We had a group of 4 go. Appetizers were Tuna Poke & Cauliflower Spicy they were absolutely delicious! I had the seafood combination platter, it was divine. I couldn’t finish it and believe me I wanted to eat every morsel!! Great for two people to share. Lobster Mac n cheese was a favorite for everyone! Steaks were great as well! You won’t regret eating here, everyone agreed- it was one of the highlights of our trip!

There were 5 of us as a group of friends from Australia. Food in Chicago can be expensive so we had the three course prix-fixe...it was amazing value and the food was incredible.

Went for my anniversary - they seated us in a semi private dining room with free champagne and dessert. Out of this world, honestly.

Ordered king crab legs and received a pile of legs that were skinnier than most snow crab legs. Shaw’s and Chinns way better.

The service was quick and friendly. The food was excellent and the portion size very big. I especially liked the cauliflower. The fish is fresh and you can really tell the difference between fresh and frozen. Desert menu looked good but we had no room for it. Would go there again.

Our server was very pleasant. Calimari VERY overdone to the point of being burned; we sent it back and the manager did not charge us for it. The crab cakes had crab, but not the lump advertised. The mixed seafood grill was not only over cooked, but the only flavor was garlic. The taste of the seafood should shine through...what a shame to hide it with garlic!

Our evening was great. All of the food was delicious our server was attentive and friendly.This was my third time at Devon Seafood Grill and my guest's first time. All of us left satisfied and happy. I deeply appreciated the little birthday card left on our table for my daughter, whose birthday we were celebrating. We also appreciated the area we were seated, which was separated from the main dining area and allowed us to celebrate privately. We had a wonderful evening.

We received our soup and salad then waited almost an hour for our entrees. About an half hour after our first course, a different server noticed we were still waiting, curtly placed biscuits on the table and bluntly stated "eat this while you're waiting." No explanation was provided on the delay. As we decided to leave they came out with one of two dishes ordered. We departed. Nice place, unhappy customers.

My wife and I made reservations relatively early on a Saturday evening. We found the place almost empty. Not sure why. The food was really very good, and the pricing wasn't exorbitant for this sort of restaurant. The service was just unbelievable. Might have been because they weren't busy, but still, cordial, attentive, and swift. The downstairs area is well away from the street bustle, and provides great intimate seating arrangements. The place is walkable from most downtown tourist haunts -- it's very near the Miracle Mile, and we walked to it from the Palmer House.

I really enjoyed the service from our waiter Isaiah and the food was more than delicious. I will definitely go back again. The only thing that was unpleasant was that it was very cold where we were sitting. I got very chilled. Our waiter noticed and turned up the heat but it did not last for very long. I appreciate the fact that he even noticed and tried to correct it. We were upstairs by the window which I liked because we could people watch but I think next time I will request a downstairs table. It seemed a bit warmer down there.

The food was just OK. My $50 Ribeye was cooked correctly inside but seared so much it had a burned crust on the outside. I could only eat a third and I took the rest home for the dog. My wife’s salmon was ok. It tastes frozen which is disappointing at this price point. You can get better food for a much better value elsewhere.

We have been a fan of Devon's for a long time. Outstanding fresh seafood but many people don't realize their steaks are excellent, as well! Lots of choices. Prices are on the higher side but definitely worth the splurge.

My husband and I are from out of town and went here for an anniversary dinner. We were pleasantly surprised - the service was phenomenal, the food was delicious (I got the seafood sampler and he got the 7 spice Japanese swordfish), and the ambiance was great. Their crème brulee was delicious and their homemade ice cream was just as good as Steel City Pops! I got the mango, peach, and passionfruit sorbet.

We didn't order wine, but got a complimentary champagne toast for our anniversary! It was a perfect night to enjoy and reflect on our blessings, and this restaurant only made it better. We would come back here again!

Always love going here for the food and the ambiance. Whether I feel like sitting in a quiet dinning area below or doing some excellent people watching out of their floor to ceiling glass windows in their bar area...I always have a great time. Come here every year for my birthday for the carrot cake!

Excellent fresh seafood. Had seared halibut and friend had lobster bisques, lobster tail & creme brulee which she thoroughly enjoyed. Service was friendly but lacked proper timing. My appetizer took too long to arrive and got to table only a few minutes before my entrée. I was not finished and server crowded table to fit entrée. Not professional at all. Overall though a great experience. I would come back.

They respected our reservation for a small private room, but not without a lot of conversation. Was told they are reserved and I suggested that I was one of the people who reserved it. Both men in our party have difficulty walking: one uses a cane and the other a scooter. The food was very good, except, my Caesar salad looked like it came from the bottom of the bowl - all bits and ends, The Salmon was delicious and everyone else enjoyed their meal. They accommodated our request for fruit for dessert even though it was not part of the prix fixe. We will be back.

This was one of the best seafood meals I’ve ever had. My wife the cioppino and I had the seafood grill. We started with calamari and some oysters. The calamari was tender and lightly breaded mixed with jalapeños and sweet potatoes. The cioppino was flavorful and the seafood was tender. All the portions were large so I’d say one entree and one appetizer would be enough for two to share. Great experience, we’ll be back.

We love this place and have been here often. I especially like the seafood and risotto but this tine was disappointed in both. The halibut tasted more like cod loin, which we have often at home, than halibut. I was very disappointed in that and in the Risotto which had too much lemon in it, not sure I would come again. Our bill with tip was $150 and felt very disappointed in this meal.

The highchair seating on the ground floor can be somewhat awkward, causing a person to have to search for a place to place their feet. Otherwise, a superior spot for a husband & wife.
