dp An American Brasserie, is a signature restaurant by Dominick Purnomo. It offers a menu of imaginative and inventive cuisine, over two dozen small plates, traditional favorites and a selection of Chef Yono’s signature menu items for lunch and dinner.

At just under 2000 sq ft with 18 foot ceilings and an abundance of natural lighting from six oversized windows, dp is a room that demands attention. Our dining room offers a mix of table & banquette seating in a decidedly more casual atmosphere than Yono’s.

It features a 25 foot custom mahogany and granite bar stocked with a full array of spirits, cordials, and of course myriad wines by the glass. We pride our beverage program on fresh, seasonally inspired cocktails, and a by the glass wine program, which changes several times per week, that rivals any in the region. Guests are also invited to peruse the 1,000 selection Wine Spectator “Best of Award of Excellence” winning Yono’s wine list.

Anna our server was excellent and the food was too!! The other staff was very good as well. My only thing was that I had to pay to park across the street from the restaurant because it wasn't clear where to park. We appreciate all the Happy anniversary wishes from Anna and the other staff. We will be back maybe for my birthday in August.

Amazing meal, but LOUD… you’d think the restaurant was six or seven times larger than it is.

Good solid bar, excellent small plates, but the entrees were somewhat lackluster. Server was very nice. Bartender was also very good.

The waitress wasn’t the greatest. She may have been new. She didn’t seem sure of herself, and she spilled a little of my wife’s drink on me as she was reaching across to give it to her. The food was very good.

Great staff, food was good, probably the best cheesecake I’ve ever had. The only negative was the booth was the most uncomfortable thing I’ve ever sat on. Doesn’t sound like that big of a deal but picture basically sitting on a wooden crate while eating and drinking for 1.5 hours. Like they just didn’t want to spend money on decent furniture.

Date night for the two of us. We'd never been before, but had heard good things. Food was excellent. Craft cocktails were fantastic. Parking was a bit troublesome on a Friday evening. Felt very bad for our server; short staffed on the floor and at the bar made for a longer than expected wait time for drinks and food. But she was very pleasant and apologetic.

If you are looking for a restaurant do not go to DP / YONO’S ...
this is not a restaurant ... it is a dining experience! It brings New York City charm and elegance to Albany ...

We began our evening with perfectly crafted SoCo manhattans at the bar... then moved to a quiet corner table per our request and enjoyed perfectly prepared fare of Caesar, calamari, Pasta Ryleigh and Steak Cobb. Owners Yono and Donna stopped by to chat as usual and we ended the night with a fabulous birthday cake made by Donna herself!!!!

When you want a special evening out or just want to enjoy drinks and bites with friends in downtown Albany this is the spot... walk in minutes to the Palace Theater, Capital Rep or the TU Center ...

Make a reservation now !
You will love it ....

First time coming back after pandemic. It was noisy because of the Kentucky Derby and the food was a little under temp. But Brett, excellent waiter told Donna the owner and all problems were resolved!! We love this place 😊

Dp and Yono's are by far the best restaurants in the Capital District. We absolutely love dining at both of them and were very impressed with our incredible meals and the impeccable service.

Was so happy to be able to dine again at dp An American Brasserie, after such a long time not going out at all. Although their take-out is exceptional, nothing beats sitting at the bar for a date night, enjoying an apertif or crafted cocktail, and happily slurping fresh, briny oysters with a bright citrus mignonette. We also couldn't resist the flash fried calamari and peppers dipped in a zesty remoulade. We moved over to a table for dinner. Lots of new menu selections! My crisped skin roast salmon with kale and a sauté of Spring vegetables was perfection, accompanied by a fresh salad of baby lettuces, watermelon radishes, micro greens and goat cheese. My partner was craving the famous dp burger, a hefty beast loaded his way, with blue cheese, onions, mushrooms and whatever else he could cram on the brioche bun! Plus, those duck fat french fries! He was too stuffed for a dessert, but I needed a sweet-a delicious and unusual dragonfruit sorbet. So refreshing. It was good to see some familiar faces, Josh, a Sommelier, greeted us warmly; Alice, our most accomodating Server, we even got to see Owners Yono and Donna Purnomo! A most enjoyable, pleasant evening out with great food, drink, and company of old friends.

The service was so so. The waitress seemed more like she was filling in than a regular waitress. Her greeting as she gave us the menu was what would you like, not would you like a beverage or are you ready to order or something more pleasant. It appeared she was responsible for all tables. A lady next to us seemed to wait quite a while before someone approached her. The food was wonderful as usual. By the end, the waitress seemed to be in a better mood.

Outstanding food and service! As someone in the hospitality industry I really admired the service we received from our server Brett, he was top notch! His hospitality and attention to detail were much appreciated! He made great recommendations and was so personable and attentive all night! The dumplings were delicious but the stir fried noodles were somehow even better, I can’t wait to go back for more! I highly recommend dining here for a high quality dinner at a very cost friendly price.
