Revolucion Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
I really, really wanted to like this place. The food was decent (not great, but pretty good), but the service was terrible. We were seated 1/2 hour after our reservation. They gave us a free drink at the bar, so we rolled with it. But once we sat at our table, it took more than a half our to get the guacamole we ordered when we sat down. Thirty-four minutes. For guacamole. We then waited forever for the entrees and it took asking a few people to get the bill. The people next to us gave up and went to the front desk to demand their bill. The server seemed overworked, so it definitely seems like an institutional issue. This place has promise, so I hope they get their act together.
I've been to Revolucion a few times now and the experience has been consistent each time; slow service but worth it for the incredible food. They clearly want you to enjoy the meal rather than rush through it. As long as you are not in a hurry, it's probably the best place for a steak in the neighborhood.
We checked out Revolucion for a last-minute Saturday brunch and we loved it! A little crowded on the second floor where we sat, but the food was great, waitstaff was very attentive, and the ambiance was fun. Definitely try the Huarache de Cecina. It was delicious!
Made reservations for 8:15 but our schedule changed and we arrive earlier, planning to wait in the bar if necessary. Instead, they accommodated our change easily and graciously, seating us much closer to 7:00. Lovely interior, delicious food, and the service was attentive without being hovering. Will definitely return.
Dinner was great! I had the toasted coconut margarita (which was the special that night) and it was excellent! I have been craving it ever since. Joe was our waiter and he was very attentive. Would definitely go back and also recommend anyone to check it out
This restaurant is one of our go to places in the neighborhood. We are usually very satisfied. But at this visit left us disappointed. Mostly it was about the timing. A good half hour until the drinks arrived it was an hour till we had a salad and an hour and 20 minutes until we had our food. Even though it was a lovely evening outside. That is way too long to wait. Our waiter seemed to not to notice the delay and offered no explanation. When we asked where our drinks were in when they would be ready he replied "as soon as the bartender makes them". The food was as always good and well prepared. I hope this was just an off night. We will go back.
Loved this restaurant! The food ,cocktails and service were excellent! Had the tortilla soup and it has a nice thick broth with some spice. Guac and chips were tasty. The chips were light and crisp. Tried the watermelon margarita and one of their special drinks which came in a ceramic cup. Both were yummy! We had the salmon with mango topping which was a generous portion and cooked perfectly, the combo with crab cakes and skirt steak, and chicken fajitas. All were delicious. We were too full for dessert but they looked delicious.
Had a great dinner with my wife. This Chicago steakhouse is top notch! We both had the filet revolucion and each bite was very tender and delicious. Cooked perfectly medium rare. They have good local craft beers and a good margarita sangria Thursday night special that my wife enjoyed. The lava cake is a bomb dessert. Overall the food is high quality and reasonably affordable. Highly recommend Revolucion Mexican Steakhouse!
I had a lovely experience with my girlfriends. Everything was delicious from the guacamole, to the steak tacos, to the filet mignon prepared Oscar style. I will be coming back. And the five dollar Sangrias were marvelous! We sat in the colorful bar area and had a blast!
This was our 3rd time eating at The Revolucion. There is a wide variety on the menu but each time we have tried different entrees and were disappointed. Even having the chips and guacamole each time, the preparation was different and not as appealing. Good waitstaff, attentive and enjoy the outside seating but will not be back for awhile.
It's always a pleasure to eat at Revolucion. We live nearby and don't think of it as moderate in cost because we tend to eat steak when we go there. However, with business associates, we branched to other options and found them OUTSTANDING and well priced. The portions and the accompaniments make steak dinners more than adequate if one wants to split and and add in a smaller, less expensive option, too.
I ordered the short ribs which were overdone and tough - you could barely cut it with a knife when something like this should be tender and pull apart with a fork. The au gratin potatoes had no flavor and were cheesy mush. The filet/steaks are the best thing on the menu - cooked correctly and tender. The margaritas were like drinking orange juice - not good. Our server was very good and the meal was not a reflection on her.
Excellent food at a good price with very friendly service. Steaks were all great as were the apps. Just a couple miscues in the execution of the service that keeps it from 5 stars. (My wife and I had our meals for a couple minutes before the rest of the party had theirs, a slow wine refill here or there, nothing major). I will absolutely go back.
