The food and service were
The food and service were great, excellent selection and the staff was helpful. The space was a little tight and the atmosphere was a little loud but that's not a deal breaker. Overall I was satisfied and will be back.

This was my second time visiting
This was my second time visiting Revolucion. Service was a little slow, but the overall experience was very good. (Maybe the waiter was overloaded, who knows?) The food and drinks were spot on and quite delicious. I am very happy they opened this gem in Lakeview. I live close by, so I will definitely be back.

The food was amazing! Our
The food was amazing! Our waitress recommended two of their most popular dishes to try and they were both very delicious!
The Tres leche cake was the best I have ever had!
Revolucion has definitely made my list of favorite neighborhood restaurants!

The food was outstanding.
The food was outstanding. Was not disappointed. The service was fantastic by Sarah (she was training Gregory) and she was extremely knowledgable about her tequila and very helpful. The only thing not "ticked" in the food box was the garlic bread was not brought to the table with the meal. Had to ask for it. When brought, it was kind of like "what does not belong on this table? It was HORRID. Dry and tasteless. Just take it away and off the menu. Everything else was fabulous. Steaks were rarer than expected (to one in the party) but extremely flavorful. Family w/ 3 children was seated next to us about 1/2 way through the dinner, basically ruining any illusion of romance. Very loud atmosphere.

Since this opened a few months
Since this opened a few months ago, I have brought all my friends here. They have returned since then without me!
The atmosphere is very "city merges with neighborhood".
The service has always been perfect. No hovering, no ignoring...
Their traditional guacamole is to die for.

Love this place!
So glad this place opened up - it has a great menu and amazing drinks!

Well priced and tasty bruch with an obvious Mexican tilt. The best part is that the take reservations for brunch. Avoid the lines and head for this neighborhood gem.

Unique Mexican Food
My parents and I went to Revolucion on their last visit and had a blast! The ambiance alone is so different. I love the night sky painted on the ceiling complete with lights to represent stars as well as the overall design, it transports you to another place for sure. The original guacamole is some of the best my parents and I have ever had... creamy with a hint of heat. The homemade chips that came with the guac really added to the appetizer. I cannot recommend the Camerones Ajillo dish highly enough, it is so different from anything else i have ever had with the garlic and peppery heat combining into a creative combination. My dad ordered the Alambres dish and loved it so much he wouldn't share with the rest of us.

Always wonderful. Great food and how did they aquire and train such a fantastic staff. A very professionally run and fun place!

Eclectic food choices
I had looked at the menu prior to meeting my friends at the restaurant and I was surprised at the many choices. My friends and I stuck to Mexican part of the menu and had delicious guacamole and four different kinds of tacos which we shared. (and also ordered four different drinks --not shared -- but the guests liked the way the drinks were made). Service was great - it seemed that your servers and bussers did whatever was needed when tables needed clearing or water glasses needed refilling.
Great place and the late night hour appealled to me although my group was there for an early dinner.

New favorite Mexican restaurant!
We have been by this place numerous times since they opened about a year ago & finally decided to dine there...outside on the Broadway side. It is an excellent spot, from the superb carne asada to the very friendly service, the vibrant indoor space and the entertaining "scenery" on Broadway. Another big differentiator from other Mexican restaurants is the wine list too. Highly recommended. We're becoming regulars.

Good Mexican food
We love Revolucion. It's easily the best Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood. Definitely make a reservation. You'll get in, but if you just show up you might end up waiting a while. Drinks are great; the sangria is particularly tasty. Service can be hit or miss though. Most servers are great but we've had one or two who are a little slow.

Great food & service
Food and service were great. Had a few colleagues and friends with me, and we all had a good time. Food arrives in just the right amount of time with good temperature, and everything tastes great.

Best Mexican Food in Lakeview
This was the third time I have eaten at Revolucion since I discovered it about three months ago. It is without question THE BEST Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood. While other places seem to buying their ingredients from the same supplier and preparing the food in the same unimaginative way, Revolucion has a much more refined take on Mexican. The house-made guacamole is not to be missed. The corn soup was absolutely amazing. Margaritas are good.I've not had a dish yet that I didn't like. It is much more expensive than the other local Mexican eateries but is well worth it in my opinion.

Perfect amount of seasoning
I don't like salty food and some Mexican restaurants add too much salt. This food is seasoned so well and the short ribs are the best I've ever had.

