The food was delicious and the service was great. Our server was very attentive and the food was top notch. My husband is vegan so it would be great to maybe have one more vegan option. The drinks were great with the exception of the Thomas J which tasted like salt water and sand, the four liquors in the drink do not belong together, it just felt like there was too much going on.

Menu was refreshingly brief. Enough variety without excess. Food was good, not great. Main dining area was noisy when nearly full and could have been cooler on an early July evening.

Food was great, service was great, restaurant is adorable. Only complaint is the lack of air conditioning; it was a very hot and humid evening so it became quite uncomfortable indoors by the end of the meal.

Went for an impromptu date night- got a quiet table by the fireplace, loved the old books - cute accent pieces. Side room we were in was quiet however the rest of the restaurant was very, very, very loud. Salmon was perfect, no complaints. Husband had hanger steak special, he said it was "ok". Cheese plate...I would not recommend, only 2 selections and both were not great. Bar has decent wine but really limited scotch selection. Would definitely go back though! Price point was reaaonable.

Absolutely wonderful! My husband and I had dinner for our anniversary and we were very impressed with this "new" neighborhood gem! It was as good (or better) than most downtown restaurants, and convenient for those who are commuting from the North of Pittsburgh/Sewickley Area. Excellent food, impeccable service, great location. And the prices were very reasonable! We will be back!!

Very warm inside and staff was overwhelmed by a large party upstairs. Service very slow and items - like bread and water while waiting - were not delivered, although offered and requested. When food arrived it was very good and the building looked lovely. The interior, however, was uncomfortable warm.

Decided to go for brunch. Parking is bad and there is no lot for customers only street parking. To work around this we went when they first opened. No issue with parking! Food was good. Nice variety. Our waitress was great. Never had to ask for a thing! Will go back for brunch or maybe try lunch next time.

Love this place and that it is walking distance to my home. Really really hope they will let us have pets on the porch/patio or somewhere outside. All four couples we were with Saturday want to come back but would like to be able to sit outside and bring there pets. It’s the way it is now they are people’s family/children. I would have to miss out on enjoying your wonderful establishment and summer nights in PITTSBURGH because I can’t stop by and have a drink and a bite when I am walking in Bellevue with my dogs. Love the food always wonderful. Service was a little slow but not terrible. New people I think work g out the kinks I hope.

Had brunch here a few times which was very good. Had dinner this week with my wife. Great cocktails. I had the pork chop which was just amazing. The sweet potatoes on the side just exploded with flavor. My wife had the steak special which was cooked perfectly and tasted great with the sauce and gorgonzola. My only recommendation would be to lose the 2 seat table in front of the fireplace in the room to the right of the entrance. The hostess tried to jam us in there and it's right on top of a 4 seat table which was occupied by 4 large people. All other tables in the room were empty so I asked to sit at one of them.

Not the place for a nice romantic evening. Large tables are too close to the smaller tables. The atmosphere is crowded and the noise causes everyone to have to shout at each other. Food was fine, but overpriced.

We were celebrating a special occasion and Revival on Lincoln did not disappoint. The food was great, the place is beautiful and our server was very personable. There was a large table nearby that began to ramp up the noise level considerably - to the point where we could hardly hear each other. However, I'm not sure what you could do to alter this situation.

I love the building, it is beautiful. I cannot day enough wonderful things about how awesome the food is. It is VERY LOUD! So loud that it is difficult to have a conversation. Sound buffers would help - it it because of the openness and wood floors. I specified no pecans on my salad and trusted this would be the case. As I was eating my salad, I noticed that there were pecans - I am very allergic to nuts. This was incredibly distressing. It would have been nice for my replacement meal yo have priority and come out quicker instead of waiting an extended period of time. More training needs to happen so this does not occur again.

Although small, the restaurant was lovely. Great job reviving! Our server was very attentive and helpful. The food was very good. Everything is a la carte and a bit pricey but delicious. It was busy, so we waited a bit for our food but it was perfect because we wanted to take our time and enjoy the evening without feeling rushed like you do in so many chain restaurants. I would definitely recommend and return.

As usual the food was amazing. We started with the smoked tomato baguette, which is absolutely delicious and flavorful. The roasted butternut squash and grilled broccoli is my favorite and has such amazing flavor I highly recommend it. My mom had one if the specials that evening, the steak with roasted vegetables. Also fabulous!

This was an excellent date night for us! From the moment we walked in until we were finished with our dessert, the experience exceeded my expectations. The food was absolutely marvelous and presented so beautifully; including the bread, soup, main course (I had the special - flank steak and my wife had the Braised Short Rib) and dessert. The building is unique and the remodeling makes this a really classy restaurant. We will definitely be back!
