My partner and I attended for a date night and were extremely satisfied. Everything we had to drink had a nice attention to detail, and the charcuterie board was more than satisfactory as an appetizer. We were impressed by our entrees, and the ambiance really brought everything together. Not a place I would go to every day ($$$), but wouldn’t hesitate to recommend for a special occasion.

Great experience. The staff is friendly and engaging. The quality of the food is very high and creative. Cocktails and wine selection are very good. Prices are quite reasonable. The menu is limited, which allows the chef to offer top notch ingredients and be more creative. As other's have mentioned, it gets a louder as the restaurant fills up. We definitely plan on returning.

Everything was great! As the evening got later it did get a little lowder maybe due to the late night crowd coming in? Otherwise amazing experience.

Excellent food and service. We were well taken care by the staff. My steak was fork tender and delicious. If there was any negative, it was a little too dark in the restaurant. Lighting could have been a little brighter.

Excellent experience unexpected for Michigan let alone our high expectations for Grand Rapids. This was a Chicago tier experience with quality and attention to detail rarely found in this area. Reluctantly but highly recommend if only to keep it to ourselves.

Another great night at Divani! This was our second time dining here and it was outstanding, just like the first time. Marcus was our server this time and he went above and beyond to create a personalized drink and dining experience for us. We had so much fun learning about the cocktails he was creating! The food was delicious as well - fresh and flavorful. This time we brought my 19 year old daughter and she had as much fun as we did, stating "we have to come back to this place!!"
Thank you again for the wonderful night!

My wife and I owned a wine bar in Carmel, In for over 4 years and we found the restaurant offered a great selection of fine wine . Although the entrees were limited the filets we had was cooked to perfection and the charcuterie platter had a variety on meats and cheeses and was priced reasonably. We will be back during our next visit to GR.

It was a….weird experience. Our table was sticky, which was off-putting but nothing terrible. However our waitress, while generally nice, actively avoided us and was rude when I asked about different red wines. The food was over cooked and/or poorly seasoned and did not arrive fresh to our table. I realize during covid that well trained staff are hard to come by, but a lot of fine-dining details were definitely overlooked. It wasn’t the worst experience, but we won’t be back.
