Met a friend here for restaurant week. The food was great. We loved the salmon and the apple pie dessert was perfect.

First visit in 10 years, very disappointing. Felt like I was in a red lobster. Took too long for dinner and when it came was fair at best. Servers all ran to front door to engage in someone stealing versus taking care of customer. Server admitted cook was at door also. That's why food took so long. Servers kept calling Matt and making remarks its a shame he's not around. Filet was a burnt hockey puck. Friend;s one pound lobster tail was dry and less than a pound. Server came to apologize three times because food took so long. Never saw a manager .

The food was good ,but the mussels seemed a bit under cooked , the prices were reasonable, but the service was not good at all. The table waiter took 30 minutes to see if we were ok, he forgot our drinks then he also forgot to bring the desert, by the time he remembered after serving the ppl that came in after us, I told him that I didn’t want it and to bring me a check. Being that I’m in the customer service field myself I still left a 20% tip in hope that he doesn’t keep up the bad work

We went during restaurant week, but ordered from the regular menu. I have to mention that it was restaurant week because it was exceptionally loud, and I am assuming that it was partly because of that.

Best lobster rolls I have ever had. The butternut squash risotto was absolutely heavenly. For dessert, the cookie box is a must try.

The food was okay. I’ve had better meals that cost half of what we paid here. The worst part of the experience was our waiter. She was miserable and rude the entire time. This was our first and last date to Devon’s.

Place was packed. That being said, we had been seated in a corner area near a serving entrance. Had requested a cozy warm spot for a date but we were OK with the seating. The noise was a bit excessive but manageable. Server was very good, food was really good. Went for restaurant week and ordered off the restaurant week menu. Bottle of wine added a nice touch and was very good. The biggest issue was actually not with the restaurant but with some of the patrons. I like to keep to myself and not have to endure the drama of others. Guess that can happen anywhere.....
My experience was overall very enjoyable. Not sure how much the restaurant had much to do with it but my date was wonderful.

My friends and I chose to dine at Devon's for Restaurant Week because we knew we could depend on the food and service being quality. We each had crab cakes, mashed potatoes and asparagus. I also had the lobster bisque and apple pie with ice cream. We each were pleased with our selections.

Came for restaurant week lunch and 3 course for $20, cant be beat! I had Lobster Bisque (which is hands down the best thing on the menu), 6 oz Sirloin with Yukon mashed potatoes and asparagus, and apple crumble with ice cream for dessert. 6oz sirloin was delicious and cooked to perfection, mashed potatoes and asparagus were great along side. Apple crumble had a lot of oats in it but was great; contained raisins that I am not a fan of but overall dessert was good! Cheddar black pepper biscuits served with maple butter are worth coming for alone!
Server was Brooke and she was so nice!
Always great when I attend!

There were 4 of us there during Restaurant week. We took advantage of the limited menu offering. We were Not disappointed. I had the lobster bisque soup and crab cakes... Delicious! Topped it off with a Chocolate mousse cake.. WOW!
The Space is deceiving from the outside. Once inside everything opens up with high arched ceilings, kind of a train station feel. For our first time dining at Devon, we were very happy with our experience. I RECOMMEND!

I visited during restaurant week. I almost was not seated because the open table reservation I made was not sent to the restaurant and they were booked; I was seated after showing them my reservation. The lobster bisque was cooler than room temperature and the salmon was cooked too rare. The place was packed and the noise level was high, but that didn’t bother me. Overall I would recommend it to people to try out, but I’m not interested in returning myself.
