About 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.

It’s a cozy spot for trying new wines and their butcher boards were great. A nice little date night with my husband

Had a lovely New Year's at DOC! The food was excellent per usual. Love the edamame hummus and the flatbreads! We also enjoyed the cheese flight...always a good choice!

A must - go restaurant. If there for lunch, do try the brussel sprout appetizer, the walnut salad and the soup! All are excellent. I hear the grilled cheese is awesome too!

We enjoyed our evening at DOC. It was one of the first cold nights locally and after seating us about three tables away from the door, the hostess came over and suggested we move into the restaurant more. That was a nice way to start the night. Our waitress was attentive to our needs without being obtrusive. She seemed to be there right at the right time. We had two starters and then had the four item Charcuterie board. Portion size on the starters was good, and the duck and bruschetta from the board were plenty and what I would expect. The pate and cheese we got were a bit smaller than I would expect and not consistent in size. This was not a deal breaker but something I would at next time. We had dessert and it was tasty and a nice size. Overall, we had a really enjoyable evening and would go back.

I made a reservation a week ahead of time. They put us in the side room, not the main dining room. I asked to get a table in the main dining room and they said it would be another 45 min wait. While we were there, a large group came in with a lot of kids that were being very loud and obnoxious. The other times i have been there have been great. Very disappointed!

The appetizer plate of different types of bruschettas and cheeses were great - I liked the fact that you could pick combos yourselves. They were also very gracious as I was planning to redeem a credit from open table but had trouble pulling it up on my phone and they honored it anyway - I very much appreciated that. Our waiter was also very patient as we were not always ready to order, for refill of wine etc - he cheerfully came back when we were. I will visit again!

Delightful! DOC wine bar was a pleasant surprise. We picked the place based on location when I met a friend there on a Friday evening. We enjoyed a wine flight and cheese board to start, then had mini-sliders and split the brussel sprouts salad. The ambiance was conversation friendly, the service was top notch. We'll definitely be back!

Always excellent food. Service wonderful. My only complaint is that every time I go there, it is freezing inside. They did make it a tad more comfortable when we asked. Always bring a sweater or light jacket if you get cold, like I do. Haven't been there in winter yet. I will save room for desert next time, as the selections look delicious!

We have frequented DOC many times and this was the first time that we've been disappointed. The bacon wrapped dates had been a favorite but they seem to have changed the sauce they're served in. Pretty bland. The Baja tacos were also lacking any distinct flavor. The fish was underwhelming and the crema pretty uninspiring.

The service for the first time also seemed to miss the mark. Seemed pretty unenthusiastic.
