“Great wine, great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

While walking through Dijon's old city center, we chose to have lunch at Dr. Wine because of its exterior charm and sophistication. We were greeted by a friendly and professional staff, and were seated in a beautiful and quiet terrace in the rear. The establishment offers an impressive array of some of France's best wines, with a particular accent on regional bottles. These bottles can also be purchased at the nearby wine shop, which was able to ship some bottles back home tax free for us! We loved this place so much that we decided to come back two days later, this time, in the evening. We ate delicious tapas which were complimented with nice Chablis Domaine Picq recommended by the sommelier. Dr. Wine is definitely an address we would recommend, be it for a nice lunch, or memorable evening!

“Unacceptable standard of service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Poor service left us with a very disappointing visit to Dr Wine. We opted for the two course lunch menu. We waited 30 mins for our starter to arrive and a further 45 mins for our main course.We ordered a wine glass refill which arrived 30 mins later.Our waiter ignored us,sending a more junior member of staff to placate us.In the end we had to rush our main course to make our TGV two hours after arriving at Dr Wine. When our waiter finally reappeared we stated our dissatisfaction to which he replied that a French family with children (who arrived after us and left before us) needed to be served expediently ....leaving us in no doubt as to who were the preferential clients.

DrWineDijon, Gérant at Dr Wine, responded to this review, September 28, 2013
This mealtime was completely booked and our staff was trying to take care of every customer. Given that, the management decided to hire additional waiters. To provide the best possible service, our manager took orders while waiters continued the service. We ask our guests to let us know if they are to leave early."

This is what we were looking for in a wine bar. Great wine list, superb charcuterie plates, attentive service, warm decor, first class.

“Really nice experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We stopped by Dr. Wine because of the great winemakers names it had on its list. Food is fresh, simple, smart and served in good quantities. I had a healthy greens salad with duck magret and then a rayfish wing in a white sauce. But don't be mistaken : Dr. Wine is mainly a wine bar and, as such, the wine is the reason you come here.
The wine by the glass selection is correct (6 references in white/6 in red/3 in sweet), with a welcomed emphasis on Burgundy, and friendly prices.
I would go there again while visiting the historic center in Dijon.
