The Dutch Ratings and Reviews
This was my first time back at the Dutch in many years, and the restaurant is certainly no longer hot. This can be a plus, as reservations are now easy, and there are empty tables, although not too many. The dishes also seem less ambitious, with the mains limited to fish, chicken and beef, with one lamb dish, no daily specials. There used to be more variety and effort. The oysters are good, but if you are looking for something cooked as an appetizer, the selection is limited. I did like the octopus tostada, which was the only cooked appetizer on the menu that seemed appealing. Main dishes fall in the area of comfort food, their signature dishes being fried chicken and hangar steak. I had the hangar steak, which I liked, with kimchee rice that was also very good, but my wife had the pan roasted chicken which she didn't like at all. I tasted a friend's fried chicken, which I found dry and overcooked. I didn't at all like the apple pie, and that is an understatement. The cocktails were quite good. Wines by the glass were dull.
Truly a gem. Creative, delicious food that never over-reaches to become precious. A dozen little things that make you feel special. Pitch-perfect service. Try to get a table in the back dining room by the open kitchen, and settle into an experience that is cozy and sophisticated all at once. It doesn't get better than The Dutch.
Service is key. Our waiter was worried about his hair versus his tables. Ordered oysters as a starter .... waiter forgot that and our entrees came out. Food quality was adequate , nothing remarkable. Would not recommend for dining. Bar scene was active and maybe this is a better spot for a drink.
My husband and I dined here a few months ago to celebrate my birthday and it was absolutely perfect. Our server was attentive, personable and knowledge about the menu. Our food was outstanding, each dish better than the last.
Based on that experience, we recommended it to many of our friends and chose to come again when we had some out of town guests visiting from Atlanta. Much to our disappointment, our server couldn't have been less interested in our table. It seemed we were an inconvenience to his evening and he barely stood at the table long enough to take our order. Very disappointing as we had been rather excited to come back. I'm not a needy customer, but when I'm paying $40 entree prices I expect much more than what we received. I hope they can do better in the future, but I doubt I will be back to find out.
Honestly...I was a little disappointed. We went for brunch for a friends birthday and the meal was fine. No love in the food, for sure. Burger was lukewarm and my fries were itty bitty bits and pieces. It just used to be so much better.
The Dutch is a great restaurant and bar that has a terrific ambiance, service that is second to done. I liked the fact that The Dutch serves local and American based wines and spirits; this is different than other restaurants and is greatly appreciated. I will definitely return!
