A word from DOC Wine Bar - Lombard

Welcome to D.O.C Wine Bar - Lombard. We are elated to serve you as your neighborhood wine bar and bistro. We believe that wine is the "nectar of the gods" and should be enjoyed by all, novices and connoisseurs alike.

While we take what we do seriously, first and foremost, we believe drinking wine should be fun. It is our goal to offer a large variety of wine spanning the globe without any of the factors that may cause intimidation and hinder your enjoyment.

Established in 1963 and implemented in 1966, the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) ("Controlled Denomination of Origin") is Italy's equivalent to France's APPELLATION D'ORIGINE CONTRÔLÉE. DOC's are defined by the geographic area of production for each wine, the varieties that can be used, the minimum alcohol content, the maximum yield, and the specifications for aging.

Diner Reviews
  • "This was my first time at DOC, and my friend and I went to celebrate my birthday. The wine list was enormous, and the server was extremely knowledgeable about what would appeal to our specific tastes. Definitely have to have a return visit!"

  • "We were treated with courtesy promptly. Our waitress was 100%. The food was wonderful inexpensive. But of course the wine was another story, not just overpriced, but beyond that. I did not expect such inexpensive food, though good, it seemed more casual than we expected for my birthday."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The food was good. Had rigatoni, mashed potatoes and bruschetta. However, like some others said on here, the service was awful. Considering there were at least 4 servers and a manager in a place that small, it should have been on point. Won't be going back."

  • "Stopped and had lunch here w/a colleague. Great outdoor seating available and not crowded. The menu was simple, but fairly priced and of excellent quality. Can't wait to come back in the evening some time for the vino."

  • "Delicious choices of meats, cheeses and bruschetta's. You won't leave hungry! The one critique I would have is to offer more accompaniments (like honey, almonds, apricot preserves, etc.) and unlimited bread and crackers and olive oil. These would make a nice addition to the butcher's plate. We felt bad asking for refills on bread and crackers but you really only get three small pieces of baguette for a large platter. Otherwise, amazing choices and fantastic atmosphere. We will be back again! Thanks!"

  • "I was so pleased with DOC Wine Bar that I went back to eat there again two days after my first visit. I thought the atmosphere was very pleasant. The food was so good! The appetizers, entrees, and desserts were excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant. The only con was that the service was a little slow, but I would still go back. Their menu items are just so tasty!"

  • "I am a frequent guest of DOC Wine Bar. I love the food, wine, ambiance, & the fact you can eat outside. It's a great place in it's location because it's different than the rest of the restaurants in the area. But each time, I swear the service gets worse and worse. I'm a relaxed restaurant-visitor. I like to take my time, enjoy being out, etc. But my Mom and I were seated outside and it took 15 min for the waitress to come back and even acknowledge we might want to order a beverage? We did, and another 15-20 min goes by. Finally we ask the hostess for our waitress and she comes out with a different bottle than we ordered. She came back a total of 3x the rest of our 2 hour visit. to order-to bring food-and for the check. Very disappointing."

  • "New to the area my boyfriend and I wanted to have a little date night so we made a reservation at DOC and we were very impressed! Their wine list is amazing, the ambiance is on point, and they have a surprisingly great variety for food. My boyfriend is not as big of a wine enthusiast as I am but he was satisfied with their full bar and beer list. Also, our server was awesome she checked on us often, the good arrived quickly and our water glasses were always full. Definitely check this place out!"

  • "So many yummy things to choose from on the menu, it was a great night out with my close friends, energized, but we were still able to have a conversation."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Nice wine selection! The food was good - not great. We would definitely go back to try other food and wine selections. Really nice and friendly staff."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We brought our 98 year old grandfather to the restaurant and we let them know ahead of time that we would need a handicap accessible table. From the moment we got out of the car the hostess had opened the door for our grand father and our table was ready even though we were early. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable with excellent suggestions and he also overheard that it was one of our party's birthday and completely unprompted brought her a dessert. He went above and beyond in the little details which makes a difference between good service and great service. Definitely recommend."

  • "Absolutely fantastic restaurant - unique, delicious foods, wonderfully attentive staff, incredible wine list."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I was blown away by the attentive service staff - not overpowering. The food was delicious. I had the butcher block of 4 items. Great choices to get a nice eclectic mix for a resonable price. Cheeses, bruchetta choices, and variety of meats. My four were the Duck Breast, Apple/Brie bruschetta, Champaign Cured Salmon w fraiche bruschetta, and Roasted mushroom herb bruschetta. So yummy and a nice wine choice. Great deals too. We went on 1/2 price glass of wine day."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Outstanding menu choices and a great wine list always makes for a fun visit to DOC. The hardest thing to do is deciding what to order. Family, short rib tacos, shaved brussel sprout flatbread and a banana beignet made for a great father's day! The free glass of wine was a nice touch too!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This is on of our favorite spots BUT in a place like this when a menu says it has a bottle of wine for sale and you don't, it's a major disappointment. Neither the server nor the manager could find the bottle and we could overhear the manager say we haven't had that forever, where did they get that from? "From our wine book" "which wine book?" The wine lists should be updated all the time. Our server was great but the Friday night manager never came by to apologize or acknowledge the confusion. "

  • "I went there with my sisters to have a girls night and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. It wasn't crowded so we felt we could sit and chat and enjoy our wine and appetizers. "

