From my fiancé “Divani, Downtown GR. Have been there many times loved this place. Went there tonight and it was horrible. Steaks under done. 1 sent back and came back without without glaze. Now I can let that go, but the sevice was horrible. Waitin for drinks, empty glasses and ap plates sitting in front of us forever. After everything no break on the bill no apology. 500 dollars spent and could have gotten better food at outback for a quarter of the price. They just lost loyal customers. I feel like I have been robbed after leaving....and yes I still left a tip, although not as much as I usually do.”
From my to be brother-In-law “Just had a great time at dinner with my brother and sister-in-law a #Divani. The appetizers were good. The service was beyond bad. Three steaks ordered none of them cooked as ordered. Sent mine back and when it came out it did not come with the glaze or any of the extras. Such a bad service we will not be returning for a long time.”
From me: “Food wasn’t bad. The steaks were undercooked but was to afraid to send back and have it be over cooked. My brother-in-law got his so undercooked he agreed to another. Instead of having it served as it was supposed to be with a semi glaze, it was a piece of meat on a plate without the dressings it was supposed to have. What did the waitress say? “Well that’s obnoxious that the chef did that”. One would expect a comp on something right?! Or a free desert or SOMETHING... we got nothing. It was the service that was beyond horrible. Not what one would expect at a 4.9/$$$ rated restaurant. Their service has always been exceptional. Tonight I’d rate food at $$ and rate service at 3.5. Of course my brother-in-law would probably rate them at a 2 and he normally loves this place. I’m being generous. It’s over and done with. Rant over. This is the first time I’ve ever given a negative review for a restaurant in my life. I’m 54. That’s saying something.”

The place is really great! Food selection was good for Vegetarians and the Chef was very accommodating to make new open dishes. Service is also very nice and they give very good suggestions for pairings as well. Ambience is alright, great drink selection and the desserts are delicious. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a nice, romantic, pleasant, upscale dining experience!!

The food is very good. They seem to find ways to try to add things onto your bill with everything you order. (added protein , "Spiciing up" drinks". The restaraunt is very dim and you may need to use the flashlight on your phone to read the menu. They did forget to add my shrimp to the rissoto but otherwise, it was an ok dining experience.

We were greeted warmly by owner Molly and found the entire staff delightful! We started with specialty cocktails that bartender Marco made and they were delish. My husband had the filet and I had the Charcuterie Board as my dinner and each bite was such a great mix of flavors. We will come back and bring friends to experience this treasure in Grand Rapids!

I have been dining at Divani for many years. However it had been a couple years since I was last there. While the "latest and greatest" places seem to get a lot of initial attention and traffic (at least until the fervour dies down), it was great to see that all the great things I've loved about Divani have remained; a small intimate venue, excellent food and beverages, phenomenal services - Divani continues to do everything right in a highly competitive Grand Rapids dining landscape.

We were greeted promptly and seated immediately. There was good social distancing and all staff were masked. We were introduced to our table, which contained a small spray bottle of sanitizer for our use.

The semi fixed menu with several choices in each of the 3 courses was a phenomenal idea on a busy Valentine's night. Portions were good - not too large or small. Food quality and presentation were excellent.

Service was stellar! Lots of people were on the floor and willing to help but not in a crowded or overpowering way. Loved one of the bartenders periodically stopping by to obtain preferences and share cocktail ideas - their doing so really put the service and attention over the top and made us feel special.

Disappointed it's been so long since I'd been to Divani but they've moved to the forefront of my list. Can't wait to return to experience the full menu.

This was one of our first actual nights out since COVID, so we wanted to save it for V-Day. I made reservations a week before, which was very simple. Our waitress was Anneli and she was absolutely welcoming and energetic. She brought us a welcome drink, which was delicious! My wife had the Poprocks Punch...delicious! The meals served to us, which was their special three course meal for $62/person, were also delicious! 10/10 would recommend this place for either a date night or just to get drinks, COVID safely (of course).
