dbar is a full service restaurant that seamlessly transforms into a nightclub and lounge as the night goes on. Formally an old school Irish pub filled with mahogany charm, dbar has been renovated into a hip chic hot spot. With warm glowing candles & long leather banquettes, dbar offers a casual and comfortable atmosphere that attracts clientele from Dorchester and surrounding areas. The unique and classy menu inspired by Executive Chef Christopher Coombs changes with the seasons and features the finest and freshest available ingredients throughout the New England area. Most of the menu takes a French twist, but also contains an assortment of comfort foods (such as our famous Veal & Pancetta Bolognaise) and old favorites (like our simple yet delicious Giannone Chicken Under a Brick.)

    It doesn’t turn into a club-like atmosphere every night. This was not apparent on the website or anywhere online and we went expecting that it would. The food was fantastic, though, and we still had a decent time.

    We’ve been dining at Dbar for years. Always consistently good. Just disappointed this time. Had the cod but the Gigante Bean Cassoulet it was placed on was very very salty. Wanted to point it out to our server but didn’t want to embarrass my partner.

    Love dbar, and love the outdoor seating. But last night the service was incredibly slow, and we watched tables that arrived well after us get their food well before we got ours. My wife's chicken was warm, not hot, which suggested that it had been sitting for a while before it was served. (My dish wouldn't have been hot to begin with.) We ended up being there over 2½ hours, and that's with no dessert!

    The outdoor dining at dbar is very well built out and a nice oasis from the city. The spring/summer updated menu has some great dishes - the tuna was fantastic
