    Overall beautiful ambience and cool aesthetics! Harry Potter-esque/Prohibition era vibes. Pretty spacious for a speakeasy. Recommend making a reservation; seated for ~90 minutes because it was popular! Huge selection of drinks and appreciate the menu organizing drinks by taste/boldness. Friend and I had Sakura Vespar and Violet Beauregard - so light, refreshing and well-balanced. As for service, it was subpar. Understand they’re very busy so we waited awhile until we got our drink orders in. Could’ve read into it a bit, but perceived “stand-off ish” and not-as-friendly vibes from bar staff.

    Absolutely beautiful place! We had a ton of fun, the cocktails were spectacular. I felt the music was a little too loud to have a conversation around, but that's just me being nitpicky. It was a blast and I can hardly wait to go back again!

    Listen. If you are a paycheck to paycheck type, this may not be your scene. Or it would be for a special occasion. Yes, it is spendy. That said, the craft cocktails are outstanding. The food is outstanding. The service is exceptional. The ambience is delightful. I can't justify making this a regular haunt or I'll go broke, BUT I will certainly go back when I want to treat myself to some exquisite socializing. It really does live up to the hype.

    We had a truly excellent experience at Deep Dive for our 3rd anniversary. Evan and Gomez helped make the night incredibly memorable. At first I was skeptical of being seated at the bar for our anniversary, but we loved chatting with Gomez and absorbing his expertise. The cocktails were top notch and the plates were way more filling and richer than I expected. I hope to be back again!

    The Deep Dive crew continues to impress. Their bartending staff knocks it out of the park, and the host (whose knowledge of the menu revealed he was much more than just a host) is a true asset. Deep Dive is an artisanal bar, with a drink menu that makes one imagine another place or time… truly magical. And the purposeful lighting throughout the bar is award-winning.

    We enjoyed trio cheese, jamon, focaccia. Probably didn’t need the focaccia. Was disappointed in the overall service. Had to eye a server to get our 2nd round of $20each drinks. Water poured twice w/ a mess. Server didn’t clean it up. Kali, Evan, & Ramon heard my disappointment. Tried to make it better. I appreciate their efforts. It’s a beautiful, sexy place that I was excited to take my lovah for his 1st time. I planned the whole date night. Deep Dive did not meet my expectations. We are craft cocktail consumers. The drinks were delicious. Sad the rest was subpar. 90 min timed reservation for $175 was known going in but left thinking I won’t return nor recommend. This was not my 1st visit but 1st since Covid.

    I got there early as my day was moving fast, I am on east coast time so inquired if I could get in early, this place is always in high demand. The host was so gracious she to get me in early, she was very welcoming and helpful the entire evening. The craft and love of the mixology art, is it at its finest here… the entire experience was warm, enlightening and thoroughly delicious. If you come here, bring your best manners, be patient, treat all with respect and you will be rewarded, I promise

    I've been to Deep Dive three times now, and I find the experience is completely different depending on whether you have a table or a seat at the bar. My wife and I visited and were looking forward to having at least a couple of drinks each, and noshing on all sorts of things. But the bar seating is uncomfortable at best, not someplace you'd want to stay for more than one drink. Unfortunately, the restaurant doesn't distinguish between tables and bar seats—a reservation is a reservation, you get whatever they have when you walk in. We would have stayed longer and spent twice as much with them had we been at a table. We love the ambience of Deep Dive, truly, and we'll return if I can be assured of a table seat. Bottom line is that Deep Dive needs to distinguish between table and bar seating. I'd be fine with a minimum spend for a table seat.

    Neat space and great drinks. We just felt like an afterthought to the staff. We felt rushed to order and weren’t given much help when asking for recommendations. We ordered bread but it never came. Couldn’t get the attention of the bar tenders, so we finished our drinks, paid and left. It could be a one off experience, but it’s the place is hard to get into so not sure we will make the effort to go again.

    Classy and elegant interiors. Very nice bar with a wide selection of cocktails and wine options. The chicken liver pâté with sumac was phenomenal! Cocktails were a bit pricey than regular bars but they make it really good with a nice presentation. The service was excellent. Great for date night but you’ll have to reserve in advance.

    Super underwhelmed by the whole concept and bar. Each cocktail costs $18 on average, with most being in the $20 price range. The selection of food is mediocre as well, just small plates of snacks to share, if anything. The playlist was rather off, I felt like it didn’t go with the bar’s ambience. (They played country…?) My party of 3 sat and no one came to greet. We waited for 10 minutes before a server came over and asked “what can I get you?” Not saying that it’s not okay, but I consider this to be a fancier place than the dive bar down the road, it would be nice to be introduced to the menu, or even a “welcome to deep dive. Is it your first time here?” We ordered 3 drinks and the charcuterie board. 2 servers really pushed for the buffalo mozzarella something even though we said twice that we weren’t interested. The interior felt really posh and sexy but the vibe was like blah. You’re seated SO closely to the table beside you that they legit can hear your conversations, and you can listen to theirs as well. With the price, I expected better service and not to be seated next to someone so closely that it reminded me of seating in a foodcourt back in Asia. First time here and don’t think i’ll be back in a while.
