Diner Reviews
  • "We started with the Calamari Al Ajillo which was over done and rubbery. Next was the Taquiza Revolucion Polio which tasted burnt. We finished with the grilled veggy fajitas which were wonderful. This is not high on my places to return to."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Four of us went on a Saturday night and no one ordered a steak. Everything was excellent, but the guacomole, mushroom tacos, calamari and margeritas were big hits. Great service too."

  • "We've been back to this restaurant several times. Food has always been great. Wish I could remember our servers name as he was excellent."

  • "Great in every way... and I am a bit picky about service and ambiance. It far exceeded my expectations!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Mediocre ill prepared food and sketchy service that was quite slow. Steaks weren't cooked correctly and when one got sent back to go from rare to medium they microwaved it. Citrus vinaigrette was tasteless. Threatened to not bring our salads until we sacrificed our shared appetizer. WTF? Then the salads came out 10 minutes apart."

  • "Food was pretty good and had some decent lunch options with reasonable prices. Nothing special but solid."

  • "Revolucion is one of our favorite spots in the neighborhood. We are never disappointed here and recommend it often to our friends."

  • "My food was great! My waiter was very inconsistent."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This was a nice restaurant for lunch or brunch but I wouldn't suggest for dinner. I order a filet mignon and the meat was overcooked.. Never complained because our waitress was MIA most of the time. She barely checked on us and never asked how the food was. I was done eating by the time she came back. "

  • "Dinner was fantastic; server was patient and friendly and really took her time with us. We sat outside and that made it more fun (and quiet). Our only issue was we had a diner with dietary issues and I called ahead to check on options and preparations. When we got there they informed us that they could not accommodate us (they made the comment that the chef said "I'm too busy to cut the vegetables tonight"!!). but they were very apologetic and tried to help. My sister had to have 2 salads (since all the veggies are marinated in something she can't eat) and was a little disappointed. but again, they were apologetic and checked back on us several times. I'll just have to remember not to eat there if I'm people who need more options. "

  • "Isn't normally something I wouldn't consider, but it looked cool so I thought I would try it. We had four people, the salsas were delicious, guac was delicious, the menu was great with lots of options. Everyone at the table ordered variations of typical mexican fare, but I had to try the Steak. The steak was not Steakhouse worthy, but very good. I had to try the steak to see if it was legit, but I wish I ordered one of the many delicious looking items on the menu. "

  • "The space is beautifully done. It was vibrant the night we were there. The guacamole was excellent. However, the drinks and entrees left a little to be desired. With all the places to go for Mexican themed food in the city, this place doesn't rank high enough to warrant my return."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Every aspect of our dining experience was wonderful...until the end. Our waiter was nowhere to be found. We waited several minutes and, finally, walked to the hostess lectern and paid our bill. Advice: Don't forget about your customers, even after all the serving is completed."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I have been wishing for a long time for food fashion to revolve back to rediscovering the Chicago neighborhood steakhouse whose quality was above Ronnies and whose prices were below Morton's. El Mariachi's newest venture, Revolucion Steakhouse, almost fulfill's this fantasy. My Angus steak was well-prepared and appealingly presented. My red meat avoiding wife said her tilapia was excellent and cleverly prepared. However, the drinks left a lot to be desired. Harkening back to our visit to Hugo's, a high-end Mexican restaurant in Houston, we ordered blackberry mojitos but they were too sweet. We weren't expecting the Hugos concoction made with fresh mint and blackberries mulled into the agave syrup & rum, what we got was undrinkable."

  • "I had the Bone-in Ribeye, and the seasoning on it was delicious and cooked perfectly. The chipotle mashed are excellent as well. My date had the short ribs with potatoes lyonaise, and they were both delicious. Good selection of wines as well. Highly recommeneded."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "My partner and I have been here a couple different times and every time we had a great experience. The waitress was amazing and helped us select some great wines, the food was delicious and out in a timel manner and the atmosphere is warm and inviting!"

