  • "They got rid of the Sunday brunch the week before we went which dissapointed us but we still decided to try it for brunch. By the way there was nothing mentioned on the website about this and actually the website still had the menu on it. I had the steak and eggs with a bloody mary. Bloody Mary was undrinkable it was so watered down and just bland tasting. Steak was about a 4-5oz portion(enough for breakfast) cut into strips but one strip would be medum rare, anouther well and aoughter medium(the way I ordered it) it wasnt very good, the eggs were fine and the potatoes were ok as well. Wife had cheese, mushroom and ham omelet she said it was a little greasy but decent. Wait staff was good but we wont ever be back."

  • "Food was outstanding. I had the charred tuna which was fantastic. My wife went with the crab legs that were also great. Good portion sizes too. We had never been to this spot before, and we really enjoyed it. The service was excellent, we had a young guy... blanking on his name right now... But he was terrific."

  • "I've been to Devon three times now, and each time has been delicious. The food and service are always above average at worst, and phenomenal at their best. It's not inexpensive, but it's worth the occasional splurge for sure. The lobster mac and cheese is a must-try."

  • "I have dined at Devon's Chicago location multiple times. My joy is bringing guests who appreciate great food and service and seeing them enjoy the experience. This dinner was with 2 very sophisticated professional colleagues who have eaten at many top places and have traveled extensively. They were delighted with our Devon dinner. Each of them ate 2 of the wonderful, fresh warm biscuits and the fresh grilled barramundi and the wild salmon were terrific. They also enjoyed the yukon gold potatoes. Our server was attentive, informative and added greatly to the quality of the entire evening. Both of my guests talked about returning. Thank you Devon's (please bring back the cioppino - that is the only thing I miss)."

  • "There were four in our party for dinner (bottles of wine are half price on Sundays). The rolls are served hot out of the oven & are very good. We each ordered a different seafood dish & we all thoroughly enjoyed our food. The food portions are generous & flavored well. Our waitress was very attentive without being intrusive. Save room for dessert because they are fantastic & big enough to share. The location is perfect for a after dinner walk to the Water Tower or the Mag Mile."

  • "I went there for a small group dinner (6) for a special occasion. The service was good and we were placed in a private dinning area that made the experience much more personal for everyone."

  • "Took my wife for her birthday dinner with our adult children. Better even than I had remembered. Every appetizer and entree was excellent and each was quite different. From Ahi tuna to shrimp enchiladas to the mixed grill to the basic but excellent filet mignon. The atmosphere was nice. I like the private dining areas on the side that seat from 4 to 8 or more. The hosts and wait staff were friendly and welcoming. My only criticism was that the crab cake on the mixed grill was poor (but I am from Maryland), and once we were were served, our waiter seemed to disappear, and it took too long to get the check. Nevertheless, an excellent experience, and we will be back."

  • "Love Lobster Nights upstairs. Muscles are consistently great way to start dinner and large enough for two to share. Tried the chipotle shrimp enchiladas and will get them again. And again."

  • "Great location, great fish, but terrible service. Busboys good. Need more wait staff."

  • "One of the best seafood places in chicago. Have not had a bad piece of fish and it is always cooked properly. Huge wine list."

  • "I took my wife her to celebrate her 30th birthday and had a remarkable experience. Upon arriving we were escorted downstairs to our personal booth (secluded from anyone else). Our server was engaging, warm, and very knowledgeable about the menu. The flavors of the food exploded with taste. My wife had the time of her life, other than being with me of course!"

    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine pairings with our food choices; he actually recommended everything that I was going to choose in the first place, but his affirmations definitely solidified my decisions. The crab cakes were fresh and densely delicious, definitely the best that I've ever had. They were extremely fresh composed of more crab than breadcrumb filler, accompanied with a zesty remolaude and slaw garnish. We enjoyed our dinner here so much that we went back the next day for brunch and drinks. I tried raw oysters for the first time, and I was instantly hooked."

