Was my nieces 16th birthday dinner and everything was outstanding.
Would come back in a heart beat.
Brunch at dB Moderne was a wonderful prelude to a Broadway matinee. The restaurant is cozy and stylish. The brunch menu offers a good variety of dishes. The chicken paillard with arugula was delicious and my husband enjoyed the Croque Madame. Don’t miss the Tarte Tatin for dessert.
Service is especially smooth and professional.
We enjoyed our brunch and looking forward to return!
Excellent service and excellent food!
We had a splendid table and service was impeccable. Food was great, had one jour fixe and portions were great. Will go back for sure!
A quaint place that has great food and a touch of old NY!
Great food. Accommodated wife's food allergies. Excellent location for pre-show dinner.
Another great lunch, and excellent food. Risotto and of course the burger, both highly recommended.
I have eaten here at least a dozen times and it never disappoints!
Perfect pretheater Sunday brunch
Just incredible. Best service. Amazing food. Great wines.
Excellent food, a bit noisy as it got later. Attentive service. Portion size was wonderful and the value excellent!
Great service good value
What an amazing experience - the service and the food all excellent. We had wine and the 2 course fixed price lunch and they brought me warm Madelines for my birthday ! I had the pumpkin soup which was a special and the Chiclen Paillard - both amazing !
Always our first dinner when we visit NY. People always nice. Food always good. Last night scallops for me and risotto with white truffles for my wife. Wonderful.
Prompt and efficient service. Prix fixe meal was outstanding. Great wine list.
Casual but a touch of class.
Excellent food service. A bit noisy to be able to carry on conversations but that maybe due to acoustics of the place. Front end by the bar was louder, middle section where we sat was still a bit noisy, but there is another section further back that may be quieter. Otherwise highly recommend
Family joined me in the city for lunch
Seriously amazing food and service. The taleggio risotto with tartufo Bianco is the best deal in town.
Great pre-show dinner. Great service and food.
We enjoyed our meals and would definitely go back. My fish was cooked perfectly. Service was very good. It’s a compact dining room and tables are close together making for a noisy environment.
It was ok!
Great food. Even better than I remember it.
Appetizer excellent but fish overcooked
Fantastic food, extraordinarily good service, and astonishingly good value (particularly for Manhattan). My wife is a foodie and tough critic, and even she was blown away. Highly recommended!
We enjoyed an exceptional dinner pre-theater. The food was delicious, the service excellent and we were served within our time constraints without being rushed through three courses. Highly recommend!
Just about everything was excellent. The bread was superb, usually a good omen for the meal. The appetizers of pumpkin soup and brussels sprout salad were both excellent. Our entrees, the filet and halibut, were also great, though our only complaint was the filet came out slightly overdone, medium instead of medium-rare. The taste was still great. Overall a great meal and we would definitely return.
Worth every penny and more!! An outstanding meal with solid service
What a pleasure to have a meal that looks great and is great
Pre theatre menu was perfect for us. Wide variety of choices, good size portions, great value. Definitely put our evening off to a great start!
Enjoyed this dining experience fully. Food was outstanding. Service was par excellence.
Pre-theater. Service is always exceptional: quick, friendly, attentive, warm and generous.
Although we had reservation for brunch they tried to seat us in the bar room-looked much less comfortable and festive.
After a short delay they did find a very nice table in corner of the dining room.
Food and service were very good and my guests particularly liked it all-
We had very good salads first,then a salmon and chicken palliard main course, and one omelet-,
A nice pre theatre experience-especially for out of town relatives-
The food was very good but the portions were too small and the prices were ridiculous (even for NYC)
Excellent service, moderate portions,,, great for brunch before a matinee. Always a great experience
Very good food and good location in mid-town
The food and the service were good but the busboys could have been more attentive. The maître 'd sat us in the bar area in a high top table next to the waiters/busboy station. It was very noisy and I felt like was being hovered over for the entire evening with activity next to my wife and I continuously. This is inexcusable and we will not be returning.
The food was excellent, the service less so. A side item we asked for was forgotten and the general attentiveness was not what we thought it should be for the price. But they did remember my husband's birthday and we went home with a nice basket of homemade madeleines : )
We had a prefixed menu for lunch. Few choices with a surcharge. Service and quality of the food were poor based on what we paid
Very relaxed and very comfortable.
Not what it used to be
