I liked everything including the price. Nice affair. Apps and wine plus great courses leads to a wonderful experience. Dan, of course, was at this best, meeting and greeting. YEA!!

We came here for pre dinner drinks. The overall decor is nicely done giving the bar a nice lounge feeling, with a great cosy atmosphere. The drinks options were plentiful, with good options for happy hours choices.

My wife and my daughter went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. We chose the Miami Spice menu. The room was nice, not too loud--thank God-- and the service excellent. The food was not as good as one would expect from such a high end chef-owner (obviously Boulard was not doing the cooking). Miami Spice runs for two month a... More

I do not reside in the USA but had the pleasure of dining at the db Bistro on September 23rd, 2014 - what an experience. The GPS unit found the place without problem. Valet parking was included and appreciated as I did not know where to park. I loved everything about this place... the food... the atmosphere... the set up...... More

Daniel Boulud has outdone himself! We read that the restaurant had won the best burger in USA, and it really is! The restaurant was offering a table d'hôte special, appetizer, the hamburger and homemade fries , a glass of wine and dessert - the meal was outstanding and so was the service. The manager Christophe Chalange was a great host... More

We were going to go to another restaurant, but there was a large bike ride going on and we couldn't get our car from the hotel garage. Walked across the street and ended up with a pleasant surprise at this restaurant. We tend to be small eaters so enjoyed there small plate choices. We both had an Italian dish and... More

DB didn't disappoint. We tried it for happy hour before a movie, and it was great. The lounge is a large open space with very high ceilings and comfortable sofas. The champagne on the happy hour menu is a Billecart-Salmon Brut, which was served at the ideal temperature. Food was tasty, the highlight being the Tarte Flambee, a sort of... More
