We can always count on Divani’s to be a wonderful experience. The people are friendly, the service is impeccable, and we have never been disappointed with our foods. They serve up a mean cocktail, as well.

Staff were AMAZING! We asked for social distancing, and they were extremely accommodating. They were very attentive refilling our waters, checking on how our food was, etc... while also giving us some privacy/space to enjoy our meal together :)

Thank you! :)

Some of the best food and drinks in Grand Rapids!
The first time we visited this place offered a quiet, romantic environment. The most recent time we visited however there was a loud overwhelming group that was dining in the restaurant as well. The waitresses came over to us and apologized for it, which was very kind. Shortly after that the table was cashed out and the ambiance of the restaurant went back to romantic and enjoyable. They also offer Soy-Free options which is very cool coming from someone with a Soy allergy!
10/10 would recommend this place.

We ate in the bar area and service, though pleasant, was very slow. Simple dinner took about an hour and a half. Hard to attribute to Covid staffing issues, as there seemed to be plenty of staff on site. I had to go to the bar to request the check at the end because my family was getting impatient. I think it was more a question of unclear responsibility for our table.

Everyone liked their meals and the decor / ambiance is very nice, so I will try it again.

Ringing in the new year! New Year’s Eve was a great experience thanks to all of the staff at Divani.
From the moment we walked in our hostess was prompt and very courteous.
I can’t say enough about our server Shelly, she was above and beyond. By far the best service I have had in the Grand Rapids area is Shelly, she made us feel welcome and made sure our night was enjoyable.
The food was top notch and Shelly’s suggestions on drinks to pair were spot on.
I’ll be booking again for a table at Divani because of the atmosphere and the staff, the food was just phenomenal.

The "communal" style of service is a little confusing, you can ask any wait staff at anytime; however, they did not make that clear when we were seated. Related, we did not have anyone regularly stop at our table to see if we needed anything. Once you understand this, its fine, but just different. I would highly recommend.
