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.

    We had a wonderful dinner, the service was spectacular, and they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The bill, however, was outrageous and not in line with comparable meals we’ve had in downtown Huntsville.

    Wanted to love this place. Big day planned for brunch to celebrate my son’s 21st birthday. Really nothing negative to say but guess I’m more disappointed…maybe because I had high hopes. Food was okay, server was nice but overall service needs work. I do plan to go back, but will probably just be for cocktails and appetizers. Hope it gets better!

    The food was fair at best. Nothing unique in flavor though were plated beautifully. Ambiance and service were good. Price was fair when taking in the whole experience of the restaurant. Classy place and good service, but the food lacked luster.

    Revivalist is a fantastic date night for couples or for small groups. Their bar is open to patrons waiting on tables or they can sit to eat plus drink. Ambiance is pretty awesome and inside a hotel in downtown Huntsville. I want to point out that Revivalist can stand alone and you don’t know you are in a hotel. They have a beautiful mural with outdoor lighting for when it’s spring and fall. I ordered a glass of wine while we waited for our table and my husband had a Sidecar. Our bartender suggested another wine if I had plans to eat fish or shellfish for dinner. Nice touch considering we were not eating at the bar. Our server, Dylan was excellent and apologized for the kitchen being backed up with our entrees. Of course, that’s not his fault. Both of us had the grilled romaine salad and the pimento cheese dressing was so good. I had shrimp and grits for my entree and it was delicious. I wish it came out with a thick slice of French bread to dip in and sip up the sauce. My husband had the filet and said it was pretty good. He kept our water glasses full and my husband had a glass of wine with his dinner. Dessert was the flourless chocolate cake for me which was yummy and delectable. My husband had the buttermilk chess pie and although I liked my 1 bite, he didn’t like it all.

    Nice, classy and clean spot. The food was very good—4/5 stars because my friend and I both were hoping for less done eggs (on her hamburger and my salmon bennies) as requested. But other than that she, her fiancé, and I all enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and the service very much.

    Revivalist - A Captivating Spanish Wine Dinner Experience I recently had the pleasure of dining at Revivalist for their highly anticipated Spanish wine dinner, and I must say, it was an extraordinary culinary adventure. From the moment I walked through the doors, the ambiance and warm hospitality enveloped me, setting the stage for an evening filled with tantalizing flavors and exquisite pairings. The centerpiece of the evening was a sumptuous five-course meal that showcased the culinary prowess of the chefs at Revivalist. The star of the show was undeniably the pork osso buco, which was masterfully prepared and flawlessly presented. The meat was incredibly tender, succulent, and bursting with rich flavors that melded harmoniously with the accompanying ingredients. It was a true masterpiece, and every bite left me yearning for more. The selection of Spanish wines that accompanied each course was nothing short of exceptional. The sommelier's expertise was apparent as they guided us through a thoughtfully curated wine list, perfectly complementing the flavors of each dish. From robust reds to crisp whites, each pour enhanced the dining experience and elevated the flavors of the meal to new heights. The attention to detail and presentation of each dish was a testament to the culinary artistry at Revivalist. Each course was a delightful exploration of Spanish cuisine, incorporating traditional flavors and innovative techniques. The chefs truly showcased their skill and creativity, leaving me in awe with every plate that was set before me. The overall experience at Revivalist was nothing short of wonderful. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and passionate about the food and wine they served. The ambiance was inviting, with an elegant and intimate atmosphere that made the evening feel truly special. If you have the opportunity to attend one of Revivalist's themed dinners, I highly recommend it. The Spanish wine dinner was a captivating journey for the senses
