Went on a double date with my wife and sister in law. Food, drinks and service were all excellent. We asked for a shot that the bartender didn’t know how to make and instead of winging it, the bartender came to our table and asked me how to make it. He nailed it! I thought that was a professional move.

Prompt service although one appetizer was apparently forgotten but it was just an add-on anyway; didn’t break or make the meal but only flaw in the service - waitstaff very nice so one mishap didn’t affect our gratuity. We will return.

Food and service was wonderful. Only downside was the noise level. I’m all for an energetic, lively type noise, but most of the time we couldn’t hear each other right at our own table. Waitress had to bend down to our level so we could hear her and, even then, we had trouble hearing what she said. If you don’t mind the noise, would highly recommend for a special dinner/date out.

Went to Revel Restaurant and Bar - Garden City last night with my husband for date night. I really can't say enough about how great it was from beginning to end. It's a beautiful atmosphere and very clean. We started with the Tokyo nachos (ahi tuna tartare, scallions, mango chutney, avocado, crispy wonton nachos and Wasabi cream), chargrilled marinated octopus and a watermelon and feta salad (over arugula with almonds in a blood orange vinaigrette). I had the grilled wild salmon for my entree and my husband had the ahi tuna. We shared tiramisu for dessert. We ate every last bite 🤣 The food was just so fresh and delicious. I highly recommend this place for a date night! Definitely make a reservation though, as they stayed busy all night.

Food and service were great. The booth we sat in was awkward, the seat was too far away from the table and the cushions were dirty. My date actually had to brush the crumbs off before she sat down. I'd eat there again if they didn't surprise me with a 4% credit card surcharge when the bill came. Not cool!

The food was overpriced and wasnt that great! Ordered organic chicken and it was overcooked hard and dry. Mash potatoes taste like idaho boxed mash w no flavor. Veggies were frozen veggies out of the bag. And they charge a credit card surcharge without notifying you of the charge. Will not ever return.

Lovely weeknight outdoor dining experience. There were very few diners when we arrived for our 6pm reservation. We were seated immediately and basically had the outdoor area to ourselves. The service was prompt, & attentive. The meal was excellent: crab cakes & calamari appetizers and scallops & scampi pasta entrees. Everything was delicious- well seasoned & nicely presented.
By the time we left there was another group outdoors & a
Lively atmosphere in the bar/lounge area.

I met two women I worked with decades ago for lunch at Revel. I hadn’t seen them in many years, although Facebook kept me in touch. It was wonderful to see them, and Revel was the perfect place. The booth was comfortable and allowed is to reminisce for 2 hours. Our server suggested we order an appetizer, which was good advice. We ordered the eggplant chips, which were huge and delicious. Our lunches - a Cobb salad for me, and a flatbread and club sandwich for the others- were likewise delicious and huge. It was great to reconnect and reminisce, and Revel was a wonderful place to fo it.

I want to start by saying that I loved this place. I recommend Brunch. My husband and I ordered the Peach Billini and it tastes great. We ordered fried calamari and it was delicious. I loved it and the tiramisu dessert is my favorite.

The salmon was perfect and the truffle fries were very tasty and well as my mocktail. I was a little cold and I had to find a seat without crumbs and fought away the flying insects as I sat indoors. All and all the experience was good.

Very noisy.
Main course was brought out with the appetizers but main course was taken back.
Food was not adequate for the price we paid.$$$$$. Server was pleasant and was happy to please us. Waited a while for water to be refilled. Overall , I will not go back. I went to revel to see if I would book my party there but after my so so experience I will have to look else where. Sorry!!!

Got to the restaurant and was seated right away. Got our drinks and food in a timely manner.
We thought the food was salty and the fish special was bland. The first time we went was a lot better but might try again.

Experience started out good, server was sweet and polite, drinks were well made. Unfortunately, only 1 of 4 food items we ordered was any good and the server basically disappeared after appetizers. We flagged down another server to finally get our check, who explained that the seating that night was not organized as it usually is. Really wanted to like this place as we had it on our list of places to go for a while, now doubt we will back.
