    We had a very nice experience for our youngest son's birthday He lives for oysters and lobster bisque, so we were definitely at the right place. The service was a bit rocky at the start, but definitely improved as the night progressed. Food was excellent with very ample portions.

    Upon the waiter's encouragement, I tried the seared Char. It is now my favorite choice on the menu. It was done perfectly. Seared to perfection. The waiter's knowledge of the fish as well as the other choice was welcomed. The restaurant is our favorite.

    We had a wonderful time and the food was delicious. The noise level was a little high but that could be due to 2 large party tables that were right next to us. Would like to return and try many of the other delicious options!

    GEMomVIP
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    We have been going to Devon, formerly Braxton, for many years. I am a lover of the whole Maine lobster, my husband enjoys more types of seafood. So we get to Devon and find they have NO MAINE LOBSTER!!! Yes, they had lobster tail, but it's just not the same. So I ordered the Alaska King Crab and it had a funny flavor. Between the less convenient location (in a strip mall), difficult parking, 'cold' décor and now, NO LOBSTER!, I doubt we'll return.

    This evening was a service disaster and we've had our server before and she is usually awesome! she asked if we knew about the lobster special and we didn't but then proceeded to order four. She came back and said only two left so we modified. Then she returned a third time and said only one left - disappointed! What we did order was great but we were very frustrated as we saw lobster after lobster come out of the kitchen to other tables. Also were charged for three sides we never received and got our drinks at such a slow pace it was almost comical. Either our server or the bar and kitchen (or all three) were having a really bad night or we were very unlucky!

    This used to be one of my favorite seafood restaurants in the western suburbs however it has gotten very expensive and portions have dwindled. Went for the $12 lobster tail special, very nice! However since nothing accompanied it we ordered two sides to share, the parmesan roasted potatoes and asparagus. When they arrived I could barely believe how few were on the plates. The portion was barely enough for one person to enjoy! REALLY!!?? Potatoes are cheap! Asparagus in season is too! The waiter should have explained that the sides would be barely enough for one person. The biscuits are plentiful and delicious! Don't think I will return!

    We love this restaurant; food is always good and prepared to your specifications. They will adapt to your needs, and on your birthday you get a free entree with the purchase of one, plus dessert. We are never disappointed. I especially recommend their daily fish selection. Wines sometimes are half price, which is a good deal. Overall the wait staff is awesome.

    Tried Devon since we were in Oakbrook and wanted seafood. What a pleasant surprise. Had a 7 pm reservation, seated within 5 minutes. Many seafood choices and excellent sides. The tempura shrimp sushi was just ok, but the cabrese salad was excellent as well as the swordfish and halibut. I had mentioned on the reservation that it was my husband's birthday and everyone said happy birthday from the hostess to the waiter. SErvice was superb-we will be back.

    Lovely food, lovely ambiance, super waitstaff. Thrilled to receive $15 credit for birthday and used it all up with a good friend for lunch. Of course, ordered more expensive entree than I normally would! I was a passionate patron of Braxton Seafood and am very happy that Devon is now open for business. I asked for Janet, who had worked at Braxton and took care of us a few weeks earlier. As always, she was superb. This is an excellent place for a casual lunch, a special dinner or an unusual occasion -- for two people or for twenty!

    We were greeted promptly and enthusiastically by the hostess. We decided to sit outside but shortly after being seated outside it started to rain so we headed into the bar area. Our server was congenial but not very friendly. I decided on the 3 course pre-fix menu and had the spicy gumbo, which was awesome. My husband enjoyed a sushi appetizer. We were less thrilled about the main course - mine being lobster, which was a bit over cooked, the accompaniments of were good . My husband ordered the chipotle enchiladas which were described as spicy, but were not - in fact they were overly sweet and creamy - not at all what we expected for chipotle. The Creme brulee' was an delightful finish to our otherwise "hohum" meal.

    I'll start by saying I LOVE LOVE LOVE Devons!!! I've never been disappointed, until my last visit. I had reservations for 4pm and I was 1 of 6 customers in the entire place because it was rather early for dinner. I placed my order at 4:10p, food arrived @5. I've never had to wait longer than 20min so I was rather shocked. I've never been disappointed with my entrees at Devons but I think timing is also important.

    We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere here at dinner. The tables are nicely spaced and the room is fairly quiet -- wish other restaurants were so easy to have conversations at! The food is very good, but I can't go so far as outstanding. I do like that you can choose two sides-- nice to choose your own starch and veggie, or two veggies if you want. The service was good, nothing to complain about, but the server wasn't at all friendly or personable; felt like she really didn't care.

    The interior was nicely done. It was clean, polished and pretty upscale. It's actually bigger than it looks. The serving staff was great. They were friendly, made recommendations and were very attentive. The food was excellent! Very fresh, presented beautifully and served promptly. Empty dishes were removed quickly and empty glasses were refilled right away. The manager came around to check on things and walked around overseeing service quite a few times. The next day I received an email from the restaurant thanking me for coming. Although I'm sure it was an automatic email transmission, I thought that was a nice/classy touch. I would definitely recommend Devon's and will return when I'm in the area.

    The place is very attractive, espite being in a strip mall. Dark, modern, well-appointed. Our waiter was quick to hit the table, but talked so fast it was difficult to gleen what he was saying. He offered no additional beverages, no ground pepper for the soup or salad. The seafood was tasty enough, but portions were small, shrimp was undersized for a place in this price range, seasoning was solid by not extraordinary. Overall it was just OK. Not what we had hoped for for a special occaision.

    food has always been great...and MOSTLY so are the waitstaff. Went for crab legs on Sunday and they were out....This irks me about restaurants in general...please tell your customers as soon as they sit down and get a drink what you are out of. When the waiter comes back 10 minutes later, makes me think they don't know what's going on... This time, we stayed...and I think the restaurant must feel if you're already there and have ordered you'll stay. While that may be true, I'll think about another restaurant NEXT TIME...so in the end, you lose... Food and drinks are always first class...fish can't be beat...sides are very good... oh, and love the music too...it's just right

    Devon has become our regular stop for seafood. We can rely on the fresh, large selection of seafood and the preparation is consistently excellent. The service is prompt and attentive. When only slightly delayed in being seated recently the hostess immediately apologized and comped an appetizer at the bar. The wait staff has the perfect balance of service without intrusion.

    We have eaten there several times before, both inside and outside, all wonderful dining experiences. This time, the food was great as always, but the service was very poor. The waiter seemed slightly confused as he took our drink and food orders. The entrees arrived about 3 minutes after appetizer was served.was not chatting or wasting time so I was very suprised! Then after finishing our entree there was a long wait before the dessert arrived. Guess I am being pickey, but I feel the food service was very poorly timed and the waiter minimally attentive. Final note, it did not seem busy at the hour we were eating as there was always an open table or two ( we were seated on the patio).

I can't wait to take my husband for this dining experience. The music was very nice, light and made the atmosphere feel like I was in a 5 star, pricey restaurant in downtown Chicago.