Food was good
Atmospheres was energetic
Impressed with chef visit twice to make sure everything was to your satisfaction

I brought 4 of my friends to Revolucion Steakhouse because my 4 visits prior was so terrific.
They have a very nice wine list with very moderately priced wines.
As far as appetizers go, you must try the stuffed mushrooms. Excellent!
The steaks are amazing as well as the many rubs, sauces, and crusts. I personally think the steak is so well seasoned
That it doesn't even need any sauces or crusts.
Plus, the Chipotle Mashed Potatoes are to die for.
My friends really enjoyed themselves and I know they will be back!
Myself, this is my favorite steak place! You must try it.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and food, those mushrooms as appetizers were good...Since I walked in I allready knew it was going to be a great experience for me and my bf since we were celebrating his birthday.we decided to have something different and pretty far from than staying around the southside, He had a great time.I would recommend it to my friends

Upscale Mexican Food
I had a very enjoyable birthday celebration at Revolucion. Food was very good, with lots of choices - ceviche was delicious, I did a combo (skirt steak-tender and tasty & stuffed chili pepper), my husband had stuffed mushrooms and shrimp dish, which he enjoyed. Reasonably price wine. The only disappointment was the House Salad. It was just kind of bland, and we did not really eat it. I would definitely go back.

Great Lunch Before Cubs game
Excellent service, really good food. If only we had stayed and had a few more drinks instead of going to the game!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Try the chicken fajitas, they were amazing. I had the leftovers the day after our dinner and they may have been even better than the dinner.
This restaurant has good outdoor seating options that make it even better.

Despite our change of reservation
Despite our change of reservation times twice, they still accommodated our party of 5. They were very nice. That made the whole evening. Sitting outside was a bonus!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the second time I've been to Revolucion, and I have NOT been disappointed either time! The server, though new, was very knowledgable and friendly. She always made sure we had everything we needed. The chef, or at least someone from the kitchen, came by to check and make sure our food was cooked to our liking. The wine was fantastic- as was the margarita that my dining partner had! LOVE this place and will definitely return!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Food was just delicious.
The service by Samantha was just perfect. Great smile, very friendly as were most of the staff. We ordered a lot of food and drinks and the courses were presented to us only after we finished each course. The food prices are on the high end. $52 for lamp chops and $32 for a 10 oz Filet Mignon but it did come with salad and a side dish. I have been there twice and the food and service is wonderful.

We're from Houston and have experienced lots of good (and not so good) Mexican food. Revolucion would be a big hit in Houston!

Great neighborhood Find
Not only was the food amazing, they have an impressive beer list! Roughly 20 draft selections and not your "normal" craft beer choices. Also several limited release beers as well. Service was attentive, & accommodating ( they poured me the wrong beer, let us keep the wrong one -no charge- & corrected the error). The flavors in the food were incredible combos, & everything was so fresh!

A new favorite place when traveling to Chicago... Fantastic Service from all.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good, but could be great
A nice selection and reasonably priced menu - though the print is so small and the lighting so low the waitstaff carry flashlights to help the diners read the pages -- management may want to consider a redesigned -- and more readable -- menu. As it stands, it's an awkward start for the diner to rely on the staff holding a flashlight to the menu, no? Also, the heavy binding makes it awkward to hold. Once past that, the service is attentive, the portions large and well presented.
The bar list is impressive, with huge selections of wine, beers, tequilas, etc.
In all, it's a nice choice, for good, reasonably priced dining.

I've been here late-night for drinks before and they were really good. I decided to come here for dinner over the weekend and it was fantastic. The place had a great ambiance and most of the tables were full at 9pm. We had the cucumber jalapeno margarita and the cadillac margarita (both of which I've had before) and they were tasty. We ordered steaks, chicken fajitas, and guacamole and the food was very good. I will come again.

Great food and service with a smile
My group of six really enjoyed dining on a Satuday night at Revolucion. We all had different entrees ranging from steak to tilapia to fajitas and all enjoyed our dishes. The server was funny, friendly and accessible. My only complaint was that one couple in our party didn't care for their chocolate dessert which was served very cold with dense frosting and they were not offered an alternative or to have the cake heated. The ambience was nice, however, it was sooooo dark that we all had to get out our iPhones to read the menu. We all appreciated the nice touch of having the Manager stop by to say hello at the beginning of our meal. I would definitely go back!