  • "The wife and I just wanted to get out for the evening. Have some wine and some food. I wanted a nice place, with good ambience, where we could talk and enjoy ourselves. We both really enjoyed DOC very much. The wine was great and we ordered from the Butchers Plate. Cheese, Bruschetta and meats. You can order each single or a combo of 4 or 8. So we samples 3 cheeses, 3 bruschetta & 2 meats. Everything was fantastic. The roasted mushroom, fresh herb and goat cheese bruschetta was out of this world. Our server was a nice guy, Very helpful & not overbearing. My only “con” for this place was the noise level. It was a little louder than I had hoped for. So I felt like I was talking loud. After some of the people cleared out it was much better. "

  • "I had a group of 7 come out for my birthday. No complaints on the food, but when we first arrived it probably took about 20 minutes from the time I ordered a glass of wine until I actually had it in my hand. That seemed to be the trend of the night, every time we ordered drinks jt took forever. How hard is it to pour a glass of wine?! Our server was also kind of bizarre... I don't know if he didn't want to be working or he just has odd mannerisms but the service from him was not good. He asked my brother how everything was going and when my brother started to speak to ask for the check he walked away. My brother waited 15 minutes then had to get up to find him to wait another 15 min for our check. Great food, poor service. "

  • "The team at DOC was fantastic! We went for our wedding anniversary and were recognized for that as we were seated! My wife ordered an un-oaked Chardonnay, and the manager came over and asked her opion on another un-oaked Chardonnay he was considering serving. The creme brulle was so creamy. My wife would go back just for that!"

  • "We went for Easter brunch was a little disappointed that it wasn't a brunch style but outside of that everything was very good"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "we were pleasantly surprised at this suburban restaurant located in the Yorktown mall. I had the roasted brussel sprouts with bacon and capers and also the bacon wrapped dates. My companion had the build your own charcuterie. We both enjoyed the food. We had planned on splitting a burger as well but had to cancel it as these appetizers were quite filling. Good craft beer. nice ambience, nice wine list. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "This wine bar is an intimate restaurant and at a great location. The service was great as well. I definitely suggest making reservations because the restaurant is popular."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My title says it all! Chorizo stuffed dates wrapped in bacon are so savory and delicious! DOC is a must-go just for these. The butcher's plates are also great for sharing."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The wine list and cheese tray was excellent - definately would go back to sample and drink some hard to find wines."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My Wife & I have dined at DOC dozens of times and usually simply walk in. On this occasion we decided to book a table through Open Table, wish we had not. When initially greeted the Hostess grabbed two menus and headed into the dining room, until I mentioned our Open Table reservation. At this point the Hostess turned back from the dining room and ushered us into the back room. The back room is ok however we were the only people in the entire room while 2/3 of the tables in the dining room remained empty. Very odd experience...felt like Lepers."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "It seems that I always go to DOC for lunch with my girlfriends, rarely for dinner. It's a great place for a weekday lunch with a friend - not crowded and very quiet, allows you to catch up. The servers allow you to set and chat and never rush you to get out. I met a friend this week and I ordered "The Greatest Grilled Cheese" with a side of Tomato Basil soup and my friend had the Margherita Flatbread Pizza and the soup as well. I liked my sandwich, but my friend thought it was a bit bland. The flatbread was tasty, but the toppings left the bottom soggy; I like my flatbread pizzas to be crisp. I'm not a fan of tomato soup, but I let my server talk me into it. I wasn't a fan, much too acidic. I've enjoyed the food much more in past visits."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "The food was very good! Every meal we had was very tasty! The service was a little slower, there was a lot of chit chatting amoung the servers. But once it picked up in the restaurant, it seemed like our server was a little quicker."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I've come here about 4-5 times and every time I'm never disappointed. The staff is always friendly and knowledgable. The food is excellent, the butchers plate feeds 3-4 comfortably and it makes splitting a bottle of wine with girlfriends much more affordable. Between the Lombard and the Chicago location I would pick Lombard because the selection is bigger. The place is overall bigger and the staff at Lombard is muchore attentive and helpful when trying to decide."

  • "The food, wine and service were awesome. For the appetizer, you have got to try the polenta--it was delicious. We had changed our order from the polenta to the fries and the waiter was kind enough to bring out a sample of the polenta for us to try. The garlic aioli that was served with it was so delicious and the waiter was so sweet and got the recipe for me from the kitchen. For lunch, there were so many good choices on the menu. We ordered the burger and it did not disappoint! It was a great experience and we will absolutely go back there."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "If you are looking for something out of the norm, this is it. Great atmosphere. Not absolutely silent but def not noisy. Just right. Great waitstaff- very friendly. Good was great too! I'll be back."

  • "My party of four were first time diners and we found the food to be good, nothing exceptional. The service was a little slow. Had the salmon, crabcakes, and mashed potates not been so, so salty and the chocolate chip cookie been cooked the rating and dining experience would have been so much more. We liked the delectable delfina potatoes, the chicken saltimbocca, moscato wine and the toasted almond cocktails. Willing to try it again with hopes of more balanced seasoning and better service."

  • "D.O.C. Wine Bar was a great choice. Tried the wine flight which was a nice balance. The food was fresh and unique with the pairings they offered. Service was attentive and offered great suggestions. Will definitely try again."

  • "Really enjoyed this place. Nice selections for charcuterie board, nice wine list with interesting wine flights and good cocktails. Food for dinner was good, but slightly overpriced for the overall value in the suburbs. Priced more like a downtown Chicago restaurant, but it's located in the restaurants around a mall instead. That being said, ambience is still quite nice."
