Really interesting spices in the dishes and great bartender and bar menu.
Delicious salad, soggy pizza. Great and friendly wait staff
With a low-lit upscale style pub feel, Revolution House offers a unique small menu with delicious entrees and fun cocktails. Sitting on the roof in the off season is warm and comfortable, and the booths and bar indoors are cozy as well. Would recommend anyone stop by and try out this neighborhood classic.
We sat outside early with no other people which was great and peaceful. Our server however also decided that since there were no other people he didn’t need to do much, never checked in, messed up our order and was just pretty lacking. The downstairs bartender however was INCREDIBLE. He was friendly, personable, made good drinks and was on top of everything. I would definitely go back just to hang with him.
The food was delicious! Our table enjoyed the Mexican corn and croquette dishes. The cocktails were a bit on the sweeter side, but still enjoyable. The waitress was a little overzealous in clearing our table, often before we were finished eating the shared plates. I would recommend this location to friends.
Very good food! Cool vibe in Old City! Staff was nice, food came quick and it was delicious.
Great happy hour prices good service excellent appetizers
Delicious chicken taco!!!
The food is really good for a night out with the girls/guys! I would highly recommend the tacos!!
Sadly didn’t find food that tasty. Chicken kebabs were very salty
Food and drinks are fantastic!
Great vibe and Ambience .
Our waiter Dakota was an absolute bummer.
Any questions asked seemed Bothersome - for a waiter pretty Unattentive .
Perhaps he was having a bad day.
Nevertheless the restaurant is absolutely fantastic had a really good time and I definitely will come back.
Very accommodating attention to COVID protocols.
Ate outside on rooftop deck.
Excellent waitress Gabby and staff.
Food was delicious as were the drinks.
Will definitely recommend and return.
The setting was great! The weather was fantastic so sitting up on the deck was a great place to be. The food was good. I was $100 lighter going out the door having purchase 4 entrees and a dessert. I'm not used dropping a Hondo on a meal but I guess that's a fair value. I still give it a recommendation for the experience.
Not a ton of options on the menu, service and food were fine. Good for a quick place to grab a bite but not really for a big night out.
The reservation was honored on time and the food was excellent. I had the Revolution Smash Burger with the Ivy in Flower and both were perfectly prepared. We were a party of four and the other menu selections were the Moonlight Over Port and the chicken sandwich. Would definitely return to try other menu selections.
Great outdoor restaurant setting overlooking 2nd and Market. Food was fresh and prepared well. Oven roasted pineapple dessert was awesome.
We loved the covered roof deck, great atmosphere, food was good as well as the service!
The roof garden at Revolution House is a lovely place, even on an afternoon when rain was predicted. The Happy Hour menu is a great value, so be sure to ask for that menu.
Rooftop garden is awesome! Whole place is quite noisy, especially inside
Perfect location on rooftop dining porch on a really beautiful July night! Tacos were great for sharing. The porch is loud but you’re outside so it didn’t really affect anything. Definitely would recommend porch to the street dining. Service was prompt and attentive. Would def go back.
Ambience was great! I loved the atmosphere. Food was ok.
We are just visiting Philadelphia and we booked a table here not knowing what to expect. The staff was amazing and the food was great. I highly recommend the potato croquettes as an appetizer and the s’more blonde was absolutely delicious. The drinks were also great. The atmosphere on the patio was really great too. Definitely recommend.
Love the food and the vibe
Was an amazing experience with my friends! We all love the food and the service is always amazing.
Service was slow and poor. We ordered appetizers that would've come out after our meals so we canceled them. One of our diners has celiac and our waiter was not confident in what was gluten free and the sodas had too much syrup in them.
Some food portions were off balance, but overall very tasty. Service was slow I think because they were busy which is a good sign for them. The outdoor seating area is really nice!
Food was just ok, servers overwhelmed, noisy environment
Nice ambiance, friendly staff. Food was just ok. Chicken was dry and over cooked. Falafel was dry.
Food was mediocre at best and the server was rude. Nice ambiance though.
Great food and views for the 4th of July weekend!
Great ambiance, food, drinks and service. Had our 17th wedding anniversary night out on the roof top!!!
The upstairs outdoor deck is amazing! What a view. Thanks for having us.
Very cute on the deck! Inside has a lot of character, too. It's a great place to catch up with a friend with a nice ambience and a drink.
Service was active and prompt, with maybe a little hold up on the drinks. Food was great! My friend had the pesto pasta and I had the fried chicken sandwich. Both were great and tasty. Portion sizes left you feeling satisfied, but not stuffed. It was casual enough I felt I could hang out for a few drinks without holding up service.
Location is close to Penn's Landing and the river. Great location for an evening stroll before or after and close to historic Independence Hall.
It wasn't very busy, but if you want to sit outside on the deck, I definitely recommend reservations just in case.
Overall pleased and looking forward to returning!
Great atmosphere. Service was exceptional, def want to come back again.
The menu is small. Two food items we ordered have the same chicken in both. I guess this is how the food came out within minutes. The spice level was very hot with nothing provided really with the chicken to cut it or to add flavor. We moved on and had a great meal elsewhere.
Food came almost too quickly; admittedly, we had our meals picked out by the time the waitress first came, so we ordered fast, but the food was on our table within 15 minutes of sitting down, so the date felt a little too quick.
Sat us next to the bar where two parties were yelling to each other very loud and disturbingly.
Food was really good though; service was prompt; everything was reasonably priced.
Pizza was great an loved the wine
The food was excellent and the drinks were great! Sit upstairs for a nice view of Old City.
The ambiance and service was great! The menu was a bit small and they were out of one of the items that we wanted to try. Overall the food was alright. Not bad and not great.
I had a reservation, went there and the staff told me they were closing so the hours on open table and Internet in general were wrong, or they just decided to close randomly. I was not offered any explanation.
