We requested a quiet table
We requested a quiet table because we have two kids and are not particularly fond of loud places. We got to the pub and there was a live band playing music in the main area. We were a bit worried about the noise but we were brought to a room in the back that was wonderfully quiet even though it was just around the corner from the band. Service as usual was excellent as was the food. My favorite place in Davis now ...

We went here for dinner on
We went here for dinner on a Friday night, with our reservation we were seated right away, service was very friendly and accomodated our few alterations to our order. Parking was not pleasant, we parked in the garage a block and a half away. Food was good but not what I was hoping for, not great. I'm a glutton though and nostalgic for European food like we had when our husbands were in the military so I'll go back and try something else, I was hoping for something amazing, maybe I just didn't order the right thing this time. I will say though, the appetizer and dessert was off the chart.

Wireless & Beer!
We showed up at 4pm (during spring break, so not busy) in order to use de Vere's wireless for group work while enjoying a beer and appetizers.
Perfect. Super great staff and amazing beer. Food, eh -- I don't love bar food. But this is more sophisticated than most places. The students LOVED the wings and fries. I appreciated the breads, cheeses, etc.
Totally successful moment!

I had never been to de Vere's before in my life. A few of my friends had before me and said it was good. I recently booked a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday and it was a really good experience. Our waiter Dave was great and met all our needs and even stayed on shift until we left.

Can't beat the Beer Cheese
Can't beat the Beer Cheese Nachos ($4) and a pitcher of Lagunitas IPA ($12) during Happy Hour! Then we both had Fish 'n Chips which were excellent. Nice atmosphere, and excellent service.

Nice bar, great service, wholesome
Nice bar, great service, wholesome food. The pub is bit dark for my taste (we dined mid-morning, a time when some daylight would be nice) but maybe I'm just getting old :-) I'd definitely have breakfast there again though.

Lunch on the patio
I took an out of town guest here and she was quite pleased with the food. We split a special steak sandwich with brie on sourdough which was very tasty. The carmelized onions were especially delicious.

Great pub with more than pub grub
I've enjoyed de Vere's since they opened. It's a great pub with fantastic ambiance. An while they certainly have all the usual pub fair and do a great job with it, they also have both lighter and fancier choices as well. Their Sunday brunch with bottomless mimosas is great for a group of friends as well.

Consistent, tasty and fun
deVere's offers consistent very good and very tasty food and excellent friendly service. It is always fun and they work hard to accomodate your needs. Their selection of beer, ales and whiskies is outstanding.

Great for a date night
Brought my wife for a nice dinner. She had the "Fish and Chips" and I had the "Proper fry up" with a properly poured Guiness. The meal was of the same standard as a meal served in a pub in Dublin. The service was on time and the waitress not only beautiful but very attentive. We will most assurady go back.

Great Irish pub
This was our first time at de veres irish pub, we took the recommendation of a friend and were very glad we did. On the weekends from 9a to 2p they have an abbreviated brunch menu. All 5 of us dining ordered something different and were very happy with our selections. Each of us raved about our choice. The shepherd's pie is very good as well as the Irish bacon Benedict. My mother said the gravy on the biscuits and gravy was one of the best that shes had. We will be returning as there are other items on the menu which we would like to try. Our server was very efficient and friendly. By he way devere's make an excellent spicy bloody mary.

A pleasant dining experience
We enjoyed three different selections from the menu, and they were excellent. The outside seating was comfortable and inviting. The wait person was attentive to our needs.

It is a great Irish pub. It
It is a great Irish pub. It has very good food and service. The interior is very well decorated with its library room and wall decorations. The 4 of us enjoyed our visit very much even though we were not drinking.

The menu was confusing. Two prices for each item. I thought one was for lunch & one for dinner. Turned out they were for small & large. When we ordered we were not asked if we wanted small or large so they automatically gave us the large & charged us the higher price. When I asked about the prices on the menu that is when we found out what the difference was. The restaurant did redo the ticket & charged the lower price. It turned out real good but I suggest the restaurant makes sure they offer the small or large upon taking the orders.

We had a fun time - friendly atmosphere. From hostess, to bartender to waitress -- great service and great food & beer. Restaurant is noisy, but not more than you would expect at a bar on a Saturday night :)
Reservation process was very easy.

Great Irish Pub
Our two nephews that are attending U.C. Davis recommended this restaurant. The service was great, the beer was good and the appetizers and dinners delicious. We all shared the bread pudding for desert and it was a big hit! There was a very lively Fruday night crowd so it was a little difficult for the old Aunt and Uncle to hear, but this small issue was overshadowed by everything else being so positive. A great time was had by all!
