Food was great, wine list was short (likely being a Sunday night on a long weekend), service was terrific. Seems a bit out of place for Crescent Street, but actually a welcome respite from the tourist food
Good menu backed up with good food. Service was good and our server very pleasant. A great dinner. They are not noted for their wine list and have limited knowledge and availability, so not their strong suit.
Very good food
Understandable with pandemic
Look forward to coming again on our next trip
We didn’t get our food on time. Our order was incomplete. Our children left the restaurant hungry and annoyed. Horrible horrible do not book this if you want to have a good dinning experience! Never ever have I seen such service and they didn’t even remove items from the bill…. Imagine paying for things you didn’t receive!! This restaurant does not deserve to be open, no wonder it’s the most abandoned restaurant on a busy street, plus their reservations are always available that’s a red flag!!
It was my first time eating on Crescent Street and it was busy and a great atmosphere.
My friend is not very familiar with Restaurant cuisine generally so is a challenge for a server but the young lady was great.
I love Indian food and my meal and appetizer were delicious and the pitcher of Indian draft refreshing!
I look forward to coming again — hopefully very soon!
First of all, the waitresses were 0 help, which defeats the purpose of their actual job. Second of all through the use of this application I was able to book a table for 8:15 for two people, knowing the availabilities are short. Upon arrival there was a line of people waiting and they kept getting seated, when our turn came up we said we had a reservation and we were early btw. She immediately whispered “sh*t” and realized they don’t have a table to give us, rather than apologizing they figured out a table that basically had us seated on the street and probably would’ve been able to have a conversation with the customers beside us. We left and no apology or follow was made up on us. Don’t recommend, Montreal has much better to offer.
Unbelievably pathetic service. They will literally make you pack your own food if you have a little left over and would like to take it back home. Cold food. We didn’t even get spoons or paper napkins. Staff waiting on us were absolutely useless. I honestly regret taking my wife on her birthday to this stupid place. Worthless.
We were running a little late for our end of evening reservation. The restaurant called to be sure we were coming and they were very welcoming to our late group. They kept the kitchen open long enough to be certain we got our dinner. The food was wonderful and although the staff was ending their shift, they were patient and professional. Thank you for making our trip to Montreal just a little better!
All of our party enjoyed their dinners...food had perfect spice level for us.
Good downtown location....
We will return on or next trip to Montreal...
Cant say enough about the experiance at Chez Devi. The room is. Beautifully appointed and the seating is comfortable. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. But oh my THE FOOD was heavenly
Real fresh Indian flavors
Where we live Indian food is sometimes good but never great. At Chez Devi every dish we had was over the top delishious. Even our white rice had a fragrant cardamom seed on top.
The prices were fair and the portions were plentiful.
A great experiance over all!
J'ai été très déçue d'être accueillie par une hôtesse qui ne parlait pas un mot français.
Very tasty food. Great service.
We do not recommend this restaurant. It looks nice but we have had much better Indian Food and staff is rude. A place to avoid
Much quieter inside than outside! A little bit dark at the beginning, but fresh and cozy. The food is delicious, service efficient. La demoiselle s’est forcée pour nous parler en français, très apprécié.
My wife and I always enjoy going to Devi when we’re in Montreal. Food is always great. Service was a little slow due to a large party ahead of us.
Would definitely recommend.
I really enjoyed my dinner. Food was good and the service was great.
Restaurant was practically empty, but waitress seemed in a rush to clear our table before my wife was finished eating. The butter chicken was not as good as previous time; why did they change the recipe.
Dinner for two was perfect. Devi was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed! Good options dor vegetarians and everyone else. Delicious seasonings and a mix of Northern/Southern India spices
This restaurant was a great find - in fact I have no idea how I've missed it all these years! They had a lunch buffet but we opted to share a few plates instead - delicious! And the staff was so friendly. A definite gem - if you love Indian food you have to eat here!
Overall just ok it was a quiet evening only three tables
Food was mediocre almost like sauce from a jar at he grocery store nothing exciting
Service was attentive
Came here on my wedding anniversary which happens to coincide with Saint Patty’s day. I’ve been to some Indian restaurants in Montreal before and the quality is typically average compared to what you can find in Toronto, New York or Chicago.
However , this restaurant was one of the better Indian options in Montreal. Portions were decent size and while it’s a tad bit pricey, it’s in line with what you’d expect at a fine dining establishmen
Only things I didn’t care for was that the service was just OK, examples include the waiter bringing out the food in the wrong order and then not bringing out any silverware ... to eat with until we asked for it. Normally it could happen anywhere but given it we were there at 3pm when it was slow, I expected better service
Noise level was higher but then I would attribute that to the bar across the street and the occasion of st. Patty’s day.. so can’t really hold that against them.
I would give this place a shot again when in Montreal next time
We have been to Devi before and chose again to meet our granddaughter in Montreal for lunch. We were not disappointed! Great food and service. Thank you again for an outstanding experience.
Me and my girlfriend we really enjoyed our nye in devi the food was good and the staff was very nice
Very large portion of food. Very good
Michael, our waiter was very entertaining and super attentive. The food was great, definitely would recommend it.
Bruce and Janet
We visit Montreal annually and dine here each time, never disappointed.
Food quality was mediocre. Was not fresh. Hmmm...
Didn’t see the value for the money spent. Not worth it IMHO...
Our waiter , Mike was amazing and attentive at all times. Provided great insight on the food and other conversational topics during our dining stay.
The food was very good and tasty. The only gripe I personally have is that the spices aren't too powerful, if you like your food spicy, you may be mildly disappointed .
Great food and the lunch buffet was excellent! We had a splendid time
Great service, excellent food. Best Indian in Montreal !
This was a perfect place to have tasty Indian cuisine in a lovely atmosphere
Excellent restaurant indien. Cuisine variée et succulente. Atmosphère feutrée. En plein coeur du quartier de la rue Crescent.
Very nice restaurant with great food and service
Excellente cuisine indienne avec un service gentil mais un peu amateur. Décor défraichie et toilettes tendant vers l'insalubre.
Had a wonderful waiter and great food
This is our second visit to this restaurant. Our first occurred last year, while visiting Montreal for the first time.
The restaurant is located on the the wonderfully energized Rue Crescent.
We sat at a table for two, looking out on to the street.
The dishes were prepared just as we like (spiced hot) and authentic.
Our server was attentive, and very pleasant.
Great food and lovely service!
Excellent! Thank you for such great service and delicious food! Will be returning 😀
The service was friendly and attentive. But unfortunately, the food was disappointing. The curry was bland and more like a local gravy than an Indian specialty. The tandoori was also unusual and more like a family baked chicken than what I’ve grown to love at Indian restaurants. My first clue should have been that only one patron was in the place when I showed up.
The final hassle was that even though they had an OpenTable sticker on the door, they couldn’t get the system to work.
Très belle expérience un samedi soir, souper en tête-à-tête. Très bon service, en français. Le serveur a su bien nous expliquer le menu et nous aider à faire nos choix. Il n'y a pas de menu dégustation, ce que le proprio devrait penser à ajouter comme option puisqu'il y a plein de choses que nous aurions voulu essayer au menu. Nous avons donc opté pour la table d'hôte pour 2 (2 entrées + 2 plats principaux + 2 desserts) que nous avons partagée. Tout était très bon. Épicé mais pas piquant. Le pain naan est tout simplement exquis.
