Great meal, generous portions, nice menu selection, great service, just very loud in the bar area. It was difficult to hear the person next to me:(

This restaurant does have very nice ambience and pleasing decor. The food was very good, we tried three different appetizers. Our waitress Melissa was outstanding and very attentive. The manager was also attentive and friendly

The only down side for us was the noise level, It was hard to hold a conversation,
We were told that there was another room that was less noisy

We will go back again and dine in the quieter room. Its a great spot. Be prepared to spend 17 to 18 dollars for a drink.

Went to Revel on Saturday 10/16 on a date. Great service! Manager went around to several tables and was very hands on. My waiter was great too, accommodating. A friend of mine was in the restaurant that night and said the same about service and food. I ordered the short rib and general tso wings so yummy! Pricy but yummy. Will definitely go back.

Too loud. Felt like being in an expensive sports bar. TVs everywhere; big bar scene; bad acoustics; good food.

Nice ambiance and good food. My only gripe was that the dining tables were right next to the bar, where people were very loud. Besides that, a very nice place.

Revel was my go to place before the pandemic. They have changed to their winter menu and we had a great dinner in the quiet of the outside seating area, which felt like a mini-vacation. The pasta was amazing--and we wish them much luck in this post-pandemic return.

This was my second time at Revel. I had previously been there during resturant week & was now craving the fried eggplant with honey (an amazing dish!) that I tried last time. I also had the angus steak which was which was great but could have used some more seasoning. My friend has the skirt steak & a pasta dish as well which were delicious! I had a virgin passionfruit mojito & my friend had 2 whiskey drinks. Everything was delicious & we even had enough left overs for the following day! Will be back soon. P

Very nice experience! This is a good date night/girls night out spot. You can make it casual or dress it up and I like that about the vibe here. The service is fantastic, not too fast or slow and easily make changes to my dish without messing it up. I think it's slightly overpriced for what you get, but it's garden city. The steamed dumplings were great and I asked for salmon on top of their revel salad and it was cooked perfectly. The gelato was delicious and there really isn't anything to complain about! I wish I could have gotten my waitresses name to shout her out because she really was fantastic.

Their outside seating was comfortable and quiet (compared to the partying atmosphere inside). The staff was friendly and accommodating. My husband loved the lobster mac & cheese, while I thought the pasta with bacon bits was just okay.

We made reservations to sit outside because we wanted to enjoy a beautiful night. Inside, the ambiance was very nice with really cool music and a good vibe. But unfortunately, outside they did not have any speakers or music. All we got to hear was the sound of cars driving by. So that was disappointing. They really need some music outside. The cheese steak egg rolls were delicious. Other than that, the food was not that impressive. We had the skirt steak, meatballs, burrata raviolis and short ribs. All were ok but nothing amazing. And the drinks were nothing special either. Overall it was just ok. We wouldn't go back.

Service was horrendous.
The waiter handed over my plate and failed to mention that the plate was HOT
Plates were piling up and no one took them away before bringing the entrees over. They just kept stacking them on top of each other. Had to asked the waiter several times to take them away


Ordered burger medium, received well done
Ordered gnocchi, overly salty
Bone in rib eye, what a joke, saddest bone in rib eye
Shrimp and baked clams were ok
Fried eggplant was ok

Drinks were ehh

This will be the last time we eat here. So disappointed because we used yo enjoy it. Always loved the eggplant chips but now they tasted like the were fried with the fish & had too much breading. Roasted chicken tasted reheated & dry. Vegetables mushy and were not fresh. I had the beet salad that only had 3 beets in it and was size of small lunch
Salad. I used to love your salads & they were always ample size. It was so loud in the dining room where bar is that you couldn’t hear conversation. It was sad actually because it was a place we used to enjoy

Excellent experience. Will definitely go back every quarter when they change the menus from summer to fall to winter to spring. The veal meatballs were fantastic. Suggested that they should make an entree out of them. We enjoyed our food immensely. From the petite lamb tacos to the Tomahawk pork chops everything was yummy. The staff was welcoming and friendly. We chose Revel because of the reviews and the menu which had a lot of choices to choose from. Kudos to Alyssa our hostess. She was on point, awesome and made my birthday celebration memorable.
