Food was great as always! Service was a bit slow with food and drinks. Due to the lack of staff and the lift of COVID-19 restrictions in Philly this may have caused an overwhelming amount of people but our waitress did a great job communicating and being honest with everything! Transparency is key, we will definitely be returning again soon!

We dined outside on a beautiful evening. The food was very good. The service was sub par, although all our needs were met our server was lax in the attention we deserved. Specifically, dishes were not cleared from the table, water not refilled over a long period, little things that make the dining experience enjoyable.

We chose outdoor seating for the evening (6pm reservation). Took us about 5 minutes to be seated. Our server was very nice. Order came pretty quickly and we enjoyed our dinner!

I loved the swordfish which I had been missing during the pandemic. My companion had the lobster rolls which I thought were small but she was happy with them. Our server was very helpful, pleasant, and attentive. It's fun to sit under the tent and watch people walk by. The noise from the restaurant made it difficult to hear each other talk.

Ate outdoors and there were some fumes from cars going by. Food was excellent overall. One person got the tuna melt and said the tuna was overcooked and a bit dry. Everything else was delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant. Have eaten here many times and will definitely go back.

I go to Devon for the oysters on the half. This visit they only had two types, down from the more regular offering of 5 to 6 varieties. The NS that I tried were excellent. Up to standard. I don't know anyplace in Philadelphia that I'd prefer for oysters.

I normally NEVER HAVE AN ISSUE WITH Devons… I’ve been over 20 times as it used to be my favorite restaurant. But I’ve never had any establishment bring me out my take home order 1st before my entree!! That was the worst. Then my seafood mixed grille was over cooked.. no mashed potatoes to go with the meal .. they gave me roasted potatoes instead. VERY HIGHY Disappointed!

It was good to be back in a busy restaurant, but it was rather noisy. Excellent oysters, friendly service and good wine. We particularly enjoyed the lobster risotto with the seared scallops. The ciopino could have benefitted from dialing down the tomato and being smoother and creamier.

The best part of this night was the food - it was outstanding. We dined on a Monday and it was not busy - but the service was seriously lacking. It took an extremely long time to receive our drinks as well as little tasks like clearing plates. We asked multiple times for our empty water glasses to be refilled. Again, the food was amazing but the service was definitely subpar for the price.

I’m a regular customer and enjoy lunch here at least once a week. Everything is always great, I’m warmly welcomed at the check in podium, the servers are all friendly and knowledgeable , the menu has a good variety of choices, and the pricing is reasonable for the excellent quality and atmosphere. Try the Lobster Bisque and Crab cakes and perhaps surprisingly the Burger! Share the carrot cake, it’s enough for four!

The location across from the park was enjoyable. We sat in the bar area but since it was such a warm night that patio doors were open and we enjoyed the semi alfresco dining. Our meals were delicious and prepared properly. The oysters was big and vert tasty. Desserts are huge and should be shared.

My husband thinks it was the best seafood he has ever had; I put it in the top two and my number one among “white table cloth” restaurants ( my number one comes with paper on the table over looking the bay). Great for special occasions or just a Friday night out. We could not decide on what to order and both went with the sampler; can’t go wrong ( and the mashed potatoes and asparagus were both wonderful).

Food was fantastic. Had fresh mussels for appetizer, ahi tuna for the main meal (blackened and with an amazing sauce), and vanilla crème brûlée for dessert (perfectly crisped crust, the cream the perfect amount of sweet, with raspberries on top). Hubby had the maple plank salmon (also amazing). We booked for an early time (5:30) due to the lack of availability of a later time and it worked perfectly because there were very few people in the section we were seated, with booths well-separated (very helpful during a pandemic). Servers were attentive and helpful. What a pleasant experience!

Food was very good. Informed Bay of Fundy Salmon was wild caught Atlantic Salmon. I believe all Atlantic Salmon is now farm raised. Wine vintage not the same as published on the menus. Caesar chicken salad excellent, as were the lump crab cakes - all meat little filler.

Well positioned outside seating. Food very good as usual. Service exceptional from our Server Brooke and the other support folks. Very attentive. We were here 2 years ago for a small Bday event ... and our recent visit held up their already high standard. I also appreciated Mgmt's stance to support their frontline staff and understand the human aspects of Service. They decided NOT to open 100% and put their clients in jeopardy and overwork their existing short staff. This is smart long term strategy as childcare can disrupt the rehiring of the team. Wonderful place ... compassionate Mgmt, great food, and fantastic staff make this a must stop in Philadelphia. BTW we were there for 3 hours enjoying the ambiance!!

The servers were friendly and nice, but the service was slow. We were a party of 4 and one of our out of town guests was presented with the salmon when she had ordered the tuna. She graciously accepted the meal as she did not want all of us to be eating while she waited for the correct order. The salmon was dry. It was most disappointing. They comped us a dessert for the mistake but that was not enough given the price of the meals. I probably won’t return.

Devon is my favorite place to meet my friends for a long lunch - full of great food and lots of laughing. The selection has something for everyone - and the service is always outstanding . Devon's location - right on Rittenhouse Square guarantees a colorful parade of passers-by ..... the restaurant is comfortable for small parties or larger gatherings - and all ages . Smart casual dress. My " go-to" restaurant to impress any suburban friends or family !
