db Bistro moderne
Located one block east of Times Square in New York City, db bistro is the perfect spot for pre- and post-theater dining, a Midtown business lunch or breakfast “à L’Express”. Happy hour specials offered daily from 3-6pm.
It was here that Daniel Boulud launched the gourmet hamburger craze in 2001 that took the world by storm. The DB Burger, stuffed with red wine-braised short ribs and foie gras, continues to be a main attraction.
Our handsome bar area features a seasonal menu of dishes that can be enjoyed with exceptional wines and cocktails.
Excelente . All is very good
It was our second time here, last time dinner, this time lunch. Nice menu, great seating, and delicious. We will definitely return. Wine prices a bit high.
I had the famous hamburger. Over rated. Minimal taste and nothing special. Fries were one step above Wendi’s. This place is essentially a mediocre diner in dressed up garb. In a city where Daniel B is exceptional this is a big disappointment.
Great restaurant. Great service, Delicious food.
The ambiance, decor, service and quality of the food and beverages are premiere.
Our Sommelier, Brittany and our server Gustavo could not be more pleasant, knowledgeable and welcoming.
Food was spectacular.
We wanted a solid meal before our broadway show. This was much better than solid. All of us had different firsts and second courses / they were all excellent. Big standouts corn cavatelli and duck breast.
Service was excellent as well
The food was delicious and the portions were generous! They had a very nice selection on the pre fixe menu and the courses came out quickly, allowing us plenty of time to enjoy the food and get to the theater on time. Highly recommend this restaurant 😄
The food, service and atmosphere were terrific. I would highly recommend this restaurant for business or pleasure
Great spot for business lunch in midtown
We have dined at DB Bistro many times, and it has never disappointed. The service is impeccable and extremely friendly. The dishes come out so fast, you would think you are back in Paris.
Second time here still very good
Great restaurant, excellent service and the food it’s amazing
We had a wonderful experience! Chef Jackie and Chef Mike went above and beyond! All of our servers were spectacular! I cannot remember all of their names. Giovanni and Alahondro thank you! Most of all I appreciate all of you for looking after my son Zachariah!
Awesome food and service! They brought us extra dessert for our anniversary! Would definitely go back
Wine is pricey but food and service was good. I would go there again
Dinner was for a special occasion and the restaurant didn't disappoint - they treated us very special and sent out a beautiful Happy Anniversary celebration plate! Thank you.
Overall everything was great. Really liked the little desert at the end of the meal and biscotti with the cappuccino.
The burger did not really taste of fois gras or truffle. Hence overvalued for what it was in my humble opinion
Beautiful restaurant, perfectly prepared dishes and attentive service. The fixed price lunch is a great option. Cucumber gazpacho was refreshing and delicious. Halibut was pan seared with a golden brown exterior and moist, flaky interior. Molten chocolate cake was delicious and nicely proportioned to finish a three course lunch. A very nice restaurant conveniently located for theatre or midtown business.
Beautiful room. Delicious food. Great drinks. Excellent service. Our server Gus was fantastic.
Pleasant atmosphere, excellent service, good menu, very good food.
My wife’s food was cold. Thought the burger was not worth the money
sadly my burger was served rare when I asked for MEDIUM
wine was very good but expensive and the dessert was not freshly made despite the chocolate sauce being poured on it table side
disappointing quality food - especially at these prices!
This was a fantastic restaurant, with delectable food presented beautifully! It is in the perfect location, right near all the theaters! The profiteroles were amazing!! The service was impeccable!
A lovely, sedate spot. Hibiscus iced tea a winner (comes with it's own small pitcher of simple syrup - nice)
Lots of attention to detail and beautiful presentation. Portions small (good), prices high for that.
The prix fixe menu is an exceptional value. The food is always outstanding at db Bistro and the service really stood out in the best possible way during my last lunch. I love this place and highly recommend it.
was not happy with the duck dish, disappointing, as I can hardly chew on it properly
This restaurant was lovely. Food was excellent. Alcohol was very very expensive. Service was excellent.
Extremely attentive service and excellent quality of food.
Food & service were excellent! Not your very old hole in the wall French restaurant!
db remains a gem. The food was exquisite. We each had the prix fixe dinner: Sublime corn chowder for one; a delightful salad for the other. We both had the divine sole meuniere (well worth the supplement). So simple and elegant. Profiteroles for one dessert and cheese for the other. We could not have asked for a better meal.
Every member of the staff was truly friendly. It seemed that everyone was happy to be a work. They really made the evening special.
The dining room at db, in the back, is cozy and refined. It is a great spot for a special evening out.
Reminds me of a typical Bistro in Paris; Dover Sole was delicious and service was impeccable. We will continue to dine here regularly.
We're from Chicago and come to NYC every year for the US Open.
My wife looks forward to and HAS to have dbBurger each time....memorable!!
See you again....next year
We ordered cocktails and wine to specifically be served with our dinner. “Please give us some time to enjoy our cocktails before bringing our wine and food. “ We just had our second sip of our cocktails and all the food shows up. The wine did not come. Now, this is a fast food joint, not a place to come enjoy a meal.
I’ve been there a few times before and always liked the restaurant. The other night was very special, I had mentioned that it was my friend’s birthday, they came out at the end of the meal with a basket of freshly baked madeleines and a candle for her. She was so touched and appreciated. It was a good ending to a fun evening. We will definitely go back again.
As someone with a gluten- free vegan diet, I always search for restaurants that are mainstream
But can offer me a gourmet take. DB Moderne excelled and effortlessly prepared a great dinner
And dessert without missing a beat!!! My new go to place when going to the theater 🎭
Fixed price lunch was delicious and a great deal! Very nice, diverse options. The service is impeccable; welcoming but not overbearing. Wait staff extremely knowledgable about food and made great recs. None of the "everything on the menu is great."
Delicious lunch. One diner ordered the halibut. Cooked perfectly with clean, bright notes in the sauce.
The salmon was another winner. Again, cooked just right with a unique wild rice side.
Desert was shared - nectarine tart with frangiapanni crust and lemongrass ice cream.
We would definitely go back! Plus it is perfectly situated for theater goers. An easy, very few blocks to Theatre District in NYC.
Il famoso hamburger col fois gras un po’ deludente.
Wonderful dining experience. We got in after the theater rush and the place was quiet, but the food and service were still first class! Will definitely be back!
