The food is somewhere between ok and good. I had a watermelon drink that had a weird undertone of musty watermelon to it. Not what I was expecting for a summer watermelon based drink. The salad of cucumber was good, really quite tasty—actually was the best thing we had. Then came dinner. I had the charcoal grilled albacore but the menu does not call this out as a cold dish and I had no charcoal flavor that I detected. The cracker it was served with was better than the fish, for real, just saying. My partner in crime had the blacked tuna bowl which was sort of a standard bowl, not great but OK. My date liked the place much better. I thought maybe I need something else to eat so I ordered the Dan Dan noodles which were heavy and overly sauced. Getting a sauce right is imperative, but this one was overly seeet and had drowned the nice noodle. The sausage was spicy and sort of umami which was nice, but way more of a winter dish than a summer one. Heavy and overkill. My date had the cake and loved it she ate the whole thing. Dinner was a whopping $97 so with tip was about $118...yeah, could have had the same things elsewhere for about half the price. You are paying for the DJ and the people standing around. The music was really in point. Like for real, like the DJ was the best I have heard in a while. Was not that busy either and I understand why...I’d def go back for drinks at the bar and to hear the DJ but I’d stop for food after somewhere else. Lol

Tasty food, good service, fun music and great vibe, Revelry is a good bet any time. Really appreciate the focus on fresh, unusual flavors with an Asian-foward focus, and the realization that good music completes the experience!

The service left a fair amount to be desired. The food was very rich and salty and left the palette hoping for some bright or sour notes to break up the heavy sauce. The spice blend in the mapo tofu was offputting.

Revelry is a fun place with a fun vibe, good for post work or evening out. Could be a casual but impressive date night as well. The old boomboxes and the craft cocktails make it perfect for a non-serious night out. We were from out of town and looking for something innovative and many top lists recommended Revelry. The food was clever and crafty, showing potential with a bit of moderation. The signature chicken with peanut brittle was tasty but overpowering in the sweetness. A yummy appetizer that invites a beer, but alone was too much on the sweetness scale. The fried pancake with pork belly stood out as crisp and tasty. The handcut noodles were the right texture but again the sweetness was overpowering. I thought the food was solid and the pricing reasonable.

very good happy hour. the fried chicken was a treat, the cauliflower, the fries were all very interesting flavors and distinctive. Interesting choice of bok choy to dip into a nice hummus. Only caution is the wine is a bit expensive for HH compared to most places. Cocktail might be a better choice or a Rainier!

You can count on always getting great food here! love the new HH menu and the old fashions are perfect.
Don't like the "rules" about HH menu - some days you have to sit at the bar - other days not. Wish that they'd just land on the hours, seating, and days for HH specials - make life much easier.

The food was unique and delicious, and the service was efficient and friendly. Unfortunately, I found the music to be a little on the loud side and extremely offensive. I have no interest in listening to songs about ef this and ef that, bi***es and ho*s, etc, while I'm trying to enjoy a nice meal.

Delicious food, I definitely will be back and even stated to my friend when there, I'd feel comfortable eating at the bar solo. My one complaint would be how loud the music is.... I love music and very much appreciate it, however when you can't hear the company you're dinning with it's a problem. Maybe notch the volume down a couple steps... Otherwise, everything was wonderful.

Amazing experience! Highly recommend the Soju flight- it’s awesome they infuse everything in house (especially loved my fortune cookie sample). I ordered the cucumber hijiki salad, Mrs Yangs spicy fried chicken (could have ordered 10 of those), seaweed noodles, and the kimchi pancake. Food amazing, service phenomenal- couldn’t have asked for a better dining experience. Wishing I could have their playlist always as my background music. Thank you again, can wait to come back many more times!!

The music was loud hip-hop. We were seated right away. Our appetizers, delicious fried potatoes with an Asian topping, came in a timely fashion. The dan-dan noodles and the pork bowl were very slow in coming. “A busy Friday night” was the reason given. The food was delicious.

Start with the Fish + Chips - it's a small $4 bowl of house potato chip and crispy anchovy glaze, it's hard to eat just one. For our party of four we ordered across the menu to share, two of this, tow of that... but then we hit the must have chicken! Of course the other reviews will say the same but for good reason, this Korean fried chicken comes topped with peanut brittle and an equally sweet, tangy, and spicy sauce. We had to order seconds. Our cocktails, meal and service was amazing. Well done, will done!

Dandan noodles were excellent! Just the right amount of spice. Great service as well. Appreciated the wide drinks selection. Got the mochi doughnuts for dessert, however, and found them very odd-tasting and bitter... would recommend against those! Place has limited seating, but a very cool ambiance. Would go back!

The food is unique and delicious, but having a DJ playing music at high volume made it hard to converse. This is not a club. It is a restaurant and people want to be able to talk. The music should not be the feature, but rather it should be in the background. I’d also say that bar service has been great but table service was pretty thin. We were never offered second drinks and we really have to flag down the waiter for help.

Second experience was just as awesome as the first! Just like last time, the two of us did 2 starters, and one item from each category, and the flavors just popped, same as before, with the exception of the kimchee pancake with pork belly (needed acidity so was a bit flat tasting, but we still liked it). The cockatils are great, and the one I had went perfectly with every savory dish! Again, we sat at the counter, and service was perfect!

Disappointed the cracker served with beer is gone. Potato dumpling was not what I imagined but it didn’t stand out. As usual : fried chicken, cucumber salad, and short rib rice was amazing.
Was really looking forward to the potato
Pancake but the taro one was good with the toppings it came with.
Soju flights were good.

We received the most terrible service I’ve had in a long time. The food was ok, but I wouldn’t recommend getting the chips appetizer, which was soggy from the sauce they were tossed in. The cabbage pancake was drenched in super salty sauce, which I had to scrape most off of the pancake to be able to eat. If there wasn’t so much sauce it would have been good.

The most offensive part of dining here was the service. We ordered some drinks that never came. Some drinks that were ordered eventually came after the waitress came by our table 15 minutes later to ask if we still wanted the drink. The answer was yes, yes we did... One person in our party never got their food. When we finally asked the waitress about it after about an hour, she made lots of excuses instead of just apologizing. She said there were only two cooks in the kitchen and they were busy. However, the table next to us that got there after us had all of their food, and we suspected our food was accidentally given to them...

It would have been so easy to simply apologize and maybe comp the additional food that we never received after making it again, or comp some drinks. Or maybe just be nice instead of defensive. Instead, the waitress made lots of excuses after we let her know we’d like to cancel the rest of our orde, then asked us to double check our bill as she wasn’t sure if she accidentally charged us for things we never received, and then she also made a point of letting us know tip was automatically included since our party was 6 people. We already knew this, and this wasn’t the right approach. It felt like, hey, I messed up, and I probably got your bill wrong, and I don’t care about being kind to you because my tip is already included. When we left, she chased us out the front door to say thank you, have a good night, which felt very strange and condescending. Unfortunately, even though the food was interesting, my friends and I will never be back here because of the terrible experience we had.

Sluggish service for a mostly empty restaurant and shoddy, half assed food. How do you serve a rice bowl with half-cooked rice? Fine, somebody made a mistake cooking rice - it sometimes happens, but how did that then make it past the chef/expo? Do you even taste your food before sending it out to make sure it's good?
