Somewhat inconsistent with food. Was there in October and food was great. This time some of the stuffed shrimp were over salted, and the stuffed mushrooms were bland (couldn't really taste the crab). Service was very good though and nice cozy atmosphere in the room w/ two fireplaces.

We went for New Years Eve, as we have done in the past. The wait was short...15-20min.
We had a drink at the bar..lovely setting.
Food was good...not a limited menu as some restaurants do on holidays.
Service was good, especially given that tables were turning over with no breaks for the
Servers in between.

I was very excited to try this restaurant especially after reading the menu. However all the the food was expensive and very bland. My steak even though medium rare still managed to be dry. My crab cakes had absolutely no flavor whatsoever... Even though they were cooked to perfection. I need flavor to excite me. Our server did not even bother to mention any of the specials for that evening and I learned about them only after overhearing another server telling her table and by that point I had already ordered. We ordered Long island iced tea and nuts and berries. The long island iced tea had way too much sour in it and you could barely taste anything else. My drink tasted like nothing but creamer (an ingredient in the drink). Which was very disappointing to me since this was a high end place. The place was almost too quiet... Like everyone was bored. The building was very cold. But maybe this had to do with the fact that we were sat right next to a window and you could literally feel gushes of wind coming in through the window. It's December!!! It was awful. I didn't feel at all that our experience was worth what we paid or the special trip. Disappointed to say the least

Steak was charburned and I should have sent it back but was with friends and didn’t want to make a scene. Turned out to be a very expensive steak that should have never been served.

Tenderloin tips were tough, scallops rubbery, and brownie in parfait seemed stale. Very disappointed, we were celebrating my wife's 70th with family and the meal in general wasn't up to par with others I've had there.

We found the Historic Revere Tavern on Open Table when looking for places to eat near the American Music Theatre. We are so happy we did. We've been back several times. The food is so good. The atmosphere is so nice too.

Revere Tavern is one of my favorite places to go, mostly on special occasions.
I was disappointed that the creme puff was taken off the dessert menu. That was the best dessert I have ever had.
Your filet cannot be topped.
Thanks

We like the Revere Inn, and it was warm and comforting as usual, and perfect for a date night. However, I was a tad disappointed in my lamb chops this time for a couple reasons. The menu advertises four lamb chops for $34.95. Lamb chops are expensive, so you expect to get what is advertised. So when my plate came out there were only three lamb chops, and actually, I only counted it as two because there were two bones sticking out of one little piece of meat so I guess they counted that as two lamb chops but it was really only one lamb chop. When the waitress came back, I told her I wanted another lamb chop since there were only three on my plate, and they did cook me another nice lamb chop. But the point is, when the customer is spending almost $10 a piece for lamb chops, make sure she gets nice lamb chops. Other than that, it was a wonderful evening.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times in the past year. On previous occasions, the food and presentation were outstanding. On this visit, the food was poor to just OK. Upon inquiry, we learned that they had recently changed chefs. They comped one of our meals, but it didn't really compensate for the disappointing experience.

we always look forward to the romantic setting and good food. The waitress and bartender both remembered us from a year ago. The service is very friendly. We will be back for new years eve. We made our reservations through their website (we usually call) but we got the exact table we wanted...which was one night near the fireplace in the smaller dining room and the other night in the lounge (Table near window or near the kitchen both are great)

We had a friend in town and wanted to take him some place special. We had been to the Revere Tavern on several previous occasions and enjoyed it very much, but this particular visit was very disappointing. Our orders were taken promptly. The soup (a shrimp crab corn chowder) was delicious, and the salads were fine. But after salads, the drinks had been drained, and it quickly became evident things were off on this night. Our server was very nice, but even walking by several times to attend other tables and guests, our empty plates and bowls weren't cleared and 45 minutes passed before she asked if we wanted any more drinks. Second round of drinks were eventually brought out, but she left once again not having cleared the table, now notably cluttered with empty glasses, salad and appetizer plates, and soup bowls. The entrees arrived over an hour and a half after we arrived. My wife's meal was fine, but my friend and I both ordered the filet mignon (mine medium rare and his medium well). Both were overcooked and cold. Hungry as we were, we notified the server, who apologized and took them back. It was another 25 minutes before the entrees came back, my wife had long since finished her meal, and mine was still cooked medium well instead of medium rare, but I was far too hungry to send it back again. Eventually, a different server finally cleared most of our table. Our server eventually returned and said the manager wanted to comp our desserts for the trouble, and truthfully, we would've passed on dessert altogether had they not been comped. The desserts were okay, fortunately free, but did nothing to rescue the evening.

We're not writing the place off after one bad experience, but we also can't exactly offer any high recommendations after this experience.

It is a gem in the heart of Lancaster County, beautiful building fireplaces. The food was delicious, I had 2 crab cakes full of whole crabmeat my friend had a sirloin steak done to perfection, the wait staff were friendly but not overbearing. The meal was very relaxing we were not rushed at all. I give it 4 stars

Nice restaurant for this area especially if you want to skip the buffets. They have a kids menu though a wouldn't bring very rambunctious kids because most people are there on dates. Food was good -mushroom ravioli and tenderloin tips (very rich, they forgot the vegetable)- but the service was lacking. Our waitress seemed totally overwhelmed. The drinks, even soft drinks, were very slow to come out. My mother waited 20 mins for seltzer. We never got a bread basket. I think there is something off in the way they staff.

This is the first time in many years that I was not happy with the food here. We had the veal parm and it was over cooked and the cheese was burnt on top. The stuffed shrimp was rubbery and difficult to chew. The service was quick and the waitress was attentive. I am hoping this was a "off night" for the chef, since I have always raved about this place.

The ambiance of the tavern was great and the service was good.
I was very disappointed in the quality of the rolls, there should have been more options. The salad was obviously premade and therefore not fresh.
The mushroom ravioli was not very appetizing. There was a bitter taste to the sauce.