  • "I made a reservation for 7:15 and while it was honored, we were sat at a bar table in the bar area. Already off to a poor start, in my opinion. The waiter - Walter - was impersonal at best. Never smiled, seemingly uninterested and frankly, a bit arrogant. We ordered the taco sharing plates, the vegetarian and the barbacoa. The steak was dry and flavorless. We also ordered the shrimp bisque to share. Thank goodness we did because we couldn't taste anything other than the salt. Not good. What saved the night was the overall ambiance and the delicious margaritas. Probably wouldn't go back simply because this is Chicago and there are so many other options. But it wasn't horrible."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food was great, if I had to make a complaint it would be that I had too much food. I ordered an extra side to try and was way more than needed. Normally I'd wrap up food to go but we were going out after dinner. I finished just about half my entree and extra side. Everything was reasonably priced and our waitress was excellent. We ordered a bottle of wine that they were out of so they let us sample a few similar bottles before making a choice. One thing that everyone may not enjoy, it was Valentine's Day and they weren't shuffling us out. The whole dinner took just under 2 hours which was nice that we were able to talk and enjoy our bottle of wine at our leisure."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Thank you for helping to make a memorable Valentines Day! The restaurant, food, drink, and service were out of this world! Can't wait to go back again!"

  • "The shrimp tacos were amazing. The staff was super friendly and nice, offered great choices on the menu. FIlet was great with the Chipotle mashed potatoes. Definitely recommend the chile pasilla sauce. Great selection of steaks and Mexican fare. Coming back soon for sure - would be great for a group."

  • "We were one of only two tables, which was perfect as we were there to book one of the private rooms for an upcoming event. Food was great, and the server Sam was very attentive. Booking our event with Nate was a BREEZE!"

  • "Took my boyfriend here for his 23rd birthday dinner. Great spot that neither of us had been to before! Great decor that gives contributes to an authentic Mexican feel. The ceiling is painted as a sky with glow in the dark stars...which I absolutely loved!. He got steak tacos, which he was crazy about! I got chiles chiles rellanos which were fabulous! Try the sangria! It's bomb & served in a huge glass fit for a conquistador. The service was great, water was constantly refilled for us and our food and drink were served exceptionally fast! Recommened trying this spot! I'd definitely go back!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and really wanted to like the food too. It was okay but very overpriced. We got tacos and the meat was dry...no salsa or cheese. How can you have a taco with no cheese or salsa? To make things worse, the service was terrible. As soon as the waiter realized we were not ordering drinks with our meal, we were basically ignored. It took us a half hour toget our check even while staring down and flagging our waiter. Finally a busboy stopped to help us out. I doubt we will be back."

  • "I came here for brunch on a whim. There was no wait and the food and drinks are amazing. The service was awesome. I will definitely be back. The dinner here is really great as well."

  • "Revolucion is a fabulous alternative to those overly high-priced downtown steakhouses. We were a party of four, and each one of us loved our dish. Meat was tender and well-prepared…and AFFORDABLE. Highly recommended"

  • "The staff was attentive, friendly and knowledgable. Great selection of wine. I had the bleu cheese steak and it was perfect. Cooked exactly the way it should be. Stuffed mushrooms were a fantastic appetizer."

  • "Fortunate enough to find this place on Open Table tonight. Maybe 10 minutes from our rez in Lincoln Park. Tasty, tasty eats. Wife wanted a good steak without going to the loop. We both had that plus Mexican fare. Good selection of food - something for everyone in your party. Will be new place for us to go, and we are tickled."

  • "My boyfriend and I visited Revolucion for new years eve dinner. We both ordered the chicken off of the price fixed menu. The salad, chicken and dessert were all really good and we felt like we got a great value for the price. We also ordered margaritas (mango & strawberry), both were delicious! The only "downside" of the night was getting seated in high tables in the middle of the main area. It would have been nice to have a more private dining experience, but sometimes that's how it goes. As with prior visits, the owner of the restaurant came over to the table to make sure everything was going well. Looking forward to my next visit!"

  • "I brought my friend here for his birthday. He had not ever been to Revolucion Steakhouse. As usual, the food and service was excellent! the wine is resonably priced. And the steaks are delicious. Also, the stuffed mushrooms appetizer is to die for. This is my favorite Steakhouse in Chicago."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
