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!

The best cocktail lounge in the Theater District. With a cool downtown vibe, DF's serves awesomely creative mixed drinks and delicious food.

My only “complaint” was that we were going to be late for our reservation- I called the restaurant twice to let them know. Got a voicemail each time. I quickly made a modification to our reservation when we knew we were going to be late - and We fortunately were still able to be seated when we arrived. Food was good - drinks were pricey - but it’s NYC. We had a good time overall.

Hadn’t been back in over a year and DF’s did not disappoint. Kinky Boots for the Mrs. and a Sixth Sense for me. Great - well crafted cocktails. Followed this up up with the Oregon Pinot Noir .... fair priced and better than fair quality.... whoever is responsible - nicely done! Eggplant chips, lamb sliders, and the seared sesame tuna. Thursday night - we were there early /pre show and if you didn’t have a rez waits were 1/2 hour +..place was crowded which increased the decibel level but - hey - I always say if it’s that popular odds are decent the place is pretty good. Totally (still) recommend!

Great brunch menu! Avocado mash was plentiful and great. The pancake served in a cast iron skillet looked and smelled delicious, the two people who ordered it devoured it. The breakfast tacos and the eggs Benedict were also good. There was live music , which was a great addition.
