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.

    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.

    The service was slow, we waited 30 minutes for our meal after we ordered. When the food finally arrive it was barely warm and rather tasteless.

    WONDERFUL experience!! Our first time to eat at Revivalist and we will definitely be back- SOON!! The service was impeccable, the menu and food great-something for every taste!, and the setting was lovely. We were not rushed even though our food promptly came out. And there was a menu item for every pocketbook.

    We had a great experience. They were running behind so we hung at the bar for about 10 before out table opened. Tables are a little close together so hard for an intimate conversation but not terrible. Food was excellent and service was good.

    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.

    The food had potential but was not very warm nor plated in an appetizing way. For the price we paid, we were looking for ALL areas of our experience to be covered. We normally pay this price for a dinner experience at Hall’s Chophouse in Nashville, TN or Charleston, SC and it would be well worth it because the food is presented nicely and is warm, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the service staff is amazing! We just didn’t get all of that at The Revivalist.

    A real expensive disappointment. Made a reservation for their Valentines Day pre fixe meal, $85/plate, $30/ per wine pairing + 20% gratuity. They brought out what we thought was an aperitif, essentially whipped cream in a tiny aluminum tin and the first wine pairing. Unfortunately we quickly figured out it was not an aperitif, but rather the dessert for the table next to us. A manager came out and apologized and promised "a full glass" of wine and a dessert to go. Then they brought out the " next course" - however, it was another screw up, actually was the second course. We were smart enough to send that back and get the correct first course, which turned out to be poorly cooked (read overdone) red shrimp. Additionally, the wine courses were now screwed up. They then brought out the correct second course, but again, the wine pairing was screwed up. Finally the main course - unfortunately, my steak was very underdone (I asked for medium well (don't judge), and it was rare, bloody plate). The scallops were fishy and overdone (ironically). They then bring out the dessert in a paper to go bag (since we had dessert at the top of the meal) and the bill. Note, they also brought out the full bill, but we received no dessert wine course nor the complimentary glass of wine we were promised. I asked about those omissions, and they offered to bring out the dessert wine course (to drink with my bagged dessert I guess) and never brought the full glass of wine the manager had promised. I passed on the dessert wine course (moscato) paired with a paper bag, and they offered to adjust the bill. They came back with the new bill, knocking a grand total of $15 off the total cost ($15 was half the cost of the wine course - a deal I guess since I only missed out on 25% of the wine course). Essentially, they knocked $7.50 off a $300 meal (still charging the full 20% gratuity despite the ridiculously screwed up service). Disappointment that screwed up Valentines Day dinner.

    Sunday Feb 11, 2024 was my first experience at The Revivalist. I can’t say enough positives about my/our experience. We (my two sisters and I) had a wonderful server who handled all of my sisters’ multiple requests with grace and a “of course we can!” mentality. She kept everyone’s orders and nuances straight . She gave great recommendations. The food was outstanding! I got the house-made corned beef hash which was absolutely delicious. My sisters both got a hamburger which were out of this world! Great ambiance, food and service. I’ll be going back.

    The food was incredible. My wife and I both had wedge salad and the filet. I eat steak almost everywhere I go. I guess I’m just a meat and potatoes kind of guy. I can honestly say the filet I had here was as probably the best steak I have ever had. Servers were great as well.

    The duck confit was way too greasy and way overcooked. The greens had too many large stems, and the hash was borderline burnt. Very disappointing. I won’t recommend and I would discourage anyone I know from patronizing.

    Disappointed in the cinnamon roll and the biscuits. They were not fresh as they were hard when cut into. Also the waitress was not very personable and we had to ask for drinks to be refilled. Definitely could’ve been a better brunch overall. It was our girls day out and it was my idea to go there.

    Our entire family LOVES Revivalist! We recommend them constantly and love taking clients there to celebrate our real estate closings. The service is always top notch; the food is always fabulous; the atmosphere is quiet and we can actually talk with one another and enjoy our time together, unlike many restaurants; we love having valet parking. Can't recommend them too highly! BEST RESTAURANT DOWNTOWN!!!

    I’m visiting from California and this was one of the best brunches I’ve had in Huntsville. The food was fresh and tasty but without overpowering sauces and gravies. Just the right amount of food. Beautiful location and decor. Wait staff was fun, attentive and efficient.
