A wonderful little gem in downtown Wheaton just 2 blocks from the Metra. Serving delicious, homemade dishes using preservative free ingredients and hormone/anti-biotic free beef, pork, bison, chicken and eggs. Fresh fish featured weekly, live music every Monday night, a great wine list and quaint sidewalk dining with alcohol service. We buy from businesses within our community, or from small businesses who are an integral part of their communities and try to have a positive impact on their environment. Opened in 2007, this husband & wife owned restaurant was nominated for Restaurant of the Year in 2010. You will be impressed with the ambiance of the small dining room, the personal, attentive service by the wait staff and the delicious menu options.

<br />Welcome to D.O.C Wine Bar - Lombard. We are elated to serve you as your neighborhood wine bar and bistro. We believe that wine is the "nectar of the gods" and should be enjoyed by all, novices and connoisseurs alike. <br /><br><br><br />While we take what we do seriously, first and foremost, we believe drinking wine should be fun. It is our goal to offer a large variety of wine spanning the globe without any of the factors that may cause intimidation and hinder your enjoyment.<br /><br><br><br />Established in 1963 and implemented in 1966, the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) ("Controlled Denomination of Origin") is Italy's equivalent to France's APPELLATION D'ORIGINE CONTRÔLÉE. DOC's are defined by the geographic area of production for each wine, the varieties that can be used, the minimum alcohol content, the maximum yield, and the specifications for aging.

"My Wife & I have dined at DOC dozens of times and usually simply walk in. On this occasion we decided to book a table through Open Table, wish we had not. When initially greeted the Hostess grabbed two menus and headed into the dining room, until I mentioned our Open Table reservation. At this point the Hostess turned back from the dining room and ushered us into the back room. The back room is ok however we were the only people in the entire room while 2/3 of the tables in the dining room remained empty.
Very odd experience...felt like Lepers."

"This was our first visit and while the food was authentic and delicious the service was lack-luster at best. From our initial greeting by the Hostesses to our Waiter we were disappointed."

Zapatista offers authentic Mexican cuisine with a multitude of flavors. Diners will appreciate the rustic atmosphere and warm décor. Favorite dishes include made to order guacamole and fajitas cooked tableside in a lava stone molcajete. Al fresco dining available seating over 175 people including a beautiful fire pit.

"While the service, food and ambiance were all acceptable or ok nothing about experience was outstanding. There are better options in town for Mexican, the one advantage here is that you can get a table."
