My husband and I stopped here to eat dinner - I found the menu to be overpriced, over-rated and lacking in imagination for the amount of money we paid to eat here! The atmosphere was very business orientated and not in the least romantic - I could not wait to leave - would never eat here again! The service was... More

Ate dinner here recently. Was able to get a table without a reservation on a Monday night, bit the place was packed and I would think a reservation is generally a must. Interesting and inventive food and wine list. Small portion, but incredibly flavorsome and beautifully presented. The sommelier was a little robotic, but he does know his wines. Would... More

My favorite cocktail is the white cosmo. It is outta-this-world. AND soooo cool! Nobody else makes these quite like db does... with a frozen flower in the ice-cube... BTW, I did not care for the famous "db burger." It was $34 or so... and it's just not that great. You can do better at Shake Shack or Farm Burger... The... More

After a long day of traveling and meetings, I decided to order take out so I could work and relax in my hotel room instead of spending a few hours at the restaurant. Upon placing my to-go order at the bar, I discovered that my take out order had 18% gratuity included. The bartender double checked with the manager and... More

I had visited DB Bistro in NYC and liked it a lot. The Miami spot is just as good. Tried the octopus appetizer, the scallops with risotto, and chicken as main dishes. I was quite surprised with the chicken and tried it thinking that as a French restaurant it had to be good. It was juicy, tender and delicious. All... More

Ate there last night with family and had a wonderful experience overall. I had the pumpkin soup which was a disappointment, however, the bread was fabulous. My entree was a tasting board of cured meats, cheeses and assortment of wonderful other delights. The desserts was decadent and service was fantastic. BTW, I enjoy the wine from Spain Bodegas y Vinedos... More

Oh my; where to begin? Everything was top notch - from the service, to the food and desserts to the drinks (wine and cocktails). One of things we noticed was the team approach to service. While we had a waiter and sommelier, other members of the waitstaff did not hesitate to fill water, clear plates, etc. All of our needs... More
