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.

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.

Great night out to grab a bite to eat while in the Albany area. The hostess was accommodating, the waitress was friendly, and the wine and food deserve a special high five.

Many choices , delicious food. The pretzel rolls are a great accompaniment. We had the duck, chicken Gabriel, Indonesian noodles, a burger, oysters, dumpling of the day, potato chips and creme brulee. Each was excellent. The waitress was attentive, funny and friendly.

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.

This place is great. You can also order from the Yono’s menu. Ordered items from both menus and the food was outstanding. The place was comfortable and relaxing. I am not from the Albany area and took a chance and was happy I did. Will be making a return next time I am in the Albany area.

Delicious drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts. It's no surprise that Yono and Dominic are leaders in adapting to COVID rules and their devastating effects on dining out. The quality of the food at dp's has never been better. Social distancing and all the new protocols were followed and we felt completely comfortable and safe at all times. Give yourself a little taste of normalcy and enjoy an excellent meal at dp's or Yono's, or even some cocktails and appetizers, you won't regret it ! It was the best meal we've had in months. We're going back next week.

This was not my favorite dining experience that I have had at this restaurant. It was overwhelmingly loud and the waiters only paid slight attention to our table. I was also shocked at how many people they had in the restaurant and the lack of distancing that was taking place.

Our server was very nice but needed some training. Came back to our table each time we ordered having forgotten something we had requested. The shrimp cocktail special was neither jumbo or impressive for the price tag. Some of our apps came out and some where forgotten. Our drink orders were forgotten. Our dinner entrees where over seasoned and a bit heavy. They needed some freshness or brightness. The 10pm closure of restaurants was not on our mind because we have not been out at all. I would have appreciated being reminded when asked if we wanted desert rather then ordering, being told we needed to take it to go and that we had to make other choices. It was a strange experience and not what I have received on previous occasions at this restaurant. It seems like it’s time for a refresh of the menu and better training for staff.

We went there as our special Christmas dinner, and it lived up to the occasion. Our server was fantastic. The wine recommendations from the sommelier were dead on. The food was very good! In the world of COVID, this restaurant continues to deliver. They offer a safe environment while still bringing a quality experience. Highly recommend.

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.

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

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!
