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.

The food and service were fine, but the music was absurdly loud. I couldn’t wait to leave, and have no desire to return.

Amazing, you can watch your dish being prepared in front of you, and everything is incredibly flavorful! Beer is cans/bottles only, but excellent choices available.

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.

Wonderful first time meal at Revelry. Our only regret was that our stomachs are too small to taste everything! The fried chicken was a wonder, as were the greens and seaweed noodles. Can't wait to go back for more.

Revelry has become a favorite dinner spot. The Asian food is unique and always delicious. Sitting at the bar you can see the cooks in action. Great cocktails too.

DELISH! We loved Revelry. Probably one of my favorite meals I've had in PDX. We had the Scallop Fried Rice and the Seaweed Noodles. YUM!

Revelry is reliably great food in a casual bar restaurant- folks may miss just how good the food is because Revelry is so low key about it. One of Portland’s reliably great meals — and unlike, say, Han Oak, you can get a table tonight.
Highly recommended, although maybe thin pickings for vegans, check menu and be sure there’s enough that fits your dietary preferences

This place is amazing! The vibe is the best, they play old school hip hop and R & B which I love. The food is packed with flavor, each dish is phenomenal! If you’ve never been go immediately! Seriously!

The food was excellent and the cocktails were inventive and delicious. However, we would not return because of the very loud pop music blaring from the speakers. Very unfortunate.

Food was original and quality. It balanced well both in flavor and ingredients.

The service was helpful without being pushy. Focused, quick and anticipatory.

One main course took a bit too long to arrive, with one diner having to wait for the other to get served.
The music, while interesting, was LOUD, making dialogue not easy.

Such a fun place! The food is amazing and such a good value. Everything we got was delicious and we couldn’t decide what we liked best. The sautéed greens were a hit, the fried chicken was a mix of sweet/salty, the short rib rice bowl was a great size and had really good flavor, and the scallop fried rice was a surprising favorite with the asparagus addition.

Cocktails were amazing too! Mom loved the smooth operator and I enjoyed the Lay low.

My only recommendation- our food came out before our drinks (we did order them at the same time- so not a huge deal) but it would have been nice to split them out.

Also, I brought my parents and was concerned that the music would be too loud reading other reviews- my parents didn’t seem to have a problem (even when I asked)- would have loved to bring friends because it has a great vibe!

Will be back!!!

We shared small plates and entrees, in order to sample as much of the menu as we could. We particularly enjoyed the fried chicken, seaweed noodles, and the mu shu potstickers. The service was friendly and attentive. Our only complaint was over the noise level. This is a small space and the music (while good) was VERY loud. We get the theme of the place (boomboxes and an oversized cassette tape decorate the space), but it was nearly impossible to have any level of conversation with the volume it was played at. Just wish they had turned it down a touch.
