Revivalist is a throwback to a historic Huntsville tavern that once occupied this location and embodied the parlor culture of the era. Today, generous portions of old-time hospitality and attentive service are served with a menu that is considerably more modern—inspired by European classics and American regionalism.

    Went to Revivalist for Mother’s Day. It was so great!! In the food wasteland that is Huntsville, Revivalist stands out in all the best ways! I got the lobster and grits (from the Mother’s Day menu) and our mom got the Jackson breakfast. Delicious- all around. Great, attentive service without giving the “hovering” vibe. No detail was too small and our server was just amazing! The price matches the quality in every sense!

    Went there for Mother's Day treat for my wife. We were promptly seated and met our waiter soon afterwards. We asked for coffee with cream and Splenda and he brought coffee. We had to ask three times for the Splenda. I ordered the simple bacon and eggs meal which was prepared the way I asked. The one slice of toast I received was dry and I had to ask a couple of times to get some jam. 18 dollars for bacon and eggs (plus 20% service charge) is a bit pricey for what I received.

    I would rate this restaurant as just being OK. It was loud inside. The beet salad was fantastic but the filet was not hot and an inferior cut of meat, not as tender as you would expect a $53 filet. We also had the salmon and it was good but nothing to rave about. Overall, the food was overpriced for the quality.

    We booked an early table (5:30pm) as we had an event to attend so the restaurant was fairly quiet but patrons started filtering in as we ate. Ambience was good and the service was exceptional. We ordered appetizers and cocktails first (Wedge Salad and Crab and Shrimp Hushpuppy) and all were great. For entrees we ordered the Scallops and the Duck. Scallops were perfectly cooked but the Duck was a little under seasoned. The accompanying vegetables were fantastic however! I can definitely recommend Revivalist for a great date night!

    Our waitress was really terrible. We had a party of 8. She did not check on us, when she walked by us, she would tilt her head away from us so we had to call out to get more water. She would insert herself into our conversation and made an inappropriate joke to our 13 yr old. The apps were good but 5 in our party ordered the steak frites and no one liked it. It was cold and undercooked. We ordered my daughter’s medium and it was rare. We asked them to cook it more and it came back slightly more done but more cold than it had been. Definitely not worth the $700 bill.

    A rather overpriced and underwhelming dining experience seated right next to the bar with a room full of open tables. The taste of the food was nothing special and I actually would prefer complimentary hotel breakfast to what I had here. The ratio of gravy to biscuit was totally off as far as the oversized biscuit in comparison to the lack of gravy on top. Skip this one for free hotel breakfast or just go elsewhere.

    Party of six for brunch, food came out in waves, w one order of eggs coming out after 5 minutes of everyone else being served. While food was tasty, some had to be rewarded, service was slow as well.

    I had one of the most delicious cocktails I’ve ever had. It was called the Brooklyn. I’ll be dreaming of it!Our meals were fantastic. My broccolini could have cooked a minute or two longer, but maybe that’s my terrible teeth complaining. I had the salmon, and my husband had the steak frites, and we both enjoyed the side of Brussels sprouts we got, which is one of the few ways I can get my husband to eat a vegetable. I’m glad I picked out Revivalist for our visit to Huntsville.

    Excellent food, ambiance, and the wait staff were very attentive. The kitchen was incredibly slow, 40 minutes from seating to get appetizers and over an hour for entrees. When the food did arrive, it was excellent. Fortunately, we were not in a rush and enjoyed the evening.

    Mimosa descriptions on what they were making them with was inaccurate… indicated a cava, but was actually a Prosecco. Table size was way too small for four people…would’ve been OK for two…food was well seasoned. Service was in attentive. Overall, not worth the price nor the time…

    Food was good and flavorful. Had the broccolini with my meal and it was very tough. We went on Easter so not busy but service was still a little slow. I would definitely try again when it is not a holiday. Drinks were good, but not consistent.

    This was our second time eating here and we will definitely go again. We tried the aged ribeye and the pork shank and both dishes were exceptional. My husband and son enjoyed a pour of whiskey they had been wanting to try and my cocktail recommended by our server did not disappoint. It was our son’s 25th birthday and we were pleased he got a dessert on the house. They made our night of celebration very special.

    This was a great place for brunch for my husband’s low-key birthday (husband isn’t very keen on attention). It was just us two. The restaurant was super understanding when we arrived at the end of the 15 min grace period for our reservation - we aren’t from the area and were having trouble with parking. The food and cocktails were great. Highly recommend the fried green tomatoes. My husband raved about his americano. The service was awesome, everyone was SO NICE. They embodied southern hospitality - and we are from Nashville! All around a great brunch, would love to try it for dinner soon!

    Deplorable - really horrible service. Food was a little above average with the exception of ;the salmon being dry, veggies being cold, rare steak was cold - not just in the center but the entire steak - all after a 2 hour wait. The assistant manager "Joshua" came up to apologize prior to the meal being delivered saying the kitchen was "backed up". The waiter was never seen again and the final tab ($186.39) was delivered. Mind you - no apologies and no comp. I normally tip 20% for average service but in this instance I was over gracious and tipped $.61. I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend much less a person I disliked.

    One of the best dinners we have had here in Huntsville. Started off with the melted goat cheese and Brie. Absolutely loved it. Only wish they would provide a little more bread, as there was still plenty of dip remaining. We had the pork shank and steak and frites. Both we made to perfection. Hard to say which was better. The steak had amazing flavor and the pork was stewed perfectly. Service was outstanding! Not a place for an intimate dinner as the tables are very close together.

    The server was OK. She took a long time coming back to the table. We ordered our food. It took a long time to come out when I questioned her about it. She said it would be shortly. I think she forgot to put it in when I got the food, it was cold and burnt brought it to her attention. She didn’t make any moves to replace it, I just ate it and paid for it . The food was also overpriced.

    We dined here on Valentine’s, for which they only offered a prix fixe menu. Overall, the meal was underwhelming, especially for a $300 meal for two (which included a wine pairing). The tempura shrimp appetizer had pieces of shell still on the shrimp. The very small salad lacked flavor. The entrees we had (my wife had filet and I had scallops) were the highlights of the night. However, we had to send my wife’s steak back (which we never do) because it was so much under her desired temperature. Overall, the meal wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t up to the level we were hoping for. We plan to go back when there is not a special event and give it another try.
