DOC Wine Bar - Lombard
Welcome to D.O.C Wine Bar - Lombard. We are elated to serve you as your neighborhood wine bar and bistro. We believe that wine is the "nectar of the gods" and should be enjoyed by all, novices and connoisseurs alike.
While we take what we do seriously, first and foremost, we believe drinking wine should be fun. It is our goal to offer a large variety of wine spanning the globe without any of the factors that may cause intimidation and hinder your enjoyment.
Established in 1963 and implemented in 1966, the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) ("Controlled Denomination of Origin") is Italy's equivalent to France's APPELLATION D'ORIGINE CONTRÔLÉE. DOC's are defined by the geographic area of production for each wine, the varieties that can be used, the minimum alcohol content, the maximum yield, and the specifications for aging.

The food and wine were fine. Nothing special. The service was good. We might go back, but I could take it or leave it. The tab was over $100 for two of us, which consisted of 2 glasses of wine, a cheese/meat platter, 1 sandwich and 1 dessert. The value was pretty poor, but we had a good time.
Perfect spot to catch up with friends and take our time snacking and wine tasting!
We love DOC. Good food, both small plates and meals. Desserts are excellent! Wine list is very complete and interesting.
Food was delicious and service was awesome!! Very friendly and attentive.
The Rigatoni and the Brick Chicken were excellent. Very tasty. My dining companion and I were planning to split both and they served us each 1/2 of each without our asking, and beautifully presented. I ordered a glass of white wine (Verdejo) that the server recommended and told me was acidic, which I like, and it was excellent and not expensive. The dessert, creme brulee was perfectly executed. Service was attentive without being intrusive.
I love everything about this restaurant from the dimmed lighting and ambiance to the staff. The food was really good. We ordered the chicken salad and fish tacos and they had my favorite red wine which was a nice surprise. I loved the ease of making a last minute reservation. It's a hidden gem!
We had a great time and our bartender/waiter was great! Just be prepared for a loud meal if it’s busy!! But it’s still worth it!
My favorite special perfect restaurant when I come home to Chicago! Always amazing and fun!!
This was my first visit to DOC. I tried the “Fame” wine flight. I only liked 1 of the 3. Very strange flavors in the last two options (herbal). We had the crispy Brie appetizer. It was okay. Not extremely flavorful. The tortilla soup was good, but very spicy. I like spice, my husband does not. I think he broke out in a full sweat. The ultimate grilled cheese was delicious. I shared the filet sliders with my hubby. They were very bland. The service was excellent. All of the people we interacted with were extremely friendly and attentive. It was an decent meal, just a little lack luster for the price.
Closes early on a Friday night
I have gone to DOC wine bar several times and this was the first time I’ve had horrible service. Our server was just very short and without any social skills. He asked what to you want... do you more ice tea.... and also took away our plates and tossed the silverware onto the table. No checking to see how everything was. Just acted as if we were doing him a favor. I actually liked this place a lot and I brought my friends there to celebrate a birthday. It was very disappointing.
DOC is our favorite place to go out, and my husband’s birthday was no exception. We loved the calamari and Brie/apple flatbread. The service was excellent as usual. We will definitely be back! Oh, and we appreciated the birthday treat! :)
Very unique food options and a huge wine list as you would expect.
Service was great - food wonderful. Prices a little high but no other complaints.
Bathroom could be cleaner though.
Fun to catch up with a friend over nice wine / dinner.
Have been to this restaurant in the past. Great wine list. Love the butcher block cheese and crackers. Everything was very good.
One of my favorite places to meet up with friends for lunch or dinner.
The food and wine were excellent! All four of us greatly enjoyed our meals and will return!
1st time dining, very welcoming, great service, will definitely visit again.
This was our second visit to this restaurant. The service is great: we sat inside this time because of the weather but there is a nice outdoor option when weather permits. There is a great selection of wines, and we very much enjoy the "butcher block" offering, where you can select either 4 or 8 small portions of cheeses, meats and/or bruschetta with various toppings. They have a wide variety and they are delectable. They have wine flights, which we tried previously, but they are way overpriced in that you pay $20 plus for a flight of three that totals...six ounces of wine. It's a nice restaurant for a date night or outing with a friend/friends.
Cheese plate and red wine flights were delicious! The service was great!
Really love the wine flights. Just a little pricey.
Food was great. The restaurant was a little chilly.
Great food. Great wine. Great service. Always a good time at DOC.
DOC is one of my favorite places to go for a quick, nice meal. It is quiet and service is consistently good. The food is amazing. My only comment is the lunch portion for the Ahi Tuna Sliders is getting quite small. Lastly, the place is always freezing, so I would love it if they could lower the A/C just a tiny bit.
Looking forward to going back to try something else.
The menu is very interesting and very good! The service was great! I have been there a few times in the past, and I have enjoyed it every time.
Loved the Tuesday wine specials!!! Was not aware until we arrived - on a Tuesday. :)
The food and service were excellent.
Enjoyed my experience. Food was very good and atmosphere was inviting - will definitely go back.
Service was terrible and my salad was not good.
Kaylee & Garett were awesome!
Friendly & attentive!
We come here every time we are in the area. Service is exceptional, nice selection of wines, cheeses and small plate foods. Proximity to other things also makes the location easy to get to.
Have to start out with a wine flight and a butchers board!
I was celebrating my birthday and really enjoyed the wine flight and all of our food options were excellent.
Seated immediately, knowledgeable server and service was great. Definitely a solid experience, will be back.
Westwood Salad is AMAZING!
Great wine, great service.
DOC never disappoints. I can't help but order a cheese board every time I go. They have a huge selection of great wines and the menu is varied, but anything I've ever had has been delicious. I'm a huge fan of the edamame hummus and brie and apple flatbread. The fish tacos are awesome, too! I love this place, and my husband and I love going here for date night.
Excellent food and service. Noisy atmosphere but we like the ambience.
