<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 filet was cooked to perfection medium rare with a wonderful tasty char on the surface per my detailed request. Wines by the glass were deelish and I asked the bartender for a Vieux Carre complicated martini and she figured it out and made a delicious one with a smile on her face. This restrnt is awesome."

Spending an evening at The Bank is like having an unforgettable dinner party at your best friend’s house. Delectable food, great wine, pleasant conversation, sparkling laughter and the soft clink of silver, china & glass. Home away from home – relaxed, friendly, but with the bonus of smart, attentive staff.

There is over 2500 square feet of edible produce and herbs which is incorporated into all of our dishes and cocktails. <br /><br />The light-filled second-floor interior air-conditioned room at Homestead features an additional 60 seats at tables and another 12 seats at the bar.

"Interesting cocktails didn't show up until after appetizers were served. Specialty cheese with sweet crunch exterior was fun appetizer. Tagliatelle was super mushy and way too salty. Corn "ravioli" specialty was also mushy but tasty. Duct two ways "confit leg" had us expecting the crispy skin classic, but the leg meat had been pulled into shreds off the bone to be different- waaaaaa we wanted the crispy skin! The duck breast along side it was cooked to perfection. Fun place but the dishes and service timing are rough around the edges."

"Great service, we had the fun red/white wine flight and each individual bottle was brought to the table and the wine was introduced to us in interesting fashion. Best bread in the world, even better than French baguettes! Both my wife and I loved our entrees. Classy place."
