The Diva is one of those places that you have to try, even if just once. I was fortunate enough to be treated by friends to a birthday dinner. I'll just start by saying, it's quite heavy on the wallet with dinner averaging almost $100/person for 3 courses and a glass of wine.
Dinner started off with their assorted house bread basket. The one with the walnuts is brilliant - simple yet delicious. One in our party claimed it to be best part of the meal!
Both my starter and main was great. My braised short ribs were very flavorful - a very rich and appropriately spicy dish. My salmon main was also very good. I'm not positive on how it was prepared, but I think the salmon was poached. I've never had salmon prepared this way, but it's buttery silky texture was a very pleasant change from the usual grilled way I normally have it.
The service was good, we waited quite a while for our entire party to be completed, and our server was patient at all times (but then again, the restaurant was pretty empty - even the 4-5 chefs in the kitchen looked bored). I even got a dessert wine on the house in honor of my birthday. :)
However, a girlfriend noted how she didn't like the way another server described the dish when it arrived in front of her. Instead of presenting the dish, he unprofessionally pointed with his fore-finger and wiggled it around the dish at each component. It was quite distasteful for that calibre of restaurant.
As expensive as the restaurant was, compared to some others, the portions were actually satisfactory. None of us left hungry, for some, they left disappointed with the food, but not hungry.
Would I return? For another special occasion perhaps - but I'm not in a rush to.
