Devon is a (loud) cavernous, multi level seafood hotspot with quick and attentive service and solid, serviceable but not exceptional seafood. The restaurant is covered floor to ceiling in subway tile (and itself was or resembles a train station and nearly the size of one). Ingredient quality seemed very high and clearly attention is paid to local / sustainable sourcing,... More

Receptionist didn't let us sit in a very rude manner... although many tables were empty After waiting almost half hour and tables still empty they let us finally sit...I regretted it since the food was mediocre and expensive

Went there with colleagues. Before dinner we had few cocktails from the bar....fantastic! I recommend the Moscow Mule or the Eastsider. We then set down and ordered. Wine selection very good. Sea food simply perfect with particular recommendation for the lobster. I cannot comment on the check as I was guest but I presume it was kind of expensive but... More

It's an incredibly fun place to go for a cocktail, to see and be seen, and to hang out on the square, but if you think you are going to get above average food you'll be disappointed. I've been going after work once a month of so for a few years. The food has so gone down hill. Tonight we... More

Located along the main strip of restaurants on rittenhouse square is the Devon. A colleague and I had lunch here on a beautiful day. We sat outside and were quickly seated. They are primarily a seafood spot, however there are other options as well. Whether you are from out of town or from Philly, the food and service is always... More

Sometimes dining alone can be depressing, but I loved my lunch at Devon. My server Jason was very attentive, and the ambiance is top drawer. I had the Arctic Char and a glass of King Estate Pinot Gris. For only having a few short hours in Philly, I was very pleased.

Granted they had just opened, but we waited 10 minutes after being seated and had to ask for a server. Once we got a server, the service was excellent. We both had the mixed seafood grill, which was delicious. The cheddar black pepper biscuits were a nice touch. Would definitely go back.

In Philadelphia for business on a very busy weekend, before the Draft arrived...We dined on a Sunday evening, and when we arrived, the bar was PACKED and LOUD, and that was a little off-putting, however, we were seated in a booth near the kitchen. Thankfully, the booth allowed a bit of privacy and separation from the crowd. (Note: this restaurant... More

We decided we wanted a nice seafood meal while visiting Philly. The front desk staff at our hotel recommended Devon to us. We weren't disappointed. Our appetizer of oysters was very fresh, very good. We both had grilled selections of fresh seafood along with vegetables which were truly excellent. The service was good on a busy Saturday night. Reservations definitely... More

Sitting outside on a warm spring night is hard to beat anywhere. Add great food and a friendly and knowledgeable staff and you will have an even better experience. Our group started with some oysters that were fresh and amazing. Two of us had the NY strip for our entree and it was cooked perfectly. Our waitress and other staff... More
