Very good. Place was packed which meant extra pressure on the servers and the chef’s team. They did not disappoint in any way. The Thai sausage was perfectly done and the burger was outstanding, full of flavor. From the size of the crowd, DBGD is not overlooked but it likely is underrated. Cant wait to go back.
Brunch on a Saturday. Liked the location; the computerized screen outside is an interesting touch to the environment. Food was nice. Oysters, lobster roll and Thai frittata were all very enjoyable. Staff was very friendly but professional. Very interested in our thoughts about individual dishes. Sommelier was informative and we ended up booking a wine event at Early Mountain for the next day after talking to him. That was a wonderful experience. Will look forward to another time so we can experience the broader range of the menu.
Great combination of casual and upscale. Good energy in the restaurant but you can still easily have a conversation. Food and service were both excellent, everyone in our group enjoyed the meal very much.
Branzino for two was the best fish we have ever had! We have eaten in most of the major cities of Europe and the United States. Waiter was extremely thoughtful and courteous. Table was in a rather noisy location; otherwise, just outstanding!
The food had high points and low points. The kitchen isn’t paying enough attention to what they are sending out. My Frenchie burger was good but the frites had either been sitting under a heat light too long or had been dropped in the oil too many times. The ice cream in the dessert called Cappuccino was too icy and not creamy. Little things that make a difference to me in a restaurant that I like and expect more of.
I like DBGB; really good French-inspired cooking in a cool space. Terrific wine list.
Nice options from multiple colleagues. Service was slow enough to require us be there longer than we had hoped for a business lunch.
Wanted to try this restaurant for awhile and it didn’t disappoint. Met a friend for dinner and had a lot to catch up on. Staff was helpful but also gave us time and space to talk and eat leisurely. Large, varied wine list. Shared the Thai sausage appetizer, flavor was full but not overpowering. The main courses were equally tasty (rockfish and crab fettuccine) and brought when we were ready, not rushed. The light show from the City Center was an added touch to our table. Would definitely eat here again.
Stopped in after seeing "The Comedy of Errors" at the Lansburgh Theatre, which was short enough that I was able to place my order before the kitchen closed at 10 PM. Got the Thai sausage appetizer, which was very tasty, and the Merguez entrée, which seemed under-seasoned. Service was deft and friendly.
Absolutely nothing to complain about!
Service wasn’t great. Was seated in bar even though had reservation.
I had a business lunch here today and we both ordered the Express $27 lunch. Appetizer, entree and dessert to go. It was an excellent value. Food was good. My pate was above average. The Frenchie Burger was abundant and really good. My only problem is that they undercook the bacon which makes it hard to bite through for a sandwich. My guest's burger was not done medium-well as she ordered and they immediately took it back and gave her another one--perfectly cooked. The "to go" Madeleines are nice. Service is first rate. I highly recommend DBGB, at least for the Express Lunch
Even though it was Happy Hour they made a meal off of the Dinner Menu for me. It was absolutely delicious. Just wish they had a bigger dessert menu.
Awesome food. Good value with Travelzoo voucher. Excellent service.
Always a cut above. Also, the best burger in DC
Over cooked the Côte de Beouf the first time, had to wait another 35 minutes to make another one. Other than that, I liked it. Streak was excellent!
Very enjoyable and thoughtful menu and wine list. Came back for a full dinner after having stopped in for happy hour the day before. Friendly knowledgeable staff and very good food! Everything we anticipated so thanks for a wonderful experience.
I arrived early and was seated in a quiet corner where I could see the street. I ordered the handcrafted Old Fashion which had a curious flavor that I enjoyed more and more as I sipped. I ordered the Romaine salad which had a tart Caesar-like dressing, which I loved. The bread and butter are divine and worth every calorie. I only eat bread when it is amazing. Crispy, crunchy on the outside and delicate and chewy on the inside with the most wonderful tasty butter. I read in other reviews to order the duck - I thought about asking for it to be served on something other than red grits, but thought let's see maybe the chef knows something about combining and balancing flavors - oh yes he did. The outside of the duck was crispy the inside succulent and slight hint of plum flavoring with the creamy red grits balanced with leeks - luscious. To round off an amazing meal, I ordered the chocolate souffle - where did it go - how come my little crock pot is empty. Well clearly when I eat a perfect souffle, I have zero self-control and demolished it. Why - because the top had just the amount of crispness, the poured in chocolate anglaise was sensational, the texture was magnificent. I regret I did not take any photos. My only recommendation - although I was happy with the table, there is a light screen outside that continued to change the lighting and my husband found it distracting. If something like that would bother you, I would recommend requesting a table away from the window. While the server seemed slightly inexperienced, he made up for that in being so eager to please and attentive. I reminded him to start the souffle, and I think he nearly ran to the kitchen so it would come out on time. My husband loved his meal too. If souffle isn't your thing, order the profiterole - they are magnificent.
Great food, service, location
Wonderful experience from start to finish. Ambiance was elegant and comfortable, service was attentive and thoughtful. Food was beautifully done. We enjoyed the seared tuna to start and it was perfectly done. Duck breast and scallops for the entree and signature baked Alaska were all outstanding. Wine recommendations from the knowledgeable Vanessa were spot on. We were delighted by a visit from Chef Tang, and will not soon forget the evening.
We'll be back.
The restaurant and wait staff went out of their way to accommodate our multi-generational table for 7 (from age 8 to 80.) Lovely meal and ambiance
DBGB was wonderful. The food was great..special emphasis on the mini crab cake appetizer and the red grits, I highly recommend them both. My wife enjoyed the Rockfish and I had the Merguez sausage w/ cous cous which we’re both great as well. The Rockfish was moist but the skin was still crispy. Service was prompt and knowledgeable. Noise level could get pretty high in the room we were in, but since it was storming this night, it wasn’t as crowded as I’m sure they normally are. I’d be cautious if I want a “quiet” romantic dinner, but the ambience is still very cozy.
