We had a mixed bag. We definitely understand the understaffing issue and are very patient. That said, they were understaffed. All were pitching in, but service was slow and it was difficult to find a server when needed. The soup was amazing. My husbands fish was excellent But I was not thrilled with the Brussels sprouts as they were so salty that I rendered them inedible. The server was very kind and took them off of out bill. I will try Revel again because I believe it could be very good. Great sharing menu

I had mixed grill w/beef tips and shrimp, my husband a steak, two others in our party - one had lamb w/pasta and one ordered black cod - all meals were excellent. For appetizers: shrimp and grits - one of the best I've ever had & Brussel sprouts - again, very good. We'd definitely go back.

I was attracted to Revel by its eclectic menu. I was not disappointed. Decor is modern and lacking much style; however this is made up for with the incredible cocktail and food choices. Our service was prompt and friendly. He was helpful with my selection of the shrimp and grits. This was listed as a shareable on the menu but was quite adequate for my dinner. I paired it with a house salad of arugula, cheese, candied walnuts, and blueberries with a sherry vinaigrette dressing. Both items were delivered promptly and delicious. When in Pittsburgh next, I will make it a point to return to Revel.

We were headed to a show at the Benedum after dinner so needed to be in and out. This was complicated because it was light up night, so downtown was as busy as it could possibly be. We arrived a bit late due to traffic, but it all worked out. We had 3 shareables and they were all delicious. The portions were big, we couldn’t eat it all. Once the server got to our table we had great service and got to our show on time.

Love the new menu. From salads to vegan tacos to chicken, beef & shrimp mixed grill, shrimp & grits, etc!!!
Lots of different items and many gluten free options for my husband. They also have a kids menu.
The location is great! Right in Market Square with a parking garage attached, with the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown. We ate dinner and then took the T over to Heinz Field for the Pitt Game. It was so convenient!

Well I made the reservations a month ago for a special occasion and then they closed the restaurant for a week without bothering to advise me. I even called to confirm and no response, and no apology after they reopened. Luckily we discovered they were closed the day before and made reservations at a nearby restaurant. So if you care about that kind of courtesy then don’t go here. They obviously don’t care about the customer.

Our large group had great service and ate really yummy food. The Brussel Sprouts were so good we should have ordered more! I ordered the flatbread and wasn't expecting much but the dough was so good! Lots of burgers ordered and everyone said they were really good and cooked well. Two in our party ordered the salmon dinner and said it was really good. No one had room for desserts but this is a place we would definitely come back to!
