Food was just bad. Sent back a shrimp cocktail after one bite. Shrimp were on ice but not cold and mushy instead of crisp. They took it off the bill. Server brought bread on a sheet pan. Ours were stuck to the pan, but wrestled off and served. Scallops were small, but not seasoned. Crab cakes tasted of way too much Old Bay or maybe cayenne, but not much of crab. We went based on good reviews. Would not go back.

The outdoor dining experience was nice, even in cold weather. Wait person was enthusiastic and helpful; only detriment was that almost all the food took a while to come out.

Our first Thanksgiving at Devon was wonderful!
The outdoor tent was cozy and we felt comfortable throughout. No complaints and we enjoyed the people watching. Would do it again even if there wasn't covid.

The sides for the Thanksgiving dinner were excellent! Turkey is turkey but it's the sides that really make a Thanksgiving meal.

Excellent service, although the staff at the check-in stand could be more welcoming and less "out to lunch"

Perhaps the shape of the ceiling had voices carry. Even voices at the next table felt like it was echoed from a distance.

The Thanksgiving Dinner Menu was very disappointing. The Turkey was not slices but broken pieces of meat resembling scraps left over after carving. The sweet potatoes were cold. The creme brulee was thick not lite and airy resembling heavy pudding. The biscuits were delicious, the coffee was strong and hot and enjoyable. The meal overall was way way overpriced for the poor quality of the food.

Outstanding dining experience made possible by our gentleman server Isaac. We felt so cared for by him. He shared insights on the menu, made suggestions, and timed the delivery of each course perfectly. My husband had the salmon and I had the tuna each was prepared to perfection and served on warm plates (that really matters). All said, Isaac made our evening special his professional demeanor along with a great smile and sense of humor made him our new favorite.

Very disappointing. My lobster bisque soup had two pieces of shell in it and was served lukewarm with some of the lobster meat cold. The soup may have come from a can and had lobster meat added. I had filet mignon which was cooked and seasoned well, but the sides (lobster risotto and asparagus) were terrible and I didn’t finish them. I won’t return.

The order didn’t follow proper sequence. Soup was missed due to a kitchen printer error. Sound served after main course. No management presence but an excellent server.

I have been to Devon several times over the years and loved it. Never had a bad experience until last night. I’m not sure if they are short staffed so they are hiring anyone to fill positions, but the staff is certainly inexperienced. My boyfriend and I had 8:45pm reservations. We waited some time to be seated but rather than the girls at the hostess stand letting us know that our table is ready as we stood right in front of them, I received a text on my phone which was in my bag so I got the text when I checked my phone 10 mins later. They never mentioned that I would receive a text. Our server Moriah was very nice. However, the service was horrible. She was nowhere to be found whenever we needed something. When the food came, my bf’s entree was wrong so they did bring out the correct entree. Never checked on us to see if we needed anything during dinner until we were almost finished when she asked if we wanted dessert and attempted to take my dish while I was still eating making us feel rushed. We did end up getting dessert. The food was good. My bf did not like his meal. The bill came. It was approximately $157.00. My bf gave his card to pay. The server brought back the credit card slips only and neglected to include the itemized bill. We were charged $201.00. Not sure what we were charged for - perhaps a service charge? My bf flagged down a manager and asked if gratuity was added. She said they do not charge gratuity on checks. At that point, I would’ve asked for another printout of our bill to see exactly what we were charged for. Instead, my bf just wanted to get out of there so he tipped $42.00 in cash to be done with it. When I got out of the booth to put my coat on which was still in the booth, the bus person came right over and started collecting dishes. My phone was also still on the table. Like can you give us a minute to gather our things before rushing over to clear the table? The whole experience horrible.

We had a delicious lunch. My husband had the trout with two sides and I had the lobster cobb salad. Both were delicious. There was a lot of lobster in the salad. We started with the goat cheese bruschetta which came with crackers and delicious creamy goat cheese on a bed of bruschetta tomatoes. So good. The service was excellent. Would highly recommend this seafood restaurant on Rittenhouse Square.

Our hostess Ms. Pamela was amazing! Please ask for her if you choose to visit. The food (mussels & lobster bisque soup) was very bland. Their best part of the meal was their biscuits, creme brûlée and lemon drop martinis.

When it comes to dining out in Philly you can't go wrong at Devon Seafood Grill. The maple glazed salmon was crispy on the outside and cooked perfectly inside. Service is always perfect. We dined outside and felt like we were in Paris.

I went there for lunch after not being there for many years and the food is still consistently good. Our server Michelle was on point too and went above and beyond. My friend and I each had the lobster Cobb salad which was delicious and of course the biscuits are still good too!
