  • The mesquite grilled trout
    IlrrVIP
    Dined on 7/26/2012
    The mesquite grilled trout was some of the best I've had. The waiter was very helpful answering all our questions about sauces, seasonings, etc. He went over the entire menu with us right after we were seated. We were given a baking powder biscuit right after we were seated. I would have preferred it after ordering as it was warm but didn't stay that way. Nice variety on lunch menu with moderate entrees and small sandwiches paired with salad or soup.

    My wife and I decided to try this restaurant for the first time for a special birthday celebration. The dining room and kitchen are new and spotless. Food and service were very good. It was very busy for a Wednesday night and the noise level prevented us from having the romantic evening we planned. Would recommend it for the food and ambiance, but not for a quiet dining experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Ambiance overall was very pleasing, but noise level was a bit high. There were 3 in our party, and 2 of us had very good, very well prepared meals (one steak entree and one trout entree). The 3rd party was not so lucky, having ordered the scallops which were served undercooked. The manager however was very gracious and had that meal remade, and deducted the whole price for that meal from the check. In addition, they offered the affected party a free dessert, which in my opinion went well above our expectations in terms of a resolution. The staff was very attentive, and you could tell they took pride in the many fresh fish offerings on the menu, with the fish being less than 24 hours from catch to table.

    This was my second visit, and the service and ambiance were excellent! I ordered the lobster Cobb salad, and it was good, but there was only 1 medium size piece of lobster meat, and the rest were small morsels. The taste was great, but on the whole it was a disappointment due to size and value. The strawberry shortcake was okay, but the cake was hard, almost stale, not what we expected. I would return, but definitely order something different!

    Having just been at Devon the previous Saturday with my husband and we both enjoying it so, I was anxious to show it off to my friend. What a disaster!!! I thought we were in a Peter Sellars Inspector Clouseau movie!!!! The waitress spoiled everything for us. She couldn't get the order straight, spilled my drink all over the table and didn't offer a new one, etc. I could go on, but no one would believe what a fiasco she caused the experience to be. I did say to the manager on our way out that the waitress was a disaster....and she is.

    I would have given it 5 stars. But, I think the $24 price for brunch is a little on the high side. Other than that everything is outstanding. To be honest, it's probably the best brunch I've ever had.

    This isn't nearly as good as Braxton was. The staff isn't trained well to serve us. It is very noisy in the restaurant. Music has a jungle beat. Not good when we are hoping to hear a conversation in the restaurant. I would recommend you keep away from this restaurant until they get the staff working together. At one point they brought our meal and took away all our silverware. Try eating with no utensils.

    My wife and I were huge fans of Braxton, which was located in Oakbrook Center. We were saddened when we attended Braxton"s closing night, but were hop[eful that Devon would fill it's shies. We have dined a few times at the Devon In downtown Chicago. It is good but just not as comfortable as Braxton. Our first diner at the new Braxton / devon in Oak Brook Terrace will take some getting used to. It is lovely inside, same warm friendly wait staff, same great seafood, same great wine list and still a great value. It is much noisier than their former location. parking is almost scarce. The large store front windows some how take away from the original warm comfortable feeling we are used to. At any rate, we had a gerat time and a wonderful time

    Braxton was one of my husband's favorite restaurants and when it closed he was at a loss. Now that the parent company has opened Devon in our area, he is a happy camper once again. The food was delicious and presentation was impeccable. Drinks, especially there specialty ones, are awesome. I plan to take all my friends there.

    We went for my husbands birthday...just delicious food...I had shrimp scampi...and my husband had wild salmon with the berry preparation. Devon is very accommodating for special request...if you like your asparagus steamed instead of grilled they can do that...is you want your fish pan fried instead of mesquite grilled ...they will do that. We had creme brulle for dessert...one of the best we've had. So, if you've never been to Devon, we highly recommend it!!!

    Used to be Braxton's. The totally rehabbed space is modern and tastefully decorated-too bad the food we ordered didn't live up to the surroundings.They must of lost their cooking staff. Went there for lunch and the place was half full. The highly touted crab cake I ordered came out tasteless and room temperature. The coffee served after lunch was also barely above room temperature. The manager apologized and offered desserts. I hope they get their act together because the area could use a good seafood restaurant.

    Two different menus were given and the cocktail list had been written on. It almost looked like it was used to tally what was in stock. Mark, another server who stopped by, was very knowledgeable and professional. He recommend some outstanding dishes and replaced our menus in a timely manner. Our steak was cooked perfect! The food was not as hot as it should be though. No sauces or dishes were described. Our reservation was later in the evening but our entire meal felt rushed. Our server pulled plates too soon and never let us know that the restaurant was closing. She also seemed bored. We moved to the bar so she could finish her close out. Jordan, the bartender, was outstanding. His drinks were AMAZING! Bianca was extremely friendly too!

    Wonderful seafood, Braxton's biscuits, what more could you want? Maybe to be able to hear your partner. We enjoyed the coconut green curry mussels (wanted to slurp up the sauce it was so good), and the halibut was moist and flaky. But the sound level was too loud, because they have lively music playing (lively, not live), and as a result people need to speak louder over it. Turn it down a bit or even off when the place is full, and the experience will much improve.

    Went with 5 other people (ages 21-70) and everyone enjoyed their entrees very much! (We all had seafood, no steak). The key lime pie however, had a crust that tasted like cardboard, that was disappointing. I ranked the service as "fair" because a few times our server would approach the table when an obviously serious conversation was happening and she'd just interrupt and say what she needed to. Other than that, she was a little stiff, but fine.The noise level is actually above "energetic", & just too loud - they don't have much to absorb various sounds/conversations. We were seated at a U-shaped booth and it was hard to hear people in our own party at times.The lighting is extremely poor making it hard to read the menus.

    It was like going to Braxton's but in a new location. The macadamia nut crusted halibut was wonderful -- the fish was flaky, the sauce light and it was served with some berries which were a nice touch. I'm still thinking about it! My husband's tuna was wonderfully prepared. Service was friendly but not intrusive.

    We missed Braxton and are glad to see Devon open. The biscuits are as good as ever, as well as the seafood. Had the scallops and the salmon -- both delicious. Like the atmosphere too. Only negative comment is regarding the server and the wine menu. I was happy to see that the menu called their bigger pour a carafe (9 oz) and the 6 oz. a glass. So we ordered glasses (and clearly said glasses)and were brought the carafes. Typical attempt to upsell on high margin liquor. We pointed it out and they fixed it, but when the waiter said the bigger pour was usual I laughed at him. A 6 oz. glass is generous, 9 oz. is a lot of wine. To me anyway! We'll be back again soon.

    While Devon has been open for just a few weeks, there are many, many kinks to be worked out. Waiter was friendly, but not overly prompt. Orders were taken. After a relatively long wait, dinner arrived but my wife's entree was incorrect (Halibut arrived, not the Scallops she ordered). They took her dinner away to replace it, acknowledging the error. 15 minutes later, her replacement dinner arrived. Out of courtesy, I waited to eat, so my dinner was cold. The waitstaff knew I was waiting, but made no offer to warm my plate, etc. No apologizes, no credit on the check (in fact, we were charged for the more expensive Halibut). Several other issues observed. Need more space to capture it all. Bottom line: I'll wait awhile to
