Cooked perfectly. The lobster melted in my mouth. And my steak was tender and seasoned so well. Drinks are amazing and inventive. Me and my wife love the atmosphere and make it our date night go to
Amazing, goes great with the beet salad
I have a lot of food restrictions and the service was fantastic; the food and cocktails were even better. They have a patio option and a beautiful view of the valley even from inside. I'll definitely be back! (Visited 7pm 8/8/19)
My husband and I can't stop talking about how amazing the filet at DBA is. It was so well seasoned, cooked to perfection, and the best filet I've ever had. Period. We also had the Tempura Shrimp as a starter, which was amazing as well. So crispy without being overdone and the Dante Dum Yum sauce was stellar. We can't wait to come back!
My mother and I sat at the bar and enjoyed The charcuterie plate and the Dante's Inferno flatbread. We were there to celebrate her birthday. I have dined at DBA before and every time, everything is spot on. Between the service, wine, and food, DBA is one of my favorite restaurants.
Grilled Lamb Tenderloins
I was nervous at first to try the lamb as part of our chef testing menu, but wow am I glad I did. It was so tender and juicy, and I would definitely get it again.
This was so yummy. The goat cheese, beets, nuts, and quinoa were a perfect blend and made for a great start to our 5-course chef tasting.
As a huge scallop fan, I must say that this dish did much more than satisfy. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the accompaniments made this dish feel grounded and balanced.
Chef Nick was masterful in pulling off perfectly cooked scallops with a dynamic pairing of strawberries prepared two different ways. A gentle touch of cardamom pulled all the flavors together. We did the 5 course Chef's table (highly recommended) and this was a standout along with stellar dishes of tuna, steak, pasta. A dinner that will make you want to be a weekly patron. And Sebastian is waiter of the year.
OMG this was as good a pasta dish as you can get. There was only one place I used to go for Carbonara....not anymore. DBA's linguini alla carbonara is so much better!!! Creamy, rich and fresh. Magnifico!
*Goat Cheese Cavatelli
As a vegetarian, I am used to only having one mediocre option at most restaurants. Not the case here! This pasta dish was so good that I ate the whole thing. I highly recommend this dish to all!
Just one word: EXCELLENT!
*Goat Cheese Cavatelli
I had the 3 tastes of pasta - my favorite was the goat cheese cavatelli! They were all wonderful. Can't wait to go back.
The crispy Brussels Sprouts were terrific! I also had the trio pasta sampler and it was amazing. I can't choose a favorite, they were all so tasty!
Scallops are one of my favorite dishes to order out and this one was certainly at the top of my list! The scallops had a perfect golden crust while remaining silken on the inside. They were the furthest thing from rubbery (an all too common circumstance at other restaurants). I'm not normally the biggest fan of fennel but the broth was incredible. I would absolutely recommend this dish to ANYONE!
My husband and I experienced the chef's table 7 course tasting menu for our birthdays. It was fun to sit in the kitchen and watch the action and chat with the chef and others. Our server, Cody, was very attentive and had a good knowledge of the wines he was pouring with each course. The food was spectacular and very ample portions. We boxed a couple up to take home after tasting them because we were getting really full and I lamented that take home never tasted as good as when it was served fresh. How wrong I was! The leftovers were equally delicious. We had never had an experience like this before and would recommend it highly.
We were lucky enough to sit at the chef's table on a Saturday night. Holy cow is this an amazing and fun dinner experience. Not only is the food incredible, it is also basically a mesmerizing show that accompanies a memorable dinner with friends. This is a one of a kind dinner experience you will not soon to forget. For dessert, we were blown away with the Nutella pie. All of the courses were amazing but the dessert left me wanting to come back soon!
My husband and I visited for dinner last night and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The atmosphere was quiet and intimate, perfect for a date night. Our waiter was attentive and bonded with my husband over their shared alma mater. Food was excellent of course. Can't wait to be back.
Had an amazing time on a date with my wife enjoying the Chef table. It had such a great variety of items and left us wanting more and more. The food was tasteful and beautiful and the service was awesome. We will definitely be coming back again and again.
This is hands down the best burger I've ever tasted! Plus, can substitute the tots for another side (the asparagus was perfectly cooked). Never thought of this place a burger spot, but will be my new go to!
