I hope our dining experience is not indicative of the current state of Devon's in Rittenhouse Square. I love this restaurant and in the past (I come to Philly for work) the food has been delicious and the service good.
This visit, the service was horrid. I arrived with 2 work colleagues (who I had gushed about the restaurant to) and we were promptly seated in a booth - seemed good so far. Sadly, this was the highlight of the evening. Our server was totally new and should not be serving customers. It took a long time to become recognized with her (to be honest, the restaurant was busy for a Monday night, but....)
we placed an order for a shared appetizer and waited....and waited. The appetizer arrived before our server came back to take our beverage order and we also were worried we wouldn't see her again soon, so we placed our dinner order
We consume the appetizer, no one asked if it was ok or not (it was good by the way, crackling cauliflower or something). When we spotted our server we asked about our drinks (2 beers and a glass of wine). She said the bar was really busy (seriously to pour 3 items??), the beers arrived fine, but my glass of RED wine arrived in a WHITE wine glass. I asked the server if I could have my wine in a red wine glass and she asked me what one was....
when you think, ok, she's new, young...let's give it a break. Then our dinner orders come to the table with a food runner - 2 mixed grill specials and 1 appetizer order of crab cakes. Say WHAT???
The server, now really flustered had messed up the order and didn't order the dinner serving of crab cakes (so simple, yet still could not believe this error). The manager comes over, apologies, the server says its her first day (um, yes we sort of noticed with the lack of service) and finally the 'new' order of crab cakes comes out.
I thought, geeze, what a disaster of a work dinner of a restaurant I had raved about. well, when I thought it couldn't get worse it did....charged for

I got a $48.00 filet and crabmeat special. The steak was raw not medium rare and there was hardly any crabmeat. I wold have expected more for the price. The room was so hot we were uncomfortable. The waitress was great and the restaurant was beautiful!

Excellent dining establishment. Very enjoyable with outstanding service and ambiance. The only issue was with my wife's dinner, which had a couple of ingredients missing from her entree. If you like seafood, put this place down for a try.

Fifth time eating here and we’ve never had a bad experience. Wait staff is outstanding and entire staff makes you feel as if you are their most important customer, so rare these day. An evening at Devons is not only great food, but a great experience. You won’t be disappointed.

I have to say that with this being my first experience with Devons it was great. The wait for seating was right away. You know most times when you go out to eat that you have to wait and wait for your food to come but the service was out standing. We had no wait and they even brought out a complimentary dessert and sang happy birthday to my boyfriend. Overall it was a great evening. I would recommend a night out to Devons anytime.

I took a friend there for her birthday dinner and we had a great time. The waiter went above and beyond and we had a really nice night thanks to him. The drinks and food were really good. We stayed a while and did not feel rushed out of our seats either which was really nice. I look forward to returning again soon!

It was very noisy and very warm. Two of our foursome moved to the bar after dinner because they were hot. It was extremely noisy. No ambience. Food was good - not great. $34 for crab cakes is overpriced. Chocolate ice cream barely tasted it looked like chocolate.

The family and I have been here a few times. This place never disappoints me. Our waiter Cesear was very attentive and understanding to my wife dietary restrictions. He communicated my wife's concerns to the chef and was able to alternate the dish for her. We love coming here because the food and experience has all been great.

Arrived for our Anniversary dinner. Although the hostess didn't seem to care and wasn't very friendly regarding the occasion, our waitress and Shannon made it feel more special. Food was lovely and so was the wine selection. We'll return and once again, make the request for a more quieter table.

We have been to Devon many times over a dozen years. It was always a good experience. Saturday was the worst we have experienced. Service and wait staff were fine. The food was disappointing. My wife had pasta with shrimp and scallops. She said it "blah". I had the Cioppina. It has a lotta broth, but not a lotta fish and seafood. It was very disappointing. When we return to Philly we will look at other venues. It was underwhelming.
