A great restaurant experience starts with great service. Dente was our waiter and his recommendations were spot on. The food was excellent and you can’t be the location.

I decided to try the bacon cheeseburger w/lobster mac and cheese. I thought it was very good and filling. Would've been nice if I could have ordered the steak that usually comes with the 3-course lunch special but they only had fish - definitely a let down.

The lunch specials are very good choices and plenty of food. We enjoyed salads and mussels. We sat inside and would have had a nice view of Rittenhouse Square if it were not for a truck parked in front of the window. The worst part was the noise from the truck. Nevertheless, I will return again.

Went for my mother’s birthday. Flies were rampant. Dishes were overpriced - even for a seafood spot on Rittenhouse. Felt a bit tourist trap like. Food was mediocre. The whole place could use a revamp.

Devon is a staple in the city but our visit this past Saturday didn't live up to expectations. I put a 3 on service but this in no way reflects on our server. There was a few mistakes that I believe a restaurant of this caliber should not be committing.

First, a food runner came to our table with someone else's food. Not a huge deal and maybe he's still learning or it was his first weekend shift. But then a different food runner with our food went to the wrong table as well.

Again not huge deals in and of themselves, but the lemon served with my oysters was dried out. So it was cut much earlier in the day and then left to sit long enough that it dried.

I also ordered the lobster mac as a side and I saw the server write this down and my dish came out with mashed potatoes. The server possibly keyed in the wrong side on the order in his haste or it was sent out incorrectly. This was quickly rectified but, again, with the above faults, it was a rather jarring experience overall.

The food was excellent and the service was quick but I think there is an issue somewhere if all of the above is happening in one evening

My wife and our friend an myself decided on a last minute dinner plans and what a great choice. Great variety of seafood along with a few meat entrees. Our friend and I had the seared scallop dinner. Nicely done! My wife had the grilled Atlantic Salmon which she thoroughly enjoy. The bread they give you in the beginning is terrific. And service was top notch.

Dined for lunch outside on a beautiful day in early June with my niece. Good experience except for how closely the outside tables and chairs are positioned. Just a tad too close for a great experience.

We made a last minute reservation for 2:30 PM on a Friday after walking for 4 hours around center city and Fairmont Park. Even at this time of day the restaurant on Rittenhouse Square was very busy. They offered a number of attractive lunch options and we chose the $23 3 course special. We each chose the green salad, which was fresh and well seasoned. My friend had the cioppini (mixed seafood) and I had the barbecued salmon with asparagus and broiled fingerling potatoes. Both entrees were very good and sized for lunch. My friend had the berries with sauce anglaise and I had the creme brûlée for dessert. Both were very good. The only issue was the lack of service provide by the waiter, who had a great personality but forgot to bring my drink, spoons for the desserts, etc. He seems otherwise engaged.
