 (Washington DC)·Dined 2 days ago

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

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 took a friend for lunch during restaurant week. I had the blackened Mahi mahi and my friend had the 5 oz. steak. She had the bisque and I had a salad. We both loved the food and our server was great. Thanks

Outstanding. We came back for restaurant week following several fabulous Saturday dinners. Warm home baked rolls with sweetened butter! Perfect salmon and grilled asparagus! Fresh Caesar which needed a little more seasoning. Outstanding apples in a crisp and flaky crust with vanilla ice cream! This was amazing!!!

Doug was an excellent server who knew the restaurant inside and out, but also knew his clients. We received impeccable service throughout our dinner. The meal was lovely, though I was disappointed to see New England lobster unavailable — this was due to the restaurant week menu (we had no idea it was restaurant week). That was really a minor issue, as I had the surf and turf; it was served perfectly with a rare filet and a lovely (presumably fresh from frozen) lobster tail. It was delectable (but I love a full steamed Maine lobster most!). Well done, Devon.

I had the worst experience. I had a reservation at 7:30 pm. I was told that it would be a 15 minute wait. However, we were not seated until 30 minutes late but it is resturants week, so that's expected. I had the waitress from hell. She was very dry with no smile at all. She act like she didn't want to be at work. Once we received our food, the asparagus was not good at all. The crab cake was average. I received a phone call from daughter at dinner. While I was on the phone, the waitress came to clear the table. I had a good amount of asparagus left on my plate. Before I could say anything, she grabbed my fork and grabbed my plate without asking was I done. We asked to have our deserts to go. I ordered the apple pie with ice cream. I received my apple pie with no ice cream. I asked the waitress did the apple pie come with ice cream and she told usually they don't give ice cream to go because it melts. I understand that it will melt but let me make that desicion as the customer after paying my money. After paying for our meal, my husband left a generous tip. She came to the table, grabbed the money and check and did not say a word. We said thank you and she said you're welcome. How about saying thank you because we gave you a generous tip. I will never return to this resturant or recommend anyone.

Me and my husband came here for a weekday lunch and encountered multiple issues. First thing was a tiny fly in my water. We ordered same mahi-mahi entrees and somehow my fish was cooked well and his was almost raw. The potatoes and onions in the hash were half cooked on both plates, so I just ate my fish without a side. Fish was very tasty by the way. My husband asked to change his undercooked fish to a steak which came very rare instead of medium rare, but it was served on a very hot plate so he was able to cook pieces of meat right on the plate. We just did not have time to send another dish back and wait. No complains about the staff, our waiter was very attentive and helpful.
It was our first time here and I doubt we will be back...
