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.

We had a good server who explained things on the menu that we didn't understand, and she provided good service. Everything was delicious. My only disappointment was that the hostess was less than efficient. We arrived right on time at 6:00pm, and I checked in with my name and that we had a reservation for two. Apparently, she forgot or just didn't bother to check us in, which resulted in an email from Open Table that I hadn't shown up. I don't like to be lax about reservations, and this disturbed me. I would appreciate a word by you to Open Table letting them know the situation. Thank you.

It is an okay place, food is expensive for the amount of food. the service took a little longer and the server didn't try to clear the table when we finished our meal. Maybe they need more staff.

The food was most amazing - the flavors were to die for! The portions are large enough that we shared each dish easily, great for a date night! The staff was very friendly and professional, we sat at the end of the bar next to the kitchen and the chef talked with us a bit. Very cool place, highly recommend.

We sat at the bar on a Saturday night. The service was great - bartender and bar-back were both super personable and fun - food was amazing, and we had a great time!

The Korean Fried Chicken was certainly great, it was a little saltier than I remember on previous occasions. The shrimp and pork dumplings and cauliflower were outstanding, really enjoyable and the cauliflower was crisp on the outside and had a slightly smoky flavor to it (probably my favorite dish of the night). The kimchi was pretty standard and tasty. We loved the szechuan bolognese, it was the perfect balance of sweet and spicy, not overwhelming on the spicy but it was definitely there. All in all a good experience and I love the ambiance of the place. I wish the serving sizes were a bit bigger so the plates could truly be shareable without everyone only getting a bite or two.

Incredible food and cocktails all around, and the atmosphere was fun. Small place which kept it relatively quiet even though it was a crowded night for our time there. Will definitely be returning.

Cool place I have to give them some credit that New Year’s Eve has to be a challenge. But we arrived on time for a 9:15 reservation and our table wasn’t ready. We got a strange response when the four of us asked to get a drink at the bar while we waited (there were six open stools). We were sat relatively quickly and placed drink and app orders, then within about 15 minutes they informed us it was last call for food. I don’t think they should take reservations that close to closing the kitchen and should have been more accommodating to us getting drinks while waiting for a reservation. Hopefully some constructive feedback. Also - Fried chicken is amazing!

Our group loved the crispy cauliflower and the fried chicken in the happy hour menu. The wontons and scallop fried rice were also great! The ‘Heaven Belongs To You’ cocktail was unique and good- not too sweet.

Nice small pub/restaurant, in a not so great area. The bartenders were engaging, and the ambiance was good. But the table we were offered was way too small and cramped against the cash register area (we are normal sized.) The way the host handled the table situation was demonstrative of a lack of adequate training. The music was loud, but if you are not looking to have a comfortable conversation you should be ok. The decor was well done, but the trek to the bathroom was a long adventure (on another floor, they share it with the rest of the building it seems.) The food was unimaginative. As as example, the chicken wings were boneless, with super thick oily batter, and glopped on sauce. The pea tip salad we ordered was by far the best part of the meal. This is not a place I would recommend for a date night. Having said that, if you are just stopping by for a couple of drinks and pub food you should be alright. Considering how many places Portland has to offer, I would not recommend it or repeat a visit.

Food was good but very small portion sizes. The evening was an opportunity for my daughter and I to get caught up. The waiter couldn't wait to get us out the door. He was kind but impatient with us sitting and visiting. He continued to hover and remove everything from the table before we were ready to leave. The restaurant was nearly empty so it was not an issue of needing the table for other customers. Doubtful I will return.

I had been a couple times before, but I really wanted my friends to experience Tallboy Tuesday. The peanut brittle chicken is so delicious. I ended up getting a drink and then the fried cauliflower bowl on happy hour and didn’t even break $30. Will definitely be back. So good!

The fried chicken and greens were fantastic and the tofu dish as well. The rice cakes were unfortunately quite soggy with no crunch in the dish. The pancake also lacked a bit of flavor and was soggy. The flavors were excellent but had some issue with the texture. For dessert, the coconut fudgesicle was fun and tasty. I would definitely go back for the fun and friend chicken and greens! The staff was excellent!

We live out of town, in Central Oregon. But revelry is by far our favorite restaurant in the Portland area and each time we visit we make sure that we go. The food and service is always fantastic. We make sure that we always share it with anyone with us. They love it too!

We were disappointed in the food, compared to the handful of times we had been there in the past. The pork dumpling just average. The chicken did not have enough brittle on it. The seaweed crab noodles seemed overwhelmed by ginger. The best was the scallop fried rice. Music was too loud with pounding bass. On past visits the place was jammed with people, very lively. This Sat. night totally empty.....and disappointed no fish and chips. Not worth the 90 bucks. Service was just ok. drinks average. Disappointing.
