Our urban-industrial two-story ‘fishing lodge’ was built with local and reclaimed resources by Dovetail Construction and Marian Built. Our tables were crafted from bark-beetle pine, and we even found a home for our favorite re-purposed farm equipment!

- JjellybSeattle / Eastern Washington •11 reviews5.0Dined 5 days agoRevel's food has just the right balance of savory, sweet, spicy, and tangy. We shared the brussels sprouts and ribs-with-rice plate, both of which were great. There's a nice cocktail list, a selection of wines, and friendly bartender and servers. The wooden chairs in the bar could use some pads, and it's a bit on the noisy side, but those things do not spoil the experience. Highly recommend it for a casual night out.More infoRevelPrice: Moderate• Korean• Fremont•4.5
