Great place for dinner!!! Had the lamb chops and they were done to perfection. Started with the caprese salad which they have a twist of fried mozzarella which I just delish. Would go back again!!!

Courtney waited on us and did a fantastic job! Calamari was amazing. Best burger I've ever had. Black pearl dessert is a must:)

Enjoyed a lovely dinner here with a group of 4 couples. Staff is very helpful with a nice table near wine storage wall. Our waiter was great and explained many items on menu and made suggestions to help us choose. My husband especially loved the bone marrow appetizer with shot of scotch poured down the bone. Wow, what a treat.... More

Do not miss their Restaurant Week experience. For that matter, go any time! We went early so we could take advantage of the great happy hour drink specials. Their classic cocktails are all $5 from 4-6 pm. Hubby had a Sazerac and a Manhattan, while I had the Pimm's Cup. We both thought they were excellent. The list is long,... More

We enjoy going to Bar Divani - the food is inventive and delicious! The drinks are also very good! We especially enjoy the atmosphere - it's romantic and chic, but with relaxing vibe. The service has always been great and attentive.

We had a nice dinner here - good value for creative contemporary food. The salads were great and inexpensive, Mussels were huge and scallops grilled just right. Service was right on - but was not a busy evening. Prices very reasonable for service and food quality.

Made reservations for a quick dinner before the Garth Brooks concert. They respected our timeline, bringing all meals out on time and even reminded us when our deadline drew near. Two orders of spareribs were devoured as were the crab cakes and charcuterie. Great wine selection as well. Will return whether on a tight time-frame or not. A+ service too... More

Visited two years ago and was very impressed with menu and atmosphere. This visit was a bit different. We were the only two people in the place at 6pm - uncomfortable. Ordered some small plates that were OK but not as we remembered. Cocktails were the highlite as great time was taken to make and present them (there was no... More

We’ve been going to Bar Divani since it opened. It’s gone through some good and bad phases over the past 10+ years. We had stopped going in recent years (food had gone downhill quite a bit). It’s been under new ownership for over a year now. Changes aren’t physically visible – which is nice, because the décor is unique, comfortable,... More
