    Food was excellent, including 21 veg salad, halibut, pork belly and goose duck duck. Server Ben was terrific, knowledgeable and efficient. Sat on patio, one of the ladies seated at bar was dressed far too revealing clothing, should not be permitted. Food so good we will go back tho.

    Lovely restaurant, we had a table with a view which we enjoyed. Food and drinks were good. The crab cake appetizer was disappointing as it had alot of filler, maybe that is the way Italians like their crab cakes, I was hoping for more crab meat and less filling.

    DBA has been one of our go-to restaurants for a special occasion or just a night out at a stylish place with friends and family. The atmosphere is always cool. We have been there multiple times and I cannot ever recall a bad meal or service. It is definitely the most stylish place in Akron, but the delicious unique food and attentive service make it one of our favorite places anywhere.

    We went here to celebrate our anniversary and we had a wonderful dinner! The staff, food and atmosphere were great. We have dined at Dante in Cleveland a few times and always loved it but this was our first time at DBA and we will definitely be back!
