Amazing meal/wonderful atmosphere!
We went for Valentine's Day and had an absolutely wonderful meal! I would absolutely recommend D.O.C., and have. However, we both agreed that it was a little pricier than we had anticipated. When Capital Grill, Gibson's, Harry Caray's and other great places are a stones throw away, D.O.C. might not make the short list of places to visit when I can get the same if not more at the others for the same price.

If you're looking for Europe-inspir
If you're looking for Europe-inspired food at reasonable prices, this is the place to go. The ingredients are fresh and unique and tasty. Have been numerous times and will continue to go back. Whether it's for a sandwich, a chicken or fish entree, a big salad, flatbread, cheese, desserts...the food is delicious and worth the calories of every bite!

I've always enjoyed a great glass of wine here. They have a great variety and have a staff that is very knowledgeable. Whether you want a Pinot grigio or merlot they have plenty of options that fit what you're looking for. If you're feeling adventurous they can also recommend something you would never have thought of for yourself that's off the beaten path but that you'll leave talking about.
I love the charcuterie they have fun and interesting selections. And the bread sticks and homemade jams are equally as delicious.
Overall a great place to have a light dinner and great wine. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic date!

Great Service and Food
Good service isn't easy to find and the waitress (Morgan) we had was GREAT! She was very helpful when we informed her of what kind of wine each person liked and brought us each a glass based on our preference. Wine was delicious, I did the Peach and Apricot Wine flight and we ended up getting a bottle of Malbec that the waitress had suggested. Food was great too, I had the Brussel Sprout flat bread, few at the table had the mini sliders, another had the braised short rib tacos and all of us truly enjoyed our food! Prices are a little expensive but well worth it for the food and service we got!

Wine for experts, and dummies!
I love that they have half priced wine flights on Sunday, and also that they make their wine flights easy to understand and pair. Their food is excellent, and quite underrated. I've never disliked anything I've had.

Best Fish Tacos.....Ever
I love D.O.C. My favorite dish is with the fish tacos. Their fish tacos are the best I've ever eaten, by a landslide. Nothing else comes close. It's the sauce, the fresh, well-seasoned tilapia, and the shredded vegetables that create this divine meal. I've also tasted the burger (with the most outstanding grilled onions ever), the salmon cooked on a cedar plank, the varied bruschetta, and cheeses. Everything is wonderful. Plus, the wine selection is awesome. The ambience is warm, romantic, and fun. There's a fireplace in the party room and outdoor seating for those warm summer days. And the service is excellent. You really can't go wrong here.

A great, private dining spot
I loved D.O.C wine bar. I've been twice, once for a weekday brunch and once for dinner. The prices are a bit high but the food is excellent. I suggest getting one of the platters from the back of the menu. They have a great variety and it's all delicious in my experience. They also have a lovely selection of wines, I greatly enjoyed the Malbec. I would definitely recommend them and intend to return.

Creative, fun food
Loved the chorizo-stuffed dates and the multiple types of bruschetta! Looking forward to a return visit.

A Great Wine Bar
My Wife and I LOVE this Bar. The whole crew is fantastic . The Host , The mannager , The Bartender ( Stacey ) , they all treat us great. We love the industry night on Modays .

Excellent food and service. The wine is delicious and so is the food. I have visited in the evening and afternoon. The afternoon was good for a family celebration and the evening for a romantic night out.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Comfortable and tasty....
Doc's is a good choice for dinner, or just drinks any night of the week. We enjoy eating outside, and the service is always good!
However, last time we ate there I was shocked to see that the glass of Chardonnay that I had was $16 per glass. To me that is unreasonable based on the kind of restaurant it is. I was recently at the Trump Tower and my glass of Chardonnay was less! So, check the prices before you order a glass of wine.

Sorry it Took So Long to Return
We had eaten here once before, remembered it being very good, but just never made it back. Big regrets. Staff was outstanding & extremely friendly - but perhaps a tad stretched. My wife thought her pasta dish may have been one of the best she'd ever had, and I thought the short rib tacos were exceptional. Won't be as long before we return.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My cup of tea. Or glass of wine?
I really enjoyed this place. The food was amazing and I loved the whole ambiance of the place. The service could have been a little better but otherwise I was really happy with my experience here and would definitely come back.

