    The food and drinks were amazing! Service not so much. The host was super welcoming, funny and laid back, but I felt like our server just hated us from the start. No introduction, didn’t check in on us once, not one smile. Our whole table has been servers before and we know there are off days, but seriously just call out if you’re going to make your tables feel like a nuisance. It was also my birthday which was noted in the reservation. I’m not expecting free stuff by any means, but maybe a “happy birthday” or at the very least be nice to me. I would go back and give this place another shot, but definitely a pretentious vibe.

    The restaurant in the ambience were absolutely amazing! I will note that it is very hard to find the location. It’s in between seventh Street and sixth Street on Lenora Avenue downtown. It’s in between two freaking glass gnomes that would’ve been a huge help finding it so I didn’t scooter around the block five times and finally called the staff to figure out where the hell was.

    The staff were rude and unfriendly most of the time. We went there to celebrate a birthday and requested to store a cake and they agreed, however when we asked for it to be brought out it was already cut and ruined with no explanation or apology of what happened.

    Manager was very rude to us for having a candy bar open in the bar. Not sure how you can be in the service industry and make the decision to treat customers the way he did over a candy bar?

    The space, feel, marketing via brilliant menu are all better than the food presented. It's not that the food is bad, it's good, however it falls flat relative to the intriguing menu description.

    My husband and I had a nice date night here. The drinks were very good, a little spendy but you get what you pay for. We shared the focaccia as a small bite, and it was a decent size and very good. We each got two drinks, and the ambiance was very moody and classy. Would recommend.

    During my recent visit to the Deep Dive Bar, I found myself enveloped in an ambiance that promised a luxurious escape, complemented by service that went above and beyond. A special shoutout to Jacob, whose attentiveness and professionalism made our evening significantly more enjoyable. The decor, akin to a meticulously curated museum exhibit, provided a feast for the eyes and elevated the overall experience. However, it's with a constructive spirit that I address certain elements that seemed to misalign with the bar's upscale aspirations. The culinary choices, specifically the pairing of caviar with overly salty chips, felt like a misstep. Such a combination not only overshadowed the delicate flavor of the caviar but also seemed at odds with the sophistication the bar aims to project. This choice, perhaps inadvertently, detracted from the elegance that Deep Dive Bar seeks to embody. The attire of the patrons also caught my attention. Despite the website's recommendation for smart casual dress, a noticeable number wore jeans and tennis shoes, suggesting a dissonance between the establishment's expectations and the guests' interpretations. This disparity, in a way, dilutes the upscale experience the bar strives to offer. The juxtaposition of the exceptional service and stunning decor against the less congruent elements of food pairing and guest attire creates a complex picture. It's a reminder of the delicate balance required to craft an experience that resonates with elegance and sophistication throughout. My hope is that Deep Dive Bar takes these reflections as opportunities to refine and align all aspects of their offering more closely with the high standards they clearly aspire to and are capable of achieving. This place has the potential to be not just a venue but a complete, harmonious experience, where every detail complements the next, creating an unforgettable visit.

    Great little spot with a swanky and intimate atmosphere. Went because of the location and the comparatively large non-alcoholic drink menu. Some delicious NA drinks, a sampling of their tasting menu and small plates gave us a nice variety of food items to share, and a nicely paced experience. Food was delicious, portioned well for sharing between 2, and had interesting flavor profiles. Playlist was throwback hip-hop which fit the vibe was well curated. We enjoyed it!

    I would recommend Deep Dive for cocktails; The ambiance, mood, and aesthetic were super moody and vibey, and the server was extremely knowledgeable about cocktail recommendations and wine pairings. We attended for Valentine's Day and did their coursed meal - Unfortunately, food service was extremely slow and when it was delivered/bussed, was super rushed. The food was also subpar for the price and portions were small. I think the restaurant is set up to cater well for after-work cocktails (obviously, given the location). Maybe just get dinner after elsewhere!

    I have loved my visits to Deep Dive, but this time might be my last. We were told upon arrival that we had the table for 2 hours. That's totally reasonable...but at 1.5 hours we were given the check, and at 10 minutes till the cutoff, we were aggressively told we must leave. This was a Tuesday. It was moderately busy. Here is my advice, don't tell us the table is ours for 2 hours - say it was ours for 1.5 hours, give us our check then, and then we would feel like we got a few extra minutes that would have still been within your time restriction. Also, more protein friendly vegetarian options would have been nice - like Deviled eggs without anchovies, edamame. Crackers, bread, and cheesecake aren't conducive to an elevated vegetarian diet.

    Abysmal service. Arrived on time with a reservation, celebrating my birthday. Hostess quickly got us seated. We then waited 15 minutes before our waiter/bartender acknowledged us. We ordered and then and had to wait around 10 minutes, which actually isn’t unreasonable for fancy craft cocktails. However, our waiter checked on us soon after getting our drinks, not to be seen again. A different waiter finally came after about 20 minutes and we asked for the check. Another 15 minutes waiting for someone to close us out, the hostess finally did because the reservations were getting backed up. Felt like she was the only one working!

    Went here for a date night and was greeted by an unattentive host, sat at the bar (after booking a table) and the bartender was less than willing to have a conversation. Drinks themselves were less than fine, quite boring, watery, and not worth $50 for 2 drinks.

    This was the single worst dining experience in recent memory. It seems hard to be this awful and nearly every aspect of a customer dining experience. From the hostess, to the waitress, to the prices, to the crampt seating - it was awful. Rude, overpriced and pretentious.

    Good drinks, excellent service, and a beautiful ambiance that contributes to it being a perfect date night spot. It’s small and the tables are seated closely, however, we were able to carry a private conversation and enjoy an intimate evening. Loved my experience at Deep Dive and it is now my favorite goto speakeasy bar.

    This was our first time going to deep dive and it was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My fiance is not a big drinker and the waitress helped suggest a cocktail based on the flavors she liked and she loved it. We had the focaccia bread which was the best bread I've ever had. We ended up getting two because it was so great. Loved the ambience and vibe of the place. Look forward to going back again.
