    But it was cold :( There was a few big group tables to serve, so maybe that's why. It seemed like it took forever

    Really great looking restaurant, with fantastic vibe. The menu has lots of interesting things on it - devilled eggs as an appie! The drink menu was fun as well. It was quite busy, and possibly a bit understaffed. While our waitress was fine enough, she was very rushed, so she wasn't able to add much to the experience, and we waited quite a long time for the bill. Overall, it was good, and would recommend it to others.

    The food was "ok" - they could probably take some lessons from La Taqueria on their tacos...

    This is a fabulous spot for service second to none! You are treated like a welcome guest in the proprietor's own home. Live music will get your toes tapping and any number of guests will be invited up to song/play. What a wonderful neighbourhood gem!

    Staffs are friendly. Foods and drinks are great. But the desert can be better. The band is also great. We enjoyed our dining at Revel Room. :)

    The food and drinks are great, and the live music is fantastic. It's a bit dark, though.

    One of the best places to eat in Gastown, with fantastic Southern flavours and outstanding mixologists. Thursday is your best bet if you want quiet - but why would you when you can go Sunday through Wednesday and hear some terrific live music. (The Revellers - on Wednesday nights - feature the Revel's owner, Dennis Brock, on vocals, sounding like a young Elvis or Carl Perkins.) The servers may look like hipsters, but they are definitely not slackers. The bartenders will mix you a mean Sazerac or Mint Julep - or one of their own signature drinks. The prices are reasonable, especially considering both how good the food is, and the portions are generous. You can easily get by with appies, but the mains are worth every cent. Great burgers, too!

    I had my husband's birthday dinner there Saturday night for 11 people. We were able to bring in our own cake without paying a plating fee. Appies are also very reasonable so I ordered 5 for the group just to get us started. My only complaint was that the service was a little slow as it was very busy and a couple of the orders got mixed up. However, staff was super friendly and the food was excellent, especially for the price. I would definitely go back!

    Booked reso the day before for 7 people on Friday, no problem. Sat right away. Restaurant was trendy. Got very busy and noisy on the main floor, not sure how upstairs was. Ordered blackened Ahi tacos, delish! Tried the drink roulette, great concept and was happy with how my drink turned out. Server was attentive, although appeared overwhelmed towards the end (area got very busy). Happy with overall experience, would go again.

    It is our opinion food was a complete letdown, service was very good, and ambience was good as well. We are certain none of our friends that work in downtown would be interested in visiting an establishment such as this. thank you

    The food was good, the drinks were GREAT, but the service ruined it all. The hostess/floor manager was nice and warm enough but our server was rude and ineffective. There are so many choices of restaurants out there and in the future I will not be choosing this one.
