One if the best meals in my life. Staff is outstanding and the food was Devine. Been a long time diner and they never disappoint. Can’t wait to go back.
Wonderful experience and we especially appreciated that the restaurant observed our request in open table for a table and not a banquet. Well dine!
A terrific place to dine. Great cooking, presentation and service coupled with good value too.
After a busy day of walking and shopping it was a wonderful respite and a tremendous value.. each selection as a 3 course Prix Fixe was better than the one before..
Daniel Boulood's bistro is an excellent restaurant. The starters werr all quite good. The Steak Frites and the Scallop entrees were very good and the service was top notch.
db Bistro used to be reliably excellent. It has declined both in food and service.
Fabulous lunch before a show. The pumpkin soup was especially good and my husband thought his escargot was outstanding. The service was attentive and friendly. Loved everything about the experience.
Great service. Awesome steak frites and risotto.
We stopped here before seeing a show on Broadway. They had a good 3 course fixed price option with choices from the nice menu. Our choices were quite well done and nicely served. We had a good enough experience to decide that we should invite friends next time. 😎‼️
This is our go to restaurant before shows in NY, the location and food so good. This time our service was not as stellar as usual, but to their credit, it is Christmas season and it was very very crowded. All our orders were correct though and the food as great as always. A Happy Anniversary delicious treat brought to our table at the end. Be assured we will return.
I enjoy all of Daniel’s restaurants! This one is great and mush more casual than Daniel.
Excellent service and food - a really happening place for a Thursday night. Great restaurant right next door to our hotel (Sofitel on 44th)
We loved our evening here. The food and service was outstanding. We will definitely return on our next trip to New York
We all enjoyed our evening and the staff was so nice.
Thanks so much!!
One of my all time favorite places to dine all over the world. I always take time to go to dB Bistro moderne every time I visit New York. The intimacy of the space, friendly staff and outstanding cuisine are a welcome relief from the hustle bustle of New York
Excellent in every respect
The food is sublime here. Nice, quiet atmosphere where you can hear your companion speaking. The dining room is warm and elegant but not too much.
Excellent service and food quality. A little noisy , but what do you expect on Saturday night?
I would recommend this establishment.
This is a favorite pre-theatre restaurant. The food is delicious and authentically French bistro. Our recent visit was particularly nice, as we had a complicated seating problem which was very graciously resolved for us.
The food and service were excellent. When we got there at 6:30 it was very crowded and noisy. We had asked for a quiet table and they accommodated us. We have to wait ten minutes but it was worth it to have a place where we could have a good conversation. The place is very pretty and it apparently was a pre-theatre crowd because it was very quiet by the time we left.
Excellent service and extensive wine selection. Even though quite busy you could hold pleasant conversations.
Lovely Thanksgiving pre-fix dinner, but do not expect to be treated with respect by the staff.
The end of our dining experience was accompanied by intimidating stares from the waitstaff as an obvious hint to finish the last of our wine quickly. The manager of the evening, Brittany, was very contentious and rude, and we were rushed out of what started as a pleasant dining experience. Overall decent food, but not worth the expenditure for such horrible customer service.
The food was delicious, the menu well-curated, and the atmosphere was very nice.
Food was outstanding and ambience excellent. Wait staff could have been a bit warmer. Rest oom facilities leave something to be desired.
It was great can’t wait to come back. The food and service were excellent
Delicious Thanksgiving pre-fixe menu, and ambiance - thank you!
My girlfriend and I have been to db Bistro Moderne for Thanksgiving. The location is really nice, the service excellent and the food really delicious. 5 stars :)
Best meal we’ve had in NYC on this trip! Unique tastes and great service.
This was our first time dining here and we would definitely return on our next trip to NYC. My husband had the Dover Sole and raved about it, while I had the Steak Frites, also delicious. We were pleased with our server Gustavo and look forward to returning.
We were a party of five. We were seated at a corner table which I had requested. The quality, flavor and presentation of the food was superb. Service was very good. The $60 three course menu is an excellent value. I started with the Hamachi crudo and followed with the steak frites. My grand daughter had the Hamachi crudo then Dover sole. We all shared a presentation of five desserts.
I had a fantastic meal started off with cheese and pate and then steak frites.
Nice efficient, French like bistro, we enjoyed the steak with great French fries and the Halibut. Service is rapid. Food is great. On the expensive side especially the drinks
The service staff was wonderful. The hosts could care less. As we were leaving they did not both to interrupt their commuting discussion to get our coats and simply point to another colleague when we asked. Terribly inconsistent with the rest of the experience.
The food ,atmosphere and service were very good but the prices are high.
I was expecting way more from a DB restaurant. The service was as expected - excellent, the food was good, and they did what every they could to accommodate my wife's restrictions, but the ambiance was off, as well as, the presentation of the plates. The building is showing wear and the lighting was off. This was lunch, so not sure how it is at night.
Best burger in the World - short rib, foie gras and black truffle! Going through my photos I realise that, in the many times I’ve been there, I’ve had the burger about 90% of the time.
Food was delicious and beautifully presented.
Price fix lunch a little on the high side but multiple choices.
Repeated requests for sliced lemon for water were acknowledged but totally ignored.
Service and food quality is always outstanding. Noise level at lunch is high.
Wonderful food, service and ambiance! I dine here at least once every time I visit NYC and am never disappointed!
