We met friends after the Astros game on Saturday for dinner. We had never been before but were very pleasantly surprised. The service was outstanding and the food was very good. We will definitely be going again.

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.

We enjoyed our dinning experience at Devine Affair! The cabernet was delicious and paired well with the bread basket. The heirloom tomato and arugula salad was great and the homemade vinaigrette was super yummy. We shared the seafood pasta and eggplant parmesan. Both were outstanding. Service was fine. We will go back to enjoy the piano music and dinner!

The restaurant is hidden at the end of a strip mall, but don’t pass it up!!! The atmosphere, staff was perfect for our married couple date night. The waiter was very knowledgeable on the food and wine menu. He recommended a rose that was not on the list. The pasta dishes we had were amazing and the portion size was perfect. The tirimasu was almost too pretty to eat! 🎉🍾💕

I went a few years ago and didn't think it was the best, but decided to give it another try for an early anniversary dinner...wasn't worth the try. There are much better places to eat. I won't go again.

Wife and I went for quiet dinner. Food was good, wine was good and reasonably priced, service was excellent. It is very nice inside, the location is in a small shopping center so a bit deceiving. Overall we really enjoyed it and will likely go back (we live in Sugar Land so a slight drive but worth it).

As a party of four we enjoyed our meals, having sampled meat, chicken, fish and a sandwich.
Food quality has never been a issue here. But once again we had slip-ups in service. Still like
the place, but it's annoying.

We enjoyed a delicious meal with even better service. The chef came out to personally greet us, and each member of the waitstaff was professional, attentive and very personable. The human element combined with the beautifully presented and tasty food made for a really enjoyable evening away from the kids for my husband and me. I wish we had tried this place sooner. We will be back!

Devine was wonderful as always. The Chef will go the extra mile to make sure you are served exactly what you want the way you want it. The pecan crusted red snapper was so yummy. It had actually been a specialty on another night that we were unable to attend, so I asked if he could make it for me, tho he had some other wonderful specials for the night. The answer was 'of course, ' we would be glad to do it for you.' and It was wonderful.

We have been long time customers and we have been pleased by the recent changes--really tweaks more than "changes". The new menu items give the diner a wider selection in food style and really help to freshen the whole experience. In addition to liking the new items on the menu I have to admit that the older items that were retained were essentially the cream of the crop off the old menu so we now find that we like both the old and the new. Service is good and the presentation and preparation on everything we have had recently was also above average. The neighborhood restaurant business is tough but management here is successfully thinking their way through it and thereby remaining relevant. Applause please.

I was there with a business associate and we wanted to talk. We sat outside and aside from some traffic nearby, we were able to enjoy the nice Houston weather and converse freely. We both ordered the blue cheese hamburger, which was very good. Our server was friendly, yet professional and appropriately attentive.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

My family has been dining at this fine neighborhood gem very consistently and for a few years. Executive Chef and GM Dane George just revamped the entire menu and it is magnificent. His specials continue to get better and better. Last night we tried the Mexican Corn Soup and it was superb. Everything on the menu is first class and the quality never misses. I totally and highly recommend this restaurant. You Will not be disappointed.

We loved our experience at The Devine Affair. The food was fantastic; however, our waiter chose to pay more attention to his girlfriend rather than our table, which would have had our drinks and wine available at an earlier time. Pay more attention to your clients rather than your personal life. Other than that issue, we loved the meal.

Wife and I found this place via OpenTable and we couldn’t be happier. This local gem is kind of tucked away in a shopping center, so you may not really notice it being there. Restaurant boasts a small patio, bar area (wine and beer only), and (guesstimate) around 30 or so tables. Fare is mix of Italian and American Steakhouse. Wife and I were in the mood for a steak and they did not disappoint. Steaks were cooked very well and had lots of flavor. The Au Gratin potatoes were fantastic! Considering how good the steak was, I’m sure we will be back in to try the Italian fare. Go in confidence!
