“Don't pass up this place!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

We went to this restaurant to have dinner with a couple of friends who recommended it to us. Long story made short, we have never been more impressed with a restaurant than this one! Absolutely amazing! The service was spot on perfect, the appetizer (cheese plate) was outstanding. Try the short ribs...unbelievable! I had the scallops....wow! There is so much more I can say about this place....but, you should check it out for yourself! This is one of the very BEST restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale area, and we have tried many. It is our new favorite! Go, Go, Go!

“Great Great and more Great!”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

From greeting to appetizer to recommendation for bottle of wine to main dish to desert…we had such a great time and the food was great. We can't wait to try the next dish(es) when we return.
Ok yes average decor but so great for friends to have a great time and meal. You will really enjoy an evening here.

“Best Hidden Gem in Fort Lauderdale”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

This is a local restaurant in a strip mall in Fort Lauderdale. It may not be on Las Olas Boulevard, but your taste buds will be very pleased. Everything here is made from scratch!! The flavors are succulent! I had the pan seared scallops and the white truffle risotto appetizers. Excellent. They have wonderful servers at DBA. They know their wine and beer. You will be very pleased if you dine at DBA. Eat here, then you can walk on Las Olas after dinner!!

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

We had 2 apps to start with, chicken liver with caramelized onions on toast, and spicy calamari. Both were well prepared and arrived fairly quickly. Tastes were balanced and on point.
Fried oyster salad was a very good salad. Oysters were over-breaded. Bacon dressing was excellent. Greens were dressed, not flooded.
2 entrees were braised short ribs and game hen. Both really nicely done. Couldn't finish either after all of that. Decent wine selection, that seems to change often. Prices were maybe a bit high, but this is south Florida.....

“up and coming ! future looks good”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

went here with family , nice looking in side , staff very friendly, we would go again, had a chance to meet the owner came over and introduced himself to us and he was very nice and gave us the history of the restaurant and what he is trying to do, our food came out in a good time and was served hot, had the 'duck' was really good, everyone had a good meal, everyone was happy we all had dessert , would go back again, our only disapointment was we missed the 'cheeseburger special night by a few min's , will get there on time next time, a cool little place to go to with family or friends visiting from out of town.
