  • "And great service too! Never disappointed at Devon. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "From Starters to Entree's, it's all good and very consistent quality. Lots of seafood choices, attentive service level, never rushed yet never looking for a waiter either. "

  • "I have just 2 words for Devon's Seafood Grill, consistently excellent!!!"
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Great wait staff, knowledgeable, friendly, attentive without being pushy. Food was OK, has been better. Very pricey for what it was. Unfortunately, the shrimp cocktail, which should be a standout at a seafood restaurant was small and disappointing. Raw oysters were hit or miss. The stand out food item here is still the biscuit. Again, great service, but we expect better quality food for the price. Would go back for drinks & apps or dessert, but not for a full dinner. "

  • "My husband, daughter and I went to Devon on April 15, 2014 to celebrate my birthday. We have been here several times and the food is always amazing. Never any complaints - always consistant. My daughter especially loves the Lobster Mac and Cheese. If you are in Phillly -and love seafood - this is definitely a restaurant you need to visit. I cannot wait to go back. "

  • "Salmon salad was excellent and our server was spot on!"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Food took over 30 minutes to come out. The manager did comp our entrees, and while greatly appreciated, it was still not a very fun experience. I've been to Devon many times before and never waited that long. There was clearly a delay in the kitchen or a problem since tables around us were getting their food - many who arrived after us. Long story short, we were disappointed with our meal but appreciated the comped entrees."

  • "This was our first time at Devon Grill. Service was good. Food was good, but very overpriced for what it was. Very noisy atmosphere. Seems like noise level was higher depending on where you're sitting. We went for a special occasion, noted it clearly on the reservation, but it was never acknowledged. The restaurant atmosphere was much more casual than the price. Was trendy, much like the neighborhood and surrounding restaurants. Nice, spacious bar. People were also eating at bar. Glad I tried it though."

  • "My husband and I both had delicious fish. I had the risotto with asparagus and the lobster roll appetizer was a delight. Topped off with decaf cappuccino . Lovely evening."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food was good and fresh. The lobster bisque was outstanding. The lobster mac & cheese was very disappointing -- limited to a very few small "threads" of lobster, about the size of a pinhead -- in fact, you couldn't even taste the lobster. The specialty drinks were great but the standard cocktails were inconsistent. I ate here twice over a period of two weeks and the experience was similar both visits."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Great vibe, great food---when you can get it. So yes, we did dine on a Sunday evening, but the scene was busy and active, with birthday party celebrated in one area of the restaurants and all sorts of diners, young and old out for a Spring dinner. The waitress, who was friendly and eager to please, took our orders and came back out with an "oh, I'm sorry, we're out of ____fill in the blank here__", not once, not twice, but three times! (oyster, entree and dessert offering). Need to improve communication betw kitchen and staff, clearly. Otherwise great execution and attractive seafood cuisine."

  • "On our visit we craved a gluten friendly seafood restaurant- high reviews for Devon's and they didn't disappoint ! We had a table with street view and the food was beyond our expectations - service was good but my only compliant Is they disappeared and left us dry - literally water glasses empty :( - only reason I didn't give them a perfect score"

  • "The reviews I'd read were great and my hotel recommended it, so I tried this restaurant. The 'greeter' hardly offered a greeting but simply barked at my party and I to give her a few minutes. She was completely overwhelmed by the lunch rush and her stress was pretty obvious to all of us. The waiter got my order wrong and then forgot about my table entirely. Dessert was really underwhelming; I would have expected more from a place that everyone raved so much about."

  • "Devon has one of the best bars in the city. It’s right off of Rittenhouse Square which is perfect for people watching. Greg is the BEST bartender and he’s always friendly and warm! He makes a delicious cocktail too. The chipotle grilled shrimp, tuna tartare and goat cheese bruschetta are my favorite appetizers on the menu. Looking forward to the warmer weather and sitting outside for dinner."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "We enjoy Devon and come here often. Just this past Sunday we were there for brunch and everything was perfect. As always the Lobster bisque is creamy with pieces of lobster, almost a meal in itself. The eggs Benedict were very good with lightly poached eggs and perfectly done potatoes. Lobster roll and flatbreads were excellent. The most difficult thing at Devon is choosing from all of the wonderful offerings. Our wait person Ariel was the best. Looking forward to our next time."

  • "We were searching online for a good restaurant . We were meeting our friends from New Jersey, and we drove in from Pittsburgh. What a wonderful experience! Sam, our waiter, was a gem. The food was absolutely wonderful. Our party of 7 had a great time. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Calamaris were very dry, sea bass was undercooked, New England clam chowder was so thin and not-tasteful at all, the waiter was not cleaning the table even though it was not busy in the restaurant. But last time we went there, we had a great experience: the waitress was very professional and the food was exceptionally perfect"

  • "Great seafood and interesting selection of entrees."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We enjoyed bouillabaisse and lobster cobb salad. White tablecloths and white napkins gave a formal appearance. Service was excellent. But, the restaurant was extremely loud. Lots of people, low walls, and tiled ceiling contributed to the noise level, making conversation difficult."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I think I made a mistake when making the reservation and put in a date one week later than I actually wanted. The hostess managed to accommodate our party of 6 on a busy Saturday night and made no mention of my error. Our server was wonderfully attentive and most of the food was delicious. The crab cake was delicious and the scallops cooked perfectly. The wines were also quite affordable. My shrimp was over cooked and the calamari was a bit chewy so I left off the last star for that. I loved that the kids menu had food other than your standard chicken fingers and spaghetti since my toddler actually likes salmon and salad (she ate every bite). I would definitely eat here again."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Really loved this restaurant. We had great service from our waitress Carol. Disappointed in the biscuits - they were cold, dry and did not have much flavor. For dinner, I had the scallops with butternut squash risotto and my husband had the seafood mixed grill. Both of the entrees were delicious. The only thing I did not like were the brussel sprouts - they were hard, overcooked and flavorless. Others ordered the crabcakes which were were to die for! Best crab cakes ever - pure lump crab. For drinks I had the strawberry mint mojito. It was much sweeter than your typical mojito and had very little mint flavor. Would not get it again. Overall a great experience and would definitely go back and avoid the items that we did not like."

  • "The seafood here is incredible, everything is shipped in fresh daily and you can absolutely tell because the quality of their seafood is incredible. Nice and quiet, great wine list, romantic ambiance, perfect pricing. One of the few restaurants in the city that's not over priced, even though the food and service feel like they are worth more than you pay. Definitely great for special occasions."

  • "The tuna was excellent. Crab cakes were very good but the lobster mac and cheese was dry."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Went to Devon not knowing exactly what to expect and ended up have an amazing evening! Great choice for any special occasion. The food was exceptional and the desert (carrot cake was delicious). One con is the location, especially not being from the area and not knowing where the parking garages were located. Over all a great experience!"

  • "The seafood selection for which I chose to dine could be diversified. While the grilled seafood was fine, it could do with so e octopus and squid perhaps even sardines. The shrimp and crab cakes were good. The dinner menu of seafood bouillabaisse was disappointing. The stock had a bitter taste possibly because of chunks of uncooked onions. Try grilling with some Korean sauces or with olive oil and lemon juice and some cilantro. The possibilities are limitless"

  • "I came to Devon expecting to do a normal lunch and ended up having a two-hour feast of delicious seafood. My group ordered three appetizers and three entrees. The flavors were perfectly blended in every dish. I already can't wait to return!"
