I booked via Open Table, included a message that it was my cousin's 50th birthday. We arrived alittle early, were seated promptly and all staff acknowledged the birthday sash and crown my cousin was wearing. We tried to provide our waiter with our cosmo drink order but he was having such difficulty understanding that we wanted one sweeter since they didn't have flavored vodka as requested. So I went to the bar, placed the order and paid. As I maneuvered back to my table, our waiter saw me struggling not to spill and walked in the opposite direction! Our 3rd party arrive about 10 min late and stated he waited for 5 min for hostess/host to seat. My cousin ordered Chilean sea bass, a different fish was served. The waiter did remove. The female manager came over to question us regarding our concerns, never provided her name and only indicated that she was the manager after I stated that I inform another staff member about our service. She seemed very defensive and continued to indicate that we were wrong! Finally, the dessert selection of 4 items didn't include chocolate cake and no effort to even place a candle in a biscuit for her birthday was presented!! I have been a faithful diner at Devon for over 10yrs and I was totally embarrassed by this treatment, since I brought 2 people to dine. I will not be returning!

The service and food was great. The only issue I had was a lot of gnats were flying around the table. I was swiping around my table every 5 minutes.

We came for crabs. They did have any due the high market price. Did not have a variety of shrimp choices. Menu was limited, I imagine due to COVID

This was my 1st time dining there, I live out of state in Georgia. I flew in to celebrate my birthday with friends & family. My Reservation was made a month in advance.
When I arrived, I was told I could not be seated until every member of my party of 8 was present. Three members of my party was stuck in Philly Friday rush hour traffic. I wanted to be seated to start ordering drinks and appetizers with the Five members that was present. The remaining 3 members could join later and just get in where they fit in. I asked to speak to the manager because I was ready to Celebrate by bday and the clock was ticking away. The manager did not seat me, so we waited a bit.
We spoke to a second manager and after several minutes of negotiations, she finally let us be seated. I mean what's the bid deal, the dining area was not even fully packed to capacity.
We were introduced to our waiter Isaac and he quickly turned around our mood and provided the most outstanding service. Thank goodness for him because I was disappointed at first. He saved my bday Celebration!
My remaining 3 members joined 35 minutes later and we all left there Happy.

Side Note: A child pulled the fire alarm and we were disturbed for about 30 minutes of a very very loud intolerable sound until the fire department arrived to disarm it! They need to cover that in a glass box!
Aside from that loud disturbance, I enjoyed how my evening turned out. The restaurant did provide a discount for the disturbance.

Not sure if I will return there though since Management made me feel like celebrating my Birthday there as a 1st time customer from out of state was just another regular day that was unimportant. No empathy or compassion. What a way to greet a 1st timer with the opposite of Southern Hospitality that I'm accustomed to receiving.

Important to note that this visit is post-pandemic when restaurant staffing is short in the entire industry. Our server was knowledgeable and pleasant. We had to ask for water and bread and at a restaurant at this level this should be automatic. Service was slow. I attribute this completely to workforce shortages. The food was excellent though the serving sizes are smallish. Even if the high cost items (protein) have to be controlled, cheap starches such as potatoes should compensate. I would never pass on an opportunity to enjoy a fine meal at Devon, and Reader, you shouldn't either.

Food was average. Fried lobster was good but the lobster mac and cheese isn't worth the upcharge. Also, if you want raw oysters, BEWARE, they are small compared to other restaurants.

Food was good. However, I would recommend offering "fresh" blue cheese stuffed olives, rather than the bottled ones for dirty martinis, this can make or break a true dirty martini. Additionally, I would ensure that the trashcan be moved from the area prior to seating patrons for outdoor dinning. Overall, service and food met my expectations.

Devon has become my favorite place to lunch with friends from the city as well as the suburbs. The food and the service are always terrific , and the view out to the Rittenhouse Park is colorful and vibrant, as our neighbors move thru their day.
Plenty of great choices on the menu, no matter what your appetite is !

Food was subpar, we were seated all the way in the back of the restaurant, in may i add was a filthy booth, and felt forgotten. Also, there was a loud and quite obnoxious party seated near us that made our experience all the more unpleasant. I was embarrassed to have brought someone to this establishment and will not be returning.

Initially we entered the restaurant 5 minutes past the reservation grace period due to the lack of parking because of the outdoor dining areas in the neighborhood that have decreased available parking. The hostess didn’t greet us & told us our reservation was cancelled when we advised of our arrival. Considering there was ample seating available, I requested to speak with the manager and she was more than helpful. We were seated swiftly & had a fabulous server. The food was delicious & the outdoor dining was one of the best we’ve experienced considering the space wasn’t cramped.

Reservation still required a 15 minute wait before we were seated, one of people doing check in wasn’t all that welcoming. Once seated our table wobbled very badly, no linens on it but there were linens on the outside tables? The waiter ended up propping our table for us, his service was good the food was okay, but i’ve had better food and service in places with much less of a bill. I may try and go again, i wouldn’t say not to go. Maybe it was an off night for them.

It was uncomfortable having peddlers approach the table for money while eating. May be a city problem, but I think there should be signs posted no soliciting and managers should tell the peddlers to move along.

It’s was not what I expected from the restaurant. The waiter forgot to put in our appetizer so it came with dinner. They did not have asparagus or spinach ended up being green beans without asking when I have allergies. The food was terrible ended up sending it back. The only thing we enjoyed were the drinks. Bad experience most likely won’t return. Our waiter seemed frazzled and confused when asking simple questions.

Devon's food was tasty. However, the scallops special at $36 should have more than 7 scallops. At least 10 scallops minimum considering the price.
