    Ambience was perfect, service and cocktails were great. Apps were pretty good, boyfriend is a Beef Tartare enthusiast, and was disappointed when the quail egg came out over hard. I had lasagne and he had the charcuterie board for dinner. No complaints on either, but neither was exceptional.

    We have been wanted to try Divani for a while now and finally made it for my husbands birthday. As soon as we walked in the hostess was very friendly and we were able to get seated early for our reservation. Our waitress Carleigh was fun, energetic and helpful with the menu. Marcus was the bartender and made us very yummy and fun drinks. They provided my husband with a free birthday dessert that came out with a sparkler! The crème brûlée was delicious :) Food, drinks, and staff were 10/10! We loved our evening at Divani and can’t wait to go back for a special occasion or just to sit at the bar and enjoy a fun cocktail.

    Beautiful just beautiful. The ambiance is worth the price alone. You walk in to a dark candlelit feel with the smell of cinnamon and tobacco. Charcuterie board is one of the best I’ve had, the honeycomb and cheese especially. Both me and my fiancé loved our meals (she had the pork shank I had the filet). Desert was fun and very good, we had the s’mores parfait. A high price for a great experience, but we got what we paid for 10/10

    Great food, great wine, service was very adequate, not spectacular, but we didn’t wait and were attended to well. Design of the place could be a little more dramatic, but was over all nice. We were close to the other table. At first I was worried they would overhear but it was fine. Really good food and wine though and that is what is most important. Quinoa salad was incredible. I will go back for that!

    We started with the Charcuterie and Cheese along with Shrimp and Grits - the expectations were through the roof. As we enjoyed the sublime "Up In Smoke" cocktail for her and the best "Manhattan" he's ever had, we moved on to main course. The Bistro Filet was perfect: presentation, cooking preference, seasoning, everything. The newly debuted Asian Pork was mind blowing. And our server Morgan? Incredible. Exceptional service, infectious smile, and a loving and welcoming aura. With all our love from Virginia, we'll be back!

The filet dinner was the best I’ve every had and my husband loved their salmon special of the day. Even the kids meals that our children got were delicious.

    A little jem hidden away in GR. The menu was a little limited with no real option for a chicken entree which is a little surprising but overall we would definitely recommend this place. Our server was outstanding. Unfortunately I can’t remember her name but she was super attentive and mixed us a custom drink which was out of this world. The food was very good and it came out quickly and well prepared. The thing is we really felt welcomed here. Not only was our server excellent, all the servers stopped by and asked how we were. Doesn’t take much effort but we really appreciated the attention. Finally the bar tender was brilliant. Came round to make a suggestion on our cocktail which as I mentioned was top notch! Give this place a try, we will be going back for sure.

    DivaniResponded on September 13, 2022Thank you for the nice review, I'm especially happy you enjoyed the welcoming service of my team, as that is always our priority!

    If we could give Divani more than 5 stars we would! We eat out three times a week, all over West Michigan, and we have never had better food. You can taste that every bite was uniquely planned and deliciously prepared all day with love. The craft cocktails are so good we tell strangers about them. The servers are always patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. Even when we spend 2-3 times as much we say “We should have gone to Divani.”

    Kind of hard to find. Make sure you park in the ramp. Our waiter spent most of her time talking to people at the bar on the clock that appeared to be personal friends instead of tending to us so that was frustrating. It also took about an hour for food to come out. Lastly, the power went out several times. As an upscale restaurant you would think they have generators.. Updated response to the owner: Hi Molly, as a customer I find the tone you chose to respond with absurd, guilty and tacky. As an owner you have to be receptive to feedback. Not offended. Maybe talk to Open Table about not prompting your guests for feedback? Especially since it appears you are not in a space to learn from it. This was simply my experience so I shared it. Honestly, I believe you are referencing a different group than mine given no one at our table ordered well done steaks.. or maybe you ARE referring to the right group and it was your mistake because we were all wondering why the steaks were well done. Anyway, maybe invest in a secondary generator? During our dinner the lights and your system to cash out guests went out 3-4 times. The generator really wasn’t a concern, it was more of a suggestion. However, since you are addressing concerns, my only concern is the professionalism you are lacking right now. I recommend taking a customer service course. It will take you far! **I won’t be back after this response and I hope anyone in GR reading this review and how I was responded to gets a good idea of the type of environment this is and the type of people running the show**

    DivaniResponded on July 26, 2022As the owner of Divani, I find this review to be completely absurd. However, when guests arrive 45+ minutes late to their reservation with no regard for the business and/or the 1 guest of the party who has been patiently waiting alone, maybe I shouldn't be so surprised. Yes, well done steaks do take time & yes my team does have other guests to attend to. Then, 3.5 hours later to have the audacity to state you're in a hurry? Lastly, we do have a generator, if anyone is truly concerned. Molly

    Divani is a lovely restaurant with everything you want - great wine list, yummy appetizers that are unique, great salads and fabulous entries. The menu is not expansive but each thing there is beautifully composed and presented. The wait staff is attentive but not pushy. The cocktails are also delicious and for dessert, we had one of the best crème brûlée’s I have ever eaten! We have never been disappointed there!

    DivaniResponded on July 29, 2022Hi Susie!! Thank you so much for all the compliments on our food and staff, it's great to know that you enjoyed your evening with us! I cannot agree with you enough about our creme brulee - Chef Jeff makes a different flavor from scratch every weekend and never ceases to amaze. We can't wait to have you back! Peace!
