Well.. was excited to go here but one of the worst service experiences I have had in a long time. Waited very long to order, food was good when it came. Waited 20 minutes to pay. Will be a long time before I try again... note, only 50% occupied and didn’t appear under staffed.

There was nothing that made the restaurant stand out. It was regular fare which you can get anywhere. The margherita pizza was below par - no sauce, just very dry and no flavor.
The artichoke bruschetta - which was made on a toasted bread was cold. The bread was probably sitting for along time after it was toasted.
The service was poor. The waiter just wouldn't bring extra flatware so we could share the dishes we ordered. When I asked for extra, he mentioned there was a wedding party in their upstairs restaurant and that's why they didn't have extra flatware. I had to pick up flatware from other empty tables.

We left!! They tried to seat us next to hostess station where everyone walks and when we asked to sit at one of the many other empty tables we were told that they could only seat us at the bar. Plus special Mother's day menu was not posted on website when we booked

Overall the brunch was nice but several people in my party ordered the chicken and waffles and the waffles were underdone and freezing cold. They were inedible. Thankfully the staff was nice and we sent them back and ordered something else.

Everything was great except that they did not anticipate the large crowd well even though they knew it was coming (it was the big marathon that they have every year and it runs right by the restaurant). We ordered the Breakfast Burrito and they were all out. We ordered a Mimosa and they were all out of champagne. What we ended up getting was great and we enjoyed it, but it never should have come down to them being out of stuff like that so it was just mis-managed by not anticipating well. Overall, it was good but I had to make that observation.

Some of the food was very good, and it was reasonably priced -- a good place to grab a bite before a show or downtown event. I did not care for the ahi tuna appetizer because it didn't have enough flavor and the kale slaw dressing tasted like plain yogurt. But the blackened salmon sandwich was really delicious. It was good that they subbed a salad for fries, and the salad was good, but the balsamic vinaigrette dressing didn't taste like balsamic...more like maple syrup (actually, a lot like pancake syrup), so next time I would try a different dressing. I would come back.

We were in town graduating from Chatham University with our doctoral degree and wanted a special place to celebrate. Our server Courtney was amazing from the moment she introduced ourselves to the moment she said congratulations and goodbye. The food was very good quickly served and delicious. We would highly recommend raffle to anyone who would like a special experience.

Service was slow for 2 people just ordering a sandwiches and a drink. We chose Revel instead of Roost because we had tickets to a show downtown at 8:00 and thought it would be quick with the more basic menu. We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated immediately. The restaurant was busy but not full. It took 45 minutes before the food was served and a waiter from another table graciously took our check because he noticed we had been waiting. Had this been our first experience we wouldn’t go back. However, I’ve had good service before and I like the atmosphere, location, and food.

We enjoyed a quiet dinner. It was late and the restaurant was quiet enough that we can enjoy conversation. The salmon and steak and frites were great, but the baked cauliflower had too much salt. We did feel a bit rushed, with the server taking away plates and presenting the bill too quickly.

Took my adult son to lunch on his birthday. As on my prior visits Revel was a great atmosphere with and interesting menu including some unusual offerings. I don’t usually order pizza for lunch but the daily special with crab and bacon sounded intriguing. It was great, and I’ll go back there next time I’m in the mood for pizza in the Market Square area.

This was a great brunch experience. DJ was a great server and was very knowledgeable about the menu. The location is conveniently located near market square with on and off-street parking. The brunch menu had many selections and we were given complementary blueberry beignets. I had the steak and eggs. It was very good, but I would have liked my eggs to have been cooked better. My mother had the shrimp and girts. Four large shrimp and was cooked to perfection. The ambiance is lovely. It was a cold day and as soon as we walked it warm and we were greeted. The music was great! Wasn’t too loud and was an eclectic mix. We were seated against the wall in sturdy plastic chairs. This is a restaurant that I would go back to again for brunch and would try it for dinner also.

Impossible Burger was very good. However, salad was so overdrenched in dressing it was soggy and almost inedible. Server kept telling us "anything you need you just tell me" then kept disappearing for long stretches and when we asked for substitutions (we are vegetarians) he kept telling us no and would not ask the chef. Pictures they posted on internet looked great but the place is pretty much a run down bar.

Bartender was horrible and ran around like a chicken with her head cut-off. Acted like she was doing us a favor when she finally paid attention to us. I ordered a bottle of beer and when it was servedit was barely cold. I then had to wait at least 5 more minutes before she even glanced our way again to ask for a glass to pour the beer in. Glass was shoved across bar to me soaking wet and extremely hot from fresh washing. Waited another 3-4 minutes for a back bat person that gave me a cool one. Okay now my friend arrives orders a bottled beer and she too wanted a glass but the bartender dropped the beer and ran. Insulted when we had to "bother" her again for a glass. She informed us most people don't want a glass. I have been on both sides of the bar for over 40 years and informed her that most women over 40 prefer a glass. And in fact most beer lovers prefer a glass. Ummm maybe that is why beer enthusiasts go as far as having the right kind of glass, but any way she was a snippy little thing that has no business interacting with the public. I then asked to close my check as we were moving over to a table. Again it seemed like an imposition to her. And I need to add there was another bartender on and not very many people in the restaurant and the bar had a total of 6 patrons on the stools and we were three of them. I am writing this negative review because this is my third experience and all pretty bad. The food is mediocre and the service is terrible. I live downtown and even if something is amiss I try to give the benefit of a doubt but three strikes your out.

Revel was just okay. I guess I expected more because we were dining downtown (and we rarely do) before seeing a show at Heinz Hall. The acoustics were very poor. It was hard hearing my two friends sitting two feet away from me. The service was mediocre. It took a while to get a refill on water or additional ketchup. The food was really good though; however, I don't think a side of French fries should cost $4 no matter how good they are.
