Devon Seafood + Steak - Oakbrook Terrace Ratings and Reviews
We made the reservation on line and said it was our anniversary and they had Happy Anniversary printed on the menus. Our server was Adriana and she was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. We will definitely be coming back and hope to have Adriana for our server the next time.
I had the charred Ahi Tuna with asparagus. It was the worst tasting tuna I have eve had. It tasted like tin/metal. The coloring was a light brown rather than the red/pink color that ahi usually is. The asparagus and brussels sprouts that I ordered tasted like they put liquid smoke all over them. Not sure how you ruined a simple vegetable so badly, but even those were awful tasting. My husband ordered the lobster and it was undercooked and mushy. The butter didn't even come warmed with a flame under it. Therefore, the butter got cold along with the lobster. His whipped potatoes were dried out and not creamy. Almost like they were sitting at the old country buffet where they get crusty and old. Worst meal I've had at a restaurant in a long time. Total waste of money. Won't go back. The food we ordered really is not that hard to cook properly. No excuse.
My mother and I have dined at Devon's before - this evening we had a particularly positive experience - the server was very attentive and followed up on the several specific requests we made...
The chicken/mashed potatoes and asparagus entree - excellent
My caesar salad and bouillabaisse was outstanding... and the bouillabaisse was served with the caveat that there would be no clams - it was still outstanding.
We were there for a birthday. The food was good. The lobster mac and cheese was very underwhelming. The dessert was ok.
Here's where I was concerned. I informed the chatty hostesses my date had a birthday and to please inform the waitress. Dinner was finished and our waitress seemed like she forgot or was not told about the occasion. I flagged down a different hostess to make sure our waitress was informed and yet again nothing so we sat around after dinner waiting for something, anything.
So our waitress kept suggesting a dessert choice of some kind of which I finally gave in and said yes to bringing a lava cake over. It was served without utensils and zero fanfare. When I got the attention of our waitress, she noticed we didn't have forks or a candle that should have been put on the cake. THAT WAS IT AS FAR AS RECOGNIZING THE BIRTHDAY OCCASION.
I can't say I was not disappointed. Maybe someone can have a chat with the tall, blonde, Polish waitress about caring just a little about her job.
The front entrance greeting was the best experience I received from this restaurant. I’m very disappointed in the service and food. Me and my guest spent nearly 600. 00 hundred dollars for poor service and terrible food. NEVER AGAIN.
Whatever you do, don't order the roasted herb and garlic potatoes. I mean unless you want deep fried mummy toes that honestly could be found as an artisan or seasonal fry option on a fast food menu. Smoke is a great way to add sensual flavor... if you know what you're doing. Over smoking is horrible, kind of like when you smell like your food hours after you've left the restaurant, is gross and unappealing. This is how I experienced barrimundi, which I thought maybe some exotic fish I'd never had. But apparently they charge $36 For a fish that could be had in any lake, steam, pond or estuary from Israel to Taiwan. The servers were good, that was my only positive takeaway from this place. When you're pretty sure a kid from Chopped Junior can beat the chef in a competition don't dine there, don't waste $$$ at Devon, not worth even a third of what they charge!
Such a delightful evening!!! Celebrated the birthday of my beloved PLUS a fantastic special for their bottles of wine at half price on Sunday night; could it get any better? YES!!! Great rainbow trout and fresh salmon! Their wait staff is superb; never anything less than stupendous!!! Super knowledgeable of all aspects of their menu. GREAT choice for lunch or dinner; make a reservation now!! You’ll really be happy that you did!!
Always wonderful experience and very delicious food, high quality service.
Devon is one of my 2-3 top restaurants in the area on my list. This time we ordered only appetizers, big portions, good price, especially during Happy Hour it's a steal!
Crab cakes could be more crusty, this time they were undercooked, but still very tasty.
Definitely will be back soon!
Went for my husband's birthday and because we had our almost 5 year old, we did the early sitting. They sat us perfectly off away from other diners (not as if we were pariahs but more so for comfort for everyone). Because I mentioned it was my husband's birthday when I made the reservation, our menu had a personalized message. Service was very good and just the right amount of attention. We all ended up ordering fresh fish of the day (except our son who went with grilled cheese off the kids’ menu). All was prepared wonderfully and was fresh & delicious. Dessert was remarkably good as well. There were a total of 5 of us but because we were there early on a Sunday, there was a special for 1/2 off all wine under $100. As a result our bill was not nearly as expensive as expected. I would definitely go there again.
This was my third visit. Have loved everything I’ve tried with just one exception. I can’t recommend the creme brûlée. It was thick and dry, not at all the consistency you’d expect. Service is always exceptional and those biscuits with honey butter are such a treat.
Very nice and welcoming (even though it is in a strip mall). We arrived early and they politely said they would get us in as soon as possible. They did! The food was amazing! Could not imagine better mixed seafood grill or steak and crab cake. The crab cakes are worth the price. Steak was done to perfection with just the right amount of char.
I love the lobster bisque soup in Devon but this dining experience was not as expected. I ordered lobster bisque cup and i could barely see/taste lobster. It was overly salted that overshodow the taste of the soup.
I hope that your chef will consider my feedback.
We've pasted the restaurant many times when we were out in the burbs and never thought to try it until my friend said she really enjoyed it when she went with some co-workers. Very happy we tried it. The shrimp taco appetizer was fantastic. My husband loved his panko breaded shrimp and my crab cakes were terrific. We will definitely be back.
Overall very good. Maybe a bit in the pricier side, but not too crazy. They REALLY need to fix the lighting. Others around us were complaining too. It’s like a giant spotlight on each table. Blinding if you lean in too much, you need to keep your head back to stay out of light. It’s really awkward.
