Food was good. They had a kids meal for my buddy’s daughter. They leprechaun refilling mimosas even though it was after brunch which was cool. Overall good time.

Not a good valentine’s dinner experience.
Restaurant was pretty full. Had to wait along with 3 other parties that had reservations and were on time about 20 mins to be seated. Staff was trying to figure out mixed bills and food orders that had “disappeared” from their system. Drinks and Food took an average amount of time given how busy the rest was. The quality of the food was not as good as I remember.

It was Valentine’s Day and they said you could do a prix fixed menu or order a la Carter from the regular menu. We chose a la carte. We were there for close to 2 hours and never received our food. However every table around us got their food because they did the prix fixed option. The kitchen and staff were terrible and didn’t offer us anything while we waited, not a free drink, bread, chips or salsa. Nothing. They just kept saying “our food was coming right out.” The food never came. We waited until close to 10 PM before we left which was too late to go elsewhere. Terrible customer service and operations management.

My wife and I went to Revolucion for Valentine's Day 2018. We had been here a few times previously and had wonderful experiences. Unfortunately it seemed like the restaurant was overbooked and understaffed for the holiday. Our waiter wandered aimlessly about and frequently forgot where we were in our process. It took 30 minutes for our first round of drinks to arrive and 60 minutes for our food from the time we sat down (we ordered drinks nearly immediately and food about 10 minutes later). Our cocktails were perfectly delicious, and although we planned initially to have another round or wine with dinner, we never had the opportunity to order. Our food was delicious (I had the Surf and Turf, she had a Filet Mignon with a Blue Cheese crust; although, she found the Blue Cheese a bit overwhelming).

Absolutely love this place! Hostess and overall staff are very attentive and nice. No matter what you order here you won’t be disappointed. Everything on the menu is tasty!

The place smelled of smoke from the grilled steak. I’ve had better steak and scallops . The server was quite slow to bring bread to the table .

We did have a great experience. The food was wonderful though one thing could have been done better. We did the restaurant week menu. My dinner companion got the croquettes and I got the soup. The croquettes were delicious from what I was told. My dinner guy didn't care for the bed of roastedorn, but I tried it and thought it was nicely done.

The soup noted poblano peppers of which I'm not a fa. It was a really nice French onion! And the poblano's were only a few slivers. The soup maybe needed a little more beef base or maybe a little more pepper for some "kick" .

For the entree, we both got the filet mignonette. He's allergic to mushrooms and had to skip the Madeira sauce. The mignon's were perfectly done steakhouse-style. I ordered medium-rare and got a perfect cut. When Ihit the center, it was almost purple and the was the slightest hint of a "moo" when I cut into it! As I said, he is allergic to mushrooms and had to skip the meira sauce. This was low point of a wonderful meal. Given my companions mushroom allergy he couldn't do the Madeira sauce,as noted. He didn't ask for a substitutionsauce nor did our server suggest one. That was what it was. Despite that glitch, he too got a perfectly cooked piece of steak.

Dessert: tit was good. Lava cakes did lack "lava." I didn't understand the candied beetsand found them unnecessary.

Despite the details, it was agreed that we would dine here again. Noise was an issue since we were seated in the bar area. The two drunk chicks next to us didn't make for a great dining experience. If you can, try to get seated in the dining area.

Again,despite details, I would definitely eat here again!!!!!

Good vibe and decor. Varied fairly priced menu with interesting margarita twists. Food was good (7.5/10), but the service was abysmal. Waited for drinks -- and 45 minutes for chips and salsa. Entrees came out after 55 minutes, but tortilla soup arrived thereafter, inexplicably. Obviously total miscommunication from the beginning. The restaurant did comp drinks and I'd give it another try, but they have some service issues to atend to.

I had a reservation and still waited 25 minutes to be seated. Then, we waited 30 minutes for our food after we ordered. The food was fine, but not necessarily worth the wait. The restaurant was also extremely loud. I would be more inclined to leave a positive review had I not had to wait so long to sit down with a reservation.

Came here during Restaurant Week randomly; saw they were having bottomless mimosas. I was pleasantly surprised how amazing the food was and the mimosas were refreshing as well. The servers kept pouring mimosas as if it was water. The horchata French toast was to die for; so scrumptious. The pork skillet was very tasty. I definitely recommend this place for its food, service and energetic ambiance!

We did the bottomless mimosa brunch and had absolutely fabulous service. The food was delicious and the mimosas tasted great. Thanks for the great restaurant experience!

Everything was great, guacamole rustic, margaritas, pablano cream sauce over filet, delish! The 10oz filet was as good as gourmet steak houses. The atmosphere is very warm and the restaurant was very clean. We loved it!

We booked for restaurant week, and when my husband arrived, they did not have the rez, despite Open Table confirming the reservation AND me calling and leaving a message that day requesting if there were any issues that they call me. No one called me. We get our table, most of us order the lamb shank, manager comes round later to say that they dropped a tray of lamb shanks and requests we order something else given how long it takes to cook the shanks. We reorder. This is now the second mishap that has occurred, and yet at no time were we offered a round of drinks or comped apps or anything. The food was delicious, and otherwise it was great—but the service was pretty awful, and the lack of accountability they took for their mistakes was irritating—even though we were there for Restaurant Week, with drinks and apps we still spent $80/person, so it’s not like I’m cheap or something. But failing to call me, and not trying to make up for not having the entree that 4/6 people at the table ordered is kind of garbage, imo.

Amazing Service! Fun menu! The kitchen staff will try their best to accommodate your requests best of their ability! The staff are rockstars!

The food was excellent, but unfortunately, our overall experience was not too great. We took advantage of the Restaurant week menu, along with the wine pairings. While everything tasted good, the food and the wine were not served in a timely fashion, other than the first course, our wines arrived half way into our course. But again, I have to stress that the food was really good and made the trip worth it! I imagine we would give it another whirl!

Our visit to Revolucion was great. The food was very good and the service was wonderful. Both our server and the restaurant manager were nice, helpful and created a great atmosphere. We were there celebrating 3 birthdays and they were so kind and even gave us our desserts on the house. I will definitely be back.

Went here with my husband and our parents for a late new year celebration. The food was yummy and prepared in a timely manner, and the margaritas are tasty and strong!

Started with the calamari- it was cold and chewy. Scallops were over cooked. Would not eat there again.

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.
