    Had a not so nice dinner experience. The food was good but the pace was ridiculous. We barely sat down and the menus were there and the waitress came back twice to take the order before we read it. Then the entrees came before we finished the appetizers and they whipped the plates off immediately when you finished so the slow eaters were pressured to eat fast. The clincher came when we split the check. It was a 50/50 split and they got the total wrong. Credit cards were taken and signed and we were walking out when they ran up and took the cards back and charged us more so we had to redo the whole check. When we got home the posted amount was also wrong. It was a mess. A classy place would admit, and bite "their" mistake.

    My husband and I visited Philadelphia for our daughter's college parents weekend with many restaurant recommendations from friends. We lucked into a table at Devon Seafood Grill. Based on a superb experience, we look forward to returning on our next trip. Welcoming, knowlegable, and professional, Michael was the best waiter we've ever had in any city. It was difficult to choose from an abundance of seafood options (and we are seafood snobs and health nuts), but all 3 of us enjoyed our selections very much from appetizers to entrees to dessert. White table cloth experience with beautiful lighting in this restaurant. Loved it.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. He happens to be a seafood enthusiast and loved every minute of our dinner. The decor and overall atmosphere was great. It can be a little loud, but I still felt like we had our privacy. A great surprise when making the reservation was the coupon for $20 off the entire meal. The service was amazing and our waiter was very attentive. The portions are larger than I expected. Overall, I would definitely return.

    My husband and I took our college age son and his roommate. Great location and vibe, beautiful interior and overall an enjoyable evening. We had the recommended crab cakes for an appetizer which were nice tasting and without filler and the calamari which was a disappointment (overly fried batter with not much actual calamari). The tuna steak was delicious!!, the tuna tartar starter was a little spicy and the pecan crusted trout didn't have much flavor. The desserts were delicious--creme brulee and especially the strawberry ice cream. Our waiter couldn't have been better although some of the food deliverers just seemed to quickly set the food down turn their backs and leave. Would still recommend as a nice place for solid meal.

    When we checked into our hotel we learned that our bellman's mom lived in New Orleans so we thought he might know something about good seafood. He did. He told us that Devon was always good and not overly expensive. We made a reservation for two on OpenTable, increased it to three and ended up with six. the restaurant was able to accomodate us with no problem and all six of us thought the place was outstanding.

    The last visit to Devon Seafood Grill was for dinner. It was fantastic. We have been there for Breakfast (A+), Lunch (A+), Dinner (A+) and just a sidewalk snack. I can't say enough good. The bad part is.....because we have had such good....everything there, we don't get to experience other establishments in the city, because we can lose going to Devon!

    In our party of four three of us enjoyed the seafood grill. The lobster bisque and the raw oysters were very good. The desserts were wonderful and plentiful. The venue was beautiful with all of the tile work and almost looked like an old indoor pool or bath. The wine list was extensive and we chose a nice bottle of Chardonnay.

    This is the second time I've been back to Devon in the past two month. Both times the food was really bad, fish was overcooked and over seasoned. The waitress was told it was my son's birthday and when I asked her to see the desert menu, she forgot to bring it to us and finally made a selection herself, bringing carrot cake which my son doesn't like!

    The seafood was delicious, although some items of my entree arrived on the cold side. Service was great until a large party arrived and we were forgotten. We could have left 30-45 mins earlier if our server was more attentive. Atmosphere feels a bit stuffy and for an older crowd.

    I treated Mom for her 90th birthday celebration. The service was great from the hostess who took great care and made sure Mom was seated while I parked the car (no valet for lunch) to Trey, our server who was attentive, but not overbearing. I really enjoy when I eat out & the food is prepared well, is beautiful and tastes good. From the crab roll appetizers & sesame seed infused seaweed, to the fillet trout, no filler lump crab cakes, to the melt in your mouth carrot cake (so full I ate at home) & Mom's key lime pie with creative & tasty mango sherbet and pineapple relish......my palette was very satisfied. They even remembered Mom's birthday and put a candle on her key lime pie! Very satisfied with Devon's and will be back again to dine!

    Over the past year I was here a few times and the fish tasted like it had been frozen or out too long. I suspected 2x that I was given fish that wasn't what I ordered. I.e.: ordered opah and got something else and when I asked was told that it was definitely opah. This time I had swordfish that seemed very fresh-it was very good. I was ready to write off Devon, but now I'll go back again.
