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.)

Not my first Rodeo at dbar. I always enjoy myself there. Really good food, excellent service, knowledgeable staff, decent value. Certainly helps that it is very close to where I live. Great having them in Dorchester.

Me and my husband eat here about 1x per week. The food is great, the drinks are fab and the staff is amazing. It gets pretty loud so if you are looking for a place to talk and cant project your voice you may get frustrated. After tasting the food it will be worth it!!

We were celebrating a birthday so I decided to make a reservation and add a note about bringing over a lil dessert. From the moment we walked in, til after we walked out, Thais place was fantastic! The garlic Bloody Mary was uber garlicky but could’ve used a bit of spice to enhance the flavor but that was honestly our only thought the whole meal. Steak and eggs were superb, as was everything else we ordered! Device was spectacular, warm, friendly and funny. Will definitely be returning. Thanks!

We found the reviews on open table and booked it after an airport pickup. This was a casual contemporary spot with far better food than we would have expected. We never would have stopped otherwise but the review on open table helped us find this gem!!

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.

Highly recommend.
