  • "No other restaurant has a better happy hour! You can't beat $6 lobster tamales!! "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "You want a great seafood meal in Chicago, go here. It was great. I had the King Salmon with a side of Lobster Mac and Cheese & Special Spinach. We dined in the Wine Room, a private room that was nice and quite. "

  • "I enjoyed Devon Grill. The food combinations are different than other upscale restaurants in the area. I liked that they have lobster tamale & duck flatbread. The lobster mac & cheese was delicious & their martinis are really tasty too. I had a drink at the bar & had it transferred to my table. I declined to have a second drink at the bar because I knew my friend was coming soon and that we'd have a drink together. The bartender put the second drink on my tab anyway. The good thing is when I alerted our waiter, he took the second drink off immediately. Nice ambiance, beautiful, modern decor & it appeared they have a nice wine selection. I will go back especially to try out their happy hour but I will keep an eye on the bartender."

  • "From the Martins to the Menu, this place was fantastic for their food and drinks. Price-point great. Our waitress was awesome and accommodating and made sure our drinks were perfect before she left the table. The only think I found puzzling was the "hype" about the dinner rolls...very boring, tasteless and a little over-cooked. I absolutely love and appreciate good bread, but their big presentation for a mediocre finale was disappointing. I would recommend another type of bread or roll to be served at the restaurant."

  • "Great spot for a Friday night for conversation & good food. Ate downstairs in one of their quiet little rooms they have, just my wife and i. Been before for business. My measure is would you spend your own money? And i did."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Excellent service, wonderful seafood, creative drinks. Only wish the description of the special Hendricks martini had included that it had sugar in it. I would have ordered a gin martini with Hendricks and cucumber garnish instead. Oh well. My husband and I plan on returning."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Had Brunch ......and it was one of the best brunches ever. We enjoyed everything from seafood, to sushi to traditional breakfast items to crab legs to an omelet station to prime rib.....all for a reasonable price and the time to enjoy the experience. It was the only meal of the day."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "High quality buffet --prime rib, impeccable seafood and lots of variety."

  • "My wife and I settled on Devon after looking at their menu online. First we had a drink at the bar, with 3 people behind the bar and 6 total guests at the bar, it shouldn't take 2-3 mins for a quick hello. Bar service was so-so, as one bartender never attempted to serve us while the other was waiting on everyone. We then go to the host stand to get sat, mind you I put in Open Table notes that it was my wife's birthday, and while there was a warm welcome, no acknowledgement of my wife's birthday. If they had read the notes, I asked for a nice quiet table, not one RIGHT next to the kitchen! They staff never acknowledged my wife's birthday, also in the notes, which is a shame because the food was really good. May never go back!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This is a great place to fine especially if you love seafood, everything was freshly prepared and delish! The service was good but the food when even better! I highly recommend the lobster, it was soft, sweet and succulent and crab cakes are to die for! My mother-in-law had the red snapper and it was so flavorful! Great place to dine for any occassion!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Very enjoyable experience. The atmosphere, service and food made for a special occasion. Will definitely dine at Devon's again."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Was there a week night with my boyfriend. had the crab cakes to share - they were excellent, very 'craby' - and then the tuna, perfectly cooked. Good advice from our servor for the wine."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "It was absolutely amazing! Ivan provided us with the best service. The drinks, food, and atmosphere far exceeded our expectations. I've always had pleasant experiences there, but this made me want to come back ASAP."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We both really enjoyed the entree we ordered. I ordered the scallops and my date ordered the swordfish. Both were cooked to perfection. Exactly what you would expect, which I'm sure what was intended. However, we both felt that we could have cooked them as good at home. I would recommed that the chef use his or her skills to make the entres "special" to differentiate them from normal or from other seafood restaurants. Don't get me wrong, we really enjoyed the meal. And our waiter was excellent. But I'm not sure there was anything special to make me come back, soon. Eventually I will get back there. But I won't plan on it being really soon."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Enjoy their fish selection, hot biscuits, good sized portions, mashed potatoes and attentive service. Reasonable prices and good food served in an inviting atmosphere. I look forward to returning again soon!"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I were visiting Chicago and read all these great reviews about Devon, so we decided to try it. It was an awful experience. Our waitress, she was nice and friendly but forgot to put out entrees in and we waited for an hour and ten minutes between courses. That's completely unacceptable. When the food finally was brought over, it was cold and didn't taste like anything I wanted to eat ever again. Very bland and nothing worth writing home about. The manager did comp our entrees but still I would have rather been somewhere good and paid full price. The restaurant is downstairs, and has no windows. The decor is average if not a little outdated. I definitely would recommend going somewhere else."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Yes, it's decadent. And a feast made up of a la carte items. Each so fun and tasty. Rounded out by one of the best Gimlets. My first time at Devon's. My daughter's recommendation. Delightful menu and ambiance. Service? Right mix of attention and privacy. Can't wait to try the entrees."

