We came for brunch on a Saturday -- indoor seating, restaurant was observing safe practices for seating parties at a distance. Food was fantastic -- this was our first time there and we will definitely go back and recommend to others.

Thanks for an amazing Friday night! Service and food were spectacular as usual and these guys are so great with accommodating my gluten allergy. Revel is easily becoming my favorite restaurant.

I have a gluten allergy (celiac’s disease) and they were incredibly accommodating. The food was delicious and the service was spectacular. A go-to from now on.

Two friends & i went in for brunch! We all got the chicken and waffles and enjoyed every bite we took! Just the right about of sweet and spicy! This place is great for brunch, lunch & dinner. If going for dinner i would recommend the brussel sprouts they are to die for. I love this place and the environment!

Love the atmosphere here. Great job with social distancing and Covid guidelines. Brussel sprouts app and drinks were great. Dinner was so so. Got the revel mixed grill flank steak and shrimp with broccolini and asparagus. Vegetables were good. Steak was meh. Tough. And smothered in brown sauce (which was not stated on menu) which I am not a fan of at all. The steak was swimming in the sauce which overwhelmed and hid the favor of the meat. Shrimp was not great either. Bland . There are a lot of other things on the menu (burgers, handhelds, etc) that looked great coming out of the kitchen. But the mixed grill was not worth it. Next time we visit we’ll go for the more feel-good food.

What a nice find, great food, the burger was prepared nicely, gouda cheese and onion straws had perfect texture. My wife's drink was refreshing and with the fresh blackberries hit the spot. Let's not ignore the brisket mac, tender brisket, bit of crunch on the mac and cheese. Too full for dessert, but maybe next time we pass through.

I wish I would have discovered this gem sooner! Second time dining here and I continue to fall in love even more. I had brunch today.. Brisket Benedict which did not disappoint. I had the salmon sandwich last week and have been craving this joint ever since and just had to come back this weekend for more. The vibe is awesome and the wait staff and cocktails are fantastic. This is by far my new favorite place in the city. I’ve had the casadilla, salmon sandwich, brisket benedict, and cheesecake...and I can’t wait to go back and try more off the menu. If you haven’t been or haven’t been in a while... you must go! You won’t regret it.

This place never disappoints. This time it was brunch and we were all truly happy with our choices. One recommendation to add to the weekend brunch menu: freshly squeezed orange juice.

I came here for my 24th birthday dinner with my sisters and it was a perfect night. Kayla was our host and even surprised me with a birthday cheesecake. I had the salmon sandwich and my sisters had the sweet &spicy chicken sandwich and they were all delicious. Hope to come back soon for Brunch!

I'd eaten for the first time at R&R a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I went back with my wife, who really loves burgers. The staff there is great. Everyone is seated well apart from one another. The burgers were great. The pickles on the burgers were exceptional and apparently, they make them there. We had 2 different beers that were on tap and both were very good. We will certainly be back.

Our waiter was truly fantastic. I am disabled, and he helped me to the rest room, and, after we ate lunch, out to my Uber. One of the best waiters that I ever had in my nearly 66 years.

We stopped by for brunch today. Amazing food and service. Felt very comfortable sitting in the huge open windows in front of the space. They had a huge patio as well but we felt fine indoors! We had the shrimp and grits, the chicken and waffles. Bellini’s with peach purée and Bloody Mary’s. Amazing experience. Thanks guys!

Amazing amazing. We were prepared for mediocre based on other reviews but really this place is a gem. Layers of flavor on simple comfort foot elevates it just right. The pretzel should be illegal and the burgers and chicken sandwich are FIRE. Herbal/botanical cocktails with the right amount of sweet. Did not disappoint— exceeded expectations!

We made a same day reservation for an impromptu birthday celebration. It was the perfect choice for a girls night out! Not to noisy, the service was really fantastic. We shared appetizers and several entrees and everything came out perfectly timed and so delicious. Our favorite appetizer had to be the pulled pork quesadilla it was crispy and really tasty.

We made an Open Table reservation for brunch and were seated promptly upon arrival. First the positive:

The food was delicious and it was a peaceful place for Sunday brunch. It was easy to talk and there was no television, or music to talk over.

Now the negatives:
Our server, Isiah (whose name is only known to us by looking at our receipt) could not have been more disinterested in us. This did not seem to apply to other tables he served. After pouring coffee, we never saw him to place our order. We had to go to the bar to place the order with him. At no time during the more than hour we were at Revel, did he check back with us to see if we wanted a coffee refill, a cocktail or anything else. He did stop at the tables on both sides of us and check in with them. We had to ask for a coffee refill and it took > 10 minutes to receive
Also another server (perhaps the manager) attempted to deliver the wrong order to us.
As frequent restaurant goers in Pittsburgh this might have been the WORST service we have ever received

We attempted to speak to the manager after paying our bill as we would have liked to share this in person, but there was no one at the hostess stand for more than 10 minutes.

Thus, it is highly unlikely that we will return or recommend Revel, despite the delicious food
