About

Devonshire Terrace lies 5 minutes walk from Liverpool St in the beautiful glass-domed Western Courtyard of Devonshire Square.

The venue itself, with its remarkable double sided balconies, one completely covered by a high glass roof, is unique and jaw-dropping. The restaurant/bar has four private rooms complete with sliding doors giving access to a balcony area and heated terrace. The high up glass roof and heaters on the outside terrace give it a year round appeal and help to create the air of escapism that you feel as soon as you walk into Devonshire Terrace.

The restaurant menu features a range of modern European dishes created and prepared by our own chefs.

The service wasn't that great though the staff were friendly. The halloumi salad was overpriced for what it was, most if it was green leaves and a tiny bit of beetroot and halloumi. Definitely not worth the money they charged. The sandwiches looked quite nice although one of the party actually left some of the bread as it was huge! The chips were a little greasy.

e will go back and just try something else!W

I use Devonshire Terrace quite often - for its location and because I know I can get reasonable food, sensibly priced and the tables are spaced well enough apart so that you can have a business conversation. It doesn't wow - that's not the point of it - but it's very reliable.

Good venue for a business meeting; quiet but with atmosphere. Conveniently located for Liverpool Street station. Tables are well spaced so you can get some privacy. Service could have been quicker.

Went for an informal lunch with colleagues. They have a good menu, not too long with enough veggie/fish choices. The staff were very pleasant and the atmosphere calm. Very easy have a conversation and settle in for the afternoon.

I was hunting around to find a suitable venue for a post Christmas team breakfast and came across the Devonshire Terrace.

Four of the team ate there, inside, and the venue is very elegant. The staff were attentive, even if we were the only customers at that time.

Between the four of us we had two full English breakfasts, one eggs benedict and an eggs royale.

All the meals were first rate and good value for money. We intend returning to try out their lunchtime and evening menus at some point.

The food was excellent and everyone in my party was very happy with their order. The restaurant is nicely decorated and had a nice buzz over lunch Xmas season. Would go to this restaurant again.

The first thing to strike me was that this didn't feel like a chain - the staff were very engaged and engaging at a busy lunchtime, and provided friendly and very efficient service. My two lunch partners went for truffle tortelloni with crisp Jerusalem artichoke and lemon, globe artichoke & chive butter and gnocchi with butternut squash, rocket, rosemary oil and sage, and declared themselves very happy indeed with those. I had pan-roasted cod with crayfish tails, lobster bisque and crispy leeks - hugely flavoursome: perhaps I might have taken something a little edgier that Muscadet sur Lie (but that was my choice). Much enjoyed all round.

Had lunch here for 4 people. Greeted well and were able to sit outside for pre-meal drinks. The menu was good but as one of the party was gluten free, it was disappointing a restaurant of this standard did not offer a gluten free menu. However, there were a few items on the main menu that were ok. Overall the food and service was good to very good but one of the dishes was warm at best and the side dishes of veg had cooled by the time they got to the table. Overall there is room for improvement for the price we paid (2 courses for around £45 per head including a bottle of wine for £27) but I would go back to give it another go.

I had high hopes walking in as the ambience was nice and quiet. I had avocado on bread that was completely burnt on the underside. The pancakes were burnt in places as was the eggs Benedict.
I was extremely disappointed and when it was pointed out to the waiter so that the chef could be informed, to save other diners, it was brushed aside and no apologies were given.

There were only 2 other tables occupied and so I would have expected the service to be better but it was slow.
Overall, it was awful.

Good nosh - had the sharing board and a couple of sides. So wasn't a heavy full meal but still filling. Service was pleasant but took a while to get the bill despite being relatively quiet. Must be quite nice in the summer outside.

Little 'Gem' tucked away at the back of Devonshire Square. Breakfast was superb. The atmosphere was quiet and restful which was a great way to start the day and the service was attentive but not overly so, allowing you to call when needed and they didn't smother you. The food was presented beautifully and all of it arrived hot! When we asked for some additional items these were found and nothing was too much trouble. The cost was reasonable and we left very happy - Thank you!

Went here for my wive's birthday dinner as a casual dinner after arriving from a abroad trip. We only arrived around 9pm on a Monday and we were the only diners. It was still nice and we enjoyed the food (there were some good seafood and meat tapas). The only thing is that if there is a large party drinking outside in the courtyard or inside it can get quite loud. We sat far so it didn't bother us. We had good service and enjoyed it even with the limited menu.

A very pleasant leisurely Friday lunch. Service was very speedy although I believe our waiter was probably a new member of staff because there was an awkward wait while he tried to unscrew our bottle of wine and then he spilled it when pouring on more than one occasion. But that certainly didn't spoil our time there. Food was lovely and ambience was great - so we'll be back.

Another consistent meal at Devonshire Terrace.

Service which has in the past been a little hit and miss on occasion was great, finding us a table outside in the sunshine which was appreciated.

