Diner Reviews
  • "Special dinner! I had the Caesar salad which was awesome; my husband had the Lobster Bisque (which he told me was heavenly). I had the seared scallops; my husband had the swordfish. Both meals were wonderful - the scallops melted in my mouth. We ordered a Napa Valley Reisling wine with dinner which was excellent. The server seemed to be overwhelmed with all of the sidewalk tables, but we did receive our food and it was hot and delicious. We weren't in a hurry because we were facing Rittenhouse Square on a lovely summer evening - it was perfect."

  • "Arrived early for my reservation and was seated promptly. Server staff watch us be seated about 15 min before someone came over. Had to ask for a server to come to our table. Have been to Devon's several times before sadly the most disappointing visit"

  • "Always saw a crowd when passing by so decided to see what the draw was all about; happy we did! The ahi tuna melted in my mouth. Great variety of dishes to select and have to go back to try the other creations that caught our eye. Started the meal off right with the lump crab cakes. Hearty but light and two delicious dipping sauces to accompany them. The portion of the salmon panzanella was very generous, and of course, delicious. The flavors are clean and light and truly focus on enhancing the natural flavor of the fish. Great pricing and they reward quite generously when you sign up for emails (coupons, free apps or desserts on special dates, etc.). Didn't get a chance to try dessert but the dishes that passed by were mouthwatering."

  • "My favorite seafood place in town. Always get the crab cake cause it actually contains crab..not filler. Biscuits are the best I ever had. Manager, JOHN down to earth, personable, friendly beyond words & rather have lunch with him than who I am with!!! Always good food."

  • "The seafood at this restaurant was very good and our table at the open restaurant front allowed us to overlook Rittenhouse Square and people watch. The Power lunch of that phenomenal tomato and mozzarella like cheese accompanied with a pesto like ice cream ball was enough to come back for alone. The jumbo lump crab melt and fries were more than enough to complete the power lunch duo; very filling and delicious too."

  • "We went with friends for lunch and were not disappointed. The menu was varied and one could have a lovely fish platter with soup or salad as a starter for a reasonable price. They also offer superb salads and sandwiches. Sitting across from Rittenhouse Square with wonderful weather was also a plus. Highly recommended."

  • "excellent food (except for the dry artichoke) -- and our waiter Mike was really nice and attentive. The only problem was that the hostess initially seated us in a passageway near the bathroom and bar. I had to request to move to the main dining room, which is quiet and good for conversation. (We were a party of four.) Her decision was strange as it was 5:30 pm and the restaurant was nearly empty."

  • "Been here many times & always good. Had the "power lunch" & somewhat disappointed. Soup & small entrée $13 Lobster bisque as good as Capital Grill's ..best part of the meal. Crab melt on bread somewhat soggy & crab hardly recognizable. Bland taste..had much better lunches there...this was not "powerful" But the soup made up for it."

  • "I brought a group of 9 to Devon for dinner this week and we had a wonderful experience. We asked for a window seat and they accommodated us. The waiter was top notch and was able to handle a table of 9 with no problem and with a smile on his face. The food was excellent and everyone in the group enjoyed themselves."

  • "Our waitress was friendly, fun and knew the menu and food preparation well. The food was well prepared, tasty and delivered promptly. The wine list was disappointing and really over priced. A bottle that retails for $13 being sold for $52 is a rip off."

  • " It was nice to be able to enjoy a vegetarian meal, while my boyfriend could eat all the seafood he wanted. This was a special occasion for his birthday, so we found this great place. For both of us, we found the food to be really enjoyable, and my boyfriend said it was the best crab cake he has ever tasted. There was a lack of communication with the servers, and left us sitting at a table outside for a half hour without taking a drink or food order. When I asked the server if he was going to take our order, he replied he was not at our table, when he did indeed introduce himself to us prior. Needless to say I was very dissatisfied with the service. The only thing that made up for that was the meals that we enjoyed."

