Wonderful experience! We went for a date night but lots of couples, groups, friends, etc. Great, friendly service and fun to watch all the unique drinks come out from the bar. We lucked out with a seat right next to the bar. Food was delicious, from appetizer to dessert! This place was not on my radar as it's somewhat hidden downtown but we will definitely be back. Outstanding all around. You won't be disappointed.

We drove from Big Rapids to Divani looking forward to and quiet evening of fine dining. We weren't disappointed. The Grouper was superb as was my partner's duck. And even with a bottle of wine, it didn't break our dining budget. Highly recommended.

I don't know how Molly does it. Probably one of the best wait staff and customer service in West Michigan. And where can find an owner that does it all. She is highly engaged in every aspect of the restaurant. I watched as she greeted all of the customers ..Not just the regulars... All of the customers

The food.....Yummy .....BBQ Duck was on point as always!

Thank You Molly

I guess I didn’t know what to expect goin into a place like this. The first thing I noticed was the excellent service. The second was the bar like atmosphere. Granted, it wasn’t like your average bar. It was sort of classy.
Next was the menu. I will say that the food choices were a little better than you basic Applebee’s type restaurant, but I was not very impressed with the quality vs the price point. My wife and I both got the burger and it was ok. I think the best part of the menu was the wine.
Lastly, I would like to mention the seating. I did not feel as though my time was well spent at Divani mostly because I FELT like I was at a bar. I know what you’re thinking. It IS a wine bar, but it is also supposed to be a restaurant. And, a nice one too.
Call me cheap, but when I pay nearly $100 for a meal, I would like it to be a great meal in a more relaxing environment.
All of this to say that if I had known I was going to pay fine dining prices for a meal that was a little better than T.G.I. Friday’s in a bar atmosphere, I would have looked somewhere else.

Last minute reservations and was able to get a table. From the minute we walked in we were treated like part of the family. Ambience was great and the service impeccable. Food was thoughtful and you could tell that the chef really care about what went out of the kitchen. My only criticism would be I thought the Demi glacé was a bit salty but still tasty. Even though the menu was limited there was something for everyone. Next time in that area I would definitely consider going back. Thank you very much for a wonderful meal.
