Nice waiter! Dead on a Saturday night!

I always loved coming here but apparently they changed management or something. They used to have an extensive wine list thus a wine bar. They only had like 5 red choices for a glass and no one was there at 9:00 on Saturday night. The bartender recommended the most expensive wine on the list per... read more

The first night was wonderful … the second was fantastic! Our stop in Grand Rapids was made more special because of the fantastic cocktails made by Chris. Chris is a master of his craft and a delight to chat with. His explanation of the drinks and ingredients was insightful and entertaining. Our group is usually a challenge, as each person... More

I was part of a very large group which had ordered a plated meals. The meals were very inventive in their description and the service was great, but there was no discount in cost. Further my pasta seemed a bit limp and was clearly kept in a warmer for some time before being served. I was excited about the creative... More

Stopped here merely for a glass of wine with friends. Only one had a small plate and they said it was good. There is a nice menu of small plates to have with some wine or entrees if you're dining. Very nice wine list. Other alcoholic options are available as well. Our group had four different wines and everyone was... More

Hotel staff said visit the bars on Ionia. We were so excited to find the Bar Divani. Owner Molly and her mixologists Rebecca and Courtney were amazing. Loaded bar with lots of options and the food was so good we wanted to order a second meal. Our two favorite drinks were Raspberry Rico Suave and Afternoon Delight. Valet parking is... More

Contemporary style bar with comfortable seating. Quieter and more low key than the bars nearby. Extensive wine/drink menu. We were here on a Saturday from 11p-1a and the place wasn't even half full but we didn't care, we were there to have cocktails & visit. I dug the old school rap/hip hop they had playing. Songs I hadn't heard in... More

We went on a Saturday night before going to a comedy show at the BOB. The menu has changed quite a bit in the last year which is a great thing. Our server was eager to recommend items on the menu. We started with the pork rangoons, goat cheese perogies and coconut prawns. They were all delish. My favorite were... More

It was a delightful experience. Our family had a blast. The food did take a while to come in but it wasn't a boxer because we were chatting and enjoying our selfs. The drinks were very good! As for the food, everyone loved it. I can talk about my Risotto; very, very tasty! The perfect portion. If you love a... More

Bar Divani is sublime. I didn't want to leave. The atmosphere was enticing, the food was even more so, and my waiter was knowledgeable and charming. I had everything - a mixed drink, an appetizer, an entree, a glass of wine, dessert, and, when I decided I wasn't ready to leave yet, a beer. My waiter never steered me wrong,... More
