Such a lovely time start to finish. The host Amber was so friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious! Our waiter was the best Eagles fan ever. And Issac took out photo for us and was a great addition to the ambiance.

My friend and I came here for restaurant week. It was our first time here but we were impressed by the decor and atmosphere. We both ordered the lobster bisque, mahi mahi and chocolate mousse. The food was delicious and well worth a visit.

our dining experience was great up until it was time for pay for our food. My friend and I was trying to decide on how to pay for the food, and we decided it would be best to write down the last 4 digits of our payment method and the amount we owe. However, when I was trying to explain to the waitress, she cut me off and just left. Instead, she came back with 2 separate checks. We were unimpressed by how she treated us in the end, which did leave a bad impression.

I completed the survey online, explaining my experience at the restaurant. The next day, the manager called me and wanted to know what went wrong. She was very apologetic and understanding.

overall, the dining experience was good, and I will be sure to be back.

I forgot it was Restaurant Week when I decided to go to Devon. Their Restaurant Week lunch menu was excellent with 3 appetizer choices, 3 entree choices, and 2 dessert choices. I had a very good salad with cranberries, pine nuts, and feta. The grilled salmon with mashed potatoes and asparagus was excellent. The chocolate mousse cake was great--not too big and not too sweet. Devon is always a reliable place to dine.

Arrived a few minutes late for our reservation, however I was seated at my table as soon as I arrived. My friend had already arrived and was waiting for me. We both enjoyed our meals which were excellent. As far as the service is concerned it was excellent, our hostess and especially our waiter were off the chart. Thank you, we will return.

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

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.