Love the 1/2 price bottles on Mon.!
I have a tendency to forget about DOC Wine Bar but used Open Table to find a reservation for a gathering spot for 3 friends who haven't seen each other in awhile - DOC Wine Bar was the perfect spot. We enjoyed the wonderful selection of 1/2 price wines, a Butcher's Board, burger and panini and everything was very good - especially the three desserts we left room for! Paul our server was excellent too. We'll remember to come back often and sit on the patio!

The service was great! Server was very accommodating! Wine list was extensive and the food was delicious!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to go!! Get some wine and the butchers block of bruschetta, meats and cheeses!!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The butcher block is our favorite
The butcher block is our favorite paired with a different flight of wine for every attendee and their tastes. Mix and match!! My favorite on the menu is the Ahi Tuna Sliders, it has a Korean/Asian flair to it.

Comfortable spot with good food
I had been to the restaurant before, but my husband hadn't. I was happy that he enjoyed it so much. Our server, Paul, was great and gave us good suggestions. The wine we chose wasn't available, but he offered a great substitution. We had the butcher's plate with 8 choices of various salamis and cheeses and everything was very tasty. There was a wide selection to choose from. The restaurant is decorated with comfortable sophistication and makes for a nice setting. Plenty of outdoor seating for a lovely evening.

Nice place to go
If your looking for a place with good food and a quiet atmosphere, this is the place. Nice bar, nice out door seating area, good wine list. All the food I have had was great. Especially the banana dessert! It's a must try!

Go to Place!
DOC Wine bar is my go to place for a nice girlfriend lunch. I love the soup and salad combos. Outdoor seating is great but also love the quiet, intimacy of the indoors. Also, l attended a private party in the backroom, which i did not know existed. Loved the food selections and service at the party. Great place to host a cocktail party.

Food and service are outstanding! The vanilla chocolate chip cookie is to die for!

Different from the usual
A nice place that is different from the usual restaurant fare. Upscale place for light snack or lunch. A nice wine list to choose from.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Finally - good wine & cheese!
Love, love, love this place! I am thrilled that I can go to a place that has a good wine selection and that I can order a variety of meats and cheeses. They have a triple cream brie, need I say more??
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful, but expensive...
We went with one wine drinker (two glasses + one port) and had a marvelous meal + appetizers + Salmon/cheese + nicely done dessert, but paid heavy duty ($125 + tip). An absolutely wonderful meal, but just be prepared to shell it out...

Great atmosphere and wine.
I went to the Doc Wine Bar for the first time this past Friday. I was very pleasantly surprised with the decor and comfort of the booths. The lighting was low which is relaxing and the beautiful wood floors and wood bar added more to the ambience. The wine list is very extensive, more then I have seen in most wine bars which was great for any palette. I only can comment negatively on the food. Don't order the bruscetta.
Excluding the food, this is a great place to come for wine and conversation.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was good.
The $6 glasses of wine was a bonus. And everyone's lunch was delicious.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great but depends what you order
Great ambience and drinks but I was not a huge fan of what I ordered (risotto). My fiance got the curry, though, and he really liked it. My sister and brother-in-law went and ordered a couple other items and really liked it, so it depends what you order. I'm vegetarian so I bet the fish and meat are probably good.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first time at DOC Wine Bar and we loved it!! The food was excellent - we ordered a few apps and shared and one was better than the next from the "Filet Trio" to the Flatbreads - Apple and Brie!! Highly recommend!!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good wine and food
I was very surprised and overly pleased at how good the food and wine was. I've been to wine bars that use wine more as a "theme" than a true focus, which was not the case here. Additionally, the food was very good and surpassed my expectations. We had the roasted brussel sprouts and cauliflower app, filet and ahi sliders, and the skillet cookie for dessert. All were delicious and comparable to a nice restaurant in the city. I would absolutely go back for both the food and wine.
The atmosphere was nice with a darker, wine bar feel, but the booths and tables made it a bit less "lounge-like" and more like a restaurant. Service was good.

Great pre-movie spot
DOC is one of our favorite spots for a few glasses of wine and charcuterie before the AMC Premium theatre at Yorktown. They have a large wine selection, cheeses, meats, and appetizers which we enjoy for an early dinner.
