  • "My first time here was June 24. I didnt write a review that visit ( never written a review in my life)this is my 1st. Our planned BBQ plans changed due to the rain. Went to Revel Restaurant(all 15 of us, with no resveration)The place was very busy and the staff was running around. Had great food & drinks. Kudos for the delicious short ribs, octopus & brussels sprouts.Loved the bananna nutella.We had a great time, great service and great food. One of the reasons I am writting this is because our waitress was trying super hard to please our large loud table along with the many other tables she had . I believe they were either short staff or just didnt expect the place to be completely full on 4th of July. Either way, we are happy customers"

  • "The food was, for the most part, interesting and well prepared but there was too much salt on a number of the dishes. An exception was the Brussels sprouts, which are as good as all the reviews say. Service was very friendly and accommodating, but a little amateurish. A few examples: wine, requested to be served with our entrees, arrived and was opened before we got our cocktails; a steak knife had to be asked for; and two of the orders requested with minor changes were screwed up, including a burger ordered with only a little cheese that came with none at all. All of the mistakes were quickly and courteously fixed, though. This would have been a solid 4 star were it not for the salt and the service lapses."

  • "My 2nd dinner in a few weeks at Revel & I have to say that this place is really growing on me. The food, service & ambiance make for a great combination. The timing and taste of the food has been perfect & the staff knows when to be at your table and when not to be. I've had both the grill octopus & wedge salad for starters and they were great. I've had the short ribs & osso Bucco for entrees and they were excellent too. Jim & Francine are wonderful hosts. Will definitely be back soon."

  • "Service was bad. Orders were confused. Cutlery and glasses were filthy and returned several times. Did our server ever apologize? No. Have you ever heard of paella without rice? Well they served it here. Corn and peas substituted for rice. There was no chorizo or other meat. Instead an odd piece of salmon that obviously was frozen and wasn't seasoned was laid on top. Other substitutions were made to other dishes but we had no notice until we discovered it in front of us. Every dish was poorly seasoned. We had read reviews stating dessert was good. None of the advertised offerings was available. The only desserts were ice creams and mousses which was odd."

  • "The roasted brussels sprouts Bronzino and gelato were delicious. The service was great I've been there twice and have recommended the place to my friends. Will definitely be back"

  • "Great food, excellent service with a nice selection of wine. We shared the porterhouse, which was excellent. The atmosphere was nice and inviting too. I think we'll come back to watch the next BIG game on their large screen."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Wow, again. Great food choices, excellent service and slick decor. 5 of us each had a different app and entree. Salads were crisp, soup was very good with good taste and velvety texture. Short ribs, swordfish, hangar steak all good, but gnudi and another pasta dish with lamb ragu were outstanding. Sorry, no room for dessert. Chardonnay from Argentina was buttery and oaky. Loved it!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Food was bland and lacked flavor. Appetizers and drinks were the best part of the meal. I would recommend this place if that's all you're looking for. "
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Attentive service, good food. I had a salad, which I asked to be chopped. Salad arrived, not chopped. I brought it to the Server's attention and he brought it back chopped. would rccomend and would like to come back for dinner."

  • "Been to this place a few times and the food was good. Went here recently with a good friend who'd never been. To get to the point, my meal tasted like a salt block; the spinach side was bordering salty too. My friend's dish was a tad spicy and it was a dish I recommended. I was a bit embarrassed. Then to top off the night, the waiter over priced my meal. I was able to get a refund, which was a few cents off-I mean, I was already overcharged and had paid tax on it. The least the manger could have done was to refund the correct amount. "

  • "I was at Revel for lunch on Friday May 9 For lunch. I ordered the lunch specials: sweet corn soup ( amazing) and crab tostadas (even better) My coworker also had soup and a steak dish ( not sure the name) and said it was best lunch they had this year ! By coincidence, my family booked Mother's Day there also. I was pleased that I was just as happy with food and service as on Friday. Table favotites were : Brussel sprouts with cherries, herbs & cheese. Swordfish & artichokes , and angus prime filet. Also loved the lemon baked potatoes. Love the decor and vibe at Revel. Food was great and I will go back but next time would like to sit at the outside tables. "

  • "Revel has a very nice upscale ambience throughout the whole restaurant. My friend and I came here for restaurant week but we came early at 5pm after work so it was quiet. We had Japanese Eggplant Caponata and Butternut Squash Soup which both were pretty good. Main entrees includes Spaghettini Cacio E Pepe and Herb Roasted Amish Chicken Breast which both were average, nothing so spectacular. Our desserts includes Banana Nutella Gelato which was alright and Cheesecake Creme Brûlée which was interesting. Overall the food was nothing to rave so much about but we would go back for a light dinner if needed to. But the bar area definitely looks like a great place for happy hour or a night out."

