The cheese platter was excellent. However, we ordered the two available vegetarian entrees and they were both disappointing. The mushroom risotto was under seasoned and the butternut squash was crunchy. The soba noodles were completely bland and I had to ask for a spoon for the broth. The service was ok, but minimal.

Our waiter was fantastic, and everything was surprisingly kid friendly. That was a rare treat at a restaurant near Van Andel Arena.

We took friends for dinner on a Tuesday. Very good food, service, wine and appetizers. Nice setting and we were able to have a conversation at the table without having to raise our voices.

Excellent food. Extensive drink selection. Great ambiance. Service was a little slow but it did not interfere with our plans later in the evening, so that was good

Great food!!! Attention to detail, music/atmosphere and wait staff all contributed to an outstanding meal on a cold night. The Duck Two Ways was the standout with the duck being superbly prepared and the rice/lima bean/raisin side having no equal in recent dining memory. We arrived towards the end of dinner service but recieved attentive and helpful service start to finish. Prices are not cheap but you don't get this quality on the cheap and in my mind the price is more than fair for the quality.

My Husband And I Dined In At Divani For Our Anniversary Night. And I Must Say I Love This Place. Our Waiter And The Bartender Were Very Nice, Helpful And A Pleasure To Deal With. They Sat Up A Special Table For Us With A Window View & Candles Lit. Our Dinner Was Great The Chef There Did A Great Job. The Interior Of This Place Is So Warming And Peaceful. I Enjoyed The Vibe We Will Definitely Be Returning Again For Another Romantic Evening.

It's been a while since we went to Divani. We went for the Valentine's day prix fixe menu. With that being said, I was a little disappointed that most of the items seem to be from their standard menu. They are, nonetheless, very good, and if you do not go to Divani often, the fact that it's the same food is not so bad, considering they are all very thoughtful dishes. The risotto remains excellent, and we also shared a lovely fillet. The dessert was, as usual, scrumptious. The staff remain excellent. So it was basically like a good old memory, since I used to come to Divani a fair amount and now probably go once every couple of years.

Divani is my new favorite GR restaurant. The food flavors were outstanding. Service was friendly and courses were delivered at a perfect pace. Portion sizes were spot-on. The room provides a simple charm but is far from pretentious with background music delivered with a quality equal to everything else here. Employees are upbeat and engaged. Overall, it was an experience that bears repeating.

We Love Divani and are planning to have our wedding there... so naturally it was our choice for Valentine’s Day! We are never disappointed!! The salmon was heavenly, we’re still talking about it 5 days later...and the pistachio creme brûlée was, well, Divine! Spectacular service by Jordan, just phenomenal all around! Champagne, cocktails, amazing and unusual salads... we just can’t say enough about our Divani!

Absolutely delicious food and superb service. The work environment is obvious with the servers and the care for their work and the fun they have together. Another impressive experience. I was here the week before celebrating my sister’s engagement. The team was attentive and accommodating. The ambiance is perfect for a date night.

Just dined at Divani as a yearly tradition during our annual trip to Grand Rapids for Christmas shopping. Our server, Arielle, was outstanding. The charcuterie and cheese board was creative and the drinks were outstanding. Surprised when we received the bill that our first drinks were during happy hour and half price. The mussels were ok, but the cheesecake had an amazing spiced crust. The coffee with dessert is a really great French pressed. My wife had a delicious port. Looking forward to next year’s experience!

This was a very pleasant surprise. We were visiting Grand Rapids for a gymnastic meet and my wife and I wanted a quiet place for a nice dinner before the family arrived for the meet. I found Divani on Yelp being within walking distance from the hotel at which we were staying. The room is beautiful, quiet, and romantic. The staff was very attentive yet not overbearing. The food was fantastic. Try the duck. The wine list was excellent. And we were surprised that the price for such great food, wine, service and atmosphere was as so moderate. Next time in Grand Rapids we will make sure to go back. Five Stars..

Absolutely incredible dining experience. Not only was the restaurant itself lovely with beautiful ambiance, but our waitress was incredibly welcoming and knew so much about wine. She was very much passionate about it and we spent a good deal talking about the history and nuances of wine tasting.
The food was delicious and paired perfectly with the wine the aforementioned waitress suggested.
On the pricier side for sure, but great for special outings, anniversaires, romantic dates, etc. If you’re looking to wow someone, visit Divani.
