host know it was just too chilly to have to sit outside so we'd just find some other place for dinner. The entire atmosphere screamed "This restaurant will soon be closed for good." I like David Burke and was very disappointed with this experience.

This is one of the best places to bring friends and family! We had a fantastic meal with great drinks, and cuisine. There is something for everyone on the menu, yet everything is high quality and has fantastic flavor. You will never have "just chicken" here. Staff is friendly and helpful as well. Great overall experience one of the best in the city.

we made the mistake of ordering steak at a non steakhouse and was disappointed. i felt so rushed to place our order . we were seated and given the menu for maybe 5 min and was asked three times if we're ready. and when we weren't ready to place our dessert order we were told we had to place it then and there since we were there for restaurant week and the guy said "okay order this" and he kept tapping his pen like he was annoyed we weren't ready. he continues to make a comment and when i retorted to his comment he tried to be funny and told me to relax and enjoy my dinner. horrible service! i don't think i will be returning to this restaurant anytime soon. way too many options in nyc to return. there was a $25 supplement for the steak when i was told on the phone that it was $15. and when i asked about one of the dessert the waiter said loudly that there's a $10 supplement . i can read that there's a $10 supplement, i wasn't asking about the price i was asking about the dessert. so of course we ordered something haphazardly and it was maybe the worst dessert i have ever had and any restaurant. it's summer but they managed to find the most un-ripped peach in nyc. it was just not good and no one should order it especially for the price! the cheesecake lollipop was good and was the reason why i did return , but i don't think it's good enough for me to return for a third time.
