Diner Reviews
  • "The food was really good, especially the duck tacos! Our waiter was exceptional, very knowledgeable and friendly. The only downside was the wait for drinks at the bar before dinner. We arrived at the restaurant a 1/2 hr before the reservation so we could have a drink before dinner. We waited 15 minutes for our drinks to be made / served to us. 15 minutes for a gin and tonic is way too long, especially for the amount of people they had working behind the bar vs. the amount of people @ the bar."

  • "Service: we received nice attention from the restaurant owner. He also willingly gave us a complimentary vegetarian version of a dish after some confusion. The waiter had to double check one order and forgot another order. Food: brunch was delicious, everyone liked the dishes. The shrimp and grits was excellent, although it had some extras we weren't expecting (pearl onions). The grilled watermelon salad, collards, and huevos rancheros were excellent. The brunch portions were too small. Noise: the music was too loud and it was difficult to carry on conversation. Ambience: Beautiful."

  • "I've tried a lot of restaurants in Rochester and this is the place that really stands out. The drinks are delicious and the food is well-executed and nicely presented. The waitstaff is well-trained and provides excellent service. By that, I mean service that is warm, inviting, informative and anticipated your needs. Huge thumbs up for this place."

  • "The food was outstanding. Te duck breast with grits and the duck tortillas were particularly good. We ate outside and the service on the whole was quite good but pre- dinner drinks could have been served in a more timely manner and we had eaten a good part of our dinner had been eaten before the glasses of wine, which were ordered when dinner was served, were delivered."

  • "A friend recommended The Revelry for our anniversary dinner. It is amazing! The service was wonderful...our water glasses were never empty and all who visited our table were friendly and helpful. Our waitress was fantastic and had a great knowledge of the menu. I can't say enough about how delicious the food was! Fresh and different! We ordered about 6 different things and it was all amazing! Our favorites were the beet deviled eggs and the fried green tomatoes! I have recommended this restaurant to everyone I talk to! It is definitely worth a visit."

  • "Outstanding food and service at The Revelry mean that I will be a repeat patron. Our server, Dan, was personable and professional and made our visit a great one. The fare was tasty and the varied menu provided for many interesting choices. A brief chat with owner Jenna made the experience even more personal and pleasant. Bravo!"

  • "This was our first time having brunch here! We enjoyed the pecan bun as an appetizer, and the shrimp and grits, and chicken and waffles as meals. The food was great, and it was a beautiful day to be outside. This was a wonderful way to celebrate a 60th birthday for my mother-in-law."

  • "2 days before I visited the Open Table site to make a reservation for 2, was offered 5:45pm or earlier, 8:30pm or later. I took the 5:45pm. Food very good; service great, but several tables vacant throughout the evening and when we left at 7:20pm. Maybe I should have made a phone call for a 6:30pm or 7:30pm table."

  • "We came on a Wednesday night so two of our party had the Chicken and Fixings which was excellent and would have been enough for all four of us. Both the menu and the wine list offered interesting options, including dishes with a Southern flair such as deep-friend quail, and a whole page of local Finger Lakes wines. Service was perfectly timed, attentive but never rushed. We will be back!"

  • "I received a gift card to revelry for my birthday from my sons. We went on a rainy Saturday night. We wanted to sit outside in their patio area but I'm glad we ate inside after all. Everyone was very friendly and our server knew all the questions we asked in regards to the menu. The drinks were amazing. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "The food was fabulous! I read the review in the City paper and it was as good if not better than what I had expected. The service was great and the parking easy. Our server was attentive but not overly so and her timing was right on. I would definitely recommend this as a go to restaurant for great food and terrific service."

  • "Revelry is a place to dine on a warm summer night, since outdoors is delightful and indoors is much too noisy. It was a crowded night with lots of young people enjoying themselves but the indoor din was too much for anyone over 50. Service was quite lovely and food was too."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We have dined here many times since they opened one year ago (6/13) and it keeps getting better. Service is always top notch, the food is always interesting all well prepared. The menu appeals to foodies and also has a hamburger and a few simple things. The mixologist is amazing with all mixes and juices house-made each day. Bonus: Nice parking lot!"

  • "Food was phenomenal! I love scallops and the scallops there were the best I ever had! Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Nice setting and food. I would say that the dessert menu needs a better selection. It's has a southern theme so the should follow with dessert like those wonderful cookies you give everyone should be on the menu to order more, pecan, sweet potatoe pie etc."

