Revelry is the collaboration among Seattle chefs, Rachel Yang + Seif Chirchi, of Joule, Revel, Trove, with Eric and Karen Bowler, owners of popular Portland lounges Fortune and Tube. A meal at Revelry is similar to one at Revel—only the fun can be turned up a notch and continue late into the night if desired. The restaurant’s celebratory atmosphere includes curated playlists and live DJs spinning records. In addition to classic Revel dishes such as Kimchi pancake with pork belly and Dungeness crab with seaweed noodles, Revelry offers small, shareable snacks—perfect for a long night spent lingering over cocktails and good music.

So delicious! We enjoyed the dining around Portland deal. The deal came with kimchi, yams, carrots, fried chicken, Dan Dan noodles, pork rice bowl and lava cake....portions were generous. We were so happy to have had enough for lunch the next day. Can’t wait to go back!

Went there for dining month and the service was top notch. We we with two young children and they were totally accommodating and even asked if we need to adjust the spice level for the kiddos. The cocktails were great, food was plentiful, and ambiance was nice. The friend chicken was delicious and paired with the ginger chicken rice bowl, simply delicious. Loved it.

This was the first time we've dined at Revelry - great food, good music - excellent drinks - good service. It's not the place for everyone as the music is definitely R- Rated Hip Hop which I really like, but I could see other guests that were "uncomfortable" with the explicit lyrics. Probably should have a warning label of some kind. I wouldn't have wanted to take a work guest there. But the food was outstanding!!

Went for Portland dining month- outside of one of the appetizers you really could look elsewhere. They lead with the fried chicken with peanut brittle which honestly is it’s shining star. Unfortunately, they lead with this which sets up the palet for more bang in flavor but the follow up appetizers are bland and do not match up to the fried chicken. Ironically they go with strong flavors like Pickling and horseradish but it’s very bland after a heavy vinegar based spicy chicken. Lastly is a noodle dish I had and it again had lots of pickle and vinegar and veggies and even diced apple which seemed both like a lovely sweet addition and an after thought to finish what they had it in the kitchen. It was out of place. The chili was almost spicy. Dessert was a tiny drizzled mint guava pop. The drizzle overpowered the pop and the sprinkles were worthless-like why? And the mint you could smell and not taste. I won’t return to this place unless it’s for the chicken. Not worth my chance at Portland dining month.

Hipster Korean food. I took hs students from rural Oregon. Loved the fried chicken, of course. The rest was very tasty for me, not so much for the kids.

The food was excellent. I went for the portland dining month thing and it is such a great value for 33 bucks. I left full for certain. The chicken is so yummy and the egg yolk on the rice bowl is magic. I got the molten lava cake for dessert and it was mouth watering. The cream on top had me savoring each bite. My only complaints are that the cocktail I got was not very good, the place is too loud, and I did see the bartender randomly touching the mouth portion of wine glasses when they were bored. Overall very good and I will return.

We love Revelry but had not so good service this time. We had a reservation for 6:45 but didn't get seated until 7:30. The food took another 25 minutes, not good at all. Although we love the food, we don't want another experience like this...

Fermented Chili Sauce -- that was what made dinner excellent. The food itself was extremely greasy. If someone were to go, I would say order Mama's Spicy Fried Chicken and use lots of chili sauce because that is the only thing worth it at Revelry.

This is a great spot for happy hour - they take reservations and they have a really nice selection of food, including their famous peanut brittle fried chicken. Drinks are good and the vibe is trendy and upbeat usually with hop hop playing pretty loud. There are some parking spaces on the side of the building too!

Second time visiting Revelry, both experiences were exceptional! This time we made a reservation in advance and arrived very early to find our table ready for us to be seated. Part of our group included a visitor from CO who raves it was his favorite place to snack in Portland. A DJ mixed in great beats from 90s and current hip hop. We loved splitting up all of the dishes to share, favorites that come to mind are the fried chicken with peanut brittle and the rice cakes. My rum and coconut cocktail was divine! Lastly, try out each of the sauces, the flavor combos are nearly limitless!

Small but impressively interesting menu. There were 4 of us and we all chose different entrees.

The short ribs were judged excellent, as were the dan dan noodles. The tuna in the tuna bowl was fresh tasting, and just barely seared. I had the 'seaweed noodles' which were supposed to have crab, but it was pretty well hidden - dish tasted good, but was a little mysterious.

Surprisingly, the standout dish that every raved about was the sauteed greens appetizer - really delicious - we had to ask about the sauce ingredients.

Dinner last Thursday started with two cocktails: “Blood in Blood Out,” a gin, nigori sake, falernum, lime, and hibiscus cocktail that was very good, highlighted by the very large hibiscus tea ice cube in the center. My husband had a coconut-infused rum with fernet and mint drink, which was kind of like a Mojito and kind of not. He gave it a four.

We started with the Cucumber Hijiki Salad, which was excellent, followed by the fried chicken, which was as wonderful as you’ve heard. It’s spicy, sweet, bite-size, perfect. Just as we were finishing the chicken though, two diners were seated next to us who had apparently decided to bathe in their cologne. I was immediately struck with a migraine bad enough that I thought we were going to need to leave without finishing dinner. The manager, however, immediately leapt into action and made a fragrance-free space for us behind the bar.

That allowed us to finish our dinner—the Seaweed Noodle and a Short Rib Bulgogi Rice. Everything was very good, but with the migraine I just wanted to eat and get out of there, so I can’t report anything about those dishes.

I want to extol the actions of the manager again, though—she was responsive, sympathetic, and really stepped up when the problem with our seating arose.

Food was not as good as previous visits to Revelry. The blackened tuna bowl was less flavorful this time, and the fried cauliflowers was also not as good. The soju flight wasn't as good either, as all three flavors were sweet. Having at least one flavor that is not sweet would be better balanced. Finally, after about 1 hr and 40 minutes at our table, the staff asked us to leave because another group had a reservation. Upon leaving, we noticed that the front half of the restaurant was mostly empty, including two long tables that sat idle. This was really annoying and will affect my desire to return.
