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.

    Our server was very friendly and helpful. He had a wonderful taste in red wine suggestions. He hit the nail on the head with wine and dessert combo. The new chocolate dessert that had just been premiered the day before was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be going back.

    Service was timely and the restaurant felt cozy. The food was mediocre. Pasta was undercooked and overly salted. The S’mores dessert was ok but not served warm and the portion size was underwhelming. For the price, I expected better food. I have had comparable meals at chain restaurants - of course those lack the ambience. This is a typical hotel restaurant.

    Service was great. I had the salmon that was supposed to be Cajun and my husband had fried chicken. Both lacked seasoning. No salt, no flavor. Salmon was cooked medium which was good. We also had hush puppies and Brussels. Both were okay. We won’t be back.

    It was our first time last night. I noted we were there for our anniversary but were sat at a small table behind the hostess station. For $150pp I was expecting more than what was served. The portions were more like tapas and not very flavorful. Nothing gave a wow factor. It was really noisy at the beginning. Lots of people with the tv playing a football game gave the ambiance of an upscale sports bar. Definitely not recommended for an intimate dinner.

    Great atmosphere, service was acceptable. However, the food was very underwhelming. Every bit of it needed salt. Very surprising considering this is a restaurant, food was cooked well and to the proper temperature; however under seasoned. we will likely not be back.

    The food was not well prepared. The cabbage rolls had lentil beans that were not Cooked enough and were crunchy. The salmon was slightly burnt on top and the there was nosauce was and therefore dry. The carpaccio didn’t have enough Parmesan , the bread was gooey, and not enough capers. It would have been good to have some small greens on the Plate to provide some visual interest. It looked like a big slab of red beet covering the plate On the good side, the wine list was really really nice and we had a terrific white burgundy. Service staff was very pleasant. It was a birthday dinner but strangely even though we ordered dessert there was no candle. The The crème brûlée was very cold underneath the glaze. Should be served at room temperature. We would like to come back but the chef and the kitchen need to up their game

    The service was pretty good and the ambience was very nice. The food was absolutely not worth the price. My husbands steak came out prepared wrong which was disappointing but not a deal breaker. The staff was quick to correct the issue. When they returned with the steak cooked properly they forgot the mushrooms that went on top. At that point we were past correcting their mistake again. The coffee was beyond watered down and terrible. Speaking of water our glasses remained empty far too long for such a pricey restaurant. The service was extremely slow which was strange considering the restaurant was nowhere near at capacity. Everyone we spoke with was lovely but it is not worth the expense. There are at least 4 restaurants within walking distance that are far superior in both price and product. Hopefully they get the kinks worked out as it’s got potential but not even close to meeting it.

    Pros- the decor and space is warm and inviting. The server was attentive and kind. Cons- limited menu items, i asked to sub out mushrooms on steak entree for another side and was told it’s not possible to sub out items. They no longer have risotto for the halibut entree it’s been replaced with grits. Salad was good but there were no bread/roll options to accompany . There were so many small things that were off about the dining experience. When you dine at a place like this there are expectations for quality and service that are present from the customer. It would be helpful for a front of house person to ask for feedback and make some adjustments.

    This is an amazing restaurant with great ambiance, service, and European style menu! Our Thanksgiving venison dinners and Schug wine selection were fantastic. They’re not short handed as are many restaurants in town, and in fact have outstanding servers. We were treated as valuable clients, very refreshing. We are fortunate to have such an upscale restaurant here. Some of the best restaurants in cities we visit are in landmark hotels, as is this outstanding choice.

    The staff seemed disorganized. Overall the food was quite disappointing, especially when considering the price. Our spinach salad lacked flavor and the spinach did not appear to be fresh. The filet mignon was cooked well, but was under seasoned. The mashed potatoes were underwhelming and the broccolini was burnt. The one enjoyable dish was a dessert consisting of strawberries and whipped cream with sweet shortbread croutons. My wife and I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Well who would think Huntsville can be hip but Revivalist is true to its name. Start w nice ambiance, good Manhattan to begin evening. Follow up with sweet East Coast oyster in special chef blend!! (Public service announcement: if you need cocktail sauce you don’t like oysters, go back to your Long John’s Fries shrimp.) We had the chicken with mushrooms and collard greens. Absolutely sublime! Drop the mike

    Great food! It is expensive on par with a high end steak house. The service was excellent and very professional; employees clearly enjoy their workplace and want to provide customers with high quality food and service. Must try the the deconstructed S'more for dessert.