  • "Oysters were perfect, cocktails are fun and delicious and dinner/service great. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The specialty drinks are fun and.delicious. The service was very poor. We waited a very long time before we saw our waiter. Then I had to flag another waiter down.to ask for a.glass of wine later. My friend's mac and cheese was not cooked even to al dente and the sauce was uninspired. Bottom line : Go for drinks and.skip the food."

  • "We were there midweek for an anniversary dinner. The bar was busy, and we chose to eat outside because it was still 80 degrees, and the arbor was inviting. Tuesday was Tikki Day so lots of silly cocktails on offer, maybe that's why the crowd seemed so young, which is unusual for a restaurant of this quality, and great to see. Food was good, (my wife's Cobia was better than my scallops), service was excellent, with some great wine suggestions, not too much $$. Would go back in a heartbeat."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "My husband and I visited earlier this week for our anniversary. The bar has a great happy hour atmosphere (The East Ender was awesome...somewhere between a gin and tonic and a mojito). We had the "Chicken n Fixins" for dinner (his choice, not mine...I wanted the quail, but you have to pick your battles) and while I'm generally not a fan of fried chicken, this was outstanding! The sides were great too - unique flavors! One thing to note with this special is everything comes out at once. I think next time I'd ask if they could bring the biscuits first so we have something to snack on while waiting. Our server was on top of things but not a hoverer. If it wasn't raining we would have loved to try to patio. Will definitely be back."

  • "The Revelry never disappoints. Have dined here three times and stopped many times for drinks. The bar is great; the bartenders really know what they are doing. Service is fast and efficient in both dining and bar. The new outdoor seating is a must during great weather. Our server on this recent evening was both personable and efficient with an excellent sense of humor. Her recommendations were on the money and the suggested wine from JR Vineyards was an excellent choice. Inside dining can be a bit noisy but adds to the overall ambiance of the place."

  • "Food was excellent. The scallops were excellent. I thought the Duck appetizer was great, my partner not having ever had duck found it's flavour not to her taste. My greens salad was very fresh and a good mix of lettuces. The Beet salad was a surpsrise to see on a menu and was again well prepared and very tasteful. All of the staff was wonderfull. Everyone was friendly and professional. Just enough attention to our needs but not overwhelming. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I was a little disappointed with the food despite what I had heard. Our food arrived not as hot as I would have liked it. The homemade doughnuts were great and the home made lemonade! Fried green tomato BLT had very little bacon and I was glad I had ordered an extra side of it. Even my coffee (the several cups I had) was served Luke-warm."

  • "the sticky bun was phenomenal, the shrimp and grits were fabulous, but the crab cakes were bland and tasteless. mostly great food but I thought with such a small menu every item would be great. won't be ordering the crab cakes again."

  • " Great time. It was a perfect restaurant for a Father's day dinner. Food was delicious. The waiter's and the server's were always pleasant. Always smiling and they were right there to fill our water glass it seemed like every three minutes. Great service. Will be back soon! Nice job accommodating five people. Thank you for a a really nice experience."

  • "Awesome place to eat! Took my wife for our anniversary, waiter was friendly, attentive and knowledgable. I got the duck which was amazing, the wife got halibut which was a chef special. Fish was slightly undercooked (needed another 45 seconds on the grill) so we sent it back and was done perfectly the second time. They took our appetizer off our bill for the inconvenience and offered us free dessert for our anniversary. They went above and beyond in their customer service and the food was excellent. It is pricey for an every week dining option but for a nice night out you can't beat it! Will definitely be back and will recommend to anyone and everyone."

  • "I went to The Revelry with my girlfriend before we move apart for post-graduate jobs. It was wonderful. I had the Lamb Shank and she got the Scallops. Both were delicious. They offered a quite extensive wine list which was amazing, and the service was top notch. Very friendly staff."

  • "Food review note: we asked for modification of menu ingredients, which may well have made our dishes more tasteless than they would have been; but we found that the sauces were bland and we would not recommend our dinner choices. Lunch was better and there were some unusual menu offerings."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I've been here many times and have had great service. This was the first time I've sat outside and the service was so sloooow. Drinks took forever, the staff brought other tables' food to us 3x. When our dinner finally made it, we had to remind them they forgot the deviled egg apps. BUT they made it all "right" by comp'ing the eggs & coffee. Good people, but outdoors may have put extra strain on the kitchen and staff."

  • "The dinner was delicious, from appetizer to Entree, but pricey. There are other comparable restaurants in Rochester that you can dine at and save money. Ted was our server and he was outstanding!! He made excellent suggestions and was attentive without being annoying. In the future, I would skip dessert. The dessert sounded great, but in the end, was nothing special. "
