Treated mother out too dinner.. she loved it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Mother's DayWent to Devon for Mother's Day brunch and had a nice experience for $29 pp. The shrimp quesadillas were terrific.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Spot!Had done a Yelp search for seafood restaurants in downtown Chicago - Devon Seafood Grill came pretty highly rated. Made a quick reservation for a Sunday evening via Open Table and we were set. Arrived to find a crowd around the hostess stand but we were seated immediately. Others must have been drop-ins without reservations. Anyway, we were quickly greeted by our server, Noel (sp?) and he did a great job of describing various menu items to us. Sunday is 1/2 price wine night so we took advantage of this as well. We had the mini lobster roll appetizer - which was great! Wife had blacked halibut which was very good. I had the seafood mixed grill which included shrimp, scallops, fish and a crab cake - all very good. Would recommend!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Fish I Ever HadHands down, the best tuna steak I'd ever had. Perfectly seasoned along the crust, and rare inside. It was beyond amazing. Lobster bisque was great and oysters were moderatly priced. Been here for lunch before and you get the best deal imaginable. Can be pricey if you are going for dinner though, but at least then you know it's great quality! Would def come back5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice dinnerThe food at Devon was very good. We were happy that we were in a somewhat private room, as it was quite loud and a little difficult to hear others in our party, even in the private room, I can only imagine how loud it would have been in the main dining area. Servoice was excellent.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful CelebrationWe had a lovely celebration meal at Devon on a busy Thursday night. We arrived early for our reservation, but the hostess seated us right away, and the waiter immediately offered a complimentary glass of champagne to help us begin our celebration. The food was amazing, the drinks were great, and the ambiance was a lot of fun. Our waiter was patient and kind, answering questions and offering advice. This is absolutely a restaurant I would recommend for happy hour, or a nice dinner. I will certainly be back!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic lobster dealCame here for both my b-day and my boyfriends b-day. Gotta love the Wednesday lobster special and the tuna tataki is one of my favorites. Great service too. We will be back again.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good timeTook a friend there to celebrate a new career and needless to say, we had a good time that we stayed long enough for me to get a parking ticket because we lost track of time LOL. Anyway, food was always good, server was friendly and attentive to when we need drinks or something else without us having to ask for it, atmosphere was always nice. Great location to hangout and see who comes through as well. We dined upstairs this time instead of downstairs since it was more happy hour that turned into dinner. Food was only 4 stars this round, still great main courses, but appetizers were a little cold, particularly my bisque this time. Otherwise not a deal breaker, still a great place and will be returning soon.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThis is a great place for an intimate dinner. We had an 830 reservation, we were seated on time, and greeted immediately. Food and service was great. Martinis were great. I would definitely return to this place.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and will returnHad wonderful meals at Devon. This was our first time and don't think of Chicago for seafood. Devon has changed that for us.
Problem is we usually stay two nights and can only pick two. But Devon will be at my top of list.
Really enjoyed everything.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDevon Seafood is a favoriteDevon Seafood is a favorite local restaurant. Not met by the usual friendly professional Hostesses on reception; maybe because we were too early for the usual team. Food is very good indeed. Service is excellent and server Tameka is absolutely superb. Atmosphere in the restaurant is cool and refined with a very nice eclectic mix of patrons. Fine separate dining areas , almost Japanese in outward appearance but without having to sit cross legged on the floor! The wine room is also excellent for good sized parties incorporating a higher degree of privacy. Devon Seafood's Tuna Tartare makes a great appetizer and the Seafood Mixed Grill or Seared Ahi Tuna make excellent entrees. A-Z Oregon Pinot Noir by the glass is good5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent SeafoodThe best seafood I've had in long while. Great food and service. Shrimp, Scallop and Crab cake paridise. I will dine here anytime I'm in Chicago. Could not have been better. The apple and celary salad is unique and delicious.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat first experienceI went with an out-of-town friend based on a recommendation from the GM at Red Roof Inn. Food was great, atmostphere was very nice, got a booth in the back. Service was great - Beth was friendly and genuine. I would recommend to anyone.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOpentable Awesome !Great food, great service, awesome atmosphere for private dining. The "Opentable App" was so fast and simple to use, provides such direct, timely information that made setting up reservations a breeze.
It's easy to see why the "Opentable App" is rated so high.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be back! The foodWe will be back!

Just the butter alone is a reason to go there to try out this magnificent gem ;) All kidding aside, the seafood is always fresh and the steak is spot on every time. The appetizers are outstanding and different than you will find anywhere in the city. The lobster bisque is the best in the city.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGREATI will give this restaurant 10 stars if I could. The service was great, food was very good, and it was very romantic.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFor years, Shaws has beenFor years, Shaws has been our go-to seafood restaurant, but Devon, only a block away from our apartment, is a close second. The servings are huge. They have a great gumbo that I sent back half finished because I didn't want to be tempted to finish it and not be able to enjoy my entree. The rainbow trout, simply grilled, was outstanding and I even ate most of my vegetables. My wife's crab cake entree was exceptional -- baked, not fried -- and as tasty as her homemade. We ordered carrot cake with two forks, ate our fill and had enough left over for three more people. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. It's a very good place.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMRedeemed a $25 gift certificateRedeemed a $25 gift certificate for my birthday lunch. Seated at a great window table to people watch. Fantastic glass of vino. Delectable scallop, shrimp, salmon, crab cake, potatoe & asparagus meal. Thank you for a great birthday lunch!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the moment we walkedFrom the moment we walked in the door from the time we left..Everything was GREAT,..........4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDevon Seafood Grill has beenDevon Seafood Grill has been consistentlya very good restaurant with excellent quality food and very attentive service. The only exception is that for lunch most of the tables on the street level are the high variety with tall legs. Most are also wobbly thus the seating is uncomfortable and actually annoying. Few regular and sensible tables are located in the back where people with children are seated half the area is a dark alcove,
also this area abutts a service station which is extremely noisy.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, service everything.Excellent food, service everything.

Something for everyone.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding asThe food was outstanding as well as the service. The majority of the dining experience is in the lower level, away from the bar, etc. There aren't any windows, so it lacks a vibrant and upbeat feeling. Next time we'll sit in the bar area for better mood, energy, etc.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI have written many reviewsI have written many reviews for this restaurant---- Devon.

Never had a bad meal there.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch at its best!Their holiday brunch specials are amazing. If you leave feeling unfulfilled, you must not have found all of the food stations (note the deserts are typically sitting on the lower bar).3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite!!I've never had a bad experience dining at Devon. The service is always top notch and the food is impeccable.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss the food hereThis is a place that if you missed it then you are one that missed an opportunity. Make a reservation unless you want to sit at the main floor bar. The lower level has a wine room and also some great tables with different settings. The food was portioned well and the Lobster Bisque is top notch. The servers offered help and ideas and in the end the food was fresh, fun and amazing.Get on their emailing list for great options and specials that they offer.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time diningThis was my first time dining here, and the food and our server Jameson was excellent.

My husband had oysters and trout and loved his too.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWould return again!Have never had a bad meal at either restaurant in Chicago or Oak Brook. Crab cakes are some of the best around. Attentive staff made the entire night perfect. Seafood is fresh and food is served timely/promptly. You are never rushed to eat. Only drawback is received one of their famed rolls, and watched other tables around us receive multiple - were never asked if we wanted more than one.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAll the food we had was excellent.All the food we had was excellent.
