    The interior of the restaurant has a great vibe with cool historic sloped ceilings. We had a slow start to the service as we were the only ones outside, but once it got going it was great and servers were very helpful with our very hot dog. The food was excellent - we had lobster Cobb, tacos and crispy rice app -- all was tasty!

    Came for birthday celebration. Server was nice. Manager that came to our table was nice. Lobster tails were extremely salty had to send them back it happened before, crab cakes are not what they used to be. They used to be made mainly with large lump of crab, now they are mainly using shreds of crab and filler. Devon used to be the only place that had true good crab cakes. Not anymore. I would rather they increase the price and keep the quality. Probably won’t go back again. Sad after many years going

    Terrible service and food. They had a power surge at lunch during a very busy time. We decided to stick around instead of fleeing like other patrons in case the kitchen opened back up. They gave us some old soup and salad because they could only do cold pre-made things. The waitress barely came around. One member of our party asked for some bread that didn't have pepper. They served her a slice of bread on a plate. It was pathetic. When we asked about dessert they said they couldn't open the fridge? They didn't want to give us anything off our bill for our inconvenience, we had to ask and give a little nudge. Won't be returning. Terrible experience.

    A wonderful experience! Our server Michelle had great recommendations, and was extremely attentive. The ambience was lovely and the seatings were spaced to allow for a relaxed dining environment. Business causal dining was on the casual side, which was perfect for our group just getting into town from a day of travel.

    Unfortunately the service was poor. The waiter acted as if he was in a rush and had somewhere else to be. We ordered oysters and never received them because the waiter never put the order in! From a food perspective; the crab cakes were great, but the calamari was small, dry and tasteless. The dessert menu was limited…very disappointing

    Absolutely delicious seafood from Devon's seafood grill! We went there for Mother's Day to enjoy a night out on town in Philadelphia and from the venue to the food to the quick service it was a great experience! We tried fried calamari, the house bread, both salads they offer, crab cakes, surf and turf stake and lobster, mashed potatoes and red potatoes, asparagus & green beans and of course their carrot cake & crème brûlée! It was all absolutely wonderful and our server was great with quick service. All the food was fresh and full of flavor. I highly recommend going to this place for a date night or just visiting Philly! Rittenhouse Square is absolutely gorgeous at night! Right across the street from there to go take a walk around the park!
