Revel Restaurant and Bar - Garden City Ratings and Reviews
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
Went there today with a few friends today and had to say that my overall feel was good. The service was not too great. The server was nowhere in sight for the most part. My glass cup was refilled more times then I saw the server. However, the food was pretty good. The only thing I didn't appreciate was the cheesecake creme brule wasn't the best. The sugary crust on top was soggy and not freshly torched sugar. There was a party going on as well at the bar, so all I heard were ladies yapping and being unreasonable loud for no reason but to be heard. They really should have seated our party far from that in a more quieter area.
Very nice atmosphere, unfortunately I think it's just that..... menu reads very nice... the food not so much...... friends had burgers, very dry no matter how it was ordered and I had pasta, ummm, bad choice, tasted like my 8 yr. old made it........ ok never again 😞
Too expensive for the level of food/service they deliver. There were 3 of us – waitress was very sweet but orders didn’t come out correctly. The Mediterranean salad was good. The lobster roll, was ordered minus the roll, over greens. The lobster wasn’t anywhere near what it should’ve been especially considering the lunch was $27 per person. That’s quite pricey when no cocktails were ordered & 1 of us ordered an appetizer as our lunch! The restaurant itself is well decorated & comfortable. While there’s a large parking lot in the rear, parking is challenging since a majority of the spots only permit 1 hour. The noise is extreme making conversation challenging. Overall, not the best experience - cannot recommend.
Waiter was lost in space. took our drink orders and never brought them. After we asked for our drinks which were sitting on the bar for like 20 minutes he said "oh no one gave them to you". We ordered apps. then he came back with break for the table. We then ordered our main course. After we ordered he came over to tell us the "specials for the night", we told him we ordered already and he said Oh right. There was only one other table filled in the entire restaurant. that being said we had the wings and eggplant chips for appetizers. Wings were big and crispy however they were reheated and dry as a bone on the inside. entrees lamb chops were seasoned nicely as were the lemon potatoes and cook very good. Salmon was over cooked by like 10 minutes and dry.
I was looking for a place to go for my anniversary so I made a last minute reservation. I was expecting a restaurant with good music and nice ambiance. What we got was an overly crowded sports bar. The tables for two were on top of one another and there were multiple TVs on with football games playing. I felt like I had to scream across the table to speak to my husband. I am not opposed to having a drink and watching a game but their website didn't make it seem like that kind of place. I may not have been so annoyed if we didn't pay so much for dinner. On the upside The food was very good. Of course they didn't have two of the items I wanted to order, which was disappointing. I feel like the place was having an identity crisis between being A sports bar and a posh eatery.
Atmosphere and dinner was great. The air conditioning was BLASTING and several people were complaining. My waiter told us they were "working on it" and my response was "What is so hard, raise the temperature!" Many of us continued to freeze during our meal which Kadence it unpleasant.
Very attractive-looking place. Seated us right away.
Very nice menu and daily specials.
Very noisy as no sound-absorbent material ANYWHERE!!!....but still enjoyed food very much.
When I mentioned (not complained) at the end of our meal, that the shrimp were a little saltier than we liked, the waiter immediately told the manager, who generously offered us coffe AND dessert!!!!
With very good food and terrific customer service, I'll definitely be going back!!!!
Completely ignored by the waitstaff and took 20 min. to get a glass of wine upon arrival. Sat at a table near the bar area which was pretty filthy. Noticed that bartender spent majority of time socializing with waitstaff and the two customers at the bar, who seemed to be friends, rather than filling drink orders in nearly-empty restaurant. Food was OK, but no offer of bread or even minimal accoutrement upon arrival. Waiter was missing throughout the meal and never refilled water or asked if we wanted more drinks until we were far past feeling hungry or comfortable with the meal or ambience. Incredibly detached service during a time when we were probably one of three couples in the whole place. Such a disappointment and at odds with other positive reviews recorded for this place. Stay away until they clean up their act, literally!!!
This restaurant was phenomenal! This was our first time here and we were very impressed. We went for lunch and the menu was very extensive. Will definately have to go back just to try everything we want. The grilled octopus appetiser was outstanding. 2 of my kids shared the lobster mac and cheese and i ate a fair amount of it as well. At first i was a little dissapointed that it did not seem like there was much lobster meat in the dish, but the overall lobster flavor was the best of any lobster mac and cheese i have ever had. Evidently, the dinner menu is even more expansive. Can't wait to go back next time we are in town.
My wife and I decided to make a meal out of appetizers and all were excellent (Lobster Wonton was our favorite). Service was great and drink menu was very good as well. They make Sangria 4 different ways and we tried the Red Sangria which I recommend. Warm pecan pie dessert was amazing. The ambiance is nice and noise level wasn't bad and we were near the bar. We will definitely be back.
The food and service was excellent. I went there for Sunday Brunch with family and friend to meet with the Brude and Groom before they left on their honeymoon. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was served quickly and it was delicious! I will check them out for lunch or dinner next time I am in town.
This was our first time at the restaurant. We only ate four great sounding appetizers.
One was better than other. Highly recommend the Lobster Roll, and tuna taco.
Looking forward to a return trip. By the way, a very nice looking restaurant also, and if you should want to eat at the bar, there is plenty of bar seating.
really I would rate it higher but we had a bad experience which I know was out of the restaurants control. Fire alarm went off in an attached building which caused the restaurants alarm to wail for a good ten minutes. Again I know this was not their fault but it was right in the middle of my main course and I had to leave to avoid the noise. The staff was apologetic but could have gone the extra mile to try and make up for it.
If not for this I would give this place a solid 4.5 stars. Have been here for lunch and definitely had a good time.
