The seating area in the restaurant is very crowded. The area has vaulted ceilings that are tiled, reminiscent of an old train station. Although attractive, it has the property of reflecting and seemingly amplifying sound. Many times in the evening, you had to repeat what you were saying just across the table. Our server and the food salvaged the night, both were great. If you like loud and crowded restaurants that have good food, you'll be fine here. I prefer good food and conversation in a relaxed setting, and there are so many better options for that in Philadelphia.
Devon is like an upscale Steak House, but with fresh daily seafood instead. The sides are steak-house quality...the appetizers are tantalizing & intriguing. The warm biscuits are a melt-in-your-mouth welcome to dinner, but I wanted them offered more than once.
The Wine List/Cocktail selections were extensive and innovative. Reservations are a must...and we went twice in 5 days!
Been here many times and always excellent.
Very professional and knowledgable, while accommodating my time constraints vs the rest of my group. Food-wise- you can't go wrong with the crab cakes!
So delicious. Way too expensive for anything besides a really special occasion.
While I have visited Devons many times and it is on my list of top 10 restaurants; the staff and the waiter was not very attentive, didn't pay attention to detail and did not have any personality on this visit. The food was medium in temperature and not of the normally high quality. I was especially disappointed because it was my birthday and I was introducing my family to the restaurant for the first time. We had a party of 7 which is not overwhelming but guaranteed to have gratuity included in the check. My birthday dinner was not a wish come true!
I have eaten here before probably 2 dozen times for lunch and dinner, but not in the last 6-8 months, and the place has taken a real nose dive. This was supposed to be a special dinner with my retired boss/ mentor and his wife who wanted a good seafood meal. The chronology tells the tale: 5:30: arrive. 9:45: check arrives; I leave the smallest tip I have ever left. In between, we were ignored by our waitress, had to ask 6x for butter knives; had individual courses for the 3 of us arrive 20 minutes apart; twiddled our thumbs a great deal; time between courses up to an hour; food cold. The place was not busy; there were staff everywhere. No one apologized, offered an explanation. In short no one cared. I would never eat here again.
We've had lunch & dinner here a few times; one of the few we like to visit; the food is always well prepared, flavors are complementary and well thought of for choices; service is courteous & friendly; a repeat customer.
My wife and I came to the Devon Seafood Grill for our anniversary. We had a fantastic time, the food was outstanding. For our appetizer we had the shrimp cocktail and the Pemaquid muscles, both were excellent. For the main course my wife had the seafood mixed grill and I had the NY Strip and lobster mac and cheese, she said the crab cakes were the best she has ever had and my strip was cooked perfectly rare and was incredible. Our server Carol could not have been better, attentive, engaging and who we will be asking for again on our next visit.
Never have we had better service and food. We took family there for the first time, all are from New York and are used to New York restaurants, and all were delighted with Devon Sea Food Grill. The one drawback is the noise level, which is due to the architecture, but the high arched ceilings and brickwork are so interesting that we didn't mind the noise.
The restaurant was very annoying children ages appx 1 to 3 very loud screaning and banging of table server & manager were informed only response from manager "they are leaving soon" noise continued for another 20 minutes until they left.
Perfect place to meet friends and have a leisurely lunch or dinner. Food is fabulous (lobster rolls, lobster cobb salad to die for!)Servers don't rush you and they have great wines.
Everything associated with the food and drinks and that service was wonderfulThe hostesses definitely need more training.
Poorly trained staff across the board.
An order of Mahi Mahi was served almost raw. This was brought to the attention of the waitstaff who agreed and removed the plate to return to the kitchen. In the meantime my companion's meal remained on the table. I suggested they proceed with their meal while I waited. After approximately 5 minutes my meal was returned on the same plate with the side vegetables now warm. In general the meal was less than satisfactory. The waitstaff made no attempt to properly correct the kitchen's error. This lis evidence the entire staff are not properly trained nor supervised which leads me to not recommend this establishment as consistency of service and quality of food is what generates return customers.
Tara is a wonderful waitress ! Appreciated her do much!
