Gourmet greatness

I had a great meal at the bar, and the beet martini beverage was outstanding. Highly recommended scene, with one of the best burgers in the nation.

I don't generally give out amazing reviews for restaurants in Florida, however this had to be one of the most incredible meals we have had locally, as we live in Fort Lauderdale. We go to California all the time and get very disappointed when we come home to eat at restaurants here. I enjoy cooking so we would rather eat... More

What a great experience we had for dinner. The food was perfectly cooked. The wine pairing with every dish was great. I don't recall having a better lamb chop anywhere. This restaurant continues to impress me.

This is a fine restaurant with excellent service and food. My wife had the grouper paupiette which was delicate and excellently prepared and presented. I ordered the specialty burger which included inside it: turffles, short ribs and foie gras. The short ribs were tasty and distinguishable but the truffles and foie gras seemed lost. The tomatoes and thinly sliced salad... More

Were I to die, I could think of no final meal I would rather enjoy than what was tonight served to me at Bistro Moderne. Indeed, I can confidently say that this is the best meal I have ever experienced. And I say “experienced” because it was just that—an experience. Allow me to preface this review by saying that I...

We went there in February with my wife and we felt really good and had an amazing dinner.

We had quite high expectations of DB Bistro Moderne, but the first sign that something would go wrong was when our concierge in a hotel was eagerly reserving us Zuma, but a gave a glance, when we asked for DB reservation. The restaurant is located in the building of the average chain-hotel, and probably bears the philosophy of it. Catering... More
