Do not miss their Restaurant Week experience. For that matter, go any time! We went early so we could take advantage of the great happy hour drink specials. Their classic cocktails are all $5 from 4-6 pm. Hubby had a Sazerac and a Manhattan, while I had the Pimm's Cup. We both thought they were excellent. The list is long,... More

We enjoyed the food and surroundings at this small plate restaurant. Great cocktails and wine list. Best lamb chops ever!

We enjoy going to Bar Divani - the food is inventive and delicious! The drinks are also very good! We especially enjoy the atmosphere - it's romantic and chic, but with relaxing vibe. The service has always been great and attentive.

We had a nice dinner here - good value for creative contemporary food. The salads were great and inexpensive, Mussels were huge and scallops grilled just right. Service was right on - but was not a busy evening. Prices very reasonable for service and food quality.

Made reservations for a quick dinner before the Garth Brooks concert. They respected our timeline, bringing all meals out on time and even reminded us when our deadline drew near. Two orders of spareribs were devoured as were the crab cakes and charcuterie. Great wine selection as well. Will return whether on a tight time-frame or not. A+ service too... More

Visited two years ago and was very impressed with menu and atmosphere. This visit was a bit different. We were the only two people in the place at 6pm - uncomfortable. Ordered some small plates that were OK but not as we remembered. Cocktails were the highlite as great time was taken to make and present them (there was no... More

We’ve been going to Bar Divani since it opened. It’s gone through some good and bad phases over the past 10+ years. We had stopped going in recent years (food had gone downhill quite a bit). It’s been under new ownership for over a year now. Changes aren’t physically visible – which is nice, because the décor is unique, comfortable,... More

We had heard good things from others especially about wine selections. We had dinner on a week night with a fine bottle of wine. If you live lobster, their bisque is to die for. Comfortable setting, nicely varied menu, friendly knowledgeable staff. And walking distance from all hotels in downtown. Highly recommend.

I ate at Bar Davani for a business trip with some coworkers. The servers are very knowledgeable, personable, and paid extreme attention to detail. My coworker recommends the Korean Ribs, while I had the spinach salad with a vinaigrette and shrimp and grits. Highly encourage you to eat here when you can.

I love this place, the food is delicious. I am typically someone who doesn't like to try different types of foods. I absolutely love their steak, the sauce is different and tasty.
