The location was lovely by the lake and wish we'd had a spot on the patio as the evening was warm and noise level was much better outdoors. We enjoyed playing table tennis while we waited for our table. Food was a little disappointing. Afraid we could not wholeheartedly recommend the vegetarian options - the chickpea burger and the eggplant dish. Service was great.

We were seated 35 minutes after reservation away from the main dining area beside a computer terminal used by staff. Food came after 1:45 minutes. The first two picks were sold out. Waiter was great but no apology from management. Until the staff shortages are rectified, I would never recommend this place.

Our waiter, a Brit, was attentive and charming despite the pressures on him in a clearly understaffed situation. Food was lukewarm, turkey tough. Our reservation was made well in advance but our table looked like a last minute addition apart from dining room in an alcove to the service area. We moved outside which was lovely but chilly. A heater would have helped. Generally a disappointing night. Would not recommend as good dining but the deck is lovely and probably fine for basic pub food items.

Le Devonshire se targue d’être un lieu « haut de gamme ». Pour le décor; c’est exacte; beau et actuel. La terrasse est belle, mais il ventait trop pour y être le jour de notre visite. Cependant, sa réputation est surfaite pour l’expérience restaurant. Nourriture vraiment ordinaire, sans originalité ni présentation soignée. Il s’agissait du brunch. Le café n’y est pas bon; les gaufres semblent faites à l’avance et réchauffées. Le service assez décevant. Une attente de plus de 25 minutes avant de recevoir nos assiettes (peut-être à cause de la pénurie de personnel due à la Pandémie?), toasts renvoyés car le pain n’est pas grillé/ reviennent avec de nouvelles aussi peu grillées et non beurrées cette fois!; aucune offre d’un réchaud de café sans qu’on le demande. Bref, baissez vos attentes si vous visitez cet endroit.

A great place to be in PEC. Limited choices on our visit (no lamb..) but an extensive wine list featuring numerous local producers.

I was very disappointed in the menu. The last time we were there, I had a seafood soup that was excellent. This time, there was nothing. My wife and I split a hamburger, had salad and fries. The latter were excellent.

I still have a gift card for $100, but I will be very carefull of the menu selections before I go back

We brunched for my sisters 40th!
Your restaurant is so lovely and your staff was awesome! Brigette made our experience! She was so friendly, gave us great suggestions, took the opportunity to “up-sell” and we went for it!!
Fantastic experience!

It was a cool spot but I would say our server seemed super busy, she took a long time to refill our water and didn't automatically provide a steak knife. Little things but not what I expected. The appetizers were amazing, the mains OK.

This was my second time at the Drake Devonshire. I planned a weekend away in PEC for my fiancé’s 30th birthday and was so excited to get reservations here on the evening of his birthday. Sadly, the place seems to have really gone downhill since the last time I was able to dine here. We waited for some time to be seated while the hostess “checked what tables they had available” - despite having reservations. They also didn’t check for our proof of vaccination although we had it ready with our IDs out.

After we were seated, we waited almost 15 mins to be greeted by our waiter. When he finally came, instead of taking our drinks order, he told us he would be right back after dropping off the bills at the table of 8 next to us. He then proceeded to check out each person at that table - they all paid separately which took a few mins. He then disappeared for another few mins before finally returning to take our drinks order. We waited 30 mins to get WATER. We waited even longer for our drinks. There were many empty tables around us (on a Saturday) so I’m not sure what the issue was. The waiter was apologetic but nothing else was done to make up for the long wait.

The menu was not very exciting. The food was decent but nothing to rave about. It was so cold in the restaurant that we decided to cork our wine bottle and go finish it at our B&B. Overall, I was very disappointed by the whole experience.

Menu had odd choices.
A $20 burger?? Not worth it and it was only just warm when it arrived.
Server was pleasant but occasionally forgetful.
Dining room was lovely and the view
beautiful but was extremely noisy.
We weren’t in your demographic but we’ve been to many excellent, expensive restaurants that were worth the expense.

We had an excellent brunch. Our food was delicious and the service very good. We were fortunate to be facing the view of the water and to be able to walk out to the water after brunch. The only small criticism was not to be able to park on the premises.

Poorly organized with one server to too many tables. She was frustrated, it was too obvious. Ruined the atmosphere. Waited 30 minutes to be seated for a table that was empty because the server was overwhelmed. Requested table near window wks before hand which they couldn’t accommodate even though guests were sat into those empty tables while we waited.

We all wanted to sit outside but not possible yet it was not busy outside! So half of us stayed in and the 4 others went out. The staff seemed disorganized as to the available sitting out and what time we could take our seats. This online bking and never able to speak on the phone and bk. and get a better sense of how the establishment is proceeding in these times is unknown. The food is always good and fresh and well presented but accommodating a group up to 12 people not so much. Thanks

Cool place for drinks and basic lunch. The view and ambiance are the selling point. Has a potential to be great but needs to give more attention to combinations of ingredients and details such as sauces and salad dressing, the food taste was so-so for both dishes.
