We had a great dinner with friends. There were no leftovers so that should say it all. I had the Lobster Gnocchi was perfect. I would definitely order it again. The others at the table gave thumbs up to their entrees, shrimp and grits, the blackened puppy drum and the catfish. We can’t wait to return.

We were there for New Year's Eve, wanting a casual experience, not dressy. DBT was perfect, and the food was absolutely delicious.

Everything was delicious as usual. We went for NYE and was not aware it was a pre-set menu ahead of time. All 4 courses were very tasty but being $80 per person was more than we were expecting from a place with very reasonable prices on the normal menu. Would have preferred $60 per person with the option of dessert or the 2nd appetizer.

Absolutely love DTB! Best service ever and they are so nice & accommodating. My fish was overcooked and the server offered to fire a new one even after I ate half of it. She brought a new hot fish with all the sides & even packed it to go for me. Unbelievable, my favorite uptown place. Everything is delicious!!!

Reserved a table and got seated in the back corner next to a wall with damage. As someone who eats at DTB often, it was disappointing. Food was great as always, but sitting people who have gone out of their way to make a reservation in a sub par spot is unacceptable.

Consistently great. Food is delicious and love the innovative menu. Service is casual yet professional and restaurant is well staffed. One change I'd like to see (or hear) is that they change the music to match the ambiance of the decor and food. Music is too "pop" and can be distracting - have experienced this on several occasions. Would like local music or jazz or instrumental like brass or zydeco. Small way to improve an overall great experience. Will be coming back, and keep this in mind for large parties as well as intimate dinners for two.

Great food with a real cajun/bayou flare. Excellent drinks from the bar. Portions are a little small, so be prepared to order more than you think you would.

Very nice upbeat ambiance. Friendly, and efficient service.

The fried corn bread was tasteless, disappointing and expensive at $12. The gumbo was hearty and average.

The blackened drum at $28 was small and dry with three slices of sweet potato and a sweet potato paste. Very disappointing. I obviously was willing to pay $28 for my lunch entree. However, to charge that much the meal is supposed to be worth the price. It fell far short of value in regards to taste, presentation and frankly volume.

The fried chicken sandwich was delicious. Here again at $16.00 it’s overpriced. It’s not much different in taste then the Popeyes chicken sandwich at $4.00.

There are too many places in the area to get a consistently better meal at a lower price.

You can’t charge premium prices with average to below average food. The price has to match the experience..D.T.B. does not achieve this.

Great find on oak Street. Really enjoyed the option available of multiple selections of small plates allowing to sample several different items. At the same time knowing there was a large plate option available for other members of our party was great to have.
Normally don't have deserts but the oatmeal sandwiches were outstanding.

We had 10am reservations. We got there on time, were promptly seated. kiera was a very attentive and communicative . We ordered beignets which were a little different as they had a vanilla crepe filling but they were yummy. My husband had the shrimp and grits and I had the Oak St breakfast. Grits, eggs, bacon and a biscuit with some amazing gravy. I couldn’t eat everything so I got some of it to go. Bacon was a little over cooked. Shrimp and grits were claimed to be the best ever. We had a great meal and service was amazing. I hope people will give this place a try.

Excellent service and food! We had the blackened redfish, beef short ribs, and the airline chicken with red bean risotto. I don’t know which I would recommend most because they were all ridiculously good! Space is very nice, a bit loud but not awful. Would definitely recommend!

Great brunch on a Saturday. They don’t open until 10, and we had a 10 am reservation for 7. The place remained relatively empty for the 90 minutes or so we were there. Perfect for us...a group of girlfriends from all over the country who just wanted to catch up, so the fact that it was relatively empty allowed us to talk to each other as a group. The food was tasty as well.
