DOC Wine Bar - Lombard
I haven't been to DOC in several years because I moved out of the area. I decided to take friends to the restaurant since I was in town. We ordered an appetizer and entrees. The appetizer came out 5 minutes after we ordered it, and it just tasted like it had been sitting in the kitchen all day. Bland and not fresh at all. All our entrees came out luke warm and not hot at all. The Server was excellent and tried to remedy the situation by replacing the warm soup with hot soup. The food was just basically lousy. The Chef obviously did not care what he was serving from his kitchen. Too bad because this place use to be really good. If it wasn't for the excellent Server and decent bottle of wine, I would have given this place 1 star. The reataurant was only a 1/4 full on a Friday evening. No chance that any of us will be back.
Overall, It was just O.K. The wine is way overpriced, and the food was fair, nothing special.
We appreciate the feedback, nas22. You'll have to come visit us for Sunday - Tuesday for our daily wine specials!
Excellent food for reasonable prices! Try the ricotta and pistachio bruschetta and the Wrightwood chicken salad (get the dressing on the side)
Thank you, NC999! We appreciate the feedback and review!
Great choice for quiet conversation. Excellent food and of course wine!
Love this restaurant. If you like wine, you are in luck. They offer several options of wine flights, so you can try several wines before you decide on a bottle. They also have a great selection of cheeses, “meats”, and bruschetta to make a charcuterie plate, in addition to their regular menu. The service is always great, and they don’t rush you through your meal. Great location as well.
Thank you, Alex! We appreciate the review! Please come see us again, soon.
12th Anniversary of DOC’s
Thanks for celebrating with us, DBizzle!
The best charcuterie boards ever!
We love to hear that, SallyS! Thank you!
I have been here numerous times and really enjoy the food and wine! Food is delicious, never been disappointed! Wine list is great!
Great venue to meet friends and enjoy some really good wine and appetizers
Thank you, Paty!
I think the service could be a bit faster, but in general it is all good. Bring back the AHI Sliders!
Thanks, Alice! We'll let our culinary team know :)
Come for the wine, stay for the food!!! 1/2 off bottle Monday was why we went...but the food was equally as good! Highly recommend the Brussels sprout flatbread.
First time and loved it! Good food, wide variety of wines and great service!
Service was good and food was excellent.
Great service and food. Wine list is decent. Red rock cheese on the cheeseboard was awesome!
We appreciate the review, LMFoodie!
Went on “half price bottle of wine” Monday night. Not busy at all. Food was great. Our sever was knowledgeable about the wines and did not rush us out.
Sunday Afternoon lunch was relaxed and just what my daughter and I needed. The food was delicious and our server could not have been more attentive. The kids menu and ice cream that came with all kids menu orders was perfect to keep my 2 year old grandchild happy.
Thank you, VIC54!
will definitely return! Had the small butcher block app wish we had ordered the large. Fabulous selection of meats, cheeses and bruschetta choices.
Wine selection had a nice variety from different regions and within different price points.
Thank you, PJCP! We love to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us!
Great place. Good food, great ambiance. A regular place in our rotation. Food prices can be reasonable, if you choose wisely, but wine and cocktail prices are on the high side for sure.
MichaelP, thank you for the review! You'll have to come see us next time for our specials: SUNDAY 1/2 price wine flights MONDAY 1/2 price bottles of wine TUESDAY 1/2 price glasses of wine
Met up with one of my girl friends that I haven’t seen in a while and our server was very sweet and patient since we were very chatty and made sure we were always okay. Good service!
Thank you for the review, MichelleG!
This was our second time eating at DOC Wine Bar. Our first experience was fantastic. The food was great and our server was so much fun. I assumed we would get the same experience again.
I made reservations for a Sunday night. The restaurant was pretty empty and quiet. Our server from the first visit was working the bar and we ended up with the manager. He seemed very disinterested in taking our order and seemed annoyed that we were eating there in the first place.
The food was fine, but the overall experience made it unenjoyable.
We appreciate the feedback and review and will be sharing your comments with our team to ensure that service always remains top-priority.
