Excellent food. We had crab dip; I had potato soup and a burger and my Fiancee had salmon. Each dish was delicious! The service was well paced and everyone there was pleasant. An excellent dining experience!

Celebrated my sons 21st birthday there. Big mistake. 30 minutes of waiting at the table before we were even acknowledged or asked if we want water. Drinks came out all wrong. Waiter would disappear for long periods of time. The food was ok. Nothing amazing, palatable. We won’t return.

Poor service. Drinks took 20+ minutes to show (restaurant wasn’t busy). Steak (medium - in my salad) was tougher than leather! Brussels sprouts were good. Would not go back.

It was absolutely horrendous. Made a reservation and it took 20 minutes to be seated. They didn’t bring the water or drinks for another half hour. I ordered an entree and the waitress came back 25 minutes later telling me it’s sold out. Then they charged me $29 for two drinks

There is no host/hostess stand when we walked in. We had to wait awkwardly until someone came up. Our server did not understand, or remember the red wines we were trying to order. She had to ask twice. My husband asked for his flank steak to be medium well and it came out medium rare. We really did not enjoy our experience and will not return.

This was my first time there and I ordered the chicken waffles. I've never ordered chicken waffles anywhere before and it was the best thing I've ever tasted. Sooo delicious. Our servers were lovely, service over all was wonderful although a tad slow. Could have been busy in the kitchen. We sat outside. Street is a little noisier than I anticipated since it is a side street. I will be going back and taking guests (I live downtown) over and over and get them to try those chicken waffles.

We booked the “brunch for two” experience which no one seemed to know was a thing. We were sat and after a half hour without a server the manager came over to take our order. The bloody mary is salty enough to kill someone. The manager stated there was only one person working the kitchen and DAMN he was killing it. The food was amazing and came out fairly quick. The ambiance is garbage, unless youre still 14 and just discovered weed - no one wants to hear michael franti and sublime, like for real. Id order take out but wont dine here again

This was my first time to Revel from a recommendation! This place lived up to and exceeded every expectation. My friends and I went for brunch which was AMAZING!! The food...THE FOOD was vibe to say the least. If I can suggest...the chicken and waffles were insanely good! Words just don't do it justice. Aslo, Stephanie was THE BEST!! She came with the energy and was so cool about everything. I will say that we had such a good time, that we didn't realize that we stayed a little late after they closed, however, the staff never rushed us or made us feel out of place! We planned to make this our "official" brunch spot at least once a month! Great experience! One of the best to ever do it!

They asked us about how we would like the meat to be cooked (as always medium rare) and after almost 1 hour (literally 55 minutes) they brought us 4 well done-dry hamburgers.

We stopped here after seeing positive reviews but our food was terrible, especially for the price they were charging. I had the salmon and it was raw and farm raised. Again, for the cost they should do better. Our waitress was new and told us all of the kitchen staff had walked out so the manager was cooking. Maybe in a few weeks it will improve but I wish they would have been upfront and told us so our expectations would have been lowered and maybe not charge for a chef when a manager is cooking.

One of the best restaurants I've been to in a VERY long time. It's my new favorite place after only 2 visits. The dinners are great but the brunch menu is simply beyond expectation. Go as soon as you can and just trust the menu. This chef knows what he's doing.

Amazing atmosphere and wait staff, the chicken and waffles were to die for, along with the mimosas. Overall the brunch for 2 deal is an absolute bang for your buck and the revel is genius for the idea because their food it’s phenomenal! We will be coming again.
