Great service and food

The cheese platter was amazing. Our server, Michael, was very attentive and friendly. Great atmosphere and intimacy for a date night.

We visit this restaurant from time to time. Very nice setting for an evening with small group of friends. Very good selection of wine. Menu would benefit from updates from time to time.

Thank you for taking time to review us, we appreciate your feedback. Could you please explain what you mean when you say our "menu would benefit from updates from time to time"? We do change our menu seasonally and offer a weekly fish special that is always changing. Either way, we hope you come back and give us another chance... More

One of my favorite places in downtown Grand Rapids. Higher class but very reasonable. They do have a great bar with excellent martini's, cocktails and local craft beers. From experience - the bar tender knows what he is doing! Bar Divani has very good food as well. A great place to take a date, meet a group of friends or... More

A group of 15 of us from all over the country recent gathered here for an evening of great conversation, delicious food and lots of reminiscing. It was our 25 year class reunion and we couldn't have chosen a better location. Service was attentive yet not overbearing. Local beers were on tap and copper mugs of their Moscow Mule were... More

We visited for small bites. Started with a perfectly mixed Old New Orleans Vieux Carré and a glass of Argento Malbec. Ordered the Lamb Chops and the Mussels. Both perfectly seasoned and cooked! The lamb was juicy and tender and the mussels saw just enough heat to finish. The mussel broth was amazing!

We found this restaurant from Open Table and were eager to check it out!! They open at 4 and did a great happy hour, including $5 house wines and $5 food specials. We sat at the bar high tops, and had a very friendly waitress. We only stayed for a drink each and an appetizer. Let me just say the... More
