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

We went to Bar Divnai because it was recommended by a close friend who had also recently been to Grand Rapids. We were seated promptly against the backdrop of a beautiful interior and relaxing blues-style music that gave the slightest impression of a time travel trip. Our staff member was very knowledgeable in helping us pick refreshments to sip on... More

I've been a Bar Divani fan for years and was looking forward to taking out-of-town Artprize guests this weekend. Was surprised to see a greatly reduced wine list and menu. Appetizer and dessert were good but we were served lukewarm champagne and terribly salty chicken with polenta entrée that was barely a cut above chicken tenders. When we complained to... More

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.
