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)....More

Dress varied. We dined pre-theater, therefore we were fashionably dressed. Customers vary in appearance, with some making a statement, while others simply do not care. Play it safe and dress for the city
