In the past, we always were thrilled when dining out at dBar. Unfortunately this time, it was a disappointment. Was it because this was the first time inside? Everything felt mediocre: ambience, food, even service wasn't as good as it used to be. Don't know what happened.
dbar has done an incredible job setting up outside dining - heat lamps, well spaced tables, expanded space.
The menu is smaller than it has been in the past. The service feels sporadic and, hard to say it, masked wait staff just isn't the same friendliness that makes this place amazing. The food was just ok - not the same as it has been previously. Not sure if it is the current challenges or a change in kitchen staff. I hope to go back and continue to support this place -- the neighborhood needs it.
Always a treat! Food and service is excellent. I hope the outside seating is available all year round. I can’t believe that we didn’t catch our server’s name! He made our night!
Very safe with a comfortable, attractive atmosphere (they had heat lamps hanging from above and also standing up). Will definitely be back!
Safe. Cozy. Cool.
Service was wonderful and our meal was excellent! The outdoor space is clean, safe and really nice.
Always outstanding. Even during these pandemic times, they manage to keep some of the funky ambience while making everyone feel safe!
We were late for our reservation which was at 7:30, but wasn’t aware they closed at 8 due to adjustment in business hours due to COVID, so the kitchen was already closed when we arrived, nonetheless they checked with the kitchen and allowed us to seat and order and we had an delicious dinner, which included the swordfish which I would highly recommend! Thank you Dbar!
Love eating on the patio! Great ambience, and good service! Drinks are fantastic! The bolognese is disappointing! Pasta seemed like the target brand from a box and was undercooked. Could have saved $22 and made it better at home!
Had a fabulous time at Dbar. This place never disappoints! The food, drinks, and staff are amazing! Love the new back patio extension. Will be back ASAP :)
I have always enjoyed my past experiences at dbar, but I would not recommend dbar during Covid. The outside seating consisted of loud music with patrons jumping from table to table. This included some screaming and yelling. This is understandable at a night club, but not for brunch during Covid.
It was great as usual. However, it was cold inside due to the patio space open doorway. Perhaps install heavy vertical plastic strips in the doorway?
dBar has created an excellent outdoor dining experience, and as always the food is super.
Just a night out with friends. We loved the outdoor heaters.
Always great, my fave neighborhood spot. The new menu has good choices, the staff are always the friendliest in town, and the re-vamped patio is really fun and well done with heat lamps.
I always have a good experience. I am a regular customer and will remain one.
Usually very good - last 2 times not so good - Hoping all will improve
Drinks were good :)
Love dbar and am a regular. On this experience seasoning across the board was definitely missed. It was the first time every that I felt I needed to ask for salt and pepper. So not typical.
Amazing experience as always. Day outside in the new outdoor space and enjoyed every minute. Staff knows how to be attentive yet not bothersome!!
Great experience as always. Have frequented DBar for quite some time. Enjoyed the expanded patio dining area.
Excellent menu and always consistent with service and food quality.
Amazing food, service, and atmosphere. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Great food and service. Love the new patio updates and the attention to safety guidelines. Felt very comfortable enjoying one of our favorite spots.
Amazing food and service per usual. My first time visiting since they added the outdoor patio and it is just the cutest!!
DBAR never disappoints. The Chicken under a brick is amazing, as is the service and cocktails. The new Covid related outdoor space is very cool !!! Thank you Dbar!!!
Beautiful atmosphere, their outdoor patio is so perfectly done.
Always amazing. Fantastic food, impeccable and friendly service and great location. Dbar has it all! Don’t miss!
Everything was perfect. Drinks, wine, food and the server really went above and beyond.
The food is very good! in my pinion they should add a steak to their menu :)
I had fish and it was great!
Anthony, our server, was very attentive and professional! Added greatly to the overall experience.
Dbar has never failed us. We go there 2-3 each month. They’re making the best of COVID by adding heaters for the patio.
Patio is very spacious and comfortable, food is great, and service was awesome!
Dbar is both a neighborhood place and destination dining. The menu is small but engaging and well executed. Staff successfully walks that fine line of being both friendly and professional. Management should be commended for successfully maneuvering amidst the pandemic and staying Covid-safe but still welcoming. Dorchester locals and the LGBTQ community both feel equally at home at dbar with its trendy/friendly vibe.
Great atmosphere and service plus delicious food!!
So happy to dine at dBar again! Same excellent food and service, we'll be back for sure.
Everything was great from the signature cocktail to the grilled peach and candied pecan kale salad to the pan seared cod on a bed of fresh vegetables and gnocchi. All delicious!
Wonderful and comfortable dining experience on their renovated outdoor dining patio. Beautiful and creative environment fitting thier food and service.
Food was excellent. Arancheesy balls and chicken sandwich. Drinks were excellent. Wish the menu was a little bigger.
Poor vegetarian menu. We’re seated “outside “ but inside a metal container with 3 walls around us and large party (6) next to us. Basically we were “boxed” in a corner with poor air circulation. Not COVID-19 recommend
Great for a date night
