Lovely atmosphere and service but food was pretty mediocre for the price, especially for a special occasion. Tiny, barely bigger than a muddle sized oysters and whist tender the short ribs didn't have any flavor. Desert, salad and wine were nice.

We ate there before the theater at the Aurora.A pleasant enough place with good service.The onion soup was good. The lamb shank was plentiful and enough for two people, but not worth struggling through. Excellent lamb ruined by a heavy handed and witless cook. Same for the brown butter ice-cream. Who ever thought that fried butter in ice cream would please any one? They did okay with he expresso coffee. A great pity as it is really conveniently located.

Nice atmosphere with excellent farm to table food. Ricotta Gnuddi with mushrooms was savory satisfying vegetarian dish, and baby back ribs were falling off the bone tender and smoky. Will definitely go back.

This was for brunch, not dinner like I'm used to from Revival.

The food was high quality, but during our visit there was some expediting/timing issue in the kitchen. Add to that an apparently new server and it was a recipe for slow and inattentive service. The server kept putting drink orders and bills down at the wrong tables, water glasses sat empty for tens of minutes, and the server seemed unaware of food delays from the kitchen until we got a little rude about it - but we weren't the only ones complaining that morning about slow food delivery.

I never had such problems with Revival for dinner service. But the number of diners was low and so there was only that one inattentive server and their manager on the floor. I think if the server had more experience, they could have covered the number of tables with customers at them easily, but they were pretty much in the weeds, even with help from the floor manager.

It twas disappointing given how good my experiences have been with them for dinners.

Still, because we had about 1:45 hours set aside for a leisurely brunch, we weren't late for our matinee movie. But 1:45 hours is pretty long for a casual brunch.

The service, ambiance were both great. I loved the burrata app we got but everything else wasn't as good as I expected. I got the Box crab with risotto and the meat of the Box crab was almost liquidfied. It was clearly older and it's gastric juices have already had a field day with the body of the crab. We also got the duck confit dish and it was ok. It was slight salty but good.

Service started out great, but deteriorated after our order was placed. Different servers brought the dishes and at the end of the meal it was very difficult to get the bill. Food is OK but not outstanding

Enjoyed it thoroughly.
The street was busy and parking was a bit tough, but there is a parking garage a few blocks away ;)

Revival is my 'go to' place whenever I have an event to attend in Berkeley, usually the Berkeley Rep or the University Museum. It never disappoints in the quality of food and service, and my friends and I always love the fixed price 'theater' menu - delicious food, portioned appropriately so you can enjoy three course but not be in a food coma. Energetic and fun place to be, always!

party of 6, good food, good service, great place to have drinks and food for downtown Oakland location. Parking not that bad since a lot is one block away. Food was enjoyed by everyone (international group). Good wine selection.

Service was friendly. Joe was awesome and was able to accommodate a late addition to our group, and a slightly later reservation from our original. Food was very good. Didn't realize it was restaurant week, but ate off that menu. Had Osso Bucco - fabulous!
Would go again.
