Diner Reviews
  • "We had dined here twice before on Thursday evenings. Wanted to share this place with more of our family, on a Friday night. Made reservations through Open Table (first time). Was delightfully surprised with a great table! We love the food and they have a friendly and attentive service staff. We look forward to more dining experiences here with family and friends!"

  • "Good place... quality food -- has outdoor seating so one can watch passerbyes.... as one might in Europe (which I like!!). They have a Guiness Float - which I have had... and can recommend when it is very hot!!!"

  • "I thought the food was not quite up to par. The service and the friendliness were tremendous. We could hear one another's conversation."

  • "Our son Graduated from UC Davis and we had a party of 10 for lunch after the graduation ceremony. Good Irish Pub food; lots of fun & beers. The waitresses were personable and attentive. We sat outside and had a great time."

  • "DeVere's always serves up a unique and fun blend of flavors. Going there, however, you should know that you're going to get British food so don't expect a lot of conservative American choices if you're not in the mood for potatoes, sausage, and a menu item topped with an egg. There are a lot of different things to choose from though, and it's the perfect place to try out that dish you've always wondered about before booking that trip to London you've always wanted to take!"

  • "Went here for my graduation dinner. I had reservations months in advance and I get there and they had stuck us in a jammed corner surrounded by screaming soccer fans yelling at the television directly above my father's head. Other than that the food was great and the waiter was wonderful though the first half he had to squeeze back and forth through the obnoxious soccer fans. They really need to be a lot smarter in regards to the way they seat people i.e. according to what they are there for."

  • "This is a nice place to meet and have a bite. Cozy surroundings if you are away from the TVs with sports broadcast. Drinks are good, although the bloody Marys are definitely HOT - so watch out. This last time we went in the afternoon, which meant a more limited menu but the food was still good. Not much for pescatarians in the afternoon though."

  • "Lunch after my daughter's UC Davis graduation was great. The food was hearty and delicious. Our server was friendly and attentive (even with a packed restaurant). I'm glad we chose de Vere's to celebrate this special day....casual and great food!"

  • "Management was great in accommodating me for a celebration lunch. After making the original reservation on OpenTable, I called back several times to change the time and number of diners. Each time, the reaction of the staff was friendly with a "can do" attitude. I deeply appreciate this, as it was at the last-minute and I was coming in from the Bay Area. The food and especially the service was great, and the patio was enjoyable. I can't wait to go back to try the other dishes."

  • "Took my daughter here, at her request, after graduation. They were very accommodating of me - I changed the reservation a few times, including going from 7 to 10 people, then asked to move from 7PM to 6PM. Everyone who answered the phone or dealt with us in person was very friendly and happy to help us. Such a nice switch from the Bay Area! :) The beer is excellent. The wine selection limited but good. I told the waitress what I was looking for in a wine and she made an excellent recommendation. Food ranges from standard pub food like fish and chips to wild salmon served over barley with spinach that was excellent. Service was fabulous. Over all we were very happy to have made the choice to come here after graduation. :)"

  • "Had such a great, first experience. The hostess was pleasant and apologized for the brief wait since we changed our mind and chose outside seating. The waiter was super helpful, very knowledgeable with both the bar and food menus, and super attentive. I would definitely recommend this place and stop by again myself."

  • "I made a reservation for 6 people on a weekend in the morning. Two of us were seated right away while we waited for the others. Service was attentive. Great Bloody Marys. Staff was good about waiting for the rest of the group. Once all was there service continued to be good. Food was sold running from waffles with fruit to egg and meat combinations. Some nice Irish touches to give the food a different and flavorful feel. I would recommend going. I have been before for dinner and both food and service have been consistent."

  • "It's always a treat to visit my son at UCD and even better when he treats me to dinner at a fun and tatilising meal at de Vere's Irish Pub. Their fish & chips is one of the best renditions! Delectible cod without a heavy "armour" like coating. Delish!"

  • "Made reservation while visiting Davis and after reviewing menu's online. Sounded good, but doesn't nearly live up to expectations, nor does it match the quality of any of my local pubs(San Luis Obispo). Tried the skirt steak, ordered medium. Sent it back as it was blood rare. For $17 I was served maybe 4 oz of stringy, poorly cooked skirt steak (after recooking) sitting on a scoop of mashed potatoes and 5 asparagus spears. Asparagus was cooked well (not overcooked), potatoes were okay...but for $17 I expect a whole lot more. Service was barely adequate, although friendly and helpful when they did show up. When I sent the steak back for more cooking they offered me a bowl sunchoke soup (thoughtful!)which was too SALTY (and I love salt!). "

  • "Great for beer, food, service. Incredible options, great Irish food and amazing service. They seem to work in teams so someone is always around to get more water, take an extra order, or get you more drinks. We sat outside on a beautiful night which was really enjoyable."

