ask for the tables in the back with the sheer curtains. I want to be clear- the reason i would not order take out - as asked in the following question is bc the restaurant is very beautiful and one should eat in, and also I live way to far to get take out.

I had a reservation and was given the one awful 2 person table in the middle of the hallway between the kitchen, bathroom and booths. The hostess said they were fully booked but thankfully gave me a table that I saw was empty. If another table was not available I would have left. Get rid of that table!

Delicious dishes and exceptional, very friendly, spot-on service. Attractive space. Very nice drinks and decent wine. There were three of us and we were all impressed and will go back. Lovely. The Groupon menu, btw, was substantial!

As the "Best Of Devi" is rather expensive on its own so this groupon is a terrific way to sample the incredible flavors found at Devi.

Fabulous food, but be prepared for slow (but very pleasant) service.

From Our Editors

Devi is palatial, but not in the sense of unattainable grandeur?rather, it seems stuffed to the gills with earthly comforts and visual delights that completely insulate it from the world outside. ?There are restaurants that bring you back to yourself and those that spirit you away. Devi belongs to the latter group, delivering a heady retreat even when the odds against such an escape are longest,? wrote Frank Bruni in a two-star 2004 New York Times review. He also praised the ?pyramid-shaped rice puffs, too golden, crunchy and airy to permit unpleasant thoughts,? the ?faultless? lamb chops, and the ?splendidly moist? halibut.

The tandoor is responsible for the latter two dishes, and it?s a virtuosic instrument in the hands of Executive Chef Dheeraj Tomar, who learned its secrets in New Delhi before honing his expertise at five-star hotels in Dubai. Amid all the grilled meats, his menu is exceedingly vegetarian-friendly: a vegan harvest stir-fry brims with a cornucopia of produce, joining beyond-chana-masala dishes such as jackfruit biryani, corn-and-bean curry, and tandoor-grilled vegetarian malai tikka kebabs. The eatery?s meticulously constructed wine list eschews large wineries in favor of small-batch, handmade varieties selected for their ability to complement the cuisine.

Inside Devi?s two-story space, nearly every square inch that?s not covered in richly patterned fabrics or panels of gauzy raw silk is festooned with marble and carved wooden arches and balustrades, both imported from India. Lighting is whisper-soft and romantic, supplied by lanterns of ornate colored glass that cluster across the high ceiling like artisanal party balloons left behind after the birthday of a child prince.
