DOC Wine Bar - Lombard
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!
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!
This place never disappoints. They have a good selection of food and great wine.
Thank you for the review and feedback!
The food was excellent. Crab cakes nicely seasoned and they melted in your mouth. Will be returning.
Thank you! Looking forward to seeing you again, soon!
Excellent wine selection, charcuterie board never disappoints. We always enjoy a date night out here.
Thank you for the review! Please come see us again, soon!
It’s always a great time with a friend when I come here. Food is always great! I’ve brought several people here and always had a great meal.
Hi Tina, thank you for the feedback and review!
We enjoy coming on Friday nights and sitting in booth in bar area. Wine selection is good. We usually split a couple of shareables. Sign up for the 4 star program
Thanks, Windycitygirl! Did you know that you can also earn points for referring friends to sign up for our 4 Star Rewards Program?
Can't review the noise level as this was a late lunch - the food was outstanding. My friend and I each had a filet slider and a salmon slider - both outstanding. Can't really say much else - nice decor, friendly server and hostess! I'm assuming much more energy in the evening or for a more normally timed lunch, not just prior to a holiday. We were there July 3rd.
HarryS, thank you for the review! Glad that you enjoyed your experience with us! Please come see us again, soon.
Have loved this place for 10 years
Dined and also hosted 2 special events here
Food always amazing
This time our server Amber spoiled the experience tho Not like the usual great servers we have had Acted like she was going out of her way just to do her job Could have done without the eye rolling when we weren’t ready to order or only got one dessert
Hi Martha, we appreciate the review + feedback. We love to hear that you've had great experiences with us in the past, but hate to hear that your service was such a disappointment. We pride ourselves on superior service and great food in a family-friendly atmosphere and we definitely dropped the ball this time around. I'll be speaking with the manager to ensure that this isn't an ongoing issue with any of our team members. Please feel free to reach out with any additional comments. Thanks, Tony
Excellent food and service. Have had the butchers block, bistro burger, flatbread, Cuban and all have been excellent.
Thanks, TomO! The Butcher's Block is definitely a fan favorite! See you again, soon!
I’ve always loved DOC since living is the city. I haven’t eaten there in a couple years. The cheese platter is always my favorite. It was completely plain with no extras and the meat was really warm. Yuck.
Good morning, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We hate to hear that your cheese platter was a disappointment. We aim to provide the the highest-quality service and food and looks like we dropped the ball and for that I am sorry. We've passed your notes to the manager to ensure that this isn't an ongoing problem. Please feel free to send us any additional feedback about your recent visit, we would love to keep you in our family of restaurants. Thank you, Tony.
Loved the extensive appetizer menu. Food was very fresh and tasty! Enjoyed the great choice of wine flights also.
Thanks, Mimala for the review!
Great food and excellent wine list. the filet sliders are awesome.
Thank you, PittVisitor!
Food and drinks were very good! We happen to be seated next to a table that had three people screaming at each other during their entire dinner until one of them got up and walked out. It was very distracting.
Lovely & great service. Great food, wine and our waiter was amazing!
Thanks, LynnC! We love to hear that you had a great experience with us!
Rock star service
Thx for making our anniversary a great time.
Thanks for the review! Happy Anniversary!
Bree is an amazing server who pays attention to every detail, and her manager, Mike, went out of his way to help celebrate our anniversary with champagne and desert. This was on the house, and they didn't have to do it, but they both went above and beyond to make our day special. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
We'll definitely be back! We love D.O.C.
Love the variety of cheeses. Consistently good service, and it is almost always quiet enough to have a conversation with your friends.
Upon entering there was a smell of smoke and could see it in the air, must have ventilation issues. The hostess replied to my questioning of this, saying she was used to it. We were seated immediately and ordered a half bottle of wine, pricey for 1 1/4 glasses a piece. My boyfriend had the chicken, which was tasty, but I had a salad which was very bland and somewhat wet. The wait staff was very attentive but almost to the point of being rushed and annoying. I might go back and try just the starters with a glass of wine and sit outside, where there is no smoke! But, would not highly recommend this place.
Food and wine was great as always. Server looked a bit lost but was nice a guy. When I asked him what kind of rose you guys had he had to flip throug the menu for a few mins.... Also, he could've come by a bit more asking us if we wanted more to drink... we had to ask a few times for more water and wine.
Nice place for lunch, business lunch or light dinner. Love the butcher block samples (two sizes) and in good weather, outside dining is enjoyable.
Great wine choices, knowledgeable staff, great service, food options were excellent and delicious. Will definitely be back
Fantastic food, the bruschetta's were amazing. Went for Mothers Day, everything we had was delicious. Will definitely be going back.
The restaurant was warm and friendly from the surroundings to the staff. Service was top notch! Our waitress was very pleasant and offered some suggestions on popular dishes. Excellent variety of food choices. The wine list is quite extensive and fairly priced. Definitely will return!
Our waiter was very attentive with his service and made sure we sat somewhere comfortable for our group.
Super tasty food and great service. Filet trio and grilled cheese were delicious. Thanks
Was beautiful inside and hostess and waitress were both amazing! Staff bringing out the food seemed very rush and were handing out our food to other tables. We ordered the meat and cheese board and yes priced really great but portions were tiny and not at all what we all excepted. Food was ok but have had way better elsewhere where prices were comparable.
Restaurant was quite loud with a loud drunk woman nearby that might have skewed our review. Wine list by the glass was long, but our waitress didn’t offer much advice other than offering a sample. Food was very good but it took a very long time to come out of the kitchen.
I love DOC. Food is great and service is always great. Their dates, flatbread and wrightwood salad are always our staple meal for lunch.
We liked the new decor. We were there celebrating a birthday and noted it on the reservation, but I was not acknowledged by the waitstaff.
Superb service and top notch food!!! Never disappoints!
This is a beautiful little spot for some wine and dinner. The service was amazing! I would recommend making reservations as it fills up quickly!
Great food, good service, nice vibe! I enjoyed the Tony's Rigatoni. Tasty!
Always good food but disappointed the steak with butter was taken off the menu and replaced with one with an orange and mushroom combo. I didn’t try it but wish they would’ve kept the steak frites.
Beware if you don’t drink wine, other cocktail were $13 each!
An awesome experience! In the sea of dining options in the mall/shopping area, WOC felt like an oasis. I dined on a Wednesday evening and had my pick of seating at the bar or a table. As a party of 1, I opted for the bar.
The menu was not overly large and offered interesting takes on several dishes. I opted for the burger and fries along with the salad appetizer. I can say the description of the burger on the menu piqued my interest and did not disappoint. It was one of the better burgers that I have had for certain. I also considered the calamari, rigatoni and charcuterie board as all seemed delicious.
Service at the bar was friendly and top notch. The manager or owner was also very visible and checked in on my dining experience as well.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and may dine there again tonight!
