Devon Seafood Grill - Philadelphia
Great as usualI have been to Devon a few times and have always had a great experience. The fresh seafood choices are fabulous, as are the fun-to-share appetizers. Love this restaurant.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent brunch-spot for Moms Day!My family and I took my mom here for Mother's Day brunch after we participated in the Komen Mother's Day Race for the Cure at the Art Museum. The service was quick and very friendly, the food was absolutely delicious, and it was comfortable yet still gave the feel to my mom that we were spoiling her a bit. This is my second time here, first time for brunch, and I would definitely make a return trip! We may be making Devon a Mother's Day tradition in my family :)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMmaximai had such a great experience at devon's for mothers day.my server and the whole experience was just great.i would come back to devon's again and dine5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Good!Went for Mother's Day Brunch, reservation was for 11:15 and we were seated right away.
Had a delicious bloody Mary and Eggs Benedict with smoked Salmon, portion was perfect and everyone else enjoyed their food too.
Andre our waiter was on point, friendly and knowledgeable!
Would go again, love the ala carte brunch for mother's day...I never do a buffet.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood not great on Mother's DayWe went for Mother's Day brunch. Had a sampling of oysters which were delicious. Had the salad with fresh grilled salmon. Asked for it med-rare, it arrived well done. It had already taken long enough, so I didn't send it back. Daughter got tuna tartare and loved it and my wife got and enjoyed the swordfish - which was important! We then ordered one slice of carrot cake to split. After a long wait, our waiter came back to tell us they were out of carrot cake and it would be ten minutes before they would have any more. So we decided to pass and asked for our bill - which took more than 10 minutes to get, ironically enough. Been here before and will go back, but was disappointed with this visit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Meal, Nice SettingMy wife and daughter had dinner overlooking Rittenhouse Square. It was a beautiful evening and the meal was outstanding. My daughter and I got the tuna (Medium Rare), and my wife got the mixed seafood grill. All were amazing. The tuna may have been the best I have ever had, and I eat it often! I would highly recommend the Devon Seafood Grill.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeat BusinessThis is the second time I have opted for this restaurant when visiting Philadelphia. The food is reliably good and the service is great. There is something for everyone on the menu whether seafood or steaks.

Always a welcoming environment.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways dependable for goodAlways dependable for good fish and good service. Very noisy when crowded but that's not unusual for popular restaurants. Looking forward to going back.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPhilly Must-HaveDevon is like an upscale Steak House, but with fresh daily seafood instead. The sides are steak-house quality...the appetizers are tantalizing & intriguing. The warm biscuits are a melt-in-your-mouth welcome to dinner, but I wanted them offered more than once.
The Wine List/Cocktail selections were extensive and innovative. Reservations are a must...and we went twice in 5 days!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDeanna was the best server!Very professional and knowledgable, while accommodating my time constraints vs the rest of my group. Food-wise- you can't go wrong with the crab cakes!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome.So delicious. Way too expensive for anything besides a really special occasion.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I came to theMy wife and I came to the Devon Seafood Grill for our anniversary. We had a fantastic time, the food was outstanding. For our appetizer we had the shrimp cocktail and the Pemaquid muscles, both were excellent. For the main course my wife had the seafood mixed grill and I had the NY Strip and lobster mac and cheese, she said the crab cakes were the best she has ever had and my strip was cooked perfectly rare and was incredible. Our server Carol could not have been better, attentive, engaging and who we will be asking for again on our next visit.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place to meet friendsPerfect place to meet friends and have a leisurely lunch or dinner. Food is fabulous (lobster rolls, lobster cobb salad to die for!)Servers don't rush you and they have great wines.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA 5 star experienceNever have we had better service and food. We took family there for the first time, all are from New York and are used to New York restaurants, and all were delighted with Devon Sea Food Grill. The one drawback is the noise level, which is due to the architecture, but the high arched ceilings and brickwork are so interesting that we didn't mind the noise.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything associated withEverything associated with the food and drinks and that service was wonderfulThe hostesses definitely need more training.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTara is a wonderful waitressTara is a wonderful waitress !

Both the service and the food were outstanding.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTook 6 adults for a specialTook 6 adults for a special dinner/meeting Friday evening and found the food and service to be excellent. We were seated at our own table in a small room, which was quiet so that we could talk. The bar area of the restaurant was energetic in terms of noise. Devon was a perfect place for our dinner/meeting. Many thanks.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough we weren't greetedAlthough we weren't greeted immediately by the hostess and didn't receive a real welcoming hello after being seated everything else was outstanding. We had an excellent server and the food was cooked perfect and enjoyable. I had the seared yellow fin tuna medium rare it melted in my mouth.

