    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP

    A real disappointment. Service was perfunctory - we were taking up their valuable time. The waiter hardly had time for us. Don't ask me his name - he never told us. Food - ok, but not any better than what I cook on my gas grill at home. Hardly worth the price. Noise - way too loud. Also, the kitchen/waiter messed up my wife's order - so I was served at one point in time, she had to wait an additional five minutes for her food to arrive. Some of the patrons were drunk and loud - but they fit right in. We will not go back.

    We had a private table in an alcove type room. This was perfect for our last visit. Our waiter was excellent and the food was outstanding as always. The seafood is fresh as Devon's motto is "What's on your plate tonight, was in the water yesterday." Try a ruby red margarita, a refreshing summer drink!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 8/13/2008
    The appetizers were great. The entree was marginal - we had the Mixed Brill: the scallops were great, the shrimp was extremely overcooked (I was shocked at how overdone they were) and the spinanch under the salmon was horrible. In addition, the service was very slow. I'll give it a second chance as it was packed and clearly a hot spot. In a great location but overall it did not deliver on the hype.

    Very disappointing: crowded, loud and very poor service. We sat close to the window seats so we had great people watching and thankfully our fish was fresh but other non-seafood items were fair at best. The server was overwhelmed and our food and drinks took quite sometime to receive. He even forgot to serve the wine we ordered with dinner. Great location as you are on the square but service much to be desired.

    The food was very good, but the service was spotty. The noise level was very high, due to the lack of "soft" surfaces in the decor. It wasn't overpowering, but it did detract from the dining experience. Dinner for two, with tip, was $140, which was pretty pricey, since that included a single glass of wine and no desserts.

We were also impressed by the other staff that visited our table. We definitely rate this as a great dinner spot and will be returning.

    Dinner at Devon's completed a week of sightseeing in Philly/Washington DC nicely. Good wine selection and far more affordable than some restaurants I visited this week. The sweet buttermilk biscuits may look like McDonald's but they're far more addictive. Didn't try any of the appetizers, but I saw others enjoying them and the variety of both appetizers and entrees is noteworthy. The panko-breaded shrimp was delicious and reasonably priced, with freshly-grated horseradish in the accompanying cocktail sauce. Fries and slaw were OK. Service was pleasant and efficient; no sign of the slow service I've seen mentioned in other reviews. The restaurant walls were opened in the warm summer evening and afforded a cheerful view of the canine antic

The Manager did come abd apologize and gave us free drinks. He stated that this was a back up in the kitchen. However, couples that came after us did receive their food before us.

    I choose this restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. Didn't receive any cake or ice cream. Disapointed. Our table was for 2 right next to a wine station, husband felt he was on an assembly line eith all commotion around him. My husband sat in hard chair while everyone else had soft, leather, high backs. Had to request a new chair. Then, the table next to us for 4 persons...only 2 sat there. Why did we get a small table when I noted in reservation it was a special occassion? So....felt like all the hype about this place was not there. The food was the only thing excellent. Will not eat there again with so many other lovely places to eat at. People like the small extras, the little things that count. Thanks, Dr. Darcy Bjornsso
