    Food was mediocre at best. Both our apps and entrees were bland and were drowned in sauce which tasted like it came from a can or jar. Save your money and go to Jockey Hollow or 90 Acres instead.

    The decor and presentation are great. Other than that nothing is right. (Sorry to say!) Service: Obviously short staffed in the kitchen as service is extremely slow. Waited over 30mins for a cup of cappuccino then another 15 mins for appetizers (so total of 45 mins). Waitress is nowhere to be seen after orders were taken and item was missing. Managers walked by us when helped was needed. Left hungry at the end. The worst is, they spilled water on my handbag without any apology. Do not recommend for now unless service is improved. Very disappointed. I wanted to love this place.

    Overall great experience but our side dishes came out VERY long after our entrees did. We were halfway through eating when they finally arrived. Not what I'd expect from a celebrity chef's establishment, especially since the dining room was empty at the time we ordered. Cocktails were very weak so I'd stick to straight alcohol next time. The food was delicious, though! The atmosphere was very nice and our waiter was attentive. We would definitely give it another chance."

    Food was outstanding. Menu, wine and cocktail offerings were broad and expansive. Something for everyone. The only area of improvement would be to have a higher level server. For the upscale caliber establishment that 1776 is I would expect a more seasoned and knowledgeable server. Our server was polite but not the most polished and knowledgeable. Example: was not familiar with the desserts and was clueless when we requested a Oban on the rocks...basic stuff. That said, I'll be back soon!

    Dining is not only what you taste, but what you smell as well. The manager didn’t seem to understand that. We were already seated about to have mains when they seated a couple next to us where the woman used an egregious amount of cheap perfume. I asked the manager politely if he could address the issue and he said he couldn’t. Our section by the main entrance lobby against the wall had no other tables taken but ours at the time, and the couples’ table next to us was being serviced by a different waiter than ours. When we left, the couples’ table was still the only one occupied in our section of eight tables that had only 2 and 4 person tables. So the manager couldn’t or wouldn’t try? You spend just under $300 before tax for food and drink for a family of 4 and ask how the food was? Shame on you. The manager gets a grade of an F. The appetizers were great. They really were. But we could hardly taste what came after because it was blanketed by the strong scent that eviscerated our food. On the Open Table app, it’s standard to ask if it was a special occasion. It was. It was our son’s 18th birthday. We were up for dessert prior to the mains coming, but your failure to “manage” drove us away. On my family’s behalf, I didn’t want to further ruin the evening and make a scene at the restaurant, but damage had already been done. So disappointed to have an experience like that. Please don’t tell me that you represent this kind of service at all David Burke restaurants.

    Food was great. Service staff needs more training. Entrees came out before drink order. Confusion about what table ordered what. And they dumped my take home bag. They recovered nicely, however, by offering me a new entree to take home.

    We started off with the Sushi and Lobster dumplings which were very good. There was 3 of us and the main meals were just ok, nothing great. We had one meal that the server forgot to put in. At times we didn’t see our server for a long time. The location of the restaurant is incredible.

    My experience at David’s Burke 1776 was extremely outstanding. The food was out of this world and staff is very personal. I highly recommend this place to everyone and yes they have valet parking. It’s also have a good location located in Morristown across the street from the park a.k.a the square. I will definitely be back!

    Don’t think it’s worth it at all. Caesar/kale salad didn’t have enough dressing on it and the kale was overpowering. My husband ordered steak that was supposed to be medium, it came out rare. My steak was supposed to be medium well and it was burnt. The only good food was the side dishes - French fries and the mashed potatoes. The computers went down while we were there so they couldn’t print our check or run the credit cards. The 5 managers I’m guessing, made it very noticeable that was issues going on. They were talking very loud, and telling the staff what was going on right there in front of people sitting at their tables! This should have been handled out of site. They wanted us to write down our credit card number on a the back of the bill, umm no thank you! You can go down the street and get better service, food and cheaper at Chef Freddys or Roots.

    I have been to at least 4 of David Burke's other dining places so when I heard he had opened in Morristown we jumped at a chance to eat there. All of his other places had good food and an ambience that was very pleasant. This is a loud bar atmosphere and the meal was inconsistent. When we told the server the there was a problem with the mussels they merely nodded their head and took the dish away. I would have expected a bit more concern for our issue. That will probably speak volumes about the place.

    We took advantage of “Burger night”. I ordered a Cosmopolitan to start and requested “very light cranberry juice”. The drink came back as pink as could be. This wasn’t the first time that this happened here. So maybe they just ignore those type of drink requests. But at the very high cost of the drink they really need to get this right. I had the guacamole and chips as my appetizer. It was good. Others in my party ordered the available salads which they enjoyed. As for the burgers - they weren’t cooked to our preference. I ordered a medium rare burger and it was more like medium well. The accompanying French fries were cold and inedible. I am not sure I will give them another chance.

    Highlights are location, ambience and service. Bartenders can be outstanding and creative but not consistent as they “run out” of key ingredients for several drinks on multiple occasions. Food quality is good, but creativity is below what you’d expect. Value is low as you’re paying high price for the location, ambience and it being “the new place to be” right now.

    Excellent restaurant for food, ambiance and great energy! Loved the clothesline bacon and the popovers which are HUGE! The filet mignon and the "special" lamb chops were terrific. As well as the vegetable pizza for our vegetarian. All delicious and perfectly cooked. Enjoyed the drinks and the many dessert options. Looking forward to going back.