Love this restaurant. Puts on no pretenses just good fresh food and great staff.
Comfortable Atmospher, friendly service and delicious food equals a great restaurant for lunch.
Too long a wait for main course.
Great food at a price that did not break the bank! We really enjoyed our window seat!
The salmon was very good but undercooked.
The asparagus was thin and stringy
The room was pleasant and not noisy
The under crust on the key-lime pie was doughy. A crushed pecan crust would have been much better. The rest of the pie was quite good.
This time around, the food did not quite meet the standards that previsously had been enjoyed...crab cakes were undercooked and our entrees were not served hot.
Great place for a special lunch. Delicious food.
I've been to Devon for lunch and dinner. There are lots of great choices for the meals, and everything has been delicious. I am definitely going back again.
We always enjoy our meals at Devon Seafood Grill. We try to come to Philadelphia at least twice a year and always make Devon a place to visit.
Eight of us dined here last Sunday for brunch. Our experience was that our server was disinterested in ensuring that our experience was one that would encourage us to return (perhaps auto gratuity?). We constantly had to flag down wait-staff for ordering and food came out when it was ready so people were dining at various times. Skip this for brunch!
Our server Deanna was the best! We were celebrating a birthday and she was so attentive, interested and genuinely cared about our evening- just the BEST- and the food was outstanding as we'll...can't go wrong with any seafood choice...
Food was excellent. Service was good, although we would have preferred a little more time between courses. The only negative was the location of our table. My husbands back was in a high traffic area and he was bumped into by other guests going back and forth. The the staff seemed to be able to avoid bumping into him.
Have never been to Philly before and picked this place at random from Open Table. Had a great meal, outstanding service, and a nice variety of dishes to choose from.
Devon is always standard for excellent service, good food and comfortable dining
We have dined here many times and have always loved everything. Was it just an "off" night, as our dinner this time was quite disappointing? The menu offerings seems to have decreased. Our server was just not into serving us. We split a Caesar salad and what used to be a fairly nice salad to share was very small. We ordered a 2 pound lobster, also to share, and the presentation left a lot to be desired. They didn't split it, like they used to. It was brought out on one plate with fries going soggy from the liquid from the lobster. There was only one cracker and one pick fork and they never brought finger bowls, which was always a nice touch. No extra napkins and not even a plate for the shells! We had to put them on the tablecloth!
Took 6 adults for a special dinner/meeting Friday evening and found the food and service to be excellent. We were seated at our own table in a small room, which was quiet so that we could talk. The bar area of the restaurant was energetic in terms of noise. Devon was a perfect place for our dinner/meeting. Many thanks.
GOOD FOOD.I WOULD GO BACK AGAIN
We enjoyed an excellent lunch at Devon Seafood Grill on April 19th. Both the service and the food were outstanding.
Although we weren't greeted immediately by the hostess and didn't receive a real welcoming hello after being seated everything else was outstanding. We had an excellent server and the food was cooked perfect and enjoyable. I had the seared yellow fin tuna medium rare it melted in my mouth. I have been to this restaurant before and I would continue going.
Fresh seafood with great service. We had the Haddock and Barrimundi which both were seared to delightful preparedness. My wife and I shared the two. Our server - Tatiana was such a joy. She even returned a hug from my wife "saying, we hug in the south ( NC ) and Tatiana said "well so do we Brazilians!!! " Great time and such a good selection.
Using online reservations was such a breeze and confirmation number provided to email. We actually got seated early.
We went for lunch and we had a wonderful time. The food was very good, the customer service was excellent and we're definately looking forward to going back.
While lunch is a bargain; dinner is very over priced! Great service though and when I get a seat overlooking the park on a sunny day, everything tastes a bit better!
I had a good dinner. Lobster bisque was the best. Creamy Just right. Tuna tartare was not great I will not have it again. Lobster Mac & cheese just completely Yummy!
The food tasted amazing, and was cooked to perfection. The Service was great, and the management couldn't have done a better job!
Food was amazing! It was cooked and brought to the table very fast. Service staff was incredible. Would go again!
