Dressler in Billyburg...any good?

  • 9

I remember reading some reviews when it first opened and wanted to try the place. Can anyone reccomend or tell me to stay away? Is is better than Dumont?

Thanks!

  1. There hasn't been much, but here's some old reviews

    1. ate there on sunday and have had drinks at the bar a few times. pomegranate martinis are delicious, nice wine list, good service. it's pricey for what it is but no disappointments ... the crispy artichoke salad, bass and steak are all yums. get the onion rings on the side. a-ma-zing. spent $130 on 3 drinks, 1 ap, 2 entrees, 1 dessert.

      1. Great, but not super amazing. My boyfriend and I went there 3 weeks ago. The biggest standout for me was the fresh pea and lobster soup appetizer -- truly fabulous. I had the roast chicken main course, and actually prefer Dumont's. My boyfriend had fish (I can't exactly remember which), but said it was good, not great. For dessert, I had caramel creme brulee (scrumptious!) and the BF had strawberry rhubarb tart with buttermilk ice cream (also delish.) Ambiance and service were very nice. We also spent $130.

        1. We ate there over the summer and while it was perfectly pleasant and service was good, for the life of me, I can't remember what any of us ate. Not too memorable, in other words.

          1. I really liked it- especially the cucumber martini. Here is the link to a review I posted a while ago
