- Beautiful scenery in and outside
-Food was amazing, went for brunch and will soon return to try the dinner menu
-Our server Michelle was outstanding and she mentioned she was new there, but could have fooled me.

Food and service was good but a bit overpriced for some of the items. Outdoor area was decorated nicely.

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.

The food was excellent and so was the service! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others. The eggplant chips appetizer was the best!

Food was delicious and service was very good. We ate outside as there was a beautiful breeze and it is set-up so nicely with plants.

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.

Everything was great! Good and Service was nice.
My only complaint is the main meal came out 3 minutes after our appetizer which was way to fast

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.

Revel has a diverse and accommodating menu, with something for everyone. I highly recommend starting with the eggplant chips. One order was plenty for our table of four. We all enjoyed our main dishes, the short ribs, the branzino, the seafood paella and scallops. For dessert, we had salted caramel chocolate pretzel gelato, which was enough for the four of us to each have a couple of spoonfuls. The only "complaint" was that the service on the dessert was very slow. The eggplant chips came out quickly and main dishes followed right after. After they cleared the table and we ordered dessert, the coffee came out relatively quickly, but the dessert took a very long time. We had to track down the waitress and ask about it. So a minor, but irritating flaw in an otherwise nice dinner.

Lunch date with the wife and we were pleasantly surprised by Revel.
The menu is huge but we were able to narrow it down to a few gems, and the food was excellent.
The service was attentive and informative…and our water glasses were always full.
The place gives off a southern Florida vibe with its music and decor. I’m sure the volume pumps up for dinner.
Would definitely go back with friends for a fun night out.

Sky was our waitress and she was not good at all. She took a long time to come to our table the entire visit except when we were paying. We stayed later to observe her to see if she was that way with other guests and she was not. She was attentive and seemed efficient with everyone but us!

I am highly disappointed by my recent first and only experience. First off, I was informed I could not order from the lunch menu because it's not offered on weekends only brunch is. There's nothing on the website that says that or anything in the confirmation when I booked the reservation. Second , I was told I could not order certain drinks because it's only brunch drinks. This again was not advertised. Third, what I ordered was the mascarpone stuffed French toast and I was highly disappointed. What has been advertised on your instagram account was NOT by any means what came to my table. It was all butter and literally fat drippings mixed with oil ON THE PLATE. Fourth, the dessert again was falsely advertised as what appeared at the table was NOT what was shown on your account. Fifth, the waiter without informing us a party of 3 charged my credit card with an extra 30 dollars for a tip. I'm sorry but the service and food was not worth an extra 30 dollars that came to my total alone of 112.21. On the menu that was handed to us it says a party of 6 or more to be charged automatically with tip included. We Were 3 PEOPLE!!!! Highly disappointed, food was truly atrocious compared to what was expected and I will not be coming back. The first two pictures are what I received and the last 2 pictures is what's advertised on their account!! Truly upsetting and disgusted!!!!!!

It was a horrible experience. The restaurant offered Brunch only for $33 per person. The meals had been prepared earlier and apparently had been sitting around. The braised short ribs was dry and tough to eat and the Cabo meal was tasteless. Our waiter was hard to find resulting in poor service. They automatically added the tip to the bill even though there was only two of us. I will never go again,

Food was okay. Didn’t realize there was an automatic 20% fee so I accidentally tipped on top of that. Hope that goes away soon.
