Servers were great. Food wasn’t my style. Seafood almost had a Mexican taste to it. Tasted like taco sauce on swordfish

Food is outstanding. Half price bottles of wine on Sunday.
Gave us a private room for our group.

From the time we arrived the host and server were awesome. The problem is we ended up having to sit upstairs because it was busy and we had a reservation also. We were there for over an hour and had placed our order and didn't get our food until then. We ordered 6 oysters which were $3 each and they were very small. Wasn't able to enjoy those because they were so small. And I'm pretty sure whoever fixed them knew they were small. The server was awesome and had a great attitude and personality inspite of how I felt about the time it took to get the food out and the size of the oysters.

This was our first time eating at Devon Seafood Grill. We're from Indianapolis and were in town for birthday celebration and Cubs game. This was a 5 minute walk from our hotel. We all loved our meals and the wait staff was awesome! I highly recommend this restaurant.

Went here for birthday dinner and the food was delicious. Isaiah, our server was fantastic, he checked on us periodically brought our food out in a timely manner and had great personality. Menu is a bit pricey, happy hour eased the price of the appetizers. I will definitely go back.

Service was terribly slow. Too bad because the meal was delicious. My sidecar took about 15 minutes to come out. Server was kind to split the two entrees so my wife and I could enjoy a taste of both. It was not crowded at all - maybe an issue with the kitchen being understaffed. I’d go here again but two strikes and you’re out.

The individual constituent parts on the plate were good, but too much sauce wrecked the overall flavor profile. Would use much less or no sauce. Otherwise, was quite pleased with where they are headed with food.

First time at Devon's. We had a party of seven. Overall, the food was excellent. Our server seemed a bit distracted-drink orders were given to the wrong people, and one diner was not asked about a cocktail order (he was just skipped- strange). When reservations were made the web site had the daily fish options listed, which included North Atlantic swordfish. However, upon arrival to the restaurant, it was apparent that the web site was not accurate. While all of our choices were excellent, we had a diner that was looking forward to the swordfish. Perhaps, the daily fish options shouldn't be on the website.

We were seated downstairs which is certainly the less lively part of the restaurant- that worked ok since we had some visiting to do. Cocktails were good. Appetizers arrived quickly and service throughout the meal was very good. Our main courses were pretty good with the halibut being the favorite. The crab cakes were mostly crab which is a good thing. Note, you don’t get bread with your meals -you get biscuits. We asked for bread and were charged $2.50 as we later noticed on the bill. With tip, drinks and wine this was around $100 per person.
We will go back, but will probably try the happy hour upstairs.

Great place for an anniversary dinner.
I loved the ambiance of the place. We went on a weeknight and there was a happy hour atmosphere upstairs. But downstairs, it was quiet and relaxed. They had little hearts on our menu and a nice card wishing us a happy anniversary, along with complimentary champagne and dessert. I definitely would return to try more dishes. I really loved the lobster bisque and the crab cakes. We had filet mignon and trout. Both were cooked to perfection. Service was great. Staff was attentive and friendly.

Good but not exceptional. Visiting Chicago from London for an international conference and ate at Devon Seafood Grill with a friend. Food was good but experience marred by finding a long hair baked into the bread/scone provided at the start of a meal for my friend. In addition, cutlery was not very clean and when waiting staff took away cutlery from first course, they forgot to bring replacement cutlery for the entree. Service at the bar was excellent but service in the main restaurant appeared harried and perfunctory. It is a shame that aspects of eating here let down the very good cooking.
