We sat inside-lots of space between tables and everyone wearing masks. The food was great-especially the short rib dumplings and spicy miso rice cakes. The Ube tres Leches cake was ah-maxing!

Revel is amazing. The food is something that you can’t get anywhere else. The service was wonderful. We sat outside and felt completely safe. So glad we were able to enjoy a meal out for the first time since February. Thank you!!

Great food- big flavors, and lots of variety. Uncomfortable seating on the patio, and heaters would be helpful

I took my boyfriend to Revel for his 40th birthday and other than the host telling us that someone was coming at 730 so we’ll need to be gone by then before even seating us— it was perfect. There was nothing on the menu we tried that we didn’t like. However, the real stars of the evening were the Crab Noodles and Ube Tres Leches.

Dining indoors at Revel nowadays is odd. They're focused..out of necessity on the to-go orders. So service was so so. The food is still great so the impacted dining experience was not a big deal.

Our second time there, first time since the renovation. Ate on the patio, had great service and food. Everyone is doing their best making dining in the era of COVID better. The menu is slightly limited during this time and there is a 4% surcharge on the bill...I’m guessing to make up for decreased revenue/dining capacity? Won’t stop us from going back and supporting our local food scene.

We have been following Chefs Yang and Chirchi since Coupage in Madrona in the early 2000's.
The food is always inspired, surprising, delicious, and deeply satisfying.
The staff did a great job adhering to covid restrictions, and making us feel safe (I'm a recently retired RN).
Although neither of us are rap fans, the recorded music was rhythmically interesting. Could have been less present for our taste but we understand in relation to the current Fremont demographic.
It was our 21st wedding anniversary. We'll be back!

This was one of my first dinner experiences during Covid and it was lovely and incredibly safe feeling. The rice cakes and crab noodles were incredible and the dumplings and gyoza were a big hit too! Save room for dessert! The chocolate mochi cake was great. Wonderful service and drinks made it a wonderful night!

Revel was the perfect date night spot and provided the perfect ambiance considering the circumstances with Covid. It has been difficult finding a great dine in spot with what is currently going on but Revel was a pleasant surprise. Our server was upbeat and knowledgeable. He recommended the rice cakes which I also recommend, they were amazing. The Crab noodles, Short Rib wontons and rice cakes were all great choices and we walked away please. The art was amazing and the music was upbeat. It's not a cheap by any means but the value was exactly what we were hoping for, definitely will be back to Revel again soon!

The place was good and the food fantastic but it was a bit disappointed that I made a reservation a week before and also showed up early to get a patio table and I was told that all patio tables were booked when two were available, the hostess had a not very friendly attitude and she didn’t do anything to make us feel better or see if we could be moved to the patio on a first opportunity. Then it took so long for the waiter to check on us to order, the place was not that busy.

Had to really flag down the waiter despite the restaurant not being very busy, took 15 minutes of me trying to flag him down to pace our order. I use to dine at their old location a lot and this new space is just bland. The food is tasty but it's overpriced. I can't say i'll eat here again.

Excellent service and well-lit ambiance. Food was of varying levels. Recommend for taste the tofu rice bowl. The crab noodles have a tiny sprinkle of crab so not the best option.

Everything was perfect! We wanted to add two people to our reservation at the last minute, on a Friday night, and the hostess went out of her way to shift things around, and accommodate us. All the staff were sweet and friendly, and we were shocked to find out that our very capable waiter, had just started that night. We shared many small plates and every one of them was delicious! Luckily for me, my husband bought the cookbook! Next time we're in Seattle, I'll look forward to trying their sister restaurant, Joule.

Food was very salty and portion sizes on the smaller size, especially given the price. There is an automatic 20% service charge and if you bring in a birthday cake, $2 per person cutting fee. In the afternoon/evening the sunlight reflects off of the building windows across the street and shines in your eyes if you’re sitting towards the front. Servers were polite and accommodating but not particularly warm.

The food was delicious, as always, but the atmosphere was soul-less. Far prefer the old Fremont spot which felt energetic, alive and authentic. Also, the first thing the hostess said to us when we checked in four our reservation is that we had to be out of our table by 8:45 (for our 6:30 reservation) . Of course the time was not an issue --we were easily done by 8:15 but do you really have to say that?

We love Revel. It's our favorite restaurant/food in Seattle. But the new location just isn't the same experience. Eight of us came to celebrate a graduation. We made a reservation for 8:30. And we were literally rushed out the door. Like they all wanted to go home instead of serve us. They even turned up the lights to send a message - Yikes! It wasn't even 10pm yet. The old location had a hip late nighty vibe. The new one must make so much money at lunch (it's smack dab in the middle of the Amazon-ville) that they don't care about a city crowd that enjoys later dinners and not being rushed out the door. I brought another family as our guest, spent a lot of money and I was embarrassed by how they treated us. I still recommend the food. The chefs are the best. But if you don't want to serve past 9pm, at least tell me that when I make a reservation for 8:30pm. I hope when it comes back to Fremont that it returns to its hip, cool, city vibe.
