Came here for a friend's birthday. If you are a meat and sausage lover this place is for you. I had a great burger and fries that was paired well with a recommended cocktail.

Stopped by here last Saturday. They specialize in more casual food, and we had two types of sausages as appetizers. Dinner was a salad, a pasta and a burger. All were very tasty. The wait staff was attentive without hovering (he knew we had a curtain to catch). I expect we would have had a long wait if we'd tried... More

I met an old friend here for dinner and the nice thing about the evening was that while we were trying to catch-up on things, we were never rushed form the table, so high marks on that. The food was excellent and the waitstaff very helpful in explaining things. Fairly simple food compared to his other restuarants but still excellent.

I've been several times in DBGB over the past 2 years and the burgher has always been Top! Taste it with some beer discovered in the wide menu and you'll be sure to have a great dinner.

Loved the atmosphere but the restaurant was too loud. It was difficult to have a conversation. The dinner was average. I have eaten at three other Daniel Bolud restaurants in Palm Beach and NY and thoroughly enjoyed them; but was unimpressed with this spot.

Wow, this place was really amazing. While normally I don't really care about the comfort of the chairs, booths, etc, the booths are so comfortable. - Viennoiseries: We're really good, the croissants was flakey and buttery, the madeleines were also outstanding. - Charcuterie Plate: Eh, the ham/prosciutto was pretty good, but the headcheese, ugh. Wayyy too fatty. - Basil rice:... More

After going to a play at Sheen Center wandered over for late dinner on a Wednesday night. Restaurant was packed - and very noisy. So much noise it was difficult to carry on a conversation. Bread (fabulous) was served after we finally got some attention from a waiter. Son had two sausages combo ($25) - one Thai and not sure... More

Went there for brunch on Sunday. Was very excited to try one of their sausage breakfasts and was no disappointed. They can't serve alcohol until noon on Sundays, but the homemade soda was good. Tasted all entree's at our table and all were delicious! Would recommend going there, especially if you are a foodie! Construction is going on right in... More

A very good range of excellent sausages, along with some good seafood. The atmosphere is very good in the large, industrial design back room with friendly, helpful staff. Staff efficiency seemed somewhat varied but with some great background music, inspired by the once nearby CBGB's, to add to the good food, it's a great place to dine.

Based on the food alone, DBGB would rate five stars. However, two hours and forty minutes is a long time to sit, especially when most of it was spent waiting for someone to take our order, getting our food out of the kitchen, attempting to get a check and finally, retrieving the credit card after the bill was paid. That... More
