Chef Daniel Boulud's hip bistro serves meat-centric French comfort food in a sprawling space.- Google
"Their Bone Marrow Appetizer and blood/pig head sausage were perfect."
"The location is great and the bar in itself has a great atmosphere."

Not quite sure where the attitude issues posted by others arise from but we had a great dinner - arriving early, without reservation, as a family of four. Everybody was very friendly and patient. The food was really good, great fresh oysters (east coast, 1 USD during happy hour), good salad, mussels, kids Burger, fettucine with Tuscan sausage and sundaes for desert . It is not two Michelin-star stuff, but that's not the aim of the place. Maybe the wine was a bit too warm when it arrived but it cooled down quickly in the ice bucket.

Sigh. I hate restaurants like this.... they have a recognizable chef (not famous by any means) and get an ego. This restaurant is average, not great. I love french food, I love wine so this seemed like a good impromptu early dinner on a weeknight. The hosts were incredulous that we didn't call ahead for a reservation, yet the entire restaurant was empty we were literally the only patrons there. They told us we could sit wherever we want if we ate quickly lol. I can not even believe we stayed after that comment, but we did sit down and then they moved us to a little corner where we took up as little space as possible. Anyway, getting onto the food it was decent. We shared charcuterie which was well balanced and the wine was also tasty (rose, cabernet). We got two meat dishes, nothing overly memorable, but I thought it was decent. I just didn't like the atmosphere at all. It was snooty and they didn't have time for us. Who cares if a dinner rush is coming, don't snub foodies that live in the area and will choose to never return. Oh, and the waiter messed up the bill so badly and thought we wouldn't notice! Charged us for a bottle instead of a class of the wine and charged the credit card to that effect and then had to charge again a different amount. Amateur service for Bowery.

Overpriced, extremely loud, and flavourless food. The desserts weren't entirely bad but to enjoy them you have to get through the rest of the meal. The staff is at least friendly.

$10 Beer and Schnitzel (Srsly) So that’s like getting a free beer, or schnitzel, right? Yep! You’ll be dining in elegance too, it’s a DBGB on going special that most people don't know about. TBH, when I use to think of going to DBGB it was never just for a quick bite and a beer but an elaborate dinner. Now you know that it caters to both! You have your option of any beer on the menu with one of three dog options. So grab a seat at the bar and stay a while. There’s the original DBGB dog which is your standard American dog, a lamb with mint option, and a Thai dog. They don’t skimp on the size either, these are full size schnitzels. If you haven’t been to DBGB for a full meal, I suggest it. You won’t be displeased. Scouts honor. I mean DBGB is the place that took my white asparagus virginity, it has to treat you well. My advice - You shouldn’t pass this deal up, it’s waiting for you. All the beer, garnishes and sauces just called your name, I know.

This restaurant feels like a food factory. Service was automatic and not genuinely personal. The food had little flavour, although it was warm. The atmosphere was impersonal. I will not go back again.

Very Noisy. Awful atmosphere. Worse Burger even eaten. Ovepriced. Not even worse considering when there are much better options in the area.

If you're looking for french inspired food for a decent price in a nice neighbor, DBGB is definitely something to go for. The menu is interesting and the food is well executed. Very classic and nothing crazy but just efficient as we like it. The location is great and the bar in itself has a great atmosphere. They also have a nice alcohol and wine selection.
