DOC Wine Bar - Lombard
Sunday Afternoon lunch was relaxed and just what my daughter and I needed. The food was delicious and our server could not have been more attentive. The kids menu and ice cream that came with all kids menu orders was perfect to keep my 2 year old grandchild happy.
will definitely return! Had the small butcher block app wish we had ordered the large. Fabulous selection of meats, cheeses and bruschetta choices.
Wine selection had a nice variety from different regions and within different price points.
Thank you, PJCP! We love to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us!
Great place. Good food, great ambiance. A regular place in our rotation. Food prices can be reasonable, if you choose wisely, but wine and cocktail prices are on the high side for sure.
MichaelP, thank you for the review! You'll have to come see us next time for our specials: SUNDAY 1/2 price wine flights MONDAY 1/2 price bottles of wine TUESDAY 1/2 price glasses of wine
Met up with one of my girl friends that I haven’t seen in a while and our server was very sweet and patient since we were very chatty and made sure we were always okay. Good service!
Thank you for the review, MichelleG!
Finally made it there. We were a little late for our reservation due to some inclement weather. Great experience
We love to hear that you enjoyed your experience, RobertA! Thank you for the review.
The restaurant was very dirty. From the entrance by the hostess stand all the way to our table, the floor was filthy with food and leaves from outside. It looked like they hadn’t vacuumed or swept in days. I won’t be going back.
Restaurant has a very cool vibe inside, great decor. The butcher block appetizer was tasty and the crab cakes were incredible. Probably the best I have ever had. Would absolutely recommend as place to go with friends or on a date.
One of my favorite places to eat!
Had a great time. Only downside was we had to wait about 25 minutes to be seated and we had a reservation
We appreciate the review and feedback. Thank you for being patient with us during your wait.
Garrett was our server and he was fantastic. Made it fun! Should we go back I would definitely request him again.
We love to hear that, Julie! Looking forward to seeing you again, soon!
Girl's night out with great food, great wine and great conversation!
Thank you, DonnaH!
Lots of good choices for cheese boards. The wine flights are nice too. We had a very pleasant and attentive waitress.
Thank you, LanaM!
One of our favorite places for date night! Great food and great service!
Love their wine. Great place for girls night!
Thank you, CynthiaM!
The restaurant manger did not stop by to see if our meal was good...the waitress only came by to drop the food but did not check if our meal was right which was not. Very disappointing since it was not our first time @ DOC.
We appreciate the review, irisrivera. We hate to hear that you were disappointed with your recent experience. We pride ourselves on superior service and delicious food in a friendly-neighborhood environment and it sounds like we dropped the ball and for that I apologize. I will be speaking with our team to ensure that the service points you mentioned do not become an ongoing issue. Please feel free to reach out with any additional comments or feedback on how we can improve your experience.
Our first time. Love the wine flight. Great way to try before ordering a bottle, which we did. Butcher charcuterie, great appetizer because we each picked something that was delicious. Two if us had the sliders, another the panini. I had the rigatoni. All of us pleased with our meal. Felt like we were in a very small intimate club-like environment. Would highly recommend!
Hi Amber, we love to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit with us. Please come see us again, soon!
Nice location. The butchers platter was excellent, enjoyed the Cuban sandwich we shared, and had an overall good experience. Will be going back, might become our pre-theater restaurant of choice.
Sndcj1, thank you for the review and feedback! We would love to see you again, soon!
As I would expect the wine selection was pretty good and I enjoyed my selection, the Cabernet from California. Food was just a little off and I can’t tell you exactly why but both of us felt that it was a little bit like food that wasn’t real.
Maybe we’re spoiled – we’d just had a weekend in Chicago at super wonderful restaurants, and this is more of a chain, but honestly this was pretty average. It wasn’t horrible. Salmon was average. Flat bread was good but not amazing. I was surprised that they served sliced tomato with the salmon entree - that reminded me of the slices you would get on a burger. It was all OK. That’s all I can tell you – food is pretty good to OK and wine is good and I love sitting outside and looking at the sunset and ignoring the parking lot… My waitress was fabulous and all the service was wonderful. There’s not much else I can say. It’s a chain. But if you want to fill your belly and not have a bad experience, and you feel like having a nice glass of wine and sitting outside, or sitting in a highly air-conditioned inner-restaurant with a nice bathroom – this is it!
Hi katzbro, we appreciate the review and feedback.
Love DOC Wine Bar! Great food and service!
Thank you, lpreview! We love to hear that !
