Friday - Saturday 4pm - 12am Kitchen open until 11pm
Friends visiting & we selected Bar Divani for creative menu with all items being made on premise . Relaxed cozy atmosphere & very attentive service .
Absolutely incredible dining experience. Not only was the restaurant itself lovely with beautiful ambiance, but our waitress was incredibly welcoming and knew so much about wine. She was very much passionate about it and we spent a good deal talking about the history and nuances of wine tasting.
The food was delicious and paired perfectly with the wine the aforementioned waitress suggested.
On the pricier side for sure, but great for special outings, anniversaires, romantic dates, etc. If you’re looking to wow someone, visit Divani.
Great restaurant and decor. Service was excellent and the menu was different and fun. The calamari was too salty, but other than that, we loved all the food!
We were pleasantly surprised at the overall experience! Great food, awesome atmosphere, excellent service and just a great place! Will definitely go back soon!
Special trip to GRap for opera. Have dined at Divani several times. It is a great place EXCEPT it is WAY too dark. I could not see my food literally. They need to fix this. It has turned others away. Sad because food is great.
We had a very nice evening. We were celebrating a wedding anniversary and 2 birthdays. Service, food and presentation were great, as always. We will be back.
Our group had a wonderful meal and weren’t rushed at all.
Not a good night! Brought friends, this was their first time. Had reservation for 6:30, arrived on time and were sitting quickly. But out food took a long time. We informed our waitress that we were going to the concert at 8 when we got there. Also put in comments on opentable. Food came out at 7:45 and two out of four were cold. We had to inhale what we could in ten minutes and leave the rest. Waitress wouldn’t comp us either!!!
Food and service were excellent. The overall lighting was too dark, I had difficulty reading the menu , we were there for the Elton John concert and it was great to have his music playing during our dinner. Also the staff member who waited after closing to help with the credit card my mom left was very sweet and was so understanding. Thank you again
Everything was great except the time for the food. I get it was before Elton John, but the place was not at capacity. We arrived at 5:45. Orders were in at 6:15. We got the food around 7:30pm. Cutting it very close to the show. Wait staff was extremely pleasant and helpful.
Although the menu is limited, the choices are good. A little on the pricey side. Drinks were well made. Service was excellent. When full it does become challenging to converse. Convenient location near the Van Andel.
I only rarely will give any place 5 stars--but Divani earns it, in my opinion. The service was impeccable. The menu is varied enough to offer good options without being overwhelming (and the number of gluten-free options was impressive).
A note on the noise level: this visit was on a Tuesday, so things early in the evening were a little slow. On another visit, the restaurant had much more business, and was a lot livelier. So if you're looking for energy, go on a busy night; if you want quiet conversation, time it right!
First time at Divani, our usual spot was booked up so decided to try something new an was close to Van Andel for the event so we didn't need to drive. The food was excellent, tasted very fresh and well made. Appetizer didn't come before the meal, had to remind about it. Had to go to the bar to get a refill on my drink. Server had too many tables probably. We both had the Risotto and I would highly recommend. I wasn't wowed by this restaurant. The noise level was very loud and hard to have a conversation. They need to put ceiling panels in to help absorb the noise and keep it from bouncing around. If I was in a pinch I would eat here again, but not my first choice.
My favorite restaurant. Live the anbiance here.
What a pleasant surprise! We got there in time for happy hour for $7 cocktails. Our waitress was fabulous and understood we wanted to take our time. Our cheese board appetizer was so delicious with a nice variety of items plus their homemade pork sausage! Our main courses were so unique, very fresh! Farm to table , a gem of a place!
Made a friends birthday very special! Thanks Divani!
Best burger in GR. Nice atmosphere, good service. Will be back.
A good friend and I were in town on a Thursday night and had a wonderful meal here. On a small menu there were plenty of vegetarian and gluten free options.
Everything we had was delicious. Duck breast with chimichurri sauce was cooked perfectly. Wild mushroom risotto was a true risotto, not overcooked, not heavy but full of rich mushrooms with each grain Al dente. Salad with summer vegetables fresh and inventive with a gorgeous dressing.
The ambiance was romantic so if your on a date this would be for you! For us it was wonderful that the carpeted floors meant we over 60s could hear each other and have the deep conversation and connection that is so important. Thank you Divani!
We were able to get a reservation on a Monday - unusual because they are usually closed on Monday, but they had a couple of group reservations for the night, and said that since they were open, we could go! The groups did not overwhelm the room with noise- we had a great cozy table with a street view, could hear each other while we enjoyed our meal, and also were able to learn from the staff how the art prize pieces in the restaurant were chosen - they were thoughtful and excellent. The food- THE FOOD! Everything was properly prepared, excellently sauced, and this place GETS vegetables. Everything on the plate is given the attention it deserves. Can't wait to return!
