I've been here a dozen times and always sit at the bar. The food is exceptionally well done and always interesting, the service at the bar is attentive and well-informed. Welcome addition to an area where truly professional service is sadly hard to find.

I definitely give good grades for this place and I would return, however, the prices for the brauts/weiners/links are simply too high for what you get. $13-$15 for a very tasty braut. Should be no more than $9 each and that would still be a bit high, but appropriate for the space. Very good craft beer selection and the service was very good. We sat in the bar area.

Had delicious escargot, sausages, and a Frenchie burger - all delicious and served by an energetic and friendly staff.

I have been to DBGB five times since they opened. They have definitely stepped up their game since they opened. The beer list is phenomenal, the menu is awesome and the service was great. I love that they have cooper pans from famous chefs hanging in the dinning room. I think their burger is one of the best in the city, I had the piggie. Something about the burger blend itself was so tasty. I asked the server where they get their meat from and they said the grind it themselves with a secrete blend. There is way too much emphasis on what purveyor the restaurant is using these days, it's nice to know that some chefs still want to do things the old school way.

we went to dbgb strictly in search of "the perfect burger". my friend ordered their infamous piggie bigger. the pork was delicious tender and very tasty. i got the yankee burger and it was honestly quite bland, but with ketchup it was great. the fries that came with it were the best part. the service was also up to par at first my burger seemed to a bit too bare so i asked for them to cook it, and they gave me a brand new burger with extra fries. (they could have been nice because the 'daily news' was doing the review on them that same time). regardless the service was fantastic! i would love to go back and try other entrees on the menu.

Our lovely waitress looked like Concha Buika (african Spanish singer), that got a thumbs up. My bourbon and coke came with no bourbon and needed to be sent back, that got a thumbs down. The tuscan sausage was on par with a McDonalds breakfast. The "Yankee" burger was served with that really light green cabbage lettuce you would see at the corner Deli. The burger was fine, but not for $16 ($14+$2 for cheese). The highlight of the meal were the fries--those skinny crispy ones that I LOVE. The crowd consisted of mostly upper west side types that came downtown on a second date (at least i didnt say upper e side).

GB = Good Burger. The burger is truly tasty, as are the fries. Great job! L = Loud. We all know NY restaurants can be lively, but this one needs some electronic sound dampening badly! B = Bad bartenders. One bartender was so arrogant he almost spoiled our entire evening. He persisted to have returned my credit card, not wanting to look into the tab stack. Of course you start fearing he gave it to someone else...

I had guests visiting from Europe,.and I had the bad idea to take them to this restaurant! The food was good,but unfortunately it was spoiled by the waiter's attitude. He was a total jerk,really rude,condescending,.and he did not even had the patience to explain the menu to some of my guests that were not so fluent in English. A restaurant like that should set higher standards when it comes to hire the staff. Never again,..

First negative: not seating you until your whole party has arrived, even though you have a reservation. Second negative: not seating you until 9:35 when your reservation was for 8:45 - the host staff was rude and unprofessional, sometimes leaving the front desk completely abandoned. The apology: complimentary flatbread special appetizer - not very good. By the end of the meal, I was wondering why we had waited so long for mediocre food and rude service. We ordered the Vermont sausage (which was uncooked in the middle and completely unappetizing), a dozen oysters (not much to mess up there), the schnitzel (which the waitress sold to us as "to die for" was nothing compared to the schnitzel at Blaue Gans/Wallse), the pork rillette, lobster bisque, and the lamb duo special. You can find better food with a nicer staff and more pleasant ambience elsewhere. Definitely not worth it.