The variety & quality of food is always so good at DOC Wine Bar. Flat breads are great & the Fried Brie as well as one of our favorites, filet sliders, were perfect. Our waitress was efficient and so friendly. Wish I could remember her name. What a wonderful experience!
Hi LynL, thank you for the review and feedback.
Wine Flights run between 20-30 which isn’t a bad deal. Butchers board has a great selection of meats and cheeses and the banana beignets were great.
Thank you for the review and feedback. We hope to see you again, soon!
Excellent as always!
This place never disappoints. They have a good selection of food and great wine.
Thank you for the review and feedback!
The food was excellent. Crab cakes nicely seasoned and they melted in your mouth. Will be returning.
Thank you! Looking forward to seeing you again, soon!
Excellent wine selection, charcuterie board never disappoints. We always enjoy a date night out here.
Thank you for the review! Please come see us again, soon!
It’s always a great time with a friend when I come here. Food is always great! I’ve brought several people here and always had a great meal.
Hi Tina, thank you for the feedback and review!
We enjoy coming on Friday nights and sitting in booth in bar area. Wine selection is good. We usually split a couple of shareables. Sign up for the 4 star program
Thanks, Windycitygirl! Did you know that you can also earn points for referring friends to sign up for our 4 Star Rewards Program?
Can't review the noise level as this was a late lunch - the food was outstanding. My friend and I each had a filet slider and a salmon slider - both outstanding. Can't really say much else - nice decor, friendly server and hostess! I'm assuming much more energy in the evening or for a more normally timed lunch, not just prior to a holiday. We were there July 3rd.
HarryS, thank you for the review! Glad that you enjoyed your experience with us! Please come see us again, soon.
Have loved this place for 10 years
Dined and also hosted 2 special events here
Food always amazing
This time our server Amber spoiled the experience tho Not like the usual great servers we have had Acted like she was going out of her way just to do her job Could have done without the eye rolling when we weren’t ready to order or only got one dessert
Hi Martha, we appreciate the review + feedback. We love to hear that you've had great experiences with us in the past, but hate to hear that your service was such a disappointment. We pride ourselves on superior service and great food in a family-friendly atmosphere and we definitely dropped the ball this time around. I'll be speaking with the manager to ensure that this isn't an ongoing issue with any of our team members. Please feel free to reach out with any additional comments. Thanks, Tony
Excellent food and service. Have had the butchers block, bistro burger, flatbread, Cuban and all have been excellent.
Thanks, TomO! The Butcher's Block is definitely a fan favorite! See you again, soon!
I’ve always loved DOC since living is the city. I haven’t eaten there in a couple years. The cheese platter is always my favorite. It was completely plain with no extras and the meat was really warm. Yuck.
Good morning, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We hate to hear that your cheese platter was a disappointment. We aim to provide the the highest-quality service and food and looks like we dropped the ball and for that I am sorry. We've passed your notes to the manager to ensure that this isn't an ongoing problem. Please feel free to send us any additional feedback about your recent visit, we would love to keep you in our family of restaurants. Thank you, Tony.
Loved the extensive appetizer menu. Food was very fresh and tasty! Enjoyed the great choice of wine flights also.
Thanks, Mimala for the review!
Great food and excellent wine list. the filet sliders are awesome.
Thank you, PittVisitor!
Food and drinks were very good! We happen to be seated next to a table that had three people screaming at each other during their entire dinner until one of them got up and walked out. It was very distracting.
Lovely & great service. Great food, wine and our waiter was amazing!
Thanks, LynnC! We love to hear that you had a great experience with us!
Rock star service
Thx for making our anniversary a great time.
Thanks for the review! Happy Anniversary!
Bree is an amazing server who pays attention to every detail, and her manager, Mike, went out of his way to help celebrate our anniversary with champagne and desert. This was on the house, and they didn't have to do it, but they both went above and beyond to make our day special. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
We'll definitely be back! We love D.O.C.
Love the variety of cheeses. Consistently good service, and it is almost always quiet enough to have a conversation with your friends.
Upon entering there was a smell of smoke and could see it in the air, must have ventilation issues. The hostess replied to my questioning of this, saying she was used to it. We were seated immediately and ordered a half bottle of wine, pricey for 1 1/4 glasses a piece. My boyfriend had the chicken, which was tasty, but I had a salad which was very bland and somewhat wet. The wait staff was very attentive but almost to the point of being rushed and annoying. I might go back and try just the starters with a glass of wine and sit outside, where there is no smoke! But, would not highly recommend this place.
