Contemporary American
Open 7 days a week, dbar is a full service restaurant that seamlessly transforms into a nightclub and lounge as the night goes on. Formally an old school Irish pub filled with mahogany charm, dbar has been renovated into a hip chic hot spot. With warm glowing candles & long leather banquettes, dbar offers a casual and comfortable atmosphere that attracts clientele from Dorchester and surrounding areas. The unique and classy menu inspired by Executive Chef Christopher Coombs changes with the seasons and features the finest and freshest available ingredients throughout the New England area. Most of the menu takes a French twist, but also contains an assortment of comfort foods (such as our famous Veal & Pancetta Bolognaise) and old favorites (like our simple yet delicious Giannone Chicken Under a Brick.)

The food at Dbar never fails to impress. We attended the wine pairing dinner, and the food was amazing. Great value. We walked away full.

Dinner for 3 at this Lil Gem!
Attention from door to table was spot on with just the right amount of interruptions during service without being overbearing. Ambiance was moderate yet lively although if you have sensitive ears as I do (the acoustics are in full force) you'll soon get over it with a few delicious cocktails. Very casual atmosphere which plays to couples of both sides and gender friendly restrooms.

Chilled Watermelon Gazpacho = 7 of 10 (refreshing, but needed just a small bite for the summer bowl.)
Spicy Shrimp Linguine = 9 of 10 (Spice was just right, and lingers as well. LOVED IT!!!)
Virgin Island-Almond sponge cake = 6 of 10 (loved the cake...tart-passion sorbet will kill the palate if you've drank red wine, and the paired wine is a bit too sweet...opt for another wine, or sparkling instead.)

First time at dbar, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just found out it's affiliated with Deuxave which also has great food. Dbar is more low key but still wonderful food. Everyone was very helpful in choosing the food & wine. I'll definitely go back next time in Boston.

We dined on the outdoor patio this past Saturday evening. The area was spotless and framed by gorgeous flowers and bistro lights. We were a party of three, and started with the “Arancheesy” balls as an appetizer. My daughter had the salmon, which was delicious, my husband had the pork chop entree which was huge and cooked to perfection. I finished it off with the Crispy Pan Seared Cod, very flavorful and perfectly cooked. As always my cocktail was delicious ( Orange Blossom Cosmo). Our server Seán was knowledgeable and efficient, excellent service. DBar never disappoints!

Dinner was delicious. Our server seemed annoyed and there was NO ac. Ugh too warm to enjoy dinner and typically we sit back and drinks but literally too hot inside without AC and our server was a grump.

Disappointed.

Dbar always punches above its weight class. The food is on par with some of the best in any Boston neighborhood and at a great value. Service is casual but professional and matches the atmosphere. We ordered the salmon and cod; they were both cooked and seasoned perfectly. We sat on the patio which has a more intimate atmosphere than indoors and it was a perfect night to dine al fresco. I love taking people who have never been for dinner and they’re always impressed and want to come back. Looking forward to coming again soon!

A beautiful night for dining outdoors. The garden sights and sounds transported us to another place, making us forget we were on a main drag in Boston. The staff was awesome and very accommodating. Only the food surpassed the help!

When I arrived you reservation could not be found. (I had booked a reservation through Open Table) Luckily I had a copy of my reservation on Open Table, so After a few minutes the hostess was able to seat us. Just wondering what caused this to happen. The food and the server were great. The evening turned out to be great.
