  • "When you go here ask for Dante! He was funny, personable, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was wonderful!! From the shrimp Chipotle Grilled Shrimp to the encrusted trout and the grilled sword! The risotto was wonderful, though I didn't think the artichoke was worth the effort but, if you're a real artichoke fan....maybe? This was our first visit to Devon and we look forward to munching our way through this menu! We were way too stuffed for dessert!"

  • "The food was great (as always), but my entree was missing a side. The most disappointing thing about this visit was the service. Our server looked like he was high - eyes were glassy and half shut the whole night, forgot everything, very fidgety. He couldn't explain how the dishes were prepared, forgot our appetizer and barely checked on our table. He kept refilling our wine glasses when they were already full. It was distracting and he was very unprofessional. I won't be going back for a while."

  • "I had the rainbow trout and my husband had grilled scallops. The food was good, portions were modest. Biscuits were limited and the service was okay. My husband enjoyed his cocktail This restaurant uses premium Liquors as opposed to well in their cocktails - this makes a difference. Had key lime pie for dessert - crust was a bit hard on hindsight I recommend a different dessert."

  • "Love the location...love the ambience. I'm just not convinced that the food is as good. I ordered rainbow trout and about 10 minutes later the served returned to tell me that they we all out. One of my friends ordered the lobster mac and cheese. Lobster mac and cheese seems to have become a staple at Philadelphia restaurants. That said, Devon's mac was my least favorite. Not sure that I'd give this place a second chance."

  • "Loved the food but especially loved the table right in front of the large open windows--almost on the sidewalk. Great for people viewing on Rittenhouse Square. Had a great and fun waiter--Kyle. Highly recommend!"

  • "Good location next to Rittenhouse Square but, especially for the high prices, it is way overrated. I had the mixed seafood grill - most of the food was flavorless (salmon, shrimp, and the asparagus that just tasted like char/grill). Scallops weren't bad. Crabcakes were decent. The waiter didn't really know what he was talking about and seemed to be just trying to "play the part" of a waiter at a nice restaurant. He came across as arrogant though, was fairly unhelpful, and would disappear for long stretches. I wanted to like Devon, and was excited to go (it was reserved well in advance as our last dinner on a long weekend trip), but I would not recommend it. There were much better meals to be had in Philadelphia, and for much less money."

  • "We have been to Devon several times, all very good experiences. This time, not so much. Our waiter was young and way too familiar with my family, whom he did not know. He gave my husband the very very bottom of a bottle of wine and when my husband refused it, the waiter (yes I know his name) looked at him very rudely. At the end of the meal, this waiter tossed my dad the check- you do the math- 6 people, all had drinks, all had appetizers, entrees', 3 desserts, 5 coffees ==$$$$$$$$$$$. This time, not worth it. I'll think twice."

  • "Prior dining experiences at Devon have been very good…on Saturday night's dinner, the evening started badly with two glasses of stale champagne. I returned the first glass but drank the second despite the fact that this champagne had very few bubbles. Appetizers, Vietnamese Spring Rolls and Chipolte Grilled Shrimp were ok but not that savory. Entrees, the seared Ahi Tuna proved to be perfectly seared and a sizable portion; the crab cakes were not warmed through but crab chunks were big and unencumbered by filler; however, they lacked the flavor that keeps me eating a really tasty crab cake. Presentation--a glob of mashed potatoes next to my also-white crab cakes and then asparagus? Switch the vegetables to give me a good-looking entree!"

  • "Overall, my experience was enjoyable however I was quite upset when I discovered that the dish I had eagerly anticipated to order (chipotle grilled shrimp enchildas) was taken off the menu. It is still on the website menu today. The entree has a staple at the Devon Grill for years and I was extremely disppointed. Had I know it would not have been on the menu, I probably would not have recommended that we make the trip to come!!!"

  • "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."

  • "Havent been to Devon in almost a year, not due to any protest just always trying new and different. Devon was as good as I remember. We had a great location near the open doors. Server was friendly and very good. We only had apps and drinks but everything was wonderful."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Everything is fresh. Unusual types of fish. Simple and good. Sit by window and look at Rittenhouse Square"
    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."

  • "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."
