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.)

dbar Ratings and Reviews
Creative food excellently prepared. It's delicious comfort food. For appetizers we had the sausage plate and shared a confit duck grilled cheese. Super. Mains included a beef bourguignon, beet tagliatelli with crispy beets and buratta ball, pan seared cod, and bricked chicken. I could tell you which was my favorite, I'd eat any of them again.
Service by Johnny was exceptional, even decrumbing the table before the mains. This is a bar in Dorchesta! We were there early on a Sunday evening, clearly they have music some nights so I think you could have a great time there besides the food.
Interesting menu with delicious food and great, friendly service. I want to go back and try more things. My husband and I split the kale salad and the crab cake as appetizers. Nicely presented salad and prepared so that the kale was delicate (unlike the preparations at most restaurants!). I ordered the cod and it had a crisp, flavorful outside (I hesitate to call it a crust, because it was so light) that highlighted the tender fish.
The food here never disappoints, and this weekend was no exception. The seared Cod over fingerling potatoes, sweet cord and bacon lardons was just amazing! The blood orange cosmo -
equally delicious! My date's pork chop with sausage and spaetzle was also fantastic. Really can't go wrong here!
First time to dbar and we loved it! Quick date night while we were in the area. Parking lot was full but grabbed a spot on the street without a problem. Friendly host, accommodated our preference to dine at the bar. Great selection of drinks, my husband let the bartender choose his beer and he loved it. I enjoyed my Reisling. We had the figs stuffed with goat cheese wrapped in prosciutto, grilled street corn and carnitas tacos. It was so nice to be served by staff who were friendly and seemed happy to work there. We will definitely be back!
Upon entering I was greeted and seated quickly. Our server came promptly, greeted us politely and gave great recommendations. Very impressed with our server since he checked up on us often enough to make sure everything was perfect (which it was). Atmosphere was great, and me and my company never felt like we were rushed (to leave), unwanted, or disrespected. The food was also delicious!
We went too early for weeknight dinner. 6:00 on Thur. Only diners there... Everything was great and plentiful. All candles were lit. I just wish there were more people to watch. That's not their fault in any way. Excellent service , seating, greeting and food.
Desert of passion fruit cheesecake was over the top delicious!
Dbar never disappoints. Great cocktails, delicious and creative food, excellent staff. Always fun. Our waiter John, on Monday night 8/7, was attentive and super sweet. GO and make a ressie on busy nights as it's a popular neighborhood spot. Black and white movies, show tune sing-a-longs and dancing after dinner service ends. You will enjoy yourself.
Took my wife here for her Birthday. Food was amazing and the service was exceptional! Great selection of beer, wine & spirits. It was raining so we weren't able to check out the outdoor area.
We look forward to going back.
We do a monthly friends get together for a social group here monthly. Dbar always treats us really well! Friday's are karaoke so it gets pretty loud after 10 pm but the food is always good and the staff is always pretty nice and welcoming. Parking is fair.. if you want to park in the lot you have to watch like a hawk for a space lol.. but there is a decent amount of street parking. We enjoy this venue a lot and will continue to book our event there.