The service is top of the line - knowledge, fun and one top of everything. Then the food, every item on the menu is carefully crafted for you viewing and palette pleasure
The ambiance was wonderful! Service was great but the food wasn’t that good. The bruschetta pasta was basically noodles in vinegar for $20. Explains why it was so empty. But very pretty
What a beautiful restaurant! Dark and cozy and tables were nicely spread out. Great for a special occasion, but any time would work. It was a quiet night and the two servers who were there took great care of us. I know one was Sarah and she was very friendly and talked with us about the restaurant, the food, the drinks, and they were both very accommodating. I can't remember the other young lady's name but she was very pleasant and helpful too. If I lived in Grand Rapids, I would go there often. The food was wonderful...shrimp and grits are incredible... They also had great selection of wine, cocktails and champagne, all in a cool, trendy area. Thank you for a great evening!
We came here for my boyfriend's birthday with a group of 8. They seated us at a semi-private table which was really nice. We loved our server who was knowledgeable and upbeat. The food was excellent and the drink menu was extensive. Lots of good scotch options!
Great service. Went there for an anniversary and they gave us free dessert!
We have visited Divani a few times over the past two years. They consistently deliver a good experience. Prices are a bit higher than the norm in GR, but the food is excellent, the wine list is interesting, and service is attentive. Even though we had not been there since February, the server recognized us and welcomed us back. The menu isn't extensive, but it changes with the seasons. The chef is terrific; his food is well presented, delicious, and not overly salty (a rarity in Midwest restaurants).
As my wife is a big foodie & her birthday falls on GR Restaurant week, I figured this would be a perfect treat. I thought she would like the option of the wine pairing on the restaurant week menu would be something she liked.
The restaurant is beautifully decorated, with just dark woods & wine bottles on glass cases on the walls and floors. It’s a really cozy & fine dining atmosphere.
The Restaurant Week menu went out the window once my wife discover duck was on the menu, which I also chose. She had wine, I had a delicious cocktail.
I had delicious calamari for starter, I mean it was gorgeous. We had our 5 year old in tow and he was made feel very welcome, he got some really delicious pasta, which was great as we find childrens food is sometimes an afterthought. So huge compliments on that.
Both are duck mains were wonderful, not just the duck but the sides also stood out. We had the chocolate bomb dessert and a delightful coffee.
Our waiter couldn’t have been better. A really enjoyable night out.
We were their for Restaurant Week and had a terrific dinner. Great service, drinks, and food. One of my favorite places in town.
Restaurant menu particularly the beef Wellington was outstanding. The steak melted in your moth. Shrimp bisque soup was also a great choice.
Excellent food and service!
A nice dinner as always for a date night. Parking is getting hard to find so we used valet parking and it worked out well
There are very few restaurants where one can order anything on the menu and know it will be incredible. This is one of those places. Everything I ordered was the best version I have ever had of that thing: cocktails, wine, charcuterie, pear beet salad and risotto were all fantastic. Vegetarian and gluten free options were clearly marked and the staff were knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful dinner at Divani! The service was absolutely outstanding, from the bartender to our server to the manager, who was helping out the servers throughout the evening. My husband didn't care for his dinner, and they quickly made it right by bringing him something else. He said the burger was the absolute best burger he's ever had. We will absolutely be back!
Food, cocktails and service were all great as usual! This remains one of our favorite dinner spots.
The food was amazing! Steak tartare, pear and Beet salad, and mushroom risotto. We were well taken care of from the moment we arrived until we left. The ambience is dark, cool, and eclectic reminiscent of something from another time and place. The cocktails were wonderful too. Highly recommended and we will be back - thank you!
Mother’s Day Brunch was great! The service was excellent and we were greeted or waited on by 4-5 different members of their staff, all whom wished my wife a happy mother’s day. The special menu came out perfectly and in a timely manner, our drinks were fantastic (Mimosas) and overall it was a great experience in the heart of downtown. Parking is also simple and was $3.50. All in all we will definitely be back and can’t wait to try Divani for dinner.
Went to Divani for our anniversary dinner and had a great time! The food was fresh and on point - so was the service. It is one of the pricier options on Ionia, but well worth it!
Our server, Jordan, was exceptional. She was very informative and humble
Arrived 30 mins early for our reservation. Were originally told our table would be ready in 30 mins. Strange since the restaurant was almost empty. A short time later they accommodated our party of 9.
The food selection was small but everything was great. The Beef Tartare was especially good as was the Guacamole. I had the special, steelhead which was prepared perfectly.
Meal was a bit pricey but the atmosphere was relaxing, even with two little ones. Overall a nice experience.
Perfect birthday evening!!
