Our third visit here..always outstanding, from the delivery of impeccable service to innovative sumptuous dishes offered in an historic and warm atmosphere. Alana, our server, was not only informative, engaging, humorous and very attentive in her service, but went out of her way to provide interesting information about the building and actually gave us a quick tour upstairs on a quiet evening. Above and beyond!

We had a wonderful time at Revival. Even though our reservations where a little behind we enjoyed talking with John the owner and spending time in their bar. The staff from the owner to bartenders and wait staff could not have been nicer and by the way, the food was amazing. My only disappointment was that I didn't get to try the meal I went there for but that was because the special sounded so delicious and it was. The good part was that now I have another reason to go back.

Enjoyed the lovely atmosphere and good service. It was a very enjoyable, relaxing evening. I particularly enjoyed the staff. It was obvious they each took pride not only in their job, but also the business establishment itself. Will return for another evening in the summer to check out the outdoor patio with live music.

Revival as a perfect Valentine’s Day weekend date night. The food was really good and worth every penny. What I really appreciated was that we we sitting at the table for nearly three hours without being rushed out. It was a very relaxing atmosphere and the staff was incredible. Highly recommended.

I wasn't crazy about the wine selection. Many were available by the bottle but very few by the glass. We sat upstairs and, although there was a heater on the other side of the room, my husband was uncomfortably cold the entire time.

This was our third time to Revival and it was Valentine's Day. We have enjoyed Revival on our first two visits, but we ordered off of the menu for those evenings. Unfortunately, I must have misread the information for the holiday. I knew there was a three course offering, but thought it said we could order off the menu as well. The staff was wonderful and the setting is nice...but we thought the food was a little off this last visit. We would not deter anyone from going and we will give it another try and hope it was just a fluke!

Excellent food and great service. The drinks were excellent as well. The pricing of the food is good for the value. Upscale place, the restaurant is an old funeral home, so it is multi-roomed and a very comfortable atmosphere. Small bar in the back with unique drinks. I had the Sage martini which was excellent, average to high priced, $10-$15 per drink. Feels like you are in a friend's home. I had the Pork Shank which was excellent...fall off the bone and very tender. For dessert, the lemon bar with black raspberry sherbert was outstanding. Highly recommend!!

This was my fourth time dining at Revival. While I have always been satisfied with the food, the service was not up to par like it has been in the past, and the drinks take quite a long time to receive. My son and daughter in law recently dined here for the first time and they said it took almost an hour for them to receive their drinks, that’s unacceptable. For the amount of people this restaurant draws, they should think about putting more people at the bar.

Food was excellent once we got some! The dinner took almost 3 hours, and a whole hour until we got an appetizer. If we had not aggressively sought someone to take our order we might still be there, lol. They said they were short handed, but it was a Saturday night so, they should have back up. Never a manager in sight to come by and check on the situation. We had to ask for a soup that was supposed to come before the salad that didn't, which is not the kitchen's fault. The poor waiter gave a free dessert, but he should have offered a round of drinks after the first hour without any food, but he never came over until the food came.

Every time we go here, I am more impressed. They change their menu each season, so when the winter menu was released we returned. Place was fairly busy, but service was fine. They had a pork shank, which my wife really liked and duck cassoulet. I have made cassoulet myself, several times, and no what a labor intensive dish it is to make,at least at home. Theirs was outstanding. Great duck. Lots of very good white beans. We heartily recommend both dishes. (The shrimp and grits is back as well.) This place is close to us, but it is worth a drive from another part of town. This is a neighborhood treasure.
