    Had choice of inside or outside dining. We chose to dine inside. Warm and inviting atmosphere. Dined during restaurant week. Food was excellent. I had the crab cakes. They were excellent. Filled with lump crab meat. No fillers. Lobster mac was okay. A little dry. Grilled asparagus was great. My friend had the steak and she said it was wonderful. Happy hour was just starting. I had a mojito and it was awesome. Not watered down. We had an amazing time. This was my first visit to Devon's but it won't be my last.

Chocolate cake disgusting it was cold raspberry was soooo tart but the cake taste like it was sugar free it should have been room temperature

    Dined on 9/18/2014
    I am a server. At a fine dining establishment around the corner. Off the square. My restaurant also does restaurant week and I am aware that the crowds and the demands of restaurant week alter the regular service experience ever so slightly even with restaurants trying not to let that happen. That being said, and even though I left a 25% tip for our server (for karmas sake), we went to celebrate a special event and we felt less than special. Service was sparse, forced, not genuine. Wine presentation was clumsy and uncomfortable. Soup came without a spoon. Our main course came while appetizers were still on the table. I was told it was my fault for ordering my steak medium rare. Food was acceptable. Happy 5 years to my partner and I! :-/

    The food was wonderful! The lobster bisque was delicious. We shared the crab cakes(contained no fillers) and scallops as recommended by our waiter, Kyle. These two entrees were superb. Finished the meal with coffee, strawberry short cake and creme brûlée. Food and service despite the fact that it was a busy "Restaurant Week " evening.

    Have been quite a few times in this Restaurant every time I am in Philadelphia, but this time, food has been quite a disappointment. The Food was very average and not worth a visit, given the great alternatives, Philly has to offer. It looks like very routine production and the quality was just below average. However, the service as been attentive, professional and friendly. Will not go back there and cannot recommend the food.

    We enjoyed great food, and ambiance that overshadowed the poor service of waiter. The food was very inviting. The only issue we noted the triple chocolate mouse cake was stale and dry. Portions were satisfying. Definitely would return outside of Restaurant Week for 2nd chance☆

    Great tasting menu with interesting choices. I recommend the crab cakes and lobster bisque as they are outstanding. Food is a touch salty but wash it down with your favorite cocktail. One nit- they really pack the chairs in there so it's hard to maneuver to the bathrooms and to the bar area.

    When we arrived the hostess was great and sat us right away. Our server knew when to come and when not bother us. The seafood was as good as can be expected with a view of the park I was pretty content. They do sit the tables rather close which is the usual but the woman behind me was so close we kept nudging elbows. But overall great place, great service and good food!

    This was my wife and I first visit to Devon Seafood Grill. We decided to visit during resturant week. All though it was busy the food was delicious. Someone asked was the dish worth the amount and my answer was hands down, yes. The food was well worth the visit. I look forward to my next visit to Devon's.

    This was our first to Devon. We went for lunch during restaurant week and were glad that we did. The food and service were impeccable. The only complaint I would register is that we arrived at noon on a Sunday. The place was virtually empty, yet we were seated at the very back of the restaurant, virtually alone. I asked my husband if I had a wart on my forehead or something :P It was unclear to me why we were taken to the deep recesses of the restaurant. Above that, the food and service were so good that we would return. I'll simply asked to be seated at the front of the house next time.

    As always, this restaurant does not disappoint. The filet melts in your mouth, and the service is on their game. However, maybe because it was restaurant week and things were rushed, the Cesar salad appetizer was bitter and the lettuce was rotten. Also, the mouse cake might have been from a box. But I will definitely be back, because this is my favorite restaurant, and still is!

    We love seafood so decided to try this place during restaurant week. Oysters were great! We ordered crabcakes and steak. The crabcake was good, no filler and the steak was good too. Everything was fine, no complaints it just wasn't great. The outdoor patio is nice on a nice evening but very laid-back and casual.

    Devon was our choice for Restaurant week this year. We loved the specialty cocktails, particularly the Mojito. We ordered lobster bisque which was the best EVER, crab cakes, and 2 desserts, creme brûlée and chocolate mousse cake. Everything was outstanding except the mousse cake which was a little dry. Our waitress was wonderfully attentive and very sweet. In all it was an outstanding meal.

    Restaurant Week fails to deliver the true courtesy & ambiance that is desired. My date & I had to take an early reservation (5:30pm) & we were one on the few tables there for the first 40 minutes or so when it started to fill up for dinner time. From the very start though, we felt the anticipated rush from the server & the food runners. We were not treated with decent regard until we ordered a bottle of wine, making me feel like the courtesy was extended for the higher check we would receive. Our entrees were also brought out before we even finished our bisque & we had to ask for things like ground pepper, which should have been offered with our meal. As always, the food was delicious, but the experience left something to be desired.

    Went for restaurant week, it was busy but we were seated quickly and our food arrived within a few minutes. In spite of waitress being extremely busy, she found time to stop by several times to see if we needed anything and to ask how our food was. Definitely a place worth going to. Awesome lobster bisque too!

    We went for Lunch during restaurant week. We had a table for 5 with 3 of us opting for soup and salad. After waiting for 1hour 15 minutes we still had not received our salads and had to take them to go. One of our group went with the 3 courses so asked for her dessert to be wrapped to go also. We realized once we were leaving that the waitress had not included the dessert. One of our party who stayed said she would get it. The waitress gave an attitude and said that we were lying. The food was good but the service left a bitter taste.