  • "Went for dinner on Sunday night during restaurant week. Were seated promptly as the restaurant was empty. Had to ask for the restaurant week menu as the server only gave us the regular menu. Once we started ordering, they did not have the appetizer, entree and dessert that I ordered. The server had no clue and the manager on duty was not helpful at all. I was forced to order a filet from the a la carte menu which was excellent I must say. I rate the restaurant fair due to its not having anything on the special menu and forcing guests to order from the regular menu. Service and attitude leaves a lot to be desired. "

  • "We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and so was the service and atmosphere."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The whole experience was a joke! Four of us in the party. The waiter was bouncing between two rooms. I had to flag down the hostess when my husband's appetizer did not come to the table, it was a mere salad! The entree's arrived and my husband's salmon had to be sent back because it was raw. Again, had to flag down the "hostess" to have it cooked. My friend & I had the hanger steak (tasted like liver) with fries and salad that dominated the plate. A manager came over & asked why I didn't eat the steak, and I told her. She said No One has ever complained before, I told her to ask my friend who felt the same way. The manager took my dinner off the bill. At dessert, no one offered coffee or tea! Waste of time when there are other great places!"

  • "First and last time at this restaurant. Extremely noisy (though it was a very crowded bar and the Kentucky Derby was o TV), but why they sat us there when the rest of the restaurant was empty is beyond me. Food was okay but nothing to write home about."

  • "We went to Revel during restaurant week on LI. Revel was a GEM!!!! Our waiter Mike was perfect. You couldn't ask for better! The food was the star!!! We ordered from the restaurant week menu and the choices were imaginative, provocative, and perfectly prepared! The appetizer of grilled octopus was delicious beyond description! The entrée of pan-seared sea bass was moist and flaky and perfectly seasoned. The only drawback that I could find was the décor. It was very, very industrial which translates into EXTREMELY noisy when crowded. The hard surfaces carries sound and amplifies it to levels that would make pleasant dining nearly impossible. Stay away when crowded, otherwise ENJOY!"

  • "Took our staff for lunch. Quickly seated. Drink orders filled and maintained. Service was great but food takes forever to come out and it wasn't that crowded. And it's always weird that a salad comes out last among a number of lunch orders....Good food and i enjoy the menu..Just wish the kitchen was quicker!"

  • "I had been eager to try this new resturant. I had heard some mixed reviews but went in with an open mind. The venue itself is very nice inside. Has a vibe of a chic lounge. Unfortunately they were out of the wine I ordered and that was the first of many disappointments. From the bread on the table to appetizer and dinner the food was really awful! I am a bit of a foodie so this was really a let down. After spending $130 between myself and my husband I came home and had a bowl of cereal. I will def not be back. "

  • "Disappointing. There was an overwhelming aroma in the air similar to a spa, very fragrance like - not conducive to eating that hit us upon entry. Kind of a turn off. We were only offered a seat in the noisy bar area but there was clearly an entire whole space to the restaurant that was away from the bar where it would be much more quiet. We decided to have a glass of wine. TWO of the wines by the glass they were out of. The first we were informed of right away and the second one the waiter came back after leaving with our order and told us there was none "left". I thought perhaps they would offer us a glass on the house but no such luck. The appetizer was overwhelmingly salty. I left feeling very let down."

  • "The restaurant is gorgeous. Reminds you of an upscale lounge in the city. However, the good stops there. The service was not great at all. Took forever in between each course. The waitress seemed like she could care less to be there. Didn't smile once or ask how our dinner was going. The food was so bland. I have never tasted a steak and potatoes that had no flavor like this food did. Will definitely not be going back to this restaurant."

  • "The ambiance and design of Revel is very nice. Maybe if you want to grab a drink at the bar this is a good place. Food was not great. Very bland (they even put salt on the tables, thats how bland it is). Menu options have some strange pairings. I had a brussel sprout appetizer that was undercooked and had no flavor. Fried calamari was good. For dinner I had a crab encrusted halibut that sounded delish but was over cooked. The only good part of dinner was the wine and desert. Service was also lacking. I had to repeatedly request for my water to be refilled. Sorry Revel, I wanted to like you!"

  • "We took our very close friends from Bayside for the first time on the 15th of April , and they just loved the place And we found them at the bar before we came , and they commented they loved the prices and drinks at the bar Before we eat. Then we eat and they just loved their dinners and the wine we ordered, please keep,up,the good work."

  • "Went out with friends and the atmosphere was very nice but extremely noisy . I wanted to like this place but the food was a problem. The crab cake appetizer came out warm to cool and was returned with another one being mildly warm but certainly not hot. The waitress was very nice and apologized while the manager came over and again apologized and removed it from the bill. I had the pork osso boco which was dry and had no flavor. A friend had Bronzino which was bland . The rib eye was very nice and extremely large and the tagliatelle with crab meat was good. In all the service was attentive but the food was below par for a restaurant asking the prices that the do."

  • "Confusion at desk about where to sit us, which lasted for an uncomfortable ten minutes. Food was served prior to cocktails, which were a total disappointment. After I told the server how bad my drink was i was still charged for it. Server forgot the water I asked for, he kept going outside to parking lot. Beautiful restaurant, but too expensive for lousy service."

  • "I can't believe it took me so long to find this great restaurant. (Been open since September) The first time I was at Revel was for lunch and it was fabulous from food to service to ambience. I was so happy I came back the same week for dinner with my husband. We loved the grilled octopus . My husband had the NY strip with the Revel sauce and I had the Alaskan King Salmon. Like my first visit , everything was so wonderful that we made reservations for our family to eat there on Easter Sunday . Great wine list too!"
