We were both disappointed in appetizer & entree. Everything seemed to be greasy & each entree had more gristle than it should have. Will give it another chance, hope this was just an off night.

Ambiance and decor is well above any venue on Oak st. Limited menu for the price point which is rather high compared to many others in the Oak area. Service was excellent and well made but expensive cocktails.

Every. Single. Thing. was wonderful! The 4 of us shared the fried corn bread and the French fries, then each had an appetizer, all of which were delicious. The entrees were generous, cooked perfectly and absolutely great. Also the 2nd round of French fries (because they were just that great!). Shared the banana dessert. Cocktails were all wonderful; lots of draft beer; excellent service - this place is a winner!

This was my first time to DTB. I had been reading reviews and decided to try it for myself. The last review I read wasn’t very complimentary, so I was second guessing my decision. But we really did enjoy it. We were there in time for happy hour so half priced cocktails and wine!
The food is not what you find in so many other area restaurants- a different take. We enjoyed the fried cornbread and the oyster small plates, both very good. Entrees were solid - rice bowl, gnocchi, short ribs and pasta. All was very good.

We were in New Orleans visiting our daughter at Tulane. We wanted a place for Sunday brunch that had a varied menu, took reservations and is close to campus. DTB offered all three. We had a wonderful meal and will be back.

Went for brunch. Everything was very nice except the prices. I don't generally complain about prices. I'm more than willing to pay a good amount for an excellent dining experience. But thirteen bucks for a relatively small dish of mac & cheese?!? Ten bucks for an unresonably small Bloody Mary? Really?? I was prepared to order from the special Restaurant Week menu (3 courses for $39) but upon studying the menu, I figured that the three courses I would order would only be $36 if I order them from the regular menu. That kinda defeats the whole purpose of "Restaurant Week, now doesn't it? To sum up, the food was good, the service was good, and the place was very comfortable. I'll go back sometime for dinner and see if I get a better bang for my buck.

The squid ink pasta and chocolate dessert were the best. The tuna crudo was a bit skimpy on the tuna and the presentation was not appetizing. The broiled oysters were not broiled but fried - something to watch out for in New Orleans generally. The service was outstanding and for that we'd go back.

We did the 3 course Coolinary menu, but can't wait to go back. Everything was superb. I tried the "Corpse Reviver" cocktail. What a kick, but so good. Not sweet like I was expecting. Also, the chef accommodated us on changes to our entrees, which he did NOT have to do since it was a set menu. My husband had the Waygu Rib (so, so tender), I had the Rice bowl with shrimp & crab (YUM). We tried both desserts (Chocolate Brownie and Peaches & Cream Cheesecake). The food was VERY rich, but oh so worth it. Just had to walk a little extra the next day. AND to top it all off, we had the BEST waiter in the place. I can't remember his name cause I have slept since then, but he was a DELIGHT! We will definitely go back.

Was nothing like I expected. The food was underwhelming. The Mac and cheese was standard. The breakfast sampler was nice. Can’t mess up grits and bacon. The biscuit left much to be desired. But those banana beignets with chocolate sauce were awful. The chocolate sauce was more of a pudding and the beignet was more a ball of banana bread. I was embarrassed to bring my out of town friend here for a taste of Cajun/bayou food.

I was excited to go to DTB because I had heard so much about the restaurant and the innovative menu. We were seated promptly and our server was very accommodating. We chose the preset menu that they had at the time, but were not really satisfied with the choices. At the time, on the menu they looked really good, but didn't hold up to the restaurants reputation. The duck wings were hard and skimpy and messy. Thanks to our waiter for bringing us wet, warm napkins and fresh napkins for the table. The main course choices were Braised Short Rib over bland mashed potatoes, which was good but nothing special and a rice bowl that was basically soft, mushy jambalaya. Our server was nice, but some things were not done correctly, we were rushed through our dinner, and this was strange, because drinks and refills didn't come out together or right away, but we got the feeling they wanted the table vacated for the next reservation. We were at the restaurant less than an hour, which is fast for drinks and 3 courses. We wont go back...once and done.

We chose the restaurant because of the enticing menu items. There were great flavor combinations so we were eager to try it. Unfortunately it didn't translate. I ordered the brisket burger which was overcooked. There were twp burgers so the portion was significant but they were two small overcooked burgers. Also too much lettuce making the burger wobbly and the bun was soggy and falling apart. I also ordered the hocks in cornbread. That was tasteless. My friend ordered the gumbo (LA 1) which was excellent. He also ordered something on grilled asparagus. The asparagus wasn't grilled and it was chopped up into little pieces and hardly recognizable. The decor was fabulous I really hope they can get it together.
