I have been there several times before and the food and service have always been top notch so was very excited to introduce friends. We arrived and got a great table but there server was not around very often and sat with dirty plates most of the evening. Was very disappointed

Two minor complaints. Too many high top tables. Low tables are a more comfortable seating position. I also cook and eat lamb burgers and am very familiar with there tastes and flavor. I'm sorry but your lamb burger is too strongly spiced. Otherwise a nice experience with wonderful cocktails and service.

Thanks for listening.

We enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back!! It is a great pre/post show spot for drinks/quick bite! I'm also intrigued by the brunch menu and plan to check it out soon :)

It is good for Times Square area. Was in a crunch and needed something. The bar is better than the food. It was good but not somewhere I would go back to per se.

The food and presentation was amazing. There was live music for the Saturday brunch but we were seated so far in the very back of the restaurant you wouldn't hear the music. There were also some bigger parties in the back section so kind of loud. The service was fine, food came out fairly quickly and was hot and fresh. The whole place was hopping with a great vibe so even though we couldn't appreciate the music, it was a great spot for brunch. Would totally recommend to others and would go back again.

This is an awesome spot, the cocktails were very creative, staff super friendly, great atmosphere. Have to try the Eggplant chips, I know sounds weird but it works, with honey.
It was Superbowl Sunday so a bit slow since its not a sport bar, but we had a great time.

We arrived early for our reservation and told them we could wait at the bar - we had requested a standard table. They put us at a high top, next to a serving station. We asked to move and said we could wait...they found a table for us, but everyone was so rude. The server hardly said anything to us. We ordered 3 tapas and expected they would come out staggered but everything came out at once...food was mediocre. The eggrolls were charred. Had high expectation given the reviews, but if fell flat.

The ambiance is awesome and the staff are friendly and attentive, but for all the reviews, I expected the food to be better than what it was. I had chicken and waffles for brunch and not only was the "plate" it was served on impossible to cut on without losing pieces to the edgeless surface, but the biscuit gravy poured on top -- while delicious -- made the chicken a little soggy. The side order of tots was nice, though the tots fell apart every time I tried to stab one with my fork. I would definitely go back though, and hope to do so in the future, to try their regular menu.

Loved, loved, loved our experience for brunch on a Saturday at 11am. Followed recommendations posted about the excellent brunch and they did not lead us astray. Excellent food/drinks, exceptionally clean and had wonderful ambiance and live music. Make the reservation. Well worth your time.

We had a Group of 7 and I made a reservation , we were seated right away and service was amazing. Food was delicious and came out pretty fast as well. Bottomless Dutch punch and mimosas were amazing as well!

I had a reservation for 4pp but at the last minute, a friend from out of town advised me that she was in the city with some friends. I let the hostess know as soon as I arrived and even though the place had a party going on the moment my friends came they accommodated my larger party. They were great and didn't miss a beat. The food at Dutch never disappoints and I want to thank everyone who made it a special night for all my friends visiting from out of state.

Sat for 10 minutes and no server. Couple next to us came in after us and got up to ask for server. Server came. Still did not come to us. I got up and requested service. Placed our order. Huge gap between apps and main! They were overwhelmed I guess. Everyone was nice, but got nervous we would not make our appointment. Husband’s steak sandwich ordered medium rare, came super rare. Chicken sandwich just ok. Ambience great and cocktails were delicious. Might go again just for cocktails and apps at the huge bar.

What a nice surprise to walk in and hear a live band playing on a Saturday afternoon! After enjoying dinner at Dutch Fred’s for the first time the weekend before, my husband and I came back from Long Island on a snowy day to have brunch before another show. Both of our meals were delicious (as were our dinners the time before) and the bottomless Dutch’s Punch warmed us up! The waitress was very nice, food was hot and arrived quickly and the place has a very relaxing and comfortable feel. Can’t wait to come back!

We had a very nice lunch before our afternoon show. The establishment was clean & tidy. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and when I asked about a food allergy that I have, she confirmed with the kitchen about the ingredients. We shared some small plates and enjoyed everything. Tables next to us had salads and they looked delicious as well. I would definitely recommend to anyone for a delicious meal!

Our friend with celiac LOVED the gluten free chicken tenders. My sister thought her burger was fine. I really enjoyed my steak sandwich. Our server was pleasant and attentive. The vibe was great, and the bathrooms were very clean. I was only disappointed with my drink. I ordered a Four Horsemen. It was sooo good, and I was very happy! Until 3 sips in when I realized there was an ice ball the diameter of the cup taking up most of where my $15 drink should have been. A few sips later it was gone. I’ve never had that experience with a craft cocktail before, not in NYC or anywhere else for that matter. After looking at their website I noticed that these are features in the photos, but at the time I was surprised and disappointed.

Atmosphere was great! Music slight higher than I would have hoped, not saying it was loud but could have been lower. Food was amazing! Drink selection was fun and playful. Would recommend to everyone!
