dp An American Brasserie
Josh, the wine sommelier, always recommends a great bottle for us. On this occasion, he recalled the wine we had gotten last time. Doug, the bartender, mixes up some clever cocktails that are seasonal and delicious. We had lovely conversations with the Dominick and Donna too.
We always love DP's, even during a pandemic. We all need to support our local restaurants and restauranteurs during this difficult time. DP's handles the cleaning and sanitation well with fewer tables, great cleaning, and masks.
As for food, the salmon was to die for and their hamburgers and fries are delicious. We had a great dinner and will be back again to support them.
Everything was amazing, we are regulars and they remember us and they make us feel welcome
Food was excellent and menu has a great variety. Staff and owners treat you like family.
As always the Pernomo family does a great job! This time however the server was poor and that is very rare for this wonderful restaurant!
We felt very comfortable in this environment....tables well spaced. The menu had enough variety to satisfy and service was excellent.
Had a brownish blond hair in our food.. Waitress made a comment that,”no one is back there with that hair color”. Didnt really apologize. No manager came over to speak with us (granted it was late)..She did take it off our check. Fiancé was disgusted because it was in his mouth - yuck
Always a good choice for an informal dining experience. The food and service were very well done. A pleasant atmosphere in downtown Albany. The menu has a nice choice of selections. Highly recommended.
Not worth the price. Disappointed in the food. Service was okay.
The staff is wonderful. Our server was fantastic. 2 hours before dinner, my bridesmaid messaged the owner on FB and let him know we were celebrating that evening. They were kind enough to print a special menu with my name and congratulatory note. The suckling pig dumplings were out of this world. I was expecting 1 single dumpling and it came with 4. The brussels sprouts were a hit with the whole table. One order was a great start for 5 people. Cocktails were great. Some people may consider them a little pricey on that front, but as a NYC transplant (from Colonie) it's worth it for the quality. Our meals were delicious. Most of us ordered the bucatini with shrimp. The pasta was a tiny bit al dente for my taste but that's a personal preference so I won't take points away for that! Finally, after we decided no dessert, our server brought us a dish of single bite sweets with "Best Wishes' written in chocolate. I will definitely be back next time I am in town!
Arrived and seated immediately, outdoors. Staff was excellent, food was perfect. Fish tacos were crunchy on the outside and cooked perfectly. Bucatini was al dente and the shrimp were outstanding. Finally felt “normal”while dining! Thanks all!
Enjoy the 36 mussels that was sever to me but an excellent waiter, and will be likely to return again.
Josh picked out a great bottle of wine for us and Doug continues to make fun cocktails. Our meals were delicious and had a spicy kick, which we like. My pasta special was huge and made for good leftovers.
Nice place with great food and wonderful staff. Our server, whos name I believe was Alice, was top notch! Made the experience amazing for the two of us being first timers to the restaurant. First date was magical!
Great food and service. Chose to eat outside over Covid fears and felt very comfortable. Our server, Bret, was friendly and efficient. Will reserve again.
The entire experience was great, the staff was friendly and the food was great. They were glad to let us pick from the different menus they had and they were very professional
The food and service was excellent. You can see they really appreciate your business. I've always had great dining experience with DP & Yono's
Good food, great atmosphere. Great place to celebrate.
The wait staff is competent and friendly. The food was amazing. We had the dumplings, lamb sliders, fried chicken sandwich, french onion soup, brussel sprouts, and duck fat fries. The sliders were my clear favorite, but all the food was amazing. Easily the best restaurants (DPs/Yonos) in the capital district.
The manager and staff went above and beyond for our friends special day. We were able to work with Donna to build a customized menu. This is my fourth occasion I have planned with them and I cannot express how much they make the experience special and memorable. Thank you and your staff so much again.
Wonderful food and service with all safety protocols in place.
Always a memorable dining experience at dp An American Brasserie! We came to celebrate our anniversary (as we do each year), and as always, we were wowed by exceptional service, an extensive wine/beer list, and extraordinary and thoughtfully put together dishes. It is always an above and beyond dining experience at dps.
Excellent!! Food was phenomenal and they have fully embraced sanitation to comply with COVID requirements. We will be back!
Food was amazing and service was great! Very glad they're open 😊
Our server was excellent and attentive!! Thank you!!
The best food, the best service, the best drinks. Absolutely love it here.
In the midst of Covid-19, DP's was just what we needed. A worry free night out. Tables were spaced, masks were worn, all rules were followed yet it did not interfere with enjoying our evening. Food was exceptional as usual. I recommend a night out at DP/Yonos.
The food was phenomenal. Clearly, the chef/owner takes great pride in providing original, thoughtful and delicious food that’s not your typical “comfort food” but lighter and with great refreshing flavors. I can’t wait to go back. I had the Indonesian noodles my wife had the Pasta Ryleigh. We both were not willing to share- haha. Don’t tell your friends because I want to be able to book a table going forward.
dp An American Brasserie is the perfect happy hour or dining experience. My husband and I have been going to dps for nearly ten years, and each time is as perfect as the last. Be prepared for exceptional service, friendly and knowledgeable servers, elegant cocktails, an outstanding beer and wine list, lovingly prepared plates, and attention to the tiniest detail. dps is always a prime choice - no matter what the occasion. I would highly recommend a visit - the sooner, the better!
Excellent food! Amazing place to eat! Great atmosphere with excellence around every corner!
The food is always outstanding and this time was no exception. We were celebrating a graduation and had an outstanding bottle of wine - recommended by Nic, himself.
The octopus appetizer was delicious an my fish was done to perfection. Our other meals, a noodle dish and a pasta were also quite good and even delicious the day after.
dp's has done a wonderful job of dealing with re-opening and I didn't feel crowded or rushed and our server, Giuliana, was not only very attentive, but knowledgeable of the menu.
I've always loved dp's and this time was no exception.
Great food and great service as always
Wonderful causal dinner. Delicious burger , fabulous cosmopolitan, yummy French fries and best Irish coffee — first of the season!
Wonderful salmon burger and sweet potato fries with an Irish Coffee.
Server Kathleen was lovely, efficient and very attentive.
Great ambience, super tasty food at a reasonable price. I had a burger with their bacon shallot aioli and was very pleased with the size and the fries
Everything was perfect. I can’t think of a way to make it more special. It was perfect!!
DPs is by far our most favorite restaurant in Albany. Great fun ambiance. Broad menu where everything is terrific. Excellent service. Not to be missed.
Good American style food. Wish you didn’t have to pay for parking as a restaurant guest.
The food and service were amazing. Staff were incredibly friendly and attentive - one even offered me a ride to my car, which was unfortunately towed (my own fault). It’s a very nice atmosphere, quiet and comfortable. Will definitely be back.
dp’s is our favorite restaurant in the entire Capital Region! I cannot say enough about how amazing the entire dining experience is —from start to finish. Our table was ready when we arrived, and our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Our cocktails were perfection (my husband is still raving about his excellent Mai-Tai), and I thoroughly appreciate that Singlecut Half Stack is always available on tap (I cannot find it anywhere else locally). Our entire meal was out of this world: from our calamari appetizer to our entrees (we had the short ribs and burger, both which were incredible). We don’t usually order dessert when we go out, but we HAD to try the citrus-infused doughnut holes, and boy, are we glad we did. They were, honest to God, the best doughnuts I’ve ever had, and I am not exaggerating! (If you go, do NOT skip them!) All in all, a wonderful experience, and we can’t wait to go back!