The Maryland Blue Crab Spaghettini is to die for, our service was amazing and our waiter was very attentive. We will be back next time we are in DC.
We were expecting much more, however they did not have 2 if the items I wanted/unavailable, not gluten free or Soy free, so I opted for mini crab cakes, which was served on top of a white mush of puréed artichoke that did not taste well with crab cake, especially not much flavor seasoning in it. They apologized for it and comp'ed my Sauterne instead of the weird food. Haricot Verde is green bean salad which I'm allergic to sit and beans, so it went back. My nurse aide didn't like anything so she tried to cut the bread, Iraq&Iran war in her belly after...Dabney & Fig&Olive were better choices. Faux French food. I prefer Chamier country kitchen than contemporary American-wanna be French. Sommolier was not well versed as I would have liked. Thank you for the Sauterne. It was the best item on menu. Wines are above average. Lil too pricey for the food, et al, but management was apologetic for errors server was lacking. Too many people bothering me about less than mediocre food. Tipped the waiter for his efforts. Did not live up to its reviews.
Service was not good, our waiter was short and not very hospitable, it took a long time for our check and when we had a questions he just went “yeah?” Even when we first sat down I was immediately turned off by his shortness and lack of personality. Not the level of service I was expecting for this price point. The Food had highs and lows; sausage and crab cake appetizers were great, the scallops were actually really good but only 3 scallops for $36.... the rockfish i has was disappointing. The only food thing about the entire dish was the fact the skin was crispy. Other than that, so freaking bland. Plus they charged for bread, and it was way too crusty, almost innedibly hard. As for the drinks, the old fashion was good, strong. But the “Passionate from miles away”, terrible. No way anyone could finish that drink. It was so spicy and strong, I have no idea where they were going with the flavors. The dessert we shared was good, however. Tableside Baked Alaska, gret vanilla, pistachio, and raspberry ice creams. The merrangue was flavorful and provided a nice balance. Even though there were minor hilights, I would never come back here. Again, service makes everything. And that service was a huge turnoff.
Great dining experience as always. A great restaurant!
Pricy, but worth every penny! Melt in your mouth dishes with local and seasonal ingredients paired with creative cocktails. Awesome service too, I’ll be back.
This place was french perfection. Loved every course. Service was beyond reproach and flavors are those only dreamed of. We will return!
Great Happy Hour drinks & food - they take reservations for Happy Hour with seating at the bar or tables which is a real plus!
Great menu items, accommodating hostesses and informed, amiable waiters.
Fantastic food, exceptional cocktails, and superlative service. I highly recommend!
I was not particularly impressed with the food especially for the price. We had the Romaine salad as an appetizer as well as the tuna. Both were good but nothing spectacular. For the main course we had the scallops and the steak frites. The scallops were good but I would not order the steak frites again. The service was very good but unfortunately the food did not match the service. For dessert we had the chocolate souffle which was again good but not spectacular.
Not many vegetarian options and the breakfast didn’t come with toast.
Food was pretty bad for the price. So many flies flying around and the glasses were dirty. Definitely not for a nice occasion. Steak was chewy and tough. The scallops were not fresh and smelled fishy (in a bad way). The scallops were also overcooked.
I wish that the service had been better, to even come close to matching the food. It was indifferent if not nearly hostile....very odd as I had not had this experience before at this place.
Happy hour wine and oysters were great! Fun ambiance but the food wasn’t as good as my first visit. The sausage wasn’t as fresh as it should have been, and the crab spaghettini dish was too oily.
Wife and I both had the steak frites. Very good but not par excellent. Liked that it came with a little salad. Seemed to be a place that the local business folk used.
The service was incredible. The wait staff is friendly and attentive while being very informative. The selection is varied and tasty.
Having had great experiences during lunch and dinner in the past, my dining companion and I decided to give DBGB brunch a try for the first time. Sadly, the execution of food was very slapdash and the service was far below the quality we experienced in the past. While the hostess was very patient and accommodating with us in helping us find the right table (the air at the initial table smelled like a used wet rag), our main server was grouchy. While it may be pain that I requested to change my entree after he entered it into the computer, I told him well enough in advance of the first course arriving that it didn't warrant an audible sigh and eye-roll. Thus, we didn't feel comfortable pointing out issues with our food that would follow.
For our first course, we chose the Soup and Heirloom Tomatoes. Our first choice was the soup because it had been a dish that had been consistently excellent at DBGB. Unfortunately, the Melon Gazpacho was piercingly sweet at first sip and too thin-bodied with very little to balance it out. The Tomatoes, while also thin from lacking a protein item (e.g. dairy-based topping or egg), otherwise tasted fine. Entrees were similarly mediocre: the Frenchie Burger was fine, but for the first time, the fries were so heavily salted and hard to shake off that we had to use ketchup. Also, upon requesting the mustard caddie as with previous visits, all we got was a thimble of only one typed. The Chicken Paillard tasted boiled with hardly any grill flavor and overly salted from the mustard sauce. If it weren't for the salad, it would have been a salt bomb. For dessert, the wimpy sundaes--2/3 volume being whipped cream. Ordering fantastic Madeleines and Cappuccino salvaged the entire meal.
While I've heard brunch can be less than stellar because the B-team often works the shift, we never experienced such a night-and-day difference in quality at any restaurant as we did here with our last visit.
Frenchie burger was excellent; cavatelli was only so-so. Service, as always, was excellent.
