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.)

Went here for dinner on a Friday night. I ordered the chicken under a brick. I liked that I was able to substitute Brussel sprouts for the mashed potatoes. My husband got the burger and said it was very good. Our drinks were well made and our server Jeff was excellent! Will be back and maybe try brunch next time.

As always food was excellent. Service is the best in the city in my book. Attentive, on time well mannered server. We go because of that service. 😁

Have been to dbar a number of times and it never disappoints! The food and drinks were great, they had a special 3-course meal and it was wonderful. The food and drink pairings were very nice. Because we were there late on a Friday night for dinner it transitioned into the usual Friday karaoke which was super fun as well.

The food was mediocre, so probably not for food. I came in on “Dine In” night, out of everything I had the soup was pretty good. I would recommend D-Bar for a drink for after work, for the environment etc...

We went for Restaurant Week and the menu for this was amazing. It was three courses and for an additional cost you could pair each course with a wine. What a great idea. We has mussels in a tomato sauce which was wonderful. I had the fish and my husband had the beef, very well done. Dessert was a chocolate cake and an almond cake, very tasty. Kudos to our food server Sharon, made us feel welcome and she was very professional.

I love Dbar! The food and cocktails are always fabulous, but the service is even better. I've always found that the staff at Dbar genuinely want to give you the best experience, and they will happily go out of their way to do so. Don't miss this Dorchester gem!

First time for brunch and it was great! Decent bloody mary selection and I enjoyed the drink and baked lobster omelet. Steak and eggs looked pretty good to if you enjoy that combination.

The Dbar is such a cool inviting spot. The food is delicious and the wait staff are always awesome! I never had a waiter I didn’t love and feel like he was my friend at the end of dinner!
I brought 3 friends with me this time who had never been and they enjoyed themselves.
Awesome venue!

We had to wait a bit for our reservation since it was so busy. The amazing staff was so nice and apologetic and sent out deserts for the table.

The food was delicious, the staff was wonderful and very attentive. I would definitely go back!

Best Mac and cheese ever. Vietnamese fries were okay but a little dry, and the Cilantro seemed to be separate rather than cohesive to the dish. The chicken sliders were crispy and fresh - delicious. The service was amazing.

When we want to have a great meal, excellent service and a fun celebration, we have relied on dBar as the place to go. We didn’t have to get too dressed up, and the food and seasonal changes make this restaurant a fun place to go all year round. I had the veal Osso Bucco and it was so filling that I was struggling. My husband had the roasted cod to his delight. I am so very happy that we have not been disappointed with any meal we’ve had. Our server Dominic was attentive and laid back making the whole night more enjoyable. Thank you to the DBar staff as I will always visit for a great tasteful meal that is intricate and full of flavor.

I had a great time at dbar. Food was good and the service was excellent. Mookie was appropriately attentive but not intrusive. Drinks and food arrived in a timely manner. The lobster omelette came recommended highly and it met expectations. The Pomosa was very interesting. Would like to try other variations on the mimosa next time.

One of my absolute favorite places to eat in Boston. I love trying different things on the menu and have never once been disappointed! When it's nice out, the back patio is a great place to enjoy your meal. The cocktails are great as well. Beyond that, Dbar has such a fun atmosphere.
