Diner Reviews
  • "We arrived in Philly that day and wanted a nice relaxing evening after a long day of travel and sight-seeing. Devon was just what we wanted. I love a menu where there are so many choices it's hard to decide and after dinner you love your selections."

  • "Retirement dinner on a Monday night. Reservation for 7 and two colleagues who happened to be in town stopped by mid dinner. We had to squeeze them in at the table, but we had a small private space and it was no trouble for us. Our server seemed annoyed. She was inattentive and seemed bothered that we kept ordering more wine...She rarely checked on us. The total bill was nearly $1,000 and one would think that might warrant some additional attention on a Monday night. The special copper river salmon was delicious and folks enjoyed the oysters too. the halibut was a bit overcooked. Devon's signature used to be pouring the gumbo over rice tableside, but that didn't happen on this visit. Overall a disappointment on this visit."

  • "Great happy hr. Yummy cocktails and now $1 oysters. Yeah! The best biscuits around. Addictive. Nice selection of fish prepared healthfully and a good value with nice selection of two sides. Would be better if they offered and listed sustainable choices."

  • "For the prices, the food was fairly average. The service was just ok, not bad, certainly not great."

  • "I had my first experience eating at Devon's and I would go again. Our waiter, Mike suggested the wine, entree and dessert and all were fabulous."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The location is wonderful at this establishment. The food, especially the fish is even better. Always prepared just right and with the sides that are offered, you can't go wrong. I had the 1/2 grilled artichoke and lemon/asparagus risotto, both complimented the trout quite well and when our plates were cleared there was not a bite left to be had."

  • "Our service this evening was fantastic. We asked to be seated at an open window seat which was immediately ours. The waiter was attentive and friendly. The food was amazing. MOST of all I want to stress how good the crab cakes here are. I recently read an article in a magazine that claimed Devon had the best crab cakes in Philadelphia. So we gave it a test and I'm sure we'll be back often because they were delicious."

  • "Lovely views of Rittenhouse Square. Wait Staff is always there when you need them and not there when you don't. Food has always been better than good. I would send friends here. Inside is comfortable and again you can't go wrong with the fresh sea food, wine list, and service. This is a chain but because of the quality in all regards it never seems like a chain. We have chosen to be here at least six times during the past year because it has a great location, good food, good prices, good service."

  • "The food was real good. I loved the lobster Mac and cheese. Had margaritas and they not good, tasted cheap and too sweet. The restaurant is huge and nice inside but noisy. Not for a quiet dinner for two. There were few flies around us unfortunately . Our waitor forgot a steak knife for my filet , had to wait for that."

  • "Wanted a fun pl. with good seafood for dad's bday. We had an enjoyable eve. but not overly impressed with any particular feature of the restaurant. Crabcake entree (2 crabcakes) was expensive ($32) and not so fresh, ditto the mashed potatoes. Dad really loved the gumbo! Fresh oysters were good. Our table location, requested by phone earlier that day, was great: right by the open front of the restaurant overlooking Rittenhouse Sq. Great people watching on a beautiful night! Server came through with requested piece of choc. cake with a candle and said it was courtesy of Devon - nice touch! Wish he'd taken others' dessert orders prior to bringing it though b/c rest of us ended up forgoing dessert b/c bday boy had been served his already."

  • "Devon's food was outstanding. Unfortunately, even with our reservation some else got our table and we were seated in the bar area. Our waitress Anastasia was very good and very understanding about the table change. I have to say after tasting the food the table change was an after thought. Probably the best dinner my husband and I have had. We try a lot of restaurants but by far Devon Grille was the best. The restaurant also comp us our bottle of wine and our dessert to make-up for the table mix up."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We went to Devon with a gift certificate and will never go back. We ordered a dozen oysters to start and they arrived in two separate batches. None of the servers could tell us which oysters on the platter were which and had to go back to the bar to ask. The oysters themselves were insufficiently cleaned and came loaded with bits of shell. Our entrees were fine but wildly overpriced and over-salted. While the staff was friendly, we could have done with 5 minutes of uninterrupted time. They came over repeatedly to ask about how things were going and never allowed us to actually enjoy our time together. I can't recommend this restaurant with so many excellent, cheaper local options with fresher, tastier food and more knowledgable staff."

