I decided to celebrate my boyfriend and my friend's birthdays at Divan. I have never had such a great experience! We had a party of eight and were perfectly accomodated in one of the VIP rooms upstairs. We had enough room for us and for more people, just in case more showed up. Our server was excited to have us and extremely knowledgeable about everything from drinks to the menu to hookah. She guided us right through the night. We all ordered from Divan's house drink menu and they were delicious! Our hookahs were perfect and tasty (we had mint, orange, and margarita with mint). We had the hummus, crab risotto croquettes, and potatoes for appetizers. The portions were great and the appetizers themselves were to die for! Between four couples we split four meals which was more than enough food! The restaurant held an ice cream cake for me and our server brought it out after dinner with candles and all. Our server made sure that our night went perfectly! I will DEFINITELY return to Divan, whether I am with a big group or just with my honey!
Good food and good times – I have visited Divan many times during the last 5 years. The food and service are always consistent and superb. The atmosphere is unique and upscale. I pretty much gave up going there on the weekends because it gets very crowded and without a reservation it is impossible to land a table. Instead, weekdays are not too busy. On most weekdays they have specials on food or drinks. When I want ti have a relaxing evening, I usually get a table upstairs away from the crowd and have dinner with my friends. It is highly recommended.
Divan Worst Service and Overpriced – The restaurant has a nice atmosphere but it is not worth the time nor money.
I ordered the Tilapia which was unedible and extremely overcooked with no flavor at all. I then ordered a coke and had a refil, yet the place charged me $5 for 2 Bottled Cokes, which were clearly fountain drinks.
The garlic shrimp was decent but not worth $20. The service was extremely slow and it took over an hour to recieve the food.
The blue room upstair is extremely cold. Seeing that this restaurant is an old house, they have numerous problems with heating and cooling in different rooms.
The best part of the service was the valet. My car was waiting for me readily when I left. I will not be returning to this restaurant and I do not advise people to attend.
Divan is in no way divine – Although my previous experiences at Divan were pleasant, I regret ever patronizing this establishment. My husband and I entertained a large group of family members there for dinner and spent a large sum of money there last night. The many tapas plates that we ordered were delicious, as well as the entrees, which we all ate. Our server was polite. However, we were not given a chance to order desserts or coffee, which we all wanted. Nor were we allowed to order hookah, of which we wanted several. In fact, we were asked to leave while I was still eating my $31 lambchops! Apparently "our time was up." Even after a conversation with the manager, who was quite condescending and smarmy, we were still booted from the restaurant before we were finished with our evening. Despite our great displeasure, we were still asked to pay our entire bill, which was hundreds of dollars. My husband and I are Arab, his brothers and cousin are all Arab, and we will all raise large Arab families in Atlanta. Had we not been treated so very, very poorly, we would have returned many times, together and individually. However, because we feel mistreated and embarrassed, Divan has now forfieted thousands of our dollars in future revenue. So, if your looking to be rushed through expensive cuisine and the thrown into the street (and in our case, rain), then Divan is the place for you.
Sexy in the City...Very nice chic spot for birthdays, GNO, or just something simply different from the norm. Visited Divan's with our monthly restaurant group. Although the group was a little hesitant being that this is a "Hookah Lounge" and no one in our group had ever tried a hookah before-we had a blast (try the cocktail flavored hookah). The drinks were awesome, the food was great (had the shish kabobs which were seasoned to perfection) and the setting was perfect. If you have not visited this spot yet, definitely add this to your 2011 to-do-list. Great spot to take out of town guest-sure they will not be disappointed.
Divan is fabulous! – I go to Divan at least once a week. My girlfriends and I really enjoy the food and the bartender, Lala, makes incredible drinks! The atmosphere is fun and social. Try the Sangria that Lala makes. It's delicious!!
Cool place – I went there with friends and I greatly enjoyed this place. The food was great, hookahs are very entertaining.
Romantic and fun – What a fun place, my wife and I always eat at Divan. I love the atmosphere. It reminds me of a small version of Buddha Bar. It is cozy and very romantic. The food is superb and the service is great.
Great place for relaxing – Who knew Buckhead was so cool!!!? From the second we walked in the door, Divan reminded us of cool spots of San Francisco. This place has a very cool vibe, it is upscale, and has excellent food and service. The host was also extremely nice and friendly. We didn't have a reservation. And, he tried to get us a table on a busy Saturday night. We had to wait about an hour for our table. The host brought us a couple of drinks on the house which was a very nice gesture.
Overall I intend to go back there soon. Of course, I will make a reservation ahead next time.
AWESOME place! – I frequent Divan because it is such a cool place! I was there last saturday with a group and everyone had a great time! The waitresses are not only attractive but extremely helpful, we had different girls check on us several times throughout the evening even though we werent their table. The food is amazing, the kabobs are reasonable and good portions, deserts are incredible.
I found that when ONE disgruntal guest has a semi bad experience they will lash out like the prior reviews.....its probably the same person writing over and over again.
YES, there is a dress code, but come on, this is a nice place and most places like this will not let you in with shorts and flip flops and it seems people would know that if they are going out on a special occasion. The staff is amazing, they will sit at your table and talk to your whole group about whatever is going on, they will even give you their personal numbers to call them directly next time you want to come in and reserve a table!
