This was my first time coming to this restaurant and I must admit I am very pleased. I am a tough one to please especially being a picky eater but the food was AMAZING overall. The only thing I didn’t too much care for was the lobster Mac n cheese . Being a huge fan of Mac n cheese I was disappointed. The only reason why I didn’t give service 5 star is because after finishing dinner, the waitress asked how everything was and how I liked the Mac. I made a face and she continued and said “wasn’t good right?” As If she knew I ordered something that wasn’t up to par. I would have appreciated if she removed it from the bill since I only took one bite. But other than that she was great. Overall the experience was amazing and I will definitely be back. Just don’t order the Lobster Mac 🙃

Everything was great , the only con is being sat by the glass doors and it being freezing

We had a larger party (7 ppl) and they didn’t seem to have the table set for 7 it was set for 6 so we had to ask them multiple times for extra place settings. But it was great otherwise, food was fantastic our server was great as well.

This was our first time here. We went during restaurant week. We were not disappointed! The food was amazing. We had a medley of seafood- tuna, salmon, shrimp, scallops, crab cakes. Everything was so fresh and delicious. Our waiter Cesar was very attentive even though the restaurant was packed. This is a great place to get amazing food and be pampered. We will definitely be back!

The only good part about the food was the lobster bisque. Everything else was just not tastful or appealing. The service was sub par and I felt like I was a bother the entire meal. Just not a good experience overall.

Despite the madness of restaurant week at lunchtime, my table had the best server! She was so prompt and attentive without being overbearing. I enjoyed my lunch and would do it again. I’ve never had a bad experience with food at Devon.

The drinks were very poorly made. We had the restaurant week cocktail special. What a waste of great Japanese whiskey. Yuzu plus lemon but all you could taste was lemon. The entire glass was just lemon juice. It over powered the rest of the drink.

With three people we tried to have variety and each order a different entree from the restaurant week. The maple glazed Salmon was the best. The crab cakes were great too, mostly just crab meat, very little filling, but the sides that came with each dish were pretty underwhelming. Asparagus with the crab cakes were bitter and otherwise tasteless. Lobster risotto that came with my seared scallops had zero lobster flavor nor taste and the flavor didn’t mix well with the scallops (probably because it was missing the lobster/seafood taste). Tasted like a vegetable risotto. I didn’t bother trying the sides with the salmon because it seemed they weren’t very good at pairings.

We ordered all 3 of the dessert options, determined to try everything. All 3 were disappointing unfortunately.

Devons was a great time. Our server was entertaining and on point- and acknowledged our celebration and handled a crowd well. The food and drinks were Devine.

I was there for Restaurant Week and had the crab cakes. The food was superb from salad through dessert. I had an early reservation and was seated promptly. The place was packed and the noise level was very high. The dinner was spoiled by a number of customers who didn’t know how to act in public. I’m not sure what if anything the management can do about this. The saving grace was the great value and the attentive but not intrusive service.

We had an Excellent server Felicia. The food was delicious and enjoyed by the entire party. The seating ..a table in the back slightly obscured allowed for conversation without struggling to hear because of the noise level. The menu selection for restaurant week was worth the price.

The food was delicious. We had to wait a half hour past our reservation standing in the lobby. Then we were seated in the bar which was ultra noisy. The service was excellent but the table was squashed in the corner and not comfortable.

Went there for restaurant week. Food was delicious (especially the lobster bisque). It was a little noisy but not in a negative way. This is my second time going to Devon Seafood Grill and will definitely be back.

Best spot in Rittenhouse Square area for a business lunch. You can carry on a conversation, unlike many other area restaurants. Tables are far enough apart that you don't end up wanting to chime in on the next table's conversation. Food is uniformly excellent, and service prompt, efficient, and professional.

We had an amazing time while visiting from Dallas. Our server (Devon) was impeccable - so friendly, helpful and attentive. He made our dining experience so enjoyable!

Our food was delicious - we had lobster bisque, scallops, crab cakes, and chocolate cake for dessert. I’d highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family!

Great opportunity to try this restaurant at a savings for restaurant week and half price wine bottles on Sundays to boot. Our meals- salmon and steak frite - were very good and the berries with crime anglaise for dessert were excellent. I would definitely come again; however, there was one issue as the lettuce in my salad had a bit of grit so please advise the kitchen to do more thorough washing! My waitress was excellent. I enjoyed the atmosphere even though a bit noisy.
