    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!

    It was awesome! My cousin which was her birthday and my ideal of writing on my special request to have the waiters/waitress as they walk by to say Happy Birthday Denise worked perfectly!! The food was fast and delicious and our waiter & waitress was awesome. We really loved it & my cousin said that this was such a wonderful birthday that she will never forget.

    My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner. We had great service and our meal was on-point!! The goat cheese bruschetta was a great appetizer, we also got the scallops and ahi entrees. They even provided us complimentary champagn during our dessert for our celebration. We would highly recommend this restaurant!!

    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.

    After doing extensive research, we chose this restaurant for my wife's birthday. The experience matched my research.... Mike our waiter was extremely attentive and all about US! The lobster bisque lived up to its reputation and the char crusted ahi tuna was a mouth watering taste I've never experienced before. I tasted my son's linguine and clam dinner.....very very fresh! Valet parking was value added. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone reading this review.

    From the street and parallel to Rittenhouse Square, the grill appears casual, a noisey open to tables on the sidewalk bar scene; as you are guided to your table in the lovely quiet vaulted cream color tiled ceiling room trimmed in dark wood with perfect lighting, white tablecloth dinning room. The servers are knowledgeable, courteous and throughout our visit. A manager, someone from the kitchen area, stopped by to admire the delicious grilled artichokes accompanying 2 of the entrees! The biscuits and amuse bosh were perfect as was the Cookie Box dessert! We look forward to a return visit!

    Since I only had one night in Philly, I wanted to go somewhere with great seafood. The internet pointed me to Devon and I am sure happy it did- everything was spectacular! I thoroughly enjoyed my grilled salmon and highly recommend the lobster mac and cheese. I would most certainly go back the next time I'm in the area!

    With expectations that Devon would be in the same league as Ocean Prime, I was surprised to find that this was part of the Houlihan's chain. The service was adequate but the food mediocre. My heirloom salad was passable despite the ice cream dressing but the tuna was weary and overcooked at the edges due to being under the heat lamp too long. The lamp had also destroyed the vegetables and congealed the dressing. Overall substandard and way overpriced

    This was the second time I've been to this restaurant for lunch. I like that when half the party arrives, they can be seated. We were a party of 6 and were seated in the back in a "private" area that sat only 6, thus we were shielded from surrounding chatter and at the end of the meal we weren't made to feel like we had to leave. The food was very good. I like their lobster bisque, the way the bowl comes with pieces of lobster meat in the center and then the bisque is poured over the meat. It could have been a bit hotter heat-wise. I ordered broiled trout again and it was delicious. The asparagus was good. The butternut risotto didn't have enough butternut taste for me. Because we were all full, no one had dessert.

    My friend and I ordered one of the lunch specials for $18.50. I had a bowl of chowder soup which was delicious. I was pretty full after the soup. Then I had the pretzel crusted trout which came with roasted potatoes and string beans. It as a large portion. I didn't think I could finish it, but it was so good that I finished the whole thing. This meal kept me full for the entire day that I didn't even eat dinner. My friend ordered the same meal and we both loved it. We sat overlooking Rittenhouse Square. We will definitely go back.

    The menu offered a great selection of seafood and everything we ordered was extremely fresh. The apps were amazing including the killer shrimp cocktail. The restaurant offered an extensive wine list and being Sunday we enjoyed ours at half price . Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the service was timely. Restrooms were a wreck but we will chalk it up to being restaurant week and all the outdoor diners.