  • "I enjoyed the food a lot (Irish Stew, Lox w/ Bread, Lamb Sliders, and Crispy Bread Pudding) but I was probably more impressed with the speed. The whole place was incredibly packed (it's an Irish pub on St. Patty's day, obviously!), but the reservation had us seated within seconds! Our server was very courteous and all-in-all it was a good experience! :)"

  • "My parents and fiancé took me here for my Birthday. Since my birthday is in March, near St. Patrick's day, we thought this would be the perfect place. The food was GREAT but it took awhile. We were in the restaurant around 12, and I think it's their slow time, so I'm not sure why the food took so long. Even so, I would definitely come here again. Our waiter was courteous and charming. We all got deserts even though it was lunch time. My Dad really enjoyed the Irish Coffee he ordered. I had a burger and it was juicy and HUGE. I gave 4 stars for ambiance because the restaurant is dark. We sat in the middle of the restaurant so it could be brighter near the windows. I gave 3 stars for Service because like I said the food came out very slow."

  • "Made reservations for a friend's birthday on a recommendation and we were not disappointed! Seated quickly and with a smile, had great beer selection and atmosphere made me feel like I was back vacationing in Ireland! Food choices were great! Had the best Reuben I've had in a long time - melted in my mouth! Appetizer of beer pretzel was just right for the 4 of us. Skirt steak, Shephard's Pie, and Bangers and Mash were right on as well! Was a bit loud towards the end of the evening, but other than that it was a great experience! We will definitely be back again!"

  • "We were pleasantly surprised by the food and atmosphere. The fish and chips lacked the pea mash we had in London but was very good. Beet salad was very nice and the Irish stew was excellent. Loved the brown bread served with it. We would come here again."

  • "Selected Dever's for this year's Valentine outing. I had heard about it from a friend and thought this might be a good opportunity to give it a try. They were also offering a 3 course promotional dinner which we may want to try. The food offering was great as was the basic menu. We decided on the special and the food was great. While the menu offered traditional Irish Pub fare, there were aslo other "more sophisticated" type food of which the special was. We enjoyed all. The food and service was excellant."

  • "I like all of the dark wood in De Vere's. The library is especially cozy. Their beer and cider selection is good, and their whiskey selection is top-notch, including many rare whiskeys. The food is what you would expect from an Irish pub: heavy on the meat & potatoes, and on the salty side. There are some healthier and lighter soup & salad options. Last time we went, my vegetables were badly burned, and they still brought them out, so minus one star for that. We haven't been there for brunch yet, but we plan to try that."

  • "If you are in Davis and need to get a bite to eat with a nice pint. Must stop at De Vere's. Traditional fish & chips, and all the other great pub food. Awesome selection of Irish whiskey's too. Very rare bottles that can't be purchased anywhere in the world."

  • "The shepherd pie was awful. I tried salt and that didn't help. I bit into a hot pepper. I avoid all hot ingredients. I told Daniel I couldn't eat it. She brought me the spinach salad and it saved the day. The cook could go on the internet and get a better recipe or eliminate it from the menue. Our waitress was very kind to us. I called your phone number 2 times and it hung up both times after I pressed 0. I'm glad you sent this email. the pictures were so entertaining. Re.noise level, We couldn't hear my sister talking a few times so she talked louder. The atmosphere was energenic. I had a good time and will return."

  • "I was able to make a reservation on New Year's Eve! We chose an early time because we were hungry. The Lamb Sliders and Mac and Cheese are our favorites. Both items were once again extremely good. The table they had reserved for us was a lousy table so we asked for another one and were given it."

  • "I'll try to keep this one short, though I'm still fuming... We drove all the way to Davis from San Francisco for my best friend's 30th birthday. We made reservations through open table for 8 at 1pm. We arrived at 12:55, the restaurant wasn't crowded but some reason they asked to wait. By 1:15 we were restless, 1:25 annoyed, 1:35 finally seated. We told our waitress that we had been waiting 30 minutes to be seated and had come for bottomless mimosas. She told us, in a few words, that it wasn't her problem and they would stop serving mimosas at 2. She did end up extending it until 2:30, but all in all the service all in all was awful -- we asked to speak to the manager twice, and both times were ignored. Horrible experience."

  • "Our two nephews that are attending U.C. Davis recommended this restaurant. The service was great, the beer was good and the appetizers and dinners delicious. We all shared the bread pudding for desert and it was a big hit! There was a very lively Fruday night crowd so it was a little difficult for the old Aunt and Uncle to hear, but this small issue was overshadowed by everything else being so positive. A great time was had by all!"
