My wife and I had our regular Saturday evening dinner here at The Devine Affair on Memorial and as usual it never disappoints. I had the Seared Diver Scallops with a Sweet Corn Puree finished with a Corn-Chorizo-Potato Hash. The Executive Chef Dane George nailed it. If you have not dined here before you are missing out in a huge way. The best neighborhood gem ever.

We had passed this corner for years but we just discovered Devine Affair. We will definitely add it to our list of places we want to return. We were 6 people and everyone enjoyed their choice. We were celebrating a birthday and they very nicely brought his choice with a lighted candle.

Went for my wife's birthday and it was fantastic. The service and food were excellent, and the value was spot on as well. Everyone in our family tried a different meal, and all were enjoyed. We’ll be back for a date night soon.

I had a dinner party of 7. Everyone loved the food. Delicious and well prepared. We are a little bit older so it is hard to talk over ambient noise and we were right next to the wonderful piano. The music was lovely but we just needed it away from us. The food is just awesome. Our waiter, Andrew, was great too. Attentive but not hovering and he made us feel appreciated and at ease. The chef is to be commended for his great tasting and beautifully presented food.

Food and service has always been great here. We usually sit on the patio because they allow dogs and pamper him while we are there. What a great option - good food, nice quiet patio, and a chance to allow our pup to socialize. We like the food and wine selections and have been pleased at the attentive service and gracious visits by the chef. It was a new Houston restaurant to visit for our friends from Mexico City. They were quite pleased.

Food was fantastic. We were in the mood for Italian and did a quick search online and was surprised to see The Devine Affair come up as we thought it was just a Wine Bar. The menu was great and everything on the menu is made from scratch at the restaurant. We will return. Great date night location.

3rd time to this restaurant and loved it even more than before. The food was perfection, the service was speedy but not intrusive. Value was high and left feeling really full, relaxed and just enjoyed the whole experience. I highly recommend as a comfort and fine dining experience as well as a neighborhood gem.

The atmosphere was OK, server was OK, food adequate. Nothing was special. This was my first time, I had wanted to try the restaurant for a while. Reservation was 7:30, when we went to order, the items we were each interested in were sold out.
I also enjoy a cocktail before dinner, not an option.

Great neighborhood gem. Not very big, so make sure you make a reservation. My girlfriend is Italian descent, and she loved the food. Our waiter was excellent, very knowledgeable and down to earth. We will definitely return (NOTE TO RESTAURANT: get a better piano player ... while the gal was sweet, she was struggling as if she was in a piano class ... this was a minor issue, not related to overall quality experience).

This was a "business meal" but we're all friends, so it's more of a friends' get-together.
This was our first time here. Party of 6. I picked the place as I try to provide a great meal and experience for my team. The Devine Affair did not disappoint. In fact, they knocked it out of the park. We hung out at the bar for pre-dinner cocktails. Bryan (I believe is his name) served us there and was perfectly entertaining, but not too much. It was just the right amount of adding to the conversation without taking over our visiting. He's a character, by the way -- a good thing. Bryan then was our server for the night. He gave some great recommendations but all of the food was fantastic. Not one thing wasn't amazing. The service and food were both spot on. We had such a hard time deciding what to order, we all kind of said we'd need to come back.

Thank you for a job well done, both in the way of service by Bryan and the culinary creations that were to die for.

Being long term customers we know what to expect here: solid food, quality ingredients and polite servers. The ingredients are consistently of good quality and freshly prepared. The wine list is adequate, however the fairly new addition of allowing BYOB is a plus for us as we have a sizeable collection including rarer Italian wines. The staff is always curious as to "what is in the bag" and therefore we try not to disappoint. This week my wife ordered her fairly consistent choice of the scampi/scallop combination. We both agreed it was better than usual which means as good as it gets. The scallops were huge, juicy and properly seared. The pasta, sauce and shrimp were also very good.

We plan on returning soon as this place is a great asset to the neighborhood. The construction work on Memorial has been a true logistical challenge but we can see the work at this intersection finally ending so hopefully the better access will result in even more people being able to enjoy this very nice westside restaurant.
