Devine Food & Wine
Devine is the spot to find tapas, Italian-inspired a la carte and an excellent wine by the glass selection. Long known for it’s popular lunches and after work eats, you’ll see the hustle and bustle of the city coming in to wind down; sinking into the banquettes or sitting up at the bar with some share plates.
Freshly shucked Sydney Rock Oysters, zucchini flowers and artisan salumi boards might be the best way to start. Then any of the daily house made pastas, market fresh fish of the day, or the Wagyu Steak are all too satisfying to ignore.
There are over 400 wines on the list at Devine - with 40 available by the glass! European grape varieties and producers are the specialty.
At just a stone’s throw from Darling Harbour too, Devine is a must for corporate meals and family celebrations

Our waitress couldn't wait to end our dinner. She was asking for drinks orders before we sat down!
Table was set for 8 as booked, and she told us we couldn't sit as set up, due covid, took one chair and offered no alternative.
Fish served partially raw and when it was brought to her attention she laughed at us, took the plate and said nothing more.
Really rude and just didn't care.
Very good food and service. Would definitely recommend decent value for business lunch
We sat in the back of the restaurant, good atmosphere, good food & service. Good for business lunches. I would imagine it is nice in the evening for couples and friends.
As always great wine where the staff is familiar with the wine and the food. Perfect if you would like to take a longer lunch, enjoy the food and have someone recommend that wine to go with your conversation.
2 hat quality food at very reasonable prices. Excellent wine selection and assistance. The environment is relaxed but refined. Love it.
One of the top restaurants in Sydney. Amazing food, wine and service.
Really enjoyed our dinner there. Taking someone I care about to dinner there, I couldn't have asked for a better restaurant. I will definitely be recommending De Vine to friends and family
Dear RadE, Sincere thanks for such a lovely heartfelt review! We look forward to welcoming you soon!
Terrific staff both enthusiastic experts and polite friends ;-)

Dear Fredee, Cheers for the endorsement, we couldn't agree more!
Excellent as usual. Good food, friendly staff & service and an excellent by-the-glass wine list.

Great restaurant. The location and the decor of the restaurant is lovely. Food is wonderful but what differentiates it even further is the great service. The welcome to the restaurant friendly and professional.
Hi Bella, We're so pleased you enjoyed your experience with us and really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review!
Love coming here for a sneaky Friday long lunch! The restaurant area has a great ambiance. Excellent food and drinks menu with great service. There is a wine bar at the front as well if you want something a little more casual. Enormous wine list with something for everyone. Looking forward to the next visit!
Hi there TCSYD77, We couldn't agree more with your comments and are privileged to have such wonderful guests like you. Grazie!
Great place to catch up for a drink and a bite to eat and close to public transport
This classic venue is s great place to catch up for a drink, snack or meal, great wine list, nice short food list that works for sharing. Best of all it is possible to hear!!
As per our previous visits it was a great experience, strongly recommend to all looking for a great experience.
Great food, excellent wine list and helpful attentive staff. I reallyenjoyed it and would recommend to anyone.
Great place to dine! Would go back. Lovely food, wine and staff.
Excellent food and service. Great to see the restaurant keeping up the Covid safe standards as well
Highly recommend this restaurant. Food was amazing and will definitely be back.
Good spot, scallops entree perfection, risotto main also delicious. Octopus inedible but there was no problem having it taken off the bill. Nice ambience, wine list needs improvement and is a little overpriced but overall would return.
Hi Terri, thanks for your review and sorry about the octopus. As a requirement to be Covid compliant with disposable menu's, we have designed a short listing of wines as a reference and in addition we have a much broader selection of wines on our main list which is available for anyone to peruse. We hope to see you again soon.
Very acceptable. A touch expensive, but would go back.
Delicious food and exceptional staff. The food was brought out very quickly but was expertly cooked. A good wine list with a wide range.
The cocktail menu seemed small but the wait staff offered custom cocktails without prompting.
Sincere thanks for the positive review. You are right about our cocktail menu. Normally, we have over 15 cocktails to choose from however at the moment we are focusing on 5 different cocktails a month whilst we reboot post Covid. And yes, we will make anything you desire so long as we have the ingredients!
Lovely meal, professional & friendly service. Have gone passed on the bus to & from work, was working over weekend and had a chance to dine. We'll worth it & can't wait to come back.
Thanks Bradley, we appreciate you trying us out and are delighted we met your expectations!
Had a lovely meal with my sisters. Food was lovely, the ragun was lovely. The staff were very attentive and made our evening even more enjoyable. Would definitely go back.
Thanks Janine - we're glad you enjoyed our ragu matched with out attentive service. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The beetroot risotto was to die for; the service, as always, was fantastic.
Cheers Louise. You're always welcome!

average food, but service was good if a little overly attentive.
Hi JPS, Thanks for the review. Sorry if you think we were overly attentive. We're here to make sure you get just the right amount of excellent service, every time.
Beautiful food in a cosy and romantic setting. Great service also! Would definitely come back :)
Thanks you Claire! We appreciate your review and thanks you for supporting us post Covid. See you again soon.
Amazing food, great service, wonderful experience and social distancing laws observed. I felt very safe and comfortable at Devine. Thank you for a great evening.
Thanks Naomi, We take social distancing, venue hygiene and customer safety very seriously, so much so we are now a NSW accredited Covid Safe Venue. Thanks for dining with us and we hope to see you again soon.
How good is it to eat out again??? De Vine was a great choice for dinner. The staff were friendly and helpful especially organising affogato as a request for my son’s dessert. We shared entrees (octopus, meatballs and antipasto) and then had lamb shoulder and barramundi. Everything was delicious. We had a lovely meal and will be back for dinner as well as the wine bar.
Hello there, We really thank you for coming in last week. It was great fun looking after your family and thank you for allowing us to provide the wine recommendation which we are pleased you really enjoyed. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Excellent service and top quality food / wine selection.
Always great here. Food is delicious and friendly service. Cocktails are lovely!
