I like Bar Divani. The food is really good every time I've been. Staff is polite. The only thing that brings it down a bit for me is that it gets very loud in there to the point where it's difficult to have conversation. I was here for my husband's birthday with his mother and step-father. They enjoyed it as... More

Bar Divani is now being operated by Louis and Molly of Louis Benton fame. They have eliminated the pesky tablet menus and gone back to good old hard copy, a definite plus. The wine list is still good, although not always up to date. I haven't eaten there since the new menu, but look forward to doing so, as they... More

Went here with a group of friends. They have a nice venue and an excellent wine and whiskey offering. The food is a little on the pricey side but not anymore than you would expect to pay at a classier place. The food was good and I enjoyed it but I was distracted by the very slow service. Granted some... More

Haven't been in years. Saturday night. Dreadful and dreadfully loud music was broadcast on the sidewalk. We looked in and saw dirty front windows. Because of our last experience we decided to check it out anyway. Music inside was much much better. Very few people. Service was uninspired. Sorry they had to take their attention off sports that night. Had... More

We have wanted to go here for some time but just never made it. We will definitely be back. The restaurant was very comfortable, the server was great. She knew the menu and was able to make some wonderful suggestions. The wine list was very good and most importantly the food was outstanding. All this made the evening great. In... More

Probably as hipster as Grand Rapids (G-Rap) gets. Cool lounge/bar with high tops, nice lighting, cool floor design, great wine list with knowledgable staff. Perfect for after dinner drinks.

First of all, pretty good happy hour prices. The downside of this is that it doesn't cover the "classic cocktails" such as a good ol' martini but if one is into their interesting list of posh cocktails happy hour is definitely the time to go. The food was very good. I've only had the starters (small plates) but I was... More

We were very skeptical walking into Bar Divani. We were meeting friends who have been to Bar Divani for YEARS but we saw the Yelp reviews and TripAdvisor reviews and it was very polarized so we prepared for the worst. But we were pleasantly surprised! Yes, it's very ritzy that they have iPads as menus, the whole place is very... More

because they had plastic hanging from the ceiling in front of the door. We thought maybe they were remodeling. Wrong. That was to keep the wind out as their door is a single door and it can be quite cold if sitting near the door. I recommend sitting at the bar or the other room. The front door can be... More

I called ahead about food allergies and spoke with a knowledgeable woman about what was in the food. My boyfriend and I went there for happy hour which is 25% off everything, a great deal! My expensive glass of wine was not good, the cheapest one on the menu was better. We asked again what I could have and were... More