We had the Haddock and Barrimundi which both were seared to delightful preparedness. My wife and I shared the two. Our server - Tatiana was such a joy. She even returned a hug from my wife "saying, we hug in the south ( NC ) and Tatiana said "well so do we Brazilians!!! " Great time and such a good selection.
Using online reservations was such a breeze and confirmation number provided to email. We actually got seated early.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for lunch and we hadWe went for lunch and we had a wonderful time. The food was very good, the customer service was excellent and we're definately looking forward to going back.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were greeted and seatedWe were greeted and seated right away for our reservation. We were a bit worried about how noisy it would be as we went through the bar but overall it was quiet enough that we could converse. Our server was phenomenal - good knowledge of the menu, food preparation, and the wine list; and frequently checked back with us without being pushy. We liked the variety of the seafood selections from very simple, grilled fresh fish to the more elaborate dishes. This was our first time here and we will be back very soon.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food tasted amazing, andThe food tasted amazing, and was cooked to perfection. The Service was great, and the management couldn't have done a better job!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingFood was amazing! It was cooked and brought to the table very fast. Service staff was incredible. Would go again!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceWe've eaten at Devon many times. The food and service are outstanding. The fresh hot biscuits are incredible. We enjoyed the Sushi, Scallops, and Trout on our last visit. Also, the kids chicken fingers may be the best in the area!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time, a charmOur waitress Sherrill was very good, as was the food. My only 2 recommendations would be that the bussing staff be a bit less zealous when clearing the table. They wanted to remove dishes so quickly and we were not yet finished. My second recommendation would be an improvement at the front desk. I have been to Devon twice and the greetersseaters are truly not a harmonious group.
Thanks very mich for providing the table we were seeking and mostly for reading the e-mail. With that attention to customer details , we will surely be returning
Gloria Cannella4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI have never been disappointedI have never been disappointed with any item that I have ordered. Had the shrimp enchiladas. Excellent!!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service and location!My son (who we were visiting) found your restaurant via OpenTable during our recent visit to Philly. We loved it so much, we went back a few days later and ate outside with a view of the park. The food is amazing! With 5 of us and 2 visits, we had quite a few things on the menu....we sampled 4-5 different appetizers, but the few that really stood out were the lobster rolls (YUM), duck flatbread, crab cakes and mussels. The food was terrific, but what really made the restaurant was the excellent service. This restaurant is doing everything RIGHT!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waitress was funny, sheOur waitress was funny, she loved everything on the menu. Perfect representation for their food!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDevon my go to placeAs always never disappointed. Good value, fresh food.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat selection of seafoodGreat selection of seafood dishes, very nice cocktails. Great service from our server, Andre.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful seafood experienceIf you are a lover of seafood then Devon Seafood Grill will fit the bill. I really liked the fresh tasting fish and shrimp dishes. My wife got the lobster roll starter which came with fries, that could have been a meal in itself. Before I go on let me say that there was a table of diners near us that pump up the noise level thanks to ONE very loud woman. But before she came the ambiance was wonderful. We had the seafood sampler and it was a sample in sheer delights. I don't want to go on and on but this restaurant has a life long fan. I want to give a very special shout out to our server who was very attentive and informative and she added to the overall delight of our evening.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food,service,ambianceGreat food,service,ambiance and is now one of our favorite restaurants in Philadelphia!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood experienceWe were a group of 5 and we had a good experience. The particular booth we were given next to the bar was a little dark -- we had to use the glow of our cell phones to see the menu -- but that didn't appear to be indicative of the lighting in the entire place. The architecture is cool and the service was quite good. The food was excellent (I highly recommend the lobster bisque) but was perhaps a little on the pricey side. Hard to beat truly fresh seafood brought in from all over the world.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways DeliciousFood is always consistent and delicious. Our server Britta was delightful. Because it was our anniversary she gave us a box of cookies to take home. My seafood grill was very good and presented nicely with a side of apple and celery slaw and grilled asparagus. My husband enjoyed the calamari appetizer and his mahi-mahi entre .4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!Was in philly the other night and was looking for something a little different. Devon hit the mark! Highly recommend, food was fantastic, great for a group dinner or something with someone special.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMYou really can't go wrongYou really can't go wrong by dining at Devon! Always a good choice. Service was great with a tag team approach.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. AppetizerExcellent food. Appetizer was outstanding. Two crab cakes served with two delicious dipping sauces. I had seared scallops as an entre and my husband had the seared tuna. Very pleasant and helpful server. Would definitely go back. Probably the best crab cakes I ever had. All lump meat with little If any filling.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious SeafoodMy husband & I went to Devon for my birthday & had a wonderful time. Everything was great - the food, the service & the atmosphere. This is one of my favorite seafood restaurants. Our fish was moist, tasty & generous in size. Our waitress was very attentive. Have recommended Devon to friends.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ServiceDevon is a great restaurant. The layout of the restaurant is perfect and the lighting makes for a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The service is absolutely wonderful. The staff is very attentive knowledgeable. So happy we were able to enjoy our Easter dinner at Devon.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCRABCAKES are Crazy delish!!Been to DEVON a million timesBest seafood in this area.Manager John Doyle is superb. .. friendly, great personality and can speak on any topic.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth Every PennyAlthough it was a little more noisy than I would have liked, the excellent food, drinks, and attentive service were more than enough to render this issue moot. Overall, I was very pleased.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful mealWhen I made the reservation I asked for a quiet table , when we arrived
They put us at a round table in a private area it was quiet and amazing
Our server was wonderful! It was Passover, and asked for Matzah instead
She informed us that she did not think they had any... Next thing we know
We had a basket of matzah. She told us they went to Parc and borrowed
Some. The food came quickly was my only negative but it is fresh
I highly recommend Devin!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
