    Overall, we were disappointed. As the restaurant specializes in seafood we expected outstanding or very good quality of seafood. Each of us ordered a different fresh fish of the day selection. Afterwards we all agreed that while it was OK, the preparation and quality was below our expectations.

    very poor waiter who rushed us with our food delivery---bringing entree while we were still eating appetizer---then constantly interrupted us asking things like pepper?, is everything alright? while we were engaged in serious conversation.................then I used a gift certificate to pay for part of the meal and he loudly announced how much he had sub tracted from the bill to reflect the gift certificate rather thasn just deliveing the check with the credit shown. I am regular customer but this was a very poor waiter who needs much better training.

    Has always been one of our favorite restaurants. Food has always been fantastic, whether it's the seafood, steaks or pasta. Also one of the best places to go if you don't have a reservation -- the actual wait is only a fraction of what they tell you. If they say 45 minutes, you'll probably be seated in about 25.

    More than anything, consistency, is what I like best about a restaurant. Consistenly good or consistently mediocre, just be the same, be who and what you are. Devon is like bedrock in terms of consistency, and the consistency is GREAT. This is a place where if we want to hang out with our foodie couple friends, the 4 of us go and have a great time. Sometimes we notice the restaurant and sometimes we have such a great time the restaurant is simply where we were. Devon is great enough to stand up to both experiences!! If you want great food, great service and great prices, go. I frequently have business visitors from out of town and outside the US, Devon is the place I go to impress them. In summation, for business or leisure, Devon is it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 5/6/2008
    We've been to Devon many times. Typically we have an exceptional experience. SO much so that whenever we have people in from out of town it is at the top of our list of places to possibly go for dinner. Our experience Tuesday was very disappointing and downright embarassing given our high praise prior to dinner to our friends and colleagues. The service was just terrible. Our server was impossible to find. Left the table before completely taking our order. One of the entrees was horrific. She took it back, but my wife didn't receive her replacement entree until everyone else at the table was completely done. Wine glasses sat empty.We mentioned our disappointment to the manager. His response was, "What would you like me to do about it?"

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/30/2008
    I was looking forward to my dining experience at Devon's since my friends had raved about it. We were seated pretty quickly. When our waitress finally came over, she took drink orders, returned after a long while then we waited for a long period of time for her to return again. Throughout the evening, we were constantly asking someone to find her. Everyone we asked said they would send her to our table -- to no avail. I finally requested the manager; he came over after a long while and said he would send over our waitress. Again, she did not appear immediately, when she finally arrived she had an attitude. This is not the type of service I expect when I go to a restaurant so I will not return to Devon's nor will I recommend it.

    The food was very good and the setting was nice. It was very loud the whole time so that was kind of annoying. I went for an anniversary dinner so it was tough to keep a conversation without yelling across the table. The wait staff were very good and friendly. It took a long time for the food to come out, but everything tasted good so that would make up for it. Overall I enjoyed the restaurant, but it is slightly out of price range for me to come back for a casual dinner. I would recommend it to anyone looking for good seafood.

    We have always had an enjoyable meal at the Devon. The noise level and constant passing of staff including hostess's monitoring the tables can be, at times, quite distracting to your dining experience. Would like to see the dessert menu updated, we have been enjoying the food at the Devon for about 8 years and don't believe it has changed in all that time.

    I made reservations in celebration of my friends' birthday. To make the day special, I contacted Devon's ahead of time to ask if they do anything for birthdays. They stated that they would put a candle in their dessert and that they would make sure that they informed our server. This was great, because I wouldn't have that awkward moment of trying to get the server's attention, without ruining the "little surprise" for my friends. Dessert came...no candle! At that point the "birthday moment" was lost. I know this is minor because overall the food and atmosphere were great.
