    Devon was our choice for Restaurant week this year. We loved the specialty cocktails, particularly the Mojito. We ordered lobster bisque which was the best EVER, crab cakes, and 2 desserts, creme brûlée and chocolate mousse cake. Everything was outstanding except the mousse cake which was a little dry. Our waitress was wonderfully attentive and very sweet. In all it was an outstanding meal.

    Restaurant Week fails to deliver the true courtesy & ambiance that is desired. My date & I had to take an early reservation (5:30pm) & we were one on the few tables there for the first 40 minutes or so when it started to fill up for dinner time. From the very start though, we felt the anticipated rush from the server & the food runners. We were not treated with decent regard until we ordered a bottle of wine, making me feel like the courtesy was extended for the higher check we would receive. Our entrees were also brought out before we even finished our bisque & we had to ask for things like ground pepper, which should have been offered with our meal. As always, the food was delicious, but the experience left something to be desired.

    Devon's never disappoints! I've been dining here for the last 7 years and the food and service are always the same-amazing! I had the lobster bisque which had generous pieces of tender lobster, and for the main course, maple glazed salmon. It was among the freshest, and tastiest salmon I've had! I've come here with many different friends and the general consensus is the same-exceedingly delicious food with great service! I can't wait to dine there again!

    This was a great spot for a dinner meeting with a client. We sat inside but near the outdoor seating and was perfectly placed to view the park outside. Service and Food was very good to excellent. Perfect noise level for any kind of lunch or dinner meeting, not too quiet and not too loud. Great choice!!

    My friend & I came to Devon's for lunch during Restaurant Week. Everything was amazing from the wine to the food and the service. We ate at the perfect time because everyone was clearing out so we had the restaurant to ourselves. The ambience is beautiful and it was quiet. I suggest the lobster bisque, the salmon, and the creme brûlée.

    Devon is a nice place to have lunch with friends. Two of the 3 of us enjoyed our fish dishes very much. The lobster salad was a disappointment and I would not recommend it. We sat in an open area facing Rittenhouse Square which would have been very nice except for the traffic on 18th St - loud trucks and motorcycles. Our server was friendly, attentive, and courteous.

    My Wife and I had a great seating location until a server (not our server) asked if we would mind moving. We had our own private special occasion going on but being polite people we are we moved from our initial seating location to allow the other guest to be accommodated. The guest never thanked us or acknowledge us for making this change. I would recommend that the staff not ask another guest to move their seats once they have be seated. It placed us in an awkward situation and the fact that the guest weren't courteous enough to thank us started our dinner off wrong. People remember the bad before the good. Our server was awesome! We met a nice couple who told us next time to ask for Michelle!

    Took my parents and son to celebrate Grandparents Day. It happened to be Restaurant Week. Lobster bisque and salmon were amazing. Shrimp and grits very yummy but a bit salty. Didn't realize they had a kid's menu with a lobster roll on it. Still love this place

  • Not The Grand Central Oyster Bar
    TessaVIP
    Dined on 9/4/2014
    Devon, unsuccessfully tries to mimic Grand Central Oyster Bar. Replicating the decor, albeit in different tones, is where it stops. Our Ahi Tuna steaks were poorly cut and over cooked. My husband's "steak" varied in thickness and was inedible. Complimented by poor service, one wonders why the "Wine Spectator" put this venue on their recent list. The waiter served lukewarm Bernardus Chardonnay; his presentation was not outdone by his negligent service. We had to pour our wine as he NEVER came back to the table until we obviously stopped trying to eat this display of mush. The chefs have much to learn about preparing seared tuna; this starts at the slicing table. Remedial training required for wait and kitchen staff.

    Great food, great drinks. Lots of great choices of wild caught, and no so typical types of fish (in addition to Tuna, salmon etc). Energetic, but no so loud that you couldn't have a conversation. We declined dessert, as we were too full- but the server knowing it was my mother-in-laws birthday brought a dessert with a candle anyway- nice touch!

    The food was fine, but the service was quite poor, especially for the price of the meal. The service was not on par with the rest of the food and setting and detracted significantly from the overall dining experience. I would not go back. Perhaps they treat OpenTable customers as less desirable and essentially ignore them.

    The restaurant experience at Devon was exceptional - as it always is. The food is superb. I recommend their famous crabcakes. There are also options for those who are allergic to seafood. Also, consideration is given to those who prefer gluten and/or diary free food. The service was excellent. Waiters, host, desk personnel are all professional and friendly - a great combination!

    It was something different to try. I kind of felt like i was at red lobster or something. They didnt really have any discounts unless you drank at the bar. I was expecting more and they didnt even have good bread. The biscuits were alright but the butter goes to waste because they dont have good food.
