We came to Devon for our two-year wedding anniversary. When we arrived at our table, there was a card congratulating us and wishing us happy anniversary. The restaurant provided complimentary champagne and dessert to ensure the evening was special. Good food and great service. We will be back.

Service was great. Three course prix fix option is a pretty decent deal. The lobster bisque was outstanding. Maple glazed salmon very good and my friend liked the Japanese seasoned swordfish.

Our overall experience at Devon Seafood was great.
The staff was friendly the food was absolutely delicious and the portions were worth the money.

My only call out is that we had the worst table in the restaurant.
Not sure why they sent us facing the kitchen when the restaurant was not even half full.

Remarked on reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived at our table there were small hearts sprinkled and s note offering gratis champagne and dessert
We live the warm biscuits they serve and both of us enjoyed our entrees. I had fresh rainbow trout and my husband had the cioppino and we shared a nice sized piece of carrot cake. The service started out very slow but once a waiter explained our waitress had a large private party and thought her tables were covered; he took care of us

The street-level bar was busy and energetic but the bartenders were attentive. The downstairs dining room was quiet although not very busy. Service was good but took 10m to get noticed.

I've eaten in the bar area several times and am always satisfied. Entrees and appetizers are enjoyable. I don't eat many sweets so I can't comment on desserts. I'm always here on a Sunday so it's nice to have 50% off most bottles of wine. Service was efficient. I'll be back.

food quality & service attention was outstanding! Only held back a 5-star rating as kitchen was a bit backed up and slow...fortunately we were not in a hurry, so the relaxed pace of 3 hrs for party of 4 was still enjoyable.

Very good food for a great value, especially their 3-course Prix fixe. Fantastic service from Isaiah, good wine options, and wonderful location and decor. We will be sure to visit the Milwaukee location after this visit in Chicago.

Terrible. We went for Happy Hour and the only way you can use the Happy Hour menu is to sit at the upstairs or downstairs bar. The server was so busy telling us what we couldn’t have , like no coke refills and only red or white bar wine it was really a turn off. Will never go back again. A waste of time and money.

The food was hit or miss. Some items were great but some were not, like the scallops. They were over-cooked and too chewy. The seared tuna was ok. The whole fish (grilled branzino?) was very good. The service was excellent...top notch. The desserts were underwhelming.

Before dinner we stopped for happy hour drinks and appetizers the happy hour martinis were only $8 and the oysters were $1 each. Then we went downstairs to the dining room for a quiet dinner. My cioppino was excellent and my friend's lobster salad was very good. Only disappointment was the restaurant not giving me a birthday dessert.

My wife Joy and I had a very good time. The downside is that we were there on a Tuesday evening so I don't think this is their normal run rate. Anywho, the service was personal, prompt and professional. The food was outstanding across the three dimensions of preparation, presentation and palette. I had the filet mignon, crab cake, Parmesan roasted potatoes and asparagus. Joy had salmon, lobster macaroni and cheese, fire shrimp, crab cake and asparagus. We shared each others dish and agreed on consistency and quality. For an appetizer, I had the lobster bisque soup which can only be described as heavenly. For drinks, I started with a scotch while we both enjoyed wine with our meals. The wines were perfectly paired. I would note that our server was on the younger side and couldn't offer much guidance on wine, but our selections were fine. For desert, we enjoyed the chocolate velvet cake. For Southerners and folks who know what velvet cake means, this is different. Its a chocolate cake with a ganache. However, its exquisite. Joy and I shared and enjoyed the accompanying raspberry ice cream. Bottom-line, its that its a great place. It features some private rooms for a more intimate setting. You should make a reservation, but it wasn't crowed. Reservation save you guessing if you can sit. One last point, they offer valet parking which is like $15. However, if you are lucky and use the Chicago Park app, you can park for $8.00 for two hours. However, given the menu prices, you don't go there on a budget. I strongly recommend it.

Poor service, sat for 20 minutes without being acknowledged, eventually had to get up and ask for a menu. Apparently our waitress didn’t see us...though there was barely any other customers. Food was decent, Salmon and potatoes were bland. Green beans very good. In short: the food looked better on the menu than it tasted.

The food was very good, atmosphere too. We visited on a Sunday night, bottles of wine were half priced, which was a nice surprise. Plus our waitress comped our two soups for no other reason than we were from out of town. Nice touch. Will return.
