We regularly go to DBA and it is a must for good food and good service.
We sat at the outside bar. It was perfect. The service was excellent and we felt very comfortable since we were outdoors. The scallops I had were some of the best I've ever tasted. They were perfectly prepared. My husband really enjoyed his steak as well. He raved about the DBA steak sauce.
An amazing meal with incredible service. Matthew was the best and the kitchen did an impeccable job. Highly recommend!
One of favorite restaurants in Akron. This was our first dine-in experience since March, and we chose wisely. Loved our waiter, Matthew — he was gracious, funny and made an excellent wine recommendation. The food was delicious as always. And the rest of the staff we interacted with was friendly and kind. Highly recommend!
Great place. Excellent outdoor space. I couldn’t be more complimentary on the exceptional staff. Pricing very reasonable for the quality of food. Wine selection limited.
Food was outstanding and the atmosphere was great! Great place with friends with fabulous outdoor dining, incredible drinks and attentive service!
Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious!
Great evening. DBA Chef and staff, especially our Server Matt, treated us like Kings with food and service to match. We had Tuna Tartare and Charcuterie and Cheese board to start. Fantastic
Caesar salad - excellent. Then the Linguini Bolognese. Best I’ve had since Italy. Steaks and Lamb Chops for entrees. Perfectly prepared. All on the outside patio. COVID friendly. Perfect evening. Great wine selection available as well. We’ll be back soon
Sat on the patio. Tables were nicely spaced apart and felt comfortable. While a smaller menu, still plenty to choose from. One of the best places in Akron.
The food was delicious, the service was great, and the setting is beautiful! First time there but definitely not my last. We tried the salmon and the fillet, both were delightful. From hostess to waiter to manager, all very welcoming and friendly
Good food, great service and nice outdoor seating with enough social distancing. The menu is a little smaller than pre Covid but the selection of the dishes was great. Well done.
Had the chicken. Extremely dry and lacked flavor.
DBA never never fails to deliver a fantastic meal with amazing service
Delicious food and great service as always. Matt is a fantastic server.
Ryan was a very attentive and excellent server.
Lorrie was Fantastic, it was our 1st time there and she was great at presenting the menu and making recommendations. Food was excellent and the crab cake was the best I've ever had! Loved the patio, Will definitely be back!
Our server was amazing! The food was delicious. We don’t advise sitting outside without a jacket it’s very windy & cool in the evening. Bedsides the breeze, they went above and beyond making our anniversary that much sweeter!
The chicken prepared was very bland.
First visit to D.B.A. although one from our group is a regular. Felt like we had they place to ourselves on a Thursday night. Excellent the whole evening. Everyone enjoyed their food.
We ate on the patio which is lovely - glad to have good weather. Our meals were wonderful! I had halibut which was prepared very well. Since I'm on a low salt diet, the chef prepared it to my specification. Everyone else had a delicious meal also. It was my birthday so our waiter gave me a complimentary dessert - yummy.
Great early evening meal on their lovely patio. Servers were attentive. Safety protocols followed. Food was delicious, great quality, and good portions. Looking forward to another meal soon.
As always, an excellent night out at D.B.A. 3 NY Strips, a Filet, and sides all prepared perfectly and delicious. The Charcuterie board has a large and varied selection of meats, cheeses, pate, confit, and condiments, all wonderful. Our server Matt was funny, knowledgeable, and attentive, without being obtrusive. Ambience is hip and modern, without looking like they are trying to hard to be either. The only slight disappointment is the reduced menu, which is of course understandable in the current situation. Everyone needs to visit this Akron gem and support D.B.A. in these trying times for restaurants.
Great food and service! Highly recommend this restaurant
Nice outside dining. Great food, great service, great environment.
Our new go to place during COVID.
The service was excellent. Very attentive server. The food was excellent and obviously prepared by first rate chefs. I have been recommending it to friends. Thanks for a great experience.
We had a fabulous meal and great service at DBA! The hostess was great, seated us a lovely table with a wonderful view outside. Our server Nate was outstanding. We started with martinis and the calamari and shrimp appetizer; best martini in town and the appetizer was great too. Our meal was cooked to perfection and dessert was great. A+
DBA, one of our long time fav's, seems to be struggling post shutdown. The food was good, but not up to DBA's normals. Service was excellent. Decent for a night out of quarantine.
Delicious. Hong Kong mussels a must! We will be back.
The food was not seasoned well, every dish was subpar and the scallops gave me indigestion. The waitress rarely checked in on us although it was not busy. The view was the best feature.
Fabulous as always! So happy to see you up and running again!
Best service I've received at an upscale restaurant. My steak was not cooked correctly at first and our server IMMEDIATELY sent it back for us to be corrected. Steak and sides were amazing, and their DBA steak sauce was the best I've ever had by far. I live an hour away and I will definitely be returning, without a doubt.
Friendly service. Very good and adventurous foods.
Matt was outgoing and attentive. He helped answer all of our questions and made great recommendations. We will be back again!
Smaller menu since they just reopened. But the food was delicious and the service was great.
Very clean, tables spread out, servers wearing masks. Food and cocktails were amazing! Highly recommend the scallops.
Sara gave us the perfect dining experience with great menu recommendations The food was delicious, atmosphere was fantastic, we will be back!
D.B.A. consistently has excellent food as well as service. John, our server on our most recent visit, is exceptional.
Awesome service and good food!! Went there for a date night and will definitely go back .
I will definitely be returning to do the Chef's Table experience.
