    Our party of four met for lunch. Service was fine, drinks were good. Unfortunately, our lobster bisque and shrimp and grits were extremely salted. The soup was edible the grits were not. We chose not to return the dish as the four shrimp were enough food for me to eat.

    My husband and I came here for our first anniversary and it was a great place to celebrate. Awesome food and really cool look inside. We enjoyed the 1/2 off bottle of wine offer on Sunday. I got the mixed seafood grill which was exceptional and he enjoyed the surf and turf with scallops. We'll definitely be back!

    The drinks were horrible....never order the Sangria red or white! Secondly, the biscuits were like rocks...often ask our waitress for the next batch....every other table received fresh ones...ours never came. But that wasn't all....we ordered ribeye's, only for our waitress to come back and tell us that someone else just ordered the last one for the night (this was 9 pm on a Saturday night). Three strikes....but, there's more. After all of that, she still had the nerve to bring us a bill for our ice teas. Needless to say, we left and walked down the block to our favorite, DelFrisco's, where we should have gone in the first place!

    We had dinner last Saturday night to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We were a party of six. It was wonderful in every respect. The ambience, the service and the food were outstanding. Before sitting down, I surreptitiously asked the hostess if they could put candles on my daughter's dessert. When the dessert arrived, no only was a candle on hers, but also on her friend's dessert whose birthday was a couple of day's away, which I had not known. Amazingly, they did not charge us for the two desserts! We will definitely be back soon.

    I debated on the perfect spot in the city for my boyfriend's birthday and chose Devon after considering several others. We came for a special occasion and at a restaurant with the reputation of Devon, you just expect top quality food and service. The food was great, but the waiter seemed half asleep and you could barely hear him speak -- disappointing experience.

    All was fabulous only one noticeable inconsistency ... The menu printed daily was sloppy and in formatted and as a sign of a high priced well detailed operation wS a sign of inconsistency nor lack of attention. Scott the manager should check them daily before using them .... I know its a detail but a sloppy menu is a sign of lack of attention to detail and mAkes patrons what A&E is not happening in the back of the house. Just a recommendation.

    Dined at Devon for my birthday. The food was very good; I recommend the smoked salmon flat bread and the pretzel crusted trout. Hubby rated his swordfish entree as very good. We had a terrific waiter who was attentive and very good at explaining various dishes and making recommendations. The only hiccup in our dining experience was being seated in an area there was a large group which slowed the pace of being served our entrees, hence the 3 star rating for service on this visit. Our waiter was apologetic, updated us needed and comped our desert. For the food and ambience we will return.

    It's difficult to find a restaurant these days where the noise levels are conducive to pleasant conversation at a normal tone of voice ....especially when two of the three guests have hearing issues. In a back of the house booth at Devon we had that pleasant experience of being able to relax over a tasty lunch and have a conversation where we did not need to shout over the table. My lump crab cakes were exactly that ...lump crab; the vegetable sides were fresh and cooked perfectly. My two friends both had a salad topped with grilled salmon and they were equally happy with their choice. One thing is that if you like fish cooked "well" you need to ask. The server was attentive without being overbearing.

    Special dinner! I had the Caesar salad which was awesome; my husband had the Lobster Bisque (which he told me was heavenly). I had the seared scallops; my husband had the swordfish. Both meals were wonderful - the scallops melted in my mouth. We ordered a Napa Valley Reisling wine with dinner which was excellent. The server seemed to be overwhelmed with all of the sidewalk tables, but we did receive our food and it was hot and delicious. We weren't in a hurry because we were facing Rittenhouse Square on a lovely summer evening - it was perfect.

    Always saw a crowd when passing by so decided to see what the draw was all about; happy we did! The ahi tuna melted in my mouth. Great variety of dishes to select and have to go back to try the other creations that caught our eye. Started the meal off right with the lump crab cakes. Hearty but light and two delicious dipping sauces to accompany them. The portion of the salmon panzanella was very generous, and of course, delicious. The flavors are clean and light and truly focus on enhancing the natural flavor of the fish. Great pricing and they reward quite generously when you sign up for emails (coupons, free apps or desserts on special dates, etc.). Didn't get a chance to try dessert but the dishes that passed by were mouthwatering.

    The seafood at this restaurant was very good and our table at the open restaurant front allowed us to overlook Rittenhouse Square and people watch. The Power lunch of that phenomenal tomato and mozzarella like cheese accompanied with a pesto like ice cream ball was enough to come back for alone. The jumbo lump crab melt and fries were more than enough to complete the power lunch duo; very filling and delicious too.

    We went with friends for lunch and were not disappointed. The menu was varied and one could have a lovely fish platter with soup or salad as a starter for a reasonable price. They also offer superb salads and sandwiches. Sitting across from Rittenhouse Square with wonderful weather was also a plus. Highly recommended.

    excellent food (except for the dry artichoke) -- and our waiter Mike was really nice and attentive. The only problem was that the hostess initially seated us in a passageway near the bathroom and bar. I had to request to move to the main dining room, which is quiet and good for conversation. (We were a party of four.) Her decision was strange as it was 5:30 pm and the restaurant was nearly empty.

Crab melt on bread somewhat soggy & crab hardly recognizable. Bland taste..had much better lunches there...this was not "powerful" But the soup made up for it.