  • "Devon's is just a nice place to dine. It's been consistent since I first tried it. The food is great and fresh. Seafood if not cooked property can be all bad. I always get the seafood mixed grill 38$ but well worth it. There's a little bit of everything on that plate grilled asparagus Yukon mad potatoes salmon scallops shrimp crab cake & two dipping sauces to choose from. ALWAYS AMAZING. Devon's is a little pricey three drinks were 40$, To me a bit much but I'd recommend dining here for special occasion if your budget is tight. If I could afford it I'd eat here more often. Only thing that bugged me... My server gave the birthday cake to the wrong person. But other than that she was pleasant."

  • "I have heard of Devon but since moving to NJ we don't come to the city as often as we used to and this was our first trip to Devon....As we walked past the outdoor diners it was a most comfortable feeling many with their dogs alongside them...this will be our next visit but not today. We were thrilled to see the menu as our guests have an appetite for fresh fish and there were so many to choose from. Our server was lovely. Frankly she was a little scatter brained but her charm and warmth more than made up for it..."

  • "Great center city lunch option. Menu is not "adventurous" but that is what you usually wasnt for a business lunch."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "I have visited Devon for lunch on many occasions. There were 9 in our party this last visit and we were seated in the front on the restaurant. The food was good. However, it was noisy to the point that we had to yell to hear one another. A few in our party ordered the "power lunch" which is a 1/2 sandwich or salad and soup. There was a long wait between the first and second courses, then I had to hunt down the waiter to get the check. I'm not sure if they were short staffed or it was the waiter's first day on the job, but it shouldn't take an hour and half for lunch during the workday."

  • "Whether indoor or outdoor dining, Devon does not disappoint. The meal portions are of decent size. The bar area is hopping during the happy and dinner hour but late night it is usually low key."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Devon s is a must go sea food stop on Rittenhouse Square. The food is always interesting and the menu changes frequently so your taste buds never get bored. The complementary biscuits and cinnamon brioche rolls ( at Brunch ) are always fresh a from the oven. You can tell that most items are made on the premises including the interesting salad dressings. Try the mini lobster rolls at lunch ! No fake seafood."

  • "I travel to Philadelphia about once a month on business and usually end up having dinner at Devon every other month or so. I can't remember ever having a bad meal and usually enjoy a nice bottle of wine as well. Unfortunately on this particular visit the service was not up to the standard that I am used to from Devon or would expect from a restaurant of its caliber. The waiter spoke so softly he could hardly be heard. He apparently was not familiar with the etiquette of serving wine by proceeding the pour out for the table without first offering a taste and then he forgot to bring a steak knife for a couple of people at the table that ordered steak. All relatively minor issues, but not what I have come to expect from Devon."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Philadelphia has a huge selection of excellent restaurants........ We have had a better food experience in the past, not this time !! We believe that the difference was that in the past we primarily ordered raw/cold seafood (hard to ruin!) and this time we ordered hot/cooked foods !?!"

  • "Waiter was friendly but clueless. He kept asking my friend if she wanted her dinner side dishes as an apetizer as she did not order one. I asked for a glass of wine, after 20 minutes I asked again. He said he thought I wanted it to come with my dinner. My other friend waited 30 minutes for his drink, he said there was a long line at the bar. Someone asked for vodka on the rocks and they got a martini. Another person did not get their dinner until 10 minutes after everyone else. I could go on but I think you get the picture. Food was worth the price but not the service."

  • "I love Devon Seafood but this visit their were Gnats everywhere while I was eating. I just could not take it. I had Gnats flying all around my food closely. That will be the last time I eat there unfortunately, mainly because my food had way toooo much cheese. I had a shrimp chipotle dish and I felt like I had a cheese dish with a little shrimp chunks. For some reason I thought my meal would have been served clean with whole shrimp not shrimp chunks hidden in layers and layers of fancy cheese."

  • "My husband and I always enjoy dining here. Food and service both great. You can walk around Rittenhouse Square before or after dining. Just a nice evening."