  • "This restaurant has a great seafood offering, with their crab cakes leading the way. The service was outstanding."

  • "This is a reasonably priced, nice seafood place with a nice ambiance -- not too loud, not too quiet. Great wine list, not-bad beer list, and excellent service. I'll be back!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Crab cake very good in quality and very well cooked. Meat also very good quality. Service was quick but some improvements needed (coffee served with no spoon and sugar and had to ask for to get it)."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I celebrated my 31st birthday here on March 14th and the overall experience was enjoyable. Phoenix was our waiter and did a fantastic job with servicing our table as well as ensuring our dining needs were met. It was a pleasant surprise to be seated in the back wine room away from the crowd. It allowed us a private dining experience. I'd recommend this restaurant for any occasion."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Everybody can't get crab cakes quiet right but Devon is an exception. I love their Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, Lobster Mac & Cheese, and Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "tried this place for the first time for my husbands bday. requested a table away from the bar (noise level) hostess was accomodating. There's an upstairs and downstairs to the restaurant. The main dining is downstairs. We had reservations and we were seated immediately upon arrival. The noise level was perfect, it wasn't silent, but at a reasonable level that you could have a conversation with the person at your table. We had surf and turf which was excellant. My husband had the lobster mac and cheese for his side dish, it was good. Not as much lobster in it as I would have expected. The lighting of the restaurant was perfect, not too bright, not too dark. Waiter was knowledgable of menu, felt he was slow to refill our water glasses"

    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "My wife and I ate here for the first time on her birthday. We were seated in a private sectioned off room so it was very quiet and felt like we were the only people in the restaurant. Our waiter David was witty and very helpful with the menu and our wine choice. They offered my wife her choice of the dessert menu on the house. We will definitely be going back as this is now one of our favorite special dining places."

  • "PLEASE TRY THE LOBSTER TAMALE YOU WILL HAVE A FOOD-GASM! THE LOBSTER BISQUE SOUP IS GOOD TOO. I HAD A GREAT TIME. THE RESTAURANT LIGHTS ARE REALLY DIMMED BUT THE SERVICE IS FANTASTIC OUR WAITER'S NAME WAS MICHAEL HE WAS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND CUTE! GREAT TIME!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Our fish and scallops were excellent, fresh, perfectly prepared. But what really impressed were the vegetable sides--a wide choice of greens, beans and crucifers, so hard to find in most restaurants. Service was efficient and fast."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Great food, great service, overall great experience. The king salmon and king crab laegs were incredible."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Great seafood and service as usual but I was very impressed that the bar had Koval bourbon stocked and Revolution beer on tap. Those are two of Chicago's locally made award winning products."

  • "Great food and service. Our server was outstanding!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "While the fish was very fresh and the sides quite good, our service was so rushed and intrusive that we didn;t really enjoy our meals or have time to relax with our friends. We were asked if we had questions about the menu three times before we even had much time to look at it. The bussers were constantly attending to the table, including clearing our silverware so we had no knives when the meal arrived and it was only then there was a lapse in people walking the dining room and we had to wait for knives. Also we all left feeling quite cold and noticed another nearby diner with a coat on her shoulders."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I dined alone and was made to feel quite comfortable. Service (by Beth) was knowledgeable, efficient and pleasant. I requested a female lobster and that's what I go, steamed to perfection. The lobster bisque could have been a bit hotter, but the root coleslaw and brussel sprouts were quite tasty. For a delicious finish, a delectable apple croustade with cinnamon ice cream and bourbon maple syrup."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Our group of 3 had a wonderful dinner - chose a selection of small plates to share and every one was excellent. Wine and beer list has good choices too. Really enjoyed our evening of catching up and eating excellent food in a comfortable, easy atmosphere. Kudos to Devon!"

  • "My 5 girlfriends & I celebrated my birthday here, as it is one of my favorite restaurants, and I hadn't been here in a while. We were excited to have one of the private areas for our dinner!! As usual, my Char-crusted Tuna was perfect as were the Chocolate Martinis my friends kept coming my way. Service was great; we didn't feel rushed or felt like we were being too loud (we were 6 giddy women, after all!! We weren't quiet!!) Everyone enjoyed the evening, and one of the servers was kind enough to take a group photo of us before we left. I always enjoy my dining experience at Devon's, and it will continue to rank as one of my top choices!!"
