Great ambiance. Always wanted to check it out here, But was disappointed. Quantity of food was good but the quality was not great! Food came out very fast but I didn’t like my dish or my date dish. The music was way too loud, not sure if this is just a Saturday night thing. But if you’re going on a date and want to have a conversation without shouting this is not the place to go. So it seemed like everyone was shouting. Great ambiance but don’t think I’ll be going back there.

Pros: Revel has a wide menu with something for everyone. Makes it an easy place to go. I haven't gone to Revel in awhile, but will be back in the near future. Great service, good food, fun drinks. It was a great way to enjoy our Friday night.

Cons: It is noisy. Prices are on the high side.

Drinks came out after food. Drinks were good, the waiter didn’t even check on us. I asked for medium well, I got medium rare. Server said he couldn’t give us a discount because no managers were there. Food was cold. He offered us free gelato instead. Place is super overpriced for crap food.

My fiancé and I had our 4 year anniversary dinner. The food was incredible, the service could not have been any better, the only issue was the room was fairly noisy. Not at any fault of the staff of restaurant, we just maybe should've asked for a table in the back room.

I am confused by Revel. Is it a sports bar or a fine dining experience? Went there on a Saturday night with a reservation. There are two rows of tables. One row runs the length of the bar, the other row behind this first row and therefore further from the bar. Although the quieter row was empty, we were seated in the row seating along the bar. Tables were close, so you had to squeeze in and disrupt your neighbors. Doesn’t make sense. There was plenty of room elsewhere. There was a very lively bar crowd screaming every time the team on TV scored. The noise level made it impossible to carry on a conversation. The food is pricey and was definitely underwhelming. The service was good, but the noise level and the accompanying lukewarm, subpar food ruined the experience. This was my third time at this restaurant and this experience soured me to the whole scene. Will not return. Note to management: there should be a dress code for bartenders. Somewhat appalling that the barmaid’s chest was quite obviously exposed. Not classy.

I had a reservation and received a call from the restaurant to confirm our arrival. We arrived on time at the Franklin Avenue entrance. My husband and I were not greeted or taken to the other side of the restaurant for several minutes as staff members walked by us. Once on the other side (noisy) we were seated in the smallest table near the bar even though this room was 60% empty at 4:45 pm. When we asked for a quieter table, we were taken back to the other side of the restaurant where no waiter came until we put our coats on to leave after another wait. The managers seemed uninterested in us and solely waiting for the later crowd.

Very disappointing. This was very poor service.

My boyfriend and I came here for the Friday after Valentine's Day and our server was great and friendly, and the food and drink were all very good too ; it was a bit noisy because the bar area was full and it was the start of the NBA All-Star weekend but it wasn't unbearable ; I definitely will come back again

We sat in the bar area, so the "revelers" were noisy. However, the food was delicious and creative, service excellent and the manager (owner?) came over to us to make sure we were satisfied. I was treated to dinner, so I didn't pay much attention to the prices on the menu. I would recommend Revel to anyone looking for a delicious meal in Garden City and expect to be back again soon. It was easy to make a reservation on OpenTable (which I use regularly).

The staff was rude, and my waitress looked like we were bothering her everytime we needed a refill on drinks. Then I had to wait 30 minutes for my food to be wrapped because it was dropped on the floor in the kitchen, they wound up making the wrong food and then had to remake the food I ordered. We had to find someone to ask where the food was, and then we were told. Our apps also came out with entrees and we were asked if we wanted them before dinner and we clearly said yes when we ordered it. She told us she assumed we wanted everything at once since only 2 out of 8 guests ordered apps. The food was good but I wasn't thrilled with the experience as an overall for my bachlorette party.

The place was super noisy and the food was not FRESH. I went during LI Restaurant week and was completely disappointed. Both me and my husband had bubble guts that night. Also I noticed an odor when I walked in but didn't think anything of it until later in the night.
