This restaurant specialises in Scandinavian cuisine. I had the arctic char for my main course, which was superb. There are other great things on the menu, but I particularly recommend the golden whitefish roe, served with chopped onions and creme fraiche and the most delicious toast ever. Service is very friendly and efficient. The wine list is also excellent. The... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the fabulous meal at DABA. I had the scallops and my husband had the monk fish dish. Both were excellent. Just the right amount and perfect seasoning. The dessert we shared was ok. Blueberry something. But would highly recommend for dinner!

While I would have hoped that escaping New York meant escaping New York prices, the food at DABA was outstanding.

My wife and I stopped in for drinks and were pleasantly surprised. Quiet place, soft lighting and very relaxing. Met the owner,Dan, and he couldn't have been nicer. We were sorry we had reservations at another restaurant, this place is that inviting. ps WHA and NHL fans will like it here too

It was nice to find a restaurant with Scandinavian cuisine in the Hudson River Valley. The decor is minimalist. The service was efficient but the server appeared rushed. The Aquavit should have been served much colder (the colder the better). We were told that the bartender tried to warm it up as it was "almost frozen". The food was well... More

Our group of 6 triggered an automatic service charge of 20%. That's OK with us since we do tip well; however, there is no notice of this policy on the menu. Some time later, I noticed that the service charge was applied to sales tax in addition to food and beverages. David the owner and chef told me that I... More

Very good food and service. Wait staff is very knowledgeable about menu and wine list. Reasonable pricing. Only criticism is that it's very noisy at peak dinner times. Be sure and try the burger!

We had an excellent dinner at this fine Hudson restaurant. The place was full and we were glad we called to make reservations for a Friday night. I had a herring appetizer that was great. The herring was pickled and servers with crushed crackers and a mustard sauce. A step up from a simple cream sauce. My filet mignon was... More

To be fair, the air conditioning wasn't working on a hot day/evening, so probably not as comfortable as usual...that said, food was very good. To start, my beet salad with cherve and spinach was very good. My husband's carrot coconut soup was good as well -- though the lacing of oil on top took away from the flavor and delicacy... More

A really great kitchen and wonderful ambience sets this restaurant aside. It's warm, a little romantic, and not to be missed.
