We had dinner here prior to a concert at the Times Union. The staff worked as a team to provide excellent service. We shared the meatballs as an appetizer. They were moist and the gravy was savory. The home made bread, ravioli and risotto were delicious. We finished dinner with time to spare and we never felt rushed. More

Steakhouse | Albany, Upstate New York

The decor is warm and comfortable, and the lighting is especially creative and fun. There is a wide variety of seating available, and our booth was roomy and comfortable for three. The wine selection was excellent, as was the food. The snapper and vegetables was perfectly cooked. The steak one had was a bit overdone: he thought it may have continued to cook on the metal plate it came on, but the flavor was wonderful. The scallops and beans were good, not exceptional, and my husband could have used some sort of potato with it...especially given the price. We agreed it would be a better value if the fairly high cost of entrees included sides. But it was a very relaxed and comfortable, satisfying dining experience, overall. More

French | Albany, Upstate New York

The food we ordered was excellent, however the service was less than expected. Only one waiter - who was doing his best to keep up - with drinks brought to the table by the bartender and food by the host. Not necessarily a problem, but the drinks and food were placed on the table unceremoniously (drop-and-run style) at the edge of the table. We had to rearrange things in order to put them in front of us. And a longer wait between seating/drinks/courses than we're used to. Would still go back for future meals, though. More

Contemporary American | Albany, Upstate New York

One of the best restaurants in the Cap. Region! The food, drinks, service and management were top notch! The icing on the cake was the live jazz trio (I unfortunately forgot to ask for their name). One of the best burgers I've ever had anywhere! The brussel sprouts were over the top too. Make sure you ask for the trifecta: Laurie (waitress), Darius (chef) and Nicky (GM) and I promise you will not be disappointed. Ps. Great happy hour and drink selections too! Oh and dont forget to order the Big Cake (strawberry shortcake) #ToDieFor Hubby and I will be adding The Point to our local dining rotation. Only have one complaint, parking is a bit of an issue. But totally worth driving around for 10 min searching for a space. More

I hadn't been to dp's An American Brasserie in awhile, and wanted something a bit different for a carnivore and a vegan appetite. We're very glad those delicious warm pretzel nuggets with mustard they serve instead of bread are vegetarian! Started with a refreshing grapefruit martini, and a delicious salad of mixed greens, roasted squash and carrots dressed with a pumpkin seed vinaigrette. Yum. The dp Burger, this one with bacon, avocado and spicy mayo was perfectly medium rare, the fries crisp and hot An inspired vegan Coconut Curry tofu scallops with jasmine rice, mango chutney and pickled vegetables was so flavorful and hearty beautifully presented. A final twist on Bananas Foster, with a delectable sauce of coconut milk, dark sugar and exotic liqueurs. And lemongrass ice cream. Everything was first rate, service attentive, relaxed but lively bistro atmosphere. Dp's is a great place to come back to! We'll be back again, soon. More
