The Dutch maintains its reputation. The food is always outstanding and so is the service and the drinks.

This is my fourth experience at Dutch over several years. The first three were dinner’s. I was very happy with them. This time I invited a friend to lunch. Menu was very limited. Fried chicken was all batter no chicken and so hard. Kale salad was nothing special. Carrot cake was soggy, the lime sherbet was good. There was a decent Prosecco. No espresso or coffees other than regular. We were two women of over 60, so they would not sit us at table of 4 though it never filled. We ate outside where two young men spoke loudly to distraction at the next table. The booths are tiny, we’re not overweight, even so we didn’t quite fit. The tables were tiny. We sat there because the heat lamp at a quieter table was not working. The woman server was attentive and pleasant. My friend , an architect had just finished consulting near by, it was her birthday and I suggested we meet there. I wish I had chosen better. Or gone at night where it’s roomier and menu is better. We were expecting soft shell crabs which I had read was on the menu.I guess I was mistaken.

It's a fun place with a lot of energy and the service is better than the food. Meat was overcooked, food not exactly hot, etc.

Perfect for neighborhood bistro.

Not worth a detour.

The waiter was rude and we felt rushed. If you want to be treated like you’re bothering the staff and spending too much, go for it.

Seated right away in a safe outdoor table. Great service. The food was delicious. We started with the eggplant dip and savory crackers and then we both had the handmade pappardelle with duck bolognese. I would have loved a piece of Italian bread to sop up the remaining bolognese. The server did offer a biscuit but I passed. Nice wine by the glass.

A West Village mainstay, The Dutch just keeps on doing right, even in COVID times. Service is friendly and attentive. Food is on point. The outdoor seating is convivial and great for people watching. One of the city's great spots...

Food was amazing, pancakes and the french onion omelette. Service severely lacking. She did not engage with us at all. She never checked on us while we had our food until the end when we were done with our plates. It was not busy. A bit of a let down as I come here often. I have many happy memories here though so I'm hoping it was just a fluke and I will be back.

The 25 dollar hamburger was nothing better than a shake shake burger. I have given the “Dutch” way too much money and too many chances. The staff was attentive and prompt.

We had brunch at the Dutch last weekend. Everything was fine-ish, nothing special, but the service felt particularly cold and entitled. Given the moment in time, we were really excited for our first brunch out with friends in over a year. Rather than welcoming us back with similar excitement (we've eaten there many times over the years), the entire experience had a "you're lucky to be here" energy.

Years ago, when The Dutch was The Cub Room, I went with friends without a reservation and when we asked how long the wait was the host replied "It's Soho and it's brunch. What do expect?". Not much has changed.

It was a nice experience with the only exception that we sat outside so that we could be away from other patrons but the tables were very close together, some of them divided by a plastic enclosure but not enough to keep distance during Covid. The food was good and service very good. Looking forward to returning once the pandemic is under control.
