Service was effective and pleasant, the food was well prepared, I had the Iberian pork and it was amazing. The architecture is rustic elegant, right down my alley.

Great restaurant and bar but quite expensive. Would still recommend though, especially if you can get a booth in the back room.

It was an overall good experience. FANTASTIC FOOD! However, at one point the bar got so crowded it started feeding over into our table and we kept getting bumped by someone passing by our people standing almost on top of our table. I would try to mediate how many people are standing at the bar so it doesn’t interfere with guests who are dining.

Came for my 21st Birthday. Food was incredible. Service was incredible! The little Polaroid photo I was given to commemorate the day was a nice touch as well! Highly recommend!

My wife and I decided to celebrate Valentine's Day a few days late. We planned on going to the Dutch knowing what a fantastic place it is. Our usual meal here is brunch, but wanted to do dinner this time. Having had dinner here before we asked for seating in the back room. We like the front room early in the day because of the big windows, but dinner in the back room is always more romantic...especially because we asked to sit by the fireplace....our favorite spot. Our waiter Guy was fabulous! He was very attentive, funny and knew exactly how to deal with our menu request. From the wine, to the salads, to dinner and dessert...all of his suggestions were right on the mark. Great night....great dinner....great service....great restaurant. The Dutch is one of the best.

This restaurant is new to me a lifelong New Yorker. I went there with my daughter and her fiancé after a Sunday afternoon movie at the film forum which is two blocks away.. The menu is original with a slightly New Orleansish tint, Which was oddly delicious given the name of the place. I am not able to eat garlic and the restaurant was very accommodating fixing things without garlic for me. I am not able to drink most California wines, which is most of their list, So I had a delicious single malt scotch made —of all places— in Texas!
The restaurant is a tad pricey compared to uptown classic haute cuisine restaurants, but We enjoyed our meals and felt it was well worth it.

While the fish was delicious, the fried chicken was disappointing, especially as their "signature dish." THE smallest pieces...not worth the $40.00.

Apple pie dessert was fantastic and service was great.

We have enjoyed dinner her before. This was our first brunch at The Dutch and we loved it. Very creative interpretations of classics, plus more. Wide range of prices and plate sizes. Will definitely recommend and will be back again for brunch and dinner.

Excellent food and wine list. Attentive service, on a crowded Sat night. Only down sides were noise level and how dim the light is to read the menu.

This was not my first time at The Dutch, but I don’t remember the food being so bad. All three dishes we have ordered were ovecooked, dry and tesless. It was completely uneatable! What happened? The service was good and vibe was awesome as always. Please guys, fix whatever is happening in the kitchen.

It was very noisy. Food was good, so was the service- but the environment was noisy and crowded . There was also cold air blowing over the table - not ideal in a NYC winter.

We had the burger (sublime) and lobster roll (chock-full of lobster topped with house-picked cucumbers and tobiko - one of the best rolls I’ve ever had). The bartender knows what he was doing, and to round things out was our terrific server. Also of note: the space, which could not have been more warm and inviting on a chilly February day. Prices were a tad high, but not off-putting; we will definitely be back.

We went for lunch on a snowy day. It wasn't crowded at noon, I think because of the snow. We had a reservation for a table but chose to sit at the bar. The bartender was super friendly and provided good service but was not intrusive. We ordered a fish crud to share and it was good. My sister ordered the sea bass which was the best thing we had. I got crab legs and they were fine but nothing special. This is a great neighborhood spot, cozy and welcoming. I think if we have ventured. ore into their raw bar items we would have been extra happy.

We went during brunch and ordered the vanilla chia yogurt and the bagel with smoked salmon and eggs. Very great quality, both meals were delicious and the eggs were scrambled to a soft perfection. The yogurt was expensive for the amount given, but very tasty

the ambience at The Dutch is familiar, cozy and a little like a private club. The staff was arm and welcoming and attentive. the food selection was varied however the dishes themselves, that we tasted, were uninspired. In general the cost of the meal was not merited by the flavors that we experienced. It was pleasant but not likely to merit another visit especially considering the total $$

A little over a week ago I finally had the privilege to enjoy lunch at the Dutch for NYC restaurant week. I ran behind schedule and barely made it to lunch before the kitchen closed for dinner. The staff was very accommodating and ensured I was well taken care of. Service overall was great. I took advantage of the deal $26 for two courses which was a great bargain for the amount of food I got. I had the hot tin roof cocktail which was good, refreshing and somewhat medicinal. For the appetizer I went with the shrimp cocktail, the shrimps were huge and the right amount of the crab louie made this deceptively small dish very filling. The entree was the highlight for me, the roasted chicken kale caesar salad with lots and lots of cheese was huge that it could feed two people. This salad was so good, the chicken was tender and skin was so crispy while the kale and cheese combination hit the spot. I was only able to eat half of it. I highly recommend this restaurant for lunch for restaurant week, it's worth it.

We didn’t enjoy our lunch at The Dutch. There are no vegetarian option, waiter was erratic, brought our order bad twice, we didn’t eat the meat which was not tasting good and no questions asked when removing the full plates from the table.
