Great food. Service! Will come back!
This place is always great. Best option is for some drinks and a variety of small plates
This is the best restaurant in Danville, which isn’t saying much. In fact, it would be the best for food and service pretty much anywhere in the country. We love coming here and have been frequenting Revel since they opened.
There is not a bad item on the menu. They have an amazingly talented bar staff. Really delicious craft cocktails. And the service is impeccable—professional and friendly, including the management. You forget you are in the very service deficient Bay Area.
Unfortunately for us, Sunday we had a waiter who brought that Bay Area awfulness to our experience. He was terse, pompous, haughty and a know-it-all. He blamed his mistakes on other people. And the biggest sin of all—he haughtily corrected my French pronunciation AND he was wrong. I studied French for eight years. I may not know a lot but I know my French.
But ONE time out of 30 or so visits is a pretty good record so it doesn’t change our feelings about this wonderful restaurant. I realize everyone has an off day. But I really suggest Revel management nip this in the bud. Toxic attitudes can infect a restaurant pretty quickly. And we don’t want to see that happen to Revel. That is one of the big differences between this restaurant and the hundreds of others in the Bay that just don’t get it.
Always enjoy going to Revel. Good service, good atmosphere really really good food! If you go don't miss the avocado bruschetta! I have a small appetite and they have a nice selection of small plates. Food is fresh, they have seasonal cocktails so always something fresh and new!
The service and food was excellent unfortunately we had a party of 4 next to us that were consuming liquid dinner and were very loud . They did leave half way through our dinner and the waiter apologized to the whole seating area after they left .
Always great food, no matter what dish you order. There are many choices to share.
I like Revel, but I truly hate the seats back by the restroom: dark, loud, busy. For the cost of this fine dining, get rid of those tables, unfortunately puts a damper on the whole experience ☹️
Met a friend and we ate outside! Fabulous time and food excellent. Service was wonderful. A relaxing experience...
Revel is my favorite place to grab a drink and share some plates with friends. The cocktails are so good and pair well with all the food.
Excellent food and service. The desserts are lovely!
Tonight was Tuesday night paella. I ordered and it was one of the best I’ve had. 2 thumbs up. As always the avocado bruschetta was excellent. What really surprised me was the lemon meringue pie on a graham crust. I’m a very picky lemon meringue pie guy, and this was the best I’ve had outside of Mom’s. Outstanding. Keep it up!
3 nights in a row and it was great every time. See my earlier reviews for details.
We liked it so much we went back the next night. We’re in the process of moving and don’t have a kitchen so we’re probably back here again tonight for the third night in a row. The cocktails are great. The buttermilk biscuits with fried chicken are wonderful. The avocado on toast is almost a dinner itself. The Wagyu hamburger was very good. The fries (both truffle and regular) are good but not the best I’ve had. The flourless chocolate cake is more like a chocolate pudding. That one needs improvement. Overall, we love it. I think it’s better than Esin.
Revel was recommended to me by several friends. I went Saturday evening and was very pleased with the service; the front desk asked us where we would like to sit, a prompt server to take our drink orders and our server had thorough knowledge of the specials and regular menu. I think the best part was the server's knowledge of wine, cocktails and the menu details. I was very impressed.
The food was fabulous; I had the chicken sliders with fries and my dining partner had a rib eye. Both were delicious. For dessert, we shared an order of Beignets. They had a wonderful dipping sauce. I highly recommend Revel and will be returning as soon as possible.
Great bar area, cocktails and also food.
Can't miss - very tasty comfort food and more, reasonable prices, nice beverage and wine list, great setting either indoor or out, really good service.
Amazing food - clean, healthy and Paleo options! Wine list is fantastic! Wait staff is wonderful too
We sat outside and it was very nice. Food was good. My Pisco Sour was superb.
Went on a Sunday, which was my birthday. I picked the spot after looking at various reviews. Had been to Esin, so I had high expectations that were absolutely realized. Got there a little before our 6:00 reservation and the place was already bustling -- front, back and inside. We sat inside, which is an attractive space. The whole experience made for a fun birthday. Hostess seated us right away. Server right there for our drink order. Solid, well executed menu, good selection of cocktails, beer and wine, and reasonable prices. One of my group couldn't make it so looking forward to going back as a regular.
