    The reason why jambalaya was undercooked by a lot. Much of the rice was actually hard.

    Seems like the quality of food and service has been going down at this restaurant. My salmon was slightly overcooked and the service was a little spotty. The white wine, for the second time in 3 days came out at room temperature. We were told that the wine refrigerator was broken and would be fixed this week, which while good news, doesn't excuse drinking room temp white wine until it could properly chill in a bucket of ice and water. From eating dinner here twice in the last week, I would not be so quick to recommend the restaurant as I was about 6 months ago.

    Overall, a very good experience. One of the diners in my party ordered a fillet that was not cooked as he had specified to the server. The server was very accommodating and immediately took it back to the kitchen to be cooked to the desired doneness. Pleasant ambience although it could be a bit noisy at times. I would definitely go back.

    Devon is one of my favorite places to bring people who are visiting Philadelphia. They have a convenient location to anything we want to do before or after the meal and amazing people watching. They also have a good variety of items on the menu to accommodate whatever food restrictions people may have. Of course, the food is delicious and their biscuits are always a hit!

    Would have given 5 stars for service had Zack properly put in my husbands request for NO POTATOES & double vegetables instead. Also, we had to ask if biscuits were still being served, to which he replied Yes, I’ll bring you some. Would’ve been nice had he offered without being asked.

    Devon’s is one of our favorite places to dine but we haven’t been for a while considering everything that has been going on. However, Father’s Day dinner was excellent. Our server Michael J was so friendly. We enjoyed everything

    This has to be the worst experience I ever had in Devon. We waited over 30 minutes just for our waitress to give us water. The food was not cooked fully. We spent over 2 hours there, just got a bad experience.

    The waiter was terrible. He didn’t know how to take our order properly. He mixed up the drinks and food. We never got our salads. He brought over two soups that we did not order. He said they were free. Then on our bill he charged us for the two soups. The manager was so nice and tried her best to make things better. She was so busy though and it was not fair to her because the waiter kept screwing up. I’ve never had such horrible service in a restaurant before.

    The mixed seafood was excellent. The included salmone was super fresh. The food had a nice light touch of cajun seasonings Fairly priced entree. The only bummer was the usually delicious carrot cake. That I thought was uncharacteristically dry.

    The hostess was really unpollited with us, we had a situation and she was very rude. I will think if next time I will celebrate a lunch time with my team and my boss at Devon. I love the restaurant but this situation was really unpleasure for us. The waitress was really good, warm and supportive, for her congrats!

    Menu was not 30$ and under, not the challenge, which was the attitude of the help. Perhaps because I am a black man, & non-regular guest, the attitude was such, hopefully than rather the entire restaurant having said attitude.

    The hostess was rude and unhelpful: turned away a party with no reservation, and then suddenly seated them outside while keeping my party of 6 (with a reservation and someone using a walker) standing by. Clear case of favoritism based on her preferred characteristics of “guests.” Disgustingly obvious. Our dinner dishes were never cleared and piled up on our table throughout our meal- dirty plates and glasses as well as shells from seafood. Followed by $470 bill. All the ambience of dining in a third world country without the low price.

    My wife and I have been treating Devon as our special occasion restaurant for 15 years. As we realize the pandemic has been difficult for the hospitality industry, we have been underwhelmed in our past two experiences. Last night, we were sat at table 6, in the furthest corner away from the entrance. There was an exposed wire wrapped above our heads and leftover trash on the floor. All of our entrees were plated with no attention to detail (my sons filet was place on top of his whipped potatoes—which turned a brownish/grey from butter and runoff of the meat) & our sides were not fresh or cooked to order (the asparagus was limp and roasted potatoes were soft, mushy, and felt like they in a warming tray all weekend). The serving staff could not recognize the food they delivered to the table (identifying my Arctic Char as Salmon). By the end of the night, for a table of 5, we had 14 glasses on our table. This was a place we held dear in our hearts, it was a place we looked forward to dining because it meant a special occasion, it has lost that for us.
