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.

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.

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.

I don't know why this place isn't constantly packed! The service is fantastic (the wait staff are a hoot), the wine list is amazing, and the butcher blocks are so much fun. What isn't to love?!? And the wine list is half off on Mondays! Give it a go and you won't be disappointed!

My husband and I sat at the bar. Food was good, but Garrett our bartender was EXCELLENT. Great attention and recommendations. I think your wine flights are far too pricey for 5 oz TOTAL. No where I’ve ever been does that small of an amount in a flight and then charge $30!

Food is always great, as is the wine. We were there on Mother’s Day. Our waitress was hella busy so at times we waited a long time for service or refreshed glasses. Support wait staff was on semi helpful. I’d still go back, but not at a popular holiday.

Service and food was great. Only problem we encountered was the portion size for the Nutella French toast. It was a special on Mother’s Day and was only given two half slices of the French toast. Not enough food for the price, even though it was very delicious. I would still come back as everything else was great!

The entire meal left much to be desired. size of the portions not worth the price. Left still hungry after appetizers and entree. Service could have been more attentive, but chalking the slow pace to a busy day. All in all, disappointing experience. Probably won't be back.

We are frequent diners at DOC Lombard, and will continue to be. A butcher's block of cheeses/meats and a glass of wine, and I'm set! This is a must for a weeknight catch-up, a weekend date night, or Sunday brunch.

My friend and I wanted to try someplace new for dinner and we decided on D.O.C. We were not disappointed! The waitress was extremely helpful when we asked for suggestions for food and wine. We got a small meat & cheese plate which was absolutely delicious. We picked two bruschetta, the lamb and an aged cheddar. It was delicious and came with great accompaniments to put with the meat and cheese. We also got the Brussels sprout flatbread. When it was delivered two pieces fell off onto the table and the waiter threw them away and brought us another half of a flatbread to make up for it which was wonderful since it was so tasty. We ended our dinner with the pineapple upside down cake which was a perfect portion and incredible. It had a banana cake base which was very flavorful and a side of vanilla ice cream to top it off. Throw in two big glasses of wine and we left full and very happy. We will definitely be back!

The Bordeaux from the Jupiter wine flight is fabulous. Still thinking of it a day later. The roasted half chicken with chimichurri and the loaded potato soup was also terrific. Always love going to DOC. It's like a little bit of Sonoma / Napa in the western suburbs.

Took my dad with for my birthday dinner and he is tough to please, but even he was impressed by the service and how quickly the food was served. The waitress took time to give us advice and recommendations on the menu. The food is served hot and the beer they served to my dad was cold! A little noisy, but the food, wine, and service is worth the experience. All the food choices are delicious, especially the Salmon. And they gave me a free dessert for my birthday! Highly recommend!
