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.

Awful! I have already sent the restaurant a letter but have not received a response! We took our children to a different place than we usually go. We were extremely disappointed. The appetizers camebout at the same time as the entrees and everything was cold. My son's grilled cheese was burned on the outside but the cheese was not melted on the inside. We had asked for another basket of pretzel bites, the waiter said of course but never brought them!

Service was great. Food, meh. Never had ANYTHING that could be considered a bad meal until this visit. All the dishes were mediocre, including our usual favorite fried Brussels sprouts. Was honestly confused and disappointed

This was one of the worst dining experiences I’ve had. My boyfriend has food allergies and they cross contaminated his food with shellfish and he had a severe allergic reaction. The meals were overpriced and the music was so loud I couldn’t hear the person a foot away from me without them yelling.

Attentive service is one of the hallmarks of this bustling, hip dining spot, which connects chef Dominick Purnomo's approach to that of his father Yono, whose elegant fine-dining establishment can be found through a door near the back. DP's features a variety of offerings for a range of budgets, along with an extensive wine list and a glistening bar.

Recommended for a romantic date or a special occasion; our Valentine's Day 2018 was well-spent here. One disappointment, however, was the lobster ravioli: an excellent preparation, but at $24 for an appetizer-sized portion, you'll likely be left hungry. Nevertheless, our server consulted with an on-staff sommelier to find the perfect wine pairing, a Viognier Blend from Côtes du Rhône, which was well worth the $12 per glass price tag.

We love this place. Was our fourth time there. Crab cakes are huge enough for sharing and truffle fries are crispy and thin. Never had anything that was so so. And sitting there at night with city lit up thru the huge windows is so wonderful.

The menu is not very large, but very eclectic, with daily specials also. The service is what really stands out also. This was my second trip to this restaurant, and our waitress Jessica remembered both of our names from our first visit over 2 months previously. I highly recommend this restaurant. I'll be back.

DP An American Brasserie did an exceptional job of making our anniversary a very memorable occasion. Every single staff member made our experience exquisite. Starting with the hostess, who sat us in the most intimate setting in the restaurant. She even took the time to inform our server of what the occasion was for our celebration. The cocktail wine and beer list is extensive, picking the perfect drinks to pair with our meal was no problem thanks to our wonderful and attentive server! She was very in tuned to our desires and the food was on par with the rest of the night! I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion with a significant other.

We had a reservation at 5:30pm; 2 adults 2 kids (14&8) before the show. Our waitress was nice , but the food was not. It totally ruined our evening that day... we left the restaurant with a rip-off feeling. I ordered steak frites, my husband ordered duck, kids ordered 2 burgers. Appetizer was fried calamari. Sooo... fried calamari were so salty that no one was able to eat them. We waited about 30 min to get our food and guess what - the only thing that came out hot - was the duck. And that’s it. My steak frites were cold ( I never had a cold steak in my life - so here, there is always a first time for everything), kids’ burgers were cold as well .... the manager came out and offered to reheat my steak - wow, really? Well , she did and guess what - after she “reheated” it - the fries were extremely hot and dry as well as the plate itself, but not the steak- so I had to eat my steak cold.... the burgers were cold and inedible- kids left the restaurant hungry. We paid over $100 for who knows what.... please stay away from this rip off place - unless you want your food to be “ reheated”...
Never again...

$20 kobe sliders over cooked- burned served in cold rolls. Chicken dumplings (3) arrived cold! Salad and onion soup were acceptable but not for what they cost. I spoke with the owner who to her credit was on the floor. She immediately apologized and told me that we would be paying for NOTHING but our drinks. When the bill came nothing had been deducted. I asked the waitress to pls see the owner for a bill adjust. When she returned we were charged for the soup and salad plus drinks. Really! We just paid and left w/o further ado. I can not recommend this establishment.

We have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while and we are so glad we did! The staff was friendly and professional. The bartender, Pete, was personable and informative. Walked us through a preview of both dp's and Yono's menu. The owners are present and accessible. Food choices are varied and our appetizers and entrees were delicious! Loved the atmosphere. We plan to go back soon.

We've eaten lunch at dp and have enjoyed it very much. But they crank up the music to a level that makes it impossible to talk. I think their demographic is people under the age of 60. The food at dp and it's partner, Yono's, is always a delight.
