The Brussel Sprout app was delish. The oyster dip was bleh. Overall, the food was good and the service was great. Seems like a wannabe restaurant experimenting with progressive recipes but something is missing.

We went for their Mardi Gras dessert special - the king cake souffle, and it didn't disappoint. BUT the best dish of the night was the pork belly & Brussels. Wow... just wow. Love this place.

Food was a bit of disappointment. The fish tacos were a little bit fishy but they took them off the bill and that was appreciated. The prairie waffles were the best of 3 dishes.

Great bartenders. They tailored their specialty cocktail for me— it’s git vodka and pepper jelly. Delicious ! Crabmeat and avocado salad with jalapeño honey dressing is wonderful. Great atmosphere and staff.

Everything we ordered at DTB was outstanding in flavor and inventiveness from the cocktails to the entrees, but the "cornbread starter" was so "above and beyond' that we ordered a second before we finished the first! We will definitely be back!!!

Our dinner party consisted of five of us, and we all are open to sharing our food, so that made the experience that much better! We were quickly seated and greeted by our waiter. We received a menu and were able to order drinks fairly quickly. Our waiter was very informative regarding some of the specialty cocktails. I ordered the old fashion and was very pleased. As far as appetizers go we had the beet salad, oysters augratin, salad with avocado, tomato, and crabmeat, and the brussel sprouts with pork belly. All were good but the brussel sprouts were the best, followed by the beet salad. Entrees included the duck confit, DTB's version of jambalaya with mirliton slaw , scallops, and short ribs. The short ribs were the best entree, and the duck was a bit disappointing. The other two entrees were very good. For desert we got the king cake soufflé (OMG it was as good as advertised!), a banana ice cream and a chocolate desert that apparently was good but I was too busy with the king cake soufflé to taste anything else. All in all it was excellent, very good waiter, timed the dinner courses well, and the food was excellent. If you go, save room for the king cake soufflé, its worth it!

I was eager to try to vodka with pepper jelly. Unfortunately, it also had crushed habanero peppers which made it too spicy for this spice/loving girl.
The avocado and crabmeat salad was outstanding— one of the best salads I’ve ever had.
The mushroom boudin balls were so salty that I couldn’t eat them. Saltiness is my #1 complaint about restaurants. It usually occurs because the chef(s) smokes.
Bar stools are very comfortable and the ambience is great.
Every single (male) server has facial hair ! Not a plus for me

Food was very good.... once we got it. Enthusiastic personality of waiter was followed by 30 minutes of waiting for drinks ordered, during which the waiter came by once ONLY when we flagged him down, telling us drinks were coming “in just a sec”, after which we waited 10 more minutes. First food dishes didn’t arrive until 45 minutes after we ordered them. It took over 2.5 hours to be served and consume 5 dishes (3 apps, 2 entrees) by 3 people. Fortunately we weren’t in a particular rush, but this was just ridiculous. Also we were seated next to a large table (bachelorette party of 16+ women) who were extremely loud, we could barely hear ourselves talk. If you’re going to host that size and that type of party, you need to have a private room or at LEAST separate them from the rest of the patrons. Have been to DTB before and was pleased with food and service, but this time it was an aggravating experience.

DTB is apart from the rest of the food in this city. The food is delightfully surprising, rich in flavor and truly inspired. One can tell that Chef John Hill and his team care about what they do and how they do it. This is definitely a place to eat and outshines nearly every single restaurant in the quarter and the CBD. If you care to experience food prepared differently and done exceptionally well, this is the place.

We came here for NYE where they had a set menu for $85 a person. The food was great, but the service was disappointing for the cost of the experience. All the staff was pleasant and polite. However, we were seated 30min past our reservation time (though were compensated with drinks). We waited about 30 min between each course. Multiple tables seated after us were served and left before we were even given dessert. We had to ask for our check to be served with our dressert which was only given for half the table at a time. In total it took over 2 hours for a table of 4

Food was delicious. We arrived early and enjoyed a drink in the bar for happy hour. Very attentive service. Forgot that I updated my profile to gluten free. Our waiter, Trey, brought me a gluten free menu without me even asking which was impressive. Short ribs were delicious. Husband enjoyed the duck.
