    We wanted a place for a small celebration and this was perfect. Although the prices may seem a little high, the food was fabulous. Our server was knowledgable and friendly. He recommended some dishes that we willingly tried, and they were delicious. The noise level made it difficult to have conversation sometimes. However, we were there on a Saturday night.

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    Only one other person was in the cafe, it was 30 minutes after opening, yet the pace was too slow. The first thing to arrive were Bisquick buns--old and hard. My husband had flat iron steak and eggs--medallions of beef...paired for brunch with oven browned potatoes which were half cooked and again hard. I had sea scallops, the first two were good; the third loaded with sand. The Bellini was delivered by the bartender, and I was asked why I had not ordered booze. I responded that I was on meds. I hope that was ok with him. What business is it of his why I did not order liquor. Not enough sorbet to notice in the Bellini. I will only go back for the cheap happy hour martinis....ONLY

    Reservation at 8:00...finally seated in the downstairs bar after 9:00 and food at 10:00pm. Nikki the bartender was the only bright spot. We had to go to the bar for our own drinks and we cleared our own dishes. Host staff did offer 2 free appetizers but failed to mention this to the server. He was very argumentative but finally credited them off the bill. No apologies, no management presence so we just left disappointed. I was a loyal/repeat customer. However, I will not be back. There is too much competition in the area to treat customers this way.

    Had a good meal. The food was very fresh. Lobster rolls were bland and needed more lobster and less other stuff, but had the right bun! I come from New England and still not have found a good New England lobster roll in Midwest. Mussels were excellent. Scallops were tender but a bit too salty.

    The service here was excellent. From the moment we walked in the restaurant, we were promptly greeted and seated. Server was there within seconds to get us started on our night. Servers seemed to really know the menu and made recommendations. Drinks from the bar were solid. Food was excellent. Surf & turf offers a variety of flavors at once. Everyone raves about the lobster mac and cheese with good reason. The lemon & asparagus risotto paired perfectly with the steak & crab cake. We were too full for dessert, but will certainly be back to try it another time. Highly recommend for seafood lovers.

    Devon was a wondrufl dining expereince for the 6 of us, celebrating two birthdays at once. The large seafood sampler was so good, we could have stopped there, and still given a 5-star review. To have lobster claws as part of the sampler was just over the top! Our entrees ranged from lobster tail to spearfish to salmon to swordfish to char, and everyone raved about their own dish. Sides were also great. Dan, our server, was perfect in being helpful and attentive, yet not hovering. We got two comped desserts for the birthday people as well!! Overall, it was quite expensive but worth every dollar. Definitely a return trip is planned.

    Dined on 10/7/2014
    My favorite happy hour - so many food options and at very convenient times. Can't beat the $3 lobster claws, although the 2nd time I went I was disappointed - they had a "just taken out of the freezer" taste and drawn butter was not brought out. Otherwise, we enjoyed most of the $7 appetizers, especially the lobster rolls, chipotle shrimp (which is actually a salad), tuna tartare, and even the fried calamari has carrots and jalapenos to mix it up. Great drink specials and of course $1 oysters. Lots of space in the bar seating area and very friendly service.

    We were visiting from out of country and the Devon Grill was suggested to us by our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised and delighted with the quality of food, the value and the service. We would recommend this eatery to anyone visiting Chicago and plan to revisit Devon the next time we are in Chicago.

    We had an early dinner reservation as we were headed to the theater later that night and they were very attentive to our schedule. We enjoyed a private dining area though we did not request it. The salmon flatbread appetizer was fantastic, our scallops and seated ahi excellent. Try the home made ice cream if you have room.

We were treated so well. Every single person commented on how delicious the food was. Devon's created an exceptional dining experience for my group.

    I can't say anything terrific about this place. The food was good, but not special. The fish was tasty, but not memorable. The server was around alot, almost too much, to the point that it was difficult to have a conversation because he was checking in to be sure everything was "perfect". The pace of the meal felt rushed. If I had somewhere else to be, I may have appreciated it, but I didn't ask for a quick exit. If you have somewhere else to be, this is the place. Otherwise, I think there are lots of other choices.

    Went on 9/16 to celebrate our Anniversary; However, the frog legs my husband ordered were NOT fresh but rather frozen. What we were willing to pay a higher price for turned out to be very deceiving and disappointing as all other sides were great. The texture and taste of the frog legs were less than desirable let alone pass off as fresh. My husand's burbon was had so much ice it tasted very water down within a minute or two. Because of one of two entrees not being desirable with a bill of $180 for 2, we will not return to the restaurant nor recommend it to friends, family unfortunately.

    After the mediocre reviews that accompanied the opening of the very pretty restaurant when it opened,I was a little wary when out of town visitors wanted "a special place for fish" that was also near their hotel & theater. Everyone was beyond being very pleased with their entries;our waiter (Phoenix) was experienced, cordial, prompt & mature.The place was quiet,at least partially because we were early I am sure. We may even return for our annual family dinner in the future, perhaps in one of the little private rooms downstairs.We had a theater time deadline which was met with ease. I was pleased that there were several reasonably priced wines. The tuile cookie may have been the best cookie I have ever eaten, even tho it wasn't a fish.

    In early Sept. 2014, I visited this restaurant for the 1st time. It was a small group of only 4 individuals for a birthday celebration. I had a wonderful time. The ambiance was great; very cozy and the noise level was pretty moderate. The waiter provided excellent service; making sure our glasses were always full. And lastly, the food was excellent. Prices were what i would expect for this type of restaurant. I particularly love the shrimp scampi. Overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner or group outing.
