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

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, & by the glass wine program, ever-changing, 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.

NOTE: TO MAKE 12/31/21 RESERVATIONS PLEASE CALL 518.436.7747 . Leave a message.

Always delicious food. Save room for dessert. Great cocktails and even the "free spirit" or non-alcoholic drinks are delightful.

As usual fabulous food , perfect cocktails ... surpassed only by the service! Anthony is the best behind the bar....On this visit we had the pleasure of having Ana as our server she was professional, attentive and made our evening perfect ... DP is the place to be in downtown Albany !

Don’t. A hotel restaurant with cold small steaks, without much of an apology or offer to deduct from bill. “Indonesian” noodles = salty soy ramen. There’s better out there.

A great place for a “nicer” meal without getting too fancy. Good mix of casual dining classics and gourmet options. Staff was friendly, service was prompt.

Food was excellent. Dumplings rival best of NYC. Burgers, too. Fries could use an upgrade but I quibble. Service attentive but not overbearing.

My steak had a large pat of herbed butter on top but the steak wasn’t warm enough and it sat frozen until I finally pushed it off. My wife didn’t fare much better finding a hair in her cheeseburger. Otherwise a pleasant experience.

Celebrated birthday in style!!
Waitstaff was so nice, and accommodating with our three year old, even bringing chocolate milk in a plastic cup- something I really did not expect there.
The onion soup is absolutely the best I have ever had, and was served perfectly hot.
Burger of the day was absolutely decadent, and so were the fries.
The signature Bakmi Indonesian noodles are the perfect comfort food.
Room was welcoming, busy enough to feel warm, but not so crowded that we felt rushed.
Can't wait to go back!!

Food and drinks were excellent. Service was excellent. Noise from the bar (including bartender) was excessive; why must they bellow and shout rather than simply talk? We suggest they be reminded this restaurant is not about them.

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.

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.
