This is a gem in Philadelphia. Great service! Amber was nonpretentious, knowledgeable, very attentive and helpful all around (GM Mike should take care of this nice fella).

The restaurant exudes old world charm. There is amazing roof-top stone details throughout. We eat out at lot with our children and we are regular at the Devon. They don't skimp on the seafood ... excellent food quality all around (side note, Devon’s bone in ribeye is better here than the Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak). Their portions are large and yummy that has been good for us for many years as we love sharing).

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for sea foods or steak.. Overall I would recommend this place to everyone. By far the best meal you will have in Philadelphia City.

Our server forgot most everything... we had to request things twice and silverware three times. Food was good but we would not go back. There are so many other seafood places to try why would we go back there if we had a bad experience?

I live in the neighborhood and often stop by Devon for a bite. I have never had a bad meal there. There have been a few (very few) hiccups with service over the many years, but nothing significant. Management is very responsive to customer concerns. I do recommend Devon to both neighbors and friends visiting from out of town.

Great table and prompt service until it got Wednesday busy. Upside down as no rush to leave s pleasant table and company! Wish the lobster came out of the pot a minute sooner, but it was still sweet and good!

We’ve been regular customer at Devon for 7 years, but this meal was a big disappointment. Steak requested medium rare was almost well done. The white wine wasn’t chilled. We sent it back and waited at least 15 minutes for another carafe. That was also room temperature. At which point we just abandoned the request for wine
The wait between the appetizer and the main course was way too long/; the pacing was oddly off.
After one mediocre meal, we’re not giving up on Devon, but another meal like this could be a deal breaker.

Initially I asked for a steak medium well and immediately changed it to medium before the waitress left my table. The steak came out well done. I sent it back. When the steak came out the 2nd time it was medium rare. It was an Oscar filet and the second steak had waaaaaaay less crab meat on top. The manager came over and apologized and took the steak off the bill, but the experience was not what I’ve come to expect at Devon’s. I feel that perhaps because it was a discounted promotional meal, I was not given the same quality service.

The bread/roll was delicious. The cioppino and the steak were both excellent. The salad was overdressed. The waiter was okay. The lattes were cold and took too long.

Went with family to celebrate my birthday because I’ve never had a bad experience until last night (8/12).
The service was slower than usual: The server had to tell us 4 times that our entrees will be coming out shortly.
The lobster bisque was very salty; ate half because that soup was the reason for the visit.
Either the bisque or the crab cakes may have had some sort of contamination because I was the only one who ate them and got sick that required multiple trips to the bathroom.
I’ve had better dining experience there so it was disappointing.

Wonderful meal, great steak with my surf&turf. I go to Devin maybe once a year when I am in Philadelphia for a day trip. Food, ambiance and service were wonderful. Devon has stepped-up its game. It is more than a seafood restaurant.

Devon Seafood and Grill came highly recommended from several friends We had a wonderful time. The food was delicious , the staff was friendly and attentive. Even the manger stopped by to introduce himself and to make sure that we were OK with everything. I would definitely recommend Devon Seafood and Grill and I will definitely be returning.

The lobster specials were wonderfully cooked, the oysters were wonderful too and service overlooking the square was good. The manager has responded kindly to a previous post and made a generous offer that could not be missed. It was good to meet home in person and I know we’ll be back. Thanks Mike and Devon staff!!

Food was delicious! All fresh seafood and fish- we had crab cakes, scallops, alaskan halibut, and some other fish whose name escapes me at the moment. Service was wonderful, restaurant is beautiful, and drinks were flowing! All in all a great night!

Devon’s was great. The food was delicious. The service was good. The restaurant was neat and clean and a modern nice atmosphere Two girlfriends and myself went for lunch on a weekday and you could see they had a lot of regulars coming through. Definitely looking forward to going back.

Hard night for kitchen and staff with mix ups on getting our food right and a long wait. Would have been nice to be comped to appreciate our time. But no. Good is great and service is normally very good. So an anomaly?

Great place to try, atmosphere was a bit noisy and where they sat my wife and I was a condensed disaster. Having to dodge folks with plates and guests bumping your chair every time they get up was annoying. The main course was the best, appetizer was ok but they ruined the order and had to remake it (beyond me why no one these days ever writes anything down) and the dessert was underwhelming also and yet again they had to remake the dessert how do you mess up a dessert. One and done, doubt we’ll be back there again.

I was looking forward to the experience as it came highly recommended. It was a first date night in a while for my spouse and I. The food was definitely not great. The appetizers were sub par, the bread was really really well done. I got the surf and turf. My steak was served cold as if i ordered a rare steak. The only great things were the risotto and the crab cake. Even the drinks were watered down. I normally give restaurants a second chance but at those prices you kinda have to get more than risotto and a crab cake right.

Our service was terrible, the waitresss rolled her eyes when I asked to have a napkin which wasn’t on the table for when my food arrived.

She was rude and it was a terrible experience

So glad I stumbled on this place while searching online for my birthday dinner in Philly. The food was amazing. Service was great. Love the atmosphere. The bar area is super loud, but all that noise disappears in the dining area! Crab cakes are delicious. Highly recommend the surf and turf. They know how to cook a steak as well as perfect seafood.

Food was just okay, server was neglectful and rude (didn’t bring menus or water for 20 min, didn’t refill water or check in after taking orders at all the rest of the dinner, visibly annoyed when we didn’t know what to order the first time he asked).

I feel I was lured w/ a gift certificate I won last year.I called to see if I could split the certificate w/ a co-worker(because I won it at an affair of hers)& was told I could. Fast forward a year later I wasn't able to split it .My daughter,grandson & I were moved3 times before we were partially satisfied(the first booth-like seat was busted & the interior was exposed & it smelled like dead mice in the restaurant)The food & service were excellent but I wouldn't recommend a place I have no intention of returning to