This was the perfect way to end our chef tasting. The nutella cream in the middle of the pie was so delicious, and the caramel underneath was so good to dip in. Thank you for an amazing meal we will be thinking about for a long time! Can't wait to come back, as always!
This was delicious! The scallops and potato combo was great, but the added flavor of the strawberries really made the dish. Yum!
*Goat Cheese Cavatelli
OMG... this was amazing! The cavatelli were cooked perfectly, the creamy goat cheese sauce was so good, and the tomatoes helped to cut some of the richness of the dish. Would definitely get this again! and again, and again, and again!
I absolutely loved creating my own take on this hanger steak. The Dante's Dum Yum was an amazing pairing and it seems that you cannot go wrong with any of the side options.
Just recently visited DBA for an employee get together. The roasted chicken was superb! Not to mention the fantastic service as well. I had an Old Fashioned cocktail and very much enjoyed every sip. Shout out to Sebastian our bartender!
Excellent and good service
For Christmas 2017, my husband and I received a gift certificate for DBA. We placed it in a drawer to keep it "safe" but mistakenly forgot that we had it. Once discovered, I realized that it had expired one year from the date of purchase and was disappointed that we would not be able to enjoy this gift. I called DBA and explained our situation to a very pleasant lady named Shannon, who in turn spoke with management. They gave her the "thumbs up" to redeem it, so we promptly made a 6:30 reservation for that evening! This was our first visit to DBA and we decided to dine inside rather than on the patio. Our server, Sarah, seated us at a window table at the back of the restaurant where we had a lovely view and received first-rate service. We inquired about several items on the menu and Sarah "educated" us on the selections. After careful consideration, I selected the Pappardelle Bolognese - the smaller TASTE portion. Sarah informed us that even though this was a "small" dish of pasta, it was a hearty serving and she was correct! The lengthy, broad noodles are homemade and the sauce has a generous amount of meat. It is served in a bowl which is placed on a plate. I emptied the bowl onto the plate and cut the pasta with a knife and fork for easier (and less messy) consumption! At Sarah's recommendation, my husband ordered the Grilled Lamb Tenderloin with Potato Strudel and he was not disappointed (he even commented on the presentation of the food on the plate)! She also mentioned that he could order a half-size portion of salad instead of a full one and the smaller size Traditional Caesar was plenty. We were not sure what Nutella pie is, but decided to share a piece and discovered that is was AMAZING! It is a fun, cold pie with chocolatey crust and filling and is topped with whipped cream. There is caramel and a hint of sea salt somewhere within the pie which compliments the already great taste! Due to Shannon's politeness on the phone, Sarah's kind and attentive service and your superb kitchen staff, my husband and I had an outstanding encounter at your restaurant! We are looking forward to our next visit and have sent your online link to several colleagues and family members. Thank you from both of us, Cheryl and Dave
Good lord! This was the single biggest steak I've seen in my life. Bring your appetite. It was excellently prepared - medium rare was actually (drumroll) medium rare! A lot of places can't seem to get that right, but DBA does. Paired it with some potatoes and heirloom carrots and. Couple bottles of red wine. Service was great as well. Excellent!
My husband and I love DBA. It is our regular date night spot. Almost 6 months ago we went and tried the 3 cheese polenta appetizer and to this day, it remains the best appetizer I've ever had. I still think about it when we go out to eat and consider getting an app. Nothing has compared. In fact, I can say that about most of the items we have tried from the menu.
Absolutely superb. The salmon was prepared perfectly and had the most amazing flavour. I will return and am excited!
The Green Spaghetti is a simple concept with the touch of a professional. The noodles are cooked to perfection, and dressed in a garlic sauce that is flavorful without being overpowering. The shrimp was absolutely delicious (and I don't even like shrimp), and contrasts the green color of the pasta in a very pleasing way. If you're one to stick to classics, but want something a bit new, definitely go for the Green Spaghetti!
The Nutella pie was excellent as with all the food, my husband loved his green pasta. Nina was an excellent waitress and really made our birthday night special and gave my father a to go coffee. She added to the overall excellent dining experience!
Crispy Fried Calamari
Stopped in after a concert for the late night venue, and were met with a welcoming staff that was warm, funny, and engaging. Made for an exceptional ending to a good night. The fried Calamari was especially delicious.
