    Very nice rooftop, outdoor seating. We had a great waitress who gave us excellent and attentive service. Food was good. Tuna miso bowl was fresh and flavorful. Panko salmon also good. Drinks were good. Waitress surprised us with very tasty dessert for our 5th anniversary of our first date at Revolution House--which was a really sweet gesture.

    My husband and I both had the Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. They were massive! We should have started with one then ordered a second if needed. The roll was fresh and the beef and onions had a hearty beefy taste. There was plenty of the homemade cheese wiz on the sandwich. Having never had this on a cheesesteak before, we tried it. Truthfully, neither of us were fans. I am sure it would appeal to many others though. It would be nice if the customer had a choice of the cheese wiz or provolone cheese which would have been much better for us. Our waitress was a delight and the atmosphere of the outdoor seating is perfect for a relaxing dinner. We loved this place and would highly recommend it to others.

    I brought my kids there on a trip last weekend. The food was blah for the price and the portions small. The seared tuna was good by itself, but the quinoa salad that came with it had no flavor and was mushy. Korean tacos were pathetic and portion was tiny. If I paid less for it, I wouldn't have been so upset. The waitress and staff were nice so there’s one good note.

    We love Revolution House! It's one of our favorite places to eat. They seem to switch up their main course menu, which we find fun! Every single meal we've had there has been incredible. I love going for the shishito pepper appetizer and the espresso martini! The service is always amazing-staff are so friendly! A must visit if you are in Old City!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
