    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.

    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.

    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.

    The warped table wobbled, turned, and shook. They were out of most of the appetizers. The portions were small. The food was flavorless. The service was fine. Reminded me of a dirty overpriced Red Lobster.

    Devon's never disappoints! I've been dining here for the last 7 years and the food and service are always the same-amazing! I had the lobster bisque which had generous pieces of tender lobster, and for the main course, maple glazed salmon. It was among the freshest, and tastiest salmon I've had! I've come here with many different friends and the general consensus is the same-exceedingly delicious food with great service! I can't wait to dine there again!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    I was completely shocked since Devon's is one of my favorite restaurant spots in center city Philadelphia. I ordered the filet with a side of mashed potatoes and asparagus. I ordered my steak medium well, however it was prepared very well done and quite dried out. As I stated before I ordered mashed potatoes and the waitress brought out risotto I was baffled as to why. So I said mam I ordered mashed potatoes not risotto. The waitress informed me there was no more mashed potatoes so that what they had. My question was why didn't they give me a option for a different side the waitress then offered me roasted potatoes which just like the steak came out dry and very well done. My weight time for each portion was well over 35-40 mins.

    My friend & I came to Devon's for lunch during Restaurant Week. Everything was amazing from the wine to the food and the service. We ate at the perfect time because everyone was clearing out so we had the restaurant to ourselves. The ambience is beautiful and it was quiet. I suggest the lobster bisque, the salmon, and the creme brûlée.

    Devon is a nice place to have lunch with friends. Two of the 3 of us enjoyed our fish dishes very much. The lobster salad was a disappointment and I would not recommend it. We sat in an open area facing Rittenhouse Square which would have been very nice except for the traffic on 18th St - loud trucks and motorcycles. Our server was friendly, attentive, and courteous.

    My Wife and I had a great seating location until a server (not our server) asked if we would mind moving. We had our own private special occasion going on but being polite people we are we moved from our initial seating location to allow the other guest to be accommodated. The guest never thanked us or acknowledge us for making this change. I would recommend that the staff not ask another guest to move their seats once they have be seated. It placed us in an awkward situation and the fact that the guest weren't courteous enough to thank us started our dinner off wrong. People remember the bad before the good. Our server was awesome! We met a nice couple who told us next time to ask for Michelle!
