Revivalist is a throwback to a historic Huntsville tavern that once occupied this location and embodied the parlor culture of the era. Today, generous portions of old-time hospitality and attentive service are served with a menu that is considerably more modern—inspired by European classics and American regionalism.

    The food was okay. The marrow toast was so hard it was practically inedible. I know beef carppacio is supposed to be thin but this was so thin it was stuck to the plate. The risotto was under cooked. The highlights were the pickled okra and creme brulee.

    Very disappointed with our first visit to Revivalist. Place was so loud. Background music was "tinny " and bouncing off the hard surfaces. People literally shouting over the non-ambient music. There were flies (fruitflies) flying around our table from the time the wine was poured. Appetizer was the carpaccio. It was okay, but only 2 toast pieces for half a plate of carpaccio. Needed at least 2 more ($15). We had the Shrimp and grits which were so overpowered by the sausage, you couldn't taste the shrimp. Other entre was the salmon. Cooked well, skin crispy, sauce nice but too little of it. Had haricot verts as the side. Chef ruined the lovely veg by clumping it full of black pepper and some undiscernable beige clumpy ingredient. Made every bite too peppery. Not pleasant. For desserts we had a tiny creme Brule (just okay) and a flourless chocolate espresso cake with a smear of something pink that was listed as "raspberry couli". Cake was cold and tasted like it had been in the fridge for a while. Couli (?) Too thin, flavorless and not enough to balance the dry crumbly "cake". Unfortunately our first visit will be our last...made for a memorable anniversary, but not in a good way. Food is NOT worth the price...it's just not that good. Upside, our server was very nice. Wish he had introduced himself.

    The food was great, appetizers fried green tomatoes and mussels, entrees red snapper risotto and spicy pecan salad w/salmon. The cocktails were excellent, old fashion and Lavender Gin. We had the pleasure of speaking with the visiting manager, Anthony. He was professional, knowledgeable regarding the food/beverage industry, and had some great insight on how to make the Revivalist experience even better. He even had a few minutes to show us the rooftop lounge, which is fabulous. We’ll be back again. This spot, though great now, should prove to be a Huntsville Gem in the near future.

    My first time at Revivalist. Excellent location and atmosphere for a business lunch. My shrimp and grits was outstanding. Only complaint was it was an extremely small portion, especially given the price. I look forward to going back again.

    Would not recommend. The only good thing about our experience was the waitress. The food was disappointing and not worth the price tag. Our drinks took forever- something that the waitress warned us about. However, when I looked over at the bartender, he was just chatting away, had no sense of urgency, and was slow as could be. He made one drink ever 2 minutes. Do not go here. It is not with the pricey price tag.

    I wanted this to be fabulous! The food was OK limited menu but that was to be expected. Our server was not very motivated, and the bartender was really slow getting our drinks. I did enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant the seating is superb they’ve got a really cool mural out in the courtyard, and I would go back but not for lunch.

    The food was decent. I ordered the salmon with herb tossed sweet potatoes. Delicious. My wife ordered the filet, the appetizer was decent - green fried tomatoes. The dessert crème brûlée wasn’t superb. The service was extremely poor given the value of the meal. Here were the items of concerns. - ice in an old fashioned should be cubed - server was a bit pushy wanting us to order quickly - dirty plates were never cleared - we waited 30 min for our food. The table next us and across the room received their food before we did and they walked in 10 and 20 minutes after. - server reached across the table over our unfinished entree to remove a small plate - additionally the waitress wanted us to order or dessert before we finished our entree - after waiting for our entrees we had to ‘glare’ over to get the servers attention to pay for our meal.

    Of the four in our party only one was pleased with dinner. Her baked Cornish was done expertly with crisp skin and flavorful meat. Of the other three dishes the Summer pasta was room temperature and too heavily sauced, the shrimp in the shrimp & grits was tough/overcooked, and the filet, tho a perfect rare as requested, the accompanying sides were nothing special.

    The steak and frites and fried green tomatoes have continued to be outstanding in quality and a favorite. The pasta and red snapper were less flavorful than expected. The pasta only had one of the vegetables listed on top. Neither seems to be your usual outstanding quality.

    Food is regular motel quality. Revivalist needs a good restaurant chef and cook staff. Menu is great, but quality of food greatly dumbed down. It is served with flair, but quality of food is same quality as a lower end motel breakfast buffet.

    Great food and service in a cool building with a sort of pseudo-Modern Art Deco vibe that is hard to describe, but it works. They compare very favorably to one of our better steak houses here locally, and I think they do an even better job with their side dishes at Revivalist.

    Shrimp & Grits were great so was the restaurant Week special - soft shell crab in a brioche bun with fries. The spiced pecan salad looked like it would be awesome but we ordered the lunch special with a soft drink for $15 and the salad was small, mainly spinach with very little of the other ingredients listed on the menu. Overall a good experience

    We liked the overall ambience of this restaurant and experience we had. We also had a very sweet server. But unless you are getting a steak, the food portions are really small. It’s unfortunate they are so small because everything we had was tasty. For example, four fresh gulf shrimp for an appetizer that costs around $17 is almost offensive, even for a fine dining experience during inflation. Multiple dishes we had had small portions, so for this reason I gave 4 stars. I hope the chef and management will reconsider portion sizes!

Kudos to the chef for a awesome dinner and Sasha, our server for being so helpful. Located in a lovely hotel, 106 Jefferson with a cool rooftop bar makes is perfect place for several different occasions. We will be back.

    We were told that there was a new chef which is understandable but we waited 20 minutes before a server came and an hour and a half for our food. The restaurant wasn’t booked. One of the cocktails was sent back and the pasta with veggies had virtually no veggies. Our server tried but there was obvious problems with the kitchen and bar.

    A wonderful atmosphere greeted us as we entered. We were seated by the window overlooking the outdoor dining area, which was perfect. We ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes as an appetizer, and Shrimp and Grits and Pan Roasted Salmon for the main dish. Everything was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. The wait staff was able to answer our questions about the menu and particular dishes. If you are looking for a wonderful dining experience, Revivalist is the place for you.

    Fried Green Tomatoes are the bomb! Do not mess with the recipe. RECONSIDER policy of not substituting sides. Chef, loosen up. People have different taste outside the plan. Accommodate and let the customer leave happy and satisfied!
