    Great food & excellent service. The service slowed a little when an exceptionally large group came in, but that was towards the end of our meal. My mojitos were perfect. Two of us ordered fromn the $35 prix fixe menu: Choice of soup or salad, Devon's famous crab cakes, and a dessert. Our table shared an app of fried calamari w/jalenos -- wonderful!

    Excellent fresh fish- some of the best I've had in Philly. Great soups- Gumbo was spicy and delicious. Sides were average. Went for my grandparents' 55th anniversary and they sat us in a small, private corner of the main dining room, which was very nice.

    I have eaten here before without incident, but on this visit the service was horrible. It took 10 minutes before anyone even visited our table. The entrees were brought about 3 minutes after we recieved our salads and appetizers. Then the desserts took almost 40 minutes after ordering them and upon complaining to the manager, we received our desserts for free. Food was fine, but with service that poor, we won't be back for a while.

    We have eaten here several times and always enjoyed ourselves. The menu is very pricey and that's why we don't eat here more often ... $170 for two adults and 1 child. The waiter we had was new ... claimed it was his first day ... and never got into a rhythm so service was very slow. And he screwed up my order ... the prixfixe crabcakes serving instead a crab cake, salmon, shrimp, scallop "mixed grill" and telling me it was the crab cake platter even when I questioned him.

    The fresh seafood choices were excellent. The Lobster Bisque was outstanding. Wines were excellent and well served as were the cocktails. Great atmosphere for people who like classic lively restaurants like Sullivans, Captial Grille, and Bobby Vans, but prefer Seafood.

    The food was excellent as was the service. Although, at this point, I cannot remember our server's name (tall man, white male with glasses and dark hair) he provided excellent and attentive service. The only suggestion I would recommend is for the restaurant to provide a cleaner restroom. I used the restroom on the first floor and was very disappointed with hand napkin package thrown on the vanity and the floors didn't appear to clean.

    The food was excellent. The location is meticulous. The practice of serving rolls and butter with tongs seems very nice... until the butter is bobbled and hits the table hard, splashing half of the butter across my colleague's bust line. Overall a pleasant experience, but for the small service errors.

    The wait for food was a little ridiculous. The waitors come up with multiple and quite varied excuses of why the wait for the food was so long which made it difficult to decide which version of the excuse to believe in. Otherwise, not a bad place and may consider returning.

    The greeter must have previously worked at US Air. She seriously stares at her pc screen. The poor eye contact combined with the missing smile is a cold reception. Once she spots the reservation, the wait was far too long with 30 people queueing in the entrance. Not a good first impression. The chairs are past their prime. When you sit, you sink below your knees. This restaurant is a gem. Please don't take the customers for granted and rest on the reputation.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 5/17/2008
    I have been going to Devon Seafood on a regular basis since it opened years ago. I was a member of their dining club. I did not recognize the restaurant that I ate at on May 17. The time between courses was extremely long ... after a long wait, the appetizers were served and one guest was told at that point that his fish order was not available. My lobster bisque was not served in the way it used to be -- poured at the table into a soup bowl _ it tasted and had consistancy of being reheated. After another long wait, I was told that they had only one softshell crab left (our table had order two) -- this was about an hour after we placed our orders. Most of the meals were not hot.

    very poor waiter who rushed us with our food delivery---bringing entree while we were still eating appetizer---then constantly interrupted us asking things like pepper?, is everything alright? while we were engaged in serious conversation.................then I used a gift certificate to pay for part of the meal and he loudly announced how much he had sub tracted from the bill to reflect the gift certificate rather thasn just deliveing the check with the credit shown. I am regular customer but this was a very poor waiter who needs much better training.

Also one of the best places to go if you don't have a reservation -- the actual wait is only a fraction of what they tell you. If they say 45 minutes, you'll probably be seated in about 25.
