    I've been to Revel before and loved it. Food, drinks and service have always been outstanding. So much so that it was one of the 2 dinner reservations I made while a friend was visiting New Orleans for a few days. We showed up for our reservation (after confirming via opentable the day before) and it was closed. No one answered phone when I called. I understand emergencies may come up to cause restaurant to have to close unexpectedly and/or on short notice, but we would have appreciated a heads up from the restaurant so we could have made other plans and saved ourselves an uber across town.

    Chris and Laura are always the perfect hosts. When Chris starts pontificating about the history of cocktails the bar almost comes to a stop and listens to his amazing tales. Highly recommended. Get the crawfish grilled cheese and a mint julep to win the day!

    Wait person didn't offer a list of specials and I didn't know there were any until another staff member gave specials list to other guests. We both ordered salads and instead of bringing them out first, they were brought with the entrees and there was barely enough room on the table for four plates and two diners. The food was okay and way over-salted. I think this is more of a bar that serves food than a foodie destination that has a bar. Just wasn't impressed.

    Restaurant was mostly empty when all others in the area were booked to capacity. Had a strong musty smell like there was water damage in the floors, walls or ceiling. Food was ok, but presentation was poor.

    I am extremely impressed by everything at Revel. They exceeded my expectations with food service and beverage. You will not find a better bargain anywhere. The server was absolutely fun. We will return next time when in New Orleans.
