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.

DP's never disappoints. We had a great salad with salmon and the short ribs with rice. Great wine list, staff is terrific. We need to support our local restaurants during the pandemic. We'll be back soon.

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.

The food, service and ambiance was amazing. They were very accommodating due to unforeseen circumstances and us being unable to arrive at our original reservation time. Our server was very personable and went above and beyond to make sure our experience was amazing.

Truly felt like family when I went here for my anniversary dinner. The entire staff was thoughtful and accommodating the entire time. To say the food was amazing would be an understatement. 10/10.

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!

Arrived and seated immediately, outdoors. Staff was excellent, food was perfect. Fish tacos were crunchy on the outside and cooked perfectly. Bucatini was al dente and the shrimp were outstanding. Finally felt “normal”while dining! Thanks all!

The wait staff is competent and friendly. The food was amazing. We had the dumplings, lamb sliders, fried chicken sandwich, french onion soup, brussel sprouts, and duck fat fries. The sliders were my clear favorite, but all the food was amazing. Easily the best restaurants (DPs/Yonos) in the capital district.

The manager and staff went above and beyond for our friends special day. We were able to work with Donna to build a customized menu. This is my fourth occasion I have planned with them and I cannot express how much they make the experience special and memorable. Thank you and your staff so much again.

In the midst of Covid-19, DP's was just what we needed. A worry free night out. Tables were spaced, masks were worn, all rules were followed yet it did not interfere with enjoying our evening. Food was exceptional as usual. I recommend a night out at DP/Yonos.

The food was phenomenal. Clearly, the chef/owner takes great pride in providing original, thoughtful and delicious food that’s not your typical “comfort food” but lighter and with great refreshing flavors. I can’t wait to go back. I had the Indonesian noodles my wife had the Pasta Ryleigh. We both were not willing to share- haha. Don’t tell your friends because I want to be able to book a table going forward.

dp An American Brasserie is the perfect happy hour or dining experience. My husband and I have been going to dps for nearly ten years, and each time is as perfect as the last. Be prepared for exceptional service, friendly and knowledgeable servers, elegant cocktails, an outstanding beer and wine list, lovingly prepared plates, and attention to the tiniest detail. dps is always a prime choice - no matter what the occasion. I would highly recommend a visit - the sooner, the better!

The food is always outstanding and this time was no exception. We were celebrating a graduation and had an outstanding bottle of wine - recommended by Nic, himself.
The octopus appetizer was delicious an my fish was done to perfection. Our other meals, a noodle dish and a pasta were also quite good and even delicious the day after.
dp's has done a wonderful job of dealing with re-opening and I didn't feel crowded or rushed and our server, Giuliana, was not only very attentive, but knowledgeable of the menu.
I've always loved dp's and this time was no exception.
