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 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!

Valentine's Day. The restaurant was very nicely decorated for the holiday, candles and the tables were also sprinkled with fresh rose petals! It was a very nice touch. The atmosphere was romantic with low lights too. We were there with a small group party of six, and our waitress was very professional and attentive. The food was the only, fair thing about the evening. 1/2 of our table ended up ordering grill cheese and tomato soup, which they thought was outstanding, but the other 1/2 orders dinner salads and the salads and were fairly ordinary. I would have liked to see a gourmet level when it came to the dinner salads. There are so many fantastic choices they could have offered. The restaurant did offer special cocktails for the holiday and of course the wine selection was outstanding. It was suggested I try a white bourgeois, in place of a moscato (which I found too sweet), and it was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

The food and cocktails were very good, however I was disappointed with two things. First, I had booked my reservation using Open Table's website. I had mentioned I was celebrating a friend's birthday and was hoping they could deliver a dessert to the table with a candle. That never happened. Second, our server never announced her shift was ending and would not be returning back to our table. We had to seek out another staff member to come to our table so that we could place another drink order and get our check.
As a courtesy to the customer, it would be nice if the server announces a shift change is to occur and someone else will be looking after our table.

Went in for second time with husband. Loved the light meal choices. We shared the apple Brie flatbread for appetizer. We both ordered the Wright wood salad for entree. Both choices delish! I also had a glass of Anthony & Dominic Pinot noir. Nice light wine choice. Very enjoyable! We will b back!

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!