Food was excellent, no complaints from any of my party. Mains are competitively priced compared to most places in the area, and although we couldn't manage desert they looked good especially the cheese. Would recommend you try Devonshire Terrace at least once!

Consistent food quality and service are what keep us coming back as a team to Devonshire Terrace. Service is always friendly and helpful - they are happy to accommodate specific requests.

Starters came straight away but they forgot our order for the main course ... people who came after us were on their desert by the time we got our order.

However, first time this has happened here and its a great place to go when the weather is good!

Having looked at the menu online, together with reviews this seemed promising for both Swordfish-lovers and fussy vegetarians. Delighted to arrive and be shown to a lovely (high) table in the sunshine. Bliss! The menu arrives after hunting down a very pleasant waitress and unfortunately this is completely different to that advertised on the internet! No swordfish in sight and my vegetarian friend who cannot eat goats cheese was very limited on options (contrary to earlier reviews/menus we suppose). Not to give up on the lovely venue we asked if the chef would mind replacing goats cheese with cheddar or some other hard cheese, unfortunately they could not accommodate any deviation from this menu and so we had to leave with empty tummies and total disappointment!

We sat on the other side of the open wall between kitchen and restaurant. The bench against the wall looked terrible. Ripped open old gum on it, i was with clients quite embarrassing, service very uncordinated, forgetting the table, forgetting to ask drinks, forgetting to ask for coffee, no cutlery, wrong size fork for main course, number of glasses not fit for number of people.
No not a good show, this time, not sure if i will come agian, and usually i do visit your restaurant at least once a month. food was good. Im not sure if i can recommebnd the restaurant after this experience.

First time here, early lunch on a Wednesday so not as noisy and some have mentioned (thankfully) but despite getting more lively later in the meal, the noise was never so loud that we couldn't have a decent discussion. I started with pigeon breast, quite decent, and then tuna nicoise salad. I was pleased to be asked how I wanted the tuna cooked (no can of tuna opened here :) and having asked for it rare was pretty happy with how it arrived. Three 2-course meals followed by coffee (no alcohol consumed) came to £91 including service charge, which wasn't too bad considering the location, a 5 minute walk from Liverpool Street station. Service was OK, although the staff did forget a couple of items that we ordered (including the bill) and needed reminding.

There are other good options in the same glass-covered square, including a very good Indian.

The food was absolutely delicious. My fellow guests and I were impressed and were considering this as a venue for our next team lunch or Christmas lunch, but decided against it, as the acoustics are not condusive to having a conversation across a large table.

Took a client here and the food was delicious (best steak I've had for a while). The look and feel of the place was very nice as well with the tables quite spread out meaning you have privacy. Only thing that was a negative is that the postcode does not take you to the restaurant so make sure you look it up before.

Took my goddaughter for lunch as we cannot meet up over Christmas. Good ambiance - we had a free table either side of us so could chat away without overhearing others or being overheard.
We both had the pigs cheek starter which was delicious and tender - the meat could have been cut with a spoon. They prepared the goddaughter's especially without butter. She had the tuna nicoise - tuna excellently cooked and such a good portion that she could not quite finish. I had the pumpkin ravioli which was very tasty - the pasta being al dente and the pumpkin a smooth puree.
I liked the wide range of choice on the menu - starters, salads, sandwiches, fish, meat & sides as she was going to work at 4 pm so we both had lots of options.
There were Christmas parties going on so it was great that they seated us in a quieter area of the room. There were plenty of staff who served us at different times - everyone took ownership - it was not one of those 'I'll tell your waitress' kind of places. The ultimate accolade is that goddaughter will suggest to her Mum next time they meet for lunch!

Went there for lunch on a weekday, it was packed with business lunches and Christmas parties. The staff were really nice but it was almost impossible to make eye contact or grab one when you needed them. It took ages to actually order our meal and they also forgot our drinks, however the food did come out quickly once ordered, albeit a little cold, and was very tasty.

Pretty good for a business lunch but the 12.5% service charge is a bit cheeky.

Had a business lunch at Devonshire Terrace and was attracted by the comments I'd read about there being several vegetarian options on the menu. My 'citrus cous cous salad with roasted fennel & courgette' was a more interesting concept than many I've been offered in the City but lacked real flavour. I didn't detect any citrus and some of the fennel bits were a bit stringy and difficult to cut & eat. Interesting concept but missed something. I would go again but try something else

My colleague from New York enjoyed his grilled tuna nicoise salad.

Very busy and very noisy but service was fine.

I booked Devonshire Terrace to meet up with old friends, having seen reviews which made it sound like a lovely venue with good vegetarian choices. Perhaps it is at lunchtime, but this evening neither lived up to their reputation. Yes, it was early December, but there was nowhere quieter to sit and the menu was limited and very disappointing. Not at all as we had hoped/expected.
