Excellent – We had our holiday party for work at D'Vine this year and it was spectacular! The staff was very helpful in planning the event (relatively small, approx. 23 people) and gave great service that evening (a Tuesday in late December). The food was really delicious and the wine selection is hard to beat. We used the little room off to the side which was very cozy and perfect for a group our size, still had enough room to move around. I highly recommend D'Vine for any small social gathering or just to stop in and have a great glass of wine. Nice selection of appetisers too. Enjoy~
WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE! – My wife and I visited Cleveland for the first time last weekend and walked in to D'Vine for dinner. It was 8:00 on a Saturday night and we sat out on the patio. Dawn came over to us and was very personable and friendly. We were very impressed with the wine and beer selection and LOVED the flights menu! My wife got the "Award-Winning Whites" flight and I started with a Paulaner Hefeweizen. We then ordered the Calamari, the Trio of Dips and the Bruschetta. All three plates were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! No salt or pepper needed on the table at all! We then talked briefly with another server, Scott, and realized that everyone at D'Vine worked together to make sure that the guests came FIRST. My wife has, and I do, work in the restaurant business and we were both VERY pleased with this dining experience. We asked to speak to the manager, Tracy, so we could thank her and her staff for everything. I'm not sure when I'll be returning to Cleveland, but I DO know where I will eat as soon as I get there!
Terrific Ladies Night! – Great specials for ladies every Thursday from 4:00 till 8:00. A great selection of half price wines, beers and cocktails as well as half price menu items. The baked brie is sinful! I always appreciate the service staff and their accomodating nature. If you have not been to D'Vine it is a must visit for any of their happy hour specials or for a great night out with the girls!
A best for Cleveland but clearly not the best. – We have been living in Cleveland for a few months after spending a lot of time in Europe and tried D'Vine for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised by the extensive wine menu. The flights we ordered were very well thought out. I had a flight of Cabs and my guest had a flight of sparkling whites. Each of the flights gave a wide range of what each wine type had to offer. The flight of cabs had a mixture of berry, prune, tannic, etc. My guest is not a fan of reds and even she marveled at the fact that her unititiated nose could discern the difference. On the down side, two of the "sparkling wines" were brought to the table flat. The waiter quickly corrected it explaining that the sparklings sometimes are flat. (I did wonder, since he returned so quickly, if the fizz was regenerated by a bit of sugar or if they actually opened two new bottles).
We also had a pizza (hand formed and backed to perfection) and "tapas." (I am including quotes because these dishes bear little resemblance to the tapas of Spain). The "tapas" were large and filling. Not to be missed is the baked macaroni with lobster.
For desert we ordered the choclate pizza which was fun and a moscato with a bit of the smell of a musty cork. I was very disappointed in the moscato.
Given the effort the owners have made this establishment have a European flair I was a bit disappointed with the service. The waiter was chatty and spent way too much time at our table. He brought the "sparkling wines" without sparkle. And in addition, and I may be spoiled by European service, the check was brought to our table before we asked for it and even worse, before we were finished with our food and drinks.
Great place to be and be seen! – One of my favorite places to go. Great food, great service, and great drinks. A staple in downtown Cleveland.
D'Vine is more than Best Wine List – With 60 plus wines by the glass and 16 flights of wine available I see how D'Vine won Best Wine List in Cleveland Magazine. Unlike the other wine bars in the area they offer an amazing cocktail list, they make this martini called a Sparkling Strawberry that is simple and delicious. I had a cucumber infused martini this past weekend that is perfect for sipping on their patio. Offering food until 1:00AM means they have the best late night menu Downtown. The service staff does a nice job and the owners are not above cleaning tables and sweeping the floor so I highly recommend visiting D'Vine Wine Bar!
Service needs HELP. – I've been to D'Vine twice in the last two weeks. I like the menu and the atmostphere but the service leaves much to be desired. On my first visit, my friend and I made it clear that we were there only for drinks. We ordered a bottle of wine and were enjoying ourselves until we were repeatedly interrupted by various wait staff (3 different servers) inquiring if we would like to order food. We would have really liked to stay for a second bottle but we felt very rushed and it was obvious they were eyeing our every move which didn't make for a very relaxed or enjoyable time. My second visit was nearly the opposite. I was ignored by both the bartender and the waiter upon entering the restaurant. It was early in the evening so the place was barely occupied, but the waiter seemed to be consumed by lighting the candles on the tables. When I asked for a table he said I could sit wherever I wanted. I expressed that I was in a hurry and he sauntered over to the computer to slowly enter my order before placing my bill on the table without uttering a word to me or delivering my drinks. Pretty rude. I tipped this person on principal alone because he certainly didn't deserve a dime. I was never once greeted by an employee nor thanked nor even acknowledged aside from my own asking for a table and a beverage. My waiter didn't even manage to thank me when returning my credit card. Not very classy.
A Good Drink – I ordered a Ketel One & soda and for the first time a long while I had a real drink. Charlie, the bartender that evening, let me know that their standard pour is 2 ounces. Much better than the ounce to once and a quarter standard pour used at the neighboring places. I recommend visiting D'vine.
Thanks for a difference – A great place for a difference located in the Warehouse District of Cleveland. I spend a few days a month in Cleveland on business and I often patronize D'Vine Wine Bar. The menu is a nice Tapas inspired menu with some can?t miss items be sure to try the Baked Brie. Charlie and Deborah always take great care of me with genuinely personal service. The wine list is ever improving with variety.
Amazing Tapas! – This bar is one of my favorites in the warehouse district! The wine list is very extensive and it changes every season. This bar features their appetizers or tapas which are little plates that people can share. My friends and I love the brushetta with pesto and the pizzas are good too. I highly recommend D'vine after work with friends on Wednsdays for half off wine flights.
