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.

    I enjoyed the food and the ambiance of the place we had been there before for Mother’s Day brunch. Service was excellent, at one point the bar seemed to get a little backed up and drinks took a bit longer to come out but that’s me just being nit picky. All in all an excellent date night restaurant and location for our little staycation in Huntsville

    My daughter ordered the steak frites- medium and it came to her more rare and my friend who ordered the filet - rare and it came medium. Probably just a little mix up and so they just swapped their meat entree. For dessert I ordered the lemon tartlet and I felt like it was too tart and too runny- soupy. I did express my opinion on the tartlet and they graciously took it off my bill. Sassa our waitress was adorable and we enjoyed her service:

    The food was about average for a brunch buffet; however, the service was absolutely awful. My party and I had to find someone to ask every single time we needed beverage refills. We also had to ask for someone to collect our plates so that we would have room at the table to revisit the buffet. I have been to this restaurant a total of 6 times now and the service always leaves something to be desired. This time was absolutely atrocious though and I will likely not return. So disappointing.

    We went out n New Years Eve for dinner. This isn’t totoslly against thr restaurant. I just think this isn’t our type of thing. They served a 5-course meal and a lot of the food on the menu just wasn’t our thing. I get small portions for course meals, but 2 scallops was all my wife got for the main entree. The worst thing about the night was that the hotel staff decided to clean the bathroom adjacent to a packed restaurant at 10:30 on New Years Eve which meant no one could use the bathroom for like 20 min. Poor management in my opinion.

    Went for their New Year’s Eve dinner special, pre booked set menu available for the night. Reservation was at 9pm. Servers and hostesses were great but by 10 pm we had only had the first course. The kitchen was very slow in getting each course out. By 1130 we had just gotten the fourth main course and had just asked for the check and the last course to go. It was still a nice evening and the food was very good but even when the restaurant was almost empty at the end of the night the kitchen was very slow at getting food out. With a set menu the kitchen should be able to get these items out at a reasonable time.

    We reserved a high top for the special NYE prix fixe 5-course dinner, but an hour into our reservation had only received our first course. We had been told 20 mins prior to leaving that our next course would be coming, plus ordered another cocktail but never saw those. I finally flagged down someone & told them the situation & left.

    The food was decent. We did ask for drinks well before main course and didn’t get until half way through dinner. Steak was cold by time wine came. Atmosphere was good. Our sever was good but he was the only one which is probably why our drinks came late/we’re forgotten. Not his fault at all having been run ragged. Steak frites was decent, nothing I’d drive back to Huntsville for. Shrimp n grits were good.

    This was our 4th time trying this restaurant. The menu selection isn't large, so I don't understand the inconsistency of the dishes. I ordered the exactly same dinner for visit #3 and #4 but for some reason #3 was outstanding and #4 was mediocre. I had the filet mignon (medium rare) that was over cooked and my garlic herb fries were luke warm. The bar has a good selection of alcohol and mixed drink options. I would recommend dining here, but there is a 50% chance you will be disappointed or elated.

    Enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner with my bride of 32 years and could not have asked for better experience. Izzy was a great waiter. The hush puppies were delicious appetizer. My wife had the Salmon and I had the filet. Both of the meals were scrumptious. The atmosphere was perfect romantic setting. We will definitely return.
