    I picked this restaurant specifically for the brunch special the had with 2 entrees and a pitcher of mimosas for $50. I asked the waitress for the special and she brought us 2 entrees but only 2 glasses of mimosas and we also ordered an extra side of eggs that were $5. My total still came to $53. It was just frustrating that a special was advertised and not received.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Revel, and three of us chose the burger, and it was delicious. We ordered the Corn Puppies as an appetizer, and it was different than what we expected but really yummy. Our two complaints are that the appetizer came out after we finished our mains, and the prices are a little steep for what you receive but the food was excellent.

    Food was excellent - delicious with generous portions. Service was adequate, but not on a level with the food. Staff could have been more attentive, especially considering how empty the restaurant was at the time we ate. We had tickets for a play so ate somewhat early. There was an odd odor in the restaurant noticed by 2 of our group of 4. I personally didn’t notice it so it wasn’t overpowering by any means.

    Revel has been one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh for a long time. They never disappoint. I think the worst experience I’ve ever had there would be a 4/5. This particular bunch was a 5/5 though. Everything was delicious. The waiting staff was on their game and kept a good balance of being consistently available without being too imposing on the experience. If I had to complain about anything, the mimosas had quite a bit of pulp at the bottom of the carafe so the last pour of the drink wasn’t too pleasant. That said, this is such a good restaurant. You can almost always find something unique on the menu and I never hesitate to recommend this place.

    Our drinks were good, the service was great, but there’s not really any redeeming qualities about the food. It was truly awful. We got the pretzel with the beer cheese, the beer cheese legit tasted like baby formula. The margarita flatbread was half of a wheat pita with a slice of tomato and a piece of mozzarella. That was horrid. And the brussels sprouts left a lot to be desired. We decided to leave and get entrées at another place.

    Interesting food but fairly good. Service was spotty at best. While the server was very nice he put in all three courses at the same time so our food came out all too early and it felt overly rushed. I don’t think I will return.

    After many years of going to Revel for a sandwich before or after the game, we were disappointed to find out that only entrees were offered. This present menu will definitely eliminate Revel from our dining options.

    There wasn’t really any patrons in there and it still took 30’minutes to get our appetizer. It was comp’d which is appreciated but when it came it was lukewarm. The food came out in a good amount of time but was also lukewarm. I had the pasta and it didn’t really taste like anything. The brisket is good though. But overall I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant nor will I be back.

    Food is always great the service is .....well less that can be desired. But the food is great. What they need is a buss boy and dishwasher. Three or four bartenders and drinks sat on the bar for a full ten minute before our waitress (who was maxed out) could bring them. The bartenders were busy washing dishes.

    We had a wonderful waitress named Day. The atmosphere was great. But the food was a different story. My order did not come as explained in the menu (It said fingerling potatoes but came with rice) and my date ordered the brisket. He never had brisket before it was tough and the consistency of bacon. Unfortunately we will not return.

    We did not eat after we saw a employee swiping 2 tables with a floor brum. I pointed that out to the manager ( Female) and she told us that they sanitize the table after. Are you kidding me. Using a floor brum to clean tables !! If that practice is in the front of the house, how the back of the house looks like!!! I should call the Allegheny health department.

    the food here is so good. and its nearly always empty in there. I don't really know why. We've been a few times for a few different occasions and they've always been able to seat a semi large party on really short notice which is great. Menu has been different every time but each time just as good. hard to call a fancy restaurant a hidden gem but this feels like one when you go

    Went to Revel for Saturday brunch. Seemed like the manager was scurrying a bit, perhaps someone didn’t show for their shift. Our server was a delight. Brisket on the Benedict was so tender. Party of 4, and we all enjoyed our meals…🐔🧇, shrimp & grits.

    The food was average. I expected it to be better for the price. The burrata pasta was bland. Waiter was nice but horrible. Never refilled our drinks ONCE. My fiancé and I were so thirsty by the end of our meal. We had almost finished our drinks by the time our meals came out. My fiancé also ordered a beer, they never checked to see if he wanted another. Really bad service for the price!

    I was very disappointed that I booked the Mother’s Day brunch buffet for my mother because of the live music promised. My parents had one of the first reservations at 9am. They were told after asking that the music did not start until 11am so there was no music for their dining which was the reason I picked revel and roost in the first place for their Mother’s Day brunch.

    Went for Sunday brunch. Obviously understaffed and not prepared for the weekend rush. We’ve had good experiences here before, so maybe it was just an off day. The food came out slowly, and two of us were served first and the next two were served literally 15 minutes later. The food was definitely below par.
