I love the burger Frenchie, it's so juicy and very well prepared. The ambiance is modern and it's really a cool place to be.

Outstanding meal!
We went for restaurant week and enjoyed an amazing meal.
The steak tartare was heavenly and the duck breast entrée was absolute perfection!
Our server Ariel was friendly and efficient.
Definitely one of the best meals to be had in NYC.

We had a wonderful visit to DBGB's. It was my 2nd visit and I wanted to make this out last stop after our vacation to NYC. We had the burgers, which were wonderful. Jose was our waiter and he was friendly, personable and a wonderful host. I am very sorry to hear that DBGB will be closing this Friday and I hope that the staff are well taken care of.

The food took forever and the waiter was incredibly rude and unpleasant. When my friend asked him which sausage he recommended, he responded by saying, "they're all different." He never greeted us or gave us an update on our food. Just plain nasty. Calamari was burnt, mussels were mediocre, and the cake tasted like chemicals. I will most certainly not be dining at this restaurant again.

Nothing special...

The salad we ordered came with a plastic packaging tie in the plate, which meant they didn't check or clean the vegetable well enough. Mentioned this issue to the waiter, and just received a verbal apology from the manager. Meanwhile, the waiter didn't ask how to cook our steak and lamb chop, so they were both served as rare. Since they were too rare and hard to cut and chew, we couldn't even finish half of the plates. Overall, it was a disappointed Restaurant Week experience…

Some friends were in town recently &we were looking for a nicer local restaurant – DBGB seemed to be perfect. Each of us went with the prix fixe & 3 (out of 5) ordered dessert – the lava cake.

After a long time, I noticed the server stuck her head around the corner to see if we’d been served the first course; we hadn’t. Nor had bread or butter been served. She stopped by again & said she could see our 1st course getting ready to be served. They were, we ate, they were cleared.

The time between the 1st & main courses was too long, but not horrible. But we didn’t see our server again; she never checked on us. She went to other tables and two other servers brought our food/cleared our table. It was annoying to see others receiving normal service while we were ignored. The entire experience dragged – we were seated at about 7:20pm and it was now almost 9pm.

We continued to wait after the main course was cleared to see the dessert menu and we were told they were out of the lava cake. It was barely 9pm on a Saturday night, the place was ~60% full and they were out of most popular desserts?! Didn’t make sense. The original orders had been set aside; another of our group who had wanted to order it had to go with something else.

The server who took our dessert orders noticed we were annoyed and had manager come over. We waited 5 more minutes, during which, the original server stopped by. We said we’d asked for the manager since we hadn’t seen her through the meal. Nothing changed – she continued to walk by and not look our way.

The manager came over, we explained the situation and he said he would put our desserts first. Or not, since we didn’t get dessert for another 20 min. He offered to buy drinks; we declined - our goal wasn't to profit from our displeasure. We just expected competent service at a restaurant of DBGB's reputation.

All in all, very disappointing . I expected more & was embarrassed to have been the one to suggest DBGB.

Delicious. Great service. $1 oysters are an absolute bargain and very good quality. Steak tartare was creative and as good as I've ever had, burger was also delicious. This restaurant mixes the eclectic with the basic extremely well. Highly recommend.

It was a celebration of my birthday. Loved hanging at the bar first. Great cocktails and bartenders. Food was great and I loved the choices of hearty to light. Just a fun place to hang out with friends where food is good without pretense.

First experience with DB establishment, have heard great things, and it lived up to its name. The Bowery brunch deal is a fantastic value and every single course was delicious!

Excellent food; my steak fillet had the perfect cook on it. Can get a little pricey, but overall good experience. Waited a little bit too long to pay the note.

Everything was excellent including the surprising green bean salad with apricots and hazelnuts. Lamb chops delicious. The seafood plateau was wonderfully fresh!
