My daughter and I enjoyed yet another perfect dinner at Divani before seeing Trans Siberian Orchestra. We loved the dinner, the amazing atmosphere and handcrafted drinks. The service here is the best in town and we can't recommend Divani enough!!

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.

Excellent drinks and dinner. Beautiful ambiance. We made reservations for six o'clock, thinking two hours would be plenty of time to eat before our eight o'clock show at Van Andel. We were celebrating my friend's birthday and told all of this to our personable server. She was very sweet, but, unfortunately, even though we played it safe and placed our order right away, it took 45 minutes to an hour to get our food and we were rushed to get our bill to pay before our show started. No birthday recognition; no time for dessert. I would still return but only when I have nowhere else to be.

Divani was was fantastic. The menu was limited, but what it was was fantastic. The portions were smaller than most higher end places in the same price range however. I would expect an 8oz filet instead of 6oz for the price. Service was very good and the dining experience was fantastic. Overall I'd say a 4.75 out of 5.

The bbq duck was superb as was the shrimp and grits. The recommended wine was not to my liking especially for the price.
Signage could be improved, I walked past twice and had to call. The worst for me though was trying to slow down the hostess....I am handicapped, like to hold onto the door for balance as I enter the threshold but the hostess kept asking me questions before I was all the way through the doorway. A simple greeting will do until I am in.

Divani
Responded on November 1, 2021

Hello Lauretta, As the owner of Divani, not an unseasoned "hostess", I am finding it difficult to comprehend how me greeting you at the door, inquiring how your day was & asking if I can hold the door for you is somehow offensive. When I told my chef that you thoroughly enjoyed the meal he prepared for you, he informed me that you frequent the East Town establishments. Fortunately, there are various environments & cultures in GR for people to enjoy. I am sorry Divani isn't to your liking

We have always had a great experience here. This time was no different and we always recommend to our friends to either join us or go on their own. Love the bartender being willing to come to the table and chat with us about creating something special for us as well. I appreciate being able to make a reservation and the table be waiting for us when we arrive. Every person who serves us has a great personality and seems to genuinely know what is going on and enjoy their job.

Visited Grand Rapids for the first time. We had Indicated it was an Anniversary dinner through our reservation which was made at least a week prior. We were expecting a 5 star meal and service for our special meal and night. Instead, we received an honest 3.5 star. We were seated away from the main dinning to a side room in a decor-less room with no ambiance?! None! Although the staff was friendly, there were no mention of our Anniversary. The saving grace was that the food was good. Wanted to get desert at the end of our meal, but we had to wait too long so we called it a night. Although it was not perfect, we gave a generous 25% + tip cause of the current situation. Again, I’m sure everyone has their own dinning experience, wished it would have been better and memorable for the price you pay. For us, unfortunately it was a 3.5 star dinning experience. An Anniversary dinner that became just a meal…

I am glad you enjoyed your dinner on Saturday! As the owner of Divani, I personally plot the flow of our floor every evening & I am sorry you were disappointed where I sat you. Knowing we had numerous larger parties full of some of our more boisterous guests at the same time of your arrival, I presumed you would appreciate a quieter & more intimate area for your anniversary celebration. I do greatly appreciate you taking care of my team! Molli
