Best Restaurant and staff in town. So Sad to see it close.
Had to get one more last lunch at Divino before they close their doors. Sad to see them go.
Apparently they're closing this Saturday. Very sad news
Last meal at my favourite restaurant. You will be missed.
Excellent wine list. Ordered cheese sampler with wine - very, very good. The only negative was them having no patio room, but that is really not their fault. I did not care much for the interior hence 4-4.5 stars.
Divino's is one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary. Sorry to hear that they are closing down.
We had our wedding here one year ago and they were so easy to work with and very proffessional. The food was delicious and the upstairs was the perfect venue for our cocktail celebration . We came to celebrate our First anniversary and were treated like King and Queen. A very special thank you to Simone for our " gift" . Xoxo
My favorite place in Calgary.
We went there for a birthday, and noted it in the reservation. Not sure the pint of that as it was not acknowledged, not even a happy bday...lol. Food was decent, the portion that was not spilled on me. Also a little mishap with changing tables. Not terrible but probably would not return as there are much better choices out there.
A good experience for light dining with excellent shared plates available. a solid (but predictable) wine list. Well informed and helpful service.
One of my favourite destinations on Stephen Avenue.
Delicious charcuterie board, great atmosphere and impressive wine selection.
It was alright. Wasn't blown away. There wasn't much too it. Was nice but I probably wouldn't return
One of my favourite spots downtown. Good selection=menu options and excellent service.
Not the first time at Divino, at as previous opportunities, Service and Food did not disappoint. Great job there! On the drinks side, while the wine list is very good, the cocktail offer is poor, overly expensive and drinks are dull. So you better go for wine form the start, instead of expending your monies on cocktails.The restaurant itself looks a little tired and it would require some improvements, though. Looks old.
We can't say enough about our 40th anniversary dinner visit at Divini. From the moment we walked we were welcomed and made to feel very special! Our waiter was very knowledgeable and even had the Bartender craft a special cocktail for me when I didn't really see what I wanted on the bar menu.
We took our time all evening and never felt rushed.
The charcuterie starter was amazing and our mains is duck breadt and AAA steak were over the top delicious.
We arrived at 5:30 and when we left at 8:00 it was just starting to get a little loud but in a busy, fun way.
We can't recommend Divini more highly and will be back soon!
We will truly miss you ! One if the best restaurants and gem in our city .
All the best to your staff in finding new homes and hope you start up again !
Always one of our favourite places in Calgary. Great food, service and such an amazing wine list.
Good food but seriously small servings. I left the restaurant hungry
Pasta was really good but small portion and I'm not a big eater.
This is one of my favorite restaurant in Calgary and I am never disappointed.
The food was good but don't think it quite warrants the prices . I object to paying 2 dollars for water when we are buying an expensive meal and expensive wine .
Been here a handful of times already and the food is always great. Cheese selections are awesome and go well with just about any wine.
Divino is a favorite of mine. They serve great food, have a wonderful terrace and ambiance and their servers really know how to make you feel comfortable and well-looked after. Their wine selection, which varies regularly, is also outstanding. Had amazing moules and frittes paired with an amazing Viognier that our waitress recommended and could not have been happier. She was attentive, very knowledgeable and friendly and ensured our meal was served quickly as we were limited in time. Thank you for helping make our night special!
This is my sisters favourite restaurant but my first visit. I can see why she loves it! Our server was so friendly and very knowledgeable. She described the food so accurately. The choose your own cheese plate was so amazing. The rest of our food was just as good. I highly recommend this place.
Love sitting on their small but energetic patio on the vibrant Stephen Avenue. Great good, great service and killer Wine selections.
We have enjoyed Divino pre theatre for several years. They have maintained good quality and service backed by a kitchen that cares about their products. The menu is updated often enough to feel fresh and is creative without being overly trendy.
Lots of good choices and unique in choice of ingredients and compositions. Unfortunately the 'suckling pig' was well, well, well done and tough, as was the ?bacon. The other meals were pretty good, aperitifs were very creative, wine choices were wonderful.
Good atmosphere, somewhat attentive service, and sometimes one wonders, if the price goes up, wether indeed the service should be more excelling than it did.
Love this place
Fantastic food the Servers were very friendly. Great location on 8Th AVE SW
Food was excellent. Ambiance great. Service ok. And wine list very pricey. A decent bottle of Chardonnay should NOT start at $100. I still don't think downtown Calgary restaurants have grasped the current economic situation.
This was a birthday dinner with my husband--our waitress was excellent!!Food was delicious! The tartare(bison??)was melt in your mouth and deliciously seasoned--the lamb was tender--however I felt the accompanying green vegetable was overspiced--(I would of preferred less heat ) My husband and I would definitely return!!The cheese and wine selection we're unsurpassed.The somnolier knowledgeable and gracious.
The food, the wine, the service were all top notch. Will be back.
Food was fantastic. Wine list is great!! Server wasn't very friendly and it seemed as though we were an inconvenience. Perhaps because 3 of 4 of us did the Calgary Taste Menu? We will be back regardless, we love Devino.
Delicious meal and lovely wine pairings but generally overpriced.
Excellent ambiance and service. The food was fantastic as well.
As good as always. Went for the BigTasteYYC. Awesome menu, attentive service, what a treat. They never disappoint.
Great food and service. Will definitely come back again.
The food and service was exceptional. The menu was a little limited, however, it did cover most bases. The staff worked with us on a gluten free option.
Our server was very good. The Tempura green beans are amazing. The rest of the food was average at best, the risotto that came with the salmon was very under cooked.
