I was in Philly for business and try this restaurant at the bar. I took a tuna and salad. Tuna was very fresh with good sauce. Service was just ok . Good vibe and ambiance front of the Rittenhouse Square.

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...More
