Great customer service. Food at best average. Cheese selection was very limited with lots of blue varieties. Excellent wine selection.

Divino's open kitchen hums with activity preparing full flavour dishes in a warm atmosphere. The low lighting, long brick wall and art (including a striking blue glass ceiling light reminiscent of a planet) works to create a really nice setting. Our group of four was happy with our table in the back of the restaurant. The server was well informed... More

Had a nice late dinner here after an event at nearby Jack SInger Hall. Unlike some other nearby dining choices, Divino's is open on Mondays, and their dinner service runs a little later into the evening. Space is very attractive, long, brickwork, open kitchen. It was pretty quiet with only a few tables at 9:30 pm. We found our initial... More

We stopped in on NYE for some wine and cheese. Also had the beef tartar and olives. We got a lot for the price. The wine selection was definitely on the pricey side, but the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Pet peeve though is that they bring you water without asking and then charge you for it.

We went back later that evening and had a really good meal with service to match. i really wanted to... More

I can only recommend this restaurant to those nostalgic of old France and Europe in general. The food is outstanding and is a delight for the senses. A nice bottle of Chateau-Neuf-du-Pape and platter of cheese will finish off to transport you to heaven... Amazing service and management! Top notch!!!

Took a client here from out of town and the food and service was great! We shared the pasta special and the burger and fries. Probably the best burger I have ever had! My client was very impressed! Thanks and I will be back!
