The food was good, but the restaurant was out of waffles which prevented us from ordering some wanted items off of the menu.

The waitress could have been more, uh, bubbly I guess. Not as friendly as I expect a waitress to be. She wasn’t as attentive and we had to wait quite a while for service. Food was okay. Crab cakes just as expected. Appreciate the no fillings method. Not sure I’ll be back or recommend.

Service was horrible. See review on Yelp earlier today. Waitress was rude and inattentive. Seating was terrible. Reservations seem to be ignored. Not planning on going there again. Wasted romantic surprise for the night of Valentines celebration for my wife and I. Thinking of a way to make it up to her

We waited 1 hour to be seated with our reservation. Manager comp’d our appetizers and bottle of wine, but the wait messed up our other plans for the evening as we rented a limo and had to pay the driver for an addition hour.

The complementary bread was a bit over cooked. The seafood chowder consistency and taste had the value of canned chowder. My wine had a bug it in, the waiter apologized and gave me another and that glass had a larger bug in it. The entrees were great. However, for this class of a restaurant my expectations superseded the actual experience.

Great for, great service but was extremely hot in the restaurant. We were all sweating and couldn't wait to get fresh air. I think it was just the section we were in which was In the back. Everything else was great

The Valentine’s Day special was delicious and just the right amount of food for the price. Our waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and polite. Despite the large number people the service still outstanding.

The food was nothing special. I had seared tuna, rare on the inside...even so it was undercooked and arrived cold. The bread buns (which i dont normally eat) were fantastic-fresh from the oven, all crust no podge inside.

For my Birthday, Feb 14th, the staff went out their way to find me a table after I was late for reserved seats. The waiter was on point and had our drinks and food out quickly. The lobster was a bit chewy but the food overall was beyond my expectations. So good! Carrot cake month watering. Thanks Devons for having me, late and all. I will be returning as well as inviting friends to check it out.

Their famous crab cakes tasted fishy. I didn't like the presentation of the food. My steak was good but my mash potatoes were bland and the asparagus undercooked.

It was noisy. The bar is right there. For the prices they charged, it wasn't worth it. The food was good but not spectacular. Salmon on a salad. Not very inventive.

Devon's crab cakes are excellent but this time I tried the scallops and that was pretty awesome as well. The servers are customer service plus and even the greeter was very welcoming. I definitely would and have recommended Devon to others.

Date night with the husband was good. We started out with the crab cakes and Vietnamese spring rolls. They were good. He had the Seafood mixed grill and I had the ribeye with lobster tail. Overall the was good, a bit pricey but it’s Center City. We’ll return.

Very good place to stop. Food is well prepared and tasty. They listened to our requests for adjustments to the spicing and our entrees came out perfect. Definitely not inexpensive, but if you need an unquestionably good meal - birthday or other celebration - Devon is a great option.

Here for brunch. Food was mediocre at best. This used to be a go to favorite spot for me. Not sure if recipes/chef have changed but it’s just not as good as it used to be.

We ordered the surf and turf; our meals were $62 and $68 dollars. We have had much better filet minon's at other restaurants. The lobster was chewy as well. The waitress was not on top of her game for such a restaurant. There are too many other restaurants near by that I am sure are much better.

We tried Devon seafood grill for the first time as an early dinner before a show. Our server was happy to offer menu recommendations. The fresh from the oven rolls were light and flavorful. The crab cakes appetizer was packed with crab. My beet salad with pistachio drizzle was just ok. ~~The seared tuna served with asparagus and Parmesan potatoes was very high quality. Dessert (chocolate peanut butter torte) was just ok. Server offered a refill of our coffee and then never brought any.