  • "I was in the mood for a whole lobster and did not want to drive to Maine. Found that Devon whole lobster on its menu. We had a 2 lb lobster - perfection with 2 sides. We also had the mussel starter with white wine saucer - very nice. Dessert was an apple tart with cinnamon ice cream - ideal. Service was great - it was a Friday night at 7 and the place was about half full."

  • "I was recommended to go here for the seafood and overall the food was good but very pricey..I was told the biscuits were a must have and was very disappointed that we were offered none!! Also they sat us in a table between the waiter stations which was a little annoying since reservations were made..definitely not worth the price paid."

  • "I had an amazing dining experience at Devon's. I was celebrating a birthday and wanted to try something different. I love seafood and everything was simply amazing from the service to the atmosphere. My first experience was great! I would definitely dine here again! Thanx for the great experience"

  • "I had the salmon and it was very good, but my bother had the highest priced steak. He said it was top quality beef, but they simply didn't have the right broilers for steak. Probably not unusual for a place known for fish, but disappointing."

  • "I was running a bit late to the Kimmel Center and I was sure if there was time for a nice, quick meal. It turns out there was, and the Devon Seafood grill was perfect. The swordfish was like white steak. My server, Angel was - well Angelic. My only regret is I had to skip dessert to see the Pixar concert."

  • "When you go here ask for Dante! He was funny, personable, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was wonderful!! From the shrimp Chipotle Grilled Shrimp to the encrusted trout and the grilled sword! The risotto was wonderful, though I didn't think the artichoke was worth the effort but, if you're a real artichoke fan....maybe? This was our first visit to Devon and we look forward to munching our way through this menu! We were way too stuffed for dessert!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The food was great (as always), but my entree was missing a side. The most disappointing thing about this visit was the service. Our server looked like he was high - eyes were glassy and half shut the whole night, forgot everything, very fidgety. He couldn't explain how the dishes were prepared, forgot our appetizer and barely checked on our table. He kept refilling our wine glasses when they were already full. It was distracting and he was very unprofessional. I won't be going back for a while."

  • "I had the rainbow trout and my husband had grilled scallops. The food was good, portions were modest. Biscuits were limited and the service was okay. My husband enjoyed his cocktail This restaurant uses premium Liquors as opposed to well in their cocktails - this makes a difference. Had key lime pie for dessert - crust was a bit hard on hindsight I recommend a different dessert."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Love the location...love the ambience. I'm just not convinced that the food is as good. I ordered rainbow trout and about 10 minutes later the served returned to tell me that they we all out. One of my friends ordered the lobster mac and cheese. Lobster mac and cheese seems to have become a staple at Philadelphia restaurants. That said, Devon's mac was my least favorite. Not sure that I'd give this place a second chance."

  • "Loved the food but especially loved the table right in front of the large open windows--almost on the sidewalk. Great for people viewing on Rittenhouse Square. Had a great and fun waiter--Kyle. Highly recommend!"

  • "Good location next to Rittenhouse Square but, especially for the high prices, it is way overrated. I had the mixed seafood grill - most of the food was flavorless (salmon, shrimp, and the asparagus that just tasted like char/grill). Scallops weren't bad. Crabcakes were decent. The waiter didn't really know what he was talking about and seemed to be just trying to "play the part" of a waiter at a nice restaurant. He came across as arrogant though, was fairly unhelpful, and would disappear for long stretches. I wanted to like Devon, and was excited to go (it was reserved well in advance as our last dinner on a long weekend trip), but I would not recommend it. There were much better meals to be had in Philadelphia, and for much less money."

  • "We have been to Devon several times, all very good experiences. This time, not so much. Our waiter was young and way too familiar with my family, whom he did not know. He gave my husband the very very bottom of a bottle of wine and when my husband refused it, the waiter (yes I know his name) looked at him very rudely. At the end of the meal, this waiter tossed my dad the check- you do the math- 6 people, all had drinks, all had appetizers, entrees', 3 desserts, 5 coffees ==$$$$$$$$$$$. This time, not worth it. I'll think twice."
