Boneless Beef Short Rib

Simply delicious. Melt in your mouth short rib, creamy potatoes just decadent from the very beginning to the end. I'm already planning my next visit.

The burger was amazing! All the flavors from the bacon to the sauce worked well together and the Parmesan truffle were the perfect comfort food and side dish. The service was great as well.

Cacio e Pepe Risotto

I can't even describe how wonderfully constructed this dish was when it came to flavor. Not only was the risotto perfectly cooked the rich butteryness from the parmesan cheese and the poached egg kept me coming back for more. I literally could have eaten an entire pot of this risotto! Props to the chef for knocking this one out of the park!

Green Spaghetti

I've had wonderful scallops, the 2 root vegetable salad is great, as is the nutella pie, but by far my favorite item is the green spaghetti.

What an amazing place tucked away in plain sight. Words can't explain how cozy and warm this place is. Food is another level of great. Service is fast knowledgeable and helpful for those who can't make up their mind. If going make sure to have enough time to have a cocktail or two the selection and mixing is very nice(lots of whiskey which suits me well). Bout it I guess. Been there many times and will continue to go.

We went to D.B.A. for our anniversary. Had the lobster crusted filet. It was phenomenal. Then we spend hours at the bar after dinner. Can not wait to return!

*Verlasso Salmon

I ordered this from the Create your own Masterpiece part of the menu. I had this with the horseradish crust and lemon butter accompanied by Brussels Sprouts. The Salmon was cooked perfectly and had a wonderful flavor. This particular fish did not have fishy taste found in our species. The fish is less fatty. The Brussel Sprouts were also cooked perfectly and were a great side.

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)

Center Cut Filet Mignon 10oz.

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.

Beet Salad

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.

I've been here several times and I have never been disappointed! The location, the look, the staff, the food, the drinks... all incredible! I've recommended this place to a couple of friends and they have gone and said it is delicious too. The Charcuterie board is the best I have ever had, salmon is to die for, steaks are perfect... I could go on and on. I will always keep coming back!

Ribeye 16 oz.

I always ordered the roasted duck breast when it was still on the menu, but when I could no longer indulge in that during my most recent visit for my birthday, I decided to experience the ribeye. The enticing, aroma of the ribeye as it arrived at the table enveloped me into a mouth-watering wave of excitement to experience the beautiful presentation of ribeye that was cooked to a perfect medium-rare, well seasoned; bursting with flavor, and "cut with a fork" tender that'll melt in your mouth, with its equally delicious pairing of potatoes au gratin. DBA has always been one of my favorite restaurants, and the wonderful entrée option of the ribeye I had the opportunity to experience is truly a prime example of one of the best steaks I've ever had in my life.

Boneless Beef Short Rib

Have been to dba twice this December. Once with 5 people and once with 6 people. We always start with a craft cocktail (or two) at the Speakeasy (Bryan is excellent) and then head over to dba. Usually some wine, some apps (big fans of the Mussels!) some soup or salad and then an entrée. The three pastas (especially the green) are favorites of all of us as are the Beef Short Rib, the steaks and sometimes even the Dante Inferno flatbread for dinner. Service is always attentive and the manager (Beau) is always helpful too. I like the fact that we can bring in our own wine (for a reasonable corkage fee) and the handing out of guitar picks that lead to a $50 discount. Great place!

Hanger Steak

We went to DBA with some friends that had never been there before and everyone raved about their selections afterwards. My choice, based on the waiter's recommendation, was the hangar steak with potato gratin on the side. Oh my goodness! That was truly a fantastic meal!! I can't wait to go back for more. Found my favorite menu item!!

*Verlasso Salmon

Where Do I Begin....... From Beginning To End Customer Service Was Superb! My Reservation Were In Good Hands With A Courtesy Call. In Celebration Of My 30th Birthday With My Twin Brother Was A Success. This Was His First Visit With His Wife. This Was Also My Guests At My Dinner Party's First Visit As Well. They Loved Everything From How Immaculate The Restaurant Looked, How Well The Decor Looked And How Well Staff Carried Themselves Giving Outstanding Hospitality. This Was My Second Visit Of Choice Because 3Years Ago My Husband Proposed To Me Here Accompanied By The Chef. It Was So Sweet. So I Felt This Was The Perfect Place To Recreate And Create New Memeories. We All Gave Compliments To the Chef! We Also Loved The New Menu Since 2017. We Had The Luxury Of Being Served By Ryan. She Was Amazing, Sweet, & Very Professionally! Our Opening Acts Were Delicious From Traditional Caesar Salad, And Crispy Tempura Shrimp! Our Headliners Included The Vegan Burger & Verlasso Salmon ,Made To Perfection. If Your Looking For Fine Dining, Family Oriented, Place To Celebrate This Is The Perfect Location Hands Down!

Boneless Beef Short Rib

They were very tasty, liked the fact they were off the bone. I did not get any potatoes with dish and a vegetable side would have really rounded the dish out. It was a nice experience and I would certainly go back.

*Calamari and Shrimp

Two of my sisters and I visited dba on Friday before going to the Greystone to see Frankenstein. Our waiter, John, was FABULOUS!! Patient, attentive and just all around great! The food was to die for! We decided to do various appetizers and my sisters also did the three pasta tasting. The calamari and shrimp was so good, we ordered a second one before we finished the first. The tuna tartare was beyond delish. And, the mussels were gone in a heartbeat! DBA is just wonderful. We will be back when we come back in town in late Jan/early Feb.

*Hawaiian Tuna Tartare

My husband and I ate at the Chef's table on 10/11 in celebration of his birthday. We did the 5 course chef's menu with wine pairing. It was divine. The staff and service was exceptional and the menu paired with wines was out of this world. We will definitely be back to the restaurant in the future. Thank you for a lovely evening and delightful meal

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.

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!