Always fresh always delicious. Wait staff with good suggestions. The BEST avocado bruschetta never disappoints. Tried the fried chicken sliders over the meatballs and they were sooo delicious.
I love the fact they have small plates as I am not a big eater. Creative drinks that are fresh and delicious. And of course they do have amazing short ribs.
Never a bad meal, always great service and great food.
Do not miss this jewel
Perfect balance of a casual and lively atmosphere with high quality food and cocktails. These are the types of restaurants I love. Revel did it all well!
We went for lunch, sat in the back courtyard, and it was pleasant. Our waitress was lovely and helpful. My lamb sliders were very, very salty.
Food was great. We had the tostadas. Flavor and quality were over the top. Our waitress was very attentive and did not rush us. We had a very enjoyable lunch.
The food was great. The restaurant does get busy and the noise level matches the interior close seating. On this occasion it appeared the available seating was at capacity, however walk-in and /or reserved seating continued to put what appeared to be an unexpected load on available seating. Therefore, those customers like myself are quickly targeted as a potential seating set up to accommodate incoming customers. This is were service went off the rails. I should say that I called and made reservations, arrived early to have a better choice of seating and enjoy our dining experience. So, now staff approaches our table with a panicked expression on their face asks, “How was your meal?” Well, this person was not our server and our server was standing off to the side watching the exchange . We were not offered coffee, dessert from this point on. We got the hint that they needed the booth. So the missteps of the staff this evening were transferred to the customer who essentially had to cut their evening out short. I understood the circumstances, however our family night ended in this dismal situation through no fault of our own. Yes
Enjoyed our dinner at Revel. Great California casual with International influence food and drinks.
Today, we visited Revel on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We had the Avocado Bruschetta with Pickled Fresno Chiles, Crispy Shallots & Sea Salt. This dish is simple yet awesome. We coupled it with the pickled veggies and a couple glasses of wine. Perfect!
Service is excellent. Great menu! Great cocktails!
Loved the menu, with lots of enticing options all concocted with very fresh ingredients. Enjoyed the meatball sandwich very much. Meatballs were light, fluffy, and flavorful, in a soft, fresh baguette. It comes with the house fries, which are delicious. Very nice touch to offer both still and sparkling water complimentary.
Good but very busy so service a little slow especially for wine during entree.
It is a very good place to celebrate birthday. Good to try the fried chicken (their Monday special). Will definitely go there again!
Monday nights with Mary's fried chicken is a regular for us. We bring friends and family about once a month and its the best fried chicken in the area. We can always count on the meal and the service to be very good.
First time there service was attentive food was satisfactory seated right away order came promptly drinks were great with a good selection
What a great place for a Father’s Day lunch! Great service. Delicious, healthy food. Love the wine list too!
Great place to have a leisurely meal with family and/or friends!
We live this place. Great food and atmosphere.
Went here for a friend's birthday and it was delightful. Great food, wonderful service and we sat outside so it was relatively quiet. Great experience and very friendly staff.
We went to dinner on a Tuesday, my birthday, especially for the Tuesday special, which was Paella.
When we first got there, around 5:30, there weren’t too many people so it was quiet. By the time we left at 6:30, it was quite busy and becoming noisy, with a lot of noise from the bar area.
We started with an appetizer of Bolgogi chicken skewers. They were very tasty. We also had wine and a Scottish Mule.
Our main course was Paella. There was a good amount of shrimp, fish, clams and chorizo in a perfect serving size. My only complaint was that the rice was more of a Spanish rice, tomatoey rather than the traditional saffron rice as served in Spain, and in most Paella dishes I’ve had before.
Our server brought me a free desert of my choice for my birthday.
I will go back but not for the Paella.
Nice, casual ambiance with good food. My shrimp and grits was WAY too rich, as it arrived looking like shrimps in a big bowl of cream. I drained the cream off, and---look! There were grits under all of that cream. It was still delicious and creamy after a cup of cream was removed.
We'll be back, as the menu is nice, staff nice, food good.
The food and the service excellent. Always have alternatives for my I'm vegetarian.
Everything was excellent! Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant. The food and wine awesome!