Finally made it there. We were a little late for our reservation due to some inclement weather. Great experience
We love to hear that you enjoyed your experience, RobertA! Thank you for the review.
The restaurant was very dirty. From the entrance by the hostess stand all the way to our table, the floor was filthy with food and leaves from outside. It looked like they hadn’t vacuumed or swept in days. I won’t be going back.
Restaurant has a very cool vibe inside, great decor. The butcher block appetizer was tasty and the crab cakes were incredible. Probably the best I have ever had. Would absolutely recommend as place to go with friends or on a date.
One of my favorite places to eat!
Had a great time. Only downside was we had to wait about 25 minutes to be seated and we had a reservation
We appreciate the review and feedback. Thank you for being patient with us during your wait.
I came with a small group to celebrate a friends birthday. Service was good but I wish there was more of a variety on the menu.
CherylM, thank you!
Garrett was our server and he was fantastic. Made it fun! Should we go back I would definitely request him again.
We love to hear that, Julie! Looking forward to seeing you again, soon!
Girl's night out with great food, great wine and great conversation!
Thank you, DonnaH!
Lots of good choices for cheese boards. The wine flights are nice too. We had a very pleasant and attentive waitress.
Thank you, LanaM!
One of our favorite places for date night! Great food and great service!
Love their wine. Great place for girls night!
Thank you, CynthiaM!
The restaurant manger did not stop by to see if our meal was good...the waitress only came by to drop the food but did not check if our meal was right which was not. Very disappointing since it was not our first time @ DOC.
We appreciate the review, irisrivera. We hate to hear that you were disappointed with your recent experience. We pride ourselves on superior service and delicious food in a friendly-neighborhood environment and it sounds like we dropped the ball and for that I apologize. I will be speaking with our team to ensure that the service points you mentioned do not become an ongoing issue. Please feel free to reach out with any additional comments or feedback on how we can improve your experience.
Our first time. Love the wine flight. Great way to try before ordering a bottle, which we did. Butcher charcuterie, great appetizer because we each picked something that was delicious. Two if us had the sliders, another the panini. I had the rigatoni. All of us pleased with our meal. Felt like we were in a very small intimate club-like environment. Would highly recommend!
Hi Amber, we love to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit with us. Please come see us again, soon!
Nice location. The butchers platter was excellent, enjoyed the Cuban sandwich we shared, and had an overall good experience. Will be going back, might become our pre-theater restaurant of choice.
Sndcj1, thank you for the review and feedback! We would love to see you again, soon!
As I would expect the wine selection was pretty good and I enjoyed my selection, the Cabernet from California. Food was just a little off and I can’t tell you exactly why but both of us felt that it was a little bit like food that wasn’t real.
Maybe we’re spoiled – we’d just had a weekend in Chicago at super wonderful restaurants, and this is more of a chain, but honestly this was pretty average. It wasn’t horrible. Salmon was average. Flat bread was good but not amazing. I was surprised that they served sliced tomato with the salmon entree - that reminded me of the slices you would get on a burger. It was all OK. That’s all I can tell you – food is pretty good to OK and wine is good and I love sitting outside and looking at the sunset and ignoring the parking lot… My waitress was fabulous and all the service was wonderful. There’s not much else I can say. It’s a chain. But if you want to fill your belly and not have a bad experience, and you feel like having a nice glass of wine and sitting outside, or sitting in a highly air-conditioned inner-restaurant with a nice bathroom – this is it!
Hi katzbro, we appreciate the review and feedback.
Love DOC Wine Bar! Great food and service!
Thank you, lpreview! We love to hear that !
The variety & quality of food is always so good at DOC Wine Bar. Flat breads are great & the Fried Brie as well as one of our favorites, filet sliders, were perfect. Our waitress was efficient and so friendly. Wish I could remember her name. What a wonderful experience!
Hi LynL, thank you for the review and feedback.
Wine Flights run between 20-30 which isn’t a bad deal. Butchers board has a great selection of meats and cheeses and the banana beignets were great.
Thank you for the review and feedback. We hope to see you again, soon!
Excellent as always!