  • "It's not clear that you have to sit upstairs for the oyster special. We were seated downstairs, and told the special was only for upstairs. When We were incorrectly told then and/or by our server later, the incorrect names of the oysters--in fact, no one really knew which was which. Our server, though nice, clearly was not trained. He didn't really know the menu, didn't ask all at table for order at the same time, was absent for nearly 30 minutes to find the oyster names, and generally seemed to step up service when we discussed leaving. Very disappointing experience--have eaten here before and enjoyed it--upstairs."

  • "My family & I truly enjoyed our recent visit. The food & staff were superb! I especially enjoyed the warm atmosphere. The atmosphere allowed my family to really enjoy our time together. Often times restaurants are hectic on holidays such as Father's Day. The staff at Devon were ready for any situation! My dad especially enjoyed fining at Devon. It was his first visit. I will definently pay Devon Seafood Grill another visit in the near future!"

  • "Although I've enjoyed tremendously the countless dinners I've had at Devon, the brunch was horrible. The food was way below their usual standards. Everything lacked taste and we were extremely disappointed. They also ran out of several items, including the Prime Rib. I am assuming Devon decided to start offering brunch to compete with Shaw's Crab House, which is not too far away and offers a magnificent Sunday brunch. If that is the case, I would suggest management research the offerings at Shaw's more closely. Will not return to Devon for brunch. Will stick to dinner."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Food was very good though I have seen better. When folks deliver supposedly fresh biscuits, I expect some recent association with the oven. There was no warmth or even softness. They were clearly cold though tasty. They would not melt butter if that is your expectation. We were among the first to arrive on a Saturday evening, so these may have been leftover from lunch. Service was slow and the waiter was not particularly attentive. We spent a lot of time waiting for basic things such as a refresh on drinks or a need to attract a waiter's attention to make an adjustment. The atmosphere is great for evening dining. I suspect things would be better in the evening rush. Things are probably better when the waiters are at their busiest."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Devon seems to be declining - had the tempura shrimp - picked it up and breeding fell right off! Generally the rolls are refreshed again and again until you cry uncle but no one came back this time - food was mediocre - service was good - however I'm in no rush to go back"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "It's obvious that Devon takes its seafood seriously. After dining at most speciality seafood restaurants in Chicago, Devon gets put toward the top of the list!"

  • "Found this place via some research online- was very happy with the results of our visit. We ordered a variety of items and all were in the "Very Tasty" category. Service was professional and timely. Started with a drink upstairs and upon return we will probably opt to eat upstairs as it offers some interesting views to the busy neighborhood."

  • "Picture and description show an "outdoor" patio. Made reservations on Open Table, even leaving a note to restaurant that stated we wanted outdoor seating. We were looking to dine Al Fresco, hence the choice. Thus, they should have contacted me and told me that they had lost their license for the outdoor patio, but would still love to have us.............or something. Upon arrival, we were surprised that no outdoor dining existed and having theater tickets in the area and being on a time schedule, left us no option but to dine there. Don't get me wrong, the food was great! Loved it. But the lack of transparency when outdoor seating was requested is just not good customer service."

  • "Came for their Sunday happy hour ($1 oysters &1/2 off bottles of wine). The wine was great AND a great price. But the food was lacking. The oysters weren't shucked properly (had tiny bits of shell in every oyster) and the oyster hadn't been disconnected from the bottom shell. And I wasn’t a fan of either of the sauces that came with it; a cocktail and a wasabi vinegar (I think). I will never understand why restaurants don’t always serve the classic mignonette. You just can’t go wrong. Additionally, the shrimp ceviche was bland and the calamari (we ordered it grilled) was chewy. The Spicy Tuna Roll was good though. And our server (Mitchell) was AWESOME! But all-in-all, for a seafood place, it was remarkably disappointing. "

  • "I visited Chicago recently and this was by far the best meal I ate. Note that I did not write it was the best restaurant in the city, but I was with a colleague who wouldn't have indulged my taste for Michelin-star rated restaurants. In any event, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. I had deliciously prepared barramundi preceded by a chipotle shrimp dish. The chipotle flavoring was pleasant and not in the least overpowering. The key lime pie dessert could have been a bit more flavorful. The service was extremely attentive."
