First time out for four of us after being fully vaccinated. Went to The Speakeasy for cocktails - and they were excellent.
Followed up with dinner at Dba. Mussels, Shrimp Cocktail, Burrata, and the large Porterhouse for two with three sides. Wonderful food. Excellent service. Ran into people we know and stayed around for some after dinner drinks.
A great night. It felt like old times!
Eh.. overpriced steaks that were not memorable. Noisy. Service good and no complaints.
Expected a wow experience but was underwhelmed
Outstanding food and service. We look forward to going back again soon.
Great evening! Second time in a month going here and I will continue to support this local spot. They checked all the boxes one expects in a nice evening out
Our server Jon was delightful. Enjoyed our experience very much!
This was our first time at D.B.A. It was our 20th anniversary and I could not have picked a better restaurant. This place was amazing. The food is delicious, our server John was awesome and very knowledgeable on the wine pairing. I opted for the chef's table with wine included.
We've celebrated other occasions at Ken Stewarts, Hyde Park, and Flemings, by far D.B.A is the best. We will definitely be back.
Great business dinner. Our waiter John was absolutely amazing!!
we celebrated our 20 year anniversary and they made it special. Matt worked hard to make us feel comfortable and to educate us on the best menu items. Mussels were off the charts and the bartenders favorite martini matches mine. great evening start to finish.
will be regulars.
The entire experience was awesome. Our waiter was amazing!
Very good food and very good COVID protocols in place.
Outstanding meal, had a private dining room. Server was attentive to our needs, Risotto appetizer was great!
Good food and excellent service. Great atmosphere as well
Everything we had to eat was excellent: appetizers, salad, main course. Our server Brad was very, very good as well.
I loved it. Our waiter John was amazing. Service was fast, drinks were A1 and food was delicious. Not one complaint.
Just another night of exceptional dining at D.B.A. , which we have found to be the norm at this Akron gem. The food prep, service, drinks, and atmosphere were all beyond compare. I ordered my strip steak "Pittsburgh rare", and it was cooked to perfection. The Friday special fried fish was a huge filet, crispy outside and flaky inside...wonderful. The wait staff is always great, but if you are lucky enough to get Matthew as your server, you are fortunate indeed. Matt is knowledgeable, funny, and attentive without being intrusive. Just a great guy. It was my wife's birthday, and Matt made sure to make it a very special evening for her
DBA is quickly becoming our favorite restaurant in the Akron area. The food and the service were superb. Our vegetarian friend enjoyed the dishes available, and the seafood eaters among us enjoyed the green spaghetti (with shrimp), the scallops and the tuna steak special. The server had a great personality and excellent timing.
As 1st timer, I was super impressed. Service was awesome! Food was superb.
Everything was wonderful! Scallops were phenomenal!
We were celebrating our 53rd wedding anniversary. The shrimp and calamari appetizers were simply amazing - never experienced such light batter. Caesar salad was the low point - no anchovies but still nice. Seared scallops with Mac their noise level was more like a sports bar, not one of the classy restaurant in Akron. Will definitely return.
Amazing food & service from one of our favorite restaurants in north Akron.
Delicious as usual. Great service. Who would have thought green spaghetti would taste this amazing.
Trendy, fun, great atmosphere. Our food, salmon and linguine bolognese was outstanding and our waiter, Jon, was so personable and funny!
Great experience for an anniversary dinner. Ambiance was nice and the staff was very attentive. The food was absolutely exquisite. Will definitely come back. The prices were very fair for the quality of the food and experience.
Celebrated my birthday with friends, food choices are wonderful, even during COVID.....I enjoyed shrimp tempura, crab cakes and an amazing burger, topped off with Nutella pie 😎. Looking forward to the next visit. Our waiter Greg always is on top of his game and has a great connection with his customers.
Good as always. Shrimp tempura is a must!
DBA is one of my favorite spots to grab drinks or dinner. Love the atmosphere and employees make you feel welcomed & comfortable.
We loved our meals, our drinks, and the service was incredible! This is why we keep coming back to DBA.
Food and service (especially our waiter Jon) was fantastic!
Everything was fabulous! Server Matt was amazing. Food was spot on delicious! Ambiance was very chic and releasing.
We will be back!
We dined at DBA for another date night. Jon was our server. Hands down some of the best top notch service ever with him. Very accommodating, gave great recommendations, knowledgeable sales, awesome personality, and he never skipped a beat or left us hanging at all. Highly recommend DBA. The food was INCREDIBLE. And the mixed drinks were in point!
My wife is petitie and on the shorter end. The waitress made sure to ask her how old she was in a demeaning tone. The waiter seemed dumbfounded when my pregnant wife asked what non alcoholic beverages they offered. The dry aged ribeye was rather flavourless and the herb crust had zero noticeable taste. It was at least cooked to order correctly. The duck fat fingerling potatoes and heirloom carrots were tasty. My companions enjoyed their filet. Not sure if this steak was just a miss that night but it lacked so much flavour you would expect from a ribeye. Not what I was hoping for from such a pricey place. I don't think I would return, I left the building and I thought how I should have ordered a pizza from luigi's across the street.
Matt our waiter exceeded expectations! Can’t say enough positive about this restaurant and the experience it
The food, atmosphere and service were all superb.
You can’t go wrong with any menu item.
Our favorite is the filet, heirloom carrots and truffle fries. Newer to the menu but now an absolute favorite is the 21 vegetable salad.
The food and service at DBA were exceptional and we will return. My friend and I shared the wings appetizer, and he had scallops and I had strip steak for the entrée. All was delicious. The server was friendly and did not make us feel rushed. The only negative to the evening was an extremely loud party at the front of the restaurant. Their noise practically overwhelmed the rest of the restaurant at times. That's why I gave only three stars for Ambience, although I do think the restaurant is designed well.
Loved our experience there. Already have our next reservation set for Valentines Day.
We did a chefs table 5 course dinner. Our server Ryan did a great job and Chef Nick’s food was delicious and he greeted us afterwards and took a picture with us. Only downside was that our private dinning room was right next to a very large group of very loud people. Will go back again!
Service was great and the ambiance was wonderful!
Food was pretty good. My wife and I both had filets. Their medium-rare is close, but a little more cooked than my wife likes. Other than that, no complaints about the meal. The atmosphere has gone down hill since the last time we were there. We were surrounded by drunk and loud younger diners. It was kind of difficult to have a conversation with my wife, even with the additional spacing between tables. Nothing the restaurant can do about obnoxious people. Just know that this place is attracting younger and louder people. Our server was great. He was very personable and took the time to have a few short conversations with us at the appropriate times. We appreciate the friendliness.
As always wonderful. It was our wedding anniversary. They closed off a small private room. Food was delicious. Ambiance was perfect. We will be back!
The food has gone downhill and there menu used to have more vegetarian options.
Great service and super friendly staff tho!!!
They seem to switch chefs and they have never been the same as when they first opened..downhill before pandemic too!
