Diner Reviews
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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."

  • "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 6/25/2014
  • "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."

  • "I can't believe it took me so long to find this place. It's great. We've not been there twice with 6-8 other people and everyone had fish that was outstanding."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I came here for my birthday, and it was perfect. The service was amazing, and everything was fresh and delicious. We had oysters, lobster, and the seafood combo. Also loved the Gorgonzola stuffed olives that came with my martinis."

  • "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!"

  • "I've been to Devon seafood grill twice on two special occasions just with my wife and I, no kids ... They stayed with Grandma. Overall service ambiance and food I give it A+..will definitely recommend and come back again."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "No complaints here. I had a very nice halibut entree, good wine, and a nice dessert, all at a reasonable price considering the location. I'll definitely be back. "

  • "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. "

  • "Overall I thought this was very good. Cool room our table was a bit close to hte kitchen but we had a nice booth. The food was really good. Had the shrimp scampi appetizer and it was one of the best I had. The lobster Bisque was solid and came out very hot. I had the surf and turf with the crab cake and filet. The filet was very good and the crab cake was excellent. My wife had the grilled seafood sampler good and filling. I would also the restaurant was very reasonable with dishes in the 30-40 dollar range and comes with 2 sides. Overall vary good. "

  • "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."

  • "I came down with my forensics partner and my two coaches for the Nationals Forensics Tournament...we wanted to go to a really fancy restaurant, so the night before we left i found Devon's online. Our service, waiter, ambiance....everything was amazing. It's truly wonderful to have a waiter that knows what is good and not on the menu and how to recommend items. His service was amazing and we definitely left satisfied, stuffed and happy :) Even though it was a pricey meal, you DEFINITELY pay for what you get. The food was DELICIOUS...i recommend Devon's to anyone!!"

  • "I mentioned to a friend of mine that I was having a dinner date at Devon. The response was not positive however I wanted to come to my own conclusion. My cocktail was bland as well as the grilled calamari. The dinner was so disappointing. I ordered halibut- a recommendation by the server and when I cut into the fish, the texture was so dry! I came to Devon for their fish and seafood and felt like I had a piece of steak- which I haven't eaten for over 15 years now because to the 'dry meat' texture. This was my first and last time here. "

  • "The service was above and beyond my expectations. David was a great and knowledgable server. We enjoyed chatting with him, as we were his first table of the night. Our drinks were very good, I had the Pink Pop (or called something along those lines), my cousin had the blackberry martini. The food was only so-so. I had the halibut, which I thought was very bland. My sides of asparagus and zucchini medley where quite good. The restaurant decor is lovely, but we ate in the lower level and it felt a little dungeony due to no windows, darker decor and very low lighting. All in all the experience was ok to good. With so many amazing foodie places in Chicago though, I don't know if I'd come back here. "
