I have been wanting to get into Revel for brunch for quite a while. We finally got in for dinner during "Long Island Restaurant Week" which I thought would be a great way to sample the experience. We went on a Friday night with a reservation....nine-ish , the place was packed... PACKED ! ...and the noise was absolutely ridiculous - there is no ceiling damper so the din of loud talking , compounded with the music and the noise from the sports games on the big screens in the bar area made normal dinner conversation impossible. The food, however, is superb....a little pricey ( NYC prices on LI) but good portions and worth coming back for another try. We had the skirt steak and chicken scarpiello - both on the regular menu and excellent.
Hopefully, the unacceptably loud noise in the restaurant and the slight lack of attentive service will be attributed to the 'Restaurant Week' special and not their usual atmosphere - we will try again , I would be happy to make this a regular "go to" spot
